Caroline Glick on James Bond villain wanna-be, George Soros

My question is, just what the hell is he after? How does destabilizing western democracies lead to a better world?

If I had to venture a guess, I'd say that Soros wants a world controlled by a small elite, predictable and tidy, free from the messiness of individual liberty. Seems to me, though, that that kind of thing was tried on a large scale in the 20th century by various "visionaries", with rather negative results. The last thing we need is a revolutionary billionaire with a god complex.

Probably just a rounding error

"U.S. Army fudged its accounts by trillions of dollars, auditor finds".
The United States Army’s finances are so jumbled it had to make trillions of dollars of improper accounting adjustments to create an illusion that its books are balanced.

The Defense Department’s Inspector General, in a June report, said the Army made $2.8 trillion in wrongful adjustments to accounting entries in one quarter alone in 2015, and $6.5 trillion for the year. Yet the Army lacked receipts and invoices to support those numbers or simply made them up.
Simply made them up. Maybe I'll try that the next time I do my taxes, see what happens.


Another case of "mental illness", this time in Roanoke, Virginia: "Muslim screaming 'Allahu akbar' stabs two people, seriously injuring them".

Turn it around

What if one of Trump's assistants showed up as an editor on the masthead of some extremist publication - say, Aryan Nation Monthly or KKK Kwarterly - do you suppose he or she would be afforded the "no active role" excuse?

Abbreviated Sunday funnies

Very busy weekend, so I didn't have time to compile a proper list of funnies; however, this photoshop (if it is, in fact, a photoshop) can stand in for the regular feature...

At the risk of sounding like a broken record...

Guns and ammo. Get 'em while you can.
