Thanks to frequent photographer Jason, who writes: Taken a couple of weeks ago in Cary, NC…..this one seems to touch on most of the pillars of moonbattery…

Steve Jobs, R.I.P.

Posted by  ▪  October 5, 2011
Sad news.  Steve Jobs has died, not long after he resigned from Apple. My prior post about Jobs, An Apple what if. An American corporate hero.  He will be missed.  
 

Sarah Palin not running

Posted by  ▪  October 5, 2011
Just breaking on the Mark Levin Show.  Link to audio is here.  Written statement is here Not considering third party because would guarantee an Obama victory. My initial thoughts: Probably for the better in the drive to unseat Obama, but only because of the political corruption of the media and establishment Republicans, who have…

Did Amazon sell out the rest of the nation?

Posted by  ▪  October 5, 2011
You may remember that Amazon.com stopped doing business through “affiliates” (websites and blogs) in California, after the state passed a law requiring companies like Amazon to collect state sales taxes on purchases made through California affiliates. Amazon has settled with California and will resume its relationships, but it sounds like a sell out to…

Open

Some questions of the day: Will Russ Feingold have a reunion with his former staffer at the Occupy Wall Street protest?  And why did the former staffer just turn his Twitter account private? Madison, Wisconsin progressives are traveling to D.C. for this weekend’s protests, what possibly could go wrong? How is it that the 1% now are…

Herman Cain Occupies #OccupyWallStreet

Posted by  ▪  October 5, 2011
Think Progress is in a tizzy because Herman Cain told it like it is as to the politics of jealously and envy which are the driving force bechind the Occupy Wall Street movement and the Democratic Party’s election strategy.
 

George Mason U. Law School Dean gets it right

Posted by  ▪  October 5, 2011
George Mason University School of Law is considered “conservative,” at least by law school standards. So when CAIR played the Islamophobe card and demanded that the school shut down a speech by Nonie Darwish , Dean Daniel Polsby said no thanks to CAIR’s attempt to squelch dissenting voices: It appears that there is need to clarify…

More Leftist Hypocrisy: The MSA 11 vs. Laws Restricting Abortion Clinic Protests

Posted by  ▪  October 5, 2011
Several nights ago, I found myself arguing with a hyperpriviledged, self-identified anarcho-socialist (don’t ask me how that works) about the MSA 11.  He and his friends believed them to have been convicted by a racist Orange County jury, under unconstitutional laws. As we were discussing the constitutionality of political “speech” that made…

Best #OccupyWallStreet Tweet Ever

Posted by  ▪  October 5, 2011
Doubly good. First, because the tweet by CNN reporter Alison Kosik was hysterical, and second, because the humorless leftist reaction (added: here, here) to the tweet caused her to take it down, but it lives on because people grabbed screenshots.
 

Science: Leftist Anti-Semitism At Anti-Business Protests Predictable

Posted by  ▪  October 5, 2011
Professor Jacobson and Andrew Breitbart’s recent coverage of anti-Semitic incidents at the Occupy Wall Street protests were no surprise to me.  A top notch study by political scientists Neil Malhotra and Yotam Margalit back in 2009 found that triggering anti-semitic concepts increased support for anti-business policies, and that Democrats were much…

Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded scientific denier

Posted by  ▪  October 5, 2011
There is a lesson here, it’s that we cannot allow science to become religion, and must always question scientific authority particularly when it is used for political purposes. From The NY Times (emphasis mine): Israeli scientist Daniel Shechtman won the 2011 Nobel Prize in chemistry on Wednesday for his discovery of quasicrystals, a…

Can’t Stop The Signal – UW-Stout Caves

Posted by  ▪  October 5, 2011
Facing legal action and Internet backlash, University of Wisconsin-Stout has decided to retract their decision to force a professor to take down controversial Firefly and anti-fascism posters:  In retrospect, however, it is clear that the removal of the posters – although done with the best intent – did have the effect of…

Rats Good, Pilgrims Bad

Posted by  ▪  October 5, 2011
Sums up the bumper stickers of this West L.A. lefty’s Prius.  Of course, thanks to experimentation on rats and other animals, we aren’t dying in droves at young ages like the pilgrims.
 

The entire mainstream media will jump on this to impugn the entire #OccupyWallStreet movement

Posted by  ▪  October 4, 2011
Just like they did when they found a crazy sign at a Tea Party rally. On the other hand, it might be dismissed as a mere aberration, with serious caution urged not to use the actions of a few to impugn an entire movement. (h/t comment by myiq2xu) Update:  More of the same here (h/t @AndrewBreitbart).

Mass. Senate Debate Tonight

Posted by  ▪  October 4, 2011
I’ll be watching the Massachusetts Senate Democratic Debate tonight at 7 p.m. because it will be the first appearance of Elizabeth Warren.  I haven’t decided what to do in the race, despite the overwhelming reader vote to support Brown, but I’ll be listening. The debate will be live streamed on the Boston…
