Wednesday links

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014
  • The federal no-fly list is unconstitutional. So says a judge. Not (apparently) because the fedgov is arbitrarily and secretly denying people their right to travel, but because it’s not offering a good enough appeals process for arguing our way off. Don’t expect much to change.
  • Gadzooks, it appears that the pampered darling Chelsea Clinton is even more out-of-touch than Mommy C. (Via Never Yet Melted)
  • Church knowingly hires registered sex offender (pedophile) as pastor. The predictable happens. But I suppose you could say this dude was a step above their previous pastor. Or … um, maybe not.
  • The security state as a bumbling giant. Gads, I love you, Borepatch. Love that bit of coding you blogged about, too.
  • Happiness is being a loser. Well, maybe not exactly. But this 2012 article nails how I perceive matters. I know positive thinking works for natural-born positive thinkers. But those of us who were born to see the glass as half empty have reasons — and a certain wisdom. Trying to force optimism has never done anything but make me grumpy from disappointment.

If you’re wondering when part II of my “observations on being obsolete” piece might be coming along — fear not. I’m working on it. it’s just that I’m also deadlining on three articles, too. So a little more patience.

In the meantime, always remember: We Our Lords and Masters Shall Overcome.”

And if that isn’t the most inspiring embarassing thing you’ve seen all year, I’d like to know what is.

    I’ve a friend who claims his hyper insecure ex could find his stash of porn, taped to the underside of a drawer, within 40 minutes of him bringing it into the house.

    I suspect that lady would make short work of any phone that had texts to a bit on the side stored on it.

  2. MamaLiberty Says:

    The agonized expressions of Pelosi, Reid, etc. have me wondering just what it is they were threatened with… How pathetic.

  3. Matt, another Says:

    The masters are threatened by the fact that the construct is coming apart and we kno it. Their masters don’t like failure, so they have lots,to,fear and no,where to hide.

  4. Paul Bonneau Says:

    What a bunch of whores. Nothing is beneath them, as long as they can retain their grip on power.

  5. Borepatch Says:

    Thanks, Claire. It’s experimental, but as you know these things spread pretty fast.

    Matt, the “masters” are ignoramuses. Fortunately. Not only is the world less orderly and intelligible than they think, it’s more so than they can imagine.

    Again, fortunately.

  6. naturegirl Says:

    Took a while to get thru the Happiness is being a loser article but it was worth it. :)

  7. Awtha Says:

    They already “overcame” – their in congress with all the bennies for life. I suppose the next song was kumbaya while we watch them all swap spit!
