War on “ISIS” falling apart? Sen Corker’s takedown of Sec State Kerry, left Barbara Boxer “Shaking and Trembling” (Video)

Wow, things just got really weird in the Senate Intelligence Committee, and awesome. I am very pleased to see this. I think the move on ISIS is a political one and that is just tragic. It will be more tragic if we go in there. Obama has no legitimacy at this point domestically and has even less in the overseas arena. Frankly the administration appears willing to sacrifice the lives of Americans so that it can keep the Senate.

Yeah, I said it.

Public university requires students to submit sexual history or face disciplinary action

Clemson cc

This is so (they say) Clemson can stay in compliance with Title 9 which states:

No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.

For some reason knowing how many times you’ve had sex, and what kind of sex you’ve had in the past 3 months affects whether someone has been discriminated against.

F  cc

Not surprising. I know a number of people in the medical field, mostly on the logistics side who are up in arms over Obamacare. Nobody knows what all the coding is. The codes coming in are all wrong. There are too many codes. Doctors aren’t being compensated correctly. Patients are confused as to who is paying for what. And I live where people are relatively savvy as to healthcare issues. I’m just down the road from a large medical school. I can only imagine what it’s like in other parts of the country.

The PEOPLE must make Washington pay for its crony capitalist ways, GOP or Dem

McConnell cc cc

Tim Carney in a recent column argues that if the GOP takes the Senate this fall the party “could wage war on crony capitalism.”

Unfortunately this is unlikely to happen. (At least this time around.)

Campus Cops With M-16s

KentState5 cc

Nothing says “education” like seeing the campus police stroll around the quad with machine guns. See, nowadays the governor doesn’t even need to bring in the National Guard. He or she can just instruct the university police to take care of things. Kent State could have been a wholly local affair.

Washpo’s liberal columnist Milbank on DC traffic cameras: “there was no safety threat in either case.” But the cameras are there for money, not safety. It’s enough to make anybody a libertarian.”

Good to see this. I doubt Dana will be joining the book club at the Liberty Tavern across the river in Arlington anytime soon, but at least he said it.

Big government, no matter how much you may think you like it will eventually creep into some part of your life where you don’t want it. Then, it will be too late.
