MORE ACADEMIC IDIOCY: Professors refer to conservative criticism as 'violence'.

Question: How do you do 'violence' to a snowflake?
I'M BACK after nearly 40 hours without power from Georgia's snowstorm. Pine trees are remarkably fragile when it rains, snows, or the wind blows. They are also remarkably efficient at taking down power lines and blocking roads.

"THERE IS A GOD." Leftist Neera Tanden gleeful that Rupert Murdoch's house burnt down.

I wonder if there will be a God when something catastrophic happens to her?
HEH: The New York Times won today's Foolitzer Prize.
RANDOM THOUGHT: After watching the Trump rally in Pensacola tonight, I think I can confidently predict that the liberals and mainstream media (but I repeat myself) will go absolutely berserk tomorrow.
CIA DIRECTOR MIKE POMPEO: Trump's tweeting actually helped us. Our 'ruling class' (both sides) simply cannot accept that they may be wrong.

Read it all - especially the last paragraph.
JEFF JACOBY: The blessings of climate change.

SAD: Today is the 76th anniversary of Pearl Harbor, and this is the only story I could (not so) easily find. But there was plenty of room for the Mueller investigation and assorted Congressional sex allegations.
COMMENT OF THE DAY: "History began on August 4, 1961 when B. Hussein Obama was born in a manger in Kenya...no, Hawaii...and the indigenous people brought gifts of pineapples, surfboards and 'choom'..."

From the comment section of this post.
DON'T CALL US SNOWFLAKES - it damages our mental health.

First you have to have some mental before you can have mental health....
THE VOLOKH CONSPIRACY: Yes, let's really muck up tax reform.

TAKE A KNEE... MY ASS!



From my email.
1984 HAS ARRIVED at Westfield [Massachusetts] State University.
KIRSTJEN NIELSEN confirmed as Homeland Security Secretary. By a 62-37 majority. Did the Democrats blink?
SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS: Rudolph (the red-nosed reindeer) is racist, sexist, and homophobic.

Just another example of progressive insanity.
OBAMA’S SWIPE AT TRUMP over Paris Agreement is an ironic backfire.
Obama is to be thanked for pointing out that the federal government doesn’t need to be involved in the Paris Agreement or any of its accompanying funding and regulating. If Obama’s idea of an “absence of leadership” is not wasting taxpayer money on shams designed to line the pockets of bureaucrats pushing an eco fauxpocalypse, then I’ll take it.
Question: Where is the Logan Act when you really need it?
ISHMAEL JONES revisits the infamous “Trump Dossier.”
WHAT THE CONSTITUTION says about cakes and compelled speech. The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission yesterday. We'll know its answer in June 2018 or thereabouts.
PEDIATRICIAN: Revealing your baby’s sex might traumatize him, because trans.

OPPOSING VIEW: 6,500 reasons to say ‘It’s a girl’ (or ‘It’s a boy’).

The Social Justice Warriorship is getting tiresome.
DON SURBER: Why the left hates 401K. [Hint: it's about power and control.]
There is a fellow I know, let's call him Ron Rurber.

He worked for a company for 30 years. After 20 years there, liberals bought it out.

Within four years the liberals stopped paying into the pension plan -- and has since enjoyed the corporate welfare of the Pension Benefits Guaranty Corporation, a federal government entity that takes over failed pension plans. The PBGC took over the pension plan, allowing the liberals who bought the company to be off the hook.

But his 401-k accumulated enough money. Each month, he now pulls down twice what his pension is without touching that nest egg. His 401-k payments are larger than his Social Security.

Isolated case?
Not at all. My 401K required minimum distribution (RMD) is 40% larger than my Social Security and pension income combined. And the 401K balance is still growing.
