I’m begining to like Ron Paul, Censor Flag in CA, How Osama really died. Updated.

Ron Paul: Obama Presidency On The Verge Of Being A “Dictatorship”

After a while he’s not going to be satisfied with just our money.

POWER CORRUPTS.

Federal Judge: School can censor student display of American flag

A federal court has ruled that school administrators had the right to order California high school students to remove displays of the American flag from their clothing on Cinco De Mayo.

As one of the commenter’s suggested,” All schools should celebrate San Jacinto Day on April 21 and ban all displays of Mexican colors, flags, or other symbols of Mexican pride–for fear that they would incite violence.”

How many people out there had the chance to vote on last Tuesday? Were any seats on the school committee up? Did you avail yourself of the opportunity to begin cleaning the politically correct, America hating committee members off the board?

Correcting the ‘fairy tale’: A SEAL’s account of how Osama bin Laden really died

First I’ve heard this version, I can’t vouch for its accuracy, but it sounds MUCH more plausible to me.

“There was a choice that night,” Pfarrer told TheDC. “There was a choice to keep the mission secret.” America, Pfarrer explained, could have left things alone for “weeks or months … even though there was evidence left on the ground there … and use the intelligence and finish off al-Qaida.”

But Obama’s announcement, he said, “rendered moot all of the intelligence that was gathered from the nexus of al-Qaida. The computer drives, the hard drives, the videocasettes, the CDs, the thumb drives, everything. Before that could even be looked through, the political decision was made to take credit for the operation.”

Especially that part. Given that al-Qaida depended on couriers to communicate, the time lag worked in our favor.  Obama is a ass. (OK, my mother just said that).

Update:The Navy has issued a statement that Pfarrer’s book is completely false, they don’t usually do that. I’ll post the link, decide for yourself. Guess it’s a good thing I didn’t vouch for it’s accuracy.

Special Ops Commander Says Book on SEAL Raid That Killed Bin Laden Is ‘a Lie’

Story in NY Magazine about a longevity study of Askenazi Jews (h/t DINORightMarie at the Tip Line):

An Einstein study published in August asked whether the SuperAgers, over the course of their lives, had better health habits than the general population.

The answer was no; their habits were, if anything, worse. They smoked as much or more than others and were no better about diet or exercise. Tommy Kahn described his father’s lifelong eating habits as “lamb chops one night, steak the next.” Exercise was sporadic and mild. “Healthy living can get you past 80,” says [Dr. Nir] Barzilai, “but not to 100.” Something else is at play. When asked what they themselves thought it might be, the participants offered such explanations as genes, luck, and family history. God, says Barzilai, finished last.

My favorite “Jewish” joke in the article:

At his checkup, Schwartz asks the doctor, Do you think I’ll live to 100? I don’t smoke or drink or eat rich food or have sex with loose women.”

“So why do you want to live to 100?”
