Newsweek: Why Social Security and Medicare Should Be Allowed To Go Broke

Let Them Go Bankrupt, Soon

CA High School Elects Gay Male As Prom Queen

I don't blame the students for this assault on structure and tradition.

It is the adults in the high school that should be blamed for this.

The mature adults are charged with transferring culture to the next community and to establish respect for the institutions.

They should have enforced gender requirements for the king and queen competition.

Instead they allowed the children to have their way.

Why Defense Attorney's Are Scum

The woman was killed from the sexual assault.

The creature known as the defense attorney makes the case that the killer did not INTEND to kill the woman, only rape her.......until SHE BIT HIM as she tried to fight him off!!!!!

She made him MAD.......he killed her.

If I as a juror - I would have bit the Defense Attorney.

Gun Owners Stock Up On Ammo, Fearing An Obama Tax On Bullets

Ammo hard to find as gun owners stock up

While I know of no specific plans to tax the hell out of bullets it does seem pretty crafty. Since a gun can't be taken away per the Second Amendment and the recent Supreme Court affirmation of the individual right of gun ownership a wily anti-Second Amendment advocate could attempt to do the next best thing - exert a high tax upon the bullets that go into the guns.

Since pistol whipping someone is only good when done up close and personal, making ammo harder to come by is likely to render the gun far less effective.

Boston Globe Unions vs New York Times Company

I have reported previously on how the confluence of two forces that are usually aligned cause conflict when they become CONSUMERS on one side of the table and LABOR on the other side.

The following examples demonstration my case:

  • Public Transit Union vs Community Activists.   While the Union demands higher wages, these higher wages translate into higher fares, harming the budgets of the poor who ride public transit
  • The same scenario with respect to Police/Firemen who demand more money while the tax payers of the city don't want to pay more taxes due to their own financial constraints but want more city services than what they are getting right now
  • Parents who favor Teacher's Unions but realize that their children are not in ideal academic settings and thus are not going to go against the teacher's unions who oppose changes to the distributuion of public education
These situations prove to be a "checkmate" event in which two ideologically compatible forces are not willing to 'cut the throat' of their partner.  Thus they typically resolve the stalemate by seeking resources from external sources to enable this conflict that can't be resolved in this closed system to be deescallated.

Now we have the New York Times Company with such a connundrum.  As owners of the NY Times they take the lead and thus the 'progressive side' in any conflict between labor and ownership.  Absent any skin in the game they are able to shame the ownership for driving a hard bargain to the detriment of the workers.

Now it seems that the New York Times Company is facing such a situation with the Boston Globe.  If the unions that work for the Globe don't free up $20 million in labor costs the Times threatens to shut down this sister paper that is equally as progressive in its editorial content.  

2 Globe unions reach agreement with NY Times Co.
BOSTON — Two unions representing Boston Globe workers say they've reached agreements on concessions with management as negotiations with the newspaper's largest union continue.

Mary White, president of Teamsters Local 1, which represents 245 mailers, says a tentative agreement was reached at around 4:30 a.m. Monday. It includes $5 million in concessions and changes in lifetime job guarantees. In a report on the Globe's Web site, White says the concessions were "necessary in closing the deal."

A union representing 210 delivery drivers also reached agreement Monday. Official Ralph Giallanella says the union agreed to about $2.5 million in concessions.

The New York Times Co., the Globe's owner, has said it will shut the paper unless it gets $20 million in concessions.

Far Left Protesters Turn Violent In Europe For May Day

Fury over Europe's economic crisis sees May Day protests turn violen

MAY Day protesters clashed with riot police in Germany, Turkey and Greece yesterday, while thousands of people angry at their governments' responses to the global financial crisis took to the streets in France and Spain.
Rising unemployment has added intensity to May Day marches as last year's market crash and banking meltdown roll into the wider economy.

In Berlin and Hamburg, scattered violence erupted in the early hours, leaving more than 50 riot police injured. Some 200 demonstrators chanting anti-capitalism slogans threw bottles and stones at riot police in Berlin, and set fire to five cars. Police also clashed with the leftists ahead of a far-right rally.

NY Yankees' $161 Million Man Is 1-3 This Year

(CC Sabathia wipes his brow and says "Whew - its a good thing that I am not a corporate CEO pulling down $23 million per year despite having a crappy year. The public would attack me then.")

Angels drop $161 million man Sabathia to 1-3

NEW YORK - Matt Palmer’s paycheck is no match for CC Sabathia. Take a look at their win totals, though.

Palmer outpitched Sabathia for his second major league victory, and the Los Angeles Angels broke open a tight game in the late innings to beat the New York Yankees 8-4 on Saturday.

Kendry Morales homered and drove in two runs, Torii Hunter chased Sabathia with a two-run double in a four-run seventh and the Angels ended New York’s four-game winning streak.

Religious People Support Torture!!

I can hear it now from the Godless Left!!
Religious people support torture more than do secularists.

Survey: Support for terror suspect torture differs among the faithful

I wish there was a measure of ABSTRACTNESS in which someone is forced to test his THEORIES against a real world situation.

It is my opinion that the Godless leftists who say they oppose torture only do so because there is no particular personal consequence in holding their ground.

Palestinian Man Given Death Penalty For Selling Land To Jews

Palestinian Man Sentenced to Death for Selling Land to Israelis

This should be labeled as "One protest march we will NOT see from Progressives who are confronted with two mutually exclusive issues:

  • The Death Penalty
  • Their Sympathies for the Palestineans in their Fight against Israel

A Palestinian court has sentenced a man to death by hanging for selling West Bank land to Israeli citizens.

The sentence was handed down Tuesday by a court in the West Bank town of Hebron, but it may be unlikely to be carried out.

Prosecutors say the defendant sold to Israelis land that did not belong to him in the village of Beit Omar near Hebron.

The Palestinian Authority considers the sale of Palestinian land to Israelis to be treason.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas must approve the sentence for it to be carried out. He has withheld approval in many other death penalty cases. Several other Palestinians charged with collaborating with Israel are currently on death row.
