A Song Dedication To The People Of San Fran!!!

 

The back story to this  ….

San Francisco radio stations won’t play Lorde’s hit song ‘Royals’ during World Series

Personally, I don’t think it’s all that great of a song, but, if it puts some SF people’s panties in a wad, then, …. well, why not play it?

When I was a baseball fan, I was a Pirate fan.  But, nearly all baseball fans in these parts are Royal fans.  I’m disappointed there’s not going to be another I-70 series, this year, maybe next year.  My oldest daughter was born during the first one ….. I was still a fan, back then. 

Still, it’s nice to see a small market team make it to the Series.  Baseball doesn’t have the revenue sharing scheme the NFL does, so the small market teams are at a horrible disadvantage to the larger market teams, which makes the current Royals accomplishment that much greater. 

San Fran???  Phhttt!!!!  Bonds couldn’t carry Brett’s jockstrap without ‘roids.

Gems 2014 — October 20 Scripture Selection: 2 Thessalonians 1

Guest post by Jeanette Andrade

October 20 Scripture Selection: 2 Thessalonians 1

Food for Thought: 2 Thes. 1:11, 12

What an excellent prayer! Second Thessalonians 1:11, 12 expresses in these two small verses the essence of our personal walk with Christ and the ultimate purpose of our calling. What would happen if every believer consistently prayed in faith this scripture over him/herself, over loved ones, and over the Church? The results would be astounding!

Let’s look more closely at this prayer:

*“Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling” The calling verse eleven refers to is found in verse ten. It is the calling to glorify Jesus Christ “in His saints,” and that all those who believe admire Him.

*“and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power” This section challenges us to make it our life’s mission to allow the Lord to fulfill His good and perfect will, everything that pleases Him, every purpose, in us. This is through the faith of God working in us with power. Where there is power, there is evidence of it. The Christian life should be a life of victories, both big and small, over the enemy.

*“that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.” As we live out God’s will for our lives, lives of faith, power and victory, the name of the Lord Jesus Christ is glorified in us, and we in Him. That is only because of the grace of God and the Lord Jesus Christ that is extended abundantly over and in us.

As confirmation of the grace of God for us, Romans 5:17 says, “For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.) All this is accomplished by grace through Jesus Christ for His glory. And that is the ultimate will of God, something very much worth us praying about and pursuing daily.

Breaking!!!!! Wind Energy Causes Energy Prices To Soar!!!!!

image

James Taylor has this nice article at Forbes …..

Electricity Prices Soaring In Top Wind Power States

Electricity prices are soaring in states generating the most wind power, U.S. Energy Information Administration data show. Although U.S. electricity prices rose less than 3 percent from 2008-2013, the 10 states with the highest percentage of wind power generation experienced average electricity price increases of more than 20 percent.

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the 10 states in which wind power accounts for the highest percentage of the state’s electricity generation are:

Iowa – 27%

South Dakota – 26

Kansas – 19

Idaho – 16

Minnesota – 16

North Dakota – 16

Oklahoma – 15

Colorado – 14

Oregon – 12

Wyoming – 8

The wind power industry claims switching from conventional power to wind power will save consumers money and spur the economy. However, data from the top 10 wind power states show just the opposite. From 2008-2013electricity prices rose an average of 20.7 percent in the top 10 wind power states, which is seven-fold higher than the national electricity price increase of merely 2.8 percent.

The 2008-2013 price increases in the top 10 wind power states were:

Iowa – 16%
South Dakota – 25

Kansas – 26

Idaho – 34

Minnesota – 22

North Dakota – 23

Oklahoma – -2

Colorado – 14

Oregon – 16

Wyoming – 33

….. The electricity price increases in states producing the most wind power don’t tell the whole story. Federal and state taxpayer subsidies to wind power producers hide additional costs of wind power. The federal wind power Production Tax Credit (PTC), for example, gave wind power producers 2.3 cents for every kilowatt hour of wind power production last year. With U.S. retail electricity prices at 10.08 cents per kilowatt hour, the PTC allowed wind power producers to hide over 20 percent of wind power costs. This allowed the wind power industry to charge the American people still more money in backdoor tax bills, in addition to the higher retail electricity prices documented above.

Higher electricity prices in states producing the most wind power are taking a devastating toll on disposable incomes and the overall economy. …..

….. In Kansas, electricity consumers spent $3.8 billion on electricity in 2013. Had Kansas electricity prices risen at merely the national average from 2008-2013, however, Kansas electricity consumers would have spent only $3.1 billion on electricity. That’s $700 million in excess electricity costs in 2013. If we divide that up among Kansas’ 1.1 million households, the extra electricity costs drained $636 from the average Kansas household in 2013.

The wind power industry’s fallback position is wind power benefits state economies, despite rapidly rising electricity costs, because the switch from conventional power to wind power generates jobs within the wind power industry. …… Jobs created in the wind power industry come at the price of eliminating jobs in the conventional power industry.
Worse yet, the jobs shifted to the wind power industry fail to equal the number of jobs eliminated in other sectors of the economy for two important reasons.

First, wind power employs very few workers. After the tremendous start-up costs necessary to build wind turbines and place them in industrial wind farms, operational wind power facilities employ few workers. Nor does wind turbine manufacturing adds many jobs in top wind power states. Of the world’s top 10 wind turbine manufacturers, only one is located in the United States. Wind turbine manufacturing jobs are created in places like Germany, Denmark, and China more than in the United States.

Even among the top seven manufacturers of the wind turbines that are deployed in the United States, only one is located in the United States.

By contrast, conventional power plant operation requires far more workers than wind farms. More jobs are created in the conventional power industry even while electricity production costs go down. And unlike wind power jobs, nearly all U.S. conventional power plant manufacturing and operational jobs go to American workers – and especially to workers within the resident state of the conventional power plant.

Second, higher electricity prices caused by wind power kill jobs throughout the entire state and national economy. For example, when the average household in Kansas spends an extra $636 on electricity each year due to unnecessarily high electricity prices, that means the average Kansas household spends $636 less on other goods and services. The aggregate effect of such reduced spending in the Kansas economy (equaling $700 million in Kansas economy-wide reduced spending in 2013) eliminates thousands of jobs that would otherwise be created or sustained throughout all segments of the Kansas economy with higher consumer spending.

Any way you cut it, wind power is needlessly raising living costs, reducing living standards, and destroying American jobs. Fortunately, states can easily rectify the problem by repealing renewable power mandates and taxpayer subsidies that perpetuate higher electricity costs and widespread job destruction.

You can read the article in it’s entirety at the link at the top.

Essentially, our government taxed us to create the seed money for the wind turbine start-ups, which raises the costs of our electricity, even though it continues to be subsidized with our tax money, only to export more jobs overseas and slashes jobs at home.  It reduces our disposable income, cripples our economies and impoverishes us all. 

But, we said this would happen, over and over again we said it.  But, the sheeple didn’t respond.  And, so, we’re forced to be stuck with this insanity, mostly thanks to the people’s disengagement from discussing things which require just a modicum of thought.  Further, a special thanks must be given to the electric distribution industry, which knew this would happen, but, didn’t care enough to let the people know what was most certain to come their way.  They had the people’s trust but failed to lead and saw a grand opportunity to line their own pockets. 

Nicely played, leftards, we’re getting closer to your idiotic Utopia.

Shock News!!!!! Government Lies To Us About Deficit Spending!!!! Media Complicit In The Lies!!!!

image

image

Well, this pisses me off.  No, not the news, but, the fact that I procrastinated writing this post, and, well, I was beat to the punch.  That Blumer fellow at Newsbusters, and others got this.  Still, it’s some information which the people need to read. 

AP Relays WH Howler: $483B Deficit Is ‘Return to Fiscal Normalcy’

The White House is apparently feeling pretty full of itself over the fiscal 2014 federal budget result it has just reported.

Reacting to the news that this year’s deficit was “only” $483.4 billion, White House budget director Shaun Donovan crowed that “This is a return to fiscal normalcy.” The press, of course including Andrew Taylor at the Associated Press, has accepted all of this with little challenge, including the administration’s misleading “percentage of GDP” assertions, which completely ignore how much more the national debt has grown than the reported budget deficits.

Taylor went one step further, blatanty deceiving readers as to how much money the federal government borrows for every dollar it spends. Here is how the growth in the national debt and the government’s annual reported deficits have compared during the past two fiscal years:

image

This is the lunacy of our current government, the vile nature of the press, and the willful ignorance of the American people, all displayed here. 

I may, in the future go into more detail, but, for now, this suffices. 

You see, the government announces that it’s deficit ….. the money they spent beyond it’s revenues is decreasing.  Of course, this is a blatant lie.  This year, they failed to report $400 billion as deficit spending.  Our debt increased by $886 billion, but, our government said they “only” spent $483 billion more than they took in.  The reason for this is because it’s much more difficult to lie to the entire world as to how much debt we actually have, vs lying to the American people with the government’s propaganda machine AKA LameStream Media. 

The AP, or any other arms of the propaganda machine will happily repeat the lies it wants you to believe. 

Here’s part of the AP article referenced in the Newsbusters post.  Read the statements of the writer.  These are his thoughts and advocacy.  The parts without quotes or references.

Here’s an easier way to understand why the new numbers are good news: The government borrows 14 cents for every dollar it spends; six years ago, it was 40 cents.

“This is a return to fiscal normalcy,” White House budget director Shaun Donovan said.

But there could be trouble ahead.

The retirement of those in the baby boom generation is projected to spike the deficit in coming years. The Congressional Budget Office warns that the current trajectory is unsustainable and eventually could lead to a fiscal crisis.

For now, slow growth in government spending, including on health care, and increased tax revenues have combined to produce rosier deficit numbers.

Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said it’s an indication the economy is far healthier than when Obama became president in January 2009. Lew hailed “the most rapid reduction in the budget deficit since World War II.”

Obama inherited an economy in recession. The deficit topped $1 trillion for each of his first four years in office, including a record $1.4 trillion in 2009.

“Our economy is better off now than when the president took office by almost every measure,” Lew said.

Much of the slower growth in spending is due to lower-than-expected health care costs as well as a 2011 budget pact with Republicans that sharply curbed agencies’ operating budgets.

Obama also engineered a tax increase on upper bracket earners at the beginning of last year.

The improved deficit picture has sapped much of Washington’s urgency to curb red ink even more.

This isn’t “reporting” this is cheerleading and advocacy.  And, the writer, Andrew Taylor, is either too stupid to look at the debt increases to compare to the deficit, in which case he has no business writing about such things, or, he’s intentionally omitting this fact which demonstrates the dishonesty of this current administration.  But, this isn’t a question as to whether or not Andrew Taylor is stupid or dishonest, and it’s not a question as to whether or not all members of the LSM are stupid or dishonest, the answer to the question is “yes” to both. 

It’s simply inconceivable that all members of the LSM have failed to note the increases of our national debt and compared them to the reported deficits.  But, I’ve never once read an article from any part of the LSM questioning this.  Not one. 

To get to any such truth like this, one has to either look at the numbers themselves, or find places like this one or Newsbusters and the like. 

It’s a horrible shame.  And, it needs to change and quickly.

There’s more to read from the link at the top, but I’ll include this graphic because it torches Taylor’s idiocy about “14 cents”.

Because It Worked So Well The Last Time We Imported An Ebola Victim …….

Obama Plans to Let Ebola-infected Foreigners Into U.S. for Treatment

Washington, DC – Judicial Watch has learned that the Obama administration is actively formulating plans to admit Ebola-infected non-U.S. citizens into the United States for treatment.  Specifically, the goal of the administration is to bring Ebola patients into the United States for treatment within the first days of diagnosis.

It is unclear who would bear the high costs of transporting and treating non-citizen Ebola patients.  The plans include special waivers of laws and regulations that ban the admission of non-citizens with a communicable disease as dangerous as Ebola.

One source tells us that the Obama administration is keeping this plan secret from Congress. The source is concerned that the proposal is illegal; endangers the public health and welfare; and should require the approval of Congress.

He really, really does hate America.

A Clear Delineation …. Greg Orman: Talking About Abortion "Prevents Us From Talking About Other Important Issues" ……. Roberts “I am pro-life.”

image

Well, this is nice.  The people of Kansas have been shown they have a clear choice as far as the “Right-to-Life” issue goes. 

There are many cynics out there who would tell you there is no difference in politicians.  And, at times, it seems to be true.  However, it isn’t universally true. 

Roberts and Orman squared off in a debate this week.  On this issue, the candidates offered a clear choice.

Greg Orman: Talking About Abortion “Prevents Us From Talking About Other Important Issues”

In this week’s Kansas Senate debate between Greg Orman and incumbent Sen. Pat Roberts, the moderator asked the two about ultrasound laws. Independent candidate Greg Orman (there is no Democrat running in the race) discussed abortion by saying he doesn’t want to discuss it:

Orman: I think we spend a whole lot of time in this country talking about this issue and we have spent a lot of time over the last couple of decades talking about it. And I think it prevents us from talking about other important issues… I’m pro-choice.

Roberts responded quite emphatically, saying that he couldn’t quite believe Orman wants to “get past” the rights of the unborn:

Roberts: I am pro-life. I think you said we have to get past the issue, if I am correct. Get past the rights of the unborn? Get past the guarantee of life for those at the end of life? I don’t think we can say that with any degree of conscience… it is not settled, not by a long shot. That’s why I am proud to receive the endorsement from the National Right to Life, and the Kansans for Life. They support me and I’ll tell you one thing, I do not think we ought to get past this issue.

Give him heck, Pat!!!!

NFL Week 7!!!! Football!!!

Last week was horrendous to pick.  This week, there seems to be just a little more clarity, but, there are still some games which promise to be very competitive.

 

 

(2-4-0) Falcons

(4-2-0) Ravens  The Falcons can’t seem to get it going.  It’s strange because they have some outstanding weapons on offense, and there’s no reason for their defense to suck as badly as they do.  The Ravens, OTOH, seem to get the most out of the limited talent they have.  Note:  “Limited talent” being relative.  To simply make it to the NFL means that person has tremendous talent compared to the rest of the population.  That said, the Ravens do have exceptional talent at the Wide Receiver position.  The reason I mention this is because I would take the Falcon’s receivers over the Raven’s, any day.  It’s just that the Ravens are winning with their package.  I didn’t think Steve Smith would make the transition to the Ravens.  I thought his age would get the best of him.  It didn’t and he’s tearing it up.  Torrey Smith seems to becoming more involved of recent.  Those boys can fly!  While I’m on the subject of the Falcons, talent, and not using it properly ….. They have a running back who has some amazing numbers, but, they don’t give him the ball!!!  Antone Smith has carried the ball 13 times this year.  He’s gained an amazing 126 yards on the carries and has 2 TDs!  But, that’s not where the story ends with him.  He’s also caught 10 passes and has gained an amazing 220 yards from the 10 catches.  A running back!  Oh, yeh, and he’s scored 3 TDs with the catches.  Why are the Falcons losing?  Because their talent sits on the bench.  Give that boy the ball!!!  Ravens take this one.

 

(2-4-0) Titans  Well, at least this can be a competitive game, but, not in the way people like to watch.  Simply put, neither team is very good.  Usually, I’d go with the home team in these situations, but, I think as poor as the Titans are, they’re better than the Redskins, which irks me to no end.  How would you quell calls to change the Redskins’ name?  By winning as “Redskins”.  Instead, they’re a bunch of losers.  And, because they’re a bunch of losers, I think the Titans will take this one. 

(1-5-0) Redskins

 

 

(3-2-0) Seahawks  Poor Rams.  So far, their season is nothing but a bunch of “ifs” and “buts”.  Other than their opener, they’ve been in every game.  I think at some point they’ll turn the corner and start winning some of the close ones.  But, not today.  I expect the Seahawks to come into St. Louis with some attitude.  The loss last week to the Cowboys has to leave a bad taste in their mouth.  It wasn’t so much that they lost, but, how they lost.  This will be a game to watch, though.  Sometimes a team responds poorly to such events.  Other teams of good character use it as fuel.  I think the Seahawks will rise instead of letting the loss deflate them.  We’ll see.

(1-4-0) Rams

 

 

(3-2-0) Browns  Are the Browns for real?  ……. I don’t think so.  I think they’ve played some poor quality teams.  And, this week is no exception.  That said, I fully expect the Browns to be 4-2 after this week.  Someone tell me, again, why the Jags are not interested in Tebow suiting up for them?

(0-6-0) Jaguars

 

 

(3-1-1) Bengals

(4-2-0) Colts  This is one of the games to watch!  It should be a great game!  Luck is tearing up the league!  But, the Colts do have their weaknesses.  For some reason they seem unwilling to give up the notion that Richardson is of a starting running back caliber.  He isn’t.  Bradshaw is, hands-down, the better RB.  And, because they’re stubborn about this, the Bengals have the better running game.  How do you beat a team with a hot QB?  By running the ball, and keeping the ball out of the QBs hands.  I don’t believe the Colts defensive is good enough to stop a very good running game.  Will the Bengals recognize this?  IDK.  But, I do know championship teams are rarely one-dimensional.  That said, I think the Colts will prevail this week.

 

 

(2-4-0) Vikings

(3-3-0) Bills  Well, this is another yawner.  But, it’s timely for the Bills if they can win, and I think they will.  It’s just one game, but, 4-3 is so much better than 3-3. 

 

 

(2-3-0) Dolphins

(3-3-0) Bears  If the above game is a yawner, then this one is doubly so.  But, it is a very important game for the Dolphins.  If they’re going to have a decent season, then they need to get started.  But, watching them this year, they don’t seem so inclined.  The Bears need this win to stay in the hunt, and I think they’ll get it.  I hope not, but, I think they will.

 

 

(2-3-0) Saints

(4-2-0) Lions  Who would have thought the Saints would be in this position in week 7?  Megatron is gimpy, but, the Lions are still very tough at home, with or without him.  I’m picking the lions in this one.

 

 

(3-2-1) Panthers

(4-2-0) Packers  This is another great matchup.  The Panthers are a tough team, but, the Pack seems to be rolling of late ….. or are they?  The Packer wins have come against some mediocre or poor teams, so this will be a test for the Pack.   

 

 

(2-3-0) Chiefs

(5-1-0) Chargers  I really feel sorry for the Chiefs and their horrendous schedule.  That said, some of the reason why the Chiefs are 2-3 is because ….. well, the Chiefs.  Their loss to SF falls squarely on the coaching and their play selection.  Charles is one of those backs you have to keep feeding the ball.  The Chiefs also have found a find RB in Davis …….. you use these two to open up the pass, not the other way around!  And, now they’re going to SD, who are one of the hottest teams in the NFL.  While it certainly isn’t beyond the reach of the Chiefs to win this game, I don’t see it as likely. 

 

 

(4-1-0) Cardinals  This should be a nice exercise for Carson Palmer to get ready for a real NFL game next week.   

(0-5-0) Raiders

 

 

(3-3-0) Giants

(5-1-0) Cowboys  Well, the Cowboys are on fire!  But, this is a rivalry game.  Current standings mean very little in the Cowboy/Giant matchups.  I think the Cowboys have a fine team this year.  But, reaching back to the recesses of my memories, when the Cowboys were a perennial powerhouse in the NFL, they always had a game or two in which they just wouldn’t show up to play.  They would come off huge wins only to let down the next game …….. As a Cowboy fan, these are the games in which you just hold your breath and hope for the best.  Still, I think the ‘Boys will take this one.  

 

 

(4-2-0) 49ers

(4-1-0) Broncos  Woot!!!!  Another great matchup!  The 9ers and the Broncs!  There’s a lot of players to mention and things to note about this game, but, fans already know this stuff.  I’ll only point out that they’re playing at Mile High, and that’s a game changer. 

 

 

(3-3-0) Texans  Wow, it seems like only last year this game would have held great interest.  Today, the question is ‘which team is better at mediocrity?’  I think the Texans are the better team, but, that’s not saying much, this year.

(3-3-0) Steelers

 

 

 (1-6-0) Jets 25

 

 (5-2-0) Patriots 27  Brady has continued to quell critics after his slow start.  The Jets surprisingly made it a very close game.  A note about the Jets.  They’ve recently acquired Percy Harvin from the Seahawks.  The NY Jets is a place where people’s careers go to die.  Harvin is a fine talent and exciting player to watch, but, the Jets coaching staff isn’t very imaginative and they won’t have any idea how to use Harvin. 

 

Well, those are my picks for this week.  What do you think?

Gems 2014 — October 19 Scripture Selection: I Thessalonians 5

Guest post by Jeanette Andrade

October 19 Scripture Selection: I Thessalonians 5

Food for Thought: I Thes. 5:12, 13

My husband and I are so blessed to be surrounded by people who, in fulfillment of God’s Word, demonstrate constantly their appreciation for us and for the other church leaders. So today’s scripture references are certainly not intended to solicit more attention from the congregations we serve. On the contrary, may this devotional serve as a way to thank them for being so kind and unified in their love. However, this topic is very much worth mentioning for the benefit of the world-wide Church, especially as October is Pastors/Clergy Appreciation Month, in case there be some readers from other congregations who are unaware of the great value of those who offer their lives as living sacrifices to minister among us.

The Word gives us direction regarding the leaders within our churches, as we can see in today’s Food for Thought. We also find in Hebrews 13:7 and 17 the exhortation to “remember those who rule over you, who have spoken the Word of God to you, whose faith follow, considering the outcome of their conduct” and to “Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.” Another scripture that comes to mind is I Timothy 5:17 : “Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the Word and doctrine.”

There is one more thing to address concerning this topic. Among our readers, there may be many who believe today’s devotional does not apply to them since they are not submitted under any ministry. It should be pointed out that the Word doesn’t say IF you have a pastor or an elder, THEN honor him. (And, by the way, it also does not say that you should honor only the perfect ones, or only the ones you agree with one hundred percent; those kind do not exist.) Those who have no minister to honor should find one and submit to that ministry (See Heb. 10:24, 25). Not having an minister in your life, you miss out on something very important that the Lord intended for you. Personally, I can testify that one of the elements that makes our life complete is that we can count on the love, guidance, and support of our ministers. Yes, we could muddle along without a minister in our life, but it certainly would not be as easy, and it certainly isn’t the way God planned it.

Ministers are not just for delivering sermons on holidays and marrying and burying people. They provide an invaluable “spiritual covering” for the members of their congregation. Therefore, it is good and fitting to give honor to whom honor is due (Rom. 13:7), and not just during one particular month.

A Couple Of Hysterical Clowning Of Climate Alarmists!!!!

This stuff is delicious!!!!

Twitchy alerts us to a conservative group winning  a video contest put on by leftards …… MoveOn and MayDay …..

Upset: Conservative group American Commitment wins MoveOn video contest in a landslide

As Twitchy reported yesterday, progressive groups MoveOn and MayDay hosted a super-awesome 30-second video contest “to wake up America to the crisis of big money in our politics.” It must have been a surprise to the organizers when a video by conservative group American Commitment dominated the voting by a huge margin.

MoveOn and MayDay changed the rules on the fly, pushing back the voting deadline by a day, just enough time for MoveOn to send out an email blast to its members.

The video contest was about the evils of big money in politics.

You can watch the video at the links.  Here’s the backstory for the video.

Steyer recently tried to convince people he was a climate nutter, for some reason.  Instead, he’s just a run of the mill leftard. 

Still, this is fantastic irony! 

But, it doesn’t stop there!!!!!  From HuffPo …..

Keystone XL Oil Pipeline Owner Wins Climate Leadership Award

WASHINGTON -– The company that wants to build the Keystone XL pipeline was recognized this week for leadership on climate change -– to the shock of environmental activists.

Alberta-based TransCanada, which has been seeking permission to build the 1,660-mile pipeline from Canada’s oil sands to refineries in Texas, was included as a corporate climate leader on the Carbon Disclosure Project’s Climate Performance Leadership Index 2014. The Carbon Disclosure Project, or CDP, is a United Kingdom-based nonprofit that works with companies to tally and report their greenhouse gas emissions. TransCanada was one of five energy sector companies included on the “A List” in this year’s report.

The report notes that the company has set targets for emission reductions, and includes a quote from TransCanada: “Our business strategy is informed by the risks and opportunities from climate change regulations, physical climate parameters and other climate-related developments such as uncertainty in social drivers … we anticipate that most of our facilities will be subject to future regulations to manage industrial [greenhouse gas] emissions.”

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!  Leftards’ heads must be exploding!!!!!
