Rocking in Iceland

This was quite real, but it could just as easily have been comedy material for NBC-TV's Saturday Night Live.  Or maybe not, because most of every SNL show in recent years is neither funny nor particularly witty.  Still. . .

Exhibiting sheer TV viewing agony this week, I expected to worsen my condition by tuning in to PBS-TV news, an almost always superior emetic.  Instead, I stumbled upon what should have been labeled pure comedy.  Yet, this was obviously serious stuff -- no, it was stuff that took itself seriously -- dragged directly from the bowels of the hysterical GW/CC (global warming/climate change) crowd.

My wildest thoughts rarely, never, involve Iceland, but there it was, stone-cold and, as one might expect, rather icy in appearance.  The occasion?  A gaggle of, I don't know, scientists or lunatics, maybe a combo, explained to drooling TV cameras their process for turning CO2 into rocks.  Taking a tip from volcanic activity, which itself turns CO2 into rocky substances (I think basalt and other substances come into play, but my ancient bachelor's degree concentrated neither on deep science nor lunacy, so I can't be confirmative here), these enthusiastic Icelander science folk provided a guided tour of their equipment, designed not to turn lead into gold, but to transform CO2 gases into rocks, and once one eliminates the somehow troublesome CO2 "problem," rocks are buried deep in the Earth. Or somewhere.

Dedicated they are, apparently hoping one day to cover the planet in CO2 rocks.  As usual, however,I'm a tad confused.  Don't trees and plants require CO2 to provide oxygen?  Don't we require oxygen derived from trees and plants to survive? Isn't CO2 what gives our soft drinks a fizz?  Isn't CO2 a part of our lives and naturally occurring about the planet long, long before we showed up?  And if it's so bad, how come we humans and other life forms even exist?  Should we be taxed by the state for breathing, since the mere act of unforgivable respirations creates CO2 gases?

Of more importance, can a soft drink company bottle syrup and CO2 rocks in the same container and through vigorous shaking produce a fizzy beverage?

Let's not be confused here -- we're not talking about cow farts or other sources of flatulence, including your uncle Harry, where methane enters the discussion.  Nope, this concerns pure CO2, and loony Icelandic scientists and their crazily salivating colleagues around the world have some inner demons demanding that they "do something" about it.  Me, I wonder what gas or established element they'll pursue once they dispense with CO2 and, as mentioned, methane.

Nevertheless, as I watched the PBS interview, mesmerized as one is mesmerized by the sight of goose poop on one's shoes, I found myself shouting at the TV:  "Lunatics!" I yelled.  More science based upon questionable computer projections and incomplete science.

May I suggest that CO2 is not the enemy?  Lunatic scientists, either  desperate for grant money or, perhaps more than we know, attempting to justify their inner need to "do something" about X, Y or Z are the enemy.  And when we're told, often, that the-science-is-in, allowing fanatical access to changing our lives or environment "for the better," that is just nuts.  Beware, beware, beware, 'cause it's we who receive the inevitable invoice demanding payment for expensive frivolities.

Today's Racism Corner:  "Good Morning America" host Amy Robach apologized on the air for saying colored people instead of people of color.  An apology?   See how much trouble we're in, thanks especially to word-police maniacs of the left?  I, in turn, shall henceforth demand that my white privilege be called privilege of white.  There, that settles that.

Everybody Loves a Liar

Public apathy steers the course of this government substantially.  Who cares if Manafort allegedly had some shady involvement with Russia in the Ukraine situation?  Who cares if Hillary's Huma reportedly had more to do with the radical side of Islam than we knew?  Cops are routinely assassinated merely because uninformed street scum eschew the statistical fact that law enforcement personnel annually kill more white people than black people, but why let truth get in the way when you're street-smart but veracity-dumb?  And YES, we did pay ransom to Iran for hostages, despite official denials based upon an entire administration of lies via the Obama bunch, but whom among the citizenry will stand up and call them out (the major media won't) to the point of action?

Who cares if lyin' Ryan Lochte (with a little help from his friends) tarnished the U.S. image during Olympics follies?  Me, I don't care a whit about this athletic exercise in foolishness, but it's somewhat satisfying to know lyin' Ryan's face won't be on a cereal box -- and I doubt he'd even be hired to so much as advertise a funeral home on TV and promise potential customers with a caring smile that the undertaker staff will never have sex with their deceased relatives.  Then again, that's the thing about an apathetic public -- they move on to other subjects quickly and all is forgiven, if not forgotten.

We suspect apathy will continue, even as the president will tell the United Nations in a few days that we will gladly accept at least another 200,000 Syrian refugees, many of whom will never, ever accept our way of life and will instead strive to impose Sharia -- or make our lives a constant, living hell as they use every option to invoke terror in the USA and abroad.  When people filled with hatred for their host country come to America and educate their children totally through their own schools and religion of hate, what kind of population will we eventually have in the ol' melting pot?  These are the folks who procreate faster than any other group, so numbers DO count, a lot.  And with whom are all those military age Islamic men coming in droves supposed to hook up with to produce offspring?  Or maybe the "how" is more important, since rapes are on the increase in European nations overwhelmed by these "refugees."  Did we hear that Sweden's rapes have increased by 700 percent since being swamped with the "religion of peace's" finest young men?

Apathy.  How does one dig out? 

Our power?  We can only shower members of Congress with angry phone calls and e-mails and tell them hell no, no more incoming, and instead house the refugees near their own homeland -- where expenses to the world will be far less than the economic and social costs currently previewed among unsuspecting citizens of countries who have no say in the matter of who will rape their daughters and kill their Sharia-denying sons.

Oh, and don't forget to put Angela Merkel on trial for crimes against her own people's safety and culture in Germany.  What a shining example this could be to the rest of the rational world -- including the United States, where such trials are urgently required regarding the Washington, D.C. political mob and their contacts (including religious "relief" agencies making out like the bandits they are whilst moving "refugees" about).

Entitlements:  Hillary Clinton intends to enjoy the biggest entitlement in the country because she's. . .entitled.

Obama:  The president who will be remembered for major victories which, unfortunately, devastated the American people he was supposed to represent.

The Zika furor:  Nature's little way of nudging humans to put a curb on population, but nobody listens until the "big one" -- the surprise disease we've not encountered yet -- arrives.  TV commercials instruct us about the "need" to soon accommodate another billion among the world's population -- but scarcely a peep is heard regarding the need to prevent human excess.  Regrettably, when we refuse to use those gifts known as brains, we ultimately deserve everything we get.

America Lost

Way back in the previous century, iconoclastic writer and mischievous anachronism Charles Fort wryly (or not) suggested that we might be the "property" of somebody or something unknown.  Today, life's rather a bit more complicated, as our very existence is claimed by all manner of passers-by, some visible and some not.  Currently, the Zika virus holds a patent especially relevant for a terrified birthing populace and wombs of war altered by microcephaly.

An even more virulent organism called Black Lives Matter just received donations of at least 100 million dollars, and with that we're sure some members will feel increasingly justified taking ownership of murdering innocent cops, even as the dangerously racist Obama Dept. of Justice continues to make big city police departments its own special property of federalization.  When did this chaos get a big push?  When Obama uttered those immortal words, "The police acted stupidly" early in his presidency.

Unfortunately, BLM, not common sense or facts, will influence the mobs of Milwaukee and other racially wretched cities, and the masses who least need one more day of rule under Democratic thugs will obediently choose the same slave master Democrats with smiling faces who have made their lives hell for decades.

Oh yes, Charlie Fort, we are property.  Of another variety.

Aetna and other health insurance companies falling under the weight of Obamacare could not have gone in any other direction, and the Obama bunch surely knew it.  Political operatives with an agenda had decades to put this guaranteed failure together so the United States can host the best socialized medicine system known to the progressive world.  When you vote in November, keep in mind how and why your health insurance rates are poised to climb way beyond reason.

Who do I want to lunch with?   The 19-year-old guy who climbed Trump Tower in a short-lived attempt to advise The Donald regarding his campaign.  No, I wouldn't anticipate genius, but all of this must be good for a laugh.  Speaking of laughs, how true to form the leftists are when Trump cracks jokes or becomes sarcastic -- these folks cannot take humor directed toward them and, when it comes to comedy, their ability for appreciating self-deprecation is about as absent as guffaws from ISIS when you make Mohammad jokes.

Delta Airlines and the Temple of Doom:  Well, at least the flying public has something besides TSA agent groping to worry about.  Yep, a little short, a little spark, a little fire -- and a lot o' digital in the mix, and what d'ya got?  Computer chaos.  Man oh man, I can't wait until we go totally digital, unless Yellowstone blows sky-high first and we need to worry about lava and rocks raining from the heights. 

The digital thing reminds me of a local resource recovery place that traded mercury thermometers for digital ones a few years ago.  I foolishly fell for the affair and traded in one of two cherished oral mercury devices.  Wish I hadn't, for the battery went dead and I had no replacement when it was needed.  Say what you want about mercury -- darned reliable stuff when you need to take a temperature this month, next year or 10 years down the road. In fact, when I was a kid a dentist gave me a small vial of mercury to play with. . .and so far as I can tell, I'm not dead yet.

Actually, I believe there are still a few unused rectal mercury thermometers around the house, but they seem to lack purpose currently.  Maybe I should donate them for insertion (so to speak) at the DNC convention in 2020.

The 2016 Olympics:  Funny thing, I still don't give a damn about these overwhelmingly pampered folk who spend years doing. . .perfecting. . .concentrating on. . .well, sorry, for me it's like watching amphibians cross the road.  And in the end, it's all about them, and don't we just love to pay big money to support and compensate ego?  Green pool water, floating corpses and violent robberies in Rio pretty much exemplify the concept of modern Olympics for me.  Maybe my Olympic torch burned out with brain tissue because I just don't get it.  If only people would put as much effort into defeating rat-bastard politicians. . .

Election News:  Try Voting for the Supreme Court in November, not so much for a president.  We are so in hell.

An Inconvenient Muslim

Okay, let's not tarry, for the message is clear:  The Democratic National Committee, during its convention, whored out the memory of a battlefield-dead military officer of the Muslim faith to enhance its stand against Donald Trump.  Yes, just a week before, the Republicans had brought out a Benghazi victim's mother as a little reminder of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama's pathetic leadership resulting in the loss of lives -- though, again, we emphasize that, as far as we know, Trump isn't responsible for incompetence leading to the deaths of American government personnel anywhere on the planet.

While the son of Mr. and Mrs. Khan obviously acquired hero status on that terrible occasion in 2004 when an IED ended his life, we were stunned to learn via an article by Walid Shoebat ( that the father allegedly has a very interesting history.  He is an immigration lawyer intent upon bringing in Muslims, apparently for pay, has connections to the Muslim Brotherhood -- and is a proponent for Sharia Law.  Questions have also come up about whether Hillary Clinton's assistant Huma was the brains behind bringing the parents in to speak at the convention.  Interestingly, attorney Khan just removed his Web page, though a snapshot of it can be found online.

We've little doubt that the DNC knew very well that a firestorm would erupt from the Trump side following stinging comments and accusations by Mr. Khan, and now veterans and Goldstar Mothers from coast to coast are upset with Trump's barrage of, shall we say, poorly considered responses.

Walid Shoebat's roots spring from his own confessed involvement with radical Islam long ago, but he escaped its wreckage and went on to spend his efforts warning the world about Islam's horrors.  Of interest to me is Shoebat's take on young Muslim men who join the military services of the U.S. and other countries, insisting that many of them join mainly in order to bolster Islam among fellow servicemen -- that is, there exists an aggressive agenda to spread Islam's poison throughout every aspect of society, even to the point of using the U.S. Constitution as a weapon against us.

How horrifying that we have a president and Democratic Party more than willing to accommodate Mohammad's Trojan Horse.  We long for eventual arrests and indictments of those on the "inside" who allow, encourage and actively participate in a mostly quiet, but overwhelming political insurrection in the USA.  We have laws.

Zika? Who cares?  The Obama bunch continues to maintain open borders and a policy of letting any and all disease-carrying folk into the country, gifting us with an ever-fresh bouquet of untreated and untreatable tuberculosis, measles, chicken pox, mumps, polio-like symptoms and exotic diseases generally alien to the U.S.  Not to be harsh, but the next time Mr. Obama passes you pregnant ladies on the street, be sure to tell him "thanks a lot" for helping put you and your passenger in spine-chilling jeopardy due to border "issues."

Incidentally -- we love how people are advised to apply insect repellent liberally to ward off mosquito invasions.  Does anybody care that pretty much anything one applies topically gets absorbed through the skin to some degree, leaving it up to internal organs to deal with poisonous consequences way down the road?  This is not rocket science.  How do you think nicotine (and a host of other) skin-applied patches function?  One's designation of "small" or "irrelevant" amounts of a substance probably depend upon the targeted individual's tolerance and genetics.

By the way, my personal repellent preference is flypaper designed to attract and trap stupid politically progressive ideas.

Megalomaniac NY governor Andrew Cuomo can't just stand by and watch the Pokemon Go craze continue without warning that children everywhere are in danger from sex predators, and he pushed legislation to make sure potential offenders can't play the game.  This jerk, who originally campaigned for his job by promising unsuccessfully to ban mandates driving people and business out of the state -- and now has enemies from all sides of politics -- just can't, like most progressives, keep his hands off any "problem," either potential or imagined.  I'm no medical professional, but I'm beginning to think the country needs a stable of psychiatrists to thoroughly examine the politically powerful who hover threateningly in high places.

The Olympic games:  Funny that games organized to reflect mutual respect and friendly competition are, in 2016, in sharp contrast to a world full of hatred, war, uncertainty and increasing panic. Oh -- and what was that news story last week about a corpse discovered floating in a stretch of water where competitors will be required to immerse themselves?  At minimum, we assume the cleanup crew made this little glitch disappear for the moment.

Sharyl Attkisson's syndicated "Full Measure" TV program continues to alert us about government horrors in small doses during each weekly half-hour show.  Put down the can of beer, turn away from Obama's blather and check it out.
