Venezuela

Now you see the true Hugo.  Check it out.  He is not a socialist he is a totalitarian dictator in the mold of Castro, Hitler or Deng Xiaoping. My heart is with the Venezulan people. It was just a matter of time, this true diablo already has blood on his hands for he is a maniacal twisted psycho.  Think about what is going on, the right of freedom of speech is being taken away piece by piece and the Venezuelan people are realizing the mistake they made by not voting when they should have a few years back.  Now they have to fight back before it is too late. 

There are leftist politicians in the US. that want to take away the right of freedom of speech (talk radio is the start), and it is the left,  because they can't handle the truth,  so they want to restrict it.  They also want to take away your right to bear arms , and if that happened, it would make us completely defenseless against any government run amuk.  The moral of the story is "you lose the right to bear arms, you lose freedom of speech".  Losing the right to freedom of speech always leads to the loss of the right of one to practice their religion.  It is not that far fetched,  look at Venezuela.  It has only been a few years but it is at the brink, hopefully the Venezuelan military will do something about this dictator and bring back one of the other true democracies in our hemisphere that people also flocked to like the USA.

God bless America.

 

And God bless the people of Venezuela!

Necessity is the mother of invention.

 

 

This baby gets about a 120 miles to the gallon and if I run out of gas I just pedal.  This is a "homemade" cruiser for getting around when the car ain't necessary.  Running to get lottery tickets,  some groceries, or just cruising the hood, beach, whatever.  Spring, summer, fall it is just plain fun.  It has an 80cc. 2 stroke engine, 72 spoke wheels, springer front end, custom paint, lights, etc..

 This engine can rev to near 4000 rpms. with lots o' torque, more than enough for a full grown adult.

You see necessity is the mother of invention.

Space stuff.

Astronomers are making some observations, and who is to say it couldn't happen before tommorows P3 drawings.

Changes on Neptune Link Sun and Global Warming

 

Skeptics of manmade global warming have found further support in research linking solar output with the planet Neptune’s brightness and temperatures on Earth.

 

The findings appeared in a recent issue of Geophysical Research Letters. The authors of the article, H.B. Hammel and G.W. Lockwood from the Space Science Institute in Colorado and the Lowell Observatory in Arizona, note that measurements of visible light from Neptune have been taken at the Observatory since 1950.

 

Those measurements indicate that Neptune has been getting brighter since around 1980. And infrared measurements of the planet since 1980 show that Neptune has been warming steadily as well.

 

The researchers plotted on a graph the changes in visible light from Neptune over the past half-century, changes in temperatures on Earth during that period, and changes in total solar irradiance.

 

The results: The correlation between solar irradiance and Neptune’s brightness was nearly perfect; so was the correlation between changes on Earth and solar output, according to a report on the research appearing on World Climate Report, a climate change blog.

 

“When the sun is more energetic and putting out more energy, the Earth tends to warm up, and when the sun cools down, so does the Earth,” World Climate Report notes. “The Hammel and Lockwood article reveals that the same is true out at Neptune — when the sun’s energy increases, Neptune seems to warm up and get brighter . . .

 

“How is it possible that the Earth’s temperature is so highly correlated with brightness variations from Neptune? The news from Neptune comes to us just weeks after an article was published showing that Mars has warmed recently as well.

 

“If nothing else, we have certainly learned recently that planets undergo changes in their mean temperature, and while we can easily blame human activity here on the Earth, blaming humans for the recent warming on Mars and Neptune would be an astronomical stretch, to say the least.”

Can't rule out anything the physicists don't know, but they are observing a bit of expansion.  The following scenario is a twin system gone supernova. Anything can happen.  This is an example of just how incredible the universe is and how insignificant we are.

What some have wished for.

Subject: The speech "W" should give
 
 
 This is long, but worth the read.  Funny in it's own right.
            We all have our disagreements with President Bush.  Immigration, U.S. Attorney firings, Iraq, Darfur, etc. are all hot topics these days.  The following "speech" was written yesterday by an ordinary Maineiac.  While satirical in nature, all satire must have a basis in fact to be effective.  An excellent piece by a person who does not write for a living.  Sent with the author's permission.
 
        The speech George W. Bush SHOULD give:
 
            Normally, I start these things out by saying "My Fellow Americans."  Not doing it this time. If the polls are any indication, I
 don't know who more than half of you are anymore.  I do know something terrible has happened, and that you're really not fellow Americans any longer.
 
            I'll cut right to the chase here: I quit. Now before anyone gets
 all in a lather about me quitting to avoid impeachment, or to avoid
 prosecution or something, let me assure you: there's been no breaking of laws or impeachable offenses in this office.
 
            The reason I'm quitting is simple. I'm fed up with you people.
 
            I'm fed up because you have no understanding of what's really going on in the world. Or of what's going on in this once-great nation of ours. And the majority of you are too damned lazy to do your homework and figure it out.
 
            Let's start local. You've been sold a bill of goods by
 politicians and the news media.  Polls show that the majority of you think the economy is in the tank. And that's despite record numbers of homeowners including record numbers of MINORITY homeowners. And while we're mentioning minorities, I'll point out that minority business ownership is at an all-time high. Our unemployment rate is as low as it ever was during the Clinton Administration. I've mentioned all those things before, but it doesn't seem to have sunk in.
 
            Despite the shock to our economy of 9/11, the stock market has rebounded to record levels and more Americans than ever are participating in these markets. Meanwhile, all you can do is whine about gas prices, and most of you are too damn stupid to realize that gas prices are high because there's increased demand in other parts of the world, and because a small handful of noisy idiots are more worried about polar bears and beachfront property than your economic security.
 
            We face real threats in the world. Don't give me this ~blood for oil" thing. If I was trading blood for oil I would've already seized Iraq's oil fields and let the rest of the country go to hell. And don't give me this 'Bush Li ed People Died'crap either. If I was the liar you morons take me for, I could've easily had chemical weapons planted in Iraq so they could be 'discovered.' Instead, I owned up to the fact that the intelligence was faulty. Let me remind you that the rest of the world thought Saddam had the goods, same as me. Let me also remind you that regime change in Iraq was official US policy before I came into office. Some guy named 'Clinton' established that policy. Bet you didn't know that, did you?
 
            You idiots need to understand that we face a unique enemy. Back during the cold war, there were two major competing political and economic models squaring off. We won that war, but we did so because fundamentally, the Communists wanted to survive, just as we do. We were simply able to outspend and out-tech them.
 
            That's not the case this time. The soldiers of our new enemy
 don't care if they survive. In fact, they want to die. That'd be fine, as
 long as they weren't also committed to taking as many of you with them as they can. But they are. They want to kill you. And the bastards are all over the globe.
 
            You should be grateful that they haven't gotten any more of us
 here in the United States since September 11. But you're not. That's because you've got no idea how hard a small number of intelligence, military, law enforcement and homeland security people have worked to make sure of that. When this whole mess started, I warned you that this would be a long and difficult fight. I'm disappointed how many of you people think a long and difficult fight amounts to a single season of 'Survivor'.
 
            Instead, you've grown impatient. You're incapable of seeing
 things through the long lens of history, the way our enemies do. You think that wars should last a few months, a few years, tops.
 
            Making matters worse, you actively support those who help the enemy. Every time you buy the New York Times, every time you send a donation to a cut-and-run Democrat's political campaign, well, dammit, you might just as well FedEx a grenade launcher to a Jihadist. It amounts to the same thing.
 
            In this day and age, it's easy enough to find the truth. It's<BR all over the Internet. It just isn't on the pages of the New York Times or on NBC News. But even if it were, I doubt you'd be any smarter. Most of you would rather watch American Idol.
 
            I could say more about your expectations that the government
 will always be there to bail you out, even if you're too stupid to leave a
 city that's below sea level and has a hurricane approaching. I could say
 more about your insane belief that government, not your own wallet, is where the money comes from. But I've come to the conclusion that were I to do so, it would sail right over your heads.
 
            So I quit. I'm going back to Crawford. I've got an energy-efficient house down there (Al Gore could only dream) and the
 capability to be fully self-sufficient. No one ever heard of Crawford before I got elected, and as soon as I'm done here pretty much no one will ever hear of it again. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to die of old age before the last pillars of America fall.
 
            Oh, and by the way, Cheney's quitting too. That means Pelosi is your new President. You asked for it. Watch what she does carefully, because I still have a glimmer of hope that there're just enough of you remaining who are smart enough to turn this thing around in 2008.
 
            So that's it. God bless what's left of America. Some of you know what I mean.
 

            The rest of you, * off.

French Shocker

My faith in the good people of France has been restored.  I hadn't been there in while, so it was hard to believe that what seemed like, that all of France didn't like America.  The media and its manipulated polls again were lying.  Moral of the story: Don't believe the polls, think for yourself.  The people of France have spoken!

Hillary Jet Setter

Just the kind of decision making we need. 

Jarasan says: Notice in the following piece from CNN, how they try and deflect the true issue with this story by claiming Beck is a jerk for saying she "threw a temper tantrum" in an attempt to draw attention away in the beginning of the article.  One should really read thru. to the end and look at the sequence of events and decide for themselves what her priorities are and whether or not Beck's usage of temper tantrum is accurate. First the CNN brief, second Beck's show dialouge, and thirdly the Post article.

On the May 3 edition of his CNN Headline News program, Glenn Beck cited a May 2 New York Post article in claiming that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) threw "a temper tantrum over the size of her private jet." According to Beck, Clinton, prior to an April 27 flight to California, "sent the [Gulfstream II] back, empty, and got a much classier GulfStream III." However, the Post article Beck referred to did not say Clinton "threw a temper tantrum." Rather the Post -- citing only an anonymous "aviation source familiar with Clinton's travel" -- reported that Clinton changed planes because she "didn't like the configuration of the cabin" of the Gulfstream II. After reciting the allegations in the Post article as fact, Beck said at the end of the segment that "this story is either completely wrong and is basically a hit piece by the New York Post or Hillary Clinton has become so warped by unbelievable wealth that she cannot -- no longer relate to money anymore."

From the May 3 edition of CNN Headline News' Glenn Beck:

BECK: This is a stupid show. Kim, thanks a lot. Coming up next, Hillary Clinton throws a temper tantrum over the size of her private jet. I'll explain in tonight's "Real Story." That's next.

[...]

BECK: Welcome to "The Real Story."

A week ago today, the Democratic candidates for president got together in South Carolina for the first debate of the primary season, but, you know, what happened on stage really was [snoring] -- the real story is how at least one of these candidates got to the stage.

Hillary Clinton, the champion of the little people, had quite a travel nightmare last week, according to the New York Post. It all started the day after the debate. Hillary had to fly to San Diego, and apparently some staffer had the nerve to charter a GulfStream II for the trip. Now, anybody who is anybody knows a G-II is like a 1972 [Ford] Pinto with wings. I mean, it's garbage.

Most people would be embarrassed, you know, getting out of the limo, walking up the red carpet, well, while a G-II is sitting there, and only one private flight attendant waits to cater your every whim and need. It's craziness.

Anyway, Hillary did what any self-respecting person, especially somebody who loves the little people that much, would do. She sent the G- II back, empty, and got a much classier GulfStream III. Still not a V, but -- she flew that down from Westchester to pick her up.

Now, that's the kind of decision-making that I believe we're looking for in our leaders, but let me back up, because I don't want you to get the wrong impression. On Thursday, the day of the debate, Hillary did actually slum it and take the $4,600-an-hour -- plus fuel -- G-II from Washington to the debate and then back. But then, since she obviously didn't want to be seen with it, she had it fly empty back down to South Carolina to wait for her.

The next day, on Friday, she flew a Hawker 800, big jet, but, honestly, only C-list celebrities would take that. She had that back to South Carolina, where she transferred back to the G-II for a flight to Columbia. Then she decided she didn't like the configuration of that one, so she switched to the G-III and flew that to San Diego, then to San Jose, Reno, Van Nuys, and then back home to her house in Westchester, New York.

Now, total cost for just one cross-country round trip flight on a plane like that is at least $150,000. So you do the math on all those empty jets flying back and forth. I mean, I think that's the most interesting part, when she allegedly flew an empty G-II back to South Carolina.

Quite honestly, it means to me that this story is either completely wrong and is basically a hit piece by the New York Post or Hillary Clinton has become so warped by unbelievable wealth that she cannot -- no longer relate to money anymore.

From the May 2 New York Post article:

Jet-setting Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton is a fussy frequent flier who used three different planes in a single day during a recent campaign swing through South Carolina.

The former first lady even grounded one aircraft - a chartered Gulfstream II - in Columbia, S.C., last Friday, demanding a swankier Gulfstream III replacement for a flight out west.

"She didn't like the configuration of the cabin," an aviation source familiar with Clinton's travel told The Post.

And that was after the Gulfstream II pilot dropped Sen. Clinton off at the bustling commercial terminal rather than the secluded area for private planes, sources told The Post.

The Gulfstream III charter had to be scrambled from Westchester County to swoop into South Carolina and carry Clinton off to San Diego for the start of a two-day fund-raising trip to California, flight records show.

Clinton's campaign did not immediately comment yesterday.

Be careful how you vote.

The Ant and the Grasshopper:

2 scenarios

*OLD VERSION*:

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his
house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays
the summer away.

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!


************************************************************

*MODERN VERSION:*
The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his
house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays
the summer away.
Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and
demands  to k now why the ant should be warm and well fed while others are
cold
and starving.


CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering
grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a
table filled with food. America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be, that! in a country of such wealth, this poor
grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?


Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper, and everybody
cries  when they sing, "It's Not Easy Being Green."

Jesse Jackson stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where
the  news stations film the group singing, "We shall overcome." Jesse then
has  the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper's sake.

Nancy Pelosi & John Kerry exclaim in an interview with Larry King that
the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for
an
immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity and Anti-Grasshopper Act
retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The ant is fined for failing
to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay
his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the government.

Hillary gets her old law firm to represent the grasshopper in a defamation
suit against the ant, and the case is tried before a panel of federal
judges that Bill Clinton appointed from a list of single-parent welfare
recipients.

The ant loses the case.
The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of
the  ant's food while the government house he is in, which just happens to
be
the ant's old house, crumbles around him because he doesn't maintain it.
The ant has disappeared in the snow. The grasshopper is found dead in a
drug related incident and the house, now abandoned, is taken ove r by a
gang of spiders who terrorize the once peaceful neighborhood.


MORAL OF THE STORY:  Be careful how you vote!
