Bring enough gun

Words fail me---see the video.

Boy genius is incredibly lucky that he lived to be arrested.

Unsurprising

(Via Say Uncle)

But it's disappointing nonetheless.

The SWAT team that gunned down a former Marine in his Tucson, Ariz., home was cleared today of any wrongdoing in the incident.

"shocked face", etc.

And in the country formerly known as Great Britain

They'll be paying the windmills for not producing electricity so they can save the planet.

Somewhere, a rainbow farting unicorn just burst into flames.

Just a little more patience is needed

It's official: The housing crisis that began in 2006 and has recently entered a double dip is now worse than the Great Depression.

Prices have fallen some 33 percent since the market began its collapse, greater than the 31 percent fall that began in the late 1920s and culminated in the early 1930s, according to Case-Shiller data
.

If we get any more patient we're all going to be broke. The average American homeowner has the majority of their net worth tied up in their home, and on average, they've lost a third of it.

Now contrary to all the sycophants of John Maynard Keynes *spit*, I don't want the government to do anything about this. On the contrary--I want them to stop doing anything about it. Stop printing money, stop bailing out banks, just stop! Let the markets do their job and squeeze out all the malinvestment.

Dearest President Zero--it really is about the economy, stupid! But since you're the least knowledgeable community organizer in the room, you probably don't get that. So how about you step out and get a hot dog after a nice round of golf and let the adults handle it for a bit?

So how's your economy doing?

On the day the Big O comes to my state hoping to find some support, we find this in one of the local papers.

Yeah, folks, that was a total of zero building permits issued in that county in the previous month.

For further grins and giggles, let's have a look at the number issued in the county seat. Oh dear, another goose egg.

Maybe I need to start calling the Big O the Big Zero.

"...an embarrassment for legacy media."

Now's here's a bit of a shocker--The Great Palin Email Treasure Trove paints her as "...an idealistic, conscientious, humorous and humane woman slightly bemused by the world of politics."

So I wonder how the sufferers of Palin Derangement Syndrome are going to handle that?
