our increasing reliance on the Internet and the ease of access to the vast resource available online, is affecting our thought processes for problem solving, recall and learning.
In a new article published in the journal Memory, researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz and University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign have found that 'cognitive offloading', or the tendency to rely on things like the Internet as an aide-mémoire, increases after each use.Who would have believed, thirty years ago, that one day you would carry in your pocket a device through which you could access all human knowledge, and instead, you would use it to store pictures of cats and get into arguments with people you don’t know?
We might think that memory is something that happens in the head, but increasingly it is becoming something that happens with the help of agents outside the head. Benjamin Storm, Sean Stone & Aaron Benjamin conducted experiments to determine our likelihood to reach for a computer or smartphone to answer questions. Participants were first divided into two groups to answer some challenging trivia questions – one group used just their memory, the other used Google. Participants were then given the option of answering subsequent easier questions by the method of their choice.
The results revealed that participants who previously used the Internet to gain information were significantly more likely to revert to Google for subsequent questions than those who relied on memory. Participants also spent less time consulting their own memory before reaching for the Internet; they were not only more likely to do it again, they were likely to do it much more quickly. Remarkably 30% of participants who previously consulted the Internet failed to even attempt to answer a single simple question from memory.
Lead author Dr Benjamin Storm commented, "Memory is changing. Our research shows that as we use the Internet to support and extend our memory we become more reliant on it. Whereas before we might have tried to recall something on our own, now we don't bother. As more information becomes available via smartphones and other devices, we become progressively more reliant on it in our daily lives."I'm more efficient than that. I use the internet to get into arguments with cats I don’t know.
This research suggests that using a certain method for fact finding has a marked influence on the probability of future repeat behaviour.
Time will tell if this pattern will have any further reaching impacts on human memory than has our reliance on other information sources. Certainly the Internet is more comprehensive, dependable and on the whole faster than the imperfections of human memory, borne out by the more accurate answers from participants in the internet condition during this research.
With a world of information a Google search away on a smartphone, the need to remember trivial facts, figures, and numbers is inevitably becoming less necessary to function in everyday life.

A Day In The Life
Up at 7 on Friday morning, I made French-Roast, Turkish-Grind Coffee, with my trusty Chemex® Drip Coffeemaker System, had plenty of Clementines for fresh-squeezed Sweet Clementine Juice, and Eggs Benedict Florentine w/ Bacon & Hash Browns. Hell, I was ready to go back to sleep for a couple of hours, but I had a 1pm meeting. After checking the weather and news, I did paperwork while listening to the live stream of Chris Plante Show (9-12 ET) on WMAL/DC, and left at 12:30pm.
I met my 2 business investment friends at Checkers Bistro in Lancaster, and with their 2 laptops full of a collection of 14 ultra-rare, old, very expensive – original and restored – Henderson Motorcycles, we decided to make the 2hr drive west to visit it. (No details.) We have collections of pre-war, original condition Harleys, and an ultra-rare Pope motorcycle collection to look at, next week. I was back home by 6:30, blown away by the quality and care of the machinery – the fact that they still even exist – but decided to have a meeting with them and my attorney, early next week to go over the new/changing laws, statutes and regulations pertaining to any business we'd do. They're only that way once. When restored, they're less valuable than original condition. Believe it or don't.
For the rest of the evening, I watched Triple D episodes, until 12:30am; then lights out.
I slept-in until 9:30 on Saturday morning, and I probably could have slept another few hours; best night's sleep in days/weeks/months. Coffee, OJ and a Poached Egg, Proscuitto & Gruyère on a Croissant, while I checked the news and weather sites. Temps were already up into the low-90s, so I listened to a couple of the week's missed Chris Plante Show Podcasts 8/15-19, while doing paperwork. By 3pm, the most amazing and astronomically-expensive collections of classics, muscle cars and super cars at the 4hr Mecum Auto Auction: Monterey, CA was on CATV's NBCSN, and I watched until conclusion. Ford GT40s and a McLaren P3 selling for $4-5 MILLION! For the rest of the evening, I alternated between Triple D episodes and a American Pickers Season 12 Marathon, until 12-midnight, and called it quits.
Awake at 7:30am on Sunday, I had OJ, made coffee and a Poached Eggs & Avocado Croissant Sandwich, checked the news and cell messages. It was laundry day, so I stripped the bed, and started the loads while listening to a couple more of the week's missed Chris Plante Show Podcasts 8/15-19. My left knee was hurting, so I hobbled around trying to work out the 'kink', or whatever it was. For lunch, I made a Grilled Ham & Cheese w/ Potato Chips, and checked the CATV schedule for some auto racing. The IndyCar ABC Supply 500 at Pocono, PA was rain-delayed until Monday at 3pm, but the 3hr NASCAR Bass Pro Shops NRA 500 at Bristol was on and running, also after a long rain delay.
Over the next few days, I decided to make Lobster & Pappardelle Pasta, w/ Wild Mushrooms, Peas, Roasted Peppers and Alfredo Sauce, so I ordered Lobster Claw and Knuckle Meat, Cooked (2-lbs) from Giovanni's Fish Market, thru Amazon, as well as Fresh Dungeness Crab Meat (2-lbs) from the same source, for pairing with Tagliatelle Pasta. There'll be plenty for Dad and Becky, and Stacy and Dave. I have close to 150 boxes of a variety of imported egg pastas from Italy, thru igourmet and CyberCucina.
By 6, the news was on, and afterward, I watched NatGeo's series Underworld, Inc: Moonshine Mayhem, other episodes until 12-midnight, and closed down for the night.
Up at 8am on Monday, I had OJ and coffee, and while scanning news sites, I hit a wall at these articles: the US Army lost TRILLIONS of dollars and cooked their books, and the USA is giving away control of the Net. TRILLIONS lost? The shithole Third World running the Net America discovered and built? Already I have a helluva headache. I checked email, which was working, and my Sister had sent a food shopping list, which I needed to get done this morning for her. I left at 10am for Weis Market. That done and groceries delivered to her by 12:30pm, I headed home.
After a quick Egg & Olive Salad Sandwich, I left at 1:30 for a 1:50 eye dr's check-up, and now there's only one small floater remaining, in my right eye. I had a few stops to make on the way home, and listened to the morning's missed Chris Plante Show 8/22/16 until 5:30, watched a full replay of the rescheduled rain-delay IndyCar ABC Supply 500 at Pocono, PA, and some assorted Discovery Channel episodes of Moonshiners Season 5 and Fat & Furious: Rolling Thunder Season 3 until 11:30. Lights out.
The Trump Campaign's robo-calls are coming-in, fast and furious. One starts off, "Hi, I'm Donald Trump and...", and another one, "Hello, I want to offer Americans a new and better future...". And so are the fund raising calls. Usually around 6pm, but now even into the evening, around 8-9pm, and all thru the weekends, day and evening. Get ready for a LOT more of it as we get to November 8th.
Tuesday morning's temp at 8am, was actually in the mid-50s, so I opened the condo's windows and back door to get some fresh air thru. The OJ and coffee were great. I made Eggs, Spam & Hash Browns, and one of the FedEx shipments arrived at 11am: fresh-picked crab and lobster meat, from Giovanni's Fish Market. WOW! I laid out the steps for the crab, pasta and special ingredients, first. I prepped the kitchen with all the necessary cookware. I still have a few things to get tomorrow, at Saubel's Market, in Stewartstown. And then I begin cooking and assembling for Dad, Becky, Stacey & Dave, and myself. I made a small test batch for lunch, and it was awesome.
With a high of only 80°F, low humidity and a nice breeze, the condo was pleasant and it aired-out until 9pm, when I closed-up and briefly ran the AC, to remove any humidity. My knee was acting-up again, so while I had an icepak on it, I watched more episodes of Fat & Furious: Rolling Thunder Seasons 2 & 3, until 11:30pm, and called it a day.
Up at 7:30 on Wednesday morning, I had juice, made coffee and while scanning the weather and news, found the story-of-the-decade, by of all sources, the usually corrupt, lib-dem spokes-mouth, the AP: Many donors to Clinton Foundation met with her at State. Jeeeeeeeeez, this makes the Iran-Contra Scandal look like child's' play. Rampant felony abuse and criminality, from the media sewers to the White House sewers. But the corrupt, Clinton-DNC-controlled NYSlimes was having none of it. I'm now convinced more than ever, that Trump will never get to the White House; he'll be assassinated by the left before they allow him near it.
I left at 9:45 for the Old 20ac GC&N Complex, to check on why Choice Security was getting a "no power" signal, and found that all power to the entire 20ac complex was out. I called Met-Ed and they said they'd get a crew over by 3pm. I also had multiple Rxs to p/u at the Rite Aid in Stewartstown, and then finally got home, by 1pm. After a quick Ham Salad Sandwich & Chips for lunch, I made the crab, roasted peppers, peas, wild mushrooms and pasta concoction, and multi-containerized it. There was a growing pile of mail to go thru, and I started it, while watching episodes of American Pickers Season 11 Marathon, until Part 2 of the most amazing and astronomically-expensive rarefied collections of classics, muscle cars, super cars and motorcycles at the Mecum Auto Auction: Monterey, CA was on CATV's NBCSN, and I watched until conclusion. Lights out at 11:30.
After a very restless night of weird dreams and night sweats, I got up at 6:30, had OJ, made coffee and scanned the news. These linked articles gave me an early headache: "C*cks Not Glocks: Univ. of Texas Austin Students Protest Gun Law with Open Dildo Carry", SUNY State University Now Offers 'Stop White People' Training and "Maryland School District: Don't Tell Parents About Transgender Students Sharing Sleeping Arrangements". Blech. I took some aspirin, bundled-up the containers of crab & pasta for Dad and Becky, and left at 9:30.
After stopping at Becky's and visiting Dad, I ran a few errands, and met with one of my investment friends, to drive east to Lancaster to look at some old Indian motorcycles. A 1946 Indian Chief (restored) $33,000, a 1951 Indian Chief (restored) $47,000 and a 1941 Indian Scout (restored) $21,900, and a 1922 Indian Standard PowerPlus (restored) $28,500 and a 1944 Indian Chief Military (unrestored) $34,000. (Pics provided by collector's website.) Just damn. There's just no room on any of them for resale profit, so reluctantly we passed on any offers. Too bad, but it is what it is. We'll keep looking.
Back home by 6, I watched the news, and heard a very unusual Civil Defense warning on TV, radio and the computer: ***CIVIL EMERGENCY MESSAGE*** for a massive natgas leak west of York in New Oxford, in adjacent Adams County. I know the area very well and have friends and former customers in the historic area. Yikes. I tried calling as many as I could, but all cell and Net service was down for that area, so email didn't work, either.
Part 3 of the most amazing and astronomically-expensive rarefied collections of classics, muscle cars, super cars and motorcycles at the Mecum Auto Auction: Monterey, CA was on CATV's NBCSN, and I watched until 11:30, and called it quits for the day.
Tomorrow/ Friday starts a new week here in the "Journal", and I have a pile of bills for both the Condo and GdnCtr to get written and mailed on Sat/Sun, and get mailed by Monday. Dad and I are driving down to the Old 20ac GC&N Complex, to check the restoration of power, and reset the Choice Security control panel. If I can't get it done, I'll have to get Neal, my old friend and their #1 Service Tech out to have a look. Otherwise, no dr app'ts, and I need to get to S&D Auto, to get a new driver's seat located and installed, before Winter gets here. And it's just around the corner.
The very definition of the word conundrum is "something that is puzzling or confusing". Here are six conundrums today, in the US:
1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.
2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.
3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.
4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.
5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.
Think about it. That pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st century. Kind of makes you wonder who is doing the math.
These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:
1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works. And here's another one worth considering...
2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't. Think about it. And last but not least...
3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to all illegal aliens?
Am I the only one missing something?
Enemies Of The State: YOU & ME!
If you don't think that the US Government is intentionally targeting, investigating and prosecuting-persecuting Conservative Americans, you're living in a dream world of warm sponge baths and fresh diapers. America is under attack from The Enemy Within©.
This intentional use of Federal Agencies – IRS, DoINJ, EPA, BLM, Dept Ag, Dept Int, OSHA etc – by The White House, demokkkRAT-nazi party, criminal unions and other corrupt, criminal, corrupt NGO entities, should make the hair on your neck stand-up.
Liberals have been filling government agencies, at all levels, with self-interested, job perpetuation, Marxist-socialist-leftist experts for many decades. Conservatives are a threat to them, their progressive commie agenda and way of life. If we truly had a government based on a Constitution and implemented by elected representatives, this kind of stuff wouldn't happen. But we don't, and it does.
Stupid, ignorant, racist, ghetto-rat, thug filth/trash, like US Rep Elijah Cummings (SCUM-MD) who is so corrupt, criminal and hate-filled toward America, Conservative Americans of all stripes, and the Tea Party, that he should be imprisoned for the rest of his lying, pathetic, miserable life, for treason. And US Sen Joe McCarthy, was more of an American than you'll ever be, racist asshole!
One of the Articles of Impeachment drawn up against Richard Nixon in July of 1974, was merely "threatening" to use the Internal Revenue Service to selectively audit political opponents. 0bummer-boy has now fully-weaponized the IRS against all of his political opponents, ordering multiple covert campaigns of intimidation, threats, and persecution of Tea Party and Conservative organizations, and those daring to criticize 0bummer-boy's Marxist, racist, socialist agenda.
Amazingly, Fox News did a series of special reports on the corrupt, criminal US Govt's use of agencies to harass, threaten, confiscate property without cause, audit, shut-down without cause, fine and threaten with prison and to harm and/or kill American businesses and citizens. Get some popcorn and watch these six YT videos of Fox News' Reports:
Make no mistake about it: The IRS Is A Criminal Organization. Here's the full movie, "CROSSHAIRS: The Internal Revenue Scandal" (54:59).
The corrupt, criminal FedGov is continuing to seize our rightfully-owned lands.
And, a two-decades-old battle between a Nevada rancher and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has resulted in officials armed with machine guns surrounding the ranch and forcibly removing the owner's cattle. This is NOT going to end well, as the Waco slaughter and Ruby Ridge murders didn't.
You Own It, demokkkRATs!
Congratulations to the asswipe demokkkRATs, irrelevant "Free Shit!" minorities and stupid young people on the Truly-Shitty Economy you've created and inherited. You now own it 100%, and you can't blame Bush, anymore. Bathhouse Barry ∅bummer did it all by himself. You voted for it, dumbassed idiots.

More toleration of extreme, fanatical and subhuman islamo-nazi fascist filth, you own it.
Terrorist attacks called "workplace violence incidents", you own it.
Your "revenge" instead of love of country, you own it.
President George W Bush is out of it now, and there is not another good man for you to villify and lie about.
Shit-for-brains, ∅bummer-asshole is a liar, traitor, racist, muslim, coward, bathhouse fag and doper, can't take responsibility for the damage he's inflicted upon America. It's 100% his fault. Prove me wrong, anyone!
In a way, I am relieved that another good man will not be blamed when it becomes impossible to clean-up this mess that YOU voted for. Yes, moronic ∅bummer-asshole idiots: YOU!
Your TSHTF Survival
Are you truly ready for when, not if, TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). And a lot of my "Journal" Readers have emailed and called me to discuss what preparations they should take for that "coming awful event". Believe me, "it" IS coming. Based upon what's happening around the world and here in the US, I have a terrible, terrible *gut feeling* that TSWHTF (The Shit Will Hit The Fan), sometime in 2014. Don't ask why; I just do.
First, Israel is preparing for war, after being attacked for years on many fronts, and not fighting back as she should have. This war will truly have "Biblical implications" around the world. The Middle East is rapidly-collapsing under the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic riots (muslim Brotherhood) and rule ("arab Spring"), with world crude oil prices projected to hit $200+/bbl, or even higher into the $300-$400 range,
Just Google "survival" and see what comes-up. Damned-near everything you ever wanted to know how to prepare for this for-sure-coming "hellish holocaust", some of it in easy-to-download *.PDF format. Tens-of-thousands of websites are devoted to the topic of "survival". Do the same with "You Tube", and watch the thousands of videos. This is *NOT The Phony Y2K Crappola*; this is for real. I said numerous times that Y2K was a waste of time and money to prepare for, and that came true. I'm reading that "survival stores" are reporting a huge upswing in sales and preparations, and for good reason.
I'm also one of the very, very few who "predicted a 9-11 type event", 2 years and 8 months before it happened. Read down that "Journal" entry to the "Scary Stuff" section, and it was done by the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic shit/filth/trash, NOT the US Gov't as some morons and idiots (Alex Jones & Co), have and still It's interesting you mention when an old paradigm dies and a new one takes its place. There are people who are still connected to the old one and can't conceive of life without that old paradigm. I think you saw that in the Great Depression. A lot of people never recovered from it because once that hit it was the end of their lives. claim. Need I say more about those certifiable and murderous, subhuman muslim/islamist wackos who are determined to kill all of us Proud Infidels?
Am I an "conspiracy alarmist" or one of those "crazed survivalists", sequestered in a Montana, Idaho, Utah or Wyoming compound or bunker? Not hardly; I'm simply in mid-State Pennsylvania, an Eagle Scout, Class of 1963, Order Of The Arrow/ Vigil Honor, and our BSA Motto was then, and still is now, "Be Prepared". Need I say any more?
Forget all of the "buy gold and silver" bullshit commercials; buy "brass and lead" for your guns. They're a far, far superior investment, IMO. Ammo is truly a "fungible" item; gold & silver aren't at all. They may be "intrinsic", but they're utterly-useless in a collapsing/collapsed society or world. Do the requisite research, as I've done. 'Nuff said on that subject.
BTW, how are you stocked-up for incandescent light bulbs? Within 4 weeks, manufacturing and using 100w incandescent will become "a crime", thanks to stupid-assed, liberal moron chimp, shit-for-brains, George W Bush & Co, in 2007. You'll be forced, under penalty-of-law, to use the very expensive,
This government's ***CRIMINALLY NUTS***, in trying to regulate our use of anything and everything! It's fascism, socialism, Leninism and communism, dammit, and it won't stand! Where is that in The US Constitution? The US Government isn't empowered to force us to do or buy anything, and has overstepped its legal authority in The ENUMERATED Commerce Clause. The Commerce Clause is quite specifically an enumerated power listed in the United States Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3). The Contemporary Commerce Clause debate, When "decided by the SCOTUS in the Summer of 2012", will cause CWIII, if upheld. Stockpile NOW, because TSHTF before/during/after the November General Election!
Gold is NOT the way to go; lead and brass (aka ammo) ARE. Mark my words!
TSHTF this or next year, and members of the corrupt, criminal US Congress are helping racist, commie, lowlife scumbag Barry "Fuck America!" Obama (SAMBO-IL), by either collaborating with him or cowering before him, on his You are going to see, in metro areas, the absolute worst in humanity, as the people that are most dependent upon a collectivist system, whether they're these Occupy Well Street people, or people who are loaded up with debt, they are totally unprepared for an economic reality where their paradigm does not function. As a result they're going to go through the absolute most disgusting inhumanity that I think any American has ever seen as they go through this anger phase – and it's going to result in riots, and starvation and bloodshed. It has to happen. You don't have people's life savings disappear and people become desperate, and not have that happen. coming "Race War" plan.
We are *at war with Iran*; no doubt about it. Get used to it. And shit-for-brains, racist, commie, lowlife scumbag Barry "F•ck America!" Obama (TRAITOR-IL) has politely "asked" for our formerly Top Secret RQ-170 Sentinel Drone "to be returned". What a dumbf•ck Obama is! He should be charged, tried and imprisoned for *treason*, IMO.
I've been saying, for the past 2-3 years, that no one should buy any gold or silver; it's worthless crap if TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). Instead, buy guns and ammo; they're a far, far better investment, IMO. Any questions?
Uh-oh, it's beginning to happen in Europe. Better get ready for it to come over here, soon, as The Fed f•cks America, once again. Time to abolish The Fed and its corrupt, criminal influence on America's economy!

Obama: "Entrepreneurs Don't Build Businesses"
"Last week, President Barack Obama delivered some telling remarks to a fire station full of people in Roanoke, Virginia. I'll save you the trouble of reading the (long and uninspired) speech and provide you with the most interesting part:
"If you've got a business – you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." – President Barack Obama, July 13th, 2012.
It would be easy to respond with something along the lines of, "Somebody else made that happen? Who? Who magically imagined the product or service, started the business, built it up, and created the jobs? Who was it? The tooth fairy?" And to some extent, President Obama's statement is so ridiculous as to merit that sort of quick, flippant response.
(Here's the video of that loony remark.)
However, he's not entirely wrong. This reminds me of an argument that Massachusetts Senate Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren would probably make. If he's talking about a mid-sized or large business, where an entrepreneur has hired additional employees, then at that point the business's success isn't purely that of its founder.
Employees add value to a business through work and ideas. That's why you hire employees, after all. Steve Jobs didn't invent every last detail of the phones, computers, and tablets to come out of Apple over the last decade. There were engineers working on those products who developed them. So, employees help entrepreneurs to build their business. "Somebody else" did indeed play a part in making that happen.
But what makes the president's remarks so inane is the totality of what he's saying. He's not saying that entrepreneurs and employees work together to build a business. It's not a collaborative effort. It's all thanks to the employees. Usually, I can understand the way the president's mind works on most issues by examining it through a pragmatic, liberal, or progressive framework. This one baffles me.
As I explained, I can see that he has some of a point, but he's still just obviously wrong on the broader point. Sure, the employees help to build the business, but the business itself wouldn't exist without the entrepreneur. So, to say to entrepreneurs and to business owners, "...you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen," is just wrong. It's silly. They did build that by setting the foundation for the business.
Entrepreneurs are almost always the hardest workers in their business. They work a simply insane number of hours to get their idea off the ground. If they succeed (and they face a tremendous risk if they don't), then they'll start to grow and to hire employees to help. Honestly, if I were an entrepreneur and I read those remarks by the president, I would be furious. It's a tremendous insult to the true job-creators in America, entrepreneurs.
In the context of a long, somewhat rambling campaign speech that touched on every issue under the sun, it may seem as though I'm over-exaggerating the importance of a minor thing he said. But President Obama isn't a stupid man, or even one who makes off-the-cuff remarks he doesn't really mean. He's a very smart man, and he meant what he said.
When the most important issues for most Americans are economic growth and job creation, I believe it's essential to know exactly where both candidates stand on the importance of entrepreneurs. Yesterday, we learned that President Obama believes that entrepreneurs don't build businesses. Ultimately, they're irrelevant. Take that for what you will." © Principles and Policy, July 14, 2012
The Global Warming Lie & Money Pit
Have you seen this video: "BBC: The Great Global Warming Swindle"? It was outright-banned from leftist, hate-filled, dirtbag, lowlife scumbags, Google.com's and YouTube.com's websites, by the mentally-ill, left-wing, global warming idiot wackos, but I've preserved it, for posterity, aka you, me and *ours*. Watch, be informed and download it for others to see. It's on my corporate server, and will stay there, BTW.
Here's what the Global Warming Scam is all about. Sweet, huh? They're so transparent, aren't they?
Here's everything you need to know about the Global Warming Fraud, and why it's a good thing. It's a l-o-n-g article, so get a sandwich, iced tea and settle-in, for a very informative read. I'm right there with you, BTW.
The "Greenhouse Effect" is a natural and valuable phenomenon, without which, the planet would be uninhabitable. Global Warming, at least in recent times, is real. CO2 is not a significant greenhouse gas; 95% of the contribution is due to Water Vapor. Man's contribution to Greenhouse Gasses is relatively insignificant. We didn't cause the recent Global Warming and we cannot stop it. Solar Activity appears to be the principal driver for Climate Change. CO2 is a useful trace gas in the atmosphere, and the planet would actually
Here's a listing of The Best Global Warming Videos on the Internet.AlGore is a corrupt, lowlife, dirtbag, lying criminal scam artist, and he desperately needs to meet Lee Harvey Oswald's or James Earl Ray's "kin". Or perhaps John Hinckley should get his requested "vacation" in AlGore's neighborhood.
Hey, fat, shit-for-brains, bloated, liar, huckster, fraud, criminal, charlatan, scumbag, loser, disgraced ex-VP AlGoreBore (LIAR-TN), is back using $300 million of OPM (Other Peoples' Money) to promote his Global Warming Bullshit, after the worst Winter in over 100 years. Welcome back, fatso huckster asswipe, AlGoreBore!
Roger Revelle of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Harvard University and University of California San Diego, spits on the lying scumbag, AlGoreBore. My, my, oh my. (((snicker))) No, there's no consensus on Glo-bullshit Warming, other than it's a LIE! Just
Corpulent, creosote-filled, gasbag asshole.
There's another "ice age" coming, not the AlGoreBoreLiar 'Glo-bull warming' crap.
Larsen B Ice Shelf in Antarctica collapses in 2002 = Glo-bullshit Warming? Doubt it."Mother Nature's In Charge; We're Just Along For The Ride." – John D.M. Shelley II, pre-1996
Read this Glo-bullshit Warming idiocy. Go ahead; I'll wait.
AlGoreBore's "hypocrisy"? See it right here!
You need to watch this 30 minute film; it's an eye-opener if you think that we're running out of crude oil, and that America has no reserves. We have more oil and natural gas in Alaska alone, than all the rest of the world's known reserves, COMBINED! Grab an adult beverage, and watch it.
Better get out your Winter coats, 'snuggies', wool socks and snow shovels, as it seems we've got an 80-year "Little Ice Age", on the way. Yawn; no biggie.
AlGoreBore's "Glo-bull Warming Bullshit" has spawned so-called 'cottage industries' around the world, worth hundreds of millions and probably billions of dollars,
Corpulent, creosote-filled, gasbag asshole.
F*ck all the "Glo-bullshit Warming Alarmists"! I say, When-THEM-UP, and cleanse the planet, if they try to physically-intimidate and hurt anyone! I will; count on it! "Get in my face", assholes, and that'll be your last day on this Earth! If there are any "dissenting scientists" out there, who need protection, just get in-touch with me, and I'll guard you & yours. You can count upon that, folks!
Have you taken "The Global Warming Test"? If you have a sentient, functioning brain, and a simple knowledge of "the facts", you'll easily get a 10-of-10, as I did. Go ahead, and give it a try!
Read this article and pick-out "The WWF's Big Lie". If you chose this paragraph — "Summer sea ice is now forecasted to completely disappear in the summer months sometime between 2013 and 2040 — something which hasn't happened for over a million years." — you'd be right. There isn't, and never has been and ice on the earth dated at a million years old, and who the hell was around back then to begin recording it? The lying sacks-of-shit at the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) are typical lowlife, left-wing wacko scumbags, in-bed with the "Glo-Bull Warming" Crap, of asshole AlGoreBore and his phony, money-making scam. The oldest, and not reliably-dated ice cores are >160,000 years, and those are shaky in fact, at best. So where did the lying WWF pull the million year crap from? Their asses, of course!
Corpulent, creosote-filled, gasbag asshole.
Shit-for-brains, mentally-ill, fat, bloated liar, AlGoreBore's (LOWLIFE-TN) "ally", in NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), which is run by AlGoreBore's chief scientific ally/"asshole/butt-buddy"— Dr James "Moron-Cretin-Asshole" Hansen (DIRTBAG-NASA) — and is one of four bodies responsible for monitoring global temperatures, announced that "last month was the hottest October on record". Total, factual bullshit and lies. This was startling. Across the world there were reports of unseasonal snow and plummeting temperatures last month, from the American Great Plains to China, and from the Alps to New Zealand. China's official news agency reported that Tibet had suffered its "worst snowstorm ever".
In the US, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration registered 63 local snowfall records and 115 lowest-ever temperatures for the month, and ranked it as only the 70th-warmest October in 114 years. So what explained the anomaly? GISS's computerized temperature maps seemed to show readings across a large part of Russia had been up to 10 degrees higher than normal. But When expert readers of the two leading warming-skeptic blogs, "Watts Up With That and Climate Audit", began detailed analysis of the GISS data they made an astonishing discovery. The reason for the freak figures was that scores of temperature records from Russia and elsewhere were not based on October readings at all. Figures from the previous month had simply been carried over and repeated two months running. Read this article, and find out why both lying, corrupt, criminal, subhuman idiots, GoreBore & Hansen, should be stood against a wall, and shot, IMO. In fact, the pathetically-socialist, left-wing UK, has just begun to awaken to what the "Climate Change Bill" will do to destroy their nation, or what's left of it. IMO, it's probably too late now to save the UK, but at least some of the more Conservative people over there, will at least get the chance to flee to America (or elsewhere), before we also "go down the proverbial dumper", as they've done. Heh.
Corpulent, creosote-filled, gasbag asshole.
On Friday, January 2nd, I ran a fully-attributed story in my weekly "Journal", which had links to other stories and facts, thoroughly-debunking AlGoreBore's trillion dollar scam and fraud, Global Warming". The Daily Telegraph UK's columnist, Christopher Booker, was the erudite author, and here is the link to that story. Nice job, Mr Booker!
Now, lowlife shit-for-brains dirtbag, Arkansas Gov Mike "DumbAss Turd-Boy" Beebe (ASSHOLE-AR), said that global warming is serious problem, not a "hoax," and requires more than a state response. "I think it's a threat, and I think global warming is occurring," Beebe-The-Shithead said in response to a caller to his statewide radio program who said he believed the climate change crisis was a "hoax." Idiot. Stupid idiot. Global warming is bullshit, you two-bit asshole! Crawl back inside of AlGoreBore's rectum, dumbWhen!
And global cooling goes merrily along, without any help from us mere humans, as it has for millions and millions of years.
Another "lie/error" in the favor of Glo-BULL Warming's false bullshit and lies? Got duct tape?
Here's the truth: Lord Monckton of Brenchley's Science & Public Policy Institute.
The commie/fascist/socialist liberal-demokkkRAT filth in the US Congress, have refused to allow Lord Monckton to
Corpulent, creosote-filled, gasbag asshole.
Corpulent, creosote-filled, gasbag asshole.
We are in a mini-ice-age for the next 30 years; get used to it!
UN: Glaciers are melting in some part of the world, while increasing in other parts of the world. So frigging what, dumbass UN scumbag trash? It's been happening for millions of years, idiots!
"SLIME (aka TIME) Magazine" can't even get it right. Read Bryan Walsh's crap and tripe about blizzards.
Amazing fact that all 7 glaciers on Mt Shasta (USA) are growing, not melting. Explain that, Glo-Bull Warming Assholes!
Climate change: who cares any more? When you, fat-assed AlGoreBore scam artist! You should be stood against a wall and executed for your fraud, lies and scams, asshole!
The most dangerous hazard to our health is the EPA. They are commie LIARS and must be abolished!
"Britain should brace itself for another freezing winter with the return of La Niña, a climate phenomenon known to disrupt global weather, ministers have warned. The warning coincides with research from the Met Office suggesting Europe could be facing a return of the "little ice age" that gripped Britain 300 years ago, causing decades of bitter winters. The prediction, to be published in "Nature", is based on observations showing a slight fall in the sun's emissions of ultraviolet radiation, which over a long period may trigger mini-ice ages in Europe." – Jonathan Leake, "The Sunday Times", 9 October 2011. It's cyclical and "mankind" has NOTHING to do with it!
Yes, the Earth is cooling 4.9°C/8.0°F, and quickly, within 20 years. Check the charts and data.
The corrupt, lying global warming USDA morons have revised the Plant Hardiness Map for 2012, to include their twisted agenda of CO2 emissions, glo-bull warming bullshit.
"Man-Made Glo-Bull Warming" is a farce and a fraud; here's why.
Some people just have far too much money, and too few brains, to even bother with taking seriously. And shit-for-brains, Billy-Bob Gates' ideas about "Geoengineering" (all land belongs to the big-government/big-corporate criminal complex), is one of them. Short version: "F•ck your "Right to Life, Liberty & Pursuit of Happiness".
Things Which Make Your Head Explode
A NJ "teacher", Arnold Anderson, is late to work at school, 111 times in 2 years, because he was "eating breakfast"? Seriously? His $117,000/yr job wasn't enough to motivate him? SERIOUSLY? FIRE THE MOTHERF•CKER UNION PIECE-OF-LOWLIFE-SHIT!
Just as the stinking, lowlife, white trash Clintons stole White House furnishings when they left, the O'Malley filth stole furnishings from the Maryland taxpayers; both are subhuman, criminal demokkkRATs who belong in prison.
Stupid "mudshark" white trash bitches, can't figure out that niggas + coke + money + gun = TROUBLE + DEATH. Ask OJ how that went.
Liberal Media BS
The most insidious power of the corrupt, criminal liberal media, is the power to ignore the truth.
Here, have some fun. Something stinks within America's newsrooms. It's the stench of liberal bias permeating the so-called mainstream media. From lies and deceit to distortions and character assassinations, the liberal media dish out leftist BS to drive their radical agenda.
Chris Plante, host of The Chris Plante Show on WMAL (DC) from 9-12, weekdays, said, "The most insidious power the media has, if the power to ignore." Think about what that really means and you can readily see what an evil force the corrupt, criminal, liberal-demokkkRAT-controlled, butt-kissing, fawning circlefest media assholes, are.
Think you can detect it? Take this test and find out just how much BS the liberal media are dishing out. Wear your hip-waders; the bullshit is deep!
Inside The Army's Spectacular, Hidden Treasure Room.
Remember that ending scene out of Indiana Jones where the Ark of the Covenant is boxed up and wheeled through an endless government warehouse?
Did you know that that place actually exists?
I was hugely-pleased, a little stunned at the secrecy, but half-expecting a juicy trove of treasures.
It is called the Center of Military History. It is located 30 minutes outside Washington, D.C., at Fort Belvoir in Virginia. The building itself is very nondescript.
But behind a series of highly alarmed doors and long, cement, camera-laden hallways. It is the highly sophisticated, climate-controlled treasure room where the army keeps its most precious artifacts.
The facility was built for $24 million in 2010. The cavernous warehouse is typically shrouded in total darkness. Motion lights illuminate only the areas in which someone is walking.
If I could get tickets, I'd fork over my first-born child. Oh wait; I don't have one. Heh. I'd go there in a heartbeat.
Some People Just Need Killing
It's not my intention to be the judge here — that's God's "job" — but rather to "hasten the meeting" so that He can send the following subhuman filth to the "Fires of Hell", "River or Lake of Sulphur", or whatever He deems appropriate. I'd gladly/happily volunteer, at no cost to any of my Hard-Working, Fellow US Taxpayers, to gladly/gleefully/happily headshoot these murderous, lowlife dirtbags of all stripes — their skin-color doesn't matter one whit to me, at all — and rid American Society's innocents — especially our too-vulnerable, precious children and the frail, defenseless elderly — of the subhuman criminals who prey upon them, once-and-for-ever. And yes, I'd rather see one innocent man convicted and executed, than 10 murderers, robbers, child rapists-murderers freed, to rob, rape and murder again. Hey, call me an "Old Fashioned Conservative"! Too harsh? Nah. Someone needs to take out the trash! I volunteer.
Society's innocents — our precious, defenseless children and the frail, defenseless elderly — must be protected from predators, murderers, rapists, robbers and other subhuman filth, at all times and at any cost, IMO.
The 6th Commandment actually says: "Thou Shalt Not Murder". It does NOT say, "Thou Shalt Not Kill." I personally don't consider any summary-execution — except by subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic pigshit — as murder, in any way, shape or form. It's "Due-Justice-For-Crimes-On-This-Earth", IMO.
The Death Penalty is The Foundation of Government.
Yes, I agree with the premise of this article, that "the death penalty is a Noahic Covenant with God, in a post-flood world", and America should apply it every-damned-day, to those deserving death for their crimes against society and its innocents.
"100 years from now, I want the filthy, stinking subhuman islamic/muslim filth's childrens' childrens' childrens' children to cower and cringe in fear whenever they hear the sounds of jet engines overhead because their legends tell of fire from the sky. I want them to hide in wet, dark caves and hellish-holes in the earth, shivering with terror whenever they hear the roar of diesel engines because the tales of their ancestors talk about metal monsters crawling over the earth, spitting-out death and destruction. I want their mothers to be able to admonish them with "If you don't behave, the Pale Destroyers will come for you", and that will be enough to reduce them to quivering obedience. I want the annihilation to be so complete that their mythology will tell them of the day of judgment when the stern gods from across the sea – the powerful Americans – destroyed their forefathers' wickedness."
Lowlife, subhuman, piece-of-dogshit, pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein, needs summary killing, as do all are in his child abuse ring. KILL THEM!
IMO, lowlife, sociopath, sexual deviant faggot, Owen Labrie needs summary killing for four misdemeanors relating to sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child. He was also found guilty of one felony for using a computer to "seduce, solicit, lure or entice a child under the age of 16. Fuck 'reasonable doubt'... KILL THE SUBHUMAN GARBAGE!
It's now time for White America to track down and salughter every black radical/commie/socialist, New Black Panthers subhumans, Black Lives Matter filth and whomever else wants to begin "lynching whites and killing cops". ALL OF THE SUBHUMAN FILTH NEED TO DIE! Find them and kill them!
A 4x illegal alien child molester? I'd volunteer to headshoot Juan Carlos Alvarez Rodriguez, at no charge to US Taxpayers.
I saw this headline, on Friday: "California: Male prisoners who call themselves women will be sent to women’s prisons". Say what? Her's my answer to that "problem"... KILL THEM ALL! Problem solved. Zero recidivism.
Here's 4 Injun lowlife subhuman muzzie filth in the US, who need killing, for terrorism: Yahya Farooq Mohammad, 37, and his brother Ibrahim Zubair Mohammad, 36, Asif Ahmed Salim, 35, and his brother Sultane Room Salim, 40. KILL ALL OF THEM!
Thanks for making my week, Florida! A former carnival worker – Oscar Ray Bolin Jr, 53 – convicted of killing three women in Florida was executed on Thursday after multiple overturned convictions and retrials, the first U.S. execution of 2016.
Another subhuman, murderous nigga needing killing. Lowlife, piece-of-shit, Quinton Tellis, 27, needs a bullet in his empty tribal, feral sambo head. Die, boy.
Track this murderous subhuman spic illegal alien murderer down, and kill him. Eswin Mejia needs a 230gr .45cal in the head.
