Slate: What if Bundy Ranch Were Owned by a Bunch of Black People? That depends. If one of the people in question is notorious tax-evader Al Sharpton the the scenario likely ends with the President attending another one of his parties -while the victims of the Tawana Brawley hoax remain unpaid and the victims of the Freddy’s Fashion Mart massacre remain dead. Of course that is not a perfect comparison. Sharpton doesn’t produce any cattle, even if he is responsible for a lot of the stuff that comes out of their back ends.

Rory Reid: Rancher Cliven Bundy “Should Be Prosecuted“: Sure thing Rory, let’s just go ahead and put that on the agenda. Right behind the prosecution of US Senators that funnel campaign funds to their grandchildren and punk kids that can’t sell out US Citizens to Chinese corporations without first using the BLM as their own private army.

UConn basketball star: Hard to see jersey getting sold while I struggle to eat. Perhaps it is time to do away with athletic scholarships altogether. Sure watching kids play games is fun and all but is it really worth the ever lessening value of an undergraduate degree brought about by the issuing of so many illegitimate college diplomas?

The spoiled brats are back! Just like locusts the Fleabaggers are set to descend again. And just like locusts they are interested only in consuming all they did not create leaving waste lands of want and need for a middle class expected to pay for their demands. Demands that include the accumulation of boutique computers, boutique video cameras, boutique cell phones and, sweatshop made name brand protest clothing and coffee so expensive/tasteless that you are most certainly paying for the cup and not what is in it.

Michael Moore: General Motors ‘criminals’ deserve death:
When Michael Moore got his way and General Motors became accountable to the government, and not the consumer, he virtually guaranteed the situation that we face today. That is the 800 pound gorilla in the room, unfortunately that gorilla has become obscured by the 8000 pound Michael Moore standing in front of it.

BREAKING NEWS: President Fears Chinese Might Beat America to the Sun. With a dire prediction for the future of American business and industry the President warned -on 04/01/14- that we had better act now or risk losing the sun to the Chinese. “The Chinese have already cornered 60 percent of the solar market. That leaved less than 25 percent of the sun remaining for Americans to use. We’d better kick it up a notch before there is nothing left.” The president continued with one of his famous teachable moments “For those of you that didn’t pay attention in science class the sun is very important. It is a giant ball of burning fire hundreds of miles away. When it revolves around the earth it creates what we know as day and night. The sun is very useful for lots of stuff on earth. For example a process known as photosyphilis makes it possible for plants and animals to grow. That is why we must beat the Chinese to the sun. We must land a man on the sun and return him safely before the decade is out … the fate of the American farmer depends on it.” The President’s comments have been met with some skepticism since their introduction, but only from the usual assortment of racists, haters and flat earther types.

Stephen Cobert targeted by twitter anti-speech thugs: It is not that we defend what he says, it is that we defend his right to say it. Voltaire came up with that, or something very much like it. So far as we know Voltaire never had a twitter account so the digital speech fascists will have to resort to burning his books instead.

Rand Paul: Obama should explain to Pope Francis why he’s infringing on faith What a great idea, the President engaging the Pope in a conversation instead of just listening in on them.

Michelle: ‘There Were Actually Laws in America that Allowed Discrimination Against Black People Like Me’. Yes there were. And they were deplorable, disgusting and the shame of those that feel the state has the authority to establish two, or more, sets of rules for America. Unfortunately those people are still with us. And our beloved First Lady is married to one of them.

Are Voters Too Sensitive to ‘Microaggressions?’ Professors say Republican ‘microaggressions’ have pushed Asian Americans to vote Democrat. Great idea. Vote for the party that doesn’t commit any ‘microaggressions’ but has put your demographic into internment camps.

Seattle socialist Sawant challenged over minimum wage: Recently small business men and woman took the city council member to task over her war on small business, prosperity, employment and the middle class through a push to price fix wages. From the exchange it seems likely that Sawant has never run anything ever -with the exception of other people’s lives. (video at link)

CNN’s Don Lemon: ‘Is It Preposterous’ to Think a Black Hole Caused Flight 370 to Go Missing?: On the off chance that Flight 370 was swallowed up by a black hole at least it won’t be alone, it will have Mr. Lemon’s ratings to keep it company.

MSNBC’s New Host Ronan Farrow Not Afraid To Tackle The Tough Issues… Like Grown Men Who Dress Up As “My Little Pony”: Wow and we didn’t think anything could sink faster than Farrow’s ratings. If this keeps up by the end of the week he could be doing one of those “who’s your daddy” DNA specials that Maurey Povich pioneered back in the 1990′s. Come to think of that he wouldn’t even need any guests for that episode. Seriously though, the only thing emptier than Al Capone’s vault was this guys promise. (H/T Not so Silent. Thanks!)

Paul Krugman: And what’s wrong with rising wages, anyway? Nothing so long as they are made up of solid dollars. Unfortunately what Krugman is championing is an accounting error. A situation in which those with the least productive ability will have their labor price fixed at greater than it is worth and paid for by wealth that doesn’t exist. Which sounds all well and good until that theft of value is offset by greater unemployment, higher costs of living and a general theft of savings.
