    These greedy bahstids …

    From their meeting notes: “In the same 1980 meeting the task force also heard from Professor John Laurmann of Stanford University on possible conversion to alternate energy sources. Laurmann advised the task force of the potentially catastrophic consequences with continued global warming if fossil fuel consumption continued unabated. From the meeting minutes of Laurmann’s presentation to the API task force:
    LIKELY IMPACTS:
    1 C Rise (2005): BARELY NOTICEABLE
    2.5 C Rise (2038): MAJOR ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES, STRONG REGIONAL DEPENDENCE
    5 C Rise (2067): GLOBALLY CATASTROPHIC EFFECTS”

      I gotta be honest here, as far as smoking guns go, this one seems a little too good to be true. The source here is a former API task-force director. Is he trying to clear the record or save his bacon? I’d be curious to know if there has there been any third party confirmation as to the authenticity of these documents?

    Doubling Down on W

    “2015 was, of course, the year of Donald Trump, whose rise has inspired horror among establishment Republicans and, let’s face it, glee — call it Trumpenfreude — among many Democrats. But Trumpism has in one way worked to the G.O.P. establishment’s advantage: it has distracted pundits and the press from the hard right turn even conventional Republican candidates have taken, a turn whose radicalism would have seemed implausible not long ago.”

    $250,000 a Year Is Not Middle Class (damn right it’s not!)

    “HILLARY CLINTON has vowed not to raise taxes on the middle class.

    It’s a pledge that has worked well for others on the campaign trail before her, a resonant assurance to voters who saw themselves as middle class or aspired to be. But it’s a bad promise.

    Mrs. Clinton is using a definition of middle class that has long been popular among Democratic policy makers, from her husband to Barack Obama when he was a candidate: any household that makes $250,000 or less a year. Yet this definition is completely out of touch with reality….”

    I’m going to do a short 2015 nice list page because I KNOW most of you won’t know what to do with it–yes, this is a gentle change.

    • waverly says:

      Thanks Jack, I know people aren’t used to it. But I for one could use a little “nice” right about now. “Gentle” is a good thing. So is “kind”.

    • MSolomon2 says:

      be one-helluva short-list in Murica, like Bernie, Elizabeth Warren, err… damn I’ve already run outta candidates!

      Texas Police Officers Give Down on Luck Dad Car Seats for 3 Young Daughters Instead of Tickets
      https://tribktla.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/texas-police-officer.jpg?w=241&h=300
      Two Texas police officers have received praise after they made a judgment call to buy car seats for a father instead of ticketing him during a recent traffic stop.
      On Saturday, Officer Justin Gower of the Cedar Park Police Department pulled over the truck because it apparently had expired registration and a malfunctioning light, according to local television station KVUE.

      As Gower spoke to the driver, he saw three little girls sitting in the back without car seats. He suddenly recalled hearing about the man from other law enforcement personnel, the station reported.

      Gower called another Cedar Park policeman, Officer Cale Hawkins, who had spoken with the father several weeks ago. Hawkins told the station they were living in a hotel at the time, according to the TV station.

      Recognizing the family was down on their luck, Gower and Hawkins decided to buy the girls — ages 1, 3 and 4 — car seats instead of ticketing the father.

      “Giving him three tickets, it wasn’t going to do any good,” Gower told KVUE. “Those kids were still going to have to be driven somewhere, somehow with no car seats.”

      Said Hawkins: “We just kind of stepped off to the side and said we need to kind of do the right thing and get these people some car seats.”

      Are you going to post a separate page for this ? That’s what it seemed like you were saying.

    Ha! the author has the same “respect” for the “national review” as I do! The idea, promoted by some that it was at some mythical time actually half-way respectable? I completely reject the idea as pure lunacy! Only in the eye of it’s own “faithful” was there ever anything but lunatic punditry and egotistical pseudo-intellectualism spewed from that hellish oriface! Shat-up I dare say from hell-itself! (it’s creator, in all his neo-feudal xristian arrogance)
