Dems Cancel Copenhagen Trip

Dems Cancel Copenhagen Trip



Socializing another huge chunk of the U.S. economy is more important than saving the planet:

Senator John Kerry, Democrat of Massachusetts and chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, told colleagues on Saturday that Democrats could not send a delegation to the United Nations climate change conference in Copenhagen.

“It doesn’t look like we’re going -– not as a delegation,” Mr. Kerry told colleagues as a he left the Senate chamber after a vote on a package of spending measures. “Harry needs the people here on health care.”

Harry is the Senate majority leader, Harry Reid of Nevada, and to say that Mr. Reid needs his caucus members in Washington for the health care debate is an understatement.

Several senators had hoped to attend the conference, including Barbara Boxer of California, the chairwoman of the Environment and Public Works Committee, and many members of her panel.

So it seems like Hanoi John, (hey John, some of us are still waiting for you to issue your military release form)... has come to a conclusion that he is needed more in the Capital for the next week then for him to help champion his global warming support in Copenhagen Denmark. I am sure he is not concerned that his wife and himself might freeze their what ever off as the temperatures will plunge in that city in the next few days. Perhaps he might be worried she might freeze to death if they are caught in a blizzard or their limo was to crap out as the temps dropped into the low teens, as she slugged away on the bottle and slowly let all her heat out. Then again. If she kicks the bucket. Surely he is in store for millions and millions.... then again. Maybe not. Anyway. It seems like as usual anytime the going gets tough, Hanoi John finds excuses to part from the scene.

Global warming used to look like a shoe-in, but Climategate has turned it into a war.

As always, John Kerry spins his boat around and heads away from the shooting as fast as possible.

He will still nominate himself for a global warming medal though.

Actually there was a posted thread earlier tonight that there would be record cold weather in Copenhagen awaiting the arrival of Kerry and his entourage.

Perhaps he had the opportunity to read that.

"There is no “Global Warming”"
I for one have known this for some fifteen years plus. My elder very well informed quantum mechanist, petroleum chemist, biochem and physical chem and nuclear magnetic spectroscopist chemist brother and I have had lets say talks over dinners as well well as others in engineering, physics, and chemistry, at Bell Labs long before it was any form of an issue.
It is all pardon my French. Horse shit, not backed by any solid science, as hopefully growing numbers of people are discovering.

I'm aware of the early report for the 17 degree drop, I mentioned it in some other threads, but surely thanks for reminding us all, things are not going well in the land of dikes. What they need is a full blown week long snow blizzard with low temps dropping into the zero range or lower at night.
What the hell. The good people of Canada, upper USA, Asia are all how freezing, why should they remain sheltered.
A storm so bad that zero's plane must be turned around and returned to Andrews AFB would not be a bad idea as well.
The shit heads that should be in jail cells years back must finally be challenged. The scientist that went along with this long term fiasco as well as all the greedy politicians and world makers and yes, many in key industries that will lie through their teeth in advertisements to bulge their private investments. None are in any way honorable in the least.

I'm sorry. I should have been a bit more clear. I mostly go from what our Swift Boat honorable hero's had to say over a period of time.
I was referring to when Hanoi John threw a hand grenade into a storage bin of rice, perhaps trying to be cute, then later as he received a shrapnel wound from it on the foot or leg ended up getting a purple heart. Please correct me if I am ill informed on that particular incident.

But of course you are right. Not only for what you mention to be true, but for all the really horrible things these type clowns on the left, driven by communists and socialists principles would have befallen on this Republic. Sadly. However. It is also people with no real ideology in particular that are driven by pure greed to become filthy rich at the expense of others. Those in some industries that move to the top, forget their humble origins, forget a strong free democratic, well governed United States is good for all. A place where honest free enterprise principles, self regulating with country first in mind, can allow for many to realize the long held hope many of us have labeled the American dream. Advance within the bounds of the laws, according to ones abilities and talents.
To many would suck the life out of this approaching divine principle where so many have realized the blessing through hard work, and suck the cream off the top at the expense of all in this juncture in time. It is a sad state of affairs.
IMHO, it really has been going on for a long time. To many in America as well as the rest of the free westernized nations have for to long been ill informed at those that control things at the top, money (banks for one, as well as huge industrial complexes), to the extent many in governments world wide have partook of the evil fruits of self enrichment through deals of all sorts at all levels.
Perhaps at least for a while. This newest scam, AGW shall be hog tied. We shall see in the next few years if things can be slightly improved on many fronts.

I'm saying....I've not first hand, nor second hand info.

But I'd bet a week's pay...the guy got fragged for one of his Purple Hearts...

Did he "do" himself...Of course he did also...Maybe after a failed attempt by his "shipmates" he decided to fragg himself?? Nothing would surprise me with this traitor of the USA.

You know it...and I know it...in our guts.

It does get very cold in Denmark - and a damp cold. Ladies do not wear legs with only nylons as they freeze to the skin.

However, according to my native Copenhagen friend, they don’t normally get much snow.

So wouldn’t it be sweet if they got a real blowing, pile high blizzard - the 100 year cycle kind?

I can dream - maybe if we all concentrate...

We have witness from his ship mates the clown almost blew himself up trying to be a cute ass, then received a purple heart, when he supposedly through a grenade into a pile of rice. And people who where on those river cruises witness to the fact the clown blew away a fleeing un-armed goon with the fifty mount located on his craft one time he approached the shore line when enemy where spotted. I was not there. I just believe what those from the swift boat group had to say about this clown. I believe each of them as being honorable navy officers and enlisted verse the clown that married a drunken multi-millionare to keep himself well stock for life.

That my friend is what I have been yapping about for the past week plus on a number of threads. I don't want to hear about the poor drunks and otherwise freezing to death.... but a full multiple week snow blizzard with extreme low temp drops might help to quench their socialistic/communistic/one world take over vigor. Let the bastards freeze their asses off, pardon my quite eloquent French.
Let the fools experience what the good folks of Canada and the upper United States experience every year and it gets worse, along with the Asian continent, and now the lower southern hemisphere. Snow the second week in summer in lower Australia. It this indicative of a accelerated global warming scenario. Hardly.

I also happen to think the Ass-h$$e got fragged by his own men...somewhere along the line.

To get rid of the dangerous dumb-ass A-Ho9e.

And it's quite possible Johnny Heinz....new he was a "friendly target"...and fragged himself.

I will never put it past him.

In all you say I give you a second motion. The guy is a useless piece of shit pardon my French. And very dangerous at that. I in no way was presenting an argument to you. The only thing might be, he would not thought of harming himself directly to receive purple hearts. The guy is most likely the lowest of cowards and afraid of having his skin pricked, let along have to bleed. At any rate. It is past my bed time. I have to hit the sack shortly. I will respond if you feel we must elaborate further on this useless POS.

Will. You got my attention before I sign off. I have to hit the sack. I am very aware of every thing going on for many years within our country on this issue. I am with you in your sentiments (well founded). Perhaps some of our Republican Senators along with Senator Inholfe will be able to shame the rest of the Senate with some solid facts and keep at least our Senate from continuing to be solid assholes and anti-American, as well as totally ill informed on all issues relating to AGW and for that matter the whole GW scam, since it is simply that. The sun cycles, 11, 22, etc., deep outer space radiation bombardment on the upper atmosphere, (I am being very brief as well as generic), and solar motions of the earth ...wobble.... it gets very complicated.............show us there is no simply cause and effect for global warming and global cooling during each phase of each on earth.
It is high time all the assholes on the Hill are brought into at least a simple educations, and somehow, not sure we can stop the clowns within the EPA and elsewhere among the zero crowed to back off.
Easier said then done. Again. Appreciate your input. But I really have to sign off and get some sleep in preparations to work till 11PM tomorrow.
Do have a great upcoming day.

On May 18, 1910, Halley's Comet transited the Sun's disk, and the Earth actually passed through its tail. At the time, the comet's tail was thought to contain poisonous-levels of cyanogen and gas. The popular media picked up this fact and wove sensational tales of mass cyanide poisoning engulfing the planet. In reality, of course, the gas is so diffuse that the world suffered no ill-effects from the passage through the tail.

We have also “survived”:

"The Population Bomb" (although the author's 1968 prediction that hundreds of millions of deaths in the 1980s due to famine didn't come true, he DID sell 2 million books — cha-ching!)
Global Cooling (popularized by Newsweek's 1975 “The Cooling World” article, although the world's polar bear population has increased five-fold since then, the new Ice Age seems to have been grossly overestimated ... OR was it just simply delayed until now, hmmmm?!)
Killer Bees (remember in the 1978 movie “The Swarm” when the nuclear power plant exploded near Houston after bees invaded the control room? LOL)
The Jupiter Effect (March 1982 passed with no massive gravitational shift on earth causing massive tectonic shifts, although Michael Jackson rocked the world with “Thriller”)
Y2K (Even Dick Clark flinched a little bit when that ball dropped at midnight)
Swine Flu (So ... Obama didn't actually need that Squalene-fortified H1N1 vaccination, after all?)
— etc


Some things never change ...

Scientists give the reporters the headlines they want.

Reporters give the scientists the attention they crave.

Correct, you weren’t there. And, like many who weren’t there, you have managed to come up with observations made by NO ONE who was there.

I was there. And I, along with the 24-25 others who were there, have never said the guy Kerry killed was unarmed. In fact, he had a B-40.

No one has said he was shot by the twin-50. In fact, that guy was wounded in the leg by the forward M-60, as mentioned in the after-action report. He was able to get up and run. When shot by Kerry he was turned back toward the boat.
