Happy Pi Day — 3.1415…

The number π is a mathematical constant, the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, commonly approximated as 3.14159. It is an irrational number that cannot be expressed exactly as a common fraction, although fractions such as 22/7 and other rational numbers are commonly used to approximate π. Consequently its decimal representation never ends…

Big government is a crime

Editorial at the Washington Examiner: [Governments everywhere have] been using police powers more aggressively for minor matters that have more to do with raising money than preserving the public order. The city, DOJ noted, “budgets for sizable increases in municipal fines and fees each year, exhorts police and court staff to deliver those revenue increases,…

McCain might face a primary challenger

Two of them considering challenging McCain in 2016, both conservatives. Long story at Breitbart. The possible challengers are Arizona State Sen. Kelli Ward, a physician, and Republican Congressman Matt Salmon. Both are reliable conservatives. I’m giddy just thinking it’s a serious possibility.

Hillary Dillary Dock

John Hinderaker: My fear is that this is all happening too soon, and there is plenty of time for the Democrats to ditch Hillary and substitute a better candidate. The Democrats don’t seem to have any better candidates. Fauxcahontas? I don’t know how well she’d do outside of Massachusetts. She might not do so well…

The fruits of socialism

The Left’s Mess in Venezuela. If you’re the dictator of a South American Socialist Utopia you become the darling of the dumbbells in Hollywood, the American “progressive” political class most of which owe their riches to free-market capitalism, and miscellaneous other well-off American Intellectuals, i.e., crackpots and dumbasses. But if you are an ordinary Venezuelan…

The Clintons reside in the body politic like a herpes virus

Kevin D. Williamson, from his piece today in National Review Online, Can we finally — finally! — be done with the Clintons?: The Clintons are creeps and liars and scoundrels and misfits, always have been, always will be. They are the penicillin-resistant syphilis of American politics. It’s easy to enforce the law on people who…
