Julia, Obama's avatar for today's leech.

Question of the Week: Who Is Your Favorite Political Cartoonist?

Res Ipsa Loquitor

Dan Mitchell axed that question last March.  I missed it then.  I also missed the Julia campaign. She's a make-believe leech created by the Obama campaign to show how big government can provide cradle-to-grave handouts. The full series can be found at this link.   He writes, "This gem about Obamanomics is the most-viewed professional cartoon in the history of this blog."    Just classic. I'll vote for Michael Ramirez.

The Obama Regime

Hitler's Mustache               

  Slowly at first, then all of a sudden, the Obama administration has devolved into the Obama regime. Obama does whatever he wants. Those pesky impediments on his predecessors — namely, federal law, the separation of powers, and the Constitution — have proved as tough as tissue paper in containing Obama’s ambition to impose statism on America. From Obamacare to unions to telephones, it’s basically another day, another decree.

There is no provision in the Constitution that authorizes the president to enact, to amend, or to repeal statutes.” Justice John Paul Stevens , 1998

“I have to figure out what I can do outside of Congress through executive actions,” Obama reportedly told the Congressional Black Caucus last month. In Jacksonville on July 25, Obama announced, “Where I can act on my own, I’m going to act on my own. I won’t wait for Congress.” As Politico’s Edward-Isaac Dovere explained: “The president is done caring about congressional Republicans calling him a dictator.”

It does appear that there's movement towards acknowledging what we've known for four years. However, the closest the  NR author comes to recommending a course of action is commenting on a Justice  Stevens quote  from the Clinton era (inset)

Obama sees things differently. For him, the Constitution is for chumps, and the law is for losers. In History of the World Part I, Mel Brooks observed: “It’s good to be the king.” Yes, but it’s better to be Obama.

What's called for here are Thomas Jefferson quotes.

Insight: In Fukushima end-game, radiated water has nowhere to go

Res Ipsa Loquitor

  Some 330,000 tons of contaminated water - enough to fill more than 130 Olympic swimming pools - has been pumped into storage pits and above-ground tanks at the crippled facility.

The sheer scale of the build-up has prompted some experts and officials to warn that in order to focus on containing the most toxic waste, less contaminated water will have to be dumped into the sea. [Full]

Boo Hoo Fricking  Hoo.
  • There are 187,189,915,062,857,142,857 gallons of water in the Pacific Ocean. 
  • 1 gallon of water =~ 8.345 lbs
  • 2000 lbs / 8.345 lbs/gal = 239.65 gal per tonne
  • Fukushima has 330,000 tonnes of contaminated water, or 79,200,000 gal (330,000*240)
  • If all of Fukishima's contaminated water was dropped into the Pacific ocean, it would represent  4.2309972e-13%  of the total
Your mind cannot grasp the insignificance of that number.  So why don't they just do it?  That's right, the Greenpeace lobby of nutters. That mindset has kept the United States from drilling for what is possibly the worlds largest store of oil.  Instead, we've allowed Muslims like the Saudis to have their way with us. So go ahead Japan, do what you have to with no apologies. Come to think of it, Red China has a population of 1.344 billion.  How many gallons per person is that?

I'll let someone else figure out how many tonnes of irradiated water were produced by all the under sea nuclear bomb tests.

Love the osprey vid.  Here's one that I photographed two weeks ago in a tree about 500 yards from the north end of the runway at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.  A retired Fish & Wildlife Service told me that the male catches the fish, eats the head, and takes the tail to the female. - Tom Mann

I want to say this.  If you read the Bible, you know that Muslims subscribe to the very same laws given by God to Moses (Exodus).  They were harsh; stoning, killing for damned near any offense, violation, sin sacrifices, etc.  If they want to remain true to those precepts, in all the backwater strongholds Islam has  created, so be it.  But once they start trying to impose that doctrinedemanding special treatment, and a separate Res Ipsa Loquitorcode of lawson other cultures, they ought expect to be reviled.  Any threat of them propagating it must be resisted by all and any means necessary; to not  do so is cultural suicide.

So, even if the majority of Muslims in America are, in most respects, just like any other immigrant population group,  the exceptions are
deal killers.

They, Muslims, are in a club identical to the Italian mafia
answerable to the most radical Islamo activist in the community, no matter how he interprets the Koran. Their choices are the same that people in Columbia, and now Mexico, have when the drug cartels want something.  The same choice a businessman has when  Joe Pesci says he wants to be a partner. Do what they want, or be dead.  Other than that, I have no problem with them.  Here's some Iranian women in 1960Ahem.
