War on Pets
(Laura Ingraham tweeted): THIS IS A BIG DEAL? Your reaction pls... "GoDaddy Super Bowl 2015 TV Spot, 'Journey Home'" http://ispot.tv/a/7XXf
My reaction: Yes, it's a big deal that the Humane Society are demanding total, monopolistic control over all domestic animals in order to allow Wayne Pacelle to keep his evil promise to the pet haters: "One more generation and they (dogs, cats, horses) are out," and, according to The Bond, he wants us all to be herded into slums where we can "learn to bond with rats and roaches" who will accelerate the "progress" toward plague. Is the extinction of cats and dogs unimaginable? So was the extinction of passenger pigeons--a nuisance species, once. What I'm seeing at lis.virginia.gov convinces me that people who like animals need to oppose the Humane Society vigorously. Backlash while we can!
Ben Carson Twittered: "Remember that it is impossible to be free if you are not brave!"
...that taxi drivers put themselves at greater risk than police officers?
Well, I Smiled...

Smog in one of the countries that are allegedly behind the demand that the U,S. outlaw wood stoves:
So far my corner of the world is sunny, snow-free, and cold...in New England it's a different story...
(Why am I getting this news from the BBC first? How many readers in D.C. and northward are offline today?)
Has Don Mashak really been censored, or is he reporting a glitch as censorship in order to attract support from free-speech types? (Remember the "Bush is a male" Notepad glitch?) Let's find out.
John McCain, certainly not a right-winger, salutes school choice:
The Cato Institute explains the theory:
I don't think Sarah Palin is even willing to work with a national party on a national campaign, but if you still think of the Democrats as the party that's supportive of women, check out Lloyd Marcus's testimony:
Rand Paul's geek squad are circulating the word about his popular yet controversial bill: "Sen. Rand Paul re-introduces the "Audit the Fed" bill that would expose policy decisions to a Congressional audit - Reuters" and similar. (Retweeted.)
Ted Cruz Tweeted "kudos to FLOTUS" for refusing to wear a head scarf in Saudi Arabia. Meh. As shown at the Yahoo News story, men wear them; male relatives who were there in the Gulf War said a scarf can be useful in that climate. If I'd gone there on such a formal occasion I would definitely have wanted a head scarf. But Mrs. Obama would have more up-to-date information about these things, and if Saudi women felt supported by the First Lady's gesture, good for her.
Delegates Kilgore and O'Quinn have been Twittering about the E.P.A.'s war on coal-burning power plants...it's hard to copy anything on this computer, and I've not tried, but I retweeted a few of their bons mots on this subject. They might agree with the e-friends about whom I just posted here:
"Some e-friends are calling this the most important bill of the season: http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?151+ful+SB1442".
