The problem is evil.

Hogewash posted this quote from Andrew Klavan, and I’m stealing it.

To suggest you have the solution to the eternal problem of evil in the form of addressing your pet peeve or of blaming and attacking your political opponents is disgraceful. It is to use the bodies of the slain for a soap box. It degrades you and insults the victims.

A great many people are acting surprise that evil exists in New Zealand.

It does, and short of complete de-population it always will. Our choice is what we do about it.

A federal judge’s case dismissal is getting some attention because of an apparent note-to-self that didn’t get removed from the published order.

The writer was apparently dissatisfied with a statement summarizing the requirements for a false advertising claim. The parenthetical on page 11 reads: “(Meh I need a better rule statement than this.)”.

U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel of San Diego signed the Feb. 5 order, but one of Curiel’s law clerks likely wrote the “meh” phrase, according to the Recorder.

Back when I was studying, there was a story about a bunch of honors year students demonstrating their software engineering project for the year. With all the students and staff watching, they initiated the program, and the code started executing.

Now, these projects were major efforts, involving several small teams working together over the course of months. A lot of code.

And in this case something went wrong. Who knows what it was, but it was deep within the program where things went wrong.

Thus resulting in the sole error message, long forgotten by an unimportant remember of the team in some obscure function.

“It’s F***ked”

Sowell on the welfare stat


Quote of the day – protect what?

Witness the absurdity that is the liberal agenda.

We pediatricians are being inundated with permission slips all day long. My paperwork has doubled over the last ten years in no small part because of idiotic school rules requiring parents and docs to sign off on virtually every common sense OTC item. They range from Tylenol and ibuprofen to hand lotion, sunscreen, and bug spray. Each requires its own special form. This is in addition to the actual prescription meds we prescribe like antibiotics and inhalers. It’s absolutely ridiculous when you consider these kids can literally sign for their own abortions without their parents’ permission.

Quote of the Day – Crisis edition

Via Instapundit.

I’ll believe it’s a crisis when the people who tell me it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis.

Quite. It’s interesting how those who claim that our demise is imminent never seem to actually do something about this supposed imminent demise.

Example: the people who tell us that fossil fuels are ruining the environment… while flying across the country.

Or this classic.

Quote of the Day

Had I just gazed the world through my Twitter feed, I would think Chick-fil-A was on the verge of bankruptcy. . . and also that Ron Paul was president, gay marriage was legal, and President Obama didn’t have a decent chance of losing the election.”

Via instapundit.

For those who don’t get the joke, Chick-fil-A is doing record sales thanks to the response to the torrent of hatred they’ve received from those who regard opposition to their agenda as… hate.

And don’t get me started on Ron Paul supporters. Ugh.

Blogging would be heavier but I’m working on a rather lengthy post which has taken up a lot of my spare time.


Quote of the day – Outdated political lines edition

Some people aren’t keeping up with political reality.

Um, sorry, Charlie… it’s not “all true.” Not even close. Ask Tea Party-backed Allen West or Tim Scott. Or Tea Party-backed Marco Rubio. If someone is still pushing this “Tea Party is racist” meme after all this time, it is only evidence of that person’s inability to break free from the Leftist echo-chamber.

Are there racists in the Tea Party? Of course, the Tea Party is one of the biggest political movements in America today. That’s gonig to include some racists.

Do those people represent the vast majority of Tea Party members? Of course not.

More Liberal Tolerance Caught on Camera


“If a liberal journalist were to produce the kind of footage at any one Tea Party, we would not be allowed to forget about it for the next five years,” Hartsock said.

Quote. I doubt we’ll be seeing too many responses like this. Seems all the lefties are too busy telling conservatives that Regan would have hated them, or bashing Palin for being “too partisan” in her speech celebrating one of the greatest conservatives that ever lived.


Quote of the day

Heh, so true.

GORDON PETERSON, HOST: It’s been a terrible winter. If global warming is the problem, why are we having such a tough winter? Well Al Gore told Gail Collins of the New York Times there’s about a four percent more water vapor in the air now in the atmosphere than there was in the ’70s because of warmer oceans and warmer air, and it returns to earth as heavy rain and heavy snow. That’s what Al Gore says.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Look, if Godzilla appeared on the Mall this afternoon, Al Gore would say it’s global warming


…because the spores in the South Atlantic Ocean, you know, were. Look, everything is, it’s a religion. In a religion, everything is explicable. In science, you can actually deny or falsify a proposition with evidence. You find me a single piece of evidence that Al Gore would ever admit would contradict global warming and I’ll be surprised.


Quote of the day

From the “delusions we have no intention of correcting” department.

The delusion that John Key is a hapless fool who’s somehow mysteriously gotten his hands on the reins of power remains very much alive within New Zealand lefties; this was the tired old line I got spun as recently as this afternoon, by one of the internet’s best-known Labourites (with a nice dollop of ‘if you don’t praise Labour, you’re a rightie’ for good measure).

The left simply isn’t going to get anywhere until they acknoledge a few things.

  1. Key didn’t get where his is today because he’s all smile and no brains.
  2. National doesn’t want to see the country fall flat on it’s face, it’s not going to sell off the country, it’s not going to slash government expenditure, and you can trust them at least as much as Labour, if not more.
  3. Claiming all the above as a central campaign strategy last time has done Labour a lot of damage this time around as people realize the sky hasn’t fallen.

Good luck with that.
