His letter to the APS gets right to the point of how science has been perverted by the Carbon Cult: "In the APS it is ok to discuss whether the mass of the proton changes over time and how a multi-universe behaves, but the evidence of global warming is incontrovertible? The claim (how can you measure the average temperature of the whole earth for a whole year?) is that the temperature has changed from ~288.0 to ~288.8 degree Kelvin in about 150 years, which (if true) means to me is that the temperature has been amazingly stable, and both human health and happiness have definitely improved in this 'warming' period." It's no wonder that Giaever realizes that "global warming has become a new religion," and that "We frequently hear about the number of scientists who support it. But the number is not important: only whether they are correct is important."

When the MSM is on your side, you can be completely 100% shameless!! Note, this is the LA Times, not Fox ... so it IS "0ut there", it is just so quiet that it is very hard to find.
Turns out all those claims about "The Republicans being slow on the "jobs bill"??? Complete hogwash ... it hasn't been SUBMITTED yet, and the SENATE, Controlled by Democrats is in NO HURRY to pick up this dogs breakfast of flim flam and already failed policies to jack up the deficit even more than it is now!
So, given the president's professed urgency, the next day, Sept. 9, everyone asked where was his jobs legislation?
And, well, it seems the urgent jobs bill hadn't actually been written yet but should be ready in a week or two. When the laughter died, the White House said on second thought the legislation would be ready for a photo op the next Monday.
Well, here we are on the next Monday after that next Monday and we've just learned from the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, Dick Durbin, that actually it seems that body won't really be seriously getting into the legislation for a while yet. The Senate has some other more important business to handle. And then there's this month's congressional vacation, which in Washington is called "a recess," like elementary school.

If you have kids, this article is likely to bring you close to tears as it did me. If you have been a good enough and lucky enough parent so your kids have largely escaped the hammer blows that have destroyed our culture, congratulations and thank you. Your kids may have a chance to lead us from this wilderness at some time in the future.
In most times and in most places, the group was seen to be the essential moral unit. A shared religion defined rules and practices. Cultures structured people’s imaginations and imposed moral disciplines. But now more people are led to assume that the free-floating individual is the essential moral unit. Morality was once revealed, inherited and shared, but now it’s thought of as something that emerges in the privacy of your own heart.The extended family, the church, the social organization (Chamber of Commerce, Elks, Kiwanis, etc), the local government, the state government, and far off and not much seen, the nation were all interlocking elements of where humans lived -- and thrived as the spiritual and moral beings we were intended to be.
That is dead in the US and Europe now -- killed by moral relativism, public education transmitting the most vile and false "values" possible, attacks on the family so numerous and extensive that much like the boiled frog, we have failed to even detect most of them, the destruction of our nation's Judaeo / Christian heritage, work and family ethic to now being only worthy of scorn and derision.
It took us decades to get here -- William Buckley saw it coming in the 50's. We had a short slow-down and mild reprieve under Reagan, but the election of the Democrats in '06 and BO in '08 quickly dumped us over the edge. Our deficit of culture, moral fiber and religion is actually much more devastating and deadly than our many and horrible financial deficits. Those are "only money" -- the loss of the faith, optimism, the basic sense of American goodness, and our national moral compass is likely completely terminal.
If some sort of a union survives in the space that was once America, it now looks certain that it will bear no resemblance to the spirit that was America.
Next winter when there is record cold and snow, we will hear how it is STUPID to mix up climate and weather. This summer while TX has a drought and high temps though, it is only intelligent to look at weather as indicative of climate. It is like "civility in politics" -- something critical for Republicans to follow, and requiring that they be chided for "war like metaphors" and such from time to time, but not an issue as they talk about "attacks on unions" and how their supporters will "take out the tea party".
Why are over 50% of people in this country followers of the climate alarmist view? I'd say that some of them just don't have the confidence to stand up against the elite and be willing to be called "stupid". Free men have always been called names (and much worse) in the face of the power elite justifying their position. The power elite screams so loudly and frequently today that they often drown out the sane and the wise.
We need to stand up and cheer for scientists willing to stand up against the elite and try to preserve the stature of science in the world http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=46212
Dr. Ivar Giaever, a former professor with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the 1973 winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, abruptly announced his resignation Tuesday, Sept. 13, from the premier physics society in disgust over its officially stated policy that "global warming is occurring."
Friedman takes the shibboleth of GW, and mixes it together with the noxious corruption of Chicago style politics and doubles down claiming that scams like Solyndra could work if we had some extra cap and trade corruption to manipulate the energy market even beyond what we do now. I suppose at SOME level of corruption ($10 gas??) even disasters like Solyndra MIGHT be able to make money, but there would also have to be enough US economy left for someone to buy their bloated subsidy product at that point -- something that looks increasingly unlikely.
There's a new Twitter account making President Obama look like a creepy, authoritarian nutjob: @AttackWatch."
Perry told the students, “God uses broken people to reach a broken world.” What does that even mean?

Good article. Listening to NPR the last week I've already heard multiple stories about the evils of Rick Perry -- "maybe" he gave favors in exchange for campaign donations, some of the things he supported in the legislature "might" have benefited him financially due to land holdings, "one time" he talked about TX seceding from the union.
There was certainly ample concern about how good a pilot W was or was not in the National Guard prior to his 2nd campaign.
BO? The lack of curiosity on all fronts is beyond amazing.

Elections have consequences. We mastered the use of slogans and imagery and won the presidency. Now the power is ours to choose our agenda, and we chose not to be distracted by matters that arise—say, the country's economic crisis. We chose instead to pursue the things that we know should be pursued.
I am not anti-business. I get a supreme sense of satisfaction when business leaders approach me and, in a deferential manner, ask for subsidies and regulatory favors that will determine whether their companies succeed or fail. Like solar subsidies. This is the kind of job creation I'm interested in.

Some of these are pretty funny. Guess late night TV has decided it is OK to make fun of BO after all!!!
Saint's be praised -- if they could have figured that out when he was running, it is possible that we would have wised up enough to spare the disaster!

Perry-Rubio ... The end of BO!!!

ZERO jobs created in August!!!
Three years ago "The One" was being hailed around the world and speaking in front of faux Grecian pillars to his adoring zombies. Now our nation sits stagnant, bankrupt and waiting for yet another teleprompter read from the former "One" oops, off by 1! ... now ZERO!
One doesn't have to be "hard hearted" to say that all forms of assistance need to stop at some point for all but the most gravely needy -- the bird must leave the nest, the child the home, the student eventually graduate, and thus the unemployed eventually work -- even if at a lower wage.
It really is simple, and BO is simply a failure.

I know, this breaks the maxim "Never assert malice when stupidity can account for it". I really can't believe that an administration that is already overstressed pursuing the likes of Boeing for trying to create non-union jobs would be so stupid to be prosecuting small but well known AMERICAN companies on the dubius grounds that they may have gotten a few scraps of some wood that China uses by the boat load.
OTOH, this is classic Chicago politics -- punish your enemies and reward your friends with pork and patronage. It is the old Democrat machine standard operation, one that is still rampant in Chicago, and I fear also in the WH.
Please tell me that at least a few Democrats are starting to understand "uncertainty" under BO??
The case is much like our cats playing with a mouse claiming "he appears to have died from uncertainty" as they watch for any sign of movement and then pounce when they see it.
"Regulation and taxes delayed" are in many ways worse than in place -- **IF** one could assume; "we took that hit, now we just need to deal with it" it would be more palatable, but an administration sitting and waiting for any sign of improvement and all ready and waiting to pounce when they see, or imagine that they see it is simply too much!!

Obama is still suffering from the Speech Illusion, the idea that he can come down from the mountain, read from a Teleprompter, cast a magic spell with his words and climb back up the mountain, while we scurry around and do what he proclaimed.
The days of spinning illusions in a Greek temple in a football stadium are done. The One is dancing on the edge of one term.

Another $500 Million of money from the productive pissed away by the arrogant incompetency of BO.
