Fighting Terrorism via Twitter

I’m speechless from the sheer monumental stupidity of this. Believing that a goddamn hashtag does anything at all is so incredibly moronic I just don’t know what to say.

It’s debatable whether or not we should have any involvement in the Nigeria kidnapping thing. But freaking hashtags don’t do a damn thing. It doesn’t even ‘raise awareness’.

If you want to accomplish something put the military in, with whatever forces they need and a mission that says rescue the girls if possible, kill that madman and destroy Boko Haram no matter what.

Anything else is feel-good-about-yourself crap.

BTW, if our military thinks we can do something positive, and if the Nigerians will let us in, I have no problem, even if we lose some of our people. This is a very clear cut case of evil. If we can, kill the bastards.

Edit: I’d forgotten this. Here’s a employee of the state department with some of her own hashtag diplomacy about the Ukraine.

Sheer lunacy.

I’ve got nothing against individuals that do this. But NOT the U.S. government.

FEC wants to regulate free speech

The chairman of the Federal Election Commission warned Wednesday that officials at the agency want to start regulating the media, despite a longstanding congressional ban on doing so.

“The impulse to regulate the media within the FEC is alive and well,” FEC Chairman Lee E. Goodman told FoxNews.

Oddly, if you search that quote on CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times or the Huffington Post you get nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Virginian running for congress sends hate tweets

Mike Dickinson, a Democrat from Virginia who is running for Congress, recently tweeted a series of hateful comments about the NRA and its supporters

“pure trash”

“very low IQs”

“descendants of the KKK”

Hey asshole, I’m a member of the NRA. I’m a college CS and Math professor – what do you do? I loathe the KKK and similar racist organizations.

You called me “pure trash”. You’ve got me.

WA Lawmaker doesn’t like the press, wants to fine them

A Washington newspaper is crying foul after a state senator proposed making the paper pay a $150,000-a-year fine for being “one of the top polluters in the county.” It just so happens that the lawmaker, state Sen. Don Benton, had been the subject of a series of critical articles in the same newspaper.

Fox News

Imagine that, a politician trying to retaliate against the truth.

Harry Reid says ‘never called Obamacare horror stories lies’

Mr. President, the junior senator from Wyoming has come to the floor several times recently talking about the fact that examples that he and other Republicans have given dealing with Obamacare — examples that they think are bad — I’ve called lies. Mr. President, that is simply untrue. I have never come to the floor to my recollection and never said a word about any of the examples that Republicans have given regarding Obamacare and how it’s not very good.

Apparently Harry’s never heard of video recording.

YouTube and about a million other places on the web.

Whatever you think of his politics, aren’t you Demos embarrassed by the fact that he’s such as absolute ass.
