Whass up?!

Lets start with a very funny caricature on Al Gore - the guru of Global Warming swindle. If you don't laugh your butt off when you look at it - your heart is made of stone.

Iceland Voters Set to Reject Debt Deal
NYT reports that people of Iceland are going to vote down the proposal to pay the debt of a private bank Icesave. Of course, the world community is outraged - given that some of the customers of that bank are citizens of Netherlands and United Kingdom. To make matters worse (or more comical if you wish), the Dutch and British governments have already "reimbursed" their citizens the losses in Icesave and are now awaiting the people of Iceland to pay them back. Majority of people in Iceland though do not understand why they should be held responsible for the screw up of a private bank, and the political elites are running scared.

Silja B. Omarsdottir, a political "scientist" at the University of Iceland asks a question: “Are we going to be a country that takes our obligations seriously?" This immature question is answered by Birgitta Jonsdottir, a member of Parliament “We don’t believe in the socialization of private debt.” Or, if I were to use the line from an old joke - "what do you mean "our", paleface"?

Environmental lawsuits - nothing personal, strictly business
Pajamas media reports that "Activist ‘Green’ Lawyers Billing U.S. Millions in Fraudulent Attorney Fees" Who is surprised? Not me...
