Speaking on human rights, President Obama said that, in America, there are still “areas where there are problems”.

The biggest area being by the East River in that building with all the flags in front of it.

Got a galley copy of my new book. See? I didn’t make it up.

I thought the new game from the maker of Flappy Birds was too hard to be addictive, but I was wrong.

The recent change to it to give some clear skies before the first obstacle helps you get in the rhythm of things.

Stings are in the hands of the bee holder.

There’s little more American than doing all you can to avoid paying taxes.

Dollars in the free market can flourish and reproduce, while dollars in the hands of the government get butchered.

If were losing businesses to Canada over taxes, then the problem is with us and not the businesses.

The country that remained loyal to our British oppressors somehow has better taxes. That’s not right.

I won’t believe you’re a feminist if you can’t demonstrate proper firearm usage.

Will feminism ever advance to the point I can tell my wife to kill the spider herself, or is that just being unrealistic?

Wasn’t one of the temptations in the desert Satan trying to get Jesus to recline His airplane seat?

“You deserve it. You did pay for the seat.”
“Get behind me, Satan!”

I don’t care about corporate taxes. I feel I’m getting a big enough benefit from Apple if they weren’t paying a dime of taxes.

Your benefit should come companies making great products at affordable prices. The taxes they pay are inconsequential in comparison.

The military is the one part of the government that functions well because it’s the only part actually meant to destroy things.

It’s become confusing what is and isn’t feminism. Easy rule: If you can imagine yourself taking it seriously, it’s probably not feminism.

If women aren’t getting equal pay for equal work, have they tried nagging?

Do you want equality, or do you want to run to the government every time you think you have a problem?

Have they found one actual instance of a woman getting 30% less for the same work, or is there just the bogus stat to repeat endlessly?

Why are only men expected to competently negotiate a salary? We have no idea what we’re doing either.

If you could actually pay women 30% less for the same work, men would never be able to find employment.

IBM has developed a new computer chip that mimics the way the human brain works.

Just think – we’re now on the threshold of having a robot capable of not being able to find the car keys while holding them in its hand.

Scientists have developed a low-cost robot prototype that can put itself together and perform a task without human intervention.

Impressive. That makes it more advanced than the average Obama voter.

New tagline for MSNBC to more neatly encapsulate their smug, condescending sense of leftwardness:

A new report shows that Congressional Democrats have talked about the impeachment of President Obama 20 times more than Republicans have on the House floor.

Huh. Br’er Rabbit must really miss his briar patch.

A climate scientist said that a 15 year global warming hiatus was just a “climate variability that is temporarily masking a longer-term temperature trend.”

So… “bad weather”?

A new report shows that record numbers of Americans are renouncing their US citizenship.

Why not? They can always just wander across the border later and get it back for free.

First, you couldn’t trust houseplants & potato chip bags.

But that’s not what’s going to do you in.

No, you’re doomed because of your super-fancy smart phone.

Not from the microphone or the GPS (although that’s not doing you any favors, privacy-wise), it’s the phone’s gyroscope, which automatically rotates the screen when you rotate the phone – it lets anybody eavesdrop on you [emphasis mine]:

The MEMS gyroscopes found on modern smart phones are sufficiently sensitive to measure acoustic signals in the vicinity of the phone. The resulting signals contain only very low-frequency information (< 200 Hz). Nevertheless we show, using signal processing and machine learning, that this information is sufficient to identify speaker information and even parse speech.

***Since iOS and Android require no special permissions to access the gyro, our results show that apps and active web content that cannot access the microphone can nevertheless eavesdrop on speech in the vicinity of the phone.***

This sort of thing is why I have a superunfancy blitheringidiotphone.

Oh, and at the link, you can also scroll down to find out what else that stalkerment officials don’t need permission to access.

If you need me, I’ll be over here under my tinfoil tent…
