will you listen to Cal?

Posted by Citizen on August 23, 2007

OK, maybe you don’t want to believe my take on the climate change scam being run by junk scientests and algore, FINE. But how about Cal Thomas? A real journalist. A real writer. And not a blogger. Will you listen to Cal?

… global warming fundamentalists are pushing planet worship on us in a manner that would make a jihadist proud.

There are at least two characteristics all fundamentalists share. One is the exclusion and sometimes suppression of any and all information that challenges or contradicts the belief one wishes to impose on all. The other is the use of the state in pursuit of their objectives, overriding the majority’s will.

I’m just saying, give truth a chance..,

climate lies discovered

Posted by Citizen on August 11, 2007

There are scandals upon scandals in climate politics. There are “scientists” who’ve given up scientific inquiry and completely sold out to the nuttiest fringe of the issue. More’s the pity because there are actual benefits to ascertaining the evidential truth of the matter. Lying on purpose and covering up the lies and lying about the cover-up doesn’t contribute to facts supported by evidence.

For the record I think there are cycles of climate change with ample evidence to support that view. I don’t think there is one bit of conclusive evidence that human activity is responsible for altering those cycles, and I am sceptical enough to doubt that humans have the capability of altering and managing the climate changes we observe. Enough about me, how about some facts for a change?

 Years of bad data corrected; 1998 no longer the warmest year on record

My earlier column this week detailed the work of a volunteer team to assess problems with US temperature data used for climate modeling. One of these people is Steve McIntyre, who operates the site climateaudit.org. While inspecting historical temperature graphs, he noticed a strange discontinuity, or “jump” in many locations, all occurring around the time of January, 2000.

These graphs were created by NASA’s Reto Ruedy and James Hansen (who shot to fame when he accused the administration of trying to censor his views on climate change). Hansen refused to provide McKintyre with the algorithm used to generate graph data, so McKintyre reverse-engineered it. The result appeared to be a Y2K bug in the handling of the raw data.

McKintyre notified the pair of the bug; Ruedy replied and acknowledged the problem as an “oversight” that would be fixed in the next data refresh. NASA has now silently released corrected figures, and the changes are truly astounding. The warmest year on record is now 1934. 1998 (long trumpeted by the media as record-breaking) moves to second place.  1921 takes third. In fact, 5 of the 10 warmest years on record now all occur before World War II.  Anthony Watts has put the new data in chart form, along with a more detailed summary of the events.

Honest people will take note of the details that are highlighted in the pull quote and then read the original and then read the supporting evidence and come to their own conclusions about who the liars are.

The believers, the algoreites and their ilk, will obfuscate, or just scream and lie. Perhaps an honest handful will reassess the noise and see through the scam. Reality is both simpler and more complex than most pundits let on.

In case you suspect me of exaggerating claims, this spot provides a good follow up on the cover ups. It’s positively shameful that junk science is so cheap and common, and it’s stupefying how sheepish their followers actually are..,

whosoever signs the check is the tax payer

Posted by Citizen on July 21, 2007

My favorite site has another dose of right thinking common sense. This brings up one of my favorite methods to raise howls of disbelief. Buckle up, this requires an open mind and clear thinking. Ready?

The entire US tax code is a ponzi scheme. It has wage earning Americans believing that they pay their own tax bills and social security/ medicare costs. Right? Answer this: do they write a check every pay period and send the monies to the appropriate appropriating agencies? They think so. Their check stubs show all the ‘deductions’ that they’ve ‘paid’, right?

Is that true though? Believing something doesn’t make it true. What’s really going on? Most employees have probably never paid someone else’s wages. But if they had been an employer they would know that it’s the employer who pays the taxes, and the risky IRS reporting scheme  fools the wage earner into believing that he actually paid those taxes, when in fact the employer paid them.

Well, you say, if the employer had paid all that revenue to the employee, and the employee had sent the money in, it would be the same thing, a wash, right? NOT REALLY.

Say that the payroll is a big bowl of jelly beans. The contract states that every week you get 327 jelly beans, except that the JBS (jelly_bean_service) demands that the employer send it 49 jelly beans for one item, and 22 jelly beans for another, and 11 for yet another category of ‘deduction’. So your compensation for the week is actually 245 jelly beans. And the JBS compensation for allowing the employer to employ you is 82 jelly beans.

POP QUIZ  Here’s the trick question, pay attention: who paid the beans to the JBS?

BINGO !!  It could not possibly be you, because you never had 327 jelly beans. You only got 245 jelly beans. That’s all there ever was. The rest of it is accounting smoke and mirrors. You got the smoke and the employer paid the beans to be able to remain in business.

How would I know this? I was self employed most of my life. I wrote the checks to the IRS and filed all the paperwork so I could remain in business. Ergo:

The person who signs the check is the person who pays the taxes, REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE CHECK STUB SAYS. The check stub lies to you. It’s just amazing that so many millions of Americans blindly believe this accounting trick. I think even the overclass has come to believe it, and they should know better.

You didn’t pay anything if you didn’t have it in the first place. The taxpayer is whoever signs the check to the IRS. If you didn’t cut the check, you didn’t pay the taxes.

the power of inconvenient truth

Posted by Citizen on July 5, 2007

The results of the studies are published today in the journal Science.Over geological timescales the Earth’s temperature rises and falls, leading to ice ages and periods of relative warmth. Between 450,000 and 800,000 years ago it would have been about 10C in summer and -17C in winter. When temperatures later fell the area was covered in ice and this ice sheet seems surprisingly to have remained in place when temperatures rose again about 130,000 years ago. During this last interglacial period temperatures were 5C warmer than today.

5C warmer than to day. About 130,000 years ago. Let’s see, the cars were gas guzzlers, wait, there were no cars? Well, it must have been that nasty old industrial revolution, wait, there was no industry?

When you listen to the likes of gore and his kind, you get the distinct impression that only man’s existence and activity is causing ‘global warming’, when IN FACT the globe has cooled significantly over the last 130,000 years, or so. Inconvenient, eh?

In case the dots aren’t connecting fast enough for you, let’s note that the earth and the creatures survived the last time it was hotter than it is now, and we will survive again, if that’s where the climate is going.

I believe that algore is repulsively corrupt and dishonest, and I am certain there is a long line of human beings who will be better off if his lunacy isn’t policy.

OK, OK, let’s say you are in algore’s camp. What’s to worry about? The global warming has been warmer, why should it bother you if earth’s climate wants to go there again? Why not, in fact, help it get along thataway?

That’s what I thought..,

the power of statistics

Posted by Citizen on July 5, 2007

There is a counter argument to this that makes my idea that garbage-in yields garbage-out null and void. Quite the opposite in fact, complete with illustrations explaining why garbage-in equals high precision and trustworthy info out. You be the judge. I have experience with people who are so enamoured by their statistical prowess that they have no practical common sense.

Once in a fabrication shop I saw a welder move a support for a beam that was going to have tons of pressure exerted on it. The welder could see from the drawing that the beam was located in the wrong place, and the crane would fail if it were installed as drawn. I literally heard an engineer tell the fabricator to move the beam back where he drew it. The welder tried to explain it to the engineer and the engineer said this: “You’re a welder working for low wages, I am a college educated engineer working for a high salary. You will put that beam where I drew it.” The welder said “OK”.

Do you need me to tell you that the second the lever was thrown on the hydraulics the beam, relocated to the specified place, broke under the stress, the crane fell into a tangled heap, and it was deposited on the scrap heap. Common sense 1, engineers 0.

Now if this were the only case in history that would be that, an anomaly that has no statistical significance. Unfortunately for the statistically inclined this is not an anomaly, it’s a prevalent pattern.

In fact another engineer in the same shop made a similar assertion of knowing it all. The company was building double scissors lifts to service the first fleet of Boeing 747 aircraft. Again a welder modified something and the engineer forced the welder to recant and make the item to the engineer’s specifications.

This time the welder put an over-travel stop on the rail that supported the platform and the engineer had it removed. “OK. Sure thing Boss.”

The airline executives showed up for the final demonstration and proof of concept before signing off on the big order. It was a wonderful and bright day, teams of scruffy low wage welders and herds of suits mingling with the white collar scientific engineering community. Roughly forty of the suits and engineers got onto the platform as the test weight, giddy as school boys at the carnival, and rode that lift to the top.

They rode it to the top and then some. They were about forty some feet off the ground when the platform screeched off the track past the place where the welder’s stop had been removed. The smartest guys in the business were clinging to the handrails and screaming to be rescued. That was something of a problem because the company didn’t have anything that could reach that high to get the smart guys off of their perch. A fire fighting ladder truck that didn’t have anything better to do drove in and save their day.

Based on the statistical power of large numbers, according to this explanation, we could add up all the other occurrences of equally stupid operations and come to the very precise conclusion that people enamoured of their own prowess with numbers cannot be trusted to come to a responsible conclusion, eh? The problem is obvious to the welder-class and the engineer class is oblivious. Who are ya gonna trust with the future? I know what the numbers are telling me, common sense 2, engineers 0..,

It’s not as though I am the only one to question the scam. Here’s a scientist whose guesses, added up with other scientist’s guesses, amount to a very precise refutation of the climate change scam.

According to Swedish paleogeophysicist Nils-Axel Mörner, who’s been studying and writing about sea levels for four decades, the scientists working for the IPCC have falsified data and destroyed evidence to incorrectly prove their point.

When you see that algore, for whom there was no controlling legal authority to prevent him from breaking U.S. election laws, and the U.N. for which there is also no controlling legal authority to prevent the massive sanction fraud or massive rape by UN troops, the idea that any sane human being would get on their bandwagon only proves Honest Abe’s dictum:

“You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” –
Abraham Lincoln

Who is standing in line to be fooled by gore and the ‘united’ nations?

And a note to engineers, there are two types, and you know who you are. The type I mentioned cannot be confused with the engineers who know the beam is in the wrong place and the stop is in fact needed to keep the suits from going over the edge..,

warming my _ _ _

Posted by Citizen on July 4, 2007

The climate is falling scam got crowded out by the amnesty nastiness for a while, but can it be much longer before that drum starts bleating again?

I offered this man’s site earlier as an antidote to junk science climate scams. Here is a look at the discussion that takes place on his site, with easy to understand discussion of the facts concerning accurate temperature measurements. The simple conclusion is that anyone making predictions based on data that can have a +/- degree or two of error is just making noise. It’s the old GIGO, Garbage-In_Garbage-Out. The forecast temperature prediction CANNOT POSSIBLY BE MORE ACCURATE THAN THE DATA THAT INFORMS IT.

When the climate scam artists are talking about half-degree temperature changes they are just blowing smoke. There is far too much temperature noise in the data to make any kind of predictions to tenths of a degree an absolute impossibility.

This makes algore’s assertions all the funnier, and the legions of sycophants who believe gore are literally hysterical.

But don’t take my word for it, let the people who actually know what they are talking about inform you:

another stinking inconvenient truth

Posted by Citizen on July 1, 2007

Someone had to say it.

Amid all of the xenophobia and nativism surrounding the immigration debate, there is a real security concern. In the language of the bureaucracy, the problem is referred to as the “OTMs,” or Other Than Mexicans.

Thousands of non-Mexicans are caught crossing the United States border every year. They cannot be sent back to Mexico, but must be deported to their home country. Until recently, most were given a deportation hearing date and then simply released. Not surprisingly, few showed up for their scheduled appearances. Beginning last year, however, most who are caught are put into detention. They are then put through a procedure called expedited removal, under which many are flown back home within a few weeks.

Many of these non-Mexicans come from Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, the Palestinian territories and other areas of concern to counterterrorism officials. What we don’t know is how many others are evading the Border Patrol every year and what happens to them when they leave the border area. It’s not too hard to imagine that these illegal immigrants, who have clearly spent a lot of money getting to Mexico and then into the United States, are able to buy themselves an identity and corroborating papers once in an American city.

RTWT. In “light” of the gasoline attack in Glasgow and the unexploded roadside bombs in London, it would be extremely stupid to stop calling the coliseum of corruption and demanding exteme border protection measures.

The axis of political corruption in DC seems to be able to do everything and anything to benefit anyone and everyone but their actual constituents. The ‘immigration reform’ bull, (I know, it was a ‘bill’, but it was mostly all ‘bull’), rewarded the most illegal segment of the foreign trespassers and intruders, while at the same time endangering the legal immigrants as much as the home grown Americans who pay the tax bills.

What’s worse, it guaranteed that the ‘OTMs’, as Clark and the bureaucracy call them, would be given a free pass without going to jail or paying $200. It’s not over until we have some documentable accountability from the axis of surrender in the Nation’s capitol. Call, it’s only a few minutes to turn up the heat for something that can demonstrably save your life..,

what really stinks

Posted by Citizen on June 28, 2007

Still think it’s harmless to allow any number of people into America?

 Here’s the film to see.

You see how the political overclass bows to the demands of the invading masses of ‘unskilled labor’? That’s exactly what you can expect from those spineless parasites when the ‘religion of peace’ starts making its demands.

That’s already begun you know. Our security from militant islam is no greater than our security from the ‘workers’ who do the jobs ‘that Americans won’t do’. Those blood-sucking parasites in the U. S. senate will bend over to appease that group faster than they’re bending over to appease la raza.

Are you interested or curious about what those ‘undocumented immigrants’, (they’re undocumented all right, but they ARE NOT IMMIGRANTS), cost us, out of your pocket, every year?

In FY 2004, the average low skill immigrant household received $30,160 in direct benefits, means-tested benefits, education, and population-based services from all levels of government. By contrast, low-skill immigrant households paid only $10,573 in taxes in FY 2004. A household’s net fiscal deficit equals the cost of benefits and services received minus taxes paid. The average low-skill household had a fiscal deficit of $19,588 (expenditures of $30,160 minus $10,573 in taxes).

At the state and local level, the average low skill immigrant household received $14,145 in benefits and services and paid only $5,309 in taxes. The average low skill immigrant households imposed a net fiscal burden on state and local government of $8,836 per year.

The fiscal burden imposed by low skill immigrant households is slightly greater at the state and local level than at the federal level. The annual fiscal deficit for all 4.54 million low skill immigrant households at the state and local level in 2004 was $49.1 billion. Over the next ten years the state and local fiscal deficit caused by low skill immigrants on state and local governments will approach a half trillion dollars.

want to know why?

Posted by Citizen on June 27, 2007

Would you like to know why Americans hate amnesty, and in growing numbers are hating the putrid political class? You should not read this if you are over age, under age, have any illnesses, are a natural born tax paying United States citizen, have heart problems, stroke problems, digestive problems, or any kind of amnesia, vertigo, or cognitive dissonance, because this information will cause all of the above problems:

Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas is a fairly famous institution and for a variety of reasons:

1. John F. Kennedy died there in 1963
2. Lee Harvey Oswald died there shortly after
3. Jack Ruby, who killed Lee Harvey Oswald, died there a few years later by coincidence

On the flip side, Parkland is also home to the second busiest maternity ward in the country with almost 16,000 new babies arriving each year. (That’s almost 44 per day — every day)

A recent patient survey indicated that 70 percent of the women who gave birth at Parkland in the first three months of 2006 were illegal immigrants.’ Crikey, that’s 11,200 anchor babies born every year just in Dallas. According to the article, the hospital spent $70.7 million delivering 15,938 babies in 2004 but managed to end up with almost $8 million dollars in surplus funding. Medicaid kicked in $34.5 million, Dallas County taxpayers kicked in $31.3 million and the feds tossed in another $9.5 million.

The average patient in Parkland’s maternity wards is 25 years old, married and giving birth to her second child. She is also an illegal immigrant. By law, pregnant women cannot be denied medical care based on their immigration status or ability to pay. OK, fine. That doesn’t mean they should receive better care than everyday, middle-class American citizens. But at Parkland Hospital, they do.

Parkland Memorial Hospital has nine prenatal clinics. NINE. The Dallas Morning News article followed a Hispanic woman who was a patient at one of the clinics and pregnant with her third child — her previous two were also born at Parkland. Her first two deliveries were free and the Mexican native was grateful because it would have cost $200 to have them in Mexico. This time, the hospital wants her to pay $10 per visit and $100 for the delivery but she was unsure if she could come up with the money. Not that it matters, the hospital won’t turn her away. (I wonder why they even bother asking at this point.)

How long has this been going on? What are the long-term effects? Well, another subject of the article was born at Parkland in 1986 shortly after her mother entered the U.S. illegally — now she is having her own child there as well. (That’s right, she’s technically a U.S. citizen.) These women receive free prenatal care including medication, nutrition, birthing classes and child care classes. They also get freebies such as car seats, bottles, diapers and formula.

Most of these things are available to American citizens as well but only for low-income applicants and even then, the red tape involved is almost insurmountable.

Because these women are illegal immigrants they do not have to provide any sort of legitimate identification — no proof of income. An American citizen would have to provide a social security number which would reveal their annual income — an illegal immigrant need only claim to be poor and the hospital must take them at their word.

My husband is a pilot for the United States Navy (yes, he fought in Iraq) and while the health care is good, we Navy wives don’t get any of these perks! Car seats? Diapers? Not so much. So my question is this: Does our public medical care system treat illegal immigrants better than American citizens? Yes it does!

As I mentioned, the care I have received is perfectly adequate but it’s bare bones, meat and potato medical care — not top of line.

Their (the illegals) medical care is free — simply because they are illegal immigrants? Once again, there is no way to verify their income. Parkland Hospital offers indigent care to Dallas County earn less than $40,000 per year. (They also have to prove that they did not refuse health coverage at their current job. Yeah, the ‘free’ care is not so easy for Americans.)

There are about 140 patients who received roughly $4 million dollars for un-reimbursed medical care. As it turns out, they did not qualify for free treatment because they resided outside of Dallas County. So the hospital is going to sue them! Illegals get it all free! But U.S. citizens who live outside of Dallas County get sued! How stupid is this?

As if that isn’t annoying enough, the illegal immigrant patients are actually complaining about hospital staff not speaking Spanish. In this AP story, the author speaks with a woman who is upset that she had to translate comments from the hospital staff into Spanish for her husband. The doctor was trying to explain the situation to the family and the mother was forced to translate for her husband who only spoke Spanish. This was apparently a great injustice to her.

In an attempt to create a Spanish-speaking staff, Parkland Hospital is now providing incentives in the form of extra pay for applicants who speak Spanish. Additionally, medical students at the University of Texas Southwestern for which Parkland Hospital is the training facility will now have a Spanish language requirement added to their already jammed-packed curriculum. No other school in the country boasts such a ridiculous multi-semester (multicultural) requirement.

warming my foot

Posted by Citizen on June 24, 2007

http://www.norcalblogs.com/watts/weather_stations/

This is a must read piece that shows exactly how absolutely bogus the man-made temperature raising mania actually is. The short story is that there are a LOT of official temperature measuring stations that are giving totally false information because of where and how they are placed. Check out this fabulous source of information.

Remember the old saying, GIGO, garbage_in_garbage_out? Algore is getting garbage in and dishing garbage out. Every scientist, falsely so-called, should have to give an account of the purity of his temperature sources. Guess what? It ‘ain’t gonna happen’. This is another outrage purpetrated against Americans and once the shamnesty ordeal is finally cremated Americans should be calling congress about this. Something is rotten in America, and junk science is part of it. Kyoto treaty bite my socks. Let’s turn up the heat on the phoney man-made climate warming scam. Just say NO to stupid false information.

As a matter of fact, there is scientific evidence that suggests that we are about to enter a period of global cooling. The consequences of this are far more harmful to the well being of humanity, but I suppose the dollar signs in the eyeballs of the duped are clouding rational judgement about the climate changes.

Check out this site for the story and link to more information. Again TAB is foremost in the information we can use stream. This is my favorite blog site, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
