July has rolled in on a heatwave. Here in northeast New York state it is nothing like so many other parts of the country. Large numbers of homes are still without electricity following a severe thunderstorm south of us, in the mid-Atlantic region. Another storm blew through Tennessee and knocked out power a few days ago.

But global warming is a scare tactic of the liberal left. At least that is what the triple R threat would say.

Thank you for asking what the triple R threat is. (She types while trying to rub her hands in glee, which is pretty hard to do.) That would be the Religious Republican Right (or as we say in our household, the Religious Republic wRong). Let's ignore all signs that our raping and pillaging the earth for a selfish greedy needs might have something to do with the weather.

For too long the democrats have bent over backwards trying to find compromises--have tried to get along with others. Have we waited too late? I keep wondering what happened to all the idealistic youth of the 60s and 70s? Have they gone to old businessmen everyone? When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn?!


  1. Here in the UK we have just suffered the wettest April to June on record. We have also had our warmest March on record. This is turning into our sixth wet summer in a row. Wet countries are becoming wetter. Dry countries are becoming drier. But global warming does not exist? Excuse me while I go and bash my head against a wall (again).

  2. I know what you mean--it really upsets me when so many political and business "leaders" bury their heads in the sand about global warming.

    One of the other things that bothers me is how many people have come to rely on air-conditioning as a must, even on gorgeous days like today. Our morning started out a little on the humid side, but it was in the mid-seventies (F) (I think that would be around 23-24 C). A front passed through and it has been gorgeous the rest of the day (a little warmer--no humidity). Open windows and fans in the morning keep air moving in the house. By evening the fans could be turned off.

    We squander resources with no thoughts of what we really need personally and collectively. Okay, maybe it's time for me to jump off my soapbox. :)
