Half and Half

Sex, cocaine, air pollution, anger, caffeine and alcohol among top causes of heart attacks: study

Come between me, my woman, and my rum & cola and you're a dead man. The rest you can have.

Pants On Fire! and sundry shorts


Despite the copious reporting from respectable sources that the White House was up to its lymph nodes in the Wisconsin protests, the White House is now denying involvement.
Administration officials said Sunday that the White House had done nothing to encourage the demonstrations in Wisconsin — nor was it doing so in Ohio, Florida and other states where new Republican governors are trying to make deep cuts to balance their budgets.

Pull the other one! The fast backtrack tells us exactly how poorly the protests and the legislator walkout walkouts are playing with the public, even as union and Democrat leaders go all in.

Only the dimmest voters are going to buy the administration's attempted triangulation. Those observing more closely will notice the admin's determined efforts to entrench union power, even at the cost of the workers the unions claim to be representing. Well, enough of that. Onward into the fog ...


In an astounding display of complete idiocy, Arvada police have arrested, handcuffed, and thrown in a cell a handicapped 11-year-old for drawing stick figures at school as a coping mechanism as directed by the child's therapist. One notes that the thousands of dollars the parents have spent on dealing with the legal issues would have been much better spent on, you know, the therapy the kid needs. Well, let's just keep on trucking through the idiocies of the day.


Detroit is closing HALF their public schools to stay afloat. But don't worry, they haven't asked the unions for any concessions yet!


Over on the Left Coast, our ever-nannyish friends in Loonie Land San Francisco are all set to ban infant circumcision. Apparently the science is not allowed to be an issue. Maybe they just want to discourage certain ethnic groups from living in the city.
