Dear God, Help Us

Or more specifically, the children of Thailand. From the AP on Jon Benet Ramsay:

Karr told police they had fallen in love with each other, Suwat said. “She was very beautiful. So he kidnapped her and killed her by accident,” the police chief added.

“Suwat” would be THE POLICE. No wonder Thailand has been a sex-trafficking wasteland .

UPDATE: Mercifully, I may have read to fast; a reader:

I don’t see how you can read the Thai policeman’s comments as being sympathetic to Karr. He’s repeating what the guy said, not saying the guy should be released or absolved of his crime if what he says is true. In fact, later in the article Suwat says he is dangerous. Thailan may not prosecute child sex crimes as well as it ought to, but you can’t read Suwat’s statements in this article as condoning Karr’s actions.

Biden Can’t Tax the Rich

Joe Biden’s tax plan is based on a deathless myth: that taxes are actually paid in economic terms by those upon whom they legally fall. The obviousness of this nonsense is clear enough if you put the proposition into plain English: “Don’t you worry, now, we’re not going to raise taxes on you, Bubba — ... Read More
