The Flat Earth Fighting Retreat Begins

New narrative: It's not the scientists who are wrong, but the alarmist environmental advocates trying to spur emission reduction who, in the process of dramatizing the dangers of the flat earth.. er, warming!, are discrediting legitimate concerns based upon scientific fact with unfounded outlandish disaster prophesies.

You will note the much more elegant design with two cables spooled onto the same drum. Cable separation is maintained via a guide rod assembly (the cables don't ride it, but bounce off when they try to get together). The end uprights have been grouped into sub-assemblies, and the hoist frame has been reconfigured so that it gives more even lifting, but reduced capacity with the same hoist.

Change You Can Believe In

Seems folk in East St. Louis figure with a half-black man in the whitehouse they shouldn't be expected to hide their desire to leave whitey out in the cold anymore. The mayor was a bit too overt in his desire to keep the blood pure within his sphere of civic influence.

"[The] defendants thereafter fired all of the candidates hired by [Frazer and Murphy] and hired several new officers and employees based on their racial and political beliefs," the suit alleges.

East St. Louis is a pest hole of crime running the gamut from a to z and I guess it is only natural, given a community policing philosophy, that drug dealers and theives should be policed by those of similar backgrounds.

10 police officers hired in June 2008, two had criminal histories — and that one of the two took the oath of office while sought on an outstanding arrest warrant for domestic battery.

I guess it's Africa here now and the white folk just haven't gotten the message. What other explanation is there?

The Flat Earth Climate Change Movement is Useful After All

It sure brings the whackos out of their hidey holes and makes them feel free to step out from behind their veils of respectability. It must be liberating for them to think it is finally acceptable to share with the world what they really believe.

Climate chief Lord Stern: give up meat to save the planet

People will need to consider turning vegetarian if the world is to conquer climate change, according to a leading authority on global warming.

In an interview with The Times, Lord Stern of Brentford said: “Meat is a wasteful use of water and creates a lot of greenhouse gases. It puts enormous pressure on the world’s resources. A vegetarian diet is better.”

Lord Stern, the author of the influential 2006 Stern Review on the cost of tackling global warming, said that a successful deal at the Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in December would lead to soaring costs for meat and other foods that generate large quantities of greenhouse gases.
