Free Markets, Free People

Dale’s Observations For 2010-05-19

Oakland city council becomes the first government organization in CA to support the pot legalization initiative. #

Somalis are upset we're trying a pirate. Solution: Simply shoot them out of hand when caught in the act of piracy. #

Why CA is bankrupt: CalPers bennies were assumed to be self-financing…as long as the Dow was at 25,000 by 2009. #

Somalis are upset we're trying one of their guys for piracy. Solution: Shoot them when they're caught in the act. #

Germany bans naked short-selling. Asian markets tumble. "Germany just switched off the financial lights in Europe." #

You'd think that receiving the power to protect the island would require something more dramatic than sipping a delicious beverage. #Lost #

Of COURSE Jack volunteers immediately. Now, he can spend the next 1k years thinking what a wonderful, self-sacrificing guy he is. Ass. #Lost #

Is it just me, or does Jacob make things more difficult than they actually need to be? #Lost #

The thing about Ben is, that he keeps a grudge 'til it's dead. Then he has it stuffed and mounted. #Lost #

Well, we won't be subjected to Zoe's bad acting any more. #Lost #

Delenn is back! #Lost #

Apparently, John didn't actually WANT to talk to Richard. #Lost #

Jack keeps Kate's dirty t-shirt on while he sews her up. He's a really good doctor. #Lost #

Watching Sun and Jin die in the #Lost Recap: You have a child, ass. You're SUPPOSED to leave her. Sure, make your kid an orphan. #

The euro has plummeted against the US dollar, falling below $1.22 for the first time since April 2006. #

Arlen Specter can now be the mean old man who lives on the corner. Every neighborhood needs one. #

Critz still looks like a winner in #PA12 though. #

AP calls #PASen for Sestak. #

In #PA12 Critz is still holding at 57% with 22% of precincts reporting. #

Sestak is now at 51%. You want to hear a "bitter clinger" from Pennsylvania? Watch Arlen Specter's concession speech. #

Current PA-12 Results: Critz (D) – 59.2%, Burns (R) 38.6%. So far…not good. #

Well, I've got to stop twittering for a bit. I've got to take a dog for a walk. And, no, that's not a figure of speech. #

Maybe it's too early to call either race in PA. #

PA House 12: 82 votes counted, Critz (D) leads 86%-0%. Is a disaster looming for Burns!? #

Very first election returns from PA: With 114 votes counted, Sestak leads Specter, 56%-44%. #

I wonder how the election in PA will be affected by the bad weather, and resulting low turnout. #

Everyone seems happy about the #Randslide in KY. Maybe you should curb the triumphalism until you see results from PA, AR, etc. #
