*Obamacare seeks to regulate pizza
Meanwhile, The News’ “news”
*Obama open to [immigration] deal, WashPo, p. 1A – What a magnificent statesman! A true leader! As if he and Holder aren’t going to do whatever they want once a “deal” is struck. Recall Dear Leader has “a pen and a phone.”That angle — absent here.
*[State] House panel to probe West panel, p. 3A – Good RINO, Joe Straus! Good, good RINO! … Here’s the meat from DMN Dem scribe “3-Dub Jr.” Garrett: “… the administration of Gov. Rick Perry and the [GOP] Legislature have not adopted specific measures to keep something like it from occurring again. [Vote Democrat!!]” … Not noted: eight state agencies had oversight at West before it blew up.
— The Department of Public Safety
— Texas Division of Emergency Management
— Emergency Management Council
— The Office of the Texas State Chemist
— Texas Commission on Environmental Quality
— Texas Department of Agriculture
— Department of State Health Services
— State Fire Marshal’s Office
But at The News, only MORE job-killing, top-down regs will do. They absolutely view this story as a political winner in Turning Texas Blue.
*Editorial page, p. 16A – It’s Celebrate Pete Seeger Day! A memorial cartoon, a sappy Letter to the Editor and a “Hit” from “Lovey Howell’s” crew in Hits and Misses! And none of ‘em mention he was a long-time Communistand fan of Joseph Stalin! The EdBoard eases past that stink-pile by calling it “spread[ing] the gospel of … the integrity of working people.” The mooshy Letter sees it as learning that “working collectively trumps exclusivity a thousand times over.” I must say, they’ve got Marx down pat!
*Attorney cites [dead Frisco] boy’s health, p. 1B – So what’s with The News’ 2014 domestic-violence body count – now at 2 women, 0 men, 2 children? Are we s’posed to cheer for a particular “team?” … Uh oh. It sez here this boy “was born … with a brain cyst and microcephaly” and was “a special needs child who had other medical conditions.” He obviously should have been aborted. Look for Hacki Floyd to step in soon: “See what happens when malformed fetuses are allowed to survive! Mothers get charged with murder!!”
*Activism was [Adelfa Callejo’s] life and love, Olivera column, p. 7B – Yeah. We know. Believe me, we know. … Scu’ me, how long may we expect this bandwagon cortege to roll on? Today, race journalist Mercedes Olivera gets a shot. (And I don’t think it’s her first.) Of course, missing again today is any balance concerning Ms. Callejo’s life, much of which may be described as divisive and controversial. (See MALDEF below.) … (Reminder: this observer is about liberal bias in The DMN. Nothing personal toward the late Ms. Callejo. RIP. Just looking for atruer picture here.)
Long but telling:
