Global warming:Scientific theory Global warming religion,0,4241649.photogallery
As we witness one of the harshest winters in memory,and,we have been told by the media,some scientists,and politicians that catastrophic global warming is a forgone conclusion it seems another monkey wrench has been thrown into the gears of the global warming/climate change juggernaut.

What may you ask is this monkey wrench? Dust! That's right dust! Yes according to a site known as Daily Tech   it seems the computer models which the global warming crowd pin so many of their hopes for world destruction on are seriously flawed.

Yes it seems dust may have more of an effect on climate than carbon. Now we have all been told that carbon is going to cause runaway heating of the atmosphere and we all are going to die as the oceans rise and continents turn into deserts,or, whatever chicken little gibberish is in vogue at the minute with the climate change crowd!

In a post in a blog post from Daily Tech entitled "Dust study raises questions concerning warming models"
the author Jason Mick asserts the following...

"Some of the Earth's tiniest naturally occurring particles may have just bred a big mess for climatologists.  New findings reveal that models scientists have long used to estimate the causes and effects of global warming may be dramatically flawed due to errors in one of their most important inputs..."
Yes it seems flawed data has been used to calculate the amount of damage human beings may or may not be doing to the environment! In fact he goes on to state that what recent warming has occurred-and there is no doubt that during the eighties and nineties the earth did warm-may have had more to do with solar activity combined with dust in the atmosphere than with carbon emissions.

 "This is a critical finding because it shows that the Earth's climate may be much more sensitive to solar radiation than previous models have indicated, which in turn casts doubt on anthropogenic warming theory -- the idea that human carbon dioxide emissions bear the primary warming"
Here we are already enacting regulations,and,considering passing laws to limit "global warming" that may well cause severe damage to our economy,and,it's all based on so called science that may or may not be correct!

It seems to me that before we call on this nation's industries-as well as individuals- to radically alter the way they operate-and how we live- we would do well to take a more sober and level headed approach to the question of climate change.

Clearly "climate change" is a cyclical phenomenon. In fact we have a name for it-weather-its that simple the weather of the planet is always changing. Sometimes hot sometimes cold.

Consider this report from England....


In this article the reader learns that this is the coldest winter in England since weather record began in 1659!
Whats more the chilliest English winter was in 1683 and 84 when the Thames froze solid for two whole months.

Whats even more interesting is that the cold spell of the 1600's was preceded by a period from 1000 1500 A.D. that was known as the  Medieval warm period”. 

Dust in the wind,carbon in the atmosphere,fluctuations of solar activity all a part of climate change in other words weather!

The religion of global warming is finished!

Enough with global warming already,0,4241649.photogallery

Once again we find ourselves in the proverbial deep freeze with record cold temperatures and plenty of snow. Heck places saw a white Christmas for the first time in history,and,what is the response of the liberal whacked out media? Well of course it's global warming!

If the weather gets hot it's global warming. If the weather gets cold it's global warming. What the hay if the weather does nothing its global frickin warming!

Enough with the global warming already!! This has got to be the biggest fraud-perpetrated upon the entire world-in the history of man! What really gets me in a lather about this is that we have had former E.P.A experts say that data and information that disagrees with global warming dogma are being suppressed.

We have had "damning e-mails" proving the key scientific supporters of global warming theory distorted ,and or,falsified data about global warming,as well as,plenty of scientific evidence that seems to prove that global warming is a cyclical event rather than a man made phenomonon,and,yet we continue to be told that the current rash of terrible winter weather world wide is global warming!

Consider these quotes from the New York Times....

For a more detailed explanation, we must turn our attention to the snow in Siberia...
... As global temperatures have warmed and as Arctic sea ice has melted over the past two and a half decades, more moisture has become available to fall as snow over the continents. So the snow cover across Siberia in the fall has steadily increased...
 ...Most forecasts have failed to predict these colder winters, however, because the primary drivers in their models are the oceans, which have been warming even as winters have grown chillier. They have ignored the snow in Siberia...
... It’s all a snow job by nature. The reality is, we’re freezing not in spite of climate changebut because of it.
Here it is! We have record cold and it's because the world is getting hotter? Is it just me or does it seem as though highly educated people who should be able to apply some common sense to this subject are getting stupid?

The fact is that temperatures have not increased at all for at least 15 years. The level of the oceans has not increased,and in fact the north pole is larger now than it was in 2006!(see images below).

Note the purple line shows where the "median"line is for the north polar ice cap! the picture on top is from Dec.6,2010 the one on the bottom is from Sept.26,2006. Yet we are still being told the north pole is melting and that we have to prepare for rising oceans etc.etc.blah blah blah!

Is it so hard to make a simple observation from life that all things run in cycles! Night turns to day,winter to spring,youth into age,life into death,high tide low tide,and on,and,on,and on.

To make my point check out this article about Greenland a place that is not now green at all but white.
I call it "When Greenland wa green". It comes from and documents how the Vikings once settled there and were able to grow abundant crops,but,in time it became to cold to grow their crops and eventually they left. Here is a quote from that article...

The next migration came from the east, following "Erik the Red" Thorwaldsson's exploration of the southern coast of Greenland between 982 and 985 AD. In 986, he led a group of Viking families from Iceland, and settled at Brattahlid, traditionally known as Qassiarsuk (route map). The climate at this time was very warm, much wamer than it is today, and crops were able to do well. It seems likely that the name "Greenland" was given to the country, not just as wishful thinkful, but because it was a climatic fact at that time
It's all about cycles ,and,it's high time that the common sense majority of people push back against the senseless minority that is trying to push their global warming religion down our throat and say "Enough with global warming already!!!

My horrible experiance at Facebook

As the picture at the left would imply I don't care for being walked on, abused,or taken advantage of. It also is a symbol of danger to those who would "tread on me"!
Yet that-it seems-is what has happened to me. I have been trad upon by some unknown scumbag who -it seems-has taken over my facebook account.

This situation has gotten me so pi--ed that I can't stand it!! I am currently in the process of trying to get this thing turned around,but, I have also learned a few things.

  1. We are all becoming way to dependent upon this new social medium called :facebook"!
  2. I have always tried to keep personal info at fb to a minimum,but,I see a lot of very smart people putting a lot of stuff out there. Be careful!
  3. Face book makes it kind of hard to get back control of your account-although my own ignorance of the process has made things worse-educate yourself about the process before it happens!!!
  4. Scum who hack into other peoples online stuff should be treated as terrorists!! The authorities should start looking at this sort of stuff accordingly.
As to the last thing on that list Julian Assange is no damn hero the bastard is a terrorist scum and deserves to be shot!! That's about how I feel toward the ass---e who has f'd up my facebook

Well just getting that off my chest helps. To any of my friends from facebook who may be wondering where I have gone I hope to be back soon!

Back to the symbol of danger to those who would tread on others. I doubt I will ever know who compromised my facebook,but,if I ever do heaven help me if  I could beat the individual with a truncheon I would!!

A new gang of four set to help Dems pass DADT in the Senate

As the senate looks to-possibly-vote on a repeal of Don't ask don't tell it seems a new "Gang of Four" Republicans are poised to side with Senate Democrats and vote for a repeal of DADT!

Notable among them is Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts the one time golden boy of the tea partier and hero to conservatives everywhere for claiming the "Kennedy chair" for the American people!
Here is Scott Brown in his own words...
“I pledged to keep an open mind about the present policy on Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Having reviewed the Pentagon report, having spoken to active and retired military service members, and having discussed the matter privately with Defense Secretary Gates and others, I accept the findings of the report and support repeal based on the Secretary’s recommendations that repeal will be implemented only when the battle effectiveness of the forces is assured and proper preparations have been completed.”
 Another of this new gang is Rhino-Republican Olympia Snowe- according to Politico -Snowe's spokesman John Gentzel has said that the Senator from Maine will vote for repeal after the Omnibus spending bill is resolved. Well with that out of the way for now it looks like the Dems will move forward on seeking to repeal DADT so one would guess Ms. Snowe will get her chance to vote for repeal.

Along with Brown and Snowe,it also appears as though,Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins are prepared to jump ship and go along with Harry Reid in passing this pet project of the Democratic party.

It is my opinion that what people do in their own private time is their own business. However I don't like the idea of social engineering our military. Every one seems to have an opinion on homosexuals serving in the military,but,it seems that the opinion of the single most important group in this debate-those serving in combat brigades-is being ignored. Here is what the Commandant of the Marine Corps had to say about repealing DADT...
"When your life hangs on the line," said Gen. James F. Amos, the commandant of the Marine Corps, "you don't want anything distracting. . . . Mistakes and inattention or distractions cost Marines' lives."
or consider this quote from a recent DOD report on DADT...
"Nearly 60% of respondents in the Marine Corps
and in Army combat arms said they believed there would be a negative impact on their unit’s
effectiveness in this context; among Marine combat arms the number was 67%."
this quote was found in section 6 page 74 of the report under the heading  Army, Marine Corps, and Combat Arms.

Bottom line here is that homosexuals already are serving in the military,but,if the guys who are doing the fighting don't like it I think it behooves us to respect their opinion and reject this repeal!!

6,488 Earmarks!

The Drudge report in a post titled "The Last Feast" is reporting that the new "Omnibus spending bill" currently before Congress holds an astonishing 6,488 earmarks!!!

Yes you read that right-6,488 earmarks-what the hay is going on here? Did the morons on Capitol Hill not get the message over the past year that- We the People- are sick and tired of these bills laden with pork?

According to this report the Omnibus appropriations bill allows for ...

  • $277,000 for potato pest management in Wisconsin 
  • 522,000 for cranberry and blueberry disease and breeding in New Jersey
  • $208,000 beaver management in North Carolina
  • $165,000 for maple syrup research in Vermont
  • $100,000 for the Edgar Allen Poe Cottage Visitor’s Center in New York 
  • $300,000 for the Polynesian Voyaging Society in Hawaii 
  • $400,000 for solar parking canopies and plug-in electric stations in Kansas
  and that is just a partial list.

All these things on this list may be projects that have merit,but,not at tax payer expense! Seems to me that potatoe pest management can be financed by pesticide companies and the potato industry.

Maple syrup[ research belongs to those who have an interest in maple syrup not the tax payers. As for the "Polynesian Voyagers Society" they should be getting their support either from memberships, donors, or private fund raisers not the American people at the point of the I.R.S. gun!!

Obviously the clowns on the Hill haven't got the message. I'm calling on any and all who read this post to e-mail their Senators and Representatives and demand that this nonsense be stopped now.

I'm beginning to think that maybe the only thing that will get their attention is a mob of angry taxpayers with torches and pitchforks storming the Capitol like a scene of the villagers going after Frankenstein's castle in the old movies.
One Senator who seems to be getting wise is John McCain he had this to say about this outrage against the citizens of this country...

“One thing is abundantly clear to me – that the majority has not learned the lessons of last month’s election. The American people could not have been more clear. They are tired of wasteful spending. They are tired of big government. They are tired of sweetheart deals for special interests. They are tired of business as usual in Washington. And they are tired of massive bills – just like this one - put together behind closed doors, and rammed through the Congress at the last moment so that no one has the opportunity to read them and no one really knows what kind of waste is in them."
Yes we are!!  The people are sick and tired of 2,000 page bills,stuffed with pork,laden with lard, and squealing like suckling pigs!!  They are tired of politicians passing bills so they can "find out whats in them" rather than reading,as well as, debating them before they are passed.

We the People need to keep this in mind, remember that this is the parting gift the Democrats are trying to force on this nation, and throw even more of their liberal,socialistic,a##'s out the next time we have a chance!!!

Vote for Democracy: A new kind of public opinion poll

I stumbled upon this site purely by accident,but,from what I can tell it is so new it hasn't even been indexed by Google yet!

The name of the site is "Vote for Democracy". The stated purpose of the site is...
",Vote for Democracy is an online resource for the public to register their opinions on issues of the day and the political strength of the politicans we expect to carry out those policies"
When I first visited Vote for Democracy the user was required to "register" to vote,but as of this writing,the requirement to register had been waived in order to "increase user participation".

There was also a much longer "about us" section that told that the creator of the site had voted for Obama but was disillusioned with Obama's performance so far. However the author stated that he desired an open bi-partisan participation,and, promised that all polling would be fair. There was also a requirement to declare as either a Democrat or Republican, with, the stipulation that the voter could only switch parties periodically.

Tonight-Dec 14,2010, -I revisited the site and found that-as I have already mentioned-that t the registration requirement was gone,however, when I punched the vote button I still had to pick Democrat or Republican Ballot. I am very intrigued by this site.

It is apparently an attempt at a new kind of public opinion polling. Polling that bypasses the established pollsters,the media, and special interest groups,and instead, goes directly to the American people!

It is the opinion of this blogger that if this new experiment in opinion polling takes off that it may well become an invaluable asset to bloggers,as well as, main stream media types. I would encourage anyone who is conservative-or even liberal for that matter- to be sure and check out  Vote for Democracy and let your opinion be counted.

Oh by the way as of this writing the "Polls are open"!

Democrats should follow J.F.K.'s lead on taxes

The democrats in Congress would do well to study a little of their own history as it regards tax cuts and spend a little time watching this clip.Today we find ourselves in the midst of the worst recession since the great depression. Unemployment is the highest it's been in more than twenty years,and,yet there are those in Congress who would like to raise taxes and add further injury to the economy!

They fail to understand that government does not create anything-other than onerous laws and regulations-it only consumes. The true job creators are...

  • Consumers who spend hard earned dollars on goods and services.
  • Those with capital who create jobs by financing new,and ,existing economic ventures.
When the government takes money away from these two groups there is less money available to be spent by both consumers and capitalists on true economic stimulus!

Contrary to his Democrat progeny J.F.K understood that if you want to grow the economy you have to cut taxes on everybody. The Kennedy tax cuts lead this nation into unparalleled prosperity through most of the 1960's Alas our politicians once again lost their way in the late sixties and into the seventies and thought the way to grow the economy was to tax and spend.

Unfortunately they failed to realise that the "people" and not the government are the true engine of economic growth. Fortunately for America  the "people"- in their wisdom- elected another man that knew the best way to rev up the economy was to lower taxes on both working people-as well as-entrepreneurs-his name was Ronald Reagan.

Today it was announced that President Obama and Republicans on the Hill had reached a compromise on extending the Bush cuts. Yet the Democrats  were said to be angered at this turn of events and could well try to throw a monkey wrench into the whole thing.

If they decide to try and let the whole thing roll over into next year it may well be one of the dumbest things they have done in some time. This country needs to demand real tax reform now,the Democrats would be much better served if they would take a look at this slice of history and learn from it,and America would be better positioned to start recovering from the disaster it has been in for far too long now.

Mitch McConnell,Senate Republicans, put brakes on Reid's socialist agenda

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell-joined by all 42 members of Congress-have effectively put the brakes on Harry Reid's agenda to pass amnesty for illegal immigrants,pass the new START treaty with Russia,not to mention the mad dash to repeal "Don't ask Don't tell".

He rightfully points out that the people want real action on extending the Bush era tax cuts-as well as-doing something to create an economic atmosphere in the country conducive to job creation. Now- most certainly- is not the time to raise taxes,and, that is exactly what a any kind of repeal of the Bush tax cuts would do.

Especially egregious is the idea of raising taxes for individuals or corporations making over $250,000 per year. This would be extremely harmful to-what everyone agrees is the engine of the economy-small business.

There are scores of businesses in this nation that are considered "small" that make well in excess $250,000 raising taxes on these companies at best might lead them to maintain the status quo,at worst it could drive them out of business!

As for the Democrats constant desire to tax wealthier Americans to death. Poor people do not create jobs,invest in factories or sign paychecks,rich people do! As talk radio host Sean Hannity is famous for saying... I've never had my paycheck signed by a poor person".

The best thing the Democrats could do-in this session- is renew the Bush Tax cuts,at least for the next three years,do what it takes to keep the government running, and look for every opportunity to get the government's hands out of "We the People's" pockets, and the government's nose out of our business!!

Still Here...

This time of the year is very hard. I do reasonably well through ten out of every twelve months; with the exception of a mild pity party here and there, I tend to be fairly irrepressible. Can't keep a good woman down, you know. Staying busy - mentally more than physically, of course - helps a great deal.

The political climate of the past few years hasn't helped much. It's created a mild, constantly thrumming anxiety I can sometimes feel in my bones…a sense of impending doom often heightened to a nearly obsessive wail by the helplessness I personally feel when dealing with the physical challenges I face daily, challenges to which I had to adapt at what will probably prove to be the midpoint of my life. I've never considered myself anything other than utterly intractable, obdurate, stubborn beyond all reason. As long as I can remember, I've been the kind of person that, once my mind is made up, digs in. This characteristic has gotten me in nearly as much trouble as it has ever helped me, and I always wished I could be just a bit more flexible.

As the adage goes: Be careful what you wish for…

One of my very favorite pieces of Scripture is Philippians 4:13. "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me." (AKJV) What I lack, He provides. When my mind, heart and spirit become so mired in black that I can't move, can't breathe…I pray. He has never failed to answer my call - even when His answer wasn't the one I sought.

This year, everything is almost better, for the first time in seven years. The anniversary of my accident is two weeks away now, and I can feel that black despair waiting to seize me up again. As I pray, I'm overcome with a conviction that He has something very specific for me to do, and I understand quite well that the hardscrabble changes wrought in my mind and body will help me to do it, even if I don't understand why or how. But everything, by the same token, is also almost worse.

High school athletes punished for expressing belief in God and thanks for His abundance. Atheists urging people of faith to "celebrate reason" during the holiday season. A government agency violating the civil liberties of millions of Americans because political correctness prevents them from following safety protocols proven to actually work. Politicians refusing to listen to their constituents, deliberately misconstruing recent midterm elections to justify pushing ahead with a progressive agenda the people DO NOT want. A wannabe terrorist INDEPENDENTLY deciding to murder innocents - including CHILDREN - and being defended by liberal twitbots who claim the federal agents responsible for preventing such a heinous act are actually responsible for entrapping the "beautiful young man" and creating the free society SO VERY TERRIBLE it has spawned a counterculture of misguided youths who feel they simply must strike it down in the name of islam. Yeah, that makes no sense to me, either; but amazingly enough, it's true.

We'll never get through to these people. Anyone who can believe something like that last needs real divine intervention, an authentic "come to Jesus" moment that I don't know how to provide. It's all I can do right now to crawl out from under the covers each day.

So for now, that will be my prayer. I'll try not to be so quiet in the coming days - I promise - and I'll pray that the truly misguided see the light.

Much love, my friends...
