Tab Clearing

John Walker: Why I Am Not a Conservative.  Among infringements upon liberty, it's difficult to top murdering citizens without any legal proceeding whatsoever.

SB7: Judge, Jury, Executioner.   The President of the United States of America unilaterally claimed the power to execute his fellow citizens based on nothing but his own say-so. That actually happened in real life. How are people not seething with anger about this? Has the whole world gone crazy? Am I the only one that gives a shit about the rules?

NYT Ombudsman: Who Can't America Kill?  The answer, as a matter of law, is simply unknown right now. That is an extraordinary thing, arising out of the new tactics and technology in use in the American offensive against terrorists and their networks. For the news media, it should be intolerable that the question goes unanswered.

Yet, by the ground rules of press and government interaction now in place, the government opts not to say and the press, including The New York Times, is pushed back on its heels.

DIY Laundry soap.  I am so going to whip some of this up.

An Argument Against Taking Occupy Wall Street Seriously. I guess the idea is that the American people will give up capitalism once they see how wonderful it is to camp out in a park and dress up like Zombies.

Occupy Wall Streeet Could be Disaster for Democrats.   ... when this many famous millionaires get preachy at the same time it can only mean one thing: they’ve had it up to here with the rich.  Just as when hundreds of protestors claim police brutality their next logical step is to demand a larger and more powerful state, of course.

Jerry Pournelle: Occupy Wall Street?   I can’t say I really blame the “Occupy Wall Street” groups. If I were their age I’d be thinking of joining them. They don’t really know what they want, but they really don’t want more of what they’re getting.

JWZ: Liquid Television.  Wow, it looks like MTV has posted the Liquid Television series from the early 90s -- possibly all of it! Good quality, too. 

I introduced my teen to The Maxx.  He's likes it!
