Where Does the Carbon Dioxide Really Come From?

Professor Ian Plimer could not have said it better!
If you've read his book you will agree, this is a good summary.

PLIMER: "Okay, here's the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland. Its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet - all of you.

Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress - it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.

I's very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids "The Green Revolution" science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad, nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50-cent light bulbs with $10.00 light bulbs..... well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.

The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere in just four days - yes, FOUR DAYS - by that volcano in Iceland has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time - EVERY DAY.

I don't really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.

Yes, folks, Mt Pinatubo was active for over One year - think about it.

Of course, I shouldn't spoil this 'touchy-feely tree-hugging' moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.

And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bushfire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.

Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus 'human-caused' climate-change scenario.

Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention 'Global Warming' anymore, but just 'Climate Change' - you know why?

It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming bull artists got caught with their pants down.

And, just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme - that whopping new tax - imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer.

It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure.

But, hey, relax......give the world a hug and have a nice day!"

We don't need no stinkin brakes!

What I'm referring to is a very old joke about Hispanic drivers in the '50's and '60's. There wasn't very many "Illegals" back in the day and what few Hispanics there were almost always drove an old clunker that was constantly breaking down. Come to think of it I drove the same kind of car, only with brakes that I was constantly working on. After all, American cars back then truly were "Detroit junk".

In the early "60's along came Volkswagen and Volvo. I couldn't afford a new anything back then, hell my salary in the Air Force was some where around $100 per month so I continued to drive old clunkers. In 1961 right before I joined the USAF I worked for a steel fabrication company in OKC, somehow I managed to purchase a 1958 Ford Fairlane with a retractable hard top. Man I thought I was shittin in tall cotton. The first night I drove it, I overloaded it with idiots just like me and the transmission broke. My Dad stood up for me, took it back to the dealership and threatened to whip the salesman's ass if they didn't fix it. They did, and that's how things got handled back in the day. If things got "broke" we fixed them.

OK let's fast forward 50 years, we now have over 11,000,000 illegal aliens. They're telling us we need new laws to fix a broken immigration system. Can somebody tell me what is wrong with laws that we have on the books now? If I'm not mistaken it's still against the law to come into our country without permission and it's still against the law to hire an illegal alien. So why don't we enforce those 2 laws.

If we truly close the borders to all but legal traffic then we have no more illegals coming in. One problem solved. Now we need to arrest and sentence to jail every SOB that hires an Illegal without a Green Card, this will send a flood of Illegals back across our border. Two problems solved. If they don't go back home they are gonna need government help or subsistence cause they have no income. Bingo, you got'em, send them back across the border.

If I'm not mistaken We did not invite them over to start with, OR DID WE!

At least that's how I see it,

About The Bible

I received this article in an email from a close friend named John Kolar. I can't vouch for the facts involved, but I can sure as heck vouch for John Kolar.

About The Bible

During a question and answer session at a recent speaking engagement, a university student asked, "Why do you believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God?"

Now this is a very interesting question, and probably one of the most important questions any Christian could ask themselves.  What is so special, so unique about the Bible that Christians believe it is literally the inspired word of God?

In answering this student's question, the student was asked to consider the following facts about the Bible.  First, the Bible is not just one single book.  This is a more common misconception than many people realize, especially with people who do not come from a Judeo-Christian background.  Rather than being a single book, the Bible is actually a collection of 66 books, which is called the canon of scriptures.  These 66 books contain a variety of genres:  history, poetry, prophecy, wisdom, literature, letters, and apocalyptic, just to name a few.

Second, these 66 books were written by 40 different authors.  These authors came from a variety of backgrounds: shepherds, fishermen,doctors, kings, prophets, and others.  And most of these authors never knew one another personally.

Third, these 66 books were written over a period of 1,500 years.  Yet again, this is another reminder that many of these authors never knew or collaborated with one another in writing these books.

Fourth, the 66 books of the Bible were written in 3 different languages. In the Bible we have books that were written in the ancient languages of Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic; a reflection of the historical and cultural circumstances in which each of these books were written.

And finally, these 66 books were written on 3 different continents: Africa , Asia, and Europe .  Once again, this is a testament to the varied historical  and cultural circumstances of God's people.

Think about the above realities: 66 books, written by 40 different authors, over 1,500 years, in 3 different languages, on 3 different continents.  What's more, this collection of books shares a common story line - the creation, fall, and redemption of God's people; a common theme - God's universal love for all of humanity; and a common message - salvation is available to all who repent of their sins and commit to following God with all of their heart, soul, mind and strength.

In addition to sharing these commonalities, these 66 books contain no historical errors or contradictions. God's word truly is an amazing collection of writings!

After the above facts were shared with this student, he was offered the following challenge.  "If you do not believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God, if you do not believe that the Bible is of a supernatural origin, then you are challenged to a test, you're challenged to go to any library in the world, you can choose any library you like, and find 66 books which match the characteristics of the 66 books in the Bible.  You must choose 66 books, written by 40 different authors, over 1,500 years, in 3 different languages, written on 3 different continents. However, they must share a common story line, a common theme, and a common message, with no historical errors or contradictions."  I went on to say, "If you can produce such a collection of books, then it will be admitted that the Bible is not the inspired word of  God."

The student's reply was almost instantaneous, he emphatically stated, "But that's impossible!"

It truly is impossible, for any collection of human writings.  However, the Bible passes this test.  The Bible contains 66 books, written by 40 different authors, over 1,500 years, in 3 different languages, on 3 different continents, with no historical errors or contradictions.  The entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, bears the mark of Divine inspiration.

The next time you encounter someone who asks you why you believe the Bible is the inspired word of God, try sharing this challenge with them. Better yet, don't wait until you're asked, just go ahead and share this challenge with a friend today.  You don't even have to mention the Bible up front, just ask them if they think it would be realistic to assemble such a collection of books.  After they say, "But that's impossible!" you've got a ready-made opportunity for sharing the truth!

In God We Trust.

At least that's how I see it,

"Greeny Weenie" Hidden Enemy

OK Guys, I'm seeing a ground swell of hatred for Monsanto and others who are creating GMO products.

Once again I start by saying I have a very limited knowledge of the hazards of GMO production, that being said I still firmly believe we should have ALL GMO products identified on the label. Can't be that difficult!

Somebody tell me what the law is regarding GMO labeling. Is Mansanto breaking any laws? Sure they are an "EVIL" (not my words) corporation and some think they should be put out of business, but I'm here to tell  that you are going about it in the wrong way. Your sickly little "piss ant" demonstration won't hack it. You need to go after the "Hidden Enemy". The FDA not Monsanto make the laws, albeit their money probably has a lot to do with it. Monsanto still can't pass one law.

The true culprit is the FDA, why haven't they changed the label requirements. I ask you, why haven't all of you "Greeny Weenies" gone after the FDA your hidden enemy? That's kind of a rhetorical question since I know the answer, the FDA is part of the Obama Administration. Do you guys have no shame? Why would you ignore the FDA, the true culprit?

This really isn't a Liberal versus Conservative thing, but you don't understand that. Once again, Obama and his Socialistic cohorts are getting a pass while you go after the wrong enemy.

At least that's how I see it,

This one is one of those "outta the mouths of babes" or maybe "kids say the darnedest things" not sure which, but about 14 years ago my sweet little Allison graduated from Pre-K. The ceremony was held at a local church in the Katy area.

To set the stage, Allison spent a tremendous amount of time with Sharron and I. Most of that time was spent on my lap. I guess you could say she was definitely the apple of her PePa's eye and I'd like to think she felt the same about me. On more than one occasion I would joke around and tell her "I'm gonna take my belt off and whip your butt". She always knew I was kidding around because she would get that little wrinkled smile and start laughing.

Well on the night in question Sharron and I got to the church with time to spare. We got ourselves positioned with decent seats kind of close to the front near the stage. When all the kiddos came in they marched them down the aisle towards the stage. For some reason as she was headed up the stairs Alli Pooh looked at me and noticed I was wearing slacks with a belt and in a large voice she asked "Pepa are you gonna take that belt off and whip my butt"?

At the time I was mortified and probably beet red with embarrassment, but now looking back, I would not trade it for the world. Tomorrow morning at 10:00 am we will once again be in a church for another Pre-K graduation for Alli Pooh's younger brother Austin. My only question is will this "A" kid do what the other "A" kid did 14 years ago.

I am blessed too have both of them in my life and hope to see both of them graduate from college. If they don't, I'm gonna take my belt off and.........

At leased that's how I see it,

Admiration of Christine

As of late I have developed a sense of admiration for those individuals who have the guts to stand up for what they believe in, mainly my daughter Christine. Although I sometimes think she may be slightly misguided in her beliefs, at least she believes in her convictions.

Christine has researched the GMO issue and she feels strongly enough about it that she plans on participating in a protest in Houston. I haven't done one bit of research and I haven't spoken with Christine enough to know whether her info is anecdotal or if she has actual evidence supporting her position on this subject.

I personally haven't seen enough info to form a strong opinion one way or another. As I understand it, there are a few Countries that have banned GMO products. I also understand that GMO practices have enabled the USA farmers to basically feed the world. I personally am gonna have to see more proof before I get on the band wagon for banning GMO products.

All of that being said, Why are the big food processors afraid to at least put it on the label? Are they trying to hedge their bets in case GMO products are found to be harmful? If we decide to consume GMO products it should be by CHOICE. I would like to know what I am eating. If you can't find out on the label then how can you make a choice. What's wrong with some "truth in labeling".

So you see, Christine by standing up for her convictions has convinced me to take a stance. She is a strong person who honestly has our best interests at heart and I admire her for that.

At least that's the way I see it.

Is it Bald-Faced or Bold-Faced?

I've never been sure which is the correct term. As it turns out, either one is acceptable as far as description goes. I personally have decided not to accept the act under any circumstance. 

First we need to define a Bald-Faced Liar, keep in mind that I found these definitions online which I guess could have been posted up by a liar, but they sound reasonable to me.

Pathological liar refers to a liar that is compulsive or impulsive, lies on a regular basis and is unable to control their lying despite of foreseeing inevitable negative consequences or ultimate disclosure of the lie.

Compulsive liar is defined as someone who lies out of habit.  Lying is their normal and reflexive way of responding to questions.  Compulsive liars bend the truth about everything, large and small.  Compulsive lying is usually thought to develop in early childhood, due to being placed in an environment where lying was necessary. 

In my old age I have decided that my life really is way too short to accept any liars of any kind. Every time I have forgiven someone for lying to me they always do it again.

 I have a tremendous admiration for people that have the conviction to extricate themselves from those who have "crossed" them. My plan is to surround myself with those that I admire. They say you can see where you'll be in 5 years "by the company you're keeping now".

So I guess you can say that if you have lied to me, stole from me or in anyway deceived me, then consider yourself un-friended. This post is primarily about one person who has crossed the line in recent days, but it also includes every last person that works in Washington, D.C. FYI, I have cut all of those Assholes out of my life.

If You allow this activity to happen or condone this Lying then you are no better than they are!

At least that's how I see it,
