My Top 5 Must Reads of the Day 6/29/10

  1. Five Gun Salute

    WSJ Editorial

    Judicial liberals have been discovering the virtues of legal precedent now that conservatives are finally winning a few cases at the Supreme Court, but in yesterday's major gun rights case that all went out the window. The four liberal Justices rejected a 2008 landmark precedent as well as one of their own bedrock Constitutional principles. 
    Liberals changing their tune for political expediency?!  NO WAY!

  2. By Gov. Bob McDonnell (R-Va.) (The Hill)

    Waiting for our administration was a Virginia budget with an unprecedented $4.2 billion deficit, a politically divided General Assembly and the toughest economy in modern Virginia history. ... Remarkably, even in these tough times, we will likely realize a small budget surplus at the end of this fiscal year.
    Funny, Gov. McDonnell doesn't point fingers and complain about the $4.2B budget deficit HE inherited. Instead, he fixed it!

  3. By Dick Morris (The Hill)

    ...The short answer is that every agency — each with its own particular bureaucratic agenda — was able to veto each aspect of any plan to fight the spill, with the unintended consequence that nothing stopped the oil from destroying hundreds of miles of wetlands, habitats, beaches, fisheries and recreational facilities.
    Don't read this if you don't want to make your blood boil.

  4. School Officials in Mass. Town Won't Let Students Recite Pledge of Allegiance


    The Arlington, Mass., school committee has rejected the 17-year-old's request to allow students to voluntarily recite the Pledge of Allegiance, because some educators are concerned that it would be hard to find teachers willing to recite it, according to a report in the Arlington Patch. 

    This makes me sick.  Good for those students for being more mature and respectful than the supposed adults "teaching" them. 
    UPDATE: Velvet Hammer blogs on this as well.

  5. G8: Obama interested in Huntsville’s golf courses: Clement

    National Post (Canada)
    When U.S. President Barack Obama stepped off his helicopter in Huntsville on Friday, the first thing he said was, “You’ve got a lot of golf courses here, don’t you?” Industry Minister Tony Clement told the National Post in an exclusive interview.
    How many more times is this man going to golf while oil is spilling, jobs are being lost, and a war is going on?!?!
