I never thought of that, Fatwa, but yeah, there’s a plus to being Muslim.

Obamacare hits the SCOTUS today: King v. Burwell. This is the one where we get to find out if words have meaning.

And to all the hand wringing and accusations from the Left on this, I recall a plaque from many years ago (it wouldnt be allowed in today’s workforce) that sat on the desk of a curmudgeonly old buyer which read: “A f*ckup on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part”.

You guys should have read the bill before voting on it. Oops. Too bad, so sad.

Pretty sad that Greg Gutfeld is leaving Fox’s Red Eye. If you didn’t catch his last show, find it somewhere--it was hilarious.

And off to the salt mines.

poof

Happy Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa and Sven!
Great thread-pic. In a way, the second cis-gendered, heteronormative male is the one showing true chivalry, since he is not forcing archaic, patriarchal social constructs on the womyn.

Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize walkback? Norway’s Nobel Peace Prize Committee Replaces Chairman:

The Nobel Peace Prize awarding Norwegian Nobel Committee on Tuesday elected a new chairman to replace Thorbjoern Jagland, whose six-year tenure has been lined with controversies.

Jagland will remain a member of the voting panel but was a contentious leader, attracting criticism for his dual role as committee chairman and head of the European Council when the prize was awarded to the European Union in 2012. His leadership also was clouded by the decision to give the prize to Barack Obama in 2009 after he had just been elected president, and the 2010 prize to the jailed dissident Liu Xiabo drew fury from China.

The former labor politician was replaced by the panel’s deputy chairman, Kaci Kullmann Five, a former conservative party leader. She denied that Jagland’s ousting had anything to do with pressure from China, which froze diplomatic ties to Norway after the 2010 award.

Note she did not deny it had anything to do with Il Douchey’s Nobel.
