Cruising the Web

Here's an easy cut in the budget we can make - stop paying people out of taxpayer funds for working full time for their unions. Here's another example of NLRB employees who work for their unions on the taxpayer dime.

David Frum exposes the myths behind women in combat. We're already lowering the physical requirements in order to allow women to pass physical tests.

Mary Katharine Ham notices that "every single bit of gun advice Biden gives will get you arrested."

Mort Zuckerman explains why our unemployment situation in the country is far worse than it looks.

If the President wants a real ready-to-go infrastructure project, he could approve the Keystone XL pipeline.

The Census Bureau has decided that Portuguese-descended people are now disadvantaged Hispanics.

Allysia Finley explains how California has become the reverse-Joads. We didn't need a Dust Bowl to explain the numbers of people fleeing the formerly Golden State; instead we just needed complete Democratic control of the state.

Now we're finally seeing the veil lifted a bit from how the Obama administration abuses reporters in order to guarantee positive coverage. They're going to need to pressure a whole lot more reporters as they continue to make false claims about the effects of the sequester. Even some of the more obsequious in the press are having trouble swallowing some of these claims. Even SNL is having fun at Obama's expense.

Jim Geraghty brought together some of the funnier Twitter reactions to the onset of Sequesterocalypse.

Wow! The sequester could be a whole lot worse than we knew. Maxine Waters tells us that it "cost America 170 million jobs." We don't even have that many jobs in the economy. Perhaps total innumeracy among our representatives is why we are in the fiscal mess we're in.

If you're unhinged enough to follow the maniacally laughing Joker's advice, you should definitely be arrested, and should never be trusted with a gun, nor any sharp object that you may hurt yourself with.

Their skin color fits.

Next, blacks would include the "black Irish". The label fits.

Betsy,
Apologies for being off-topic (I hate when that happens), but I know you'll appreciate the update on Menendez, since you reported the rumors. Thank God none of your readers took the rumor too far.

OH...so we assume the hookers are lying when they accuse a Democrat, and assume that they are telling the truth when they later exonerate him?

What did the hooker have to say about the airplane flights and the legislation helping the Senator's buddy?

Really Gahrie? No regret or shame from Betsy or you and other posters here who talk a big game about the Constitution yet said nothing as a proven liar like equitus bashed around Menendez for two weeks for being a "pedophile" and "rapist" based on anonymous sources?
I was accused here of a crime (slander) for saying that Herman Cain was a fake candidate, but this was deemed acceptable?
I never said the "two hookers" were lying before (back when people called them child victims)because I didn't know. And I suppose it's possible they are lying now.
What is clear is that folks here disgraced themselves. I wonder if anyone here has the decency to acknowledge they were wrong.

Mark,

My question, again: Identify ANY Democrat that has demanded that Bob Menendez, child prostitute customer and Democratic Party Senator from New Jersey, step aside and cooperate fully with the current FBI investigation.
