The Week That Was

The Week: Jan.26 to Feb. 3, 2008

February 3, 2008

For those of you who may have been in a coma last week, here are the highlights from the all consuming world of power politics. If you’re as tired of politics as I am, feel free to scroll down to the good stuff.

The week started with Ted Kennedy dumping on Bill and Hill as he publicly endorsed Obama. This was followed by the National Organization of Women dumping on Teddy, saying “He’s joined the list of progressive white men who can’t or won’t handle the prospect of a woman president who is Hillary Clinton.” Meanwhile, John Edwards dropped out of the race, holding off endorsing Hillary or Obama, most likely waiting to be promised the VP slot. Obama has come closest, offering him the post Attorney General. Good grief.

Obama has picked up steam despite (or because of) the fact that National Journal ranked him as the most liberal senator of 2007. Oh, Obama also announced he would hold a summit with Muslims in order to repair America’s image in the world. This, as Islamic barbarians used two retarded women as suicide bombers.

The week’s news was consumed with Bill Clinton. It worked. Bill got more coverage than any of the Republican candidates. Oh, during the voting in the Florida Primary, a precinct in Broward County reported 110% voter turnout. Media silence ensued.

While the eyes of America were focused on political shenanigans, bureaucrats across the land made substantial gains in extending their power, at the expense of the American people.

Bureaucrats At Work:

Mississippi legislators introduced a bill that would make it illegal for restaurants to serve obese people. In Minneapolis, the vital question of banning elephant rides consumed the city. The City Council is getting ready to vote. Stay tuned.

In San Carlos, a man who reduced his waste to next to nothing, out of concern for the environment now faces a lawsuit from the city for canceling his trash service. And taking the cake: A Florida city decided to make gender ‘optional’ by banning discrimination based on “the inner sense of being a specific gender…with or without the individual’s designated sex at birth.” Lovely.

As we are in the process of winning the war in Iraq, Berkeley city council told Marines that “they are not welcome in the city” and if they stay, they do so as “unwelcome and uninvited intruders.” At least one patriot stood up: Sen. Jim DeMint (R.SC) said Berkeley no longer deserves federal money. My hero.

Hey, it could be worse. Across the pond in Britain, a debate is under way to give government money to surrogate mothers so they can have children for gays. Also in Britain, two public parks have been outfitted with speaking cameras that will boom out a warning at the first sign of any ‘anti-social behavior’.

Global Warming Update:

The UN reports that the crisis of global warming could cost the world up to $2 trillion buck over two decades, for cleaner energy sources. Finally, the real agenda is emerging.

This was followed up by Father Earth, AlGore, who is now claiming a ‘scriptural mandate’ on environmental issues. Now that God has been removed from the public square, the lefties are trying to use global warming as the new religion. Forget tithing, just buy carbon credits. Helping spread the message: Over 1,500 colleges are now holding green ‘teach-ins’.

Totally ignored was a new Senate report debunking the myth that global warming is causing polar bears to become extinct. It appears that the polar bear population is actually increasing. On a personal note: For those who have seen that picture of a poor polar bear apparently stranded on a melting ice floe, keep in mind, polar bears can swim up to 60 miles at a time. And glaciers have been melting for thousands of years.

Government Schools:

In a case that could end up before the Supreme Court, a judge has ruled that gay ‘exposure’ is OK for kindergartners, even if their parents object. The risky gay lifestyle is apparently OK for kids, but God forbid they should be remotely exposed to guns. That’s what another government school decided as a student was disciplined for bring to school a pen emblazoned with the Glock logo.

Higher Education?

San Jose State University (California, where else?) has decided to suspend all campus blood drives. The reason? It seems the FDA bars homosexuals from donating blood and the university thinks that’s just plain unfair to gays.

What is it with universities and sex? William and Mary College has given the students the OK to hold a sex worker’s ‘art show’ on campus. Let’s see, anything to do with sex is OK, but hosting a conservative speaker? Verboten. A ‘prestigious’ prep school made such a fuss about having Karl Rove as a commencement speaker that Rove finally cancelled.

If you think I’m joking about our universities obsession with sex over learning, all you have to do is read this brand new journal from UNC. It’s called The Journal of Genetic Rationalization and it claims that everything from over-spending to tardiness, to Christianity to inter-racial dating can be traced to ‘genes’. Whew, that means it’s not my fault. This is what passes for scientific inquiry in colleges these days.


In a fascinating breakthrough that is sending shivers of delight down the spines of feminists, British scientists have discovered how to turn a woman’s bone marrow into sperm. This could make men moot.

In another breakthrough, scientists have discovered a way to reverse loss of memory. They’ve also discovered that a genetic mutation that took place 6-10,000 years ago is the cause of the eye color blue. Meaning all blue-eyed people have a single, common ancestor.

Lesser advances include the creation of a ‘tear-free’ onion and the discovery of a strange creature that is totally immune to pain. This could have fascinating ramifications for pain management. I hope they finish their studies quickly, just in case Hillary gets elected. Speaking of Hillary, another medical advance has found that cow poo helps reduce the chances of developing lung cancer. Really.

In keeping with my desire to leave you with a smile on your face:

A mini-van full of illegals rear-ended a Homeland Security vehicle on I-10. Talk about a bad hair day…And from the ‘waxy, yellow, build-up’ files: a youngster who had been partially deaf for 10 years suddenly regained his hearing when a thick piece of cotton popped out of his ear. He can hear you now.

And that was the week that was.
