Thoughts On A Sunday

I want someone who still believes AGW is real to explain to me how global warming caused it to snow here in New Hampshire last night. That's right, SNOW!

BeezleBub informed me that while on his way home from Horse Girl's last night it started to snow. Snow on May 24th, the latest I've ever seen it here. It also snowed in Vermont.

The only explanation is global Hotcoldwetdry.

Yeah. Right.


Today was the WP Dad's 80th birthday and the WP clan gathered at my dear brother's abode to celebrate. It was a low key affair as Dad has never been one for showy celebrations.


The push for more draconian gun controls flies in the face of reality, particularly in light of this incident in Oregon where a woman called 911 because her ex-boyfriend was trying to break into her place. The dispatcher told her there were no police to send because of budget cuts.

If this woman had had a gun there would have been no need for police to save her from being beaten and raped by her ex, only for follow up by detectives and removal of his body by the coroner.

Unfortunately some of our more deluded and stupid fellows upon this earth live just long enough to reproduce...and then let their children die of malnutrition because of their stupidity.


Apparently there's been some verbal sparring between Tesla Motors and Chrysler in regards to paying off federal loans.


If we need yet another indication that our educational system is broken then we need look no further that this: Schools will require doctor's notes to allow kids to use sunscreen.

Just when I thought they couldn't get any stupider.


The negative effects of the War on Men is also being felt across the pond in the UK. Much of the anti-male legislation and societal pressure are having a negative effect and men are 'dropping out' in increasing numbers as marriage and/or having kids is net negative for them.

“Welcome to the party, pal.”


Walter Russell Mead proves to us that college isn't for everyone, nor should it be.

I had the opportunity to discuss this particular topic with one of the WP nieces today at the family gathering. She was truly amazed to see so many fellow students pursuing courses of study that won't help them get jobs once they graduate. She agrees that majors that end in the word “studies” are the worst offenders. (She's a chemical engineering student.)


And that's the news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where winter weather made a brief return, it's been too cold to enjoy the usual outdoor activities, and the summerfolk have been staying away in droves.
