It is nine BELOW here in Michigan. As in nine degrees below zero. Our lake has been completely frozen over for two months, and I think I only briefly saw actual DIRT three weeks ago, since we've been snow covered since the first week in November.
But, daily I'm assaulted with gas taxes and milage taxes and green energy and hybred cars. The North Pole has record ice, yet the global warming alarmists are holding steadfastly impervious to facts. Global warming peaked years ago, but that doesn't matter.
And now Mr. Hope and Change has picked radical socialist*, Carol Browner, to be our brand new "energy" czar. Oh goodie. Just what we need at this moment. A socialist, global warming hysteric. An hysteric who was on the board of one of those carbon offset companies that sits to profit big at any draconian measures the government may take. No conflict of interest there.
*no, Really. Warning, that link will take you to a page of pseudo-intellectual babble. Now, I'm sure they are all intelligent. It's just that their babble is totally divorced from reality. Case in point:
Strengthening the United Nations is an important step in the creation of this new, democratic world society. Where there is a consensus among the major nations, significant peace-making and peace-keeping initiatives are possible. The UN specialised agencies, like the WHO, and UN organs like UNDP and UNICEF, have demonstrated that the governments and citizens of various nations can work effectively together in pursuit of common international goals.
He hee hee... strengthening the UN ... can work effectively? I know, I know. What a hoot.
Those socialists are FUNNY.
