OK ... I used "obtuse" instead of stupid because I'm in a warm and loving mood today. The object of my warm and fuzzy feelings right now would be Mika Emilie Leonia Brzezinski. Yes, she's the 40-year-old daughter of Ziggy. She's the co-host and news reader on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program. Yesterday she was delivering the news about that shooting at the Colorado over the weekend --- you know, the one where Jeanne Assam stopped a killer with a rifle using only a handgun. After she delivers the news story her co-host Joe Scarborough says that this story shows that one person with a gun can make a difference. Mika, who is staunchly anti-gun, responds with "no, no, no, no, no – no no no no no no" and then follows with "You know, that is the most inane statement I have ever heard. You can watch the video right here.

Try to understand this, my friends, though in the end it is going to be impossible. Here is your friendly left-wing news reader delivering a story about one civilian with a gun saving multiple lives .. and then saying that it is "inane" to suggest that one person with a gun can make a difference. ONLY in the mind of a liberal could you find this thought process.

Democrats are trying the blame the Bush administration for pressuring experts to downplay the connection between hurricanes and global warming. A report released by Democrats on Monday called the "Political Interference With Climate Change Science Under the Bush Administration" marks the end of a 16-month investigation into the conspiracy theories of Democrats. The report says that "the Bush Administration has engaged in a systematic effort to manipulate climate change science and mislead policymakers and the public about the dangers of global warming."

Now former director of the National Hurricane Center, Max Mayfield has stepped forward to contradict the Democrats' findings: political pressure did not cause him to change his congressional testimony which downplayed the link between global warming and hurricanes.

The controversy started when a staff member of Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska sent an email to the NOAA asking Mayfield to say that global warming was not making hurricanes stronger. Bottom line for Democrats ... Bush was behind the whole thing. I wonder how many Democrat staffers have pressured government scientists to participate in the global warming alarmism?

By the way, part of Mayfield's original testimony following hurricane Katrina states, "the increased activity since 1995 is due to natural fluctuations/cycles of hurricane activity driven by the Atlantic Ocean itself along with the atmosphere above it and not enhanced substantially by global warming."

Why are Democrats upset? They see global warming as the key to more income redistribution. They don't want to loose this argument.

Australia's new green Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has suddenly done an about-face on cutting green house gas emissions. I love to see a leader with convictions. Just days after Rudd said Australia would back a 25-40% cut on 1990 emission levels by 2020, he has suddenly decided that it is unrealistic.

The electricity industry stepped up and warned that it wouldn't be able to meet growing consumer demand and comply with the target, causing huge rises in electricity prices. The Energy Supply Association of Australia found that cutting carbon emissions by 30% of 2000 levels by 2030 would push power costs up by 30%.

Perhaps Australia's new "green" top guy has figured out that this whole global warming thing is really a badly disguised attack by tired or communists and leftists castoffs against the industrialized world and the evil specter of capitalism.

In light of the report on Iran’s nuclear activity, an Iranian government spokesman said that “Americans should pay the price” for turning international public opinion against Iran.

I don’t think it takes the United States to turn international opinion against Iran … I think its leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad does it for them. His latest idea is to create an international Islamic court to try war criminals and other human rights violators.

He claims that bodies like the UN are being “manipulated by the West.

Remember … when it comes to Iran and whether they do or don’t have nukes, which would be the biggest error:

(a) Believing that Iran does have a nuclear weapons program and taking action to stop it; or,
(b) Believing that Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program, when in fact they do, and failing to stop it.

I apologize for the fact that this may be too tough a problem for a government educated liberal to solve.
