Random thoughts from a warped and fevered mind...
Ladies and gentlemen, it's time to declare the myth of man made global warming dead. In fact, myth is too kind of a word for this sham. It was a great big lie perpetrated by hucksters and con artists (Imma talkin' to you, Al Gore) to wrest control of global economies and make lots of money for the insiders in this massive fraud. Why the harsh words, you ask? Phil Jones, the professor at the epicenter of the controversy and one of the leading proponents of anthropogenic (man made) global warming, has said that he cannot reproduce the data on which much of the hype was based. Furthermore, he has now stated that the world climate was warmer in medieval times than today, refuting the false contention that humans and human activity are causing global warming. Even though the science is made up however, according to Jones, the concept is right. Huh? Look, these researchers were funded through tax dollars, the cap and trade system was a huge tax grab for the governments of the world, and Gore and others stood to make untold millions trading carbon offsets. Always follow the money if you want to find the truth.
I spend a lot of my time just trying to figure out what would Scoobey do.
"We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed..." These familiar words from our Declaration of Independence become more pertinent today as our federal government is more and more governing against the wishes of the people. Even though the majority of Americans are opposed to socialized medicine, the arrogant Washington crowd still tries to foist this boondoggle on the public.Washington has become more about perpetuating power than governing with the consent of the people. Many percieve that the Federal government is a threat to our basic rights. According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll, 56% of the people polled believe that the Federal government has become so large and powerful that it poses a threat to the rights of ordinary citizens. There is becoming a greater disconnect between the government and the governed, and this is a dangerous situation for our great country.
Outside of a dog, a book is probably a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
One of the problems with creating new jobs during this recession has been the uncertainty that the business community contends with from Washington. As long as the rules are clear and the expectations of the tax and legal environment are stable, businesses can make decisions about hiring and expansion. When those issues become muddied, businesses will go into a holding pattern- they will continue to function at present levels with a high degree of caution as to the future. They will not be hiring; they will not buy new equipment; they will not expand. They cannot do so because of the concern over changing tax rules, legal requirements, or accounting changes. What is a good decision today could be a horrific decision tomorrow because the rules have changed, sometimes dramatically. Until there is a some reasonable expectation by the business community of what Washington will be doing, they will be loath to hire and unemployment will remain high for a long time.
It takes a lot of balls to play golf the way I do.
And that, my friends, is my view.
