States should rebel against them. This isn’t about the planet, it’s about power. Raw political power.

“We’ll observe Earth Day when the EPA obeys the law.”
Don’t hold your breath on that one.
I actually tend to follow most of these. I eat mostly at home, unless I’m traveling (and even then I’ll cook, if I have a kitchen), and rarely go out. I shop the outer perimeter of the grocery store (meat and produce), and tend to avoid the inner aisles.
This is terrible. More thoughts from Instapundit:
When I was in college, I interned for a criminal defense attorney who told me that although most people, including defense lawyers, assumed that the FBI lab was a gold standard, he always sent stuff to an independent lab for verification, and half the time it came back with a different result from the FBI lab. He said he didn’t understand why more lawyers didn’t do that, since a different result in itself might produce reasonable doubt.
The amount of injustice in our “justice” system is increasingly disturbing. And there are rarely any consequences for it, except to those unjustly punished.
…left to drown by Barack Obama. Thoughts from a fellow Democrat:
As Renzi was questioned about the incident, Obama was mute on the killings. He failed to interject any sense of outrage or even tepid concern for the targeting of Christians for their faith. If a Christian mob on a ship bound for Italy threw 12 Muslims to their death for praying to Allah, does anyone think the president would have been so disinterested? When three North Carolina Muslims were gunned down by a virulent atheist, Obama rightly spoke out against the horrifying killings. But he just can’t seem to find any passion for the mass persecution of Middle Eastern Christians or the eradication of Christianity from its birthplace.
FTR, I don’t believe that Barack Obama is a Christian. When he says he is, as with much else, he is simply lying. He doesn’t believe in anything higher than himself.
Cathy Young punches up at him over freedom of expression:
Trudeau’s biases reflect a common left-wing mindset that sees the world through the lens of “privilege” and “oppression” based on race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity and/or religion: non-privileged good, privileged bad (to paraphrase George Orwell). The result is a bizarre inverse caste system in which right and wrong depend almost entirely on the parties’ places in the hierarchy of oppressions — but only in the traditional Western social order.
From this perspective, because Muslims are a “non-privileged” group in the West, criticism of even the most militant forms of Islam is bigoted “hate speech.”
The Left is insane.
I’m running it in VirtualBox. It looks like crap, and I want to adjust the appearance (e.g. resolution). But when I load that window, it’s bigger than the screen, with no way to scroll or get to other parts of it. Any suggestions?
Are some speakers more equal than others? I hope this is overturned, too.
We were promised a $2500 decrease in premiums. We’re getting a 41% increase.
It’s like the whole thing was some sort of scam.
