Washington Post makes an unintentional admission: “The Obama administration has turned back pleas for emergency aid from one of the biggest remaining threats to the economy — the state of California.” The state of California is a threat to the national economy? I’ve been saying that for years. The more states copy California, the more horrible the national economy becomes.
Speaking of the land of leftist stupidity, California legislators propose to shutdown state oil industry with crushing tax burden. Apparently, the notion that crushing taxes do not encourage more business has not sunk into the liberals who run the California State Assembly. Apparently, they believe the road to prosperity is paved with generous benefits to state employees and illegal immigrants.
In other news from the party of Clinton, a video has surfaced in which Ohio Democrat Lt. Governor (candidate for senate in 2010) rubs his bare hairy chest to soft music. WARNING: Once you have seen it, you cannot un-see it!
From the “Liberals think you are all retarded” files, Britain invents the “stab-proof” knife. It is designed, supposedly, to prevent its use as a stabbing weapon. (Works fine for slashing, though.) Because it’s not like any criminal would think of anything like filing down the rounded end to make it pointy or anything.
Tell me this doesn’t suck. Because of a clerical error, kids in two California elementary schools have to make 34 days of school. Why? because 34 of their school days were 5 or 10 minutes short of the mandatory 180 minute school day. And because of a retarded state law, they can’t just make up the missed minutes, they have to make up every day that was short. How stupid is that?
