Recall Madness 

James of Infinite Monkeys suggests recalling black leaders. Too bad they're not elected, I bet it could work. Hat tip to Calblog for the link.

Zero Tolerance run amok 

Boy lands in trouble for lending his asthma inhaler to a friend.

If you have children in school and they are asthmatic, ask your doctor to specify that he or she carry on their person the inhaler on the prescription.

Why you shouldn't make assumptions 

Matt Welch writes on how equating people's politics with their skin color can be dangerous can be dangerous to your political ambitions.

It's easy to understand why both parties take certain voting blocs for granted. The images we're constantly bombarded with in the media would seem to reinforce the notion that people think and vote in lockstep with one another based on race or ethnicity. In reality, we know it ain't true.

Unfortunately, there are large groups within ethnic communities that do take the attitude that one party is good and the other bad. Now they complain when the party that they've pledged their blind allegiance to treats them like a two-bit whore. What they fail to see is that by refusing to vote for any other party, they've put themselves into that position. By giving their votes in exchange for favors and handouts, they have, quite frankly whored themselves.

To top it off, they denigrate anyone who refuses to buy into the identity politics that they so faithfully espouse. This story seems to give me some hope that people are finally starting to wake up and understand that what's good for the goose isn't necessarily good for the gander.

There's a quote from Clarence Thomas that sums it up best:

"I knew who I was and needed no gimmicks to affirm my identity, Nor, might I add, do I need anyone telling me who I am today. This is especially true of the psycho-silliness about forgetting my roots or self-hatred." "I assert my right to think for myself, to refuse to have my ideas assigned to me as though I was an intellectual slave because I’m black."

Ouch.

The plot thickens... 

Clayton Cramer has this bit about one of the LA Times' sources on the groping charges being leveled against Arnold Schwarzenegger. Turns out that she has close conections to Grey Doofus and his enforcer, Bob Mulholland. Interestingly enough, while the Times was all to happy to report her allegations, they were a little more reticent about profiling her background.

Anyone who still believed that the Times was impartial has sure found out what the rest of us have known for years. In my opinion, they should have their press credentials revoked.

The return of personal accountability? 

Finally, someone is held accountable for their actions.

From the story:

"McKnight's lawyers say there is no proof her cocaine use caused the child's death. "

Get real. The woman was a crack addict who admitted that she knew she was pregnant, but continued to use anyway.
