Overnight Open Thread (6-9-2013)

A List of Conservative Songs

As collected by the Conservapedia. Some of these seem like a reach but then I'm sorta lyric-deaf so maybe I'm missing some kind of sub-text.

Here's a quick sampling:


Staying Below the Radar on the Interest

I've always figured that if a three-letter agency was truly interested in you, they could eventually penetrate your privacy. But these measures will keep your information from being tracked casually.

Anonymity, Darknets and Staying Out of Federal Custody, Part One: Deep Web

Anonymity, Darknets and Staying Out of Federal Custody, Part Two: Onions and Daggers

Anonymity, Darknets and Staying Out of Federal Custody, Part Three: Hidden Services

Anonymity, Darknets and Staying Out of Federal Custody, Part Four: The Invisible Internet

Why Schumer-Rubio Is a Fraud - The Short Version

Notice how legalization happens up front while the enforcement is on the back-end with no milestones nor measurable objectives.

"Multiple triggers" - Legalization is immediate. DHS just has to write border "plan." The most any "triggers" can possibly do is delay green cards and citizenship.

"90% effectiveness" - If not reached, triggers only toothless commission

"Pay back taxes" - Only if already "assessed" by IRS (unlikely). Newly legalized may instead get refunds.

"Learn English" - Only need to sign up for English class.

"Clean record" - Allows two free misdemeanors. Additional misdemeanors (including assaults) can be waived by DHS.

No "public charge." Must earn 125% of poverty line - They're going to deport people who earn only 124% or less? Ha.

"Pay a fine" - Can be waived by DHS.

"Back of the line" - Get to wait out the line while living in the U.S (unlike suckers trying to come here legally).

Border fence - Leaves it up to DHS, which decided not to complete fence in first place.

"Comprehensive Southern Border Security Strategy" - Only has to be "substantially" operational-whatever that means, as defined by DHS-before green cards are issued. (Legalization has already happened, remember!)

"E-verify" employment checks - Replaces E-Verify with new system. Requires only that this system be "implemented" (30%? 70%? Who knows?). Subject to lawsuit. If still in court after 10 years, never mind!

Entry-exit system for visas - Has been required since 1996. DHS must only be "using" a system before green cards can be issued. (Using in 10% of airports? 50%? Again, who knows?)

I'm actually more open to some kind amnesty than many here but the one thing that will make me an enemy for life is lying to my face about what you're doing.



The Herd Instinct and Andrew Dice Clay

"I remember the first time I saw Andrew Dice Clay - on TV, doing his typical routine - and I thought it was obviously a spoof of exaggerated masculinity. Later, I found out that right-thinking women were supposed to assume the 'that's not funny' position."

I listened to Adam Carolla's podcast with Andrew Dice Clay a few weeks ago and once you got past his Dice persona much of the interview was on how critical his relationship with his father was to his success, the importance of family and how much time he devotes to his kids. And it occurred to me that the day-to-day Andrew Dice Clay is probably a better person than most of his critics.


Amish Farmer Strikes a Blow for Food Freedom

You can voluntarily buy your clearly marked raw milk if you want to.

The New Face of the Russian Arms Industry

Sure why not. Because Seagal is the first thing I think of when I'm looking for cheap, robust weapons to threaten my fellow Russian weapon-armed neighbors.


Nutella: Panacea or Toxic Sludge?


Who Says Romance is Dead?
