A Christmas “miracle”

  A 5 year old Az girl  was abducted on Christmas by a 45 year old man.  She was missing over 7 hours.  An Amber alert was issued.  A police officer spotted the vehicle, despite the perv having changed license plates.  After a brief pursuit and foot chase, perv caught and little girl rescued.  What kind of animal is this guy?   What should happen to him?

A redneck Christmas

Santa might be a little late this year...

Global warming caused by aircraft vapor trails?

Don’t let my conspiracy nut poker buddy see this.  Like throwing gasoline on his fire.  Vapor trails supposedly account for 15-20% of warming in the Arctic.  How did they determine this? Why, they built a model that considered “atmospheric composition, cloudiness and the physical properties of emissions, particularly of black carbon.”   Then “These variables were then applied to a grid and aligned with historical data.” And they did all kinds of other sciency neat stuff, too!   ;)

It’s a government conspiracy.  See what is really going on.

Science Fair project conquers pollution

Kid discovers which microorganisms and which conditions cause plastic to biodegrade.  And he’s a Canuck.  From Discover Magazine blog:  “At 37 degrees and optimal bacterial concentration, the microbes had consumed 43 percent of a plastic sample within six weeks.”  Continue reading

True commitment from the GOP Senators

The Democrats band together in unity to pass a law that a majority does not want, even if it means losing their individual seats and their majority status.

The Republicans under Sen. Mitch McConnell band together to move the vote up so that they can all get home on time for Christmas.  VOTE. THE. BUMS. OUT!  Jim DeMint for President.

Finally, a reason to support ObamaCare!

Liberal Girls Are Slutty

From Noel Shepperd at NewsBusters via Sister Toldja “The political advocacy group “Rock the Vote” has a new video out encouraging young people to abstain from having sex with folks opposed to healthcare reform.”

….”The group’s YouTube posting asks: “What would you withhold from someone who opposes health care reform? Cookies, a Christmas gift, sex?”

Ok, that’s the only reason that I can think of…

In praise of monogamous relationships

My poker buddy, who thinks he is a stud and has it made, is wrong. Buddy often brags about his latest conquests.  He’s late 30s, and if you believe him, he has had handfuls of women in the past 2-3 years. Most of them much younger than him, few involving any long term relationship. Some of them even married.  I have no reason to doubt him. 

Lately, for the past 6 months or more, he has found someone close to his own age and they have been dating exclusively.  So if you are  her, stop reading this.  My problem with him is that he has bragged about how wonderful he has it.  Lately, when a hot babe would come on a T.V. commercial, for instance, he has made comments to we married gentlemen such  such as,  “John hasn’t seen a hot woman like that in 25 years.”  I’m sure he really thinks he has it made and is living the life. 

But I disagree. First of all, if he married his current woman, he might have kids when he is over 40.  I would hate that. I’m too old and I did that when I was younger and stronger.  And if he never has kids? I would never have missed mine for any amount of indiscriminate sex or money. 

And yes, he brags when he nails some new chick.  But he has to worry about catching the latest veneral disease, or worse, and about birth control, and even about whether this newest edition is a psycho.  Sure, the sound of being a single guy playing the field sounds great.  But I think he is missing out on some of the greatest joys in life.  A life-time commitment, a mate who is faithful.  Love and acceptance for who you are, with no game playing.  Actually, I feel sorry for him.  I look at him and see a kid who never grew up.  I hope he finally sticks with this gal he is with now, for his sake.
