“After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next,” Palin told Foreign Policy in 2008
Palin herself took to Facebook on Friday to remind supporters of her prediction. “Yes, I could see this one from Alaska. I’m usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did, despite my accurate prediction being derided as ‘an extremely far-fetched scenario’ by the ‘high-brow’ Foreign Policy magazine,” she wrote. “Here’s what this ‘stupid’ ‘insipid woman’ predicted back in 2008.” [story]
Forgive me for not seeing this earlier.
Palin will be blamed for irresponsibly inciting the Russian invasion in 3..2..1..
…it’s difficult to think of a more clueless way for the city attorney to respond than with a cease-and-desist order … because too many people are contacting city officials through e-mail accounts used for official city business…
Legal Court Sanction upholding “right” to curtail Americans’ rights as hostage to “enflamed passions” of foreign citizens
San Jose suburb of Morgan Hill, CA.
Officials at a Northern California high school acted appropriately when they ordered students wearing American flag T-shirts to turn the garments inside out during the Mexican heritage celebration Cinco de Mayo, [The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals] ruled Thursday.
…Judge M. Margaret McKeown wrote for the panel. The past events “made it reasonable for school officials to proceed as though the threat of a potentially violent disturbance was real,”
Yep. The Mexican stuuuudents would riot if they saw an American flag t-shirt.
So that “justifies” telling the American students not to wear American flat t-shirts. It nowhere suggested that the Mexican students ought to be told, mind your manners or yer outta here. Everyone acts as though the violent people have some sort of mysterious Point that constitutes an excuse. Or are an Act of Nature. or something.
Wouldn’t “proceed[ing] as though the threat of a potentially violent disturbance was real” mean “No Event For You”?!? You behaved badly last year — no event this year?
A] How dare anyone be so un-toooolerant as to object to someone else celebrating their own cuuuultural heritage?!?
2] How dare the faaaacist Authority Figures suppress the expression of someone’s
cuuuultural heeeeritage at the behest of The Majority?!?
Whatinhell happened to punishing bad behavior — or at least letting it be known that bad behavior will be punished/not toooolerated — if should anyone engage in it?

An attorney representing five Olympia Food Co-op members argued Monday to the state Court of Appeals that an Olympia judge erred in 2012 when he dismissed their lawsuit seeking to overturn the co-op’s boycott of Israeli goods.
In 2012, now-retired Thurston County Superior Court Judge Thomas McPhee ruled that it was illegal for the co-op members to sue the 16 defendants who voted unanimously to enact the co-op’s boycott of Israeli goods in July 2010.
McPhee had ruled that the lawsuit seeking to end the boycott of Israeli goods was an illegal Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation, or SLAPP.
SLAPPs are defined as nuisance lawsuits designed to stifle free speech and create onerous legal costs for those who choose to exercise their free-speech rights. SLAPPs are illegal under a state law that the food co-op defendants’ attorney, Bruce Johnson, and another staff attorney at the law firm of Davis Wright Tremaine helped draft.
As a result of the co-op’s boycott, Israeli products were removed from the co-op’s two stores, one in northeast Olympia and the other on Olympia’s west side. Boycotted products included gluten-free crackers, ice cream cones and a moisturizing cream.
On Monday, Robert Sulkin, the attorney representing the five co-op members who sued in 2012, made his case before an Appeals Court panel in Seattle that McPhee’s ruling was in error.
At stake is the $160,000 in damages that McPhee ordered Sulkin’s clients to pay as part of a mandatory “anti-SLAPP penalty,” along with more than $60,000 in attorney’s fees.
As part of McPhee’s ruling, he ordered the five plaintiffs represented by Sulkin to pay a total of $10,000 to each of the 16 defendants named in the lawsuit.
On Monday, Sulkin and Johnson each made brief statements to the three-judge Court of Appeals panel in Seattle, and were peppered with questions by the judges.
Sulkin reiterated his earlier arguments that the co-op board violated its own policies by not reaching consensus among co-op members in arriving at the decision to boycott.
“This case is about five members of the Olympia Food Co-op trying to force the co-op to follow its own procedures,” Sulkin told the Court of Appeals on Monday. “The board passed a resolution in violation of these procedures.”
Sulkin also said that the co-op’s boycott is not “nationally recognized,” as required under the food co-op’s own policies.
Johnson, on the other hand, noted that the co-op’s “own bylaws confer on the board the plenary authority to manage and direct the affairs of the corporation.”
I’ve begun to notice how much worse I am with names lately and it dawned on me that what I seem to be doing is attributing 3 characteristics of people and dogs…3 things that describe them best….to each new person/dog that I meet…and focusing on them not what’s-their-name.
Charles Krauthammer says it right up front in his Washington Post column: “I’m not a global warming believer. I’m not a global warming denier.”
He does, however, challenge the notion that the science on climate change is settled and says those who insist otherwise are engaged in “a crude attempt to silence critics and delegitimize debate.”…

Florida Democratic congressional candidate Alex Sink said … “Immigration reform is important in our country …. We have a lot of employers over on the beaches that rely upon workers and especially in this high-growth environment, where are you going to get people to work to clean our hotel rooms or do our landscaping?” [story]
“Hey, who’s gonna harvest the cotton, rice, and sugar cane?” was a justification for importing slaves, too.
“We don’t need to put those employers in a position of hiring undocumented and illegal workers.”
Nope, no need to even try to attract and hire Americans thrown out of work by all the other Democrat jackassery (keeps ‘em attached to the teat and penned-up on the Democrat reservation, anyway).
Nope, just bring in fresh shipment of peasants who’ll vote for Democrats and provide cheap plantation labor for crony capitalists.
(What? “High-growth environment”? She actually said that?)
Instead of “Girls only” (bad enough), shouldn’t it have been labeled “Immigrants only”?
