    I’m not trolling. I’m really concerned about Mrs. Palin. I may despise her politics and deride her intellect and be irked by her ill-founded arrogance, but I recognize that her blithe geniality would be admirable and enviable if I believed it to be attainable without possessing any of her less desirable qualities. I’m sure that since the founding of the Blaze Mr. Beck has ofttimes wept in despair upon learning what sinister darkness lurks in the hearts of some of his admirers. I sincerely worry about what effect such soul-crushing horrors could have upon Mrs. Palin, and I shudder at the prospect of a Sarah Palin whose every good and amiable attribute has been cruelly snuffed out leaving only the rest.

    She accidentally said something smart: “That’s what I’m most anxious about. Hearing from you.” Now if she were looking forward to hearing from us, that would be what she was most anxious FOR. If it’s what she’s most anxious ABOUT, that means that she’s nervous and scared of what she might hear from us, and she should be. She’s gotten used to hearing horrible and disgusting things from people who hate her, but until you start your own website like this you can’t really understand how sad and disturbing it can be to hear the most horrible and disgusting things that the people who like you have to say.

    Wow, and that ring must be pretty valuable because they are like thirty times rarer than Yankee World Series rings.

    That’s a lot smarter than assuming you can try it and not become one.

    For the same reason that it would reject Buddhistism or Communistism.

    In a country where people try to sue restaurants for getting them fat, and gun makers for getting them shot, do you really think that anybody but a criminal organization is going to decide that selling heroin to anybody dumb enough to want to be a junkie is a sound business model?

    It’s racist because black kids don’t smoke more than white kids and they don’t use in higher numbers than white kids, but white kids rarely go to jail for it. A few months in the slammer may not doom you to a life of crime, but it increases your opportunities to become a criminal and decreases your opportunities to become something else, so sending people up for any amount of time for something that shouldn’t be illegal contributes to making a problem worse instead of solving it.

    Too late for what? It was always to o late to prevent people from smoking it just because it is illegal, but it is never too late to stop sending people to jail for it. It is never too late to stop causing otherwise law-abiding citizens to lose respect for the law. It is never too late to put money in the pockets of American farmers instead of criminal organizations.

    “Cannabis is still a Schedule 1 drug, there fore;”

    There is no logical basis to that “therefore.” The fact that somebody once claimed something once something doesn’t make it so. That’s like saying that if the Fish and Wildlife Service started calling a bear a bird it would, therefore, have two wings, two feet, a beak and feathers.

    No we just don’t have to worry about them as much, because we believe in education, so our kids won’t have to compete for the opportunity to perform unskilled labor that could be done just as well by people who can barely speak English.

    You had me at “increase the angry reactions from Republicans.” If they hate it, I love it. It must be the right thing to do, and even if it isn’t, it’s worth it, so do it.

    Hate may been an overstatement, but the National Review article does have a weird vibe of desperation to concoct some kind of logical sounding excuse for disliking a guy who most normal people seem to find pretty much impossible to not like.

    I’m tempted to say “Billions and billions,” but that wouldn’t be true. Seriously, lots of people, many millions of people; he is a frequent guest on late night talk shows and news programs, and the go to guy to explain anything about science, especially astronomy, in a way that laymen will understand.

    And, this should really go without saying, but be sure to see London and Paris instead of just flying over, riding through the Chunnel and coming back.

    When you’re going to Chichen Itza, do plan to take a day to see Uxmal, too. It’s about a hundred miles away, and just as wondrous.

    Does “go to 4/7 wonders of the world” mean the sites on all four lists of the seven wonders of the world? That one is going to take some doing, even if the pyramids are the only one of the ancient wonders that still exists. There are seven wonders of the natural world, Grand Canyon, Great Barrier Reef, Harbor at Rio de Janeiro, Mt. Everest (let’s assume she just wanted to see it up close, and that her poor parents will not be expected to actually climb the damn thing), Northern Lights, Paricutin Volcano, and Victoria Falls. There are seven modern wonders: Empire State Building, Golden Gate Bridge, CN Tower, Chunnel, Itaipu Dam, Panama Canal, and Netherlands North Sea protection system, all very impressive even if some of them are lacking in romance compared to the other lists. There are seven “new” wonders, most of which are very old, but not quiet as old as the ancient wonders: Chichen Itza, Christ the Redeemer (dammit honey I told you we should have gone up there when we were in town to see the harbor), Great Wall of China, Machu Picchu, Roman Colosseum, Taj Mahal, and Petra, Jordan.

    She has parachuting and skydiving as two items. Do they have to do it twice to fill the list?

  • [1] July 26, 2014 at 6:23am

    Okay, it’s not because every statement of fact in every article either carries a citation of a source, or a note clearly alerting the reader that no authoritative source has yet been cited.
