Lessons for life, Don’t step on Superman’s cape and don’t piss in the girls’ room, unless you are really a girl.
Great quotes in non-history:
I will find the real killer or killers, if have to look on every golf course in America.
I will find the real cause of high energy prices, even if I have to play golf every Sunday.
Barack “Dumbo” Obama.
Looking for the bogeyman, Jackiie Calmes, New York Times, via Steve Gilbert Sweetness & Light :
President Obama sought again to show his concern for high gasoline prices, announcing on Thursday at a public event in Reno that the Justice Department is forming a team to investigate possible fraud in oil markets.
Mr. Obama last month directed his attorney general, Eric H. Holder Jr., to probe any reports of price-gouging.
Mind you, Obama has no evidence of fraud, but hie will investigate it anyhow.
from, John, Power Line :
An interesting question: given Obama’s ignorance of the economy, is he really dumb enough to believe that “speculators” are to blame for high gas prices? Presumably his advisers would clue him in, if he didn’t know any better. But then, why is he complaining about rising gas prices, when both he and his Secretary of Energy have made it clear that they wanted energy costs to increase to European levels?
Just how dumb is Dumbo?.
Is fair, fair? Arthur C. Brooks, Washington Post :
It’s hardly a shock that seven in 10 Americans believe in the American dream. If you descended from immigrants, ask yourself: Why did my ancestors come here? I suspect it wasn’t to find a fairer system of forced income redistribution. It was to find a place where they could get a fair shake, where they could start their own business, and where hard work and good ideas would be rewarded.
Politicians have denied the core American belief in opportunity at their peril. In 1972, Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern delivered a campaign speech to blue-collar workers at a rubber factory near Akron, Ohio. He announced his plan to raise estate taxes to dramatically reduce inheritances and to redistribute the money to people like those assembled. He felt sure his message would resonate with his working-class audience.
Instead, he was booed.
I admit that fair is fine concept. I’ll be darned if anybody can actually define. Further, those nation state which tried to implement economic systems based on fairness, only produced near universal poverty.
Dateline PRD, People’s Republic of Dearbornistan, from Gautham Nagesh, Hill :
Controversial Florida Pastor Terry Jones said he will follow through on his plan to protest outside an Islamic center in Michigan next week despite a judge’s order to stay away from the mosque for three years, according to a report from the Detroit Free Press.
Jones had planned to protest against jihad and sharia outside the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn on Friday, the largest mosque in a metro-Detroit region that is home to one of the largest populations of Arab-Americans.
However, Judge Mark Somers ordered Jones and Pastor Wayne Sapp to jail after a jury determined they would likely breach the peace. Somers set a $1 cash bond for Jones and Sapp and ordered them not go to the mosque or adjacent property for three years.

Fighting like a girl, Stacy has the viral video, link . A guy goes in the little girls room. He apparently refused a polite request to leave. The rest follows as naturally as stink follows shit. Well done girls.
More, Rosslyn Smith, American Thinker :
The victim is transgendered and chose to use the ladies room. That facility was already in use by a girl who evidently had not learned in school that gender is merely a social construct.
I beg to differ with Ms Smith. The dude was not a victim but a perp. Any dude that choose to go into an occupied women’s restroom is lucky to be alive.
Very interesting, in Dearbornistan, burning a book is considered provocative. In Baltiimore, men are free to walk into occupied women ‘s restrooms.
