A new report shows that ISIS may possess chemical weapons.

That doesn’t bother me. What bothers me is how they probably plan to dispose of them.

Funny thing is, you can pretty much make the exact same commercial about Obama.

Irking liberals: having a Halloween costume of an Ebola hazmat suit and a respirator.

REALLY irking liberals: no hazmat suit, just a clipboard.

While reflecting on Obama’s handling of the Ebola situation, it occurred to me that he doesn’t really need to DO anything, other than stay out of the way of people who know what they’re doing and try not to say anything exceptionally stupid on camera in the meantime.

Which reminded me of a similar situation from 2010: the BP oil spill.

Seems to me the predictions were quite dire about how that would end all life on earth as we know it. Or something.

So I did some light Googling and came across two interesting things.

From 2012:

This Friday, April 20, will mark two years since the explosion aboard the Deepwater Horizon oil rig caused vast quantities of crude oil to flow into the Gulf of Mexico. But despite the size of the spill, “the natural recovery is far greater than what anybody hoped when it happened,” said a professor of biology. “The fears of most people — that there would be a catastrophic collapse of the ecosystem in the Gulf — never materialized.”

And this – from October 2014. Apparently that billion dollars the government stole from BP in the name of “justice”… they’re STILL trying to come up with enough boondoggles and sweetheart deals to squander it on. Few, if any, of which are actually directly related to oil spill recovery. And none of the projects have even started. It’s all STILL in the planning stages.

My conclusion: keep Obama away from TV cameras and other people’s money, and we should be just fine.

A new report shows that if you have $3,650, you’re among the wealthiest half of people in the world.

Keep that in mind when Obama says he wants the wealthy to pay their fair share.

Asked how Obamacare’s second open enrollment period would go, HHS’s Sylvia Mathews Burwell said she expects “there will be issues that will be raised as we go”.

Also, premiums.

Was supposed to leave for Texas this morning, but 18 month old son had a 102 fever, one cat’s foot was broken (long story short, I installed new blinds poorly), and there was still some work left to do in the house. But God-willing, tomorrow morning we leave for Austin. That’s me, SarahK, two small kids, two cats and a dog in a little SUV toting a trailer.

Anyway, one of these days I’ll get to Texas and start my cool new job at Emergent Order. And hopefully stop neglecting this blog so much. Keep us in your prayers.

The European Space Agency brags about their comet-orbiting probe:


[Ambition the film] (Viewer #426,356)

I like this video because of the eye-candy visuals.

I’m not sure how I feel about the setting, though.

They take a hard-science topic like spaceflight and turn it into some magical-mystical mumbo-jumbo thing. It’s an insult to every nerd in every laboratory on the planet.

Oh, and that whole “I destroyed it” thing at the end. Spoken like a true socialist who feels like he has the right to revoke your accomplishments on a whim just because he’s feeling puckish.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel unveiled a comprehensive plan for how the US military will address the effects of climate change.

I’m really hoping it’s “ignore it and go kill terrorists”.
