Missing link discovered

WEATHERFORD — There is talk about further study of man made global warming to determine if that was what caused hurricane Irene to sweep up the East Coast. Before Al Gore invented the Internet and discovered man made global warming, there were hurricanes doing what Irene did, and some a lot worse: the great hurricane that struck in 1938, hurricanes Carol and Edna in 1954. If you listen to the global warming crowd, you would think Irene was the first one to ever go all the way up the coast into Canada.

Are the folks working for NASA a bunch of uneducated hayseed? I bet you haven’t heard about the eight-year study on man made global warming that NASA did. The following paragraph is taken from an article by James M. Taylor, senior fellow for environmental policy at The Heartland Institute and managing editor of Environment & Climate News.

“When objective NASA satellite data, reported in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, show a ‘huge discrepancy’ between alarmist climate models and real world facts, climate scientists, the media and our elected officials would be wise to take notice. Whether or not they do so will tell us a great deal about how honest the purveyors of global warming alarmists truly are.”

In my opinion, the man made global warming crowd has no interest in the facts. They are out to bankrupt America and send us back to the Stone Age.

Capitalists using too much of the world’s resources and causing the rest of the world to live in poverty deserve the same. It doesn’t matter America has done more to help other nations than any society in the history of the world.

Solyndra, a green energy company that produced solar panels, is filing for bankruptcy. The company and its buddies raised and donated heavily to the Obama campaign and Democrat party, in return the company received $535 million in government loans. Closing of the plant will eliminate about 1,100 jobs. So much for green jobs.

You hear the lefties howl about the tax breaks that petroleum companies get. Well, at least they provide good paying jobs and provide a product that is in demand. If the EPA doesn’t back off of the new regulations that were supposed to go into effect Sept. 1, it is a possibility that 18 coal-fired power plants in Texas could be closed, according to an article by Rep. Phil King.

Obama has said gasoline needs to be around $7 per gallon to discourage usage, and your electric bill would skyrocket because he will punish coal-fired generating plants. So, I recommend you vote for Obama if you want to walk or ride a bicycle, sit in the dark and sweat profusely, eat spoiled food, just to name a few benefits offered by the Democrat Party.

Governor Perry doesn’t believe in evolution or man made global warming. Neither do I. The missing link seems to keep evading discovery. There have been many hoaxes, such as Lucy, Piltdown man, Ida, Java man and Nebraska man, which was built around a tooth that was later proven to belong to an extinct pig.

Seems I heard somewhere that true science was based on facts, not on some harebrained notion. If you don’t believe in intelligent design, how could you believe in the theory of evolution? If you are going to teach evolution, teach intelligent design and let students choose.

Check out Dr. Carl Baugh’s Creation Evidence Museum in Glen Rose. It seems to me that those who support man made global warming and evolution are taking Albert Einstein’s advice, “If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts.” In my opinion the missing link is between their ears.

  • The triumph of tarp

    One of our favorite political stories took place during Barry Goldwater’s presidential campaign in 1964. A friend was standing outside a Goldwater rally when a woman burst from the room, tears streaming down her face.

  • The good news you likely haven't heard

    Do you like surprises? I have two surprises for you: At least 19 states already in 2014, nearly half, are posting budget surpluses. Yes, surpluses. The other surprise: Since Obama took office, the national deficit has been reduced by one-half.

  • The hand over the lens

    The top Super Bowl highlight was not Peyton Manning struggling or Renee Fleming singing or even that adorable puppy nuzzling a horse in the Budweiser commercial. It was Bill O’Reilly grilling Barack Obama.

  • U.S. mayors forced to innovate

    I recently came across more proof that lawmakers blocking progress are weakening the institution of Congress: 

    Mayors from across the nation met in Washington, D.C., for three days last week to discuss a host of issues and possible solutions against a backdrop of congressional inaction. This came as President Obama stated his plans to use “a pen and a phone” to “make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help they need.” And further, voters are recognizing that the problem in Congress starts at the state level -- and many hope their legislatures will do something about it.

  • The Village Idiot — Class, but not least

    For Steve’s birthday, it was decided that no one could give him a gift that cost over a dollar. Not that we don’t like Steve, or that he isn’t worth more than a dollar, or that we’re extremely cheap (well, it could be that). It’s just that as grown-ups, who needs more stuff?

  • Black Friday on Thanksgiving?

    Thanksgiving is a time set apart to thank God for all His blessings. It now appears that stores are trying to get a jump on Christmas shopping by beginning “Black Friday” on Thanksgiving Day! Our culture continues to push a secular agenda on all of us. Now the press of shopping is crowding out a time of personal reflection on the goodness of God.

  • BYRON YORK: Obama, Dems kept mum about health plan

    The journalist Jonathan Cohn, an ardent supporter of Obamacare, recently wrote in The New Republic that problems with the rollout of the Affordable Care Act should be “an opportunity to have a serious conversation about the law’s trade-offs — the one that should have happened a while ago.”

  • DONNA BRAZILE: A gift of practical idealism

    I was only 3 when President John F. Kennedy died, but I’ll never forget what happened that day as my grandmother and others cried. You see, we were Catholics living down in the then-segregated Deep South. Kennedy was our hope for a better tomorrow.

  • The way we were

    I can hear in my mind’s ear Barbra Streisand’s beautifully haunting song “The Way We Were.” It was a nostalgic, wistful song in a movie of the same name. But sometimes, like now, it reminds me of how far we’ve come.
