More PC silliness

AP - RIVERDALE, Utah (Feb. 20) -- Wal-Mart Stores Inc. apologized to a Muslim woman who said she was mocked because of her face veil.

"Please don't stick me up," a cashier told the shopper on Feb. 2, according to The Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Wal-Mart apologized Monday in a letter signed by Rolando Rodriquez, a vice president and regional general manager. It was released Tuesday by the council's Nevada chapter.

"I can assure you that the associate in question was disciplined in accordance with our employment policies as a result of the situation," Rodriguez said without disclosing details.

Rodriguez said employees at the Riverdale store would undergo "sensitivity training," specifically in the Islamic faith and Muslim culture.

I have to wonder if Wal-Mart would allow me to shop in a wind breaker and ski mask??

This is just too much. I don’t think it wrong to simply say, “If you don’t like my culture in my country then you should go home.

My impassioned pleading

to Pope Algore has worked. He has released the spirits of global warming and this morning we had a warm 50 degrees at 8 AM. A grateful nation thanks him. My bank account thanks him. The utility company has issued an all points bulletin for his arrest.

But the heretics continue their denial, giving us this to consider.

Back in 1991, before Al Gore first shouted that the Earth was in the balance, the Danish Meteorological Institute released a study using data that went back centuries that showed that global temperatures closely tracked solar cycles.

I mean really? The sun’s out put effects the temperature of the Earth? How gauche and out of style can you be?? But worse was written. Close the door and make sure no children read this:

Solar activity fluctuates in an 11-year cycle. But so far in this cycle, the sun has been disturbingly quiet. The lack of increased activity could signal the beginning of what is known as a Maunder Minimum, an event which occurs every couple of centuries and can last as long as a century.
Such an event occurred in the 17th century. The observation of sunspots showed extraordinarily low levels of magnetism on the sun, with little or no 11-year cycle.
This solar hibernation corresponded with a period of bitter cold that began around 1650 and lasted, with intermittent spikes of warming, until 1715. Frigid winters and cold summers during that period led to massive crop failures, famine and death in Northern Europe.

Repeat after me. Pay no attention to these actual records and known facts. Projections and computer models are always more accurate.

Onward to the politics of the hopeful.

I read somewhere yesterday that Republicans are being urged to cross party lines in the Texas Demo primary and vote for Hussein. The claim is that is, at last, the chance to drive a stake through the Billarypire’s heart and dispatch her for ever… subject that is, to a rerun in 2012..

How anyone with Hillary’s negatives, more than 50% claim to dislike her, could expect to win is beyond me. Even more beyond me is why the Hillary haters want to beat her in a primary by voting for a politician that has become a pop icon that is beloved by the Left and about which the harshest thing that can be said about is that he is vacant of any thought beyond, “Hussein want to be President.” Telling his fans that he knows nothing is an exercise in futility. Remember. All of them believe in man made global warming. Need I say more?

Me? I would rather face an opponent in the GE that has the aforementioned 50 plus percent negatives. But that’s just ole logical me.
