Welcome to Mother Russia

I was incensed by this. I could feel my blood pressure rise as I watched what happened to this man at a school board meeting in Maryland.

What has happened to our country?

That Didn't Take Long... Part 2

From CBS:

In the wake of the shooting at the Navy Yard, Obama spokesman Jay Carney said the president is implementing executive actions and reiterated his commitment to strengthening gun laws, including expanding background checks to sales online and at gun shows.

Wow. Since none of the reports I've read indicate that the Navy Yard shooter bought his gun at a gun show or online (he purchased his shotgun legally at a Virginia gun store), the president must have some sort of intelligence that we don't have access to, right?

And as for strengthening background checks... how about taking a look at the government first, Mr. Obama. How about strengthening background checks on who can get on to military bases and secret clearance first?

Classic Obama strawman bait and switch.

That Didn't Take Long

From the Washington Times:

Just hours after the deadly shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, gun control advocates tried to reignite the national debate over gun laws that had only just subsided. 
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat and a longtime gun control advocate, denounced “the litany of massacres” over the past few years and asked rhetorically, “When will enough be enough?”

Wait.. wasn't the NSA spying on us all supposed to stop things like this?

Where Does Creativity Come From?

In an awesome coincidence, I'm posting two John Cleese videos back to back several days apart...

I had a mentor once tell me that if you want to learn how to do something, learn from someone who is great at what you're wanting to learn. There aren't many more creative people than John Cleese, so the opportunity to listen to him discuss where creativity comes from is pure gold...

Yeah... About That Global Warming Thing...

From the Washington Examiner:

A leaked report by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says that the world is not warming but actually cooling, and will continue to get colder until the middle of the century.

Yeah. That's right. Been sayin' it for years.

And there's this, from the UK Guardian:

If correct, it would contradict computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming. The news comes several years after the BBC predicted that the arctic would be ice-free by 2013.

What I want to know is... are these the same people that told us in the '80s  and early '90sthat there would be no more rainforest left by the year 2000?

And more importantly, why do we keep listening to these "experts?"
