Five items to remind us that humans are stupid and weak...
5. The legal thinking behind California's lawsuit against six car companies makes "no sense whatever," according to Overlawyered. Bill Lockyer, CA's attorney general, considers the cars are a nuisance, legally speaking, because of greenhouse gas emissions. Professor Bainbridge describes Lockyer's suit as an "abuse of power."
4. There are many amusing lawsuits discussed at Overlawyered right now: A criminal who fell through a skylight while thieving won a lucrative award, Minnesota court rules traffic-cam ticketing is unlawful, Wal-Mart is being sued for CD album lyrics, deaf people are suing to get Redskins games closed captioned.
3. Arizona's official 9/11 memorial made my jaw fall onto the pavement. It took 37 minutes to reset the jaw and begin breathing normally again. In a nutshell, stupid fucking liberals who feel responsible for terrorism, and for making it worse, have hijacked the memorial.
The memorial actually includes the text, if you can believe it, "You don't win battles of terrorism with more battles." This is true to the left-wing ideology -- never, ever fight back or show even a sliver of aggression even when you're attacked. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is as dumb as it gets. Cowardly, too.
I don't belong to any political party, religion, or any other club, group, or ideology (I do lean libertarian), but I am ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, 110% anti-liberal.
2. The Pope has invited Muslim leaders to a meeting tomorrow. Why? Why appease the barbarians? Hell, as an atheist, I'd even consider Catholicism if Pope Ben would stand up, show some backbone, and call a spade a spade. Something like, "You are violent, stone-age bastards, now fuck off," should suffice. Reuters.
1. CAIR is calling for "dialogue over Pope's comments." There's no need. Islam is violent, and everyone on earth knows it. End of story. How many bombings and beheadings do we have to have before we get leadership strong enough to speak the truth publicly?
