HOT5 Daily 1/23/2011

1. "Obama's State of the Union: If There's Anything We Learned From the Last Two Years, It's That We Know How to Spend Your Money Better Than You Do" Taxing and spending.

Representative Sample: These are the economic qualifications of the very same masterminds who are in the process of nationalizing the health care sector. ... It's time to turn the bums out -- and let's be quite uncivil about it.

2. "Noblesse Oblige" Double standard for the West.

Representative Sample: Cecil Rhodes, who once admonished people to “remember that you are an Englishman, and have consequently won first prize in the lottery of life” would have been surprised to learn there are all kinds of advantages to being non-Western in the modern world. For one thing you are far less likely to be accused of racism, colonialism or human rights violations.

3. "Why I Carry a Firearm" Some good ones.

Representative Sample: Because with a Smith and Wesson, it doesn't matter that I have the upper body strength of Justin Bieber.

4. "Not all assassination attempts are newsworthy" Just ones that can be used to smear the right.

Representative Sample: even a real assassination attempt on a Republican governor was not considered newsworthy by the legacy media.

5. "Navy One Step Closer to Using Lasers for Ship Defense" the march of technology.

Representative Sample: scientists at Los Alamos National Lab last month demonstrated the technology, known as a Free Electron Laser, needed to generate a one megawatt beam that could one day provide light-speed close-in defense of Navy ships.
