Nancy scores kudos

Curmudgeonly & Skeptical

(Right) Rep. Louie Gohmer,t (R-TX), applauds the speaker's efforts to keep  carbon emissions flowing during this cooling period.

Can't wait ...

The wire service "reports" that skepticism is the bane of science.

Curmudgeonly & Skeptical

 See if you can guess the source of this quote:
Once, not so long ago, the planet's prevailing voices were those of the experts--the people who, right or wrong, had years of training to back up what they said. Then came the Internet, and everything changed.
Wrong.  It was the same guy who just wrote this ...
Consider the global warming debate: The skeptics shout. The skeptics' opponents shout back. The scientists insist they have research in their corner. And public debate shifts from the provable and the empirical toward the spectacle of argument.
Democracy in action? That's one way of seeing it. But is something deeper afoot? As the amplification of human opinion becomes more democratic, is the suspicion of the expert and the intellectual--a long-held trope in American society--going globally viral?

Best Man Rigs Newlyweds' Bed ...

The Books of Love

 From Saturday's WaPost -

When a man in the UK was asked to be the best man at his friend's wedding, he was touched. So touched, that he promised not to pull any pranks before or during the wedding. After the wedding though, that's another story.

This man, who is choosing to stay anonymous, has set up  this Twitter account for the sole purpose of automatically tweeting when the newlyweds are having sex. I'm not kidding. Read the entire tweet stream from the bottom up if you want the full story. But basically, this guy was watching his friend's house while they went on their honeymoon and he placed a device under their mattress. This device, which is similar to the one found here, is a pressure-sensitive pad that tweets out when sexual activity starts, when it ends, the force of the "action," and a "frenzy" rating.

I had a boss who recounted doing the same thing, minus Twitter of course, 40 years ago. His actuated a porch light bulb.

GOP just wants to rewind the clock to Bush era.

"This is not going to be 1994 all over again," Van Hollen told reporters at a briefing at the DNC. "The fundamentals are very different today."

Hopefully it will be the Tea Party, not the GOP, who designs the counter offensive.

...  versus an equally  angry American majority.   One now realizing that he treats our great nation like an unruly dog refusing to heel on command.  And I hope we are.

Palin Vs. Arnold: Terminating California
Leadership: Alaska's ex-governor asks a question we'd like answered: Why is California's current governor pushing the same policies in Copenhagen that helped drive his state into record deficits and unemployment?

And why is there resistance to his theory? Follow the money:

Congress Throws Estate Plans Into Disarray
 .... the federal estate tax is set to disappear as of Jan. 1, 2010--for just one year. Democratic leaders of Congress are vowing to resurrect the tax retroactively sometime next year, but the impending lapse has estate planners in a tizzy. They worry the lapse could turn into a nightmare for some families.

I understand that I’m not alone in thinking that the left-wing lugnuts have turned America into the world’s biggest loony bin.  I’m not quite sure how they managed to pull it off, but the evidence of their mischief is obvious and overwhelming.
