Shiela Jackson Wheeeeeeeeee!

Sheila Jackson Lee Declares Rodney King a 'Great Philosopher'

Res Ipsa Loquitur

On Friday in response to a Fox News reporter's question about Obamacare, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), a University of Virginia Law graduate, invoked the name of Rodney King calling him a "great philosopher."

Not since Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) expressed concern that the addition of 8,000 service personnel and their families onto the island of Guam might cause it to tip over have Americans heard such moronic craziness.

Do we really pay the Queen of Racism $174,000 per year? [Sheila Jackson Lee Declares Rodney King  ... .]

Shucks, she's just your average Democrat woman in congress.

Let's not blow this up out of proportion

Why is this man suddenly happy?

I find it hard to believe that pre-schoolers solve this in 100 years.  Maybe that's because I've been thinking on it myself since Friday, and it just now came to me while looking at the FLAG PSA a few posts below.

Here's one without the answer —   9668=?

How to show the flag

How to unfold a flag

SFW, but



Some guys can argue politics all day long, but Patriotism is what I'm all about.  We always hear about how to fold a flag properly... but, did anyone ever show you how? We have several patriotic holidays coming up, so this is important.

First: Locate Your Flag...

Second: Firmly Grasp the Edges.... and Pull, Slightly....

A group of international scientists is sounding a global alarm, warning that population growth, climate change and environmental destruction are pushing Earth toward calamitous — and irreversible — biological changes.  [LATIMES]

Here's how Anthony Watts dealt with this one.  Well, you can read it I'll just post a few of the comments which will give you what you need to know (it's all  more contrived climate crap):

Nature, record heat, tipping points, Hansen’s opinion on weather noise, and all that

  1. Fred 2 says:

    Why doesn’t the meme, “We are doomed, doomed I say. So give me more money and control over your life” seem convincing?

  2. stpaulchuck says:

    1895…. we were just coming out of the Little Ice Age. Today’s temperatures are higher than that. *shock* *surprise* [/snark]

    In point of fact we are merely approaching the Middle Ages Warm Period temperatures. That was a time period which was absolutely great for humans and other creatures, yet we’re supposed to be horrified. What a crock of BS.

The LA TIMES, On the discovery of  phytoplankton (carbon dioxide munchers -) which the AGW lobby had already listed as goners, this amusing insight.

So, yes, the phytoplankton could have been growing for a long time, Bontempi said, which she finds "fascinating."

"Things are happening on this planet that we never knew existed."

But let's not let this "setback" keep us from our appointed rounds,quoth Algore, and his merry band? Again from Anthony Watts.

Blah-Blah- Blah.  I know that most of you are also utterly confounded by the AGW climate lobby's refusal to acknowledge that they are thoroughly discredited.  Take James Hansen, (when news first leaked that Tipper discovered Al was screwing someone else, everyone's first guess was Hansen),   head of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies.  How does he keep his job?  How can he possibly have any standing left in the scientific community?  The same goes for Michael "Hockey Stick" Mann.  Rather than carry coal to Newcastle,  I'll suggest that this  is an epiphany.

Ben Stein examines the issue of academic freedom and decides that there is none when it comes to the debate over intelligent design.  Stein's not arguing for or against "intelligent design" (which is not "creationism"), but rather the "scientific community's response to any debate. And, I do mean any.  What we find are the same academia mindsets (the debate is over), catch-phrases (the debate is over),  and  penalty for straying outside the box - excommunication.  Trust me on this one - at least begin watching, or bookmark it.

This is the whole movie.
