Somewhere in Arkansas

A village is missing an idiot.

Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR), was asked the following question …
“What part of the Constitution do you think gives Congress the authority to mandate that individuals have to purchase health insurance?”

“Well, I just think the Constitution charges Congress with the health and well-being of the people,” Lincoln said. then asked the Senator: “So, what area though? You’re saying the health and well-being. What area, though, does that fall under?”

“The health and well-being of the people of the country,” she replied.

Of course. The old “health and well-being clause.” How could anyone have missed that?

Perhaps Mrs. Lincoln might be reminded of other words in the Constitution: The Oath of Office. In fact, the oath is required by the Constitution; the wording is prescribed by law.

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Mrs. Lincoln, the words “health” and “well-being” do not appear anywhere in the Constitution.

You are a **#$% disgrace.

Issues update

I took a lickin’, but I’m still tickin’.

Surgery sucked bad. Kidney was stage 2 renal cell carcinoma, but contained.

Radiation treatments for maltoma sucked.

But, not quite as bad.

Doc says, “99% cure. I’d give you a 100%, but I’m an M.D., not a G-O-D.” Heh™
(And, that reminds me of several “God Moments” that have occurred over the past 90 days or so. Remind me to tell you about them sometimes.)

Looks like y’all are going to have to put up with me a bit longer.

Another global warming “oops”

Strike Two for Algore ….

Or, maybe it was just a typo.  “2350” and “2035” are separated by just a keystroke.  Not much of a difference, unless you’re discussing dates, then the difference is staggering.

The UN panel on climate change warning that Himalayan glaciers could melt to a fifth of current levels by 2035 is wildly inaccurate, an academic says.

J Graham Cogley, a professor at Ontario Trent University, says he believes the UN authors got the date from an earlier report wrong by more than 300 years.

He is astonished they “misread 2350 as 2035”. The authors deny the claims.

Leading glaciologists say the report has caused confusion and “a catalogue of errors in Himalayan glaciology”.

The science is settled?

hmm. I guess the billion folks who depend on the Himalayan glaciers for drinking water have a little bit longer to work this problem out than Al thought.
