Pension funds argue in Washington for climate change regulations

Large pension funds, including the Connecticut state pension fund, and companies called Monday for Congress to place limits on emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases blamed for global warming, the latest among several business-oriented groups to call for a national climate policy.

Worry about building the pension fund, and leave the moonbattery to the experts.

20 pygmy rabbits released in Washington

Two groups of tiny, dark-eyed, salt-and-pepper rabbits were released in a sagebrush field in eastern Washington last week, raising the population of Columbia Basin pygmy rabbits in the wild from zero to 20.

They are the smallest rabbits in the United States and one of only two types in North America that dig their own burrows. Adults weigh about a pound, and measure a foot long. The Columbia Basin rabbits are a genetically distinct sub-population of the Great Plains pygmy rabbits found in California, Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, Utah and Nevada.

Why don’t they just do what bunnies do so well? 🙂

Fla. judge involved in Anna Nicole faces pot charge

A judge who had a secondary role in the recent Anna Nicole Smith proceedings was charged with smoking marijuana in a city park, police said Monday.

Lawrence Korda was smoking marijuana while sitting under a tree Sunday, police said. Three officers who were training there saw Korda and field-tested the cigarette, said Capt. Tony Rode, a police spokesman.

Nice to know someone sworn to uphold the law is incapable of following it, isn’t it.

Virginia Gun Dealers Hold Contest to Protest New York Mayor Bloomberg’s Gun Policy

Amid the Confederate flags, anti-Yankee bumper stickers and Civil War relics on display at Bob Moates Sport Shop, a counterattack against the North is under way.

“Ask about the Bloomberg Gun GiveAway” reads a sign taped to the gun shop’s register, beckoning customers to enter the drawing named for New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, whose federal lawsuits against gun dealers in five states have drawn the wrath of Virginia’s gun enthusiasts.

Bloomberg says the dealers holding the contest are sick. The dealers call Bloomberg names that aren’t fit to print.

And I think it’s quite amusing that a RINO get the slap down. 🙂

State Senate passes ‘Grill Bill’

Only dentists could take impressions for mouth jewelry known as “grills” or “fronts” under a bill passed by Senate today.

The measure sponsored by Sen. Thelma Harper, D-Nashville, is aimed at mall kiosks and jewelry stores that take dental impressions under less-than-sanitary conditions.

The fact there was a need for such a bill scares me.

Mars Caves Revealed in Images

They may not be gold mines, but the discovery of what appears to be caves on Mars could prove just as rich.

Scientists studying infrared and visible images taken by the Mars Odyssey orbiter have found what they believe are seven caves flanking a volcano known as Arsia Mons, located in the planet’s equatorial region.

The finding is significant because caves could have provided shelter for life forms needing protection from solar radiation, cosmic particle bombardments, dust storms and micrometeoroid impacts, said Glen Cushing, with the U.S. Geological Survey in Flagstaff, Ariz.

Cool.

  1. Would you have the nerve to be the first person to go into a Martian cave?

  2. Uh….no. I’d prefer to keep my feet firmly planted. Ri’chere. 🙂 30 years ago? Maybe. Now, I’m a major wuss! LOL
