    The U.S. Supreme Court will issue one or more decisions today at 10am ET. The justices still have major opinions to release on Obamacare, gay marriage, death penalty drugs, EPA regulatory power, and more.

  • "Just one week after nine people were gunned down at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal in Charleston, worshippers returned to the historic black church to pick up where the victims left off."
  • A second prison employee has been arrested in connection with the escape of two inmates from the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York. Prison guard Gene Palmer is accused of providing power tools to the inmates.
  • Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev gave a statement yesterday apologizing for his actions. "If there is any lingering doubt, let there be no more. I did it, along with my brother," Tsarnaev said.

  1. “The Feds Asked Me to Rat Out Commenters.”

    AND YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED NEXT.

    1. Hello.

      How rude! I’m reading Nick’s piece.

    2. WE FOUGHT THE GAG ORDER USING THIS ONE WEIRD TRICK!

      1. How this little boy fought a gag order will bring you to tears

      2. This little boy’s response to a gag order will make you stand up and cheer!

    3. One of the commenters had literally posted thousands of comments at Reason.com, from which it is clear that he (assuming it is a he) is not exactly a threat to anyone other than common decency.

      🙂

      1. “…it is clear that he (assuming it is a he) is not exactly a threat to anyone other than common decency.”

        Et tu, Nick?

        Sorry for repeat comment. I am just getting a little tired of this meme. We get it already. Commenters here are rood, crood, and misunderstood.

        1. And jerks, don’t forget we’re all jerks. According to Postrel, anyway.

          1. At least Ken White at Popehat offered to make amends for disparaging the commentariat.

            Fruit baskets for some, cockpunches for others!

          2. I thought we were impolite.

            1. We are impolitic, which is a far greater sin for the cocktail circuit.

        2. I am just getting a little tired of this meme

          I shared it because I think it is funny. There is also the possibility that he is trolling you commenters, and laughing about it when you all complain.

        3. I thought it was “Rude, Crude, Lewd, with a Bad Attitude”

          We should form a Biker Gang!

      2. What’s with Nick’s ‘questionable taste’ shit?

        Who died and left him curator of this cabal of creeps?

        1. I mis-read that at first as “questionable taste shirt” and I thought for a second you were referring to The Jacket. The Jacket is always in good taste.

    4. You know, after hearing writer after writer say “Bonjour, scum” to the Hit & Run commenters, I feel it necessary to respond. There are a great many of us who are successful professionals, who, in our personal lives, are civil, respectable, and live without much conflict of any kind with our fellow man. The fact that some of us vent and make outrageous remarks in a quasi-pseudo-anonymous manner doesn’t really say much about the people doing the commenting, nor does ignoring all of the serious comments, some by people far more expert on topics than the writers who post the article being commented on, seem fair or appropriate.

      While I’m not one to make jokes about doing violence, except maybe occasionally suggesting that we bring back tarring and feathering, it’s obvious hyperbole, intended and understood as such. Just because it comes across as incredibly offensive in a newspaper article or when heard in real life, it doesn’t make it something that has to be deplored along with a shot at all of the commenters here every time it’s mentioned. I think the more appropriate response is to laugh it off as people blowing off steam and their frustrations with an out-of-control government and to note that plenty (though not a majority) of the commentary is serious, erudite, and worth plowing through some of the horseplay to read. . . .

      1. . . .Frankly, most of the criticism seems to come from people who write for a living. I think that makes whatever you write take on more importance–it’s your profession on display to the world–and creates a perspective that everything written in public has to be taken seriously. That makes it harder for you to understand just how commenters can act with such disregard to common decency at times, but it’s almost all blowing off steam and venting frustrations in a forum of libertarians–something that’s near impossible to find anywhere else.

        In any case, I’m glad that Reason and team are fighting back, and I look forward to many more articles highlighting these sorts of abuses.

        1. ^This^

  2. Not quite a shameless plug today.

    ‘Not quite’ because it’s not a plug per se, it’s still blatantly shameless advertising.

    We have a teaser version of the cover for my next book available At the artist’s DeviantArt page. The main inspiration was the style of the classic Pulp SF covers.

    While we were working on the cover it spawned a joke based off of the concept of “Hero menaced by robot”. Only this time, the robot was a roomba.

    Warning: some of his other art might be not safe for work depending on your workplace. The cover and the joke are perfectly safe.

    1. Love it! very nice

      1. Thank you (I supplies the ideas, he provided the pixels)

        With any luck, it will sell books.

    2. Grantland has decided to try to become a bigger player in grievance mongering ? starting with being offended by Seth Macfarlane:

      http://grantland.com/features/…..rage-bear/

      How’s this for contributing to the ultimate PUSSIFICATION of America:

      You never expect a movie to hurt you. Disappoint? Dismay? Depress? Fine. But when a movie has a field day asserting the humanity of a fake toy bear at the expense of your own, it hurts.

      Goddamn! IT’s not like it matters if the movie is funny or not, right? No, what matters is Seth Macfarlane’s fucking politics:

      MacFarlane would seem to identify as progressive, but he uses his liberalness conservatively, to berate what he thinks is normal or safe or established in American culture. His tolerance is tinged with intolerance.

      Liberalism is eating itself. Makes me kinda want to go see that movie?

      1. Makes me kinda want to go see that movie?

        No.

        Even if the Libertarian Moment squirted out of Seth Macfarlane’s ass, I would not go see this moment because I saw the first one.

        1. movie.

          1. I won’t see if because so far the creator has failed to make anything I found entertaining.

      2. okay… what does that have to do with the cover?

        1. Is it covered with black men’s semen?

          1. That doesn’t even make sense.

            And I don’t have much patience for purile fools today.

            1. You didn’t read the Seth M link? That is the joke that the article writer seemed to feel was the complete death of humanity.

              No need to be thin skinned. It’s not like you’ve never posted here before.

              1. I did not read the link about the perpetually unfunny man.

                I’m just in a bad mood today because crap at work is going especially bad.

                1. Must not be too bad. Looks like you’re getting paid to fuck around on the internet.

                  1. Piss off, it’s called multitasking. You’re on a phone call with incpid people on one side, typing bile on the other.

                    1. Also, even if one accepts the false premise that visitng H&R must take time away from work “Bad” and “Busy” are not synonyms.

      3. I’m glad I’ll be dead in two generations when these epicene losers get fucking steamrolled by Russia and China

        1. Steamrolled? Is that what they call a ticker tape parade now?

      4. Haven’t seen the movie but that review on Grantland was so derp-dense it might as well have been depleted uranium.

      5. The author won a Pulitzer in 2012 and now he is ranting about Cam Newton’s ejaculate.

      6. “It’s tricky. MacFarlane would seem to identify as progressive, but he uses his liberalness conservatively, to berate what he thinks is normal or safe or established in American culture. His tolerance is tinged with intolerance. In Ted 2, Michael Dorn and Patrick Warburton play a brutally masculine, interracial gay couple. Dorn played Lieutenant Worf on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Warburton, among other characters, played a live-action TV superhero called the Tick. Here they show up at New York Comic Con in their respective costumes and lay waste to nerds. At that moment, the gag moves from their being absurdist gays (“We’re gonna tie our dicks together”) to their being bullies irrespective of their gayness. Where precisely the joke is depends on what you find funny at either extreme.”

        So in other words, Seth MacFarlane chooses to make jokes about subjects leftist puritans say ought not be joked about. If anything, this makes me like Macfarlane more, given that I’ve hated him up until now.

        I think it’s hilarious that he argues MacFarlane uses his liberalness conservatively, which actually seems to be the opposite of what he’s doing. The people using liberalness conservatively are those declaring entire fields of comedy off limits because they offend the progressive movement, which is now basically an establishment movement that controls the universities and a large portion of our government.

        The progressives are the conservatives.

        1. MacFarlene is the guy who has his characters time travel back to Nazi Germany just so he can make a ‘Republicans=Nazis’ joke. You have to be delusional to think MacFarlane ‘uses his liberalness conservatively’.

      7. Translated from Media Fop-ese:

        At that moment, the gag moves from their being absurdist gays (“We’re gonna tie our dicks together”) to their being bullies irrespective of their gayness. Where precisely the joke is depends on what you find funny at either extreme. whether MacFarlane is mocking white cis-hetero shitlords and/or Bible Belt conservakins, who are the only acceptable comedic targets.

    3. We have a teaser version of the cover for my next book available At the artist’s DeviantArt page. The main inspiration was the style of the classic Pulp SF covers.

      I like it. But I prefer the Gun Nun. Maybe the dude on the cover would too. She can use prayers to survive without a suit.

      1. But she’s not in the book!

    4. Like the cover, UnCiv.

      1. Thanks.

        Think people will buy the book?

  3. 66) After we’ve removed the Confederate flags and symbols from state houses and license plates, how long will it be until we ban their display altogether, even by private citizens? Think I’m being hyperbolic? Not in the least. I honestly think we’re about five years away from book burnings of anything that mentions the Confederacy, Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, etc., in even the most vaguely positive way.

    1. Try this:

      http://www.slate.com/blogs/the…..t_too.html

      1. It’s not just the second they are after. It’s also the first amendment.

        1. A thousand times, this. One is there to protect the other and they want to get rid of them all…

    2. I’m gonna invoke the ‘Smoking-ban Slippery Slope’ theory here.

      Give them an inch. They will take it all.

      1. Give them an inch. They will take it all.

        Disgusting.

        1. STEVE SMITH GIVE THEM FOURTEEN INCHES.

      2. I don’t know about your experience, but…

      3. “Give them an inch. They will take it all.”

        Go on….

      4. bow-chika-bow

        1. You people are immature.

          1. THE INTERNET IS NO PLACE TO BE CRASS!!!

      5. Give them an inch. They will take it all.

        Gagged on gag orders.

      6. They only want “reasonable, common sense” laws. The odd thing is that 5 minutes after passing a reasonable common sense law they’re pushing for more – which seems to suggest that the reasonable common sense law they just passed was not reasonable and common sense enough. If they could only once give me an example of a law they would find unreasonable and beyond common sense, I might buy their protestations that they’re not lying shitbags intent on disguising their totalitarian intent.

    3. Woodrow Wilson will be erased from history books too? amiright?

      “Segregation is not humiliating, but a benefit, and ought to be so regarded by you gentlemen. If your organization goes out and tells the colored people of the country that it is a humiliation, they will so regard it, but if you do not tell them so, and regard it rather as a benefit, they will regard it the same. The only harm that will come will be if you cause them to think it is a humiliation.”

      1. comment doubleplusungood criticizes St. Woodrow revise fullwise upsub antefiling

      2. What do you mean — “you gentlemen”?!

      3. Wilson was a great President because League of Nations.

    4. Well on the positive side, it means that I’ll get to watch all the old Dukes of Hazard after they digitally erase the stars and bars from General Lee

    5. “Let the name of the Confederacy be stricken from every book and tablet, stricken from all pylons and obelisks, stricken from every monument of the United States. Let the name of the Confederacy be unheard and unspoken, erased from the memory of men for all time.”

    6. A friend of mine this morning was making a stink about them taking down a Civil War strategy game because it had the confederate flag in it. In an actual game about the civil war.

  4. “If there is any lingering doubt, let there be no more. I did it, along with my brother,” Tsarnaev said.

    There isn’t.

  5. Study ranks Tampa as America’s sweatiest city

    We’re No. 1!

    Fan company Honeywell Fans partnered with a team of scientists at an environmental consulting company to create a ranking of America’s sweatiest cities. Tampa topped the list, with our Florida neighbors Miami and Orlando making the top five. The rankings were based on how much heat is trapped in each metropolitan city.

    Dr. Ted Myatt with the consultant, Environmental Health & Engineering, said aside from obvious measures like humidity and wind speed, factors like the number of residential buildings or heavy industry can affect heat levels.

    1. Seems that a study like this should also take into account deodorant sales.

      1. It is a shame people in Tampa use deodorant when there are people going hungry!

        1. No one needs 23 choices of deodorant!

        2. Nobody NEEDS 27 different choices of deodorant!!!

          1. Damn your fast fingers, WTF!!

    2. Well it is nice to know that we’re finally known for something.

  6. The U.S. Supreme Court will issue one or more decisions today at 10am ET. The justices still have major opinions to release on Obamacare, gay marriage, death penalty drugs, EPA regulatory power, and more.

    Tune in next week, same Bat-time, same Bat-channel!

    He said: ‘Hold on a second I – OK, you know what? No no no no no. You’re in my house.’

    Um, no, asshole. It’s the people’s house. Or at least it was. Once.

      At the White House, we’re better than you!

    3. The best way to deal with a heckler is by heckling the heckler. It’d be great to see someone that has a sense of humor, and can think on their feet in that situation (in other words, someone beside the president). But no, he had to rely on that great tactic of the left, shame.

    Ha ha. Fat fuck ain’t no Duke brother. Too bad nobody punched him in the nads.

    1. Sheriff Roscoe ain’t never gonna catch up with them boys.

    2. That’s too bad…someone ought to have helped him…if they didn’t, then maybe we need to think about why police/community relations are so bad.

      I bet they’re doing some soul-searching on PoliceOne right now…ha ha, almost kept a straight face…

      1. someone ought to have helped him

        And what are the chances that if someone had helped pull him out of the car he would have been embarrassed and accused them of assaulting a police officer? It seems ridiculous, but I think we know better.

        1. *BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM*

          “I was embarr, er, I feared for my life.”

          Justified.

      2. That’s too bad…someone ought to have helped him…if they didn’t, then maybe we need to think about why police/community relations are so bad.

        I have no reason to believe that 100% of the problems with those relations don’t originate with the costumed gangsters enforcing unjust statutory law.

        1. It’s not even so much that as the fact that the police are completely lawless. Their authority comes from their law enforcement duties, so legally they have no authority over anyone unless they have reasonable suspicion that a crime has been committed. Though in practice anything they say to anyone is considered a lawful order, even if it is not, and they can use any amount of force that they feel is necessary, including deadly force, to make people comply. And nothing else happens.

          1. Their authority comes from their law enforcement duties, so legally they have no authority over anyone unless they have reasonable suspicion that a crime has been committed.

            Luckily for sociopathic power trippers the US and state statutory codes are enormous and vague. More laws than any other society has lived under in all of human history. Combine that with an extremely servile judiciary and the pyschology of your average cop, and you have roving gangs of unaccountable thugs ruining lives with the same ease that you or I post comments on Reason.

    3. Right. Help him and then Piggly Wiggly tries to seize your phone.

  11. Florida Man, 85, Arrested After Explosion Rattles Neighbors

    Authorities say Tarpon Springs residents reported a loud bang at a home early Monday morning. The Tampa regional bomb squad was called in to investigate and found a hand grenade had detonated in the home’s backyard. The blast damaged the home, shattering rear windows and breaking concrete. Police say four people inside the home were not hurt.

    Police executed a search warrant on a neighbor’s home and found military-grade explosives, including anti-personnel mines, a shotgun and a hand grenade.

    1. Florida Man should have waited until next Saturday.

    2. Oh, Florida Man, won’t you ever learn?

  12. Now General Lee toy cars from Dukes of Hazzard will be banned from having the Confederate flag on their roofs
    Warner Bros, which owns licensing rights to 80s series, said it won’t make die-cast replicas of souped-up 1969 Dodge Charger
    Ben Jones who played Cooter defended use of Confederate flag saying it represents values of courage, family and good times

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/new…..roofs.html
    That’s just wrong.

    1. “How them Duke boys gonna get outta this one?”

  13. New national Fox News poll: Jeb extends lead, Trump and Ben Carson 2nd and 3rd.

    http://www.foxnews.com/politic…..ent-bumps/

    Bush tops the list of GOP contenders with 15 percent support among Republican primary voters. That’s up from 12 percent last month and his best showing yet. Support for Trump more than doubled since his announcement and that catapults him into the top tier at 11 percent. He’s followed by retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson at 10 percent. No one else receives double-digit backing.

  14. My local government must be flush with cash:

    College tuition waiver considered for children of county staff, teachers

    Commissioner Dennis Frazier, R-District 3, introduced the proposal at a June 10 joint meeting between the commissioners and the school board as a way to attract and retain teachers in Carroll. Frazier again brought up the idea at the community college’s board of trustees meeting on June 17.

    “My idea is anyone who works for Carroll County should be able to send their kids to Carroll Community College for free. If we can start with teachers, we could eventually offer free tuition to county employees,” said Frazier, an ex-officio member of the community college board.

    Fuck this guy.

    1. “My idea is anyone who works for Carroll County should be able to send their kids to Carroll Community College for free on someone else’s paycheck. If we can start with teachers, we could eventually offer free force other people to pay for tuition to county employees,”

      1. From the FB post on this article:

        There is not a sense of entitlement to free tuition believe me – our sense of entitlement lies in the fact that our students are high performing, our teachers are high performing and our workload is ever increasing however our pay has decreased over 8 years. I have been a teacher in Carroll County for 7 years and I have seen my pay decrease because of a frozen pay scale and the rising cost of health care. We are entitled to better pay – free tuition is peanuts for a teacher who has 2 small children and a Masters Degree already.

        Fuck you too lady.

        1. Oh yeah, no sense of entitlement there at all. Fucking assholes.

        2. Right. Because it wasn’t her choice to go into debt for that masters degree or crank out two other lives that depend upon her.

        3. There is not a sense of entitlement to free tuition believe me – our sense of entitlement lies in the fact that…

          A teacher. With a Master’s. Who does not have a sense of entitlement, and yet does.

    2. My local government must be flush with cash:

      I doubt it but they do know where to go and get it.

  15. Florida man Dick Oranges bit store employee, swung knife at him

    Oranges, of Naples, was confronted earlier this month by the managers of an unidentified store and a loss prevention officer, who saw him go into a dressing room and leave without the clothing he brought in, the Naples Daily News reported this week.

    Oranges resisted their attempts to bring him back into the store, pushed the manager away and bit the officer’s arm hard enough to break the skin, police said. He then allegedly pulled out a knife and swung it at the officer. When the store workers backed away, Oranges fled in a gold convertible.

    1. Dick Oranges, acting crazy and driving a gold convertible… FLORIDA MAN IDOL!

      1. Eats Cheetos and watches porn?

        1. hopefully not Flamin’ Hot Cheetos

        2. Has a pet alligator

          Used to run a concession stand in Epcot center but was fired for making lewd remarks to children, “offering to show them his oranges”

    2. A Florida Man actually named Dick Oranges. Damn.

      1. Yeah. This killed the internet for me. I’m spending the rest of the day offline.

      2. Remember the chef named Dick L’Orange? *That* was funny!

      3. Fled in a gold convertible. Dick Oranges rules.

  16. The U.S. Supreme Court will issue one or more decisions today at 10am ET.

    I trust the liquor stores and pharmacies are ready.

  17. Hackers Stole Secrets of U.S. Government Workers’ Sex Lives

    Three former U.S. intelligence officials told The Daily Beast that the adjudication information would effectively provide dossiers on current and former government employees, as well as contractors. It gives foreign intelligence agencies a roadmap for finding people with access to the government’s most highly classified secrets.

    I feel safer already.

  18. Florida gun store owner wants to serve alcohol at Daytona Beach shooting range

    The business owner is bracing for his booze-and-bullets plan to be “highly scrutinized,” but he said establishing protocols and building reinforcements around his building are key to easing concerns.

    Guns will not be allowed in the caf? area, whether a customer is drinking or not, he said.

    And those who do choose to chase down a cold one will be limited to three drinks and have their IDs scanned, which then bans them from entering the shooting range for 24 hours.

    “If I smell alcohol, I’m not selling you a firearm,” Perkinson said. “It’s my license, it’s my insurance. I have to go home and sleep at night.”

    1. Add some tobacco and explosives and they could be a federal agency.

      (that’s a light-hearted joke, not meant to be taken seriously)

  19. Fort Dix Five “terror” plot really just Fed entrapment

    Important to remember since Governor Fatass will be talking about this constantly.

  20. Colour-changing condoms get picked up by contraceptive company

    Muaz told Newsbeat: “We wanted to make a product that will make life simpler, easier, better.”

    Their idea – which is still at concept stage – involves a condom covered with antibodies that would react with the proteins in bacteria, or antigens, found in STIs.

    Daanyaal explained: “Once the [bodily] fluids come into contact with the latex, if the person does have some sort of STI, it will cause a reaction through antibodies and antigens hanging on to each other, which triggers an antibody reaction causing a colour change.

    1. Well, that has *major* buzzkill potential.

    2. So basically whats ‘outside’ the condom triggers the color change?

    3. That’s what tongues are for.

    4. Hey baby, look! The color changed! You have something!

      But I have a latex barrier on. So let’s f*** anyway.

  21. The justices still have major opinions to release on Obamacare, gay marriage, death penalty drugs, EPA regulatory power, and more.

    Obamacare: Government wins (court won’t interfere with the will of the people to vote in lazy and illiterate legislators)

    Same-sex Marriage: Gays win (Kennedy tosses a coin)

    Death Penalty: Government wins (court won’t interfere with the will of the people to exact revenge)

    EPA: Government wins (court won’t interfere with the will of the people who voted for the regulators)

    1. Regulators are unelected bureaucrats, aren’t they? Congress delegated its legislative duties to the bureaucrats.

      1. And you elected Congress. Check. Mate.

    2. Agree with the first 3, but think EPA loses.
      Also think ‘disparate impact’ gets tossed in the FHA case.

  22. this explains a lot:

    Chemical in hoppy beer may cause man boobs and erectile dysfunction

    Hops are the female flowers of the hop plant and have high levels of phytoestrogen, or estrogen for plants. This is what Stephen Harrod Buhner, an herbalist and author, believes is causing the problem. In his book, Sacred and Herbal Healing Beers (which came out in 1998, by the way, and somehow ended up in several trending pieces online recently), Buhner notes that hops found in your favorite IPAs could potentially lead to man boobs.

    Hops were historically used in herbal medicine pre-1500s to treat insomnia and as a source of phytoestrogen to help with menopause and endometriosis among women. Hops might have also been used to reduce sexual desire among monks, though it’s difficult to substantiate whether it really worked. Of course, we’ve all heard that when you’re too drunk, you can’t keep it up ? and this is where the term “Brewer’s Droop” comes from.

    1. Explains it all. I read the youngin’s won’t drink Budweiser ’cause it don’t give ’em their daily dose of fe-male hormones.

    2. “Brewers Droop”, ever since hearing that in a Dire Straits tune I wondered what it meant. Now I know…

      1. “Two men say they’re Jesus, one of ’em must be wrong”

    3. I’ve been saying for years that the popularity of ultra-hoppy beer is a joke someone is playing on hipsters, and here’s the proof!

  24. The Rise of the Compliance Guru?and Banker Ire

    “In the old days, you dealt with one regulator when you had an issue, maybe two,” the JPMorgan Chase CEO said on a call with investors in January. “Now, it’s five or six. It makes it very difficult and very complicated. You all should ask the question about how American that is.”

    Several tax brackets down from Dimon, Justin “the Compliance Guru” Hall is betting that Dimon’s scourge will, by contrast, ensure his own upward mobility. Hall, 28, is a compliance officer at Charles Schwab Corp.’s retail bank. He and thousands of others like him, at every company in finance, are charged with keeping their revenue-obsessed colleagues on the right side of the rules. Compliance, not banking, has been the real growth business since 2008, when free-market liberties turned to liabilities and markets collapsed.

    1. Compliance, not banking, has been the real growth business since 2008

      See government does create jobs!

    2. The smartest guys become regulators. Why go private and make all that money?

    3. Anecdotal story – the last “real job” interview I had was for a compliance position, basically explaining Obamacare (‘scuse me, Affordable Care Act) to employers who buy the benefit plan this company was selling. Two other law school friends also interviewed for the same job, oddly enough. And one friend (who still hasn’t passed the bar yet) is in compliance for a local non-profit.

  25. Tsarnaev gave a statement yesterday apologizing for his actions. “If there is any lingering doubt, let there be no more. I did it, along with my brother,”

    “And to emphasize the sincerity of my apology, I waive any appeals and request that I be fried immediately.”

    1. Ha ha, nice one.

    2. I didn’t follow the trial too closely but it looks like he was led astray by his brother and family.

      He must nevertheless account for this foolishness.

    Fat is back: New guidelines give vilified nutrient a reprieve

    In the case of dietary fat, the committee did not find a health benefit to limiting the amount of total fat in the diet, whereas the 2010 and 2005 Guidelines stated that total fat should make up no more than 20% to 35% of total daily calories. The committee did recommend keeping the level of saturated fat, which is found in foods such as cheese, butter, whole milk and beef, to within 10% of total calories.

    “We wanted the emphasis to be on fat quality rather than total fat, because the evidence really emphasizes that saturated fat is the driver of risk rather than total fat intake,” said Barbara Millen, president of Millennium Prevention and chair of the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee.

    1. because the evidence really emphasizes that saturated fat is the driver of risk rather than total fat intake,

      This is nonsense.

      1. Which part?

      2. Saturated fat is good for you and this dimwits are still pushing bad science.

        The Big Fat Surprise

        1. Got it.

          I began to sharply reduce my intake of carbs and increase protein and fat few months ago. Definitely feel better.

    2. “Fat is back” – didn’t AC/DC sing that?

      1. (try not to get the song “back in black” stuck in your mind)

      2. No, but they did sing “Whole Lotta Rosie.”

    3. Here is a good read about dietary fat and protein. Yearlong study.

  27. Erdogan sees threat from Kurdish gains in Syria

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is reportedly angered by the victory June 15 of Syrian Kurdish and rebel fighters over Islamic State (IS) forces in Tell Abyad, a Syrian town close to the Turkish border.

    The influx of more than 23,000 Syrian refugees to Turkey as a result of the latest fighting brings the total number to nearly 1.8 million, the most Syrians hosted in any country, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

    Fehim Tastekin wrote June 14, “Erdogan’s anger with the operation to oust IS from the region became evident when he said on June 11, ‘The West, which is hitting Arabs and Turkmens of Tell Abyad from the air, is sadly settling the PYD [Democratic Union Party] and PKK [Kurdistan Workers Party] terror organizations in their places.'”

    1. I am increasingly of the opinion that Erdogan is as dumber than the median candidate for the U.S. presidency. It’s not as low as a limbo stick at carnival time, but it’s close.

  28. More people are in favor of Obamacare than against it. That’s the finding of a new CBS News poll.

    Forty-seven percent of people polled support the law, and forty-four percent do not support it.

    This is the first time in CBS’s polling that the results look like this, with a higher percentage of people supporting the law. The Affordable Care Act has been generally unpopular among Americans since it became law, but it has gotten more popular with time.

    DEATH SPIRAL!

  29. something something lobotomy

    Psychosurgeons Use Lasers to Burn Away Mental Illness

    A brain surgeon begins an anterior cingulotomy by drilling a small hole into a patient’s skull. The surgeon then inserts a tiny blade, cutting a path through brain tissue, then inserts a probe past sensitive nerves and bundles of blood vessels until it reaches a specific cluster of neural connections, a kind of switchboard linking emotional triggers to cognitive tasks. With the probe in place, the surgeon fires up a laser, burning away tissue until the beam has hollowed out about half a teaspoon of grey matter.

    This is the shape of modern psychosurgery: Ablating parts of the brain to treat mental illnesses. Which might remind you of that maligned procedure, the lobotomy. But psychosurgeries are different. And not just because the ethics are better today; because the procedures actually work.

    1. Well, in all fairness, lobotomies WORKED for what they were intended to do. Hell, eugenics WORKED, in a certain progressive sense…

    2. Are you saying there is hope for shriek, tony and tulpa?

      1. I think that may require total brain removal*

        *and I mean that in the kindest non-wooderchipperish way.

        1. Impossible. There’s nothing to remove.

        2. One cannot remove that which never existed in the first place.

          1. Dammit! Forgot to refresh. Well done, X.

    3. Psychosurgeons…

      Awesome band name.

  30. White Americans are apparently a bigger terror threat than Islamic Jihadists. Expect this to be the new “common sense, indisputable fact” that will be shoved down our throats for at least the next few months. As Gomer Pyle once said “Surprise, surprise, surprise!”

    http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us…..5c60699e68

    1. I just read the news often. If there is a mass shooting it is almost certain it is a whiat male – if it is a carjacking look for a blaek perp.

      More than anecdotal.

      1. I forgot to mention the “since 9/11” part as well.

        Take away the ~3,000 people murdered, and hundreds of rescue workers who succumbed to illnesses over the years due to their efforts at the WTC site, in an intricate plot by Jihadists that took years to plan, cost millions of dollars, and probably should have resulted in many more casualties, and it’s pretty close, you guys!

        1. You need to exclude data points that skew the result, and by “skew the result” I mean “say something I don’t like.”

        2. Please don’t feed the troll.

          1. But he enjoys it so much!

            http://cannacollective.co.uk/s…..ry&path=82

    2. I’d like to see what the implications are for the war on terror. Domestic drone strikes? Dark sites and extraordinary renditions? Might help deflate some of the war on terror boners.

  31. Like Peak Derp…

    Kevin Williamson: We Have Officially Reached Peak Leftism

    If it seems to you that the Left has, collectively, lost its damned mind as the curtain rises on the last act of the Obama administration, you are not imagining things. Barack Obama has been extraordinarily successful in his desire to ? what was that phrase? ? fundamentally transform the country, but the metamorphosis is nonetheless a good deal less than his congregation wanted and expected. We may have gone from being up to our knees in welfare-statism to being up to our hips in it, and from having a bushel of banana-republic corruption and incompetence to having a bushel and a peck of it, but the United States of America remains, to the Left’s dismay, plainly recognizable as herself beneath the muck.

    Ergo, madness and rage.

    1. Peak wingnut derp you mean.

      Obama “fundamentally transformed” the US into record capitalist profit and wealth gains and will negotiate the largest two free trade agreements in US history – further generating wealth for Americans.

      1. YAY!! OBAMA!!! Reagan’s got nothing on YOU, OBAMA!!! I mean, what a wealth creator you are!! And jobs!!

        MORE PEOPLE ARE WORKING NOW THAN WHEN YOU CAME INTO OFFICE!!!!

        Oh, wait….

      2. LOLOLOL You really need to take your act professional. You are like the rightwing version of Colbert sometimes. Take your meds, go down to the homeless shelter, take a shower and shave and see if there is program to get people like you used business suits and go down to the nearest improv club. You really have a gift for showing the absolute funniest and most over the top lefty retard. And I think that is something that would sell.

      3. Obama “fundamentally transformed” the US into record crony capitalist profit through record high stock buybacks and record low capex and actual investment and will negotiate the largest two free trade agreements in US history will be rammed down the throats of Americans– further generating wealth for Americans massive job losses and record trade deficits.

        1. All wingnut lies.

          Capex is nowhere near a record low. It is very healthy. Buybacks are due to record profits. Investors are creating more wealth than ever before.

          Free trade agreements are supported by the GOP Congress. “Rammed”? You’re some sort of back end boy.

          1. We were always at war with Eastasia. Tanks are not in Baghdad.

            You tell em shreek!!

          2. And how many people are working? How about the unemployment rate that doesn’t count the MILLIONS of people who have stopped looking for a job? And how many people ARE working now, compared to when Obama took office?

            1. Don’t bother, MC. Shriek isn’t sentient enough to address that particular problem, or the growing national debt, because neither fit the narrative.

          3. and fewer people are today than when the King assumed the throne. Far more are on food stamps. Malicious, inconvenient truths.

          4. The corporate profits you speak of are largely correlated to cut/scale backs.

            Also:

      4. See… Peak Derp can almost be found.

        Keep reaching for the stars, PB. Someday you’ll be right.

        1. It is a comedy act. It is posts like this one and the ones where he claims to be a “classical liberal” that are the tells.

          1. I know.

            WE NEED A WHITE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT!

            Everything will be just fine then.

            1. That is right. Stay in character shreek. Don’t buy into the modernist concept of self aware characters interacting with the audience. Go old school. The key to comedy is the people doing it must take it seriously.

              1. Classically. Liberal.

  32. Kids Create Salt Black Markets in Cafeterias Due to Michelle Obama’s Lunch Rules

    Sheesh, why even *have* metal detectors in schools if they can’t keep out *sodium*?

      1. *narrows gaze*

    1. The reason there is a black market is that salt is available outside of the school, similar to how guns are easily available in Chicago because there are guns easily available in Indiana.

      If salt were to be banned in totality, inside and outside the school, you would not have a black market.

  33. Ham sandwhiches?

    What does it mean to be white?: Dylann Roof, Rachel Dolezal and the ugly legacy of the Rhinelander case

    Strangely, these dramatically divergent stories must occupy some shared space for me, because both speak to the dangerous availability of black bodies as a location to vent, dump, exorcise or exacerbate our pathological relationship to race as a nation. Moreover, the black womanhood that Dolezal appropriates and that we deem newsworthy, much like the identity of the 200-year-old Emanuel AME Church, is framed within an unspoken but century-long national ambivalence ? not only what about space black bodies should occupy, but more important, what space black bodies should occupy in relation to whiteness. Dylann Roof reacted to his perception that black bodies were gaining too much power by exercising the most deranged exemplar of white privilege. Rachel Dolezal ? as an artist depicting black life, then a white woman suing a black institution, then assuming a black identity, then courting white animus by falsifying racist complaints ? flexed muscles that were strengthened by historical privilege. And in the end, black bodies remain the repository for the purging that happens as we continue to evade the question: “What does it mean to be white?”

    1. “not only what about space black bodies should occupy, but more important, what space black bodies should occupy in relation to whiteness”

      Now I know what this person is saying because I’ve encountered this sort of jargon before, but who would actually want to write this way? This is not the sentence of a well-ordered mind.

      1. The author of that piece plainly lives in an echo chamber. As for what it means to be white, the answer is grosgrain.

    2. These people bore me.

    3. The problem is that you can’t have a race driven society if you have significant intermarriage. Once people start intermarrying, you can no longer define what it means to be of a particular race. Without intermarriage, the definition is easy, you are whatever race your parents are. Once the races start intermarrying, you have people that can’t be defined by their parents. At that point, the “definition” becomes pretty much whatever they want to call themselves. You can get around that a little by having strict segregation. With segregation there isn’t a common culture and you can define people by which side of the tracks they live. But with intermarriage and integration, the whole system falls apart.

      The old white supremacists understood this and made intermarriage illegal. The race obsessed Progs are too delusional to understand that widespread intermarriage and integration is going to doom their system.

      1. The problem is that you can’t have a race driven society if you have significant intermarriage.

        O RLY?

        1. They had strict segregation.

          1. The article disputes that claim (see urban race mixture). I don’t know enough to have an opinion either way.

    1. “Bloody ‘ell! That ain’t *Gatorade*!”

    2. well… if I have to… *unzips*

    3. The importance of commas?

    4. Its a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it!

    6. And Canada will come on them!

    7. If this was California, the banner would have listed a mandate for safety goggles in fine print.

    8. that made me snort chortle. well done!

    9. Well, it’s a good thing the slogan didn’t say “in”, otherwise next spring there might be a surge in nappy (UK for diaper) sales.

  34. Debate over rebel flag widens to include all symbols of Confederacy

    The debate over the rebel flag that began anew after last week’s church shootings in Charleston, S.C., has morphed into a full-blown Confederate controversy.

    While Stars and Bars have long been associated by many with slavery, the latest campaign to remove Confederate emblems has extended beyond the flag to statues, memorials, parks and even school mascots. Never has the debate over what symbolizes heritage and what stands for hate covered so much ground, as efforts to strip icons that have been part of the visual and cultural landscape of the South for decades are afoot at national, state and local levels.

    In one Arkansas town, the school board voted unanimously Tuesday to ban the song “Dixie” for the next school year and phase out “Rebel,” the school’s mascot.

    “It came to our attention that the public has been pretty upset about the Confederate flag, which has already been removed, the rebel mascot [and] the playing of the ‘Dixie,'” Fort Smith, Ark., school board member Susan McFerran told reporters after the board voted for the changes.

    1. http://www.foxnews.com/politic…..latestnews

      And here it begins. Censorious grievance-mongers begin their sterilization of American history.

      1. How about we just delete the Civil War from history?

        1. In fact, let’s refrain from teaching any of it to our children. Force them all into governmental education camps, and teach them obedience, and nothing else. Serfs needn’t learn of the past, lest they agitate for liberty from their chains.

          1. Please do go on. [/Montgomery County Public Schools]

        2. At least devise some *modern* symbols of racism!

    2. Come to think of it, “southern states” is pretty offensive, too.

      1. Everything is offensive. Let’s ban everything.

      2. Right. In fact, “Southern” is offensive. We need to rename our hemispheres, how about topsy and downsy?

    3. Like I said above, book bannings within five years. Better bury your volumes of Faulkner in the yard, maybe some future archeologist in a saner time will dig it up.

      1. And any movie that portrays the rebels as anything remotely positive or heroic, or the bluecoats as anything but.

        The Outlaw Josey Wales for instance.

        1. ‘Cold Mountain’, too. And ‘Gone With the Wind’. Some Limey critic already demanded its prohibition.

          Fuck the censors. Fuck them all straight to hell.

        2. You forget about the worst Confederate apologist propaganda film of all (and possibly the best Civil War film ever)…. Gettsyburg.

        3. CSA is the new Nazi

        4. Lynryd Skynyrd

    4. You knew this was coming. This is all they have. So even if everyone folds and gives them what they want on the flag, they will just move onto something else.

      1. I have a suggestion. Why not expel the Southern states from the union?

        1. It is funny. The Democratic Party never said a word about Southern romanticism or the confederate flag for the nearly 130 years that the South voted Democrat. Then in 1994 it started voting Republican and now everything Confederate must go. It is almost like they only care about this for partisan benefit or something.

        2. #rednexit

          But it would be more peaceable if they could use fake social media accounts to get the progs demanding that they be expelled, and encourage all their politicians to be offended and upset about it, and try saying stupid things about rape while they demand to stay.

  35. The Confederate flag is not enough: Why our new race debate misses the point
    You can kill a symbol, but it’s not as easy to extinguish an idea — or the gun politics that help enforce it

    (NRA President) Porter’s statement (note the way he says “my Southern boys”) is a reflection of the ways in which we’ve allowed a debate over the removal of a flag to usurp the conversations we should be having instead. In addition to fighting the legacy of slavery?as well as America’s broader racial issues?Porter shows that racism and opposition to gun control often go hand in hand.

    While they’re treated as separate issues, research has shown they’re all part of the same problem?white supremacy. In 2013, Pacific Standard’s Tom Jacobs reported on a study from Australia’s Monash University, which found that a “high score on a common measure of racial resentment increases the odds that a person will (a) have a gun in the house, and (b) be opposed to gun control. This holds true even after other ‘explanatory variables,’ including political party affiliation, are taken into account.”

    1. “we’ve allowed a debate over the removal of a flag to usurp the conversations we should be having instead”

      Right, why not have conversations about the economy…wait, he wants to talk about “white supremacy.” OK, then.

  36. Army defends naming bases after Confederate soldiers

    The Army defended its practice of naming forts and posts after Confederate Army generals Wednesday, saying they are meant to memorialize historic figures, “not causes or ideologies.”

    The scrutiny comes after the deadly church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina and amid hotly-contested debate over Confederate flags and other symbols of the Confederacy. Many Army posts in the South are named for Confederate soldiers.

    The Army’s top spokesman, Brig. Gen. Malcolm B. Frost, issued a brief statement in the aftermath of questions about whether the military ought to consider changing the name of bases like Fort Bragg, North Carolina, which is named after the man who led the Confederate Army of Tennessee, Gen. Braxton Bragg.

    “Every Army installation is named for a soldier who holds a place in our military history,” Frost said. “Accordingly, these historic names represent individuals, not causes or ideologies. It should be noted that the naming occurred in the spirit of reconciliation, not division.”

    1. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015…..-soldiers/

      Expect these military commanders to “resign” shortly.

      1. Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, said Wednesday that he is unaware of any discussion within the Defense Department about changing the names of bases that memorialize Confederate soldiers.

        They are going to have that discussion whether they want to or not. Welcome to the back burner, ISIS strategy and Chinese spy hacking.

        1. Ban offensive tattoos, rowdy behavior, profanity, and, now, Confederate symbolism and namesakes.

          Watch as the greatest fighting force in the history of the world transforms into a large dormitory of politically correct pansies.

    2. Yup, it is just so obvious. Every time I show up for a weekend US Army reserve drill just about everyone in my unit is white… Oh. wait…

    School To Ban Rebel Mascot and “Dixie” Fight Song

    Football fans at Southside High School in Fort Smith, Arkansas have been cheering for the Rebels and Singing Dixie for more than 50 years.

    But that long time tradition is about to end, according to television station KFSM.

    Fort Smith educators said the song and the mascot are perceived symbols of racism. Here’s the statement they posted on the district’s Facebook page:

    “Giving great consideration to the continuing impact of perceived symbols of racism on the community, state and nation, the Fort Smith Public School Board convened as a Committee of the Whole tonight and passed a motion to discontinue the use of “Dixie” as the Southside High School fight song in the 2015-2016 school year, and to phase out the use of the Rebel as the Southside mascot in the 2016-2017 school year.”

    So starting next year ? the students will no longer be able to wish they were in the land of cotton.

    1. But that long time tradition is about to end, according to television station KFSM

      , which also announced that its call letters have always stood for “Kill Fucking Slave Masters”.

    2. They’re also thinking of dropping their other mascot, the Aryan Avenger.

      1. “Klansmen: Assemble?”

        1. No, that doesn’t have any alliteration. You need something like “Klansmen Konverge!” Now THERE’S a motto for a 90’s villain group!

    3. The whole point of attacking these legacy symbols of the confederacy is simply to encourage people on the SoCon right to start screaming about how they’re being repressed, so that the Lefty media can have a field day highlighting all the nasty people who vote republican and represent everything Good Americans are not.

      Its a tactical ploy to gin up a cultural conflict. Where are the “Bad Guys” when we need them? Pick a fight over the fucking flag.

      i don’t think its actually going to work. But i have no doubt that Salon mags desperation to talk about White Terrorism and our latent, incipient racist culture is entirely coordinated to provide a narrative about how White Maleness is the thematic source of al Evil which is why we need a …. old white woman to be president…. Yeah, i know it really kind of falls apart there at the end.

      1. I’m hoping whole thing blows up so monstrously, that the south secedes.

        All the racists will then be concentrated in one place. The Union.

    4. The song of the Marines should be banned as well then, since it celebrates American imperialism. C’mon “From the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli . . . “

  38. Obama loses temper with heckler at White House gay rights rally

    President Barack Obama took on a heckler head-on at a gay pride month reception at the White House Wednesday, scolding the protester for being disrespectful in “my house.”

    The heckler had interrupted Obama’s remarks by protesting the detention and deportation of gay, lesbian and transgender immigrants.

    The president responded, “Hold on a second.” When the heckler persisted, Obama, flashing an exasperated look, countered, “OK, you know what?” Wagging his finger and shaking his head, Obama said, “No, no, no, no, no,” repeating the word more than a dozen times.

    As the heckler continued to talk over him, Obama took it up a notch.

    “Hey. Listen. You’re in my house,” he said to laughter and woos from the crowd. “You know what? It’s not respectful when you get invited to somebody. You’re not going to get a good response from me by interrupting me like this. I’m sorry. I’m sorry … Shame on you, you shouldn’t be doing this.”

    “Now everyone, shut up and get back to adoring me!”

    1. When the heckler persisted, Obama, flashing an exasperated look,

      relieved the tension with the laugh-producing “You’re making me tho mad I could just *thcream*!”

    2. The same people who thought it was great when the guy threw a shoe at Bush are now all about respect his authoritah!! They really need to just get uniforms, maybe ones with brown shirts. And then learn how to march and maybe adopt some special salute.

      1. The same people who thought it was great when the guy threw a shoe at Bush are now all about respect his authoritah!!

        Principals, not principles.

  39. Hannity On Confederate Flag Bans: Should We Stop Selling Rap Music?

    http://talkingpointsmemo.com/l…..-rap-music

    Hannity = “John”. Same conservative logic.

    1. Nothing should be banned.

      1. No one is banning the/a Confederate flag.

        Hannity apparently thinks a Wal-Mart decision to stop selling it should be extended to rap music.

        1. NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT CONCENTRATION CAMPS AND GULAGS!

        2. I know you aren’t intelligent enough to see the distinction.

          The Confederate Battle Flag = Symbol of Hate, Therefore ban it
          The word ‘Nigger’ is an often used rap lyric = Word of Hate, Therefore ban that too.

  40. French tax drivers’ Uber protesting turning into riot, Uber drivers attacked

    Today’s taxi driver protest is getting out of hand. According to the police, 2,800 taxi drivers are protesting today against UberPOP, the European equivalent of UberX. With UberPOP, everybody can become an Uber driver ? taxi drivers see the service as unfair competition as they have to get a special license. Yet, this doesn’t really explain why cabbies are now attacking Uber drivers, burning and breaking their cars.

    The police has already arrested a taxi driver and an Uber driver. The cabbie was throwing projectiles toward the police, while the latter was attacking a cabbie. It is currently very difficult to go to Charles-De-Gaulle and Orly airports as taxi drivers are blocking the roads. Taxis are also controlling many parts of Paris, looking for Uber drivers.

    There are other protests happening right now in Nice, Marseille, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Lyon and Lille. It’s the biggest protest so far against the urban transportation company in France as UberPOP has been expanding to new French cities.

    1. Complain about “unfair” competition from superior competitor

    2. Block roads to airports and train stations, stranding thousands of people who might otherwise sympathize with you

    3. ????

    4. PROFIT!

    1. Try this in America. Please. It’s recipe to get shot.

      1. Not if we just had common-sense assault laws like they do in France! The right to be assaulted!!

    2. Frunce.

      Is there anything it can’t do for Marx?

    1. Still way too manic. But I luv da judge anyways.

  41. Spot the Not: Todd Akin

    1. I oppose the attempts of homosexual activists to treat homosexual activity as a civil right to be protected and promoted by the government.

    2. I am politically incorrect, that’s true. Political correctness to me is just intellectual terrorism. I find that really scary, and I won’t be intimidated into changing my mind. Everyone isn’t going to love you all the time.

    3. At the heart of liberalism really is a hatred for God and a belief that government should replace God.

    4. First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.

    5. My base will show up in earthquakes.

    6. I oppose any attempt to grant homosexual unions the same legal privileges that civil government affords to traditional marriage and family life.

  42. Spot the Not: Henry Waxman

    1. Saddam Hussein has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do.

    2. The sanctity of our battlefields, monuments, and veterans institutions is of utmost importance to preserve military history and pay respect to those who fought.

    3. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

    4. If someone is so fearful that, that they’re going to start using their weapons to protect their rights, makes me very nervous that these people have these weapons at all!

    5. We’re seeing the reality of a lot of the North Pole starting to evaporate, and we could get to a tipping point. Because if it evaporates to a certain point ? they have lanes now where ships can go that couldn’t ever sail through before. And if it gets to a point where it evaporates too much, there’s a lot of tundra that’s being held down by that ice cap.

    6. There are Jews who are trending toward the Republican Party, some of it because of their misunderstanding of Obama’s policies in the Middle East, and some of it, quite frankly, for economic reasons. They feel they want to protect their wealth, which is why a lot of well-off voters vote for Republicans

    1. “We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.”

      ^ Unless Waxman was in Plan 9, this is not it.

  43. Imma say two. Too intelligent for him.

    And what happened with the cults thing? Did you ever get around to telling us which was fake and what the others were? (Pretty sure the Elvis one was fake…)

    1. The consensus answers were correct. The Elvis one was fake and I made up the story about a guy in India being arrested for selling Ganesh PEZ dispensers.

  44. Obamacare subsidies upheld, Peanuts.

    1. Keep sucking that Obama cock.

      1. I see fuckface is taking a break from finishing up his crappy rock and roll book.

        Weigel, Yglesias, and who the hell knows who else are going to wildly celebrate tonight by taking turns making each other airtight.

  45. I buy almost everything except food and clothing from online auctions most people arenâ????t aware of the almost I unbelievable deals that they can get from online auction sites the site that has the best deals is
