Hurricane Sandy – the real threat to US national security is ‘us’

The fool's summary of what happened with Hurricane Sandy can be found in a scientifically infantile editorial today of the Denver Post where we, the general public, are all encouraged to be aware of the weather outside. OPINION Editorial: What Sandy can teach us in Colorado Though our own stormy season winter seems distant, now is the time to prepare for nature's fury. The cowardly business folk at the Denver Post don't want us talking about climate change and our corporate leaders' part in screwing up Nature with their worship of consumerism and capitalism and US militarism.   Now on towards Did Climate Change Cause Hurricane Sandy? ...(Scientific American). Of course it did.... partially. But a big PARTIALLY at that.

Dear President Tar Baby…

Does anyone know if Rep. Lamborn really sent an apology to President Obama for calling him a Tar Baby? Has anyone seen it? Lamborn's office issued a press release saying "the congressman is confident that the President will accept his heartfelt apology." News headlines regurgitated the story sight unseen. The Denver Post quoted Lamborn: "I am sure that he will not take offense and he'll be happy to accept my apology because he is a man of character.   How do we know an apology was sent? Because Lamborn says so? That dork told us Obama was a Tar Baby, luckily someone showed skepticism about that. This reminds me of the old gag about the man who returns to his parked car to find a note on the windshield: "Sorry I dented your car. I'm writing you this note so people will think I'm leaving my contact info, but I'm not." 26879

TASER YO MOMMA!!

So there was a recent Letter To The Editor of the Denver Post pissing and moaning about the Denver cops being sued just because they killed a guy with their tasers. "Stop being such crybabies, sure they killed him so what? They obviously didn't intend to kill him because they used tasers instead of guns to do it!" So, a matter of degree in HOW lethal a Deadly Weapon is? Taser deaths have steadily climbed. There were two Colorado Springs robberies I can immediately recall using tasers, both carried the "charge" (little electric joke) of Armed Robbery WITH A DEADLY WEAPON. If it's good enough for the cops to call tasers a deadly weapon in one context, why not consider it likely to be a deadly weapon in others? Audie Murphy was shot a few times, by people carrying military grade firearms (cause they were in an Army) but didn't die from the wounds. 26289

Ex RMN columnists stuck to their guns

DENVER- Considering the villainous role the Rocky Mountain News played in the vilification of Ward Churchill, their insinuations having been thoroughly discredited in this trial, you'd think the RMN columnists now writing for the Denver Post would be self-conscious about taking the same mocking stance. But they are not. Attorney David Lane chats with them most amicably, but still they file the typical anti-academic hit pieces. Columnist Vincent Carroll summarized Churchill's recent testimony as: Ward's world of brazen claims. 7144

Churchill and his curiously vile detractors

DENVER- There's an interesting sideshow at the Churchill v CU case having to do with a cadre of unsavory Ward Churchill online critics. What they are writing is hardly interesting but their unceasing doggedness, repeating only ad hominem attacks, leads one to wonder who they are and what horse do they have, in not only this race, but in Churchill's ongoing activism. These are the same voices which heckled the DNC organizers, AIM, and the contra-Columbus actions. 7125
