Liberals were quite cranky about a rodeo clown in Missouri.
A Texas rodeo planned to have an Obama rodeo clown, because they don’t care what the left thinks.
Well, that day has come and gone, and I’m not able to discover a single news story about it.
I suspect the lesson here is that when you refuse to apologize after doing nothing wrong, your insane accusers crawl back into the degenerate rat holes from whence they came.
During a speech in Montana, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said the courts shouldn’t “invent new minorities that get special protections”.
Or, with Obamacare, majorities that get no protection.
How can anyone think we have too many liberties?
Oh, I know. They think that because they believe in the myth of the “superior man” who will take care of them. The man on the white horse who knows better than everyone, and who can run everything so that no one is ever afraid or poor or sick or marginalized.
In other words, they dream of the ideal childhood.
The rest of us know that never in the history of the world, not even the calmest, has there been a time when a leader could guarantee safety, health and contentment to everyone. There will always be poor, unloved, suffering people. You can’t help that.
You behave in a way you help those around you and you try not to be a burden, but even then at times that will fail.
Those of us who are religious believe a time will come when we will live like that, in perfect harmony and contentment with a superior being watching over us.
But last time I looked, neither king, premier, president, emperor or satrap had the power to look into the hearts and minds and judge everyone perfectly. And no, the NSA spying ain’t it. And none of the above were the creators of the universe.
They are all, in fact, fallible men, usually fallible men attracted to power over others, who want to run you not for your own good but for their own internal satisfaction. And since people who crave this sort of power tend to be more broken than writers, their internal satisfaction might be something that even they don’t understand.
There is no man on a white horse. There is, always, an old trickster, coming to town and promising eternal peace. If you look carefully, you can see the horse is a mule that has been painted white. And the man is just using the same old promises the human brain is wired to crave, but what he wants is quite different. And even if he truly believes what he says, he can’t deliver. He’s just a man. He can’t know what each individual wants and needs. Only each of you can know what he wants and needs. And sometimes not even that.

In Illinois, a baby girl was born in a parking lot – 33 years after her father was born in a parking lot.
Of course, under Obamacare, that’ll only happen if you have the Cadillac Plan.

So does Slate think rich women shouldn't abort babies that could go to public schools?

That toddler on a leash at the mall might be an unstoppable killing machine. You really don't know.

Getting naked is part of @LenaDunham's contribution to society. Her other, far more important contribution is getting dressed.

Weird how society just accepted people using the word "Baby" as a romantic way to address someone you're having sex with.

I once knew a guy who *wanted* to be called T-Bone. So we called him Koko instead.

In Minnesota, pro-Obamacare ads are being run that feature Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox.
Seems appropriate. Obamacare is creating about the same size mess as Babe.
That’s the promise of America – the idea that we are responsible for ourselves, but that we also rise or fall as one nation; the fundamental belief that I am my brother’s keeper; I am my sister’s keeper.
BARACK OBAMA, DNC speech, Aug. 28, 2008
“Just to clarify, brothers and sisters – *I’m* the keeper, and there’s no escape.”
