Things Are Changing

I learned a new thing. "Tony's shared items" are links to interesting articles. I will probably not commentate as much on politics, but will provide links to things I find interesting, either because of their truth or utter absurdity.

One Smart Thing To Say About Global Warming

If the US has draconian pollution laws, companies will leave for countries with fewer restrictions. The same has happened with taxes and labor markets.

And if polluting industries set up shop in lax countries they will be even dirtier that they would have been in the US. So to whatever degree emissions do affect the environment, manufacturers leaving the US will have a net negative affect on the globe even if it improves emissions here.

I like Investors Business Daily cartoons

I thought this one was particularly accurate.

Harry Reid is a Disgrace

I am very irritated with him right now. Examples here, here, and here. I don't feel like commentating (yes that is a word, or at least it is now), but I am rather irritated. It seems like a guy who has read the Book of Mormon would know the great dangers caused by traitors who seek power. Reid seems to be jumping for joy that war may lead to more Democrat seats in Congress.

I will make a prediction: Some time down the road, we will learn what has really happened in the War on Terror and George W. Bush will be revered as a visionary who did everything possible to fight evil. He has never published his greatest successes because to do so would be to reveal our secrets to the enemy and endanger innocent lives.

Instead we have a fifth column operating here at home. Political power is more important that doing the right thing. When the tide of the war was in our favor, almost everyone - Democrats included - supported the President and the war. Now that things aren't going as well as hoped, everyone jumps ship.

This may well be a war we can't win. But this is a war we MUST fight with everything we have or there will be a huge price to pay.

Driving down the road I saw:

Some semis carry heavy loads.

Thus Begins Baseball Season

I attended the Rangers game today. They solidly beat the Red Sox 8 to 4. Sammy Sosa homered. It was a good night. Except for one thing. I nearly froze. They reported over the PA system that it was the coldest game ever played at the Ballpark in Arlington.

Earlier today I was working outside and saw snow. Yes, SNOW - in Texas, in April, during baseball season. I am very concerned with global cooling. I think people should drive SUV's more and use more gas. If that causes warming, then bring it on. I was cold all day.

Here is the man I really wish we could vote for

The rendezvous with destiny is still in front of us. Each generation has its challenge. All generations of the past have faced their challenge head on. Right now, it looks like this one won't.
