Global Warming...Really?

Ok, many of you that know me are aware that one of my favorite quotes is by me..."Every Ice Age Ended Due To Global Warming." I don't buy into the idea of man-made global warming though I'm quite aware that the planet goes through heating and cooling cycles all the time. This week somewhere around 60% of the United States is currently experiencing freezing temperatures and in many of those areas there is snow cover. Much of this is in areas experiencing record lows. Meanwhile the United Nations just finished a meeting about global BALI where it's warm all year. I guess it's easier to convince the gullible of man-made global warming when you're someplace warm and nearer to the equator rather than your headquarters in freezing cold New York City.
The powers supplying the idea of man-made global warming are trying their level best to get you to buy into the hysteria. Why? Simple, if you buy into it you're less likely to fight the taxes they're proposing to combat the evil polluters in the world. Yes, I said taxes. If you listen carefully to people like Al Gore and the other super liberals that think humans are a blight on the planet you'll hear them propose taxes to fight man-made global warming. Don't say I didn't warn you when your paycheck gets smaller.

Steroids In Baseball...Who Cares?

C'mon who really cares that a bunch of overpaid professional ball players use steroids and human growth hormone? Regular season baseball is about as exciting as watching paint dry so why would anyone mind that maybe it gets spiced up a bit?

Think about it. Why are steroids banned in sports? In amateur sports it's to supposedly keep the competition level by making it about the athletes instead of who has the best lab. I buy that for the Olympics and similar venues where many of the athletes are minors and where countries may have fewer resources than their competitors, but pro sports are different. The players are adults and every team has lots of resources. If the players are stupid enough to inject steroids and die young in pursuit of a better career so be it. It might make that boring ass game of baseball a little more fun.

By the way...I'm REALLY Glad the American Taxpayer had to foot the bill for the Mitchell Report - aren't you?
