It’s not enough that Dems have wreaked
havoc on the U.S.; now they’ve set their
sights on the moon. Reps. Donna Edwards
(D, MD) and Eddie Bernice Johnson (D,
TX) have sponsored legislation to create the
Apollo Lunar Landing Sites National
Historical Park to display artifacts left
behind from the Apollo 11 through 17
missions. Or, as the headline in The Hill
puts it, “DEMS PITCH NATIONAL PARK ON
THE MOON.” The bill would permit the
government to accept donations from com-
panies and foreign governments to “provide
visitor services and administrative facilities
within reasonable proximity to the
Historical Park.” In other words, a trillion-
dollar slush fund. What’s next: No-bid
moon contracts for Dem cronies? A lunar
public sector union to clean and manage the
park? Billions of taxpayer money funneled
through far-left organizations to research
lunar warming? Lib scams loony enough to
take them to the moon and back.
“DRIED-OUT ASPARAGUS STIRS A FUSS
IN U. CITY.” That’s the headline on a
front-page story in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, in which the Schnucks grocery
store in St. Louis’s University Park neighborhood was accused of racism. For its
asparagus displaying methods. David Olander,
a member of the University City Human
Relations Commission, visited the store and
was shocked when he came upon the asparagus.
“It was just sitting there dried out,” he declared.
This “was a far cry from the asparagus” he had
seen at the Schnucks about eight miles away, “where it sat in water, looking beautiful,”
he said. After “summoning” the manager, Olander demanded to know if the asparagus
was dry because the store was in a black neighborhood. He followed up by writing letters
to the company CEO. “Schnucks does not discriminate on any level,” responded spokeswoman Lori Willis, who said the asparagus water tray had simply tipped over. It remains
to be seen whether Eric Holder plans to sue on behalf of the Obama Justice Department.
The State Department refused to
beef up security in Benghazi, resulting in the deaths of four Americans.
Here’s what they were spending the
money on instead: boosting their
number of Facebook fans. It’s a sleazy
social network tactic, “buying” fake
fans who will click on an ad with no
further interaction. According to Fox
News, between 2011 and March 2013
the State Department’s Bureau of
International Information Programs
paid more than $630,000 on advertising to swell the number of “likes” on
their four Facebook pages. They went
from 100,000 to over 2 million. The
Regime can’t help but cheat, it’s in
their DNA. Just ask Obama’s millions of
fake Twitter followers.
For five years, researchers have been throwing miniature cocktail parties, complete with
martinis and nicotine, for hundreds of rats.
They wanted to provide science with the
answer to the burning question, “Why do
smokers drink?” NPR reports that a Baylor
College of Medicine study published in the
journal Neuron figured it out. While
nicotine increases dopamine, the brain’s
“pleasure chemical,” the combination of
alcohol and nicotine produces less dopa-
mine. The nicotine-addicted rats end up
drinking more to get a buzz because the nico-
tine apparently blunts the release of dopamine.
So there we have it, settled science. Next up: do
rats prefer martinis shaken or stirred?
