“Michele Bachmann” makes it to SNL

September 18th, 2009 – 3:03 PM by Bob von Sternberg

Rep. Michele Bachmann (actually, a reasonable satiric facsimile) made an appearance on Saturday Night Live’s Thursday in a sketch that lampooned Republicans’ response to President Obama’s health care address last week. Her moment in the sun comes a little over a minute into the clip.

Good for Michele!

The skit was funny, but you would rarely see something like that from the Hollyweird Liberal Left making fun of a leftist like Obama.

It’s interesting that I talked to Michele Bachmann at a Tea Party in St. Cloud on Saturday, and now the left is attacking her on SNL!

Her website doesn’t state her party affiliation. Could you fill us in?

Yes, 2Dim — you probably think there’s some connection between your talking to her and the parody of her on SNL.

That’s pretty typical of a paranoid schizophrenic.

I can totally imagine her saying something like that.

- Erkall Mackbee, some of the logs I split are too big for even a couple of “men” like Comrade Partisan and Blew to lift together. Do you think these logs just magically jump up on to the splitter themselves?

By the way, I’m doing a good deed for environmentalism by taking down and disposing of disease spreading Oak Wilt infested trees. In fact, I’m splitting the ones now because my former lesbian neighbor couple refused to control their diseased trees, resulting in the spread of disease to the ones I’m dealing with now.

I’m not trying to pick on lesbians, but we offered to help but thet weren’t interested in having their space invaded.

Tiny are you saying she’s “normal”? She makes sh1t up (remember how she claimed to see a secret report that Iran was going to partition Iraq?) She refuses to particpate in the census. She thinks members of congress should be investigated for “anti-American” activities. She questions the Fed chairman whether the Fed has a right to exist. She’s an embarassment to the state.

But if you think she’s great — I’ll note that you’re in full agreement with 2Dim once again.

Their liberalism isn’t anything unusal in the House 2Dim. There are reps in congress who are far more liberal than either one of them. Many states have at least a few liberal reps.

No what is unusual is a rep who is a frequent guest on news programs who says things that are factually inaccurate…or show a complete misunderstanding or disregard of history. That’s what’s embarassing.

Jim, nice try to divert attention away from MB towards Amy. You probably cringe whenever MB opens her mouth on TV like most people. I would imagine it must be even harder if she’s your rep and most-closely represents your views.

Any criticism of Kloubechar — warranted or not — will never be as interesting as a cougar like MB trying to get the prez in a lip lock.

SNL is finally making the connection between the nation’s two premier conserva-gals Palin and Darlin’ Michele. As brain dead conservative extremist Know Nothings, they are both comedy gold, as SNL is well aware.

Wacko-Crazy sells, especially when the two Loony Ladies have retained their svelt conserva-cheerleader shape! Super Hot, as long as the wrinkle cream is liberally (so to speak) applied.

But no, 6th Doofus Man, Darlin’ Michele hasn’t the slightest clue about the budget fiasco, sorry to say—she hasn’t the slightest clue about anything, including ACORN. Reality is not her bag, fantasy and hallucination is.

She’s simply too darn stupid, and too much of a gorger of right wing sewage to know anything, or to have any connection to reality. Her brain is long gone as a functioning organ. She goes out and blats whatever extremist nonsense that her staff puts in front of her that day.

She gets away with it because she only talks to those that agree with her (“Values Voter” Conference—oy) and runs away from any actual debate where her craziness and profound ignorance would be too evident. The state’s press has long ago decided to give Darlin Michele a pass.

As I said, she’s comedy gold. SNL should have a recurring skit on her every month—although typically she will have generated so much “material” for mockery in that time that the writers won’t know where to begin.

So keep yappin’, Darlin’ Michele, Queen of the Brain Dead MN 6th! Today Bachmannistan, tomorrow, SNL! I prophetize a live guest appearance with Lady Sarah Birdbrain of AK herself!!—the highest ratings of the season! Go SNL!

D2 the lumberjack …

D2 decides to become a lumberjack and travels out into the wilderness to a logging camp for an interview. While he’s being shown around he notices that there are no women in the camp, and asks the foreman what they do for sex.
The foreman points to a barrel with a hole in its side and tells him to stick his pecker in the hole and his needs will be taken care of.

So D2 does as he’s told and
sticks his pecker in the hole.

It’s fantastic and he enjoys it over and over again.

Later he tells the foreman how enjoyable it was and that he is gonna be enjoying it everyday.
The foreman tells him…well you can enjoy it everyday but Thursday.

Why not on Thurdays?, he asks,

Well D2, thats because Thursday is your turn in the barrel.

As Sinclair Lewis once observed, “when fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross”. He couldn’t have been more accurate.

Fundamentalist Darlin’ Michele and her gaggle of “values voting” conservative Know Nothings, with their cries of “anti-American!”, “soc*alism!” and “revolution!”, are the first buds of corn-pone Nazism.

They only are willing to accede to majority rule democracy when one of “their” tribe is in the WH—then any amount of executive lawbreaking and power grabbing causes them not the slightest alarm at all. Because if a right wing “patriot” prez is behaving dictatorially and bypassing Congress—that’s great!

As soon as their conservative tribe loses the executive branch, however, then the president’s every action (such as–gasp–proposing that Congress pass legislation!) is “tyranny”, “oppression”, “anti-American” and “taking away our cherished freedoms”!

This is profoundly authoritarian, and demonstrates the Right’s actual hatred of democracy—they’re only on board with the constitutional system if THEY are running the show. If not, their talk very quickly turns to “tyranny” and “revolution” and killing their “soc*alist” opponents (“Watering the tree of liberty!”)

There is a danger as the economy sinks further (caused by failed “conservative” policies of course) that corn pone Nazism will gain a foothold. Economic hardship, fear and ethnic anger was exactly what the REAL Der Fuhrer stoked and manipulated. And that’s what we see America’s brain dead Right trying to pull today.

Dangerous stuff—but for them, it’s Party over Country, always.

And they way they handled opposition was much the same as the way the right does today — blame minorities for the problems of society. if you repeat a lie often enough, people start believing it. If someone opposes you, question their patriotism…etc…

And who is blaming mionorites for all our problems? It’s true that blacks have a higher percentage of violent criminals and welfare recipients than other groups, but I blame that on liberals who enc0raged black to become dependent on taxpayers and have replaced fathers with government in the welfare community. The democrat party has done more to harm blacks than even Robert Byrd’s KKK.

The massive invasion of illegal aliens is also causing a lot of problems including raising the cost of healthcare for all of us, but I don’t blame them for illegally crossing our borders. I blame liberal democrats and RINO republicans for doing nothing about the seri0us problem. Obama is making the problem even worse with his promise of granting them all amnesty. This is only enc0raging more of them to flood across our border.

There was NO conservative movement in Germany from 1918-45!!

Cutting off all federal taxpayer dollars to ACORN (The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) is a good start, but Congress and the Executive Branch must do more.

The American people deserve no less than a full-scale, no-stone-unturned Congressional investigation.

It is now clear that ACORN – which is national in scope and exerts a dangerous influence over politicians and the political process at the local and national levels – is not just a far-left political organization that is not beyond bending or breaking a few laws to advance a radical agenda.

In fact, apparent lawlessness by ACORN representatives seems to be part of the organization’s modus operandi.

ACORN’s true colors were exposed during last year’s presidential campaign when the self-proclaimed community organizing group was implicated in several instances of voter registration fraud and other illicit activity to the benefit of Barack Obama.

Now we learn that ACORN workers in major cities across the country (Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Brooklyn and two cities in California so far) were caught on tape advising undercover documentarians on how to lie to the government so they could establish a brothel for underage, illegal immigrant girls.

The fact that ACORN has been the recipient of your tax dollars – at least 53 million since 1994 – for so many years is egregious. Especially when you consider that the group’s workings and dealings appear to replicate those of an organized criminal enterprise.

That’s why merely cutting off government funding for ACORN – which is a good start – simply does not go far enough.

We need an ACORN Commission. Heads need to roll… long prison sentences should eventually be handed out… and yes, ACORN’s ties to the liberal political establishment must be part of such an investigation.

A message needs to be sent. No group can commit such atrocious acts and get away with it.

ACORN must be stopped cold and it’s up to concerned and patriotic Americans like us to make it happen.

D2 says….
“Hitler was a soci@list and leader of the Nazi National Soci@list Party.”

Wikipedia says…
Among the key elements of Nazism were anti-parliamentarism, Pan-Germanism, racism, collectivism, eugenics, antisemitism, ANTI-COMMUNISM, totalitarianism and opposition to economic liberalism and political liberalism.

Gee D2, Except for anti-semitism that sounds like your kind of party. Note that the nation of Israel (had) collectives: kibbutzes. Since you’re pro-Israel I’m sure you’re okay with collectivism too.

But Nazi anti-semiticism was a combination of crackpot eugenics theory and anti-liberalism. A right wing Jew was an oxymoron. That kind of happened when land ownership became possible. The right wing Israeli expansionist movement you embrace, not to mention the nation of Israel, did not yet exist. Today any criticism of Israel’s own xenophobic policies towards minorities is conveniently denounced as anti-semiticism, although changing them is Israel’s only hope for lasting peace in the neighborhood. Those policies have far more with RW embrace of the Stockholm Syndrome than the Oslo Accords.

I visited a kibbutze while visiting my relatives in Israel. Not only did they have strict security requirements to enter, they had bomb shelters in the middle of their children’s playgounds and made them go in their daily and plauy to achieve a comfort level incase of an Islamic terror attack.

I’m sure that these kibbutze’s had more to do with keeping their people safe than any Marxist idiology. People under attack will do whatever is necessary to survive. During WW2, American’s pulled together as well to defeat Hitler’s Nation Soci@list Nazi Party.

2Dim – I’m tired of explaining this to you, so this is the last time:

The STATE OF ISRAEL is secular. That means it’s not an official part of any religion, nor does it endorse any religion. There is freedom of religion in Israel. You don’t have to be Jewish to live there. There are muslims who are citizens of Israel. There are christians who are citizens.

There are Jews that live in Iraq. There are Jews that live in Iran…and Egypt…and just about every other muslim country in the world.

Just because you disagree with the policies of the STATE OF ISRAEL, does not make you an anti-Semite.

So now let me ask you this: in 1982, Ariel Sharon ordered the Iraeli army to liquidiate an entire refugee camp of Palestineans – men, women, and children. I think that was wrong. Does that make me an anti-Semite?

Anti-Semitism has been going on for much longer than the State of Israel has existed, as the Jews living in Arab countries will tell you.

There is no question that in the middle east conflict, the Muslims have been the aggressors the vast majority of the time, having no problem blowing up innocent women and children.

U.S. Media Ignoring About Face by Leading Global Warming Proponent

So why was a speech last week by Prof. Mojib Latif of Germany’s Leibniz Institute not given more prominence?

Latif is one of the leading climate modellers in the world. He is the recipient of several international climate-study prizes and a lead author for the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). He has contributed significantly to the IPCC’s last two five-year reports that have stated unequivocally that man-made greenhouse emissions are causing the planet to warm dangerously.

Yet last week in Geneva, at the UN’s World Climate Conference–an annual gathering of the so-called “scientific consensus” on man-made climate change –Latif conceded the Earth has not warmed for nearly a decade and that we are likely entering “one or even two decades during which temperatures cool.”

“what American career choice tops this?”

Well, I was just quoting you on “most educated”, 6DJ, which to me means somewhat more than “how long is the training before one can bill for puncturing an infected boil on a butt”.

After studying a pre-determined “pre-med” program, doctors get their academic degree (an MD) after 4 years of medical school. After that, there is no additional required academic degree and are many years of additional hands-on training— but this clinical training is going on even in medical school. So doctors are “working” (with patients under strict and not so strict supervision) fairly rapidly.

Clinical, internship, residency, etc. is just more training, usually with some institution making some money off their “work” even as trainees. It mostly seems to be a matter of how many years do MDs have to see patients under “supervision”. I suppose you could call this “education”. Another word would be “apprenticeship”.

But as you may have guessed, I don’t really define years of training before one gets to be an independent billing unit as years of “education”, although that’s clearly your definition.

Doctors spend a huge amount of time studying “medicine”, but are not particulary “educated” as people, IMO. Their training is for the most part heavily weighted towards biological science for obvious reasons. They are usually woefully ignorant of very basic knowledge in history, philosophy, politics, literature, natural science, and the arts. Certainly these topics form very little of their “education”.

Their training is so narrow in scope that medicine is about all they ever learn. Hence despite their years of medical training, it is quite dubious to call them America’s “most educated”. They likely are America’s “most trained”, I’ll give you that.

It also seems to me that their education for some reason seems to make most of them exceptionally interested in material matters—golf trips, ski vacations, car n’ driver trivia, second homes, stuffin’ their oversize houses with high end consumer crapola, financial investments, mindless travel to the sun belt, luxury dining (steak houses), etc. A nation’s true intelligensia is far less interested in such stuff and always has been.

So as for carrying on an interesting conversation at, say, a party, doctors aren’t very well “prepared” by their decade or so of training. I’ve learned to steer clear, since they are so often crashing bores adept only at talking about themselves. This is obviously a personal view, and of course there are exceptions.

The top 1% of wage earners pay about half of the taxes, while the lowest 50% pays very little if any.

“but transitioning to high efficiency lights and HVACs and electric cars will destroy the economy?”

The left has been all bent out of shape about mercury pollution, but now they are happy that millions of mercury laced CFL’s will end up in our landfills. If this wasn’t a liberal idea, the leftist Sierra Club would be outraged. Also, I’ve got nothing against using alternative forms of energy, but let’s not ban what we have before replacements are feasible.

“One where caring for the sick isn’t a Christian value but torturing people is?”

Government has no business taking over our healthcare system. Let’s start controlling the costs of healthcare by doing things such as controlling illegal immigration and enacting tort reform.

Liberals love to complain about how insurance companies add cost to healthcare, but they fail to admit that government would be much less efficient. Look at our liberal welfare system for example. For every dollar spent on welfare, only about a dime or so gets to the recipient, the rest gets lost in government beurocracy.

Because the rest of the world put’s the US to shame on every measurable health metric, and we think it’s very, very, corrupt that we have to have 50 million uninsured running around while the rest of us are paying many times what the rest of the world pays while 25% are being denied coverage when they end up needing it.

For every dollar spent on welfare, only about a dime or so gets to the recipient, the rest gets lost in government beurocracy.

For every dollar spent on welfare, only about a dime or so gets to low income recipients, the rest is given as subsidies to agribusiness, timber and mining interests.

“US media ignoring about face by global warming proponent…”

It’s not being covered that way because the media article that your rightwing sewage troughs used to create your cut n’ paste misreported what Latif said at the presentation.

When one looks at his actual remarks, Latif was speaking hypothetically, asking how would scientists respond IF short term natural variation didn’t generate a new record high temp year in the next few years.

He simply didn’t say that “we are likely entering” a multi-decade cooling phase, or make any such prediction, so your sewage troughs misled you again—not that you care.

As for the long debunked GW “petition”, you don’t even know what it says. It was the subject of a National Academy of Sciences press statement declaring that it intentionally misled people into thinking it was associated with the NAS when it wasn’t.

Most researchers who has looked into it have declared the names to be an unverifiable mess—so we don’t know anything about many of the signatories or their claimed credentials.

And of course it goes without saying that many claimed “scientist” signatories (such as MDs) know nothing about climate science, so their opinion on the subject is not of great merit or weight–to rational people anyway.

But 6DJ, you of course have far more “respect” for the “scientists” outside the field of climatology who signed that goofball petition than you do for the US government climate scientists at NASA. Because you are ignorant about climate science, but are certain that you don’t like the implications of that science!

Greg, Michele Bachmann has views very similar to what our Founding Fathers had, while the modern day democrat soci@list party has a lot in common with Karl Marx, Hugo Chavez, and Fidel Castro.

Example:

“And lemme tell ya, before you say “Oh, it’s a commu–”, you need to go down there and see what Fidel Castro put in place. And I want you to know, now, you can think whatever you want to about Fidel Castro, but he was one of the brightest leaders I have ever met. [APPLAUSE]

And you know, the Cuban revolution that kicked out the wealthy, Che Guevara did that, and then, after they took over, they went out among the population to find someone who could lead this new nation, and they found…well, just leave it there (laughs), an attorney by the name of Fidel Castro…”

There’s other non-terrorists in Palestine, both Jewish and non Jewish, who think that if Israelis going to pepper the West Bank with their settlements and deny the Palestinians water rights etc, that maybe a one state solution with full citizenship and freedom of movement for Palestinians would be more fair after all.

But no, the only solution for Palestine is something very familiar to the Jewish /American experience: ghettoes (i.e. reservations) The only travel the state of Israel is willing to grant the descendants of the indigenous population of Palestine, the people they displaced, would be a one way pass for a permanent exodus from the region.

“but that’s about it”

I hope DD is correct.

But the problem with our two party “system” is that the out-of-power party (no matter how brain dead, corrupt, and filled with cretins, like today’s Repubs) is the only alternative.

National election reform (which allowed a multiplicity of parties to obtain some power) would immensely improve our democracy, and allow catastrophically failed parties (like the Repubs) to be consigned to permanent oblivion and ultimate dissolution—the fate they richly deserve.

But such reform is quite unlikely in hopelessly inert, tradition-bound America, with its entrenched special interests and armies of apologists for the status quo.

Hence, the brain dead Repub party and corrupt “conservative” movement can always theoretically bounce back, especially when the MSM make certain that the underlying reasons for the current economic meltdown and endless crises (i.e brain dead conservative policies) are not very well understood by the ordinary voter.

“Federal agents from Denver and New York to Pakistan are still racing to solve an Al Qaeda bomb plot, unsure whether the arrest of three suspects has put the terror gang out of business.

“They’re still looking,” a senior counterterror official told the Daily News. As to whether they have identified all the conspirators, “nobody knows the answer for sure,” the official said.”

But the FRAUD tiny brain screeches “FREE Najibullah”.

“We think we have a pretty good handle on the threat, but we’d know a lot more if Afzali hadn’t tipped them in the beginning,” another insider said.

How abot the Washington Times for the NEA story- is that good enough?

Here is an excerpt:
“This is just the beginning,” NEA officials told callers. “This is the first telephone call of a brand new conversation. We are just now learning how to really bring this community together to speak with the government. What that looks like legally?…bare with us as we learn the language so that we can speak to each other safely…”.

Initial investigations by the Washington Times suggested further wrongdoing. Sargent told the Times that the NEA had not sent out invitations to the conference call, a claim that was later exposed as a lie when the paper posted screenshots of the invitation, which clearly shows that Sargent himself sent them out.

Within two days of the conference call, according to a piece from the Washington Times, 16 arts organizations endorsed the President’s health care plan (public option, and all). Those same organizations received nearly $2 million in grants from the NEA during the four months prior to the conference call.

Well, we have a timetable to get out of Iraq. Did we have that type of commitment before the election? Afghanistan is sinking into chaos. Should we just wash our hands of it and walk away? The difference is O inheirited these issues, he didn’t create them. Perhaps that explains part of the loss of passion.
Tiny is right about the wiretapping issue, however. It’s still going on and it does not seem to bother the same folks that it did when W was in office. Whether that’s because the W administration was not up front with it in the beginning, or evidence of a vast leftwing conspiracy, I don’t know.

“CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — A man who once claimed he fathered the child of John Edwards’ mistress now says in a book proposal that the former presidential candidate is the baby’s father.

The New York Times reported Saturday that Edwards asked his campaign finance chairman to hide the paternity of Rielle Hunter’s child. The claims are in a book proposal by former Edwards aide Andrew Young.

The newspaper reports Young wrote that Edwards told Hunter they would marry after Edwards’ wife died. His wife, Elizabeth, has cancer.

Edwards has denied he fathered the child. He has acknowledged that federal investigators are looking into his campaign funds.

Hunter’s attorney and a spokeswoman for Edwards each declined comment Saturday. A lawyer for Young did not immediately return messages.”

Im sorry but this man is the biggest sack of dog sh:t Ive ever heard of. I hope the liberals on this site (the ones who work themselves into a delirious frenzy everytime a republican is caught in a restroom with another man) will admit that this one ranks up there with the most disgraceful of all time. I know he never campaigned on “family values” but Jesus Christ this guy deserves to get d:ck cancer.

Yes the bad thing about a Kerry presidency would have been an Edwards vice-presidency. Better than Cheney on balance but almost as bad as a Quayle.
I never did quite trusted Edward’s brand of populist demagoguery.

Cheating on a wife who has cancer kind of reminds me of Bob Dole and Elizabeth Dole’s affair to remember, when Dole divorced his dying wife for Liz. But at least he made an honest woman of her, didn’t he?

By the way, I’m actually going to give you the benefit of the doubt since you’re not from the south…you probably don’t realize it, but the “Obammy” is a pretty nasty thing to call him. To white northerners, it just sounds like a funny way to say his name, but to blacks and to people from the south, they know that it’s supposed to sound like “mammy”, which is a derogatory term for a black woman.

DB, you left out the part where he said Dave Matthews would perform at the wedding. In the days before KK’s blog went away and all you people came over to BQ, I was one of Edwards’ harshest critics when this came out. He is a truly a piece of garbage, and I will forever despise him and his b.s. What’s truly sick is only now when he’s hated by just about everyone is he willing to admit his paternity. THANK GOD this man did not become VP.

I’ve always been supportive of our actions in Afghanistan – from day 1. I support the president in considering sending more troops there. If O.D. wasn’t such a partisan hack, I’m sure he’d support it too — but if it comes from Obama, then it must be bad, even if it makes sense.

Newt has since left the woman he dumped his 2nd wife for. He’s hooked up with a trophy wife 23 years his senior. And he left the Baptist faith to become a Catholic. Some people still think he’s a viable presidential candidate too. LOL.

File this under Laws of Unintended Consequences:

Going after ACORN may be like shooting fish in a barrel lately — but jumpy lawmakers used a bazooka to do it last week and may have blown up some of their longtime allies in the process.

The congressional legislation intended to defund ACORN, passed with broad bipartisan support, is written so broadly that it applies to “any organization” that has been charged with breaking federal or state election laws, lobbying disclosure laws, campaign finance laws or filing fraudulent paperwork with any federal or state agency. It also applies to any of the employees, contractors or other folks affiliated with a group charged with any of those things.

In other words, the bill could plausibly defund the entire military-industrial complex. Whoops.

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) picked up on the legislative overreach and asked the Project on Government Oversight (POGO) to sift through its database to find which contractors might be caught in the ACORN net.

Lockheed Martin and Northrop Gumman both popped up quickly, with 20 fraud cases between them, and the longer list is a Who’s Who of weapons manufacturers and defense contractors.

The language was written by the GOP and filed as a “motion to recommit” in the House, where it passed 345-75. It carried the Senate by an 83-7 margin.

Don’t get too excited yet Deacon. A little further down from Dan’s quote we find:

“The weapons manufacturers might have a better line of defense in court, however. Immediately after the bill passed, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), a constitutional whiz, noted that the measure appeared to be a “bill of attainder” — specifically targeting a company or organization or individual — and is therefore specifically barred by the Constitution. If it’s not targeted at one group, then Northrop Grumman is in trouble.”

In other words, break out the lawyers. Dora asked about this type of thing earlier in the thread. I’d like to see legislation that applies to ACORN apllied to any other federally funded organization too. Fair is fair.

The “Globull Warming” Challenge.

For the “Reality challenged”:

SAN FRANCISCO -(Dow Jones)- PG&E Corp. (PCG) said Tuesday it is leaving the U.S. Chamber of Commerce over objections to what its top executive called the chamber’s “extreme position on climate change.”

In a letter to the U.S. Chamber published on PG&E’s blog, www next100.com, PG& E Chairman and Chief Executive Peter Darbee wrote that company employees “find it dismaying that the Chamber neglects the indisputable fact that a decisive majority of experts have said the data on global warming are compelling and point to a threat that cannot be ignored.”

The U.S. Chamber has been a vocal critic of climate legislation pending in the Senate, most recently suggesting that the U.S. hold a “Scopes-like” trial to debate evidence that climate change is man-made.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has demurred on the request, saying that its proposed finding that global warming poses a danger to public health is based on sound science.

PG&E said that, in contrast with the U.S. Chamber’s stance, the approaches toward climate-change legislation taken by the utility industry group Edison Electric Institute and the broader industry group U.S. Climate Action Partnership, in which PG&E is a member, are “constructive” and “consensus- driven.”

I guess you do agree, on medical doctors having the most education, if one can define what the meaning of
“education” is. This is all done on the govt dime/funding as well, so isnt it so odd that the trial lawyers are unleashed upon the medical field, while legislators, the military, even state and local govts have major or complete tort shields for their decisions.
Yet, doctors are left hanging in a field where pretty much every decision can be second-guessed.

Little wonder then: why our doctors order 500-700 billion!!! (ouch) in needless tests every year. Our govt in action!

On Monday, that noted hyperconservative NYT columnist Revkin:

By ANDREW C. REVKIN
Published: September 21, 2009
The world leaders who met at the United Nations to discuss climate change on Tuesday are faced with an intricate challenge: building momentum for an international climate treaty at a time when global temperatures have been relatively stable for a decade and may even drop in the next few years.

The plateau in temperatures has been seized upon by skeptics as evidence that the threat of global warming is overblown. And some climate experts worry that it could hamper treaty negotiations and slow the progress of legislation to curb carbon dioxide emissions in the United States.

Scientists say the pattern of the last decade — after a precipitous rise in average global temperatures in the 1990s — is a result of cyclical variations in ocean conditions and has no bearing on the long-term warming effects of greenhouse gases building up in the atmosphere.

But trying to communicate such scientific nuances to the public — and to policy makers — can be frustrating, they say.

Mojib Latif, a prize-winning climate and ocean scientist from the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences at the University of Kiel, in Germany, wrote a paper last year positing that cyclical shifts in the oceans were aligning in a way that could keep temperatures over the next decade or so relatively stable, even as the heat-trapping gases linked to global warming continued to increase.

But Dr. Latif, who gives about 200 talks to the public, business leaders and officials each year, said he had been met with confusion and even anger when he tried to describe this normal variation in climate while at the same time conveying the long-term threat of global warming.

“People understand what I’m saying, but then basically wind up saying, ‘We don’t believe anything,’ ” he said in a telephone interview.

Other climate researchers dispute Dr. Latif’s forecast, saying that climate cannot be reliably predicted on such a short time scale, though even they agree that sooner or later, cool stretches are inevitable.

Parth:
look, climate researchers in dispute, who knew they werent all in lockstep?
As I say:
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Adios, got better things for today!

monty says:

September 23rd, 2009 at 8:27 am

Jim, what are you laughing at this time? Did you miss this part:

“he had been met with confusion and even anger when he tried to describe this normal variation in climate while at the same time conveying the long-term threat of global warming”

In other words, short term climate variation has little to do with long term global warming. Yeah, that’s funny as heck. And climate researchers in dispute? Of course there are differeing opinions, as has been said before, no one has the final word on ANYTHING in science. There is , however, a pretty large degree of consensus on what is going on. This, from the NYT:

“Most climate scientists stand firm in their projections of centuries of rising seas and other disruptive effects of a warming planet if humans take no steps to reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases”

2Dim, what are you — Norwegian or something? People said the same things about the Scandanavians coming here back in the late 1800s. A lot of the Swedes and Norwegians who came here were soc1a1ists and/or communists — certainly a larger percentage than the Somalis that are fundamentalist.

I’m grateful we have the opportunity to have Somalis living here. The ones I know are hard working, friendly, moral, don’t drink or use drugs, take pride in their neighborhoods and respect authority — and they believe in “family values”. Like the Hmong people, I’m sure they’re going to gradually integrate into our society and eventually become more Minnesotan than Somali.

In fact, I’d bet if the MN GOP reached out to them, they’d be committed Republicans by the time they became citizens. The DFL reached out to Hmong people when they came here, now that many of them are US citizens, guess how they vote?

Given the fact that Somalis and conservative Americans share a lot of the same values, why do you suppose the GOP isn’t seizing this opportunity?

Add DD to that list.

Add 94.7% of climate scientists to that list as well.

A conference of global warming skeptics is scheduled for May 2010. They plan to examine the “growing divide between what science has to say about the causes, scale, and consequences of climate change, on the one hand, and what politicians and the media say on the other hand”. This is an important and illuminating topic. One hopes (rather futilely) that the agenda will include the paper Examining the Scientific Consensus on Climate Change (Doran 2009). The authors surveyed 3146 earth scientists, asking them the following survey question:

Do you think human activity is a significant contributing factor in changing mean global temperatures?

What is most interesting is that the authors categorised the scientists based on their level of expertise in climate science. For example, those considered the most qualified were climate scientists who had more than 50% of their peer-reviewed publications in the past 5 years on the subject of climate change. The results are shown in Figure 1:

What they find was as the level of active research and specialization in climate science increases, so does agreement that humans are significantly changing global temperatures. Most striking is the divide between expert climate scientists (97.4%) and the general public (58%). The paper concludes:

It seems that the debate on the authenticity of global warming and the role played by human activity is largely nonexistent among those who understand the nuances and scientific basis of long-term climate processes. The challenge, rather, appears to be how to effectively communicate this fact to policy makers and to a public that continues to mistakenly perceive debate among scientists.

Ng is Chinese. I don’t know much about St Paul politics, but I do know about Hmong folks — I did some anthro work on Hmong culture back in ye olde grad school days.

You can most always tell by the last name, which comes from their clan. There are something like 16 or so Hmong clans, and with few exceptions, Hmong people are members of one — so if they don’t have a Hmong last name, they’re probably not Hmong. Here are the ones I remember:

Chang
Chu
Yang
Vang
Moua
Hang
Kong
Her
Lee (obviously could also be Korean or Chinese)
Lor
Xiong

…can’t think of the other ones, but I believe there are 16.

Hmong culture is cool and interesting — basically they’ve been kicking people’s butts for the last 700 years or so. They were a tremendous asset for us in Vietnam — many Hmong died saving American lives. (just trying to head off the obligatory criticism that 2Dim will undoubtedly toss out there).

Shame you couldn’t have stayed awake long enough to read “It seems that the debate on the authenticity of global warming and the role played by human activity is largely nonexistent among those who understand the nuances and scientific basis of long-term climate processes.”

Head. Sand. Whatever.

My favorite amongst the wilder cosmological theories is the concept of parallel universes.

Somewhere out there, there’s an UptownDan, composed of antimatter, that believes global warming is a liberal/soci@list hoax.

Would that mean D2 is a homosexual prostitute?

wait ..

He’s a closet homosexual already however,

it may mean he’a trying desperately to get with cindy sheehan from his place in the parralel because he’s convinced it’s a divine order from his gay pastor?

I think it would be pretty funny if we detained Amadinejad during his stay in NYC and told Iran we wouldn’t give him back until those hikers were released.

My biggest worry though would be they tell us to keep him.

Jesus Greg I took off the top of the old bald head under the table battling it out with Roosevelt and with these blood thinners can’t stop bleeding. Feeling kind of dizzy now been in and out of consciousness.

“Jesus Greg I took off the top of the old bald head under the table battling it out with Roosevelt and with these blood thinners can’t stop bleeding. Feeling kind of dizzy now been in and out of consciousness.”

If it’s your head you need to go to a doc quickly and smoke a couple fatties real quick .. that’ll stop the bleeding.

Greg 63 says:

September 23rd, 2009 at 11:41 am

Tiny ..

Another thing you should do is try putting a kotex on your head for the bleeding. After you do that, send me a picture so we know you did it right.

But seriously, if you’re going in and out of conciousness you need to see a doc QUICKLY.

“NEW YORK (Fortune) — The title of Michael Moore’s latest film, “Capitalism: A Love Story,” may be ironic, but there’s nothing subtle about the message, right from the opening scenes.

The two-hour documentary begins with footage of a family being evicted from their foreclosed home by a half dozen police officers. Then he presents more incriminating evidence: a bankrupt Chicago factory where workers are denied pay, a privately run juvenile prison that paid off judges to give convicts longer sentences, and last year’s $700 billion bailout of the banking system.

Moore, 55, ends with this conclusion: “Capitalism is an evil and you can’t regulate evil. You have to replace it with something that is good for everyone.”"

Ugggghhhh…. GO AWAY.

I didn’t think it was bleeding and happen to look in a mirror about 5 minutes later and there are these streams of blood rolling down the sides of my face.

If you’re getting too dizzy and passing out you need to go to the ER so they can stop it for you.

If they do stick a kotex on your head would you mind sending a picture to GO and I?
