This is how ridiculous we’ve become as a nation:
Our elected senators make mountains out of molehills concerning global warming, while our Defense Department makes molehills out of mountains concerning national security.
Oh right, and our legislators unwittingly sign laws allowing military personnel to engage in sodomy and bestiality.
This is how ridiculous we’ve become as a nation… almost as pathetic as Europe, which is on the verge of collapse and still can’t do anything but whine and rag on America. I didn’t hear a single one of them questioning Standard & Poor’s decision to downgrade the United States’ credit rating this year, but now that it’s threatening to do the same to Germany, well clearly “some American ratings agencies and fund managers” must be “working against the euro zone,” right?
As if they’re not doing a bang up job of destroying their joint economy all by themselves. Just like we’re doing to ourselves by electing the likes of California Senator Barbara Boxer, who recently had this to say on the non-issue of global warming:
“The message I have for climate deniers is this: You are endangering humankind. It is time for climate deniers to face reality, because the body of evidence is overwhelming and the world’s leading scientists agree.”
I assume she’s referring to the scientists who think that aliens from outer space might destroy Earth to save the universe from the ravages of global warming… who are forced to take administrative leave on charges of scientific misconduct for their research on polar bears… or deliberately hide data that don’t support the conclusions they want?
Those scientists? Or is she talking about 1973 Nobel Prize winner and physics genius Dr. Ivar Giaever, who resigned from the American Physical Society over its pro-global warming stance? Or maybe she means NASA, which recently showed that the earth is allowing far more heat into space than global warming hypists would have us believe.
Truth is, I doubt even Boxer knows what she’s talking about. She rarely does, after all.
Neither does our Department of Defense, at least when run by the Obama administration. That much is obvious when it wants to classify a blatant act of terrorism – like Major Nidal Hasan’s Fort Hood shooting – as “workplace violence.” What about the proof that he corresponded repeatedly with radical Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaki?
But clearly, that kind of solid proof doesn’t matter when people are so intent on being ridiculous. And let's face it: Under President Obama, that's exactly what we're becoming.
