And now it’s global COOLING

Either way, only Algore can save us. Please give him your money, your wives, and your daughters, if you care even a little about the planet, you selfish capitalist pig-dogs:

An expert from the National Autonomous University of Mexico predicted that in about ten years the Earth will enter a “little ice age” which will last from 60 to 80 years and may be caused by the decrease in solar activity….

Velasco Herrera described as erroneous predictions of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), pursuant to which the planet is experiencing a gradual increase in temperature, the so-called global warming. The models and forecasts of the IPCC “is incorrect because only are based on mathematical models and presented results at scenarios that do not include, for example, solar activity,” said the specialist also in image processing and signs and prevention of natural disasters.

Warming, cooling, the point is that CHANGE IS DOUBLE PLUS UNGOOD!!!

Is McCain in it to win it?

His VP selection will tell the story:

McCain has a golden opportunity to expose both Obama’s dark-heartedness and his lack of integrity by zeroing in on his abortion and infanticide record. But if McCain picks a pro-abortionist, he will forfeit his moral authority and political advantage on the issue and might very well be conceding the election to Obama.

Normally, you’d be sure that no Republican candidate for president would ever be crazy enough to select a pro-abortionchoice running mate. But now that Obama’s tendency towards auto-asphyxiation has been revealed, McCain may need to work harder if he’s going to tank the election. The worst possible choice of the names that have been floated, I think, would be Joe Lieberman, although the beetle-browed Tom Ridge would certainly be a close runner-up.

And the Lizard Queen lurks

The Obama campaign is sinking fast:

Megan’s Fourth Law of Politics: The party that starts looking for implausible and unprovable conspiracy theories about the opposition candidate is in trouble.

The “strange coincidence” of McCain’s cross-in-the-dirt story is not necessarily any such thing, it merely demonstrates the extreme unfamiliarity of Democrats with Christian history and the frequency with which atheist Communists have persecuted Christians over the last 100 years. Due to the long history of Christian persecution, which dates back to Imperial Rome, communication between Christians is believed to have long involved such non-verbal interactions; the famous fish symbol is said to have been used in such a way.

Sadly, there is little doubt that there are Christians in North Korean camps drawing crosses in the dirt even today. Not all Christians have the courage to speak out against evil rulers and accept martyrdom, but it’s not surprising that even the most fearful and compromised believer would take action to tell a suffering fellow Christian that he is not alone in his darkest hour.

Obama was already sliding in the polls and he has really looked terrible this week. If he continues to head south over the next month, expect whispers of a pro-Hillary uprising to start being floated in the press.

UPDATE – It certainly is no coincidence, as Solzhenitsyn never wrote any such story about his imprisonment, not in The Gulag Archipelago or anywhere else. I have little regard for Republicans, but leave it to a Democrat – and probably an atheist Democrat – to come up with such a stupid and easily debunked means of attacking someone.

The Ultimate Gamer

I’ve been thinking how it would be interesting to hold an Ultimate Gamer contest in which one would have to demonstrate a comprehensive mastery over a broad spectrum of computer games. Some scores would be based on time, others on score, still others on head-to-head play. Here’s my list of the ten games I’d use to determine the best gamer in such a contest:

1. Randomly selected text adventure (Zork, Enchanter, etc.)
2. Asteroids (arcade)
3. Pitfall (Atari 2600)
4. Super Mario Bros (NES)
5. Doom (deathmatch)
6. Warcraft II (random scenario)
7. Mortal Kombat II (best 2 of 3)
8. Total War: Medieval (score vs computer 100 years as England.)
9. Madden 2003 (score vs computer All-Madden).
10. Counterstrike – Source

I’d consider Ms Pac-man instead of Asteroids or HALO instead of Counterstrike… and I’m not the right guy to select the proper fighting game since I have a limited interest in that genre, but success across this range of games would certainly suffice to demonstrate genuine gaming skillz.
