Yet another reason to stay the hell outta New Jersey.
A New Jersey comic isn't laughing after a bit part in a low budget movie backfired, and saw him charged with weapons violations for packing a replica gun during a scene.

Pollution is fine, as long as it's Barack Obama's EPA doing the polluting.
We have covered the Gold King Mine environmental disaster here, here, here and here. Briefly, the EPA and its contractor spilled three million gallons of toxic liquid contaminated with lead, arseni…

Barack Obama's utter spinelessness may lead directly to war between NATO and Russia.
By letting Putin get away with whatever he likes in Syria, Obama has created a deeply dangerous situation.

The moderates are leaving the region and heading to Europe, where continuing to be a moderate might still be possible.

All right, +Inbox by Gmail, why the hell does the Inbox page hang on OS X 10.9 with Safari? Until a couple of days ago, it worked well enough, then search quit working, then showing messages hung, and now it hangs with the loading icon in the bottom left right after displaying the list of messages. I have to go back to Gmail to actually do anything.

And no, I won't use Chrome as my browser unless and until it actually follows the OS X user interface guidelines.

My wife has a Mac and uses Firefox all the time - no issues. She also uses Chrome sometimes.

RedState's Leon Wolf argues that despite the schlonging she got from Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton won last night - because she will win the nomination, as Sanders can't get past Super Tuesday, and Trump will win the nomination because the rest of the field is too fractured...and the only one she can beat is Trump.
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES This is not one of those stupid, contrarian takes where I’m saying something just for shock value just to get clicks. Make no mistakes – Hillary Clinton may have lost by about 20 points last night, but she emerged from New Hampshire as the biggest winner of the night, and it was not close. Let’s make one thing clear: | Read More »

"that it makes no practical sense, and is not conservative, to send people home when they want to be here and participate as productive members of society."

Upholding the rule of law is a deeply conservative principle.

"since they are not committing any crimes,"

You are splitting a legal hair. They are breaking the law, by your own admission.

"they should have the same opportunity to apply for permanent residence and citizenship as any other immigrant."

Sure, once they go home and apply as any other immigrant.

"You keep -- again, falsely -- holding up the fact that the law is being broken as though it is very important,"

Because it is. To do otherwise is to destroy the rule of law.

"You're pretending that they committed some serious offense against the law, and I've proven that you are wrong."

By your own admission, they are breaking the law. That is enough. Breaking the law must have consequences.

And with that, since I'm sure you'll reply to this, I'll perforce let you have the final word. This discussion is getting nowhere and will never get anywhere. You are determined to argue that they should be granted amnesty for their lawbreaking (and yes, granting something for which they are not eligible is amnesty), and I will never accept that argument. Think of me what you will. I'm done arguing with you.

The science is settled, eh, climatistas? Well, then, why should we keep paying for more of it?

Maybe the science won't be as settled once the Big Government gravy train stops.
Because the science is settled there is no need for more basic research, the government says

Australia is currently run by a bunch of fucking morons, so it makes sense that they'd fire a bunch of scientists.

+Jay Maynard​ if money could buy elections, Trump will win for sure.  I've heard he's very, very rich.

All right, give Rubio credit for this one. When he was Speaker of the Florida House, he voluntarily gave up some of his power. That's rare in a politician.

The EPA's contempt for the regulatory process in the past may well have led to the Supreme Court's putting the current rules on hold until they could be litigated. If so, good for the Court.

And if the ruling scuppers the Paris agreements, so much the better.
The Supreme Court’s stay of Obama’s “Clean Power Plan” yesterday is fairly unusual. But it may have come about because the EPA essentially dared the judiciary to stop it. Jo…

Uh, no. "In sum: The Democratic government of a Democratic city destroys that city’s finances so thoroughly that it must go into state receivership; a Democratic emergency manager signs off on a consensus plan to use a temporary water source; the municipal authorities in that Democratic city responsible for treating and monitoring drinking water fail to do their job; a state agency whose employees work under the tender attention of SEIU Local 517 fails to do its job overseeing the local authorities; Barack Obama’s EPA, having been informed about the issue, keeps mum."

The Electoral College was designed to stop the rise of the merely popular, like Trump.
And the Founders never envisioned government takeover of private property and capital like Sanders's socialism calls for.

But to be popular enough to take the Presidency despite the Electoral College system, a candidate needs broad-based support.  The idea was to prevent large blocks of people with a particular set of interest (a single large state, or states in a particular region) from electing candidates over the active opposition of other blocks/states/regions.

Hillary Clinton's not even an honest politician. She doesn't stay bought. Just ask the Koch Brothers.
Top Democratic politicians and committees have taken tens of thousands in contributions from individuals who work at firms that lobby on behalf of Koch Industries, despite railing against Koch’s influence for years, according to campaign finance filings.

I agree with John Hinderaker: Donald Trump has made our political discourse dumber.
Yesterday, at a rally in Manchester, Donald Trump called Ted Cruz a “pussy.” He was cute about it as usual, attributing the line to someone in the crowd. Here’s the video: [jwplay…

That's because Barack Obama snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

A very nice, well-kept indoor pistol range. The people are knowledgeable, the range clean and safe. Definitely worth the trip.
