True Colors of the Season




The two colors most widely associated with Christmas (in the Western hemisphere, at least) are red and green. Well, as the guys at Acton keep reminding us, Green is the new RED.


Of course, there's plenty of green to be made by going Green. Al is raking it in since being run out of politics. Hey...jet fuel is expensive, gang. More than that, he needs capital for his start-up cap-n-trade system. And he has to have hush money available for when the scientists start finding serious holes in his Armageddon scenarios. (especially when it's contrary to his "established fact of man-made warming in the last century")


Look...Al is a creative guy. I'll bet that if he wasn't trying to save the world or invent the internet, he could have single-handedly scabbed the Screenwriter's Guild walk-out. But his creativity (er...divinity? PRAISE THE GORACLE!!!) needs to cool it. This global warming nonsense is going to cost developing nations their chance at making the earth a suitable habitat for mankind.

UPDATE: Just to be clear, I also hate it when corporations try to pander to Christians with crappy products. They hope that making some relationship to Christianity is going to fuel sales. Unfortunately - as is the case for the minute-ecocrusaders - Christians are in lines waiting to hand their green over for the pap as well. sigh....

Christmas seems to be the most bothersome time to be involved with a church session.

Don't try to get anybody to live up to their Christian duty or their covenants with the Church...it's CHRISTMAS after all!

And just think, he was this close to being president.

We've had some real winning candidates since 2000. (I've never liked Bush and voted against him both times) And they just keep coming out of the woodwork. I didn't think it was possible to have... what?... 17 candidates at one point for the presidency and still see no one that I want within 10 feet of the presidency. Although Huckabee has emerged I guess as a possibility.

BTW - I heard that the global temperature has been static for 6 years. That won't mess Gore up for awhile yet then he can panic about Global Cooling.
