Quote of the day

Because global warming is too important to worry about something trivial, like science:

There is not, now, much value in arguing about the science of climate change. Even if it’s wrong, enough people now believe it that it may as well be right.

The mind boggles….

When even Sweden cuts taxes

September 20, 2009

The former poster-nation for social democracy, Sweden, has just slashed taxes in order to spur economic growth.

You think the White House and the congressional Democrats might take a clue from this that perhaps –just maybe– they should rethink their economic policies?

Nah. Me neither.


If the name fits

According to the National Affairs Adviser to Palestinian Authority President (and Holocaust denier) Mahmoud Abbas, the Jews are trafficking in organs harvested from Palestinians killed by Israeli soldiers:

The facts show that Israel and its army are trafficking in the organs of Palestinians. There are documents to this effect. Why is Europe trying to stop this [from being exposed]?

“Why must the Palestinian people pay the price under occupation? Why must it be tortured and the organs of its martyred sons used for trafficking? This is the result of the [moral] bankruptcy of the U.S. and Europe and the cover they provide [Israel]. These countries must rise to their responsibility, if they are interested in making peace and reaching a settlement in the region.”

The name of this statesman? Omar al-Ghoul. I wonder if his official portrait was done by Richard Upton Pickman?

BACKGROUND: The organ-harvesting story started in a Swedish newspaper, Aftonbladet, the editor of which later admitted he had no evidence. He should work for the New York Times.


Why do I think this is a bad idea?

September 20, 2009

Zbigniew Brzezinski, Jimmy Carter’s National Security Advisor when Carter was president, thinks the US should shoot down Israeli warplanes if they cross Iraqi airspace to attack Iran.

Now, I’d like to think even Team Obama would laugh Zbig and his lunatic ideas out the door, but, given their bizarre foreign policy that seems to consist of pimp-slapping our allies and appeasing our enemies, I’m not so sure.

At the very least, they’re all too likely to give this failed incompetent elder statesman a serious hearing.  At wits end
