My argument exactly

Father of Global Warming Scam says “it’s too late to save the planet – enjoy life while you can”. And the old coot is right. NASA’s own nutcake, Jim Hansen gave us 18 months to do something about his pet scare before we passed beyond the pale, and we didn’t do it! Bonny Prince Charley, the load, gave us two years and we flunked that test too.

So we’re all doomed – fine. I happen to think the planet is not going to die, but if all these experts say it’s useless to try to save it, can we at least save the trillions of dollars our politicians are demanding for regulating the climate? Hardly likely, but let’s give it a try.

Your money on drugs

This is an actual video of a United States Congressman questioning an Admiral of the U.S. Navy. Now I realize that Admirals have little else to do with their time, but assuring a congressman that Guam will not “capsize if there are too many people on it” is probably pretty low down on the scale of usefulness. Keep in mind that you have turned over close to fifty per cent of your income to men like this for them to spend wisely on your behalf. And you know what’s even scarier? The morons who become congressman are the cream of the crop of state politicians. Imagine, if you dare, who is in Hartford at this moment, planning your future.

Taser cops

Here's to you, Granny!

No indictment for cop who tasered 4-foot eleven, 72-year old lady during traffic stop. Tasers don’t give cops an alternative to lethal force; rather, they allow these thugs and bullies a new avenue in which to exercise their sadism. Keep brutal toys away from brutal people, is my rule.

Interesting view of the logistics of war

Getting supplies to Afghanistan – it ain’t easy. I’m pretty sure that the general who oversaw the same operation in the first Gulf war was hired later by Sears to get their own delivery system in order. Great training, no doubt.

They’re not only atheists, they’re know-nothings

James Taranto (Opinionjournal.com) picks up on Politico’s and TalkingPointsmemo.com’s attack on U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina’s mention of “breaking bread” during Passover. Here’s TalkingPoints take on the subject:

California Senate candidate Carly Fiorina (R) sent a letter to her supporters [Monday] in honor of the first night of the Jewish holiday of Passover, which she described as a time where [sic] “we break bread and spend time with our families and friends.”

Add this to the annals of unfortunate metaphors, since Passover is actually a time when most Jews abstain from eating any bread at all.

Passover marks the Jewish exodus from slavery in Egypt, when they were so rushed to escape they didn’t even have time to let their bread rise. Instead, they ate Matzoh, or unleavened bread. Typically, Jews replace all bread and bread products with Matzoh for the eight days of the Passover holiday.

As Taranto points out, Fiorina was referring to “the most famous seder in history” as anyone with any knowledge of Judeo/Christian history would know:

“Where do you want us to prepare for it?” they asked.

He replied, “As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters, and say to the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher asks: Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?’ He will show you a large upper room, all furnished. Make preparations there.”

They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.

When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. And he said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God.”

After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, “Take this and divide it among you. For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”

And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover.”
