Global warming has become one of the most popular hammers used by the left to pound on those of us on the right. Their insistence that we're wrong and they are right has become so pervasive it has become the basis for mass hatred of our ideology. This has never been more clear to me than when I read this article by Dave Lindorf posted in the Boston Herald. Not only is he a firm believer in the most extreme predictions of global warming, his hatred for people who differ in opinion from him is all encompassing. His prediction that much of America will be flooded or uninhabitable within the lifetime of his cats fly in the face of logic and science. It would be easy to dismiss this fool if his hatred and exaggerated predictions were not repeated so often. I recommend you read the article and keep in mind that this global warming is about political change, not saving the planet.
The important thing is that we, on the higher ground both actually and figuratively, need to remember that, when they begin their historic migration from their doomed regions, we not give them the keys to the city. They certainly should be offered assistance in their time of need, but we need to keep a firm grip on our political systems, making sure that these guilty throngs who allowed the world to go to hell are gerrymandered into political impotence in their new homes.
With global warming we have a system in place that can lead to the end of so many things we take for granted these days. A group of leftists extremists invented, I would say they hijacked the science but in fact they invented it solely for the purpose of scaring the world into accepting their philosophy.
The area that will by completely inundated by the rising ocean—and not in a century but in the lifetime of my two cats—are the American southeast, including the most populated area of Texas, almost all of Florida, most of Louisiana, and half of Alabama and Mississippi, as well as goodly portions of eastern Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
When you challenge people on global warming you're often faced with many accusations including failure to understand the science, yet when you look at the history of the world it has been about global change. Where I sit at this very moment was under a mile of ice just 20,000 years ago. People used to hunt mammoths and run from Sabre tooth tigers. The seas were low enough that we could walk from Alaska to Russia, most of Europe lived in caves. Around 1000 years ago it was warm enough that Vikings farmed in Greenland these farms are now being discovered as the glaciers recede. At the same time England was prime wine country. Then we entered a period known has the little ice age, even having the "year without a summer". And all this happened without a single S UV on the road.
When I was a teenager at home I remember watching Barney Miller, one of my favorite cop shows of all time, a suicidal environmental extremists broke into the police station and threatened to kill himself by drinking poison (red food dye) Did you ever wonder why there were no red M&Ms? And why did this man take such drastic measures... to prevent the next ice age. This was a real fear for many and the science backed up the belief. The fact is we are fairly new to the idea of understanding how things work. Not to mention that right now on Mars and Venus we are also finding global warming. If our neighbors are experiencing the same symptoms but do not have SUVs perhaps SUVs are not the cause. I say take the time to better understand the causes and root of the problem. Beginning changes is not a bad idea, in fact saving gas and energy is a very good idea, but abandoning all our progress for unknown, and possibly negative consequences. If we allow people to use global warming to silence their political adversaries and push unpopular ideas and agendas then we will certainly find nothing but hard times and political prisoners.
...but we need to keep a firm grip on our political systems, making sure that these guilty throngs who allowed the world to go to hell are gerrymandered into political impotence in their new homes.
The label of global warming denier is being bandied about, well I wear that label proudly.

Most Americans are Christians. Why is this earth shattering news important? I guess it's not really, but it does remind me of one of the left's trick, use polls to change public opinion rather then report it. Or, has I have faced so many time, use polls to prove others are wrong "most people think the war is wrong, you're too stupid to know that if most people think it's wrong, it's wrong." With that kind of attitude perhaps some of the protesters should convert.
I had recived a poll once, they sent me a mailer to answer some questions about President Bush Sr. It involved some questions on a policy I agreed with but the choices were phrased in such a way you had to be a heartless dolt to answer in a positive way, I wish I had kept it.
Don't believe polls buddy. They can be rigged and even when they are not they can be twisted by the press to say what they want it to say...
The unforgivable flaw in Zogby's survey is the biased phrasing of its questions and answers. Two of the most provocative results are based on questions with no middle ground.

So any way since I was not doing much today. I decided to go ahead and play with the voice recognition software that came with Microsoft Vista.
It still has its bugs but I do think it is better than in the old days. I remember the very first time my mother bought Dragon Talk. She was having so much fun with it for little while but then got frustrated because it kept making mistakes. And while this new program is not perfect, it is a vast improvement I think over Dragon Talk. As time goes on I'm pretty certain that I will not even need to have a microphone on, the computers will just know what I want to say it and say it for me. Well anyway now that I have this going I think that I will use it quite a bit. I think that I will find the opportunity to come up with much more interesting and exciting post because I will not have to worry so much about my spelling if I do misspell something I can just blame it on the computer. So, this post here is just a test post and just a chance for me to practice.

I signed up with the Truth Laid Bear which uses an ecosystem to rate the number of visits you get to your blog. I started has an Insignificant Microbe,then quickly evolved to an Multicellular Microorganism. Now, at last, I have Evolved again into a Slimy Mollusc. Thanks to all my many readers. Both of you :) I am the 35,687th most popular blog.
This is the list of creatures in the Truth Laid Bear ecosystem.
With all the joy of the season, I want to share the hope of this celebration with you
The good news of salvation and forgiveness. God's grace come to us.
I am not the only one to send holiday wishes to our soldiers.
Those calls have been coming earlier and more emphatically lately. The daily mail pickup by Battery B, 2nd Battalion, 138th Field Artillery, a National Guard unit from Carlisle, Ky., easily fills the bed of a Chevy Silverado, sometimes twice.
And it not just for Christmas either.
Sgt. Andrea Kaichi of Lexington got a Christmas package of Moon Pies and candy-dispensing penguin toys. She got Hanukkah packages, too. Kaichi isn't Jewish, but a support group somewhere thinks she is; it keeps sending menorahs and candles.
They get presents too.
There are Gummi Bears and chewing gum from U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., sunscreen from cheerleaders in Bowling Green, and packages from a hospital in Glasgow, a church in New Hope and a school in Owingsville. Cases of Ale-8-One ginger ale come from the plant in Winchester. The Department of Corrections sent each soldier a denim bag stuffed with a University of Kentucky calendar and a job recruitment flyer. The soldiers hope never to need the quantities of antifungal nail cream they've received or the ACE bandages, Band-Aids and bags and bags of lip balm. Mattingly likes to dig for the peppermint kind, the same flavor his 4-year-old daughter likes.

The President talked about Syria's actions in Lebanon and their destabilizing effects. Has is par for the terrorist, Hezbollah had to step in.
Hezbollah MP Hassan Fadlallah told Reuters that Bush's comments on Thursday had further complicated efforts to forge a deal between the governing coalition and the Syria-backed opposition, which have been locked in a power struggle for more than a year.
They tend to forget that their own actions have been just a bit complicating, you know like blowing up opposition leaders. Among other actions.
The nine previous sessions have failed because a two-thirds quorum in parliament can only be secured by an agreement between the governing coalition and the opposition, led by Hezbollah.
Hezbollah wants the power to overrule the new president with a veto power, insuring Syria can continue control of Beirut. But it could be just an excuse to keep things deadlock. And don't forget earlier this year many of the anti-Syria leaders were killed, enough to insure no action can be taken in parliament without Hezbollah's consent.

Join us on Saturday, March 15th for a massive demonstration in Washington, D.C., at which we will exercise our rights to assemble and speak on behalf of the majority of Americans, the majority of Iraqis, the majority of U.S. troops, and the majority of people around the world who all say: U.S. Out of Iraq! This gathering will support the Iraq Veterans Against The War Winter Soldier Testimonial.
If you paid any attention to the 2004 election one of the main charges leveled against John Kerry involved his testimony in the Senate regarding the "Winter Soldier Project" where many who participated lied about what they saw what they did and even about where they served.
A month after news of Mi Lai 109 "veterans" of the Vietnam war met in Detroit to exploit the news and capitalize on the dismay Americans naturally felt at such news. While many involved were true vet and witnessed many hard things, the descriptions of crimes being wide spread, overlooked and even encouraged by superiors was a lie. But worse then these exaggerations were the flat out lies by many who did not serve in combat, go to Vietnam, or even serve at all, this fact was not revealed until after Kerry's testimony (and is denied to this very day) but by then the damage had been done.
Read "Stolen Valor" by BG Burkett,
Winter Soldier co-organizer, Al Hubbard, lied about being an officer wounded in Vietnam, and was confronted about it shortly afterward. Hubbard was a E-5 Staff Sergeant who did not serve in Vietnam. Hubbard was one of the men who had the job of vetting the soldiers who would testify during Winter Soldier.

The sign we are using is intended to communicate
"thank you from the bottom of my heart. "
To make the sign simply place your hand on your heart
as though you're saying the Pledge of Allegiance. Then
pull your hand down and out, bending at the elbow
(not the wrist), stopping for a moment at about the belly button with your hand flat, palm up, angled toward the person you're thanking.

Well in an effort to reduce green house gases a shipping company has reverted to an old favorite
THE world's first commercial merchant ship pulled by a giant kite that helps its engines to cut greenhouse gas emissions has been launched in Hamburg.
The SkySails kite is designed to catch strong winds up to 300 meters above the surface of the sea. It is worth €500,000 ($840,000) and projected to cut fuel costs by about 20 per cent, or $US1600 ($1800) a day.
Not a bad ideal, but there is a reason we dropped the sail 100 years ago.
MV Beluga SkySails will make its maiden voyage across the Atlantic to Venezuela in January. Its kite can use offshore winds with the help of its high-tech control pod but would be useless in head-on winds. The system would not benefit ships traveling faster than 16 knots.

Well I have been going to our state capital, Olympia WA to counter protest the awful people who use the war to promote their anti-America ideals. Has they attempt to block the return of the equipment of the Fort Lewis Striker Brigade from Iraq. They stand in front of our troops blocking their way while calling them war criminals and then when challenged claim the lie that they do support the troops. I will return this morning this time with my camera.
I have this as my good excuse for not posting much this week, and unfortunately I will have a hard time finding time to make new posts for the next couple of weeks as my boss liked the little manual I made so much he has asked me to write another. This one is for a whole department and will take much longer to write.

Pairs Hilton has gone and done it again. She proved that she is one of the most beautiful woman on the planet. She did it in gold, to sell wine in a can.
Almost enough to make me fall off the wagon
Meanwhile, since she's already in the city, Hilton told a local paper she's also in search of Mr. Right. "A man to fall in love with, one for life, that I can start a family with," she replied when asked what she wants for the holidays.
And now I want a burger

Having babies is bad for the planet, and parents of more than two children should be charged a birth levy and annual tax to offset the "greenhouse gases" their child will be responsible for over his or her lifetime.
Global Warming is the hammer used to drive the nail of Global Dictatorship upon us all.
