I'll Be Laboring

This is my annual Labor Day message. Unlike all those who will be sitting on their butts drinking beer and watching parades - particularly those for whom the day was set aside as a holiday - I'll be honoring the day the way it should be honored. I'll be laboring.

I like to think of it as being the true meaning of the term, "sweat equity."

'She's Hot!'

Red State Update on the Sarah Palin pick. These guys had me laughing at 4:55 am. Not a small feat:

Ah,Sisterhood

Well, so much for all that blather about women sticking together to achieve common goals. Hillary's pissed. She was supposed to be the sister who made history. And there's no way that other sister is going to get her - or any feminist's - support:
McCain’s Pick May Foster Bigger Campaign Role for Clinton
By Patrick Healy, The New York Times

St. Paul — Advisers to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton said on Sunday that Senator John McCain’s selection of Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska as his running mate would lead to a greater role for Mrs. Clinton as she campaigned this fall on behalf of her former rival, Senator Barack Obama.

Mrs. Clinton’s friends said she was galled that Ms. Palin might try to capitalize on a movement that Mrs. Clinton, of New York, built among women in the primaries. (link)
As I predicted, the feminists, when put to the test, have less interest than they let on about "shattering the glass ceiling," and all that. They want their liberal positions adopted by the government - pure and simple.

Feminism. It's almost funny.

Global Cooling Prevents Devastation

You won't read that headline in any mainstream paper, but read the details about how Hurricane Gustav weakened all day yesterday - and why - and certainly the argument can be made.

And that argument doesn't rely on computer models:
Gustav Nearing Louisiana Coast
AccuWeather.com

Tropical storm conditions have reached the Louisiana coast this evening with hurricane conditions arriving late tonight. Gustav is expected to make landfall late Monday morning as a Category 2 or 3 storm.

According to the AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center, despite some weakening throughout the day Sunday, Gustav remained a Category 3 storm Sunday evening. While cooler surf temperatures south of Louisiana may allow Gustave to weaken slightly before landfall, conditions will continue to deteriorate along the central Gulf of Mexico Coast tonight as spiral bands of rain, thunderstorms and winds increase in intensity with the approaching hurricane. (link) [emphasis in the original]
There will still be considerable damage sustained in and around New Orleans today, as Gustav makes landfall. But, because of "cooler surf temperatures," and the resulting weakening of the hurricane as it raced through the gulf, the devastation will be dramatically diminished.

I'm just sayin' ...

Gotta Love These Guys

The children who contribute to DailyKos are about as despicable as they come. It's unbelievable to me that these morons carry such clout in the Democratic Party. Where do they get these people?
