War crimes

This is how insane the United Nations has become:

Both barrels

From Michael Bloomberg's group, quite possibly the dumbest anti-gun ad you will ever see:

No right, just rules

Say, if I didn't know better, I'd think the Washington Post was in the tank for the administration: "Hundreds of rules passed by Obama administration are technically illegal.

Sigh:

EVANSTON, ILL. – Northwestern University will offer “gender-open restrooms” to its students this fall.

“We are trying to be responsive to the needs of all of our students and to be inclusive,” campus spokesman Bob Rowley said in an email to The College Fix. “This is becoming a common occurrence on campuses across the U.S.”

Determined not to make eye contact with anyone on the subway? You’re not alone, but our commutes would be happier if we socialized more, according to a new study.

Flaws and all

Now we know why Anthony Kennedy is the swing vote in all those 5-4 cases:
