Here are some other highlights and headlines that I noticed over at Ransom Notes Radio:

But, first, we need to address the topic of pirates. John promised on his show that I would share with everyone a couple of fun facts about pirates, and here they are:

Really what is a Pirate? It's just a guy that rapes, pillages, and plunders... So it's kinda like being in the Kennedy family - but with a gun. Also, stealing and ransoming are acceptable pirate activities... But they don't generally take more than 30 percent of a ships cargo. After all, they're pirates. Not Democrats.

And now, other news:

Our State Department has asked if Russia will “live by the promise of the hashtag” #UnitedforUkraine… Borders, sovereignty, international law be damned. The Hashtag, that’s what will keep Putin at bay. (WeaselZippers.us)

The U-2 spy plane was an engineering marvel that survived the Cuban missile crises, the Vietnam war, Desert Storm, and the entirety of the Cold War (as well as Kosovo, the war in Afghanistan, and Operation Iraqi Freedom)… But it was no match for Obamanomics and a Democrat budget. (Stripes.com)

Finally! The New York Times reported on some voter fraud… In Afghanistan. Which, by the way, has horribly racist voter ID laws, and does not have mail-in-ballots. Can someone draw the NYT a map of Chicago? Or is that location too dangerous for embedding reporters? (NYTimes.com)

A global warming “skeptic” conference was attended (literally) by more experts than they were able to accommodate… But the media isn’t covering it, because 97 percent of journalists agree that the conference never happened. (The coverage is settled.) (DailyCaller.com)

John McCain threw praise at Hillary for being “an amazing” person when he introduced her at a recent event. I don’t think Bill made it there, because there wasn’t any room on her broom. (WeaselZippers.us)
