Humanity Getting Dumber We Are DEVO — Stanford University geneticist Dr. Gerald Crabtree reports that the human race is losing its cognitive capabilities and becoming more emotionally unstable, a claim that should be apparent to anyone who has followed the last election or has attempted to watch David Letterman.
Or read the Washington Post recently for that matter.
Crabtree wants every man, woman and mutant on this planet to know the truth about devolution.
“They tell us that we lost our tails, evolving up from little snails. I say it’s all just wind in sails,” Crabtree said.
He then spelled it out: “We are devo. D.E.V.O.”
Actually, he didn’t say that, which something that we feel is important to note as a Washington Post reporter might read it here and report that he did.
Popular culture figured devolution out way back in 1977. Here’s the video:
The Washington Post was once the most respected newspaper in the world. It’s ombudsman, Patrick Pexton, just apologized for a story it ran claiming that Sarah Palin was hired by Al Jazeera America.
Reporter Suzi Parker read the claim on the satirical website “The Daily Current” without realizing it was a joke. It went past her editor Melinda Henneberger as well.
Pexton will be leaving the paper March 1 and there are no indications that he will be replaced. Miss Parker and Miss Henneberger, however, appear to be remaining.
Hat tip Breitbart.com
BTW, the Post, which is a mouthpiece for the Democratic Party, hence a voice of the “little guy”, “working man” etc. has just laid off several dozen people on the business end. What hypocritical greed. Why couldn’t its filthy rich Democrat owners take a cut in pay to save these jobs, hmmm?
In other news, the Post is looking to sell its iconic downtown office building.
Why not just close the whole thing? When it reports as fact things that were written to be unbelievable, and laughable, fiction, then there is not much point to its existence as a reliable conveyor of information.
FEMA Closed Due To Weather — A sign seen taped 10:30 a.m., today, Nov. 7, at the FEMA Center at 6581 Hylan Blvd. on Staten Island. One presidential candidate thought FEMA needed major reforms and possible replacement. One thought it was just peachy. Well, you know which one won so you know what we are stuck with.
Congresswoman Yvette Clarke is a Democrat who represents New York’s 11th District which is in Brooklyn. She consented to an interview with Steve Colbert of Comedy Central and when prompted about what she would do if she could return to 1898 when the borough became part of New York City said that she would free the slaves from the Dutch.
Mugabe Tourism Ambassador UNbelievable — Zimbabwe “President” Robert Mugabe, who is apparently that nation’s president for life and a known tyrant, has been named an “international tourism ambassador” by the UN World Tourism Organization.
The useful life of the United Nations, assuming it ever had one, has ended.
Springfield Road Curb Cuts — The curb cuts installed on Springfield Road in Springfield, Pa. back in the early ’90s to assist those in wheelchairs in accordance with the American With Disabilities Act are now (April 2012) being ripped up at much expense and disruption so “tactile detectable warning” tiles can be added for blind people using canes.
This isn’t going to make it easier for those in wheelchairs and one suspects that the vast majority of blind people — like the vast majority of Americans — would rather our budget deficits be address rather than create expensive feel-good, make-work projects.
Can Panetta/Obama Keep A Secret? — To any readers who wondered how Secty of Defense Leon Panetta could let “slip” that Israel would take out Iran’s Nuke Facility in April,May, or June, check this out:
Chinese Hired To Rebuild U.S. Infrastructure — Reader TomC submitted this link to an ABC News story about how Chinese firms and workers are being used for infrastructure replacement projects rather than American ones.
So union members, how is that hope and change working for ya?
High School Diploma Requirement Might Violate Fed Law
Happy New Year business owners.
In its continuing crusade to discourage entrepreneurship and keep competents from returning to the workforce, the Obama-packed Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has aired the opinion that requiring a high school diploma may violate the American With Disabilities Act.
The “informal discussion letter” posted on the EEOC’s website, Dec. 1, says businesses may be lawbreakers if a high school diploma requirement “‘screens out’ an individual who is unable to graduate because of a learning disability”.
That’s right! If you greedy pigs won’t hire someone who can’t be taught by the “caring professionals” of our educational establishment, Obama is going to bring down his mighty sword of justice on your head.
