    Anarchists eh? Too dumb to realise that anarchy is just a brief phase and that any resulting regime, of whatever hue, would have them stood up against a wall and shot as its first act. Only a 'democratic' state, which they so despise, would tolerate them like they do.

    WAPO catches Obama at some nose growing "facts" via our friends at Powerline:


    Kessler concluded:
    Calling out the Republicans at the Brent Spence bridge was bad enough, given the bipartisan support for its reconstruction. But pointing to the Sherman Milton Bridge, which already has been repaired without funding from the president’s jobs bill, is ridiculous.

    So once again, Obama was simply lying. Sure, many politicians have been willing to stretch the truth to get re-elected. But for flat-out misrepresentations, I can’t recall one who can equal Obama.

    Entire piece here

    That guy in China that was released. I dont pretend to understand how this sort of thing works..but my impression was that once in our custody..via volunteer action on his part..he was off limits from the host government.
    After reading this it sounds like we hosed the guy by not remaining with him and returning him to the embassy after treatment

    What a great story over at Volokh.

    http://volokh.com/2012/05/03/united-breaks-guitars/

    I think it illustrates that at least with companies we have recourse even if its not direct satisfaction.
    With government..not so much.

    Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA), in an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle

    Here is a transcript of part of the exchange:

    San Francisco Chronicle: You got Silicon Valley in your district, or a slice of it.

    Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA): Do I?

    Chronicle: Solyndra’s down by your way, as a matter of fact.

    Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA): Yes.

    Chronicle: What specifically are you going to do in the next term to work with the tech sector?

    Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA): I wish I had big enough expense allowance to get one of those new “S’s” that Solyndra’s going to make down there, the electric car. My 10 year old is after me. He no longer wants a Porsche. He wants dad to have an “S” sedan. They sound wild. I guess they run $60,000-$90,000.”
    We pay these people.

    Oh.. he's talking about that other gubberment payoff loan recipient in his district whose never turned a profit Tesla.

    Nah. Obama isnt a Socialist. That this sounds familiar is simply an accident. When Obama says similar..well..its just his brand of capitalism.

    Not really news..but I thought this had to be one of the funniest pics
    I have seen in a long time. It was over at a truck site I go to. I just
    wonder what the cop thought when he first eyeballed this rig..

    It would definitely have me rolling my eyes and shaking my head as in WTH ?

    Bah, that was just the little known early 90's experiment to merge GM and Ford. Their only concept vehicle was an 8-passenger pick-up truck sans extended cab. . .
