Forget “green” jobs: real energy sources create real jobs

Ohio shale drilling spurs job hopes in Rust Belt

A rare sight in hard-luck Youngstown, a new industrial plant, has generated hope that a surge in oil and natural gas drilling across a multistate region might jump-start a revival in Rust Belt manufacturing.

The $650 million V&M Star mill, located along a desolate stretch that once was a showcase for American industry, is to open by year’s end and produce seamless steel pipes for tapping shale formations.

It will mean 350 new jobs in Youngstown, a northeast Ohio city that is struggling with 11 percent unemployment.

There’s a lot more at the link above, detailing many different ways that the going after shale oil in the midwest will create real jobs, not loony-toons-pie-in-the-sky “green” jobs that Obama has been selling out of his trunk (at a huge markup) after stealing them from industries that were doing something useful and marketable.

How did he steal the jobs? If you have to ask, you haven’t been paying attention. When you over-regulate, over-spend, and over-borrow, you steal jobs. It’s very simple.

Obama’s policies have helped to create a thousand losers for every winner he personally picked. And even his picked winners are losing.  When generally supporter-of-all-things-liberal Google is pulling out of an obvious Goongoggle (read it out loud) because it’s a loser they picked in a moment of obvious miscalculation, it’s clear that everyone is catching on, except maybe Obama.

In the meantime, it looks hopeful that some people in Ohio may get to go back to work.  And Obama will have had nothing to do with it other than to just get out of the way.

If he does.

From Conception to Birth

It is a rather amazing fact that the more science learns the harder it is to deny a Creator. We are now able to look inside the womb in ways that have never before been known.  What is being revealed is but a confirmation of those words penned a very long time ago, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well” (Psalms 139:14).  What the author, King David, clearly understood is being underscored for us now through science.  And if the case is so clearly made then it demands of us to reassess what we believe to be true about life and ending life though abortion.  This is, as Alan Keyes so often states, an absolute moral imperative.  But before the issue can become an imperative for our society it must become one for us as individuals.  I hope you will consider this while watching and listening to this video.

Garlow Presents “Courage Award” to Sen. Ruben Diaz

Dr. Jim Garlow, Chairman of ReAL, on September 22, 2011 in New York City, presented to Democrat New York State Senator Ruben Diaz the “Ruben Diaz Courage Award” for his exceptional defense of moral principles in the midst of forceful opposition.  Senator Diaz had to stand against the massive pressure of the Democratic machine and the June 24, 2011 behind-the-scenes shenanigans of Republican Senator Leader Dean Skelos and several GOP Senators who sold out their values, violating the promises they made during their campaigns regarding defending traditional, natural marriage.  The “Ruben Diaz Courage Award” will be presented periodically to other elected officials who demonstrate unusual fortitude when defending biblical and moral values.

The next time someone claims to you that conservative Christians are really just Republicans first, and see their religion as a way to gain support for their party, refer them to this story.

How many Democrats have had the courage to stick to Biblical values in their political efforts? In the end, not many. But when they do, conservative Christians applaud them, out loud and in public, even when it is Republicans who tried to stop the right thing from being done.

Test Shows Awareness, Consciousness for Brain-Damaged Patients

New research using a portable electrode test suggests nearly 20 percent of those previously determined to be vegetative state may be consciously aware of their surroundings and even able to communicate through easily detectable brain signals.

I could have told them that. I go to faculty meetings.  I’m certain there are some broccoli in the English department.

Don’t Sweat It

It’s getting cooler in the USA, not warmer. See discussion in Watts Up With That.

Exit question: will all the people who signed onto panic stricken policy solutions to the non-existent problem of global warming recant someday? Or is the science so conclusive in their minds that they can afford to ignore the science? What, that last sentence didn’t make any sense?

Neither do they.
