Moron Meet-Ups

Stunner: Hillary Clinton Thinks It Would Be Pretty Neat If We Elected a Woman President Real Soon | Main | Saturday Morning Open Thread
June 21, 2013

Overnight Open Thread (21 June 2013)

As of 0104 this morning, it is now officially summer. Enjoy it morons. Daylight only gets shorter from now on.

There is something missing in this article on why an increase in border patrol agents has corresponded with a decrease in apprehensions and removals. I don't know, maybe it was a no-apprehension policy? I'd sure like to know the number of "turn back south" (TBS) incidents.

Moron Meetup Tonight

I have it on good authority that this is what is happening at the NorVA meetup tonight. And probably some basic debauchery. I'm hopeful we'll get updates in the comments.

Sue And Settle

Beware of the back-door EPA effort to impose cap-and-trade on gasoline.

Sue-and-Settle is an abuse of the regulatory process that is frequently used by Big Green environmental groups to force implementation of costly new standards and regulations.

Here's how it works: A group threatens to sue EPA over what it asserts to be a failure to issue rules required meet a statutory obligation. The group then meets with EPA in closed-door negotiations that result in a court-approved "settlement," in which EPA agrees to go through with the rules.

Of course, the particular rulemaking is usually one that the American people are vehemently against -- which is precisely why environmental groups prefer Sue-and-Settle: it occurs outside the legislative process, behind closed doors, with little or no participation from the very businesses and consumers who ultimately foot the bill.

60 such deals have occurred between 2009 and 2011. Can we defund the EPA now?

Miss USA Financial Tips

I'm going to go ahead and nominate her to replace Ben Bernake. Miss USA's Three Top Tips For Saving Money. Pretty basic stuff really but damn, if she was in charge of the Fed, I'd watch every FOMC meeting.

Most Violent US Cities

Top 5 all run by democrats.

The economies of many of the most dangerous cities have been in bad shape for years, in some cases long before the Great Recession.

Yup. They keep voting for the same and in many cases, for decades. Can't fix stupid.

Related. Firearm Stopping Power: Fact, Fiction and Anecdotes. Bottom line? Keep shooting.

Tonight's Dessert

Oh my. I gotta have this. Chocolate-dipped coffee ice cream doughnut sandwiches. Just needs a little bacon.

Dog Grooming

Dogs groomed to look like fictional characters and wild animals.
