Well, darn it! They had their hopes pinned on all that ice melting and raising sea levels all around the world. Remember when they were warning us about Miami and Manhattan being under water? Well, not so much, apparently.
Teach The Children February 25, 2011Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.
This great little video shows what happens when children are encouraged to really LEARN, and are not indoctrinated. This man has a great love for children. Makes me want to become part of the “Granny-Cloud.” (you’ll see in the video) Pass this around.

Why must some people be subjected to reality while others live like it doesn’t exist? The reality of Wisconsin is that unemployment is around ten percent. My home state of Wisconsin is facing a projected $3.6-billion budget deficit. That’s bigger than New York’s deficit, and they have ten times more people than we do. We don’t even have enough money to pay for $137 million’s worth of this cycle’s budget, which ends on June third…”

“…documents in the leaked emails include quotes from HBGary CEO Aaron Barr saying, “There are a variety of social media tricks we can use to add a level of realness to all fictitious personas… Using hashtags and gaming some location based check-in services we can make it appear as if a persona was actually at a conference and introduce himself/herself to key individuals as part of the exercise, as one example.”
Additional emails between HBGary employees, usually originating from Barr, discuss the vulnerability social networking causes.”

Why am I not surprised to find out that the leftists have been populating the social networks with artificial profiles? Thousands of fake “friends” and contacts are being discovered. These fake people are invented to give the leftists a platform from which to insert the desired propaganda messages on as many of the accounts as possible.
Intercepted emails from a security company which specializes in such profiles have surfaced, revealing something that most denizens of the social networks never imagine will happen. They are all so thrilled to see their “friends” list growing apapce that they seldom stop to wonder just how many of those unknown names and faces are, in fact, attached to real people.
This software capability has been formulated at the request of the U.S. Government, specifically, the people’s house, and its current occupant.
What do these things suggest to you?
Could it be possible that the left has nowhere near the numbers or support they claim is theirs? Could it be that they might be using fraud (of whatever legality and importance) to pretend that their numbers are much higher than they are in actuality? This only tells me that they are a. Desperate; b. Running scared; c. Willing to cheat, lie, and defraud to keep the upper hand.
I hate to break it to the aforementioned resident, but we already have him greatly outnumbered. He just keeps showing us what he’s going to do. Whatever happened to that wily, secretive, and cunning “strategic thinker” that fooled the voters in 2008?
The times, they are a-changin’.
Monkey Business February 20, 2011Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.
Monkeys do what monkeys do. They love to show off. They jump, rant, screech, throw poop, rip up grass, and make aggressive moves toward the other monkeys they feel afraid of at the moment, all in an attempt to force the other monkey to back down, yield its territory, and go away.
Democrats and leftists fall all over themselves copying monkey behavior. For the most part, their monkey behavior has always worked in the past. To the dems, apparently, all they have to do is show up in numbers, demand special treatment loudly, make a mess of the area, rant, call names, threaten, bully, call it “satisfactory” and “patriotic,” and claim the territory. At least, that’s the tactic they have always used in the past, and it has generally worked.
The demonstrations in Wisconsin last week just showed that the tried-and-true method of monkey business is still alive and well on the left. It’s interesting to note that not only was this union-organized monkey business, but the current resident even got HIS flying monkeys in on the action, organizing, getting names, writing out fake doctor’s excuses for teachers playing hooky, and generally boosting their mailing lists/donor rolls for the upcoming campaign.
I think the dem monkeys were surprised when the TEA party people were able to muster around 15,000 people (who came at their own expense) to their own rally in support of Gov. Walker, and stood their ground against all the posturing, histrionics, and simian displays on the left. The worm has turned. (Or, is that mixing my metaphors?)

Denying Death February 17, 2011Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.

One of the worst enablers of the disaster of alcoholism is denial. And, frequently, it’s not just the drinker who is in denial. Often, the family members and close friends are just as deeply involved in protecting their loved one from the consequences of his or her behavior. It’s easy, for instance, for the drinkers or their protectors to deny that they indeed have a problem, that the drinking causes problems, or that their families suffer because of their behavior. Denial is a very handy tool for people who refuse to face up to the truth and to reality. Denial is NOT a river in Egypt. But they aren’t the only ones who deny an obvious truth.
Denial is also a stage in the process of accepting death. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross years ago delineated the steps, or stages, of grief and death. Perhaps because leftists believe in no one but themselves and the State, they never seem to move past the first stage in the process, that of denial.
Leftists are usually atheistic, or look-see pidgin, small “c” christians who have decided for themselves they can build their own heaven right here on earth. (Aside: If this was possible, wouldn’t that Utopia already be here for the leftists who worked so hard for it in the past?) It would be interesting to find out just how many of the mainstream media’s pundits and commentators are practicing atheists, as well.
it’s hard for leftist ideologues to deal with the truth that everybody actually dies, no matter how good, bad, rich, poor, selfish, or altruistic they may have been during their lives. Because of this inability to face up to the reality of death, they struggle mightily to build their personal version of heaven on earth, perhaps in the hopes that death will pass them by because they have been so helpful, etc. In the process, they deny the reality that they will die.
For the most part, leftists have their own “theology.” They have never feared God, but they have, somewhere in the back of their deepest uncoscious, the knowledge that He will judge them by their actions during their lives on earth. This knowledge is in the deepest, darkest corners of their unconscious because they have pushed it there in their denial of God’s sovereignty. If He is sovereign, they are not. And, if they are not sovereign, they won’t be able to cheat death, etc.
Well, good luck with that, you guys…
From Cowrie To Copper February 15, 2011Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.
I’ve posted on here before about my nostalgia for the “old days.” Not necessarily the “good” old days, but definitely OLD.
One of the things I remember was dollar bills that were Silver Certificates. That meant, for you younger readers, that that bill was redeemable for the face amount in actual silver. You could take your bill to the bank, and they would exchange it for a silver dollar that was all silver, all 90% silver, to be exact. They were called “cartwheels.”
Nowadays, you have a Federal Reserve Note, that is not backed by any real treasure, and is redeemable for goods and services, or for more FRN’s, or some coin change which has long since lost all its value, as well as all its silver or gold content.
Pennies are no longer copper, they are zinc, with a thin copper veneer. Dollar coins are made of several utility metals. Gold, as a metal, has increased in value to the point where it is almost unaffordable except by large investors. Silver, while much cheaper, is creeping up in value, as well. Meanwhile, our paper money is still worth nothing in real value, and only has a perceived value as a means of exchange. (Seeing that most of the stuff we can buy these days is cheap Chinese junk — if you can pick it up, the chances are 95% that it is Chinese-made — it figures. Cheesy, fake money buying cheap, tawdry junk from overseas.)
Money is what we say it is. To the Polynesians, it used to be cowrie shells and coconuts. To the Yaps of Yap Island, it was huge stone rings. To the Tlinghit, it was a large copper shield called a “‘tinnah,” or, simply, a “copper.”
So, apparently, today’s U.S. legal tender is whatever it has been designated to be, which is currently zinc, copper, tin, and paper. I wouldn’t be surprised if there is more than a dollar’s worth of technology and materials in a modern U.S. $1.00 bill, but that doesn’t change the fact that whatever we call our money; whatever it looks like, and whatever its value, there is definitely more of it around, but it is worth decidedly LESS.
