Of Polar bears, polemics and….warming?


Dr. Susan Crockford, Zoologist, is another one of the fascinating people I have had the pleasure of interacting with a bit since Going Green was published. She emailed me this afternoon to alert me to her excellent review of Dr. Ian Stirling’s new book. Stirling is called the “grandaddy” of  polar bear reasearch. But I post her review of the book for another reason. Stirling’s work is typical of the recent decimation of the Scientific Method that is regularly taking place now in all fields of science due to climate alarmism. Please read the review by clicking here. It is an excellent piece and worth reading in its entirety.

Moonshine Over Georgia Update

I am getting quite a few complaints that readers don’t like me doing one chapter at a time. Also, the delay between chapters is causing problems for some. They have trouble remembering what they read in say chapter 1 that might have been posted 4 or more weeks prior.

Not sure there is a perfect answer because writing a book takes time. It is usually going to be a minimum of 3 days between chapters and often times more.

Also, I am getting in too big a hurry. I am sometimes rushing to get a chapter out there for you and I am not adequately editing it.

Any suggestions? For now, I am going to hold back chapter 10 which is already completed and chapter 11 which I may finish tonight or tommorow night. I will wait and put out 10-12 at the same time.

Democrats, Republicans and Obamacare

In an earlier post today, I stated that the Democrat party must be punished severely at the ballot box this November for foisting this fraud that is Obamacare upon us. I stand by that, but allow me to elaborate.

As I said in my original post this morning, it is not that I am under the delusion that all Republicans are good guys. That is not the point at all. The point is, that this. Obamacare, and for that matter the liberal court that upheld this travesty, is SOLELY AND COMPLETELY the fault of and the responsibility of the Democrat party. Democrats going back to Teddy Kennedy, going all the way back to 1961 for that matter, have been pushing socialized medicine as a means of control over the populace for decades. They OWN this issue. They authored the bill, every word of it, and NO Republican voted for it.

So the reason that Democrats must be punished is not because I think all Republicans are good guys. But it is so that the party which has championed this power grab for 50 years, is held to account. A message must be sent by voters, not just to the Democrat party, but to ALL politicians in all parties and for generations to come.

Roberts (I will never use the title Chief Justice Roberts ever again), gave politicians supreme authority over our lives. The ballot box is our last line of defense. If the Democrats pay a scorched earth sized price for attempting to grab this much power and over 1 Trillion dollars of our money, then the Repbulicans too will see that. All politicians will think, “Wow, despite what SCOTUS said, we don’t ever, ever want to go there again. It is too politically devastating.”

They will then hear the American People yell loudly…”Don’t Tread On Me!”

Don’t blame me that the Democrats were stupid enough to pass this colossus. Blame them. They made their bed. And again, this was not a mistake. It was a premeditated strategy for control that has been brewing for 50 years.

Time to pay the price for all those years of plotting and planning to rob the American people. This has NOTHING to do with providing health care. The bill will not even do that. It has to do with control. Period.

Letter to EPA Director Lisa Jackson

I am proud that I was able to make a small contribution to a recent letter written by The Cornwall Alliance to EPA Director Lisa Jackson. In the letter, we state, without any ambiguity, our position on the current state of Climate Change and Environmental/Energy Policy but most significantly we stand opposed to Director Jacksons Endangerment Finding against CO2. I am proud to have been included in this effort and I am proud to be one of the 109signers of this document.

Chapter 8: The Meeting Coming Tommorow

I should finish Chapter 8 of Moonshine Over Georgia tommorow and post it for you on both this site and the old blog. I will gradually taper off the old blog but for now will post both places.

I might have finished today but I played softball all day for a charity event. This was to raise money for the family who had their teens tragically injured in a recent Calvert City car accident.

I was very pleasantly surprised at our little team. My son Nathan and his friend Ryan threw together a team at the last minute. Rosebower people that played were Ryan Samsil (thank goodness we had him), Nathan, Denton, Ryan, Chris, and Mike Wooley. We made it through the day uninjured and with our pride quite in tact.
