Name that Country

Sorry folks...with being away from home I sometimes forget what day it is and it looks like I missed all of Thursday!!

Last week’s country was Greece!

This week is a bit harder than a relatively easy European country…8 out of 10.

AP: Clinton 'misspoke' about '96 Bosnia trip

Here is what she said last week Monday:

“I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”

Heads down running for the cars vs. walking, smiling, and shaking hands with an 8 year old…that is not a misstatement that is an all out lie.

But she’s a Clinton…what else can we expect from them?

Well last week was easier than I thought it would be. It was, of course, Madagascar!

So if last week was that easy then this week’s should be even easier! 3 out of 10

Lou in Print!!!

If you needed any other reason to vote for Lou...this quote about KRM from Diane is precious!

“I don’t think a referendum’s necessary. I think there’s been enough evidence, enough proof.”

Well Diane…I don’t think we need an election on April 1st either…we should just put Lou into your place…There has been enough evidence to show that you have not been really good for Racine...I think that is proof enough.

ECO2 = EI x SEA x POP??

There is still one man out there beating the drum on the whole myth of Global Warming that is an economist and a politician…he is Vaclav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic.

Vaclav spoke at the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change and this article (Climate alarmists pose real threat to freedom) from The Australian is an edited reprint of his speech.

In his speech he proposes the equation seen here:


Emission Intensity (EI) x GDP per capita (SEA – size of economic activity) x Population (POP) = gives us the volume of CO2 produced

Based on this equation, which is a realistic representation of the CO2 production for any country, President Klaus says the following:

“If we really want to decrease ECO2 we have to either stop the economic growth and thus block further rise in the standard of living, stop the population growth, or make miracles with the emissions intensity.”

So what should we do?

In President Klaus’s speech he proceeds to prove how economic impacts (decreases in GDP) have had these decreases (and increases) to the CO2 output in Europe and how that the alarmists will cause a great deal of destruction to the worlds economies if realistic information such as these are not taken into account.

Personally, I have been a vocal advocate for having all of these “man-made” global warming nuts hold there breath until the matter is resolved…I mean come on the hot CO2 coming out of Algore alone would reduce CO2 emissions by a huge percent!

But in reality we do not want governments determining what the population should be nor do we want them to squash economic growth. If we are to forgo the growth in both population and economies we will never be able to achieve anything more…mankind will come to an abrupt halt.

Gotta love him a little!

You know I don’t like the guy because of his political beliefs but I love his moxie!!

Referring to Hillary’s suggestion that Obama might make a good VP for her.

Obama at a rally today: “If I'm not ready, how is it that you think I should be such a great vice president?”

He additionally said: “I don't know how somebody who is in second place is offering the vice presidency to the person who is first place”

Name that Country

It is a good thing that this week’s county is a 1 because none of you even fathomed a guess last week.

My wife looked at the country and said “you know that looks like ******.” My jaw hit the ground…she nailed it…she then shares that she had to do a report on this county when she was in middle school!

This week we will have two countries, last weeks and this weeks.

Good Luck!!!

#1 with the hint it is a 3 out of 10

Hint: To be different from their neighbor they added a word to their new counties name.

#2 no hint needed. 1 out of 10

Why am I first seeing this today?!?!

That was my reaction when I read this article: Virginia Supreme Court Rules that Giving Power to Tax to an Unelected Body is Unconstitutional

This morning (Feb. 29), the Virginia Supreme Court unanimously held that the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) is unconstitutional in Marshall v. NVTA.

The court found that the NVTA, created in 2002 and given the power to tax in 2007, exceeded its powers when it levied seven taxes on residents of Northern Virginia. The taxes will have to be refunded in their entirety.

Could this have precipitous effects through out the nation?

Personal Responsibility

I had an interesting conversation this weekend. Without saying names or outing anyone I’d like to go through the general issue.

Recently (just last week in fact) there was a person that is publicly saying that they would be willing to do one thing so that they could get something else in return.

I have been told (through a 3rd party) that the individual in question feels like they are being pressured to do something that they do not wish to do.

They are unwilling to say something publicly to oppose the action and there will be action taken on this situation soon.

So what is to be done?

Shouldn’t personal responsibility come into play? Shouldn’t the person state publicly that they feel pressured? Wouldn’t it be better for everyone involved to be open and honest about the situation?

Action will be taken and unless the individual contacts someone that can make a stand for them there is little that can be done.
