A “You Lie” Moment…

Read the article and see if you don’t agree with me when I say “Spoken like a true arrogant asshole.”

Hopkins just comes across as a self-fart-sniffer so enamored of his own ideas that he’s willing to trash other people’s accomplishments to build himself up.  Damn I hate egotistical scientists.

“There has been nothing significant since Apollo” – Dr. John Hopkins

Remember, I’m a firm believer in earned arrogance… arrogance is ok – you just need to earn it is all.  Oh, and crapping on others to get ahead… I frown upon that.  Mightily.

It’s a damned echo chamber – chamber – chamber – chamber…

In the Fourth Assessment Report (AR4), issued in 2007 by the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), scientists wrote that 40 percent of the Amazon rainforest in South America was endangered by global warming.

But that assertion was discredited this week when it emerged that the findings were based on numbers from a study by the World Wildlife Federation that had nothing to do with the issue of global warming — and that was written by a freelance journalist and green activist.

The IPCC report states that “up to 40 percent of the Amazonian forests could react drastically to even a slight reduction in precipitation” — highlighting the threat climate change poses to the Earth. The report goes on to say that “it is more probable that forests will be replaced by ecosystems … such as tropical savannas.”

This is what happens when you let religious zealotry take over, and you leaven it with arrogance.

Luckily Alito and other justices don’t report to this clown or to congress.

President Obama took the extraordinary step in Wednesday’s State of the Union address of slamming the Supreme Court for last week’s decision striking down limits on corporate spending on political advertisements, ruling that the Court had “opened the floodgates” to special interests and foreign corporations in elections.

And it appears that one of the Justices in the audience didn’t agree.

As Obama spoke, Justice Samuel Alito shook his head and appears to mouth the words, “not true.”

Pretty amazing–both for Obama and for Alito.

Obama is the last guy to be harping about special interests with cronyism of his own, czar-studded vision, and backroom dealings.

Yeah, I know I said I wasn’t gonna blog but I could not let this pass.

Isn’t Matthews the high-n-mighty ass who went off about racism?

Only thieves accuse everyone else of being one.

Matthews, who appeared on the cable network shortly after the speech, said of the president:

“I was trying to think about who he was tonight. And uh, it’s interesting. He is post-racial, by all appearances. You know, I forgot he was black tonight for an hour….

“I was watching, I said, ‘wait a minute!’ He’s an African-American guy in front of a bunch of other white people and there he is president of the United States and we’ve completely forgotten that tonight — completely forgotten it!”

Bananas in the Arctic

Apparently Gore has gone bananas over the Arctic ice.  Showing still more untruths (conveniently) he opened his mouth at the Copenhagen Summit.  If he’s going to screw up, I want it to be big and I want it to be public.

Gore, speaking at the Copenhagen climate change summit, stated the latest research showed that the Arctic could be completely ice-free in five years.

Health care…

President Obama, surrounded by Senate Democratic leaders, said today “we are on the precipice” of major health care reform, though “there are still some differences that have to be worked on.”

We’re on the precipice of something all right.

THIS is why they don’t let him talk w/o a teleprompter.

POTUS said he thinks energy efficiency and retrofitting are “sexy.”

“I know the idea may not be very glamorous, although I get pretty excited about it,” Obama said.

Insulation is sexy stuff,” he added. “Here’s what’s sexy about it: saving money.”

I’d like to see Michelle wear a dress made of pink insulation to the next Presidential Ball…

Announcer: And here she is now, in a low cut pink number… and boy she looks HOT.

[murmering off-camera that you can’t refer to the First Lady that way]

Announcer: NO, I mean she looks HOT… what is that, R25?

Been working hard on another graphic.  Hope you enjoy it.  It is my commentary on the sad state of the Nobel Peace Prize.  It died.

Start with the more serious stuff and then we’ll get weirder from there, ok?

I began to picture how ridiculous all this global warming hysteria is, and then thought “What is even weirder than the hysteria?”   Well, nothing is, actually.  So I just thought of what might make me laugh.

Update:  Last night’s tomfoolery resulted in some edits today…

Even WEIRDER…   How can one get a peace prize for doing nothing?  Why, be the O’messaiah, of course!

Obama-PeacePrize

Obama and his patented steely peace-forming thousand-yard stare.

If I understand it right, all I have to do is talk a lot and have good intentions and it doesn’t matter whether I accomplish a gosh-darned thing or not… I’m Nobel material, baby!  Wahooo!  I’m going to go start spending my cool $1 million right now!

Seriously though.  If you are walking down the street and pick up a gum wrapper by the curb and suddenly a marching band starts playing, the mayor drives up in a corvette and hands you the key to the city, and bosoms swell as you are driven through the town for a day of feasting and celebration at your awesomeness… aren’t you going to feel more than a little bit like a total jackass?

If I were him, and I’m not, I wouldn’t feel humbled.  He does because he’s egocentric to a fault.  If it were me, I’d feel embarrassed to have been the target of a Nobel Prize committee that embarrassed itself.  They practically wet their pants in their compulsion to give it to him.

The Nobel Peace Prize is a notoriously difficult award to predict, but yesterday’s decision was clearly a political choice, with three of the past six peace awards going to Bush adversaries.  – Times Online dot co dot UK

The award is also an example of what Nobel scholars call the growing aspirational trend of Nobel committees over the past three decades, by which awards are given not for what has been achieved but in support of the cause being fought for.

Thorbjørn Jagland, the committee chairman, made clear that this year’s prize fell in that category. “If you look at the history of the Peace Prize, we have on many occasions given it to try to enhance what many personalities were trying to do,” he said. “It could be too late to respond three years from now.”

Yup.  Three years from now he might very well prove that one can indeed suck at four years of leadership just as much as the first year of leadership and well, by then, gosh it might just look silly.

One more quote:

“Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Moammar Gadhafi and Vladimir Putin have all praised Barack Obama. When enemies of freedom and democracy praise your president, what are you to think? When you add to this Barack Obama’s many previous years of associations and alliances with people who hate America — Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Father Pfleger, etc. — at what point do you stop denying the obvious and start to connect the dots?”  – Thomas Sowell  (National Review)
