More gun control, more murders.
Perhaps that was the plan all along.
2. From Yahoo: "Pakistani baby accused of attempted murder. [SNIP] Baby Mohammad Musa along with his father and other family members was booked for throwing rocks at gas company officials in the working-class Ahata Thanedaran neighbourhood on February 1, the family's lawyer Chaudhry Irfan Sadiq told AFP Friday."
The police suspended the arresting officer. The baby is 9 months old.
3. From the Free Beacon: "CIA Official Dies in Apparent Suicide."
Suicide. As befits our foreign policy.
4. From the moderator of a world women's summit: “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?”
From Hillary Rodham Clinton: “Well, I really see — that was good — that’s why he wins prizes. Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton. Some of what hasn’t been finished may go on to be finished, so when President Obama asked me to be Secretary of State I agreed.”
It's a simple question and she cannot answer it. She's an idiot. Do not confuse ruthlessness with intelligence. She married a bright politician and rode his coattails to office.
Just like Lurleen Wallace with one major difference. Mrs. Wallace wasn't an idiot and didn't really want the power.
The cracks in Mrs. Clinton's bubble begin to show.
5. From Mother Jones: " 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' Is About Obama's Terror-Suspect Kill List, Say the Film's Directors."
There was a time when Hollywood would have protested such abuse of power.
Now these fascists revel in it.
6. From Fox News, a thumbsucker worthy of CNN:
An exodus this year on Capitol Hill is creating a void in Congress, with some of its most experienced and skillful lawmakers suggesting the partisan gridlock is finally taking a toll.
The announcement this week by GOP Rep. Dave Camp, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, marked the eighth committee chairmen to retire this year from Congress -- four in the House and four in the Senate. In total, 23 House members are retiring this year. In the Senate, Oklahoma GOP Sen. Tom Coburn has resigned.
The 12-term congressman’s decision not to seek re-election came just several days after Rep. Mike Rogers, another Michigan Republican and House committee chairman, said he also would leave in January.
Though Camp said he didn’t want to make the “mistake” of staying too long, as he had seen other congressional members do, he left with essentially no support for his plan to revise the country’s complicated tax code.
Roger purportedly cast some of the blame for gridlock on Republican infighting, saying an “all-or-nothing wing” has slowed conservative progress.Let's see, we are losing the politicians who led us to $17 trillion in national debt and $127 trillion in unfunded liabilities.
Too bad we have to pay these incompetents a pension.
7. From the Associated Press: "LPGA Tour boss 'disappointed' with Golf Digest. LPGA Tour Commissioner Mike Whan weighed in Friday on Golf Digest's provocative cover featuring Paulina Gretzky."
The Scorekeeper was disappointed as well. This was the shot they used:
This was the shot they should have used.
The Scorekeeper just subscribed so he can cancel his subscription the next time the magazine offends the good ladies at the LPGA.
Maurice Chevalier was right. Thank heaven for little girls.
8. From the Associated Press: "Kansas legislators gave final approval Saturday to a bill that would nullify city and county gun restrictions and ensure that it's legal across the state to openly carry firearms, a measure the National Rifle Association sees as a nationwide model for stripping local officials of their gun-regulating power."
West Virginia did this in March.
9. Weekend tweets.
@washingtonpost @instapundit The power to selectively tax is unAmerican -- and corrupt But hey Johnny gave $2600 to 19 congressmen Get him!

10. From the New York Daily News: "EXCLUSIVE: Bronx prosecutor bashed and barred from courtroom for misconduct. Assistant District Attorney Megan Teesdale was banished from Bronx Judge John Wilson’s courtroom after failing to reveal evidence that would have freed a man held at Rikers Island on bogus rape charges."
Make her serve a rape sentence.
11. From Robert Stacy McCain: "#RapeCulture: Fourth Boy Says Teacher Told Him: ‘This Stays Between Us’."
She's young. Pretty. Blond. Your fantasy in high school. But that's the thing. It was supposed to be a fantasy, not a reality. Abuse of power in four little words: This stays between us.
She cheapens sex. They all do. Our man McCain details a string of women who molest their students.
Make her serve a rape sentence. Make them all.
12. From the London Daily Mail: "Woman caught drunk driving with a HAMSTER on her lap... and cops have put the rodent into protective custody."
To serve and protect hamsters.
Could you imagine the rodent services hearing?
It was terrible, your honor. She put me in this wheel and made me run and run and run all day long for her amusement.
13. From Daily Caller: "According to a Daily Caller analysis of the 2013 Annual Report to Congress on White House Staff, the most recent available data on White House pay, the White House paid women an estimated 11.8 percent less than men in 2013."
Not mentioned, of course, is whether women take the risks or have the skills men do. More fun with numbers by propagandists posing as journalists.
14, From the Associated Press: "At the prodding of business organizations, House Republicans quietly secured a recent change in President Barack Obama's health law to expand coverage choices, a striking, one-of-a-kind departure from dozens of high-decibel attempts to repeal or dismember it. Democrats describe the change involving small-business coverage options as a straightforward improvement of the type they are eager to make, and Obama signed it into law. Republicans are loath to agree, given the strong sentiment among the rank and file that the only fix the law deserves is a burial."
Be careful of believing the reporting of a unionized company that pays no taxes.
15. Mickey Rooney, RIP. Lovable actor. As Ray Davies wrote in his song, Celluloid Heroes, "If you stamped on Mickey Rooney, he would still turn 'round and smile."
Eight wives beginning with Ava Gardner, concluding with Jan Chamberlin, his widow after 35 years of marriage.
Yes, he got his three score and ten in. He shall be missed.
16. From John Ellis Bush, the Jeb of the Bush clan: Illegal immigration is an act of love.
Well, they do screw us.
17. From Yahoo: "Pro-Russians seize state buildings in eastern Ukraine."
Hitler moved on a weak Neville Chamberlain. Putin moves on Barack Obama. This will not end pleasantly.
18. From the Smoking Gun: Al Sharpton was an informant for the FBI.
Not the KGB?
19. Oh and don't piss the Scorekeeper off with your liberal baloney on Monday.
@WVpolicywonk @TroyAndes Odd that a tax exempt corporation complains that corporate taxes are too lowSeriously.
