From Around the Blogroll

William Teach noted that new wind power projects dropped by 93% last year, once tax credits for them expired. It seems as though wind power is a lousy investment without government assistance. I wonder if the leftists who complain about corporate welfare will say that ending this particular bit of corporate welfare is a good thing. :lol:

After seeing some real h8 speech by the left, Sister Toldjah asks what conservatives have to do to win the culture wars. When the left routinely lies about conservatives, and there are millions of people stupid enough to believe those lies, not even caring if they are lies or not, it might be that just telling the truth isn’t enough.

Robert Stacey Stacy McCain says that You Can’t Spell ‘Liberal’ Without L-I-E:

Patterico catches Matthew Yglesias in a big fat stinking lie and the liar Yglesias reacts by lying about his lie. Yglesias actually blocked Patterico on Twitter, and Ezra Klein defended Yglesias’s lie.

Meanwhile, “Harry Reid Lied About Americans Being Liars, and Now That He’s Busted, He’s Lying Again“ – this is not unusual. Harry Reid is one of the most dishonest men ever to serve in the Senate, perhaps rivaling even the notoriously mendacious Ted Kennedy.

Dejah Thoris, from the movie John Carter. In his Barsoom series, Edgar Rice Burroughs depicted the Barsoomians (Martians) as being completely naked, other than for pieces of armor, but the movie makers didn’t film it that way. :(

Dejah Thoris of the Victory Girls was pleased that a Feminist Professor Who Attacked Pro-Life Student Charged With Criminal Battery. It won’t matter much, because the charges are misdemeanors, and department of feminist studies professor Mireille Miller-Young, whose research emphasis is black studies, pornography, and sex work — why would any university actually pay anyone to research that bovine feces? — will get nothing more than a fine and a stern talking-to. And I, of course, always look forward to posts from Dejah, just so Ican use the picture at he right. :)

Karen, the Lonely Conservative noted that Another Climate Alarmist Wants To Imprison ‘Deniers’. You know that the “science is settled” when they want to silence any opposition.

L D Jackson thought that vote fraud was non-existent, but, amazingly enough, more instances of fraudulent voting keep cropping up. I have to wonder: just how many anecdotes and isolated instances does it take to constitute a real problem?

Hube was amused by a Democratic candidate’s statement that Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) wasn’t qualified to hold the office he has since 1981, because he never went to law school.

Patterico spotted Anthony Weiner’s first column for Business Insider, and it seems that the guy who couldn’t stop “sexting” even after it cost him a congressional seat has shown just as much intellectual rigor when it comes to writing on economics and business.

Donald Douglas actually got off the internet for a while to refresh the Mrs, play with his son, and read a book.

And for those of you who think that cats can’t understand or speak English, Pluto just came up to the computer room and said, verbally, “I want to go out.” I responded, “OK, I’ll let you out,” and before I was even out of my chair, she was running downstairs for the door.

  1. Here’s a comment I posted elsewhere on 3/25/14

    I’m somewhat familiar with UCSB, or was 30 years ago, so I took an interest in this unhappy incident. The headlines screamed outrage, a 16 year old pro-life girl mugged on campus by a small but arrogant mob of feminist thugs aroused, instigated, and led by a tenured faculty member, and, in the Free Speech Area no less.

    But the rather mild action seen in the video doesn’t live up to the incendiary headline’s promise. Every printed word might be true but the visual record leaves the decidedly unsatisfactory impression the DA overcharged the crime.

    Certainly, Associate (indicates tenure) Professor Miller-Young wantonly overstepped the bounds of civility, morality, ethics, and the laws against intimidation and assault. She’s guilty of pushing the young girl around and of taking the sign which are both illegal and dead wrong, but neither is the stuff of assault and criminal battery.

    The girl’s physical injuries weren’t extensive, they amounted to about what you’d expect in a brief and minor scuffle. The real injury was to the concept of free and unfettered expression, something once universally held dear in the ranks of academia, it’s at the very core of the institution’s reasons to exist.

    That crime, the real crime, won’t be addressed by civil authorities, it’ll be up to UCSB’s Faculty Senate to deal with Ms Miller-Young, or not. Time will tell if the school’s academic leaders hold hallowed concepts in high esteem or cowardly yield to the shrills and catcalls of one of today’s noisiest and most privileged victim classes.

    PS: A quick look at AP Miller-Young’s academic record shows a decided lack of accomplishments which would qualify her for an academic appointment at any University of California campus. Perhaps the journalists confused Assistant (not tenured but on the tenured track) with the tenured title of Associate Professor and awarded her an honor she hadn’t earned.

    Miller-Young might meet the requirements for for a 1 year teaching contract, or for temporary employment at a community college, but her professional record is so thin and so undistinguished her unwarranted presence on campus might indicate that UCSB’s standards have already been so eroded the center no longer holds.
