The Cold, Hard Facts
Emails! Junk Science! Global Warming! Deniers! Warmists! Global Cooling! The Sky is Falling! We have all been told that Antarctica is warming at a tremendous rate. Well, one source of the “AGW” scam is the GHCN, the Global Historical Climate Network. And they measured the temperatures in the Antarctic for the last seventeen years at this place, Rothera Station. THIS ONE PLACE. FOR THE ENTIRE | Read More »
Sec. Gates: “We Are In It To Win”……………….not so much
The total incompetence is heart breaking. The lies and misrepresentations to the American people are outrageous. The press should be hounded for its failure to cover the dishonesty inherent in this administration. I can no longer recommend to young men and women that they join the military under this President. He will send them into harm’s way while lying about their mission and using them | Read More »
Text of Obama’s Speech – No mention of Victory
Good evening. To the United States Corps of Cadets, to the men and women of our armed services, and to my fellow Americans: I want to speak to you tonight about our effort in Afghanistan – the nature of our commitment there, the scope of our interests, and the strategy that my Administration will pursue to bring this war to a successful conclusion. It is | Read More »
Why KSM is getting a show trial?
Remember, everything is about Obama’s legacy. Nothing else. After all the legal wrangling, Obama may very well be out of office by the time any civilian trial is concluded. Holder did not tell Sen. Graham that KSM would be re-imprisoned. He said that Congress would not allow KSM to "be released in THIS country." Obama could be accused of biasing any jury pool with his | Read More »
Obama lies to the Chinese and Americans. Again.
President Obama is clueless. "Too much debt could fuel double-dip recession" Ya think? Of course, remember his audience….his bankers in China. BEIJING, Nov 18 (Reuters) President Barack Obama gave his sternest warning yet about the need to contain rising U.S. deficits, saying on Wednesday that if government debt were to pile up too much, it could lead to a double-dip recession. With the U.S. unemployment | Read More »
Apparently they all look alike to the “Smartest President Evah”. I mean, if our President is going to break 200 years of tradition and bow to a foreign leader….. if our President is going to embarrass our country….. if our President is going to show slavish subservience….. Then, at least get it right. This is the man that deserve Obama’s, if not America’s bow….. I | Read More »
The Wall – Never Forget
Tyranny cannot tolerate opposition or escape. The Iron Curtain was the symbol of Soviet oppression of Eastern Europe. Children and young adults today cannot comprehend what it was like to live in such a world. Even the countries involved were labeled. Today no one speaks of Eastern Europe. Rather the world now speaks of Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, etc. No longer are these | Read More »
When I take a break from blogging, I’m a real estate title abstractor. I’m….in-between…. employers at the moment. Why? Nope. Not because of the foreclosures. If every house on the market that should be foreclosed was being sold, I would have a job. My industry depends upon the transaction, the sale, of homes. And responsible banks and buyers get titles checked before they buy. And | Read More »
Carbon Taxes? Aren’t YOU a carbon based life form?
As Robert Heinlein put is so succintly, TANSTAAFL. Why Drill Here, Drill Now is not just a political slogan but necessary for the continuation of civilization as we know it and carbon taxes are the ruination of us all. Mostly Cajun explains the real world of energy and why expecting to replace "fossil fuels" anytime soon is as naive as expecting Obama to be honest | Read More »
Obama Administration believes Russia
when they say that, "Of course we’ll help you with that Iranian problem…..We’ll get them to put away the nukes. We’ve only invested millions in helping them develop nuclear power….Don’t worry about it. The check is in the mail. And we have a bridge to sell you. I promise not to c…" You get the idea. So…..Obama has betrayed two allies, Poland and the Czech | Read More »
Reactions to Obama Flipping Us The Finger
Since there are just too many better writers out there, and many of you are working too hard to take the time to find them, here’s a round up of reactions to ObamaCare. Roger Kimball at Roger’s Rules talks about Obama as Tony Soprano. He introduces Thomas Sowell’s piece on Obama vs. Common Sense. But he absolutely loves Shikia Dalmia’s PutUp or Shut Up. Obama | Read More »
I’m sorry. Your operation is on hold. Your DNC dues haven’t been paid.
The Left always attacks its critics. Always. From the Clinton machine to Obama’s minions, the left has attacked every critic. Pelosi calls concerned citizens, many of them democrats, nazis. The administration tells its people to “punch back twice as hard.” This is against private, albeit loosely organized, citizens. Joe the Plumber was investigated and his private information used against him. The press pilloried him for | Read More »
ERISA – Do you know what it means?
Neither did I. And the powers that be don’t want you to know either. Have you seen how these “health care” bills are written? Or the existing regulations? During the Middle Ages, the Catholic Church was in charge. All power was based on God’s approval. And only the priesthood could read Latin…. Similarly, the mullahs do the same thing in the muslim world. The Koran | Read More »
Its not about Health Care. Its about Power.
What is it that the Left promises? Yes, I know, but free energy from unicorn farts IS mythical. Well, then again, so is most of what the Left says is mythical…..but I digress. The Progressives promise more efficient government services. The Progressives promise that the government will help you. The Progressives promise that THEY will save you through the power of this or that government | Read More »
I’m with the government, I’m here to tax, um…..help you.
Some busybodies cannot leave well enough alone. Congress is addicted to our money. Congressmen are addicted to “fixing” what is not broken. Many want to force us into certain social pathway because they think its important. Now, Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D) Oregon, wants to spend our money so that the government can spy on us. He wants to spend millions of dollars developing a system | Read More »
Forget Healthcare…Watch those town halls when the light bulb ban takes effect…
We have until 2012 until we follow where the European Union is leading. Our fearless leaders, in order to make themselves feel better about themselves passed a bill that banned incandescent light bulbs from American shores. The federal government believes that they have the right to interfere in our lives to that extent…. Well, here’s what’s happening in Europe: On September 1, the European Union | Read More »
And this is why we need to actually, you know, REFORM Medicare….
Obama wants to “fix” our ENTIRE system. Yet, he won’t touch Medicare, unless its to gut it of money to pay for HIS plan. He wants to hand over hour health system to the same idiots that do piecemeal planning like this in order to “save money”. They want to overhaul the private system but won’t fix what THEY broke…. h/t MSNBC Although the government | Read More »
Government Knows Best
How many examples like this do you need to convince you that socialized medicine does not work? A MUM suffering chest pains died in front of her young son hours after being sent home from hospital and told to take painkillers. Debra Beavers, 39, phoned NHS 24 twice in two days before getting a hospital appointment. But a doctor gave what her family described as | Read More »
