McKinley becomes Denali…

leave a comment »

Having had his Interior Secretary  change the name  of Mount McKinley to Mount Denali,  His Oneness is travelling to  Alaska to  promote global warming hysteria,  for which you should read more wasted taxpayer money and more government control over your life.    The change was first requested in 1975,  but the Ohio congressional delegation has blocked it because Pres. McKinley was an Ohio native.   Apparently,  all His Oneness need do now is announce he has the power to do as he pleases without consulting  Congress.

Secretary of State John Kerry  will accompany  him to sing more verses of climate change  and pending disaster.   No mention will be made of the tons of carbon emissions his trip will produce,  nor of the manipulated climate data,  much less that there has been no warming for over 17 years.

Stolen signs…

leave a comment »

This is truly too funny —  “Hillary for Prison” signs keep  being stolen  —  in the Hamptons,  of all places.

New Panama Canal a bust?

leave a comment »

Judging by  these photos,  the concrete in the new Panama Canal is disastrously substandard.   If it is already leaking,  its future is bleak indeed when you contemplate the enormous pressures involved with emptying and refilling locks.

DNC doesn’t do military…

leave a comment »

Until the Military Times pointed out the error,  the DNC website captioned  a photo  of Polish military veterans as American veterans.  I give it credit for promptly substituting a shot of U.S. Ranger vets instead.

It also calls the Department of Veterans Affairs by its old name, the Veterans Administration.   Let’s face it,  folks  —  few Democrats harbor any affection for our military,  either the individuals or the institutions.   With the retirement of Gen. Ray Odierno,  His Oneness has rid himself of nearly all of the war-fighting command staff.   God help us.

Science isn’t…

leave a comment »

Rule One:   Consensus is NOT science.   Rule Two:   Soft sciences,  especially psychology,  are squishy under the best of circumstances.    Hard science,  as it was once practiced before the Obama Administration and the climate hysterics decided to corrupt the process,  demands that the results of an experiment be repeatable.   The soft sciences have always fallen short in this area,  as  this shows.   Such a paltry success rate would get you laughed out of any hard science experiment.

Painless cavity repair?

Many people may soon lose their fear of the dentist,  thanks to some new technology developed  by British scientists.

Was this an omen?

Toads and frogs are generally considered bringers of  good fortune  in China,  but maybe they should have been regarded as harbingers of something less pleasant after  this recent  mini-plague.
