Greentech hurts poor people, pollutes land.
Business as usual, in other words. Remember, it doesn’t count if it’s not impacting the First World: Some of the greenest technologies of the age, from electric cars to efficient light bulbs to very large wind turbines, are made possible by an unusual group of elements called rare earths. The world’s dependence on these substances is rising fast. Just one problem: These elements come almost | Read More »
Amateur Barack Obama’s Speechifying Causes an International Incident
While Americans are fixated on the weekend blizzard and the health care debate, the rest of the world is fixated on the disastrous “climate change” talks in Copenhagen.More importantly, though world leaders could not agree on much of anything significant, they could all agree on one thing: Barack Obama screwed up a delicate situation and unintentionally sunk the deal.For a man who is supposed to | Read More »
The Chinese Have Voted No on ObamaCare
Now that Senator Reid apparently has the 60 votes he needs for cloture, and it looks certain that the “health care reform” (sic) Bill will pass the Senate, there is an interesting development that is passing almost unnoticed. And it may make the passage of the Bill completely moot in the long-run. The Chinese government yesterday made what may be the most definitive and important | Read More »
Pictures of the Week
The White House and the Speaker both have flickr pages. And they are the gifts that keep on giving.First, we have the leader of the free world supplicating himself to the leader of world oppressors. Is he begging for more time to pay off his/our debt? Then we have Tiger and the Cougar or, as Moe said, a photo entitled “Tiger Would”. Consider this an | Read More »
How Cap and Trade Plans to Cripple Our Economy
If you can’t understand conceptually why a Cap and Trade system is such a bad deal, how about a concrete example? The European Union is a signatory of the Kyoto Protocols and have been dealing with a Carbon Cap and Trade system for several years. This article in today’s Wall Street Journal shows how the potential profit from the sale of carbon credits directly led | Read More »
Let’s see what we find at random stops around the interweb thingy……..
For starters, here’s what I hinted at earlier today as part of a comment you probably didn’t see…… The Parliament Of World Religions. Melbourne Australia played host to this lovely little gathering of individuals and organizations. www.parliamentofreligions.org ————— If you didn’t know already, this organization is home base for the “Coexist” people. =============== The Congressional Muslim Staffers Association. www.congressionalmuslims.org The Congressional Muslim Staffers Association(CMSA) is | Read More »

America’s Great Leap Forward
Those who ignore the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them. When Barack Obama was campaigning for president in 2007, his backers frequently compared him to former president John F. Kennedy. After a year in office, however, President Obama’s words and actions align more closely with China’s despotic Chairman Mao than with JFK’s. When Mao Tse Tung conquered China in 1949, his secret goal | Read More »
Obama Bows to Chinese Premier AND President – UPDATED: Where Will President Obama Bow Next? And Why?
UPDATED: President Obama met China’s Premier, Wen Jiabao, on the Asian Apology Tour. As I predicted, President Obama bowed again, this time in a country in which bowing is considered an outdated custom indicative of a servile position at odds with the “social equality” that is part of the Communist philosophy. At a “Town Hall” style meeting the Chinese government set up for him in | Read More »
Diary of a Mad, “teabagger” woman
Listening to Obama’s “almost live” speech today on the economy and jobs, I feel compelled to pound out my thoughts and feelings on the keyboard instead of my bedroom wall. President Obama is so hell bent on pushing through his agenda that any credibility he may have had (at least with me) is completely shot. At the risk of sounding like a “crazy person” or | Read More »
So….nice guys DO finish last.
Terrific article today from Der Spiegel, (that’s German for you leftist twits out there), explaining from one German’s point of view how Obama’s ass-kiss diplomacy is failing. Giving away the ending, the article quotes Newt by saying that Obama’s approach is “a lot like Jimmy Carter“. Barack Obama looked tired on Thursday, as he stood in the Blue House in Seoul, the official residence of | Read More »

Global Military Dominance?
Who needs that? Surely not us. One connection that’s not talked about often enough is that between economic superiority and military superiority. They obviously go hand in hand. Your two most prominent examples being how we marshaled our resources in the 40′s to defeat the Socialist Nazis and how we did so again in the 80′s to defeat the Communist Soviets. One involved bloodshed and | Read More »
Pandering to the Panda
Pandering to the Panda It is almost imaginable that a sitting U.S. President could “Give it up” to the leaders of China in any era of human history. I say ‘almost’ becuse as we have seen, this sitting U.S. President has no qualms about handing over our fidelity to any nation to which he visits. The amazing element of his visit (so far) to East | 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 »
And Obama Bows Again and Again to Hu
From Gateway tonight Do I really have to add commentary? Ok, I will. Obama is so used to being subserviant and told what to do–like a child–by Rham, David Axelrod, Andy Stern, and others that he never steps out of that role. He bows in submission, like a child would to with an adult. Does this man realize he’s the President of the United States? | 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 »
