Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Fat Lip at Nuremberg

AND OTHER TALL TALES OFF SHORT PIERS

Congratulations to the Navy SEALs, acquitted all. And Lt. Col. Bill Russell is closing in on the People’s congressional seat once held by Jack Murtha. A good week for the good guys.

Maybe we should give those SEALs the proposed “Courageous Restraint” medal–they showed a helluva lot more than I probably would have.

Speaking of beer and elections, Prof. Jacobson has this Jumping in Pools link:

Andrew Griffiths won in a 12 year dominated Labour district, with 44.5% of the vote, due in part for running a campaign based on beer. I’m not kidding, this issue was substantial in his election, even his campaign website has Supporting the Brewing Industry number two on his issues page, I just can’t believe it. Apparently 33% of the price of every pint of beer goes towards taxation in Britain, forcing local Pubs to close on a regular basis, while punishing casual beer drinkers for the problems of hostile alcoholics.

As Steyn noted here, the English pub is also under assault by mass Muslim immigration.

And on the Subprime Bomber:

Incidentally, one way of falling behind with your house payments is to take half a year off to go to Pakistan and train in a terrorist camp. Perhaps Congress could pass some sort of jihadist housing credit?

It’s dangerous to joke like that, Mark; this Congress enacts the punchlines.

Speaking of celebrations, I hope you celebrated Hard Hat Riot Day with Kathy Shaidle yesterday:

On May 8, 1970, New York mayor John Lindsay ordered all flags on city buildings lowered to half staff, in memory of the students who’d died in the Kent State shootings four days earlier.

Construction workers at the World Trade Center building site got wind of the plan. When anti-war protester assembled at the George Washington statue on Wall Street that day — complete with Viet Cong flags — suits and hard hats joined forces against the hippies, in one of the weirdest 70s events you’ve never heard of: the Hard Hat Riot.

It brought a tear to my eye, *sniff*–and it’s not just the tear gas this time.

And speaking of sentimental favorites, call your Mom.

  1. In law schoolwe dealt with Kent State in Constitutional Law. It was surprising to me how little sympathy the students at Kent State were receiving. (Note – this was 1994). If I had actually given my true opinion it would have been “The Ohio National Guard should have placed mortar rounds behind the student protestors and fired to drive them into the mortar rounds.”

    Fuck the whiny part of the baby-boom. Yes I know and have cousins that are baby-boomers, but they aren’t the temper-tantrum screaming baby-boomers. Those spoiled brats can go off themselves for all I care. ‘Waaaahhhhhaaaaa! Things aren’t perfect! I hate mommy and daddy because everything isn’t a magic carpet ride down a royal road to perfection! Waaaahaaaaa!’

    That type of squalling infant boomer can be sealed into a perforated 55 gallon drum and dropped in Lake Superior – cats, artists markets, badly hit.

  2. And I had worked at a park and campground, and knew how hard it was to keep everything clean and functional without a petulant group of brats moving around trying to make everything awful. It is hard enough to keep a public lavatory and shower clean without a kid crapping on the floor (caught that one and had him clean it up).

    It takes a lot of work to keep up a civilization where a three-year-old can can blow bubbles and play on a slide. And if some hippy breaker manure-skulls have to die so that civilization can be kept, if a bunch of Jihadis have to die so that my nieces can play with their barbies and disney princesses and watch ‘Max and Ruby’ – then those people can just die. They are beyond the pale – they are beyond the palings – outside of the bounds of civilized society.

    My nieces outweigh any number of jihadis or hippies. Period. Full stop.
