Since Obama is touting global warming again, as if, I figured it would be a good time to revisit Michael Crichton and a lecture he gave at CalTech.

The “exoneration” by Climategate investigations (like Muir Russell) that never bother to talk to skeptics, create an impossible conundrum of having essentially a trial with judge, jury, reporters, spectators, and defendant, but no plaintiff. The plaintiff is locked outside the courtroom sitting in the hall hollering and hoping the jury hears some of what he has to say.

Given this, I thought it valuable to revisit this Caltech lecture on the state of science and consensus by the late Michael Crichton.

Caltech Michelin Lecture – January 17, 2003

My topic today sounds humorous but unfortunately I am serious. I am going to argue that extraterrestrials lie behind global warming. Or to speak more precisely, I will argue that a belief in extraterrestrials has paved the way, in a progression of steps, to a belief in global warming.

Charting this progression of belief will be my…

…we have this little gem of an article that explains what the Obamacare will do for you an me.
Thanks to all the morons that voted for this shit, our medical system will go from being the best in the world to being the worst in one fell swoop.
Great job libtards and to all of you assholes that decided not to vote, you can kiss my entire ass.

This Is Your Life under Obamacare
By James Arlandson

Thanks, Obama voters. You just imposed on the rest of us degraded medical care and rising costs. This is no longer hypothetical or abstract. It’s real. It’s the law.

Here are some of the bad repercussions of your vote:

1. Decline in pay for doctors

Medicare pays doctors only a small fraction of the work they put in. So if she does $100.00 worth of work, Medicare sends him $20.00 or $25.00. Is it any wonder that doctors pad the bill? One of my students who works in a doctor’s office said in class she’s in charge of billing, and it’s “totally true” that Medicare pays doctors only a fraction of what they did.

Another one of my students told us that the doctor she used to work for (she still keeps track of her friends who work in the office) was getting arrested for fraud. He said, “How am I supposed to pay my employees on such little money? How am I supposed to live?”

Have you sat in a doctor’s office recently? Doctors take in patients per hour at an alarming rate, just to pay their own bills. I can hear their muffled voices in the mini-offices nearby. I don’t imagine he spends more than five minutes — and that’s long — with each patient.

Doctors run through patients like cattle at branding time.

If you don’t believe this will happen under Obamacare, you’re naïve. Costs will be rationed (see no. 3, below), and that rationing will include a doctor’s lowered reimbursement for services rendered.

…here’s today’s reading list.

Elections (They have Consequences).

 

Benghazi

 

Economics

 

Global Warming Scam

 

Military

 

Guns

 

Middle East/Muslim/Islam/Jihad/Douche bags

 

Misc.

 

Media Bias

 

…a little education for you on the free market.

This is an interview that Dennis Prager did with Walter Williams.

Obama doesn’t get this, most liberals don’t. Yeah, I know, racist.

…that President Obama is a moron.

Global warming stopped 16 years ago and here he is promoting global warming. The EPA must be coming out with something so onerous to the economy that he has to jump out in front of it to dull the senses of the morons that voted for him.

There has been no aggregate warming since 1997. Once again, the MSM is AWOL.

Elections have consequences.

President Obama: ‘I am a firm believer that climate change is real’

President Barack Obama held his first postelection press conference today, Nov. 14, 2012, in the East room at the White House. The president took eight questions from the White House press corps; one of those questions was on the subject of Global Climate Change, and the President’s plan to “tackle the issue of climate change”.

Mark Landler, part of the White House press corps and a journalist for the New York Times, asked the President the following question on Global Climate Change.

“Mr. President. In his endorsement of you a few weeks ago, Mayor Bloomberg said he was motivated by the belief that you would do more to confront the threat of climate change than your opponent. Tomorrow you’re going up to New York City, where you’re going to, I assume, see people who are still suffering the effects of Hurricane Sandy, which many people say is further evidence of how a warming globe is changing our weather. What specifically do you plan to do in a second term to tackle the issue of climate change? And do you think the political will exists in Washington to pass legislation that could include some kind of a tax on carbon?”

The president did not shy away from the question, saying, “I am a firm believer that climate change is real, that it is impacted by human behavior and carbon emissions.”

It’s well worth your time.

Ron Paul’s farewell speech

The Texas Congressman — and three-time presidential candidate — said goodbye in farewell remarks on the House floor Wednesday.

He spoke for a LONG time — 48 minutes — but those who follow the man they call “Dr. Paul” likely consumed (and re-consumed) every word.
