Left Right Out

So, that #illridewithyou fuss.

The promoters of this - thing - unthinkingly accused Australians of being violent bigots.  They took advantage of an unfolding tragedy to push their opinions.

Rather than looking at the problems we were actually facing, they trotted out an imaginary problem, and offered anonymous support for an imaginary solution.

And it was all based on a lie.  Or, in Newspeak, an "editorial".

Rachel Jacobs, you are everything that is wrong in the world.

What Good Is A Dead Terrorist?

Not much good to anyone, it seems.

Two Notes About Recent Events

One, apparently he did have a license for that firearm.

Update: No, turns out the least surprising thing is true after all.   The firearm was unlicensed.


Two, Russell Brand is ot-nay ery-vay ight-bray, and people should just stop paying him attention.*

Update: Still a loudmouthed idiot.

* If you say "Who?" at this point, you are a good person.

No Australia Tax

Funny thing about the computer goodies I most want this Christmas: Adjusted for the current exchange rate and Australia's federal sales tax (which is included in list price) as opposed to American state and local sales taxes (which aren't), Apple's Retina iMac and Dell's P2715Q 4K monitor are actually slightly cheaper in Australia than the US.

Given how some manufacturers treat us downunder (coughLenovocough) this is refreshing.

A Serious Question

What the hell is it with Democrats and totalitarian iconography?  They don't even seem to care whether they steal from communists, fascists, or movie posters for 1984.

The Hillary poster in particular seems to come from some weird alternate universe in which Eva Peron was an admiral of the Imperial Japanese navy.

Portlandish

So, a reservoir in Portland is to be drained because someone urinated in it.  Essentially, they're using 38 million gallons of water to flush the loo.

This is...  Something of an overreaction.  Apart from the ick factor, and the possibility that the phantom micturator has an implausibly infectious UTI, the toxic substance in urine is urea.   And if the entire population of Portland emptied their bladders into that one reservoir, the concentration of urea would still be undetectable by taste or smell and below the allowed limit.*

Irony Alert

Terra-Medica, a company I'd not heard of before that apparently sells overpriced placebos, has been instructed by the US FDA to recall several batches of their pills because they may actually work - due to accidental contamination with penicillin.

President Obama’s Foreign Policy Is Based On Fantasy

Well, I know that, and you know that, but the interesting thing is that apparently the Washington Post knows that - because that's the title of their editorial today.

And via Insty, this very insightful analysis of why the dithering idiots in Washington can't get a line on Putin:
"This is less a question of how many collection resources we throw at Russia and more broadly about the analytic challenge of understanding Putin’s mind set,” said Michael Hayden, a former CIA director and NSA director under President George W. Bush. "Here our Secretary of State is saying this is not the Cold War, it’s win-win and it’s not zero sum. But for Vladimir Putin it is zero sum. That’s what we need to understand.”
