God help us… Joplin, Mo.

May 23, 2011

Joplin Missouri took it on the chin in a very terrible way yesterday. The last that I heard eighty-nine people were killed, and that number is expected to rise. For the other drivers out there; We received notice that the Flying J got hammered. I hope and pray that everyone there is safe. Those are some of the best folks at any truck stop anywhere and go the extra mile to make a worn out driver feel welcome.

My prayers are with you this day.

Brrr… brrr… it is so darn’d warm!

The faux scientist’s took another hit it seems. First the originator of the computer model that pronounced climate change as man made said the model was faulty, and gave faulty results. Then the actual statistics showed that no warming had happened. Then, poor Al Gore had to go into hiding because it was shown that his big pitch was more about lining his own, and his cronies pockets than science. Now this..? What is an eco chicken little freak to do?

The world has never seen such freezing heat

A surreal scientific blunder last week raised a huge question mark about the temperature records that underpin the worldwide alarm over global warming. On Monday, Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), which is run by Al Gore’s chief scientific ally, Dr James Hansen, and is one of four bodies responsible for monitoring global temperatures, announced that last month was the hottest October on record.

When has the earth not been either cooling or warming?

This particular bit of humor is dedicated to my good friend Neil Stalking Bear. He is a real Native American, and really can appreciate a good joke! 🙂

Circular reasoning———-just as in the corporate world. ROA

It was already late fall and the Indians on a remote reservation in
South Dakota asked their new chief if the coming winter was going to
be cold or mild. Since he was a chief in a modern society he had never
been taught the old secrets. When he looked at the sky he couldn’t
tell what the winter was going to be like.

Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the
winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village
should collect firewood to be prepared.

But, being a practical leader, after several days he got an idea. He
went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and
asked, “Is the coming winter going to be cold?”

“It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold,” the
meteorologist at the weather service responded.

So the chief went back to his people and told them to collect even
more firewood in order to be prepared.

A week later he called the National Weather Service again. “Does it
still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?”

“Yes,” the man at National Weather Service again replied, “it’s going
to be a very cold winter.”

The chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect
every scrap of firewood they could find.

Two weeks later the chief called the National Weather Service again.
“Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?”
“Absolutely,” the man replied. “It’s looking more and more like it is
going to be one of the coldest winters we’ve ever seen.”

“How can you be so sure?” the chief asked.
The weatherman replied, “The Indians are collecting firewood like crazy.”
