Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)

Shock.  Grief.  The conservative movement lost a very powerful voice today.  While I’m sure someone will pick up the flag, Andrew Breitbart will never be replaced.

Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.

We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.

Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.

A quote from his book, Righteous Indignation:

I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.

Today, we are all Andrew Breitbart.

What is wrong with people?

Posted on 14 February 2012 by Spitfire

A Florida mother was arrested for leaving her five year old son in a Gamestop for an hour while she went shopping elsewhere in the mall. Now, I don’t have children but something about that strikes me as very wrong… You had children, now take care of them. Hey power abusing government… when can we instate pre-intercourse IQ tests?

No Fun in the Sun

No Fun in the Sun

Just lay there on your towel and shut up.

The updated rules now prohibit “any person to cast, toss, throw, kick or roll” any object other than a beach ball or volleyball “upon or over any beach” between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Exceptions allow for ball-throwing in predesignated areas, when a person obtains a permit, or playing water polo “in or over the Pacific Ocean”.

However, during the winter off-season, the new rules will be relaxed.

Officials warned that any activities that could potentially harm “any person or property on or near the beach” should not be allowed during the peak summer season.

Your kids could also end up costing you big bucks: the ordinance also prohibits digging any hole deeper than 18 inches into the sand except where permission is granted for film and TV production services only.

Nature Defies Science

Posted on 08 February 2012 by Ed Z

They told us the science is settled.  They told us the opinion is fact.  They told us back in 2008 we had 10 years to make changes to our lives or we’ll have gone too far to ever come back from the brink of total disaster.  The climate crisis.

It seems now that nature has other plans.

The world’s greatest snow-capped peaks, which run in a chain from the Himalayas to Tian Shan on the border of China and Kyrgyzstan, have lost no ice over the last decade, new research shows.

The discovery has stunned scientists, who had believed that around 50bn tonnes of meltwater were being shed each year and not being replaced by new snowfall.

Wait, how can this be?  I thought the science was settled but now you’re telling me the scientists are stunned?  Well this must just be an isolated incident right?  Oh.

Nearly 230 billion tons of ice is melting into the ocean from glaciers, ice caps, and mountaintops annually—which is actually less than previous estimates, according to new research by scientists at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

If the amount of ice lost between 2003 and 2010 covered the United States, the whole country would be under one-and-a-half feet of water, or it’d fill Lake Erie eight times, researchers say. Ocean levels worldwide are rising about six hundredths of an inch per year, according to researcher John Wahr.

While vast quantities of ice melting into the ocean is not exactly good news, Wahr says, according to his team’s estimates, about 30 percent less ice is melting than previously thought.

So their estimates were wrong by 30% and we’re supposed to just shrug and say “tax me anyway”?  Typically, in the real world, if your estimates are off by 30% you get fired.  But the science is settled.  Move along.

Remembering September 11

Remembering September 11

Posted on 11 September 2010 by Ed Z

I struggle to find the words that express how I feel about September
11.  In many ways I think I subconsciously reject finding those words,
because they may just bring back the pain that I’ve long struggled to cope with.

This quote though, reminds me of how I felt watching the horrors of the day.

We stand, as it were, on the shore, and see multitudes of our fellow
beings struggling in the water, stretching forth their arms, sinking, drowning,
and we are powerless to assist them.

Press Largely Ignored Incendiary Rhetoric at Bush Protest

Posted on 12 August 2009 by Ed Z

As Captain Renault
would say, "I’m shocked!"  Via Fox
News

News outlets that are focusing on the
incendiary rhetoric of conservatives outside President Obama’s town hall meeting
Tuesday ignored the incendiary rhetoric — and even violence — of liberals
outside an appearance by former President George W. Bush in 2002.

A description of the protest from 2002 follows:

The angry protest grew so
violent that the Secret Service was forced to take the highly
unusual step of using a backup route for Bush’s motorcade because
the primary route had been compromised by protesters, one of whom
pounded his fist on the president’s moving limousine.

All the while, angry
demonstrators brandished signs with incendiary rhetoric, such as
"9/11 – YOU LET IT HAPPEN, SHRUB," and "BUSH:
BASTARD CHILD OF THE SUPREME COURT." One sign read:
"IMPEACH THE COURT-APPOINTED JUNTA AND THE FASCIST,
EGOMANIACAL, BLOOD-SWILLING BEAST!"

Yet none of these signs were
cited in the national media’s coverage of the event. By contrast,
the press focused extensively on over-the-top signs held by Obama
critics at the president’s town hall event held Tuesday in New
Hampshire.

What is even more disturbing, is that some suspect the most vile of Obamacare
protestors are
actually Democrat plants
!
