Two years ago, poultry’s greatest oracle saw 2008’s Summer of $4.00 /gallon gasoline as the beginning of the end of this affluent society’s fetish with faux man-made global warming-moral preening. Getting to work and buying food trumped feel-good, paganistic gaia worship.

Now, twenty years after a generation was indoctrinated by Al Gore and two years into the Great Recession, comes this:

By a 55% to 32% margin, most voters continue to believe finding new sources of energy is more important than reducing the amount of energy Americans now consume. Support for finding new sources of energy has been this high or higher for months.

Complete Cockstradamus-confirming Rassmussen poll results here and previous energy and environmental prognostications here.

Too bad we have a representation without consideration regime instead of a government that reflects the wishes of We the People. I think the disconnect portends a future affirmation of a long-running Cockstradamus forecast of civil disobedience before any GOP super-majorities could reverse the ObamaDem socialism and now Mark Levin agrees.


Early last Spring when future Braves Hall-of-Famers, John Smoltz and Tom Glavine were struggling with facing up to the end of their careers, Cockstradamus predicted that both would either be Braves broadcasters or employed as coaches or in the front office by the Atlanta Braves.

Both are in the broadcast booth this year and Smoltz is arguably the most entertaining color commentator ever.

The year of the Chicken is coming

When will civil disobedience start? 2011? Not sure, but I am confident that next year will see a significant increase in the number of households that keep and raise chickens for food, thanks to the refusal of ObamaDems to allow us to bail ourselves out of this deep recession in which the under-employment rate rivals that of the bulk of the years of the Great Depression at upwards of 18% and higher.

The chicken is a very efficient recession-blunter what with the eggs, breasts, thighs, wings, alarm clock and strong male role model.

Cock-a-doodle-do, and yes, the only debate left about Tiger Woods is by how many strokes will he win this weekend’s Masters.

Cockstradamus says by 2 strokes over Lee Westwood.
