Go ahead, make my day

You've no doubt heard the story of the poor kid who got in trouble for drawing the doodle that ended up being a gun. Here is the actual sketch in case you've not seen it:

Pretty dangerous. Other students might have seen this and recoiled violently getting paper cuts, running the risk of bleeding, scaring other students and generally wrecking havoc. Hey, it could happen.

Others, such as Neal Boortz, have discussed the mechanisms of using a zero tolerance policy to generate the lemming like follower mentality.

Wake up folks. These are our 21st century American government schools. They aren't worth a crap (pardon the expression). They exist for one purpose, to provide jobs for government union school teachers and government administrative hacks. Deep in your hearts each and every one of you know that the private sector could be doing a better job, and you're also deeply embarrassed, even if you won't admit it, that you have turned your children over to this hideous system to be, or so you think, "educated."

There is no one entity that is more responsible for the decline of our great country than our system of government education.

I don't have the sophistication to drum up this type of insight.

Instead I'll just say that if some kid drew a gun on ME in class, I'd probably be perty asceered.

Isn't "Pahrump" the sound of a backboard slamming against a wall?

Click title for hat tippage.

So Hillary is feeling good about "where I am" after Karl Rove, in a parting shot called her a "flawed candidate".

Perhaps God is looking out for me, or maybe it's the stars aligning just right, this cracked me up. Somehow Hillary, in a fascinating display of putting her mouth in gear prior to engaging her brain uttered the James Brownian, "I feel good" about her visit to Pahrump, Nevada.

Apparently Pahrump, Nevada is the whorehouse capital of not only Nevada but the United States.

Mrs. Clinton:" Well, aren't we glad to see him go, I think is the answer to that. You know, I am thrilled to be running this campaign, and to be getting the response that I'm getting all over the country. I was in Pahrump, Nevada, just today, earlier. 2,500 people. I feel very good about where I am." -- OpinionJournal - Best of the Web Today

The fact that Hillary is showing us now what it'd be like to have her as a leader will only hurt her more. The unbelievable stupidity she shows on a regular basis belies her lack of charm and just flat out evil thirst for power.

Oh on the upside, she's a never ending source of humor. Provided you can filter out the whole socialist leanings thing. For starters.

Analysis of liberal logic

As it unravels

  1. 0 hour - Horrible accident occurs (the I-35W bridge collapse in Minnesota)
  2. 1 minute past 0 hour - Liberals take a deep breath
  3. 1 minute and 1 millisecond past 0 hour - Liberals begin to search desperately for reasons to blame the Bush administration for the aforementioned bridge collapse

Since the answer to everything in a liberals mind is to throw money at the Federal Government so that under proper demoratic leadership we can "fix" the problem, it doesn't take very long until we determine that the course of action (for your typical liberal) is to blame Bush for taking money from Bridge Repair and giving it to Halliburton and friends in the war for oil (this last typically spoken with a nasal whine).

Spirited debates over just how many bridges the Federal Government has repaired (still zero) are going on all over the nation. Liberals spout on about how many trillions of dollars Bushitler is spending on war and lament how if there was only more money available to repair the bridges then we'd be able to fix this, this horrible HORRIBLE (it's all Bush's faulttm) (worst President in historytm) mess...

But then we find out that the REASON for the bridge failure might be the additional weight of the construction equipment while the bridge was under repair.

Wha??? That's right kiddies. The bridge was under repair when it failed.

A View Of The Liberal Pshyche

For half a dozen years, the motto of state government and particularly that of Gov. Tim Pawlenty has been No New Taxes. It's been popular with a lot of voters and it has mostly prevailed. So much so that Pawlenty vetoed a 5-cent gas tax increase - the first in 20 years - last spring and millions were lost that might have gone to road repair. And yes, it would have fallen even if the gas tax had gone through, because we are years behind a dangerous curve when it comes to the replacement of infrastructure that everyone but wingnuts in coonskin caps agree is one of the basic duties of government.

I'm not just pointing fingers at Pawlenty. The outrage here is not partisan. It is general. - Nick Coleman, Star Tribune

A typical liberal thought. "More taxes need to be levied on the people! A new tax will solve any problem!" Well, what Coleman fails to mention is the fact that the state of Minnesota had a $2.1 BILLION SURPLUS for the 2006 fiscal year.

Coleman also misquotes the story of the bridge scoring a 50/120, claiming it was a "50% bridge". The number is misconstrued, as I just heard on the radio where a score of just over 70/120 is considered "very good."

"What that rating of 50 means is that the bridge should be repaired, should perhaps be considered for replacement at some point in the future," Peters said. "It was by no means determined that this bridge was not safe. Had that been the case ... Gov. Pawlenty would have shut this bridge down immediately."
