Should be more clear to you.

I updated my blog roll on the left there.
And in case all the rest that I posted today wasn’t enough, here’s a little light reading for your weekend.
Charles Krauthammer considers President Obama’s blame game in Afghanistan.
Thomas Sowell wants our President to earn our respect.
Victor Davis Hanson sees President Obama’s pattern of “voting present” continue with immigration reform.
Keith Hennessey updates his projections on a health care bill passing this year.
Representative Paul Ryan delivers a powerful statement on health care reform.
Charles Krauthammer calls President Obama “average.”
*** Morris details Senator Harry Reid’s bait and switch tactics to advance the public option.
The Editors of the National Review continue to oppose cap and trade — this time in the form of the Senate’s bill.
There is a referendum. It’s just not the one the Democrats thought it would be.
The American people want less government, lower taxes, liberty, secure borders, a balanced budget, and for the government to stay within the Constitution. In other words, the majority of Americans are conservative.
The liberal buffoons in congress are about to find out just how conservative America is. 2010 is right around the corner. This one term president will be out on his ass in 2012.
Crafting a Conservative, Constitutional Majority: Lessons from BHO
By Blue Collar Muse
Two headlines jumped out at me this morning as I browsed my usual stops on the information superhighway. The first was the results of the most recent Gallup Poll indicating that more Americans identify themselves as Conservative than identify themselves as Liberal. The second was the results of a WSJ/NBC poll showing, for the first time, a majority of Americans say “the U.S. is headed down the wrong track.”
Even in light of the inherent weaknesses in polling and the legitimate arguments available that a poll is merely a snapshot of the country at the time of the poll and things can and do change, these results seem to say a few things to me and hopefully to the GOP. These poll results are not merely a picture of what the country is thinking about today. They are a picture of what the country thinks about what the Obama administration and the Democratic majority has actually done and how that relates to what they believe about the country and themselves. In short, it is a mini-referendum on the last 9 months of “Yes, we can!”

The idiots in the WH speak and it shows. Their stupidity that is…
Rahm Emanuel: ignorance or malice
By CDR Salamander
You need to remember that this man is the Chief of Staff to the Commander in Chief.
OCT 18th on the Sunday shows, he demonstrated one of two things: ignorance on a colosal scale that should call for his resignation – or a deliberate malice towards the American and allied military and civilians who have been working hard on the Afghanistan conflict for most all this decade —- and his willingness to use anything to avoid taking responsibility for national security. If that, then he should receive nothing but our contempt. Personally – I will go for ignorance – as maliciousness on that level is something I just don’t want to believe is there. So, here is President Obama’s Chief of Staff;
The president is asking the questions that have never been asked on the civilian side, the political side, the military side, and the strategic side. What is the impact on the region? What can the Afghan government do or not do? Where are we on the police training? Who would be better doing the police training? Could that be something the Europeans do? Should we take the military side? Those are the questions that have not been asked. And before you commit troops . . . before you make that decision, there’s a set of questions that have to have answers that have never been asked. And it’s clear after eight years of war, that’s basically starting from the beginning, and those questions never got asked.

Here’s a must read on the subject of global warming.
● pass no legislation restricting emissions of carbon dioxide,
● repeal current ethanol mandates, and
● inform the public about how little climate change would be prevented by proposed legislation.
Leading politicians and media figures are insisting that Congress make global warming a very high priority. Global warming is indeed real, and human activity has been a contributor since 1975.
But global warming is also a very complicated and difficult issue that can provoke very unwise policy in response to political pressure. In 2005, for instance, Congress clearly made a very bad decision about climate change when it mandated accelerated production of ethanol. Critics had argued then that corn-based ethanol would actually result in increased carbon dioxide emissions. An increasing body of science has since verified this position. Further, corn-based ethanol is responsible in part for the skyrocketing price of corn, soybeans, rice, and wheat since the mandates began.
Although there are many different legislative proposals for substantial reductions in carbon dioxide emissions, there is no operational or tested suite of technologies that can accomplish the goals of such legislation. Fortunately, and contrary to much of the rhetoric surrounding climate change, there is ample time to develop such technologies, which will require substantial capital investment by individuals.
