Part of my job is dealing with the Consumer Product Safety Commission when there are any issues with the products my company manufactures. This includes scanning the weekly CPSC recall announcements to see if there are any related competitor products that have been recalled.
I received one of those announcements today. I almost fell out of my chair when I read this title today:
A few questions came to mind:
What is a “Doodlebutt”?
What is a “Magic Growing Fruity Fun Toy,” and how is in any way related to a “Doodlebutt”?
On second thought, I really don’t want to know…

I remembered reading about necklacing in South Africa in the early 90′s. I bet you won’t see anything about it in the Lamestream Media this week….
"According to the Human Rights Commission it is estimated that during the Apartheid period some 21,000 people were killed, however both the UN Crimes against Humanity commission and South Africa's own Truth and Reconciliation Commission are in agreement that in those 43 years the South African Security forces killed a total of 518 people."
Progressives are having conniption fits, sputtering with indignation over growing talk about impeachment as the constitutional remedy for President Obama’s flouting of the law, most prominently in declaring that he will not enforce certain aspects of Obamacare out of his own political convenience. The founders clearly understood the need for a political remedy when an executive behaved outside the bounds of the law.
The talk is both local: (hat tip: Nice Deb)
I think this is from the Fake News.
Police say the 19-year-old defensive lineman followed the victim from his dorm room, grabbed him by the collar, yelled racial slurs and threatened to beat him up.
Washington was arraigned Wednesday and released without bail. His attorney, Daniel Fetterman, says the allegations don’t accurately reflect the events.
The victim is of Asian descent. Washington is black.
The Columbia Spectator reported that Washington recently wrote an op-ed piece for the newspaper in which he said student athletes deserved more respect than they’re given on campus.

We have a very good reason for that sinking feeling in our stomachs over tomorrow’s House Oversight Benghazi whistleblower hearings. Weren’t we all asking ourselves how Clinton was able to ditch the questions and walk away — presumably to begin her 2016 presidential run? Did you find yourself silently mouthing the words, “Ask the question! Why was Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi meeting with Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin?”
From Canada Free Press thinks they have the answer. Call/email/tweet/text/fax the members of the committee. We need to know why Clinton and Obama are obstructing justice and working against the most basic interests of our country.
Do it. Now.
…and read the article.

Cass Sunstein, Obama’s former regulatory czar, wrote an op-ed in Bloomberg News on the 28th assuring us that President Obama is “not committed to equality of outcome but a fair opportunity with decent security.”
He said Obama is interested in updating a “second Bill of Rights” alongside the existing one.
His idea is to model it after Franklin Roosevelt’s economic Bill of Rights. [Obama frequently sees himself as one of the acclaimed presidents and in this case apparently it is Franklin Roosevelt]
Sunstein wrote that Roosevelt believed the Bill of Rights and the Constitution guaranteed ”political rights” but did not assure equality in the pursuit of happiness, thus the need for an economic Bill of Rights.
FDR did not mean to change the Constitution nor did he mean that the SCOTUS should enforce it. His Bill of Rights was a political statement, Sunstein said.
Sunstein emphasized that the national government is not to take control of the means of production to make this happen. However, while claiming Obama does not want to change the Constitution, he makes it clear he wants Congress to change the law.

WAYYYY back in June of 2010, BFH held a contest to create an iOTW dictionary. I woke up this morning with a possible new entry and when I went back through the archive, I found that it had been locked; no new entries were allowed. So, I’m taking the liberty of linking to that post and adding the entry here to see what happens.
Al-lah Gorey: n. Any cautionary tale in which an eco-tistical maniac sells out to islamofascists thereby proving both hypocrisy and greed are what really animate them.
