Had I been living under a rock somewhere, I would have thought that Larry Thornberry was writing some mis-begotten humor about purported utterances by Sen. John McCain about global warming, etc. But no, I haven’t been doing such a thing and have even heard those words as spoken by the good Senator and Republican nominee for POTUS. Perhaps Senator Obama is correct — McCain has “lost his marbles” or words to that extent.p>I sent in a contribution to McCain’s campaign a month or so ago. I wonder if there’s any way I can get it back. I’m REALLY beginning to worry at this point. br> — Jim Bjaloncik br> Stow, Ohio /p>
As a conservative who has mainly voted Republican throughout my life, I am finally quitting. Try as I have to hold my nose and support John McCain, I cannot. Currently, I agree with him only on abortion. The speech he gave on global warming, though, overrides even that.
My problem is that I believe in God. Therefore, I believe he created the earth, then plants and animals, then us. For years, I have thought it utter foolishness to believe man could destroy God’s creation. And, of course, I’m right. Man cannot destroy God’s creation.
However, an alarming array of evangelical pastors, the Pope, and supposedly “right-leaning” politicians have jumped on the environmental apocalypse bandwagon. It’s too much for me. Because of my faith in God, it really doesn’t matter who calls the White House home from January 2009 to 2013. It just doesn’t. There’s not enough difference among the three remaining contestants because each apparently, and mistakenly, believes man to be more powerful than God.p>So, it is goodbye, McCain 2008. I won’t be voting for Hillary or Obama, either. I’ll simply burn my voter’s registration card as a sign of protest against with arrogance and stupidity of the candidates we’ve been offered. br> — Kevin Cozort br> P.S. — And, don’t anyone pipe up with the ridiculous “Ron Paul is still running” malarkey. He’s as crazy as a road lizard in his belief that America should only defend itself if some foreign country’s army’s boot heels touch American soil. Paul is as out of the realm of reality as the three remaining viable candidates. Someone please tell him about intercontinental ballistic missiles and their ability to carry nuclear payloads. If there were a ballot with only two names, Ron Paul and Foghorn Leghorn, I’d throw the switch for Foghorn. He’s got, I say, he’s got twice as much on the ball as Mr. Paul! /p>
Since global temperatures have been increasing and decreasing over the years, it’s obvious that the current global crisis must be rethought in order to ensure that we address the true issues confronting our fragile planet, especially since our expert class has been unable to form a consensus about the problem that lasts more than a generation (in the 1970s, global cooling was the concern). Since both cooler and hotter temperatures have consequences, we must come up with a paradigm that encompasses all temperature trends and permits us to use the new paradigm to advance a free-market agenda, just as the Greens have used global warming to advance socialism.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
