Monday Off-Topic (Moderated) Open Thread (102813)

Filed under: Lucid Links — Tom @ 6:05 am

This open thread will stay at or near the top today. Rules are here. Possible comment fodder may follow. Other topics are also fair game.


Claudia Rossett at PJ Media“So, What Are We Doing About Syria’s Other WMD Program?” The answer is apparently nothing: “While world attention has been focused these past two months on the Russia-brokered deal to dismantle Assad’s chemical weapons (and even that is highly problematic), there have been no visible provisions to deal with Assad’s biological weapons projects,” even though “President Bashar al Assad’s biological weapons program is in fact a far greater danger that has not been tackled.”


Meanwhile, “Iran Announces 34 New Nuke Sites,” and “could produce enough weapons-grade uranium to build a nuclear bomb in as little as a month.”

Because of lack of security, “ObamaCare website might have to be rebuilt.”


Maybe it’s because I haven’t enough coffee yet, but I don’t find this 404 message at Slate funny at all. In fact, it’s arrogant and condescending. And I think it might be a “clever” cover for deleting articles it didn’t like, which keeping the ones they do like around.


Around the world, “Central Banks Drop Tightening Talk as Easy Money Goes On.” This can’t end well.


Answer: “Obviously, yes” — “Did White House Obamacare guidance stop ahead of 2012 election?” And environmental regs. And layoff notices.


Adam Goldenberg (HT Walter Hudson at PJ Tatler): “Canada Has Death Panels.” He thinks it’s “a good thing.”

Last sentence: “When humanity demands haste, and justice demands expert knowledge, Ontario’s death panels offer a solution—whatever Sarah Palin says.”

That’s an admission that “whatever Sarah Palin said” about “death panels” was right.



  1. And Palin never said that “death panels” weren’t a solution. It’s more along the lines of it being a horrible and inhumane solution… which Goldberg is all for, it seems.
