PITY THE POOR LAW SCHOOL STU…OH, WAIT: CONGRATULATIONS ON THEIR STRENGTH

Please excuse the idiotic title.  It is used because this blog is about an idiotic claim. Excerpted from an essay in the National Law Journal by William Desmond, a third year Harvard law school student who also is an editor of the Harvard Law Review (which should put some fascinating thoughts of remorse into more than a few tuition-paying parents): Overthe last week, much has...

DE BLASIO NON GRATA (CONT.)

If the head of a police organization called New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio a “total nincompoop” would it be fair to say that relations between the mayor and the police are not as good as they might otherwise be? Read the beginning of Kirstan Conley, Michael Gartland and Bruce Golding\’s article in today\’s New York Post and see why: MayorBill de Blasio has again spit...

FRACKING & THE RUBLE IN RUBBLE

The Russian ruble has lost half hits value this year (that\’s not figurative, folks – down 49%). The reason?  Fracking  You know, hydraulic fracturing, better known as fracking:  which is being done in spite of Barack Obama and most of his fellow Democrats\’ opposition to it (though you can bet they\’ll try taking credit for the benefits it is...

ABOUT THAT TALIBAN MASS-MURDER OF CHILDREN

I assume you don\’t need me to tell you that the Taliban\’s cold-blooded murder of at least 125 schoolchildren in Peshawar, Pakistan (and don\’t be surprised if the count rises a lot more) is beyond horrific. But I have a few questions about it. Isn\’t this the same taliban that President Bush removed from power in Afghanistan, because it was a terrorist hellhole...

JUAN WILLIAMS GETS IT

Amazing, isn\’t it, how much racism emanates from people who profess to be against racism? I\’ve written those words many times in here.  And, as the email exchange between Sony head Amy Pascal and Producer Scott Rudin continues to boil, Juan Williams – no stranger to this kind of racism – has written an excellent column about it. A few salient...

MICHAEL BROWN AND ERIC GARNER AS DIVERSIONARY OPPORTUNITIES

Someone (we can\’t see who, but the sign\’s language suggests it is a child) was holding this sign at one of the protests against the killing of  Michael Brown and Erc Garner: Let\’s see how many things are wrong what the sign says: -First off, I am still waiting for someone to tell me why either incident was racial in nature.  In both cases, the only...

THE SHARPTON MARCH AND THE MARCH FOR LIFE: A COMPARISON

Yesterday, in beautiful late fall weather, about 10,000 people converged on Washington D.C. at the behest of al Sharpton, his “National Action Network” and other similar-minded groups, to protest the killing of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and other Black people by the police.  Other than a few general shibboleths about police brutality, no protests were made about...

DE BLASIO NON GRATA

It stands to reason that New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, a hardline leftist, with a history of criticizing aggressive police procedures, was never going to be a big hit with the police union. But his reaction to the Eric Garner incident, in which Garner died after being physically taken down to the ground by police, apparently was the last straw. From Tara Palmeri\’s article...

CNN & THE FERGUSON WITNESSES

A short time ago, I watched a segment on CNN in which, believe it or not, the Ferguson, Missouri grand jury  proceeding was criticized for calling too many witnesses.  And I just read an article at cnn.com which also questions the number of witnesses called.  Here are a few key segments: The grand jury in the case of Michael Brown\’s shooting didn\’t...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from Michele Bachmann. As you know – or, more exactly, as you have relentlessly been told by the left and what passes for mainstream media – Ms. Bachmann is an utter idiot who would be lucky to successfully tie the laces on her Maude Frickett sensible shoes each morning. To others, she is a lawyer, a successful business entrepreneur and a three-term...

BS STATISTICS & COLLEGE CAMPUS SEXUAL ASSAULT

Enough of this BS. I have heard the “statistic” that 19% of college females are sexually assaulted one time too many.  Make that 1,000 times too many, since it has been repeated endlessly by breathless “journalists” who do not know what they are talking about….but apparently think this “finding” is too good not to report. Four months ago today, Ashe...

RACISM IN HOLLYWOOD

Over the last several days, there has been a lot of noise over the release (via North Korea\’s hacking of Sony Pictures\’ material) of an exchange between Sony\’s head, Amy Pascal, and producer Scott Rudin, in which they speculate on President Obama\’s taste in movies. After Pascal was invited to attend a breakfast with Mr. Obama in November which was organized by...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

This maybe a bit of a surprise, but today\’s quote comes to us from the late Richard Nixon.  It seems that Mr Nixon, during an interview with David Frost, made a statement about the presidency that our current Oval Office occupant has wholeheartedly endorsed. When queried on the legal limitations a president works with in, Mr Nixon said this: “Well, when the president...

THE BLACK CONGRESSIONAL STAFF WALKOUT

Did you know that a group of Black congressional staff members has decided it would be a great idea to disrupt the work of the house members and senators they serve during one of the busiest times of the year, by walking off their jobs to protest the grand jury decisions in Ferguson, Missouri and Staten Island, New York? From an article at the Daily Beast: “Black staffers on Capitol...

THE AP\’S GORED OX

There\’s nothing like getting its own ox gored to motivate a news organization to finally acknowledge the opaqueness of the Obama administration. From an article at the just-gored Associated Press:  The State Department has failed to turn over government documents covering Hillary Rodham Clinton\’s tenure as secretary of state that The Associated Press and others requested...
