Brother X says: "They discovered they were racist!"
"The only question remains: Did anyone check to see which media outlet he was from?"
"Accuracy in Media never bought into the media-hyped theory. Over the years, under the leadership of AIM founder Reed Irvine, we held numerous panels at our conferences on the subject of how the 'science' behind the man-made global warming theory was being manipulated. Dr. S. Fred Singer was a regular speaker. In fact, our recent 40th anniversary conference had a panel discussion, 'Global Warming: Fact or Media Myth?,' featuring Lord Christopher Monckton, Marc Morano of Climate Depot, and Ann McElhinney, director of the powerful film, Not Evil Just Wrong.
"AIM published Jerry Carlson’s, Will Media Expose Global Warming Con Job?, in February 2008. Some of our other articles include, 'Media promote Global Warming Fraud' and Roger Aronoff’s 'Media Frenzy Over Global Warming.' and 'More Hot Air on Global Warming.'
"May I be permitted to say, 'We told you so.'”
"Though job losses were trimmed, the footprint of the $789 billion dollar stimulus package was not to be found. Construction, despite an uptick in housing starts, shed 27,000 jobs, and governments added a paltry 7,000 new workers.
"Only $100 billion of the stimulus was earmarked for infrastructure and the federal bureaucracy is slow about spending it. Much of the rest of the money went to tax cuts used to pay down credit card debt, payoffs for congressional constituents, like summer grants for professors, and to shore up state and local budgets, where officials shortened furloughs but did not add workers.
"A second stimulus package could provide some temporary jobs if given quickly to states and municipalities for repair and rehabilitation projects. Also tax credits for energy saving improvements in homes and commercial buildings would help if the rules and paperwork were simple and not like the nightmare created by cash for clunkers.
"Businesses need customers and capital to create permanent jobs but have neither because of Washington's bad energy and trade policies and its failure to use the TARP as promised.
"The $400 billion trade deficit is terrible for jobs creation."
The following letter was sent to Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations on the UN Climate conference in Bali
Dear Mr. Secretary-General,
Re: UN climate conference taking the World in entirely the wrong direction
It is not possible to stop climate change, a natural phenomenon that has affected humanity
through the ages. Geological, archaeological, oral and written histories all attest to the dramatic
challenges posed to past societies from unanticipated changes in temperature, precipitation,
winds and other climatic variables. We therefore need to equip nations to become resilient to
the full range of these natural phenomena by promoting economic growth and wealth
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has issued increasingly
alarming conclusions about the climatic influences of human-produced carbon dioxide (CO2), a
non-polluting gas that is essential to plant photosynthesis. While we understand the evidence
that has led them to view CO2 emissions as harmful, the IPCC's conclusions are quite
inadequate as justification for implementing policies that will markedly diminish future
prosperity. In particular, it is not established that it is possible to significantly alter global
climate through cuts in human greenhouse gas emissions. On top of which, because attempts to
cut emissions will slow development, the current UN approach of CO2 reduction is likely to
increase human suffering from future climate change rather than to decrease it.
The IPCC Summaries for Policy Makers are the most widely read IPCC reports amongst
politicians and non-scientists and are the basis for most climate change policy formulation. Yet
these Summaries are prepared by a relatively small core writing team with the final drafts
approved line-by-line by government representatives. The great majority of IPCC contributors
and reviewers, and the tens of thousands of other scientists who are qualified to comment on
these matters, are not involved in the preparation of these documents. The summaries
therefore cannot properly be represented as a consensus view among experts.
Contrary to the impression left by the IPCC Summary reports:
• Recent observations of phenomena such as glacial retreats, sea-level rise and the
migration of temperature-sensitive species are not evidence for abnormal climate
change, for none of these changes has been shown to lie outside the bounds of known
• The average rate of warming of 0.1 to 0. 2 degrees Celsius per decade recorded by
satellites during the late 20th century falls within known natural rates of warming and
cooling over the last 10,000 years.
• Leading scientists, including some senior IPCC representatives, acknowledge that today's
computer models cannot predict climate. Consistent with this, and despite computer
projections of temperature rises, there has been no net global warming since 1998. That
the current temperature plateau follows a late 20th-century period of warming is
consistent with the continuation today of natural multi-decadal or millennial climate
In stark contrast to the often repeated assertion that the science of climate change is "settled,"
significant new peer-reviewed research has cast even more doubt on the hypothesis of
dangerous human-caused global warming. But because IPCC working groups were generally
instructed (see IPCC Working Group Schedule*) to consider work published only through May,
2005, these important findings are not included in their reports; i.e., the IPCC assessment
reports are already materially outdated.
The UN climate conference in Bali has been planned to take the world along a path of severe
CO2 restrictions, ignoring the lessons apparent from the failure of the Kyoto Protocol, the
chaotic nature of the European CO2 trading market, and the ineffectiveness of other costly
initiatives to curb greenhouse gas emissions. Balanced cost/benefit analyses provide no support
for the introduction of global measures to cap and reduce energy consumption for the purpose
of restricting CO2 emissions. Furthermore, it is irrational to apply the "precautionary principle"
because many scientists recognize that both climatic coolings and warmings are realistic
possibilities over the medium-term future.
The current UN focus on "fighting climate change," as illustrated in the Nov. 27 UN Development
Programme's Human Development Report, is distracting governments from adapting to the
threat of inevitable natural climate changes, whatever forms they may take. National and
international planning for such changes is needed, with a focus on helping our most vulnerable
citizens adapt to conditions that lie ahead. Attempts to prevent global climate change from
occurring are ultimately futile, and constitute a tragic misallocation of resources that would be
better spent on humanity's real and pressing problems.

"It is only willful ignorance that would keep a reporter or anyone else from knowing what has been known for years, that CO2 increases over the past 300,000 years have never caused temperature rise. Indeed, the rise of CO2 always follows in the wake of a temperature increase. What is so terribly wrong about the Copenhagen conference and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change sponsoring it is that its own member scientists know that too."
"Just how far beyond Afghanistan and Pakistan Obama intends to extend the war he did not say, but there is no question he is fully prepared to broaden the war even further."
What is worse than open racists are the condescending white liberals who pretend not to be racist. It has become fashionable among them to be white Jesse Jacksons or Al Sharptons now. If there was something to Black Friday, Jesse, Al, and the Congressional Black Caucus would complain but they didn't.
Check this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Friday_%28shopping%29
"The term "Black Friday" originated in Philadelphia in reference to the heavy traffic on that day (see Origin of the name "Black Friday" below). More recently, merchants and the media have used it instead to refer to the beginning of the period in which retailers go from being in the red (i.e., posting a loss on the books) to being in the black (i.e., turning a profit)."
Therefore it had nothing to do with race. Also I discovered there have been Black Saturdays, Black Sundays, Black Mondays, Black Tuesdays, Black Wednesdays, Black Thursdays, and other Black Fridays, nothing to do with black people at all.
And look at this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oc1zGRUPztc
and this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWOrz_pitQk
Now look at this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_hole
"According to the general theory of relativity, a black hole is a region of space from which nothing, including light, can escape. It is the result of the defomation of spacetime caused by a very compact mass. Around a black hole there is an undetecable surface which marks the point of no return, called an event horizon. It is called "black" because it absorbs all the light that comes towards it, reflecting nothing, just like a perfect black body in thermodynamics. Under the theory of quantum mechanics black holes possess a temperature and emit Hawking radiation." Nothing to do with race at all.
Now if it used to be called a "Colored Hole" or a "Negro Hole" or an "Afro-American Hole" the councilman would have had a point.
Same with Joy Behar. If Black Friday was called "Negro Friday" she would have had a point.
It's as if we own the word "black" and we complain of unauthorized usage. Black only refers to us and nothing else.
That means "Black Flag" bug killer is racist.
"According to Politico, NPR, which is partially funded by the US Government, tried to strong-arm Liasson off of Fox News."
Brother X says: "Bush made Kennedy say that!"
Brother X say: "Clemmons was a hero!"
I say anyone who says Clemmons was a hero is a terminal idiot.
"Saudi national Abdulsalam Al-Zahrani, 46, was held without bail for the murder of Binghamton University professor Richard Antoun, 77, an expert on comparative religion, authorities said.
"Al-Zahrani, a cultural-anthropology grad student, allegedly pulled out a six-inch kitchen knife and stabbed Antoun four times in the chest in the professor's campus office Friday.
"Student Devin Sheppard said the suspect was at the scene when cops arrived.
"The police asked the grad student, 'Did you just stab him?' and he said, 'Yes.' "

1. Suspend the payroll tax for one year
This gives an immediate 7.65 percent increase in take-home pay to all workers. It also lowers the payroll costs for all employers by 7.65 percent for one year. A total of about $900 billion would be injected directly into the economy immediately, rather than through the inefficiency of the federal government.
2. Suspend federal tax on repatriated profits
Multi-national U.S. businesses are hungry for cash flow, which could come from cash they have sitting in foreign countries to avoid double taxation. The last time this was only partially done, in 2005 during the Bush administration, nearly $300 billion dollars came back to U.S. businesses from their overseas operations.
3. Pass tax-cutting legislation, not more tax credits
Tax credits come after the fact. Tax cuts for businesses come before you have to lay more people off. And if they are the "right" tax cuts, businesses may even be able to hire some people.
4. Suspend limits on business investment deductions
Accounting rules require businesses to depreciate large business investments over time, rather than deduct the full expenditure in the year it was spent. This puts a strain on business cash flow, which is needed to add jobs.
5. Suspend proposed job-killer legislation
Suspend work on passage of cap-and-trade legislation and health-care legislation. They are both huge new taxes on businesses, and the prospect of passage has businesses in a state of "stop." They stop hiring. They stop taking risks. And they stop investing in their businesses. All of these "stops" are job killers. They are not job creators.
6. Replace tax code with single consumption tax
This is popularly known as the Fair Tax, H.R. 25. It would produce a huge sucking sound of businesses from around the world wanting to establish businesses here in the U.S. It would super-charge our economy like never before. It gives power back to the people. What a patriotic idea!
"Mr. President, I know the sixth suggestion would cause your fellow Democrats in Congress to have massive political coronaries, so just focus on the first five and you could save this economy, and possibly your presidency. "
