The fairgrounds are under water,
SR 4 is**down to one lane***(update) due to landslide, and the wildlife preserve is only for swimming birds at the moment.

Polar Ice Caps, Same as 1979. Well, Al?

Of course you lib folk might want to check out the debunking of Al Gore’s falsehoods at the Huffington Post here.
In December Global Warming Guru, Al Gore, predicted the polar ice caps would melt within the next 5 years (see below). We’ll see. But the graph below shows the polar ice cap levels are about the same as they were in 1979 (shortly after the global cooling/mini ice age scare)

The current cooling period was not predicted by IPCC. The IPCC (UN) predictions for global warming are in pink, reality is reflected in the squiggly line:

Is Obama Poised To Cut Social Security Benefits?


The New York Times reports Obama Promises Bid to Overhaul Retiree Spending, claiming, “overhauling Social Security and Medicare would be ‘a central part’ of his administration’s efforts to contain federal spending.

Obama says he wants to “rein in Social Security and Medicare.” As we baby boomers go into retirement, the already bloated sacrosanct system is expected to consume more and more of a bankrupt treasury.

President Bush tried unsuccessfully to repair the bloated sacrosanct system as Democrats fought every measure to repair it. Now, Obama may try to curtail the growth of Social Security as well as medicare, another program that is sacrosanct to his party.

Will Democrats wake up and finally admit the system is in deep trouble? Or, will Kennedy, Reid, Pelosi and the rest fight Obama with as much vigor as they fought Bush over reform?

Will Obama be accused of trying to steal the elderlies retirement? Will Senator Al Franken debut in the Senate by taking the pacifier out of his mouth to body slam efforts to reform th system?

Will they admit they screwed up by not working with Bush a few years ago and actually fixing the system?

Campaign rhetoric is over and now, Dems must deliver for country, not the party nor more dictatorial power grabs.
