I Feel Sorry For Environmentalists

Especially when it dawns on them that (a) energy - the "green" kind in particular - doesn't grow on trees, and (b) to achieve their goals we'll all need to live in mud huts and eat bark.

Read "Let's face it: none of our environmental fixes break the planet-wrecking project," written by one of the planet's leading tree huggers.

This poor guy is so confused and so wailful that I almost feel sorry for him.


When Will They Learn?

What do Virginia Tech and the University of Kentucky have in common?

Two things:

1) Liberal administrators

2) Boneheaded administrators who think they can keep bad things from happening on campus by banning small metal objects that ... have minds of their own?

See "UK Gun Owner Fired Over Gun In Car" (and expect to be weirded out).

The money quote:

"So…….  What’s up with the University of Kentucky?

"The answer is that it’s probably not much different from many left-leaning universities.  After all, Virginia Tech fought hard and successfully to keep guns off its campus – nearly a year, to the day, before a crazed gunman killed 31 people on that campus." [source]

I think that was probably a typo.  The author meant to write: "... before a crazed gun killed 31 people ..."  After all, Virginia Tech didn't ban lunatics like Cho Seung-hui from being on campus.  It was those dreaded guns (crazed and sane alike) that were banished.

If only guns would learn to obey ...

Conan, move over

Here's our president, in sensational fashion, describing to a small crowd of adoring fans, how he slew the mighty terrorist single-handedly:

So I unsheathed my trusty light saber and, with one powerful stroke, I rived his limbs asunder ...

Lest We Forget

George Bush was the conqueror of Iraq and Afghanistan. The vindicator of 9/11.  And we saw, in the end, what that got him.  What did he go out with - a 30% approval rating?

So it's amusing to see Obama sycophants talking about Obama being invincible now that he ordered the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

Maybe it's worth remembering what it was that did Bush in:

And today?

Invincible? Tell it to the millions who are still unemployed and underemployed. Tell it to the tens of millions who are now receiving food stamps.  Tell it to the hundreds of millions who worry about the future of their country.

That's so yesterday's news.

Obama Tries To Stop The Inevitable

Photos of the Osama bin Laden assassination scene are already surfacing.  And photos of the terrorist himself, in graphic, bloody, room-temperature repose, will surely follow.  Most of which will be fake.  Bringing the crazies who (a) incline toward the conspiratorial, and (b) don't believe anything the U.S. government says out in droves.  Each one of which will fuel the argument that Osama isn't in fact dead.  That the story has been concocted by Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld Obama to get reelected.  Or something.

But here's our president, God love him, thinking he can hold back the sea:
Obama: I won't release bin Laden death photos
By Brian Montopoli, CBS News

In an interview with Steve Kroft for this Sunday's "60 Minutes" conducted today, President Obama said he won't release post-mortem images of Osama bin Laden taken to prove his death.

"It is important to make sure that very graphic photos of somebody who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to additional violence or as a propaganda tool," said the president.

"We don't trot out this stuff as trophies," Mr. Obama added. "The fact of the matter is, this is somebody who was deserving of the justice that he received." [link]
A couple of side noted first:

1) As to Obama's "fact of the matter," what does that have to do with the photos?  Is he simply being na├»ve here (again)?  The fact of the matter is it needs to be proven - as best we can - that Osama truly sleeps with the fishes.

2) "Incitement to additional violence"?  I wouldn't be the first person to suggest that he had no such compunction when the Abu Ghraib photos turned up back in George Bush's day.  And who would he be inciting anyway?  Muslims?  They live in a perpetual state of incitement.  Add it to the long, long list of provocations.  And let them howl.

But to the main point: the photos that the Obama administration is holding on to will be released to the public.  Probably later, it now appears, than sooner.  But they will see the light of day.  Because the fog surrounding the mystery surrounding the demise ... or non-demise ... of the world's most notorious terrorist will only thicken now.  The void that Obama is nurturing will assure that.

And you can bet there will be "sightings" of a healthy, spry - alive - bin Laden surfacing here and there in the far corners of the Earth for decades to come (as they did with Adolf Hitler well into the 1960's).

You don't need photos.  Osama bin Laden is dead.  Trust me.  Yeah, that'll stop the crazies out there.
