From Nobel Prize Winner Milton Friedman, as quoted in "Time for Truth," by William Simon, in 1978:

 "We've always had a finite amount of energy...We had finite supplies of wood in the early pioneer days. How did we make the transition from using wood to using coal, from using coal to using oil, from using oil to using natural gas? HOW IN GOD'S NAME DID WE MAKE THAT TRANSITION WITHOUT A FEDERAL ENERGY AGENCY?"  [emphasis added]

...And a little timeless wisdom from the great man, in perhaps his most famous illustration:

Here is a dead, smelly rat...I'll call him "Brett Kimberlin."

What would you like me to do with him?

Undecided, huh? Well, here is a strong, sleek snake. I'll call him "Blogosphere."

Now what would you like me to do with Brett Kimberlin? Aaaaaahhhh, I thought so!! Well, the people have spoken...Say goodnight, Mr. Kimberlin!:

All kidding aside, this little rat never really hurt a person. Brett Kimberlin, however, has been convicted of multiple bombings and perjury, and now he feels entitled to cyber-stalk people whose shoes he's not fit to shine. He feels that the money of the Tides Foundation, Barbra Streisand, Soros, and the demented TrustFund Left will protect him from whatever filthy misdeeds he dreams up.

But don't bet on it. Here's another rat that reminds me of Kimberlin, look how confidently he swaggers into that little box, heheh!

Surely Brett Kimberlin has never read the following verses of Proverbs 16, words of wisdom from King Solomon: 

5 The Lord detests all the proud of heart.
    Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished.

18 Pride goes before destruction,
    a haughty spirit before a fall.

25 There is a way that appears to be right,
    but in the end it leads to death.

27 A scoundrel plots evil,
    and on their lips it is like a scorching fire.

Note:  No living creatures were harmed in the production of this video.

UPDATE:  Afantastic number of fantastic bloggers are doing SOOOOO much today on this issue, there's no way I can come close to keeping up with even listing them, but one of the best is Mizzzz Marezilla, catch her at her lair!!

If the Baathi would do this to their fellow Arab Muslim brothers,
imagine what they would do to Joooooooos...

Things that make you go "hmmmmm."

Here are these 6 poor blokes, horribly mutilated and murdered by a totalitarian regime that has had the support of the international "Left," as well as Arab nationalist regimes, for more than 40 years.  Yet to these same forces, the great enemy of these blokes is of course...Israel.

It may take a looooong time, but reality eventually destroys every falsehood.

One of the most brilliant analysts of the world in the past few years has been David Goldman, who wrote pseudonymously for several years as "Spengler," at Asian Times.  He now has a regular column at PJM, and an outstanding discussion on the jihad and conflicting strategies, tactics and assumptions thereunder was had there just over the past few days.  I added the following few words, but I wd commend the entire thoughtful, collegial conversation, "Bernard Lewis' Valediction,"  to anyone with a few minutes and an interest in the subject:
1–If we HAVE a strong strategic view (i.e., Islamic culture/civilization as Lewis has identified it is a world-historical and strongly negative phenomenon, comparable to communism except that it has endured and spread for 20 times as long), then it makes perfect sense to defend dissidents and minorities within that culture. And to refrain from making their positions intolerable by crude calls for all-out conflict. Subtle calls are quite sufficient.
2–The revanchist brand of Khomeinist Islam arose almost parallel with the collapse of Western cultural self-confidence. The caliphate had been shrunken, slashed and divvied up by the infidels for ~200 years before WWI–as late at 1920 Winston Churchill was planning (perhaps over-optimistically) to liberate Constantinople. So this entity is obviously not unbeatable. Basically, for ~50 years, WE’VE BEEN BEATING OURSELVES.
3–The Darwinian genius of Islam has been it’s social dynamic, enshrined in the shariah laws, whereby over time the incentives, both negative and positive, are all but irresistible for infidels TO BECOME MUSLIMS. Then they’re indeed sucked into the Borg-ian maw, and their strengths are turned into the conquest/conversions of OTHER infidels. This entire process is supported by laws of inheritance and legal supremacy tiers that make apartheid look like a children’s game. To say nothing about the universal death penalty for leaving the faith.
4–The weakness of this system is its hostility to human intellect, and happiness. That is why science and technology are snuffed out wherever Islam grows, while refugees increase. Before the advent of the scientific revolution, such societies could not flourish in terms of numbers, as famine and disease stabilized them. But since ~1850, it became possible for a rather small # of foreign technicians to provide technology for sanitation and medicine to enable a population boom. As long as food cd be expanded (also supported by foreign technology), an “Islamic” society cd grow in numbers without reforming its anti-intellect roots. (BTW, prior to the scientific revo, Islam WAS able to expand, via the ancient Arabian technique of pure plunder).
5–We have been living in a unique interim for ~50 years, whereby our superior-in-all-forms-of-strength civilization hs chosen to go hands-off, except to help Muslim states, with the only requirement being a steady oil-flow from the Persian Gulf. Oh, hands-off except for the continued development of hospitals, agriculture, water plants, even a few weapons factories. This cd have gone un indefinitely had the Islamic world managed to keep its hostility under wraps.
6–The Internet now allows dumb shmoes like us to see directly this hostility. We do not like it. These people come into our living rooms and kick over the furniture and rape our daughters and throw gasoline all over the house before lighting it on fire, and then leave and boast about how they will destroy our “decadent” civilization…We don’t like it.
The breaking point is approaching. The interim is fading. Westerners are slowly, slowly coming to understand that this ancient, barbaric civilization is simply incompatible with our own. Or any other.

When you look up "he's got his number" in the dictionary, you see Sam Vaknin talking about Hussein Obama...He began to study Obama in 2008, when he did the above interview...This 2d interview is about 3 years later. 

This week, a lot of people were surprised that Obama decided to go public with his "personal support for gay marriage" EXACTLY THE NEXT DAY once the voters of North Carolina voted down gay marriage by a 61-39 massacre.  This while North Carolina is a state he supposedly considers an important swing state he needs to win in November.

So why the spit in the peoples' face?

Because Obama is a malignant narcissist.  He cannot STAND the idea of being contradicted, or refuted, or turned down.  So when it happens...well, rather than address this electoral stomping and figure out a way to minimize the damage, Obama is impelled to strike back directly at the people who have contradicted him...the voters who oppose gay marriage, too bad if they happen to live in a swing state.  (BTW, NC is as much a swing state after Obama won it as Mass. was after Reagan won it twice in a row...It's NOT.)

For those of you who are seeking to predict Obama's behavior over both long and short-term, you need to absorb the teachings of Sam Vaknin.

Hey, here's how much an earlier wise non-Communist leader loved the slogan "FORWARD":

"Forward! Forward! Under the banner of the Viet Minh Front, move forward courageously!”

--Ho Chi Minh, "Appeal for General Insurrection," North Vietnam, August 17, 1945

Wow, 3 "forwards" in one line!! Our Dear Leader is in such good company. And look how great the march FORWARD worked out for the citizens of Hue, in 1968--Happy New Year/Tet!:

This time it's an idealistic Norwegian socialist lad who steals the Israeli flag (private property by the way, stolen by an unmasked person on video, you think anyone will be charged?) on the peaceful shining happy streets of Stavanger. Happy May Day, komrades!!  Jeez, if they're not careful about enforcing law and order in the land of the fjords, who knows, some knucklehead with a gun might just run wild and kill a bunch of people, while risking no more than 22 years in prison...

BTW, a BIG hats-off to the Norwegian FpU, who bravely dared to fly the Israeli flag inside that benighted land so poisoned by Jooooo-hatred. Acc. to the great GatesofVienna: The FpU (Fremskrittspartiets Ungdom) is the youth wing of the Norwegian FrP (Fremskrittspartiet, “The Progress Party”), which promotes free-market policies and criticizes mass immigration. Is anyone surprised that the FrP has been severely scapegoated in Norway ever since the massacre last summer?

H/T to GoV for this story, and all the outstanding work they do out of what is rapidly becoming the [morally] Dark Continent.
