Success is defined as getting what you want.

Happiness is defined as wanting what you get.

The Right has long longed for Hillary's head on a stick. She is haughty, difficult and just plain unlikable. And I certainly don't want her as President.

But if you had to choose between her and Barrick Hussien Obama, who would you choose?

One wants power but knows its limits, what it can, and cannot do. She also knows that the world is an evil place, and though unacceptably weak on national defense has indicated that she would fight.

The other is totally naive, believes that if we just talk we can all get along, stopped wearing an American Flag in his lapel and in general is untested in any significant way.

Hillary would bring huge problems.

Barrick Hussein Obama would bring unmitigated disaster.

Say a little prayer for Hillary boys and girls. Or we may find out that success wasn't what it is cracked up to be.

Can somebody tell me

that if man made Global Warming is real...how come...

University of Oklahoma geophysicist David Deming, a specialist in temperature and heat flow, notes in the Washington Times that "unexpected bitter cold swept the entire Southern Hemisphere in 2007." Johannesburg experienced its first significant snowfall in a quarter-century. Australia had its coldest ever June. New Zealand's vineyards lost much of their 2007 harvest when spring temperatures dropped to record lows.

Given the number of worldwide cold events, it is no surprise that 2007 didn't turn out to be the warmest ever. In fact, 2007's global temperature was essentially the same as that in 2006 - and 2005, and 2004, and every year back to 2001. The record set in 1998 has not been surpassed. For nearly a decade now, there has been no global warming. Even though atmospheric carbon dioxide continues to accumulate - it's up about 4 percent since 1998 - the global mean temperature has remained flat. That raises some obvious questions about the theory that CO2 is the cause of climate change.

Yet so relentlessly has the alarmist scenario been hyped, and so disdainfully have dissenting views been dismissed, that millions of people assume Gore must be right when he insists: "The debate in the scientific community is over."

But it isn't. Just last month, more than 100 scientists signed a strongly worded open letter pointing out that climate change is a well-known natural phenomenon, and that adapting to it is far more sensible than attempting to prevent it. Because slashing carbon dioxide emissions means retarding economic development, they warned, "the current UN approach of CO2 reduction is likely to increase human suffering from future climate change rather than to decrease it."

Climate science isn't a religion, and those who dispute its leading theory are not heretics. Much remains to be learned about how and why climate changes, and there is neither virtue nor wisdom in an emotional rush to counter global warming - especially if what's coming is a global Big Chill.

I would think that you would have not stops and starts and blips and flips, but a slow steady increase. After all, that carbon dioxide doesn't just disappear. It gets absorbed by trees and the oceans. The earth itself acts as a carbon sump. Are they telling us that it is suddenly absorbed and then released??? That doesn't make sense, but then there has been so much about this that doesn't make sense that I think it time we tell Algore that his church his closed and he needs a new gig.

I think he would make a great salesman for Hadacol. At least it delivered the feel good it promised.... 24 proof booze will do that.
