Matt Lauer Weeps for Hitler

NBC's 'Today' Frets Celebrations After bin Laden's Death Were 'Very Disturbing' to Children

  "...your children are going to see, and have already seen, people in the streets celebrating about the death of someone and that's a contradictory image for them." Today contributor and psychiatrist Gail Saltz replied: "Absolutely, very disturbing for them."

NBC Frets over Celebrations After bin Laden's Death

Raise your hand if you think you live on the same planet as do Matt Lauer, and the rest of the Democrat Media Complex.

Obama's pretty smart gambit?

Obama's pretty smart gambit?

Rush spoke for me today by saying he was certain Osama bin Laden is dead, but not certain it just happened.  He recounted being told, by an unimpeachable source (Cheney?), that bin Laden was seen riding a horse in the very Tora Bora complex that was obliterated just moments later by US air strikes.  But, even if that's so, it's pretty damned smart of Obama to call al-Qaeda on their fraud. They've lost the illusion that bin-Laden is alive, and Obama, by killing an Osama stand-in, gets the credit for doing what Bush did at Tora Bora, but couldn't prove.   Who's going to disprove it?  Bin Laden is dead, and has been for eight years.  I'm just saying.

New York Times Crap

Where to Live to Avoid a Natural Disaster
Safe places to live (NYT)
Weather disasters and quakes: who’s most at risk? The analysis below, by Sperling’s Best Places, a publisher of city rankings, is an attempt to assess a combination of those risks in 379 American metro areas. Risks for twisters and hurricanes (including storms from hurricane remnants) are based on historical data showing where storms occurred. Earthquake risks are based on United States Geological Survey assessments and take into account the relative infrequency of quakes, compared with weather events and floods blah blah blah.

So there you have it, from the New York Times, which famously tells us what a grand job our government and its chief executive are doing. Okay, I didn't try to get a PhD in this chart, and why should I?  The reason to have charts is to allow the viewer to assimilate tons of data graphically, and in short order.   West coast safest in the USA (Dallas most unsafe)? San Andreas Fault, anyone?

The case for impeaching Obama

by Gunther Schnitzel

  Articles of Impeachment Against George W. Bush
(Center for Constitutional Rights)

Article I
George W. Bush has abused his powers by violating the constitutional rights of citizens, by directing or authorizing the National Security Agency and various other agencies within the intelligence community to conduct electronic surveillance outside of the statutes Congress has prescribed as the exclusive means for such surveillance.

Article II
George W. Bush has subverted the Constitution, its guarantee of a republican form of government, and the constitutional separation of powers by undermining the rightful authority of Congress to declare war, oversee foreign affairs, and make appropriations. He did so by justifying the war with false and misleading statements and deceiving the people of the United States as well as Congress.

Article III
George W. Bush has abused his power by violating the constitutional and international rights of citizens and non-citizens by arbitrarily detaining them indefinitely inside and outside the United States, without due process, without charges, and with limited , if any, access to counsel or courts.

Article IV
He has formally declared his intent to violate the laws enacted by Congress by appending a "signing statement" to legislation that asserts his right to carve out exceptions to legislation as he sees fit, thereby abrogating to himself legislative powers reserved solely to Congress.
I ran across this old post at site called Unconfirmed Sources.  So, there's that. *snort*

The University Has No Clothes

  Pity the American parent! Already beleaguered by depleted 401(k)s and gutted real-estate values, Ponzi schemes and toxic paper, burst bubbles and bear markets, he is now being asked to contend with a new specter: that college, the perennial hope for the next generation, may not be worth the price of the sheepskin on which it prints its degrees. []
You get the gist of this NY Mag article. Not only are most degrees granted to students who will never use the disciple they studied, but in some cases (Journalism) can destroy an industry.  Ask most kids why they're studying economics and I bet they answer "to get a decent job."  In Economics?  Hell no. Any job.  If you want to get hired by any company today, with the goal of moving into management, you'll have to produce a degree.  Does it matter what the degree is in?  Nope.  It shows your prospective employer that you had at least enough ability to get into college, and finish.  I remember the plaintive cry from the 70's; "We're loaded with 5th rate economists, but nobody can fix the toilet."  Guess who's making the big bucks today?   But, I'm carried away here with my own biases and opinions (as if anything else matters, wot).

Managment Trainee Class Peter Thiel is a venture capitalist with strong misgivings about college [...] In 1998, Thiel co-founded PayPal, and six years later, he made the first angel investment in Facebook. [...] Thiel is deeply skeptical of top-down R&D and anything that smells like groupthink. [...]

When I spoke to Thiel from his home in San Francisco in late February, he offered much the same justification for his major salvo in the fight against college—a philanthropic initiative called 20 Under 20. The program, also known as the Thiel Fellowship, will award twenty students 19 years old and younger $100,000 each and the mentor­ship of some of the most prominent entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley. The catch? The winners have to stay out of college for two years. [ME ME ME!] They are to be announced this month.

Is Thiel onto something?  Listen to the reaction from one of our smug media scolders, and decide.

Jacob Weisberg, of Slate, has called the Thiel Fellowship a “nasty” and narcissistic idea that will retard the participants’ intellectual development and funnel whatever altruistic energies they have into getting rich, like Thiel.
ME ME ME! This is a long article which explores other stuff, but which I ain't real it all.
