Manbearpig Terrorists

Via Pajamas Media:
Spain’s Dr. Gabriel Calzada — the author of a damning study concluding that Spain’s “green jobs” energy program has been a catastrophic economic failure — was mailed a dismantled bomb on Tuesday by solar energy company Thermotechnic.

Says Calzada:

Before opening it, I called [Thermotechnic] to know what was inside … they answered, it was their answer to my energy pieces.

Dr. Calzada contacted a terrorism expert to handle the package. The expert first performed a scan of the package, then opened it in front of a journalist, Dr. Calzada, and a private security expert.

The terrorism consultant said he had seen this before:

This time you receive unconnected pieces. Next time it can explode in your hands.

Dr. Calzada added:

[The terrorism expert] told me that this was a warning.

For those who think of Spain as a land of bullfighters and beaches at Ibiza, remember they were a fascist dictatorship for decades under Franco, and have their own home-grown terrorists with which to contend. So Spain knows a thing or two about terrorism and tyranny. The security expert consulted was one who fought against the ETA.

Un colaborador de EXPANSIÓN, amenazado por sus artículos sobre la energía solar
Gabriel Calzada, colaborador habitual de EXPANSIÓN, recibió una bomba simulada, enviada por una empresa fotovoltaica que pretendía así intimidarle por sus artículos críticos sobre la energía solar.

El agente de seguridad privada recomendó no abrirlo tras comprobar que se trataba de dos objetos metálicos difíciles de interpretar. Pidió ayuda a una persona con más experiencia quien tras un breve visionado de la pantalla del escáner creyó saber de qué se trataba y procedió a abrirlo con cuidado ante la atenta mirada del guarda de seguridad, Lorenzo Ramírez (antiguo redactor de Expansión) y el propio Gabriel Calzada. De la caja salieron un filtro de gasoil y una pieza con rosca que podía adaptarse al filtro.
For those who don't read Spanish, it's pretty much what PJ media relates to us.
The title is "A Contributor of Expansion was Threatened for his Articles on Solar Energy". You can go use babelfish for a robot translation that isn't perfect. employee of the company immediately knew about what package she treated and she answered without doubting a second that " it is our answer to articles on energy of Mr. Calzada in Expansión".
(via babelfish)

De la caja salieron un filtro de gasoil y una pieza con rosca que podía adaptarse al filtro.
"In the box was left a diesel filter and a piece with a spiral that could adapt to the filter."
(with help from babelfish)

"Ten cuidado Gabriel, esta vez lo mandan como aviso, la próxima vez te puedes encontrar con un paquete que estalle al abrirlo".
Be careful, Gabriel. This time it came as a warning, the next time it could explode when you open it.
(via ShortTimer & my Langenscheidt English-Spanish dictionary)

Bad things going on in Spain.

But Spain has some nice things going on at the World Cup.

Global warming zealot terrorists have probably gone there to protest the carbon footprint of futbol stadiums and acquire vuvuzelas as WMDs.

Job-Killing Impact of Minimum Wage Laws

Because govt. wishing things to be so by making regulations and restrictions on free people have the typical outcome - harm to the people. Meanwhile, the govt. and their wishful thinking propagandists go out and try to convince people that govt. influence is what's helping them. Much like the parent with Munchausen by proxy who makes their child sick so they can "save" them.

The Growing Thugocracy

You won't believe your eyes....

This is what our country is coming to.... Congressmen acting like "badasses," and of course a President that says the following:

How presidential is that? Couple these two videos with this congressman from Illinois:

Who the heck do we have running the country? Are they elected officials that serve the public, or Al Capone, Dirty Harry, and Clyde Barrow? I truly hate to pick on just the leftists who are destroying our country, but I haven't found any video footage like this where conservatives or even republicans are concerned.

November is fast approaching America. Encourage your neighbors and friends to get out, talk about the issues and go vote when your time comes.

Left Flunks Econ 101

Who is better informed about the policy choices facing the country—liberals, conservatives or libertarians? According to a Zogby International survey that I write about in the May issue of Econ Journal Watch, the answer is unequivocal: The left flunks Econ 101.

Zogby researcher Zeljka Buturovic and I considered the 4,835 respondents' (all American adults) answers to eight survey questions about basic economics. We also asked the respondents about their political leanings: progressive/very liberal; liberal; moderate; conservative; very conservative; and libertarian.

Whole story at the link here:

One more example of wishful thinking over the objective results of the policies being examined.

For the leftist, ideology trumps reality.

Immigration Gumballs

Note this guy is only talking about the effects of having a loose legal immigration policy. Since illegal immigration represents a huge number of people arriving in the country and impacting the population, adjust the size of the chart accordingly to represent the 12 million illegals here today in 2010. Also notice that there really wouldn't be any effect on the big jar if your heart still bleeds.
