Some science with math and logic. This will really hurt your brain if you are a moron, or a liberal. But I repeat myself.

Probability and Global Warming
By Larrey Anderson
//

Imagine we have gone to a movie made by a former politician (who is not a scientist). In the movie we are informed (1) the earth is warming exponentially. (2) Human beings have been and will continue to cause this warming because we release a natural gas (CO2) into the atmosphere. (3) There will be catastrophic consequences from the exponential warming that will occur as a result of this release of CO2. (According to the movie the planet’s icecaps will melt, polar bears will die, and cities will disappear under water.) (4) To prevent these disasters radical changes are required to reduce the amount of man-made CO2 that is being released. (5) Draconian control of carbon dioxide output must be instituted by all governments of the world both by unilateral legislation limiting the use of fossil fuels and by tightly written treaties that further force the signatory countries to reduce their “carbon footprint.”

Liberals always poo-poo the Second Amendment because us gun toting knuckle-draggers scare them.
One idiot thinks the Second Amendment threatens the First Amendment. It’s the same old schtick, liberal pussy scared, wants Second Amendment abolished because he thinks he can’t speak freely. No that’s not right. He said it’s because he’s a scared wimp. That’s probably closer to the truth anyway.

At any rate, here’s a fine rebuttal from Jacob Hornberger over at Prison Planet.

The Liberal Fear of Guns

Jacob Hornberger
Campaign For Liberty

Liberal columnist David Sirota is scared, and he believes that the First Amendment is intended to eliminate his fear. In a column entitled “Freedom from Fear — and the Second Amendment,” Sirota argues that because some people get scared when they see guns and think that the gun owner is going to shoot them if they say the wrong thing, the Second Amendment is a threat to the First Amendment.

The purpose of the Constitution was to call into existence the federal government and, at the same time, to protect us from that government through the grant of very limited powers to the government.

Wenr to an Angels game  last night, so I didn’t get a chance to post. Here’s a lot of Obama articles for your perusal. These all come from American Thinker. Angels lost by the way. They are the best hitting team in baseball and last night they only had four hits. There was some good defensive plays, but dull otherwise.

Worse and Worser by Randall Hoven

The Congressional Budget Office came out with an update to its predictions of the federal budget this week.  For some reason, the CBO did not title its report “Hell In A Hand Basket.”

Barack Obama doesn’t care what you think by Drew Brown

Don’t believe me? Just pay attention to the next two weeks. The organization Barack Obama developed to get elected and still leads, Organizing for America, is attempting to hold pro-healthcare rallies throughout the country right before Congress reconvenes. Said another way, the president who swore to represent you is sending his promoters to tell you to support his agenda. Americans, Obama neither listens to you nor cares what you think.

In Obama We Trust? by Robin of Berkeley

I grew up in a home where God was MIA.  I don’t remember religion being mentioned except occasional references to some sort of God and a heaven. While my family was proud of their ethnicity, they didn’t practice the religion.  Aside from the requisite Bar Mitvahs, they never set foot in a synagogue.

The Obama Clergy Call by Jan LaRue

ObamaCare needs a crash cart. It’s so ominous that President Barack Obama is partnering with God and the God-squad to keep the American people from pulling the plug.

Repeal Obama’s Raw Deal. Now. by William Tate

Back in 2003, when a Barack Obama presidency was little more than a gleam in George Soros’s eye, Jim Powell published a book which was disturbingly prescient. Titled FDR’s Folly: How Roosevelt and His New Deal Prolonged the Great Depression, it outlined how Franklin Roosevelt’s big spending policies hindered, rather than helped, the United States in recovering from the Great Depression.

Pesky voters no obstacle to Obama health plans by Teri O’Brien

President Obama has a problem, one familiar to smarmy salesmen since the beginning of time. His product stinks, and consumers know it.  The packaging looked nice at first. The copy was well-written and well-delivered, but the dogs won’t eat the food. What to do?

Going, going…

Rasmussen:

48% of Voters Approve, 51% Disapprove of the President’s Performance

Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 27% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -14. These figures mark the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President. The previous low of -12 was reached on July 30 (see trends).

Prior to today, the number who Strongly Approved of the President’s performance had never fallen below 29%. Some of the decline has come from within the President’s own party. Just 49% of Democrats offer such a positive assessment of the President at this time.

Check the list. If your mayor is on it, let them know how you feel about it. This organization is anti-gun. Not anti-illegal guns. Make no mistake. They are out for the law abiding citizen’s guns. They don’t care that is has nothing to do with the crime in their respective cities. Gun control is about controlling people. Don’t let these zealots take away your freedom. If you are a voter without an issue, make this one your issue. If a politician voices their opinion that guns are “evil” and should not be allowed for anyone, then be that one issue voter that says no to that candidate. The Second Amendment protects all the others. Your freedom depends on your ability to defend it against tyranny.

From the NRA-ILA site:

Another Mayor Drops Membership in “Mayors Against Illegal Guns”

Since its creation, Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) has signed up a large number of committed anti-gun politicians to its ranks.  It has also signed up some politicians who failed to realize the true anti-gun nature of MAIG.  A number of those mayors have resigned their membership when they learned the truth.

This past week, yet another mayor, Village of Walton Hills, Ohio Mayor Marlene Anielski (R), has resigned her membership.  Mayor Anielski informed the Buckeye Firearms Association of her decision, reporting that she had not realized the real agenda of MAIG.  In fact, she reported, she and her husband are NRA life members!

With the ongoing effort by MAIG to mislead the public and even its own members on its true agenda, it is no surprise that some mayors are choosing to leave the group. How many more mayors don’t know what MAIG is really all about?

All NRA members should ask: Is my mayor a member of MAIG?  If you do not know, check the list here.

If your mayor is on the list, contact his or her office and politely let him or her know you are opposed to his or her membership in Mayor Bloomberg’s radical anti-gun organization.

Quote of the day:

“Weren’t all the thermometers used to make this graph on land?  Doesn’t that leave out the 75% of the earth’s surface that is water?”

It’s in reference to ‘global warming’ that the idiots on the left keep crying in the wheat germ about. Oops, we need warm weather to grow that, and it takes a farmer with all his tractors and trucks to get it to your pie hole.
But I digress. ‘Global warming’ is BS. It’s that big yellow ball in the sky that keeps warming this lovely planet. The warmer, the better. More warming equates to more food growth for a longer time. There are so many things wrong with the ‘global warming’ hysteria, I just can’t list it all here. But, I have a nice article for your perusal. Even if you drink the ‘global warming’ Kool-aid, I suggest you take a look anyway. It might wake you up from your stupidity, if that’s possible.

My Global Warming Epiphany by Randall Hoven

Global warming is a complicated subject.  It therefore takes a lot of hubris or ignorance to think you can explain either the “for” or “against” case in a few hundred words.  But I stumbled onto some data that meets my “keen grasp of the obvious” threshold for understanding.

Recall that we really need to answer “yes” to four separate questions before we join the Al Gore religion of “sign the treaty immediately or we will all die.”

(1) Is the globe getting warmer?

(2) If so, is man doing it?

(3) If so, is it bad?

(4) If so, is the massive-reductions-in-CO2 approach the best way to deal with it?

You might have seen such questions before, but they frequently get mixed up in public discussions.  For example, some people imply that if the answer to (1) is “yes”, then the answer to (4) must be “yes” as well.  If the temperature graph is going up, destroy your SUV.  Or at least switch light bulbs.

Gun Control or, in control of his gun?

Plantation, FL — Last week police were called to investigate an
attempted armed robbery:

A 71-year-old retired Marine who opened fire on two robbers at a Subway
shop in Plantation , Florida late Wednesday, killing one and critically
wounding the other, is described as John Lovell, a former helicopter
pilot for two presidents.  He doesn’t drink, he doesn’t smoke, and he
works out everyday.  Mr. Lovell was a man of action Wednesday night.

According to Plantation police, two masked gunmen came into the Subway
at 1949 North Pine Road just after 11 p.m.  There was a lone diner, Mr.
Lovell, who was finishing his meal.  After robbing the cashier, the two
men attempted to shove Mr. Lovell into a bathroom and rob him as well.
They got his money, but then Mr. Lovell pulled his handgun and opened
fire.  He shot one of the thieves in the head and chest and the other in
the head.
