I can’t stand babies. I go to this site every day to see cute animals, not some slobber faced brat.

I’d take the “ugliest” (I think even the ugly ones are cute in their own comical way) animal or insect over the cutest baby any day. Yeah, the babies cute, but human babies all do the same stuff. Animals are more unique and interesting, but that’s just me. I’m not hatin’ on the baby, but would rather have seen a praying mantis or rat or something. I have to see baby’s all day long and get dirty looks when I don’t melt and coo over them. Plus what’s ironic is that in a few years that kids parents will probably feed in lamb…. how wrong is that?

The post was 450 comments long, and fortunately most of comments were from people mocking the baby haters. It was surprising to see how much a photo of a baby human could elicit such a rabid response. Made me curious, too. I know that biologically speaking, we’re designed to have an emotional, positive response when we see children. That’s right, cute serves a purpose. It helps parents (especially mothers) to instinctively want to protect their young.

It isn’t as if these people don’t exhibit this reaction at all, they are on a site dedicated to photos of baby animals. It is just human babies that get them jazzed up.

On President Obama’s Bow to the Japanese Emperor. . .

November16

“Obama’s handshake/forward lurch was so jarring and inappropriate it recalls Bush’s back-rub of Merkel.

“Kyodo News is running his appropriate and reciprocated nod and shake with the Empress, certainly to show the president as dignified, and not in the form of a first year English teacher trying to impress with Karate Kid-level knowledge of Japanese customs.

Obama to Cede U.S. Sovereignty in the name of Global Warming?

October24

From the blog Fighting Words:

The Minnesota Free Market Institute hosted an event at Bethel University in St. Paul on Wednesday evening. Keynote speaker Lord Christopher Monckton, former science adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, gave a scathing and lengthy presentation, complete with detailed charts, graphs, facts, and figures which culminated in the utter decimation of both the pop culture concept of global warming and the credible threat of any significant anthropomorphic climate change.

Walter has much of his speach transcribed, as well as a portion of Lord Monckton’s question/ answer session. No matter which global warming theory you subscribe to, it is well worth the read, though I do wish we could see his entire presentation. Keep checking his site for more updates should the rest of the presentation become available.

As is so often the case, the most important issues are usually the ones that receive the smallest amount of attention.

Just a reminder…

October19

Remember this? Remember the assurances that the promise would be kept? Yup. Still no CSPAN coverage.

Maybe he’s not that interested in hearing what the American People think after all.
