Obamateurism of the Day: UmbrellaGate!

If this was “43” it would be front page MSM news.

UmbrellaGate!

Really, how hard is it for a Harvard man to maneuver an umbrella through a gate? Oh wait, I see the problem: missing TOTUS! (Teleprompter of the United States, who has a nice blog you can find among the links to the right)

Here is another pic I just found. He actually lifted the umbrella over the gate, when all he had to do was simply close it for a second or turn it slightly to pass through. Once again we’re led down the path of most resistance.

Bias in Higher Education? An example.

Religious America Has to Stop

The above article was written and published by the editor in chief, Sequita Bean, in last week’s edition of The Current, the student newspaper of The University of Missouri-St. Louis. This is a glaring example not only of bias in reporting, but simply bad writing form. To be fair, this was an opinion piece, but I found the writing terrible! I’m not sure if there were space constraints or a lack of time, but the story seems very heavy on unfounded opinion and impression and almost completely lacking in fact.
Where are the facts and sources to back-up some of these assertions? Where is the contrasting viewpoint to frame your argument? Where is the context, historical or otherwise?
So, there you have it: The product of the current liberal establishment press in academia.
Impressed? Disgusted? Let’s hear it!

*EDIT*
You will also notice from this article that Sequita blames religion for terrorism against us, hate from other nations, and our lack of social progressivism. And here I thought they just hated us for our freedom.

A special day.

Today, August 27th, 2010, I celebrate my 27th birthday. This is the only time my age and birthdate will coincide!
Some of the important events which occurred on this day include:

The unofficial surrender of The Empire of Japan in 1945. August 27th was the first day Allied troops began occupying the home islands of Japan, ending World War II.

The 1883 eruption of the Indonesian island/volcano Krakatoa. This eruption was one of the most violent in recorded history, generating an explosion heard over 3000 miles away and registering on every seismograph on Earth. This explosion is estimated to have been THIRTEEN THOUSAND TIMES more powerful than the nuclear device which destroyed Hiroshima, Japan.
The eruption and subsequent ash cloud caused what is known as The Little Ice Age in Europe. It is believed the famous Edvard Munch painting, The Scream, accurately captures the unique optical effects caused worldwide by the ash, including a blood-red sky for some time.

Edwin L. Drake drilled the first successful U.S. oil well near Titusville, Pa on this day 1859.

Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois was nominated for president by the Democratic National Convention in Denver, CO on this date, 2008.

On this day in 410 AD the Visigoths ended their three day sack of Rome. This was the first time in nearly 800 years Rome had been invaded, and this event is marked as the beginning of the fall of the Roman Empire.

On this day in 1896 was the Anglo-Zanzibar War, the shortest was in history, between the United Kingdom and Zanzibar. The war lasted from 9am-9:45am.

First successful flight of the Heinkel He-178, the world’s first jet aircraft, took place in Germany, 1939.

On this day in 2003 Mars made it closest approach to Earth. On the human scale this is an exceptionally rare astronomical event, only happening every SIXTY THOUSAND YEARS. I am quite honored to have this fall on my birthday and to have been alive at just the right time to appreciate it.
(Another event similar to this in rarity is the supposed “Mayan Armageddon” alignment which will occur on 12/21/2012. The Earth and Sol [our star, the Sun] will align with the super-massive black hole in the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. This event occurs only every 26,000 years.)

Notable People born on this date include:

Confucius, influential Asian philosopher, (08/27/551 BC)
Lyndon Baines Johnson, President of the US
Barbara Bach, foxy actress
Paul Reubens, Pee-Wee Herman
Mother Teresa, Humanitarian
Ed Gein, american serial killer
Carl Bosch, german chemist, nobel laureate, founder of mega-company Bosch.

Mexico to deter cartels…by making cash illegal?

Well, not exactly illegal….you just can’t use it to really buy anything. Why didn’t we think of that?

Mexico targets money-laundering with plan to limit cash transactions
Courtesy The Washington Post

Excerpt:
“Legislation introduced by the Calderon administration would make it illegal to buy real estate in cash. The new laws would also limit the purchase of vehicles, boats, airplanes and luxury goods to 100,000 pesos in cash, or about $7,700. Violators could be sentenced to five to 15 years in prison.”

Got that? You cannot buy anything costing more than $8k with cash….would this complicate YOUR life?

You know it’s bad when a warzone is safer…..

Venezuela, More Deadly Than Iraq, Wonders Why
H/T to (blah!) The New York Times

Preview:
“CARACAS, Venezuela — Some here joke that they might be safer if they lived in Baghdad. The numbers bear them out. In Iraq, a country with about the same population as Venezuela, there were 4,644 civilian deaths from violence in 2009, according to Iraq Body Count; in Venezuela that year, the number of murders climbed above 16,000. ”

Wow, Venezuela has a worse murder rate than Mexico, and Mexico is BAD right now. You’d actually be much safer vacationing in Baghdad or Kabul than Juarez or Caracas…..
