  1. POSTED ON OCTOBER 4, 2021 BY JOHN HINDERAKER IN CLIMATE GLOBAL WARMING? NOT LATELY Global warming hysteria marches on. It is all around us, reinforced every time it is hot somewhere, or perhaps even when it is cold (e.g., the recent record cold temperatures in Antarctica), or when it is too wet or, equally, too dry. If you didn’t know better, you would think from press accounts that global warming is an accomplished fact. But the reality is quite different. In recent years, whatever warming was formerly going on has stopped. Satellite measurements, the only reliable means of estimating global temperatures, indicate that the Earth has not warmed in nearly seven years. That is remarkable–seven years of warming hysteria with no warming: Surface temperature measurements are less reliable, less transparent, and subject to frequent after-the-fact “adjustments” that reduce temperatures actually recorded in the past with thermometers. Nevertheless, for what it is worth, the main surface dataset shows no warming–in fact, a very slight cooling–for an even longer period: History suggests that human beings are not, by nature, empiricists. There are countless instances of humans clinging to theories that by rights should have been discredited by experience. To take an extreme example, consider the current popularity of socialism in what was once a mainstream political party. A less extreme case of irrationality is Europeans’ clinging for centuries to the “four humours” template of human health, even though that theory never allowed anyone to cure any other one of anything. Global warming hysteria is heir to a long, if not honorable, tradition. https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2021/10/global-warming-not-lately.php
  2. GDR, you are predicating your vote on who you believe is telling the truth about their platform. Surely a track record is the best indicator of whether or not you can believe them going forward. In my opinion, Justin T fails that test miserably. I'm willing to give a Vet a chance to prove himself...especially considering what we have gone thru in the last 6 years with a trust fund, WE scandal, black faced part-time drama teacher who has no regard for finances.
  3. The term that I heard which sums it up rather well...it's a "cluster bug." All on Joe.
  4. Churchill was a quote machine...one of the best. "Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery".
  5. Tory win! Hopefully a sign of things to come. https://nationalpost.com/news/politics/tories-surge-to-surprise-n-s-election-victory-with-campaign-focused-on-health-care
  6. Inside the USAF C-17 that left Kabul earlier today.
  7. It's hard to imagine a US President who has been more of a disaster...both for his country & the rest of the world. https://www.foxnews.com/world/afghanistan-translator-just-waiting-for-taliban-to-kill-me-after-he-risked-his-life-for-us
  8. Biden quote from last nights farcical CNN Town Hall... "And the question is whether or not we should be in a position where are why can't the experts say we know that this virus is in fact it's going to be or excuse we know why all the drugs approved are not temporarily approved and permanently approved, that's underway too."
  9. Socialism jokes are only funny if everyone gets them.
  10. Very interesting development. Opinions anyone? https://electrek.co/2021/07/14/united-air-invests-in-electric-plane-startup-heart-aerospace-buy-200-electric-aircraft/#disqus_thread "United Airlines announced today what could be an important step toward electric commercial flight. The major airline announced that it invested in Heart Aerospace, a Sweden-based electric aircraft startup, and agreed to buy up to 200 electric planes. Battery technology has improved enough that short-range commercial planes are starting to make sense. Several startups are working on viable electric aircraft, and some are starting to get the attention of major airlines. Heart Aerospace is one of those startups. The startup is developing the ES-19, a 19-seat electric aircraft meant for short flights. It believes that there’s an opportunity for electric aircraft to reopen short regional air routes with lower costs, thanks to fuel savings. At first, the startup plans for the ES-19 to only have up to 250 miles (400 km) of range but a commercially viable range for short-range flights with 19 passengers. Several major companies seem to agree with this strategy, as United Airlines Ventures (UAV), Breakthrough Energy Ventures, which is Bill Gates’s investment vehicle, and Mesa Airlines have announced an investment of an undisclosed amount in Heart Aerospace."
  11. Courtesy of....Live from the Flight Deck.
  12. It's a tough one to figure out. I tried to zoom into the licence plate on the white van...but had no luck. Anyone know which province had a yellowish licence plate in that time period?
  13. Loved that paint scheme. Not sure of the location on this...anyone?
  14. More breaking news from the Babylon Bee... Congress Passes Law To Recognize Juneteenth, The Day Republicans Freed All The Democrats' Slaves ""During this year's Juneteenth, the nation will gather to celebrate the American political party that was founded on protecting human rights of people of all skin colors. Democrats around the country will write letters of apology and organize celebrations for the vast network of Christians, Catholics, Quakers, and Republicans who fought and died to end the scourge of slavery in America." https://babylonbee.com/news/congress-passes-law-to-recognize-juneteenth-the-day-republicans-freed-all-the-democrats-slaves
