On the Assertion that Opera Was the Rap of Yesterday

I much prefer to think that disco was the rap of yesterday.

On Karl Rove Now Writing Editorials For the War Street, Err, I Mean, Wall Street, Journal

I'll take, "Yet Another Embarrassment/Dagger in the Heart of a Once Proud and Well-Respected Publication", for a thousand, Alex.

On Bill O'Reilly Making Hay Over the Fact that Today's Marijuana is Significantly Stronger than the Stuff From 30 to 40 Years Ago Was

It's like, "Yeah, Bill, and that's why people are only taking one or two hits these days as opposed to smoking an entire joint."......My God, do we have to explain everything to this fellow?

On the International Energy Agency's Emission Reduction Proposal Which Only Reduces the Percentage of People on the Planet Who Don't Have Electricity by 14%

I'm going to take a wild guess here and say that nobody on that committee resides in the developing world, and that they all undoubtedly piss their pants whenever there's so much as a five minute blackout....Fucking assholes.

On the UK's Goal of Reducing it's Greenhouse Gas Emission by 80% by the Year, 2050

This would necessitate that they reduce their metric tons of carbon dioxide per $1,000 of GDP from .42 to .03 AND accelerate their decarbonization rate (as observed from 1980 to 2008) by upwards of 4-fold. Does anybody with so much as a brain-stem truly believe that this is possible?...THESE ENVIRONMENTALISTS ARE WACKY, PEOPLE!!...........................................................................................P.S. And it also must be stated that the observed decarbonization that did occur occurred primarily due to deindustrialization (which I gather that the Brits do not want more of) and a one-time switch from coal to gas (which will be difficult to replicate and which could only occur via nuclear and/or hydro AND LOTS OF IT). To say that even this level of decarbonization (on into the future) is a given is itself dicey.

On the Joel Osteen Sirius XM Radio Show

Oh yeah, I'm going to dish out my hard-earned money so that I can listen to this Bible-thumping idiot pontificate (that, and the fact that he's already worth over 50 million) - I don't think so!! I would rather listen to wasps buzzing around my head.
