#1 That "Wingnuts" picture is entirely correct.
(You youngsters have probably never seen or heard of a wingnut,it's shorthand for "KOOK".)

#2 Oh, I've seen it lots of times. It's what the Daily POS and DU use to refer to sites such as rantburg.

-----------

ION, I had a disturbing thought about energy policy last night. Specifically, wosshisname's reported advocacy of nuclear power as a solution.

Nuclear power comes in two flavors. Fission and Fusion.

Fission, we've gotten to work as a power source, but it's been strangled by NIMBY stuff, lots of bureaucratic red tape, the typical two-faced tactics, "We'll be glad to use nuclear power as soon as there's a Permanent Solution to the waste problem!" before doing everything they can to monkeywrench any solution to the waste problem. Nuclear waste dumps are pretty much persona au gratin in the modern political system, and the experimental reactor designs to destroy nuclear waste were canceled back in the Clinton Administration.

It's easy for the Mandarin Class, for lack of a better term, to say they want nuclear plants but make sure new ones are never completed.

And then there's fusion. Which I'll get to later, I have to run some errands now. Work, the curse of the blogging class...

#4 A year ago I told one of my kids that Obama was smart but not experienced. I was wrong. He's not smart either.

#5 classer, the things on each side of the President's head are called Cranium Fins. I think they are supposed to dissipate excess logic.

#7 WORLD MIL FORUM > ITS THE SUN, STUPID! The same Earth-Sun orbital relationship that is inducing a so-called "Global Coooling/Ice Age" on the Nortehrn Hemisphere is causing the Southern hemisphere to heat up. ITS OKAY BECUZ THATS HOW ITS SUPPOSSED TO BE - WHAT EARTH REALLY HAS TO BE MINDFUL OR AWARE OF IS WHEN ANY GLACIAL EFFECT BEGINS AS THIS WILL REQUIRE THE DEV OF MAINLY NUCLEAR + OTHER ADVANCED [ANTI-COLD/GLACIATION]POWER GENERATION SYSTEMS, NOT THOSE KINDS OF POWER GENER SYSTEMS HEAVILY OR WHOLLY DEPENDENT ON BIOFUELS.

Unless Mankind can learn to grow UNDERGROUND overwhelmingly massive, land/space-expending amounts of natural commodities for bio-fueled Power Gener IN ORDER TO SURVIVE AND LIVE A "NORMAL QUALITY-OF-LIFE" DESPITE THE COMING ABOVE-GROUND "COOLING/ICE AGE"!?
