The week that was

This week, there was another shooting at Ft. Hood. The shooter gunned down three people and injured 16 before being confronted by a woman with a gun. The killer then turned the gun on himself. The left’s solution to these incidents is to take guns away from the military.

Paul Ryan proposed a budget that would cut spending, reform Medicaid, and balance the budget in ten years. President Obama referred to the plan as a “stinkburger” and a “meanwich.” The president failed to realize that kid speech is only acceptable during a filibuster or at CPAC.

Mozilla/Firefox CEO Brendan Eich resigned because people found out he supported Proposition 8 and donated $1,000 in 2008 to help keep same-sex marriage illegal. Slate.com was for once not repulsively unreadable when it reported on the story with the headline: “If You’re Against Gay Marriage, You’re a Bad CEO.” But I think they were being serious.

The Supreme Court ruled that the aggregate limit on donating to support multiple political candidates is unconstitutional. You may now contribute up to $2,600 to as many campaigns as you like, though disclaimer: it will probably cost you your job.

35-year-old Actor James Franco messaged back and forth with a 17-year-old girl he contacted online and asked if he should get a room in the same hotel she was staying at in New York City. He said social media is “tricky” and he’s “embarrassed.” It always is when you get caught.
