Another global warming lie: Climate chief was told of false glacier claims before Copenhagen.   But just because these guys have been caught in amazing, fantastically expensive lies that they personally profited from doesn’t mean you can’t trust them, right?

Question: Would every Liberal-controlled school system be better if a hurricane hit it?  Answer: Probably.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan, one of the Chicagoans brought to Washington for “The Golden Age of Hope and Change” (aka, “The Unmitigated Disaster of Unprecedented Proportions”), said recently that “the best thing to ever happen to the school system in New Orleans was Hurricane Katrina”.

He’s right.

New Orleans public schools were terrible before Katrina.  Post-disaster, they were rebuilt from the ground up, along a charter school model that’s already showing great progress.

I’m actually glad to see NOW — the National Organization of (un-aborted) Women — protesting Tim Tebow’s Super Bowl Commercial, as it will draw more attention to it. 

So, the point is that people who think Roe vs. Wade should be overturned lose their right to free speech? Does this principle apply to all Supreme Court decisions? If so, I guess we’d better get started on the Obama impeachment hearings, after the embarrassing disrespect he showed the Supreme Court during the State of the Union address.

. . .

It’s nostalgic to read a press release from NOW again. The organization was last seen sinking into the bubbling tar of the Clinton impeachment saga, babbling incomprehensibly about how sexual harassment really isn’t such a big deal when pro-abortion Democrat presidents do it.

. . .

The Tebows are not planning to use their Super Bowl minutes for a sermon, or to impose their views on anyone. They only want their chance to testify that life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are not an equation that balances out to zero.

Homophobia is the “irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals.”  It applies to a remarkably small number of people, none of whom I have ever met.  It is a petty, childish putdown used by those who try to silence others who dare to criticize anything about homosexual behavior.  These people can’t argue an issue on its merits so they resort to personal attacks.

Sadly, the attacks are often effective.   Immoral and illogical, but effective.  What many people do suffer from is the rational fear that they will be called a homophobe.  Because of that, they don’t dare to share the truth of God’s word or to oppose things like teaching 5 year olds how “normal” homosexual behavior is.

Headline: Teacher Steals IPOD in Public School–Student Laughs — we need more teachers like this.

Amazing(ly bad) Leftist video shown to countless schoolkids — Lots of gross errors and unrestrained bias.  She’s like the alter ego of the crazy Texas guy on The Simpsons who lives to destroy the environment.  The problem is that he is a cartoon character and an obvious parody.  She is real and being shown by the authorities to your kids.

But wait, there’s more: School Kids Taught to Praise Obama: Lyrics and Analysis — Super creepy.   This verse may sound familiar to you, though the original was about Jesus, the real Messiah.  “In his sight?!”  Think about this, people.  Teaching public school kids to praise Obama the same way church kids are taught to praise Jesus?

Hmm, hmm, hmm
Barack Hussein Obama
He said red, yellow, black, or white,
All are equal in his sight

Watch me Get the ACORN Lawsuit Dismissed in 15 Minutes (or Less) — ACORN just can’t get enough attention drawn to their failures so they are suing journalism heroes Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe.  Great move, ACORN.  More opportunities for the public to watch the videos.

Nice job by Sarah Palin in laying out why conservatism is so preferable to Liberalism.

We don’t believe that human nature is perfectible; we’re suspicious of government efforts to fix problems because often what it’s trying to fix is human nature, and that is impossible. It is what it is.

Lack of government wasn’t the problem. Government policies were the problem. The marketplace didn’t fail. It became exactly as common sense would expect it to. The government ordered the loosening of lending standards. The Federal Reserve kept interest rates low. The government forced lending institutions to give loans to people who, as I say, couldn’t afford them. Speculators spotted new investment vehicles, jumped on board and rating agencies underestimated risks.
