Burying the Gas of Life

Of all the anti-carbon policies supposedly improving our climate, carbon capture and burial is probably the worst.

Freedom of Speech As Long As You Agree With Me

“Die Gedanken sind frei.” “Thoughts are Free,” famous German song about freedom of thought, 1810-1820, author unknown

Shortly after I arrived in the U.S., I realized that the freedom of speech Americans thought they had, was, let’s just say, with no intention of offending anyone, a figment of their naïve imagination.

October 16th: rare opportunity to win one for we the people

Dear Patriots. Though apprehensive upon hearing Obama tell Joe the Plumber that he wanted to spread the wealth around, I understand America’s extremely emotional response to electing its first black president. White America naively thought, finally, we can never be called a racist nation again. My 100 year old black grandmother wept. Never in her wildest dreams could she imagine a colored man sitting in the president’s chair in the Oval Office.

Believing His Own BS

Oh, this is embarrassing! Our wimp of a President trying to fit into the hat of the Commander-in-Chief.  Geez!  He could at least take the “Kick Me” sign off his back.

NRDC in damage control mode on the social cost of carbon

The Syrian Scenario

Arabs are particularly fond of dates with historical or religious significance. Recall the Yom Kippur War in 1973, the fourth Arab-Israeli war led by a coalition of Egypt and Syria. Like earlier wars, it ended in defeat for the Arabs.

Keynes, Orwell, and Multi-Culturalism

I spent an afternoon the other day strolling through the Valley View Shopping Center in Dallas. Its once fine stores are slowly closing one by one. In their place, quaint Mexican vendors with amateurishly painted signs and sparse stores now hawk their wares as they would in a seedy swap meet.

The Sin of Sodom

Much has been made of Sodom’s obsession with sex and homosexuality and their obsession with immediate self-gratification at any cost.  But that was not “the sin of Sodom’.  It was only an indicator of the depth of depravity that the area had fallen into.  It was the nadir and death knell of a formerly advanced civilization.

German Homeschool Family Raided by Police, Children Seized

PURCELLVILLE, Va., —At 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 29, 2013, in what has been called a “brutal and vicious act,” a team of 20 social workers, police officers, and special agents stormed a homeschooling family’s residence near Darmstadt, Germany, forcibly removing all four of the family’s children (ages 7-14). The sole grounds for removal were that the parents, Dirk and Petra Wunderlich, continued to homeschool their children in defiance of a German ban on home education.

IPCC Under Pressure

U.S. and European Union envoys are seeking more clarity from the United Nations on a slowdown in global warming that climate skeptics have cited as a reason not to “panic” about environmental changes, leaked documents show. They’re requesting that more details on the so-called “hiatus” be included in a key document set to be debated at a UN conference next month that will summarize the latest scientific conclusions on climate change. “The recent slowing of the temperature trend is currently a key issue, yet it has not been adequately addressed in the SPM,” the EU said, according to an official paper that includes all governmental comments on the draft report. The U.S. comment suggested “adding information on recent hiatus in global mean air temperature trend.”—Alex Morales, Bloomberg, 30 August 2013

Resolving issues in our world with a heart change

There are many issues in our world ranging from high unemployment rates, poverty, crime, corruption and failing cities.  It’s happening all around the world even in our communities.
