About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

Carly & Some Common Sense Climate Change Questions

In this interview, with over 1 million views, Carly Fiorina shows her grasp of facts on yet another subject as she provides a very reasonable approach & analysis regarding climate change, formerly known as global cooling in 1975 & more recently global warming.
I hope everyone who is on the fence concerning whether or not there is any validity to the climate change issue will consider Carly's common sense points made on the video with an open mind or @ least contrast them with BO's commentary regarding skyrocketing electricity rates under his proposed cap & trade system that targets putting coal burning plants out of business.
Just last week, to no ones' surprise, BO officially rejected the Keystone XL pipeline project after almost seven years of delays & State Department reviews.  This is just the latest example of BO's subterfuge using environmental issues to ruin one piece after another of the American economy - as if we need more examples of BO purposely working against America.
But before you surrender your way of life to socialist climate change regulations (that will put U.S. businesses @ a competitive disadvantage with developing nations who have no such regs or ignore them if they do) that reduce innovation & productivity thereby resulting in higher energy costs, slower economic growth, & reduced job creation please do not panic & concede defeat to someone who can not address to your satisfaction the points Carly makes in the above video or the following few points I present below off the top of my head:
1.  In recent years it was determined that the polar ice caps were melting.
2.  Where is all of this carbon dioxide greenhouse gas - the density of CO2 is greater than air?    How did CO2 get into the upper atmosphere to form a thermal blanket over the earth?
3.  The specific volume (inverse of density) of ice is greater than liquid water - meaning that as ice melts to liquid water the resultant material takes up less volume not more.  Where does the flooding & rise of sea level come from?
4.  What is the cost of adapting to global warming if it is real?  The economic consequences of pouring money into complying with regs resulting from unproven (political) science consensus could be much worse than the warming itself.  As far as the so called consensus is concerned - it is a good thing for us that Columbus didn't believe in the consensus that the earth was flat in 1492.
5.  Are we to believe that we will wake up one morning 100 years from now & the sea will be higher to flooding levels all @ once or is there a profile of what we can expect & measure in (say) three or five year increments?
6.  Why are some politicians more worried about the effects of climate change 100 years from now than they are about Social Security's financial integrity?  Who knows what other issues we will face in 100 years but we do know that Social Security has been paying out more in benefits than it collects in tax revenue since 2010 & that the program will run a deficit by 2022 when the combination of tax revenue & interest earnings are exceeded by benefit payments - such that across the board benefits cuts of about 25% are projected by 2035, if not sooner.  
The enjoyment of the American way of life takes energy - we consume 25% of the oil produced in the world every day.  Before I will feel guilty about employing the blessings that God has bestowed on this earth for human use I want to hear some definitive answers to both the points Carly makes in the above video as well as the above six preliminary common sense questions so that a real debate can begin instead of just emotional points designed to mislead. 
By the way, the melting polar ice caps that I mentioned in point #1 above - they are the ones on Mars.


  1. Great article, agree with it all, the only way earth will be flooded is if all the moisture collected in the atmosphere decides to rain.

  2. I hear pros and cons about climate change, I do not know who will be right. I do know social security will be here 20 years from now. If govt.does not have the money, all they do is raise retirement age to maybe 85 years of age, if that does not work, raise the age limit to 90.

  3. Kudo's to Carly for exhibiting such mastery of details and reasonable solutions to all issues that are presented to her.
