Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation. It is better be alone than in bad company. — George Washington
Words that describe Barack Obama perfectly.
Causes depression. Suitably Flip has an analysis of the 1930s which offers some insight into what went wrong, and why the 1929 crash turned into the 1930s decade long depression.
When government tax receipts go down, government thinks raising taxes will fix. Sounds like an Obama spokesman talking, doesn’t it.
Let’s not forget the New Deal, the make work era of America. One characteristic of make work, building dams, bridges, roads, even low income housing projects, once the work is done, the workers return to the unemployment lines. Long term sustainable employment comes only when people are employed providing goods and services that other people want to purchase, with their income. It’s the circle of economic life, drives an economy, propels everyone to a higher standard of living. Many fail to grasp this basic tenet of what free market economies are all about.
Professor Bob Carter uses the scientific method on the popular theory with global warming being linked to CO2 levels. He examines the AGW hypothesis and it fails the test. Does this surprise you?
I posted this lecture video a while back, it is still one of my favorite easy to understand videos about the climate shenanigans going on in the world. It’s in four parts to be within the youtube guidelnes of 10 minutes, in case you care.
Yes, it’s getting confusing out there, really confusing, temperature of the planet is getting elusive, to say the least. Seems that the real data recorded isn’t agreeing with the hoaxer’s models, so something has to be done. Anthony Watts over at Watts Up With That has some juicy details of the goings on in temperature reporting. The scientists are ‘laughably’ playing games with the data, and it shows. Or should that be ‘laughably’ called scientists?
Science deserves better.
There also appears to be some credential problems amongst the folks in charge.
For some real perspective on climate may I suggest a lecture video of Prof Carter who lays it all out in the gory detail, humorous, and easily followed. Note the time perspective is millions of years, not the last 30 years that mankind has had satellite measuring capability.
Perspective, it’s all about perspective.
When you set out to weave the narrative “pay more in taxes, so government can pretend to control the weather” may I suggest you get rid of all the people who have the skills to dissect and get to the truth under the shenanigans. Else you are doomed to fail.
UPDATE: Extra credit question — Why wasn’t this supposed error caught before publishing the data set?
Answer, because the data produced the answer they wanted all along, no need to check to see if it were real or accurate.
I would like to get my apology to the world in first. I apologize for the ignorant American people who voted this Obama travesty upon an unsuspecting world. I’m truly sorry, there weren’t enough of us smart American people to save America and the world from the horror of Obamunism.
Oh how much fun we are going to have. I think Obama deserves the same respect that everyone found so funny after the 2004 re-election of President Bush, don’t you? Democrats always forget, tomorrow always comes.
