Like Hounds Baying At The Moon

Weather happens.  So something must be causing it.

In olden times witches were thought to be able to conjure storms and pestilence.


Today?

Nothing's changed really.  But the sorcerers have been replaced by "scientists" who see evil influencing the planet's climate.  Evil that manifests itself in what they like to call "greenhouse gases."  Gases that cause the earth to heat, to bring rain and drought, to make rivers rise and fall, and cause a host of diseases and famine.

Nothing has changed.

CBS Trumpets 'Groundbreaking' Report Linking 'Extreme' Weather to Climate Change

It can't simply be ... weather.

There must be some nefarious influence on it.  Producing it.  Delivering it to the world.

Climate change.

Texas needs rain.  The gods must be angry.



Nothing has changed.

Yeah, It Was a Waste of Time

But it still feels kinda good:

The House of Representatives voted to repeal ObamaCare.

Yes, it was symbolic and nothing more.

Still, with each swing of the sledge ...


Keep hammerin', fellas.

Giving Credit Where It's Due

I would have expected Newt Gingrich to go charging into the lion's den, sword held aloft, resolve steeling his demeanor, No Prisoners! his battle cry.

But Mitt Romney?

Here's to ya, man:

Romney tells NAACP Obama made it worse for them ‘in almost every way’

I didn't read his entire speech but it appears that he didn't pull any punches when he made his case to the ultra-liberal group that long ago gave up any interest in helping the poorest - of color - among us.

Romney laid it out.  Continue to support Obama and black unemployment - already heartbreaking - will worsen, and Obama's health care plan will bring disaster.

His black audience took in his words and decided they cared not a whit about black unemployment nor disaster, and ...

... booed him.

Wow.

Most Republican politicians, if they chose to attend at all, would have pandered to the crowd by talking about Martin Luther King and about civil rights generalities and about how some of their best friends are black and blah blah blah.

They wouldn't have won over any liberal NAACP members' votes either.

So Romney took the higher road.  He confronted them so that the outside world could see them for what they are.

He succeeded.

Here's to Mitt Romney for the display of courage.  And wisdom.

May neither disappear in coming months ...
