Can We STOP With The Months?

Hey, I’m all about honoring people, places, and things that are relevant. In fact, in a previous life, I lived for Chase’s Calendar of Events. In case you’re not up on that one, it’s a book that’s published annually that lists all of the weird days to celebrate. In May, we celebrated International Victorious Women’s Month. Then in June, we’re celebrated Gay Pride Month. It was also African-American Music Appreciation Month, as well as 40 other things we are celebrated.

Frankly it needs to stop.

I get tired of watching the companies and their advertising pandering to these groups. Do you really think that the NFL and Target stores really care about Gay Pride Month? I can tell you that they care about one thing. The mighty dollar (which is what they should care about). And they are doing nothing but pandering to the gay community by changing their logo to some rainbow flag for the month. If you really are interesting in promoting this lifestyle, fine…then change your logo all year long. Doing it for one month, and only doing it in the United States is pandering. The funny thing is, the NFL logo didn’t change in China. I wonder why?

Look, I get it that everybody that has the slightest interest in anything wants a month or a week, or a day to celebrate it. But we don’t celebrate it. I tried to count how many of these celebrations are listed in Chase’s Calendar…just for the months, not even bothering with the days or weeks. I quit counting after June and I was over 200 different things being celebrated one month or another.

June is supposed to be Gay Pride Month. It’s also Dairy Month, Iced Tea Month, and Outdoor Marketing Month. Why aren’t we seeing the NFL and Target (just two businesses I’m picking on at the moment…there are many others) going after Iced Tea drinkers, or billboard companies?

The fact of the matter is, we’ve lost control over what was at one time a fun and whimsical thing. Yes, it was cute when we celebrated National French Fry Day, or Doghouse Repair Week. And part of the reason was, we didn’t have six million companies pandering to them. Yes, Wendy’s offers free French Fries on National French Fry Day. Just like Red Robin has a “buy one get one free” on cheeseburgers on National Cheeseburger Week. But why do we need to celebrate stuff like Fall Hat Month?

We no longer celebrate George Washington’s Birthday or Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday. Instead we do Presidents’ Day. We still celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, but where is Native American Appreciation Month (I’m sure it’s there…I just haven’t looked!) Can’t we just stop with the naming of months? Is there really a need for a Gay Pride month in June, followed by a Gay History Month in October? I didn’t even realize there WAS a gay history!

Let’s stick to celebrating the traditional holidays, like New Years Day, Christmas, Passover, Ramadan, Easter, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, and Memorial Day. I’d even throw in Labor Day if pressed on it. Can we just agree that enough is enough already?

Yup…It’s A Little Different Today!

Never one to play favorites, I wanted to share a story or two about someone very special to me. He was special (and still is to this day) because he was my first…my oldest…my son. And it’s today I wish him a very happy birthday! And yes…tomorrow, we get back to the political stuff. But today, please indulge me again.

Words can’t describe the feeling I had when I saw my son for the first time. He cried a little but he actually “cooed”. I used to call him “Coo Bear”. And watching him grow up was an unbelievable dream come true. I know parents are usually proud of their kids, and I’m certainly in that group, but this guy was special. I knew it almost from the very start. And he hasn’t disappointed.

He wasn’t the most athletic kid in the world. He came to me when he was six and wanted to play soccer. I asked him what he knew about the sport and he said, “You can’t use your hands”. Well, that started a twelve year love affair with the sport that would see his old man coach his travel youth soccer team, and become a referee so I knew what I was talking about when I told them they didn’t know what they were talking about. And he was such a student of the game.

How many other kids 10 or 12 years old would tell you not to start them so they could study the guy they’d be playing against? He’d watch his opponent intently, learning his moves, and about 10 minutes into the first half, he’d come to me and say he was ready. He was a great defender, and proved it time and time again. He wasn’t fast. In fact, we used to call him Mack Truck because he started out so slowly it was like a Mack Truck in first gear. But he learned. In fact, he ended up being captain of his high school soccer team. And when they upset one of the top teams in our district in the state playoffs, I couldn’t help but cry with joy.

He went off to college and wanted to become a computer engineer. He worked throughout college at getting decent grades and ended up meeting the girl of his dreams. They were married soon after. Since that time, he’s blessed us with two great grandkids, and has not only been a great computer engineer, he’s also been a bank Vice President, and currently works in the energy industry for one of the largest oil companies in the world.

He is about as laid back and low key as I am amped and juiced. That’s the part he gets from his mother, I’m sure because her entire family is like that. But when he tells you something, you can take it to the bank he’s done his homework, he’s done the due diligence, and he’s positive that what he’s telling you has merit.

So, today, I wish Ed a very Happy Birthday! I wish him many, many more. And what’s so neat is that he and his sister (who I already wrote about on HER birthday), always come to see Mom & Dad and “Gigi” (Grandma) for a week at Thanksgiving. Such a special time, and after having cancelled last year because of COVID, we are excited to be seeing them this year.

And tomorrow, I promise…we will get back to the boring politics of Joe Biden and company!

UFO’s And What We Are Told

I’ve actually waited a couple weeks on this one before getting it scheduled. And the reason is simple. Since 1947, 85 miles northwest of Roswell, New Mexico, when a piece of what was described as a spacecraft was found…then refuted as a “weather balloon” less than a day later by the Air Force, we’ve been fascinated with aliens. And not the kind that cross the border near Nogales, AZ. I’m talking about the kind that cross the border from the Ozone layer.

It was back at the end of June that the Department of Defense, under a directive that was issued by Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fl) last year, gave them until the end of June of this year to release all of the pertinent documentation they had on UFO’s. They did.

It showed that there were some 144 instances of UFO’s that were identified as such by Air Force pilots, commercial pilots, regular Joe’s like you and me, etc. And what did those 144 instances show? Well, in one photograph they felt that the object was “a large deflated balloon”. The other 143 objects? The government didn’t have a clue what they were. They couldn’t find out any more information.

Now, I know there is this fascination with people (?) from outer space coming to Earth to either help us, or study us, or hurt us. It’s been a staple of sci-fi movies for decades. My point is quite clear.

When I was coaching youth soccer a LONG time ago, and my players would complain that the other kids were shoving them or tripping them, I always answered the same way. I’d say, “Well, what are YOU going to do about it?” And I would answer the whole UFO question the same way. Except I’d change it slightly. “Well, what CAN you do about it?”

If there is more intelligent life out there in the cosmos than what we have on Earth, and by looking around, that’s not a very long putt, what can we do about it if aliens from outer space are looking at us, or visiting with us, or come to be our overlords? We obviously don’t have the technology that they would have, since we have yet to send actual human beings to other worlds other than the moon (and a few folks still doubt that ever happened). Instead, we worry about it. We fear it, we embrace it, we get all worked up about it. And there isn’t a damn thing we can do about it. What CAN we do? I don’t think there’s anything we can do.

I’m not saying there ARE aliens visiting us, I don’t know, and neither do you. Oh, we have our feelings, our belief, but we don’t have solid, incontrovertible evidence. As far as I know, we don’t have an alien body locked away in a cooler somewhere. I know I’ve been to Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, and supposedly they have one stored away. No one showed it to me (nor did I expect them to if they did have one). And what are we going to do if we see one? You think they speak English? French? Chinese? Doubtful at best.

I think there are many other fish to fry. Worrying about whether someone from somewhere else is looking at us is not only a waste of time and money, it yields nothing. As far as I know, we don’t even know how we would communicate with them if we were face to face with them. So, whatever magical formulas they may possess are going to be useless to us unless they know how to communicate to us in a way we can understand. And IF they exist, they haven’t done much with us for the past 75 years or so. I doubt they’re in a hurry to become our overlords!

Ten Years Later…

As of 2pm Mountain Daylight Time today, I will have been in my current Arizona abode for a total of ten years. It really doesn’t seem possible to be honest with you. I think back to that harrowing month of June, 2011 and am amazed that we even made it here.

When I retired from Clear Channel Communications just before Memorial Day, my wife and I drove out to see our daughter and her family in Omaha, Nebraska. We came back and immediately interviewed realtors. We chose one at 9:30pm that evening. The next day, before the house was even listed and before we had signed anything, he had a family interested in buying the house. They did. It took about 18 hours to sell. That meant that everything we had planned as far as taking our time getting packed up and getting the house ready went into overdrive.

We painted just about every room in the house, and let the buyers choose the colors. We did all of the fix it work to make sure the house was sound. In the meantime, my wife and I had three states left in our “golf in every state” bucket list, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska. So, we flew out to Oregon, then to Seattle, and finally to Anchorage. We came home, found out that the moving company we had hired had backed out on us, so we quickly rented some Penske trucks, paid some friends a couple hundred bucks to help us get loaded and we were on our way.

We pulled into the driveway of our new home at exactly 2:00pm ten years ago today.

Since that time I spent the first three years golfing, pretty much every day. In fact, for a couple of years, I played more golf than Tiger Woods, just not nearly as well. Being bored with 6 to 7 rounds a week, I decided to run for the Recreation Centers’ Board of Directors. I got elected and have served two terms. I’m now getting ready to depart that at the end of this year, and start my REAL retirement.

During this time, I’ve looked back at my former career, my life, my family, my belief system, and found out several things. I’m exceedingly glad that I retired when I did. The radio industry has changed drastically, and not for the better. Local legends have been fired for doing nothing more than being in place for a long time. A company that knows absolutely nothing about radio or broadcasting in general took over Clear Channel and renamed it “I Heart Media”, which is kind of a stupid name if you ask me. But it fits their management style…rather childish. Talking to a former partner of mine who I was honored to do a morning show with, I found out, it’s not just radio. He retired from a Fox TV station about a year ago and said they have the same problems. He’d go out on a remote broadcast, and the equipment wouldn’t work half the time. Seems pretty par for the course.

Don’t even get me started on the bent that journalism has taken during that time. That’s pretty well documented.

I will only say this in closing. It’s been a fun ten years. My wife and I love it in the southwest and wouldn’t think of leaving. The people are friendly, the weather is great (if you don’t mind 118 degrees in the summer), and there is plenty to do. It would be nice if we had a president that actually understood the border crisis (as we do), but then again, I’m surprised he can find the Oval Office every morning!

WCS Shows Early Favorites For GOP In 2024

The Western Conservative Summit was held this past weekend in Denver. And while its a chance to see all of the conservative muckety mucks all in one place, it’s also a very early chance to see who they like for President in 2024. They, as CPAC does, release their straw poll of early contenders for the Republican nomination.

It really wasn’t that big of a surprise if you think about it.

In first place with 74.12% of positive approval rating (how they judge it), was Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis. He barely beat out Donald Trump who had 71.43%. After that it was pretty much a horse race.

The rest of the top ten were in order: Ted Cruz, Mike Pompeo, Tim Scott, Kristi Noem, Tom Cotton, Rand Paul, Donald Trump Jr, and Mike Pence.

I was a little surprised at who actually did not make the list. Nikki Haley was way down toward the bottom with only 19.14%, just doubling “Other”. I thought she’d do much better than that.

But, if this is any indication of who the early front runners are, it’s going to be a two-horse race between the two Floridians. By the way, Cruz wasn’t close with only 42.86% approval.

As far as the top issues for conservatives at the Western Conservative Summit, that’s not a real surprise. Leading the way was immigration and border security, followed by election integrity, religious freedom, the federal debt and guns rights.

There really isn’t anything surprising in any of the top issues for these guys. Of course, out here in the west, border security is a lot more important issue than it is in a lot of places. When you live in a border state, it’s always on your mind. Of course, here in the desert, we’re a couple hours away from the border by car.

Overall, it should be an interesting two year run up to the nomination. I’d call Ted Cruz the dark horse in this one once again. I doubt Pompeo would run, though he might surprise me. Tim Scott would do a lot as far as getting Dems’ to stop with the “racist” card every time they don’t agree with something, but I’m sure the “Uncle Tom” card would come out from this bunch! Other than that, I don’t see that Kristi Noem, who has done a fabulous job as Governor of South Dakota; Tom Cotton who is a conservative lightning rod; Rand Paul who has run before and has always come up short, Donald Trump Jr. who really isn’t a politician (I’d be more likely to vote for Jared Kushner); and Mike Pence, who probably will never live down the Trumpers’ accusation that he betrayed Trump on the January 6th fiasco.

One thing is for sure. When it comes to 2024, running against a very weak and feeble Joe Biden will be relatively easy for everyone…except maybe Donald Trump himself!

Our Biggest Threat…

What would you say the biggest threat to America is? Think about that for a minute. There are so many different places that you could turn. If you were to listen to Al Gore or that girl in, what is it? Norway? It’s gotta be Global Changing Warming Climate or some such nonsense. If you live in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, or San Diego, California, you might mention border security and the invasion of our country by illegal aliens. You may think if you live in Flint, Michigan that it’s lead tainted drinking water.

Of course, if you’re thinking in the past, you may believe that the biggest threat to America is al qaeda or the Taliban. Then of course, there is the Democrats’ favorite whipping boy, Russia and Vladimir Putin, right? What about former President Trump’s favorite? China? They say they are ready to go to nuclear war with the US if we press them any farther on the whole COVID investigation.

All of you would be wrong.

According to Joe Biden, the biggest threat to America is none of those things. It’s white supremacy. That’s right. Worse than the climate, worse than the millions of illegals streaming across our “closed” border, worse than bad drinking water. It’s worse than the Russians, or the Chinese, or the North Koreans, or the Iranians. It’s home-grown white supremacy.

Now, if you try to define “white supremacy”, you might run across a definition that calls it “the belief that white people constitute a superior race and should therefore dominate society, typically to the exclusion or detriment of other racial and ethnic groups, in particular black or Jewish people.” Which is interesting because I know several Jewish people. Most of them ARE white. But apparently, they don’t fit into “white supremacy”.

I usually try to stay away from race as a topic here, for one simple reason. I think ALL races are equal. There are good and bad in every segment of society, and in all races. No one race is exempt from that. There are good people and there are bad people. The color of their skin doesn’t determine that trait. In fact, it has nothing to do with it. There are just as many misguided and lunatic white people out there as there are black people, brown people, yellow people, or red people. And there are just as many good people out there in those races as well.

For Joe Biden to make such a stupid and inane comment like that in public, regardless how he feels personally is an assault on the 61% of non-Hispanic white people in America. Yes, there are some “white supremacists” out there. Just like there are black racists out there. But neither is the “greatest threat to America”. Such a statement speaks volumes of Biden’s lack of intelligence, and total disregard for decorum.

I thought Joe Biden said he was the guy that “could unite ALL Americans”. He was the guy that could bring us all together. How in the hell can you do that when you’re calling over half of your constituents “white supremacists” as the uber-leftist snowflake socialists are doing? Have you seen some of those ridiculous posts on TikTok screaming that all whites are bad? Most of them are done by little white girls.

Biden needs to get his act together quickly. He is rapidly becoming a non-entity in this country. Hell, he can’t even get an infrastructure bill passed because he needs to kow-tow to the left on overspending and bankrupting America.

I will close with this…you chose wrong, America. You chose wrong.

What Has Happened To US?

A fan at an NBA basketball game throws popcorn at an injured player heading to the locker room. The player responds by trying to go after the fan. His trainers and coaches restrain him from going into the stands (shades of Ron Artess, er…Meta World Peace). At another NBA game, a fan throws a beer bottle at a player. Former NBA great and current commentator, Charles Barkley claims that the NBA should allow players to go into the stands to deal with unruly fans.

A woman on a Southwest Airlines flight is upset because she took off her seat belt and the flight attendant told her to put it back on. The woman brutally beat the flight attendant until she could be restrained. The flight attendant suffered two broken teeth and a bloodied face. The woman has been arrested, and is banned from ever flying Southwest again.

Throughout last summer, in Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Baltimore, New York, and several other cities, mobs of people defied “social distancing” and “mask wearing” rules and rioted in the streets. Oh, they said they were protesting the death of George Floyd. It was totally other stuff that they were screaming at. They were rioting against the government. They were upset at the police. They were upset at being locked in their houses during COVID last spring. And what has happened to them? Only 300 have at this point, been charged with a crime that could land them in jail. The most serious charges were arson, attempted murder, assaulting a police officer, burglary, and destroying federal property. Their Biden administration has been busy dropping the charges left and right. Most will only pay a fine and do community service.

In January, hundreds stormed the US Capitol building. They were upset that the US Senate was going to accept the results of the Electoral College, which they felt were fraudulent because of voter fraud in basically five states. After stating that “hundreds” were arrested and charged with “felony rioting”, it turns out there are basically on 44 individuals that will be facing serious jail time, if they are indeed convicted. That could be tough to prove.

So, what the hell is happening to us?

We used to be a rather calm nation. We used to be a nation that came together in tough times. I seriously doubt that’s the case at all right now. You have a Democrat party that is so out of touch with mainstream America, that they are fighting for the literal soul of our nation. And that soul is black as the coal they want to ban.

We are seeing more and more abhorrent behavior in our country. Drive-by shootings that kill five year old kids sitting on their front porch, Mobs of Antifa and BLM that burn buildings because they are angry and don’t want to do things the right way, but just want to destroy; Democrats in our halls of Congress calling for getting rid of the very police departments that protect us; and those same people that are in favor of passing a $6 trillion, up $2 trillion over this current year, which included a lot of COVID relief spending.

Basically speaking, the country is out of control. Why did it happen that way and what can we do about it?

My view is simple. If you are arrested for something, for anything, and you are found guilty, whether it’s rioting, or throwing a beer bottle at an athlete, you are going to jail. I don’t care if we have to do an Arpaio (meaning Joe Arpaio, former Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona), and set up barbed wire fences in the desert, so be it. We need to inform these miscreants that there is a price to pay when you riot, when you beat up flight attendants, when you misbehave. Until that time, we are living in Lord of the Flies. Anything less is leading to anarchy, and destroying our nation. And we need to get rid of people that are self-proclaimed “leaders” in Congress that feel that it’s alright to burn buildings and protest as long as you’re doing it against Republicans or Donald Trump, but not against Nancy Pelosi. Those people need to be reminded that we do live in a Democratic Republic. They don’t speak for anywhere near a majority of us, and they need to shut up.

I Guess Money CAN’T Buy Happiness!

I was sadden to learn this the other day. Bill and Melinda Gates have decided to get divorced after 27 years of marriage. Well, I should say first that the REASON I’m sad is because I don’t like it when anyone’s marriage doesn’t work out. Having been a child of a broken home, I can tell you divorce isn’t something that should be celebrated. It’s a wrenching event that has lasting effects on all parties involved. The good news is, there aren’t any kids involved here. But it teaches you one lesson…

Money apparently cannot buy happiness.

Bill and Melinda issued a statement announcing the divorce. Well, technically I don’t think they ever called it a “divorce”. They said they had decided to “end their marriage”. Same thing really. It didn’t say what was going to happen to the $130.5 billion that has been amassed. Apparently there was no pre-nuptial agreement, so the odds are, Bill will be taken to the cleaners, and every gigolo in the world will be hot on Melinda’s trail. Yeah…I suppose if they can live with a bad haircut, women the world over will be all over Bill as well.

The couple will still work together in one vein though. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will continue to spread money all over the world. They’ve given over 1,600 grants totaling over $54 billion in just over 20 years. I did the math. That equals about $33.75 million per grant. No…I wasn’t in on getting any of that pie.

I think as I went through my 40’s and was watching my kids grow, it hit me that I was chasing the almighty dollar. I had been pretty much all of my adult life. “If I could only make…” became a mantra. But when it hit me that I really had been caught up in that and not watching what was important to me, I decided I didn’t care what I made. Money certainly couldn’t buy happiness. Oh, it can buy things that can make you happy for a while. But it can’t buy true happiness. I already had that with my family. I had that with my wife. And when we got married, I could afford a warm bucket of spit.

It may have taken the Gates’ a little longer to figure that one out, but apparently they have. I really do feel sorry for folks that are married and unhappy. That’s not the outcome that should be happening when you do get married. It should be blissful. It should be magical. But you have to work at it. Not just today, but every day. At least that’s what I’ve learned. And apparently, the Gates’ may not have run out of money, but they did run out of the ability to create that magic.

Even though politically, I can’t stand Bill & Melinda’s positions on things, I feel sad that they are calling it quits as a couple. That can never be a good thing. And it does prove the old adage. Money certainly can’t buy happiness!

And Now For Something A Little Different

I normally don’t do this, so please allow me the indulgence. I don’t talk about my kids all that often. Oh, they’re great kids, and I have wonderful grandkids from them. I’m as proud as I can be of them. But today, it’s kind of a special day, so please indulge me. We’ll get back to politics tomorrow, I promise!

It was about 4:00am on this day in 1982. I was getting out of bed to get ready to do a morning show at a small market radio station in Southeastern Michigan. My wife mentioned to me as I got dressed that I probably wouldn’t be finishing the show today as she was ready to give birth to our second child. I went in, did the 5:30am news, and got the call to come back home. We got to the hospital, and after what seemed like an eternal labor, my daughter Katrina was born that afternoon.

Now, I will say that raising boys and raising girls are entirely different and anyone that’s had both will back me up on that one! Both had some trials and tribulations, and both turned out to be exemplary people. Kat is one of the greatest mothers and wives you could ever ask for. I become more and more proud of her each and every day. Her growth, her spirituality, her love for her family is second to none. I don’t know how she has the energy to do all she does. Whether it’s working at her church, or running a Girl Scout Troop for her daughter, or helping her son out with his homework, she still manages to put everyone ahead of her needs. And she does it willingly and lovingly.

It wasn’t always that way. Oh, she could be a hell-raiser in high school. And there were several times I wondered whether I had it in my to do my job as a father. But she has taught me more about life and what we are here for than I ever could have taught her.

So, today, I celebrate her birthday with her. I miss her greatly because we haven’t been able to be together except for Zoom calls and Skype and that type of thing for over a year. Normally we go to visit her and my son in the summer and then they both fly out to the desert to enjoy a week with us over Thanksgiving. Those are about three weeks in the year I enjoy the most. But thanks to COVID, last year was basically postponed. However, this year, we will once again be making the trek to see the family, and we can’t wait.

So, thank you for indulging me today. It’s her 39th birthday, and I just wanted to say Happy Birthday Honey! Mom and I love you, miss you, and can’t wait to see you!!!

And we’ll get back to the idiots in DC tomorrow…I promise!

The Paris Climate Accord Hoax

Joe Biden couldn’t wait to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord. You know…the group of nations that banded together to once and forever fight climate change to the point that we would save Mother Gaia, right?

Uh…there’s a problem.

While the United States is busy shutting down the coal industry, putting over 53,000 people out of work permanently (unless they learn to write computer code), the rest of the world isn’t following in our footsteps. Let’s take a look at what’s happening with coal-fired power plants, shall we?

The European Union, which chastised Donald Trump for getting out of the accord, has 468 coal-fired power plants as of this morning. They are building 27 more for a total of 495. India has 589, but are building 446 more. That’s a total of 1,035. China has 2,363 and are building 1,171 more for a total of 3,534. In total, there are going to be 5,615 projected coal-fired power plants in eight countries in a few years. Oh. The US? The US has 15. We aren’t building any.

So, knowing that, would you agree with me that the United States is kind of alone when it comes to serious carbon reduction? Or, does the rest of the world already know what idiots like John Kerry and Al Gore apparently don’t want you to know…that it doesn’t matter.

In case you’ve been living in a cave for the past 30 years, or you actually believe the nonsense that people like Gore and Kerry spew on a daily basis (while jetting around the world in private jets most of the time), there may very well be climate change. The reason is simple. It’s what climate does. It’s the actual definition of climate. It changes. And these fools want you to join them in believing that you taking little Jimmy to soccer practice, and little Suzie to dance lessons in an SUV are responsible. You’re responsible because you’re polluting the planet. Hence, we have to follow the Green New Deal. We’ve only got, what? Two or three years left before the planet explodes?

Well, that has been their mantra over the past three decades. We were supposed to be under water by 1990. We were supposed to have no ozone layer by 2000. We were supposed to all be dead by 2010. And what happened? Well, they were wrong. Here’s why.

The one problem I’ve had from day one with all of the eco-terrorist nonsense is that it’s based on a lie. And the reason governments are lying to you about it is because it’s a power grab. Read Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals”. One way the socialist leftists of the world gain power is by limiting your ability to travel. Keep you at home, keep you inside, don’t let you travel, or sock you with outrageous fees anytime you do, and you’re going to want to stay home. Sound familiar to the last year? It’s exactly what has happened.

The one question I’ve asked scientists, activists, everyone is simple. If we are the cause of this climate change, and the liberal leftists believe, how in the world did we have the Ice Age? How in the world did we ever escape from the Ice Age? There were no cars around to lessen the ozone layer and allow more warming sunlight onto the earth. Yet, the ice actually melted…leaving us things like the Great Salt Lake, and the Great Lakes! How is that possible?

It’s possible because the earth is cyclical. It warms, and it cools. It’s been doing that since before you or I were ever around. And it continues to do so, regardless if we drive cars, or fly in airplanes, or blast off to Mars. And it will continue to do so until the sun becomes a red giants and swallows us in a few billion years. It’s science. And it’s something the leftists aren’t willing to follow when it doesn’t mimic their mantra.

So, as the rest of the world continues to build coal-fired power plants, in this country, we’re going to ban coal. We’re going to ban fracking. We’re going to try and get away from using oil. Why? Because Al Gore and John Kerry and that idiot girl in Norway says so. So, let me ask a further question…does listening to them make us a bigger idiot than they are? I think so!
