No wonder I prefer charcoal over gas...

The science run: Gas vs charcoal

By Susanne Rust of the Journal Sentinel

Posted: May. 14, 2009 8:15 a.m.

Worrying about climate change while cooking those brats on your charcoal grill?

Scientists say if you are, you might think of switching to a propane grill.

That's because propane is more environmentally friendly than carbon.

Eric Johnson, lead author of Elsevier's Environmental Impact Assessment Review reported that the carbon foot print for charcoal grilling is almost three times as large as that for LPG (or liquid petroleum gas) grilling.

Prediction.

Adam Lambert does NOT win Idol...

Some of you care, some of you don't, but everyone predicting an Adam Lambert win is wrong.

Ask yourself one question; where do Danny Gokey's vote go?

Answer, Kris.

He will win.

Presidential Comparison Quiz

If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given Tony Blair a set of inexpensive and useless (to Tony Blair's UK video formatting) DVDs, when Tony Blair had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?

If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current on their income taxes, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?

Can't think of anything?

Don't worry. He's done all this in 10 weeks -- so you'll have three years and nine-and-a-half months to come up with an answer.

[ "Some of the cuts we're putting forward today are more painful than others,” Obama said. “Some are larger than others. In fact, a few of the programs we eliminate will produce less than a million dollars in savings. Outside of Washington, that's still a lot of money." ]

....yeah.
So, while BO (the idiot, not the dog) is busy working hard for YOU eradicating wasteful spending, its good to know that he has people working for HIM who have priorities.

A Plea for New Life on Mother's Day

Strange how people who say they are for the powerless "little guy" can still be pro-abortion. The unborn human trumps the whole pack of "little guys" in vulnerability and helplessness. So, why don’t those bleeding hearts reject the cruel practice of abortion?

Instead, they gave us a cold-hearted president who had voted to let the babies surviving abortions be left in utility rooms to die. And now, his handpicked administration is accusing pro-lifers of being potential terrorists based on a handful of mad-man incidents from the past. But, pro-lifers as a group are peaceful activists who would not harm others. They aim to STOP violence against humans of all ages.

According to Wisconsin Right to Life,“Babies suffer significant pain during an abortion procedure,” which is clearly defined as “the direct killing of a baby in a mother’s womb by ripping the baby apart, dismembering the baby, injecting a lethal substance into the baby or other similar means.”

“In Wisconsin, 23 abortion deaths occur each day,” reports Right to Life. “Over 3,500 unborn babies die from abortion in the United States every day” – that’s about 1,277,500 per year. And, get this: “Over 2 million couples each year are waiting to adopt a baby.” You do the math.

Here is a simple message I came up with for the troubled mother-to-be who has decided she cannot raise her child. It uses a “heartbeat” rhythm to underscore the plea. It could also serve as a requiem for the 50 million babies legally aborted in the U.S. since 1973.

My One Request

You don’t know me, Mommy, but I’m
floating here inside you with my
heart a tiny drum-beat, making
music with your bigger heartbeat.

Maybe you don’t want to turn
the pages of my brand new story.
You don’t have to read along, but
could you hold me for a bit

and shield the hidden face you gave me
just until the nurse can pass me,
bundled like a precious package,
to a waiting, loving family?

Happy Birthday.

Who am I?

...lest we forget - which we are prone to do.

***UPDATE: This is the man who started an organization to help take care of the neighborhood. He even managed to receive ~$1M in federal grant money for his efforts, even getting praise from his community and the likes of Rev. Jesse Jackson.
Soon after, however, he wins the scrutiny of the feds for misappropriation of funds – which landed him a stint in prison.
While in jail, he learned that the feds could wiretap and put you under surveillance if they suspected criminal activity, but they couldn’t do it if you were a religious organization. Once he was released, he found (a) religion: Islam. He even tried to come up to Milwaukee from Chicago for his base.
This is the man convicted of seeking out an enemy of the United States to strike a deal in which he – and his band of merry men – would be put on a “retainer” to perform terrorist acts for the low, low price of $2.5M.
This didn’t happen on either coast - this was Chicago.
This wasn’t that long ago - this was in 1987.

NAME: Jeff Fort – Gangleader, Black P. Stones (later “El Rukns” – Arabic for Stones).
Convicted 1987 of plotting with Moammar Khadafy to commit acts of domestic terrorism – currently serving 80 years.

So, yeah, Rabzich this asswipe is an “it.”
(gee, I hope rabzich approves of the terminology)

Another Favor to 'da Union

The President’s fiscal year 2010 budget for the federal government was unveiled last Thursday and surprisingly he found one agency that he thinks deserves a 9% budget cut. This agency is the Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) in the U.S. Department of Labor. Obama proposed to cut its budget from $45 million in fiscal year 2009 to $41 million in fiscal year 2010.

OLMS is the federal agency that investigates financial crimes that occur when union officials steal from their union. OLMS also investigates cases where union officials engage in fraud and other corrupt practices in conducting union officer elections.

Over the last eight years this office secured over 900 criminal convictions of union officials for embezzlement and other crimes and obtained court orders of over $91 million dollars – dollars that will be returned to union members. One would think that given Obama’s emphasis on helping unions that he would want to beef up the only agency in the federal government that watches out for union members and prosecutes those who steal from them.

However, apparently Obama believes that there is no need to prosecute those union officials who steal from their members because his budget cuts this agency, while at the same time other enforcement agencies in the Labor Department are given a huge boost. For instance, the Wage and Hour Division in the Labor Department received a boost of 18%, from $201 million in fiscal year 2009 to $238 in fiscal year 2010.
