Is MoveOn.org Really MorOn.org?
Based on an emailing to their "members" -- yes!
In a quick response to McCain's announcement of Gov. Sarah Palin to be his running mate, the folks at MoveOn.org demonstrated once again how out of touch they are with normal people.
Their message begins:No, that is utter nonsense that no sane person need see. But then, this is what we've come to expect from the Moron.org folks ... er, MoveOn.org folks. (Well, is there really any difference?)
Let's take a look at their "points" they claim everyone should know:
Sane People Comment: Obama has no more experience as a legislator as Palin has in executive positions (he may have less). Obama has ZERO executive experience, and HE wants to be chief executive of our country! Obama hasn't even run a lemonade stand. Let him run for Governor of Illinois and let's see how he does. MoveOn cites the biased Wikipedia as their authority for their comment.

Sane People Comment: An infant is not responsible for the actions of its parents. Palin does prefer Adoption to Abortion. She and her husband, Todd, rebuffed suggestions she abort her last pregnancy when it was determined the child would be born with abnormalities. Her son was born in April with Down Syndrome. In an interview with Glenn Beck, she revealed that she and her husband believe it a privilege that God entrusted them with their special son. What a refreshing view. On the other hand, Obama has taken the firm position that even if a child survives a late-term abortion, it must be killed to "respect" the mother's "choice" for an abortion (despite her having successfully aborted her pregnancy). Only a monster would take such a position. MoveOn cites "NARAL Pro-Choice America" for its authority.

Sane People Comment: Whatever "extreme" one thinks Pat Buchanan might represent, it is not nearly as extreme as Obama's voting record is on the Left! Obama, who remains close friends to a Leftist domestic terrorist, has the most extreme Leftist voting record of any presidential candidate in history. George McGovern looks like a moderate next to Barack Hussein Obama. We can see how desparate this crowd is to sling any invective Palin's way, even if they have to create one from nothing! MoveOn's authority for this silliness is The Nation, hardly a journal of objective rational political thought.

Sane People Comment: Palin's view is that creation should be taught as an alternate theory to evolution (a theory which has never been proven). It is amazing how some can be so enamored with things they don't know. Whatever happened to putting the known facts on the table and letting people decide? Palin's position likely resonates with more people than the secular elitists at MoveOn.org. Palin doesn't argue for exclusive teaching, she believes teaching should be inclusive and cover all widespread views. I guess that's old-fashioned in what passes for the minds of the MoveOn.org folks. Their source, Anchorage Daily News.

Sane People Comment: This is one of Palin's strongest points! Anyone who bothers to study climate change will quickly come to the same conclusion as Palin. The folks at MoveOn.org apparently haven't bothered to notice that global temperature trends have been going down since 2002 and have dropped precipitously in the past two years (giving up as much as was gained in the past 100 years!). There are many fine books that one can read to learn the truth about the global warming scam. You will not see or hear the truth about climate change in the Obama media. A good online place to look for the latest and bes information is at http://www.icecap.us (Meteorologist Joe D'Aleo's site). Personally, I've spent most of my life enjoying the study of meteorology, climatology, and geology as hobby sciences. As a mathematician, I was trained in the scientific method and have always applied it to scientific issues. Any theory that has failed even a single test is invalid. The human-caused climate change theory has failed many tests and, scientifically as well as observationally, has been proven to be invalid. To believe humans can significantly affect climate is dangerous because if enought people believe the propaganda it could result in costly government programs that yield absolutely no benefit. There has never been any time in Earth's long climate history when any "greenhouse gas" has been a significant force for climate "change" -- but greenhouse gases do play an important role in maintaining Earth's average temperature high enough to sustain plant and animal life. There is a huge distinction between baseline atmospheric warming and climate change, a distinction evidently lost on the shallow minds of the MoveOn.org folks. The source for MoveOn.org's bullet? The Huffington Post. Talk about the blind leading the blind.

Sane People Comment: Palin's position is why she is such a brilliant choice. She's absolutely right about renewables. They will not be able to supply a meaningful portion of the energy needs of this country, either for electric generation or as transportation fuels, for a very, very long time. Only a Leftist could believe that a government mandate is all it takes to completely change the laws of physics and economics. Our only sane policy is to lift restrictions (not standards) on using our domestic coal, oil, and gas reserves to get this country much less dependent on foreign imports from dictators and terrorist states (to continue that is pure idiocy). Let the marketplace find the best solutions for alternate energy sources (e.g., methanol from biomass or coal might well be a much better approach than ethanol from corn). Let the profit motive do what it does best ... provide a needed commodity at a competitive best price. Government regulations simply bring misery, as many are finding out with soaring electric bills and high gasoline prices (thanks to our short-sighted Congress). There is absolutely no reason to list the polar bear as "endangered" as they have been increasing in numbers for decades and have survived many natural cycles of Arctic sea ice melt in the long history of climate. Routinely, pictures of polar bear are cropped to make it appear that they are in distress, when they are generally either just doing their thing or being annoyed by the rotator wash from an overhead helicopter designed to help the photographer stage the picture. MoveOn.org's source: The Sierra Club. Another case of one extremist group taking their material from another. Folks, the Sierra Club is not what it used to be. It has been taken over by radical Leftists to pursue an agenda that is not in the best interests of the USA.

Sane People Comment: Well, one thing is for certain. McCain spent far more time vetting Palin than Obama spent vetting Hillary Clinton! Briliant choices don't always require enormous study. I suppose the MoveOn.org folks don't realize that (a) McCain has a staff to help him with the vetting process, and, (b), McCain doesn't inform MoveOn.org of all his actions.

The really pathetic thing about MoveOn.org is that those bullets constitute the most damaging evidence they could dredge up to attack Sarah Palin. If the consequences of this election weren't so serious, MoveOn.org's message would be laughable.

Biography - Bob Webster
Bob Webster, a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s) is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.
A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
