Warmists And A Model Failure

Christopher Booker in an article about 2008 roaring out as the counter to the Warmist religion.

Easily one of the most important stories of 2008 has been all the evidence suggesting that this may be looked back on as the year when there was a turning point in the great worldwide panic over man-made global warming. Just when politicians in Europe and America have been adopting the most costly and damaging measures politicians have ever proposed, to combat this supposed menace, the tide has turned in three significant respects.

You have been jumping at computer models, Warmists.  When are you going to start to understand that?

UPDATE:  More on the same.

Why Palestinian’s Should Not Have Their Own State – Reason #2

They hate Israel, but think that having them do their house cleaning is just fine:

Another PA official said Fatah had instructed all its members in the Gaza Strip to be prepared for the possibility of returning to power.

“We have enough men in the Gaza Strip who are ready to fill the vacuum,” he said. “But of course all this depends on whether Israel manages to get rid of the Hamas regime.”

They are ready to fill the vacuum themselves, they just cannot create it.

No Kidding Sheep Dip Dunked Leftist

Get a liberal finally whining about something correctly but he still has to jab at conservatives. After talking quite a bit about how conservatives really are more generous than liberals he gets down to this:

So, you’ve guessed it! This column is a transparent attempt this holiday season to shame liberals into being more charitable. Since I often scold Republicans for being callous in their policies toward the needy, it seems only fair to reproach Democrats for being cheap in their private donations. What I want for Christmas is a healthy competition between left and right to see who actually does more for the neediest.

Callous in our policies toward the needy? Didn’t you just disprove that notion? We have personal policies towards the needy and think that the government should butt the hell out of something they do so poorly. The War on Poverty worked about as well as the War on Drugs has, and probably far worse. We know this is true because the Leftists are still whining about the poor.

The real reason that liberals want the government to take care of the poor is that they know that way they can force both the conservatives and the liberals to contribute, knowing full well that the conservatives will keep contributing on the side. If they do not do it that way then only the conservatives would be spending on relief for the poor and then where would the liberal compassion be focused?

Welcome to the Party, Sister!

A woman jailed for a headscarf.  While there is some legitimate issues with head coverings in areas that need to be secured (and this still begs the question if it is a good idea for courts and banks then why not everywhere?) it seems like a minor issue.  But Lisa Valentine is a newcomer to the party of denied rights.  Concealed weapon permit holders have been barred from carrying their firearms into area such areas for a long time.  And head coverings do not even have a Constitutional Amendment guaranteeing your ability to have them.

Granted, there is a case for reasonable restrictions, just like there are on free speech (such as the weapon should only be prohibited if it cannot reasonable be used by the military, we can live with that).  But Mr. Fu is still waiting for the statistics on concealed carry permit holders that commit violent first time offenses.  Most murders do not spring into their crime without having committed other crimes first.  Background checks for permits help to insure this, so why are confirmed law abiding people discriminated against?

Most Reasonable Auto Bailout Yet Proposed

Joseph Farah has a great idea, given how bad all the other government solutions are likely to be.  Heck, they subsidized hybrids this way.

Overnight Stupidity

So Obama was experienced before the election and turned into an idiot after he won?  That did not take long.  Big surprise, the guy cannot even produce a decent birth certificate.  How tough is that?  Illegal Mexicans are getting forged papers all the time!  He has got to know some criminal types in Chicago, right?

It Could Happen Here

A Mumbai type attack is not out of the question, especially with the edge they gain from COTS technology. Especially in large urban areas with strict firearm control. All the more reason every American should be armed and trained. It is one situation to shoot civilians while a small military force pursues you. It is quite another situation if a good portion of the civilians you are trying to shoot are shooting back.

More Global Warming Manure

Using computer models to determine the effect of man-made global warming, and so to potentially sue oil and power companies.  It is using computer models people, not measurements.  On this basis I think we could create computer models of the economy that would allow us to sue Democrats for their impact of the stock market.  This could get fun!

The Governor is in a spot of trouble.  At least they did state his party affiliation up front.
