News you can snooze

05 Mar

In the interesting category is this item from CBS news in Baltimore that a federal judge overturned a Maryland law that required someone to show  a “good and substantial reason” to own a handgun. Good for the judge. Someone does not need prior approval from the government in order to exercise a right; that is what makes it a right in the first place. Score one for the Constitution.

In the I am not really  surprised category, reports that the Chevy Volt has been named European Car of the Year at the Geneva Auto Show. Let’s get this straight. A continent which is committing financial, political and cultural suicide has named as Car of the Year a coal fired car that goes 40 miles before a premium gasoline powered engine kicks in.  Did I mention that tax payer bailed out GM just stopped production of the Volt because of low sales? Europe is toast.

In the where is the ACLU now category, the Obama administration has announced that killing American citizens overseas is ok, as long as the President determines you are a imminent threat and can not be captured. This is interesting. It was not that long ago that the left was apoplectic that President Bush merely wanted to intercept international calls to known terrorist phone numbers that may have been routed through the US. To the left that was an affront to civil liberties, but killing someone, not a problem. I don’t dispute a President’s need to dispatch those who would do us harm, and regrettably, some of those will be American citizens. But the left was very sympathetic to John Walker Lindh. Aside from the left’s hypocrisy and bad judgement, I just don’t trust the Obama administration on this one.

In the good for them category, reports that nine Republican state attorneys general issued a report outlining numerous illegalities of the Obama administration. Virginia’s own Ken Cuccinelli was among the nine. Twenty-one legal violations are discussed ranging from the Obamacare individual mandate to National Labor Relations Board harassment of Boeing. Keep up the good work. Just one piece of advice. This administration has broken a lot more than 29 laws.

    In the I’m not really surprised category, Europe might look to their east for a good deal on Chinese made crap.

    Mr. D’Oh!

    You must respect the superior mind of the Euros. After all, did they not give ‘Barack the Inhaler’ the Nobel Peace Prize in spite of his having killed Osama bin Laden? And others that needed killin’?

    Wait. Do I have my time line a little confused?

    Oh, that’s right! The Nobel Peace Prize arrived at the White House before the paint was dry on the placards that held Obama’s name in the Old Executive Office Building.
