Everybody seems to pass “Liberal Logic” around on the web. Since it is on the web, it must be true. These are my own local versions.
The City Council does not (very wisely I might add) have any redevelopment agency in the city. Therefore the city was not taking property from private citizens via eminent domain and giving it to a preferred developer. The council even put the eminent domain non questionable use on the ballot to make sure that future councils wouldn’t abuse the power it didn’t have.
Now, though, they are proposing giving the property that the existing city hall is on to a preferred developer. So a previous city council used eminent domain to take the property where old city hall is located. Now the city is holding a beauty contest amongst a handful of developers to see who becomes the preferred developer with the city. Now the fact that 50 or so years has intervened between the original taking and the transfer to a preferred developer doe’s change the fact that the city is doing the same thing that it has outlawed by city charter. Logic took a nap or liberalism crept in.
Fire Pits and the AQMD
Newport Beach tries to ban fire pits because smoke is bad. As a result the AQMD thinks that this is such a great idea that they think we should ban them anywhere at any time. Hey, if it good for a little, it must be good for a lot. Another logic nap if you ask me. Reminds me of the Reagan quote: “If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.”
Speaking of subsidizing it, the Boston bombers appear to have gotten well over $100k in welfare payments so that they didn’t have to work. I guess that means that they can go to bomb school during their free time that we paid them for unemployment.
So these wackos allegedly put on their Jihad to kill and maim Americans. Bombs of course are illegal and liberals are surprised that they didn’t follow the wall. Then horror of horrors they found out that they owned guns and they weren’t even registered. So let me get this straight–they owned “unregistered” guns and the solution is more laws, probably because they obeyed existing ones so well. One of the reasons I included “bat control” last column.
Abortionist Kermit Gosnell
Dr. Kermit Gosnell was convicted of murdering three babies. He was only following state senator Barack Obama’s admonition that the mother’s original intent is what is important in the case of an abortion and therefore voted against protections of babies born alive during an abortion. Should have used the twinkie defense. Planned Parenthood is denouncing the brutal murders… oops, maybe they are denouncing the deplorable conditions in the clinic… oops. Well I guess the optimist that I am….
Maybe Obama has the right defense. Have the FDA promoting the change in the law that allows a 15 year old girl to walk into a pharmacy and get the morning after pill. Now if you were on the CDM or Newport Harbor campus and wanted to have a Tylenol, you could not have one without the nurse supervising it or you would get suspended for drug use. But Planned Parenthood is advocating the morning after pill for 15 year olds.
