The Daily Mail published pictures of confused and startled Amazon tribesmen jabbing their spears skyward upon seeing an airplane for the first time.

Sorta like watching Democrats react to Paul Ryan’s budget.

North Dakota’s oil industry is growing so fast that the infrastructure of local towns is having a hard time keeping pace.

They need to slow things down. Quick! Elect some Democrats!

GermanJudeYou ever notice how the left just loves Europe? They want to be just like Europe.

I’ve been listening to crap for years where otherwise seemingly nice and smart people talk with such glowing terms about who wonderful Europe is and how we could learn from them and how … Well, a phrase to describe what overcomes would be “Euro-gasm.”

Yeah, that may sound all … ewwwww … but it really fits. And I bet you know people like that, too.

Well, maybe this’ll put a stop to that.

Turns out that in the Netherlands that is hiring — are you paying attention here, left-wingers? — Whites only:

Wesley de Laat, owner of Budget Cleaning Brabant, has been lambasted for his “whites only” stance and his later defense. “White workers are better than non-white workers,” he told the media this week. “I don’t discriminate,” he went on. “I just don’t invite them for interview. Poles, Moroccans, any non-whites are not going to be hired to work for this company. Ahmed and Ali are probably very good people, but I don’t want them working for me.”

Now, this isn’t the first recent incident of this kind of discrimination. Just one of the most recent.

And, if I understand my history any, I think that others in Europe have had issues with different races from time to time. To time. To time. All the time.

Well, perhaps this will open the left’s eyes that the way things happen in Europe isn’t the way to emulate. This country, when we act like Americans, can do pretty good coming up with things on our own.

But, it probably won’t. The left can’t learn anything. That would involve paying attention and learning from history and experience. The left simply has an ideology and then is shocked and stunned when reality intervenes. And the results are often catastrophic.

There is a cycle to things. But, it’s not inevitable. At least, not if you do something about it. But if you repeat the same mistakes, you’ll get the same results. Racial discrimination is nothing new. It’s just the result of what the left is doing, and those of no moral fiber have done, for years.

Here’s the other thing. The left has been having a Euro-gasm for years. And they’re looking to keep that feeling going. Only, I have the bad feeling that someone’s gonna end up getting screwed.

You made it under the deadline, right? Got your tax return off? Included payment, if required?

I did. Included the check for $1,230. And included a little message with my stamp.

IRSPayment2014

I wanter if that stamp will earn my an audit. Probably.

Oh, and I meant to post this yesterday, but didn’t. Still fresh in my mind, so I’ll post it today.

Not really sure why we need Vox’s explanatory journalism when we already have Media Matters and Jay Carney.

I had a Bachelors in Science, but then I got married.

I don’t really get the Bundy thing. Can’t he just hold his meetings of NO MA’AM somewhere else?

When the college tuition bubble bursts, we’ll have people holding up signs saying, “Will talk nonsense about race and gender for food.”

I consider the taxes taken from me as paying for my right to complain, and I will get my money’s worth.

The reason I like a mugger over a tax collector is that a mugger never acts like you’re supposed to thank him.

Steps to being a liberal:
1. Declare yourself the rational, reality-based one
2. Make only emotion-based arguments

There’s nothing sadder/cuter than an asylum for criminally insane babies.

Is there any good metric for measuring the military’a efficiency? Like dollars spent versus dollars of damage done?

So Mike Bloomberg knows as much about Christianity as he does about guns.

Sources report that the networks refused to give President Obama a primetime hour to brag about reaching his goal for Obamacare enrollment.

So… we have to settle for only hearing about it 23 hours a day?

Phil Schiliro, the White House adviser for health policy, said that Obamacare “is a very popular thing for people”.

Yes, not getting socked with a fine for doing nothing is practically the new iPhone.

[High Praise! to 4of7 of Little Worlds)

The "Idea" of Little Worlds

As 4of7 explains:

"one day I decided to try to make a circle out of cubes, and it became an on-going process of development and experimentation - different shapes, different colors, different attempts to finesse the secondary elements - Making something made of all straight lines look curved!"

The city of Philadelphia is using “Mosquito” devices that emit a high-pitched whine to keep teens from loitering.

Waste of money. Could just use a tape of Harry Reid on the Senate floor.
