And if that wrecks our relationship with the Five Eyes, so be it. They hate us too. Screw 'em. Amen. Let them all fend for themselves for a while. See how they enjoy life without our support. They’ll come crawling back soon enough, and then we can set the conditions for working with them again.

The left never gives in. They're impervious to reason. It's in the name - "progressive". They can't stop, ever. It's like sharks. If they stop swimming, they die.

MM @ 10:06 That's a great article. “Culture and economics are inseparably intertwined. Certain economic systems allow families to thrive. Thriving families make market economies possible.” The idea that that statement is even debatable, is a big part of what's wrong with our country today.

The U.K. Home Office, which oversees immigration and passports, among other things, sent the Iranian national a letter that said the book of Revelations is “filled with imagery of revenge, destruction, death and violence,” according to the Independent. There are no words.

As I said once before, legalization may not work so well with a welfare state, if it leads to a bunch of unproductive stoners sponging off the rest of us. Maybe we could start with our popular culture (and WAY too many elected officials) simply not promoting or glamorizing marijuana (and other, worse drugs). How about that? It wouldn't eliminate it, but an active effort to portray it as uncool and gross would likely lower demand quite a bit. That approach certainly worked with cigarettes.

At the MCI Center... uh...Verizon Center...uh, I mean Capital One Arena for Caps vs Lightning. Hopefully a preview of the playoffs come late May.

Harvard researchers say certain ADHD medications may increase risk of psychosis Something that most people with an ounce of common sense could have (and have) guessed 20 years ago.

I am with you in that no one in DC seems to understand common sense. I wish they only didn't understand common sense. Most of our so-called elites in DC actively work to undermine it at every turn.

I agree 1,000% with Henry @ 11:01.

Rosenstein should be held accountable for the damage he’s done to this country. Rosenstein (and probably 90% of all high-level employees at DoJ) should hang for treason.

An Admiral flacking with a reporter has too much time on his hands. I don’t remember who posted it the other day, but we have 2X as many admirals now as we did during WW2, despite having 1/10 as many ships. I can’t see how any good could possible come of that. And of course it hasn’t.

Ext @ 5:47 Color me totally unsurprised that the anti-Semitic bigoted hate-filled Dems refused to acknowledge the right of Israel to even exist.

I'm surprised about that Mike Trout deal. I figured for sure he'd test the waters, and probably get over $500 million from somebody.

It's not leisure viewing if you get insulted at every turn with the requisite culture memes. Funny how that works to reduce audiences to a more selective group, doesn't it?

Can anyone give me one good reason why everyone involved in this debacle should not be fired and barred from ever serving in any position of responsibility, and prohibited from ever possessing a gun, or a knife, or anything more dangerous than a plastic spoke? https://www.thegunwriter.com/22459/punta-gorda-police-officer-loaded-wadcutters-into-his-revolver-instead-of-blanks/
I started to read rse's link to the Harvard report about "ethical admissions" but then I felt my brain cells preparing to commit suicide, so I stopped.
SInce the NCAA bracket was released last night, it's time to sign up for my annual pool. It's only $5 to enter, and you can sign up and enter your picks here: https://tournament.fantasysports.yahoo.com/t1/group/29085/invitation?key=237bfb370c1807ac&soc_trk=lnk First, second and third place win money, and last place gets their $5 back (I put that rule in after I finished last two years running).
Breaking: Beto O'Rourke raised $6.1 million for his presidential campaign in his first 24 hours as a candidate — beating Bernie Sanders and all other 2020 contenders. JFC, there are a lot of truly stupid people out there with money to burn. Beto is a vapid dingbat whose only asset appears to be the fact that he sort of resembles the guy who bugged Martin Luther King on his brother's orders and had Marilyn Monroe killed. And for that, people sent him six million freaking dollars?
MM’s 7:13 is appalling. Everyone involved should spend the rest of their lives in prison. If allegations are serious enough to remove a child from parents over the weekend, they’re serious enough to interrupt a judge’s weekend plans to read them and sign off on the order.
Like the legal profession not kicking a dirtball like Avenatti out. Like FBI agents tolerating corruption within their ranks.
Already so many sane (and middle class) parents are encouraging their kids to take a gap year after high school to get off the crazy hamster wheel of the college application process and expectations Good for them! The biggest single problem is the push for EVERYONE to go directly to a four-year residential college directly from high school. It's not anti-education or anti-intellectual to say that that is not the ideal path for every single person. Some people need that year after high school to mature before they're ready for college, to figure out what their interests really are so that college isn't a waste of time or to work and save up some money to help pay for college without loans. Some people need two or three or four years for all that. And some people would be better served, based on their interests, the career they want, and their academic talents, with a two-year degree, or a trade school, or maybe even no more formal education at all, but just going into an entry-level job and working their way up, maybe taking individual courses as the need arises during their career.
People will wonder over his manifesto and try to figure out who else to blame for his actions. But the blame falls on him alone. Sane people don't do such things. I doubt very much that the blame falls on him alone. If we were ever able to get to the truth of this (which I imagine no one in the media, or the NZ government, will do), I am willing to bet cash money that this was a well-planned operation, with support from leftist groups. Or maybe even support from elements within the NZ government (or another government or "rogue" agencies thereof)
