Suggesting the Obvious Solution

Thursday, April 24, 2014 8:00 pm

A new report shows that Americans spend more on taxes than they do on food, clothing, and housing combined.

Deplorable. Obviously we need to raise taxes so we can give people food, clothing, and housing subsidies.

How An Obamacare Panel Decides Whether You Live or Die

Thursday, April 24, 2014 7:00 pm

[High Praise! to Awesome Dice]

To decide your fate, an Obamacare panel will just roll a 1-sider:

A 4-sided die is a pyramid. A 2-sided die is a coin. What’s a 1-sided die? It’s a Möbius strip. No matter how you throw it, the die will always land on its only side.

Safety First

Thursday, April 24, 2014 4:00 pm

A group of scientists has developed a “shield” to keep the effects of an earthquake from affecting populated areas.

Well, it beats California’s approach to earthquake safety: using insanely high taxes to drive people out of the state entirely.

Thursday, April 24, 2014 2:00 pm

“The good news is more young people are earning college degrees than ever before.” —President Obama

@BarackObama

“The bad news is that they’re all in Women’s Studies, and a new report shows conclusively that there are no actual jobs that involve studying women.”

Actually, It’d Be an Improvement

Thursday, April 24, 2014 8:00 am

A Denver school where students were showing mysterious rash-like symptoms discovered habanero peppers scattered in the playground’s wood chips.

Spicy woodchips? Sounds like something off of Michelle’s school lunch menu.

Mystery Solved

Wednesday, April 23, 2014 10:00 pm

Iowa Jim [High Praise!] recently asked, regarding the smug-looking liberal with the dreadlocks in this post:

Dare I ask which sex/gender/whatever the people who know what’s best for us are calling it this week, the creature in the picture is?

Mystery solved, thanks to “Know Your Meme

College Liberal (also known as “Female College Liberal” and “Bad Argument Hippie”) is an advice animal image macro series featuring a photo of a young Caucasian female with dreadlocks wearing a knitted cap. The captions typically portray the character as a naive and hypocritical left-wing political activist, referencing various clichés associated with the “hippie” subculture.

Here’s one example:

All About the Numbers

Wednesday, April 23, 2014 8:00 pm

To boost Obamacare enrollment numbers, HHS is starting to fill out applications for people without their knowledge.

Seems fair. Why should enrollees know what’s going on when the people who run the program don’t?

Clive Bundy Is the New Chuck Norris

Wednesday, April 23, 2014 7:00 pm

[High Praise! to Liberal Logic 101]

Clive Bundy has a grizzly bear carpet in his room. The bear isn’t dead it is just afraid to move.

Clive Bundy sleeps with a pillow under his gun.

When news reports about the Bundy Ranch aired in France, the French surrendered to Clive Bundy just to be on the safe side.

Clive Bundy can cut through a hot knife with butter

Clive Bundy is the reason why Waldo is hiding.

When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night, he checks his closet for Clive Bundy.

When Clive Bundy crosses the steet the cars have to look both ways

It Still Matters

Wednesday, April 23, 2014 4:00 pm

The State Department says it’s unable to determine what happened to $6 billion of its budget.

Well, it’s a pretty safe bet it wasn’t accidentally overspent on ambassadorial security.

It’s a Very Clever Device, and 100% Accurate

Wednesday, April 23, 2014 8:00 am

A political science professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has developed a machine that can determine whether a person is liberal or conservative.

I assume it’s a TV tuned to Fox News.

Thoughts on Free Speech

Tuesday, April 22, 2014 10:00 pm

[High Praise! to XKCD]

XKCD makes a good point about free speech in a recent cartoon – which has a couple uncensored swears, so you’ll have to go over there to look at it.

But I *can* quote you the alt text from that cartoon:

“I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.”
