Quote of the Week

Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, 
by promising to protect each from the other.

We have a winner in the 2014 Ann Coulter Look Alike Contest.  

Randall Flagg, please step forward and claim your . . . uh . . . never mind.  We'll FedEx it. 


Cops are people, too

As explained in this CNN article by Eliott C. McLaughlin, when cops in Stockton CA confront bank robbers with 3 women hostages, they take them out -- "them" meaning everybody.  Results?  One innocent lady dead, probably killed by the cops.  One lady wounded, probably by the cops.  Two perps dead, one wounded, definitely by the cops.

Why did the cops open up when the perps were holding hostages?  Cops:  "There was a fear for safety, not only for our officers, but also for the community." 

No cops were injured but more than 20 officers were on paid leave as of Thursday per department policy following a shooting.  Poor babies, I hope they'll be alright.

One witness: "I could see the car getting blasted. I could see all the little sparks and everything off the car." That would be the car with the hostages.

Graphic proof the Independent takes you for a sucker

Here is the way the Independent punked the public to make up a story about the effect of the MH17 airline disaster on the price of gold.  By showing just the very top of the gold price curve, they made it look like an enormous effect.  In fact it was bugger-all.

The Independent's version


Looking at the 5-yr curve, there was hardly a ripple.

The truth of it
