Under the blanket of a blinding blizzard, negotiators in Copenhagen charge ahead with efforts to forge an international agreement that will stem the tide of what they now call “Climate Change.” (Formerly known as Global Warming.) The winter storm wasn’t all these Global Warming alarmists were ignoring as they donned coats, hats, scarves and gloves to demand action that they believe will lower temperatures.
Protesters, “green” organizations, and worst of all, delegates representing member states of the UN continued to ignore the words of leading scientists that have led some to call “Climate Change” the “worst scientific scandal of our generation.”
It’s understandable the nutcase treehuggers who hold no real job didn’t notice that the whole idea of man-made climate change is a fabricated hoax. They spend their entire lives protesting at some conference for some left wing cause or another. The “green” organizations know the science is junk. They’ve always known it. They use it to convince citizens of the world that cow farts, SUVs, and even our own breathing are turning the Earth into a boiling cauldron, not because of some burning desire to save the world, but to extort money from those who swallow their left-wing line and those who don’t.
The extortion from sympathizers, believers, and followers comes in the form of donations to the left-wing organizations that support the professional protesters who pass through this life throwing rocks, breaking windows, and turning over cars in the street. Those who don’t run for their lives when the radical left nut jobs play Chicken Little with issues like Global Warming…uh…I mean Climate Change…don’t voluntarily hand over their hard earned cash to the liberal loons so the extortion takes a little more effort where they’re concerned. These involuntary victims of the leftist liberals are stripped of their worldly possessions for the good of the cause by taxation and/or government imposed mandates.
Those taxes and mandates were exactly what the shivering ambassadors from 193 countries sought to agree on at Copenhagen. But negotiators seemed stymied, unable to reach an agreement as rich countries (those who would be required to pay said taxes) didn’t seem to want to part with as much of their wealth as poorer countries (those who would benefit from yet another liberal scheme to redistribute wealth) planned to take. Then, US President Barack Obama arrived in the winter wonderland anomaly.
Believers and extortionists can now claim Obama’s powers of persuasion, though no longer capable of hypnotizing a majority of Americans, worked wonders on the chilly conference representatives’ ability to compromise. With a flurry of last minute arm twisting, which included the President breaking protocol by bursting into a meeting of Chinese, Brazilian, Indian and South African leaders to demand they not negotiate in secret (funny how he doesn’t hold Democratic Senators to that standard on health care), the President forged an agreement between the US and those four countries that permitted him yet another opportunity to describe his accomplishment with his favorite adjective.
If Global Warming/Climate Change/[whatever the next name for the nonexistent threat propagated by the left] is real, the results of his “unprecedented” accomplishment must have been instantaneous, because the President had to leave Denmark before the agreement could be considered by the full conference in order to beat another blinding snowstorm descending on Washington, DC.
One can only imagine what weather conditions would have befallen the US capitol if Obama had failed in his quest to get something on paper before he left Copenhagen. Air conditioning systems would likely be running full blast in the capitol city, creating an “unprecedented” December demand on coal-fired power plants to cool the sultry confines inside the beltway. Imagine the “unprecedented” levels of CO2 that would have been emitted by DC denizens’ efforts to combat what would almost certainly have been an “unprecedented” heat wave this weekend. So be sure to email the White House and thank the President as you’re shoveling the snow from your driveway this weekend.
Global Warming/Climate Change/[whatever the radical left wants to call it this week] is nowhere to be found this weekend, thanks to the “unprecedented” pretentiousness of our President!
Of course, it’s more likely the leaked CRU emails we’ve read about really did point to a cover up by the scientific community to help guarantee a continually growing flow of research dollars help them manufacture more junk science and there was no more truth to Global Warming than to Al Gore’s claim that he invented the internet.
Now that Howard Dean and the SEIU have joined with the conservative American majority in calling for Harry Reid’s health care bill to die a quick death, we can finally say bipartisanship has been achieved on the President’s number one domestic agenda.
Join with the bipartisan coalition of conservative activists, the SEIU, and ultra-liberal Howard Dean by calling your Senator and telling him/her to KILL THE BILL!

Every Christmas season of late has been plagued by the controversy of how to appropriately greet one another during the season set aside to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. According to a Rasmussen poll last month, 72% of Americans prefer the traditional “Merry Christmas” greeting and only 22% prefer “Happy Holidays.”
I think it’s probably safe to assume a conservative state like Arkansas, nestled snugly inside the Bible Belt, would lean more heavily in favor of “Merry Christmas.” But even if the poll accurately represents Arkansans’ thinking on this issue, an Arkansas politician who chooses to use the secular “Happy Holidays” is likely to offend more voters than one who uses the traditional Christmas greeting.
Today, Senator Blanche Lincoln demonstrated once again just how far out of touch she is with the people of Arkansas with her “Holiday Greeting.” Though 86% of Arkansans identify themselves as Christian, Lincoln doesn’t once recognize this as a time to celebrate the birth of Christ. Perhaps she feels more comfortable with the “freethinking” Winter Solstice worshipers who recently won the right to adorn the Arkansas State Capitol with their pagan display.
Lincoln sent the following email to her constituents earlier today:
Dear Fellow Arkansan,
As you gather together to celebrate with your family this holiday, I encourage you to embrace the spirit of the season. Remember our neighbors in need by volunteering your time and services or donating your financial resources to those less fortunate. We can all make a difference in someone’s life.
From my family to yours, have a joyous holiday and a very happy New Year.
With Arkansas Pride,
Not one mention of Christ, or Christmas. Just “holiday.”
Here’s her “Holiday Greeting” video:
Remember, 86% of Arkansans identify themselves as Christians. Still, Lincoln seems to have joined the left-wing group of radical Democrats who interpret the 1st Amendment’s Freedom “of” Religion to imply Freedom “from” Religion. This may prove to be just one more nail in the coffin of her political career as she faces a tough reelection campaign next year.
Already, Rasmussen has her trailing 4 of the 7 announced Republican candidates for her seat in 2010. One of those candidates, Curtis Coleman, has released his own Christmas message to Arkansas voters and (gasp!) he actually calls it Christmas!
I’m thinking Coleman’s message will play better with Arkansas voters, but tell us what you think.
