it doesn’t feel much colder when it passes really cold

I get the temperature in the morning off my computer.

I don’t mean that I feel the computer to check how cold it is in the room….I mean that I have a program on the computer that tells me how cold it is.

If the computer were smaller, I’d call it an “app”…but it’s been on there so long that I’m sure that whatever this thing is that tells me how cold it is, it must have predated “apps”.

I’m sure that it must be only a “program”.

When I checked this morning, I thought something must be broken.  It said that the temperature was -1 degrees.

That’s pretty cold.

That’s colder than I remember it being for a long while.

I watched the heck out of this movie when it came out.

I don’t know how scientific it is.

I listened to Rush Limbaugh while I was driving around with the mail yesterday…and he talked for quite a while about what a hoax global warming is. From what I heard, I suspect that this movie is nothing but more Leftist Democratic Hollywood Socialist Media lies.

It sure entertained me and my mushhead, though.

Rush broadcasts from southern Florida…so he was plenty warm.

He was pleasantly warm though….and I think that’s why he can say that the “global warming” thing isn’t real.  It’s not getting hotter….look how cold it is?

Global “warming”?!!  Nah…look at those boats frozen in the ice…nothing is melting….it’s cold.


When we politicize environmental issues, it’s kind of strange.

If we figure out a way to politicize spiritual issues, it’s kind of strange.

I’ve heard separation of church and state…maybe I should change that to “separation of environment and state”.

What would that make me if I thought that? Some kind of Libertarian or something?  I don’t know.

Everybody’s got to stick their nose into everything…sniff around and pass judgement.  I guess that is just what we do.

I don’t really know enough science to want to debunk or “celebrate” global warming.

(“Celebrate” global warming?! Like “Wheeeeeee!!  I was right!!! The world is coming to an end!!  I’m the winner!! I was right!!”)

That’s sort of a copout…to say that it’s above my pay grade to figure that stuff out…but I really don’t know enough to pass an educated judgement on what we’re doing to the environment.

Now, I do know that the Chinese are really screwing things up…but I do like buying cheap stuff down at the Wal-Mart, so I’ll overlook that as long as I can.

So it’s really cold here today.  I don’t have the luxury of being someplace warm where I can scream about why somebody else is wrong about the reasons for the cold.

Where I am right now is kind of chilly.

But you know, except for the folks in Florida, I suppose that everyone in the country today is thinking “join the club”.

Things is tough all over, bub.

It’s cold.  I feel my cheek freezing when the breeze hits it.  My eyes hurt when the wind gets in them.

I don’t know that any politician could explain the situation better than a good cold wind does.

So until someone can prove that global warming is a scientifically and talk show host supported phenomenon, I’m going to keep driving around as much as I can, spewing out as much carbon monoxide as my vehicle can produce…and run the heater at full blast while I do it to compensate for this chilly weather.

It’s harder to hit a moving target, anyway.
