Gun crimes may have fallen by 70 percent in the last two decades, but by gosh, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., was Johnny-on-the-spot to push gun control after the tragedy in Newtown, Conn.
Manchin had the political sense to wait a few days.
Along with his lack of common decency, Whitehouse lacks common sense
Atmospheric science is in its infancy.
Whitehouse's claim that global warming causes tornadoes is the polar opposite of the claim back in the 1970s that global cooling caused tornadoes.
Writing for the April 28, 1975, edition of Newsweek, Peter Gwynne cited a particularly heavy year of tornadoes in an article entitled, "Global cooling."
"Climatologists are pessimistic that political leaders will take any positive action to compensate for the climatic change, or even to allay its effects," Gwynn wrote.
"They concede that some of the more spectacular solutions proposed, such as melting the Arctic ice cap by covering it with black soot or diverting arctic rivers, might create problems far greater than those they solve."
Thank God there were skeptics in the Senate who had the intestinal fortitude to stop the Whitehouses of the 1970s from destroying the polar ice cap.
Weather seems cyclical to me. But one thing is constant: The attempts by liberals to exploit those changes in the weather and tragedies to advance their agenda.
Such exploitation of the deaths of innocents is sickening. I call on liberals to denounce him.
