So Easy, Even a Plagiarist Can Do It!

Joe Biden enjoys being vice-president because it’s so easy and he really doesn’t have to do anything (see it here)!

Mr. Gore, I’m Cold

Filed under: Politics — dangrdave @ 3:12 pm

Dear Al Gore,

According to the Washington Post (here), Washington D.C. is in the midst of “the fiercest storm yet in the worst winter in local history.”  D.C. Council member Kwame R. Brown has indicated that “if there is ever a time for a state of emergency, this is it.”

“As of 2 p.m. Wednesday, the snowfall total for the season in Washington had surpassed the 54.4-inch record set in 1899, and it rose to 55.6 inches by 4 p.m. It was even higher farther from the city, reaching seasonal totals of 72 inches in Baltimore and at Dulles International Airport.”

“I never thought I would see a winter like this one in my lifetime,” said Samenow, a native of the area. “The climate was colder back in 1899, when that record was set.”

“National Guard Humvees got stuck in the snow.”  “A canopy collapsed at American University. A roof and a wall fell in at a Smithsonian Institution building in Suitland that houses artifacts. With thousands of pounds of snow on top of every flat roof, more cave-ins seemed inevitable.”

Worst of all, the Federal Government and the United Nations were both closed because of the massive, record-breaking blizzard.  Why would these entities close down when there is so much that needs to be done, right now, to cut global warming?  Why should a little bit of snow hamper the efforts of mankind to save polar bears from melting icecaps?  I urge you to plead with the Government and the UN to return to work to continue to fight against global warming.



P.S. We also received a new record for snowfall in DFW as well (here).

Of Polar Bears and Manatees

Every day it looks like fact is disproving the global warming charade more and more.  I remember hearing the cries from tree-huggers about how the poor polar bears were going to drown as the ice melted; funny, then, to see that Florida is having a problem with its manatees dying from the cold weather (read it on CNN here).  That’s right, approximately 280 manatees, or 5 percent of the total population, have died of “cold stress-related illnesses.”

More Media Bias

Filed under: Politics,Seriously Serious Stuff — dangrdave @ 3:15 am

Okay, here is another example of what I consider to be blatant media bias, this time coming from ABC News.  The front page of abcnews.com today had an article about Obama and Cheney’s dueling speeches.  I didn’t bother to read the article because I felt as though, just in looking at the images that ABC selected, the article was definitely going to be slanted in favor of Obama.  Can anyone seriously look at the two pictures below, put together, and believe anything other than the fact that ABC was trying to portray Obama as an all-knowing, suave statesman, while portraying Cheney as some evil, pasty lunatic politician of whom we need to fear?  Seriously…it’s pure, full-throttle liberal bias.

Atomic Bombs

Filed under: Politics — dangrdave @ 11:12 am

Here’s an interesting video, from Afterburner with Bill Whittle, that a friend sent me from Pajamas TV (here). The video is a rebuttal to Jon Stewart’s assertion that Harry Truman was a war criminal for dropping the atomic bomb. The video is 17-minutes long, but well worth the time. Enjoy!
