Bill of Rights Day

Saturday, December 15th, 2012

Today is Bill of Rights Day.

It was a battle to get the BoR. It’s been a losing battle to keep it.

But as long as its individualist principles live in us, it ain’t dead.

More thoughts on the evil

I’m not sufficiently paranoid to believe things like the following. But that may be because I’m not sufficiently paranoid. An anonymous friend (who is not notably paranoid, either) writes:

Bless me, Father,

For I have sinned.

The news I saw this AM was that the next global warming report by the UN IPCC had been leaked. Leaking blows their favorite tactic out of the water. SOP is to release a heavily politicized “summary” written by politicians and parasites for politicians and parasites. The press and .gov types lap it up. Three months later, the actual report written by sort-of scientists (the kind that suck up to UN agencies) is released. The correlation between the summary and the actual report is rather low.

Now that’s gone. What’s worse for the alarmists, the 2nd draft that was released shows that quite a few scientists know darn well that 1) there has been no global warming for 16 years, and 2) global temperature changes are highly correlated with solar magnetic (aka sunspot) activity. Solar magnetic activity rose from 1920 to 2000, and most research shows that over the eons, it accounted for 60-80% of the observed warming. This is so highly correlated that not using solar magnetic activities in models is fraudulent. Which is precisely what prompted one outraged scientist to leak the 2nd draft.

Now solar magnetic activity has collapsed, the earth is cooling, and warmism will die a well-deserved death. But not before one last round of new carbon taxes, renewable energy scams, and related graft and theft.

Then at lunch I see the news about the shooting. Pushed the flap about the latest, very severe blow to warmism right off the news. Will probably keep it off for quite some time.

Then the thought crossed my mind. No, no one could be that depraved. But it’s been pointed out by people only slightly more paranoid than me that the timing of these rampages is really amazing.

But that thought keeps coming back… I’m really around the bend, or maybe I’m afraid to confront what I see.
