An Old Comment Thread...

on an idea for a Constitutional Amendment.

Joe Huffman's The Jews in the Attic Test

It also works for slaves in the Barn. The test is:
Will this law make it difficult or impossible to protect innocent life from a government intent on their imprisonment or death?

Orson Scott Card on Global Warming

It's worth reading.
In fact, what we have right now, while we are not yet as warm as the peak of the Medieval Warming (a fact that Mann and others have tried to deny or obscure), is a superb climate that is making life better for people all over the world. It's the cold periods that cause famines and population drops, and promote plagues and floods.

We should be grateful.

Instead we are being hit with dire warnings, every one of which is either false or a normal part of the Earth's history; our business should be to adapt to the unavoidable solar-caused warming, not to destroy the worldwide economy in order to prevent something that human activity is not causing.

41 Years a Marine

We didn't quite make it to the ceremony, as we had a conflict, but Master Gunnery Sgt. Kendall Phelps was honored today at the Liberty Memorial in Kansas City. So we visited the memorial and it's WWI museum instead. I highly recommend it.

A Sad Day for the ACLU

... ACLU chapter ex-president charged in child-porn case ...

Fox News has video.

O'Reilly says Charles Rust-Tierney had videos showing "pre-pubescent girls being violently raped", and that he coached youth sports teams.

How horrible. How tragic. God weeps for those little girls.

Let justice be swiftly done.

Update: I added the word chapter above, noted by the bold. Thanks, shep.
