Obama's Upset Again

Well, Barack Hussein Obama is upset again. This time he's upset with the Tennessee GOP picking on his poor Harvard educated Lawyer wife. How are they picking on her? Well, by using her own words of course. The TN GOP has put together a YouTube video interspersing Michelle Obama's words and those of some Patriotic Tennessee residents. What did Senator Obama say about this? He said, "If they think that they're going to try to make Michelle an issue in this campaign, they should be careful because that I find unacceptable, the notion that you start attacking my wife or my family."

Oooh, we should be scared. We have to "be careful" because Barack Hussein Obama will be out to get us. Well, I'm not scared and I'm fine with going after Michelle Obama using her own words. First, how is it attacking someone by repeating their own words? Second, if she's out there campaigning for her husband she's fair game just like anyone else.

Here's the video and yes I think she's not all that patriotic. If you're that ashamed to be an American please go somewhere else where you think it's better.

Does Your Carpet Contribute To Global Warming?

Ok, I still don't buy the idea of man-made global warming but many people do and those people are some of the biggest hypocrites alive. Many of these "Global Warming is Doomsday" types do things on a reguar basis that, according to their own "science", contributes to CO2 emissions and global warming. Among the things these hypocrites do is install carpet in their offices, homes and apartments.

I know what you're thinking...C'mon Ben...Carpet? Yes. Just think about it a minute. There are a few reasons that common household or office carpet contributes to global warming:

1. Modern carpet is made from synthetic fibers usually derived from petroleum (oil). The manufacturing process uses lots of electricity which is usually produced by CO2 producing electric plants.
2. Carpet is very heavy and must be transported great distances from the manufacturer to the distributor's warehouse by CO2 producing, petroleum burning trucks and trains.
3. Carpet must come from the warehouse to the location it will be installed in by more trucks.
4. Carpet must be regularly cleaned by electric vacuum cleaners and electrically powered steam cleaners. Remember, electricity is produced by generators powered by coal or petroleum.

People don't need carpet and the global warming crowd needs to recognize this and get carpet banned in all U.S. homes and offices starting with their own.
