Evil

China has finally admitted that it has been doing a great evil. After years of denial, China has acknowledged that many of the human organs used in transplants here are taken from executed prisoners and that many of the recipients are foreigners who pay hefty sums to avoid a long wait. Speaking at a conference […]

RIP Jeffrey "Toz" Toczylowski

Friday's Los Angeles Times had a great article on Army Special Forces Capt. Jeffrey "Toz" Toczylowski -- a soldier who died in Iraq on Nov. 4, 2005. His dying wish was a $100k party for his friends and family in Las Vegas. The article is heartwarming and you can really see what kind of man […]

Not buying it

William Powers of the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government writes that the press is excited by the new Democrat Congress because Democrats are just more "fun" to cover than Republicans. Whatever. Reading Powers' piece is like listening to some nut describe the space aliens […]

I thought Supreme Court justices were smart

Even the usually wrong Supreme Court judges are very intelligent -- all the better to cloak their legislation in judicial robes -- but retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor doesn't appear to be the sharpest tool in the shed. WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Cookies mailed to the U.S. Supreme Court last year contained enough rat poison to […]

Who's being petty now?

When I saw this come over the wires yesterday, I just had to let out an audible sigh. Why? Because, through ignorance or bias, the Associated Press is carrying water for the Democrats. (AP) -- The Bush administration, trying to push through judicial nominations before Republicans lose control of the Senate, resubmitted six nominees, including […]

Getting while the getting's good

Arkansas' outgoing Governor Mike Huckabee has got some serious chutzpah. You see, Arkansas law rightly prohibits public servants from getting gifts valued at more than $100 with certain exceptions. “Items costing more than $100 which are given to public servants to show appreciation for their efforts (i.e., to reward them for doing their job) or […]

The cost to "solve" global warming

London's Telegraph has posted an article by Christopher Monckton on the economic costs of slowing global warming and exactly what benefit you'll get for them. Sadly, the answers are "tons of money" and "not much at all." [Click on the print version of the story -- the regular html version has apparently lost the third […]

This is classic

Uniform manufacturer Cintas has started checking its workers' Social Security numbers against the federal government's database and is now laying off workers whose numbers are coming up invalid -- an indicator that they're not allowed to work in the United States. One of the workers complained about the move to the press. Cintas has notified […]

Andrew Sullivan's "conservatism" again

For those of you who are interested in Andrew Sullivan's brand of "conservatism," National Review's Jonah Goldberg reviews Sullivan's latest book. *UPDATE* Sullivan has responded here. There's one response that Sullivan makes to Goldberg's review that I'd like to highlight. Sullivan quotes page 120 of his book: To equate the astonishing rise of evangelical and […]

Taped The Argument earlier today, fumbled through some closing remarks; this from @michaelbd is the more eloquent version of what I tried to say:

For some amount of time today, the CA DOJ's new data website leaked name and addresses of people with CCW permits.

Someone PM'd me with video evidence of it (can't share to protect confidential info).

Here is a reddit thread with discussion. https://www.reddit.com/r/CAguns/comments/vm723i/attorney_general_bonta_releases_new_firearms_data?sort=confidence
