Climate Change Bullshit

March 31, 2014
Dave-Granlund-Climate-Chang

The U.N. and its member states -including obama’s America- is trying to hold us hostage for climate change

If the world doesn’t cut pollution of heat-trapping gases, the already noticeable harms of global warming could spiral “out of control,” the head of a United Nations scientific panel warned Monday.

And he’s not alone. The Obama White House says it is taking this new report as a call for action, with Secretary of State John Kerry saying “the costs of inaction are catastrophic.”

“We’re now in an era where climate change isn’t some kind of future hypothetical,” said the overall lead author of the report, Chris Field of the Carnegie Institution for Science in California. “We live in an area where impacts from climate change are already widespread and consequential.”

Nobody is immune, Pachauri and other scientists said.

“We’re all sitting ducks,” Princeton University professor Michael Oppenheimer, one of the main authors of the report, said in an interview.

Translated: (Oh, no! We’re all gonna die! And it’s your fault!).

It’s all for money, you know. Oh, HUGE slush fund, this global climate whatzit. The developed nations spend billions every year in guilt money so the poor nations can ‘fight’ glowball worming, too.

Meanwhile, Mother Nature just goes on doing what comes naturally.

BUT… the NIPCC (Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change)are releasing their newest reports this month… and guess what? It’s NOT all your fault.

“The human impact on global climate is small, and any warming that may occur as a result of human carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gas emissions is likely to have little effect on global temperatures, the cryosphere (ice-covered areas), hydrosphere (oceans, lakes, and rivers), or weather.

Another One Bites The Dust: Fisker Automotive

Fisker took $139 million of our tax dollars with it when it went. At $1.45 million a piece, how many Tomahawk missiles would that buy?

How much “renewable energy money” has our government actually thrown money like drunken sailors on leave at their first titty bar?

As of a few months ago: $154 BILLION.

And guess what?

“President Barack Obama is ordering the federal government to nearly triple its use of renewable sources for electricity by 2020.”

Can we please elect adults, who know that the primary responsibility of government is to protect its citizens? I’m so tired of this crap.

The Honor System

We were told that there was no way the March 31st Obamacare sign up date would change… then it was decreed that you could opt-out of Obamacare if it was a ‘hardship’… and finally, you can get an extension (as in, not be penalized by an out of control government for not buying insurance they approve of) by going to the healthcare dot gov website and “checking a box”. But they won’t know if you mean it. What??

Is this bizarro world?

With the March 31 deadline to enroll in Obamacare’s federal insurance marketplace quickly approaching, the Obama administration announced Tuesday night it would give Americans extra time to finish their applications.

The Washington Post is reporting that applicants will have until mid-April under the administration’s new rules. It marks the latest in a series of delays and changes the Obama administration has made to the law since its adoption four years ago.

“Under the new rules,” the Post reports, “people will be able to qualify for an extension by checking a blue box on HealthCare.gov to indicate that they tried to enroll before the deadline. This method will rely on an honor system; the government will not try to determine whether the person is telling the truth.”

Reconquista

The Reconquista (“reconquest”), also Greater Mexico, is the characterization of the increased demographic and cultural presence of Mexicans in the Southwestern United States, an area that was part of Mexico before the Texas annexation (1845) and the Mexican Cession (1848), as a trend leading toward territorial losses by the United States.

Congratulations, Mexicans. Islam is no doubt taking notes… You did exactly what you said you’d do: reconquer the land taken from you… but not violently. No, that wouldn’t have worked. You moved here, legally and illegally, in droves. You had massive families and depended largely on the taxpayers to provide for them, bankrupting entire states. California, for one. Texas, though doing very well now, might be next as Mexicans gain more power. My plans to move home have been trashed.

Kids can’t wear the American flag because it may ‘disturb’ foreign students and are forced to take Spanish classes. I have to endure Spanish television ads. Between obama working from within and the foreign interests… not just Mexicans… without, we are probably over.

They reject the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo and what they regard as the American occupation of territory that originally belonged to Mexico (the Southwestern United States).

On its website, the front states:

“We reject the occupation of our nation in its northern territories, an important cause of poverty and emigration. We demand that our claim to all the territories occupied by force by the United States be recognized in our Constitution, and we will bravely defend, according to the principle of self-determination to all peoples, the right of the Mexican people to live in the whole of our territory within its historical borders, as they existed and were recognized at the moment of our independence.”

They also advocate the Second Mexican Empire and deplore the establishment of the republic.

Ideologically, it proposes a Distributist economy, socialization and the Third-Positionist ideology as an alternative to both Communism and Capitalism.

The organization promotes Central America’s reincorporation into Mexico and calls for Mexico to withdraw from the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP), World Trade Organization (WTO), the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the World Bank.

A Hempstead, Texas principal who was put on leave for telling students to speak English instead of Spanish has been let go.

Hempstead Middle School Principal Amy Lacey was placed on paid administrative leave in December after reportedly announcing, via intercom, that students were not to speak Spanish on the school’s campus. The Hispanic population of the rural area, roughly 50 miles northwest of Houston, is growing quickly, and Latino advocates say that it’s important to allow Spanish in public schools.

You know, maybe it’s because I’m older… but I won’t assimilate. That’s okay, you Mexican pricks. I -and those like me- will be gone soon enough. America was great once upon a time… maybe it really was a fairy tale…

“That’s The Good Thing About Being President”

February 11, 2014

“That’s the good thing about being President; I can do whatever I want”
~Barack Hussein Obama

keepmovingit

‘ObamaCare” is useful shorthand for the Affordable Care Act not least because the law increasingly means whatever President Obama says it does on any given day. His latest lawless rewrite arrived on Monday as the White House decided to delay the law’s employer mandate for another year and in some cases maybe forever.

ObamaCare requires businesses with 50 or more workers to offer health insurance to their workers or pay a penalty, but last summer the Treasury offered a year-long delay until 2015 despite having no statutory authorization. Like the individual mandate, the employer decree is central to ObamaCare’s claim of universal coverage, but employers said the new labor costs—and the onerous reporting and tax-enforcement rules—would damage job creation and the economy.

By now ObamaCare’s proliferating delays, exemptions and administrative retrofits are too numerous to count, most of them of dubious legality. The text of the Affordable Care Act specifically says when the mandate must take effect—”after December 31, 2013″—and does not give the White House the authority to change the terms.

Changing an unambiguous statutory mandate requires the approval of Congress, but then this President has often decided the law is whatever he says it is.

WSJ

Every time he unilaterally changes a law he breaks one… and the republicans sit on their hands. Oh, they might harumph a little… but where is the outrage? Complacency, especially amongst those we’ve elected to represent us in D.C., is very dangerous.

The problem is, we the people are complacent. Maybe when the unemployment rate hits 50% more will wake up?

EDITED to add:

Companies Must Justify Their Workforce Decisions Under Obama’s Latest Rewrite

Once again acting without Congress, President Obama has unilaterally changed his signature health insurance law, delaying its employer mandate – the second time he’s done this — to 2016, after the mid-term elections.

BUT: To be eligible for the additional delay, the Obama administration says an employer “may not reduce the size of its workforce or the overall hours of service of its employees” unless it can justify those reductions to the Internal Revenue Service.

The Affordable Care Act, as passed by Congress, says companies with more than 50 full-time-equivalent employees must provide “minimum essential coverage” starting on Jan. 1, 2014 or pay a fine.

On Monday, the administration issued new regulations saying that employers with 50 to 99 workers don’t need to provide minimum essential coverage until 2016 – two years beyond what’s written in the law.

And large employers (those with 100 or more workers) must provide coverage to only 70 percent of their workers in 2015.

But the regulations also say that effective yesterday, employers may not shed employees or work hours just to get below the 100-employee threshold – and thus avoid Obamacare’s penalties for another full year.

One scholar called the latest changes “Orwellian.”

Barack’s Magic Pen

The Labor Department says employers added 113,000 jobs, less than the average monthly gain of 194,000 in 2013. This follows December’s tepid increase of just 75,000. Job gains have averaged only 154,000 the past three months, down from 201,000 in the preceding three months.

92 Million people unemployed and the rate has fallen to 6.6%? My math skills are weak at best, but even I know something is wrong here…
