xkcd nails the “What if…?” scenario.
Can’t we all just get along?
I’m just sayin’…
In November of 2007, Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm issued an executive order establishing the Michigan Climate Action Council (MCAC). Over the course of the next 16 months, the MCAC, a collection of stakeholders from across the spectrum, developed a 125-page document, the Michigan Climate Action Council Climate Action Plan [.pdf] which contains 53 recommendations for reducing the impacts of climate change.
Yesterday, during the Clean Energy Now! rally on the lawn of the Michigan Capitol, we learned via Twitter that Governor Granholm had signed a second executive order, EXECUTIVE DIRECTIVE No. 2009-4, that implements several of the MCAC’s recommendations, all aimed at achieving the MCAC’s stated goal of delivering a 20% reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases by 2020 and an 80% reduction by 2050.…
I’ve been giving a LOT of thought to this whole Birthers thing. I’ve done the research. I’ve read the blogs. I’ve listened to Dobbs. And now, at long last, I’ve reached a conclusion. It’s not one that will be popular with many progressive liberals and other Obama supporters but when the details of the diabolical plot are revealed, I think you’ll be forced to agree with me:
Barack Hussein Obama is NOT an American citizen.
It’s no accident that Barack Hussein Obama became the President of the United States of America. Nosiree, this was a plan hatched almost forty-nine years ago by a quiet little white Kansas-bred girl named Stanley Ann Dunham (known to friends and family as “Anna”.)
The details about why Ms.…
Mr Sidorkin had complained of extreme pain in his chest and had been coughing up blood. Doctors were convinced he had cancer.
“We were 100 per cent sure,” said Vladimir Kamashev, a surgeon in Izhevsk in the Urals. “We did X-rays and found what looked exactly like a tumour.
“I had seen hundreds before, so we decided on surgery.”
Before removing part of the man’s lung, the surgeon investigated the tissue.
“I thought I was hallucinating,” said Mr Kamashev. “I asked my assistant to have a look: ‘Come and see this – we’ve got a fir tree here’. He nodded in shock.…
I can’t believe it. Mr. “GET OFF MY PHOOOO-OOOONE!!!” himself had a moment of lucidity, sanity and understanding on his television show yesterday. Who is this impostor and what have you done with Glenn Beck?!
The piece was about Henry Louis Gates. Beck had on David Horowitz who basically blamed the entire episode on Gates himself. Beck actually stood up for Gates and then asked for and received the perspectives of two African American staff members.
Via Media Matters:
Partial transcript of Beck’s quite-reasonable comments:
I think the guy got off a plane, he was comin’ from China, he was tired, he was grumpy, etc.…
The conservative news outlet, Newsmax, has a “report” out today with the following headline:
Up to 100 million people would lose their current healthcare plan within the next three years if Congress passes the “public option” health bill now making its way through Congress, policy experts tell Newsmax.
Defections on that scale would mean the death of the health-insurance sector within five years, a leading GOP congressman says.
First, it’s important to note what Newsmax Media is. From teh WikiGods:
Christopher W. Ruddy started Newsmax.com on September 16, 1998, supported by a group of conservative investors, including the family of the late Central Intelligence Agency Director William J.…
Mrs. E and I have been organic gardening together for about seven years and recently moved to a new home with an acre of land about three years ago. We now have a very nice garden, 100% organic, lush and productive. We preserve an amazing amount of food from it and, every week of the year, we eat at least two meals, often more, that are mainly from our garden.
Below are some of the tricks and techniques we’ve learned over the years to combat pests organically. Perhaps you’ll find something useful in them.
We have about 1300 square feet of gardening space.…
You’ll love this. Yesterday Glenn Beck interviewed Michael Scheuer, the former head of the Osama bin Laden unit under Clinton and Bush II. He’s so distraught over the final domino tumbling (60 Democratic Senators in Congress, Yippee!!!) that he wishes the terrorists would attack the USA.
“The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States.”
Think for a minute if someone from the liberal side of the aisle said something like that. What words would be used to describe them?
