In case you haven't heard, Attorney General Eric Holder has testified before congress that his justice department is looking into gun control methods that might include finger print identification or a bracelet that "talks to" a gun, to allow use only by the lawful owner.
Of course, freedom loving individuals have nothing to worry about. In light of the NSA scandals, we should not assume the government would track gun owners through their smart bracelets--haha, that's just speculative fiction . . . our government would never . . . admit to such a thing.
I personally believe we should use this technology on the guns we sell to criminals across the border. I also see a great name for the operation: The Fast and the Fabulous--Bling Bracelets by Eric Holder.
I studied biology in college, not physics, astronomy, or geology, but I am pretty certain I could have made a wild guess and still landed within the "100 million years" range of dates for the origin of the moon.
With temperatures well in the negatives and a strong east wind over the weekend, the water in a bay around the island of Lovund in Norway froze quickly. So much so, a school of fish became trapped as they swam in the ice.
Ingolf Kristiansen came upon the sight Sunday while walking his dog.
Somebody is off their rocker. Either Polar Bears are the wimpiest predators on earth, or Global Warming is a farce.
The polar bear's excuse is that she does not have the thick layer of insulating fat that comes from eating seals and whales in the wild.
The Global Warming Alarmist excuse must be that they have that extra layer of fat in their heads.
Let's face facts, climate, by its very nature, changes. Just like season's change, we have always had periods of relatively warmer weather and periods of relatively colder weather. Climatologists looked at a cooling trend in the 70's and said that if it continued, we would have another ice age by the 21st Century. In the 90's the trend reversed and we saw a general warming. Climatologist then cried that our industries were causing unnatural heating and in a few years, the ice caps would be melted.
Keep in mind, part of the model used to determine that global temperatures are rising too fast includes data from the 70's when we were in a cool phase. When alarmist say that temperatures have been rising for the past 50 years, they purposely neglect to mention that temperatures were falling before they were rising.
We are now back into a cooling trend (where the ice caps have increased by about 29% per year) so the Global Warming Alarmists have changed there mantra to climate change--as if climate change is not a naturally occurring phenomenon.
Personally, I find it disgusting that people like Al Gore are getting rich off of lying to people about the nature of changing climate.
Have you seen the White House's latest round of advertising for Obamacare (aka the Affordable Care Act)? It features the president holding a sign that says, "#GetCovered because nobody should go broke just because they are sick."
Pretty lame, all things considered. Here are some signs I think the president should hold up:
