Quickies


A round-up of articles, columns, news items and blog posts that caught our eye this past week.




Say it ain't so. A pub crawl ban in the NYC?









With more waning domestic political support on the horizon, expect more mid-90s-white-supremacists-in-the-flyover-provinces-scare-journalism from the legacy media. Here.





Walter Russell Mead on the train wreck that is Al Gore:

Once out of office, he assumed the leadership of the global green movement, steering that movement into a tsunami of defeat that, when the debris is finally cleared away, will loom as one of the greatest failures of civil society in all time.

Gore has the Midas touch in reverse; objects of great value (Nobel prizes, Oscars) turn dull and leaden at his touch. Few celebrity cause leaders have had more or better publicity than Gore has had for his climate advocacy. Hailed by the world press, lionized by the entertainment community and the Global Assemblage of the Great and the Good as incarnated in the Nobel Peace Prize committee, he has nevertheless seen the movement he led flounder from one inglorious defeat to the next. The most recent, failed global climate meeting passed almost unnoticed last week in Bonn; the world has turned its eyes away from the expiring anguish of the Copenhagen agenda.

Wait, there was a climate confab in Bonn and we missed it? Whatever flaming wreck the faith-based AGW movement is currently on the world stage, we are living with the real-world consequences of it here in California with AB 32, CARB and its agenda-driven, jobs-killing sham of an existence.



And here's Prince on religious freedom and tolerance:

Prince, the Grammy Award-winning artist behind “Purple Rain,” told the Guardian in an interview that women forced to wear burqas in Islamic countries are happy to wear them.

“It’s fun being in Islamic countries, to know there’s only one religion,” Prince told the British newspaper. “There’s order. You wear a burqa. There’s no choice. People are happy with that.”

Religious fundamentalism is dandy for other folks, we suppose.








Don't forget gang, the SLOBs (San Diego Local Order of Bloggers) has a continually-updating aggregator site giving copious amounts of love to the radical and extremists notions of free markets, limited government and personal responsibility. We've got it rolled in the right-hand margin but why wait when you can click and check, right here and right now.




Hey, Southern Californians (minus those in Los Angeles County), who's up for seceding from the rest of the state?

Southern Californian culture (is) the land of materialistic con-artistry with a paper thin veneer of pop enlightenment overlaid upon some few who would pretend to be other than parasites looking for a host.

Probably does not have an ice cube's chance in succeeding but we can dream, can't we? Besides, it's always nice to rattle some chains every once in a while. Left Coast Rebel has the details, here.



OK, so the President shouldn't be referred to as a "dick", especially on national television, but Leslie over at Temple of Mut believes that he does rate equivalence to another part of the body that, well, uhh... as Leslie puts it:

a vestigial organ that serves no significant function, yet under certain circumstances can cause life-threatening health problems that need prompt treatment.



OK. That's it for now unless we check in later in the day. Please enjoy the rest of this glorious July 4th weekend.

How about hooking up with the areas of North Cali that want out of being sucked dry (very literally) by SoCal cities? (it's not nearly as dead as LCR seems to think... when my family was living in Modoc, it was a popular topic of conversation; I doubt that has changed, especially since I know it's still popular among the relatives that live in said saner areas of Oregon!) It would need a different name than "Southern California," but since that name implies exactly what they're trying to get away from....

Hook up with the Jefferson State project (which would bring the saner bits of Oregon to the table) and this could be INTERESTING!

Regarding beer here is something they had to study?

The state's Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services, which says that alcohol is the most popular substance used by New York college students

No transfat, salt, or beer in NYC? No hookers or trannies either? Geez.

Don't see how they can outlaw pub crawls under the first amendment. People getting together seems like freedom of assembly to me.
