You just can’t make this shit up.

What do you think a video game would look like if the Federal Government was in charge of designing it?  Well, wait no longer.  Only the game has been designed by USC, under a $40,000 grant from the NEA, so it really is just a Federal Government design by proxy.  And the theme of the video game?

Walden Pond.

Yes, really.

I’m certain this will suck nine kinds of ass, because, frankly, Walden (the book) totally sucked ass.  For a couple of scorching take-downs of this wretched liberal claptrap, see:

Drowning In Walden Pond

Wal-Dumb: A Review of Henry David Thoreau’s Walden

Now, if the videogame added a first-person-shooter feature so that players could hunt the pathetic liberal cretins shambling around the Waldenverse, then maybe we’d have something to talk about.

Meet the leeches

When you argue with liberals about people mooching off the system and draining the productive wealth of this country, you usually get a response like: “well, that’s just an apocryphal story”, or  “you can’t rely on unsourced anecdotes to prove your point.”

Really?  Here’s two rock-solid, sourced examples:

The first is a copy of a receipt from a grocery store for five 24-packs of Mountain Dew, a half-dozen cold-water lobsters, and two Porterhouse steaks.  Total: $141.78, paid for with FOOD STAMPS.

I mean, seriously?  Who drinks Mountain Dew with steak and lobster?

Snopes verified it, and yes, it’s true, because the guy who bought the stuff has been arraigned in criminal court in Menominee, Michigan for trying to sell it.  Yes, it’s apparently legal to buy these kinds of comestibles with money obtained from the public tit; you just can’t turn around and sell them.  Jeez, heartless conservatives trying to keep a man down for doin’ a little arbitrage action?

But as the Democrats whine, “we can’t allow draconian Republican cuts of even a penny from these absolutely necessary social safety-net programs.”

The second takes a few minutes to watch.  Watch it.  This is the face of the blood-sucking parasite attached to your ass, exsanguinating you as you slave away at an actual … what do they call it?  Oh yeah, a job.

This guy should be taken out into the street and beaten senseless with whatever musical instrument he supposedly plays.  As Judge Judy says: “seventy thousand dollars down the sewer.”

Paging John Galt; Mr. Galt, you have a call.


Sobering thought …

But at least we’ll have fabulous General Tso’s Chicken for lunch every day.  Guess I’d better start watching Firefly again and start brushing up on my Mandarin curses.   Ni ta ma de. Tianxia suoyoude ren dou gai si.

Taking the educators to school

In Which the Inestimable Mr. Denninger Puts Some Effin’ Knowledge to the Education Bureaucracy – And the Math Doesn’t Lie

Public education in this country is a disaster, and anyone not blind can see it:

In New Jersey, students have as many as three chances to pass the state high-school exit exam. That’s right — three. Three chances to earn a passing grade of 50 percent on a test that is written at the middle-school level. Students have three chances to score 50 percent or better on a middle-school-level test in order to graduate high school.

The City of Newark spends about $22,000 per child per year to get these dismal results.

What does the educational bureaucracy say to this staggering indictment of its ability to perform?    Jam its head in the sand: (more…)
