Emancipation DayToday, the nation’s capital celebrates “Emancipation Day” — commemorating the Republican Party’s abolition of slavery in the District of Columbia, on April 16, 1862. That’s right, the Republican Party freed the slaves in DC, despite fierce opposition from the Democrats. Of course, none of the Democrats running the DC Government dares mention that fact.

Jimmy Carter says dictators speak for all the people “In a democracy, I realize you don’t need to talk to the top leader to know how the country feels,” he said over the weekend, responding to a question from an Israeli journalist who noted that Mr. Carter had been snubbed by most of Israel’s top leadership and reprimanded by its president, Shimon Peres. “When I go to a dictatorship, I only have to talk to one person and that’s the dictator, because he speaks for all the people.”–Jimmy Carter Yup, that’s what he said. The dictator “speaks for all the people.” (Via Betsy’s Page)
Spain’s Defense Minister is Pregnant Here’s an image Spaniards will not soon forget: their new defense minister, reviewing trim, crisply uniformed soldiers, with her baby bump on display. The surprise appointment of Carme Chacon, age 37 and with no military experience, is the boldest statement yet from a Socialist government that has made gender equality one of its top priorities.

Coral Survives Direct Nuclear Strike SOME corals are again flourishing on Bikini Atoll, the Pacific site of the largest American atom bomb ever exploded, but other species have disappeared. A team of international scientists, including Australians, recently dived on the atoll, more than half a century after the stunning blast, to examine its marine life.
Zoe Richards from Queensland’s James Cook University, along with other scientists from Germany, Italy, Hawaii and the Marshall Islands, said the team had dived into the vast Bravo Crater left by the 1954 atom bomb. The 15 mega-tonne bomb was a thousand times more powerful than the one dropped on Hiroshima in Japan in WWII. It vapourised three islands, raised water temperatures to 55,000 degrees, shook islands 200km away and left a crater 2km wide and 73m deep (Via Astute Blogger)

Flash Cards for Immigrants Seeing Citizenship A Hill source tipped me off to government-funded “civics flash cards” that DHS is distributing to immigrants seeking to gain US citizenship. One of the cards asks foreigners to name one benefit of being an American citizen. One card’s answer mentions the right to vote. Good so far.
But take a look at this one (see article), which stands JFK’s famous admonition on its head. Ask not what you can do for America, ask what America can do for you. Gimme, gimme, gimme! File this one under ‘what were they thinking?’ (Via Michelle Malkin)
