The apostles of the religion of anthropogenic global warming are getting pretty spooked. The Washington Times reports on some private emails they’ve obtained access to, the climate “scientists” (and I use the term very loosely) at the National Academy of Sciences are plotting to try and create a smokescreen to cover their multiple, crippling embarrassments over the past several months.
Wouldn’t it be nice if President Barack Obama would throw the American people a curve-ball and nominate someone for something, and that nominee would be a fine, upstanding person who loves America, the American way of life, our founding principles and our Constitution? Keep dreaming. President Obama’s nominee for judge of the 9th Circus (Circuit) Court of Appeals is nothing but another member of Obama’s “Dream Team” to tear down this great nation.
The Rapid City Journal is reporting that Malcom Chapman won’t be running for re-election on the Rapid City Council. Expect big, big changes on the Rapid City Council starting this year and in the next election. People have had it up to their eyeballs with arrogant waste of taxpayer dollars and elitism. And while the Tea Party movement has definitely been big on the national scene over the last year, Tea Parties are very active in local issues, as well.
It turns out that, when someone is spending his own money alone for routine expenses, he is far more likely to ask the questions he would ask if purchasing any other good or service: “Is there a generic version of that drug?” “Didn’t I take that same test just recently?” “Where can I get the colonoscopy at the best price?” By contrast, the prevalent model of health plans in this country in effect signals individuals they can buy health care on someone else’s credit card.
The axiom “follow the money” is often cited as a method of finding out who and what is behind a particular movement. The environmental extremist movement loves to employ this statement, along with a helping of class envy, to demonize the free market that has produced our comfortable society, but what do we see when it is turned around on them? We find the very greed and avarice they so love to wail about.
