Things I’d Like to Post About Today ….. (113008, Morning)

Filed under: Taxes & Government — Tom @ 8:30 am

….. But I Don’t Have Any Time For:

  • IBDeditorials.com calls out the president-elect and his party for talking down the economy. This is a bit late; after all the POR Economy’s architects — Pelosi, Obama, and Reid — “successfully” and proactively worked to take it down beginning in June.
  • Michelle Malkin’s question is a good one, given all the grief President Bush got (examples here and here) over his supposedly over-opulent Second Inaugural — “Where are all the Anti-Inauguration activists now?”
  • There is a better headline than the ones used by Hot Air and Canada’ National Post about the following –

    The Carleton University Students’ Association has voted to drop a cystic fibrosis charity as the beneficiary of its annual Shinearama fundraiser, supporting a motion that argued the disease is not “inclusive” enough.

    Cystic fibrosis “has been recently revealed to only affect white people, and primarily men” said the motion read Monday night to student councillors, who voted almost unanimously in favour of it.

    The headline would be, “Carleton Students to White Cystic Fibrosis Sufferers: Drop Dead.”

  • Speaking of people unhappy with universities, Norma at Collecting My Thoughts has closed her wallet to her alma mater, the University of Illinois, over its inclusion of domestic terrorist Bill Ayers as a faculty member. More alums should do the same.
  • Here’s an idea adapted from a Thanksgiving dinner discussion — The Obamas should name their new dog Taxes. Barack Obama will then be able to claim that he kept a campaign promise without killing the economy — “While in office, I raised Taxes.”
