Thursday Morning Linkslide

Remember my post about the National Labor Relations Board and their meddling (aka, “job-quashing”) in South Carolina? Folks have been looking into the situation, and it would appear that the Obama administration is pulling the strings behind such tactics. It’s amazing how out of step this administration is on so many issues.

Leon Panetta wants to crack down on CIA leaks. Good luck with that, Mr. Panetta. You have to wonder if at least part of this crackdown isn’t due to things like Panetta’s account of things contradicting the White House’s.

The Internet has been a disruptive technology on a worldwide scale (a blogger in his pajamas can have influence formerly reserved for big-name newspaper columnists), and it continues to disrupt. Sorry for the younger crowd, but you could be losing out on snow days. “But the dog ate my Internet connection!”

I have long referred to Apple fans as cultists. I thought I was using hyperbole, but it turns out, I was spot-on. Apple fanaticism is a religion.

Pres. Obama will make a speech this morning. Here are a few things to look for.

Bill Clinton wants a government agency to correct the misinformation and rumors on the Internet. But it’s cool, because he says it will in no way be Orwellian.

And this most definitely isn’t Orwellian, so don’t even think that a federal agency “monitoring” a television station and then tweeting snide comments about it is Orwellian at all. Put that right out of your head. If you know what’s good for you.

Let’s give $1 billion to the Muslim Brotherhood-dominated Egypt regime. They sound like good folks, and we’ve got plenty of money, so I’m sure this isn’t a bad idea at all.

I’ll be resuming my “Oil companies, the root of all evil” series next week, but in the meantime, Mark J. Perry points out that in the first quarter of 2011, Apple had a much higher profit percentage than oil companies. Where are the calls to go after their windfall profits?

Ask not for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for thee, hardcover and paperback books.
