Well, Happy New Year to you all and may the year be bountiful and filled with joy.
We live in a world of socialists and worse but they can’t get us all! So enjoy and do what you can to avoid the covid-bearing global warmists. The stupid have always ruled because power is such an empty ambition for anyone with sense.
Government used to be about laying down the rules for a civil society. We found the rules for getting on with each other. In the West we made it so the rules covered how we produce and sold things to each other. But they were the rules which we amended from time to time.
We didn’t prescribe what each was owed by each other. That is now changed. We now have governments which decide what each must give to others to be “fair”. And since wealth is what we create better than anyone else, what we must give to each other.
The wealthy have ordained what the middle class must give to those with less, but while leaving the wealthy more or less alone.
I saw this post on Powerline, Why climate models don’t work. Absurd. Of course they work, just not in telling you what the temperature will be some time in the future. What they are for is to give the patina of legitimacy to the forecasts of doom (I won’t say “impending” doom since it is always years into the future).
The pretence that we are avoiding some doomsday scenario is their entire intent. Just because nothing is ever accurately predicted is nothing since it is always in the future that these forecasts are made and no one ever looks at past predictions.
Look at Watts Up with That to see a bit of reality:
It was the tenth anniversary of this blog at the end of October and I meant to mention it but such is life. It is a kind of diary of political events which was originally for the family but went on from there.
