The bizarre story of socialist IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn was almost storybook: The socialist guardian, now facing sordid sexual-battery charges, we are told, was slumming in a $3,000 per night hotel, with an understanding that he can show up at any time at an Air France flight and hop on a first-class seat. His sense of entitlement — from violating the law to living like 18th-century French royalty to purportedly having his way with a worker of the lower classes — was the logical bookend to the IMF’s harsh lectures to Greeks and others to suck it up, cut back, and live according to their means in these times of global recession. (Not to mention the prior exemptions granted by the IMF to the suspect’s past sexual peccadillos.) It is almost as if the more our global experts assure us that equality-of-result central planning works, the more such an egalitarian veneer seems to mask a self-indulgent core.
The ball is now in Gov. Brown’s court to either refute or trump all that, and either save or bury the nearly dead state. I wish him well, and pray that he has the courage and wisdom to speak the truth and act on it, a truth that would earn him dislike from some of those who supported and funded him and now are crowded up at the for-a-while-longer-above-water bow of the sinking Titanic. He has the opportunity to be either a savior and renaissance figure, or both the youngest and the oldest failed governor of a failed state.

An old MSgt. sitting in the eighth row thought to himself,
‘Did I hear her right? Is the captain a woman? ‘
When the attendant came by he said ‘Did I understand you right? Is the captain a woman?’
‘Yes,’! said the attendant, ‘In fact, this entire crew is female.’
with only women up there in the cockpit.’
‘That’s another thing, Sergeant,’ said the crew member,
‘We No Longer Call It The Cockpit’
‘It’s The Box Office.’
‘Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she’ll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she’ll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she’ll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she’ll give you her heart.
She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.’
The message, once again, delivered loud and clear to America’s friends, allies and enemies alike, is that the U.S. can’t be relied on.
This is what American voters get when they elect to the presidency an underexperienced man weighed down by an oversized ego.
Roberts found “no basis in law, fact or logic” for the administration’s position that Arizona should be prevented from requiring use of E-Verify in the name of federal “preemption of state activity.” The states are free to enforce federal law even if the feds are unwilling to do so.
As the scimitar of Islam slices through the pale white throat of England, they will gasp as the light fades in their eyes, “But…but…we banned Michael Savage to prove our…our…tol..er..annnnnc…..”
Now that’s what I call a precious comment!
