Stuff I Didn't Get To Today Open Thread

Need a little time off before the podcast. Here are some quick links.

Author Brad Thor speculates about his own personal Flight 370 nightmare scenario.

CBS's Marketwatch analyst is starting to get a little suspicious about this "economic recovery."

Liberal Richard Cohen rips out-of-control progressives for opposing charter schools at the expense of poor children-- while pretending that by punishing poor children, they're striking a blow against The One Percent.

The Democratic Party, which runs on Mediscare most elections, is firmly behind Obama's serious, deep cuts to home health care providers and hostels for the elderly. When you're paying them so much less, you can expect a lot less in return -- and many will simply go out of business.

This Cracked article by a real-life Top Gun on the Five Things You Don't Know About Piloting a Jet Fighter is pretty awesome.

I know you're going to call me a damned liar, but Tom Friedman has written something stupid about Sustainable Energy Serious You Guys.

Oh, and Former Enron Consultant Paul Krugman asserts that he knows the Tea Party is racist. How does he know this? Simple, really: While the Tea Party opposes wealth transfers to "Those People" (he actually says "Those People"), the Tea Party, he sagely informs you, has never complained about the government's TARP bailouts of banks.

Never! Not once! Never happened!

I've been trying to think of something clever to say about this Christina Hoff Summers article on the increasing tendency to treat masculinity as a disease, but I can't, so I'll just recommend it.

Slate must really need hits, because they've offered up their most controversial #TrollOutrage article yet: College Isn't For Everyone, So Let's Stop Pretending It Is.

Oh, and healthcare premiums will skyrocket under Obamacare. But you knew that.

The Meatball continues his Meatballish ways by appearing on Amy & Gay Patriot's The Wrap show at 9pm tonight.


For something cute/funny/sorta alarming, Dave in Texas sends this video of a kid who may be a Wile E. Coyote type genius when it comes to removing a loose tooth.

Which isn't a good way to be a genius. But still, a sort of genius.

Okay, to enjoy this video, put it outside of your mind, for a moment, that maybe this dad should take more ownership of this situation.

And don't worry: Nothing bad happens. Even Wile E. Coyote gets lucky every once in a while.
