On a tip from TED.



Decision that banned a church from feeding hungry on church grounds. Reason: They argued that the church was operating as a dining hall in an area zoned for residential use. The ban went into effect juuuuuuust before Thanksgiving and applied to all local churches.

Stupidity must be contagious amongst these bottom-feeding busy-bodies.

Cant blame Bush for michelle having a 22 person entourage and wasting taxpayer money that way.

This was intentional this is just the lefts passionate hatred of Christians. So much for Hate is not a family value. Looks like it is a family value of the left.

Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air decries the Swiss anti-minaret vote as:

"human rights hypocrisy"
"utter impotence"
and as a "purge on religious affiliation".

....('face palm')........

Seems I heard similar left-wing squealing when Guiliani took the first small, careful steps to clean up Dinkin's vile NYC streets.

And BTW all these gutless "conservatives" jumping up and down about Switzerland, (one little, lone country in the entire world trying to stop the relentless influx of muslims with their inevitable Sharia), should be somewhat dismayed to understand that they share a common view with the rabid Left-Wing Charlie at LGF who describes the Swiss move in these terms:

Switzerland, the country that let everyone else in Europe do their fighting for them in World War II and turned Jews over to the Nazis to save their own skins, has now banned minarets.

In other words, it takes cowardly, Nazi collaborator-Jew killers to resist muslim encroachment upon a culture.

The right should be careful what they sit in.

I saw a frightening thing on TV yesterday. It was one Barbara Mikulski, D-Senator from Maryland. She appeared to be dressed as a giant apricot for Halloween. I was trying to place her voice. Remember the Bugs Bunny cartoon where the stork got drunk and delivered Bugs to a gorilla couple? Babs sounded like the gorilla mom.

She has LOTS of hate mail at R's, D's, I's. She also declined to furnish an official photo. Up for reelection next year.

Climategate, Part One

In normal times, i.e., pre-politically correct, pre-Obama times, the slowly evolving truth about global warming/cooling/climate change would be blockbuster news and the whole sleazy story would already be in development as a movie.

Granted, Oliver Stone wouldn’t be falling all over himself trying to get the tale of Climategate onto the silver screen and into a theater near you but more reputable writers, directors, and producers–whoever they are–would just love to film an expose’ of the global warming charade to acquaint the American people with the fact they have been had for decades.

That wishful-thinking scenario of reputable Hollywoodians exposing the truth about the baloney-science climate farce is as probable as Adam Lambert going hetero or Patrick Kennedy going Catholic.

Regardless of Hollywood and related charlatans, thanks to computer hackers, the truth is finally slithering out about climate change and, God willing, Americans may soon be free of the meticulously-designed guilt for our reprehensible and willful destruction of Planet Earth.

If and when that happens, we hapless human Americans may finally rest easy content in the knowledge that we didn’t cause it and whether it even exists outside the venal minds of greedy publicity hounds in academia and self-serving politicos is very suspect.

The MSM, not unexpectedly, has chosen to either downplay or totally ignore the story out of Britain that has been tagged “Climategate” thereby linking it with the Nixonian political scandal of Watergate.

Such linkage does a disservice to the scope of this scandal which far surpasses in gravity Watergate and even surpasses the papal rebuke of Nicolaus Copernicus and his cockamamie cosmological theory of a heliocentric universe.

In the sixteenth century, only maniacs believed the Earth was not the center of the universe. In the twenty first century, only muckraking, semi-retarded conservatives rejected anthropomorphic/anthropogenic climate change.

Those sixteenth century maniacs were proven less maniacal than seers. The twenty first century idiots are now in the slow progress of being proven prophets.

Thank you very much! . . .
