Cartoonist Jack Ohman thinks the tragic fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas, was caused by a lack of government bureaucracy. So he depicted Texas Governor Rick Perry, who has been enthusiastically recruiting businesses, as luring people to their doom in a fiery explosion.
Besides the fact that it doesn’t work and carries harmful side effects, Congress is now poised to give you one more reason to avoid taking a seasonal flu vaccine: a 75 cent per-dose tax. Save money and your health by avoiding the flu vaccine at all costs.
If Stephen King, Dean Koontz and William Peter Blatty were locked in a room with a laptop, the collected works of Edgar Allen Poe and a truckload of Bogota, Colombia’s finest nose candy, I’m not sure they could come up with something quite as horrifying as a regular business day at the abortion clinic and house of horrors run by accused murderer Kermit Gosnell.
No amount of online spying is too much, said the criminal elected class in the House of Representatives, as it passed the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and (non)Protection Act (CISPA) yesterday over hollow veto threats by the Administration of President Barack Obama.

During the hunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the teenaged Boston Marathon bombing suspect, local and Federal law enforcers shut down the city of Boston. No mass transit. No taxis. No moving about of any kind. “Stay inside, don’t go to work, don’t go to the store,” said the “authorities.”
Acting like the petulant, narcissistic, Marxist child he is and flanked by former Representative Gabrielle Giffords and some of his Newtown school shooting props, President Barack Obama lashed out at Senators who voted down an attack on the 2nd Amendment, calling it a “shameful day in Washington.”
An organization calling itself Moms Demand Action is one of the latest nonsensical formations conceived from the highly emotive national debate over gun control. A study of some of the group’s recent efforts to influence public perception reveals a strategy that packs a one-two punch that is equal parts “do it for the kids” and utter fallacy.
It’s always difficult to pen a column in the wake of a nightmare like the Boston Marathon attack. I could rhetorically bellow at the top of my lungs. But any shrieking I might do would be wasted. The victims have bigger worries. The perpetrators either don’t care or enjoy the effect. And life would go on.
