An Inconvenient Change

Speaker Pelosi, CNN’s Anderson Cooper, and Mr. Paul Pelosi, Global warming tour

"This trip for us began in Greenland where we saw first-hand evidence that climate change is a reality," Pelosi said. "There is just no denying it. We saw the impact on the local people there, on their hunting, their fishing, their economic survival.
"And it wasn't caused by the people in Greenland. It was caused by the behavior in the rest of the world."
"The science is clear, the challenge is undeniable," Pelosi said. "We have to work together, though, to reach a solution."

How did you spend Memorial Day? I hope that you remembered the countless Americans that gave their lives for this country. I was with family and friends and we discussed the sacrifice that families all over this great country had made and are making because of love ones who have paid the ultimate price for this country in past wars and presently in Iraq.

Nancy Pelosi took a delegation of politicians to Greenland this Memorial Day during Congress’ holiday break for the purpose of changing the way we discuss the subject of Global warming in this country. And the Speaker of the house made a monumental discovery during this trip which was in her own words, “climate change is real.”

What is profoundly ironic about Ms. Pelosi’s epiphany is that many had dubbed this trip the Global warming tour; and one would have thought that Ms. Pelosi would have come back extolling dangers of Global warming and the fact that Global warming is real, but she didn’t. Pelosi and her delegation used the tax payer’s dime to come back with the very important message that the climate is changing, imagine that! I’m guessing that we all knew that Ms. Pelosi.

Pelosi joined by Reps. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Hilda Solis (D-Calif.), Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin (D-S.D.), Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.), John Larsen (D-Conn.), Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), and the token Republican David Hobson of Ohio on the trip.

Rep. Hobson was there so that Ms. Pelosi could boast of a bi-partisan delegation, what Pelosi is hoping is that you don’t realize that she has change the topic of Global warming into that of climate change.

Most Democrats won’t notice because… well they’re Democrats, but this Orwellian redefinition, this shift of topic is, number one, an admission that the shill warnings of the earth burning to a crisp were lies! And second this reorientation is meant to keep the momentum of all the little global warming sycophants while trying to establish the cause on science rather than emotion.

As more scientist come out against Al Gore’s “Michael Moorish” attempt to affect the outcomes of social change on environmental issues by film and DVD, the left senses that it needs a change in direction in order to remain believable even to their committed.

The fact is the left is no longer comfortable attempting to sale the theory that human emissions of CO2 is the cause of global warming and that it is under human power to stop it, now that many more reputable scientist are taking issue with flawed models and flawed theories.

``We do not understand the natural internal variability of climate change the Arctic was as warm or warmer in 1940,the evidence so far suggests that the Greenland ice sheet is actually growing on average. Alpine glaciers have been retreating since the early 19th century, and were advancing for several centuries before that. Since about 1970, many of the glaciers have stopped retreating and some are now advancing again. And, frankly, we don't know why." --Richard Lindzen, MIT Alfred P. Sloan professor of meteorology”

The fact that media and popular opinion is driving this discussion on the left is disturbing especially because it is the left that accuses their opponents of being “deniers” as if people who disagree with global warming advocates have something in common with people who hate Jews and deny that the holocaust really happened.
``Most media reports ignore the evidence for cooling and focus instead on records from land stations, which indicate a 1°F increase in surface temperatures during the 20th century. What they fail to report is that this increase was measured mostly in and around urban centers, and therefore indicates urban—not global—warming.

Also left unreported is the fact that 90 percent of this 1°F urban warming occurred before 1940. If carbon dioxide emitted by industries and cars was causing this warming, should not most of the increase in temperature have occurred after 1940, when industries and cars became more plentiful and, consequently, carbon emissions increased significantly?

Even more interesting, but also left unreported, is the fact that from 1946 until 1975, while industrialization expanded and carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere increased, urban surface temperatures actually cooled. At the time, many in the media feared a new ice age.

Such facts throw into question the belief that global warming exists and that industrialization is affecting the earth's temperature. Nevertheless, the New York Times recently stated: "Human activity is the dominant force behind . . . global warming."

Dr. Fred Singer, professor of environmental sciences and former director of the National Weather Satellite Service, explains that climate change is a natural phenomenon, which has been going on for hundreds of millions of years. Ice core samples from the Arctic, for example, show an 18ºF temperature variation during the last 160,000 years. Dr. Singer further notes that solar activity greatly affects the temperatures and the climate on earth.

But most reports in the media ignore the existence of dissenting views such as Dr. Singer's. According to Scientific American, "few scientists doubt the atmosphere is warming." Time magazine bluntly claims: "Scientists no longer doubt that global warming is happening."

Ms. Pelosi no one is denying that the climate is changing in fact let us agree that it is a fact that the climate is changing and that has been a reality since the earth was formed.

And no one is denying that the earth is getting warmer and/or cooler depending on where one is on the planet.

What we disagree about is allowing you to increase our tax burden in the name of Global warming or Climate change to attempt to fix a phenomenon that is beyond the control of humankind to fix or control in any meaningful way.

And some of us, perhaps just a few resent that you would attempt to insult our intelligence with dishonest political ploys meant to stampede the electorate toward self taxation in order to support your pop political causes

Best News Ever............!

MSNBC notes that Cindy Sheehan, the mother
of a fallen soldier, has given up her position
as "dupe for the left".

I’m sincerely sorry Ms Sheehan, over the loss
of your son. My sympathies were with you,
until you blamed the president personally for
your misfortune. You should have put the
blame where it really belonged.

Since you have been promoted all along, as
the person who "galvanized the anti-war
movement"........... can we now rest assured
that they movement will collapse? I truly
hope so, for the benefit of the country.

Now that you are departing the scene, and
going home to "try to be normal", I wonder
if you will reflect on how the far left used
your grief and pain, to further their own end.
Did you ever consider the countless parents
that your ridiculous actions hurt? Yours
was not the first tragedy of the war, and does
not appear to have been the last. Many have
died, and possibly many more will. It
needent be in Iraq. It might be right here in
the United States on some calm Sunday
morning. It has happened before, and unless
we keep a strong president in the White
House, it will happen again.

The Democrats have no intention of
fighting terrorism,either abroad or at home.
The party that you have chosen to align
yourself with, was once a noble one. But
the years have stripped away any shred of
decency for which they once stood. Now
it is run by liars and vengful losers, who
have the new opportunity to seek reprisals
against those who have done right for the

They have made totally false accusations
against the opposing party, and the President,
in the hopes that some of them will stick.
With the help of the MSM, they have distorted
the news and have even tried to reverse the
legitimate win of President Bush in 2000.

Now that they have wormed their way into
the controlling position in Congress, they are
eying the Presidency. How many more lies
will they have to tell to make that happen.
And more importantly, will they be able to
continue duping the voters into thinking that
they are really going to change things. You
can already count, on both your fingers and
your toes, the complete reversals of
statements and promises made by Reid and
Pelosi, prior to the election.

Your intentions might have been honest at
the time of your grief, but they totally changed
your message and you. I hope that the next
time you decide to fight for a cause, that you
do it in a more reasonable and respectful
fashion. If you can’t, and "rather live under
Hugo Chavez rather than George W. Bush",
I remind you that we have no limits on
emigration. You are free to leave!


Obama’s Health Insurance Pie in the Sky!

It all sounds great, if not a bit "fuzzy". While
claiming specifics, Obama’s plan is as unclear
as Hillary’s and Edward’s ‘04 plans were.

He calls for "government, business and
consumers" to share the cost. Very
enlightening, but he fails to show the proposed
breakdowns in proportion. We all know what
his "proportional breakdowns" will be, when
they are finally exposed.

Government will be the prime supplier of the
funds to float this vote-getting show. Next in
line will be business - both large and small -
that will get huge tax increases (already
threatened by the Democratic Congress),
further choking it’s ability to be competitive
against foreign competition. We also know
that the liberals plan to kill the Bush tax cuts
for the "wealthiest Americans"...... but their
idea of wealthy is anybody making more than
$50,000 per year.

Meanwhile, he backs unlimited alien access to
the country, which will totally bankrupt not
just the health system, but the country as a

"The plan", is supposed to be saving the
average consumer $2,500 per year. But
by the time you factor in the huge increase
in the national debt, the bankrupting of
Medicare AND Medicaid, and the voiding
of the Bush tax cuts "for the wealthiest among
us" we will find ourselves back in the Clinton
hay-days of high taxation and stifled business
and job markets.

Forget about that $2,500 "saving". Only one
gaining anything on this, would be Obama, at
the voting booth...... if he can find enough fools
who would vote for him.

Looking closer at his plan, which the AP seems
to have full access to (what else?).......... it stacks
up like this:

He’s going to retain the private insurance system,
BUT inject additional funds into it (from where I
might inquire?). He’s going to create a National
Health Insurance Exchange to monitor insurance
companies offering the coverage creating yet
another governmental bureaucracy to increase
governmental payrolls and further exacerbate an
already financially bankrupt system. (Where is
the ACLU on this one? What about the privacy
issue, for which they are always making
accusations against President Bush?)

Those "unable to afford coverage", will get a
subsidy on a sliding scale.....from whom, do you
ask?......................guess! It will come from
yours and my pockets............. further increasing
our own costs, in order to pad Obama’s chance
at the ballot box.

Once a plan such as his is put into place, there
will be escalating costs on a daily basis.
Every family making less than $30,000 per
year will be entitled to "some kind" of benefits.
Every alien arriving here legally will get
immediate benefits. Every illegal alien, together
with extended family will be on the dole. I mean,
that is the "Democratic way of life", isn’t it?
Buy as many votes as possible, with promises that
will continue to cost us over and over again. Never
mind that every citizen born and raised here, and
having worked hard all their lives, will be picking
up the tab.

No thanks Barack............ not good enough!
