Wisconsin’s still part of America, right?

Seriously, is it? Or did it get traded to Russia for a province to be named later?

In any event, politically-motivated home invasions by law enforcement strike me as just about the most unconstitutional thing on offer these days in terms of the ongoing disintegration of our civil rights. Plus, there is the not inconsiderable chance that someone is going to get killed simply by accident.


My old home movies have a better chance of winning a prize at Cannes than Lindsey Graham has of becoming the GOP presidential nominee.

This is the kind of utter detachment from reality that makes me wonder if ghosts aren’t simply the disembodied egos of mega-narcissists, over which even the natural laws of physics and biology have an incomplete hold.

Ted Cruz schools the NYT

On the subject of gun rights.

Read the whole thing (I love this guy).

Hillary, the cash cow

A new book by investigative reporter Peter Schweizer promises to be a good read: Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich. And if she’s elected, maybe someone will eventually write a book entitled How America Completely Lost Its Mind and Made the Inevitability of President Cankles a Self-Fulfilling Prophesy.

BTW, picked up the “cash cow” bit in the title of this post from Small Dead Animals (one of those things I wish I had thought of).
