Quote of the Day.

Speaking of former Vice President Dick Cheney:
“He's beyond condemning him; he wants to waterboard him until his lungs qualify for a federal wetlands status.”

The Pres wins another award!

Here’s Judicial Watch’s list of Washington’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” for 2009. I’ve included BO’s “rap sheet” in full. To get the list of the other’s “honors”, go here.

1. Senator Christopher Dodd (D-CT)

2. Senator John Ensign (R-NV)

3. Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA)

4. Secretary of Treasury Timothy Geithner

5. Attorney General Eric Holder

6. Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-IL)/ Senator Roland Burris (D-IL)

7. President Barack Obama: During his presidential campaign, President Obama promised to run an ethical and transparent administration. However, in his first year in office, the President has delivered corruption and secrecy, bringing Chicago-style political corruption to the White House. Consider just a few Obama administration "lowlights" from year one: Even before President Obama was sworn into office, he was interviewed by the FBI for a criminal investigation of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich's scheme to sell the President's former Senate seat to the highest bidder. (Obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and slumlord Valerie Jarrett, both from Chicago, are also tangled up in the Blagojevich scandal.) Moreover, the Obama administration made the startling claim that the Privacy Act does not apply to the White House. The Obama White House believes it can violate the privacy rights of American citizens without any legal consequences or accountability. President Obama boldly proclaimed that "transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency," but his administration is addicted to secrecy, stonewalling far too many of Judicial Watch's Freedom of Information Act requests and is refusing to make public White House visitor logs as federal law requires. The Obama administration turned the National Endowment of the Arts (as well as the agency that runs the AmeriCorps program) into propaganda machines, using tax dollars to persuade "artists" to promote the Obama agenda. According to documents uncovered by Judicial Watch, the idea emerged as a direct result of the Obama campaign and enjoyed White House approval and participation. President Obama has installed a record number of "czars" in positions of power. Too many of these individuals are leftist radicals who answer to no one but the president. And too many of the czars are not subject to Senate confirmation (which raises serious constitutional questions). Under the President's bailout schemes, the federal government continues to appropriate or control -- through fiat and threats -- large sectors of the private economy, prompting conservative columnist George Will to write: "The administration's central activity -- the political allocation of wealth and opportunity -- is not merely susceptible to corruption, it is corruption." Government-run healthcare and car companies, White House coercion, uninvestigated ACORN corruption, debasing his office to help Chicago cronies, attacks on conservative media and the private sector, unprecedented and dangerous new rights for terrorists, perks for campaign donors – this is Obama's "ethics" record -- and we haven't even gotten through the first year of his presidency.

8. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

9. Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) and the rest of the PMA Seven

10. Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY)

I don’t think the acronym, MSM (Main Stream Media), is appropriate anymore

I think EM (Establishment Media) makes more sense.

Could Obama Use INTERPOL to Evade Constitutional Law? By Liz Blaine via newsrealblog.com

Here’s a small excerpt – you ought to read the entire article:

“INTERPOL is now an international organization free from identifying its agents, communications or activities, immune from 4th Amendment search and seizure provisions, with the capacity to institute legal proceedings, and the ability to ignore American’s 6th Amendment rights. In essence, the President has granted INTERPOL enforcement powers which supersede the Constitution.” (emphasis mine)

Read some history BO.

Barack, didn’t they teach you econ 101 in “Community Activist” school? Haven’t you ever heard of “The Tariff Act of 1930”?

Did you know!

That - Alexandria, Louisiana, and Alexandria, Egypt are on almost the same exact latitude line. Alexandria, La. latitude: 31.3112036 degrees north, Alexandria, Egypt latitude: 31.2135 degrees north, according to this site. That comes out to a little less than 7 statue miles. Who’da thunk it – and what’s more important – who cares? Why I do, of course. I was born in one of those cities - I guess that’s why I know this strange fact.

A Mystery of the Universe!

"Closing the detention centre at Guantanamo is essential to protecting our national security and helping our troops by removing a deadly recruiting tool from the hands of al-Qaeda,"
Wow! Amazing! Merely by transferring the prisoners from Cuba to Illinois, we have mysteriously removed “a deadly recruiting tool”. This will reduce terrorist attacks by a 1000 percent, at least!

Thoughts on Global Warming.

1) It’s probably true that human activity has had a warming effect on the global climate.

2) It’s probably NOT true that it will result in a complete global disaster that will cause the extinction of human beings. For one thing, it is has been shown that the climate has varied wildly over the history of the planet. For most of earth’s past it has been much warmer than it has been in its recent history. However a significant change could cause a great deal of disruption and possible suffering for humanity. But balanced against that, massive government intervention in the economies of the world could possibly cause even more disruption and suffering – especially given that we probably have less understanding of the intricacies of economics than we have of climate science.

3) However, if there is a possibility that a global catastrophe could occur, we should weigh the risks using rational cost/benefit analysis, and NOT using the “Precautionary Principle”. The “Precautionary Principle” is an insane “solution” that only takes into account the worst possible scenario – it’s akin to the “Zero Tolerance” policies that have been promulgated in the public schools; e.g. - children being suspended because they brought forks or aspirins to school. If scientists believe the Precautionary Principle should be used as guidance for solving global warming, then they should also use extreme measures like shutting down the Large Hadron Collider, on the off chance it might make a black hole that will swallow the earth. You can’t have it both ways.

4) Finally, does anyone really believe that the Machiavellian politics of the UN and world governments will be able to “solve” anything?! Here’s just one of countless examples: Do you think Comrade Putin will generously go along with measures to massively reduce greenhouse gases? Just look at the thousands of miles of frozen coastline in northern Russia, and the millions of square miles of frozen land in Siberia. Do you think Comrade Putin will make such huge sacrifices as stopping the drilling and use of fossil fuels to help the poor people of Bangladesh? It might be a nice legacy for Mr. Putin to be remembered as the one that opened up so many new resources for Russia. Who would have thought the “Climategate” scandal would have been caused by Russian “patriots” in Siberia.

God save us from those that want to save us.

via Moonbattery.com: “Trial Lawyers Poised to Sue Society Into Stone Age”

Wow, the insanity just keeps growing!

“’A group of 12 Gulf Coast residents whose homes were damaged by Katrina are suing 33 energy companies for greenhouse gas emissions that allegedly contributed to the global warming that allegedly made the hurricane worse.’

“This is the equivalent of suing the owner of a black cat that walked across your path before you got in an accident. It isn't just dumb to think local power companies caused Katrina; it's insane. But the inmates are running the asylum now.”

Who says “Progressives” aren’t funny!

Go here for the videos and here for the text (in PDF form).
Janeane Garofalo and Denis Leary are really funny (for once), and the quotes of “reporters and anchors” in the main stream media are as excruciatingly awkward and embarrassingly funny as a “The Office” episode. Here’s one quote from the “King of Comedy” Denis Leary:

"The Barbra Streisand Political IQ Award for Celebrity Vapidity"
'Actor Denis Leary: “I do have to say that I think that President
Obama is the greatest President in the history of all of
our Presidents, and that he can do no wrong in my book. So
how’s that for prejudice on the Democratic side?”...
Fill-in host Joy Behar: “What do you think of Obama’s pick of
Sotomayor?”
Leary: “Fantastic!”
Behar: “You love her?”
Leary: “Everything you ask me about President Obama I’m
just going to say it’s the greatest thing ever. I love the guy!”

Happiest states revisited.

Here's the complete list of the happiest states, colored according to this map. It seems pretty obvious that one of the main contributors to happiness is governance. Hawaii manages to overcome its “Progressiveness”, but California, even with its paradise like climate, is still in a god awful mess due to its Democrat legislature.

1. Louisiana
2. Hawaii
3. Florida
4. Tennessee
5. Arizona
6. Mississippi
7. Montana
8. South Carolina
9. Alabama
10. Maine
11. Alaska
12. North Carolina
13. Wyoming
14. Idaho
15. South Dakota
16. Texas
17. Arkansas
18. Vermont
19. Georgia
20. Oklahoma
21. Colorado
22. Delaware
23. Utah
24. New Mexico
25. North Dakota
26. Minnesota
27. New Hampshire
28. Virginia
29. Wisconsin
30. Oregon
31. Iowa
32. Kansas
33. Nebraska
34. West Virginia
35. Kentucky
36. Washington
37. District of Columbia
38. Missouri
39. Nevada
40. Maryland
41. Pennsylvania
42. Rhode Island
43. Massachusetts
44. Ohio
45. Illinois
46. California
47. Indiana
48. Michigan
49. New Jersey
50. Connecticut
51. New York

(Having spent most of my life in Louisiana and Mississippi, and having seen list after list showing both places placing last, it’s nice to know that a very scientific list has them 1st and 6th, and good ol’ California and New York at 46th and 51st. I’ve been to both California and New York, and the old cliche is very true, “Nice places to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there”.)

The Best of all Possible Worlds.

Time to do a little Christmas shopping, in the best state, in the best country, in the best of all possible worlds. Now if I could just find a job.

Another reason to support global warming.

The happiest states:

1. Louisiana
2. Hawaii
3. Florida
4. Tennessee
5. Arizona
6. Mississippi
7. Montana
8. South Carolina
9. Alabama
10. Maine

8 out of the top 10 are warm weather states – guess we need more CO2.
Go here to see all 51.
I’d like to see if there is a correlation between the happiness ranking and the type of governance. Given the character of the bottom dwellers, I suspect there is:


40. Maryland
41. Pennsylvania
42. Rhode Island
43. Massachusetts
44. Ohio
45. Illinois
46. California
47. Indiana
48. Michigan
49. New Jersey
50. Connecticut
51. New York

How's that "Progressive" governance workin' out for ya?

Who reads these things anyway? (Also, another mass murder enabler?)

The article sounds rather funny, but this is what caught my attention:

The rules to allow Amtrak passengers to carry weapons with them are new. Airline passengers have long been permitted to transport weapons in checked luggage. But Amtrak banned firearms from its trains after Sept. 11. Only police officers are now allowed to board Amtrak trains with guns.” (emphasis mine)

This is, of course, a recipe for another mass murder like Ft. Hood, Virginia Tech, Columbine, etc., etc. The passengers are unarmed and at the mercy of a mad man.

'Cultural Marxism' (excerpt) - by Geoffrey


Bill Ayers is most certainly an agent of Gramsi’s agenda and there is a high likelihood that Barack Obama is a covert advocate of Cultural Marxism as well. He cannot, as President, act directly in pursuit of its agenda but viewed in the light of advocacy, many of his actions make perfect sense. That so many of his ‘Czar’ appointments are radicals certainly supports that assertion.”

“This strategy is being carried out to the letter.

“The nuclear family has been widely shattered. Illegitimacy was transformed from a stigma into a ‘right’. The tragic disadvantage of fatherless ‘families’ was redefined as a neutrally viewed ‘lifestyle choice’. So much so that many now assert the belief that, children do not need either a mother or a father, only the loving support of a ‘caring’ adult.

“Education was wrecked, with its core tenet of transmitting a culture to successive generations, replaced by the idea that what children already knew was of superior value to anything the adult world might value.

“The outcome of this ‘child-centered’ approach has been widespread illiteracy and ignorance and an eroded capacity for independent thought.

“The ‘rights’ agenda, commonly known as ‘political correctness’ turned morality inside out, by excusing any misdeeds by self-designated ‘victim’ groups on the grounds that ‘victims’ can’t be held responsible for what they do. Law and order were similarly undermined, with criminals deemed to be beyond punishment since they also were ‘victims’ of what was asserted to be an inherently ‘unjust’ society.

“Radical feminists, anti-racism and gay ‘rights’ thus turned men, white people and especially Christians (as the foremost advocates of foundational western values) into the enemies of decency. An offensive strategy of neutralization designed to keep western society’s advocates on the defensive by essentially categorizing them as “guilty until proven innocent”.

“This ‘Through The Looking Glass’ mindset rests on the belief that the world is divided into the powerful (who are responsible for all bad things) and the oppressed (who are responsible for none of them).

“This is pure Marxist doctrine.”

‘“By their fruits shall you know them” is still a worthwhile maxim and the ‘fruit’ of Cultural Marxism is active opposition to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Americans still have the right to believe what they choose, part of that choice is whether they stand with Jefferson and Lincoln… or with Marx, Lenin, Stalin and Mao. It shall be one or the other, for we cannot profess loyalty to two opposed ideologies. You will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both Liberty and Cultural Marxism.’

‘Critical Pedagogy’ (excerpt) - by Geoffrey

...
Young, impressionable children are no longer being taught to feel good about being Americans. Their schools teachers, who traditionally embody socially approved values, are teaching them to be ashamed of being Americans.

‘Spreading out from the schools that teach our teachers, this ideology is being inculcated into our nations’ K-12 schools and is anti-American in the most profound meaning of the term. It is a movement that is teaching future generations that capitalism and traditional American values are intrinsically evil.’
...

You folks are coming through.

“Progressive/Left”


Consider that the aforementioned term -- "counter-revolutionary" -- was invented by the terrorists of the French Revolution to stigmatize their opponents as the latter were being led to the guillotine. The first "counter-revolutionaries" were in fact the very people in whose name the revolution had triumphed, the Catholic peasants of the Vendee. A quarter of a million such enemies of the radical future were slaughtered in the Jacobin Terror of the revolutionary Year II. The peasants of the Vendee were not opposed to the changes of 1789 -- the constitutional reforms of the Monarchy, the Declaration of the Rights of Man, the enfranchisement of the Third Estate - but to the revolutionary dictatorship that followed.’

‘The radical ethos of the French Revolution became the wellspring of a socialist revolt against bourgeois order that culminated in the establishment of the Soviet empire. On the other hand, the libertarian ethos of the American Revolution inspired the conservative opponents of the Soviet tyranny, a counter-revolution based on individual rights, free markets and democratic constitutions. The revolutionary societies that followed this latter path formed an alliance of free nations that would eventually confront the Soviet empire. The Cold War is often presented as a power struggle with no particular historical dimension. But it is more accurately seen as the climactic phase of the conflict between these contending traditions.

‘When these two traditions confront each other in their historic conflict, progressivism and conservatism (left and right) become inverse images. Within the Soviet bloc, progressive or "left" signifies counter revolution -- capitalism, liberalism, democracy; "right" means the defense of the conservative status quo (the Marxist dictatorship, communism, socialism). In the West, it is just the opposite: To be conservative within a revolutionary tradition simply means to conserve the paradigm peculiar to that revolution. To be conservative, or on the "right," in the context of the democratic West means to preserve the liberal, individualist and free-market framework that is its historic achievement and to act on the non-utopian premises that are its philosophical foundation. Among the highest values of the contemporary right in America are: individual freedom, the rule of law, private property, and limited government. The progressive left, by contrast, favors group identification and group rights; separate standards of behavior and performance for different groups; public or governmental control over private property; and generally greater governmental involvement in -- and oversight of -- the affairs of the populace.’ (emphasis mine)

I probably shouldn’t even ask.

A climate anomaly has been detected over Copenhagen, Denmark.

Meteorologists have detected a plume of hot air ascending over the European city of Copenhagen. In spite of freezing temperatures in the city itself, a vast plume of super heated gas is causing excitement in the recreational glider pilot’s community.

Experts believe the plume may have been caused by vast bonfires being fueled by taxpayer money that is being stolen from the wealth producers of the world.

It ain't reform folks...

Don’t call it health care “reform”; call it what it really is: health care “CONTROL”.

Obama Slams 'Fat Cat' Bankers

Let's see, who forced banks to loosen credit requirements and give out questionable loans that caused the economic meltdown - Barney Frank and the Democrats.

Who said the banks needed to be more careful and should be more restrictive on credit requirements after the economic meltdown – the Democrats.

Now who says the banks are fat cats and should loosen credit requirements and start making loans – Obama and the Democrats.

All you people out there must hate puppies!

No Ad clicks yesterday or today - you have one last chance, or I eat the dog.

The Most Harmful?

Possibly the most harmful person in American History.

Obama and the Democrat congress – Screw the voters!

Basically, while we are in a major recession, BO, Markey, and the democrat congress, want to take billions of taxpayer money and GIVE IT AWAY to other countries! And they’re going to do it whether the voters like it or not – WHILE WE HAVE OVER 10% UNEMPLOYMENT!!!

President Obama heads to Copenhagen this week armed with an "endangerment finding" by the Environmental Protection Agency that warns of the negative impact of carbon dioxide. That finding gives Obama regulatory authority to put limits on U.S. output.’ (emphasis mine)

‘Markey said the president is talking about committing $3 billion to help developing countries…’

 How about committing $3 billion to helping the unemployed in THIS country!!

‘Inhofe countered that Mexico, as well as India and China, are "chomping at the bit" for the United States to pass legislation that will send jobs overseas. He added that China holds $800 billion of U.S. debt and the Congress is not going to approve sending $10 billion more to update their electrical grid.’

‘But Markey responded that Congress is better off doing something than nothing because "it's no longer a question of legislation or no legislation, it's a question of legislation or regulation."’ (emphasis mine)

Of course what he’s saying is: we don’t have to listen to no damn voters, screw the voters if they don’t pass the legislation we’ll go ahead and do it anyway!!

Hide the (dec)Line. (via @instapundit on Twitter)

...
"For example, some suggest that the ‘medieval warm period’, the 350-year era that started around 1000, when red wine grapes flourished in southern England and the Vikings tilled now-frozen farms in Greenland, was considerably warmer than even 1998.

"Of course, this is inconvenient to climate change believers because there were no cars or factories pumping out greenhouse gases in 1000AD - yet the Earth still warmed.

"Some tree-ring data eliminates the medieval warmth altogether, while others reflect it. In September 1999, Jones’s IPCC colleague Michael Mann of Penn State University in America - who is now also the subject of an official investigation --was working with Jones on the hockey stick. As they debated which data to use, they discussed a long tree-ring analysis carried out by Keith Briffa.

"Briffa knew exactly why they wanted it, writing in an email on September 22: ‘I know there is pressure to present a nice tidy story as regards “apparent unprecedented warming in a thousand years or more”.’ But his conscience was troubled. ‘In reality the situation is not quite so simple - I believe that the recent warmth was probably matched about 1,000 years ago.’"

"Over the next few days, Briffa, Jones, Folland and Mann emailed each other furiously. Mann was fearful that if Briffa’s trees made the IPCC diagram, ‘the sceptics [would] have a field day casting doubt on our ability to understand the factors that influence these estimates and, thus, can undermine faith [in them] - I don’t think that doubt is scientifically justified, and I’d hate to be the one to have to give it fodder!’

"Finally, Briffa changed the way he computed his data and submitted a revised version. This brought his work into line for earlier centuries, and ‘cooled’ them significantly. But alas, it created another, potentially even more serious, problem.

"According to his tree rings, the period since 1960 had not seen a steep rise in temperature, as actual temperature readings showed - but a large and steady decline, so calling into question the accuracy of the earlier data derived from tree rings.

"This is the context in which, seven weeks later, Jones presented his ‘trick’ - as simple as it was deceptive.

"All he had to do was cut off Briffa’s inconvenient data at the point where the decline started, in 1961, and replace it with actual temperature readings, which showed an increase.

"On the hockey stick graph, his line is abruptly terminated - but the end of the line is obscured by the other lines.

"‘Any scientist ought to know that you just can’t mix and match proxy and actual data,’ said Philip Stott, emeritus professor of biogeography at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies.

"‘They’re apples and oranges. Yet that’s exactly what he did.’

"Since Warmergate-broke, some of the CRU’s supporters have claimed that Jones and his colleagues made a ‘full disclosure’ of what they did to Briffa’s data in order to produce the hockey stick.

"But as McIntyre points out, ‘contrary to claims by various climate scientists, the IPCC Third Assessment Report did not disclose the deletion of the post-1960 values’.

"On the final diagram, the cut off was simply concealed by the other lines.























This is just the "tip of the iceberg", so to speak. The original article has plenty more.

I’ve come up with a solution to the climate problem.

Very simple, all we need to do is track Al Gore’s carbon footprint. e. g., when Al’s electricity usage falls below mine, I’ll reduce my usage so that it is as low as his. When Al spews less CO2 from his private jet… well, you get the picture.

If we all follow this simple rule, the “Climate Crisis” with go up in smoke.

THIS PISSES ME OFF!!!!!!

What a load of fear-mongering hogwash!!! This is what passes for journalism at the AP! I’ve read more insightful “news” in the National Inquirer. This is pure propaganda, pushing an agenda, and is a disservice to the very issue it purports to support! I honestly believe that there is some truth to the idea of human caused global warming, but this kind of fear-mongering is what makes me tend to resist the idea. Instead of a reasoned approach, we have this universal doomsday hysteria – every single scenario is a disaster, and America is the ultimate evil doer. And the implication is that only all powerful governments are the solution, and therefore the simple masses must be reigned in and forced to “correct” their stupidity.

Well, Charles J. Hanley, I’m not buying it. Why don’t you find a job you might be better at, like terrifying children with ghost stories? And Yahoo should be ashamed for posting this clap-trap as news.

I thought the US was the bad guy?

Computer hackers in Tomsk have been used in the past by the Russian secret service (FSB) to shut websites which promote views disliked by Moscow.

“Such arrangements provide the Russian government with plausible deniability while using so-called ‘hacker patriots’ to shut down websites.”

“'There has been speculation the hackers were Russian. It appears to have been a sophisticated and well-run operation, that had a political motive given the timing in relation to Copenhagen.’”

“Russia is the world’s third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases, and lags behind many Western countries in greening its industry.

“However, its emissions plunged in the Nineties as its economy collapsed and it now sits on a treasure trove of unused carbon emission permits that could be sold to other countries.

“These are due to expire in 2012 with the Kyoto Treaty. The Kremlin wants these to be rolled forward and last week signalled they would not sign a new deal without this, threatening the whole Copenhagen summit.”

And besides, wouldn’t it be kind of stupid to be AGAINST global warming if you lived in Siberia?

"Despite the drive to do a deal to cut emissions at Copenhagen its is estimated that there will be around 1,200 limousines on the city's road this week – of which just five will be either electric cars or hybrids. Copenhagen's main airport, furthermore, says it is expecting up to 140 extra private jets."

Intel hopes 48-core chip will solve new challenges













"Pushing several steps farther in the multicore direction, Intel on Wednesday demonstrated a fully programmable 48-core processor it thinks will pave the way for massive data computers powerful enough to do more of what humans can."
...
"No silver bullet for parallel programming
The Tera-scale project doesn't fundamentally address one of the big challenges in today's computing industry, though: getting multicore chips to run today's computing jobs that are often designed to run as a single thread of instructions rather than independent tasks running in parallel."

I wonder how they are progressing on parallel programming. I remember attending a lecture about it back in 1980.

"Does Mr. Schumer eat cheese from only Vermont and Wisconsin? Drink wine from only California and Oregon? Does he vacation only in places such as Maui and Martha’s Vineyard? Does he listen to recordings made only by musicians and recording-studio technicians holding U.S. passports? Does he read books written only by American authors, and decorate his home with only paintings, photographs, vases, and sculptures produced by Americans residing in U.S. locales such as Santa Fe and Manhattan? Is his life nearly devoid of modern consumer electronics, given that very few of these devices are today manufactured in America?"
...
"... were Mr. Schumer to rid his existence of these foreign contributions to his living standard, he would soon find himself dark-ages ignorant and appallingly impoverished."

'Their calculations suggest that a black hole a few atto¬meters or so across (an attometer is a nano-nanometer, smaller than a proton), with a mass on the order of a million metric tons, could provide large amounts of power for decades before shrinking to nothingness and disappearing in a final explosive poof. Making black holes of that magnitude would require an elaborate and massive bank of gamma-ray lasers, powered by a gigantic solar panel orbiting the sun. Converging laser beams would concentrate energy densely enough to create the black hole (somewhere in the vicinity of the sun), which would then be harnessed to a space vessel equipped with a parabolic dish to focus the black hole’s energetic emissions. Steering a black hole is no problem, Crane and Westmoreland say: “It is only necessary to scatter radiation off the black hole to impart momentum to it.” It’s basically pretty simple.'

Well... someone's right about Global Climate Change...



"Late Carboniferous to Early Permian time (315 mya -- 270 mya) is the only time period in the last 600 million years when both atmospheric CO2 and temperatures were as low as they are today (Quaternary Period )." (emphasis mine)

Looks like we’ll need to pump a lot more CO2 into the atmosphere just to make the environment more “natural”.

Main Stream Media and Climategate

'Maybe we can learn the secrets of the media's selective outrage from the worker who complained to the boss that the computer had gypped him out of $80 that week. "I'll look into it," promised the boss. The next day the boss came back and said, "You're right. Our computer did gyp you out of $80 this week. But when we went back six weeks we found that same computer gave you $80 too much. Isn't that right?" "Yes," agreed the worker. "You didn't complain about it at that time, did you?" asked the boss. "No," replied the worker. "Why not?" demanded the boss.

"Well," said the worker, "One mistake I can forgive, but not two."'

The Progressive Fundamentalist Religion?

Q: How is this different from a Televangelist screaming about the “End Times”, who terrifies little old ladies into sending him their life savings?
A: There’s a lot more money involved.

"Why did the money pour in so quickly? Because the climate alarm kept ringing so loudly: The louder the alarm, the greater the sums."
...
"Thus, the European Commission's most recent appropriation for climate research comes to nearly $3 billion, and that's not counting funds from the EU's member governments. In the U.S., the House intends to spend $1.3 billion on NASA's climate efforts, $400 million on NOAA's, and another $300 million for the National Science Foundation. The states also have a piece of the action, with California—apparently not feeling bankrupt enough—devoting $600 million to their own climate initiative. In Australia, alarmists have their own Department of Climate Change at their funding disposal.

"And all this is only a fraction of the $94 billion that HSBC Bank estimates has been spent globally this year on what it calls "green stimulus"—largely ethanol and other alternative energy schemes—of the kind from which Al Gore and his partners at Kleiner Perkins hope to profit handsomely." (italics mine)
...
"All of them have been on the receiving end of climate change-related funding, so all of them must believe in the reality (and catastrophic imminence) of global warming just as a priest must believe in the existence of God."
...
"... they depend on an inherently corrupting premise, namely that the hypothesis on which their livelihood depends has in fact been proved. Absent that proof, everything they represent—including the thousands of jobs they provide—vanishes. This is what's known as a vested interest, and vested interests are an enemy of sound science.
 
"Which brings us back to the climategate scientists, the keepers of the keys to the global warming cathedral."

Insanity in Merry ol' England

Apparently the inmates are running the asylum… er, Island.

Great Moments in Progressive History.

“Wilson's historical reputation is that of a far-sighted progressive.”

“One legacy of post-Civil War Republican ascendancy was that Washington's large black populace had access to federal jobs, and worked with whites in largely integrated circumstances. Wilson's cabinet put an end to that, bringing Jim Crow to Washington.

“Wilson allowed various officials to segregate the toilets, cafeterias, and work areas of their departments.”

“Wilson's own view, as he expressed it to intimates, was that federal segregation was an act of kindness.”

Wow! Now we're up to $150 dollars a pop! (via @beercrafting on twitter)

Given the price, I think it would be more economical for an unemployed person like myself to stick with “Mad Dog 20/20”. However, considering my past, anything over 6% is NOT a good idea.

An Open Letter to Friends, Family, and Whoever the Hell looks at this Blog.

Dear Friends,

Warmest holiday greetings.

As you may well know, I have been unemployed now for o’er fourscore by two days and nigh on two fortnights. I hope you are all doing well.

As you sit before your lavish feasts this holiday season, I was hoping that you might find some small way to remember those of us who are less fortunate. I myself have been trying to supplement my meager stipend from my government unemployment insurance, by laboriously slaving away at this electronic blog. As you may remember from the past, I have occasionally, humbly, and with no small amount of embarrassment and shame, entreated you all in the mildest manner I am capable of, to possibly “click” one of the advertisements that are displayed on said blog. I know this will require a mighty collective effort from you, my friends. You will be forced to exert great effort and moral fortitude to move your mouse pointer approximately three inches to the left margin. There you will heroically have to summon a herculean effort to press the left mouse button – neigh, not the right, but the notorious (and sinister) left button, upon one of said advertisements displayed thereon. Then following a brief, but poignant pause, you shall dutifully, but courageously and swiftly, bring the aforementioned mouse pointer to the “x” in the upper right corner of the advertisement window, and thusly dispatch the evil thing with a slight contraction of the muscles of your collective index fingers.

 Now I know this is asking a lot – and I wouldn’t blame you, if you honorably declined said action, since I’m sure you have many, many more important things to do, and I am almost ashamed to ask you to perform such a risky and trying action – an action that will only allow me to buy a few useless Christmas trinkets for the needy children in my neighborhood anyway (and possibly with enough left over to buy a few scraps of bread for my own sustenance) – hardly worth such a noble effort on your part. But if you decide to make this great sacrifice on my behalf, I shall be eternally grateful, and will remember you in all my prayers for all the remaining miserable days of my short life.

Humbly yours,
Low On Prozac

ps. If you don’t click my ads, I hope you get toe fungus.

How is the Progressive Media going spin this?

It was the work of the Tea Party folks, right-wing talk radio, Christian terrorists, Conservatives in general, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Fox News, George Bush, etc., etc., etc.
OR
Obviously the right-wing caused these murders by inciting Progressives to murder.

I wonder if BHO is going to say the cops acted stupidly.

(ps. By Progressive media I mean, NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, NPR, The New York Times, The Guardian, etc., etc., in other words, mind-numbed Liberal Arts majors.)

More Politically Correct Murders?

You better watch Fox News if you want to hear about this:

“ … which police have since called a ‘domestic terrorist event.’"

(See earlier post on the murders of 5 police officers.)

Real Terrorism from the Left.

Another example of “Progressive” terrorism? I wonder how the MSM will minimize this. I also wonder if this is linked to the new "Progressive" re-education programs.
Is there a connection to this guy?
...
"Wegner says Monfort told him he "wanted to make a difference in society" so he suggested law school."
...
"While in the UW scholarship program, Monfort focused on the work of Paul Butler, a law professor at George Washington University. Butler is a proponent of a controversial tactic known as jury nullification, whereby a jury can ignore a judge's instructions and acquit defendants, especially black defendants convicted of a non-violent crime, no matter how strong the case against them.
'It is the moral responsibility of black jurors to emancipate some guilty black outlaws,' Butler wrote in a 1995 Yale Law Journal article, adding: 'My goal is the subversion of American criminal justice, at least as it now exists.'" (Italics mine.)

Sounds like the Progressives are getting violent in their plan to reshape American ideals and philosophy. I’m not surprised it’s happening in Washington state.

But it’s gonna help the poooooooooorrrr!! (via @douglasernstYLP on twitter)

Hurting the Poor.
...
"So a company could save $3,000 by hiring, say, someone with a working spouse or a teenager with working parents, rather than a single mother with three children."
...
"Seriously bad policy. In other words, employers will have a strong tax incentive to lay off the workers who need the jobs most -- people without other sources of income."

The "Brave New" American Schools (via @LizBlaine on twitter)

This is (to use a Progressive wuss word) CHILLING!
"'The first step toward "cultural competence," says the task group, is for future teachers to recognize – and confess – their own bigotry. Anyone familiar with the re-education camps of China's Cultural Revolution will recognize the modus operandi,' she said"
"What if some aspiring teachers resist this effort at thought control and object to parroting back an ideological line as a condition of future employment?" she posed. "The task group has Orwellian plans for such rebels: The U, it says, must 'develop clear steps and procedures for working with nonperforming students, including a remediation plan.'"
...
"Further, the letter noted, 'the college in its proposal promises to start screening its applicants to make sure they have the proper "commitments" and "dispositions."'"
"'Here's the kicker,' FIRE said in its report. 'The college even realizes that its efforts to impose such a severe ideological litmus test may be unconstitutional.'"
"The letter cited a proposal to consult with the university's own lawyers."

At 50 bucks a pop I think I'll stick with Miller Lite.

I'll bet 18 of these ought to make for some interesting texting and/or Internet chats:

"Family holidays can be stressful. And hitting the hard liquor will just cause lips to be pursed and tuts to be tutted. But the solution is here in the form of 32 per cent alcohol beer.

"The beer is called Tactical Nuclear Penguin. The brewers, called BrewDog, are in Scotland. Both of these facts make perfect sense. The BBC report that it will sell for $50 a bottle and that the label will have the following warning:

'This is an extremely strong beer; it should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance. In exactly the same manner that you would enjoy a fine whisky, a Frank Zappa album or a visit from a friendly yet anxious ghost.'

"Expect to see it in the hands of homeless people, who will enjoy it with an air of desperate diligence like they would enjoy lighter fluid, stealing someone's shoes or a visit from a friendly yet anxious police officer."

I'd imagine you'd probably see more than anxious ghosts - probably a lot of anxious pink elephants.

Humm, 79%? Sounds like an improvement over Vista.

First programmable quantum computer created.

My two cents on Climategate

As a Libertarian, my problem with Global Warming is not that it is false, but that it’s being politicized. It’s obvious that it’s being used to promote governmental intervention and the suppression of individual rights. Is the science really good enough to require draconian governmental intervention? Is the evidence really good enough that it predicts the end of the world in the near future? It kind of reminds me of preachers giving Hellfire and Brimstone sermons – scare the Hell out of the congregation and then pass the collection plate – good way to accumulate power.

I feel that women put too much emphasis on things like, wealth, looks, power, virility, and wealth.

Progressives: Master Revisionists.

This fairy tale quote by John Kerry (Newsweek 11/16/09) made me laugh out loud:
“With Afghanistan, as with Vietnam, we have a president facing pressure from the military. President Kennedy was strong enough to refuse to be pushed into combat operations. His successor, President Johnson, feared a public dispute with his commanders, so he failed to stand up to them when they insisted that the United States was headed for disaster without an escalation.”
Johnson, who the Progressives despised during his presidency, can be disparaged as a weakling who knuckled under to the evil military. But you see – it wasn’t his fault! He was still a good Progressive Democrat; the evil right-wing military FORCED him into escalating the Vietnam War!
On the other hand, Kennedy, a minor president (whose only claims to fame were avoiding a nuclear war that he had, himself, almost foolishly caused, and making a supply-side tax cut), but a Democrat patron saint, is shown as a strong man willing to stand up to the same dastardly evil military war-mongers.
The Progressives are master history revisionists: America was a colonialist empire, Nixon was responsible for Vietnam, Kennedy was assassinated by right-wingers, even the word “Liberal” was stolen by Progressives in the early 20th century (as outlined in “The Commanding Heights”, by Yergin & Stanislaw) – it actually meant what is known today as “Classical Liberalism”, essentially modern Libertarianism.

“NICE's real mission is to protect the British health-care budget. Since 2000 it has denied patients the ability to use the newest cancer drugs--by my count, in 226 different indications where American insurers, and Medicare, currently pay, and where the National Comprehensive Cancer Network says there is ‘high-level evidence’ or ‘uniform consensus’ of clinical benefit. Cancer survival rates in the U.K. are substantially lower than in the U.S. and the gap continues to widen.”

“Mr. Obama's policies on drug access and his party's plans to control pricing will distort the financial incentives that inspire innovations. This will shortchange the contributions innovations provide.”

Something I better not try:

Presolar dust particles

"Dust samples collected by high-flying aircraft in the upper atmosphere have yielded an unexpectedly rich trove of relicts from the ancient cosmos, report scientists from NAI’s Carnegie Institution of Washington team in Earth and Planetary Science Letters. The stratospheric dust includes minute grains that likely formed inside stars that lived and died long before the birth of our sun, as well as material from molecular clouds in interstellar space. This “ultra-primitive” material likely wafted into the atmosphere after the Earth passed through the trail of an Earth-crossing comet in 2003, giving scientists a rare opportunity to study cometary dust in the laboratory."

Great article by Michael Barone (via @sanuzis on twitter)

A world turned upside down:

“In response to Maj. Nidal Hassan's mass murders at Ft. Hood, Obama and top officials -- Gen. George Casey and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano -- seem less worried about whether military and civilian officials ignored clear signs that this man was an Islamist terrorist and more worried about whether ordinary Americans might indiscriminately stage mass attacks on Muslims.”

The Capitalist Pig busts another myth.

To default on a loan is one thing. But to default and blame the lender -- that takes moxie.

"Berkshire quarterly net income more than doubles"

I’m tried of Buffet winning - I’ll fix his ass! I’m gonna buy some of his damn stock!

The hoop jumping begins.

The left-wing main-stream media has started their mind bending attempt to blame the Ft. Hood shooting on anything, and everything, but the shooter. First, Bush did it:

“Hasan's perspective is unknown. He had yet to fight abroad. But the accusations against him can't help but bring to mind the violence scarring military bases all over the country after the duration of two long, brutal wars.”

And here we get a policy suggestion:

“… it isn't much of a leap to argue that to further tax our military would do as much as anything to guarantee that the homegrown terror on display today could well repeat itself in the future.”

I’m sure this is just one small example of the flood breaking out of the MSM.

I agree.

"... the realization that human nature precludes utopian social arrangements ..."

Murderous Idealism
...
"The media's fleeting attention to the momentous events of the late 1980s and early 1990s matched their earlier indifference to communist systems. There is little public awareness of the large-scale atrocities, killings and human rights violations that occurred in communist states, especially compared with awareness of the Holocaust and Nazism (which led to to far fewer deaths)."
...
"In the aftermath of the fall of Soviet communism, many Western intellectuals remain convinced that capitalism is the root of all evil. There has been a long tradition of such animosity among Western intellectuals who gave the benefit of doubt or outright sympathy to political systems that denounced the profit motive and proclaimed their commitment to create a more humane and egalitarian society, and unselfish human beings. The failure of communist systems to improve human nature doesn't mean that all such attempts are doomed, but improvements will be modest and are unlikely to be attained by coercion."

Why I oppose heterosexual marriage (licensing):

The state shouldn’t be licensing marriage in the first place - hetero, homo, or otherwise, IMHO. The less licensing of EVERYTHING the better. Gay marriage legislation is an attempt to get the same special favors from the government as hetero marriage. Gay marriage IS legal - as is Tree marriage, Car marriage, Football marriage, etc., it’s just not state licensed! I’d like to purpose banning state licensing of ALL marriage, thank you. Besides, I’m single, if Gays and Straights have a license, why can’t I?
