First October snow in London since 1922

Is it possible that God is trying to send us a message?

You know, it just can't get any better than this when the Brit's government is
debating on how to screw their economy even further up we have this:

Snow fell as the House of Commons debated Global Warming yesterday - the first October fall in the metropolis since 1922. The Mother of Parliaments was discussing the Mother of All Bills for the last time, in a marathon six hour session.

The US Senate has Senator James Inhofe, but in the Commons, there wasn't an out-and-out sceptic to be found. It was 90 minutes before anyone broke the liturgy of virtue. When Peter Lilley, in amazement, asked why there hadn't been a cost/benefit analysis made of such a major change in policy, he was told to shut up by the Deputy Speaker.

This is known as the Idiot Leader Syndrome.

Recently the American media has begun to notice the odd incongruity of saturation media coverage here which insists that global warming is both man-made and urgent, and a British public which increasingly doubts either to be true. 60 per cent of the British population now doubt the influence of humans on climate change, and more people than not think Global Warming won't be as bad "as people say".

This is known as the People Are Smart Syndrome.

Both figures are higher than a year ago - and the poll was taken before the non-summer of 2008, and the (latest) credit crisis.

In Seattle those are known as Green Tomato Summers. And I think everyone noticed the economy going belly up.... Except the House of Commons.

Arugula and Marxism. The Obama story

- On a sunlit Friday afternoon in July, Barack Obama stopped by Beverly Van Fossen's farm in Adel, Iowa, to speak about "rural issues." It was standard Hawkeye State stumping—until the senator took a stab at sympathizing with farmers whose crop prices have stagnated. "Anybody gone into Whole Foods lately and see what they charge for arugula?" he asked.

Unfortunately, Adel isn't exactly arugula country. "Someone near me whispered, 'What's arugula?' " says Van Fossen, 74. " 'You can't find that in Iowa'." Same goes for Whole Foods. The closest locations, reported The New York Times that evening, are in Omaha, Neb.; Kansas City, Kans., and Minneapolis. Whoops. Right-wing bloggers pounced. The dishy Wonkette called Obama a "super rich Ivy League elitist." Peter Feld, a former Michael Dukakis staffer, wrote on Powers-Point.com that a similar slip by his ex-boss—the suggestion that Iowans grow "Belgian endive"—surfaced repeatedly in 1988 attack ads. C'est la vie politique.

The above was written about 15 months ago during the primaries.

But it hasn't gone away. From arugula to bitter red necks clinging to their guns and religion to his laughing at Joe the Plunber while pushing his Marxist agenda we have come to know him.

Michelle and Lobster - Update

Or.... Do as I say, not as I do.....

Or... You can take the girl out of Chicago but you can't take Chicago out of the girl..

Or... I think a nice Chardonnay... say a Marquis de Laguiche Joseph Drouhin Montrachet 2004... Only $950 US. Would go well, don't you?

Hat tip to Jimmy M!

UPDATE - weeder gander advises that the Lady Michelle was not at the Waldorf.. OK.

In the interest of fairness I will take this down when all the posts are taken down that accused Palin from claiming her daughter's baby as her own....that she banned books...that she called Hussein "Sambo".....that her religion is like witchcraft... and that Cindy McCain's Repub Convention out cost thousands... I could name more but you get the idea...

In the meantime just ignore the receipt.... But not what she said because that is not disputed... and it matches Hussein's Marxist philosophy..

The question is, who is the "somone" going to be who will have to give up something.

And I know damn well for sure that it won't be Lady Michelle or The Messiah Hussein.
