SNAILGATE: THE SLIME TRAIL LEFT BY THE ROYAL SOCIETY'S VANISHING CREDIBILITY


The story of the "extinct" giant snail - supposedly killed by global warming, but recently found alive and well on the same Indian Ocean atoll it has inhabited for the last 80,000 years - is developing into a major environmental scandal.
A scandal that obviously deserves the title Snailgate.

As we reported ten days ago under the heading Extinct Giant Snail Killed By Climate Change Crawls Back From The Dead, the sorry tale began in 2007 with the publication in one of the Royal Society's journals Biology Letters of a "peer-reviewed" study by Justin Gerlach.

Gerlach's study claimed that the Aldabra Banded Snail (Rhachistia aldabrae) had gone extinct in the late 1990s due to climate change.

However, this was immediately disputed by four experts in the field, led by Oxford University ecologist Clive Hambler who argued that there simply wasn't enough evidence to justify to claim, and urged Biology Letters to print their prepared rebuttal.
It said: "The vast majority of the habitat is virtually inaccessible and has never been visited. It is unwise to declare this species extinct after a gap in known records of ten years. We predict ‘rediscovery’ when resources permit.”

Had Biology Letters published this, it would have spared itself the embarrassment of being proved wrong this year when the snail was indeed rediscovered, alive and well, on its island home.

Instead, Biology Letters refused to publish the rebuttal on the grounds that it had failed to pass "peer-review."

Thanks to new research by Times environment correspondent Ben Webster, we now have an inkling as to how this may have happened. The two "peer-reviewers" who accepted the erroneous J Gerlach paper were the same two referees who rejected the subsequent rebuttal paper. Though their reasons for doing so are unclear, one evident possibility is that they did not wish to make themselves look foolish by accepting a paper explicitly rejecting the one they had so recently approved.

None of this would have come to light if the snail had stayed conveniently "extinct." Unfortunately for the Royal Society, Biology Letters, J Gerlach and those two "peer-reviewers", the resurrection snail has come back to haunt them by raising some very awkward questions.

Like: ....



We are at the point as a society where the Big Lie chasm betwixt truth and fiction is more or less unbridgeable.  What chance that people like the Gawker's Adam Weinstien, who calls for the arrest of people who don't subscribeby virtue of their common sense and examination of the factsto man caused climate change; what chance that this nerf-ball will even allow himself to be educated on the matter?  Slim to none. Rabid dog. Click-Click.

A party should focus on principles. Republicans would do well to ensure freedom, liberty, and states rights. Inclusion will follow. If you get into the trap of out giving the democrats and group politics you will always lose cuz they will always out spend you.

I think what's going on here is Rand is catering to the GOP hierarchy who are hell bent to keep any but their hand chosen puppet off the national ticket. Right now, the GOP are doing all they can to give us Romney II, and the smart money says they will succeed. Ron Reagan faced the same treatment, but that extraordinary man was able to outsmart the GOP (although they did saddle him with G. Bush).

OORAH! Sound off on Marines singing ‘There’s no God like Jehovah!’

On Sept. 15, a woman named Merrie Pardee Baldwin posted the video on Facebook, where it had been shared nearly 400,000 times at the time of this report. Baldwin wrote, “Participatory worship. I love how excited the men get to sing this song & the camaraderie.”

Inspired by the video, Alan West tweeted, “Oohrah! This video of Marines singing is going to drive the secular humanists INSANE.”

A video of U.S. Marines singing, dancing and worshiping God at Camp Pendleton in California is going viral on Facebook, prompting retired Lt. Col. Allen West to revel in the display he says will “drive the secular humanists INSANE.”

In the video a crowd of Marines sings “Days of Elijah,” a Christian worship song, while raising their hands in the air and shouting, “Oorah!” The troops were attending a Christian worship service at the military base in San Diego County, California.

Some of the lyrics include:

These are the days of Elijah
Declaring the word of the Lord, yeah
And these are the days of Your servant, Moses
Righteousness being restored

These are the days of great trials
Of famine and darkness and sword
Still we are the voice in the desert crying
Prepare ye the way of the Lord!

NEW HAVEN — Former Republican Gov. John G. Rowland, a political rising star who crashed a decade ago in a corruption scandal, fell again Friday when a jury in federal court found him guilty in a low-rent scheme to collect secret paychecks from rich Republican congressional candidates.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Former Republican Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife were convicted Thursday of using his office to promote a dietary supplement in exchange for gifts in a public corruption case that derailed the career of a onetime rising Republican star.

Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry was indicted Friday for allegedly abusing his veto power during a dispute with a public corruption prosecutor over her drunken driving arrest -- in a case that could mar the potential 2016 presidential candidate’s political prospects.


I'm just sayin'

These have all the markings of 2005 when Howard Dean asserted that "Republicans have made their culture of corruption the norm."  Nancy Pelosi grabbed it and used it (absurdly, given the long list of Democrats whose indictments were somehow sent instead to the House ethics committee hearings) to wrest the House from the Republicans, making her Speaker.  The list of slain Republicans included ...

  • Tom DeLay, as raw a political attack as has ever occurred.  DeLay was ultimately cleared of any wrong doing, but was forced out of his House Whip position just the same.
  • Duke Cunningham (who manned-up to taking Jack Abramoff $$, and took his punishment, while Sen. Harry Reid, who was up to his neck in Abramoff  kickback cash went unscathed. 
  • Rep Curt Weldon's office was raided on election day eve, to big headlines.  Supposedly to find evidence of his daughters wrong-doing??- He narrowly lost to the Democrat.
  • Mark Foley was charged with "allegations of sending teenage boys explicit sexually solicit e-mails and instant messages."  All charges were later dropped because of lack of evidence.
  • Rep Sue Kelly lost because she was somehow tied to Mark Foley ... Huh?
  • U.S. Congressman Don Sherwood - Lost after an extra martial affair was made public.
It's probably unfair to say that Democrats have an advantage because, for the most part, their constituencies are Lo-Fos who are themselves inured to infidelities and petty crime.  So I won't say it. 

Democrats (and that incudes major media) are in full panic, so expect anything from that lot.  Won't matter if it's true, just that it muddies the election water.

If you look at the leader of the House, you realize there's not enough gumption in the party to collectively kick one sissy in the balls. That's not only pathetic, it doesn't give anyone a reason to join the party to defeat the Communist bastards now screwing up the country.

#####
Jess is right on this. I keep getting endless and unwanted solicitations in the mail from the Republicans begging for donations to the "cause". I keep returning them with notes saying that I will not donate one solitary dime to them as long as Boehner is Speaker of the House. I am a registered Republican, but Boehner is just another Dumbocrat in Republican clothing. Boehner is phonier that a whole room full of three dollar bills.

Republicans can't use the same legal tactics because it requires the cooperation of the drive-by media. Without that, there's only Fox News. They've done well with Benghazi, but I don't think it'd work if the target is Reid, Pelosi, ad naseum because the DBM likes them personally.

    Liberal Racialists                              

                      





In a statement this morning, (Chicago mayor) Emanuel said he would look for other possible names.

“Over the last few months, my team has listened to questions and concerns from the community, ranging from location of the building to the naming of the school. We take that community input seriously, which is why – as we continue to look for a thoughtful way to honor President Obama – we will look for other possible names for this future school," Emanuel said in a statement.

The Tribune story dances around the reason for his decision to dis Obama.  The original Drudge link was more succinct:


The walkaway moment, for me anyway, is this ridiculous posturing by Ald. Walter Burnett. 


ASIDE: The term "racist" has always seemed awkward in describing the Left's use of it within today's political construct.  A better term I think is "Racialist." 


bigot - a prejudiced person who is intolerant of any opinions differing from his own

Racialist it is then, from here on.  Unless, of course, we're talking about people like Obama and Eric Holder, of whom it may be said, have "a prejudiced belief that one race is superior to others."  They are, then, "racists."  

Wait. Come to think of it, since Liberals automatically look at a person's race before their second thought, all Liberals have a dual profile of racist and racialist.  Thank you.

By Cheryl K. Chumley (Washington Times)

The United Nations slammed Israel for possibly committing war crimes in its fight against Hamas — and then backed that accusation by suggesting the Jewish nation ought to be sharing its Iron Dome defensive technology with the very terror group it’s fighting.

U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said to members of the media at an “emergency” meeting of the U.N. Human Rights Council that Israel was falling short in its duty to protect citizens in the Gaza Strip from getting killed by its rockets.

You know how when MoSup goes off on her class reunion, and I immediately, despite my most determined other-wising, revert to bachelorhoodity?  And when she calls and says she's reached Tappahannock on her way home, and I spring into a frenzy of cleaning, washing and picking up?  Well, she hasn't called from Tappahannock yet, but she will soon, and, holy mother of God, I bent over to tie my boots this morning and snap!  I threw my back out in a major way.  Srsly, while I am sitting in my computer chair right now, even moving to engage the Caps Lock key sends a jolt through me. 

Most people in this state would be screaming out an open window, "Help, I've fallen and can't get up," but I am a warrior and will not!.  Instead, I will spend this time setting the scene so that when she does get home, I will receive her approbation for suffering through instead of her  going into a sullen silence while she bangs loudly about in the kitchen, clanging dishes (and my good knives) and thrown into the dishwasher; and then storming into the den picking up strewn socks and underpants;  and without asking "can I run the vacuum cleaner?,"  fires up the old Hoover that sounds like a jet engine and, one which pitch causes me excruciating pain, which she knows is an audio form of water boarding for me.  You know how that is?

But no.  When she arrives home, she will find me laying on the floor, with a six day growth of beard, a broom in my hand and dust pan not far away.  A scene not unlike the Marine who covered for his platoon and was later found with a .45  clutched in his hand, empty, with 8 Japanese troops, dead – three of them with bullet-holes in the middle of their forehead.  And I will have peach pie served to me, and a back rub.

I am not making this up.

Developed serious, I mean chronic and painful, problem in my lower back about 6 years ago. Came and went, and surprisingly the thing that best ameliorated it was riding my bicycle for about 20 minutes.

But getting up after being down on the floor with the dogs, or cleaning under the fridge, or pulling weeds around the paving stones, was usually a new adventure in discomfort.

Hard to find a comfortable position . . . finally found this tough little pillow shaped like a log that I could put in my computer chair up against my back -- helped measurably. But still, getting OUT of the chair was a chore.

Anyway, about 6 or 7 months ago, it suddenly cleared up. One day I realized that I could get down on the deck to play with the dogs and then get up without any pain. Great!

Then about 3 months ago, my starboard hip assumed the watch and now pains like a sumbitch. Like the lumbar and sacrum vertebrae went on leave and the ol' ball & socket took the conn.

Tried glucosamine/chondroitin tablets without much relief. Did some research and found that the #1 and 2 culprits for exacerbating osteoarthritis are tomato and gluten. Well, JHC . . . how the hell do you avoid those and still EAT, facrissakes!

Guess it's 74 years of abusing the ol' bod, football, baseball, 4-hour watches on steel decks on ships rolling and pitching.

Life's a bitch, and then you die, and in the meantime, gettin old ain't for sissies.

O.K. Cliche festival over.

The virtually instantaneous disappearance of the lumbar pain made me suspect a pinched or crimped nerve, or perhaps a slightly slipped disk.

Whatever the case, the gentle rotating motion of the pedaling, which in turn rotated the pelvis, apparently allowed either the nerve or the disk to get back into proper orientation.

Therapeutic value lasted about an hour, sometimes longer, and once in a while for the rest of the day, given that I didn't pull a real stupid or have to make a sudden jerking motion of the torso. Might not work for everyone.

Wife wants me to go cortisone injection for the arthritic hip problem, but I've heard that the first shot works for around 90 days, the second one for around half that, and the third one for about a week or so . . . after which the shots become ineffective.

Joint-replacement surgery is not open for discussion . . . despite her urging -- at least not yet.

I suggest a chiropractic treatment before anything. The bike ride did seem to realign some stuff, and allowed me to go get a haircut. We'll see.

I had both knees replaced about 8 years apart, the right one when I was 55, the left wheh I was 63. My only regrets are two: I didn't follow the Physical Terrorist's instructions on knee the first, and that I didn't get them replaced ten years earlier.

My lower back is happily trending soutward as I write, pain is as bad as bone on bone arthritis was in my knees fifteen years ago, the sawbones says it's sciatica, so it's back to the Physical Terrorist again.

I figured out why so many Physical Terrorists are cute young women. A man, a real man anyway, will simply not deck a pretty girl with a quick right hook only because she just caused him some very serious pain, it just isn't seemly.

I work on the other end of the state quit a bit and, when my wife makes her way over there for a while, I have to spend half a day cleaning up the house.

"why so many Physical Terrorists are cute young women"

Hate going to see doctors, and will use any excuse to avoid hospitalization.

But some years back I had what I thought was frozen shoulder (turned out to be impingement, which can be even worse if not treated properly).

Finally acquiesced to therapy 3 times a week at a "Wellness Center" run by the Navy Hospital here.

Therapist was a drop-dead gorgeous Latina with long, wavy, brown hair, doe eyes, sweet breath, and a scent that was in the upper red-mark range of aphrodisiacal. Maybe 35, tops, with about a 25-inch waist and 37-inch rack.

I was around 65 at the time, and I gotta agree with you . . .. she coulda ripped my goddam arm outta the socket and I woulda smiled and sighed for her.

She was married to an enormous Gunny, one of those man-and-a-half types about the size of Shaq with arms like a young Scwharzenegger.

The doc had offered me surgery (scrape the bone ends), which he said would fix the problem but never allow me complete recoup of arm strength or range of motion; cortisone shots, which would diminish in effectiveness over the course of about a year; total immobilization of the joint for about 4 months; or 3 months of rehabilitative therapy.

From the first day that woman took off my shirt and put that transdermal stimulator on my skin, I realized that I had made the right choice. Did she give me pain? Oh, yeah! But sometimes ya gotta pay for those little moments of bliss when the mind recollects in tranquility the warmth, the touch, the scent, the smile, the fantasies.

Years ago, I bent over to pick something up and there was an audible (to me anyway) pop. I was in pain and I could not straighten up. Foolishly, I forced myself slowly to straighten only to find myself in even more pain and unable to bend. My back doctor told me I had a disk hernia and banned me from all physical activity. Then my heart doctor told me that if I didn't stay active I would die. She recommended I get a HealthRider (tm). I did and the back stabilized and I never had surgery.
