US, Allies Tell Taliban About Offensive

Dear God.

is what happens when liberals micromanage the military. Clearly, the hope is that the mere threat of using force will be enough to scare the taliban turds away (not likely). Welcome to the new, touchy feely warfighting brought to you by a kinder, gentler United States.

I hope you all feel safer now.

I mean, REALLY? Does Time magazine REALLY think that we are this stupid? Take note of this wonderful headline: D.C. Snowstorm: How Global Warming Makes Blizzards Worse

You can not make this stuff up my friends. The good folks at Time magazine try to tell us what we are seeing isn't really what we are seeing.

The 2009 U.S. Climate Impacts Report found that large-scale cold-weather storm systems have gradually tracked to the north in the U.S. over the past 50 years. While the frequency of storms in the middle latitudes has decreased as the climate has warmed, the intensity of those storms has increased. That's in part because of global warming - hotter air can hold more moisture, so when a storm gathers it can unleash massive amounts of snow. Colder air, by contrast, is drier; if we were in a truly vicious cold snap, like the one that occurred over much of the East Coast during parts of January, we would be unlikely to see heavy snowfall.

I find it most unusual that the same dimwit that tries to convince us that record cold temps and record snowfall don't mean that the world is cooling; on the contrary, it's supposed to mean that the world is actually warming up..... the DIQ (Dimwit in Question) makes no mention whatsoever of last fall's Climategate scandal. A scandal that continues to grow - despite a media that is dead set on ignoring the story.

All I can say to the DIQ is that if you really believe the ongoing blizzards across the United States are a result of global warming, I have a bridge in San Francisco I'd like to sell you.

Super Bowl XLIV - 2010

I'd be remiss and untrue to my heritage as a member of a multi-generation New Orleans family if I didn't chime in with my observations on this Super Bowl.

People need to understand that the New Orleans football fan is a long-suffering person, one who has tolerated some of the most embarrassing teams in NFL history, including ones led by Archie Manning, father of the Colt's quarterback. New Orleans is a hard place to be an athlete. You can't buy a beer or a meal in NOLA if you play for the Saints, and you're quite the local celebrity. People know how to party, and I suspect it's tough for a professional athlete to maintain top condition given the environment.Let's face it - if you were drafted into the NFL, there would have been a lot worse places to live than New Orleans, am I right?

But something's different this year. I think this game will come down to who wants it more. I keep hearing all the prognostication about how Indianapolis will run roughshod over the hapless, inexperienced Saints. Let's keep this in perspective, because I don't think New Orleans will just lay down. They suffered a string of defeats late in the season, one most notably at the hands of the Cowboys. But they came back with a vengeance, and went toe-to-toe with that old guy and the Vikings. Yeah, it was as close as you can get, but they prevailed.

Truth be told, I just hope it's a good game, and I hope the Saints make the people of New Orleans proud.

Who dat?
