Link roundup

1.  "President Obama is using a Cold War-era mind-control technique known as "Delphi" to coerce Americans into accepting his plan for a United Nations-run communist dictatorship in which suburbanites will be forcibly relocated to cities. That's according to a four-hour briefing delivered to Republican state senators at the Georgia state Capitol last month."

2. ESPN's magazine has a feature on Texans defensive end JJ Watt, possibly the most valuable defensive player in the league. Coming out of high school, the best he could do was a scholarship to play tight end at Central Michigan. So what changed? Determined to play defense for Wisconsin, he found the right trainer:

Watt pushed himself to eat six meals a day, heavy on chicken, greens and protein shakes. He and Arnett worked on acceleration and deceleration, and in the summer of 2008, Watt felt he was physically ready. He had added 20 pounds by the time he left for Madison. He could squat 700 pounds and bench-press more than 400.
