Monday's Child is Full of Links

1.  If you want your wallet / purse returned, stock it with sweet baby pix...

2.  The only way to not to play.

3.  Carbon-free sugar?  That's nice.  Wait...what?

4.  "We were trying to give away huge suitcases of free money, but we ran out."  The Administration is trying to blame "cost overruns," when the problem is that Obamacare is incoherent and unsustainable.  The "risk pools" cannot possibly pay for all the people with pre-existing conditions, which is precisely why they didn't have insurance in the first place.  But when insurance companies couldn't insure them, the regime blamed greed.  Now that the government can't insure them either, the regime is trying to blame unexpected cost overruns.  Nice.

5.  Interesting.  Our leftist brethren are upset about the requirement that folks must have an ID to vote.  But they don't seem to have thought enough about the problem of ACA requiring that everyone has a bank account.  For the "unbankable," this is quite a hardship!

6.  Another reason to admire Elon Musk, of Tesla.

7.  We are captives of the federal prison-industrial complex. "A labor union representing 12,000 federal officers who issue immigration documents will join forces...with the union representing deportation agents to publicly oppose a bill overhauling the immigration system that is making its way through the Senate, arguing that the legislation would weaken public safety." 

8.  "An oversight by Congress two decades ago led to the inclusion of models in the H-1B class."  I don't see why this is a problem.  Women who are physically freakish enough to be models should ALL be given green cards, immediately.

9.  Four people (including the LMM) sent me this Dilbert cartoon about clueless PhDs.  I'm sure it's a good thing.

10.  The Whimsy-conomy in energy...

11.  The EXTRA-ordinary business of life...

12.  Interesting.  Even the French think that French movies suck.  Or so it seems.

13.  You won't find THIS on  Hard to tell if it's simply satire, or satirically true.

14.  Earnest young man with guitar case far more likely to score the digits from young ladies.  Which may explain this, as a response from other men.

15.  Council members abstain from vote on abstention...

16.  Young Obamawalker...nevah underestimate the POWAH...of the demand side!

From my favorite "Headline Meme":

1.  "Pregnant woman dies, gives birth, comes back to life"

2.  "Lake seniors drew penises on cars, disciplined." (UPDATE:  this was the original headline.  Someone thought better of it...)

3.  Police:  "Thong Cape Scooter Man" Not Breaking Law

I cannot believe I'm about to help roll out Obamacare... The question was "how do you sell a product to a customer who has no way to pay you?" The answer is...[wait for iiiit] Bitcoin. The government must embrace bitcoin. ;-)

Musk is a mixed bag. He's relying on government contracts and subsidies in 3 major investments.
