Mark Steyn Gives Credit Where It’s Due: by The Elephant's Child

Mark Steyn this morning in the Corner at National Review:

2010: The United States Government revokes Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s visa a mere 12 days after he tries to kill 300 people.

2002: The United States Government approves Mohammed Atta”s visa six months after he’s actually killed 3,000 people — and is , in fact, himself deceased.

If that’s not objective, measurable improvement in the U.S. Bureaucracy, I don’t know what is.  Like they say, the system worked!

Sometimes all that is left is laughter.  Here’s a British view of the subprime crisis, as only the Brits could explain it.

Market Meltdown Explained. by The Elephant's Child

It is always wise to consult more than one source. Experts will differ in their conclusions, and will express the problem differently, so listening to several experts will help your understanding.

Do you wonder what a community organizer organizes? by The Elephant's Child

Voters are curious about “community organizing”. Barack Obama has made quite a point of his earlier career in community organizing, but most people have no idea what an organizer actually organizes.
Iowa Hawk, a brilliant satirist, sums it up:

What do community organizers do?  As you know, Americans today are struggling with problems.  These problems include rising unemployment, energy cost, alienation, animosity, corporations and increased death.  Like no other time in our history, Americans are staring into an abyss of a hellhole of helplessness.  And this is where community organizers like me come in and provide solutions.  Specifically, America’s community organizers:

•reach out and work with comunities in various ways.
•liason with, and for, comunity agencies for service within affected areas.
•fight to make a difference.
•raise awareness.
•deal with community issues.
•when necessary, refer inquiries to outreach coordinators.
•help coordination agency administrators identify and address outreach opportunities.
•model timetables and conceptualize benchmarks.
•issue guidelines for poster contests and interpretive dance festivals.
•gather voter registrations, win valuable prizes.

More seriously, two articles visit Barack Obama’s community organizing from two sides of the aisle: one by John B. Judis from The New Republic, and another from National Review  by Byron York.  Read both articles for some insight into the presidential campaign. We offer links, you decide.

“Global Warming” My Big, Fat, Frozen Butt! by American Elephant

It’s the middle of April and it’s snowing in Seattle. Seattle is known for rain, not snow — and for good reason. I’ve lived here since I was a toddler and we never get more than a few sporadic inches, and never past early January.

It’s April for crying out loud!!! I’m cold! Would everyone please run their car engines, turn on all the lights, and perhaps burn some oily rags in the fireplace?! This “global warming” crap is taking far too long!

Oh, what’s that you say? The globe hasn’t warmed in ten years and this past year has been the coldest on record since 1900? The polar ice caps are growing and the computer models that are the basis for all the global warming alarmism have been proven to be junk that can’t predict today let alone the future?

Then could someone tell me why we’re even talking about so-called “global warming” anymore? And while you’re at it, could you pass me a blanket?

Update: In the interest of full disclosure, the above photograph is not Seattle (it may or may not be the cascades), nor, as I have been reminded, is my butt big and fat. I claim artistic license!
