Global Climate Change And Idiots

by on Feb.15, 2010, under Commentary, Essays, General, Political

Here we go again. The politicization of the global climate change debate. And both sides are showing their stupidity. We have the idiots on the opposing side to anthropogenic warming pointing to the recent record snowfalls in the mid-atlantic as evidence that there is no warming and the global warming fanaticists saying that it is evidence that there is climate change. SCIENCE!!!! Where’s the science? Don’t any of these people understand the first thing about how we collect and interpret data? One season does not a climate make and neither side should be trumpeting these snowfalls to back up their positions. While it is cold and snowy in some places it is inevitably warmer and drier in others. None of these short term phenomena are proof of anything.

I’ve studied the earth’s climate in various ways for thirty years. There is no conclusive proof that climate change is, or is not, occurring. The recent spate of revelations that the falsification of evidence by climate change scientists was perpetrated is quite disturbing. This especially due to the fact that so much of this “science” has been used to back up the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The fact that the IPCC is an organ of the U.N. is enough to make me distrust it. Yet, the fact that it has now been exposed as using falsified and questionable data truly brings their motives into question. Personally I believe that the U.N. is trying to use this issue as a means of increasing their control over national sovereignty and to diminish the role of the United States in the world. Indeed if one is to control the use of energy production one will control every aspect of our lives.

On the other hand I feel it is quite near-sighted to suppose that six and a half billion people have no effect on the state of our environment. Especially when one considers the vast amount of resources that go into our everyday existence. Our use of fossil fuels is exorbitant and cannot continue at this pace forever. Even if it has no effect on the atmosphere and the climate these resources are finite. At the very least we need to diligently pursue the production of energy by other means. Regardless if climate change is occurring, or if it is caused by man, it is to our benefit to investigate the potential of other sources of energy. Deriding the global warming fanatics does nothing to improve our existence on this planet. Except when they are challenged on their ulterior motives for the paths they want to pursue to alleviate this “problem”.

Yet, the religion of climate change caused by man is quite an orthodoxy. Any ideas that counter their doctrinal positions are met with fierce opposition. No quarter is given and they feel justified in using any means necessary to defend their beliefs. As we have seen with the falsified science we also see in their insidious attempts to pass legislation that will control every aspects of our lives. Not to mention increasing the cost of living for the average person significantly. Yet, they want to place these laws, taxes, and regulations on us with absolutely no evidence that they will have any benefit to the alleviating the “crisis” that they claim is at hand.

Enough is enough!! We need to look at this issue with a level head. We need to have unmolested scientific data to base our decisions upon. We must find ways to work alternative energy sources into our economy without turning the means by which we live our daily lives upside down. This is especially true for the billions already living at the edge of existence. Change is necessary. Yet, the rate and nature of that change is the paramount question. Everything we do must be mitigated by the effects that it will have on the lives of people on a day to day basis. Is this not supposed to be the goal of both sides on this issue. Are we not supposed to be improving the lives of people and our environment to the better of us all? Remember it is God’s planet not ours!!! And he’s going to want it back someday.

Another Day

by on Feb.15, 2010, under 2009, General, Poetry, Uncategorized


I’ll do it tomorrow another day

Some other time I hope I pray

But, time inevitably passes by it slips away

When my life finally comes to an end

How much time will I have allowed to be sent

to oblivion, the nether world, or uselessly spent?

Those who do are the ones who create

They know the clock is relentless that genius always knows the time is late

So, why do I always squander hours like minutes and years like days?

More On Stupidity

by on Feb.15, 2010, under 2009, General, Poetry


It’s difficult to understand stupidity

Especially when it’s seen with such lucidity

Knowledge doesn’t have to be elusive

But, idiocy is so powerfully intrusive

That it fails to ever leave me alone

This universal poisoner of the human race

Drowning us with wave after wave after wave

Encompassing us in the bars of its cage

It seems that for man wisdom is not coming with age

The Gardening Season Begins (Churchill’s Speech)

by on Feb.15, 2010, under Gardening, General, Humor

Well, I just sent out my seed order on Friday. Hopefully I’ll get them soon. It’s been a tough time because I’m traumatized by the deer eating half of my unfenced in gardens last year. So, I’m preparing for battle. I shall go on to the end. I will fight them in the gardens. I will fight them on the lawn. I will fight them with growing confidence in my choice of plants and deterrents. I will defend my land. Whatever the cost may be. I shall fight in the parking lots. I shall fight them on the streets. I will fight them on the paths, and if I should I will fight them in the forests. I SHALL NEVER SURRENDER!!!

What A Great Day To Be A Conservative!!!!

by on Jan.20, 2010, under Commentary, Essays, General, Political, Uncategorized

Who could have believed that the first anniversary of Barack Obama’s inaugaration could be a great day for conservatives. Yet, it has turned out to be just that. What was believed to only be possible by January, 2011 has come to pass a year early. And that is the loss of the Democrats filibuster proof majority in the Senate. No less to have come in the manner that it did. It’s almost like a present gift wrapped in a golden paper of irony. Not only did the Democrats lose a Senate seat, but they lost it in Massachusetts, it was Ted Kennedy’s seat, and it was done by almost the same margin of victory that the President beat John McCain by in 2008. What could be sweeter? So, rather than mourning this day, as I had planned, I can now celebrate.

All gloating aside this truly is a significant election. Hopefully this is a harbinger of things to come. The implications of Scott Brown’s victory are far and wide. After gubernatorial losses by the Democrats, in both Virginia and New Jersey in November, we now have seen one of the most liberal states elect a Republican Senator. This one vote now means that the Democrats have to at least consider the other party when it comes to any legislation. Prior to this, as the health care bill exemplifies, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid could ram through any bill that they could make pallatable to their own party. Now the Republicans have the ability to check the exteme socialist agenda of this Administration and their far left allies.

Yes, there is still much to be done to completely derail this drastic swing toward the western European model of government that we have seen over the last year, but this is a giant leap foward in the right direction. No pun intended. If Massachusetts is willing to elect a Senator based on his opposition to the Obama agenda what does this say about the rest of the nation. Many Democrats are trying to pose the weakness of Martha Coakley as a candidate as the reason for this upset. I hope they continue to believe that that is the case. For it will bode all the better for the conservatives in the 2010 elections in November if this is what they think. This was a referendum on the policies of this President. A giant stop sign saying “No more!”. Expressing the fact that many of the people in this country have realized exactly how radical Obama and the left truly are.

The 787 billion dollar toilet bowl known as the stimulus, miranda rights for terrorists, a trial in civilian court for Khalid Sheik Mohammed, and a tax raising government takeover of the health care system are just a few of the things that have genuinely alarmed the American people. Scott Brown’s election is a bell weather event. It is a sign of things to come if the Democrats don’t recognize that the citizens of this country are not willing to follow them down the yellow brick road towards the Soviet Socialist Republic of Oz. I pray that they don’t grasp this concept and that the people of this nation help return us to the values that made us great.  And faith in God, self-detemination, individual liberty, and limited government are those core values upon which this country has thrived.
