This is sooo true.
I’ve already had a couple of blog posts commenting on how Texas is kicking California’s you-know-what. Being a fiscal policy person, I always point to California’s punitive state income tax as an example of bad policy and highlight the absence of any income tax in Texas to explain the success of that state.
But sometimes it’s just culture and attitude. Here’s a joke comparing the two states, but it’s based on something that actually happened in Texas.
CALIFORNIA: The Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out, bites the Governor and attacks his dog.
1. The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie “Bambi” and then realizes he should stop; the coyote is only doing what is natural.
2. He calls animal control. Animal Control captures the coyote and bills the State $200 testing it for diseases and…

Hellooooo friends! I hope everyone is well. I’d like to take a little break from art and music for this post, because the animal lover in me can’t resist sharing this video. It’s been viewed 18 million times on YouTube, and it’s adorably funny. I guess I’m one of those rare people who is neither a “dog person” or a “cat person”. I love them both. But it’s the cats who are striking fear into these lovable dogs. I was dying at 1:04 :lol:
We have lots of good stuff on deck for Museworthy. Art modeling has resumed so there will be dispatches from the studios, new profiles of muses, more art talk, music exploration, and a blog anniversary coming up next week. So stay tuned! See you soon :-)
Well, how do you like that? Put more CO2 (aka “plant food”) into the atmosphere, combine that with the end of a drought and some human ingenuity, and suddenly another prediction by the global warming prophets of doom goes poof:
The study shows that the West African Sahel – part of the semiarid strip just south of the Sahara desert, which spans the African continent from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea – has been steadily “regreening” since the severe droughts of the 1970s and 1980s which killed more than 100,000 people.
Among the reasons for the “regreening” are increased rainfall, the beneficial effects of increased atmospheric CO2 on plant growth and the ingenuity of farmers (“community-led conservation efforts) in this harsh, marginal region.
Skeptics have long been aware of these beneficial side effects of “global warming” – see, for example, this report from 2011 by the Global Warming Policy Foundation called The Sahel Is Greening.
I swear these people make it too easy: they issue scaremongering warnings of doom-Doom-DOOM!!, and all we have to do is wait for the Earth (not their goddess, Gaea) to stick a grapefruit in their face. Atmospheric hot spot? Nope. Disappearance of snow? Nope. Continued, unstoppable, catastrophic warming all due to Mankind’s folly? Er… um… Well?
Good thing they have their faith to keep them strong in these trying times:
So, I’m not the only one to note that the “planned spontaneity” the
Lady Macbeth Hillary Clinton campaign is working on sounds a bit… Stalinist:
The Autumn Campaign of Joy and Spontaneity! Join the All Party Cadre! Celebrate Kim Jon Hill! Extra gruel! Missile parades!

From the linked NYT article:
There will be no more flip jokes about her private email server. There will be no rope lines to wall off crowds, which added to an impression of aloofness. And there will be new efforts to bring spontaneity to a candidacy that sometimes seems wooden and overly cautious.
I hate to tell Her Inevitableness’ handlers this –God alone knows, they have a hard enough job anyway just trying to make people not hate her– but, if you have to game out how to be more spontaneous, you’re probably doing it wrong.
On the other hand, this guy approves:

I think this gets to the heart of it:
