Next he will say that he won't heal the oceans

The Obamamessiah, now that he isn't campaigning for the presidency, has started to backpedal from his earlier statements and is starting to tell the truth. The latest example of his cooling of expectations is about the economy. Instead of healing the economy and putting Americans back to work the minute he takes office, he now says that it will get worse before it gets better. As I recall, during the election, I don't remember him ever saying this. I only remember him saying how he was going to heal the oceans and the economy at the same time.

If you are wondering why he is doing this, it's to prepare everyone for the real world realities of being president. He must suddenly realize that the people who voted for him did so because of all the promises he made during the campaign, but like we all know, all his promises come with expiration dates. Welcome to the real world, Obama supporters. Your man isn't who you thought he was.

Another Oops! Report from Science

Yet another Oops! report from the scientific community: two researchers now say that maybe the massive melting of glaciers in Greenland isn't all that catastrophic afterall. Don't you wish all the scientists would get on the same page when it comes to global warming scaremongering. Anyway, after having spilt the beans about not getting all excited about the melting glaciers in Greenland, they give the standard disclamier that the findings are focused on only one glacier, and that sea levels could still rise higher than projection. They also drop the tidbit that other Greenland glaciers behave differently, and the dynamics of the Antarctic ice sheet are still poorly understood and nor should the new study be taken out of context to suggest that climate change is not a serious threat, because, like you know, it is. Ergo, lest any of you global warming skeptics think that this is proof that there is no global warming, well, you can't judge what happens over the whole earth just by what happens on one glacier (like what global warming scaremonger extrodinaire, Al Gore, does).

I have always said that global warming is a natural cycle of the earth and man doesn't have anything to do with it.


Welcome to the real world, Obama

Soon-to-be President Obama is suddenly finding out the difference between the world the presidential campaign and the world where we all live. Case in point, he is now starting to backpedal on his promise to shudown Gitmo within the first 100 days in office. Although he still says that closing the base in 100 days is his goal, he is now saying that "our legal teams are working in consultation with our national security apparatus as we speak to help design exactly what we need to do", which is "politicalspeak" for "Hey, I know I said 100 days, but now, reality is setting in and maybe I was a bit too quick to open my mouth". Welcome to the real world, Obama. If it had easy to shutdown the place, don't you think President Bush would have done it a long time ago?

The law of unintended consequences

Yet another example of the law of unintended consequences, applications for concealed weapons permits in the state of Utah have quadrupled from four years ago and going along with that, gun sales in the state of Utah have gone up from just over 125,000 in 2007 to almost 140,000 in 2008. For those of you who are gun control advocates (otherwise know as "gun-fearing whoosies" on other blogs) and cannot fathom why this is happening, I only have two words for you: President Obama. Thanks to Obama, gun dealers in Utah are having a very good year.

Although he didn't really say much about gun control during the election, we all know that any statement and/or promise he may have made comes with an expiration date, ergo, it's best to "git yer gunz" now before Obama throws the 2nd Amendment under the bus and outlaws anything to do with the right to bear arms, 'cuz he's a liberal and that's what liberals do, pass laws against law-abiding citizens and kiss-up to criminals.
