Brown is full of surprises. I've always admired his intellect, but when he was elected I thought he would apply the party doctrine to the problem and just raise taxes. Instead he seems to be working on a new type of solution.
“When we went out on the street and started asking people to sign a petition to ban ATM machines, we expected most of them to call us crazy or to simply ignore us. But in Barack Obama’s America, banning cash machines as economic stimulus actually seems like a fairly reasonable idea to many folks.”
Late last week, Thomas James Ball reached his breaking point. Driven to desperation by a system that bankrupted him and destroyed his family, Ball walked up to the main door of the Keene County, New Hampshire courthouse, doused himself with gasoline, and lit himself ablaze.
Hardly anyone seems to have noticed.

Not only is that a direct quote, the State Department actually chose it as the video highlight from her presser yesterday in Jamaica.
This is really just the cherry on top of the sundae that is our Libya mission, isn’t it? First, the guy who became famous for opposing “dumb wars” launches a new mission in Libya. Then he fights tooth and nail to avoid getting congressional approval, going so far as to ignore his own lawyers as to whether operations there are legal. Then his own secretary of state — who spent years trying to make amends to the anti-war crowd for voting to invade Iraq — turns around and kinda sorta questions the loyalty of administration critics.
I yearn for the old days when dissent was patriotic.

ONONDAGA, N.Y. (AP) — A man riding bareheaded on one of about 550 motorcycles in an anti-helmet law rally lost control of his cycle, went over his handlebars, hit his head on the pavement and died, police said Sunday.
The motorcyclist, 55-year-old Philip A. Contos, likely would have survived the accident if he'd been wearing a helmet, state troopers said.
Newsweek apparently longs for the days when Princess Diana was around to be in the news, and Newsweek had circulation. They photoshopped her onto this week's cover since, apparently, Kate isn't newsworthy enough on her own...
Is that for real??? If so, that seems sick to me.
