Edwards Caught

In October of 2007, i asked Is Edwards Toast? Turns out he was, but now The National Enquirer claims they caught Edwards visiting his mistress in a hotel.

The married ex-senator from North Carolina – whose wife Elizabeth continues to battle cancer — met with his mistress, blonde divorcée Rielle Hunter, at the Beverly Hilton on Monday night, July 21 – and the NATIONAL ENQUIRER was there! He didn’t leave until early the next morning.

Meanwhile Slate tells us that the LA Times is gagging its reporters and bloggers on the subject.

The whole thing makes me gag and that goes for all you liberals still sporting some kind of Edwards bumper sticker on your car. Don’t you have any shame?

Obama Birth Certificate: Forged?

Might be a good idea to get to the bottom of this before the nomination:

Sunday an expert in electronic document forensics released a detailed report on the purported birth certificate — actually a “Certification of Live Birth” or COLB — claimed as genuine by his campaign. The expert concludes with 100% certainty that it is a crudely forged fake: “a horribly forgery,” according to the analysis published on the popular right-wing Atlas Shrugs blog.


Sanguine

I love words. Bev gets Wordsmith every day and I love this new word:

orthoepy
PRONUNCIATION:
(or-THO-uh-pee, OR-tho-ep-ee)
MEANING:
noun: 1. Study of the pronunciation of words. 2. Customary pronunciation of a language.

Say it aloud! or-THO-uh-pee.

Writing about words, I was reminded of a post I wrote recently, in which I wanted to use a word for complacent and “sanguine” popped into my head. I wrote it down and then I questioned myself, “Is that the proper word?” So I Googled “define sanguine”. What I found had to do with

# confidently optimistic and cheerful
# a blood-red color

That was not what I intended. Carol Burnside had the same problem with the word. She wrote, “In my head, it sounds like a good word to describe a lazy river or a couch potato. Not so.

In my head sanguine seemed to be a good word for complacent. The word Sanguine really means:

1. cheerfully optimistic, hopeful, or confident: a sanguine disposition; sanguine expectations.
2. reddish; ruddy: a sanguine complexion

So, I have a sanguine impression of getting old.

The Coldest Summer Ever?


BILL ROTH / Anchorage Daily News
Fresh snow was visible on the Chugach Mountains east of Palmer July 23, 2008, when clouds lifted during a break in the rain showers.

You just can’t make this stuff up, if you challenge the global-warming hoaxsters. The Anchorage Daily News reports:

Right now the so-called summer of ’08 is on pace to produce the fewest days ever recorded in which the temperature in Anchorage managed to reach 65 degrees.


Obama Disses Troops!

What’s going on with Obama and the armed services?

First I read in Dr. Jack Wheeler’s To The Point that on Obama’s visit to Afghanistan, according to US Marine Battle Captain Jeffrey S. Porter, the troops were ready to meet and shake Obama’s hand and Obama stiffed them.

As the Soldiers were lined up to shake his hand he blew them off and didn’t say a word as he went into the conference room to meet the General. As he finished, the vehicles took him to the ClamShell (pretty much a big top tent that military personnel can play basketball or work out in with weights) so he could take his publicity pictures playing basketball.

Then in Germany,

Sen. Barack Obama scrapped plans to visit wounded members of the armed forces in Germany as part of his overseas trip, a decision his spokesman said was made because the Democratic presidential candidate thought it would be inappropriate on a campaign-funded journey.

Shades of Hillary Clinton.

Sen. McCain rightly says it is never inappropriate to visit the wounded. Indeed!

We Comply With The British IASH Standards Of Conduct

All bloggers who write for the Forbes Business and Finance Blog Network and have ads sold by Adify have been asked to verify in writing that we comply with the British IASH standards of conduct:

Adify-powered networks, such as Forbes Business and Finance Blog Network, along with all other ad networks selling site inventory that is accessed by UK audiences, must comply with periodic audits by the Internet Advertising Sales Houses (IASH) Council (http://www.iash.org), the governing organization for online advertising in the UK, in order to accept UK originated media campaigns. These audits verify that the inventory being sold meets certain criteria for quality, appropriateness, and legal compliance, collectively referred to as the Site Accreditation Requirements (Schedule A of The IASH Code of Conduct, whose language can be found at the bottom of this email).

FAILURE TO DO SO WILL MEAN THAT YOUR SITE IS NOT IASH-COMPLIANT, AND YOUR SITE WILL BE EXLUDED FROM PORTIONS OF MEDIA BUYS TARGETING THE UK.

In order to be compliant, the blog must not “contain barred content.” There are several definitions of barred content like Hate Content, Obscenity and Indecency, offering bombs and gun information, spyware and invalid clicks generated by prohibited methods. Under Hate Content are these words:

Content articulating views intended or reasonably likely to cause or incite hatred of
any race, religion, creed, class or ethnic group.

I immediately thought of the Danish cartoons of Muhammed that newspapers wouldn’t print, but the world’s bloggers did. I printed those cartoons in my blog. I regularly take to task, our government on the illegal immigration issue. I regularly take liberals and McCain to task and government as a whole. Oh, don’t forget the global warming “religious” hoaxers that I challenge on their “facts”, BUT I am not inciting hatred of “any race, religion, creed, class or ethnic group”, so I signed.

If that kicks me out of the UK club, it’s a pity. Then, it’s not a club I would voluntarily join.

Obama Speaks in Sderot

How many times have I heard liberals say, “I want a president, who when he speaks, doesn’t sound like an idiot. Someone that sounds intelligent.”

What they really want is someone who sounds like Sen. Barack H. Obama. Here are his words in rocket-shelled Israeli town of Sderot:

Answering an Israeli reporter’s question in Sderot, he was confused about which Senate committee he served on. “Just this past week, we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee—which is my committee—a bill to call for divestment from Iran as a way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don’t obtain a nuclear weapon,” he said. Just one problem: he actually sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

How did he do?

NewsMax is Misleading You

Here are two diametrically opposed points of view:

This first chart credits Bloomberg LP for the data and differs from everything that I’ve read and charts I’ve seen. It’s from an NewsMax that says we are on the brink of a major oil bust. They say

We’re not alone in our thinking. According to the consensus forecast tracked by Thomson Reuters, oil prices are expected to end this year around $91 a barrel, falling to $90 by the end of next year and $82 by the end of 2010

The chart that reflects the general view of oil that I subscribe to is this one:

Newsmax’s chart only covers out to May, 2008 and does not reflect reality and I think highly misleading. It feeds into all those who say that oil companies have a lot of their oil shut in; that OPEC and the Saudis have plenty of supply; that the oil companies and the car companies are sitting on technology that would solve the energy crisis. Why do we have to wait until the lights go out to do something?
