Oh, hey, hi! How ya been?

Been a while, huh?

Yeah, sorry about that. Cookiemaker and I have been hip deep in house-hunting, house-buying, and moving over the past month or so, so time really hasn’t all that plentiful for luxuries like blogging. 😦

So, as you might imagine, I have a buttload of material to get through. Never fear, though, I won’t try to do it all in one shot. Let’s begin, shall we?

* – yes, I am ashamed that I didn’t think of this first:

🙂

* – virtual reality glasses from Google, anyone?

* – well, it’s about damn time! I’ve been wondering where my flying car has been.

* – oh, there’s some good news for an already struggling Red Sox team.

* – somehow I think there’s more than just ten hypocrites in Hollywood

* – some folks in Hollywood, however, appear to be weaning themselves off the Kool-Aid.

* – did these actors even read these scripts before they signed the contract?!

(I might add Sean Connery in Highlander II, Laurence Olivier in the original Clash of the Titans, Jeremy Irons in Dungeons & Dragons, and Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and Jeremy Irons in Die Hard III to the list…

* – yes, Keith Olbermann, you’re a $10 million chandelier. And a very humble one at that.

What an unmitigated ass…

* – a fitting tribute for Keith, here, from Glenn Beck.

* – RIP, Mike Wallace.

* – RIP, Dick Clark.

 

* – happy birthday, Steven Seagal.

* – hasn’t been a good time lately for the cops and their P.R. image in Minnesota,

* – a THIRD network has now admitted to false reporting in regards to the Trayvon Martin case.

But there’s no bias in the media. None at all…

* – exactly how is it there are no New Black Panthers being arrested?

* – just because they’re on the opposite side of those jackass New Black Panthers doesn’t mean the neo-Nazis are going to help the situation in Florida.

Morons…

* – ‘cuz I needed to see the Rev. Jeremiah Wright grab his crotch.

* – Dear United Nations,

Please keep your nose out of the American legal system. What happens in our country is none of your fucking business.

Strong message follows.

Love and kisses,

NHFalcon

* – nope, voter fraud is absolutely NOT a problem:

* – for everybody who thinks the U.S. stole it’s southwestern states from Mexico, they might want to read this.

* – yes, we could learn something from the Tuskeegee Airmen.

* – yeah, that wind power’s really great, isn’t it?

*- wasn’t that darn pesky global warming supposed to have killed off the polar bears by now?

Here’s a little more detail from Newsmax.com:

Climate change doomsayers have for years claimed that declining polar bear populations in the Arctic are a consequence of manmade global warming.

But a new study has found that the bear population in part of Canada is larger than many scientists thought and might actually be growing.

In 2004, Environment Canada researchers concluded that the number of bears along the western shore of Hudson Bay had dropped 22 percent since 1984, to 935 bears, and they estimated that by 2011, a continuing decrease would bring the number down to 610.

The Hudson Bay region is considered a bellwether for how polar bears are faring elsewhere in the Arctic, according to Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail.

The decrease, the scientists asserted, was due to warming temperatures that melt ice faster and ruin the bears’ ability to hunt.

“That sparked worldwide concern about the future of the bears and prompted the Canadian and American governments to introduce legislation to protect them,” The Globe and Mail reported.

The World Wildlife Fund even stated in 2008: “If current warming trends continue unabated, scientists believe that polar bears will be vulnerable to extinction within the next century.”

But a survey released on April 4 by the Government of Nunavut — a federal territory of Canada — shows that the number of bears is now 1,013 and could be higher.

“The bear population is not in crisis as people believed,” said Drikus Gissing, Nunavut’s director of wildlife management. “There is no doom and gloom.”

He added that the media in Canada have led people to believe that polar bears are endangered, but “they are not.”

He estimated that there are about 25,000 polar bears in Canada’s Arctic region, and “that’s likely the highest [number] there has ever been.”

Nunavut, which is the size of Western Europe, is home to only about 32,000 people.

* – also from Newsmax, an interesting little admission from a former global arming “alarmist”:

British environmental expert James Lovelock now admits he was an “alarmist” regarding global warming — and says Al Gore was too.

Lovelock previously worked for NASA and became a guru to the environmental movement with his “Gaia” theory of the Earth as a single organism. In 2007 Time magazine named Lovelock one of its “Heroes of the Environment,” and he won the Geological Society of London’s Wollaston Medal in 2006 for his writings on the Gaia theory.

That year he wrote an article in a British newspaper asserting that “before this century is over billions of us will die and the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic where the climate remains tolerable.”

But in an interview this week with MSNBC, Lovelock said a book he is now writing will reflect his new opinion that global warming has not occurred as he had expected.

“The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing,” he said. “We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books — mine included — because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn’t happened.

“The climate is doing its usual tricks. There’s nothing much really happening yet. We were supposed to be halfway toward a frying world now.

“The world has not warmed up very much since the millennium. Twelve years is a reasonable time. [The temperature] has stayed almost constant, whereas it should have been rising. Carbon dioxide is rising, no question about that.

“We will have global warming, but it’s been deferred a bit.”

MSNBC reported: “He pointed to Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ and Tim Flannery’s ‘The Weather Makers’ as other examples of ‘alarmist’ forecasts of the future.”

Lovelock also declared in the interview that “as an independent and a loner,” he did not mind saying, “All right, I made a mistake,” adding that university or government scientists might fear that admission of such a mistake could jeopardize their funding.

In response to Lovelock’s interview, the Climate Depot website stated: “MSNBC, perhaps the most unlikely of news sources, reports on what may be seen as the official end of the manmade global warming fear movement.”

(but, of course, “the science is settled…”)

* – you’ll forgive me if I find the president complaining about judicial activism to be the height of hypocrisy.

* – and I thought The One used to be a professor of law?

* – you know, when government agencies start wanting out of government-provided healthcare plans

* – interesting piece from the Wall Street Journal about what to do with healthcare.

* – so Obama supports women, huh? Really… ?

I don’t think there women are buying that:

* – I’m sorry, Mr. President, but I’m afraid I didn’t find the following all that funny:

(and if you listen closely at the end you can hear some groans from the audience that would indicate they didn’t find it all that funny, either)

* – like I needed more evidence that The Lightbringer is an arrogant ass.

* – tax hikes under Obama? What tax hikes under Obama?

* – sorry, libs, but the lowering unemployment rate isn’t a good reason to tout Obama’s economic policies, and here’s why.

* – it’s not just about the unemployment rate, folks, and it’s not just about taxes. Don’t forget about inflation, either. When it’s all said and done – if you have a job – what does your take-home pay look like?
