Add this to what's fallen the past few days, and
The dark green is flood watch, the lighter flood warning according to the legend at the NWS site. And it's a grand total of 60 degrees; glad the hummingbirds took off a couple of weeks back.
It should be a basic rule: intelligence agency personnel who screw intelligence reports around for political reasons should be fired. And prosecuted. There is no excuse for this kind of garbage.
The Obama administration is still playing delaying games on the IG firings.
Sen. Reid(Slimy Vile Bastard-NV) is still planning to ram a government takeover of your health care through no matter what you think. I have to wonder, does he actually believe in this crap so much he doesn't care it'll get him hung out to dry, or is he being pressured some other way to make him do it? Or is he such a partisan bastard that it's simply "A Democrat President wants a Democrat plan shoved through, so it must be done"?
Folks, you haven't figured it out; they don't care what you think or want. And, on top of that, you're blaming an Obama buttmonkey for part of the problem, and that's just not tolerable.
Asked specifically if the group would be meeting with students and parents at Fenger, Daley demurred. "Oh I don't know about that," he said.
Meanwhile, community leaders are livid.
"President Obama fueled up Air Force One to fly to Copenhagen to try to win the Olympics. Why can't he fuel up a Greyhound bus and come here?" asked Jackson.
"The Mayor and President want parents to get involved in the lives of their children," Jackson said. "We are here, where are they?"
They're putting on a show, Mr. Jackson; and you're not a part of it.
Trying to debunk theories that higher CO2 levels cause warming, he cites studies that show CO2 levels following temperature spikes, prompting him to back other scientists who say that global warming is caused by solar activity.
In taking on lawmakers pushing for a cap-and-trade plan to deal with emissions, Steward tells Whispers that he's worried that the legislation will result in huge and unneeded taxes. Worse, if CO2 levels are cut, he warns, food production will slow because plants grown at higher CO2 levels make larger fruit and vegetables and also use less water. He also said that higher CO2 levels are not harmful to humans. As an example, he said that Earth's atmosphere currently has about 338 parts per million of CO2 and that in Navy subs, the danger level for carbon dioxide isn't reached until the air has 8,000 parts per million of CO2.
Mr. Steward, you have to understand something: huge taxes are one of the main reasons for this crap being pushed. That and using this as a means of controlling people; they don't want you causing problems for their plans, and screw the facts.
“Many members” of Congress suffer from the same disclosure issues as Rep. Charles Rangel (D.N.Y.), one of his allies said Wednesday.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) downplayed the seriousness of allegations against Rangel that he failed to disclose sources of income and pay taxes on some properties, saying that many lawmakers suffer from innocent lapses in judgment when filing mandatory financial disclosure forms.
“I want to tell you, there are many members who, if you go back over all of their records, over all of the years, you’re going to find that there were disclosures that were not made,” Waters said during an appearance on MSNBC Wednesday morning.
Waters, you're disgusting; that's not an excuse, that's an explanation of how crooked the place has become. And every one of you with the same 'issues'(fancy word for 'corruption and tax dodging') should be dealt with.
You know, if you developed a reactor that could power half a state for the next 20 years and only produce a ton of leftovers, these people would still scream like a scalded cat at the very idea of building it. They aren't simply worried about pollution; they don't want us to have plenty of energy. It's like food irradiation; it doesn't matter that it's safe, that it doesn't harm the food, that it could save lives, none of that matters because the scary word 'radiation' is involved. Therefore, it cannot be allowed, no matter the cost.
Dear Leader's people(like CNN) really love using kids, don't they? A comment at Althouse:
CNN was tired of people arguing that it wasn't really in the tank.
"Hello! See this tank?! See us in it?! Glad that's settled."
This is the televised loyalty oath.
Ok, if you were Polanski, would you want people who'd written this jumping up to defend you?
In his 2005 book The Bad Life, he wrote: "I got into the habit of paying for boys," saying his attraction to young male prostitutes was not dimmed despite knowing "the sordid details of this traffic".
"All these rituals of the market for youths, the slave market excited me enormously... the abundance of very attractive and immediately available young boys put me in a state of desire."
Mr Mitterrand, 62, has denied being a paedophile, saying the term "boys" was used loosely.
Yeah, very loosely, I'm sure.
The Virginia State Board of Elections argued in their most recent filing that they have no legal obligation to send out military absentee ballots in a timely manner. Restated, the State of Virginia has argued in a federal court filing that they can legally send out absentee ballots to active duty soldiers the day before an election. Restated again, theDemocratic Chairwoman of the Virginia State Board of Election (appointed by the Democratic National Committee Chair Tim Kaine, in his capacity as Virginia Governor) Jean Cunningham just claimed a legal basis for massively raising the barrier to voting for soldiers at war.
This is remarkable, and the implications of this should be understood. First of all, some counties in both Virginia and New Jersey haven’t sent out absentee ballots yet in violation of their own laws. Whether due to maliciousness or simply being overburdened and understaffed is always up for debate. If Virginia prevails, there would be a legal argument for putting the ballots of active duty military at the back of the bus, as it were.
There are officials in VA and NJ who need to be flogged.
Don't you just love it? Chicago has the worst victim-disarmament laws in the country, AND horrible crime, and yet the fact that the criminals still have guns simply means- to them- that they need MORE laws and MORE disarmament of honest people. Listen, you stupid bastards, stop blaming OBJECTS; if you hadn't raised a couple of generations of kids who see murder as just a means of settling disputes, you wouldn't have the damned problem. But acknowledging that would mean you couldn't blame other people and objects, so you won't.
I think that's enough for one morning.
