We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

The earth is cooling off (especially here right now). They say it's just going to be a 20-50 year blip - but they did not predict this. So what good are their computer models at prediction? I would submit that they are not half as good as economic models at prediction - and theirs stink too. Only difference is that economists do not claim that their computer models are accurate at prediction.
We may never know much about Obama the Man, but I believe we now know enough about Obama the President, despite his efforts to hide: he is a statist of the far Left, who wants to implement a statist Leftist agenda for America both domestically and in foreign affairs, and he will do everything he can to achieve these goals.
I never try to analyze people I don't know. I just go by their actions.
Global warming people are not doing science. They're building models, which means pulling equations out of their asses because the actual physics equations are too hard to solve (Navier Stokes equations).
So the debate is between model builders and model deniers.
Neither side is doing science, but one side is at least pointing that out.
"They say it's just going to be a 20-50 year blip - but they did not predict this. So what good are their computer models at prediction?"
Hey, the models are fine, it is reality that is out of whack. Back in the late 1950s I used to build model cars - loved using them to do the shopping, get Dad to work, and all that. Lots cheaper than the real things, too!
I keep pointing out that modern Chaos Theory was initiated by a meteorologist [Lorenz] who realised computer models of climate could never be much better than "close, but no cigar" predictors.
Obama the President, as a statist leftist determined to transfrom the nation he says he loves into one that most of us will hate, tells us all we really need to know about Obama the man. He may be kind to his children, adoring to his wife, gentle with the dog -- but he's ready to lie, cheat and steal for his agenda. His agenda happens to be bad for my wife, my children, and my dog.
Michelle Obama nailed it when she said" He hasn't done anything yet". Even more amazing that he started writing his memoirs at 34...It is truly Hitleresque. I think Hitler wrote Mein Kampf at about that age...IMHO Obama has a narcissist complex as great as Hitler's, and we know how that ended...
Look carefully at that picture at the top of the post. Take a good look at the boy behind the flowers. I swear, that kid is popping an egg. Papa Barry so much as hinted he'd drop his shorts, bend over, and squeal like a pig as the other children screamed, "Me next, Mr. President, me next!"
What we're seeing there is an Obama engendered spontaneous sex change.
