Weekly roundup

kool-aidCheck out Timothy’s post on global warming proponents.  It continues to be an unprecedented, unlimited political power grab.  Some good news:

It’s been a bad year for global warming alarmists. Record cold periods and snowfalls are occurring around the globe. The hell that the radicals have promised is freezing over.

A poll found that 60% of them doubt the claims that global warming is both man-made and urgent. 

The Cop and the Call Girl – here’s a guy who is living out his faith!  Pray for her, and those in similar situations.

Palin helped McCain in many ways.  I hope she comes back.

Barack “Lay off my wife” Obama’s wife used her pro-partial birth abortion views to raise funds for him.

Fellow bloggers – Is it me, or is troll activity much higher than usual?  They seem to be out in volume and are most persistent in sharing their love, tolerance and just overall classy natures.  One guy must be on his 8th IP address.  Perhaps he’s at a public library? 

My librarian wife found this quote.  And I thought I knew all the good Monty Python lines!

You see, I don’t believe libraries should be drab places where people sit in silence, and that’s been the main reason for our policy of employing wild animals as librarians.

Carlotta at Christocentric is one of my favorite bloggers – she is very well informed and always gracious yet doesn’t put up with nonsense.  I especially like one element of her comment policy:

For Believers – An intentionally different standard applies to those who name themselves followers of Christ: persons who claim to be believers in Jesus Christ, yet bring manifestly false teaching on basic doctrines of the faith, and/or promote evil acts, are not welcomed into discussion here.

I realize that is basically what I’ve done here, even though I haven’t documented an official policy.  We obviously have lots of different views here, but I’m with her on not tolerating false teachings on the basics and/or promoting evil acts.

I worked hard with many folks – hundreds of comments worth – then realized that it was a waste of time.  Now I’m quicker to pull the trigger on Christians (whether really false or just really confused) who write such things.  At some point it becomes dust shaking / pearl holding time.

Oil up nearly 11 percent on Saudi supply cuts– Now wait a minute . . . are you telling me that the laws of supply and demand are still in force?  Hmmm . . . I wonder what would happen if we increased the supply of oil – say, by drilling off shore or in Alaska – maybe the price would go down?

This election was all about race, but only for the Democrats. We would love to support a black candidate, provided that he or she held views roughly the opposite of Obama’s.  We supported Clarence Thomas, Condoleeza Rice, J.C. Watts, etc. long before Obama came along, and not because of their skin color.

As conservatives clearly showed, we aren’t anti-women at all, even though we are accused of that. Just look at the reaction to Sarah Palin. We aren’t anti-black either.

But for the Democrats, they have far to go to fulfill Martin Luther King’s dream. It wasn’t about the content of Obama’s character (the media wouldn’t go near that!). It was all about the color of his skin.

I have a dream of a re-energized conservative movement.
