Good Morning, AB.
A Crispy Morning to Y’all!
Looks like another DBM inspired guest list surprise/ surprise.
Doesn't matter we will unearth the real news of the week here as we always do.
Godo Morning All. AB, did you bring us back some Guiness?
Good Morning to you!
Good Morning! Very wet and rainy down here.
1. The pseudo-intellectuals fell for it because none of them ever cracked a science book.
2. The policy wonks fell for it because it gave the government more control.
3. The bleeding hearts fell for it because they always want to save the Earth.
4. The communists fell for it because it portrayed capitalists as destroying the Earth to make money.
5. The capitalists fell for it because they saw a new way to make money.
6. The Hollywood crowd fell for it because it made their pampered lives seem to have a meaning and purpose.
7. The newspapers fell for it because it was new.
8. The teachers fell for it because it was a new thing to teach the children to teach their parents.
9. The children fell for it because they wanted to show how well they are doing in school.
10. The parents fell for it because they wanted their children were doing so well in school and they wanted to be supportive.
11. The utility companies fell or it because they can raise rates.
12. The Nobel Peace Prize committee fell for it because Al Gore should have won in 2000.
13. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences fell for it because Al Gore should have won in 2000.
14. The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (Grammys) fell for it because Al Gore should have won in 2000.
15. The 30,000 scientists fell for it because while it was not in their field of study, they wanted to be supportive of science.
Good Morning, Rod! I think people are mostly conservative everywhere but don’t know it or shun the label. Having said that, I didn’t meet many professed ones, that’s for sure.
Global warming’s got their knickers all twisted, thanks to the BBC. Ireland has RTE (Radio & Television Eire) which is just as bad. People have been programed to believe Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW). They’ve been told any who dispute it are either dolts or in the thrall of big oil.
I had fun making very sound economic and scientific arguments against it.
Errr... I drank it.
All of it.
It was good though, sorry!
A smokin 9 degrees Fahrenheit. That's what I'm talkin' bout.
I'll be right over.
I keep searching for a story about "Obamaville" yesterday on NRO. But, can't find it so far. If anyone else knows where it is priceless stuff!
Story is about the fastest growing community in the US--- a section in the woods full of homeless critters. Just priceless, the DBM is bound to ignore it.
(I'm powered today by a couple of post anniversary mimosas this morning.)
Please give us some details while others show up and we are waiting for the shows.
Glad to have you back stateside.
Oooohhh... my condolences...
Of course they’re outnumbered, but at least we’ve an interesting mix of Pubbies today.
My doc says Guiness is good for you.
I can’t wait till Winter hits. (Global warming and all)
Another reason is people tend to see their generation or time as more significant than actually it is. That's why people like Tom Cruise and Julia Roberts win the “Best Actors of the 20th Century” contest and other such nonsense. The majority voting never heard of Sir Lawrence Olivier or Richard Burton, for example. I call this Chronoism or Temporism. Bias to ones’ own time.
Anyway, people have always enjoyed a good conspiracy or disaster story. The threat makes them feel more significant than they are.
Morning AB, weather finally cleared up in north central Florida. It has been dreary for most of last week. Looks like Health Care is on the menu, but senators are ready to talk about anything. Did you get any Irish lace?
What's a DBM - - Damn biased media?
Had swordfish and stone crab yesterday! Yummy time of year!
Glad you’re back with the Home team.
Back to read & lurk
DBM - commonly applied to Drive By Media, although your explanation of the acronym works just as well.
My buddys/radio partners went 11 for 17 on wahoo to 62 lbs. on Wed. quite a trip.
That news report about Obamaville was more concerned about the audacity of an unknown somebody putting up that sign than in the condition and causes for the tent city.
Good morning, Alas! You have returned.
most need serious attitude adjustments, even the ones purported to be of a ‘conservative bent’.....
....attitude adjustments can consist of placing offending pundits in a burlap sack and whacking them with 2X4s...........figuratively speaking of course...I would never condone violence (snicker)
I see Christian Roemer (or as I like to call her, Little Lotta) will be on today with her inappropriate giggling and non-informative comments.
LOL. I knew that was you before I got to the bottom of the post.
Sunday Morning Talk Shows - That amazing time of the week when people go on television to speak authoritatively and at length regarding subjects about which they know absolutely nothing.
"Well, we didn't know how bad things were. Tee-hee. There will probably be more unemployment, chuckle. Yes, we do owe trillions, but we will make it all back with green jobs. Ha-ha."
I will make an exception for Inhofe, however, who has spent years studying this stuff and knows what he's talking about. HE won't tell us the core of the earth is "several million degrees!"
Personally, I see a lot of "BS" degrees... :)
Honestly, the people who are the most vocal about this climate change stuff are the exact same ones who make GIANT PUPPETS. THAT should tell us all we need to know!
McCaskill says we are doing healthcare ‘to bring down costs’.
Is there a live stream of MTP anywhere we can access?
My BS degree is in Political Science, which lends itself to all kinds of jokes.
