Overnight Open Thread (17 Oct 2014)

Well, we all have front row seats for the ongoing mess. Liberalism just not up to the task anymore.

Greg Gutfeld made a salient observation the other day. He pointed out that liberalism thrives in times in which there are no crises. In times such as those, liberalism raises lightweight issues and gives them gravitas. School lunch programs, child obesity, the size of soda drinks, gay rights, free contraception, are their rallying "causes celeb".

However, when crisis presents itself, we reap the consequences of liberalism in governmental leadership. More frequent now are the vapid responses to crisis led by the conveniently appointed, those "politically correctly" installed into position of power. The responses tend to be inept and politically expedient. Imagery, polls and elections are the focus rather than the required action and solution. Is seems to be contrary to their DNA to depart from the warm and fuzzy to the tactful, strategic and necessary.

Winter Is Coming

Interesting theory that the amount of snow covering Eurasia in October is an indication of how much icy air will sweep down from the Arctic in North America in December/January. If true, it's gonna be a cold one folks.

Here's the Accuweather forecast for winter. Joe Bastardi has been beating the drum about a winter that quite possibly could be similar in vein to the winter of '77-'78 which had two nasty blizzards.

Drum Battle


New York City rats found to carry 18 new viruses. It includes the Seoul Hantavirus which causes, wait for it, hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome. Thankfully death occurs only 1-15% of the time. Mostly.

In other virus news, does Ebola make people stupid?

It's almost as if one of the symptoms of Ebola is an unaccountable urge to travel and spread the virus.

And now we have a lawyer who is known as a political fixer of political problems being named the Ebola czar. Brilliant.

Remember, everything is under control.

Music News

Not one artist's album has gone platinum in 2014. That's because music today mostly sucks. Heck, most people didn't even like the free U2 album.

CO2 And Plants

Not a surprise. Study shows increase of CO2 is lower than predicted because plants. 17% lower.
