Roundup

This may come as a big shock to you regulars, but I really don’t like poetry.   But I do like this graph.  All poetry should be required to have footnotes explaining what it really means.

Pro-life stalwart Star Parker running for Congress — Yea!

I’ve often been approached to run for public office. However, I always deferred because I felt I could make the greatest difference delivering my message as a free agent, outside the formal structure of politics.

But things have changed and now I’ve decided to run… I’m challenging a Black Caucus incumbent in a district that political pundits rate “safe” for Democrats.

But this year no Democrat representing low income Americansshould feel safe peddling the same plantation policies that already have produced our broken schools, broken families, and broken spirits. Now they’re bringing these bankrupt ideas to the whole country.

Even CA Senator Barbara Boxer recently admitted that this year no seat is safe. Will we resign ourselves to an America where freedom and prosperity are distant memories and where 40% out-of-wedlock births and abortion as birth control are our new social norms?

I won’t. It’s why I’m stepping into this race.

Sharia Law in Action: Christians Imprisoned on Charge of Touching Qur’an Without Washing Hands — media treatment?  Almost zero.

Don’t be fooled by claims that GM paid off its loans — what a joke.  It was bad enough that they stiffed the previous stockholders to pay off the unions, but now this?

In other words, this is just a shell game. As Jim Vicevich points out, it’s akin to paying off your Visa credit card with your Mastercard — and then bragging about your financial condition. Taxpayers are still on the hook for GM. Nothing at all has changed.

Milton Friedman shows why capitalism is the economic view of grown-ups — Yep.

Tom Smitheringale wanted to prove the world was warming. Now he’s another alarmist with frostbite — Hat tip: Mark

This is actually now the fourth year running that warming alarmists have had to be rescued from expeditions to prove the Arctic is warmer than it actually is. It’s a metaphor.

Last year it was British eco-explorer Pen Hadow and his two-person team who had to be flown out mid-stunt, after battling brutal sub-zero weather conditions that gave the team’s photographer frostbite.

The year before, eco-adventurer Lewis Gordon Pugh was similarly thwarted.

He’d planned to kayak 1200km to the North Pole to raise awareness of how global warming had allegedly melted the ice sheet so badly that scientists warned the North Pole that summer could be ice-free.

No such luck. Pugh had to pull out, still 1000km from the finish, when a great barrier of sea ice blocked his route.

The year before gave even more farcical entertainment.

“Explorers and educators” Ann Bancroft and Liv Arnesen said they were off on what reporters described as “a historic 75-day expedition to the North Pole and beyond to raise awareness of global warming’s impact on the fragile Arctic”.

It turned out that what was fragile was not the Arctic but the alarmists, who had to call off their big trip not long after it started, when Arnesen suffered frostbite in three of her toes, and extreme cold drained their batteries.

Russian scientist says Arctic getting colder

An Arctic cold snap that began in 1998 could last for years, freezing the northern marine passage and making it impassable without icebreaking ships, said Oleg Pokrovsky of the Voeikov Main Geophysical Observatory.

Scientists who believe the climate is warming may have been misled by data from U.S. meteorological stations located in urban areas, where dense microclimates creates higher temperatures, RIA Novosti quoted Pokrovsky as saying.

With gay ruling, ECLA reaches full harlot status — the only bright side with these false teachers is that they have removed all subtlety.  They are pure, “In your face, God! We don’t care what the Bible says, except for the parts we like.” Anyone who follows them is being willfully led astray.

Speaking of false churches, here’s the latest from Bishop V. Gene Robinson of the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire

“There are so many other letters in the alphabet. There are so many other sexualities to be explored.” (saying it was time to move beyond speaking of “GLBT” orientations).

“Reproductive freedom” is one of those pro-legalized abortion terms that fails miserably.  It would appear to apply to birth control, not abortion, as abortion kills a human being that has been reproduced.  Don’t let the pro-aborts use that without pointing out the fallacy: If the mother and father hadn’t already reproduced, then abortion wouldn’t even be an option.

George Bush golfing = lazy & evil.  Barack Obama golfing = noble. Check.  No media bias to see here.  Move along, folks.
