This ‘n’ that

A random smattering of things that have caught my eye online in recent days:

How 3-D printers could build futuristic moon colony  (…as the Instapundit would say, ‘faster, please…’)

Gun violence: the national conversation we WON’T have

Administration extends Obamacare deadline yet again (…talk about ‘not ready for prime time.’  This is what happens when you rush through legislation that has no business being proposed in the first place.  It would probably have helped if the HHS secretary had been focused on this ‘major initiative’ instead of violating the Hatch Act…)

America’s baby bust   Related: Japan’s demographic disaster

– Economic adventure series for kids

– Don’t fire the person who has the keys to the company Twitter account

Out of ammo  (it seems Americans and their government are in an arms race. With the war in Iraq ‘over’ and things in Afghanistan ‘winding down,’ does anyone else find it odd that DHSnot the military — has ordered over a billion rounds of ammo in recent months??????? )

– For first time, majority of Americans say Federal Government threatens personal rights 
((“…whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness…”))

To end on a lighter note,  as a Saints fan I found this the best take on last night’s power outage at the Super Bowl.  Home field advantage, indeed!
