AGW Suffers Another Body Blow

New NASA Data Blow Gaping Hole In Global Warming Alarmism – James Taylor – Endpoint Analysis – Forbes.

And the hits just keep on coming. Too many more of these and the AGW (anthropogenic global warming) community will cease to exist. AGW is looking more and more like one of the largest scams ever perpetrated on the modern world.

How many trillions of dollars has the world collectively throw down this rat hole? Money that I dare say could have been put to much better use for numerous other worthy causes.

 

Facts About Social Security

The following is not original with me. It was sent to me by a friend via email. The info was just to good not to share.

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be completely voluntary, 

No longer Voluntary 

2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program, 

Now 7.65% on the first $90,000

3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year, 

No longer tax deductible 

4.) That the  money the participants put into the independent ‘Trust Fund’  rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore,  would only be used to fund the Read the rest of this entry »

The Debt Cold War

Containment, Rollback, and the Debt Compromise « Commentary Magazine.

An excellent article in Commentary Magazine that is worth read

Charles Krauthammer had it right the other day when he counseled that we need to be playing the long game and not get caught up in total victory in this one battle.

Hold the line today. Take the White House and the Senate next year. Pass the balanced budget amendment and zero baseline budgeting in 2013.

WHY . . .

CNN Poll: Two-Thirds of Americans Support GOP’s Cut, Cap and Balance Bill | The Gateway Pundit.

. . . is this not already law of the land?

Would someone from the progressive side of the spectrum please give me one good logical, common sense argument for why the Senate should not pass this right away and have it on the President’s desk for his signature immediately.

To use the President’s well-worn car metaphor. The President and the Democrats in Congress are Thelma and Louise, hands clasped, gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes, accelerator mashed to the floor and speeding over the cliff. Unfortunately, the American people are stuck in the back seat.

It is really very simple. We can not continue to borrow 40 cents of every dollar we spend. Raising the debt ceiling and giving the Feds more money to play with through expanded credit limits and more revenue is like giving a crack addict a suitcase full of his favorite drug, irresponsible in the extreme.

STOP THE MADNESS NOW. CUT SPENDING NOW AND NO NEW MONEY FOR DC.

Update:

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air has more background on the poll. It appears to play well across almost all demographics and regions. Not that it will matter to the Senate or the Administration. We’re apparently too stupid to really understand.

A Vote of “No Confidence”

Wynn’s Rant: One Among Many – Investors.com.

Time for the President and Democrats in Congress to get with the program! Business creates the jobs our people and this economy so desperately need. Lead, follow or get out of the way (getting out of the way would be my preference). It’s painfully clear as each month passes that this Administration hasn’t a clue and doesn’t seem to care about finding one.

How’s that hope and change work’n for you Mr. Buffet, Gates et al? Thanks for nothing.
