General Patton

General Patton is back with his usual direct solutions for the problems we face.

He was wrong about the surge, but the jury is still out on the remainder.

"Architects of Ruin," an appreciation

I don't call these a "review" because then I'd have to do quotes, give an outline, etc., etc.

What Peter Schweizer writes is a short, 187 pages, summary of just how the Leftes of the world got the Community Reinvestment Act passed under the Second Worst President in history, AKA Carter, and how the expanded it and how they eventually took over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac during the Clinton administration and how the Lefie Boomers decided they should get rich and do good using the tax payer's money.

And how "Too Big To Fail" actually didn't start in 2008, but years and years before in Argentia, Russia, Japan, Thailand, etc., etc. Come to find out the Masters of the Universe weren't masters of anything. The game was as fixed as a card mechanic setting up the mark for the big take down.

And the recurring names in the Clinton and Obama administration will blow you away.

And while it is well written, it is a slow read with some 15 pages of notes and references, probably 300 or so.

It isn't a Right Wing rant on the Internet.

And if you aren't seething with anger after you have read it then there is something wrong.

Buy it here or elsewhere but buy it.

And if you have teenager around, do whatever it takes to get them to read it. That way they will know why their future is mortgaged.

And a hat tip to Mostly Cajun for the pic.

Another environmentalist wacko scheme down the tubes

BRUSSELS, April 21 (Reuters) - Biofuels such as biodiesel from soy beans can create up to four times more climate-warming emissions than standard diesel or petrol, according to an EU document released under freedom of information laws.

And I wish I had said this:

Honestly, when have envirotards ever been correct? Tens of thousands killed by toxic skies over US cities by late 1970s? Nope. New ice age by late 1990s? Nope. Mass starvation by 2000? Nope. Rape of the Amazon rain forest by 2010? Nope. Nuclear Winter? Nope.
If one marches to Al Gore's drum, one deserves all the skepticism that is coming, and more.

In the meantime we have idiot Congress critters on both sides that think we should be spending billions....
