Ignore the outrage. Instead understand why United assaulted a passenger.

Love the addition of the Airplane clip at the end. Priceless. The rest of the United story is rather appalling, if I do say so myself.

Summary: Yesterday’s incident at United reveals much about the changes happening to America. First, let’s sort through the stories to see what really happened. Then let’s skip the cheap hand-waving and draw conclusions that can help us understand events and so begin to retake control of this nation.

The Friendly Skies of United Airlines

The New York Times tells the story, somewhat incoherently. United Express loaded a plane with passengers. Then four employees arrived, needed seats. United was unwilling to offer sufficient money to induce passengers to leave, and so ordered four to leave the craft. Three left, but a doctor refused — saying he had to be in Louisville to treat patients. United officials decided to call the Department of Aviation police (not the airline’s security) to remove him.

The man was sitting in a window seat. Officers grabbed his arms, dragged him screaming across the armrests and along the floor  — unconscious — off the aircraft. Later the passenger…

Michael Mann Adjusts the Climate “Turning Point” Out to 2020

Watts Up With That?

Professor Michael Mann, inventor of the climate Hockey Stick, has just shamelessly shifted the dreaded climate tipping point to 2020.

The Single Shining Hope to Stop Climate Change

Michael E. Mann Apr 09, 2017

Mann is a professor of atmospheric science and director of the Earth System Science Center at Penn State University and co-author of The Madhouse Effect: How Climate Change Denial Is Threatening Our Planet, Destroying Our Politics, and Driving Us Crazy.

Science is under attack at the very moment when we need it most. President Donald Trump’s March 28 executive order went much further than simply throwing a lifeline to fossil fuels, as industry-funded congressional climate change–deniers have done in the past. It intentionally blinded the federal government to the impacts of climate change by abolishing an interagency group…

A Quick Note About Mental Health

A Quick Note About Mental Health

Uncommon Graces

If an oncologist is diagnosed with cancer, does he forget how to treat it? Does he forget the symptoms? Is he any less certified to treat cancer patients? No.

He knows everything about his illness and how to treat it, but legally, he can’t. So goes the same for those of us who struggle with mental health and are intellectually high-functioning, no matter how socially isolated.

The doctor learned about his illness in medical school. I learned about mine from thirty-four years of living in the field of practice.

People think if I can use all the right terms and string words together just right, I don’t struggle. They think if I can be as “successful” as carefully selected social media highlights would suggest, I should smile a little bit more and cry a little less.

If I reach out to professionals and I sound like I know what…

Climate “Science” is Pseudo-Science; A Point-by-Point Proof

CO2 is Life

8a937b7c2319be52c09a40bf74d6c400Point 1) Climate Science started with the conclusion that man-made CO2 causes warming, and then set about to find anecdotal evidence to support that claim. Evidence of this is that none of the computer models can demonstrate that relationship, nor do any properly run experiments. Additionally, conflicting data like the N Pole losing ice and the S Pole gaining ice is simply glossed over, and the focus is directed towards the observation that favors the conclusion. Lastly, only the “adjusted” data sets show warming. If adjustments are made for the heat island effect and solar radiation, there is no notable warming. Long-term, consistent, continual thermometer data show no warming either.

Point 2) Climate “science” is extremely hostile towards anyone that is critical, and the hostility is well documented. This hostility is so endemic to the climate alarmists that they verbally smear opponents during congressional testimony, and…
