It’s Time to Invade Canada

Crossposted at Daily Kos

“Strike while the iron is hot.”

“Make hay while the sun shines.”

“Take time by the forelock.”

Or, as they say it in French, “Il faut battre le fer pendant qu’il est chaud.”

All are time-tested phrases in the English and French languages amounting to the same thing: the time to act and take advantage is now.  For timing is everything in peace, love, politics, and war.  Once the opportunity slips by, one may never get the chance again.  Simply put: use it or lose it.

Why the urgency?  What is this terrific opportunity that’s been given to us and why must we act upon it right now?

I’m dead serious.  The only way to effect change is through sacrifice (changing your habits) and protest (telling people what you think, publicly).

On Our Wacky Weather, Or, Did The Olympic Torch Stop In Oklahoma?

As most of you are well aware, last week was a snow week in Washington, DC, and the odds are pretty good that there’s something like that going on for you as well.

Our good friends in the conservative community have seized upon the moment as proof that this whole “global warming” thing is just a big scam perpetrated by the likes of Al Gore and his Legion Of Weather Nazis; their mission being only to deprive the American people of their Constitutional right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of a Ford Super Duty F-450 King Ranch Edition with the Heavy Service Suspension Package, Snow Plow Prep Package, Transmission Power Take-Off Provision, dual alternators, and supplemental cab heater.  

To drive the point home, last week Senator James Inhofe’s family went to the time and trouble to build a little igloo on the National Mall for our amusement.

But here’s a question: just what has the weather been like in other places-for example, in my part of the world…or in the Senator’s home State of Oklahoma?

It’s a good question-and the Senator won’t like the answer.

I’m Dropping Olympic Coverage

What NBC did tonight to the premier event of Alpine Skiing was just inexcusable.

Half an hour of coverage, 4 or 5 skiers, puff bios and a crash reel.

Followed by Polar Bears.

The Olympics is not worth watching and I’m not going to encourage you to do it.  In fact I’m going to encourage you to watch something else by providing alternatives.

I had hoped this would be a fun event we could share.

Instead I find I have better things to do with my life and so do you.

If we will not vote with our eyeballs against the elite smirking assholes and morons who control our media, what sacrifice are we prepared to make?

I will be busy tomorrow all day.

Caribou, I’m sorry that I involved you in this.  You can make your own decision as can everyone else, but I will not be insulted.

Update: a petition from TheMomCat.
