The Guardian weighs in

No “terrorism” here, just the complicated act of a madman who by sheer coincidence happens to be of the muslemic persuasion.

Sometimes there is no explanation but crazed credulity for what happens next. Sometimes the perpetrators – from Boston, Massachusetts to Romford – don’t deserve the grand title of conspirators.

Oops!: Three more muslimes arrested in the beheading conspiracy.

But the Guardian couldn’t have predicted that, could it? I mean, a conspiracy of Islamics? Who’d have gussed?

When you’re that rich, what’s $80 million?

Obama’s new Commerce Secretary leaves out $80,000,000 in her financial disclosure forms due to a rounding error. She also said she was powerless to stop her trust fund managers from moving her offshore billions back to this country so they could be taxed, but she does admire and respect those American taxpayers who do still pay taxes: “where would we be without them?”

Too funny, except I suppose it isn’t

Forgot her permission slip

Forgot her permission slip in junior high

Right on the heels of a nationwide surge in barring teens from tanning salons, news breaks that most schools require a doctor’s note to use sunscreen on the playground.

And yes, thanks to an Instapundit reader, this irony has not gone unnoticed.

Reader George Milonas writes:

We pediatricians are being inundated with permission slips all day long. My paperwork has doubled over the last ten years in no small part because of idiotic school rules requiring parents and docs to sign off on virtually every common sense OTC item. They range from Tylenol and ibuprofen to hand lotion, sunscreen, and bug spray. Each requires its own special form. This is in addition to the actual prescription meds we prescribe like antibiotics and inhalers. It’s absolutely ridiculous when you consider these kids can literally sign for their own abortions without their parents’ permission.

I believe I said something along these lines just yesterday.

Maybe if we make it an “empowering women” issue we can get the YWCA to join us at the gun shop

on't forget to ask him to leave

Don’t forget to ask him to leave

Police tell 911 caller there is no one available to stop her rapist: “ask him to go away”. She did, he didn’t, she was raped and hospitalized.

“Uh, I don’t have anybody to send out there,” the 911 dispatcher told the woman. “You know, obviously, if he comes inside the residence and assaults you, can you ask him to go away? Do you know if he’s intoxicated or anything?”

The disarmament bunch want us to unilaterally throw down our guns and rely on the power of the state to protect us from evildoers.  That doesn’t seem to be working on a global level – ask the Rwandans about the UN “peace troops”  who stood aside and let entire villages be destroyed – and at least for this poor woman, it’s not a very effective policy in Oregon. Buy a gun, learn how to use it.
