The columnist and activists who were screaming bloody murder during the Trayvon Martin affair are maintaining a deadly silence.
Jesse Jackson was cornered into making a brief tweet on the matter, and it’s illuminating.
Praying for the family of Chris Lane. This senseless violence is frowned upon and the justice system must prevail.Time posted: 21 Aug 2013, 15:02:20
‘This senseless violence is frowned upon’?
This the man who called Trayvon Martin a “martyr” and said “martyrs have powers” and “He represents all of us”, who called Florida the “Selma of our time” and an”apartheid state”, who said that George Zimmerman needed to be prosecuted by the UN Human Rights Commission ( if they can get a moment free from demonizing Israel) ?
Frowned upon? Let’s not get too harsh here , Reverend Jackson.
California handed out over $120 million in tax credits and incentives for specific small business startups over the past five years. And now, like a child on a playground, the state’s Franchise Tax Board is asking for all that money back.
With interest, no doubt.
At issue is a tax incentive program put in place by lawmakers that was recently declared unconstitutional by the courts. (See, Pelosi, this is why you read bills before passing them.)
After the court decided the incentive programs were unconstitutional by state standards, the Franchise Tax Board decided, “Hey. . . That means we should’ve been paid all those taxes!”
Wasn’t it Thomas Jefferson who said government should fear the people, and not the other way around? The apparently unanimous fear of California’s taxing authority is merely the symptom of an over-reaching and intrusive authority. Investors hit by the taxes refused to speak out, in fear of actions taken by a government agency that has declared itself entitled to other people’s legally acquired wealth. (Heaven forbid any of these investors also declare they are members of the tea-party. . .)

Year after year, Mark “death spiral” Sereze was making the exact same claim, that Arctic ice was locked in a “death spiral” and would soon vanish. Bet he was embarrassed when that never happened.
You can see how this works: the alarmists come up with an arresting image that short-circuits rational thinking by frightening people with some dire image of a catastrophic event that’s happening somewhere far, far away which they can’t see themselves (it’s always far away, notice, the top of the world, the bottom of the ocean, etc). Then, using the time-honoured methods of propaganda, they keep relentlessly hammering the image home over and over and over again until the facts are no longer the main issue. So deeply has the image become ingrained in the public consciousness that believe will believe the lie of the Arctic death spiral over all other evidence.
What happened in July 2011 that caused so many globalZ-warmZ moonbats to finally shut up?
» The day the Global Warming death spiral began
Let the historic dissection begin. Man-made global warming is a dying market and a zombie science.
The big peak in late 2009 was the double-whammy of Climategate and Copenhagen (aka Hopenhagen). It’s all been downhill since then.
But something that caught my eye was the drop in mid 2011 (or precisely — July 29, 2011) when media stories fell by half, a step-change fall from which they never recovered.
What looks like the most important clue was a key report issued on June 1 by the World Bank which said the international carbon market was in deep trouble …
Lemme Summit Furya: the money making aspect of globalZ-warmZ fell flat. When the globalZ-warmZ moonbats realized they weren’t going to get rich it just wasn’t that important anymore.
If the media had really reported what happened in Climategate at the time, they could have led opinions instead of being the mere recorders of history after the fact — telling the world what it mostly already knew. The MSM is in its own little version of a death spiral, largely because we no longer trust it to report the news without omissions. Science journalists could have punctured the global warming scare years ago if they’d been doing their jobs. Thank goodness for Booker, Bolt and Ridley, and for Delingpole. Thank goodness for Blogs.

Illegal immigrants have boldly demanded everything from civil rights in the U.S. to driver’s licenses and government benefits such as welfare and discounted tuition at public universities, so why stop there?
Now they want American taxpayers to finance their organ transplants
