To Those Who Take Global Warming On Faith

This must be discomfiting:

What is it about climate scientists and fraud, deceit, and prevarication?

Obama Brings Change

Did he fix the problems at America's airport terminals?

No.


Change you can believe in.

Earth To Politico:

You somehow find this to be a change of course:

"Lisa Murkowski isn’t gunning down caribou on national TV like that other famous Alaskan, but the Republican lawmaker is going rogue in the Senate just weeks after staging the most stunning back-from-the-dead political win of the 2010 cycle."

In fact, that's what got her in trouble with Republicans in the first place, wasn't it?  Going "rogue"?

Just as it will again next time around.

And the next.

Till she's finally tossed.

Congress's Monstrous Legal Legacy
By Kimberley A. Strassel, Wall Street Journal

The historians will long be fighting over the legislative legacy of the 111th Congress. As to its legal legacy, the only real question is whether this just-finished Democratic Congress was the most unserious in decades, or the most unserious in history.

That much is clear from the recent ObamaCare court proceedings. Federal Judge Henry Hudson, responding to a lawsuit by the state of Virginia, last week struck down the core of the law, the individual mandate. His decision came the same week that a coalition of 20 states presented oral arguments against the health law in front of Florida federal Judge Roger Vinson. In October, Judge Vinson ruled against the Obama Justice Department's motion to dismiss the states' lawsuit.

[ObamaCare] is "in its design, the most profoundly unconstitutional statute in American history; in its execution, one of the most incompetent ones," says David Rivkin, the lawyer who represents the 20 state plaintiffs in the Florida suit. [link]
I'm reminded that it was this same shockingly unserious Congress of the United States of America that didn't feel it necessary to even meet its first obligation to the people of this country.  The Democratic leadership thereof decided that it didn't have to even pass a budget around which the government could effectively operate.  So it went about its business, for the first time in this nation's history, without one.

And then there is ObamaCare.

"[T]he only real question is whether this just-finished Democratic Congress was the most unserious in decades, or the most unserious in history"?  Is there any doubt in anyone's mind?

A Shining Example

Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel asks (see "ObamaCare Embarrasses Our System of Gov't"):

"The historians will long be fighting over the legislative legacy of the 111th Congress. As to its legal legacy, the only real question is whether this just-finished Democratic Congress was the most unserious in decades, or the most unserious in history."

How unserious are these clowns?  Showcasing Robert Menendez, United States senator, New Jersey:
A Letter to Santa Claus
Huffington Post

December 23, 2010

Dear Santa Claus,

I am writing out of concern, because you may have to move from the North Pole due to the dramatic melting of Arctic sea ice. The Navy's chief oceanographer says that by the summer of 2020 the North Pole may not have summer ice and other scientists project that an ice-free Arctic is possible as soon as 2012!

Scientists overwhelmingly agree that polar ice is melting because of greenhouse gas pollution and I am working hard to reduce these emissions. But there is probably nothing we can do in time to save the North Pole. I am worried about your safety and your ability to deliver billions of Christmas gifts if the ice cap on the North Pole no longer stays frozen all year. What will happen to your house, your workshop, the elves' houses and your reindeer barns?

I want you to know that if you want to ... [link]
For the love of God.
