Weekend links

  • Some climate scientists want those who disagree with them to be charged with treason. The latest bunch isn’t so hysterical in its desire to suppress opposition. They merely want the RICO statutes levied against those who don’t share their opinions. Somebody should tell them this isn’t how science “settles” questions.
  • Bovard has an article in Barrons on how the Nazgul discarded existing rights while proclaiming new ones.
  • Cane-weilding “pacifist” homeowner gets gun from intruder and kills him dead.
  • Fascinating. Why Holocaust denial exists and why Jews are guilty of it, too. (H/T E.A.) Yes, you and I know most of this, but so many won’t even look at the facts!
  • Ouch! Another use for a GoPro camera.
  • Sigh. Another sad result from Washington state’s pot legalization. (Unlike Colorado’s and several of the other new laws, WA’s was largely the work of former drug warriors, not cannabis fanciers.)
  • My dog Ava could spend days on end doing this.

    “The power you give government to do unto others will be used to do unto you.” And they’ll be utterly surprised when it happens.

    A powerful comment on holocaust denial.

    I’m reminded of “Innocents Betrayed” http://www.amazon.com/Innocents-Betrayed-by-Aaron-Zelman/dp/B001CGCOM8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UT around the world!

    And M – thanks for the article referring to Ben Carson. I remember very well the movie, “A Time to Kill”, and specifically that closing argument. It, too, was a powerful statement which left me wondering how many in the audience were willing to apply it to themselves.

    “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that.”

    I remember when serious men said the same thing about JFK, because he was Catholic.
