Obama’s done a good job

with 34 comments

I would have to say he has surprised me with his ability to displease both of the normal sides of debate in America.

Well done Obama.

His publishing of the Bush interogation memos are balanced by his decision not to prosecute those who followed the brief.

His interaction with explicit enemies of the USA such as Chavez and Ahmedinejad is balanced by his approval the use force against the Somali pirates.

He’s putting in a tax cut for the middle classes, and not raising taxes for the rich, just allowing their tax credit to expire.

I think the hallmark of a good leader is that he or she is attacked from both sides of a debate. So far it would appear that no one is pleased, so I give him a very good grade.

What do you think?

Are we trying to raise a generation of genetically ‘fragile’ boys?

with 10 comments


According to Sue Palmer:

“We males, she says, are the fragile sex. The way Palmer describes it in her new book, the Y chromosome that defines maleness is essentially “an X chromosome with a little bit missing“, meaning that the female anatomy is our species’ “default mode“. Because Y sperm swim faster than X, more male embryos are created by a factor of 120 to 100, but nature evens out the ratio by birth. Before the advent of modern medicine any foetus with an abnormality – more of them male than female – would have failed but now more make it into the world, regardless of how faulty their make-up, which may explain why there is a greater incidence of learning difficulties and emotional dislocations among boys than girls. She also suggests that “foetal testosterone speeds the growth of the right hemisphere of the brain, the side that specialises in spatial relationships… and slows down development of the left hemisphere, housing the main language areas.”

So have we messed with the natural balance again?

Does this explain why boys seem to be failing so much more than girls these days?

Or is it just reverse sexual discrimination?

Anti-capitalist watermelons

with 3 comments

watermelon1The agenda for tackling climate change is just another attempt by left-wing looneys, disguised as environmentalists, to bring capitalism and liberty to its knees.

Environmentalism means government controlling the environment – meaning controlling all of our surroundings – which in turn necessarily entails government control over people and corporations.

The political philosophy of the environmentalist agenda is not green but rather red neo-communism, aiming at central control and massive government land acquisition. Environmentalism stands for taxation of producers, no property rights and old fashioned wealth redistribution.

G20 Watermelons

The ecoalarmists have no real evidence that greenhouse emmissions caused by humans have any impact on the environment. Evidence that climate change is cyclical, regardless what man does, means that global warming and cooling is going to happen.

Rather than worry about ‘the planet’, which ain’t going nowhere, you should be much more concerned about the watermelon agenda – green on the outside, red on the inside. Their intrusion knows no limits – they are searching your dustbins right now!

You can see some of their foot-soldiers in action here:
