Earthday - is this the day the sky will fall?

“We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation,” wrote Washington University biologist Barry Commoner for the Earth Day issue of “Environment,” a scientific journal.

“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make,” Ehrlich said.
“The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.”

“It is already too late to avoid mass starvation,” Denis Hayes, said an aide to Nelson, the chief organizer for the first Earth Day.
 “Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: In five years, widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread within 15 years to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa.
“In 30 years, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions . . . the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.”

Buyers remorse

Or maybe voters remorse. Like that horrible hang-over feeling followed by the gut-wrenching realization that you've awaken to find a coyote sleeping next to you. You didn't drink too much, you spent too much and now your options for the future are dramatically changed.

Here is the reality of the spending orgy we've been on. Barack says that we can't get over deficit spending soon, but under his plan, we will never get back to where we were in 05-07, even with fighting two wars, medicare part D, Katrina and assorted other off-budget items.

Those red lines add up, year after year, each becoming part of the national debt.

There is no do-over (except doing health care right instead of doubling the cost) and there is no easy fix. We cannot sustain entitlements, even if we quit spending on all the other stuff (agriculture, transportation, research) and quit fighting wars. Just social security, medicare and medicaid will consume the income in the not distant future.

This is an interesting article on the situation and what we can do to reverse the trend, or "bend the curve" as the Obaminator likes to say.

There is no easy fix to the budget mess

The truth is whatever he wants it to be today

This is Bill Clinton:
"What we learned from Oklahoma City is not that we should gag each other or that we should reduce our passion for the positions we hold - but that the words we use really do matter, because there's this vast echo chamber, and they go across space and they fall on the serious and the delirious alike. They fall on the connected and the unhinged alike," he said.
My recollection is that Oklahoma City was about Clinton's attorney general Janet Reno burned the Branch Davidian compound to the ground resulting in the deaths of 76 men, women and children exactly 2 years earlier. At least that's what the perpetrator (who's name shall never be spoken or written by me) claimed was his motivation. I don't think there was any political movement there at all.

The bomber was hoping to incite revolt against the government. I haven't seen any of the tea party people committing violence - just some democrats who apparently don't feel people with different opinions should be allowed to voice them.

So, if one wants to claim that the perpetrator was unhinged, perhaps there is some common element in OK City and Bill's statement. Everything else is just completely manipulative and pejorative deceit. But what else might we expect from Clinton?

What Bill's statement says to me is: "My government is responsible for the OK City bombing because we should have known by burning down the Waco compound, we would incite some nut job to blow up a government facility."

Or perhaps I am misreading this and he is actually advising the deeply, deeply troubled democrat haters to head a conservative principle and take responsibility for their actions.  Meh, somehow I doubt it.

Way to go Bill. I am perfectly happy holding the bomber and his accomplii accountable for their actions, but if you and Janet want to join them in hell, go right ahead.

The Climate Thought Police Are Watching You!

This is very disturbing, yet somehow not surprising. I really wish this was conspiracy theory and paranoia (along the lines of 9/11 and JFK conspiracies). However, there seems to be something more than what appears on the surface of climate religion, and perhaps this really is it. God save us.

The British lawyer who last week called for introducing international laws through the United Nations which would make it a crime against humanity to question the reality of man-made global warming has close ties with the Club of Rome – the ultra elitist organization which openly bragged of how it invented the climate change scare as a means of manipulating the global population to accept world government.

That was then, this is now

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel " Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the promised land".
75 years ago, Roosevelt said, " Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the promised land".  

Now Obama has stolen your shovel , taxed your asses, raised the price of camels, and mortgaged the promised land. How's that "Change" workin' for you ?
