I'm tempted to say that this is the dumbest thing you'll read all day...

...but the day is young, and leftist morons are everywhere. Still, it's bound to stand out. Jason Curmi in The Huffington Post:
The main problem with the notion of self-defense is it imposes on justice, for everyone has the right for a fair trial. Therefore, using a firearm to defend oneself is not legal because if the attacker is killed, he or she is devoid of his or her rights.
One of the commenters at the linked site has a good response: "It’s funny, I have always thought that the lack of a trial had MANY benefits, and that’s why self defense shootings were so…beneficial."

Thank you, drunken has-been, for confirming for the umpteenth time how well off we are to be rid of you

If there's ever a Mt. Rushmore of FAIL, John Boehner's mug needs to be front and center. His latest comment on Ted Cruz:
"Lucifer in the flesh," the former speaker said when asked his opinions on the Texas senator. "I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life."

Chris Wolf of Indiana was alert and prepared.

Good for Mr. Wolf. As for me, I have no intention of suffering the tragic fate of the Harvey family of Richmond, so I, too, am alert and prepared - as we all should be.

I like the move...

...but I worry that it may have come too late: Ted Cruz names Carly Fiorina as his VP running mate.

Meanwhile, check out one of the people reportedly on the short list of Hillary's potential VP candidates.

The Washington way

This article in the Washington Post about the Washington Metro subway system offers as good an example as any of how government’s capacity for High Suckitude is almost always limitless.

It’s also another reason why I think the federal government should be physically decentralized (so as to reduce the burgeoning inside-the beltway population of federales and the strain they put on the region’s infrastructure – not to mention the dangers to our liberty represented by such a large concentration of bureaucrats in this echo chamber of statism). With modern communications technology, there’s no reason the Dept. of Agriculture can’t be located in Omaha, and the EPA in Kansas City (or, even better, as a tool for triggering permanent attrition, Trenton, New Jersey and Flint, Michigan, respectively).

Is there anything Israel can't do?

Palestine's President claims that the Israeli "occupation" is "destroying the climate in Palestine".
