WELCOME TO THE RIGHTLY GUIDED:

Just a motley assortment of the kind of things Alzheimer’s is good for.

Starting with a look back to last Summer…

Chipotle says they won’t be buying any beef from Texas. They’ll ship it in 8,000 miles from Australia instead, to save the planet.  Hop on over and try one.

Some wise guy/gal/confused tried to photoshop a recent photo Lena Dunham posted of herself naked because she can’t get enough. We fetched the original, as a service to our readers. Enjoy.

Only 6 more days of official mandatory governmental celebrations of sexual perversions – and all the wrong kinds – left until UnProud.

Truly sad and tragic news from Pakistan as a local mosque directed locals to the scene of an overturned tanker truck, leaking petrol.  The people raced to collect free gas from the scene. Then a horrible (but inevitable) fire bomb exploded, killing at least 150 people who…

The Sacred Oath

The Kakistocracy

Borrowing from the attributed Ben Franklin quip on democracy, I once observed that:

Liberalism is two jews and a black voting on who to have for lunch; Conservatism is a well-armed white enforcing the result.

In hindsight I should have qualified that this was mockery rather than edict, as it has been fully embraced on both sides of the political aisle.

Probably the primary means by which conservatives corner themselves into enforcing liberalism is by their religious devotion to the Constitution. Like most of our contemporary social quirks, this will one day be the source of many puzzled chin-strokes by Chinese historians. Because the Constitution is simply a government charter, and nothing else whatsoever. Rather than a poetic statement of purpose, people, or ambition, it is merely a broad (and broadly ignored) template for restrictions and responsibilities of various federal institutions. That something so utterly mundane would inspire impassioned allegiance…

Fact and Opinion

LEGITIMATE CITIZEN

In case you’re wondering, any idiot can have a blog. Many idiots do.

There’s no competency exam which must be passed. No minimum spelling or grammar skills which must be demonstrated. As can be seen by current affairs in the United States, one need not have even the barest grasp of law, or religion, or physics (or any science, really); and no blog author is required to tell the truth.

Many a damned, self-deluded fool sits down to their keyboard to proclaim their expert status to their readers every single day. And, if they’re in the U.S., their right to express themselves is protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution. The Constitution, however, doesn’t absolve you of the responsibility to determine the truth of any statement for yourself. Someone may feel passionately about anything, but their passion doesn’t have to be taken for truth. Nor should it be. It’s an…

NC mega jobs site prospect: FoxConn, Chinese iPhone assembler, Reuters reports

Chinese smartphone assembler Foxconn could be the first company to benefit from a proposed North Carolina incentive program for massive job creation.

N.C. House Speaker Tim Moore said Thursday the state is on the cusp of landing a major industry that would employ 8,600 people in one facility. Moore made his remarks Thursday, after the state legislature approved a new corporate incentive within the state budget sent to Gov. Roy Cooper.

The incentive is designed for a company that invests more than $4 billion and creates at least 5,000 jobs in the state. Such a company would qualify for a refund of its tax bill for up to 25 years. Current law allows up to 20 years, but the most the state has awarded is 12 years.
