The IRS and The Cult Of Arbitrary Power
May 14, 2013 — The Internal Revenue Service has targeted “Tea Party,” conservative-leaning, and even Jewish non-profits for special harassment. There is even an indication that the IRS might have targeted reporters perceived as hostile to President Obama.

Affordable Auckland Waitemata & Gulf Council candidate Stephen Berry says not one cent of ratepayer money should go to Holy Trinity Cathedral for any reason. “It is far out of the bounds of core Council services to be giving millions of dollars of other people’s money to religious organisations. The Cathedral’s application should be dismissed immediately.”

Squillo, the Italians call it, the piercing quality in a voice that enables it to cut across an orchestra, the aural equivalent of a laser beam; squillo is what the Welshman Bryn Terfel has in abundance, as he demonstrated on Friday night at the acoustically challenging Michael Fowler Centre.

I am going to keep this thread permanently blue-stickied, like Marcus's Global Warming thread, Philip Duck's UN thread, etc. It will serve as a repository for exhibits in my case that America has now become Airhead America indisputably -- comprachicoed, cretinized, lobotomized, infantilized, collectivized, Slayerized, zombified, pomofied, Gramscified, Alinskyfied and generally filthified beyond recognition (from the Founding Fathers' Republic) and beyond salvation. It is not a cliff that America hovers atop; it is the abyss.

Gun Control: Controlling the Government’s Guns
The recent mass shootings in Aurora, Colorado and then in Oak Creek Wisconsin have led to renewed demands for “gun control” aimed ultimately at depriving the individual citizen of his Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. It is believed that if the individual were deprived of this right, such shootings would not take place, because of the sheer lack of available weaponry.

"The emotion involved in art is not an emotion in the ordinary meaning of the term. It is experienced more as a 'sense' or a 'feel,' but it has two characteristics pertaining to emotions: it is automatically immediate and it has an intense, profoundly personal (yet undefined) value-meaning to the individual experiencing it.

SOLO-International Op-Ed: A Second Declaration of Independence
When in the course of human affairs it becomes necessary for citizens to break the political chains that hitherto have bound them, and to reclaim the individual sovereignty which is their birthright, it is opportune and appropriate for them to declare the causes which have impelled them to self-liberation. We, the freedom-loving citizens of the United States of America, choose to do so at this historic moment.

May 10, 1013 — Several days ago Amanda Berry escaped from a house of horrors where she’d been held as a kidnapped sex slave since 2003, along with two other women and her daughter, who was born of one of the rapes she suffered. The details of this shocking crime disgust all decent people and the monster responsible should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
