Springhill Mine Disaster 50 Year Memorial

My Grandfather changed shifts the week before the Bump of 58. It was his crew and those were his buddy's caught down there.

The Global Warming Answer is Simple

From Lorne Gunter in Nat Post:
Don Easterbrook, a geologist at Western Washington University, says, "It's practically a slam dunk that we are in for about 30 years of global cooling," as the sun enters a particularly inactive phase. His examination of warming and cooling trends over the past four centuries shows an "almost exact correlation" between climate fluctuations and solar energy received on Earth, while showing almost "no correlation at all with CO2."
Take the $100 million and BUY 20,000 SUV's (CBL January 2008)
Take all the bank bail-outs and spend the money on SUV's.

Carrying forward the logic of the Global Warmongers, it would be Good for the environment, Good for the Alberta Oil Fields and Great for the Ontario Auto Industry.

Here we go again...

The Gazette

They look like grad pictures from a 1970's nursing school.
There is management of a campaign and then there is control.
The first works, the second gets recognized as freakish and gets push back from electors.
The CPC may or may not win a majority (I'm betting on 135 seats), but that is despite their incompetent campaign leadership, who again turned a majority into a minority.

Political Animals Learning a Second Language

We have a new Scot Terrier puppy and two cats. They suffer each other and have frequent run-ins, often involving lots of hissing and hopping and barking.
Of course, the puppy just wants to play, and he sincerely makes an attempt to communicate and invite the kitties to play tug or other exciting puppy games, to the degree that he actually has a different bark with the cats - it's kind of yelpy and high pitched. Like he's trying to talk in their meowy feline tongue but just can't get the phrasing right.
Is still likely more comprehensible to its audience, though, than the futile attempt to speak a second language by a certain Party Leader who wishes to be PM.

Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up, Oct. 10th 2008

From the Daily Bayonet - All the Important Hypocritical Global Warming Theorist Case Studies in One Place
Welcome to the weekly round-up of all things a growing climate skeptic needs. This week might be more linky than snarky, I reached a personal high of being Snark McSnarky of the Snark People last week, and I'm not quite over it yet.
Lots of good stuff for you this week, and if you've ever read a round-up before, you're going to love this week's return hottie. Don't forget to return up here to read the good stuff after you've gone and had your sneaky early look at her. You're so predictable.
