Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

No real surprise, the 17th richest member of Congress, Rep. Alan Grayson (Demonrat, of course), has decided that the taxpayers should support his wife and children.  His “logic” (such as it is for progs) is that, after twenty-nine years of marriage, he discovered that his wife was never divorced from her first husband, so the marriage is illegitimate.

That’s rich even for a prog.  First of all, “everyone who marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery” (Luke 16:18b) , so you have no leg to stand on there anyway.

Second, don’t progs believe that people should be allowed to marry anyone they love?  So what difference does it make that she was already married?  By prog “logic”, shouldn’t one still be allowed to marry ANYONE?

No morals.  No responsibility.  That’s the prog way.

So it appears that there is another school shooting. It just so happens that it is in the Seattle, Washington area. Another kid gone wrong. Sorry but all I have so far is this CNN report so don’t put too much stock in it as of yet. I’m sure more will come available with time as to the why.

And while this is starting to unfold, along comes another report so fresh, all I could find was this. Seems that some radical male and female x-panics have shot 3 policeman in Sacramento. What in the hell is going on with these lefties? Are they producing disgruntled citizens or what? And why are cops the sought after target all of a sudden? Strange.

Woes In NYC

Seems that a great humanitarian doctor has caused just a little stir in NYC. A “doctor without borders” ( sounds like a tree huger without common sense) has come back after a month of aiding Ebola victims in West Africa. And he self monitored right up to the point of 103 degree temperature. Too bad he didn’t self quarantine instead. Yet to see how this will turn out and what fellow NYers REALLY feel about him. Oh, and the Dem parrot governor and the Dem parrot mayor say there is nothing to worry about and that everything is under control. Right!

Under control would be this Islamic psycho from California (another liberal state transplant) who decides to attack police with a hatchet. Recent convert to Islam? Of course, but we won’t mention that. This rides on the heels of another whacko Islam convert in Canada who tried to kill members of their parliament. I don’t know how much Canadians like their members of Parliament but I wish these lefty or Islamic terrorists would do us a favor and at least take out some of the US parliament members. Two birds with one stone as it were. We do these guys want to do harm to civilians who have no control over affairs that bring anger to terrorists? I don’t get it.

Great line from Forrest Gump. Now here‘s a bit of stupidity to chew on — “Smarter people are no better off”.

You heard that right. Check out the “logic”:

On the surface, Zagorsky’s analysis confirms the findings of previous studies linking higher intelligence with higher income. “Each point increase in IQ test scores is associated with $202 to $616 more income per year,” he says. For example, a person with a score of 130 (in the top 2%, in terms of IQ) might earn about $12,000 more per year than someone with an average IQ score of about 100.

On the surface, people with higher intelligence scores also had greater wealth. The median net worth for people with an IQ of 120 was almost $128,000 compared with $58,000 for those with an IQ of 100.

But when Zagorsky controlled for other factors – such as divorce, years spent in school, type of work and inheritance – he found no link between IQ and net worth. In fact, people with a slightly above-average IQ of 105 , had an average net worth higher than those who were just a bit smarter, with a score of 110.

People who had divorced once had about $9600 less wealth on average than their never-divorced counterparts. And those who smoked heavily had an $11,000 reduction in net worth. These external factors – rather than IQ – could explain the differences in wealth, Zagorsky suggests.

Let’s see…

  • Choose to stay in school… learn useful skills… choose a good career… earn more money!
  • Choose spouse more wisely… less likely to divorce… less likely to have to support two households and two divorce lawyers… keep more money!
  • Choose not to smoke…  don’t spend $5 per day on cigarettes…  save extra $1825 per year…  that $11,000 comes in just six years!

So the reason smart people are better off is not because they are smart, but because they do less stupid shit.

Does it never occur to these “researchers” that smart people stay in school longer because that’s what they are good at?  Does it never occur to them that smart people choose more lucrative careers because they can, and stupid people can’t?  Does is never occur to them that smart people choose their spouses more wisely because they have the intellectual capacity to make better choices?  Does it never occur to them that smart people save more because they have more self-control?

Apparently, the researchers are too stupid to figure out that smart people do less stupid shit because they are not stupid shits.

At the Worth Youth Chess Championships in Durban, South Africa, our pride of Virginia, Jennifer Yu, won the GOLD MEDAL in the 12G division (girls 12 and under). A little further down the page, you will will see Akshita Gorti, also of Virginia, in 12th place.

And our own Aasa Dommalapati took 14th place in the 10G division.

Doing Virginia proud, girls! Congratulations!

So, the Калифорния legislature passed a bill restricting government surveillance with drones. Gov. “Moonbeam” Brown vetoed it.

Check out the stupidity:

Brown said in a statement that the bill appears to be too narrow and could go beyond what the state and federal constitutions would prohibit.

“There are undoubtedly circumstances where a warrant is appropriate,” he wrote. “The bill’s exceptions, however, appear to be too narrow and could impose requirements beyond what is required by either the 4th Amendment or the privacy provisions in the California Constitution.”

Uh, Guvn’r, if the bill didn’t put tighter restrictions on your misuse of drones than the U.S. and Калифорния Constitutions require, there would be NO DAMNED POINT TO THE BILL AT ALL.

You can read all that happy horsecrap where he was the best; how he changed everything for the better; how transparent and truthful and trusting and unbiased he was. Read this as a starter and then read any other articles you want. I personally lived it. I hope the guy never gets another job that can hurt the American citizens. I also hope that he is indicted for crimes of corruption, abuse of power, violation of the Constitution, lying and just being a nasty, mean spirited, racist individual. I also hope I win the lottery and, as with this, know how that will turn out. Best that can happen is there is no AG approved before the mid-term elections or we will end up with more corruption and destruction.
