Friday Follies 1.30.09

January 30, 2009

Tis that time once again when we take stock of the inane and foolish put upon us by those forced to navigate life with an amount of gray matter just slightly larger than that found in your average toad.

I could not have received a better birthday present. The midwest in yet another winter storm, snow scattered on the National Mall, and Al Gore testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that if we don’t act quick and spend much, human civilization will be destroyed from that big, evil, boogeyman, Global Warming! (Oh sorry, that was YESTERDAY’s phrase. Since actual data and more and more scientists are begining to seriously doubt Gore’s mantra, the name has been changed to “Climate Change” to protect the innocent, er, guilty in Gore’s case.)

An excerpt from the Great and Glorious Gore’s opening statement:

“We are here today, of course, to talk about how we as Americans and how the United States of America as part of the global community should address the dangerous and growing threat of the climate crisis.
We have arrived at a moment of decision. Our home, earth, is in danger. What is at risk of being destroyed is not the planet itself, of course, but the conditions that have made it hospitable for human beings.”

For the entire Folly record I give you the C-SPAN video, Transcript from, and Gore’s “Moment of Decision” memo from Real Clear Politics:

I know it doesn’t fit the “Folly” page but in preparedness for the fairness doctrine coming to an internet near you, I now give you what Gore, Kerry, and the lemings won’t:

A backgound on the entire scam from John Coleman, founder of the weather channel:

History of the Global Warming “Crisis”

Wonderful satire from Dana Milbank over at the Washington Post:

The Goracle

And a couple additional f’s from around the space:

When you give a gavel to a toad:

Judge Amok

Did you see the story about the woman in California who gave birth to the brood of eight? (yes that’s 8). Sure, everbody saw that. BUT, did you know she ALREADY had SIX (yes that’s 6) at home?

CBS Octup Mom

LA Times Octup Mom

And……..perhaps the greatest folly of them all. The Joplin Globe has asked your humble host to develop a locally themed blog for their online presence. Mug shot was taken yesterday and the tech guys working on it as I type so local dribble should be starting sometime next week. Will link in from here when all up and running.

As always, be safe, have fun and I’ll see you all back on Monday.
