And Once Again...


It's fascinating to watch their progress online. (The URLs are too complex to reproduce here, but Google "Argo Buoy Movement" or "Argo Float Animation," and you will be directed to the links.)

When they were first deployed in 2003, the Argos were hailed for their ability to collect information on ocean conditions more precisely, at more places and greater depths and in more conditions than ever before.

No longer would scientists have to rely on measurements mostly at the surface from older scientific buoys or inconsistent shipboard monitors.

So why are some scientists now beginning to question the buoys' findings? Because in five years the little blighters have failed to detect any global warming. They are not reinforcing the scientific orthodoxy of the day, namely that man is causing the planet to warm dangerously. They are not proving the predetermined conclusions of their human masters. Therefore they, and not their masters' hypotheses, must be wrong.

In fact, "there has been a very slight cooling," according to a U.S. National Public Radio (NPR) interview with Josh Willis at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a scientist who keeps close watch on the Argo findings.

Willis insisted the temperature drop was "not anything really significant." And I trust he's right. But can anyone imagine NASA or the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) or the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change -- the UN's climate experts -- shrugging off even a "very slight" warming.

Anyone who still tries to say that Global Warming is fact needs to be shunned as being too stupid to be part of civilization. IT'S BULLSHIT, PEOPLE!!!!!

In case you missed it

Nancy Pelosi is still a lying bitch who doesn't deserve to be a file clerk, much less a member of Congress.

The fact that San Fransicko keeps re-electing this brainless, useless, lying, spineless, moral-less piece of shit is reason enough for me to wall that city off from America and let them all rot to death in their own filth.

Yet Another IVAW traitor exposed as a fraud

They just keep popping up.

The man who called himself Rick Duncan - purportedly a former Marine captain and 1997 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy - is in fact 31-year-old Richard Glen Strandlof, a former mental patient who never served in the military and falsely claimed that he was in the Pentagon during the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, according to David Walsh of the Colorado Veterans Alliance (CVA), which Duncan founded.

Walsh, who joined the board of CVA at Duncan’s request last year, said his colleagues in the organization grew suspicious of Duncan after discovering “significant inconsistencies” in his personal story.

Damn near every IVAW hero is either a fake, a fraud, a liar, a cheat, or a back-stabbing piece of shit who doesn't deserve to wear the uniform. Jimmy Massey, Jesse McBeth, "Rick Duncan", etc. etc. etc. Just how many liars, frauds and fakes does one organization have to have exposed before we can pull the plug on it?

Mt. Rainier from the airplane. As a bonus, you can see Mt. Saint Helens in the back right. A little over 900KB if you want to save it.

The Space Needle and Elliot bay. 189KB if you want to save it.

The Ragin' Mrs. has been tearing the house apart, quite literally. My office has no walls, no ceiling and no flooring, but new insulation. The closet is waiting for it's next coat of plaster, which will happen when I'm finally home. And the Ragin' Dad will be visiting next week. In short, I'm tapped out.

Gah. One day, I'll get to rest. One day......

By the way, while I was in Seattle I was able to have dinner with my man Phil from Random Nuclear Strikes. Hi Phil! I much enjoyed it! Next time I'll try to get there when you have some time off!

Hell Period Continues

So, after being gone for three weeks, with the odd day home here or there, I got to spend two days at home while I was sick, then head back to work, and tomorrow I head off to Minneapolis. I get back Sunday night.

Yay me.

I'd love to have a weekend at home. When I'm healthy.

Hillary/Obama support the Taliban

First, Hillary & Obama pulled a Haditha smear, as Gateway Pundit documents : HILLARY & OBAMA Blame US Soldiers For Taliban Slaughter
The Apologist Administration was eager to blame US troops first after a slaughter of innocent civilians in Afghanistan.
It was later discovered the civilians were actually slaughtered by the Taliban and that the Taliban reported the incident to the Western press.
This is consistent with Barack Hussein Obama's history of military smears:
“We’ve got to get the job done there and that requires us to have enough troops so that we’re not just air-raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous pressure over there." -- Barack Hussein Obama Jr.(D)

At a fancy '05 Manhattan fundraiser, Obama told the approving crowd that the Bush administration was using soldiers in Iraq as "cannon fodder."

“You know, I’ve heard from an Army captain who was the head of a rifle platoon — supposed to have 39 men in a rifle platoon. Ended up being sent to Afghanistan with 24 because 15 of those soldiers had been sent to Iraq. And as a consequence, they didn’t have enough ammunition, they didn’t have enough humvees. They were actually capturing Taliban weapons, because it was easier to get Taliban weapons than it was for them to get properly equipped by our current commander in chief.” -- Barack Hussein Obama

..."oftentimes our women servicemembers are more prone to post-traumatic stress disorder partly because they — there's a sad, but real, problem of sexual harassment and sexual abuse for women veterans, and that makes them much more prone, then, to have post-traumatic stress disorder." -- Barack Hussein Obama Jr.(D)

"If you talk to commanders on the ground there, they'll tell you, 'Instead of having another platoon, I'd rather have a couple of agricultural specialists." -- Barack Hussein Obama Jr.(D) who hasn't been "on the ground there" in Afghanistan
Sweetness & Light notes : Taliban Killed Civilians, Not US
...evidence now shows that many of those civilian casualties appear to have been killed by Taliban grenades — after the airstrike — in a blatant effort to drive up the number of dead and stir public resentment of U.S. military power, the source said...
Sweetness & Light reminds us : Taliban Poison 89 (More) Afghan Girls
The AP is so careful to say that this third report is also ‘alleged.’

They don’t want to impugn their allies needlessly.
With Pakistan & Afghanistan on the brink, Ralph Peters details how Obama is : FALLING FOR TALIBAN TRICKS
Terror's super-weapon is the lie.

Lying about civilian casualties is the one sure way to impede or even halt US (or Israeli) operations, to force such tight restrictions on our troops that they can't win

It's been so successful that our enemies long ago transitioned to the next phase: creating civilian casualties and blaming us.

Few journalists bother to investigate. If the Taliban, al Qaeda, Hezbollah or Hamas says it, it must be so. In Media Wonderland, terrorists never lie. Now every successful strike on a Taliban target generates the instant claim that the dead were all civilians.

This week, Taliban terrorists publicly beheaded three civilians in Afghanistan's Farah province, then herded women and children into compounds from which they fought government forces and US advisers.

With a vicious ground battle under way, the Talibs knew attack aircraft would appear. According to military sources, they set up the target. And, just in case, they slaughtered those women and children with grenades before any aircraft appeared. The entire massacre was a planned media event.

Before the smoke cleared, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was apologizing...

A few hours later, President Obama stepped up to his mike and read a prewritten statement about his meeting with Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai and Pakistan's bookie-in-chief, President Asif Ali Zardari.

No criticism of Karzai for consistently playing the populist card and backing Taliban claims. No criticism of Zardari for cowering while the Taliban overruns his country and its huge military twiddles its thumbs, dreaming of a war with India.

No, our president announced that he's going to bring civilian resources to bear now, sending $1.5 billion a year to Pakistan. Yet self-impoverished Pakistan has more than 170 million angry Muslims.

So why are we sending 21,000 additional Americans into harms way?

Quote of the Day

So this poor guy is getting pilloried for writing the quote below.....

"Despite how the conflict has been portrayed by our glorious media, if you gave any U.S. soldier a gun with two bullets in it, and he found himself in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Osama bin Laden, there's a good chance that Nancy Pelosi would get shot twice, and Harry Reid and bin Laden would be strangled to death."

Mr. Feherty, do not apologize for simply stating the truth. Although there's a good chance that bin Laden would be beaten to death with the butt of the gun, Reid would still be strangled.

Found at Legion's Fate.

Feeling better

The fever broke sometime last night. I've still got a stuffy head, but it's not as bad as yesterday. Meaning that I can actually breathe through my nose right now. I've got to head back to work tomorrow, so today is my last day to get rested and ready. Friday I head off once again.

I'm getting a little tired of all the traveling.

I'm back

And I'm sick as a dog. I think I would have been OK except for the two flights that I took, with the changes in pressure, screwing with my sinuses.

So I'm a bit miserable right now. And pissed off. I was running a fever last night, and still have the tail end of it screwing with me now. My ears and nose are stuffed up. I am not a happy camper right now.

Gah. And I have to head back out on Friday. This really is my hell period.
