Bush administration to Gov. Palin: Beluga whale in Alaska is endangered

Oct 17, 2008 | Posted by: Sunnydale | Full story: latimesblogs.latimes.com

Alaska's Gov. Sarah Palin has questioned scientific evidence that the beluga whale population in the waters near Anchorage is declining. In fact last summer she urged the federal government not to list the whale as endangered, citing concerns of what a listing might do to the Cook Inlet economy.

Any evidence that cannot be questioned is not scientific. The essence of science is questioning.

I can't blame Palin for having her own theory of the universe as no one in the world know the answer.

Much like global warming, many factors contribute to it... but we have narrowed to a theory that excessive development and human activities are the major causes.

I tend to believe the theory too. I have provide my theory of solution to global warming here:
1) significant reduction in human population
2) prolong economic depression

What that tells is our economy has been a big role in global warming!!!

I watched the video the other day of the aerial killing of wolves in Alaska. How disgusting and downright sadistic. The wolves don't have a chance. The only reason the "First Dude" could possbily want Alaska to seced from the United States is so that they don't have to follow the rules. They want to have their own sets of rules, and guess what? That will be what will happen if we have McCain-Palin in the White House. That would mean all wildlife, including the polar bear, will be removed from the endangered list. Furthermore, the United States will end up being on the endangered list, too.

That's why I voted against this wish. I would vote a hundred more times if I could find somewhere that would let me.LOL

It's over for Obama.

His "crown jewel" health care plan just imploded under it's own weight in Hawaii!

The nations 1st and only attempt an universal style health care for children was shut down today.

Basically, everyone started dropping their kids off their plan and tried putting them on the government funded plan which sunk the entire program.

Sound familiar?
Yes, Obama's fantasy gov health care plan is eerily similar. Claims you can keep your plan but he's too naive to understand that millions would simply drop their plan to get so called "free" or "subsidized" ones from the government!

Just another example of a guy that gets it wrong far too often.

If you grow up in Hawaii and live in an affluent neighborhood. You don't grow up with a single mom on food stamps,
If you drink and smoke and get in trouble when you are a teen. We say so what? He was a kid. But when you are college age and drink and use cocain and your mentor is a Communist named Frank Davis, We say Whew!
When a young man goes to college and runs for office he usually releases his records if he has nothing to hide. Not Obama.
When Obama went to NY City to Harvard it was with a letter of recommendation from Khalid Al Monsour a friend of the Saudi Prince al Talal. You wonder because Khalid is a black Muslim extremist.
When a young man in Harvard becomes the president of Harvard Law Review you wonder why and how? He never wrote anything for the zine. Then after Harvard he went to Chicago and worked as a community organizer. He then went to work for a law office. He met Michelle who worked for the Mayor Richard Daley. That's right the same one that had a newspaper and they call his network of influencial friends the Chicago Political machine. Then Obama quit work to write his book. He bought a 1.6 million dollar house in Hyde Park from Tony Rezo. He sat on a board the Woods Fund with Bill Ayers a known terrorist. Questions Questions huh? Then with the help of his new friends he runs for state Representative. He is a Senator for 145 days and quits to run for President. He did not vote 133 times. Is anybody struck with his lack of experience and lack of working? He is a socialist and will have to pay for all his programs. You will end up paying 65% of your check in taxes.

universal health care is a joke - an empty promise - in capitalism unless we want to convert to socialism. it's just a tactic to collect more votes by politicians. let's be more realistic. we won't get any tax cut as our gov has no money. realistic expectation: service cut & tax hike.
