As if most of didn't already know . . . .

Global Warming Is a Fraud

As I write, satellite data show that the mean global temperature is the same that it was in 1979.

Every year in the US, more than forty thousand people are killed in traffic accidents. But not one single person has ever been killed by global warming.

One reason is that the temperature data from weather stations appear to be hopelessly contaminated by urban heat effects.

Another cause of global warming hysteria is the infiltration of science by ideological zealots who place politics above truth.

While releasing a politicized report that prostitutes science to politics, the Obama administration simultaneously suppressed an internal EPA report that concluded there were "glaring inconsistencies" between the scientific data and the hypothesis that carbon dioxide emissions were changing the climate.

After the warm weather of the 1930s gave way to a cooling trend beginning in 1940, the media began speculating on the imminent arrival of a new Ice Age. We have now come full circle, mired in a hopeless cycle of reincarnated ignorance.

Marlin 1895

.45-70 - Marlin 1895 Stainless with Bushnell Trophy 1-4x with illuminated dot.

Just had to shoot a couple of reloaded rounds this evening. Remington 300 grain HP pushed by IMR 4198. (Scope was bore sighted by removing the bolt and using a 1" Shoot 'N See spot on the wall on the other end of the basement.) Because there has to be something to shoot at, a full 20 oz water bottle was put out about 30 yards. I could see the dot just to the right of the bottle when the rifle went off and then the bottle exploded. What's left of the bottle is right below the rifle. Set the windage a few clicks over and now what do I shoot at? Picked out a couple of stones laying out in the yard and they disappeared. Took a couple of shots for some of them. Six rounds was enough for today. Recoil doesn't hurt, it just lets you know it's there.

From a Mexican newspaper

The arrogance of them demanding the USA turn our country over to them?

El Sol de Mexico (Mexico City) 6/7/09

Claudia Carichi-Garcia a Mexican Senator of the “PRD” (Partido Revolucionario Democrático, a far left party) “demands the normalization of Mexican immigrants in the U.S.” During an interview on the issue of immigration reform, Corichi Garcia said that an integral migratory reform is needed so that it may normalize the immigration status of the approximately 12 million undocumented who work in U.S. territory, of whom some 7 million are Mexican, and to permit the orderly flow of the new immigrants. She pointed out that she will demand the U.S. Congress to de-penalize migration, such as was done in Mexico and that the reform respect individuals’ innate right to have freedom to move between countries. In relation to the just ended “inter-parliamentary reunion” between U.S. & Mexican congress members, held in Seattle, Mex. senator Rosario Green said that “on June 17 “they” (not specified) will meet with president Obama to reach an accord upon a migratory reform which would authorize work visas with all the labor related, legal and social rights for migrants, perhaps a temporary work program which will have nothing to do with the “Bracero” program.” Senator Rosario Green said that the only thing left is for the United States is to modify its Constitution and just mention a line – every migrant will be processed in accordance with his rights – because the word migrant is not included in that document.”
