FIRST… do you know what ANWR is?
ANWR = Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Now… A comparison
And some perspective…
NOTE WHERE THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT AREA IS…
(it’s in the “ANWR Coastal Plain”)
THIS IS WHAT THE DEMOCRATS, LIBERALS AND “GREENS” SHOW YOU WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT ANWR
…and they are right… these ARE photographs of ANWR
ISN’T ANWR BEAUTIFUL? WHY SHOULD WE DRILL HERE (AND DESTROY) THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE?
WELL… THAT’S NOT EXACTLY THE TRUTH
Do you remember the map?
The map showed that the proposed drilling area is in the ANWR Coastal Plain
Do those photographs look like a coastal plain to you?
WHAT’S GOING ON HERE?
THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE…
THAT IS NOT WHERE THEY ARE WANTING TO DRILL!
THIS IS WHAT THE PROPOSED EXPLORATION AREA ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE IN THE WINTER
AND THIS IS WHAT IT ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE IN THE SUMMER
HERE ARE A COUPLE SCREEN SHOTS FROM GOOGLE EARTH
AS YOU CAN SEE, THE AREA WHERE THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT DRILLING IS A BARREN WASTELAND.
OH… AND THEY SAY THAT THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE EFFECT ON THE LOCAL WILDLIFE…
HERE IS A PHOTO (SHOT DURING THE SUMMER) OF THE
“DEPLETED WILDLIFE” SITUATION CREATED BY
DRILLING AROUND PRUDHOE BAY *…
DON’T YOU THINK THAT THE CARIBOU REALLY HATE THAT DRILLING?
HERE’S THAT SAME SPOT DURING THE WINTER.
HEY, THIS BEAR SEEMS TO REALLY HATE THE PIPELINE NEAR PRUDHOE BAY *…
*The Prudhoe bay area accounts for 17% of U.S. domestic oil production
NOW, WHY DO YOU THINK THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE LYING ABOUT ANWR?
REMEMBER WHEN AL GORE SAID THAT
THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD WORK TO ARTIFICIALLY RAISE GAS PRICES
TO $5.00 A GALLON?
AL GORE AND HIS FELLOW DEMOCRATS HAVE ALMOST REACHED THEIR GOAL!
NOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN LYING,
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
YOU CAN START BY FORWARDING THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW…
SO THAT THEY WILL KNOW THE TRUTH

At the risk of being accused of “racism” for not falling in line behind the first half-black but wholly unqualified man ever to run for president, allow me to introduce the useful idiots at the core of Obamamania.
Barack Hussein Obama, the Jim (Farrakhan) Jones of the 2008 race for the White House, and chosen Messiah of America’s loony leftist dingbats, is leading the race for the most powerful office on earth. The “How?” is the interesting part of the story…
As if we have not already seen enough evidence of ill-informed political lunacy surrounding the anointment process of the chosen one, Obama useful idiots have found a new way to demonstrate their gross youthful ignorance.
In a June 29, New York Times article titled Obama Supporters Take His Middle Name as Their Own, Jodi Kantor interviews several Columbus Ohio Obama sycophants who have decided to adopt Obama’s middle name, Hussein, as their own, as a demonstration of solidarity with their Messiah of change.
Kantor writes, “Emily Nordling has never met a Muslim, at least not to her knowledge. But this spring, Ms. Nordling, a 19-year-old student from Fort Thomas, Ky., gave herself a new middle name on “More articles about Facebook.” Facebook.com, mimicking her boyfriend and shocking her father. “Emily Hussein Nordling,” her entry now reads.”
Like most loony leftists, the fact that Nordling has admittedly never even met a Muslim does not in any way impede her sense of personal expertise on the subject of Islam, Muslim jihad, Obama or even what her new chosen middle name, Hussein, implies…
According to the “ New Husseins”, “I am sick of Republicans pronouncing Barack Obama’s name like it was some sort of cuss word,” Mr. Strabone wrote in a manifesto titled “We Are All Hussein” that he posted on his own blog and on dailykos.com.
Mr. Obama is a Christian, not a Muslim. Hussein is a family name inherited from a Kenyan father he barely knew, who was born a Muslim and died an atheist. But the name has become a political liability. Some critics on cable television talk shows dwell on it, while others, on blogs or in e-mail messages, use it to falsely assert that Mr. Obama is a Muslim or, more fantastically, a terrorist.
This is a perfect example of why America might want to consider raising the legal voting age to those who have had to balance a household budget, make their first car payment, or wipe their own nose…before allowing them a voice in the running of a nation they clearly haven’t the faintest idea about.
A trip to left-wing blogs Democratic Underground or the Dailykos will provide a spine-chilling glimpse at just how ill-informed and anti-American the “New Hussein” crowd is today. It will also evidence what kinds of mindless garbage are being spoon-fed to our nation’s youth on college campuses across this nation.
A Chicago Tribune column on the same topic notes, “Mark Elrod, a political science professor at Harding University in Searcy, Ark., is organizing students and friends to declare their Husseinhood on Facebook on Aug. 4, Obama’s birthday.” Nordling states, “When her father saw her new online moniker, he was incredulous.”He actually thought I was going to convert to Islam.” Yes, as the name “Hussein” is of Muslim descent, why would one think anything else?
The lunacy is in the fact that Nordling and her fellow useful idiots are unable to make the same connections concerning the name Hussein or their hero, Obamessiah.
Obama Kool-Aid drinkers have demonstrated a continuous pattern of overlooking the obvious, failing to make even the most basic connections or ask even the most obvious questions before climbing aboard the Obamessiah train headed for slaughter.
The New York Times column points out, “Ms. Miller and her fellow new Husseins are embracing the traditionally Muslim name even as the Obama campaign shies away from Muslim associations. Campaign workers ushered two women in head scarves out of a camera’s range at a rally this month in Detroit.”
When even a left-wing rag like the Times is dumbfounded by the actions of their regular leftist readers, you know something has gone horribly awry…
Obama supporters give all new meaning to the term useful idiots. But they have a vote just the same, and that should worry EVERY American.
The open question is; are there enough useful idiots in America to secure the Oval Office for the least qualified candidate ever to seek that office in U.S. history? We will soon know the answer to this question. In the meantime, the rest of America had better return to daily prayer!

Kudos to John L. Daly, who has written a very interesting study of ice at the North Pole. Global Warmists are once again observing cyclical changes and declaring them “proof” of the dire effects of global warming.

…both the extent and thickness of Arctic sea ice is certainly subject to variation. But it would be a mistake to assume that a brief period during which the Arctic is in a thinning cycle is anything more than that – a cycle. We know from past history that it has been subject to earlier retreats as suggested by the opening quote from 1817.Part of the problem lay in the fact that useful data on ice extent and thickness only dates from the 1950s, yet our temperature record from Jan Mayen Island at the edge of the Arctic shows that the Arctic was warmer during the 1930s than it was during the 1990s. Unfortunately there is no comprehensive ice data from the 1930s. Instead such data begins in the late 1950s, at a time when the Arctic was entering into the grip of a known cold spell. As that cold period ended, it is hardly surprising to find thinner ice during the latter warmer period. [….]The limits on the thickness of Arctic ice are determined by how low the air temperature can get, and on how warm and fast-moving the subsurface water is. Air temperatures measured in the Arctic region show no recent warming, thus discounting the possibility that recent thinning of ice could be caused by atmospheric warming above the ice. Rather, the thinning of ice in the 1990s is clearly associated with a warming of the sub-surface ocean, as shown by the SCICEX data, caused in whole or in part by the strong NAO [North Atlantic Oscillation — ocean current change] increasing the flow rate of Atlantic water into the Arctic Ocean.
There is nothing in the data to suggest anything but natural cycles at work.
Sweetheart mortgage loans to Senators are much in the news of late, with calls for increased scrutiny of the solons’ dealings with their mortgage lenders. In this spirit, I took a look at some of the publicly available information on Senator and Mrs. Obama’s mortgage, obtained in 2005 when they purchased their mansion in Chicago’s upscale Hyde Park district.
The Obama’s declared mortgage interest deductions on their tax returns of $32,418 for 2005, $60,449 for 2006, and $57,838 for 2007. But their Northern Trust loan at the terms stated would have generated interest payments of about $30,871 for 2005, $73,395 for 2006 and $72,368 for 2007. For 2005, there would have been additional interest payments for their Hyde Park Condo which they sold on April 29, 2005 so even the 2005 deducted amount is low. They have apparently not been able to deduct the excess.
