Facts...and Valid Questions Based On Facts
If one argues that Earth's overall average climate is getting warmer or cooler, one has a 50% chance of being right.
The chance that Earth's climate will change (“climate change”) with or without humans, SUV's, or air conditioning, is almost 100% -- the Earth's climate has never stayed the same [!]
If we could “take steps” to raise or lower average temperature, what would be the correct temperature to strive for (given that changes of temperature of many degrees up and down have occurred throughout Earth's history).
Is it better for Holland and New Orleans to remain above water (they're actually already below sea level), or for vast areas of Siberia and Greenland etc. to become open to farming?
How could attempts to moderate average Earth temperature be coordinated with the natural events that have a proven correlation with climate change (i.e. Solar activity).
Why are the ice caps on Mars melting and can politicians pass legislation to stop such melting?
Why would any sane person seek to destroy the most dynamic economy in human history (the U.S.'s) in the hopes of altering Earth's temperature a fraction of a degree over the next several decades, all based on bogus theories, “computer models,” and self interested socialist demagogues' hopes to finally steal what is not theirs – the fruits of a free economy?
Why is virtually every outspoken “climate change” alarmist considerably wealthy (i.e. Al Gore's income has risen dramatically since he began milking the “Global Warming” cash cow). And why the excessive use of air travel by such hypocrites -- often private jets?
Why are climate change bureaucrats always flying to distant meetings and often staying in luxury hotels (i.e. Bali / $500.00 per night rooms)?
Lastly, how can people be so stupid to be so easily sucked into another socialist con scheme?
For those who may have not yet seen this good overview of the nonsense, please watch “The Great Global Warming Swindle.” It's among many sources that take issue with the nonsense regularly pushed off upon the public as a “science” of doom “unless we act now” to increase government authority over the economy.

Free Lunch and Healthcare
'Still brutally constrained by time and out of the blogging loop indefinitely.
I'd love to write endlessly on the big events of our time, notably the current actions in North Korea, Iran, and our own branches of government as they slouch toward enhanced authority.
After bouncing back and forth as to just how radical or moderate Obama would ultimately manifest I'll just sum up my appraisal in a sound bite (write bite?)... He sucks. What the hell could the American population possibly be thinking?
I'd love to list the many reasons why this guy's act is wearing thin on me but I have no time and others are effectively doing so in better ways than I could. If only a good portion of the population would catch on as to just how seriously this pseudo-Marxist clown is altering the founders' experiment in individual liberty, not to mention his deliberate attempts to considerably weaken the U.S. at a time when authoritarians are emboldened. The vultures are circling and Obama thinks they now like us because he's made some speeches (whoopde-doo). The “good speaker” argument is looking less and less appealing at a time when seasoned and sober leadership is needed on all fronts.
On that note, I'd like to simply leave you with the much quoted words of P.J. O'Rourke:
"If you think that health care is expensive now, just wait until it is free."

Greed and Envy
The common attack word "greed" uttered so often today has become the pejorative of choice among those overwhelmed by envy. Envy is greed (!) In fact, it is often worse because greed often motivates people to pursue a goal or produce something of value to others. Envy seldom motivates anything beyond a baseless lust for unearned wealth or power. Thus it is that the "greedy" capitalist produces advanced civilization as we know it (comparing the present to imaginary "better times" of the past is just ignorant).
The envious socialist produces nothing but resentment, violence, and coercion for the glory of the state and self-absorbed…greedy autocrats.

Liberty vs. Nonsense...
I'm still pretty much off-line for awhile (still hoping to alleviate a thousand computer ills), but I had to get this link in.
