The number of malefactors authorizes not the crime. Thomas Fuller (1608—1661)
How can they get away with such incredible arrogance and deception? Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres of the UN Framework Convention on Climate (UNFCC) said “Let me be clear – there is no magic bullet, no one climate agreement that will solve everything right now,” “To expect that is naive. However, I am certain the world can do this step by step, but only if we keep on walking firmly in the right direction, including at Cancun.” She is talking about stopping or controlling climate change. Clearly Ms. Figueres knows nothing about climate science or doesn’t want to know.
Why Airline Security Doesn’t Work
By Daniel Greenfield Full Story
Three men go on a camping trip. On the way there they’re told by a park ranger to be careful because their campsite is located near some dangerous animals. What dangerous animals? The park ranger won’t say, because that would be profiling. “Just keep in mind”, he tells them, “that people who camped there in the past never made it back alive.”
As the sun goes down, they pick up their hunting rifles and stand watch for dangerous animals. But they don’t know what dangerous animals, they’re watching out for. And they don’t want to profile. So they keep watch for crickets as much as for bears, and for deer as much as for mountain lions. A rabbit, an owl or a bullfrog all equally frighten them out of their wits. They open fire on mosquitoes and stand watch against monstrous raccoons. By the end of the night, they can hardly see anything or react to danger. That morning, a pair of mountain lions stroll lazily into their camp and find them snoring away.

And so it is with society, those on the leading edge of thought, power and finance have a far better view of the full horizon. As a lead dog with plenty of thought, but no power or finance, it is disturbing for me to see where the ‘musher’ is leading us.
Engineers are trained to study systems and then optimize them for safety and efficiency. Engineering is applied science, so all recommendations should be scientifically correct. With a career including structural, mechanical, electrical, process, automotive and transportation, my background provided unique insights into a range of science issues.

By Judi McLeod Full Story
It’s coming up to that special time of year so get ready, folks, for Barack’s and Michelle’s Christmas Circus Supreme.
Last year it was the Christmas Eve push for Socialized Medicine on the political front and Mao and transvestite White House Christmas tree ornaments on the cultural front.
