What a Slacker!

***I didn't have time to blog yesterday. I know you missed me terribly. :-)

***It's no accident that jobs, economy grow more under GOP governors. 

It's not government, though, that creates jobs. Small business owners, entrepreneurs and innovators are the engine of job creation. It's up to government to help create the environment where jobs can grow.
My fellow Republican governors and I are doing just that. State unemployment figures released this week showed that Republican governors’ pro-jobs, pro-growth, low-tax policies work. In fact, the largest employment gains occurred in states run by Republican governors.

 Read the whole thing.


SethMeyers: A Virginia Tech professor claims he can turn wood-chips into food. However, still no luck with kale.

Fallon: London's famous Globe Theater just announced plans to perform Shakespeare's “Hamlet” in North Korea. “Hamlet” is about a man on a murderous revenge mission inspired by his late father. Kim Jong-Un said, "Where do they come up with this stuff?"
 
Conan: Archeologists have discovered a leather belt believed to be 4,000 years old. So, now we know why Larry King wears suspenders.

Meh.

***Wow, lots of upsets in the NCAA tournament so far.


The Academy is defending its promotion of an atheist event just a week after a Christian cadet was pressured into removing a Bible verse from his personal white board because it allegedly offended non-Christian cadets.
“Ask An Atheist Day” was sponsored by The Freethinkers Club, an Academy approved cadet club. The event was advertised all week on Academy bulletin screens and an official email sent to the Cadet Wing. An invitation was also issued by a cadet to the entire Cadet Wing assembly on Tuesday.
The Air Force Academy bends over backwards to promote an atheist event, but they drop the hammer on Christian-themed activities.
As I reported last week, a cadet “voluntarily” removed a Bible verse he had written on a white board hanging outside his dorm room. “I have been crucified with Christ therefore I no longer live, but Christ lives in me,” the verse from Galatians 2:20 read.
That verse led to a formal complaint from Mikey Weinstein, of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. Exactly two hours and nine minutes after the complaint was filed, the Bible verse was erased.

This makes me sick.
