As if ClimateGate wasn’t bad enough, the climate politicos in Cancun are amidst record cold temperatures. The Gore Effect, of course, is the inconvenient coincidence that when Al Gore attends a conference to give a climate speech, cold spells and freak snow storms attend. He is not even there this time.
Global temperatures seem to have flatlined over the past decade, despite increases in Co2. The Cancun conference has little hope of changing the political climate, which is decidedly chilling against the concept of hampering economic growth to limit Co2 emissions. Instead it seems to be devolving into demands by the third-world for “climate justice” – meaning transfer payments from the developed world.

Tis the season...time to bring back an old toon from the last time we had to deal with these morons fighting for global irony.
Climate Emperor Gore has no clothes.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano today announced the expansion of the Department’s national “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign to hundreds of Walmart stores across the country—launching a new partnership between DHS and Walmart to help the American public play an active role in ensuring the safety and security of our nation.
"Homeland security starts with hometown security, and each of us plays a critical role in keeping our country and communities safe,” said Secretary Napolitano. “I applaud Walmart for joining the ‘If You See Something, Say Something’ campaign. This partnership will help millions of shoppers across the nation identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to law enforcement authorities.”

I don't know how this got out, but this was a proposed ad for the program, it was rejected by DHS...

Anger at Obama over tax cuts has Democrats feeling more sold out than their Civil War slave trade.
Poor and middle class say they can lead the nation in job creation if Congress would just give them rich peoples' money
Obama tells press he was ready to exchange punches with GOP over tax cuts after dodging questions on when he started wearing glasses.

I swear, if I went to prison and everyone was making shivs and voting Democrat, I would tell them my name is Mr. Fortherich. First name, Taxes.
Liberals are really pooping themselves over this compromise. It's ok used to poop myself too when I was a baby...
He wants to cut payroll taxes too? It's about time Obama turned his buzz saw to something other than the constitution.
What do we have to do to make the GOP insist they be permanent, give Boehner a private jet?
Wait a sec...A 2% cut in payroll taxes means what for social security? Death panels?
Um, you're welcome Warren Buffet, now take your tax cut and let me in to your bracket :-)
Man oh man, what am I going to buy with my tax cut extension...Oh, I know, time, to save my money for when it expires for reals.
Or we could blow it all by lunchtime and buy "progressives" a clue every time they need one.
Maybe that last thought was a little hasty, I mean, how do tax cuts stimulate the economy by giving consumers the financial wherewithal to act on their demand (aka crazy right-wing "logic") BETTER than funding unemployment
I don't mean to speak in code, but by playing Democrat's advocate I'm just wondering if we'll ever figure out that extending unemployment benefits really does help fuel economic recovery by being a lifeline for those suffering unemployment.
I'm starting to think "progressives" probably just wanted the rich to have their taxes hiked just because...that's how they roll. Why do you think Chris Matthews still has a TV show?
Now, I'm confused, what expires in two years? The extension, or Obama's presidency? Both? Now THAT'S a compromise.Add a comment
Kathy Griffin says she only apologizes for jokes that absolutely nobody finds funny. Critics have only been able to identify the one where she calls Bristol Palin fat, and her entire career.
Obama and GOP reach a compromise on tax policy that finally brings optimism to experts hoping the economy remains sluggish.
Seething with rage at the proposed tax cut extension some liberals have resorted to flashing the peace sign in anger.Add a comment
Political correctness has now raised its head is what one would have thought a stronghold of traditional Christianity -- the work of C.S. Lewis. To be precise, the new film of his Voyage of the Dawn Treader, one of the best-selling "Narnia" series of children's books.
The Dawn Treader is a revival of an old Irish form, the Immram, telling of a ship voyaging among islands, with the crew learning some lesson at each stopping place.
The imaginary world of Narnia is, of course, under the rule of kings who acknowledge the rule of its Creator, the good lion Aslan, an attempt by Lewis to make the idea of Christ accessible to modern children.
However, actor Liam Neeson, who provides the voice of the lion in theDawn Treader, has claimed it is also based on other religious leaders such as Mohammed and Buddha....
Neeson was quoted as saying "he [Aslan] also symbolises for me Mohammed, Buddha and all the great spiritual leaders and prophets over the centuries. That's who Aslan stands for as well as a mentor figure for kids -- that's what he means for me."

To me Liam Neeson's mind is symbolic of a salad bar, and the absolute only ingredient available is iceberg lettuce.
However, the lettuce is also representative of all the other great ingredients that make up a salad, like tomatoes, and spinach, and sprouts, and shredded carrots, and that fake crab meat, and garbanzo beans, and ranch dressing. Yeah, it may all still taste like lettuce, but when I tell you which pieces of lettuce are supposed to be tomato, for instance, you should be able to activate your imagination (I'm not imagining it, it really is tomato, to me) and understand the rainbow of flavor presented before you.
For the purposes of full disclosure, I should also mention it's not entirely true that lettuce is the only thing on the salad bar. There are also A LOT of bugs, because the lettuce has been sitting out for a month, pesticide free, and is completely rotten...
It is, after all, the mind of Liam Neeson, to me.
