The brutal murder of Australian Chris Lane by three “bored” teens earns a dreaded frowny face from Jesse Jackson.

John Stossel: “Beware the warrior cops”.

Will Boehner and company get the message before it’s too late? (If I were a betting man, I’d need to get some very good odds to gamble on the affirmative – and even then I sure wouldn’t bet the farm).

Ace reporter Jack Wiley Dithers lands exclusive interview with an al-Qaeda operative.

Transparency so thick you can cut it with a knife.

ObamaCare comes to Charlottesville, Virginia.

Boy on a Bike suffers in his, er, amour propre from a sudden cold snap.

An increasingly intrusive federal government threatens artistic freedom – just ask Swampy.

Isn’t this slightly more ominous than the antics of a rodeo clown?

One of the biggest, and most overlooked, threats to our freedom today comes from a lazy and negligent Congress that delegates its power to the executive branch. Charles Cooke:
But for the essential balance of power to be upset, one needs neither a tyrant nor a coup; one needs only a compliant or underconfident branch of government. This we have seen since Obama’s inauguration. In the past four years, Congress has happily handed over to the executive branch regulation of the environment, of the financial sector, and of the health-care market. It is currently considering doing the same thing with immigration.
Boehner, Cantor et al seem hopelessly stupid on this point (or cunningly complicit; pick your poison).

The new normal in employment.

Those poor Oklahoma teens.

No matter what punishment the court metes, they will have already been frowned upon by the Rev.

Jackson ought to realize that the worst thing he could do is stir things up with inflammatory rhetoric. What he needs to do is dial passions down, not agitate them further.

Haven't we learned our lesson yet? Every time Sarah Palin burps, millions of poor brown children are slaughtered by jackbooted Klansmen of the NRA. Does Jackson really want to go down that same road?

Where is a George Zimmermann when you need one?

Well, my Pub Dwelling Kinsman, I think George Zimmerman has learned his lesson by now. He's in hiding, with the entire racial grievance business howling at his heels, baying for blood.

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
But in ourselves, that we are underlings."
