Been on a bit of a “staycation” this week: this Friday is a state holiday here in California (1), so I’ve taken today and tomorrow off to turn it into a five-day weekend. Ah, the life of the One Percent.
As you can imagine, the urge to post frothing right-wing rants has been low.
I’ll have something good for y’all tomorrow, I promise, but, for now, here’s satirist Andrew Klavan to explain to us the wonders and mysteries of Leftist Magical Thinking:
Trouble is, the magic often turns out to be a curse.
(1) In honor of Cesar Chavez, who fought for a farm workers union and was a strong opponent of illegal immigration.

Sorry she asked.
So, last night, the congresswoman from Florida and Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (1)(2) asked a question on Twitter:
As you can guess, many of us listed all our favorite Democrat policies. The Blaze recorded many responses, including my own:
Ah, five seconds of fame at last. Too bad Debbie Downer probably never saw it, since she blocked me on Twitter. (So thin-skinned these progressives are!)
Check out The Blaze to see the rest, and thanks to Pie Guevara for sending me the link.
(1) Whose term in office has seen the slaughter of Democratic candidates at the state and federal levels, including loss of the Senate. Good work, madame Chairwoman!
(2) Or, more likely, one of her interns, who’s now getting yelled at.

Don’t know where I get that idea from:
By rights these activists ought to be treated with tremendous suspicion. As we know, for example, from Greenpeace’s appalling campaigning track record – such as its mendacious smearing of Shell over Brent Spar, and its dishonest representations about the Greenland ice shelf – these environmental groups comprise hard-left political activists entirely unsuited to dispensing unbiased policy advice. Yet, time and again, these misanthropic, Gaia-worshipping Luddites with their Mickey Mouse degrees in sustainability, whale management and polar bear empathy studies and their half-baked, junk-science-fuelled opinions on how to save the world from capitalism and the non-existent problem of “climate change”, are granted seats at the top table in every government environmental decision-making process.
We didn’t vote for these soap-dodging, bunny-hugging loons yet, increasingly, they are ruling all our lives. It’s time we followed India’s example and told them exactly where they can stick their green agenda.
He shouldn’t be so shy with his opinions. It makes it hard to tell where he stands.
PS: I largely agree with him.

“Think I’ll go visit the Great Lakes.”
Is there nothing global warming can’t do?
