Dead Bill Walking 'nStuff. The Democrats will have to come up with a 'clean' funding bill for the Military Spending, or risk being seen as refusing to fund the Military in the Field. In the words of Dafydd Ab Hugh:
If they did that, they certainly could never claim any credit for a victory... but boy, would they own the defeat.
Great video here. Funny stuff
Gonzales: The Soft Bigotry of Very Low Expectations [Jonah Goldberg]
From a reader:Jonah, pretty fast to believe the Washington Post, that objective news organization. As long as Gonzales was not involved in bombing compounds with children and killing them, I think he should stay. (I'm not a fan. I would have far preferred a battle on the competent John Bolton.)03/24 09:25 AM

Child Abuse Disguised as "Hydrotherapy": By one Igor Charkovsky, of Russia. The details are almost too ridiculous, and frightening to believe. E.g.,
"Charkovsky arrived at the pool accompanied by a crew of female assistants or fans, some of whom held their infants only by the wrists as they swung them in every direction. Afterward a boy of five at the most was made to enter the water despite loud and heartrending protests. Charkovsky grabbed him by the ankles, threw him up high and thrust him deep into the water. He just picked him up like an object, without any preparation, without any empathy, gentleness or attentiveness to the boy's terrified screams. This went on for at least 40 minutes. The boy screamed, 'No, no, I don't want it, Mommy! Enough!' and it didn't stop. After 15 minutes his strength seemed to wane and the screams turned to gurgles. When Charkovsky took a short break we saw the boy vomiting up the water he had swallowed during the screams.
"I looked at my wife in shock. One of the women who works with Charkovsky came over to us and said, 'If you want to watch the work - only with loving eyes. I know it might look bad, but this boy is suffering from a serious birth trauma, because his mother was completely opened up, and if he is not released from the trauma he is liable to grow up to become a criminal or a drug dealer."

Given the pork spent today on shrimp, spinach, and peanuts, this seems like the right way to refer to the new House majority.

The definition of "Briton" has changed... or at least the make-up of the typical Briton has. There are a LOT more Muslims in England today than there were 30 odd years ago... and I wonder how many of them smoke pot compared to "Anglo-Sax" or whatever Brits do. Or how many would be labelled as schizophrenic because they hold beliefs the researchers don't.
I mean, you are talking about an increase in Schizophrenia amongst people in three boroughs who smoke pot. What if... and I'm making a PURELY wild-assed throw here... what if the folks in the new demographic are 50% schizophrenic? A 10% increase in the size of the population made up of a new demographic with these factors would mean a 5% increase in Schizophrenia amongst Brits in general.
Of course with these numbers there would have to be a 100% pot smoking demographic, half of which were pot smokers.
But my point... wait... lemmee see...
Oh yeah... my point is that 'Western' doctors may see Muslims as holding beliefs that qualify as schizophrenic due more to a Culture difference than an accurate description.
The idea that strong pot is driving folks nuts worries me, but not as much as the idea that there are people who will read this article, and say to themselves: "Boy... I really learned something today."

It's a shame... Venezuela was such a NICE country. I don't see anything stopping that thug from completely destroying it now.
