Is this a head desk or a face palm

Or maybe both?

Left-leaning “news explanation” site Vox has trouble differentiating between the National Rifle Association, the largest firearms safety training organization in the world, and the National Recovery Act, a ruthless system of wage and price controls created to help introduce socialism into the U.S.

EPA Announces New Regulations Designed to Halt Invasive Washington Press Corps

The Environmental Protection Agency has rolled out extensive new regulations to stop the spread of the free press in order to stop it before it becomes a danger to the Washington, D.C. ecosphere.

“We need to look at the lifecycle of the press corps in terms of how it interacts with the other parts of the ecology here in our nation’s capitol,” said EPA Assistant Deputy Undersecretary for Political Pest Control Dee Deetee. “Clearly, right now, having a press corps that asks questions and threatens the status quo is unhealthy and unsustainable to the power structure in Washington, so every effort must be made to disrupt their hunting grounds and keep them from spreading to close to important power centers within Washington.”

Ms DeeTee stressed that these tough new controls on the press are only limited to certain areas of Washington, and that the press would be free to roam around unfettered asking questions about Marco Rubio’s boat payments and Scott Walker’s sweaters.

“It’s about balance,” she said. “Where Scott Walker buys his clothes is of equal importance to the long-term sustainability of both the EPA and Washington as a whole than such trivial matters as who killed who in Benghazi. We need to look at the bigger picture here, and what we, as the EPA, can do to prevent the spread of questions to places where they’re unwanted and un-called for.”

Reports that the IRS is underwriting the cost of this new effort remain unconfirmed at this time.

A special dedication for a certain former Secretary of State

All men have secrets and here is mine so let it be known
we have been through hell and high tide
I can surely rely on you
and yet you start to recoil
heavy words are so lightly thrown
but I’d still leap in front of a flying bullet for you

So what difference does it make?
so what difference does it make?
it makes none, but now you have gone
and you must be looking very old tonight

The devil will find work for idle hands to do
I stole and I lied, and why? because you asked me to
but now you make me feel so ashamed
because I’ve only got two hands
well, I’m still fond of you

So what difference does it make?
so what difference does it make?
it makes none, but now you have gone
and your prejudice won’t keep you warm tonight

Oh the devil will find work for idle hands to do
I stole and then I lied just because you asked me to
but now you know the truth about me
you won’t see me anymore
well, I’m still fond of you

But no more apologies
no more apologies
I’m too tired, I’m so very tired
and I’m feeling very sick and ill today
but I’m still fond of you

He knows if you are sleeping, or drinking a Big Gulp

He knows if your gun’s ok, so be good for 5 bills’ sake.

Baltimore to offer $500 if you squeal on your neighbor’s illegal guns.

In an effort to reduce violent crime, Baltimore officials and Metro Crime Stoppers are giving $500 rewards for tips that lead to illegal gun forfeitures.

If a tip leads to a felony gun arrest, the tipster could receive another $500 officials said Tuesday under one of the five billboards around the city they plan to use to advertise the yearlong program.

No word yet if this is the billboard they’re planning on using for this program.

The Long Slouch Through Our Nation’s Institutions Continues

Mrs ExKev is watching a special on Fox about how radicals like Ward Churchill and Bill Ayers influence the thinking and policies of our nation’s universities. 

Me? I’m not watching it. More liberal readers of this blog may be surprised to hear this (as they all pretty much believe we on the right watch Fox like Winston Smith watches his telescreens), but I don’t like watching Fox News, or CNN or any TV news. Why would I sit and have someone read the internet to me? 

I digress. 

What struck me about this special was how ineffective this tactic of indoctrinating the youth has been for the left. Yes, a generation of young people has sat in college classes and absorbed a lot of socialist nonsense through osmosis, but the end result of all of that has been: 

a) The Obama Presidency
b) The coming candidacy of Mrs. Bill Clinton
c) The possible candidacy of Elizabeth Warren

Not exactly the Inklings, there.

The biggest issue that I see with the left’s takeover of our schools isn’t in leadership (probably because today’s colleges stand as much chance of producing leaders as the Dallas Cowboys have of producing touchdowns…), but rather how a liberal arts degree from a good school is a ticket into the ever-expanding world of government bureaucracy. 

The problem isn’t with what our college students are learning, the problem is what they’re doing with their degrees, and how they’re producing (or more likely, NOT producing) something to enrich our country and our culture.

Turkey Time

I have a relatives who do not hold the same religious beliefs I do, and we have a great time at Thanksgiving and other semi-religious events because I’ve learned to keep my mouth shut, enjoy their company, let family be family, and be a witness to what I believe in, not a spokesman. 

What’s the difference between the two? A witness testifies when called upon, and does so from first-hand knowledge. A spokesman talks whenever possible, and may or may not know what they are talking about. One is trusted, the other… not so much.

Moms Demand Action has not learned that lesson, but then again, zealots are always the last to understand.

Because nothing says “Thanksgiving!” like being a Puritanical prude.
