Growing Disenchantment with Renewable Energy

Bloomberg’s New Energy Finance forecast is predicting that global clean energy investments may double to $395 billion by 2020, led by growth in offshore wind and solar power.[ia] But, the Dutch find that offshore wind is too expensive to subsidize by the government and the Duke of Edinburgh finds that wind farms are useless, even though the British government plans to build more.

Herman Cain MUST stay in the fight!

No doubt you’ve noticed the endless stream of accusers to come against GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain. The process of choosing a nominee for the Republican Party for next year’s presidential elections has reached an all-time low, and should be allowed to take its proper course instead of the inflammatory sexual harassment allegations on a candidate.

Herman Cain has been sexually harassing me for years!

-Satire-

Herman Cain is a serial sexual harasser of the worst kind.  All those women who have come forward complaining about his voracious sexual appetite are only the tip of the iceberg.  Their complaints are nothing compared to what Cain has been doing to me for the past twenty-two years.  He’s been relentlessly harassing me, sexually, and nothing I do can get him to stop.

Durban due diligence

From my vantage point here in South Africa, I could hardly miss the major build-up to the COP-17 United Nations world environment and climate conference, which is being held November 28 to December 9 in Durban, where I went to school and university.

Obama’s Dictatorship is almost complete

This is a critical step over the ‘stuck on stupid’ line to the traitorous and treasonous line by our Senate this week.  They voted for our Military to detain American citizens as long as they want to,  without charges,  representation or trial……just because they are suspected of being a terrorist.  Americans could be gathered up and placed at GITMO for a ‘mystery’ terrorist reason decided by the military front and directed by Obama or any other power hungry President.  It is all kosher and approved by the Senate and President now.  Naturally,  Obama is threatening a veto,  of course that hits the airwaves to soften this traitorous ruling against the American people.

Is Apple’s iPhone Ap Siri Pro-Life?

A story has been circulating about Apple’s new smart phone product called Siri. It is an iPhone application that allows users to ask the phone questions that the phone then searches to answer. Well, apparently one thing that the ap won’t answer is for it to provide directions to the nearest abortion mill.

With the Economy Down, Obama Looks to Help Big Labor Make it Worse

With this week’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing of American Airlines, we again see the results of unions having a hand in destroying American businesses. We also saw GM laid low by union demands costing Americans billions in bailouts. But despite these lessons of the recalcitrance of Big Labor forcing even worse calamities on our jobs climate in this dismal economy, Obama is about to make matters worse by using his powers to regulate to further harm both our business sector and our economy.

Adventure Theater…with Dub and Deb!

Hello out there..…how are you today? It’s good to be back visiting with you again.

You know that Deb and I took a trip…Vicksburg, Gulfport, and Mobile. We’d rented a motor home and set out last Sunday morning about 4:30. We left home and had basically no traffic until we’d gotten to almost Tallahassee.

Tighten the Belts, or Electoral Oblivion Awaits

B.C. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon, like a cliché movie hero, is slowly sinking into fiscal quicksand. In his recently released quarterly fiscal report, he told British Columbians that economic growth has slowed, crown corporation revenues are down and the provincial deficit is exploding. The true culprit – runaway spending – has yet to be addressed, putting the BC Liberals in danger of electoral oblivion in the next election.

Just because…

Whenever somebody asks me what qualifies me for this job I have to admit I have none other than American citizenship and a genuine concern for the number of idiots we employ regularly as our representatives to Congress. The second thing I suggest qualifies me is I ask more questions. I don’t blindly accept statements made by people with an axe to grind or a profit to make. I don’t think I’m the sole expert on any subject. You know; somewhat like yourself. We view this stupidity masquerading as governance and say: hunh?
