But we were supposed to see 50 million people by 2010 driven from their homes by rising oceans. It was going to be Bye-bye Bahamas and So long, St. Lucia as the tourist havens were inundated with the frothing tides of melted glaciers all because of global warming. SAo said the United Nations. So what's up with this? Where are Peter, Paul and Mary when you need them, asking the musical quetion, "Where have all the refugees gone?"        ...

in Syria, with and there is silence from Washington, D.C., depite the Libya precedent. Could it be that Bashar Assad has friends in high places?      ...

This would be perfectly fine if the commander in chief hadn't run for the job saying that he wouldn't be part of treating terrorists like, well terrorists, extremely dangeorus, unstable and bloodthirsty. Yet that's exactly what he's doing. So where's the outcry from the people who said it was bad for the previous commander in chief to treat terrorists like human nitroglycerine? Could it be that there was some, uh, shalel we say, bad faith?    ...

The president and opposition Republicans backed nuclear power on Monday, as noted here. The president doing exactly come out himself, though. He let his staff do the talking. Plausible deniability for 2012 or just a finger in the wind? Smart money bets on the latter.  ...

Fast and furious

So the ATF called its brilliant plan to supply weaponry to gangs in Mexico. "Many ATF officers were "anguished" over Operation Fast and Furious, saying it was inevitable that guns would be used to commit crimes, thus putting blood on the ATF's hands," a story notes. Some of that blood, it turns out, was shed by a Border Patrol agent. "Anguish" probably falls well short of what others think of Operation Fast and Furious.  ...

Why have the Plames not alerted us to this?

Perhaps because they missed it? Or that someone has been sipping too much sweet mint tea? And failing to be truthful.  ...

Wasn’t Gitmo a burr in the hide of Islam?

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

That was then, when it was a political convenience. Now, not so much. Funny, if Gitmo was actually inciting Muslims to attack the Great Satan then, why is it not now? And if it is still a clarion call to jihad, why is Gitmo still open? Surely it coouldn't have been just a campaign promise?        ...

Not exactly flush with success

Seems that San Fran, known for its eclectic tastes, has developed an aversion to odors generated with the aid of its environmental consciousness. Low-flow toilets appear to lack the ooomph to push things along through the sewer system. And now the people who pulled the punch from the flush are unhappy that bleach might have to be employed to clean up their mess. Strangely, SF seems still to be intent on sending its effluent out into its famous bay. Kind of puts a different spin on ...

Looks as though Pueblo is interested in getting a nuke plant. Wonder where the uraniumn dioxide might come from? Guesses? Anyone? Anyone at all?  ...

It's not just for Wisconsin anymore. Not that this comes as a surpise - it's been going on since the '60s and '70s.  ...

Does NASCAR give a military discount?

Maybe it will have to, just to keep the ad dollars rolling in. But then, what's next? Is the NFL going to lose those Marine Corps ads?  ...

Ol' Jimmuh, who hasn't figured out yet what hit him in Iran, demonstrates his continuing failure to get it as events replay themselves. Here's a clue, Jimmuh.  ...

Wal-Mart gets, well, the bill. So why would that be? Here's a clue. Ah, crony capitalism.  ...

Uh, this isn't supposed to happen in the brave new world of man-made global warming. It's supposed to be burning in an anthropomorphic hell, not freezing from natural causes.  ...

The revolution will not be televised

Monday, January 31, 2011

at least not until the reruns. Actually, it seems, the revolution will be smart-phoned, as this clip illustrates. Sorry, Gil Scott-Heron, you were right, for all the wrong reasons.  ...
