There’s been so much happening this week I haven’t had cause to post anything silly. When I get so much in one of my folders I need to release.You know,like when you drink a lot of water before bedtime then get up first thing in the morning. Crummy analogy, but hey, it’s late.
TWO PEOPLE IN A SMART CAR WERE HOSPITALIZED WHEN THEY HAD A HEAD-ON COLLISION WITH A SQUIRREL. THE SQUIRREL WAS UNINJURED.
I’m seeing a lot of righteous outrage concerning the Daily News cover page and the CNN newscast that pimped it.

This is a good aid for examining your conscience, regardless of whether you confess privately or to a priest.
… that climate change is natural, not man-made.
… that draconian measures to reduce man-made greenhouse gasses will badly damage local and global economies while having no impact whatsoever on pollution, climate, weather, or sea levels.
… that efforts to suppress fossil fuel use in the name of saving the planet are at best misguided and at worse deeply anti-human.
… that no society has ever grown out of poverty without an abundant, affordable, reliable source of energy.
… that at this time, fossil fuels are the best energy source for Third World nations struggling to eliminate poverty.
… that demanding Third World countries stop using fossil fuels means denying them the right to ever have clean, reliable water and labor-saving devices that allow local farmers to produce food in abundance.
… that refusing to allow the 1.2 billion any chance at having electricity for refrigeration and other food preservation processes condemns them to hunger and disease, not due to a lack of food, but to a lack of a consistent, year-round supply of safe, edible food.
… that demanding impoverished peoples continue to heat and cook with smoky open fires does nothing to help the environment, while causing many of them to go blind.
