Let me just say that personally, I went towards CFL years ago and, more recently, LED lighting, especially the ones mimicking the old Edison filament bulbs.

It seemed a no brainer to me to choose not to bring the excess heat into my home only to pay PG&E to run my A/C to take it back out.

Oh, and a big thanks for the very public forfeit from Steve Frisch, the six figure CEO of the wretchedly misnamed Sierra Business Council (it isn't a council of businesses) and the unknown sock Weezer (30 Quatloos say he's Michael P. Anderson). Thanks for playing, guys.

Another narrative fail for the socialist dems and the clown car -

"As our aircrews serve on these international airlift missions, they follow strict guidelines on contracting for hotel accommodations and all expenditures of taxpayer dollars," Brig Gen Edward Thomas wrote. "In this case, they made reservations through the Defense Travel System and used the closest available and least expensive accommodations to the airfield within the crews' allowable hotel rates."
The routine airlift mission was on a C-17 shared by the Air Force and the Alaska Air National Guard at the Anchorage base. The crew on this flight consisted of seven active-duty Air Force and Alaska Air National Guard members.

The flight took off from Anchorage on March 13, making stops at bases in Nevada and New Hampshire before going to Glasgow Prestwick Airport and eventually Ali Al Salem base in Kuwait. The crew was back in Alaska on March 19.

A local government contractor made the Scotland reservations, and indicated there was not a room closer to the airport than the Trump resort, 54 miles away, Thomas said.

That, Thomas said, was not a remarkable distance to travel to receive the government rate for the rooms.
He said the Trump resort had rooms for $136 a night, cheaper than a Marriott, which charged $161 a night. However, he said both are under the per diem rate of $166.

Crickets. Not a single comment. Silence speaks volumes. You own this. You can pretend no one takes notice, but we do and we don't forget.

George Rebane

Re JeffGale 1217pm - anyone know who this sack head is and what he is talking about?

Gregory

Frisch quoting Wiggy Jiggly at 852am
"If there is any weight behind your belief, George and Russ will step in and corroborate your connection between global climate science and your Truckee snow patch with papers. My guess is you will hear crickets as they leave you high and dry to rot. If they do corroborate we might consider the validity of your observations, if they don't, I guess they and we believe you are full of shit. Absent validation, the RR crowd will be mollified to be associated with the likes of you and Todd."

I put that off to the side for the more pressing thinking at hand, but it finally came into focus. That's the "appeal to purity" fallacy. Or the "no true Scotsman" argument. If my heart was pure, I'd be front and center whipping Todd and Walt for their errors in thought and expression. Since I don't (at least to their satisfaction), my motives are impure. Evil.

Well, I do on occasion give a few lashes to Walt, Todd and just about here, even the host. Most of the time I even hold my tongue (well, my fingers) on the grammatical and spelling errors that are more rampant with some than others. But if you want to hand out lashes to the folks here, I'm not stopping you but wear your big boy pants when you do, Steve, because as a bona fide college grad I expect more from you (but never surprised when it isn't forthcoming).

The flag battle to heat up in Massachusetts.

“How scary can you get? As always, the debate over a flag’s symbolism allows liberals to ride their favorite hobbyhorses:

“Regardless, he said, his view is that a sword seems inappropriate in this day and age.

“Should we be putting a weapon in the state seal?” [the chairman of the Massachusetts Historical Commission] asked. “Given the violence in this country, no one would suggest we put a gun in someone’s hand,” even in an illustration.

“And, of course, attacking the flag means attacking American history, an important part of the Left’s project:

“Next year marks the 400th anniversary of the [Mayflower’s] arrival. The meaning of that event has undergone significant revisions over time, morphing from a comforting tale of new arrivals and native people peacefully coexisting into one of land grabs, enslavement, rape and genocide.

“Land grabs, enslavement, rape and genocide.” That is the New York Times version of American history. The Left seeks to impose it on all of us.”

JGCB @12;17 What on Earth is that about? Meanwhile, way back at 8:38 Jiggs gives us a prime example of scientific illiteracy. Since both plankton and coral are shorthand for large groups of related animals, perhaps you identify the process by which they supposedly convert CO2 into O2. Perhaps you had algae in mind?

Don Bessee

Its the economy stupid! No matter how much the socialist dems try to talk us into a recession the real world keeps on keeping on. -

The new jobs report is in and the verdict is clear — no one should believe a single word the Democrats say about the economy.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the number of people employed in August increased by a very impressive 590,000, pushing total employment to a record-high of nearly 157.9 million. The percentage of the population that was employed rose to 60.9 percent, the highest percentage since December 2008.

As a result, despite over 570,000 people joining the labor force, the unemployment rate held at 3.7 percent, near a 50-year low. Unemployment among African Americans and Hispanics also hit all-time lows last month, proving that the ongoing economic boom is still creating unprecedented opportunity for all U.S. workers.

They got fooled again -

Yet another greenie expedition to the Arctic to raise awareness of ‘global warming’ has been scuppered by unexpected large quantities of ice. This brings to a total of six the number of Ship of Fools expeditions where weather reality has made a mockery of climate theory.

According to Maritime Bulletin:
Arctic tours ship MS MALMO with 16 passengers on board got stuck in ice on Sep 3 off Longyearbyen, Svalbard Archipelago, halfway between Norway and North Pole. The ship is on Arctic tour with Climate Change documentary film team, and tourists, concerned with Climate Change and melting Arctic ice. All 16 Climate Change warriors were evacuated by helicopter in challenging conditions, all are safe. 7 crew remains on board, waiting for Coast Guard ship assistance.
The reporter, Erofey Schkvarkin clearly has a sense of humour. He adds:

Something is very wrong with Arctic ice, instead of melting as ordered by UN/IPCC, it captured the ship with Climate Change Warriors.

Trigger time! No saying anything semi-nice about Margaret Thatcher.

“Other Twitter users were quick to bring out the Hitler comparisons because Thatcher was apparently just like the leader of the Third Reich. Or something.

"Gillian Anderson playing Thatcher is like Tom Hanks playing Hitler! Sure, they would do a great job, but it just feels wrong!!" said one user.

"Watching straight dudes and lesbians ponder how the s*** they’re ever going to knock out a successful wank to Gillian Anderson when she’s playing a literal f***ing monster is my new favourite kind of Twitter," said another user.

"So Gillian Anderson is 'falling in love with the icon' Just Jesus Christ. Thatcher was a monster and war criminal who supported death squads in Northern Ireland, pandered to racism, and systematically persecuted the poor and working class of the UK," said another.”

Meanwhile, the conservatives took it all in stride.

Sajak tweeted: "I, like so many others, truly dislike ketchup on hotdogs, and I prefer not to be around anyone who uses ketchup on hotdogs. I call upon all hotdog stands to post a list of those who ask for ketchup on their hotdogs."

"I woke up feeling virtuous this morning. I think I’ll find something to boycott and then tweet about it. Never let it be said I’m not doing my part. #LookAtMe."

“This could be worse. It could be a dinner party and I could be there."

“Nobody abhors violence more than Hollywood, and nobody does more to glorify it.”

“I wonder if the celebrities who moved out of the country will return for the demonstrations?”

“Unhappy about results of last week's People's Choice Awards. Thinking of breaking Starbucks windows & trashing limos.”

“Changing the world one screamed obscenity at a time.”

"Alexa, turn on CNN. I want to hear the news." ""You'll have to pick one or the other."

Regarding the Weez's rant, I found the charge that I'd recently morphed into a climate scientist (tm) recently particularly interesting.

Michael Mann, in a letter to our own Tea Party Gazette, identified the wretchedly misnamed "Skeptical Science" blog as being "scientist run"... and the lone science degree held by the proprietor of it, John Cook, remains... a BS in Physics.

George Rebane and I both have a BS in Physics from schools of equal or greater stature to the University of Queensland, and I started reading the climate literature 12 years ago.

Cook took his degree and followed RL Crabb's path to being a cartoonist, just not as well.

Daily Quotes:

For the record: “We’re going to kill a lot of poor people in Africa so rich Americans can feel good about their environmentalism. The mining for precious metals for our electric cars, etc. will end badly, but rich progressives will sleep well at night.” —Erick Erickson

Upright: “Climate change is not the hoax that some claim it is. But to the extent that it’s a crisis, people like Sanders, Cortez and Warren want to use it as an excuse to radically transform the American economy and political system along lines that have less to do with climate change and much to do with their ideological animosity to the status quo. And when the fight against climate change conflicts with their fight for ‘social justice,’ it’s climate change that takes a backseat.” —Jonah Goldberg

What could possibly go wrong? “On my first day as president, I will sign an executive order that puts a total moratorium on all new fossil fuel leases for drilling offshore and on public lands. And I will ban fracking — everywhere.” —Sen. Elizabeth Warren

Demo-gogues: “What I know is this: We cannot have assault weapons in our society. We’ve seen the devastating impact. They need to be banned. And that means by definition you don’t leave millions and millions of them out there. The buyback’s the obvious approach. How we deal with someone who doesn’t want to participate in the buyback, that’s something we’ll have to resolve going forward.” —New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio

Race bait: “Black athletes have attracted money and attention to the predominantly white universities that showcase them.” —The Atlantic’s Jemele Hill, whose headline lectures, “It’s Time for Black Athletes to Leave White Colleges”

Triggered much? “Crickets. Not a single comment. Silence speaks volumes. You own this. You can pretend no one takes notice, but we do and we don't forget.”—-Angry White Guy

Amazing lack of self-awareness, part I: “A society is judged based on how it treats children. This Administration will be judged harshly.” —Sen. Kamala Harris, who supports the slaughter of millions of in-utero babies

Amazing lack of self-awareness, part II: “The size of your body doesn’t define your worth.” —Planned Parenthood

The BIG lie: “I don’t get wrong things like, we should lock kids up in cages at the border.” —Joe Biden, whose administration devised said cages

And last… “Notice that Walmart still plans to sell the remainder of its AR-15 ammunition. This couldn’t really be about saving lives, obviously. It’s about the money. It’s only about the money.” —Tucker Carlson & Neil Patel

A boy who gave up the money he was saving for a trip to Disney World to feed evacuees from Hurricane Dorian received a surprise Disney trip on Sunday for his selfless actions.

While Jermaine Bell was celebrating his seventh birthday, cast members from Walt Disney World and Mickey Mouse showed up at his house to surprise him by telling the now-seven-year-old boy he would be going on a VIP getaway to Disney with his family later in the month.

A video of the surprise showed the cast members singing “Happy Birthday” and carrying mouse-shaped balloons outside his home.

Quora huh……..it figures.



"It has been four long winters since the federal government, in the hulking, shaven-skulled, Alien Nation-esque form of then-Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, committed $700 billion in taxpayer money to rescue Wall Street from its own chicanery and greed. To listen to the bankers and their allies in Washington tell it, you’d think the bailout was the best thing to hit the American economy since the invention of the assembly line. Not only did it prevent another Great Depression, we’ve been told, but the money has all been paid back, and the government even made a profit. No harm, no foul – right?

Wrong.

It was all a lie – one of the biggest and most elaborate falsehoods ever sold to the American people. We were told that the taxpayer was stepping in – only temporarily, mind you – to prop up the economy and save the world from financial catastrophe. What we actually ended up doing was the exact opposite: committing American taxpayers to permanent, blind support of an ungovernable, unregulatable, hyperconcentrated new financial system that exacerbates the greed and inequality that caused the crash, and forces Wall Street banks like Goldman Sachs and Citigroup to increase risk rather than reduce it. The result is one of those deals where one wrong decision early on blossoms into a lush nightmare of unintended consequences. We thought we were just letting a friend crash at the house for a few days; we ended up with a family of hillbillies who moved in forever, sleeping nine to a bed and building a meth lab on the front lawn."


Like I said…..your a Republican now……endorsing endless free money for corporations! Wear it!

It would have been unparalleled theater if Trump had come out with a "peace deal" with the Taliban on the anniversary of 9-11 as he clearly wanted to. I can just see him standing there at Camp David with Akhundzada smiling and shaking hands.

Yes lets start the campaign with a laundry list of fake statements, stationed in North Korea and Iran NOT!

The former operative was never stationed in Iran or North Korea, for example. And her recounting of what became known as "PlameGate" was missing some seemingly key details.

"Dick Cheney’s chief of staff took revenge against my husband and leaked my identity," Plame states. "His name? Scooter Libby. Guess who pardoned him last year?”

However, former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage said in 2006 that he was the one who revealed Plame's identity to journalist Robert Novak, not Libby. Plame alleged that the leak came because Bush officials wanted to punish her husband, former diplomat Joe Wilson, for opposing the Iraq War.

DERSHOWITZ: PLAME KNEW EXACTLY WHAT SHE WAS TWEETING

"Dear Valerie Plame: Scooter Libby didn’t reveal your identity, Richard Armitage did," Matt Schlapp, the chairman of the American Conservative Union and a Fox News contributor, said on Twitter. "Starting your campaign w this inaccuracy is, well, revealing."

Stomping on your own candidates because you have TDS -

From June 1 through August 31, MRC analysts found the networks devoted 838 minutes of airtime — nearly 14 hours — to coverage of President Trump personally, the vast majority of which was negative. (Note: This report only examines coverage of Trump himself, not generic stories about his administration’s activities or those of other top-ranking officials, which accounted for an additional 213 minutes of evening news airtime.)

The airtime devoted to Trump was eleven times greater than that spent on the leading Democratic candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden (just under 74 minutes), and vastly more than the networks gave California Senator Kamala Harris (30 minutes), South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (15 minutes) or Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren (just under 14 minutes).

Overall, 21 Democratic candidates (including some who have since departed the race) shared 187 minutes of evening news airtime this summer, less than one-fourth of that of Trump alone. On the GOP side, former Congressman Joe Walsh received a scant 35 seconds of coverage after he announced his candidacy in late August, while the campaign of former Massachusetts Governor William Weld has yet to be acknowledged by any of the three evening newscasts.

See Todd……the admission that importing the third world is just the way progressivism is going to "stack the electoral deck". At least Frisch admits it. It does give lie to the fact that Steve is an environmentalist. Importing millions of lower resource consuming and polluting third worlders to the bounty is America is going to make for a shitload more CO2 spewed into the atmosphere!

Bill Tozer

Listen to the children....or maybe not.

“In short, the young rely on galaxies of goodies beyond count, whose production requires resources, nature-altering infrastructure, and dependable energy systems. The latest environmental crusades—whether banning fracking or plastic straws—are as gossamer bubbles atop this rushing torrent of manufactured consumables.
The children’s crusade for gun control is another alleged example of the purity of spirit of the young. But anti-gun youth crusaders are prepared to give up guns because, in almost all cases, they have none. Similarly, student protesters—whom we are supposed to admire for heroically skipping classes to agitate around their latest grievance—place little value on those classes and suffer no consequences for missing them.
An awareness of one’s own consumption and an attempt to conserve and to eliminate waste are worthy practices. But so is a zeal-tempering humility that should deflate any moral righteousness around such marginal efforts and that recognizes the fantastically un-natural prosperity—the product of Western capitalist enterprise and the rule of law—that underwrites environmental playacting.”

BTW Don, you do know that the Camp David Accords were between Rabin and Anwar Sadat, not Rabin/Sadat/Arafat right?

Trump kicked it good in NC tonight. Fills those stadiums and arenas. Amazing.

I recall Clinton grabbing the Israeli PM and Yasser the Killers's arms and forcing them to shake. Where was that again?

The negotiations, which took place over the previous 6 months in Oslo, culminated in a meeting to sign the Oslo Accord (by Perez and Abboud) on the White House lawn.

Peace deals take some time I guess. You don't just through them together at the last minute.

Oh, and although the deal was signed by Perez and Abboud it was on behalf of Rabin and Arafat, who shook on it at the signing.

Ahh yes, and what would Jesus say you fucking "Christians"?

I hate this guy. More than anyone I've ever known. He does not represent me in any way shape or form.

You need to work on those Daddy Issues, Jiggles. Next thing you know you will be dropping the n word again. Breathe, little one, breathe.

The Bahamas looked like Trump dropped a nuke in the middle of that hurricane. It worked. Immediately downgraded to a CAT 2 and then CT 1 when it hit the US. That Trump is awesome.

Feel Good Story of the Week (and it’s only Monday):

NYT Columnist Discloses “Insomnia” She’s Had Since “Cursed Night” of Trump’s Election

New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg indicated on Friday that President Trump’s election was so upsetting that it gave her years of insomnia. That tidbit came in a column about Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg making what she calls a “thrilling prediction” that 2020 will see a “blue wave” that will “crash and shatter the Republican Party.”

“His confidence will not be enough to lessen the insomnia that has plagued me since the cursed night when Trump was elected,” Goldberg wrote.

Only in that tight little circle of Proggys (in a back room somewhere,,, Tahoe?) does anyone know the "real" you.

Valerie Plume commercial:

“Dick Cheney’s chief of staff took revenge against my husband and leaked my identity," Plame states. "His name? Scooter Libby. Guess who pardoned him last year?”

However, former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage said in 2006 that he was the one who revealed Plame's identity to journalist Robert Novak, not Libby. Plame alleged that the leak came because Bush officials wanted to punish her husband, former diplomat Joe Wilson, for opposing the Iraq War.

"Dear Valerie Plame: Scooter Libby didn’t reveal your identity, Richard Armitage did," Matt Schlapp, the chairman of the American Conservative Union and a Fox News contributor, said on Twitter. "Starting your campaign w this inaccuracy is, well, revealing."

Schlapp added: "Scooter went to prison [because] Republicans always agree to special counsels who never prosecute the wrongdoing but do set perjury traps. Democrat administrations are smarter."
—————————————————
Pay no attention to Plame’s anti-Semitic tweets. She is a Dem, after all.

“This was not the first time Plame retweeted Giraldi’s garbage. In 2014 she retweeted one of his screeds with the following notation: “Well put.” And after retweeting the current anti-Semitic article she described it as: “Yes, very provocative, but thoughtful. Many neocon hawks ARE Jewish. Ugh.”

“Nor is this the only time that Plame has retweeted other nonsense from the bigoted platform this piece came from – a platform of which she has pleaded ignorance. According to journalist Yashar Ali, Plame has retweeted at least eight other articles from the same website since 2014. Sounds like she is into some strange websites.

“I actually read the Philip Giraldi article – before I was aware of the Plame tweet – on a neo-Nazi website, where Giraldi’s articles are frequently featured. That’s where his articles belong – on overtly anti-Semitic sites.

“For Plame to claim that she was unaware of the anti-Semitic content of Giraldi’s article is to ignore reality. Plame had to be aware, since she was aware of Giraldi’s bigotry. Her apologies ring hollow.

“Plame’s true feelings were revealed in what she said before she realized that she would be widely condemned for her original retweet. She must now do more than apologize.

“The former CIA operative must explain how she came upon the article. Who sent it to her? Does she regularly read bigoted website? Why is she reading and retweeting a known anti-Semite? What are her own personal views regarding the content of the Giraldi’s article?”

Frisch @ 4:37 The proposal is that we tax the energy companies for 'their' emissions and give a portion of the swag (less govt overhead) to the people who actually do the emitting, while burning the products willingly purchased. No surprise consuming folks would go for this, particularly younger people.

A reasonable person would suppose that GOPers would be better at detecting outright fraud schemes and cons than the average progressive/collectivist, but evidence for that is sorely lacking.

Something to consider: The Earth is home to some million billion (that's 10^15 for George and Gregory) termites. Not only do they outnumber us by 100,000 to 1, they also outweigh us collectively by more than 5 to 1. Some scientists believe there as many as 1500lbs of termites for every human. But wait!

In the course of doing their assigned duty of disposing of cellulose, they emit 8-10 times the CO2 produced by all the fossil fuel combustion of the entire human population.

Might be easier to eliminate 12-1/2% of these little beggars than to reinvent civilization.

What does 1500# of naked termites look like? Think Jeffa the Hutt.

'''Separations

Total separations includes quits, layoffs and discharges, and other separations. Total separations is
referred to as turnover. Quits are generally voluntary separations initiated by the employee. Therefore,
the quits rate can serve as a measure of workers’ willingness or ability to leave jobs. Layoffs and
discharges are involuntary separations initiated by the employer. Other separations includes separations
due to retirement, death, disability, and transfers to other locations of the same firm.

The number of total separations rose to 5.8 million (+246,000) in July. The total separations rate was
3.8 percent. The number of total separations increased for total private (+245,000) and was little
changed for government. The total separations level increased in professional and business services
(+98,000), transportation, warehousing, and utilities (+42,000), and information (+21,000). The number
of total separations increased in the West region. (See table 3.)

The number of quits edged up to a series high in July of 3.6 million (+130,000). The quits rate was 2.4
percent. The quits level edged up for total private (+127,000) and was little changed for government.
Quits increased in health care and social assistance (+54,000) and in federal government (+3,000). The
number of quits rose in the Midwest region. (See table 4.)

The number of layoffs and discharges was little changed in July at 1.8 million. The layoffs and
discharges rate was 1.2 percent. The layoffs and discharges level was little changed for total private and
for government. The number of layoffs and discharges increased in information (+20,000). The layoffs
and discharges level increased in the West region. (See table 5.)

The number of other separations was little changed in July. The other separations level was also little
changed for total private and for government. Other separations decreased in accommodation and food
services (-13,000) but increased in transportation, warehousing, and utilities (+11,000). The number of
other separations was little changed in all four regions. (See table 6.)''' - Dept. of Labor July 2019

Todd Juvinall

To you trolls here that hate Trump. Obviously, you have never made decisions in your life other than maybe your food and where to crap. Trump has the absolute right to hire and fire as has every other President. Sometimes you hire someone with a contra POV so you can hear all the arguments. That is life.

Bill Tozer

Oh, there goes Jiggles again. One can only comment on Bolton. Nothing else. He demands it to be. This is the Sandbox where one can comment on anything, including the unemployed Colin Kap. Control freaks do not like that one bit.

I remember Bolton’s successful work in the administration of the first President Bush to overturn the UN’s vile “Zionism is a form of racism” resolution. (See pages 40-43 of his memoir, Surrender Is Not an Option.) I remember the Democrats’ remorseless campaign of defamation against him to prevent his confirmation as our ambassador to the United Nations upon his appointment by the second President Bush. I remember his stalwart representation of the United States at the United Nations following his recess appointment by the second President Bush. I remember the NYT full assault against Bolton. Like him or not, Bolton is a true patriot.

Rand Paul to receive justice.

“Yesterday the Sixth Circuit vacated Boucher’s sentence and returned the case to the district court for resentencing. Here is the introductory paragraph of the Sixth Circuit opinion (embedded below):

“Senator Rand Paul was mowing his lawn when he stopped to gather a few limbs in his path. Without warning, Rene Boucher—Paul’s next-door neighbor, whom he had not spoken with in years—raced toward Paul and attacked him from behind. The impact broke six of Paul’s ribs, caused long-lasting damage to his lung, and led to several bouts of pneumonia. Boucher later pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 351(e). Although his Guidelines sentencing range was 21 to 27 months in prison, the district court sentenced him to 30 days’ imprisonment. On appeal, the Government argues that Boucher’s sentence was substantively unreasonable. We agree and therefore VACATE his sentence and REMAND for resentencing.”
