TheStar.com - U.S. won't play ball at climate conference

TheStar.com - U.S. won't play ball at climate conference: "The United States appears determined to scuttle efforts here to agree on future measures to combat climate change.

'We're going to resist it, obviously,' said Harlan Watson, head of the U.S. delegation, of a proposed agreement across nations on the issue of climate change...

Environment Minister St�phane Dion spent much of the first day insisting he'd try, as conference president, to get all 189 countries to agree on a plan to cut emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.

The key, he said, is national targets for cuts under the Kyoto Protocol, the 1997 centrepiece of the battle against climate change. 'We believe in the necessity of targets.'

But Watson was adamant: 'We've made it clear on a number of levels to the Canadian government — we feel very strongly that it's not appropriate; the ground is not there,' he said in an interview with BBC Radio."

The Kyoto Protocul was voted down 97-3 in the US senate, a place where they hardly agree on anything. But this idea is soooo restrictive the captitalistic nations, that even teh senate could agree to not support it. I hope they unite in the same way for this.

Undeniable Truths in Life: Parts 35-40

we've not been around to much lately, and here's makeup on the last 5 days.

#36: Communism Kills.
Joseph Stalin killed more people then Hitler, and the communist nation of china is one of the worst human rights violators in the world. Cuba and North Korea are commies, and both nations have starving citizens in abundance. Iraq, Iran, the Taliban, and Syria either were or still are communist, and are a breeding ground for terrorists.

#37: Freedom is God given.
When man was first created, he was endowed with the freedom of choice. As such, this is a God given right all men posses, no matter where they reside.

#38: Neither the US, nor anyone, imposes freedom on peoples of other nations.
Because freedom is a God given right, we cannot force freedom upon anyone. We can only allow freedom, not enforce it.

#39: To free peoples, peace means the absence of threats and the presence of justice.

And the only way to create an absense of threats is through the aggressive use of force, and a strong miltary as a deterent to further attacks.

#40: The Peace Movement in the US - whether by accident or design - is pro-Communist.
As in the "Anatomy of the Photograph" most peace protests have a decidedly communist slant. If you listened to much of what Cindy Sheehan said, it would have made Joseph Stalin proud.

Relations With Alien Civilizations

Former Canadian Minister Of Defence Asks Canadian Parliament To Hold Hearings On Relations With Alien "Et" Civilizations - Yahoo! News: "'The secrecy involved in all matters pertaining to the Roswell incident was unparalled. The classification was, from the outset, above top secret, so the vast majority of U.S. officials and politicians, let alone a mere allied minister of defence, were never in-the-loop.'

Hellyer warned, 'The United States military are preparing weapons which could be used against the aliens, and they could get us into an intergalactic war without us ever having any warning. He stated, 'The Bush administration has finally agreed to let the military build a forward base on the moon, which will put them in a better position to keep track of the goings and comings of the visitors from space, and to shoot at them, if they so decide.'

Hellyer’s speech ended with a standing ovation. He said, 'The time has come to lift the veil of secrecy, and let the truth emerge, so there can be a real and informed debate, about one of the most important problems facing our planet today.'"

So the former Canadian Minsister of Defence is looking for a new legacy, so we must prepare for the aliens by NOT putting weapons in space.... Danged liberals.

#35: There is only one way to get rid of nuclear weapons - use them.

The uranium doesn't break down. and so the only way to destroy them is to use'em!

18-Year-Old Mayor Sworn In

WTOL-TV Toledo, OH: 18-Year-Old Mayor Sworn In: "HILLSDALE, MICHIGAN -- Hillsdale now has a new leader. 18-year-old Mayor Michael Sessions held his inaugural rally Monday night with his high school marching band following him through downtown and eventually to city hall. Hundreds gathered to cheer on their young mayor as he thanked everyone who helped him win the election as a write-in candidate defeating former mayor Douglas Ingles by just two votes."

Couple of thoughts:
1. That is sooo cool. 18 year old in charge of a city.
2. You don't need a college education to do something.
3. Every Vote Counts!! Sessions was elected by a 2 or 3 vote edge.

UndeniableTruths in Life: Part 34

#34: Ours is a world governed by the aggressive use of force.

No matter how hard folks try, it comes down to the fact that anytime something happens (barring natural desasters), there is an aggressor involved. Cause and effect, aggressor and defender.

403-3: House votes to stay in Iraq

BREITBART.COM - Just The News: "The House on Friday overwhelmingly rejected calls for an immediate troop withdrawal from Iraq, a vote engineered by the Republicans that was intended to fail. Democrats derided the vote as a political stunt.

'Our troops have become the enemy. We need to change direction in Iraq,' said Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania, a Democratic hawk whose call a day earlier for pulling out troops sparked a nasty, personal debate over the war.

The House voted 403-3 to reject a nonbinding resolution calling for an immediate troop withdrawal.

'We want to make sure that we support our troops that are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. We will not retreat,' Speaker Dennis Hastert, R- Ill., said as the GOP leadership pushed the issue to a vote over the protest of Democrats."

I don't think that was a cheap political stunt! Just good politics. I am now supposeing the democrats don't want to withdraw, they just want to blather about the president.

War is a factor of life, and always will be. Get used to it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Undeniable Truths in Life: Part 32

#32: Peace does not mean the absence of war.

The dictionary definition of peace is:
  1. The absence of war or other hostilities.
Peace really is not the absense of war or hostilities between aggressive equals, but of domination. True peace can never happen withouth one side winning, either in War, politics, or sports (Red Sox vs. Yankees anyone?). When domination occours, then peace follows. A treaty can be made between two nations, but if they are still at odds and of comparable strength, then there is no peace.

Undeniable Truths in Life: Parts 28, 29, & 30

#28: The Los Angeles riots were not caused by the Rodney King verdict. The Los Angeles riots were caused by rioters.
Riots are not caused by an event, they are caused by the personal choice of the "rioters". While they may be set off by an event, it is there free will that caused them to riot.

#29: You could afford your house without your government - if it weren't for your government.
Taxes cost money

#30: Words mean things.

Its true! Thats why we say them!

Sorry for the delay, and appreciate the triple dose!

The Return of the Warhawk

BREITBART.COM - Just The News: "The stakes in the global war on terror are too high and the national interest is too important for politicians to throw out false charges,' the president said in his combative Veterans Day speech.

Defending the march to war, Bush said that foreign intelligence services and Democrats and Republicans alike were convinced at the time that former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

'Some Democrats and anti-war critics are now claiming we manipulated the intelligence and mislead the American people about why we went to war,' Bush said.

He said those critics have made those allegations although they know that a Senate investigation 'found no evidence' of political pressure to change the intelligence community's assessments related to Saddam's weapons program.

He said they also know that the United Nations passed more than a dozen resolutions citing Saddam's development and possession of weapons of mass destruction.

'More than 100 Democrats in the House and the Senate who had access to the same intelligence voted to support removing Saddam Hussein from power,' Bush said."

Here Here!!!!

"We will never back down. We will never give in. We will never accept anything less than complete victory," he said Friday."

Freedom will prevail!

Undeniable Truths in Life: Part 27

#27: The culture war is between the winners and those who think they're losers who want to become winners. The losers think the only way they can become winners is by banding together all the losers and then empowering a leader of the losers to make things right for them.

Its called class evny, and when a democrat is in charge, it increases. When taxes are raised on the rich, everyone says "Yay!!! We screwed the rich folks". However, when their tax bill comes, do they feel any better? No, but they had fun hateing the rich!

'Intelligent-design' school board ousted in Penn

'Intelligent-design' school board ousted in Penn - Yahoo! News: "DOVER, Pennsylvania (Reuters) - Voters on Tuesday ousted a Pennsylvania local school board that promoted an 'intelligent-design' alternative to teaching evolution, and elected a new slate of candidates who promised to remove the concept from science classes.

The board of Dover Area School District in south-central Pennsylvania lost eight of its nine incumbents in an upset election that surprised even the challengers, who had been hoping for a bare majority to take control of the board."

Weeeellll... That was a bit disturbing!!

Election day

BREITBART.COM - Just The News: "The contest in Texas was decided quickly _ the ban was receiving 75 percent of the votes in early returns. Like every other state except Massachusetts, Texas didn't permit same-sex marriages previously, but the constitutional amendment was touted as an extra guard against future court rulings.

The campaign had been enlivened over the past week because of a controversial tactic by the amendment's opponents, who argued in recorded phone calls to voters that the measure was so poorly worded that it could jeopardize traditional man-woman marriages. Amendment supporters denounced the effort as misleading."

75% is higher then I was expecting!
The decietful advertising campaign was looked at Here .

I don't know what the voters in California are doing, they want change, but don't want to support the guy who is trying to make the changes...

undeniable truths of life #25

#25: Liberals measure compassion by how many people are given welfare. Conservatives measure compassion by how many people no longer need it.

A liberals view of compassion is when they are keeping more people in the projects by giving them welfare.

Adel al-Zubeidi, who was representing former Iraqi Vice President Taha Yassin Ramadan, was killed and another lawyer was wounded in an ambush in the Adil neighborhood, according to lawyer Khamis al-Obeidi."

I should be upset that is happening, but I can't find it withen myself to comdem it.

Bible study banned in dormintory

JS Online: Bible study policy raises ire: "Every Tuesday last school year, Lance Steiger took a Bible to the basement of his dormitory at UW-Eau Claire and led a small group of friends in a discussion about a particular chapter or verse.

Steiger, a resident assistant and a junior at the time, said he was never told he could not lead a Bible study in the dorm where he worked helping students adjust to college classes and campus life.

But in July, he got a letter from school administrators warning him that if he continued to hold Bible studies in his dorm this year, he would face disciplinary action.

The issue has spawned a flurry of heated exchanges between Steiger, school officials, civil liberties groups, and at least one U.S. representative who on Thursday called the university's position 'outrageous and un-American.'"

The state believes that becasue they are paying for this guy's room, they should control what he does in their, even when he is off work.

In other news:
Dail Mail: Tax Office exposed as Christmas Killjoys: "A leaked memo tells staff the department cannot continue to be associated with the charity Samaritan's Purse because its operations do not conform to diversity policies and could bring the Revenue into 'disrepute'.

The ban, imposed by HM Revenue & Customs chairman David Varney after complaints from trade union activists, was called 'strange' by the Church of England last night.

The Revenue's 100,000 employees have supported Operation Christmas Child since the late 1990s.

The appeal sends more than a million shoe boxes from Britain to children in countries including Azerbaijan, Armenia, Romania, Serbia, Sudan and Mozambique.

The leaked memo, from Michael Scott, assistant director of the National Insurance Contributions Office in Newcastle upon Tyne, tells staff: 'We are not dictating who you can or cannot support, but you will appreciate that as a department we cannot be seen to promote activities that do not broadly fit with our philosophy or which could bring us into disrepute by association.'

A spokesman for the Inland Revenue added: 'We have very clear workplace policies regarding the importance of valuing difference.

'When an organisation demonstrates evidence of being at odds with those core values we cannot make special provision for that organisation to be supported on our premises. To do so would be hypocritical and at odds with our diversity commitments.' ""

Diversity commitments, my foot. As long as it ain't Christian, its diverse!!!

Undeniable Truths in Life: Part 24

#24: Progress is not striving for economic justice or fairness, but economic growth.

Economics aren't fair, and they never will be. By creating market caps to level the playing field, everyone is hurt.

Intelligent design case awaits ruling

Intelligent design case now in judge's hands - Americas - International Herald Tribune: "HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania The first trial in the United States to test the constitutionality of teaching intelligent design as science has ended with a lawyer for a pro-design school board pronouncing it 'the next great paradigm shift in science.'

His opponent, an attorney for the 11 parents suing the Dover school board, dismissed intelligent design as dishonest, unscientific and based entirely on 'a meager little analogy that collapses immediately upon inspection.'"

Now that we know who is who...

"The case will be decided by Judge John Jones 3rd, who said he hoped to issue his ruling before the end of the year, or early January at the latest.

The scientists who advocate intelligent design explained that the complexity of biological organisms and the "purposeful arrangement of parts" are evidence that there is a designer. They said their theory was not religious because they were not claiming the designer is God, since that is untestable.

Scott Minnich, an associate professor of microbiology at the University of Idaho, testified for the defense on Thursday and Friday, saying that intelligent design is like seeing a watch and implicitly knowing that it had a designer - the argument the plaintiffs' attorney called "a meager little analogy."

So, you have a flamewar cropping up with a generally conservative judge at the helm. Teach'em both, they're both just theories anyways.

Undeniable truth in Life: Part 23

#23: Using federal dollars as a measure, our cities have not been neglected, but poisoned with welfare dependency funds.

A plethora of money breeds corruption, just as we have seen in New Orleans. The money will be siphoned off for less important things, and the people become depenant on the money, rather then making their own life.

Undeniable Truths in Life: Part 22

#22: Liberals attempt through judicial activism what they cannot win at the ballot box.
That's why the 9th Circuit is their favorite court, and why the Battle
for the supreme court nominees is such a huge deal.,

And the steamroller continues

Economists Predict Increase in Jobs - Yahoo! News: "The nation's retailers reported solid sales gains for October, a key gauge of activity in service industries posted a big rebound and productivity advanced at the strongest pace in more than a year, according to reports issued Thursday.

And analysts managed to find a silver lining in reports that were less positive, noting that while storm-related job losses kept rising and are now at 514,000, the increases are slowing. They viewed a bigger-than-expected drop in factory orders for September as a temporary setback rather than an indication of more serious problems in manufacturing.

Many of the nation's big retailers, including Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Costco Wholesale Corp., reported stronger-than-expected sales as the arrival of cold weather boosted demand for winter clothes and falling gasoline prices put shoppers in more of a spending mood. The gains boosted prospects for the holiday shopping season.

Meanwhile, the Institute for Supply Management said the service sector of the economy, where most Americans work, grew at a faster pace in October.

The institute's non-manufacturing index rose to 60 last month, significantly higher than September, when the impact of the hurricanes and surging energy costs had helped push the index down to a reading of 53.3."

We're on a roll!
Also, unemployment will remain around 5%, with is nearly 1/3 of that of most eropean countries.

Senate's 'Gang of 14' Fractures Over Alito - Yahoo! News

Senate's 'Gang of 14' Fractures Over Alito - Yahoo! News: "WASHINGTON - The 14 centrists who averted a Senate breakdown over judicial nominees last spring are showing signs of splintering on
President Bush's latest nominee for the Supreme Court.

That is weakening the hand of Democrats opposed to conservative judge Samuel Alito and enhancing his prospects for confirmation.

The unity of the seven Democrats and the seven Republicans in the 'Gang of 14' was all that halted a major filibuster fight between GOP leader Bill Frist and Democratic leader Harry Reid earlier this year over Bush's lower court nominees.

The early defection of two of the group's Republicans, Mike DeWine of Ohio and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, could hurt if Democrats decide to attempt a filibuster of Alito, the New Jersey jurist Bush nominated Monday to replace retiring
Sandra Day O'Connor.

If Democrats do filibuster, Frist wants to change the Senate rules to eliminate the delaying tactic — something the centrist group blocked in May."

Wonder why this didn't happen sooner. They should break the cowards up, and confirm Alito.

Arming for Armageddon

Alito Nomination Sets Stage for Ideological Battle: "President Bush nominated U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr. to the Supreme Court yesterday, rallying his estranged Republican base back to his side and triggering a torrent of liberal attacks that could foreshadow a bruising ideological showdown over the future of the judiciary.

In effect relaunching the nomination four days after Harriet Miers withdrew under fire, Bush selected a long-standing New Jersey judge with an extensive record of conservative rulings on abortion, federalism, discrimination and religion in public spaces. If confirmed to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the swing vote in recent years, Alito seems likely to shift the court to the right.

Conservative leaders who helped force Miers to pull out Thursday rejoiced at the selection, seeing in Alito the philosophical equivalent of Justice Antonin Scalia. Liberal groups moved instantly onto a war footing and accused Bush of bowing to the most extreme elements of his party. The intensity of the response instantly put Alito at the center of what seems to be the political confirmation battle that both sides have been gearing up to fight for more than a decade."

Why the right was mad about Miers:
1. No record.
2. Not much evience of conservative beliefs.
4. Political choice, a stealth canidate.

Why we support Alito:
1. Long record of justice
2. Long record of conservative beliefs.
3. The Dems HATE him.
4. Not the poltical choice, will bring a fight with the democrats, and one that we will win.
