2009 Brings Hope

Noooo, I’m not talking about Obama and his hollow promise of ‘Hope’, I’m talking about the real deal. Below is an article concerning the smartest guy across the pond… The Environment Minister Of Ireland. Enjoy…

I still think man-made climate change is a con

Wednesday, 31 December 2008

“Spending billions on trying to reduce carbon emissions is one giant con that is depriving third world countries of vital funds to tackle famine, HIV and other diseases, Sammy Wilson said.

The DUP minister has been heavily criticised by environmentalists for claiming that ongoing climatic shifts are down to nature and not mankind.

But while acknowledging his views on global warming may not be popular, the East Antrim MP said he was not prepared to be bullied by eco fundamentalists.

“I’ll not be stopped saying what I believe needs to be said about climate change,” he said.

“Most of the people who shout about climate change have not read one article about it

“I think in 20 years’ time we will look back at this whole climate change debate and ask ourselves how on earth were we ever conned into spending the billions of pounds which are going into this without any kind of rigorous examination of the background, the science, the implications of it all. Because there is now a degree of hysteria about it, fairly unformed hysteria I’ve got to say as well.

“I mean I get it in the Assembly all the time and most of the people who shout about climate change have not read one article about climate change, not read one book about climate change, if you asked them to explain how they believe there’s a connection between CO2 emission and the effects which they claim there’s going to be, if you ask them to explain the thought process or the modelling that is required and the assumptions behind that and how tenuous all the connections are, they wouldn’t have a clue.

“They simply get letters about it from all these lobby groups, it’s popular and therefore they go along with the flow — and that would be ok if there were no implications for it, but the implications are immense.”

He said while people in the western world were facing spiralling fuel bills as a result of efforts to cut CO2, the implications in poorer countries were graver.

“What are the problems that face us either locally and internationally. Are those not the things we should be concentrating on?” he asked.

“HIV, lack of clean water, which kills millions of people in third world countries, lack of education.

“A fraction of the money we are currently spending on climate change could actually eradicate those three problems alone, a fraction of it.

“I think as a society we sometimes need to get some of these things in perspective and when I listen to some of the rubbish that is spoken by some of my colleagues in the Assembly it amuses me at times and other times it angers me.”

Despite his views on CO2, Mr Wilson said he does not intend to backtrack on commitments made by his predecessor at the Department of the Environment, Arlene Foster, to make the Stormont estate carbon neutral.

He said while he wasn’t worried about reducing CO2 output, he said the policy would help to cut fuels bills.

“I don’t couch those actions in terms of reducing Co2 emissions,” he said. “I don’t care about Co2 emissions to be quite truthful because I don’t think it’s all that important but what I do believe is, and perhaps this is where there can be some convergence, as far as using fuel more efficiently that is good for our economy; that makes us more competitive. If we can save in schools hundreds of thousands on fuel that’s more money being put for books or classroom assistants.

“So yes there are things we can do. If you want to express it terms of carbon neutral, I just express it terms of making the place more efficient, less wasteful and hopefully that will release money to do the proper things that we should be doing.”  [end]

Obama vs Palin – Who’s Sexy?

30 12 2008

Ok, let me set this up just a little. Over on one of the liberal blogs, women (and some men) were cooing over the picture of a shirtless Obama on vacation. One lonely woman mentioned that she thought Todd Palin was better looking than Obama. As you might imagine, this started a war of words as to who was the sexiest looking man.

So ladies, this is for you… Below you will find a picture of both men and then a poll. Please take the poll and send this to your lady friends. This should be fun!

PHS – Palin Hatred Syndrome

30 12 2008

The announcement of Sarah Palin becoming a Grandmother over b9b44e64-f281-44a9-82e3-1a10ef787829the weekend really brought out the warm-hearted wishes, and loving kindness we have come to expect from the sickos on the left.

Sarah’s daughter had a baby boy this weekend, and I wish her and her soon-to-be Husband all the luck in the world in raising their new blessing of a child.

Now read how liberals look at the birth of their child…

 

“Anyone notice they are not married yet?”
Of course they aren’t married yet! The state of Alaska picked up the tab for Bristol’s pre-natal and birthing hospitalization costs and probably will pick up the baby’s health care for who knows how long -just as it is covering the health costs for a tremendously high-needs baby like Trig.

However the parents pay for the birth of their son… is none of your damn business. Besides, I highly doubt the validity of what this poster claims.

 
 These two are smart enough to grab the money and ignore marriage until whenever. As long as Mom’s health insurance is covering the four little Palins (Track or Trip or whatever his name is has military insurance), then I’ll bet you no one gets married.
Sarah will stay on some governmental payroll until she reaches Medicare age is my guess – unless Todd’s part-time drilling job has benefits.

People magazine has offered $300,000 dollars to the couple for the very first baby pics. According to liberal thinking… it’s ok to offer a slut like Madonna $1 million dollars for a baby pic, but because these are Palin kids, it’s verboten.

Maybe take some child development classes so she can be a better mother than her own mother. It takes a lot of work to break the cycle of dysfunction.

What a moronic statement! There is absolutely zero evidence that the Palins are a dysfunctional family. IMO, they are far from it.

Higher education isn’t exactly a Palin or Johnston family trait.

And just how the hell do you know that they won’t move on to higher education at a later date?

These two have been taught that if you play your cards right the public will pay their way just like sneaky Sarah.

Sneaky Sarah? Being an idiot, I guess this person missed the memo about how McCain ASKED HER to be in the spotlight, not the other way around.

This is nothing but a glorification of unprotected teenage s e x.

OMG!!!

After using Baby Trig as a campaign prop, why should anyone be surprised that Mom’s kid has a similar taste for pandering? These people are low class.

Your stupid comment is what is low class.

Sarah made sure her little props were at almost every event.

You mean like Flags, Podium, Microphones, etc, right? 

Like mother like daughter. Except Bristol doesn’t seem to be a huge narcissist. Oh well, they’ll need all the help they can get.

Let’s see… Narcissism describes the trait of excessive self-love, based on self-image or ego. I looked this up for the exact meaning of the word and found a picture of Barack Obama next to it.

I feel very sorry for Bristol and all of Sarah Palin’s kids. Not surprising they have been getting themselves in trouble.

Now liberals claim that babies are “trouble”. I see them as blessings!

I feel sorry for them too. I was disgusted by the way they treated Bristol.

Yeah, I get disgusted too when parents stand behind and support their children. Jerk!

Palin put her family on the stage and humiliated her daughter so don’t now try to make people who comment on this situation out to be the bad guys.

It’s people like you that give bad guys a bad name.

These are disgusting, grabby people who stand behind their religion to excuse bad behavior.
looks like daughter is following her mother’s footsteps.

Just one more meaningless comment from a loving, caring, liberal. Is anyone surprised that I have a deep disdain for liberals?

Mid-East Education

30 12 2008

I found this post by a fellow blogger over at NewsBusters.org it’s an excellent historical summary of Israeli and Palestinian claims.

Posted by Doc_Navy

I am not a Historian, but what I DO know about the Isreal/Palastine conflict is mired in TWO seperate historical actions. (This will be a big post)

FIRST: For the religious folks out there. You can point to the Bible and say “God gave them that land. The Jews are the chosen people”, which is fine. Of course you need to keep in mind that the land that the Hebrews (Ha’piru) invaded when they left Egypt (Land of Goshen), then known as Canaan ~WAS ALREADY POPULATED~. The Canaanites who lived there before the Hebrews came on the scene were the decendants of the Amorites,  Hittites and Mycenae. If you follow the Bible, there are a number of wars where the Hebrews pretty much wiped-out most of the Canaanites. It is estimated that king David conquered Jerusalem about 1000 BC thus consolidating the land and established an Israelite kingdom over much of Canaan including parts of Transjordan. The kingdom was divided into Judea in the south and Israel in the north following the death of David’s son, Solomon.

It is also around this time, approx. 1150 BC, that the word “Palestine” begins to show up. Palestine is a derivative of the Greek word “Palaestina” which is the Greek name for the people we know as the Philistines which, translated from the Greek, means “People of the Sea” or “Invaders from the Sea” respectively. These Philistines were of AEGEAN decent, and had settled in the southern coastal plains of Canaan (Gaza Strip), in the 12th century BC, their territory being named Philistia. You can read about the Hebrew (Isrealite) battles with the Philistines in the Biblical stories of Samson, Samuel, Saul and David which all include accounts of Philistine-Israelite conflicts.

**NOTE** It is important to note that the current people now known as “Palestinians” are in NO WAY related to or decended from the original “Philistines”.

“So where do the Muslims come in to play?”, you may ask. The answer is that during the seventh century (A.D. 600’s), Muslim  Arab armies moved north from Arabia to conquer most of the Middle East, including Palestine. Jerusalem was conquered about 638 by the Caliph Umar (Omar) who gave his protection to its inhabitants. Muslim powers controlled the region until the early 1900’s. The rulers allowed Christians and Jews to keep their religions. However, most of the local population gradually accepted Islam and the Arab-Islamic culture of their rulers. Jerusalem (Al-Quds)  became holy to Muslims as the site where, according to tradition, Muhammad ascended to heaven after a miraculous overnight ride from Mecca on his horse Al-Buraq. The al-Aqsa mosque was built on the site generally regarded as the area of the Jewish temples

SECOND: Regardless of the religious aspects of the “Ownership” of the areas around modern Isreal, Lebanon, and Jordan there are the modern legalities to consider. History shows that those areas have periodically come under the control of the Greeks, Assyrians, Babylon, Persians, Maccabeans, Romans, Byzantine Empire, Turks, and British. The one thing that stands out throughout all this time is that Jewish settlements can be found in the area known today as “Isreal”.

Nevertheless, The Balfour Declaration – In November 1917, before Britain had conquered Jerusalem and the area to be known as Palestine, Britain issued the Balfour Declaration. The declaration was a letter addressed to Lord Rothschild, based on a request of the Zionist organization in Great Britain. The declaration stated Britain’s support for the creation of a Jewish national home in Palestine, without violating the civil and religious rights of the existing non-Jewish communities. The declaration was the result of lobbying by the small British Zionist movement, especially by Dr. Chaim Weizmann, who had emigrated from Russia to Britain, but it was motivated by British strategic considerations. After WWI, the League of Nations divided much of the Ottoman Empire into mandated territories. The British and French saw the Mandates as instruments of imperial ambitions. US President Wilson insisted that the mandates must foster eventual independence. The British were anxious to keep Palestine away from the French, and decided to ask for a mandate that would implement the Jewish national home of the Balfour declaration, a project that would be supported by the Americans. The League of Nations agreed with the Balfour Declaration giving a provisional mandate to Great Britain over the Country of “Palestine” in 1920. At this point the borders of Plaestine would extend west and east of the River Jordan. The area of the mandate given to Britain at the San Remo conference was much larger than historic Palestine as envisaged by the Zionists, who had sought an eastern border to the West of Amman.  The mandate, based on the Balfour declaration, was formalized in 1922. The British were to help the Jews build a national home and promote the creation of self-governing institutions. The mandate provided for an agency, later called “The Jewish Agency for Palestine,” that would represent Jewish interests in Palestine to the British and to promote Jewish immigration.

In 1922, after an attack by Abdullah, the son of King Husayn of the Hijaz, the British declared that the boundary of Palestine would be limited to the area west of the river. The area east of the river, called Transjordan (now Jordan), was made a separate British mandate and eventually given independence. Jewish immigration swelled in the 1930s into the state of Palestine due to perceived persecution in Eastern Europe. The British introduced 1939 White Paper decreed that 15,000 Jews would be allowed to enter Palestine each year for five years. Thereafter, immigration would be subject to Arab approval. Unfortuneately, WWII broke out, and the borders of Palestine were shut by the Arabs. As a result there was a period of time that Euopean Jews illegaly immegrated to Palestine. By the end of WWII and in no small part because of the Holocaust, in 1947 The UN Special Commision on Palestine reccomended that the country be divided into two seperate states, one Arab, one Jewish. The UN General Assembly adopted this plan under GA 181. The Jews accepted this plan but the Arabs rejected it.

In 1948, after much insurgent fighting between the Arab “Palestinians” and the Jewish “Palestinians” the Jews proclaimed the independent State of Israel, and the British withdrew from Palestine. In the following days and weeks, neighboring Arab nations invaded Palestine and Israel (click here for map). The fighting was conducted in several brief periods, punctuated by cease fire agreements ( truces were declared June 11 to July 8, 1948 and July 19- October 15, 1948). The Arabs and Palestinians lost their initial advantage when they failed to organize and unite. When the fighting ended in 1949, Israel held territories beyond the boundaries set by the UN plan – a total of 78% of the area west of the Jordan river. The Arab countries refused to sign a permanent peace treaty with Israel. Consequently, the borders of Israel established by the armistice commission never received de jure (legal) international recognition. Arabs call the defeat and exile of the Palestinian Arabs in 1948 the Nakba (disaster).

Finally, On May 30, 1967 Jordan signed a defense pact with Egypt, readying itself for war. Nasser stated: “The armies of Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon are poised on the borders of Israel…to face the challenge, while standing behind us are the armies of Iraq, Algeria, Kuwait, Sudan and the whole Arab nation. This act will astound the world. Today they will know that the Arabs are arranged for battle, the critical hour has arrived. We have reached the stage of serious action and not declarations.”. When it became apparent that Egypt would not stand down, Israel attacked the Egyptians beginning on June 5, 1967. In the first hours of the war, Israel destroyed over 400 enemy aircraft to achieve total air superiority. Israeli troops quickly conquered the Sinai Peninsula and Gaza. Jordanian artillery began firing at Jerusalem on the first day of the war, despite a warning by Israeli PM Levi Eshkol to stay out of the war, and then the Jordan Legion advanced and took over the headquarters of the UN (Governor’s house – Armon Hanatziv ) in Jerusalem. After warning King Hussein repeatedly to cease fire and withdraw, Israel conquered the West Bank and Jerusalem. During the first days of the war, Syrian artillery based in the Golan Heights pounded civilian targets in northern Israel. After dealing with Egypt, Israel decided to conquer the Golan heights, despite opposition and doubts of some in the government, including Moshe Dayan, who had been appointed defense minister. (see map of territories occupied in 1967) and despite the fact that the UN had already called for a cease fire.  Israel agreed to a cease fire on June 10, 1967 after conquering the Golan Heights. UN Resolution 242 called for negotiations of a permanent peace between the parties, and for Israeli withdrawal from lands occupied in 1967. 

I could go into the Yom Kippur War, which the Arabs lost, or the 1982 war in Lebanon, which the Arabs also lost, but the main point here being that as of 1967 the borders and current “Owners” of the land now known as “Isreal” were defined and found in favor of the Jews.

Waving Goodbye To America

29 12 2008

Once again a well deserved h/t to Giovanniworld member Eowyn.waving-goodbye

The night we waved goodbye to America… our last best hope on Earth.

By Peter Hitchens
Anyone would think we had just elected a hip, skinny and youthful replacement for God, with a plan to modernise Heaven and Hell – or that at the very least John Lennon had come back from the dead.

The swooning frenzy over the choice of Barack Obama as President of the United States must be one of the most absurd waves of self-deception and swirling fantasy ever to sweep through an advanced civilisation. At least Mandela-worship – its nearest equivalent – is focused on a man who actually did something.

I really don’t see how the Obama devotees can ever in future mock the Moonies, the Scientologists or people who claim to have been abducted in flying saucers. This is a cult like the one which grew up around Princess Diana, bereft of reason and hostile to facts.

It already has all the signs of such a thing. The newspapers which recorded Obama’s victory have become valuable relics. You may buy Obama picture books and Obama calendars and if there isn’t yet a children’s picture version of his story, there soon will be.

Proper books, recording his sordid associates, his cowardly voting record, his astonishingly militant commitment to unrestricted abortion and his blundering trip to Africa, are little-read and hard to find.

If you can believe that this undistinguished and conventionally Left-wing machine politician is a sort of secular saviour, then you can believe anything. He plainly doesn’t believe it himself. His cliche-stuffed, PC clunker of an acceptance speech suffered badly from nerves.  It was what you would expect from someone who knew he’d promised too much and that from now on the easy bit was over.

He needn’t worry too much. From now on, the rough boys and girls of America’s Democratic Party apparatus, many recycled from Bill Clinton’s stained and crumpled entourage, will crowd round him, to collect the rich spoils of his victory and also tell him what to do, which is what he is used to.

Just look at his sermon by the shores of Lake Michigan. He really did talk about a ‘new dawn’, and a ‘timeless creed’ (which was ‘yes, we can’). He proclaimed that ‘change has come’. He revealed that, despite having edited the Harvard Law Review, he doesn’t know what ‘enormity’ means. He reached depths of oratorical drivel never even plumbed by our own Mr Blair, burbling about putting our hands on the arc of history (or was it the ark of history?) and bending it once more toward the hope of a better day (Don’t try this at home).

I am not making this up. No wonder that awful old hack Jesse Jackson sobbed as he watched. How he must wish he, too, could get away with this sort of stuff.

And it was interesting how the President-elect failed to lift his admiring audience by repeated – but rather hesitant – invocations of the brainless slogan he was forced by his minders to adopt against his will – ‘Yes, we can’. They were supposed to thunder ‘Yes, we can!’ back at him, but they just wouldn’t join in.  No wonder. Yes we can what exactly? Go home and keep a close eye on the tax rate, is my advice. He’d have been better off bursting into ‘I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony’ which contains roughly the same message and might have attracted some valuable commercial sponsorship.

Perhaps, being a Chicago crowd, they knew some of the things that 52.5 per cent of America prefers not to know. They know Obama is the obedient servant of one of the most squalid and unshakeable political machines in America. They know that one of his alarmingly close associates, a state-subsidised slum landlord called Tony Rezko, has been convicted on fraud and corruption charges.

They also know the US is just as segregated as it was before Martin Luther King – in schools, streets, neighbourhoods, holidays, even in its TV-watching habits and its choice of fast-food joint. The difference is that it is now done by unspoken agreement rather than by law.

If Mr Obama’s election had threatened any of that, his feel-good white supporters would have scuttled off and voted for John McCain, or practically anyone. But it doesn’t. Mr Obama, thanks mainly to the now-departed grandmother he alternately praised as a saint and denounced as a racial bigot, has the huge advantages of an expensive private education. He did not have to grow up in the badlands of useless schools, shattered families and gangs which are the lot of so many young black men of his generation.

If the nonsensical claims made for this election were true, then every positive discrimination programme aimed at helping black people into jobs they otherwise wouldn’t get should be abandoned forthwith. Nothing of the kind will happen. On the contrary, there will probably be more of them.

And if those who voted for Obama were all proving their anti-racist nobility, that presumably means that those many millions who didn’t vote for him were proving themselves to be hopeless bigots. This is obviously untrue.

I was in Washington DC the night of the election. America’s beautiful capital has a sad secret. It is perhaps the most racially divided city in the world, with 15th Street – which runs due north from the White House – the unofficial frontier between black and white. But, like so much of America, it also now has a new division, and one which is in many ways much more important. I had attended an election-night party in a smart and liberal white area, but was staying the night less than a mile away on the edge of a suburb where Spanish is spoken as much as English, plus a smattering of tongues from such places as Ethiopia, Somalia and Afghanistan.

As I walked, I crossed another of Washington’s secret frontiers. There had been a few white people blowing car horns and shouting, as the result became clear. But among the Mexicans, Salvadorans and the other Third World nationalities, there was something like ecstasy.

They grasped the real significance of this moment. They knew it meant that America had finally switched sides in a global cultural war. Forget the Cold War, or even the Iraq War. The United States, having for the most part a deeply conservative people, had until now just about stood out against many of the mistakes which have ruined so much of the rest of the world.

Suspicious of welfare addiction, feeble justice and high taxes, totally committed to preserving its own national sovereignty, unabashedly Christian in a world part secular and part Muslim, suspicious of the Great Global Warming panic, it was unique.

These strengths had been fading for some time, mainly due to poorly controlled mass immigration and to the march of political correctness. They had also been weakened by the failure of America’s conservative party – the Republicans – to fight on the cultural and moral fronts.

They preferred to posture on the world stage. Scared of confronting Left-wing teachers and sexual revolutionaries at home, they could order soldiers to be brave on their behalf in far-off deserts. And now the US, like Britain before it, has begun the long slow descent into the Third World. How sad. Where now is our last best hope on Earth?[end]

Diseased Government?

29 12 2008

Written by fellow blogger and Giovanniworld member Dan Scott.

 By Dan Scott  Munchausen’s by Proxy

As a normal person viewing the entire taxation and government benefit program structure one could not blame them as concluding it is a Rube Goldberg approach to governance. Government policy or more accurately liberal policy is about taking money only to give it back in a convoluted scheme to somehow bring about equality. A myriad of taxes are taken at every level of business and personal activity. This is justified under the guise of government meeting the needs of the people. To decide whose needs the government should be serving, groups of people are stereotyped and assigned victim status being called the poor. The poor it is said needs the government to help them because poverty is not a choice but an accident of birth. The logic goes like this, if you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth, you obviously will want for nothing since your caretakers will meet all your needs and give you every advantage to succeed in life whether that be a guaranteed income for life, a job in the family business, a higher education to work a well paying job, good health care, etc. On the other hand if that same baby were born into a poor household, he/she would have none of those advantages and therefore is it unfair. Since America is a wealthy society, it falls upon society to make it fair by giving everyone a chance to be equally successful.

 On the surface such an argument about equality may make some sense until you delve into it’s assumptions. The first assumption is about poverty and wealth being an accident. Neither is an accident, making bad financial decisions doesn’t make you wealthy nor does making good financial decisions make you poor. Success is a choice, not an accident. This is called sophistry, making false assertions using false arguments. It follows that parents are responsible for the care of their offspring and therefore how that parent carries out that responsibility affects the outcome. It is the parent’s responsibility to make good decisions that will benefit the child and themselves. The ability of a parent to give equal opportunity as another parent is an impossibility. The ability of one individual to be equal in every way (both mentally and physically) to another one let alone an entire nation of individuals is also impossible. Inequality is a fact of life and therefore to demand what is impossible is sophistry. The equality argument advanced by liberals is based on the fallacious impossible premise of total equality. The equality as advanced by the Constitution and Declaration of Independence is one of opportunity under the Law with limitations on “government’s ability” of giving one group or individual more to one than others.

Since neither the Constitution gave any hint that any of the current social welfare programs were even envisioned when crafted by the founding fathers nor was there any hint in the first decades of the Republic of such programs we can definitely say that Socialism in any form was not a function of government. Of course modern times breeds modern needs but if it were a matter of poverty then can anyone reasonably argue that masses of people were materially poorer now than at the beginning of the Republic? Finally let’s address the other demonstrably false assertion, America is a wealthy society. As a society we are now in debt some $10 trillion. In what universe is being in debt with no chance of repayment wealthy? This is where the whole argument falls apart, if America were a wealthy country it would not be in the position it were today. The fact that the government could not tax enough to pay as it went to keep a balanced budget without destroying the economy demonstrates even a modest attempt at  Socialism fails. For if Socialism were successful and government is the prime mover of the economy then why don’t politicians simply pass a law putting a million dollars in an account for every child at birth to make everyone equally wealthy? We all know why they can’t and so Socialism fails even the most basic attempt at their sophist equality. Just to put a fine point on it, if deficit spending is so good for the economy then why did we go into a recession in the first place? We were running $400 billion plus annual deficits for the past two years.

But let’s put all this aside and consider some other realities. In order to fund all the government programs from food stamps to housing assistance that is purportedly for the benefit of the poor it must tax, borrow or print money. Currently, liberal Democrats are in denial regarding the Bush tax cuts of 2003, since that cut in the marginal rates, the economy increased and tax revenue increased by $1 trillion over previous years. The current recession is one of the Democrat’s making, engaging in ruinous lending standards that put economically marginal people in dire straights and also creating a housing bubble with easy mortgages. This on top of the domestic drilling ban creating an artificial shortage of energy supplies thus driving up their prices, forcing employers to cut costs by putting people out of work.  Raising energy prices forces up the cost living putting a squeeze on the poor.

So the Democrats are in a pickle, choose between their precious  AGW cultism or driving the poor into total destitution by raising the cost of living with the drilling ban and eviscerating jobs by raising taxes yet more and energy costs to boot. The Democrat’s solution,  sprinkle down economics  by handing out money to those at the bottom in a vain attempt to offset their own incompetence. In the meantime, the budget deficits spiral out of control increasing the pressure to print more money. Now why would politicians put themselves in  an obviously bad position in the first place? It’s not like this wasn’t foreseeable, they were warned many times and did nothing to prevent the economic meltdown. Yet the public didn’t see it that way?

The real issue for politicians has never been about the public good, it is about getting credit for the appearance of being the benevolent benefactor.  Credit comes in the form of public†acknowledgment and being re-elected.  What we have is dysfunctional governance by a group of manipulators whose prime mission is to engineer failure in order to ride to the rescue. What I’m describing is the political version of Munchausen’s by Proxy. You think this is a leap of logic?  Consider the medical description of Munchausen syndrome

fake symptoms of illness in her child by adding blood to the child’s urine or stool, withholding food, falsifying fevers, surreptitiously giving emetics or cathartics to simulate vomiting or diarrhea, or using other maneuvers (such as infecting IV lines to make the child appear or become ill)…Munchausen syndrome occurs because of psychological problems in the adult, and is generally an attention-seeking behavior.
 

Politicians are continually seeking attention for re-election purposes, attention is gotten by solving problems, if there is no problem then why do we need them? Thus their primary goal is to get re-elected not govern responsibly. Conservatives have name for such people in the Republican Party, we call them RINOs – Republican In Name Only. Characterized by overly helpful behavior such as bipartisanship. To achieve bipartisanship you must compromise with the Democrat agenda (Socialism and self interest) and thus in the process incrementally advance that agenda at the expense of your constituency.

Now let’s combine this with the public’s seeming A.D.D. – Attention Deficit Disorder, characterized by the inability to stay focused on the problem, exhibiting short term memory loss and lacking the discipline to follow through on projects. A classic example of the public’s A.D.D. was the initial bail out of the banks, the public decried Congress’s attempt the first time, Congress reacted with fear by voting it down and then promptly voted for another bail out worse than the first. What was the public’s response? They voted in the very people who voted for the bail outs. In another example of A.D.D., we have the mortgage meltdown,  Barack Obama voted to block reforms of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 2005, he arguably is one of the parties responsible for the mortgage meltdown and yet he won the general election for President. Creating failure is success. Go figure? No experience, perfect man for the job, how can he do worse?

The very Democrat Party that engineered the recession is now the same Party promising to cure the country’s ills by engaging in more deficit spending, increasing taxes and raising the price of energy. Is the public just gullible enough to fall for it yet again? What is it going to take for the public to see failure is not success? I fear the only thing that will get the public to remember long enough and act decisively is another grand economic failure on the order of Jimmy Carter. It was Carter’s utter incompetence that finally convinced the public that Ronald Reagan couldn’t do worse as President even if they didn’t understand at the time the whole concept of lowering taxes to boost the economy which would create more tax revenue. If you lived through the 1970s you know exactly what I’m talking about, if you didn’t, well… you’re about to.[end]

Obama Not Happy

Obama bristles as the bubble closes in
By CAROL E. LEE | 12/28/08 7:05 AM
Obama appears conscious of the confines of his new position, bristling at the routine press demands.
http://www.politico.com/

The entire article was reprinted at most of the liberal blogs on the net yesterday. As I was reading some of the comments, there were two that stood out. Enjoy…

“I feel bad for the guy because he is not a celebrity and he said on 60 minutes a few weeks ago that he misses the annonimity. The guy went from somoene no one knows to being someone on the world stage practically over night. We should cut him some slack on this because being President is not like being a movie star. You dont enter it so you can be popular, famous and rich you enter it to fix the country to make things better and this celebrity stuff is just something he has to get use to. I suspect this will be an issue throughout his Presidency.”

Obama NOT a celebrity? Give me a break!

“This wildly out-of-control media frenzy was, IN PART, what led to Princess Diana’s early demise. Are we going to allow history to repeat itself???”

Hmmmm?

Israeli Attack Confusion?

28 12 2008

I’m a simple guy. I follow the rules, pay my taxes, and spend alot s-hamas-largeof time educating myself on all manner of issues. Then of course I come here and give my very opinionated opinion of these issues.

The issue I have been reading about today is the Israeli / Palestinian seemingly endless conflict. Actually, I have been following this issue for many years, but the past few days has me thinking about it once again.

While surfing some internet sites today I came across this headline… Hamas Calls For Martyrdom After…blah, blah, blah”. If you know me, you know that the “blah, blah, blah” part was an edit by me. Knowing the history of this endless conflict I’m starting to wonder if I have a too simplistic view of what’s happening, and what I think should happen. Anyway, I would like to ask a very simple question related to the latest actions taken by the Israeli’s and then ask you to give your opinion. I’m very curious to see where this thread goes.

The Sky Is Falling – NOT!

27 12 2008

This is gonna make my New Year much more enjoyable…

2008 was the year man-made global warming was disproved

Looking back over my columns of the past 12 months, one of their major themes was neatly encapsulated by two recent items from The Daily Telegraph.

By Christopher Booker
Last Updated: 5:51PM GMT 27 Dec 2008

“The first, on May 21, headed “Climate change threat to Alpine ski resorts” , reported that the entire Alpine “winter sports industry” could soon “grind to a halt for lack of snow”. The second, on December 19, headed “The Alps have best snow conditions in a generation” , reported that this winter’s Alpine snowfalls “look set to beat all records by New Year’s Day”.

Easily one of the most important stories of 2008 has been all the evidence suggesting that this may be looked back on as the year when there was a turning point in the great worldwide panic over man-made global warming. Just when politicians in Europe and America have been adopting the most costly and damaging measures politicians have ever proposed, to combat this supposed menace, the tide has turned in three significant respects.

First, all over the world, temperatures have been dropping in a way wholly unpredicted by all those computer models which have been used as the main drivers of the scare. Last winter, as temperatures plummeted, many parts of the world had snowfalls on a scale not seen for decades. This winter, with the whole of Canada and half the US under snow, looks likely to be even worse. After several years flatlining, global temperatures have dropped sharply enough to cancel out much of their net rise in the 20th century.

Ever shriller and more frantic has become the insistence of the warmists, cheered on by their army of media groupies such as the BBC, that the last 10 years have been the “hottest in history” and that the North Pole would soon be ice-free – as the poles remain defiantly icebound and those polar bears fail to drown. All those hysterical predictions that we are seeing more droughts and hurricanes than ever before have infuriatingly failed to materialise.

Even the more cautious scientific acolytes of the official orthodoxy now admit that, thanks to “natural factors” such as ocean currents, temperatures have failed to rise as predicted (although they plaintively assure us that this cooling effect is merely “masking the underlying warming trend”, and that the temperature rise will resume worse than ever by the middle of the next decade).

Secondly, 2008 was the year when any pretence that there was a “scientific consensus” in favour of man-made global warming collapsed. At long last, as in the Manhattan Declaration last March, hundreds of proper scientists, including many of the world’s most eminent climate experts, have been rallying to pour scorn on that “consensus” which was only a politically engineered artefact, based on ever more blatantly manipulated data and computer models programmed to produce no more than convenient fictions.

Thirdly, as banks collapsed and the global economy plunged into its worst recession for decades, harsh reality at last began to break in on those self-deluding dreams which have for so long possessed almost every politician in the western world. As we saw in this month’s Poznan conference, when 10,000 politicians, officials and “environmentalists” gathered to plan next year’s “son of Kyoto” treaty in Copenhagen, panicking politicians are waking up to the fact that the world can no longer afford all those quixotic schemes for “combating climate change” with which they were so happy to indulge themselves in more comfortable times.

Suddenly it has become rather less appealing that we should divert trillions of dollars, pounds and euros into the fantasy that we could reduce emissions of carbon dioxide by 80 per cent. All those grandiose projects for “emissions trading”, “carbon capture”, building tens of thousands more useless wind turbines, switching vast areas of farmland from producing food to “biofuels”, are being exposed as no more than enormously damaging and futile gestures, costing astronomic sums we no longer possess.

As 2009 dawns, it is time we in Britain faced up to the genuine crisis now fast approaching from the fact that – unless we get on very soon with building enough proper power stations to fill our looming “energy gap” – within a few years our lights will go out and what remains of our economy will judder to a halt. After years of infantile displacement activity, it is high time our politicians – along with those of the EU and President Obama’s US – were brought back with a mighty jolt into contact with the real world.

I must end this year by again paying tribute to my readers for the wonderful generosity with which they came to the aid of two causes. First their donations made it possible for the latest “metric martyr”, the east London market trader Janet Devers, to fight Hackney council’s vindictive decision to prosecute her on 13 criminal charges, ranging from selling in pounds and ounces to selling produce “by the bowl” (to avoid using weights her customers dislike and don’t understand). The embarrassment caused by this historic battle has thrown the forced metrication policy of both our governments, in London and Brussels, into total disarray.

Since Hackney backed out of allowing four criminal charges against Janet to go before a jury next month, all that remains is for her to win her appeal in February against eight convictions which now look quite absurd (including those for selling veg by the bowl, as thousands of other London market traders do every day). The final goal, as Neil Herron of the Metric Martyrs Defence Fund insists, must then be a pardon for the late Steve Thoburn and the four other original “martyrs” who were found guilty in 2002 – after a legal battle also made possible by this column’s readers – of breaking laws so ridiculous that the EU Commission has even denied they existed (but which are still on the statute book).

Readers were equally generous this year in rushing to the aid of Sue Smith, whose son was killed in a Snatch Land Rover in Iraq in 2005. Their contributions made it possible for her to carry on with the High Court action she has brought against the Ministry of Defence, with the sole aim of calling it to account for needlessly risking soldiers’ lives by sending them into battle in hopelessly inappropriate vehicles. Thanks not least to Mrs Smith’s determined fight, the Snatch Land Rover scandal, first reported here in 2006, has at last become a national cause celebre.

May I finally thank all those readers who have written to me in 2008 – so many that, as usual, it has not been possible to answer all their messages. But their support and information has been hugely appreciated. May I wish them and all of you a happy (if globally not too warm) New Year.” [end]

Al Gore Wants You & Your Money!

27 12 2008

If you want to know what the Ecofascists are up to, do what I gored_editeddid… sign up for their mailings at his stupid www.wecandoit. com site. From time to time you will receive urgent messages like the one below, and you can go to their website and see what types of nonsense and bogus science they are pushing on their mind numb followers.

I’m posting this just because it gives me an opportunity to poke fun at them. Enjoy…

“Dear Friend,

Will you support our campaign?

We have a truly important year coming up.

First, the good news: we’re making progress. President-electObama has committed to make the climate crisisa top priority of his new administration. He has spoken of the urgent need to Repower America. He has chosen an energy and environmental leadership team with the experience and know-how to lead from Washington.

Can someone tell me what “climate crisis”? This beautiful ball we call earth has had climate changes for millions of years, and unless we get wiped out by some rogue meteor, I suspect we will have climate change for many more millions of years. Giving money to Al Gore will NOT change this!!!

Now the bad news: the entrenched special interests will work tirelessly to stymie the progress the new administration is seeking to make. If the past is any indicator, they will invest hundreds of millions of dollars lobbying and advertising to stop policies that will protect the planet from the ravages of climate change. Turning the ship of Washington will require the voices of change to be louder than the advocates for the status quo.

I love this one… “entrenched special interests” I guess they mean clear thinking people like you and I. You gotta give them credit though, they use every chance they get to scare the pants off of people. The above paragraph is a prime example with…”protect the planet from the ravages of climate change”.Ooooh, I’m so scared now!

Now is clearly the time for decisive steps to Repower America with 100% clean electricity within ten years. With your support, our campaign will be ready to act when the new Congress and the Obama team begin work on January 21st. Will you help us make the most of this opportunity?

100% clean energy in ten years is absolute nonsense. There is only one way this is even remotely possible, and as you may have already guessed, it would mean we as a nation would be wiped out financially for many decades. Hell, it could take as along as 40-50 years for us to recover from the hellish taxes and the loss of millions of jobs. What we would end up with is the cleanest energy in the world that NOBODY COULD AFFORD! Obama is fond of saying things like… “We will create millions of green jobs”. What he doesn’t tell you is that many millions of other jobs would disappear in the Oil, Gas, and Coal industries. The Great Depression will end up looking like a day at the Beach..

Please make a tax-deductible year-end gift by December 31st to make 2009 the key year in repowering America

This is how your tax deductible gift will be spent… They will use the money they raise for two purposes. One of course will be to fatten their own pockets. The other is more insidious. Congress will be pressured by the most radical group of Lobbyists this country has ever seen. They will push Congress HARD, to implement laws and provide money to go green. This means that Congress will bow down to them by doing the one thing that nobody can afford… tax this country into third world status. So, if you want to give them money to help them pressure Congress to raise your taxes by as much as 30% or more, then by all means, show us how stupid you are and send them a check!

The truth is, the first 100 days of the new administration will be critical. And we aim to be busy.

Our Repower America campaign will be driving home the message that the solutions are within our reach — that halting climate change means creating millions of jobs.

Did you catch that last sentence? Think this through for just a moment…”halting climate change”. Who the hell are they kidding? We humans CANNOT HALT climate change! If someone can tell me how you halt climate change, and more importantly, why you would halt it, I will personally start a petition to make you a Nobel Prize nominee!

Our Reality campaign will underscore that coal isn’t ‘clean’ until it captures and safely stores its carbon pollution.

Here we go again… carbon is NOT a pollutant. Without carbon we will all die!!!

These campaigns are big — and they must be: we need national paid advertising, online organizing, grassroots partnerships with new and powerful constituencies like labor, the faith communities and university students.

Reminds me more of propaganda.

As you have heard me say, there is a common thread linking the nation’s major economic, security and climate challenges: our addiction to carbon based fuels. There is also a common solution: a wholesale shift to truly clean sources of energy. If undertaken immediately this shift can be the country’s ticket out of economic malaise. As you know, an effort of this scale during these pressing times will require all voices to influence the debate.

Hold on there Al, you are one of the people that stated that the “debate is over”. Jerk.

This is why we need to speak up more forcefully than ever. I know you’ve invested a lot so far. Can you spare a little more?

Click here to make a year-end donation to support our 2009 campaign by December 31st:

 Yes, I changed their email address slightly to reflect reality.

It’s been a few short months since we launched the We Campaign in April, and we are now more than 2 million strong. This is great progress. I believe the momentum is on our side.

Do we really have 2 million people in this country that are this stupid?

With your help, we will hit the ground running in January. I have the hope and optimism that 2009 will bring the change that we worked so hard for this past year. We can indeed Repower America.

Thank you so much. Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year,

My 2009 wish is… Al Gore and his “we” organization falls flat on their faces!

Guerrilla Snowzilla rises overnight

26-shootout_blog_1_1230063170_standalone_prod_affiliate_71

By ELIZABETH BLUEMINK | ebluemink@adn.com

 

Snowzilla the giant snowman came back from the dead, bigger than ever, this morning after some determined pranksters defied city orders and rebuilt him overnight.

Until yesterday, the controversial and world-famous snowman was a pile of snow debris in an East Anchorage front yard.

Snowzilla seemed to be a dead issue after city code enforcers declared it a nuisance and safety hazard a few weeks ago — before this winter’s version was constructed.

Officials banned Snowzilla’s creators, the Powers family, from “the building, enlargement or any other action ascribed with the construction of the extraordinarily large snowman,” according to the city order.

Nevertheless, Snowzilla is back in a big way. It’s about 25 feet tall, sporting a new corncob pipe and carrot nose.

It’s clear the snowman was built quickly: It’s looking a little lumpier than it did in previous incarnations.

If city enforcers pay Snowzilla a visit today, homeowner Billy Powers said, he will tell them the snowman’s return was the result of Christmas magic.

Lead code enforcement officer Richard Fern said it’s unlikely the city will take any immediate action, but he’s awaiting final word from higher-ups.

Fern said the reason the city got involved was because of angry complaints from a neighbor last year. The city didn’t do anything about it then but decided to take action a few weeks ago after it looked like the snowman was going to be even taller this year.

Powers declined to discuss who built the snowman or how many people helped it appear “magically” overnight. He declined to say whether his own family was involved.

Snowzilla has never before been built so quickly, he said.

Several people who drove by the Powers house this morning gave the monster snowman a big smile and thumbs-up.

“I think it’s sad that we live in a community that would stop someone from building a snowman,” said Jason Palmer, who stopped for a moment to check out Snowzilla while making a flower delivery in the neighborhood.

Amen!

Hot Obama Love

22 12 2008

This post almost made me puke. You’ll see…

The above picture (Obama on vacation this week in Hawaii) was posted at one of the liberal blogs that think Obama is the second coming of Christ. Without further comment, let’s get right to their somewhat racy comments. Note: For this particular post I left some of the commenters net/nick names in all their glory. You will understand why after reading.

As always, enjoy…

More Dumb Ecofascist Propaganda

22 12 2008

I’m not going to ask you  to go through the video below, unless of 1632-ugly-people-4_editedcourse you want to, but it’s there if you need any proof for what I’m about to tell you.

The video is a tad over 5 minutes long. Fortunately, the Ecodummy that made this little informative piece put’s their name on it at the very beginning of the vid. At least we know who this dummy is.

If you can stand it long enough, at exactly 3 minutes and 22 seconds into the video, the maker of this video put’s up a graphic stating… [Quote: Neil Armstrong once said.. ‘I Have A Dream…’ “ [End quote]

Over 14,000 people viewed this video on YouTube with around 50 people leaving comments for and against this video. Out of the 50 that did comment, only a few ever caught the BS in the quote about Neil Armstrong. These few people correctly attributed that quote to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I wonder how many of the 14,000 viewers have been permanently dumbed down because of this stupid vid?

Christmas Classics

20 12 2008

With all the turmoil in the world, it’s a good time for us to reflect on the meaning of Christmas and wish peace on earth and goodwill towards man.

I recognize your right to believe, without ridicule, that there is no God.  I do not recognize any right for you to ridicule my belief in God.

I’ve copied some Christmas classics to help you get in the mood.

Enjoy and embrace the spirit!

This first one is a personal favorite of mine. Turn up the volume and let the spirit move you.

Josh Groban’s Rendition of “Little Drummer Boy”
Incredible voice…

Dean Martin “Let It Snow”

Frank Sinatra “A Merry Little Christmas”

Burl Ives “A Holly Jolly Christmas”

We Are So Screwed!

20 12 2008

I realize the title for this piece is getting rather old as far as sayings go, but I could not think of anything else that really fit the bill. The simple fact is… we are screwed! Ok, here it is…

jokermoney_2

Obama picks global warming expert as science adviser

WASHINGTON — “President-elect Barack Obama’s choice of John P. Holdren as his science adviser sends a strong signal that Obama sees global warming as an urgent problem and wants bold suggestions for action.

At a recent talk in Washington , Holdren boiled it down to this:

“Without energy there is no economy. Without climate there is no environment. Without economy and environment there’s no material well-being, there’s no civil society, there’s no personal or national or international security. And the problem is that the way we’ve been getting the energy our economies need is wrecking the climate that our environment needs. That is the essence of the problem….”

I assumed that this news would be all over the liberal blogs, so I did something I have never done before. I first wrote and copied what you see above. Then I took time out to go do some Christmas shopping. When I returned, I was absolutely sure it would be easy to just go to one of the sites I usually steal from and post stupid comments from the Ecofascist nuts that hang out there. To my surprise, they had nothing! I thought for sure that the Ecofascist nuts would be all over this one and claiming that Obama had delivered us from peril once again, but not a word. Maybe it’s a Friday night and all the Ecos are out getting drunk so nobody was left to write a hailing article. Or, maybe they will get back from their drunk and then write something really mind blowing. But then…

As I was looking for ‘the’ story I came across one that is somewhat related, so I cherry picked some comments from it. You should enjoy this one equally…

Headline… Las Vegas Snow Sets Record At 3.6 Inches

That headline says it all, so lets’ jump right to the comments…

It’s so cute when someone spouts their “observable” evidence in an attempt to debunk established scientific evidence and consensus when that evidence actually supports the concept they’re trying to debunk!

So, while 3.6″ of snow in Vegas is a one-time event and could have happened in a completely stable environment, added to the list of other “unique” weather events it becomes more evidence in support of global warming.

Both of the comments above remind me of an enraged Pit Bull. Once it get’s it’s teeth clenched on your neck, it refuses to let go. At least Al Gore can claim some of the most loyal followers on earth. And the dumbest!

The next 3 comments are related. Once again you will notice the Pit Bull mentality. The first comment is from a die-hard Ecofascist trying to outwit an opposing view (will call him commenter A). The second comment is from the opposing view (will call him commenter B). The third comment is from the same Ecofascist (A) of the first comment…

(A). I’m sure you will call it bogus science of some sort but oh well-
NOAA: Global Temperature for November Fourth Warmest on Record

(B). A surreal scientific blunder last week raised a huge question mark about the temperature records that underpin the worldwide alarm over global warming. On Monday, Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), which is run by Al Gore’s chief scientific ally, Dr James Hansen, and is one of four bodies responsible for monitoring global temperatures, announced that last month was the hottest October on record.

Here’s what commenter (B) is talking about…
“This was startling. Across the world there were reports of unseasonal snow and plummeting temperatures last month, from the American Great Plains to China, and from the Alps to New Zealand. China’s official news agency reported that Tibet had suffered its “worst snowstorm ever”. In the US, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration registered 63 local snowfall records and 115 lowest-ever temperatures for the month, and ranked it as only the 70th-warmest October in 114 years.

So what explained the anomaly? GISS’s computerised temperature maps seemed to show readings across a large part of Russia had been up to 10 degrees higher than normal. But when expert readers of the two leading warming-sceptic blogs, Watts Up With That and Climate Audit, began detailed analysis of the GISS data they made an astonishing discovery. The reason for the freak figures was that scores of temperature records from Russia and elsewhere were not based on October readings at all. Figures from the previous month had simply been carried over and repeated two months running.”

Now read commenter (A’s) follow-up…

So now the “random GOP troll hack/freakazoid” on HuffPo knows more than all of he scientists at NASA!
CLASSIC! Delusional behavior at it’s finest!

What’s classic is this idiots ignorance! Damn the facts, If Al Gore says were gonna freeze to death because of Global Warming, then by God it’s the gospel truth!

To further show his ignorance, the same guy goes on to give one last shot at proving how stupid he is by writing…

Global warming does happen, so does global cooling. We affect both.

And finally, he slaps the snot out of reality with his final shot… 

The world would be better off without humans

I started this post by stating… “We Are So Screwed!” and although I meant it for Obama’s pick of John P. Holdren , it still fits when you consider the mindset of Gore’s followers (Holdren being one of them). Spread the word people, “We are so screwed!”

Chris Matthews Fires Up His Lefty Friends

19 12 2008

I found this at one of the well known liberal blogs. The issue they matthews-obamaare talking about is how Chrissy nailed Frank Gaffney to the wall on his show last night. That’s not what I’m writing about. I’m posting this just to show how mean spirited the left is, and even during a season of forgiveness, charity, and love for all mankind.

Here’s a short snip from the piece, then go on to the comments. As always, have fun!

By Danny Shea

“Chris Matthews revisited the decision to go to war with Iraq Tuesday night on “Hardball,” hosting neocon hawk Frank Gaffney and Mother Jones’ David Corn in a discussion of weapons of mass destruction and Dick Cheney’s admission that the US would have invaded Iraq even without the pretense of WMD….”

Now for the comments from the loving left…

All the White House Neo Cons should be tried as war criminals. The case is there. We just want the trial.

I say, let’s bring back public hangings…starting with the NeoCons. Or better yet the Guillotine.

The reich-wing. May they never see the light of day in this country again!

That’s it? That’s Chris Matthews’ outrage? He claims just over 4000 people are dead in that war; what does he make of the Million Iraki civilians? Are they “non-people” and should they be forgotten?

Chris’ agenda seems to be to bring the outrage back into the forefront of our national psyche and that’s good. Better than some of the others that are trying to find news in parsing Obama’s every word. Bush, Cheney and company need to be investigated and indicted.

Before the USA interfered in
the Middle East and coveted their OIL and the POTENTIAL REVENUES from that
oil…there was no such thing as TERRORISM!

The 4,000 + Americans who died did not need to for ANY REASON. What about the over a million Iraqi’s who were MURDERED??! YES MURDERED! This has NOT been a war!! It has been an illegal occupation of which the UN advised to NOT DO!
Anyone who cannot see that a death penalty is in order needs their head examined!

If we had a true working Democracy we would have war crime trials, and hang Bush, Cheney and people like Gaffney.

Saddam and Iraq were never a threat to anyone, least of all the U.S. and the neocons knew this.

Normally, I make comments in response to some of these rants, but in this case I’m not going to waste my time. Let’s start a petition to Santa Claus to scratch these turds off his gift list.
