Overnight Open Thread (22 Apr 2016)

Happy Earf Day morons. Hope you have everything on and running.

Oh, if you have clear skies tonight, you can catch the peak of the Lyrid Meteor Shower.


Voting Felons

One should NOT get their right to vote back if they are a convicted felon. One should've carefully considered how important their right to vote was before they make their poor criminal decisions. Virginia governor enables 200,000 felons to vote in November for Hillary.

Going Green

The government will make you go green, one way or another. San Francisco just became the first big US city to require solar panels on all new buildings.

Quebec contemplates mandating home EV charging stations.

Words We Invented By Getting Them Wrong

Refugees

I expect to see a lot of more these type stories. Windsor High School basketball star found to be a 30 year old refugee from South Sudan.

He Said What?

Someone needs to tell the President that this also applies here at home. Obama: Uncontrolled migration a "major national security issue". Not one reporter thought to ask a follow up question as to why does this not apply here in America?

Friday Night Score

John Powell's score to The Bourne Identity is pretty good without the movie.

Patriotic Songs

I don't recall this song. Prince wrote America's best patriotic song you've never heard.

Obviously the Cold War juxtaposition and imagery are outdated, but the idea - that American freedom requires an intellectual, moral, and physical commitment - is expressed as well, if not better, than any other lyricist has done since the advent of rock and roll.

Prince explicitly rebukes the left-wing criticism of America - that its unequal distribution of wealth makes it worse than countries that strive to be socialist utopias. He asserts instead that America is worthy of celebrating because freedom is the most important value, more important than equality of outcomes, more important than being cool.

Teachers

Yeah, little wonder Chicago students aren't doing so well in school when the teachers union president calls Illinois Governor an 'ISIS recruit'. So tell me Karen Lewis, what has Gov. Rauner done to your union that even remotely resembles a crucifixion, a beheading, suicide bombing, etc? I would think if he was even just slightly like ISIS, you'd already be wearing a burkha no?

More News BS

How 60 Minutes played 'Telephone' with public hacking hysteria.

Question Of The Day

I just learned this today. Why aren't the Toronto Maple Leafs spelled Leaves?
