Grace Dunham on NYC Cop Executions: “cops’ lives are worth no more than anyone else’s. or, rather, all lives are more important than worth.” As for the first part of her statement; the very excellent sentiment that, all things being equal, all live are equal is completely ruined by her use of the concept to diminish the death of two people whose (so far as we can tell) sole intention was to protect and serve and whose deaths were directly caused by that intention. Obviously to her their lives are not equal. As for the second part of the statement. We are guessing that the ludes finally kicked in.

IRS chief warns of refund delays over budget cuts: After having perfected the arts of theft and oppression of political dissent the IRS will now try their hand at extortion. In the meantime please enjoy some of this excellent entertainment. It, along with some 220 other parties they threw for themselves, only cost the taxpayer around 50 million dollars.

The Department of Social Justice: Federal officials lectured Ferguson residents about “white privilege.” Unfortunately that privilege does not include being considered a full citizen by this Justice Department.

Reports: Obama Mulling Sanctions on Israel:

The Obama administration is refusing to discuss reports that emerged early Thursday claiming that the White House is considering imposing sanctions on Israel for continuing construction on Jewish homes in Jerusalem.

Achtung Juden! President Jim Crowbama has decreed that you will not be allowed to live in the city your ancestors settled over two thousand years ago due to continuing questions about the quality of your racial and ethnic make-up. Now please report to the the nearest train station/depot and await further instruction.

Obama: The only people with the right to object to immigration are Native Americans. How we long for the good old days when Presidents affirmed the government’s responsibility to protect our rights instead of insisting that we don’t have them.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes Forced Off Air Following Sounds Of Gunfire: So the guy that expected Darren Wilson to take a bullet to prove he isn’t a racist cannot be counted upon to do the same. By the end of this clip we can’t tell which is more full of crap, Mr. Hayes or his underoos.

Bill Clinton and Bill Cosby One has been accused of rape, multiple accounts of sexual assault and routinely used his immense power and influence to silence his accusers . . . and the other one is Bill Cosby. Must be that infamous white privilege we keep hearing about.

Barack Obama: ‘We are and always will be a nation of immigrants’: America has always been a nation of immirants, true enough. This fiat rule by an imperial president that answers neither to the people nor their democratically elected representatives in congress . . . that part is new.

AC/DC drummer accused of trying to arrange murders: We were a bit thunderstuck when we heard this. Sure money talks and dirty deeds can get done dirt cheap but this guy wasn’t just looking for a quick shoot to thrill when he hired a big gun to inject the venom into a particular ball breaker. And he’s gonna have to develop a real stiff upper lip when they send for the man because there won’t be no jailbreak once he is back in black and white stripes. Still we must admit, this guy’s got big balls!

Bette Midler Sounds Election Alarm “DON’T VOTE FOR OBSTRUCTIONISTS!” We’ve a President that has kill lists -enforced by drone, uses the IRS to crush political dissent, has stolen trillions of dollars from the workers of this country and can spy on every man, woman and child living in it. We think a little obstruction is in order.

So come on Bette Midler. Join us in telling Obama, “You don’t own me.”

Tim Cook Comes Out of the iCloset: We’ve a strong belief in what Jefferson called the “natural aristocracy”. In this situation that can, and does, mean that we’ve no real interest in what Cook does in his private time and so long as he doesn’t stray too far from Job’s vision we will likely continue to be a fan of the products he is responsible for. However one thing within his statement did strike us as odd.

Being gay has given me a deeper understanding of what it means to be in the minority and provided a window into the challenges that people in other minority groups deal with every day.

We think this statement is lacking in sophistication. The depth of Cooks empathy is severely limited as -unlike African Americans under Jim Crow- he could keep this part of his identity secret and -unlike the Christians under Nero- he kept that identity secret until it became a benefit to him professionally.

Houston mayor says daughter was denied driver’s test because she has two moms. A couple of weeks after getting caught going full Nazi on political dissent Houston Mayor Annise Parker claims her daughter was the victim of the systemic homophobia inherent in DMV paperwork. If this were anymore predictable it would be a Nicholas Sparks novel. If it were any more pathetic it would be a movie based on the same.

Military to deploy Ebola response team within U.S.- It is curious, the military that could not be used to protect the citizens from foreign Ebola will now be used to control them because of it.

BAG NEWS: Obola Visual Attacks on Obama Pick Up Right Where Kenya/Muslim Slurs Left Off- The call for these guys to change their name from Bag News to, the more informative, Barf Bag News is likely to be resisted as it violates their policy against honesty.

POLL: The Only Thing Chicagoans HATE More than Mayor Rahm Emanuel is the Green Bay Packers (!): Seeing as how only living residents were queried this poll is not likely to give a strong indication as to the results of the next mayoral election.

Pelosi demands hearing on Ebola funding: CDC incompetence directed a symptomatic Ebola carrier to fly across the country on a commercial airplane. We shudder to think what they, and similar government systems, could accomplish with more money.

Ad Blames GOP Budget Cuts For Ebola Outbreak: The fires of incompetence and Ebola must be doused by cutting off the means by which they advance. In the case of the latter that means quarantines for the victims. In the case of the former that means no more money for idiots who, through both action and inaction, brought a plague through our borders.

Professor Jean Tirole Just Won The Nobel Prize In Economics: When we were kids in little league there used to be this thing called “The Hustle Award”. And you can just imagine the guy who snagged that one. Four eyes, two left feet and a couple of butter mounds where the hands should have been. Some years, ok decades, later we find that this award still exists. Only now instead of being given to fellows that failed on the ball field it appears to be going to people that fail in an even more important one; economics. And by failure we mean unable to have predicted the world financial meltdown and unable to prescribe actions significantly different from the ones that caused it in the first place. Interestingly enough there was a long lister for The Nobel Prize in Economics (or more accurately the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel) that has consistently not failed at either of those things. His name is Israel Kirzner and so far as we are concerned he is the MVP of econ.

Ebola Victim’s Family Blames Hospital and State:

Relatives of the first person to die of Ebola in the United States, joined by the Rev. Jesse L. Jackson Sr., continued on Saturday to denounce the treatment he and his family had received from a hospital here and from Texas officials, claiming that he had been cremated without their knowledge or permission and given substandard care because he was African.

At this point we can only hope that the family and Reverend Jackson can take some comfort in knowing that while Mr. Thomas Duncan is gone his legacy lives on so long as Americans continue to die from the plague he brought to this country.
