Yet another Global Warming rally cancelled due to winter weather.

Now, I know you all expect to be sunbathing in New Haven for spring break, but you’ve gotta understand that even if you’re right about climate change (-it is the editorial stance of this blog that you aren’t), it wouldn’t happen that quickly.

Maybe look at a calendar next time?  You can still expect cold weather in February for a while longer.

I believe the science is settled on that.

 

No Dave, we’re not.

So nobody feels like blogging, I can understand why. All the shit we’ve been talking about for years is becoming too obvious for even our social, political, intellectual and moral betters to ignore.

But they still are.

First, a Drudgetaposition.

White House Says Tollybon are not terrorists.

Taliban disguised as Afghan cop kills Afghans and US folks.

With this clarification from Jokingly Truthy that the Tollybon are not terrorists but….

Earnest also acknowledged that the Taliban “carry out tactics that are akin to terrorism, they do pursue terror attacks in an effort to try to advance their agenda.

Har-dee-har-har-har.

 

Did the semi-kinetic action to kill/degrade/annoy ISIS end? The reason I ask is because ISIS is taking Kirkuk.

Is it time for the A Team to go in?

I’m not going to get into hypotheticals but you’re presuming that Iran and Syria don’t have any capacity to take on Isil. I mean, who knows? I don’t know what’s going to happen here,” he (J Effin Kerry V) said. “If we’re failing and failing miserably who knows what choice they’re might make.”

 

That’s why Obama wants Iran to have nukes I guess.

 

I would guess that explains this.

The ideological leader of Yemen-based Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) said Friday that France had surpassed the United States as the top enemy of Islam.

Jebus. That’s just embarrassing.

I do wonder the mechanics of it. I’d guess France is the Great Satan so we’re the Little Satan but what does that make Israel? Eh, they’ll kill us all so it doesn’t really matter.

That’s why we’re not blogging, it’s all too depressing.

 

I’m not sure if this is good or bad. Romney isn’t running.  I was kind of looking forward to the No! I’m More Moderater!!!! debates.

A couple chucklers.

Apparently Time is just trolling now. Global Worming…..Climate Grifting causes volcanoes.

It’s too stupid to quote, but by all means, have a snort or six of your favorite adult beverage and have at it.

So I saw what was obviously a p-shop making fun of some new Obamacare ad campaign at S. Weasel’s blog,

It wasn’t a p-shop. It was real. I was worried I’d have to use the same hipster-oriented one she used but fortunately, the site is chock full of teh funny. .

buh^7

 

As we said for the last one of these things, if the target audience is not insulted by this then that’s all about how sad this world is.

Some rare kudos from me to Chris Christie for putting Kaci Hickox in quarantine. Somewhat under-reported is that she briefly spiked a fever.

I don’t know about you, but when somebody who has had direct contact with Ebola patients comes home and has a measurable fever, a bit of a time-out is in order.

Fuck her and the horse she rode in on for complaining about her rights being violated.

But hey – let’s make the story all about how Christie (and Cuomo) might run for President and could have ulterior motives.

A Victory

They finally got to do research on the Kennewick man.

The skull, while clearly old, did not look Native American. …the teeth were cavity-free (signaling a diet low in sugar and starch) and worn down to the roots—a combination characteristic of prehistoric teeth. Chatters then noted something embedded in the hipbone. It proved to be a stone spearpoint, which seemed to clinch that the remains were prehistoric. He sent a bone sample off for carbon dating. The results: It was more than 9,000 years old.

It’s going to be interesting, here’s a link to the book with the results. It’s high dollar so if you do buy it, you should do it from Ace’s or the Puppy Blender (That’s where I saw the link) as they make money off that, we don’t make squat.

For those who don’t know, the Kennewick man is a skeleton at least 9,000 years old and doesn’t look like an American Indian, For some reason, American Indians fought to keep it from being studied. I’m not sure of the real reason, I know the tactics they used to try to keep it from being studied, but I’m not sure why.

I was pretty pissed of that people were trying to fight it being studied. We could study it and then bury it with whatever honors they wanted, but that wasn’t good enough.

 

It also spawned a  bunch of whole conspiracy deals, like that it’s an alien’s skeleton and man is descended from the aliens (The Pak Conspiracy), or one of the conspiracies that is actually pretty plausible. It stated that today’s American Indians didn’t want it publicized that there were people , maybe white people, here before their ancestors.

That could mean they’re just like whitey except their ancestors did it thousands of years ago instead of just a little over a hundred and at least we didn’t eat the people we killed.

Smod Over Parma

Apparently, SMOD doesn’t stand for Sweet Meteor Of Death but Sweet Moon Of Death.

Lunar activity is said to mark the END OF TIME, with some religious groups believing it to be a sign of the JUDGEMENT DAY.

It occurs when the moon’s path of orbit leads it to sweep dangerously close to Earth causing tides to rise and the crust of the planet to shift.

The Bible gives terrifying warnings of impending doom signalled by rare and foreboding cycles of the moon.

But wait! There’s still more!!!!!

The supermoon is coincidentally timed to virtually clash with an annual explosion of ‘fireballs’ due on Tuesday.

The Perseid meteor shower is one of the highlights of the year for astronomers producing a spectacular light show in the heavens.

 

That’s erie.

Dueling SMODs?

So we have that going for us.

I bet NOAA would like a do-over on this

 

It would be funny if… wait, it is funny. They weren’t even close, they’d correct it but they’re too busy calling me a denier.

Cause and implication of the global worming pause.

In my ignorant opinion the cause is the Sun and the implications are that Global Warmmongers lie.

That is all.
