More tidbits to chew on by Vegas Art Guy

Today is certainly a target rich environment for bloggers! After perusing all the news fit to print, or not. I decided to focus on these two nuggets.

The first nugget is the fact that Hugo Chavez, the fearless lover of democracy and all things Anti-Bush is going to re-write the constitution so that he go from El Presidente to Thug for life.

As the article on reports:

"Chavez, who is seeking to transform Venezuelan society along socialist lines, unexpectedly announced late Tuesday that he would unveil his project before crowds of supporters at the National Assembly. He predicted it would bring renewed political upheaval to Venezuela.
Chavez's political allies firmly control the National Assembly responsible for reviewing his proposal as well as the Supreme Court
. His critics accuse him of becoming obsessed with power and seeking to become a lifelong leader just like his close friend Fidel Castro.
Chavez rejects allegations that he poses a threat to democracy.

The Venezuelan leader predicted that most people would support his proposal to reform the constitution, but he also forecast the beginning of a tenacious political battle with the nation's opposition.

"I have faith that we are going to convince the immense majority of Venezuelans of the necessity and the immediate benefits that this is going to bring the country," Chavez said during a televised interview."

Who exactly is going to benefit from this Hugo ole buddy? Certainly not the average Venezuelan, so that leaves you and your political allies. This is why our founders made it so difficult to change the Constitution of the US, to avoid horsecrap like this.

Power truly does corrupt.

The second offering is dedicated to the Goracle and his loyal followers regarding the inconvient truth about his inconvient truth...

A Washington, D.C., resident recently came across a 1922
article that revealed early signs of climate change.

John Lockwood found a 1922 article in The Washington Post when he
was conducting research at the Library of Congress. The article's headline read: "Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt," according to a report in the Washington Times.

The article reports "great masses of ice have now been replaced by moraines of earth and stones," and "at many points well-known glaciers have entirely disappeared."

Lockwood said he's discovered other articles from the 1920s and 1930s on the same
subject."I had read of the just-released NASA estimates, that four of the 10 hottest years in the U.S. were actually in the 1930s, with 1934 the hottest of all," Lockwood said."

I love it when reality intrudes on the fantasy land that many on the left live in. Last I checked humans are responsible for about 3.5% of the CO2 that is released into the atmosphere every year. I do agree that we need to take better care of our planet, but I refuse to fall for the global warming claptrap that is eminating from the left. Go hug your tree and let rational people deal with this...
