Twist Factor.

Update:  Good God, my satellite receiver is down.  I may actually be reduced to having a conversation with Cruel Wife rather than catch re-runs and scan for bad SyFy movies.  What did I do to deserve this cruel fate?  It was so healthy and working so well this morning and then… pfffft… gone.   Just… gone.

Soylent suggested a mobius bacon graphic a while back.  Or I suggested it after reading something of his.  Somehow I got it in my head to do a mobius bacon graphic.

It was not easy to do in photoshop and I got tired of trying to model it in Blender 3D and last night I got out the charcoal and pencils and went to work.  Then I digitized that and now my graphics editor (one of them) is probably going to savage it and tell me how to make it fit for consumption, which is ok.  That’s what I want, actually.

So until that savage constructive criticism comes back, I’ll putter around on another thing I’ve put pencil to paper on.  That is a “Dr. Lemur’s Pastries for Your Spleen” sketch.  I want to bring that in to photoshop and colorize it a bit or turn it into a true victorian-era Dr. Lemur graphic.  It’s based on a real barn from near where I grew up – “For Your Liver, Dr. Pierce’s Pleasant Pellets“.  The guy who bought that property knew it was a “Historial Landmark” when he bought it, but now wants to actually do something with it (read: demolish) now that it is too expensive to keep it from falling down (it makes sense in an irony-sort-of-way) – but, since it’s “historical” it’s no longer his to do with as he pleases even though he owns it.  Please see the next paragraph regarding enslavement coming your way, soon.

I’m looking this up to see if it’s true or not – NRA speaks at the UN as Democrats Continue to Seek Your Enslavement.  That’s my take on it anyway.

Here’s a real good reason why I’m distrustful of authority in the first place.  Racing to get your bleeding in-labor wife to the hospital that knows her history and what to do for her means you are a criminal with no remorse and should be treated with less respect than a pedophile or rapist, apparently.  Oh, Canada…

But this crap could happen here in the US, too.

This speaks volumes all by itself.  You want proof that the media is in Obama’s pocket?  How about the fact that not one critical issue was brought up in the news article…?

Obama to seal US-UN relationship

By Harvey Morris at the United Nations

Her remarks were the latest by the Obama administration to emphasize a shift from the strategy of the previous Bush administration, sometimes criticized by its UN partners for seeking to use the world body principally to endorse its own unilateral policies. The US currently holds the month-long rotating presidency of the Security Council.

“The council has a very important role to play in preventing the spread and use of nuclear weapons, and it’s the world’s principal body for dealing with global security cooperation,” Susan Rice, US envoy to the UN, said last week.

Barack Obama will cement the new co-operative relationship between the US and the United Nations this month when he becomes the first American president to chair its 15-member Security Council.

The topic for the summit-level session of the council on September 24 is nuclear non-proliferation and nuclear disarmament – one of several global challenges that the US now wants to see addressed at a multinational level.

Well, y’all wanted change.  Choke on it.

The man has proved with his choice of advisors that he can’t manage his way out of a paper bag, so this promises to be really damned scary.

As much as I would rather chew off a limb than be in the same room with Camille Paglia, she does have a head on her shoulders – a smart one, too – and is actually closer to what I’d call a moderate than 95% of the so-called moderates (all liberals think they are moderate).  I’m joking about the limb-chewing and same room stuff.

She had some things to say about Obama, the Democrats, and the state of the Liberal Machine.  All undermined by Obama, the Democrats, and the Liberal Machine.

By foolishly trying to reduce all objections to healthcare reform to the malevolence of obstructionist Republicans, Democrats have managed to destroy the national coalition that elected Obama and that is unlikely to be repaired. If Obama fails to win reelection, let the blame be first laid at the door of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who at a pivotal point threw gasoline on the flames by comparing angry American citizens to Nazis.

Who is naive enough to believe that Obama’s plan would be deficit-neutral?

One would think that the total number would be about two people, both of whom huff paint thinner fumes to get high.  But the polls and surveys argue differently.

Why did it take so long for Democrats to realize that this year’s tea party and town hall uprisings were a genuine barometer of widespread public discontent and not simply a staged scenario by kooks and conspirators? First of all, too many political analysts still think that network and cable TV chat shows are the central forums of national debate. But the truly transformative political energy is coming from talk radio and the Web — both of which Democrat-sponsored proposals have threatened to stifle, in defiance of freedom of speech guarantees in the Bill of Rights.

Why has the Democratic Party become so arrogantly detached from ordinary Americans? Though they claim to speak for the poor and dispossessed, Democrats have increasingly become the party of an upper-middle-class professional elite, top-heavy with journalists, academics and lawyers

Take-home points:  Democratic Party is not interested in the little people.  The Democratic Party is contemptuous of dissent and this is akin to cutting their own throats.  The Democratic Party has taken a vacation from reality.  Obama’s team is in way over their heads and is amateurish and naive on many fronts, thinking that “looking good” is a one-for-one substitute for competence and professional work.

Someone had the balls to come out and utter something this stupidly hypocritical in regards to the proper elimination of Van Jones.

“The ability of the conservative media machine to generate a controversy for this White House is amazing.” –MSNBC’s Chuck Todd

The whole idea of “czars” is asinine.  If the person is qualified to have the ear of the president, they ought to be nominated for a position and vetted just like any other candidate.

The vacuum in Tanenhaus’ head must be painful…

“The primary dynamic of American politics, normally described as a continual friction between the two major parties, is equally in our time a competition between the liberal idea of consensus and the conservative idea of orthodoxy. We see it in the Democratic Party’s recent history of choosing centrist, explicitly nonideological presidential candidates (Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, Clinton, Obama), as contrasted with the Republicans’ preference for ideologically committed ones (Goldwater, Reagan, George W. Bush).” –Sam Tanenhaus, editor of The New York Times’ Book Review and Week in Review sections, in his new book, “The Death of Conservatism”

A judge that hasn’t long to serve before being removed.  He has questioned divinity.

A California judge today tentatively scheduled a trial for Jan. 26, 2010, for a case that challenges Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president based on questions over his qualifications under the requirements of the U.S. Constitution.

If the case actually goes to arguments before U.S. District Judge DavidCarter…

Good news:  The ObaMessiah did not speak in my daughter’s school today.

Plague-Boy™ Suit

A co-worker of mine recently showed up with multiple diseases in his system.  His work ethic was admirable even if he was oozing out orifices and potentially a chicken-pox carrier.

That said, everything he touched was crawling with death.

Thus, a new product was born.

The co-worker in question thought it needed an “exremental overpressure valve, at 30psi”.  Great thought, just so it doesn’t become some nasty pressure-vessel about to explode, but it’s putting in a place where containment can be breached.  Nix that.

Way long time ago, VP Cheney’s daughter’s lesbian status was big news and I said “WHO THE HELL CARES?”

Now there’s dirt on Biden’s daughter:

Video Offered for Sale Purports to Show Biden’s Daughter Snorting Cocaine

And I’ll say it again… WHO CARES?  So what?  Leave her alone.  She has zero to do with the offices of VP and President.

She may have been snorting Sweet-N-Low for all you know.   Or like a classmate did years ago in high school – snorted ground-up menstrual-cramp pills in english class.

The UN president has stated that the USA is… well, just read it:

The White House objected Thursday to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s description of the United States as a “deadbeat” donor to the world body.

We have given more money to more people all around the world for more years than any other nation or group of nations, and this little weasel calls us deadbeats? Remember the children’s story – the Little Red Chicken?

Ban Ki-Moon backpedaled a bit:

… [the US] generously supports the work of the U.N., both in assessed and voluntary contributions.

Here’s the problem though.  Your real thoughts are the ones you voice first.  Rarely do we mis-speak.  “Mis-speak” is a great excuse for those who can’t control their tongue.

The UN (and the world at large) is great at holding out their hands and somehow reconciling that with barely concealed contempt for the US.

Speaking of the world hating the US, here’s a wonderful sentiment on the Wired Blog from an article titled “U.S. Jet Shoots Down Iranian Drone Over Iraq“.

gimpydwarf, I have been to Texas, where I have seen the headless corpses of men murdered because they were Black.
I have been to Wyoming and seen the crucified corpse of a man murdered because he was homosexual.
I have been to Iraq where I have seen the raped, murdered and incinerated corpse of a 14 year old girl raped, murdered and incinerated by a glorious US soldier (Private Green).
Where ever Americans go, murder is the result, and appears to be the only thing Americans are good at.

Hopefully Pakistan shoots down some of those ass—- americans drones in Pakistan.

Thank God for the UN – if it weren’t for the UN to save our butts, we’d be in trouble.

Look how they have taken the lead by proving (by fiat, no less) that Globular Worming is real.

Another fine Netizen has seen the light, the (soft) spoken wisdom of AlGore, the one who paved the way for the Obamessiah.   Radioactive Liberty helps paint the grim picture in the care and attention that it deserves.  And he did it in June of this year.  A true peripheral visionary.

More proof that globular worming is real… the temperature of the snow in New Orleans is warmer than it has been in recorded history.  Well, ok, it’s only been four years since the last snow in NO.

Snow in New Orleans is a rarity. The last time it snowed was Christmas 2004; before that, the last snow recorded was in 1989, according to Jim Vasilj, a forecaster with the National Weather Service. Since 1850, snow had fallen in “measurable amounts” rather than traces in the city just 17 times, Vasilj said. Of the 17, today’s snowfall was the earliest in the season recorded.

As much as 6 inches had piled up in Livingston Parish as of 10 a.m., Vasilj said. Similar amounts were reported in Bogalusa and St. Helena Parish, while in Mandeville, between 2 and 3 inches had accumulated, according to Vasilj.

Just more evidence nailing the coffin shut in arguing for the harsh realities of globular worming.

Great new news on the damage estimate. The tab will run to 45 Trillion dollars. For the record, that is:

$45,000,000,000,000 (28.86 Trillion Euros)

Luckily, it is rumored that the UN already backs this assessment but is insisting that the US pay no more than 83% of the tab. This is a 7% reduction from anything else the US has chipped in for in the past. Great news folks! It means your taxes will only go up by 37% compounded quarterly.

I’m going to post this link from yesterday again, just because it’s valid. Kudos to my boss who passed it on to me.

Maybe NASA should put up another satellite and cherry pick some more data to prove that it is bad?

Wow, if global warming doesn’t kill us (even though the SLC swears we deserve it), then it looks like water will kill us by dint of it’s absence. Let’s put this in a cynical kind of perspective: We are all going to die. Now, doesn’t that help keep you from hyperventilating until you barf on your Gucci loafers?

And now, on to the article that should give us all hope. It’s just an excerpt, and will take you just to the point of violent nausea but will not push you over the edge. Maybe.

$45 trillion needed to combat warming

TOKYO – The world needs to invest $45 trillion in energy in coming decades, build some 1,400 nuclear power plants and vastly expand wind power in order to halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, according to an energy study released Friday. The report by the Paris-based International Energy Agency envisions a “energy revolution” that would greatly reduce the world’s dependence on fossil fuels while maintaining steady economic growth. “Meeting this target of 50 percent cut in emissions represents a formidable challenge, and we would require immediate policy action and technological transition on an unprecedented scale,” IEA Executive Director Nobuo Tanaka said. A U.N.-network of scientists concluded last year that emissions have to be cut by at least half by 2050 to avoid an increase in world temperatures of between 3.6 and 4.2 degrees above pre-18th century levels. Scientists say temperature increases beyond that could trigger devastating effects, such as widespread loss of species, famines and droughts, and swamping of heavily populated coastal areas by rising oceans. Environment ministers from the Group of Eight industrialized countries and Russia backed the 50 percent target in a meeting in Japan last month and called for it to be officially endorsed at the G-8 summit in July. The IEA report mapped out two main scenarios: one in which emissions are reduced to 2005 levels by 2050, and a second that would bring them to half of 2005 levels by mid-century. The scenario for deeper cuts would require massive investment in energy technology development and deployment, a wide-ranging campaign to dramatically increase energy efficiency, and a wholesale shift to renewable sources of energy. Assuming an average 3.3 percent global economic growth over the 2010-2050 period, governments and the private sector would have to make additional investments of $45 trillion in energy, or 1.1 percent of the world’s gross domestic product, the report said. That would be an investment more than three times the current size of the entire U.S. economy.
