Instapundit OBAMA SAYS HE DOESN’T WATCH ENOUGH TV, AND THE NEW YORK TIMES TACITLY ADMITS IT CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF THE MEMORY HOLE. I’m not sure which is more damning, the following passage… In his meeting with the columnists, Mr. Obama indicated that he did not see enough cable television to fully appreciate the anxiety after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, and made clear that he plans to step up his public arguments. Republicans were telling Americans that he is not doing anything when he is doing a lot, he said. …Or the fact that at least at the moment, it’s since been expunged from the Times’ article, even though it was quoted last night by blogger Tom Maguire, the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple, the Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto, and CNN’s Brian Stelter.

A Conservative Guide for Good Governance Legislators at all levels face a challenge in making sure that their legislation and policies represent good governance which utilizes reason, common sense and first principles. Some common sense goals of politicians should be to limit the control of the government over individuals, allow flexibility for bureaucrats to meet measurable results and to terminate programs that fail to meet their stated goals. If politicians could employ some simple criteria, the government would work in a manner more consistent with the consent of the governed. Below is a good, yet not comprehensive guide to protect the taxpayer through good governance. First, the President of The Heritage Foundation, Ed Feulner, laid out some first principals for legislators in his book Getting America Right. The following six questions should be asked before a politician embarks on implementing an idea or creating legislation:

The Raw Story Science ‘Hobbit’ human fossils actually normal human with Down syndrome, say scientists The so-called “Hobbit” human skeleton found in 2004 and heralded as a previously unknown human… Toledo’s algae bloom in line with climate projections The Corner “You could have said that yesterday,” a friend wrote on social media, slapping down someone who was inveighing against the alleged racism of an accomplished sports figure who had died a few hours earlier. “You could have said it tomorrow.” Out of respect, we honor the dictum “Speak no ill of the dead” — for a day. Mourning, we might extend the period to months, or even years, but to maintain that attitude in perpetuity would mean that we suspended forever our judgment of precedents: We could never criticize any action if it was taken by someone who, being human, went on to die. Pamela Geller and the participants who were targeted by gunmen at the “Draw Muhammad” event she organized outside Dallas earlier this month are still very much living, thank God. In discussing the aborted atrocity, some of her defenders have insisted, however, that she merited the “Nil nisi bonum” treatment all the same.

Obama’s State of the Union Address Summary President Obama peppered his State of the Union address to Congress and the nation with facts, which were mostly right but sometimes cherry-picked, strained or otherwise misleading. He said “there are about 2 million Americans working right now” because of last year’s stimulus bill. But his own economic advisers say the total could be as little as 1.5 million, and independent estimates range down to as low as 800,000.He quoted the Congressional Budget Office as saying health care legislation could “bring down the deficit by as much as $1 trillion” over the next 20 years. 40 maps that explain the world Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to. So when we saw a post sweeping the Web titled "40 maps they didn't teach you in school," one of which happens to be a WorldViews original, I thought we might be able to contribute our own collection. Some of these are pretty nerdy, but I think they're no less fascinating and easily understandable. A majority are original to this blog, with others from a variety of sources.
