If even PlanetArk acknowledges the scam in carbon offsets, they must be pretty bad.

Obama’s old plane. BO’s new plane. What happened to the flag?

Wait. So the Star Spangled Banner ‘forces’ him to turn away, hands by side. Political pressure forces him to re-adopt the flag lapel. And as for the flag itself?

He Doth Protest Too Much, Methinks…Peter Kirsanow

According to ABC News Sen. Obama told supporters in Springfield, Missouri today that the GOP’s strategy is to scare voters:

“So what they are going to do is make you scared of me. You know he’s not patriotic enough. He’s got a funny name. You know, he doesn’t look like those other presidents on the dollar bills.”

It’s Sen. Obama who repeatedly refers to these themes. ( Apparently, now both GOP leadership and their bitter, gun-toting constituents are racist).

If the GOP really wanted to scare voters they would simply threaten to replay all of Sen. Obama’s insufferable statements, accumulating rapidly by the hour.

Opening Ceremony

They’re calling it a security breach: a Korean reporter manages to slip inside a full dress rehearsal for the upcoming Olympics’ opening ceremony and record it on video.

My first thought: “Brave fucking journalist.” I mean, what do you think the penalty for that is in China? Crucifixion’s too good for him, sir?

As for the ceremony itself…it’ll want something new, something to distinguish itself from all the others. Something uniquely China. I’m thinking tanks, lots of ’em. And Nicki Webster. I’ll leave the details to your imagination.

Anyone For A Challenge?

Who would like the challenge and exclusive honour (YES! I used a “u” there!) of explaining the Electoral College to me?

I’m currently reading a book called The Right Nation: Why America Is Different by John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge, and it keeps on mentioning the Electoral College, but I’m not completely sure what it is.

So take the ultimate challenge! Explain it to me!

Leftist thinktank (sic) probes Iraq, may hopefully probe itself

The RAND corporation: Current U.S. strategy against the terrorist group al Qaida has not been successful in significantly undermining the group’s capabilities, according to a new RAND Corporation study issued today.

Hmmm. So why this? Al Quaeda forced outta Iraq, limps down to the fertile grounds of Africa.

Meanwhile, and from the same page, this: The most common way that terrorist groups end — 43 percent — was via a transition to the political process. However, the possibility of a political solution is more likely if the group has narrow goals, rather than a broad, sweeping agenda like al Qaida possesses.

Hmm, so then what?

The second most common way that terrorist groups end — 40 percent — was through police and intelligence services either apprehending or killing the key leaders of these groups. Policing is especially effective in dealing with terrorists because police have a permanent presence in cities that enables them to efficiently gather information, (RAND’s study’s lead author, Seth) Jones said.

No shit Sherlock. What do you think the US et al has been doing the past five years? Sheesh.

Laying the boot into climate models.

The results show that models perform poorly, even at a climatic (30-year) scale. Thus local model projections cannot be credible, whereas a common argument that models can perform better at larger spatial scales is unsupported.”

Par Frank observes: “In essence, they found that climate models have no predictive value.”

Sen. Obama: “I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions.
Simple assignment for the press corps: ask the senator to name three specific traditions to which America will return upon his election and why his election will prompt their return. No teleprompters allowed.

“Jet Pack” Unveiled at Air Show

As an update to yesterday’s post on the subject, the jet pack has been demonstrated at an air show.

“That’s the slogan, more or less, of New Zealand’s Martin Jetpack company, which debuted its $100,000 personal flight apparatus Tuesday at the Experimental Aircraft Association AirVenture show in Oshkosh, Wis.

As thousands looked on, inventor Glenn Martin’s 16-year-old son donned a helmet, fastened himself to a prototype and revved the engine, which sounded like a motorcycle. Read the rest of this entry »

Nigel ‘Tiger’ Roberts, a Kiwi, has made history becoming the first person ever to hold all three of the most coveted Scrabble titles, the World, the US and the British, at the same time.


Wonder if he used the word DEMYTHOLOGIZERS’.

Meanwhile, in other scrabbtabulous (not) news, it seems Facebook’s Scrabulous is in its death throes. Well, at least in the US and Canada, where Hasbro owns the rights. This has been going on for a while but has come to a head now. Time will tell if Scrabulous is shut down worldwide (Mattel owns those rights – lawsuit pending).

Ahmadinejad blames West for AIDS. Damn, he went to the same church Obama did.

Jerusalem Post

Iran’s president on Tuesday blamed the US and other “big powers” for nuclear proliferation, AIDS and other global ills and accused them of exploiting the UN and other organizations for their own gain – and the developing world’s loss.

“The big powers are going down,” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told foreign ministers of the Nonaligned Movement meeting in Tehran. “They have come to the end of their power, and the world is on the verge of entering a new, promising era.”

This guy sounds like a perfect Vice Presidential candidate, for Obama.

N.Zed has some Awesome Inventors: Jet Pack, Anyone?

OK, he calls it a “jet pack” but it’s obviously too big for that because it rests on landing gear… and it isn’t a jet. It uses a regular piston engine (Two-stroke, I’m betting) and a pair of ducted fans to produce 600 pounds of thrust. “Personal Flight Vehicle” is more like it (Plus, “PFV” sounds cool), but I’d like to have one… but not until the price is significantly below the $100,000.00 US they are initially asking.

Personal Flight Vehicle

Personal Flight Vehicle

“OSHKOSH, Wis. — To rise off the ground wearing a jetpack is to feel the force of dreams. Very, very noisy dreams.

On Tuesday, an inventor from New Zealand plans to unveil what he calls “the world’s first practical jetpack” at the EAA AirVenture, the gigantic annual air show here. The inventor, Glenn Martin, 48, who has spent 27 years developing the devices, said he hoped to begin selling them next year for $100,000 apiece.”

The only thing I’d rather have is a Skycar.

Melbourne: Super Cool Reservoirs; Super Cool Bushland

My quokka and I went off on another mini-adventure today, and headed down to Melbourne’s Silvan Reservoir to see how full it’s looking. Silvan Reservoir is actually the reservoir that is responsible for cleaning and distributing water to the general public, and therefore rather important in the grand scheme of things.

And here’s how it’s looking:

Don’t you just want to dive in and go for a swim? Perfect!

PETA Wants End to Military Animal Training

HONOLULU, Hawaii (AP) — Animal-rights activists want the United States to stop using animals as subjects to help train its military, calling the medical and trauma exercises cruel and a disservice to the troops.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter Monday to Defense Secretary Robert Gates asking him to replace the use of animals with non-animal methods such as human simulators.

In the letter, PETA said the military inflicts gunshot, burn and chemical wounds on monkeys, pigs and goats for training.”

As far as I’m concerned, if this testing saves the life of just one US serviceman, it’s more than just worth it, it’s mandatory. And, the military ought to be allowed to make these decisions without any interference from the pencil-neck lawyer-politicians in congress and a bunch of lame-brains animal rights activists who think animals have rights when they can’t take responsibilities: There can be no granting of rights without an ability to take responsibility.

Oh, and here’s the sad, pathetic truth about PeTA-phile Pam Anderson.
