When War is a Blessing

Posted by Mark on October 31, 2007

Israel has been forced to reevaluate it’s military and civilian capabilities in light of the 2nd Lebanese war. Great article, worth reading not just for its impact on Israel, but also for it’s implications for the U.S. military.

The Raptor: Okay, I admit it. I’m a FAN!

The F-22 is bored these days. No fighter in the world can compete with it. In fact, it takes 4-5 F-15s to even make it a contest in air to air combat. As the Air Force fact sheet says:

The F-22A , a critical component of the Global Strike Task Force, is designed to project air dominance, rapidly and at great distances and defeat threats attempting to deny access to our nation’s Air Force, Army, Navy and Marine Corps. The F-22A cannot be matched by any known or projected fighter aircraft.

“Any known or projected fighter aircraft.” It’s lonely at the top.

By the way, check out the air show demonstration below.

What Hurricane Season?

Posted by Mark on October 30, 2007

This just in- apparently we are set to break another CLIMATE record. Uh- huh.Yep. Someone put in a call to Al Gore and his… merry band of global idiots. Seems, with 9 weeks left in the Hurricane Season….we are headed for one of the most INACTIVE seasons on record.

So all those predictions of doom and gloom- massive hurricanes based on global warming. It was all BS….just as I said it was- and I’ve said it MANY MANY TIMES.

Unless a dramatic and historical flurry of activity occurs in the next 9 weeks, 2007 will rank as a historically inactive TC year for the Northern Hemisphere as a whole. During the past 30 years, only 1977, 1981, and 1983 have had less activity to date. For the period of June 1 – today, only 1977 has experienced LESS tropical cyclone activity than 2007. For the North Atlantic basin, Tropical Storm Noel is currently too weak to impact any of these results.

The North Atlantic hurricane season is currently nearly 30% below normal in terms of a well-known activity metric called Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE).

Next year I’ll know better…and plan that trip to the Caribbean I’ve been putting off. I’m thinking September, during the height of the season, will be a perfect time.

A Charmed Life

Posted by Mark on October 29, 2007

My father, an avid Red Sox fan, passed away in 1998. He never got to see the Red Sox win a Championship. He is one of the millions of diehard fans who lived an entire life never seeing the beloved Red Sox win. And now, nine years later, I’ve lived to see TWO CHAMPIONSHIPS in 4 years.

So dad, I hope you can here the roar across Red Sox Nation….REDSOX WIN!! …REDSOX WIN!!

Talk about an endangered species. Berkeley College Republicans (isn’t that an oxymoron?) take a stand against terrorism.

Che It Ain’t So

Posted by Mark on October 26, 2007

This news makes me so unbelievably irritable, I had to take several deep breaths. Heck, I advise you to do the SAME.

Let me just say, up front….I’m all for capitalism. I am. What I’m not for…is: selling your values, your morals, your beliefs– compromising principles, honor and integrity ALONG WITH IT. And in this case, if I had the power to send all of those involved in this transaction- straight to Hell- I would. Placing the southbound ticket in each hand.

A lock of socialist revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara’s hair and related items were auctioned on Thursday in Dallas to a Houston-area bookstore owner for the very capitalist sum of $119,500.

The curious collection had belonged to Gustavo Villoldo, 71, a former CIA operative who helped hunt Guevara down in the jungles of Bolivia in 1967 and who claims he cut off the lock before burying the guerrilla fighter with two of his comrades.

I wonder if those locks are going to sit next to a Bill O’Reilly or Ann Coulter best seller?

“Butler … is thrilled to own items from Che (and) will display them in his store,” said Kelley Norwine, vice president of marketing for Heritage Auction Galleries, which auctioned the mementos.

Nah…probably not.

Climate is Too Complex for Accurate Predictions

Well, duh.

Climate change models, no matter how powerful, can never give a precise prediction of how greenhouse gases will warm the Earth, according to a new study.

Senate Kills the Dream

Posted by Mark on October 25, 2007

BLESSEDLY, the Senate has killed the Dream….again.

The Senate yesterday blocked the Dream Act, a bill to legalize illegal-alien students — the second major immigration bill to be stopped this year and a signal that this Congress is too stalemated to pass any bill that offers a path to citizenship for illegal aliens.

“A lot of senators concluded that from the last vote: Citizenship is not on the table anymore,” said Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican, who led the opposition to the Dream Act and who said the failure earlier this year of President Bush’s broad legalization bill has fundamentally moved the debate toward the right.

Yesterday’s vote was 52-44, with supporters falling eight votes shy of the 60 needed to bring the bill to the floor. Supporters said they couldn’t overcome the “bigotry and hatred” that have dominated the debate over the past few months.

“This debate has changed. What has happened is there are people who are using this issue politically and creating a lot of fear,” said Sen. Richard J. Durbin, the Illinois Democrat who sponsored the Dream Act. “It’s about confusion, distortion, vitriol.”

No you TWIT…it’s about Americans not paying for illegals and not rewarding them for breaking the law! And don’t you love the name of this piece of legislation- “The Dream Act”?

Fortunately, the Senate stomped on the dream. The only one who gets to have a Dream is Martin Luther King. The rest of you liberal blowhards should realize this Dream Act….. is a NIGHTMARE.
