Also, ask yourself this: how safe do you feel, protected by the sort of people who want to prosecute someone for dissing them on Facebook?

To neglect human freedom when considering costs of regulations it's to chip away at a fundamental aspect of humanity itself.

How do you stop the unstoppable killer Terminators if you’re not Sarah Conner? Google does it with a simple text file. People have noted today that Google has a special “robot.txt” file that pokes fun at stopping the Terminators. Robots.txt files are actually used to stop robots of the less threatening kind – to it’s […]

 I'm all for the idea of joyous tolerance, that I can just loathe to the depth of my being every single note of hee-haw, yee-haw, them-thar honky-tonk badonkadonk country music that's ever drifted across the airwaves, while exulting in the knowledge that I needn't impose my narrow prejudices on my fellow humans. Dominion is a far worse negative externality than any twang of a hayseed's banjo.

Later, information emerged that the SUV had the air conditioning on, water and snacks for the kids, and a 9 year-old with the younger kids.  Yet police still had to pry the door off and rush them to the hospital.

The kids in cars story involves feeling smug and superior to the person who left them. That is such a deeply satisfying feeling, the TV producers lead with it.

Seriously?! I'm even less impressed now. If Hobby Lobby really wanted to take the principled stand, they should have dropped coverage and paid the fines. This whole ruling is a non-event that doesn't change anything, and will be rendered moot by legislation as soon as the Democrats have a majority.

The Department of Health and Human Services has already developed a way to exempt religious non-profit corporations ... from the legal mandate to pay for employees’ contraception coverage [by requiring] that insurance companies themselves independently provide it to the uncovered employees.  ...  The result is that employees of religious non-profits end up with no-copay contraception coverage, exactly as if the employer were required to provide it directly, but the employers are satisfied by this ledger shuffling that they aren't being compelled to violate their most deeply held moral convictions.

And then there's this: 

The evil folks at Hobby Lobby pay their full-time employees a minimum of $14 an hour. That is nearly double the national average for minimum wage. The hourly wage for part-time employees is also $9.50.

“We are very fortunate to be able to increase hourly wages for our employees, because we know our company would not be successful without the great work they do each day in our stores across the nation,” said the CEO and founder David Green.

A full-time employee there can by their own birth control for $9 a month. Not that it matters though because Hobby Lobby covers 16 out of 20 contraceptions (never hear liberals mention that either).

Hmm, how many articles in one night do I see about the sexualization of society? http://klecu.com/blog/2014/06/sexualized-society-versus-manhood/
 
What he did not know—and of course, no one told him—was that he had a right to have his mom present. She didn't find out until after the forced confession, however, and has since filed a bunch of paperwork trying to appeal the label of "sexualized minor."

(The other child who had instructed Lopez to pull his pants down had given the boy no choice, by the way: He had told him that he would pull Lopez's pants down for him if he did not obey.)

The Dysart Unified School District insists that it was simply following standard procedures in the case of "indecent exposure," which is why at this point I must recommend everyone read Philip Howard's new book, "The Rule of Nobody." It talks about how we got to the point where officials believe they truly must follow protocol, even when they know it makes no sense, because this is only "fair." That's the outlook that has given us zero tolerance, three strikes and you're out, and mandatory minimum laws, as well as principals who think their only recourse when a five-year-old pulls down his pants is to label him a sexual deviant. Why is there no official form for labelling someone a "protocol fetishist?"

I bought a certified Camry from AutoNation, and it was a very smooth process. The final price was reasonable, and I was treated well through the process.

We had the best service here I've ever had at a Wendy's - and perhaps the best at any fast food restaurant - the Sunday after July 4th. The young lady at the counter was friendly and engaging, recommended good menu items, and even described the dressing that comes on the chicken wrap for me. She must be attending culinary school, or something. The service was also very quick and the food was done well.

We had the Korma and Teeka, with a spinach dish (don't remember the name now). All were very good, though a little more mild than I expected. The seasoned rice with raisins and almonds was also great. We went on a Friday night and they said they recommend making reservations, though we didn't have much of a wait.

This is our favorite Chinese takeout in the area. The dining area is pretty spartan but always clean. I think they cater mostly to takeout anyway. Our favorite items are the spring rolls, pot stickers, honey chicken, and sesame chicken. The entree fried rice and noodle dishes are very flavorful as well. We tried the Hunan beef last week and it is pleasantly spicy without leaving too much of a burn in your mouth. The people are nice and based on their accents I'd say they are first generation, so you know the food is done well. The service is pretty quick, but they can get busy. The prices are really good, too! Most entrees are $8-$10
