Storms dump heavy rain, snow on parts of West - Forbes.com

So many people from the Northwest go to Arizona each year to escape the wintery conditions, typical of life in the cold North.

"Believe it or not, but I am looking out my window in Scotttsdale, Az & its SNOWING! Never thought I would see this!" former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner tweeted.

Watching the effects of Global Warming freezing out the warm winter havens with frigid temperatures and mounding snow, it looks like it’s time for the Government to raise taxes to buy some more fossils fuels to burn, increasing the carbon footprint in the atmosphere to get some more Global Warming going. Obviously, we could use the heat.

Why so cold in eastern U.S.? Winter's 'wild card' in play - USATODAY.com

From USA Today
How, on earth, does one coalesce, what scientists refer to as known patterns of weather that produce warmer and colder winters, unpredictably, with the ‘consensus’ among other scientists that the cold isn’t really happening and that the climate is actually getting warmer?
Or for the flip-floppers, that the climate has been ‘disrupted’ in such a way as to replicate previously known patterns of oscillation in weather systems?
As asserted, a convoluted system of taxation on the less industrial of nations which  produce the least amount of questionably climate-altering emissions should fix it all just nicely, even if the nations which are the greatest producers of such emissions refuse to cooperate. We can just keep our climate to ourselves and that should do just nicely. Right.
Xenophobes might disagree.

Robert M. McDowell: The FCC's Threat to Internet Freedom - WSJ.com

As strikingly as the federal Government brings simplicity, functionality, profitability  and ease of use to things like the Postal Service, Social Security and the IRS, so it lays it’s facile paws on the fastest growing segment of the economy, the Internet. Where there is no crisis, the Administration needs to create one from whole cloth as justification for smashing the adage ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’. And as they have done to healthcare, where there was no crisis, only limited access due to Federal regulations that prevented profitability concurrent with reduced rates by selling policies across state lines, so the Internet will now get to surrender the glory of the American dream of free enterprise to the mucking maw of the Federal Government's inability to get it right.

And, honestly, what politician really stands a chance of making as much or more income than he does as a politician, legitimately, in business-for-self? That’s why they have so much fun playing with other people’s money. 'Win some, lose some' is the adage to which they truly do subscribe in Washington, Because whether they win or lose, they still come out the same. It wasn't their loss to begin with.
The day that America wins will be when we have rid ourselves of the politicians who think that the American Dream is a 'control' nightmare… for those who dream of controlling everything we do in our lives, cradle to grave. And that mentality, so core to the liberal ideal, is the antithesis of the American Dream. When the qualities that made America great will thrive once more will be when D.C. has been rid of what's making America sick: Liberals' need to control and abolish all that they fear, which appears to be, primarily, the freedom of other people to do as they see fit, in the Pursuit Of their idea of Happiness.

South Koreans Less Willing to Humor North - WSJ.com

The North Koreans are to the South what the Gay Agenda Activists are to the majority of Americans: fit-throwing spoiled brats who believe that they can get their own way if they make such a disgusting fuss that civilized people, so as to avoid a scene, will give in to them, as an inexperienced parent might to nasty, belligerent, ill-tempered spawn. And most of society would agree that we would all be better off if they weren't around.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange released on bail - USATODAY.com

Now that he’s “out and about”, Julian Assange is about as a safe as a gay in the military, like any exposed target might expect to be. Accidents happen.

But this thought is not original. About 900 million other people have imagined the same thing.

Revamping of airport checkpoint system urged

Experts agree: With all of the billions of dollars spent on airport security technology, in lieu of intelligence, none of those expenditures has thwarted a single terrorist. It is clear, if investing in proven results makes any sense at all, that the Federal Government should be investing heavily in intelligent, alert passengers and inept terrorists. These are the responsible parties for nullifying the last several attempts to wreak havoc in the civilized world.

Perhaps it is now time for the civilized world to focus on terrorists and not everything but terrorists.They do have unique packaging: always visible, always discernable and, to those not afflicted in the area of intelligent discernment, faithful followers of the teachings of Islam. Maybe we should invest billions in intelligent people who are capable of distinguishing a swarthy middle eastern Muslim male from an 83 year old, invalid Baptist grandma.

In every known recent attempt, terrorists have used a different tactic to evade the latest technology at airport checkpoints, only to be thwarted by information unearthed through intelligence work - or by alert passengers in flight.


The result is an emerging consensus among experts and lawmakers that the checkpoint-heavy approach - searching nearly every passenger - may not be the most effective.

Instead, many of them say, the system should focus more urgently on individuals, gathering a greater range of information about people to identify those most likely to present a real danger. ~ Washington Post



With unemployment as high as it is, those brilliant individuals necessary to accomplish this task are likely to found just about anywhere… except at the TSA.

Winter storm brings snow, ice to Southeast, Mid-Atlantic

December 2010 highs and lows

Thursday's forecast: Winter storms for Southwest, Mid-Atlantic

Scientists: Polar bears could be saved if global warming slows

5 die in crashes as icy storm sweeps through Southeast

Tornado hits small Ore. town; no serious injuries

This is just too funny: Scientists think that if global warming were to subside, the Polar Bears will have a chance. It seems that the “scientists” just need to subscribe to USA Today to alleviate their fears. The above headlines are all in one day’s publication.

With the obvious solution resting in the migration of polar bears to Atlanta and Raleigh, however, these headlines might be more noteworthy in the Real Estate section. Housing prices in the South may have a “crisis” all their own, when “that type” moves into the neighborhood.

Manhunt Underway for Suspected Bandit in Border Agent's Killing - FoxNews.com

The Border Patrol declined to reveal the country of origin of the suspects. Argentina? New Zealand? Austria? The United States? Why on earth would concealing the country of origin be so important as to obscure the truth from the public to do so? It’s starting to sound like the Border Patrol operate similarly to the president’s legal team in keeping hidden what, for  most people,  is considered to be public. In both cases,

it sure looks like someone has something to hide.

Obama: Americans Don’t View Him as Success


Fo’ reeeal, Mr. President. The American people do indeed feel as if Washington politicians, otherwise known as “the employed”, do not represent the people, otherwise known as “the employer”. We believe that “the focus needs to change to the needs of everyday people".

What has become alarmingly apparent though is that, after two years, you are incapable of bringing about that change, since most of the feeling of failure 'sensed' by the people is rooted in your own indifference to the will of the people and your continued and repeated disrespect to the Constitution, the document in which our belief that you work for us resides. The very document you swore an oath to defend. We do, in fact, believe that you are over your skis. And clearly, you do too. Especially when you call upon a former disgraced president, Bill Clinton, to do your job because you can't. What more proof do we need to see (seeing is believing) that even you “sense”that you’re not successful? At least we agree on something.

But the real question for me?
"Is it truly failure when you were never capable of doing the job in the first place? Can an infant actually "fail" at driving a car?"
"Can Pee Wee's Playhouse 'fail' at being the White House?"
Probably not. Success was never possible. The real failure is on the part of the people, in that some of us elected you to a job for which you are clearly unqualified and for which you offered no proof that you were ever able to do in the first place. And the rest of us let it happen. Shame on us.

So don't feel so badly Barry. Even if you can't be a success, despite the audacity of your hope, at least you recognize failure when you see it in the mirror.

FBI: Bomb plot suspect knew about Oregon sting - BostonHerald.com

More Peace from Muslims. But that doesn’t mean that kids, the disabled and pregnant white women aren’t equally suspect at airports where no terror plots have ever been enacted by an American –born Caucasian. I guess, one day, sometime, somehow, maybe, by some fluke it could happen. Yes, it is possible for an 83 year old grandmother to suddenly change her name to Muhammad after converting to Islam and, after obsessing with killing thousand of kids and their mothers and fathers, buy an explosive device, strap it to her walker and shuttle it off to the airport. Yes, when one stops to think about it, that does does sound like a Terribly Stupid Assessment. So the TSA people should ripe for the task, protecting us all from our forebears. But not from Muslims. They don’t categorically supply the greatest number of terrorists to ever attack America. It just, coincidentally, looks that way. Go figure.

A Good Time Was Had By All: U.S. Military Prepares for Economic Collapse

FEMA’s website recommends that American families have emergency preparedness supplies readily available, including food and water, for at least several weeks.

Obama muffed U.S. motto - Washington Times

He makes fewer mistakes than he exercises the audacity to hit the 'Reset' button on American purpose and identity. He is clearly in breach of his sworn oath to defend the Constitution of the United States as he systematically attacks it at its root. For this, alone, he is deserving of impeachment.




Or, maybe he's just incompetent

PayPal cuts off WikiLeaks' money flow | thestarpress.com | The Star Press

If I understood this correctly, a German citizen is allowed a tax deduction for donating money to a foundation that supports Wikileaks which promotes and encourages illegal activity. As any good fence might be expected, dealing in stolen property.

Texan calls for jail time for enforcing Obamacare

It will be interesting to see if this bill survives its first breath of air. Usually, Federal law trumps State law. But this has a unique twist in that it would not be a law in conflict but rather, a law in response. If the Virginia case before the Supreme Court proves that State's prerogatives victorious, then this new Texas bill might just be moot.

But it sure put a smile on my face when I read it.

Latest Pittsburg pension fix: life insurance policies on employees

Now here’s an idea to die for.
The only problem I can see in it is that pensioners might develop costly stress disorders, increasing in intensity with each new report about retirement fund deficits, a problem that would self-escalate. With the solution to the problem of fiscal shortfall so obvious, it is likely few would be able to sleep at night, though the enrollment in shooting and target ranges might climb precipitously. With so many elderly target shooting while increasingly nervous and sleepless, a whole new dilemma surfaces: will the insurance companies payout if the insured is terminated by capital punishment?
