Where are our White Heroes?

I've been around close to fifty years.
And I have a very difficult time thinking of a single true "caucasian" hero.
Someone of a Euro background who has put their life and living on the line for a belief or principle.
My heroes are Nelson, Muhammad and Martin.
Dudley George died for his beliefs.
Why do we of pale skin not have any person who can match up against these men?

Toronto Star - Masters of Redundency

The baby stories light up stupidity. The Mulroney link goes to a story of the cop who soaked the public for $1.2 mill in legal feels. Doh.
But this is Canada's largest circulation newspaper so the error must be mine.

IPCC Nobel Winner (?) Global Warming Denier

Our buddy JR found the following nugget and was kind enough to post a link in our comments:
I've had a lot of fun recently with my tiny (and unofficial) slice of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize awarded to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). But, though I was one of thousands of IPCC participants, I don't think I will add "0.0001 Nobel Laureate" to my resume. [...]
I'm sure the majority (but not all) of my IPCC colleagues cringe when I say this, but I see neither the developing catastrophe nor the smoking gun proving that human activity is to blame for most of the warming we see. Rather, I see a reliance on climate models (useful but never "proof") and the coincidence that changes in carbon dioxide and global temperatures have loose similarity over time. [...]
Mother Nature simply operates at a level of complexity that is, at this point, beyond the mastery of mere mortals (such as scientists) and the tools available to us. As my high-school physics teacher admonished us in those we-shall-conquer-the-world-with-a-slide-rule days, "Begin all of your scientific pronouncements with 'At our present level of ignorance, we think we know . . .'"<>

A Typical IPCC "Expert"

Yup - another global climate change expert...

Was she REALLY a Nobel Prize Winner as Dion implies?
“She was on the team of Nobel Prize winning Canadians for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change."

Academic Expertise: Kirsty Duncan is Adjunct Professor at the University of Toronto where she teaches medical geography. She also helps community groups to Fortune 500 organizations plan for a possible pandemic. She wrote a book (self-published I hear).

Additional Qualifications: A Liberal

Wanna Know the Truth? Roswell? Area 51?

Click here
Of course, the truth is that it's a military installation. They store obsolete materiel there. Betcha there's even a de-commed H Bomb shell or ten. Likely a lotta mothballed aircraft that could be brought into service.

With a Whimper

I feel free as I finish my second week without logging on to point at the foibles of others or make a few foibles of my own. I doubt anyone missed us, and I didn't really miss blogging so a happy non-marriage resulted.

When I read about Suzuki declaring that politicians that don't agree with him should go to jail, when I saw that Hep C denier Allan Rock had regained a pulpit from which to slander Brian Mulroney, when I looked at a weather forecast that called for nothing but frigid weather for the foreseeable future, when I considered the debate from the MSM supporting Islamic fundamentalists' rights to shut down Levant, I realized: All is Lost.

We are focked.

Western governments will continue acting only in their self-interest, in the belief that they only win when everyone else loses. Our planet will get colder and golf seasons shorter; and very possibly the laws of a primitive culture will become the law of the land before I pass on, sometime around the Mulroney inquisition reaches its 2000th day of sitting.

So that's all for now, folks.
