"Why did they destroy our world?"

It has become very hard for me recently to ignore the issue of climate change. I have concluded that there is no subject more important. It trumps every other issue. No other issue even comes close in its importance.

The entire world must unite for the first time. No longer can individuals or individual nations pursue a path that threatens the survival of the biosphere. Waiting until it is too late is not an option. The possibility of run away climate changes, similar to the period known as the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) is to risk the possibility of a planet-altering period the likes of which will change the evolutionary path of our species.
Recent data from the Grace Gravity Recover and Climate Experiment indicate that we have in the lost roughly 2 trillion tons of global ice since 2003. The world should be united in its alarm. Instead, we talk about our own self-interests. We fiddle while Rome burns.

What will it take to wake up the human family to recognize the greatest threat to their continued existence? Will what is left of our species have to wait thousands of years in artificially created biospheres for the healing of our planet? Our children of the future are right now asking the question, "Why did they destroy our world?"

Karl Rove (His Dickipedia Biography)

Karl Christian Rove (born December 25, 1950) is a former Deputy Chief of Staff to President George W. Bush, a Republican political/campaign consultant, a turd blossom, "the brain," a Fox News political "analyst" and contributor, and a dick.

Rove is considered a part of the holy trinity of dicks (himself, Dick Cheney, George W. Bush), though the true extent of his role in the ruining of the United States will most likely forever be obscured by "executive privilege," which is a time-honored technique of avoiding culpability for anything while "protecting America."

Rove is only 57 years old. One can expect that this will leave Rove plenty of years to continue his life's work of undoing everything the founding fathers did to prevent people like him from existing in the first place. Read entire Dickipedia entry here.

Workers Occupy an American Factory

Finally the workers of the United States have awakened!

Chicago factory occupied

Lee Sustar reports from Chicago on an occupation by workers who want what's theirs from management and the Bank of America.

December 6, 2008

WORKERS OCCUPYING the Republic Windows & Doors factory slated for closure are vowing to remain in the Chicago plant until they win the $1.5 million in severance and vacation pay owed them by management.

In a tactic rarely used in the U.S. since the labor struggles of the 1930s, the workers, members of United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America (UE) Local 1110, refused to leave the plant on December 5, its last scheduled day of operation. Read entire article here.

NetRightNation Assults the Nation's Bloggers

Below is an e-mail I received today from NetRightNation and my response:

Adam,

Oh – in case no one has told you yet, (I am sure more will) – this won’t work – it’s not the medium and its delivery system that you need – maybe you should try some new ideas that appeal to someone besides rich conservative brainwashed white people. You represent a 20th Century party in a 21st Century world.

LS Butts

P.S. Perhaps you could get Karl Rove to work on your new approach – he was so good at building your permanent Republican majority!
