Global Warming Killer?

Kofi Annan says global warming is a silent killer of 300,000 per year and it's increasing. He cites a report that says, "The report claims that 90 percent of the deaths are related to gradual environmental degradation caused by a warming climate, which exacerbates existing threats — mainly malnutrition, diarrhea and malaria."

I have three little letters for you Mr. Annan. DDT. That miracle pesticide that is absolutely harmless but was demonized by Rachel Carson using false and misleading data.

I question the veracity of that report though. Global warming (if it really exists and I don't believe it does) should create more farmable land should increase food production and more people would get fed. Also, if 300,000 people in underdeveloped countries were really dying per year from global warming, the existing food supply would be seen as a net increase.

As for global warming, I think Kofi Annan, among others, is full of hot air!

Choosing The Wrong Target

An idiotic Washington D.C. council member named Jim Graham is, as the this article says, "cracking down" on selling pizza by the slice late at night in D.C. neighborhoods. Apparently D.C. residents remain hungry long in to the night since some of these place stay open until 4:30 AM and there is some violence here and there late at night. The councilman admits that the eateries are operating legally but they have become a nuisance. Is this guy really so stupid that he thinks that stopping late night pizza sales will reduce crime? Is he so stupid that he doesn't understand that maybe it's the criminals responsible for crime, not the pizza shop owner? Is he such a blithering idiot that he cannot see the root causes of crime and must go after private businesses that are legally serving a customer base?

If I were these pizza shop owners, I'd pick a representative to have a meeting with this guy and offer him a bribe (campaign contribution) to drop the legislation. The kicker is, they'd get the whole thing on tape and destroy him at the next city council meeting.

Yes Jim Graham, you are STUPID! Why don't you figure out the real problem and address it that way!

An Abortion Candidate

This article doesn't mention that abortion was recommended to this mother but it does say that doctors didn't expect this girl (now 6 years) old to survive birth because many of her organs weren't in the right place, she has 5 spleens, two left lungs, etc.

I could almost bet that the doctors, and many friends and family recommended that the mother abort the baby rather than suffer the pain of very short life, etc.

So far the girl has survived 6 years long than expected and seems to be in good health. Who knows how long she'll survive. Even if she doesn't lead a "normal" life as we would call it, no doubt she's brought joy to the life of her parents (ok, it only mentions mom in the article) and those around her and probably even her doctors. People who survive difficult conditions really seem to inspire us. She is a shining example of God's grace and the miracle of life.

**Note to evolutionists: This girl has a genetic disorder, a mutation. Mutations are always destructive, not improvements. Or perhaps you might think that evolution is selecting that we now need multiple spleens and our organs belong in different places. Oh wait, she'll probably never have kids so she can't pass on the traits.

Treating Them Like Children

More proof that the democrats see much of their constituency as children.

High-ranking House Democrats are urging the Treasury Department to prop up minority-owned broadcasters suffering from a lack of capital and lost advertising revenue amid the economic slump.

To the liberal-left elite, minorities, women and any other group except white males are to be treated by children who cannot make their own way and require government help. If broadcasters are failing, they're failing. Why should the taxpayers provide money to a PRIVATE BUSINESS that isn't generating enough revenue to continue operations. I don't care who owns the business, there is simply no Constitutional authority for the government to keep any business from failing.

Oh.. I amend my statement above. White, male bankers and automotive executives are also children.

I almost ran over a puppy today. A little black one. Fortunately, he made it across safely.

Malibu is a very nice place but it's so difficult to get to. You can take the canyon roads from the freeways north of Los Angeles or you can take Pacific Coast Highway from the 10 freeway. Traffic there is always beastly. I'm guessing a lot of people that live there, hardly ever leave. But if you're going to live in a place that's tough to get in and out of, that's the place to be!

It would be fun to start a rumor that a cell phone virus is going around that sends a silent signal to your brain to produce a real virus. It would take a lot of work to create fake scientific studies, etc. and I really just don't have that kind of time.

I know, I need to get back to The Federalist Papers. #7 is a bit boring and much like #6 so I've been putting it off.

It's been reported that my recent blog post about voting actually swayed someone's opinion in my direction. Imagine that!
