Oh For ….. Of All The Stupid Utterings…… It Couldn’t Possibly Be Being In The Wrong Place/Time


‘Global warming is to blame,’ says veteran climber Pat Falvey

Veteran Irish explorer Pat Falvey believes global warming was to blame for the lightning strike which killed Ian McKeever.

About 1,000 Irish people climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania every year, but Mr Falvey said this is the first time there has been such a tragic accident on the imposing African peak.
Mr Falvey told The Ray D’Arcy Show yesterday he believes the world’s changing climate caused the “freak” weather which hit Mr McKeever and his group as they climbed Kilimanjaro amid torrential downpours.
“It was quite freaky and probably it’s because of the global warming climate change and it happened in an area that he was misfortunate to be in,” he said. “It was a place called Lava Towers which sticks up in the air like a sore thumb. It is a tower of rock in the lunar landscape section.

No, I don’t have anything else to say about this massive bit of stupidity.

    This, my friends, is the delusion ignorance obsession we’re up against.

    You know, it’s not so much that we’re winning the global warming debate by scoring more points. We’re winning because alarmists keep scoring points for us. All we have to do is just let them broadcast their nonsense. The rational person looks at the whole “global warming causes everything” mantra and unceremoniously dismisses them as fools.

    Mr Obama says:
    “Section 533 is an unnecessary and ill-advised provision, as the military already appropriately protects the freedom of conscience of chaplains and services members,”

    You said about the same thing for Obamacare!
    Then you let an unelected official [ Kathleen Sebelius ] decide / define what / who conscious protection was / applies.

    The “protection” you claimed exists has forced religious organizations to dispense abortion inducing drugs and contraception and provide sterilization.

    The “protection” has allowed a $1 surcharge to cover abortions in healthcare policies despite religious objections.

    The “protection” has Obama claiming he will not support DOMA although it was signed into law by a Democrat president.

    The one thing you and your administration has taught us: In Chicago Politics … Don’t trust a spoken promise.

    Section 533 – the clause protecting chaplains.

    The section reads, “No member of the Armed Forces may — require a chaplain to perform

    any rite, ritual, or ceremony that is contrary to the conscience, moral principles, or religious

    beliefs of the chaplain; or discriminate or take any adverse personnel action against a

    “Plaintiff has shown that abiding by the mandate will substantially burden his exercise of religion,”


    A quote in the above article has me searching for verification:
    “The HHS Mandate requires employers to pay for health insurance that covers abortion-inducing drugs, contraception and sterilization under threat of draconian fines. It also requires employers to educate their employees about use of those drugs,” the group said.

    Global warming caused me to stub my toe. This problem cannot go undealt with any longer….

    It’s true every time falvey mentions global warming in public another €1000 fattens his back pocket. I heard him on the radio only yesterday and it was hilarious to hear him throw in global warming even though it had nothing to do with the subject being discussed. If the man had a proper job instead of getting handouts to go galavanting around the North Pole he would have plenty things to worry about instead of what caused the weather that killed his friend.
