Wilson Sporting Goods apparently is crafting a special baseball glove for The One to throw out the first pitch at the All Star game tomorrow night. It will have his last name stitched on it along with the number 44 and be sent to the Hall of Fame afterward. The Hall of Fame!! And, the first pitch will not go to the All Star catcher for the home team, but to Albert Pujols!
Will the fans in St. Louis at least have the good sense to boo?
On another front, that corpulent environmental whiner and hypocrite, Al Gore, has dropped all pretense about his efforts to ruin our economy and has thrown in with . . . the French!
As reported here:
Gore touted the Congressional climate bill, claiming it “will dramatically increase the prospects for success” in combating what he sees as the “crisis” of man-made global warming. “But it is the awareness itself that will drive the change and one of the ways it will drive the change is through global governance and global agreements.”
In 2000, French president Blacque Jacque Shirac said during a speech at The Hague that the UN's Kyoto Protocol represented "the first component of an authentic global governance."
So, "global governance" will become the term of choice for those on the fringe who traipse through life, blithely ignorant of the realities the rest of face -- earning a living, making a payroll, paying for college, putting something away for retirement.
In the face of a crushing economic downturn, we have a government that is doing everything it can to ruin -- ruin! -- our economy. First pointless spending, now we are on the verge of wrecking the greatest health care system in the world and imposing unprecedented taxes on us in the form of the so-called "cap-and-trade" bill. And for what? None of this will work! If you like the VA and Medicare, you're going to love government-run health care.
And if you think the government can do anything about global warming, you're fooling yourself. And you need to come to the Enchanted Mitten -- we're in the middle of July with temperatures in the 70s. I wish we had global warming!
This is what happens when you move in lockstep with the French.
