The Blob Blog

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

I just rearrived from winter. Climate change is obviously a reality but I think we once referred to this feature of earth-life as “seasons”.

While I was away and tuned in to TCM, I caught the “classic” 1958 “thriller”; THE BLOB, in which Steve McQueen embarrassed himself sufficiently as to prevent him from appearing in the two sequels. For those who have not had the fortune (good or bad) to have seen the film, it involves the arrival of a meteorite on the outskirts of a small town. It is discovered by a hermit who greatly resembles Lloyd Bridges in the final scenes of AIRPLANE, in which he declares that he has sniffed too much glue. The meteorite cracks open upon examination revealing this slime-like substance (actually silicone; the movie might also have been called THE BOOB) which immediately clings to him and begins to digest him. This gelatinous substance grows as it consumes the citizens of the town. In the final scene it is discovered that CO2 fire extinguishers slow and then paralyze the beast, as it does not react well to the COLD! Unable to kill it, however, the government decides to air freight it to the ARCTIC where it remains in a state of suspended animation (but for how long?).

The movie was as stupid as the people who have declared CO2 a climate altering pollutant; a contributor to global warming. As previously noted in these pages, there is no legitimate science to support the claim that humans cause climate change (formerly known as global warming until things started getting colder).

The initial congressional investigation revealed that the basis for the claim, a statistic-based paleo-climatological study in which 300 years of recorded temperature data was extrapolated backwards over the 4,000,000,000 history of the earth (hardly a statistically sufficient amount of data). The congressmen (and women) then heard from real statisticians and mathematicians who stated that the paleo-climatologist who produced the dubious conclusion was neither a statistician or a mathematician and that his conclusions were in error due to the faulty application of the math he employed and that there had been no peer review of the science involved; an essential requirement involved in elevating a theory to a fact.

The congressional inquiry ended with this question put forth by an intellectually challenged member of the House; “But shouldn’t we do something, just in case?” Yes, the movie could have been called THE BOOB.

Risk and Sacrifice

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

As Obama struggles with the reality of the circumstances in Afghanistan, that there are people with whom one cannot negotiate, he is attempting to buy a little extra time before making a commitment relative to troop strength. Yesterday he told a group of service men and women that “I won’t risk your lives unless it is absolutely necessary.” That is appropriate when deciding whether or not to commit troops to combat. However, America has already committed troops to combat and those troops, stationed in harms way, are at ever-increasing risk as a result of Obama’s indecisiveness.

A president’s primary function is to be the Commander in Chief. It is very clear that the current occupant of the White House is not comfortable with this part of his job. America has never been in greater danger. We need someone in office who will take this task seriously. I would be much more comfortable with Joe Biden at this point.

With this in mind I call upon the president to resign so that someone who is serious about defending America, and those who have offered to sacrifice their lives on behalf of her citizens, may take the reigns and act with boldness and decisiveness to defeat the enemies who will not stop unless this nation acts to stop them.

The Crisis Crisis Crisis

Monday, October 26th, 2009

Rahm Emmanuel was quoted as saying that one should never allow a good crisis go to waste. The Obama administration’s declaration of a state of emergency over the H1N1 virus only proves that a good crisis is so essential that, in a (political) crisis, it may sometimes be necessary to manufacture one.

With sincere condolences to the families of the 5000 US residents who have lost their lives to H1N1, this is not a crisis. During the average year, 30,000 US citizens die from the current version of the influenza virus. To use H1N1 as a crisis is highly illustrative of the Obama administration’s willingness to manipulate national focus for their own political purpose; to distract the citizenry from their real agenda, which is the seizure of the health care industry and the adoption of the Copenhagen accord on climate change which will exhaust most of what is left of America’s wealth. Any government that would play upon the fears of its citizens in such a deceitful and malicious fashion must be viewed as what it is. This is the real crisis.

An interesting fact; the two Obama children have not, thus far, been immunized against H1N1. Why not?

Conservative Activist

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

I have been very busy of late engaged in some very conservative activities, also known as “work”. I will be getting back to this blog as soon as I am able but in the meantime, be sure to look for Lord Monkton’s remarks regarding the climate change treaty to be ratified by the world’s wealth re-distributors in December. Type his name into the You-Tube search. Then decide what you will do about it.

Peace in a Pod

Monday, October 12th, 2009

Once upon a time, as a congressman serving as one of the managers of the House Impeachment Committee, Lindsey Graham (now Senator Graham of South Carolina), stood in the well of the Senate and said “This is God’s country and He’s only going to allow so much”. I became an instant fan, but that was then. In the interim Senator Graham has been replaced by one of the “pod” people from “invasion of the Body Snatchers” fame. He apparently now believes that the God who will only allow so much cannot control the climate. We knew the senator was slipping when he fell head over heals for the morally tepid John McCain but now that he allied himself with John Kerry and Barbara Boxer, he has descended below the imaginable. When do the good people of South Carolina get to send this former JAG jackass out to pasture?

Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize

Friday, October 9th, 2009

With today’s surprise announcement, Obama and Jimmy Carter have one more thing in a long list of things in common. It is too ironic that both of these “peaceful” men have been honored by the trust created in the name of the fellow who invented high explosives, who added horrors heretofore unimagined to the art and science of war. But what can be expected of a nation awash in petro-dollars and drowning in guilt over their subsequent status as the richest nation, per capita, on earth. But Norwegians have always been such a peaceful folk, give or take a few centuries of senseless pillaging.

The New Theory of Relativity

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

It appears that the smartest man in the world is having a brain fade resulting in a free-fall in the approval ratings. Sadly, for him and for us, the TelePrompTer is not a crystal ball or a philosopher’s stone. Is it possible that the only people in America who are less gifted, intellectually, are those who voted for him? Is his charismatic luminescence merely the result of the relative dimwittedness of those with whom he has surrounded himself?

A Modest Proposal

Friday, October 2nd, 2009

October and Orange both begin with the letter “O”, as if that isn’t obvious (also beginning with “O”), as does Obama. It seems fitting to suggest that Americans don the color most associated with October (at least in the states where deer and elk are hunted) as a visible sign of protest against the overt and covert attempts, being made by Obama and his co-conspirators in the oligarchy, to overthrow the America that most of us know and love. Wearing orange now may prevent you from having to wear camo (if you can find it) later. Orange hats at Walmart are $3.00.
