Hmnn, Naureen S. Malik, Wall Street Journal :
A small oil refinery just southeast of downtown San Antonio is on fire following an explosion, leading to a one-mile evacuation, a local fire department spokeswoman said.
An 18-wheeler that was refueling at the 13,500-barrel-a-day plant owned by AGE Refining Inc. exploded at around 11:30 a.m. local time, said Deborah Foster, a fire engineer and spokeswoman for the San Antonio Fire Department. There were 100 employees at the plant working at the time, she said.
How long will it take Obama’s laws to arrive on scence?
Obama, a play in one act, Peter Wehner, Commentary :
Here is the rather unpleasant reality, though: our president fancies himself a public intellectual of the highest order â€” think Walter Lippmann as chief executive â€” even as he and his team are accomplished practitioners of the Chicago Way. They relish targeting those on their enemies list. The president himself pretends to engage his critics’ arguments even as his words are used like a flamethrower in a field of straw men. It’s hard to tell if we’re watching a man engaged in an elaborate political shell game or a victim of an extraordinary, and nearly clinical, case of self-delusion. Perhaps there is some of both at play. Regardless, President Obama’s act became tiresome long ago.
A boring play. A bad play.
Bye-Bye Obey: New York Slimes :
Representative David Obey of Wisconsin, chairman of the Appropriations Committee and one of the most powerful and longest-serving Democrats in Congress, announced today that he will not seek re-election and will step down after 41 years.
This the man who writes the checks.
Clueless in Atlanta, via Fausta :
Quick forward the video to Janet Napolitano. We have four attempted terror acts by radicial Muslims within the last six months and these moron at CNN think that foreclosures cause terrorism. Nobody tell these twits that the Tooth Fairy doesn’t exist either.
The clue train only runs north, from Kathy Shaidle, Five Feet of Fury :
As for the normal Muslims in America, one day, our average, common, ordinary, American-born and bred, employed, educated, moderate Muslims living in middle-class homes with pregnant wives will take revenge against all of us American Zionist Crusaders to pay for the indignities we have heaped upon them these past few centuries.
Bad things happen to people who act stupid, from Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit :
Senior in High School Travels to Mexico to Learn How to Smuggle Human Beings… Comes Home in Coffin (Video)
She wanted to learn how to smuggle human beings.
Instead, this pretty high school senior was murdered.
Nobody should be murdered. However people who make bad decisions often suffer bad outcomes. Elisabeth Mandala made a bad decision. She will make no more. There is a lesson in her death for those willing to take heed and learn.
