Things to Ponder Today & Cowgirl's To-Do List
Powerline reports that radical (is there any other kind?) Muslim groups in Indonesia are threatening the life of our President during his upcoming visit. Can you guess how much money I will send to them the next time they have a natural disaster? Above is a pic lifted from Powerline, which leaves no doubt as to what the Indonesians have in mind.
Hugh Hewitt indicated that a show of force (a/k/a "exercises") by a couple of U.S. carrier groups in the Persian Gulf is making Iran a little nervous. Works for me.
Captain Ed has a good post on global freezing vs. global warming. I, too, am old enough to remember the "scientific" predictions in the late 1960's and early 1970's that a return to the ice age was imminent.
I'm sticking with weather cycles are cyclical (thus the term "cycles"), and since scientists cannot accurately predict weather, often times, even a day ahead, I'm not losing any sleep over their down-the-road predictions. I only check the "weather" to decide how to dress each day.
Dafydd at Big Lizards has a great post on the Democrat solutions to the "culture of corruption" in Congress, which apparently means something to the effect, that now all the graft goes to the Democrats. Dafydd defines earmarks as, "an earmark is the primary means of payback by a politician to a private person or company in exchange for the legal bribery of campaign contributions." Read the whole post; great as usual.
Ok, that's it for me. Sounds like the news is "same-o, same-o." Today is house blessing day, make the cornbread day, put the frozen turkey in the fridge day, and get nails done day. Plus, running as many of those last minute errands as possible, considering every one I have on the list involves places that will be closed from Thursday until next Monday.
