Public Letter to My Betters

I just checked my online balance at the bank. It looks as though Congress' "let's get re-elected through buying votes from the hoi polloi" faction has used the police power of the state to take profits away from you and give them to me as a "stimulus package." I can't say that it won't come in handy with all the recent expenses of buying a new home, paying for a new baby, homeschooling my children, etc. But I still think it's not right - especially since Congress tries to play as though they've been generous with their own money.

If you want to stimulate an economy, the least effective way is this so-called stimulus package. This takes money that has been generated by hard-working business people (at a rate that is the highest of all developed nations) and gives it to people who are less productive (or in my case, had no federal tax burden). It is sinful, the way this government takes the earnings of citizens at the point of a legislative and litigious gun. If you want an economy to grow (more jobs, more production, and more consumption), it makes much more sense to make more money available to those who have proven that they know what to do with money. That's a biblical principle that shows true again and again.

Anyway, thanks to my generous employers (and entrepreneurs like them who are penalized by Congress for being productive) for this leg up. I'll conclude with Sir Winston Churchill's famous dictum
"Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time."

Precipitous Climate Change

Unfortunately for the greenie-weenies (the ones who want to strip you of your freedoms under the aegis of representing Gaea) that change is coming in the form of a rapid cool-off of the planet. This is in spite of increased levels of carbon in the atmosphere.

Here's a chart showing the rapid drop:

Why? Some want to say that the anomaly is due to La Nina. Well...that might be part of the answer. But if you really want to see something scary, look at the Sun. It looks like a new-born babe. That's bad, folks. The sun should look like a pimply teenager, dotted with sunspots. And as geophysicist, astronautical engineer, and NASA Astronaut Phil Chapman reports, that's extremely bad news indeed.

An old flame of mine who happens to be a PhD astrophysicist specializing in solar physics has told me that she's concerned about her observations of decreasing solar-magnetic activity. While we had been in an expected cyclical upspike (as documented in Dennis Avery's Unstoppable Global Warming), it's now time to get ready for a mini-ice-age. It's that scary, folks.

It's really not as hard as you think. On the right, we don't accept everything they say. You don't have to, either.

As requested, I've worked my Photoshop-phu on that Bizarro pic so descriptive of the PCUSA's GAPJC ruling on the Janie Spahr case. (Okay...this wasn't done out of a sense of camaraderie. I was just feeling left out when Holston Presbytery endorsed minister, John Shuck, started name-calling.)

Shouldn't you just go ahead and rename the organization the Presbyterian Smirch?
