Those who advocate full disclosure of all campaign-related contributions should stop to consider the results of attacks on donors to campaigns that turned out to be politically incorrect years later. I bet Brendan Eich would argue forcefully against such disclosure. He'd be right, too.

Full disclosure used to be a good idea to counterbalance contributions...but the zealots and bullies have ruined it.
Disclosure of political contributors leads to witch hunts.

If Rice was a liberal, the treatment she's getting would produce howls of complaint about raaaaacism!!!. But she's a conservative, and it's acceptable to hate her.

The most surprising thing about this article is that the notoriously left-wing University of Minnesota has refused to back down from its invitation for her to speak.
If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility to her. Rice’s speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the Internet company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her...

How in the name of Sam Hill did I miss this??!

An alternative history where Texas never joins the US, and a story where fewer major characters are inventions of author L. Neil Smith than are imported from our timeline. I'm four chapters in, and this is going to eat my time until I'm done...

Damn, I just scared myself. I had Google Maps map my route to #Penguicon , and at the end, noted that it had me continue on 696 past M-10 and come in the back way, and thought, "Damn, I was expecting M-10..."

I know far too much about driving around Detroit for someone who gets there once a year.

Maybe because the big parking lot is off Civic Center Dr., in "back" of the hotel?

Dammit, G+  needs a +100 button.
 
On Revise the Second Amendment

Well, if we're going to that, let's do it right. I like what was suggested in The Road to Damascus by John Ringo and Linda Evans:

The right of the people to keep and bear arms for self-defense and defense of the homeland shall never be infringed, limited, rescinded, interfered with, or prohibited by any decree of law, decision by court, or policy by executive branch or any of its agencies, And this time, we mean it. (Pages 152-153)

Perhaps it also needs a "so there" but this would do. This would do.

Don't be fooled by the Democrats' spin. It's all about targeting Tea Party groups and other conservatives.

Richard Nixon was impeached, in part, for trying to use the IRS against his political enemies. Barack Obama did use the IRS. The conclusion is obvious.
Earlier today, Judicial Watch made public a batch of documents that it received from the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. The documents consist of a series of emails relatin...

I generally avoid KFC, as I find it too greasy...but I'm going to have to find one of these just as a #BloodmouthCarnist  statement.
KFC is bringing back the Double Down, a bacon and cheese sandwich that uses two fried chicken filets as a bun.

Hinderaker's got this one exactly right:

Here in the U.S., retreat from the world is the order of the day. Unfortunately, the world may not choose to cooperate. If there is a nation in which war is all too interested, it is ours.
I am no fan of Trotsky, but he was right about one thing: "You may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you." Many Americans seem to think that they can swear off foreign policy, but ...

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