Virginia Hale, Breitbart: Women Today are Thriving – It’s Men We Should Be Worried About
"We are entering an Age of Endarkenment, where discussion of ideas is out of bounds, and logic and reason are to feminists what garlic, crosses and direct sunlight are to vampires." [rdbrewer]


Baby, There’s a Lot of Hoden Angst Outside
"'When the Pillsbury Doughboy from Hell tries to tell us what kind of movies we can make or see, the only honorable response is ‘Go f**k yourself,’' Jonah Goldberg writes in the latest edition of the G-File, which imports the potentially trendsetting phrase 'hoden angst' into America." [rdbrewer]
Faces of Meth: AoSHQ edition [dri]

Randy Barnett: Nebraska and Oklahoma are misreading Raich
"[I]n no way did [the Court in Raich] say or even imply that Congress had the power to compel state legislatures to exercise their police power to criminalize the possession of marijuana, or to maintain their previous legislation criminalizing such behavior." Via @GabrielMalor. See also: Jonathan Adler: Are Nebraska and Oklahoma just fair-weather federalists? And Eugene Volokh: Some small observations about the new Nebraska & Oklahoma v. Colorado interstate marijuana lawsuit. And my solution for Nebraska and Oklahoma: stop bothering people. [rdbrewer]
ISIS selling organs from hostages and dead fighters.
Dude - we get it. You're evil. [ArthurK]
I want to thank Rand Paul and his 2-D conceptualization of Cuba for making it easier to winnow out the chaff from the 2016 Republican field. [krak/t]
Daily Express: Ibuprofen adds 12 years to life! Cheap painkillers can slow ageing and fight disease [rdbrewer]

Joshua Rothman, New Yorker: The Crazy History of 'Star Wars'
"Solo was partly based on Francis Ford Coppola." [rdbrewer]

Video: We're not so different, you and I
Via @debbywitt. [rdbrewer]

Bill Whittle, Truth Revolt: We're Number Two!
Video. More at BillWhittle.com. [rdbrewer]


Jon Gabriel: Kim Jong-un to Host 87th Annual Oscars [rdbrewer]


Sonny Bunch: Signposts of a Broken Culture
"Think about this for a second. What we are saying—nay, what we have accepted, as a society—is a situation in which a totally blameless third party would be held responsible for the evil committed by an irresponsible actor." Bunch begs the question as to whether the 3d party is blameless. Reasonable forseeability is the basis for a defendant's duty to a plaintiff and is always a question for a jury. [rdbrewer]


Jonah Goldberg: No Superheroes in The Interview Cave-In
"Mayor Fiorello La Guardia wanted to speak to the creators of Captain America. Simon got on the line. 'You boys over there are doing a good job,' the voice squeaked. 'The city of New York will see that no harm will come to you.'" The creators of Captain America were getting death threats. [rdbrewer]
IRS unintentionally advocates for Flat Tax. Claim they are underfunded to handle the complex tax situations that now exist, which may result in a partial "shutdown" of the IRS, and certainly will result in delayed tax refunds. So, the Right has a great opportunity to turn this further bald politicization of the IRS against them and the Left (birm): Spell out to the American public how cheaply the IRS could operate when dealing with a Flat Tax. [krak/t]

Jim Geraghty: The North Korean Hacking Threat Hits Close to Home
"This fat pant-load thinks he can push us around." [rdbrewer]


Michael Barone: America’s Dynastic Turn
"The fact that Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton could end up as president leaves many Americans queasy." Let the Democrats look back. The GOP needs to look forward in picking a candidate. [rdbrewer]


Joseph Bottum: Even Small Towns Are Loading Up On Grenade Launchers
"What exactly is a Midwestern state’s attorney general doing with any military rifles? What, for that matter, is anyone doing with military equipment?" And right at the time people were talking about legislation to end this program, the Ferguson liars showed up. Now taking military equipment from the police is off the table for many in Congress. Thanks, Ferguson liars. [rdbrewer]


Chuck Ross: Did UVA Student Plagiarize ‘Dawson’s Creek’ In Love Letter To Friend?
"An email likely sent by Jackie to a friend of hers who she was romantically interested in appears to be plagiarized from an episode of Dawson’s Creek...." Via @Maetenloch. It gets worse: Steven Sailor: The Literary Sources of Haven Monahan's Glitch in the Matrix Email. Via @ComradeArthur. Added: Chuck Ross updates his story: UVA Student May Have Also Plagiarized TV Show ‘Scrubs,’ Others In Love Paean To Friend. [rdbrewer]


Daniel Wiser: Obama Provides Economic Lifeline to Cuba
"The Obama administration’s normalization of relations with Cuba has handed the Communist government an economic lifeline, critics say, just when its traditional foreign patrons are suffering from their own domestic troubles." [rdbrewer]
And even more plagiarized love notes contributed by "Jackie, from UVA". Anyone else starting to feel like an extra in The Truman Show? [krak/t]
Risk Based Security: A Breakdown and Analysis of the December, 2014 Sony Hack
A very detailed ticktock of the Sony security breach. Via @jcopella. [rdbrewer]

IBD: On Cuba, Obama Had an Ace, and Dropped a Deuce
"Obama held a handful of strong cards — including the plunging price of oil and the weakening of potential Cuban patrons from China to Russia to Iran — but instead played the deuce, offering concessions to Castro without getting so much as a pledge of democracy." [rdbrewer]

Capitulation Complete: Paramount Bans Showing of Team America: World Police
"According to IMDB, Team America, while distributed by Paramount, was produced by Scott Rudin, the embattled (and uber-manic) Sony Pictures executive being eaten alive by the North Korean hacking scandal." [rdbrewer]
Everybody hates Ted (Cruz)
Honeybadger don't give a ****
[Weirddave]
The Daily Beast: Paramount Bans Showing ‘Team America’
Via @Benk84. [rdbrewer]
