Misguided Likely Poorly Educated Next Generations

That may be my title for this post, but I didn’t coin the problem.

Watch the video here and you will see just how significant this problem truly is.

Then, see if you agree with the title – and particularly the educator in the news video.

Someone is truly messing up the minds of the next generation(s).

It’s long past time to correct that and tell the truth why the United States has always been the place for people to start a new a better life.

If we lose our exceptionalism because of the likes of socialist/marxist wannabees, not only will no one want to come here to improve themselves …. but there may be nowhere else for anyone to go. Anymore.

It’s called – kissing it goodbye.

Is that what you want? Not me. Not anyhone I know. How about you?


San Fran Nan Gets Grilled

Former Speaker of the Hous Nancy Pelosi gets questioned by a reporter about a possible conflict of interest.

Video at the link. This way, you get to see, and hear, just how ….. spin …… takes off.

Personally, I would have preferred the reporter had been more hard hitting about it by specifying more detail – such as the bill number, title, bank name, specific dates and votes. That would have been even better.

Truth About Electric Cars

In simplest terms, we are not ready. And here is why:

Electric cars aren’t necessarily green at all. Electric vehicles require large amounts of electricity – so much that Toronto Hydro chief Anthony Haines says he doesn’t know how he’d get it. “If you connect about 10 per cent of the homes on any given street with an electric car, the electricity system fails,” he said recently.

That is but a snippet from the article, be sure to read the whole thing.

One other thing to keep in mind, COSCTO has been removing charging stations from their parking lots (in CA) recently. They just may have saved themselves some grief.

Sorry, but like Kermit said: It isn’t easy, being green.

Ethical Oil

Yeah, drill, baby, drill. Here, in the U.S. of A.

He’s Full Of It

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) at a town hall event in New Jersey in the middle of this week let it be known that he wants to eliminate the rich.
And how wealthy is this 87 year old?
“… he is worth an estimated $50 million …”

Seventh richest D.C. Lawmaker.

Now, do you honestly think this man is telling you the truth? Think he would give up his wealth willingly? What a hypocrite.

Watt A Load

Or, as I see it – what a load. According to Elisabeth Rosenthal of the NYT, she would have us be lumped in as energy hogs. the likes of which come to mind is Al Gore.

Really Liz? Is this all you have? Shouldn’t you ask Hollywood, Blockbuster, Netflix and everyone else what they think if we all got rid of our high tech toys that feeds them our discretionary funds?

You really want to send those companies down the tubes? I’d love to hear their reaction to your sanctimonious article.

Green, huh? But not the green of money.

Tell me, Liz. How much energy does your house waste while you are at work?
Do you have digital thermostat that scales back consumption while you are not there? I do. Do you turn lights off in rooms you aren’t in? I do. Do you run your dishwasher and/or laundry in the evening? I do.

Odds are, my monthly utility bill is far less than yours.

Now, with all those figures you put forth about how many KWhours are consumed by just ONE electrical appliance in the home across the country, why don’t you do the same for just lighting? Or, just air conditioning? Or, just dishwashers? Or, just clothes washers/dryers? You know, something with motors? I’d bet you will pale when you see those numbers.

The Rights of Man

Most excellent.

Orbitz Standing Tall

So much for (cough) Media Matters (does it really?) trying to coerce advertisers away from Fox News Channel.

Mediaite tells us what Orbitz told MM. Remember that name. They matter.

I’ll remember this when I make travel plans.

Government Motors Spends Our Money

Bailed out. How about – thrown out? For this:

General Motors Co. and Chrysler Group LLC, which each received government-funded bailouts, may award some managers bonuses of as much as 50 percent of their salary, said four people familiar with the plans.

GM plans to pay bonuses to most managers equal to 15 percent to 20 percent of their annual salary and as high as 50 percent to less than 1 percent of its 26,000 U.S. salaried employees, said one of the people, who asked not to be named revealing internal plans. Bonuses for Chrysler’s 10,755 salaried workers will average about $10,000, with a small group getting as much as half of their salary, one of the people said.

Nothing’s changed. Same old, same old.

TSA Outrageousness

I received the following from a friend this evening.

If you fly for business or pleasure, you should listen to this interview.
This is a link to the Jim Bohannon Radio Show from last night (12/6/2010)….just advance the arrow all the way over to 1:20:00 and hear Karen Feld’s horror story of dealing with the TSA. This happened in June 2010 at the Baltimore-Washington Airport.


UPDATE: And recently, this woman was arrested after refusing the “enhanced pat down.”
A question. At what point is a law a bad law? And when will the American public demand their rights to bodily privacy?
