CO2 is NOT a Pollutant; Seeing is Believing

Watch this amazing time lapse video that shows the growth of two identical plants over 42 days. One is grown at normal atmospheric CO2 levels, the other is grown in a dramatically elevated level of CO2. The results are remarkable.

The plant grown in the high levels of CO2 grows faster, bigger and healthier than the plant grown in normal levels of CO2.

I have been writing for years that CO2 is not a pollutant. Plants use CO2 to produce food and oxygen that is required for all animal and human life on earth.

Warmer temperatures and higher levels of CO2 are beneficial to plants, animals and human society. Plants and potential farmland increase and more land becomes hospitable to human, plant and animal life when Earths climate becomes warmer and CO2 increases. On the other hand, lower temperatures and lower levels of co2 limit the plant and animal life that the Earth can sustain by humans and livestock.

Here is a link to an article that I wrote nearly 2 years ago entitled: "The Global Warming Myth Revisited": http://garyganu.blogspot.com/2008/07/global-warming-myth-revisited.html

Is Obama An Evil Tyrant?

What if our president is truly evil and does want to destroy America as we know it. It wouldn't be the first time. This happened in Nazi Germany. This happened in Communist Cuba. This happened in Fascist Italy. This happened in Communist China. This is currently happening in Venezuela.

The tyrannical leaders of these regimes gained power by convincing regular people, politicians, intellectuals and the press that they were benevolent leaders that were for the common person. Good people were fooled by their slick "public relations campaign" .By the time they gained power, it was too late. The tyrant had the power to kill, terrorize or imprison his opposition. I fear that is what is happening in our country right now.

This past week there was a demonstration at the gate to the White House. Six people, who were protesting the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, chained themselves to the White House gate. Before arrests were made, The White House Park Police closed the area to the press and spectators. The willing press retreated and did not show footage of the protesters and the arrest on the mainstream media. The only ones to cover this was FOX news, talk radio and blogs. The white house is now demonizing FOX News, talk radio and the Internet. Obama is attempting to control all information. The major TV networks and most newspapers are already loyal to Obama. The MSM is falsely demonizing tea partiers as racists, and violent extremists. The Administration is controlling the media. This is always the first step in taking over a nation. This is what Hugo Chavez is doing in Venezuela. Here is a link to the story about the White House protesters from Politico with a truly frightening video embedded: http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0410/Most_transparent_White_House_ever.html?showall

I am growing tired of providing examples of Marxists, communists, Maoists and revolutionaries in the Obama Administration and among the people who were most influential in his life.

I am terrified at what is happening to our country at this time. I am trying to open as many eyes as possible before it is too late. I am not an isolated kook. A growing potion of America's population is waking up to this reality. About 25% agree with me according to recent estimates.

Glenn Beck seems to be the most informative investigative journalist. Beck has a non-stop research team that is constantly uncovering the hidden truths about those in power. Beck is doing a great job of educating the public about American history, past and present. For this reason, he has become the biggest target of the Obama administration and the MSM. I recommend watching Glenn Beck for those who truly want to be informed whether you are liberal or conservative. The truth does not take sides. I beleive that Beck is impartial and has no ulterior motives. He is only interested in uncovering the truth, serving God, his country and his family.

Make Fun Of Muhammad (The Islamic Prophet) With Jokes And Show Some True Courage:

This week Comedy Central censored much of a South Park episode following a death threat from a radical Muslim group. I came across an article about the recent censorship of the South Park "Muhammad" episode. It went on to say "Courage is rare and it deserves to be rewarded." I was intrigued.

Here is the link to the entire article: http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2010-04-22/stand-with-south-park/full/

After reading the article I was disgusted to learn what this cowardly wuss considers courage to be.

His advise was to:
1) Watch South Park and support its sponsors.
2) Sign an online "anti-death-threat petition"
3) Declare that the uncensored version of South Park be televised
4) Tell Muslims to read a book that advises them to stand up to terrorists

I don't want to watch South Park or go out of my way to support its sponsors. They are cowardly wusses for caving in to terrorist threats. I suggest that we boycott South Park to punish them for appeasing terrorists.

I have a different idea that displays true courage. Lets inundate the Internet with jokes about Muhammad. I think that dirty, gay jokes would be a good place to start.

It's too bad that we can't do this in solidarity with South Park, maybe they will grow some gonads and do it in solidarity with us.

Feel free to copy and past this post on every blog that you know. Have the courage to post this on your own blog. Please add more Muhammad jokes.

Wanna hear a dirty joke? Muhammad falls into the mud
Wanna hear a clean joke? He takes a bath with bubbles
Wanna hear a dirty joke? Bubbles is Micheal Jackson.

Q. Why doesn't Muhammad use toilet paper?
A. Because he's finger licking good!

What does a gay Muhammad and an ambulance have in common?
They both get loaded from the rear and go whoo-whoo!

Muhammad was not born gay. He was sucked into it.
I know that my jokes are pretty lame. (lol) Please help me come up with some good ones.


It seems that I am not the only one with this idea. Here is an excerpt from an article that suggests we all post satirical depictions of Muhammad on May 5, 2110. Here is the link: http://hotair.com/archives/2010/04/23/its-on-everybody-draw-mohammed-day-set-for-may-20th/

Here is an excerpt:

If each threat produces more blasphemers than it silences, then threats suddenly become counterproductive. Or at least, they do to rational minds. (A flaw in the theory?)
We came up with the same idea independently. It seems that great minds think alike.

Women, Minorities and Gays Are Unfairly Targeted By Syphilis, Chlamydia and Gonorrhea

Here is an excerpt from an article in today's Miami Herald:

• Syphilis up 53 percent, from 204 reported cases in 2006 to 313 cases in 2009, with 73 percent of such cases in men who self-identify as men who have sex with men.

• Chlamydia up 64 percent, from 5,069 to 8,330 cases, with 71 percent of cases among women, mostly between 15 and 24 years of age.

• Gonorrhea up 24 percent, from 1,892 to 2,350 cases, with African Americans and Hispanics several times as likely to be infected as non-Hispanic whites.

Here is the link to the entire article: http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/04/22/1591619/miami-dade-county-sees-surge-in.html

When I saw this article, it reminded me of an article that I read in an Iowa newspaper several years ago. That article made the point that black high school students were disproportionately targeted for suspensions and expulsions. That article went on to blame racism for this disparity, despite the fact that most suspensions and expulsions were for carrying weapons, committing violence and for drug crimes. The evidence was not in dispute. I was suprised to learn that criminal behavior could infect a specific race, just like I am surprised to learn today that STDs are very sexist, racist and homophobic when choosing their victims.

Obviously individual behaviors are responsible for these disparities, not racism, sexism and homophobia. Those who falsely make charges of bigotry, are bigots themselves and should be stigmatized just as strongly as true bigots are. The consequences of false charges of racism can be very severe. The principals in Iowa schools could lose their job because of false charges of racism. Also the students and teachers could be victims of violent crimes if the principal fails to act because of the fear of false charges of racism.

Why are we including race in statistical studies? Race is irrelevant if we are striving toward a color-blind society. Martin Luther King said that all people should be judged by their character [as manifested in their behavior]. People should not be categorized by their race, sex or sexual preference. We should be judged solely by our behavior. After all, isn't that what STDs really do?

Conservatives And Liberals Have Different Values

During my lengthy discussions with liberals, I have gained insight into the different core beliefs that are the "crux" of our disagreements. The following is an example of one core belief that separates liberals from conservatives.

Liberals believe that there are no moral absolutes. Liberals beleive that it is up to each individual to come up with a "moral code" that is right for him and his situation. For example: Liberals will justify stealing food if their family is hungry.

On the other hand, myself (and most conservatives) believe that there are moral absolutes (universal spiritual principles)that are just as relevant today as they were 5000 years ago. Morality does not change through time and circumstance. Conservatives believe that it is honorable to strive toward these spiritual ideals although we are incapable of fully reaching them. However, spiritual progress, not perfection can be achieved during our lifetime..

Enforcing Strict Immigration Laws Is The Most Humane Answer For The Immigration Problem

For the past 30 years, the US has absorbed more illegal aliens than we can safely handle. According to many estimates, over 20 million illegal aliens live in America. The following analogy compares America's immigration problem, to a lifeboat in the ocean.

The US is like a life boat in the ocean with more people clamouring to get aboard than the lifeboat can safely handle. All life boats have an maximum occupancy limit. For example, let's say that a life boat has a safe limit of 35 passengers. If the life-boat is carrying 25 passengers and there are many more people flailing about in the water, they have an obligation to save as many as they can. The people in the boat agree to pick up 10 more passengers. Now they have reached the limit that their boat can safely handle, however, there are still many more people in the water who will surely die if they don't get out of the water soon. The people in the life boat are humanitarians and desperately want to help the victims in the water. They decide that they can risk picking up another 10 people. If the waves are not to choppy, and the wind remains calm and they all sit very still while waiting to be rescued, they have a good chance of all 45 people aboard surviving.

However, there are still more people in the water who will surely die without assistance. Most of the people aboard the lifeboat are afraid that the boat will capsize and they will all drown if they let any more people aboard.

Their is a crowd in the water that is swimming toward the life boat trying to save themselves. Some people aboard the life boat take pity on them and convince the others that they have room for 5 more passengers. Being humanitarians, they agreed to let 5 more people on board, but no more because that would mean that would be way too risky.

The lifeboat heads toward the crowd of remaining victims in the water. The boat was rushed by dozens of victims that were clamoring to get an board. In the process, the boat capsized and everyone fell into the water and died of exposure long before a rescue team arrived.

This disaster could have been avoided if the survivors in the lifeboat knew where to draw the line. They could have saved themselves and saved many others if they knew when cut off assistance that they were not capable of delivering.

Likewise, America can not absorb every economic, political, medical and criminal refugee in the world. If we do not draw a line and set a limit, we will be overwhelmed by desperate people trying to survive and we will all go down together. Being a TRUE humanitarian means knowing where to set reasonable limits and to protect ourselves first, so that we can be in a position to provide assistance to some, but not all that are clamoring for help.

Illegal immigration puts a huge toll on America's social services, public schools, health care system, legal system, court system, penal system and economy.

Regulated immigration allows us to limit the number of people coming in and screen them for criminal backgrounds, disease and for mental disorders. This can only be accomplished by actively punishing and deporting all illegal aliens. We must be humanitarian enough to limit the numbers of people we let in. We must also screen people out who are likely to be an excessive drain on our system. This way we can help the maximum number of refugees while still maintaining America's ability to sustain itself economically and politically. Tough decisions must be made. If we don't exercise restraint on our humanitarian efforts, America will become just as impoverished, corrupt and lawless as the nations that the refugees are fleeing. At that point we will be unable to keep America afloat, let alone help refugees that are clamouring to get aboard the lifeboat called the USA.

Societal Progress is Cyclical and Repetitive, Scarcity and Oppression Will Surely Follow

Modern Christianity undoubtedly has a positive role in today's world and in American culture. It upsets me when I see Christianity mocked and demonized by people who would rather exempt themselves from Christian values. IMHO, Christian values are universal spiritual principles. IMHO, Christian values were indispensable in the formation of the US which led us to become the freest, wealthiest, most benevolently powerful nation that this world has ever seen. IMHO, our nation is in decline because we are straying from the Christian values that this nation was founded upon.

I believe that societal progress is not evolutionary, it is cyclical and repetitive. We (the human race) can never improve our humanity as a whole over time, in the long run here on Earth. The human race is NOT perfectible. We (as a people)never learn. God made us flawed. God gave us free will. We all struggle with the good and evil inclinations within each of us. This is just the way it is. History repeats itself.

We may have more stuff and more liberties now, but times of plenty and times of famine have always been a cyclical part of human history. Scarcity and oppression will surely follow. Individuals have the same strengths and weaknesses as we did during biblical times. History repeats itself. The human soul faces the same challenges today as it always has. The human condition has been a constant since biblical times.

However, I believe that each one of us has constant and ongoing internal struggles with good versus evil. This is permanent part of human nature. Successive generations will never improve human nature. History proves this to be true.

Never-the-less, I believe that we can advance our eternal soul if we make the right choices when we are challenged. Human existence constantly tests and challenges us all. Rich and poor, healthy and sickly, privileged and oppressed are all challenged spiritually. We all have free will. Even a slave has free will. Our choices in this lifetime will determine how our soul progresses spiritually in the next existence.

Perhaps those that have the least advantage in this life, find it easier to make righteous decisions. Perhaps they are positioned to have less difficulty making the right choices in this life, which will progress their soul in the next. This is why we should never pity those who appear less fortunate than us or be envious of those who appear more fortunate. We all have different challenges. Perhaps, in the long run, those who have it hardest on Earth are better off than those who are more comfortable, happy and privileged.

Spiritual progress in my personal yardstick for success in this lifetime. For some people, perhaps myself, not being evil is the best we can do much of the time.

These are my personal beliefs.
