    Vanity | 27 Oct 2016 | wgflyer
    Without mind bending drugs, leftist logic is a little unclear. I guess that’s why universities these days dedicate so much course work to it and Hollywood makes so many movies showing us how leftism really is a good thing (achievable with special effects). In realville, where practical application of any thesis is required, there isn’t much apparent logic in leftism at all. Rather, a plethora of conflicting thoughts and feelings trample one another for dominance. The two forces that keep the various leftist special interests from implosion and mutual self destruction are their ignorance of their ignorance and their hatred...

    Forbes ^ | Apr 25, 2016 | Rex Sinquefield
    Recent discussions within Los Angeles labor groups reveal inherent hypocrisy within the “Fight for $15” campaign. Unions paid plenty of lip service toward this effort, which would raise the minimum wage to $15. The Los Angeles City Council is considering a measure that would raise the city’s minimum wage to $15 by 2020, and this month California Governor Jerry Brown signed a law raising the state’s minimum wage to $15 by 2022. It seems that unions should be celebrating this supposed win for workers – yet union leaders are currently seeking an exemption to the $15-an-hour minimum wage for union...

    Wisconsin watchdog ^ | 8-20-15 | M. D. Kittle
    MADISON, Wis. — Former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold, one of the louder critics of speaking fees for government officials, still hasn’t answered his critics’ calls to release the full amount of honoraria the Democrat has pocketed. A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel piece this week revealed Feingold took in more than $100,000 in speaking fees between February 2012 and June 2013, much of that money for discussions on the corrupting influence of money in politics. The Wisconsin GOP, however, believes Feingold, the godfather of campaign finance reform, has yet to reveal all of his earnings from speaking engagements before that period. “To...

That double standard is put on steroids when it comes to conservative women who are outsiders like Palin, who is neither beholden to nor cares about the elite opinion makers and whisperers in the permanent political class. After Palin blistered and mocked liberals and the mainstream press for coddling Hillary Clinton last week, Emma Roller noted in National Journal, "nearly every reporter covering the 2008 campaign bought into" the narrative...

    No place on the planet is as beautiful and as naturally rich as California. And few places have become as absurd. Currently, three California state senators are either under felony indictment or already have been convicted. State Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) made a political career out of demanding harsher state gun-control laws. Now he is facing several felony charges for attempting to facilitate gun-running. One count alleges that Lee sought to provide banned heavy automatic weapons to Philippines-based Islamic terrorist groups. State Sen. Ron Calderon (D-Montebello), who had succeeded one brother, Thomas, in the state Assembly and was succeeded...

    One of the problems that Barack Obama has in mounting an attack against the Assad regime is that the gambit violates every argument Barack Obama used against the Bush administration to establish his own anti-war candidacy. The hypocrisy is so stunning that it infuriates his critics and stuns his supporters. Deriding the Iraq war was Obama’s signature selling point. He used it to great effect against both Hillary Clinton (who voted for the war) in the Democratic primaries and John McCain in the general election. For the last five years, disparagement of “Iraq” and “Bush” has seemed to intrude into...

In the video, Bloomberg is seen surrounded by security. Mattera approaches Bloomberg and asks, “In the spirit of gun control, will you disarm your entire security team?” Bloomberg’s reply: “Uh, you, we’ll get right back to you.” “Why can you defend yourself but not the majority of Americans?” Mattera asks as the mayor walks away....

Today, at a Republican rally in Powell, Ohio, an airplane pulling a banner attempted to capitalize on Mitt Romney’s “joke” yesterday in Michigan about not needing to show his birth certificate. The Democrats have responded by accusing Romney of having joined the “birthers,” and the airplane banner continued that theme.

The tools they are using for this purpose only add gasoline to the brightly burning fire of democrat hypocrisy. Obama has signaled that he once again will try to bypass Congress and out of thin air fabricate self-serving government rules to limit Republican fund raising. The Obama administration is considering a number of measures to compel disclosure of the kind of anonymous campaign contributions that helped finance millions of dollars of attack ads against Democrats during the 2010 elections.

Ellmers said she has a concealed carry permit and plans to carry a handgun at public events. However, even in light of the shootings she said she will not support restrictions on certain ammunition. "I think it was an isolated incident and has more to do with the individual who committed the crime than the actual ammo he was using," said Ellmers. North Carolina Congressman Health Shuler has also said in recent weeks he will carry...

    Al Gore’s purchase of a near nine million dollar Montecito mansion with an almost comical carbon footprint (nine bathrooms!) probably means that he has given up on the global warming movement and decided to become a Hollywood producer (not that he ever made much of a distinction between two). Montecito is where the creme of the Hollywood creme go when Beverly Hills gets too crowded and nouveau riche. Among others, Michael Douglas, Kevin Costner, Christopher Lloyd, Dennis Franz and Oprah have homes there – and they don’t even have Nobel Prizes. (Douglas and Costner do have Oscars though.)

    Al recently cashed in some carbon credits ... and went on a Mediterranean diet, gobbling up a $9 billion Montecito-area property. Rumor has it he may help offset the economic crisis in Greece, too ... by purchasing all of ancient Athens. Here's what reducing your carbon footprint could look like, if you were funded by Marxist revolutionaries and bought an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, six fireplaces, five bedrooms, and nine bathrooms. Conspicuously absent from the swimming pool are Al's pet polar bears.

He stopped the conversation and offered a blunt reminder of the public’s reaction to such explanations. “Be careful how you make those statements, gentlemen. The public isn’t buying that.” “My administration,” the president added, “is the only thing between you and the pitchforks.”...

I never believed they gave a damn about those people, but I’m glad they could confirm it for me. For the far left, it was never about reform and improving access. Instead, it was all about bigger government and more control over people’s lives

Perino likened what the White House has done to it being the same if people had gotten unsolicited emails from former Bush strategist Karl Rove, which Perino said would have made people "go crazy." Only Fox News is questioning these actions by the White House, and it is absolutely true that had the Bush White House done anything like...

It was pretty pathetic to witness the fake relationship that we were told would result in a marriage. I took a bet with some of my colleagues that that sucker never would happen.

    A survey of travel habits has revealed that the most environmentally conscious people are also the biggest polluters. "Green" consumers have some of the biggest carbon footprints because they are still hooked on flying abroad or driving their cars while their adherence to the green cause is mostly limited to small gestures. Identified as "eco-adopters", they are most likely to be members of an environmental organisation, buy green products such as detergents, recycle and have a keen interest in green issues.

A dozen men, crammed into the back of a pick-up truck, cruise the dimly-lit streets, looking for anywhere serving alcohol or any woman they think might be a prostitute. The municipal government in Tangerang has banned both alcohol and "any behaviour that suggests prostitution". It is one of a number of districts which, despite the fact Indonesia is a secular state, have recently brought in local Islamic-style laws.

    In the November 2006 election, the voters demanded congressional ethics reform. And so, the newly appointed chairman of the Senate Rules Committee, Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., is now duly in charge of regulating the ethical behavior of her colleagues. But for many years, Feinstein has been beset by her own ethical conflict of interest, say congressional ethics experts. As chairperson and ranking member of the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee (MILCON) from 2001 through the end of 2005, Feinstein supervised the appropriation of billions of dollars a year for specific military construction projects.

It is being erected in Gonggar County, near the Tibetan capital Lhasa, China's state-run news agency Xinhua said. The statue will rise 7m from a 5m pedestal strengthened to withstand earthquakes. Mao Zedong ordered the Chinese takeover of Tibet in 1950. The statue will be the central landmark of Gonggar County's Shangcha square, which covers about 40,000 sq metres, and is scheduled for completion in July.
