Linky Linky

From the Great and Powerful Czar of Muscovy, on the recent (and not so recent) spat of scandals in the Obama administration:

Let us see if we can figure out the pattern here. People who report to the President attempt to make him look tough and competent; through their actions, people die or have their Constitutional rights violated. The President has absolutely no idea what is happening.

Now let us reduce that further: People who report to the President attempt to make him look competent. The President has absolutely no idea what is happening. Allow us to simply that yet again: the President is an idiot and everyone around him knows this.

Ouch.

And something to ponder from Franklin Sanders:

On 14 May 1913 (same year the Federal Reserve was founded) John D. Rockefeller founded the Rockefeller Foundation with a gift of $100,000,000. According to inflation calculators that use understated US government figures, that would equal $2.35 billion today. However, in 1913 $100 million equaled 4,837,500 oz. of gold. At $1,425/ounce, that would be worth today $6.893 billion.

    I will show this to my Liberal roommate. He will be either enlightened or infuriated. Not sure I care which.

        No dice. Didn’t even get as far as showing him, he’ll refuse to read it.

        He trusts the government implicitly. I don’t think I feel safe with him knowing my whereabouts anymore. He’d kill me in my sleep if high command told him to.
