The Truth Will Out

We've spent a lot of time in recent years focusing on those wildly inaccurate computer models that "climate scientists" used to predict future planetary temperature changes.  Incredibly inaccurate.

What we didn't spend much time on, though, was the accuracy - or lack thereof - of past data and analysis.

Maybe we should.

Remember that second wave of purloined emails that came out of the East Anglia "climate change" scandal?  It includes this very revealing admission from one David Rind, PhD, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

Email number 4133:
Concerning the hockey stick (which took up probably 3/4 of the review pages!): what Mike Mann continually fails to understand, and no amount of references will solve, is that there is practically no reliable tropical data for most of the time period, and without knowing the tropical sensitivity, we have no way of knowing how cold (or warm) the globe actually got ... It cannot be reconstructed with any confidence ...
In other words, they don't know and have no way of knowing - with any degree of accuracy - what past global temperatures were.

No matter. They just guessed. And, having guessed, they then went about predicting the future based on past ... guesses.

Should we be laughing at these jokers about now?

Or locking their asses up in prison?

More On Michelle Obama's Snit Fit

Of the many adjectives I used yesterday regarding our collective perception of the president's wife, I left one out.

Over-adored.

Mickey Kaus adds to the list with this:
Michelle Obama’s thin skin is the best thing to happen to Jodi Kantor’s new book, as John Hudson notes. … Mrs. Obama may not fit [the] “angry black woman” stereotype she’s complaining about, but she’s confirming the ”over-adored political wife who can’t stand bad press” stereotype, no? Kantor’s book, from all accounts, is by and large good press for the Obamas. Not good enough, apparently.  
She really does need to get over herself.

Obama Being Obama

At last count there were some 13,100,000 Americans looking - and not finding - employment.  So to whom does Obama intend to provide a helping hand?

Ex-cons.

For the love of God:
Labor Department offers $20M in grants for released prisoners seeking work
Fox News

The U.S. Department of Labor is offering more than $20 million in grants to organizations that will help former prisoners find work.

Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis made the announcement in Newport News on Thursday, saying those who have served their time deserve a second chance to make a positive contribution to society. About 700,000 inmates are released from state and federal prisons each year.

Nationwide, the Labor Department expects to award 17 grants worth about $1.21 million each as part of the program.

The grants will target organizations in high-poverty, high-crime communities.

Solis made the announcement following a roundtable discussion with community leaders. [link]
You can bet,  not one of the "community leaders" who were consulted is out of work.

Helping those least deserving by handing over our hard-earned income to criminals.  May God have mercy.

Oh, The Horrors

To date there have been 1,783 Americans killed fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan since the war began.

And I'm supposed to get worked up over a video of some Marines peeing on the dead carcasses of some Taliban.

Sorry.  Ain't gonna happen.
