These images are from a game camera, which explains some of the fuzziness. It's a cool camera, however, since it gets some great shots, like the whitetail deer looking up at the gray squirrel.

There is already an overwhelming volume of evidence* for global warming & once again, this ain't a natural cycle, no matter what the fat druggie says.
The research reveals that sediments retrieved by University at Buffalo geologists from a remote Arctic lake are unlike those seen during previous warming episodes.
The UB researchers and their international colleagues were able to pinpoint that dramatic changes began occurring in unprecedented ways after the midpoint of the twentieth century.
"The sediments from the mid-20th century were not all that different from previous warming intervals," said Jason P. Briner, PhD, assistant professor of geology in the UB College of Arts and Sciences. "But after that things really changed. And the change is unprecedented."
*When you read the piece in this link, you will note that it is from two years ago, 2007. It's clear to me that the wingnuts will never be persuaded by any science, or by anything to be honest. It is this sort of head-up-their-collective asses that is so disheartening. It wasn't always like this.
But President Nixon made the task facing EPA's first Administrator even greater by insisting upon the importance of viewing "the environment as a whole." The President's charge to the first EPA Administrator was to treat "air pollution, water pollution and solid wastes as different forms of a single problem." The main purpose of the reorganization that gave birth to EPA was to introduce a "broad systems approach [that]...would give unique direction to our war on pollution."

We kick the riff-raff out & left them freely die. After all, we're from Texas & we want to secede from the liberal United States. No surprise here, given the 16 years of Bu$hCo.

The biggest embarrassment Wisco has produced in some time, Michael Gableman, continues his slimeing of the Wisconsin court system. Even the other justice bought & paid for by the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, Annette Ziegler, supports public funding.
Ed Garvey has a suggestion. I think we will all agree with Mr. Garvey.

Another asshhole strikes at the heart of marital problems in America. Oh, & he has loads of black friends that can use his bathroom. I kid you not.

Not the dickhead corporations, who keep raking in the dollars, at the expense of their workers. I'm hoping this can't last much longer.
...total weekly pay for production workers, pilots among them, representing 80 percent of the work force. That index has fallen for nine consecutive months, an unprecedented string over the 44 years the bureau has calculated weekly pay, capturing the large number of people out of work, those working fewer hours and those whose wages have been cut. The old record was a two-month decline, during the 1981-1982 recession.

She wins Nobel Prize for Literature. I've never heard of her. That's no surprise, really, given my inability to sustain any reading lately. Good for her, good for the Germans, good for the five books in translation into English, good for the booksellers, bad for my checkbook.

Just awful. We need a big time fix & we need it now. Bu%hCo started this & offered up %700 billion to bail out his rich friends on Wall Street, & President Obama hired some of the very people who created the problem to fix the problem. It doesn't appear to be working. Time to really begin the fix, not just bailing out the wealthy & messing with the auto sales. Every smart person with actually cares about people, about this country, knows what it takes to fix the economy. What wrong, apparently, is that the fix is in & we're screwed.

I suppose not, since justice is blind, fair, & non-vindictive, or so they told me in high school. Given this, however, I'm not so sure. & given the dirty, underhanded Michael Gableman victory, I'm really not sure. Justice Louis Butler, Jr., Gableman's target will be getting a better job, however. Replacing Shabaz will be very helpful to working men & women,
