Some Advice

To those who wish to enter the arena of debate:

It's a whole lot easier if you champion the fact that you nurture certain biases.  (As everyone does but not everyone will admit).

Then criticism like this just rolls off:


Who? Me? Anti-Islamic? I'm not anti-Islamic? Some of my best friends are ...

The world's Muslims, each day, give us every reason to be revolted by Islam. Want to watch the stoning of a woman who was accused of adultery? Can we start there?

Anti-Islamic sentiments?  Who in his right mind wouldn't have anti-Islamic sentiments?

In the California Senate Race, the LA Times ...

... having to pick between a little-known blogger with no money and little support and a three-term Democrat incumbent with considerable seniority, a committee chairmanship, and widespread support in the liberal community ...

... sides with the national Tea Party movement and ...

... chooses None of the Above.

Of course, they'd never frame it that way, but a reading between the lines leaves no other impression.

AG Cuccinelli Is On The Right Path

Where there's smoke, there's fire.

From "Did a Secret Climate Deal Launch the Hockey Stick Fakery?":

"If my name were Ken Cuccinelli I would want to chase down one or two grant and funding sources; with proof of collusion a case for fraud holds water. That's treble damages and Virginia’s taxpayers will be sitting $1.5 million better off plus expenses."

Our attorney general is being vilified by academics both here in Virginia and around the country.  Perhaps, after reading this, you'll understand why.

The fraud that is global warming theory goes well beyond the "scientist" Ken Cuccinelli is investigating.  It implicates virtually the entire scientific community.  And that community would prefer to be left alone to its devices.  Thus the howls go forth.

Start turning those rocks, Ken.  Expose to the world all those who colluded in this shameful effort. 

And you might want to make room in our prisons for an influx of guests.

Liar

Many of us knew Obama was lying through his teeth when he said - while campaigning - that he wouldn't raise taxes on the middle class.  He proved us to be correct when one of the first pieces of legislation he signed did just that - his SCHIP tax on cigarettes.

But since everyone hates smokers, that one was ignored.

Maybe the lie will now catch their attention:
Backing Off the Tax Pledge?
By Lloyd Grove, Daily Beast

Remember President Obama’s supposedly inviolable pledge—repeatedly uttered during the 2008 campaign and at countless town meetings since the inauguration—that he would never raise taxes on middle-class citizens who earn $250,000 a year or less?

This morning at a Manhattan breakfast sponsored by Thomson Reuters, White House Budget Director Peter Orszag threw that pledge out the window. Instead, he described Obama’s “read my lips, no new taxes” pledge as a “stance” and a “preference” that is subject to study by the president’s newly formed bipartisan Commission on Fiscal Responsibility.

“The president has been very clear about what he prefers,” Orszag said under questioning from Thomson Reuters’ Chrystia Freeland. “That was his stance during the campaign, and he still believes that’s the right course forward. But he has also been very clear that we shall let the commission go do its work.” [link]
You wouldn't allow your children to get away with this.  So what do we do with a president who tries to pull this stunt?
