Daily Scoreboard: March 31, 2014

1. From New York magazine: "School immunization data for the 2012-13 school year obtained by Daily Intelligencer from the New York State Department of Health shows that some 245 New York City private schools fell short of the 95 percent vaccination rate which experts say prevents measles from spreading — an effect known as "herd immunity." Of those schools, 125 had rates below 90 percent, and 37 fell below 70 percent. The nine private schools with the lowest rates — between 41.5 percent and 18.4 percent — were so underimmunized that if any one of them somehow seceded and became a Sealand-style micro-nation, it would literally have had the worst measles vaccination rate in the world, according to WHO numbers."

Our moral, intellectual and cultural superiors have re-invented the Incan tradition of dying of childhood diseases. Well played.

Darwinism lives! (Well, dies.)

GOOD.

2. From Robert Stacy McCain, a round-up of perversion by female teachers and the like. His point: "Feminism means equality, and radical ideologues aim to make women equally deviant, equally perverse, equally abnormal, so that women can equally molest young girls and boys."

Give them the life sentences a Jerry Sandusky gets earns.

EVIL.

3. From Jeff Yang of the Wall Street Journal, a defense of Stephen Colbert's “Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever” tweet: "But the limitations of Twitter as a stand-alone mechanism for advancing social change and disruptively progressive conversation have been laid bare. And as rapidly as it rose, the day of the triumphalist trending tag is seemingly coming to a close. Twitter is a force multiplier and a sample booster, but where Asian Americans are concerned, it seems clear that hashtag activism is clearly #NotYourAllinOneSolution."

No, the problem is creeps like Colbert seize only on conservative malaprops and stereotypes to advance a communist agenda (no more mincing -- it is what it is). In his piece, Jeff Yang rips Rush for doing the same thing and blasts the Redskins owner for somehow buying off Medal of Honor recipients to point out the name does not offend Indians.

Perhaps it is projection. Jeff Yang has built his career on being an "Asian" not necessarily as an actual journalist. His employer should investigate whether he was bought off as he claims the Navajo Code-talkers were. If he sees Marines who fought at Iwo Jima (and elsewhere) as tokens, perhaps it is guilt.

The Scorekeeper understands humor. Having worked on a dairy farm for a year, the Scorekeeper also understands bullshit.

EVIL.

4. Tweet of the day:
Who said Canadians were boring?

GOOD.

5. From the Daily Caller: "Report: Obama administration released 68,000 convicted criminal aliens last year."

Given the number of Democratic-controlled inner cities run by gangs, this should surprise no one. Gun control, not gang control because fear and intimidation keep people in line -- not to mention how the money flows.

EVIL.

6. From CNBC: Deadline for Obamacare. Only "6 million" of the 47.6 million who were labeled "uninsured" have signed up and 80% of them get taxpayer subsidies.

It's another mooch from the grifters who vote Democratic.

EVIL.

7. From Politico: 'Veteran Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn said Monday that the White House could be doing more to help Democrats in November’s midterms."

Yes, resign.

GOOD.

8. From Real Clear Politics: "Just 32 percent of military veterans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan approve of the job Barack Obama is doing as president, according to a new poll from the Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation. In a related question, only 42 percent of those surveyed said they believe Obama is a good commander-in-chief of the military.” Forty eight percent said he is not. Veterans were asked a similar question about former President George W. Bush. Sixty-five percent said they felt he was a good commander-in-chief, while 28 percent responded he was not."

 

Remember when we had a president you could trust?

Just as the Scorekeeper can detect bullshit, so can most military men.

GOOD.

9. From the Associated Press: "If the world doesn't cut pollution of heat-trapping gases, the already noticeable harms of global warming could spiral out of control, the head of a United Nations scientific panel warned Monday."

Does no one at the AP understand photosynthesis? If so, why does this organization believe water vapor and carbon dioxide -- the largest "heat trapping gases" are pollutants?

Besides, since when is a bureaucracy headed by a Keynesian economist a "scientific panel"? Given the numerous factual errors in its 2007 report, the IPCC is to science what Obamacare is to medicine.

EVIL.

10. Twit of the day:
Then again, he confused Woody Allen with Frank Sinatra.

EVIL.

11. From Breitbart: "On Friday, West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin (D) vetoed a measure that would protect unborn children from abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act was passed with overwhelming bipartisan support by the Democrat-led state legislature."

In a year when Democrats fear losing the Legislature, they cuynicxally vote for a bill that they know their governor will veto.

EVIL.

12. From the National Journal:
Bracing for a rough midterm-election outcome, Democrats aren't waiting until Election Day to start blaming one another for the party's problems. Anticipating the possibility that Republicans will flip the Senate, the finger-pointing game is already underway between the party's warring factions.

Earlier this month, Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas argued liberals had successfully purged so-called squishy moderates from the Democratic Party's ranks — even if those same lawmakers had helped the party retain conservative-leaning Senate and House seats. From the middle, the centrist Democratic think tank Third Way has become more outspoken in criticizing progressive leaders, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, for advocating an agenda that will compromise the party's ability to attract moderate voters.

The public spats between outside groups are nothing compared with the private finger-pointing over who could be responsible if Republicans ride a political wave this year. The moderate wing is prepared to blame the party for avoiding centrist initiatives like free-trade deals and entitlement reform, while the Left will argue party leaders didn't do enough to protect benefits.
Don't Bogart that popcorn, my friend. Pass it over to me.

GOOD.

13. From White House spokesman Jay Carney: "Six out of ten people without insurance can get insurance for $100 a day or less."

Let's see, $100 a day times 365 days is $36,500 a year.

And four out of ten pay more?

Gee, wonder why Democrats are having such a hard time this year.

GOOD.

Final score: EVIL 7, GOOD 6.

  1. 7. Clyburn is an idiot and living in a bubble. The more Obama goes out there to help, the worse off those he's helping will be.

    8. Uh no I don't miss him. I don't want his brother either.

    9. Wasn't environmental destruction supposed to have killed us all by now, several times over?

    10. I find it ironic that Golden Girls reruns beat Rowan Sinatra's show in the ratings, because Rowan Sinatra's own ratings is skewed to the older demographic.

    12. Actually in the longer term, the big problem for the Democrats is that they've assembled a Star Wars bar scene coalition based purely on stoking the resentment of and hatred towards "traditional white bread America" and the red team political party for whom they mostly vote. What particular beef you have with traditional white bread America depends on what particular part of the Democrat oddball kept together by KKKrazy Glue coalition you're part of. Once Republicans are a political non-entity, the constituent parts of the Democrat oddball coalition will start having it out with each other. We already see this in places where Republicans are not and no threat to be a political factor, Minneapolis and California.

    13. That isn't far off from the real cost of an ObamaDontCare-compliant policy for a lot of people.

  2. 1--"Our moral, intellectual and cultural superiors have re-invented the Incan tradition of dying of childhood diseases." Well, IN THEIR OPINION, which is clearly unwarranted.

    2--Feminists: Women can be as bad as men. And should. Oy! and Vey!

    3--For me, it was the poultry farm...

    8--Except for those 32%.

    10--Lefties are sooooooooooooooo smaaaaaaaaaaaaaart...they tell us.

    11--And stupid, too.

    12--"From the middle, the centrist Democratic think tank Third Way..." It's only 'centrist' when looked at from the far left. (LOOOOOOOVE your comment! My popper and recliner await.)

    13--You are so kind to assume Carney knows what he's talking about, Don.

  3. Dear Don: I tried to send you some e-mails at your work account. They got bounced. You should talk to your tech people.

  4. "Just 32 percent of military veterans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan approve of the job Barack Obama is doing as president...

    And 98% of that 32% are slackers in the Chair Force, the branch of the US military primarily populated by leftists and Luap Nor types. I respect our fighting men and women, but the Chair Force makes it tough to admire them.

  5. "for advocating an agenda that will compromise the party's ability to attract moderate voters"

    Not for having those views, but to altering the public to those views. As a democrat, it's ok to lie, cheat and steal, just don't tell anyone.

  6. #12 Centrist moderate Democratic think tank: Does that mean they're only socialists and not out-and-out Communists?

  7. #10 Oh dear. Whenever I see Farrow anymore, Kate of Small Dead Animals moniker for Justin Trudeau as O Shiny Pony automatically appears.
    Do you think it means anything, doc?
