    Feel free to add your own in the comments. You know you live in upside-down land if: * You can get arrested for expired tags on your car, but not for being in this country illegally. * Your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more it doesn't have. * The Supreme Court of the United States can rule that lower courts cannot display the 10 Commandments in their courtroom while sitting in front of a display of the 10 Commandments. * Children are forcibly removed from parents who appropriately...
  • Counter-intuitive “fixes” to what ails California: Bizarro-fornia

    When we were (very) young, Superman comics had a series that featured Bizarro - which was sort of a Superman mirror image set of characters with an upside-down approach to life. The Bizarro characters had strange speech that helped describe their character. Comments meant the opposite of normal meaning, such as “bad” meant “good.” Bizarro was a flawed imitation of the real thing, characterized by unpredictable, erratic behavior. California has arrived at its “Bizarro” stage. You think not? Consider these developments: . . .

    Politics: "I'm trying to save the planet," declares House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, which is a lot for one person. Maybe she should just try to save herself from the embarrassment that comes with spouting such inanities.When challenged in an interview with about her bullheaded refusal to let Republicans submit energy policies for approval, Pelosi resorted to risible hyperbole to justify her iron-fisted rule of the House parliamentary process. "I'm trying to save the planet; I'm trying to save the planet," she responded. "I will not have this debate trivialized by their excuse for their failed policy." If the San...

    Clinton's Popularity Up in State, Even Among Republicans By RAYMOND HERNANDEZ Published: February 22, 2005 Remember Hillary Rodham Clinton and the conventional wisdom about how polarizing a figure she is? Well, think again. Recent polls have shown that Mrs. Clinton, the junior senator from New York, may have turned a corner politically, sharply reducing the number of voters in the state who harbor negative views of her. Pollsters say the change is remarkable for a woman who has long been shadowed by a seemingly implacable group of voters - commonly referred to as Hillary haters - who dislike her, no...
