Global warming book withdrawn

Quoting the Omaha World Herald:
“Millard Public Schools will stop using a children's book about global warming -- but only until the district can obtain copies with a factual error corrected.

A review committee, convened after parents complained, concluded that author Laurie David's book, ‘The Down-to-Earth Guide to Global Warming,’ contained ‘a major factual error’ in a graphic about rising temperatures and carbon dioxide levels.”

The committee also decided to stop using a propaganda video narrated by actor and global warming activist Leonardo DiCaprio.

Neither DiCaprio nor two authors of the book have ANY academic background in science. And yet, until these parents complained about factual inaccuracies, their children were being politically indoctrinated with bald faced LIES from utterly unqualified and purely propagandizing sources.

This review describes the central lie in the book. Click here for my post containing directly cited peer reviewed science substantiating the FACT that -- during previous interglacial warming cycles -- the warming ALWAYS occurred BEFORE the CO2 levels rose. On average, the elevated CO2 levels lagged behind the warming by 800 years (as warmer oceans released dissolved CO2).

Once this factual error is (partially) corrected, we will still be left with purely one sided propaganda provided by political activists who have NO ACADEMIC BACKGROUND IN ANY BRANCH OF SCIENCE!

Parents beware! Today’s schools are nothing more than political indoctrination camps! HOME SCHOOL YOUR KIDS!

Sustainability = Stagnation

Our local Socialist pinheads are at it again -- promoting the “sustainability” fraud.

Fraud? Yep, 100% fraud -- at least under any market based system.

Proof? That’s simple -- name ONE natural resource which the world has EVER run out of. There are none. And, only a centrally planned economy could ever deliver one. Under a market based economy, the natural law of supply and demand ensures that the world NEVER runs out of ANY natural resource. Rather, as the resource becomes scarcer, the price goes higher. Demand then drops, the price drops and the cycle repeats. But, the general trend is for GRADUALLY increasing prices and GRADUALLY decreasing demand. This creates incentives to find alternatives. And, higher priced alternatives become NATURALLY competitive and GRADUALLY take hold as the preferred commodity. Or, ideally, lower priced alternatives are found through the fountainhead of innovation. If you want an example, study the hysteria surrounding predictions that the world would run out of whale oil -- never happened!

I need to update my Peak Oil post to eliminate my “world of hurt” phrase and replace it with the GRADUAL concept described above.

Back to the sustainability fraud…
The sustainability fraud promotes stagnation and the death of innovation. It presumes that we will forever remain dependent upon the resources we current use and never make use of other resources in more innovative and/or less expensive ways. Again, that only even begins to make sense in a centrally planned economy where all innovation has been crushed under the jack boot of a Socialist totalitarian regime -- exactly where we are heading.

So, once the Socialists more fully impose their utopian fantasy and more fully crush innovation, we will -- indeed -- be forced (at gunpoint) to embrace the sustainability fraud in order to survive. But, as noted in the opening paragraph, the irony is that this utopian nightmare is the ONLY circumstance under which we could ever actually run out of any natural resource.

The Socialists tell us that they are actually providing -- through government subsidies -- the spark which will ignite the innovation that delivers the next generation of energy sources. BALDERDASH! Direct government subsidies (of any sort) do NOTHING but subsidize failure and stagnation! Wind and solar power would be MUCH farther along in finding their natural niche in our power grid if government had NOT subsidized them! The subsidies eliminate ALL incentive to improve the product and find the natural niche!

Ethanol never had a natural niche and never will. It was 100% pure government fraud and corruption (and still is). And, the same eco-nuts behind the sustainability fraud are the very nuts who -- as documented in a previous post -- reacted in an utterly irrational way to Three Mile Island and ensured we would not develop any new nuclear power plants for DECADES.

As I noted in a previous post, the global warming hysteria fraud is very similar to the stagnated mindset of the pinheads who promote the sustainability fraud. And, as we can see in the editorial which prompted this post; the two frauds are very deeply intertwingled. The stagnation promoted by the climate change alarmists is the fantasy that current climate conditions are ideal and any change -- natural or otherwise -- is inherently catastrophic. The entire fraud is based upon the notion that we must -- at ANY COST and no matter how insane the cost to “benefit” ratio -- find a way (which does not exist and never will exist) to stagnate the climate and perpetuate the current conditions forever. That, my friends, is typical of a stagnated mindset which is scared to death of ANYTHING which represents change of any sort.

The ONE aspect of our current condition which is truly “unsustainable” is deficit spending to fund entitlement fantasies. But, reigning in these truly unsustainable deficits is -- naturally -- anathema to the Socialists who ignorantly promote their alternative sustainability fraud.

Comprehensive Financial Reform - a Big, Fat LIE!

Quoting Doug Ross @ Journal:
“All of the reforms forced down the throats of the American people by Democrats in Congress are helpfully termed ‘comprehensive’. Consider the terminology, casually tossed about while ignoring the fundamental failure of every, large-scale federal program in history: ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform’... ‘Comprehensive Health Care Reform"... ‘Comprehensive Financial Reform’...

Of the latter, 2,000-plus pages are devoted to revamping the entire financial ‘sector’. The result is an orgy of central planning, authoritarian controls, and Democrat skulduggery that Nikita Krushchev would love --- and James Madison would despise.

As for the effectiveness of the reforms: the Democrats have completely ignored Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the GSEs), which were the lynch-pins of the 2008 economic meltdown. The reasons are many:”

Obama's Epic Failure - Public vs. Private Jobs Edition

Quoting Veronique de Rugy:
“Since the beginning of the recession (roughly January 2008), some 7.9 million jobs were lost in the private sector while 590,000 jobs were gained in the public one. And since the passage of the stimulus bill (February 2009), over 2.6 million private jobs were lost, but the government workforce grew by 400,000.

I will leave it up to you to draw conclusions.”

If Obama’s goal was to grow government jobs at the expense of private sector jobs, then he has achieved his goal.

Of course, one need only examine where Obama’s so-called “Stimulus” money went to see that Obama CLEARLY intended to grow government jobs at the expense of private sector jobs.

In the previous link (funded by so-called “Progressives”), note that what they dishonestly describe as “tax cuts” are -- per USA Today -- actually tax credits (handed out to those “who do not earn enough money to owe income taxes”).

Conservatives 42, Liberals 20

Quoting Gallup:
“Conservatives have maintained their leading position among U.S. ideological groups in the first half of 2010. Gallup finds 42% of Americans describing themselves as either very conservative or conservative. This is up slightly from the 40% seen for all of 2009 and contrasts with the 20% calling themselves liberal or very liberal.”

Hey! Dims! Brace yourselves!

Obama's Epic Failure - GDP Edition

Quoting Politics Daily:
“Taking a closer look, the government said Friday that economic growth during the first quarter of 2010 wasn't as strong as analysts first thought, as spending by consumers was lower than earlier estimates.

The Commerce Department pushed down the previously reported 3 percent growth in the gross domestic product to 2.7 percent, a disappointment when compared to the 5.6 percent increase in GDP during the last quarter of 2009…

After the downturn in the early 1980s -- at the beginning of the Reagan years -- the economy grew at rates of 7 percent to 9 percent for five quarters in a row.”

The Al Gore Sex Scandal

A few posts back, we had a few laughs at Al Gore’s expense with some satirical speculation as to what caused the pending dissolution of his marriage.

Now, we get what could be the real life (and not at all funny) reason for the split.


Of course, in the alternative universe inhabited by Leftists, there can be no doubt -- Bush is to blame.

Gore deserves his day in court. But, when he refuses (thus far) to even deny the allegations, it does not look good.

Did Gore take his perversely egocentric messiah complex a step too far? We’ll see.

Petraeus Replaces McChrystal

I did not see this one coming.

If McChrystal had to go, Obama was fortunate in that Petraeus was willing to take the job.

Now, let’s see if Obama will actually LISTEN to Petraeus and give him what he needs. THAT, I would not count on.

Obama v. McChrystal

Updated at 3:28PM MDT

Quoting The Washington Post:
“Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal's civilian press aide resigned Tuesday over an upcoming magazine story that portrayed the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan and some of his aides as derisive toward Obama administration officials.”
Derisive? Ya’ THINK?

Advisory: This was written by a FAR Left pinhead.

Lookit! Obama’s inner circle is abandoning him like rats off of a sinking ship. Peter Orzaq is definitely leaving. Rahm Emanuel is likely to be next. Is this a good time for the most petty, most petulant and most vindictive President EVER to pick a fight with the man he hand picked to run the war in Afghanistan? I think not -- unless Barry, to paraphrase his own idiotic words, wants to get his ass kicked (again)!

Among Barry’s many infamies, does he REALLY want to go down in history as the ONLY President EVER to relieve TWO top generals from duty during wartime (in just over ONE YEAR)?

Suck it up, Barry! Let it go! You had it coming!

We're all working for the government now

Quoting The New York Times
(emphasis mine):
“‘We’re all working for the government now,’ said Mr. Bridwell…

For all the focus on the historic federal rescue of the banking industry, it is the government’s decision to seize Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in September 2008 that is likely to cost taxpayers the most money. So far the tab stands at $145.9 billion, and it grows with every foreclosure of a three-bedroom home with a two-car garage one hour from Phoenix. The Congressional Budget Office predicts that the final bill could reach $389 billion.”
Click the image & read the rest:
Click the image & read the rest

Okay, NYT…
If we’re all working for the government now, can we call it Socialism yet?

Throughout this crisis, The Lame Stream Media (and all other Dims) have been singularly focused on the $170 billion AIG bailout. But, as I have been saying all along and as even the NYT now FINALLY ADMITS, Fannie and Freddie are -- by FAR -- the biggest problem.

Moronic Dim politicians treating home ownership as an entitlement were the singular root cause of the entire collapse. And, even the NYT documents that Bill Clinton bears more responsibility for that collapse than anyone.

Okay, all you moronic Dims…
How do you like your Socialist Housing Utopia?
Hang, on tight! ObamaCare will make your housing utopia look like a walk in the park!


Wind Farms Paid NOT to Produce Electricity

First, the lunatic Left subsidizes the development of pie in the sky wind farms. THEN, once they finally realize how utterly inappropriate wind farms are for producing electricity, the same lunatic Left pays the wind farms NOT to produce electricity!

Oh, my…
Isn’t the Socialist Utopia grand? Don’t you just love it when government bureaucrats intervene in private markets to select (through unmitigated cronyism and brazen corruption) the technological winners and losers?

I wonder…
Would we all be better off letting market forces determine winners, losers and market niches? DUH!

Punishing the entire industry for the willful incompetence of BP is stupid, ignorant and counterproductive. It is also typical of power crazed political pinheads who want to nationalize the entire energy sector (and the rest of the economy).

The data demonstrate that -- unlike BP -- the industry has a very good safety record (far, far, FAR better than Mother Nature).

As I previously documented, an utterly irrational response to Three Mile Island severely damaged our capacity to produce electricity from nuclear power. It is absolutely critical that we prevent the power crazed political pinheads from doing even MORE damage to our capacity to develop our enormous hydrocarbon resources.

A Contest to Count The Lies

How many lies can you count in this one document from Obama?

That document was sent in support of even more so-called “stimulus” spending.

I’ll start the contest by offering quantitative proof that the second sentence is a bald faced lie.

Of course, if Obama and his Dims continue to insist upon ever more aggressively pursuing the policies which produced their epic failure, they just might turn that falsehood into fact.

By the way, casting his epic failure as success is a second lie -- there are MANY MORE!

The utterly counterproductive deficit spending of the Dims is already mind boggling. But -- if Obama has his way -- they will make it even worse, continue to ruin our economy and rob us all of our futures.

==>7/8/10 UPDATE: YouTube has restored the unlawfully censored video clip linked to below!<==

I would like to have embedded the YouTube version. But the cowards at YouTube removed their version after caving in to an utterly bogus copyright claim from Warner/Chappell Music, Inc. There is -- absolutely, positively -- no question that this parody is covered under the Fair Use Doctrine. Hence, there is clearly no basis for a copyright claim.

By the way, these terrorists received propaganda assistance from Reuters (and, in other ways, virtually every so-called “journalist” in the Lame Stream Media).

Joran van der Sloot Confesses to Murder

Quoting CNN
(I inserted the link):
“Joran van der Sloot, the longtime suspect in the disappearance of an Alabama teenager in Aruba, is slated to take Peruvian authorities on a re-enactment Tuesday at the hotel room where the body of a young woman he has confessed to killing was found last week, officials said.”

Van der Sloot is also charged with attempting to extort the mother of Natalee Holloway out of $250,000 in exchange for finally telling her how Natallee died and where her remains could be found.

In American prisons, men who commit violent crimes against women and children tend to have a very rough go of it. I am hoping that -- in a Latin American country like Peru -- inmates will have even less tolerance for a cowardly punk like Joran.

An Eco-Terrorist Lands in Jail

I confess. I enjoy watching “Whale Wars”.

I watch for two reasons -- the sheer adventure of life on the Southern Ocean and the sheer amusement of watching the astonishing incompetence of the eco-terrorist ninnies prancing about under the “leadership” of the infamous eco-terrorist Paul Watson (who is too extreme for even Greenpeace to tolerate).

I love it when the nut jobs get their due. This season, the morons sank their new toy and landed one of their new eco-terrorist cult members in a Japanese jail.

Ah, the sweet smell of justice served! :-)

P.S.) Can you imagine how bonkers so-called “journalists” would go if the Minuteman organization employed the terrorist tactics used by The Sea Shepherds? Can you imagine the outcry if an Anglo-Saxon organization called themselves “The Race” (just as La Raza does).

I mean, just look how whacko so-called “journalists” (and other Cultural Marxists) went over the Arizona illegal immigration legislation.

And, yet, these so-called “journalists” actually think of themselves as detached and ever objective reporters? Are you freaking kidding me?
