His Majesty’s take on the Iran agreement

July 18th, 2015 by Vader

His Majesty has been shaking his head all week in astonishment.

Has anyone else said this yet?

This agreement takes Obama up a couple of notches in my estimation. I thought he was just another empty suit mouthing silly platitudes and breaking down the culture because he was too dim to appreciate what he was destroying. A bull in a china shop. But this move shows a glimmer of actual evil genius.

Of course Obama knows the Iranians aren’t going to honor the agreement. And Obama knows the Israelis know the Iranians aren’t going to honor the agreement. So the Israelis are going to have to strike the nuclear facilities, because for them, it really is an existential threat. They will calculate that they have no choice.

So the Iranian nuclear threat will be eliminated without Obama getting any (more) tarnish on his Nobel Peace Prize.

And Obama will then, in a burst of self-righteous fury, use that strike as a reason to cut all U.S. ties with Israel. Oh, he’ll offer to maintain ties if Israel gives the Palestinians everything they demand — but that is also an existential threat to the Israelis, who will calculate they have no choice but to refuse.

Israel will then have to look for allies wherever she can find them.

And if she can’t, she’ll have all the nation of the earth arrayed against her. Sounds positively apocalyptic.

Burying the lede

July 17th, 2015 by Vader

The headline: “CDC: Don’t kiss your pet chicken”

The real lede: “Our 9-year-old daughter wanted a dog for her birthday and we surprised her with chickens instead. She was at first disappointed,” said Ruth Harrigan.

What kind of parent would do that?

My sympathy goes out

July 14th, 2015 by Vader

To my thoughtful, conservative Catholic friends in their present perplexities.

Yes, I understand the Pope is considered infallible only when speaking ex cathedra and infallibility is not impeccability. Cling to that as long as you can.

Second-generation ignorance

July 09th, 2015 by Vader

Is much worse than first-generation ignorance.

And colleges have become the premier institutions in our civilization for passing on the ignorance of the past.

Greeks apologize

July 06th, 2015 by Cassandra

With gift of very large horse.

A gift tag attached to the horse, which is surprisingly light for its size and has small holes along the length of its body, suggested that it should be placed in the bank’s vaults overnight to avoid it being targeted by thieves.

Animus

June 30th, 2015 by Ask a Liberal Mormon

The courts have found that there cannot possibly be any reason to deny gays the benefits of marriage that is not rooted in animus. Bigots on the Right claiming that there are rational arguments for the traditional view of marriage are just lying about their real motivations.  Here’s a quote to prove it:

The ideal squirrel

June 22nd, 2015 by Vader

squirrell

I mean this in the Platonic sense. A computer trained to recognized squirrels, by being shown a huge number of examples of squirrel versus not-squirrel, was instructed to draw an image of a squirrel. So this is the computer’s notion of an ideal squirrel.

Occam is looking better all the time. Or Turing is looking worse.

You’re doing it right.

I think stark, raving, and nuts are all thoroughly covered here.

A Father’s Day thought from my daughter

*sigh*

Kids just don’t listen. I’ve told her over and over that it was all Tarkin’s fault, that the man was insane, but she just doesn’t want to hear it.
