Wednesday Afternoon Reads

The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion...reason and experience both forbid us to expect, that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle..." George Washington's Farewell Address.

  • Which is it Gallup: McCain is Down 8! Or He's Up 10 in a Month! We're Not Sure! Short short article. (Via The Campaign Spot)

  • A surprising leak by the Obama campaign? When the prayer that Barack Obama inserted into the Western Wall was made public, I had an unworthy thought: the prayer sounded suspiciously as though it had been written for public consumption. OF course it was. The papers had it approved and ready to print long before it was ever put in the wall. (Via Powerline Blog)

  • Shooter Kills 2 in TN Church There was a shooting at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville, TN during a children's play. Two people have died, and several more are recovering from injuries that resulted when an unemployed man with a long history of verbal hostility against Christians targeted this specific congregation because he also hated liberals and gays. Guess which part of his hatred the media is playing up? (Via Confederate Yankee)

  • Knoxville makes national news. One of the contributers at Six Meat Buffet lives near Knoxville (so do I) and offers up a more detailed look at the incident (Via Six Meat Buffet)

  • My concerns for America Actor John Voight fears Obama sowing socialist seeds in young people. (Via Washington Times)

  • Junior Environazi's A leading British energy company blitzed the newspapers with full page colour advertisements this weekend which encourage children to sign up as "climate cops" and keep "climate crime case files" on their families, friends and neighbours. The ads, run by Npower, promote a website Climate Cops where "trainees" must complete three missions before they can join the "elite cadets" and "train to become a climate cop". These missions basically consist of a barrage of eco propaganda which the child must simply engage in in order to be accepted as a special agent of the green brigade. (Via Info Wars)

  • The Democrats energy charade The good news, for those of us who actually want to do something to lower gas prices, is that it failed. The bad news is that Democrats will try again before the November elections. And we can expect legislation that would likely hamper current oil and gas exploration. (Via WSJ)

  • McCain promotes drilling for oil off coast. Republican John McCain said Monday that drilling for oil off the U.S. coast is an essential part of any plan to lower gas prices and reduce dependence on foreign sources, and he criticized Democrat Barack Obama for opposing it. (Via Yahoo)

  • Say it with me: Pelosi Reid Obama Barack Obama returns to Capitol Hill on Tuesday to speak with House Democrats, and Republicans will try to spoil the party by linking the Democrats' presidential nominee to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and their reluctance to allow votes on offshore oil drilling. (Via Politico)

  • Obamanomics equals recession What if I told you that a prominent global political figure in recent months has proposed: abrogating key features of his government's contracts with energy companies; unilaterally renegotiating his country's international economic treaties; dramatically raising marginal tax rates on the "rich" to levels not seen in his country in three decades (which would make them among the highest in the world); and changing his country's social insurance system into explicit welfare by severing the link between taxes and benefits?--Micheal Boskin (Via Betsy's PAge)

  • The greens are going crazy. It's hard to ignore the fact that the Greens are going crazy, not just in the United States, but around the world. They are increasingly frantic over the opposition being voiced against global warming, one of the greatest hoaxes in modern history. (Via Intellectual Conservative)

    Consservatives, just a brief moment of your time.

    Please understand these words:

    A chunk of ice spreading across 18 square kilometers (7 square miles) has broken off a Canadian ice shelf in the Arctic, scientists said Tuesday.

    Speaking from the Coast Guard icebreaker Amundsen in Canada's north, Stern said the Ward Hunt breakup is related to what he's seeing thousands of kilometers away.

    He hasn't seen any ice in weeks. Plans to set up an ice camp in February had to be abandoned when usually dependable ice didn't form for the second year in a row.

    "Nobody on the ship is surprised anymore," Stern said. "We've been trying to get the word out for the longest time now that things are happening fast and they're going to continue to happen fast."


    You can now resume burying your heads completely in the sand. But don't forget to fill up your air-polluting, resource-depleting SUVs first!

    Hey Herman! I don't have an SUV! I have something even better! 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass S Wagon with a third rear facing fold down seat! Lovingly referred to as the TANK for a reason!

    I don't buy into man caused global warming anymore than I buy into the notion that Elvis is still alive!

    Since you didn't take the bait, I'll go ahead and complete my argument. The global climate is constantly changing. There are a large number of factors that affect global climate change, including the position of the earth in relation to the sun during seasonal changes. How in the world can you sit there and claim that only one of them is the main cause? My first comment was a sarcastic one intended to show you how ridiculous it is to choose just one of the multitude of variables affecting climate change as the most important one.

    Take a tranquilizer and relax. The sun came up this morning, and it will tomorrow, too. And the day after that; and the day after that...
