Just like last year we'll be collecting predictions from the attendees for the coming year. (Hopefully we'll do better than last year!)
How about 1 day?
Remember when The Chosen One gave Iran a deadline?
Did you notice how the Iranian leadership - obviously overwhelmed by The Chosen One's "open hand" policy - responded?
Ooooooooo.....they better be careful, I see a strongly worded communique in Iran's future.

Why do you keep reporting that it will provide insurance for 30 million additional Americans?
Just in case you were wondering:
Mandate – noun
1. a command or authorization to act in a particular way on a public issue given by the electorate to its representative: The president had a clear mandate to end the war.
2. a command from a superior court or official to a lower one.
3. an authoritative order or command
Provide - verb
1. to make available; furnish: to provide employees with various benefits.
2. to supply or equip: to provide the army with new fighter planes.
3. to afford or yield.
You could at least try to get it right. You could make the case that by requiring pre-existing conditions this bill would make coverage available to more people, but the government is mandating here, not providing.
You could at least try and tell the truth.

No, I'm not kidding.
No, not years from now, this Friday. These people really don't have an ounce of shame. Spreading their lies to impressionable children through scare tactics.
Frankly their continued actions are so unethical I don't know how people can stand to be associated with them any more.

He essentially called the whole global warming movement hooey. I agree with him on that issue.
Before I posted that video I had never heard of Nick Griffin. Apparently he has a racist past. He is currently a member of the European Parliament and the Chairman of the British National Party and a very controversial figure. People in the UK love or hate him.
The post quickly deteriorated away from the actual subject which was the hoax of global warming being thrust upon the planet.
It got so ugly I eventually just decided to delete it. I'll be criticized for:
A. Deleting the post
B. Not deleting it fast enough.
C. Posting it in the first place. (Even though I knew nothing of this guys past)
D. Not leaving the post up
E. Breathing (Exhaling is contributing to global warming after all)
F. All of the above.
The correct answer of course is F. No matter what I do someone complains.
Frankly I just am not in the mood to deal with the hatred and character assassination that was rampant on that post. In posting Griffin's video at the UN Conference I in no way was endorsing anything he did or said in the past.
Of course the hate left is insinuating that I am somehow a holocaust denier now... You stay classy Jay. Keep making stuff up.
Though people wanted to jump on me no one even considered that if this guy was such a bad apple why was he invited to the UN Summit?
This is a very long clip (its actually part 7 of their “Polar Special”), so please allow me to give you the Cliff’s Notes version:

Yes, it drove to the North Pole (you listenin’, Al?)
Fast forward to the 7:20 mark and watch to the 8:20 mark for Jeremy’s words of wisdom.

I would add, how can they bring a bill like this up for a vote when it has not been allowed to be seen by anyone outside of Reid's office?
I will not disclose the identity of the author, if they would like to do that themselves they may do so in comments.
They provided a “Subject” field, in which I put “Tyranny for Christmas”
I just heard that Harry Reid is pushing to have this Healthcare Vote on Christmas Eve. The Senate is completely out of control. You people are so desperate to execute your tyranny, that you will have the gall to do this on a cherished holiday, when the People are all focused on love and family and joy... to sneak through your despicable, tyrannical bill to take over all our lives.
This is truly a new low, and just completely over the top. Stunning. Stunning. The government is completely out of control.
As a Senator, you have a responsibility to break outside of this box. Change your leadership, get a grip--STOP. The Constitution and purpose of 'the people's' Congress is like a distant memory.
I just don't know what else to say except Knock It Off. Return to your real mission! I don't need to recite the Constitution and Bill of Rights here--READ IT.

Expanding this system to persons 55 to 64 years old would ultimately hurt patients by accelerating the financial ruin of hospitals and doctors across the country. A majority of Medicare providers currently suffer great financial loss under the program. Mayo Clinic alone lost $840 million last year under Medicare. As a result of these types of losses, a growing number of providers have begun to limit the number of Medicare patients in their practices. Despite these provider losses, Medicare has not curbed overall spending, especially after adjusting for benefits covered and the cost shift from Medicare to private insurance. This is clearly an unsustainable model, and one that would be disastrous for our nation’s hospitals, doctors and eventually our patients if expanded to even more beneficiaries.
It’s also clear that an expansion of the price-controlled Medicare payment system will not control overall Medicare spending or curb costs. The Commonwealth Fund has reported this result for Medicare overall by looking at two time periods – one four-year period where Medicare physician fees increased and one four-year period where Medicare physician fees decreased. Overall cost per beneficiary increased at the same rate during each time period. This scenario follows the typical pattern for price controls – reduced access, compromised quality and increasing costs anyway. We need to address these problems – not perpetuate them – through health reform legislation.
We believe insurance coverage can be achieved without creating or expanding a government-run, price-controlled, Medicare-like insurance model.
Check out Nancy Pelosi's or Barack Obama's Muckety Maps and you will find tons of connections. Jim Doyle should get equal coverage. Someone may also want to add to Tom Barrett's skimpy entry and start one for Scott Walker.
Actually, I just came across muckety.com for the first time last week. People can add to and update it, kind of like they do for the Wikipedia encyclopedia. So, the accuracy may suffer some, but the connections can always be double checked, and it is an interesting way to get a shot of a famous person's ties. You can get maps on organizations, too. Celebrities, sports players and numerous public figures are included. Say, anyone want to update the links for Tiger Woods?

However, when Tom Barrett's staffer Patrick Curley makes inappropriate comments about Barrett's campaign, nothing from the press.
If this had been Walker OWN would have had a complaint filed already.
At least Schultz is willing to admit the truth.
The health care "reform" being shoved through Congress is designed to destroy the best of our system and lead us to 100% government run health care.
UPDATE: The sitting SE Wisconsin regional transit authority has a $2 tax placed on every rental car as a funding mechanism.
To date the RTA has spent 44% of the money raised by that tax on a consultant, Mueller Communications Inc., for "public outreach and government relations".
A tax to hire lobbyists to push for even higher taxes.
And they want us to believe Wisconsin is not a tax hell.

Lookie what CBS finally mentioned.
Global warming zealots everywhere are frantically pulling out all the stops to insure their agenda moves forward, despite the damaging Climategate truth.
Last week, Governor Doyle defended the state's pursuit of job and prosperity killing moves based on global warming.
Today, an AP article reported, the Environmental Protection Agency has concluded greenhouse gases are endangering people's health and must be regulated, signaling that the Obama administration is prepared to contain global warming without congressional action if necessary.
At the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen:
Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen said,The ultimate responsibility rests with the citizens of the world, who will ultimately bear the fatal consequences, if we fail to act. Of course, it is up to richer nations of the globe to help poorer nations to convert to a cleaner economy to avoid this end of the world scenario.
Will truth out? Hard to say. When you have people whose beliefs and goals are more important to them than facts, extreme things can happen. History brims with examples.

December 4, 2009
In the wake of Hurricane Katrina there was much posturing about the relationship between global warming and hurricane frequency and storm strength.
Al Gore, who used to be the next President of the United States, has been touting that such a correlation does exist for some time now.
In his latest book Gore actually had storms photoshopped onto a picture of the Earth to make things look more dire.
I am sure most of you have heard of the IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The IPCC hired Dr. Christopher Landsea to do a physical study to determine if there was any actual scientific link between hurricanes and global warming.
Shortly after Dr. Landsea was hired he resigned in a display of ethical scientific charachter that is in extremely short supply today. This is Dr. Landsea's resignation letter.
This is an open letter to the community from Chris Landsea.
After some prolonged deliberation, I have decided to withdraw from participating in the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). I am withdrawing because I have come to view the part of the IPCC to which my expertise is relevant as having become politicized. In addition, when I have raised my concerns to the IPCC leadership, their response was simply to dismiss my concerns.
With this open letter to the community, I wish to explain the basis for my decision and bring awareness to what I view as a problem in the IPCC process. The IPCC is a group of climate researchers from around the world that every few years summarize how climate is changing and how it may be altered in the future due to manmade global warming. I had served both as an author for the Observations chapter and a Reviewer for the 2nd Assessment Report in 1995 and the 3rd Assessment Report in 2001, primarily on the topic of tropical cyclones (hurricanes and typhoons). My work on hurricanes, and tropical cyclones more generally, has been widely cited by the IPCC. For the upcoming AR4, I was asked several weeks ago by the Observations chapter Lead Author - Dr. Kevin Trenberth - to provide the writeup for Atlantic hurricanes. As I had in the past, I agreed to assist the IPCC in what I thought was to be an important, and politically-neutral determination of what is happening with our climate.
Shortly after Dr. Trenberth requested that I draft the Atlantic hurricane section for the AR4's Observations chapter, Dr. Trenberth participated in a press conference organized by scientists at Harvard on the topic "Experts to warn global warming likely to continue spurring more outbreaks of intense hurricane activity" along with other media interviews on the topic. The result of this media interaction was widespread coverage that directly connected the very busy 2004 Atlantic hurricane season as being caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gas warming occurring today. Listening to and reading transcripts of this press conference and media interviews, it is apparent that Dr. Trenberth was being accurately quoted and summarized in such statements and was not being misrepresented in the media. These media sessions have potential to result in a widespread perception that global warming has made recent hurricane activity much more severe.
I found it a bit perplexing that the participants in the Harvard press conference had come to the conclusion that global warming was impacting hurricane activity today. To my knowledge, none of the participants in that press conference had performed any research on hurricane variability, nor were they reporting on any new work in the field. All previous and current research in the area of hurricane variability has shown no reliable, long-term trend up in the frequency or intensity of tropical cyclones, either in the Atlantic or any other basin. The IPCC assessments in 1995 and 2001 also concluded that there was no global warming signal found in the hurricane record.
Moreover, the evidence is quite strong and supported by the most recent credible studies that any impact in the future from global warming upon hurricane will likely be quite small. The latest results from the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (Knutson and Tuleya, Journal of Climate, 2004) suggest that by around 2080, hurricanes may have winds and rainfall about 5% more intense than today. It has been proposed that even this tiny change may be an exaggeration as to what may happen by the end of the 21st Century (Michaels, Knappenberger, and Landsea, Journal of Climate, 2005, submitted).
It is beyond me why my colleagues would utilize the media to push an unsupported agenda that recent hurricane activity has been due to global warming. Given Dr. Trenberth’s role as the IPCC’s Lead Author responsible for preparing the text on hurricanes, his public statements so far outside of current scientific understanding led me to concern that it would be very difficult for the IPCC process to proceed objectively with regards to the assessment on hurricane activity. My view is that when people identify themselves as being associated with the IPCC and then make pronouncements far outside current scientific understandings that this will harm the credibility of climate change science and will in the longer term diminish our role in public policy.
My concerns go beyond the actions of Dr. Trenberth and his colleagues to how he and other IPCC officials responded to my concerns. I did caution Dr. Trenberth before the media event and provided him a summary of the current understanding within the hurricane research community. I was disappointed when the IPCC leadership dismissed my concerns when I brought up the misrepresentation of climate science while invoking the authority of the IPCC. Specifically, the IPCC leadership said that Dr. Trenberth was speaking as an individual even though he was introduced in the press conference as an IPCC lead author; I was told that that the media was exaggerating or misrepresenting his words, even though the audio from the press conference and interview tells a different story (available on the web directly); and that Dr. Trenberth was accurately reflecting conclusions from the TAR, even though it is quite clear that the TAR stated that there was no connection between global warming and hurricane activity. The IPCC leadership saw nothing to be concerned with in Dr. Trenberth's unfounded pronouncements to the media, despite his supposedly impartial important role that he must undertake as a Lead Author on the upcoming AR4.
It is certainly true that "individual scientists can do what they wish in their own rights", as one of the folks in the IPCC leadership suggested. Differing conclusions and robust debates are certainly crucial to progress in climate science. However, this case is not an honest scientific discussion conducted at a meeting of climate researchers. Instead, a scientist with an important role in the IPCC represented himself as a Lead Author for the IPCC has used that position to promulgate to the media and general public his own opinion that the busy 2004 hurricane season was caused by global warming, which is in direct opposition to research written in the field and is counter to conclusions in the TAR. This becomes problematic when I am then asked to provide the draft about observed hurricane activity variations for the AR4 with, ironically, Dr. Trenberth as the Lead Author for this chapter. Because of Dr. Trenberth's pronouncements, the IPCC process on our assessment of these crucial extreme events in our climate system has been subverted and compromised, its neutrality lost. While no one can "tell" scientists what to say or not say (nor am I suggesting that), the IPCC did select Dr. Trenberth as a Lead Author and entrusted to him to carry out this duty in a non-biased, neutral point of view. When scientists hold press conferences and speak with the media, much care is needed not to reflect poorly upon the IPCC. It is of more than passing interest to note that Dr. Trenberth, while eager to share his views on global warming and hurricanes with the media, declined to do so at the Climate Variability and Change Conference in January where he made several presentations. Perhaps he was concerned that such speculation - though worthy in his mind of public pronouncements – would not stand up to the scrutiny of fellow climate scientists.
I personally cannot in good faith continue to contribute to a process that I view as both being motivated by pre-conceived agendas and being scientifically unsound. As the IPCC leadership has seen no wrong in Dr. Trenberth's actions and have retained him as a Lead Author for the AR4, I have decided to no longer participate in the IPCC AR4.
Attached are the correspondence between myself and key members of the IPCC FAR, Download file.
Posted on January 17, 2005 11:39 AM
The behavior of Dr. Trenberth as exposed by Dr. Landsea exposes the reality of global warming, it is a political issue, not a scientific one. The current Climategate scam has shown that advocates are willing to corrupt data that they do not agree with.
Not surprisingly many of the advocates are just turning a blind eye to their disgrace. Much of the media is helping by not spreading the story. If only they would give half as much energy fact checking climate politics as they do Sarah Palin the American public would be much more informed.
I believe this example shows better than almost any other the reality of climate science and politics. Quite simply climate science ceased being science and started becoming political issue a long time ago.
Hopefully the world is waking up to the fraud being perpetrated upon it.
The only petulant child I see is Robert Gibbs.

Do you really want to be the new "war president"? If you go to West Point tomorrow night (Tuesday, 8pm) and announce that you are increasing, rather than withdrawing, the troops in Afghanistan, you are the new war president. Pure and simple. And with that you will do the worst possible thing you could do -- destroy the hopes and dreams so many millions have placed in you. With just one speech tomorrow night you will turn a multitude of young people who were the backbone of your campaign into disillusioned cynics. You will teach them what they've always heard is true -- that all politicians are alike. I simply can't believe you're about to do what they say you are going to do. Please say it isn't so.

This is America, folks. The shortage of H1N1 vaccine should not have occured. Obama called the infection a "national emergency," yet health officials during his watch failed to get the job done for all Americans. Kids were said to be especially susceptable to the virus, but there was not enough to go around there, much less to people 65 and older with serious medical conditions. In fact, the article said that some seniors were afraid to question the vaccine rationing policy, worried their Social Security might be cut off if they complained. These kinds of fears will only increase with the more power Uncle Sam grabs over our lives.
Anyone who is not concerned about the scarcity of health treatment if the government takes control of the system is a fool. Go ahead and shrug off the concerns of people older or weaker, but when the next bad bug comes around, the next one in line for triage just might be you.

Mason is out with a ridiculous proposal to pass toxic toys legislation in Wisconsin. I guess somehow the Consumer Protection wing of the Federal Government is not good enough for Mr. Mason. Commenters said so and now Dustin Block has cut off comments calling them, "especially nasty".
This is the same Racine Left Post that has placed multiple Cory Mason puff pieces in recent weeks while never covering Cory Mason's vote against bringing resources to Racine County to fund fraud investigation into the Wisconsin Shares program. The same Racine Left Post that jumped on the Tom Barrett bid for Governor on day one but has never written one word about Scott Walker's candidacy.
Most of these posts are so delusional. It's being reported that the "hacked emails" supposedly discrediting the work of East Anglian climatologists were planted by a right-wing conspiracy funded by GOP shadow corporations. Bush, Cheney and their cronies will do anything to discredit global warming so they can all keep getting rich from the irresponsible burning of fossil fuels. True leaders like Presidents Gore and Obama are trying to save the globe from devastation at the hands of solipsistic and unprincipled right-wing extremists who appeal to the lowest common denominator of human intelligence, which is very much on display in these posts.
What a precious little nutball this person is. So, some right-wing extremist planted damning evidence while being funded by shadow GOP corporations? Big Oil no doubt. Thank God we have President Gore on the job to save us all.
One things these idiots never have is facts to back them up.
