Our Wacky World—5/2/2015

Pam Geller decided to tackle the dangerous terrorists in our subways. And then some pesky liberals came along. The good news—the MTA decided to ban all political advertising.

Another day, another idiot from the DEA smoking something:
"DEA warns Utah lawmakers that legal pot could lead to stoned rabbit attacks"
Rabies would be more likely. Really reaching, aren't they? Sort of like religious fanatics. (Smell The Truth)

The increasingly irrelevant Dr. Oz continues his downward spiral into bogusland:
"...on Tuesday’s installment of The Dr. Oz Show. Oprah discovery Mehmet Oz will welcome famed psychic medium John Edward"
'So, basically, we had John on the show because I’m all about learning. I’ve always liked the guy. He seems authentic, not at all like a charlatan. I’ve learned in my career that there are times when science just hasn’t caught up with things, and I think this may be one of them.'
Remember, the more intelligent and educated you are the easier it is to fool yourself. Thanks for confirming that, doc. (Dispatches From The Culture Wars)

How to start a "riot" in Baltimore:
"...if I were a Douglas student that just got trapped in the middle of a minefield BY cops without any way to get home and completely in harm's way, I'd be ready to pop off, too."
Works every time. (Mother Jones)

Remember the pick-up artist who said rape should be legal on private property? Here's his latest display of wisdom:
"If a woman cuts her hair to a short length, or shaves it outright in a Skrillex haircut, we can now confidently say that she is making herself appear less fertile, less beautiful, and less healthy. A woman cutting off healthy hair is one step away from literal cutting of her skin with a sharp object, because both behaviors denote a likely mental illness"

Federal intelligence apparatus types are unhappy about the future of data encryption:
"Why do you think Apple and Google are doing this? It's because the public is demanding it. A public does not want an out-of-control surveillance state"
"Apple and Google don't have coercive power. District attorneys do, the FBI does, the NSA does, and to me it's very simple to draw a privacy balance when it comes to law enforcement and privacy: just follow the damn Constitution. And because the NSA didn't do that and other law enforcement agencies didn't do that, you're seeing a vast public reaction to this."
Emphasis added. (The Register)
