I don’t know which is more bizarre, me posting an uncritical link to a Maureen Dowd column, or Dowd penning a column taking the One to task for his,
Oh, and blue state governors are unhappy as well.
But at least the Obama team is keeping us safe. Just ask Janet Napolitano.
Hey, got to give credit where credit is due. Obama promised to unite the country and it looks like that has now been achieved–at least the left and right are coming together more and more these days. In opposition to Obamacare. But still…
In the words of another famous liberal (Joni Mitchell) “Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you got till it’s gone…”
Well, I don’t know about the water, but the ice is thick on the streets this morning. We got maybe a half inch of snow yesterday which wouldn’t be a problem. Unfortunately, with the temps being in the single digits Fahrenheit, any snow melted with chemicals or tire friction is now good ol’ fashioned ice.
Ain’t no way I’m driving on that slippery slope outside my apartment. No way, no how.
So I’m *ahem* reluctantly taking the day off work.
Anyone have a guess as to what this is?
Ok, it is a satellite image of the Lena River Delta in Siberia.

To Matt and Margaret, who became engaged to be married on Christmas morning.
Way to go guys!
Who can forget that great holiday classic with Jimmy Stewart as George Bailey? Well, courtesy of Iowa Hawk, we get this year’s remake “It’s A Wonderful Bill”. Enjoy it here.
Oh, and if you are wondering why you don’t see much of the original “It’s a Wonderful Life” on television, well you can thank our friends in Congress for that too.
Man, I would have preferred a lump of coal to that Obamacare bill, but I guess with greenhouse emissions and all that wouldn’t have been political correct.
Actress Ha Ji-won playing Santa for us this Christmas…
Hmm, maybe she says Ha! Ha! Ha! instead of Ho! Ho! Ho!
Or maybe not.
Season’s greetings from Korea, to my family and “fringe” readers. Wishing everyone, including Catholics, people under the age of 30, Democrats, blacks, muslims and a significant portion of the other minorities including the asian women that do or do not think and act like Michele Malkin) and most especially all you angry scared middle age white men, best wishes for a happy holiday. And if I left anyone out, Merry Christmas to you too!
I had a house full of Koreans over for a Christmas dinner last night. Ribeye steaks have become my traditional feast staple in Korea it seems. I cooked them to near perfection (comparatively speaking, meaning not blackened) and my guests appeared to enjoy them. I was also pleased that my famous Aunt Pat’s recipe fruit salad was a big hit as well.
This evening I will spend some time with my Dolce Vita family and enjoy a turkey dinner and probably some darts as well. Hey, I’m easy to please.
I do especially miss being with my children and grandkids on this special day but distance and time never lessen the love I hold for them in my heart. Thinking of you all!
Well, given the promise for Hopeless Change, I guess changing the Great Seal to match the times makes sense.
A Condom allows for:
No, I’m not talking about Obama now. I’m talking about the greatest review of a Star Wars film ever. It’s making the rounds on the ‘net, but if you haven’t taken the time to check it, you can start here.
Trust me on this.
Well, it is. How cold? This cold:
A waterfall outside the Seocho District Office in Seoul was frozen yesterday. It was the coldest day yet in seasonal lows, reaching minus 9 degrees Celsius (15.8 degrees Fahrenheit)
Channeling Colonel Jessup, Tigerhawk reminds why Obamacare is a killer…
This week our yoja is Han Ga In, a model/actress said to have the “perfect Korean nose”.
More of Ga In and other Korean beauties here.
Well, the One has sent a missive to the One in North Korea. No word on the contents as yet, but the assumption is Obama is begging Kim to return to the six nation talks to denuclearize the DPRK. Good luck with that.
I’m guessing the Prez did his usual grovel about America’s past sins and promised an enhanced goody bag in return for promises the NORKs won’t keep. In other words, business as usual.
Well, this rather unique and creative Christmas decorating idea has been making the rounds on the ‘net, facebook, and email. I guess that makes it pretty much inevitable that it would wind up here on LTG as well. Just remember, you saw it here LAST!
A guy that works for Federal Air Marshalls in the states had an unusual Christmas decoration.
He said the bad news was that he had to take it down after 2 days. He had more people come screaming up to his house than ever. Two things made him take it down: First, the police advised him that it would cause traffic accidents - they told him they almost wrecked when they drove by. Second, a 55 year-old lady grabbed the 75 pound ladder almost killed herself putting it against his house and didn’t realize it was fake until she climbed to the top. She was one of many people who attempted to do that. His yard couldn’t take it either. He has more than a few tire tracks where people drove up into his yard.”
So, I happened upon a movie I quite fancy on YouTube. Yeah, it’s a just silly romantic comedy starring Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn, but I’m a sap for romance. Plus, the theme song by Johnny Mathis and Jane Oliver is worth the price of admission.
Actually, the price of admission is free here at LTG. ‘Cause I am posting the links to each 10 minute chunk right here. Enjoy!
Th-th-th-that’s all folks!
I mentioned in the previous post that the global warming zealots want anyone with questions to “shut the hell up”. Now, comes news from the Copenhagen climate conference that journalists who persist in asking inconvenient questions will be silenced with the help of armed U.N. thugs.
I guess there are worse fates than being forcibly silenced. Here’s the reaction a commenter got when he questioned the faith (it is a religion you know) of an AGW true believer:
Well Jacob, that’s about the only way you’ll get me to shut up.
What is it you don’t want us to find out?
It is beginning to look more and more like the frenzied effort at damage control in the wake of revelations of questionable scientific practices regarding climate change is failing. Even the MSM (in this case CBS) is reporting on the apparent conflicts of interest amongst leading proponents of AGW who are receiving millions in grants and government funding that would be at risk should another cause of the recent warming trend be discovered.
The point I’d like to emphasize is that questioning the scientific methods and integrity of AGW proponents does not make you a climate change
