JK Rowling posted 11 tweets on X designed to test a new Scottish law against insulting someone from a protected group. 

Rodney Dangerfield was not available for comment, but I have a feeling he would have supported this action.

I have no doubt a similar type of law will be presented here, either at the state or federal level, at some point.

EXPOSED: White House Sends Different Messages on English- and Spanish-Language Accounts

Ah, the White House is imitating Muslim leaders like Mahmoud Abbas, saying (well, tweeting) one thing in English and something totally different in Arabic. A time-honored tradition continues.

NASA has posted an Eclipse Explorer for the solar eclipse on April 8, if people would find that helpful. This will be the third solar eclipse I've had a chance to witness, and the only one so far that wasn't at totality in my location.

This, in a country that was a focal point of the Enlightenment.

Well, keep in mind, mathematically speaking, a 33% increase in a risk ratio of 0.002 is....0.0026. Those are made up numbers, made to point out that if your risk is low, taking a PPI may still be safe for you. 

However, Biden was never all there.....and he is so clearly in Dementialand that he should be removed now.

If math is racist--which I do not accept a priori and actually consider it the most egalitarian area of information--then I will be racist until the day I die. 

Not against you; practicing for when someone levies that against me.

Can they be any more blatantly pro-criminal and anti-business?

St. Louis mayor wants to hold 'business owners accountable' for violent crimes near stores

We have a lot of violence around convenience stores and gas stations,” Jones said of St. Louis. “So how can we hold those business owners accountable and also bring down crime? Some of the things we’re already doing, we’re finding that other mayors are doing as well.

I've never read it, but I cannot imagine that even Atlas Shrugged envisioned that level of societal insanity.

In a sweeping judgment late Monday, Judge Benjamin Beaton of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Kentucky ordered the Federal Highway Administration to stand down on the rules, which the agency finalized in November. The ruling represents a major victory for the State of Kentucky, which challenged the regulations alongside 21 other states.

This is the kind of garbage you get when people who don't know anything, and think they know everything, and are incapable of miniscule amounts of research make policy.

Exclusive: White House directs NASA to create time standard for the moon

We already have a "standard" time for the moon, and everything in space.

It's called.

But it's centered in England and so therefore RACIST

So when will someone make a complaint about imams making hate speech about Jews?

And will that person be charged instead of the imams?
