More on the Global Marming Myth

If you want to see how the myth of global warming has gotten out of hand, look at history, and how people who questioned the "norm" where harrassed or even killed.

From Walter E. Williams.

There's a much more important issue that poses an even greater danger to mankind. That's the effort by environmentalists to suppress disagreement with their view. According to a March 11 article in London's Sunday Telegraph, Timothy Ball, a former climatology professor at the University of Winnipeg in Canada, has received five death threats since he started questioning whether man was affecting climate change. Richard Lindzen, professor of Atmospheric Science at MIT, said, "Scientists who dissent from the alarmism have seen their funds disappear, their work derided, and themselves labeled as industry stooges." Nigel Calder, a former editor of New Scientist, said, "Governments are trying to achieve unanimity by stifling any scientist who disagrees. Einstein could not have got funding under the present system."

Suppressing dissent is nothing new. Italian cosmologist Giordano Bruno taught that stars were at different distances from each other surrounded by limitless territory. He was imprisoned in 1592, and eight years later he was tried as a heretic and burned at the stake. Because he disagreed that the Earth was the center of the universe, Galileo was ordered to stand trial on suspicion of heresy in 1633. Under the threat of torture, he recanted and was placed under house arrest for the rest of his life.

If you even question global warming you are made fun of, insulted, and in the case above, you receive death threats.

Bong Hits for Jesus

It's no surprise that school officials and our President are against free speech when it doesn't suit them.

Look at the case of Bong Hits for Jesus.

Quick synopsis:

1. A kid unfurls a banner saying Bong Hits 4 Jesus
2. Principal destroys banner.
3. Supreme Court to hear 1st Amendmet case.

What will be interesting to see is how this fares. The high court has already decided in earlier cases that students did have the right to protest the Vietnam war by wearing black arm bands.

But this case is different because it is about drugs. You already know of the erosion of civil liberties that have taken place because of the "war on drugs".

Finally a Smart Judge

It looks like this judge deserves the term "Your Honor" for his decision supporting property rights.

SARASOTA -- John Coffin won't spend any more time in jail for beating up two sheriff's deputies inside his house, striking one in the head with a Taser gun he took from the other.

Circuit Judge Rick De Furia said at Coffin's trial Tuesday that he doesn't condone the violence against the deputies.

But Coffin, 56, had a right to defend his family and property because the deputies had no right to be in Coffin's house in the first place, De Furia said.

Good for him. Lacking a warrant the cops had no right to be there, and were criminals and deserved their ass whoopin.

American Idol

I hate American Idol. It think it's stupid. Anyone who watches it is pretty dumb, mainly because then they all blog about it and talk about it at work. I really don't care who the hell wins or loses or sings poorly on any given night.

I really don't care, so don't mention it to me ever. EVER!!

A word for today

The word for today is Pronunciation. It's a word I've heard used, but I forgot about it until I was listening to Howard Stern today.

Pronunciation: 1. The act or manner of pronouncing words; utterance of speech.
2. A way of speaking a word, especially a way that is accepted or generally understood.
3. A graphic representation of the way a word is spoken, using phonetic symbols.

Fuck Snipers

I tried to bid on a Mary's Moo Moo for my wife, and I'm pretty good at manually entering bids close to the last few moments, but on this particular item I was sniped by some asshole, onemcgrawfan, on this item.

If you look, you notice I was outbid by exactly one cent, and at the exact time the auction ended.

Singing is illegal

This is totally rediculous. In a town in Georgia, it is illegal to sing in a bar

LILBURN, Ga. -- More than 100 people turned out at a Lilburn City Council meeting to protest a liquor law that prohibits karaoke, cards, trivia, dancing and other games in restaurants that sell alcohol.

Many in the crowd last night were on hand to support the Sports Fan Bar and Grill, the tavern where they have gone to sing and to play darts and trivia and shoot pool.

Police in the Gwinnett County city recently have started enforcing the ordinance more strongly.

Mayor Jack Bolton says Lilburn wants to attract restaurants, but it wants to keep out bars that he says are masquerading as restaurants. City Council members all expressed concern that bars would lead to increased crime in Lilburn.

In February, the police chief visited 17 establishments to tell them that entertainment had to be restricted to television, listening to music and other passive forms of fun.

Of course the jackboot cops are there to squash not only the personal property rights of restaruants and bars, but to kill our fun.

And people wonder why I don't like cops. They've gone from stopping actual crimes to being harassers of regular citizens.

Shopping Experience

We went to visit family near Philly this weekend. It was quite fun.

We went to Tuesday Morning and bought a new Foodsaver. I called my cousin who is up on this stuff, and the one they had in the store was selling for $64.99. On the Food Saver website, the same one is now reduced to $99

They had some sweet deals. We also got some accessories that were incredibly priced. I almost bought two, I was going to sell the second on eBay.

We went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond. We had a 20% off coupon and we used it on a Kitchen-Aid 1 horsepower 5 speed blender. It's pretty sweet. The Osterizer we had was a piece of shit. It wouldnt' even blend soft frozen yogurt. This new one made ice chips out of ice in under 5 seconds. Sweet.

Does anyone know any good smoothie recipes?

I'm just a gun, a gun on capital hill

It appears that it is now legal to own a gun in the District of Columbia. A federal appeals court says so.

WASHINGTON -- A federal appeals court overturned the District of Columbia's long-standing handgun ban Friday, rejecting the city's argument that the Second Amendment right to bear arms applied only to militias.

In a 2-1 decision, the judges held that the activities protected by the Second Amendment "are not limited to militia service, nor is an individual's enjoyment of the right contingent" on enrollment in a militia.

Of course, the liberal elite government in DC and the liberal judges don't think it's a good idea. Actually by reading what they said, I don't think they believe in anything in the constitution should stand up.

Judge Karen Henderson dissented, writing that the Second Amendment does not apply to the District of Columbia because it is not a state.

WHAT??? Hold the presses. So I guess if the 2nd Amendment doesn't apply, then none of them do?

Women and blacks can't vote? Freedom of the press doesn't apply to the Washington Post? The mayor should be arrested, he's a runaway slave.

Come on, get a clue your Dishonor.

Make me rise an hour early just like Daylight Savings time

If you read the papers or watch the news they'll have you believe that computers will crash, dogs and cats will start living together all because daylight savings time begins this Saturday.

I predict nothing will happen. Maybe my watch won't reset it self (it never does) and my microwave will confuse me when I get up for Church on Sunday, but all in all it will be a normal daylight savings switch.

Paxil Withdrawl

So, I decided to go off Paxil. I've been on it for a while, and probably haven't needed it for a while. The main reason I've stayed on it for a while is because of the Paxil withdrawl effects. They suck.

They include
Head zaps-feeling of electrical shocks
Blurred vision-More like what you see when you watch TV and they try to illustrate being high. Stuff moves and vibrates. It's pretty disturbing.
Weird Dreams

So It's in the middle of the first week. We'll see.

Candlewood Suites

I'm away from home for a while because of work. I have the pleasure of staying in a Candlewood Suites. These are pretty cool hotels. They have full fridge/freezers, a microwave, stove, microwave, dishwasher.

They have free washer/dryers for your use, and this neat place called the Candlewood Cupboard where, on the honor system, you can purchase milk, cereal, cookies, chips, and other assorted goodies.

I can't wait till I have to travel back here to stay again. I'm even going to request the same room, room 306.
