Global Warming Fakery & Gore

Lots of people talking about this admission by the BBC that the earth has been cooling, not warming) for over a decade.Longtime readers know my thoughts on this hooey; I am glad to see this.There is lots of new information coming out indicating that the whole AGW boondoggle was, always, a boondoggle, ("yeah, that earth shaking data? We lost it! and those hockey sticks? Um, kinda...never mind about that!"That makes me glad, all this boondoggle-unveiling.Glad doesn't feel like much, … [Read more...]

Brilliant Artists are Privileged

Now, this is a curious thing. The Rhetoritician makes the valid point that Hollywood wishes to excuse men like Roman Polanski from their wrongdoing, but will work to destroy men like Mark Foley for theirs.Recalling Orwell's Animal Farm The Rhetoritician entitles his piece Some are more Equal than Others.Looking at pictures from U2's big concert in DC last night, I am seeing a pattern emerge.I am a fan -a big fan- of U2's music. I still think Achtung Baby and Zooropa are two of the best … [Read more...]

Save the Lightbulb!

I'm totally with Julie in every respect. My husband has those damn spiraly things all over the house (not in my office or at my nightstand; I won't have them, the lighting gives me headaches). I too am hoarding incandescent bulbs. … [Read more...]

Iranians use Michael Jackson to get attention

The clever Iranians have figured out that the only way to get the attention of the press today is to do a Michael Jackson Merge, intersecting their story with his.More on the excessively pop-minded press by Francis Beckwith.If we could just get these Iranians freed up, maybe a few of them could teach us how to throw stones and stuff at this absurd rogue congress, before they completely destroy our own country with their fake climate bills that Obama has already promised will lead to … [Read more...]

Our freezing summer makes me gripe

It's freezing here; we can't swim, can't have the windows open. Every day is cold. It just convinces me more than ever that solar flares (or the lack of them) have more to do with the ever-changing climate of planet earth.And more resentful of policies, programs and restrictions put in our way, in service to the hoo-hah of Mr. Gore. And why this ticks me off, too. And this. And why not, anymore?I am most seriously unhappy today.The prescient satirical genius of Paddy ChayefskyIn … [Read more...]

One of THOSE round-ups

Yes, this is going to be one of THOSE round-ups, where I clear off all my open tabs of things I just read, and pass them off to you; covering everything from my personal stuff to a video recommendation or two.Fluff: Ann Althouse is running the inevitable captioning thread on this picture. Now I am on record as finding Michelle Obama to be an attractive woman with a mostly pleasing sense of style (but dubious judgment, as in wearing $540 sneakers to a food bank). But I have to admit, my … [Read more...]

While I was out being famous…

So, yesterday I was all-but-out of commission thanks to the server move and my own haplessness, but Thursday I was in Brooklyn taping the last two episodes of In the Arena. The show was only slated for ten episodes, but we squeezed out an eleventh; it ended with Lizzie and the priest (Fr. Kieran Harrington) gettin' loud in a passionate exchange on whether Catholicism is community-focused or deeply interior. Being Irish, we both rather enjoyed that noisy exchange. I'm not sure when that … [Read more...]

Workers: Embrace your mandatory volunteerism!

Comrades, I am out today, but wanted to throw a few links up.On the heels of the very interesting Mike Rowe, of "Dirty Jobs", and his thoughts on work, dignity and AIG rage, some very disturbing reading, much of it thanks to Larwyn:Every American a Volunteer: the incomprehensible legislation that is speeding through Congress and will take away your right to do or not do a thing. So much for Freedom in America, circa 2009.Obama presses for more power, less transparency. What you O-lovers … [Read more...]

The $13 a week stimulus – UPDATED

Hey, $13 dollars is $13, I guess. In January that falls to $8.Here is our 800 billion dollar stimulus mostly-spending bill we must see passed, and we must gratefully accept as the only possible solution to our "catastrophic" problems and our growing malaise. The ONLY solution.This other one, over here, brought up by another Democrat? Ignored. Just ignored.I just have one thing to ask:What does Michelle Obama suggest we do - how we will stimulate the economy with our $13?As I … [Read more...]
