Animal’s Daily Random Tidbits News

1903 Springfield – a classic bolt gun

Be sure to check out Part 3 of my History of Bolt Guns series over at Glibertarians – and if you aren’t reading their morning and afternoon links on the site, you should be.

Here are some random tidbits from today’s news.

Daffy old Uncle Joe Biden is way ahead in the Dem primary polls, but does that really mean anything?  Sean Trende doesn’t think so.  One might point out that at this time in the GOP 2016 season primaries, Jeb! was largely seen as the inevitable nominee.  Maybe because the GOP has a history of nominating the worst possible candidate for any given office?

On that topic:  Al Gore may have invented the Internet in between expeditions seeking the elusive ManBearPig, but Groper Joe apparently was the first to notice global warming.  Take that, Al.

Meanwhile, the President is getting some early shots in at the likely Democrat front-runners.

And, it’s beginning to look like the DNC may be giving the loony old Bolshevik from Vermont the shaft – again.

Feral parrots are taking over America.  I have a simple solution; put a $5.00 bounty on feral parrots, and let American rednecks know they are good to eat.  Problem solved.

Speaking of invasive:  NASA may be looking in the wrong places for evidence of Martian life.  Well, they haven’t found any tharks yet, so…

Philly passed a soda tax, to try to modify people’s behavior more in line with that that city’s Top Men felt was appropriate, you know, for their own good.  (Those paternalistic fucksticks!)  Not surprisingly, it backfired.

That same daffy old Bolshevik from Vermont mentioned above is fond of ranting about how Amazon isn’t paying any income taxes.  Unsurprisingly, given his track record on economic issues, he’s full of shit.

On that note, we return you to your Tuesday, already in progress.
