POWERLINE: Obama defends the (his?) faith. I started to watch his speech, caught two strawman arguments lies in two minutes and turned the TV off. Obama can't open his mouth without lying.

Much more here (if you can stand it).
I ALMOST WISH he had moved to Manassas. Luckily we escaped to Georgia just in time....
THEY RAN OUT OF PIPE: Expedition to drill to the center of the Earth ends without success.
THE DOG keeps eating the IRS hard drives.

How many dogs are there? It's not just the IRS that keeps having computer 'mishaps'.

ASTRONAUT SCOTT KELLY plays water ping-pong at the International Space Station.
THE FIRE OF CONSERVATIVE VOTER ANGST: Why Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are surging. Case in point: Iowa.
HOW STUPID AND VICIOUS do elites think 'we' are?

I think the Iowa caucus results are the beginning a valuable lesson for our elite 'ruling class'.

Free money appeals ... until it runs out.
TRUE: Youths’ attraction to Sanders shows education failure. I heard one of the morning newscasts this morning that millennials tend to equate 'socialism' with 'social media'; I tend to agree with that assessment given the progressive domination of education.
MUDDLED THINKING: Today's outstanding academic gibberish.

It's not muddled thinking; it's downright incoherent. Maybe there's a parallel universe where this makes sense, but I doubt it.

CONSERVATIVES: Be wary of Trump. My thoughts as well, though I'm still giving Trump serious consideration. My personal choice is still Carly Fiorina, though it's increasingly clear that she hasn't caught on.

The Republican 'establishment candidates' are non-starters in my mind.
LOBBYISTS AND LOBBYS: First, Amazon ($9M) and Uber ($470K), then Boeing ($21.9M), Lockheed Martin ($13.7M), Northrup-Grumman ($12.3M), United Technologies (11.3M), General Dynamics ($10.3M), and Raytheon ($5.8M).

All are significantly higher than previous years, typically by a factor of two. Does anyone seriously think these companies would spend so much if they weren't trying to protect themselves from government? [Nice little company you've got here; too bad if something were to happen to it....]
MEDIA MISSES AGAIN: Palin press mockery failed to recognize that she was quoting from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

The media is well-versed in liberal cant; outside their bubble, not so much. With respect to the liberal press (I repeat myself), a Reagan paraphrase is appropriate: "Mistrust, then verify."
OBAMA ADMINISTRATION pushes 'Youth Misery Index' to all-time high. Any wonder why millenials are abandoning Obama Hillary in droves?
