Myths and facts about the Wisconsin union protests

February 21, 2011

The conservative Heritage Foundation produced this video, contrasting claims made by protesters in Wisconsin with the facts about the financial aspects of the budget-balancing bill proposed by Governor Walker. I’ll let you be the judge, but I really, really hope none of these people are teaching History:

Doesn’t Godwin’s Law apply to protests, too?

Even for Juarez, this is bad

February 21, 2011

While our eyes are riveted on revolution in the Islamic world and the struggle between labor unions and representative democracy in Wisconsin, the cartel wars in Mexico rage on — 53 dead in Juarez in the last three days:

The El Paso Times reported Monday that the 53 victims, between Thursday and Saturday, included a police officer, a municipal patrolman and a state investigator.

A shootout Thursday in Juarez, across the border from El Paso, left a police officer and two alleged hit men dead. Chihuahua police identified the slain officer as Ricardo Torillo Sandoval.

Later Thursday, state police investigator Jesus Manuel Cruz Landin was shot and killed on his way home. A suspect has been arrested.

On Saturday, Patrolman Benjamin Nunez Nunez was shot and killed by a driver at a traffic stop.
Juarez Mayor Hector Murguia said Saturday that police will keep fighting crime.

I’m sure that’s reassuring to the people of your city, Mr. Mayor, since you’ve done such a bang-up job, so far.

MEANWHILE: You may have a hard time catching a taxi in Acapulco, since a dozen cabbies were killed over the weekend:

At least 12 taxi drivers were murdered during the weekend in Mexico’s touristic coastal city of Acapulco, Guerrero, officials said Sunday.

On Friday, five taxi drivers were found dead in or around their vehicles, and on Saturday, one driver was found dead and tied to his taxi with several gunshot wounds. Later that evening, two others were found shot dead inside their vehicles, one of them being decapitated.

In a separate incident, a group of gunmen opened fire against another taxi cab, killing the driver and three passengers.

The killing spree continued into Sunday, and reached the touristic areas of Acapulco. Five vehicles were set on fire and a chopped up body was later discovered in an apartment building

But there’s no security problem just past our southern border…

Remind me to take my next vacation in some place safe, like Baghdad.

Details on the assault on Lara Logan

February 21, 2011

Stripped and beaten with flag poles. Great way to celebrate your victory and do your country proud, you jackasses.

Of course, in their sick, twisted minds they thought they were justified in attacking and raping Logan, because they thought she was Jewish.

Maybe it’s time for the Ten Plagues to make a return visit.

UPDATE: More nauseating details, courtesy of Dana Loesch.
