Feeling better today, after feeling like crap all day yesterday. Maybe it was something I ate, but my throat and sinuses are much better today.

I'm super - thanks for asking!!


As of this writing, Hillary still has not conceded.

I was listening to a radio show last night that had a broadcast journalist in Israel. The journalist was saying that Hillary was basically a "circling vulture", waiting for some revelations about Obama to come out so she can swoop down and take the nomination.

What revelations might those be? Things like Michelle Obama's rant about "whitey taking our health care", Barack's close ties with Louis Farrakhan (it seems that several of Barack's campaign advisers are members of the Nation of Islam), and other potentially damning items.

I have no idea if ANY of it is true, but calling Hillary a "circling vulture" sure SOUNDS right.


Somehow, this comes as no surprise.


Wow, being pro-AGW is sure profitable, especially if you're Al Gore:

LONDON, June 4 (Reuters) - Generation Investment Management, an investor in green firms chaired by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, has bought a 9.6 percent stake in UK-listed Camco International Ltd (CAMIN.L: Quote, Profile, Research), Camco said on Wednesday.

The stake is worth around 6.4 million pounds ($12.59 million) at Camco's current price of 40 pence a share.

While Gore, a politician turned environmental activist chairs Generation Investment, David Blood, a former CEO of Goldman Sachs Asset Management, is managing partner of the firm, which was founded four years ago.

Camco identifies and develops greenhouse gas emission reduction projects. It also provides carbon and sustainable development consultancy services, including emissions assessment, carbon management and strategy and policy work, to companies and governments.

Camco's clients include the World Bank, the European Commission, Land Rover, BP and industrial, power and utilities companies throughout China and Russia.

Camco is valued at around 66 million pounds ($129.8 million).

D'you suppose he's in it for the money? He IS a politician, after all...


When it comes to gas prices, we have met the enemy and it is us. Evidently our pristine view is more important than affordable gasoline, heating oil, natural gas, and food.


Interesting op-ed in the Wall Street Journal about the Iraq war.


In London, cycling popularity has gone up. To make it easier for cyclists, they are trying a pilot program that will allow cyclists to go the wrong way up one-way streets.

But this wouldn't be London without the stupidity clause - if a cyclist is hit by a car, the motorist will face prosecution, NOT the bike rider.

This will end well.


Well, I have some things to do before heading into the world.

Be seeing you.

There's serious doubt as to the existence of the Michelle Obama 'Whitey' tape. Even Michelle Malkin is taking a 'I'll believe it when I see it' stand as of earlier this week. Link. Some of the Farrakhan rumors seem to be coming from the same place.

Bob, I also am taking the wait-and-see stance. According to the reporter I mentioned, there are people who supposedly were there when Michelle spouted off, but he mentioned no names. It may be true, it may not be true...but I wouldn't put it past Hillary to MAKE it true.

The link Bob put in isn't working - here it is, folks:"
