Shockingly, all the statements they made about the certainty of climate warm-changing were made without quoting any sources or any other direct scientists.
Of course if they did, that would subject them to scrutiny. Though they do quote some UNL scientists who say that if the weather turns warm…er…the CLIMATE changes, agriculture states would be hardest hit.
Well, THERE is some hard science we can get behind. If the weather gets bad, farmers will be affected. Of course, if the weather IMPROVES, farmers will also be affected.
But can we please get it out of our system that Berkshire and the others are working on Global Warmin…CLIMATE change, out of the goodness of their hearts? They will do it IF it makes good business (including PR) sense. If not, they will “buy and hold utility companies throughout the world for decades to come.”
Which is fine.
But enough of, “OH the CLIMATE!!!”
Just wondering if the OWH got a chance to ask their boss Warren about all of his contributions and thoughts on baby-parts dealers, Planned Parenthood.
How about that…
The newsies report that there are currently 8 applicants for the Legislative Seat abandoned by Brad Ashford COS Jeremy Nordquist.
A former Democrat state Senator from the District, John Synowiecki, has applied for the gig — and will likely run in 2016 whether he gets the appointment or not.
Discussing the applicants, the LJS’s Don Walton gave an interesting description of the South Omaha District:
The 7th District spreads across South Omaha and through downtown Omaha and includes older eastern European immigrant neighborhoods.
Right. Because that’s how we all think of South Omaha these days, right?
It’s like a stroll through Old Town Prague. From the front door of the Bohemian Cafe, along the side of the parking lot, and back into the Bohemian Cafe through the back door.
In case Don missed it, when South High won the state soccer tournament a few years ago, they weren’t running the Polish flag across the field.
So while Don may long for the old days of when my grandma was baking kolaches along 13th Street, the reality is it is just a tad more Latino these days.
But that doesn’t quite jibe with the name, “Synowiecki”, now does it?
Interesting that The Don left out the CV of one applicant: former Missouri House of Representatives member Zach Wyatt-Gomez.
Wyatt-Gomez made headlines a few years back when he was the only openly gay Republican serving as a state rep. He gave up his seat when he went back to school, but has apparently renewed his interest in elective government.
On his Facebook page, Wyatt-Gomez gives an account of why he is a Republican. (Though I honestly don’t know much more about him — and this isn’t meant to be some sort of endorsement.)
Now if only Don can find out if he is a fan of dumplings and kraut…
And speaking of being non-responsive, didja see Hillary’s response on whether or not she supports the Keystone XL Pipeline?
“If it’s undecided when I become president, I will answer your question,” Clinton said. “This is President Obama’s decision. I’m not going to second-guess him.”
THERE’s you “leader” Democrats!
Such a Bold statement, eh Nebraska?
“Hey Hillary, what’s your position on [insert absolutely ANY issue here]?”
“Oh my! That’s a current issue! I can’t answer that! You’ll have to elect me to find out what’s in my head.”
Mighty fine candidate ya got there.
