Drowning In Sea Level Nonsense

PA Pundits - International

caruba_alan20080111By Alan Caruba ~AA - Ocean Scene

New York Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D) and forty members of Congress believe the sea levels are rising, that a panel should be created to determine what should be done, and, of course, to throw billions of dollars at a problem that does not exist. Politicians were eager to scare the public with the discredited global warming hoax and now they have found a new one.

In New York City, Mayor Bloomberg has proposed a $20 billion flood barrier system to protect the city from future hurricanes and rising sea levels. Well, hurricanes like tropical storm Sandy are real, but rare. Rising sea levels, however, represent no threat at all.

William Happer who researched ocean physics for the U.S. Air Force and is currently a physics professor at Princeton University notes that “The sea level has been rising since 1800, at the end of the ‘little ice…

Cairo clashes leave scores of Morsi supporters dead

Egyptian Streets

By Pesha Magid
Overnight clashes in Cairo near a large pro-Morsi sit-in have left scores of Egyptians dead. The number of deaths from violence between Morsi supporters, opponents, and security forces remains unclear, as different sources are engaged in a ‘war of numbers’.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s official spokesperson, Gehad el Haddad, reports at least 200 dead with over 1,000 injured. The BBC reports that 120 died during the clashes between former President Morsi supporters, opponents, and police early on Saturday morning. The Guardian meanwhile put the death count over 136. Reporters from Mada Masr confirm seeing at least 20 dead, and state that that officials on the scene report 70 dead. Officially, the Ministry of Health announced that 74 were killed and 7489 were injured.

The clashes apparently broke out when pro-Morsi supporters marched towards and attempted to block the 6th of October Bridge late in the evening on…

My instructor in debating emphasized I don’t know how many times, that engaging in “ad hominem” arguments was a major no-no.  In other words, it was appropriate – even desirable – to make counter arguments to those your opponent set forth – but it was not acceptable to say something like, “Well, I’m not surprised to hear you say that.  That’s just the kind of thing I would expect from someone as ugly as you.”

Those instructions really stuck with me.  Therefore, it is difficult for me to “attack” someone without feeling at least a small quiver of guilt that I might be engaging in that sort of argumentation.  Fortunately, I have been able to resolve this dilemma by substituting an “ad hominid” argument in place of the tabooed “ad hominem” one.

As you know, the family “Hominidae” includes both man and our fossil ancestors.  I am not sure if the…

Smoke Signals

The Slog

smokesigsNews of the World to relaunch online? Tom Watson tried to tease out Rupert Murdoch on Twitter this morning by suggesting the News of the Word is about to be relaunched online. I understand that the campaigning Labour MP has insider sources in Wapping who have given him the lowdown on a planned relaunch of the dear old “I made an excuse and left” News of the Screws. So then, this is Murdoch’s contrition for having broken every law in Britain and then blamed it on his staff: to relaunch the thing in another medium. When the launch happens, I do not doubt it will be the most humble day of his life.

The depth of criminality inside Newscorp is still emerging, with the head of news at The Sun having been charged two weeks ago with authorising illegal payments to police and army officials. Chris Faro was charged on…

Might the Planet Earth have her own Krikkit (Islamist) Colonies?


Is Islamism our own Planet Krikkit? Can it be dealt with in similar fashion but with even better results than in Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy?

Others prefer
to live in peace without killing anyone. Who wins?

The Beauties of Islamism

This article at American Thinker (H/t to Counter Jihad Report) offers a few of the many inspiring verses from the blessed Koran:

“Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them.” Koran 2:191

“Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood.” Koran 9:123

“When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.” Koran 9:5

“Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.” Koran 3:85

“The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them.”… Koran 9:30

“Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam” Koran 5:33

“Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron…
