Good News: No Al Gore in Obama Administration

“Former Vice President Gore does not intend to seek or accept any formal position in government,” Gore spokeswoman Kalee Kreider said. “He feels very strong right now that the best thing for him to do is to build support for the bold changes that we have to make to solve the climate crisis.” Finally, some good news. Al Gore will not be the Climate Czar for the Obama administration. Let me be the first to say Thank Goodness. I don’t think I could stand Al Gore becoming relevant again and, besides, Al Gore’s proficiency at producing boredom is far more

And they wonder why they can’t win people over…

Seems the “NO ON PROP 8” supporters have been protesting and even fighting with police out in California. The protesters where disruptive enough that the Los Angeles Police Department had to declare a tactical alert which requires all available officers, including some from other precincts, to respond. Fox News even labeled it “rioting“, though that seems a bit excessive considering only a couple people were arrested and there doesn’t seem to be any property damage or injuries at this point… Here’s a link to the video, judge for yourself. Either way this is pathetic on the part of the gay

Is the University of California about to destroy its own standards?

UPDATE: Soros and Ayres behind the group pushing the destruction of UC’s standards It would seem so as the University of California Board of Regents is proposing the elimination of the SAT subject test as an admissions requirement. The SAT subject tests asses how well a student performs in 20 different subjects ranging from advanced mathematics to language skills. This part of the SATs have become an important part of admissions at nearly all American colleges and universities. In fact, the Dean of admissions for Harvard has said that subject tests are “Better predictors than either high school grades or

Shocking degradation we all must fight against

First and foremost is the case of this video from Students for Life of America where they get Planned Parenthood to admit that they perform infanticide: Please donate to them and help Students for Life fight infanticide and abortion if you are able. The second case of shocking degradation is brought to us by our old media friends at the Los Angeles Times. You see, the LA Times happens to have a tape of Barack Obama giving a toast to terrorist mouthpiece Rashid Khalidi during a farewell diner in Khalidi’s honor back in 2003. Sounds like a huge news story

The Supreme Court is perfectly ok with voter fraud in Ohio… (the Court’s opinion included)

Or so it would seem, at first, as they granted her a stay on having to implement a system to prevent voter fraud. (Malkin found it first) Here is the extremely short opinion of the court (link to official site for latest Supreme Court opinions): On October 9, 2008, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio entered a temporary re-straining order (TRO) directing Jennifer Brunner, theOhio Secretary of State, to update Ohio’s Statewide Voter Registration Database (SWVRD) to comply with Section 303 of the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA), 116 Stat. 1708, 42 U.

It’s the end of the world! Oh wait…

No its not. Not even close. Yea the 778 point drop in the Dow is terrible, its even the biggest point drop ever according to CNN. But that sure as heck doesn’t mean we are headed for another great depression. Consider this, while the 778 point loss is the biggest point loss in history it is only about a 7% loss. Compare that to the stock market crash of 1987 where there was a 508 point drop which accounted for a massive 22.6% loss and there was no long drawn out depression which followed that incredible crash was there? But,

Congress finally gets oil drilling right, by doing nothing.

It took forever but Congress has finally caved and will not stop new drilling for off-shore oil. Good news I’d say. But, of course, as anybody who knows anything about government can tell you, there is still a mile of red tape to get through before anybody can actually go and actually drill for oil offshore. The biggest problem is in getting congress to pass a revenue sharing bill which cuts the states in on the money that drilling will enevitably bring in. Until then its doubtfull that the states will allow any drilling… But I’m hopeful. After all this
