News Notes. Blue v. Red, Subtitle For Story #2: It’s All Relative, Clonus Horror v. The Island

August 25, 2005

First: When I read this headline on Drudge: Federal Judge OKs Global Warming Lawsuit, My first thought was: This has to be in California. Surprise! It was San Francisco specifically. Where else would you find a whacked out liberal nut job judge (U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White) who would rule on something like this? Just what we need judge, more rulings to hurt US business, making it easier for nation/state backed businesses (China, India, any company in S. America) to roll right over us.

Of course, those suing are also nut job organizations like greenpeace and friend of the earth. I would pay to go on a whaling vessel or seal hunt, just so I could pilot the ship into the hippies, destroying as many as possible.

It’s time to end this activist judicial system (ie: 9th Cir. and others in California) and clean house for everyone.
As much as I thought the “Blue” states were freaks for screaming secession, we’re leaving the country, not my president, blah, blah, etc., I think I’m finally in agreement with them. My idea is that we split the states, and the Constitution is the law for both Red and Blue states. All states will be divided according to last year’s Presidential vote. Two new countries will be set up: USA Red, and USA Blue. Immigrants not happy in a Red or Blue State may go to the other. Everyone is free to pick the area they wish to live. Both will honor the other’s sovrenty, and have open trade, just like it is now. But, after the split, it’s a free-for-all with how you rule yourself. Change or keep whatever you did not like, or liked in former laws of the land. Red States will more than likely keep the Constitution as it is written, and strictly interpret its laws. The Blue States will no doubt decide that the Constitution is out of date and needs to be changed to reflect a more liberal and tolerant society.

It’s also my wild guess that after 5 years of this, the birth rate in Blue States will be 10% or lower, and they will not have a standing military, because it’s wrong and evil. Why should they worry? They are now part of the solution to all the ills a Capitalist society brings. I’m sure they’d think that way until they were invaded by some backwater Latin American country looking to expand its GDP with cheap hippy slave labor. Then the Red States would have to go in with our trained, equipped, and prepared armed forces and rescue the granola munchers from their Che Guevara nightmare. Or would we?

A federal judge here said environmental groups and four U.S. cities can sue federal development agencies on allegations the overseas projects they financially back contribute to global warming.

The decision Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White is the first to say that groups alleging global warming have a right to sue.

“This is the first decision in the country to say that climate change causes sufficient injury to give a plaintiff standing, to open the courthouse door,” said Ronald Shems, a Vermont attorney representing Friends of the Earth.

That group, in addition to Greenpeace and the cities of Boulder, Colo., Santa Monica, Oakland and Arcata, Calif., sued Overseas Private Investment Corp. and the Export-Import Bank of the United States. Those government agencies provide loans and insure billions of dollars of U.S. investors’ money for development projects overseas. Many of the projects are power plants that emit greenhouses gases that the groups allege cause global warming.

Freakin’ nuts!

NEXT: It’s all relative. The one thing I do not do, no matter who is POTUS, is bitch about their travel expenses or vacation time. If it were up to me, no matter what party the prez was from, he could work in a bathrobe and slippers, or fly Airforce One 24/7/365, and I would not care. Think about the most stressful job you ever had, and multiply that by a factor of 1000, and maybe you come close to a 1/4 of what every prez goes through daily. The worst part about it… The job does not end at 5:00, and you do not get weekends off. There’s always someone around you: staff, advisors, Secret Service, etc.

The next story is nothing more than a hit job on Bush trying to paint him as wasteful leader. The nation’s media moans about the cost of fuel, and how terrible it is that Bush would ever consider leaving the White House. Thanks to Drudge, and others, it is also possible to look back on Clinton and Gore, and the trips they, and other president’s had.

Of All Gas Consumers, Bush May Be Biggest

Getting President Bush from here to there consumes an enormous amount of fuel, whether he’s aboard Air Force One, riding in a helicopter or on the ground in a heavily armored limousine. The bill gets steeper every day as the White House is rocked by the same energy prices as regular drivers. Taxpayers still foot the bill.

Almost every vehicle Bush uses is custom-made to add security and communications capabilities, and the heavier weight of these guzzlers further drives up gas and jet fuel costs.

And now, a look at the other side:

To date, President Clinton has taken a record-breaking 32 trips to 78 countries (including 51 different ones) with trips to South Korea, Japan, and Malaysia planned for later this year. Evidently, Clinton’s solution to President Bush’s travel was to visit not only Littleton, New Hampshire, but Liechtenstein — and everywhere else in between.

And from the Drudge Flash archives:

Applause filed the halls of the Kyoto International Conference Center. “We
must achieve a safe overall concentration level for greenhouse gases in the
Earth’s atmosphere.”

The message is serious. So serious in fact, the DRUDGE REPORT has
calculated that Vice President Al Gore is burning more than 439,500 pounds
of fuel, or 65,600 gallons, at a cost of more than $131,000 on his 16,000
mile daytrip, just to deliver the warning.

Again I say: I don’t care. But the MSM can’t wait to tear Bush down. Then, of course, someone has to check the facts they miss or misstate. Can’t find a scandal? Invent one with how a sentence is worded. Jennifer Loven (author of the AP post on Bush) you’re a putz, and so are 99% of the fellow “jounalists” (I use that word loosely) you call your collegues.

Finally: Cloning.

  • For the first time ever, two unrelated clones of cat have bred naturally to produce healthy babies — a scientific breakthough that could open the way to bringing endangered species back from the brink of extinction.

    Kind of cool in its own way. Frightening as hell also. Should we really be messing with the chlorine and Ph balance in the pool? Discuss away if you feel like it. I need to go find some whales to kill.
