Tuesday Off-Topic (Moderated) Open Thread (012814)

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.


Unfortunately, not surprising“Kiddie Porn Does Not Count as ‘Moral Turpitude’ to S.F. Govt.”

Related: “Sacrificing Virgins to the Entertainment Gods.” Liberal pols and liberal moviemakers get free passes for what would land anyone else in jail.


Daily Caller“Obama admits his climate agenda won’t curb global warming”

That doesn’t matter. It’s about politicial power and control anyway.


I’m sure Common Core will fix this (/sarc) — “40% of Ohioans need remedial math or English in college”


Steve Deace assesses Ted Cruz.


Don’t forget this“The Vile Voice of Wendy Davis’ Supporters Ridiculing a Paraplegic”

Also, there’s this: “Documents Show A Texas Court Ordered Wendy Davis to Stay Away From Drugs and Alcohol.” Some have tried to pass this restraining order off as typical in a high-dollar divorce situation. I don’t think so, and the fact that even an Associated Press reporter would choose to mention it in his coverage when it was clear he was trying to help her pick up the pieces of her campaign would support that contention.


At Fox News (HT Weasel Zippers) — “Administration fears part of health care system so flawed it could bankrupt insurance companies.” Seven weeks or so from now, as the March 31 deadline approaches, will we find out that this was the goal?

Related: “Allen West makes the case that Obama intentionally trying to overload the welfare system”


The Washington Times notes that the NAACP stood behind Rev. William Barber II’s comment about South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, who is black being “a ventriloquist’s dummy,” saying in a statement: “Dr. King emphasized love and justice rather than extremism. Unless we stand for justice we cannot claim allegiance to or pay homage to Dr. King. In a state such as South Carolina, politicians, whether they be black or white, should not be echoing the position of the far right.”

There isn’t a chance in Hades that Dr. King, who was a Republican, would support what Barber said — and if the “Rev.” Barber doesn’t know that, he should resign from the clergy.


The more things change, the more they stay the same“Obama Blames Conservative Media, Limbaugh and Fox News For Failures…Again”


Pethokoukis“Why the much-hyped Oxfam study on global inequality is misleading”


If CNN and HLN continue to devolve into documentaries and away from hard news, and MSNBC continues to be a far-left swamp of self-evident untruth, will that leave Fox News as the only legitimate cable news network? Yes.
