WMD Blast: Weekend Edition

Here are a few things that I thought might be of interest this weekend...

  • Globaloney: The Complete List of All Things Caused by Global Warming - The absurdity of blaming global warming for everything from acne to yellow fever and everything in between is illustrated when you see them on a list with links to back up each and every claim. Enjoy!

  • Butler County: Cox Newspapers' other intrepid reporter has a piece in which he claims that the county is looking at ways to conserve fuel because it is the "green" thing to do. I don't see evidence of that in his article, but there are plenty of concerns raised about the price of gasoline.

  • Observation: Why is it every time I get a news alert about Jean Schmidt that comes from a blog that has to do with healthcare it winds up being about China and oil? Shouldn't a blog called "Eye on Public Healthcare" be focused on something a little more relevant when it comes to Jean Schmidt?

  • Boehner Column: New Technologies Deliver New Cleaner Energy is up over at the Butler County Bugle.

  • FISA: Rep. Bob Latta (OH-05):
    WASHINGTON- Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) made the following statement after voting for H.R. 6304, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Amendments of 2008.

    “H.R. 6304 is a crucial piece of bipartisan legislation that will keep our country safe from those who wish to compromise our freedoms and liberties. This bill protects our civil liberties and contains important retroactive immunity protection for those companies that kept us safe in a time of distress. House leadership on both sides of the aisle should be commended for coming to a compromise that puts the security interests of the American public first as this bill was debated this year,” Latta said today after the vote.

  • Reductio ad Absurdum: Lou Dobbs goes off the deep end...and there isn't a life guard out there, my friends. Lou says it is time to impeach President Bush over...wait for it...tomatoes. Will somebody get Mr. Dobbs his medication...
