Must have been a slow week in Tejas

With no menacing dogs to shoot during a SWAT raid, they had to resort to pepper spraying a baby squirrel at a school. But it was to protect the children, so it's OK.

I'll feel safer tonight. Great job, Officer Davis. I bet the kids will really respect you now.

Yes, North Carolinans, your state government is out of control

You might remember my post where some Raleigh residents were accused of practicing engineering without a license because they submitted a report that was "too good". Now, via An NC Gun Blog, we find out that one of their number has been accused of practicing law without a license. Thankfully, the NC Bar Association called BS on that one when emails surfaced that showed the man in question specifically stated that he wasn't acting in that capacity.

Andrew Ritter, the director of the North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors, says that "Your normal citizen doesn't understand the complex nature of engineering."

Andrew, that might be so, although I'd not bet on it. But I know one thing that most "normal citizens" understand--our state government is out of control, and you are one of the poster boys for it.

In the candid remarks, Mr. Obama complains of Republican attempts to attach measures to the budget bill which would have effectively killed parts of his hard-won health care reform program.

"I said, 'You want to repeal health care? Go at it. We'll have that debate. You're not going to be able to do that by nickel-and-diming me in the budget. You think we're stupid?'" recalled the president of his closed-door negotiations on the bill to fund the federal government until September.

Here's how I see it: Either A) you're stupid, B) you believe your own propaganda or C)you're deliberately trying to destroy the country.

Or my choice, D--all of the above.

Start worrying

(Via the Drudge Report)

The Big O wants to expand Homeland Security's mandate further into the Intertubz. They've done such a great job with airports, train stations and so on, why not? What could possibly go wrong?

*pop* *fizz-z-z-z-z-z-z-ip*

"Hey honey? What happened to the Internet?"

From the Land of Fruits and Nuts

Apparently the California Federation of Teachers is wiser than all the investigators, eye witnesses and judges who have been involved in the case of one Mumia Abu-Jamal, convicted of the 1982 killing of a Philadelphia police officer.

I mean, after all, they can just tell he's innocent, when all those other people can't.

Great Bleeding Ghu.
