Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death. Amen.

"Pictures of our backyard of the 12 inch snowfall we had last Wednesday. Gene."
The Kenneys immigrated from Laois County Ireland. The Sons, and at least one Daughter of Patrick and Elizabeth Kenney, came to America with their Mother. They settled in Farmington, Washington County, Wisconsin. The Kenneys were Catholic. My 2nd Great Grandfather James Kenney married Catherine Burns/Byrns, and they had many children, and so did his siblings. Martin, Patrick, Catherine, and possibly a Lance Kenney. Many of our Kenney Kin are buried in St John Of God's Catholic Cemetery in Farmington, Washington County, Wisconsin. And I was so fortunate to be reunited with my Kenney cousin Gene, who has done an enormous amount of research into our Kenney's ancestry. Including sending me photos of not only the Kenneys' resting place in St John Of God's Cemetery. Gene also traveled to neighboring Sheboygan County, for my Great Grandfather James Aloysius Kenney's wife's family, the Jordans, also Irish Immigrants from Sligo and Mayo Countys Ireland. Thomas & Sarah (Morgan) Jordan, and some of their children, are resting in St Michaels Catholic Cemetery. When the Irish arrived in these two areas, they got busy, and built Catholic Churchs which their children were baptized in, and later the church's cemeteries, would hold their mortal remains. Gene, is related to me through Martin Kenney, who enlisted in the Union Army, during the Civil War.

Okay so I went to the Glue Factory to take a look at the process of turning Dead Horses into Glue ;) This Climategate Scandal is like catnip for Nerds. Now we have Top Scientist Rally To the Defence of the Met Office. 1700 Scientist signed a letter stating they endorsed the Man Made Global Warming "Theory" even though the hacked emails from East Anglia, shows there was deceit in the reporting of the researched climate data.
The Times Online
December 10, 2009
The Met Office has embarked on an urgent exercise to bolster the reputation of climate-change science after the furor over stolen e-mails. More than 1,700 scientists have agreed to sign a statement defending the “professional integrity” of global warming research. They were responding to a round-robin request from the Met Office, which has spent four days collecting signatures. The initiative is a sign of how worried it is that e-mails stolen from the University of East Anglia are fueling skepticism about man-made global warming at a critical moment in talks on carbon emissions.
One scientist said that he felt under pressure to sign the circular or risk losing work. The Met Office admitted that many of the signatories did not work on climate change, Keep Reading HERE.
Hey know what this reminds me of? The 88 Duke Professors who signed the "AD" and placed it in The Chronicle. An "AD" That's called Marketing Folks.
Soon after the allegations were made, 88 Duke professors (referred to sometimes as the "Group of 88") from the Trinity College of Arts & Sciences placed an ad in The Chronicle referring to the circumstances surrounding the allegations as a "social disaster" and quoting primarily anonymous individuals citing racism and sexism in the Duke community. The advertisement concluded, "We're turning up the volume [...] To the students speaking individually and to the protestors making collective noise, thank you for not waiting and for making yourselves heard," and "These are the students shouting and whispering about what happened to this young woman." Notable signatories included Miriam Cooke, Anne Allison, Cathy Davidson, Ariel Dorfman, Michael Hardt, Alice Kaplan, Claudia Koonz, Walter Mignolo, Mark Anthony Neal and Alex Rosenberg. The ad was spearheaded by faculty member Wahneema Lubiano.
In three departments, more than half of faculty signed the statement. The department with the highest proportion of signatories was African and African-American Studies, with 80%. Just over 72% of the Women's Studies faculty signed the statement, Cultural Anthropology 60%, Romance studies 44.8%, Literature 41.7%, English 32.2%, Art & Art History 30.7%, and History 25%. No faculty members from the Pratt School of Engineering or full-time law professors signed the document. Departments that had no faculty members sign the document include Biological Anthropology and Anatomy, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Genetics, Germanic Languages/Literature, Psychology and Neuroscience, Religion, and Slavic and Eurasian Studies.
In January 2007, many months after the initial print of the ad, a new letter was posted at the Concerned Duke Faculty website signed by 87 faculty members stating that the original ad was misinterpreted. The letter states that the intent of the original ad was to address issues of racism and sexism in the community and not to prejudge the case. Wikipedia Keep Reading HERE.
I think we all remember how that turned out - those academics apologized right/SNARK.
Here's another signed petition. From Minnesotans for Global Warming.
I don't know what the bureaucrats, and politicians, think their 1,700 scientist signatures on a petition accomplishes? If I had to guess what's going on with this tired marketing ploy, I have to wonder if some of them have been sniffing glue ;)
Imus's Guest This Morning Mary Matalin "Global Warming Is A Money Scam"

US plan to round up wild horses draws opposition
In recent years, the government has rounded up and relocated wild horses to other lands in the West. Helicopters are used to drive the mustangs toward cowboys with lassos. The cowboys then put the horses onto trucks.
The latest proposed roundup, however, would take the horses outside the West altogether.
The California-based Defense of Animals strongly opposes roundups, arguing that the horses are an integral part of the ecosystem and that using helicopters can traumatize, injure or kill the animals.
The BLM spent about $50 million this year to feed, corral and otherwise manage the nation's wild horses, up from $36 million last year. Without contraception or other such measures, mustang herds can double in size about every four years, authorities say.
One of the most vocal wild-horse advocates is Grammy-winning singer Sheryl Crow, who has adopted a mustang herself and took her concerns directly to Salazar in a recent telephone call.
"One of the first things he said was something must be done because the horses are starving. We don't believe it," Crow said in an interview with The Associated Press. KEEP READING HERE or Click On Graphic Above.

The Totalities Of Copenhagen, Global warming and the psychology of true belief.
By Bret Stephens Wall Street Journal
The above article did point out some interesting similarities. True believers may not be Stalinist but they share a lot of Stalinist qualities.
For some reason what's going on right now (The Global Warmest Trying To Shut Down Any Dissent - It's Settled Science Ya'll) reminds me of a science fiction series, I read when I was younger. Stephen Reeder Donaldson's The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever.
Wikipedia Donaldson's most celebrated series is The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever, which centers on a cynical leper, shunned by society, who is destined to become the heroic savior of an alternate Earth. Covenant struggles against the tyrannical Lord Foul, who intends to break the physical universe in order to escape his bondage and wreak revenge upon his arch-enemy, The Creator.
Here is a reader companion for our Global Warmingmongers, Stephen R Donaldson Ate My Dictionary.
Hmm....A cynical leper shunned by society for not believing what he refuses to believe That's got to be science fiction.

NASA Faces FOI Lawsuit Over Climate Data
by Rebecca Terrell
3 December 2009
Dinan reports Horner's prediction that "what is there is highly damaging. These guys are quite clearly bound and determined not to reveal their internal discussions about this." According to Dinan, NASA spokesman Mark Hess says the agency is collecting "responsive, relevant" information to answer Horner's requests. Hess could not explain why NASA has taken so long to provide the records. The FOI Act allows up to 30 days for agencies to respond.
Horner fears the same data tampering has occurred at NASA as that reported to have happened in "ClimateGate," a recent scandal involving hacked e-mails from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia in England. The correspondence suggests researchers illegally concealed data requested through FOI laws in Britain, and CRU Director Phil Jones has temporarily stepped down during an independent investigation into the matter. Penn State University has launched its own inquiry into the ClimateGate role played by one of its professors, Michael Mann. The CRU data, just like NASA's information, is some of the most influential in environmental policy-making decisions on both domestic and international fronts. KEEP READING HERE.

Rep Thaddeus McCotter, appearing on Fox News Red Eye, weighs in on the hacked emails that resulted in "Climategate" Rep McCotter, what are these empirical facts you speak of?
Thaddeus McCotter: Greg imagine if you were in a peninsula around a 1,000 B.C. or so earlier, and your name is Tor, and you were out hunting mastodon. And you didn't notice the glaciers were melting around you, and leaving the devastating flooding in it's wake, that became the Great Lakes, and the state of Michigan. So I think that what we have to do is go back in history, and realize, the earth has been here for a long time. That to take selective periods of time, and say that man made global warming is occurring is absolutely wrong. We have to look at the different periods in history. We have to look at the different effects. Then we have to have direct empirical data to Correlate between man's activity, and the effects on the planet. And that has yet to be proven, and I highly doubt it is going to be anytime soon.

The atheist keep claiming there is no God - So no need for us to celebrate Christmas right? But look, we have hacked emails exposing the biggest hoax of the century Climategate. We have the superficial behavior of the current administration's Desiree Rogers, failed checking guest in at the White House. The party's over folks. And we have this now infamous cover of the President playing golf, while we suffer the worse unemployment numbers in 26 years. The cover of "Golf Digest" the biggest sport celebrity fall from grace " Tiger Woods" super imposed behind the President golfing. Tiger Woods giving the President tips. Wow Santa's helpers have really been busy.
Santa came early this year ;) Why do I, claim all of these things are presents? We - Americans are a superficial uninformed lot of people. We pay attention to the Glitz but ignore the Substance. The majority of Americans couldn't tell you the name of the Vice President of the United States. Of course they are all gifts. Climategates whole purpose is to put a surtax on human beings for existing - breathing. Crashergate - pointed out national security weaknesses at the White House. Besides the first family, they had visiting heads of state from India. Who wants an international incident at the White House? Tiger Woods, being used as a prop or the President of the United States, being used as a marketing gimmick for a Golf Magazine to sell copies? If that isn't lame and cheap, and now exposed for what it is, extreme superficiality. Does Golf Digest, think that all of the out of work Americans, want to be reading how the President is golfing with a "Golf Celebrity" while they are suffering? Will Americans go back to their core values and morals?
Who hacked the email accounts of the folks, who were perpetrating the global climate hoax? (Who Is An Expert On the Arctic?) Barbara Boxer, wants an investigation into email theft. I want to pin a medal on their chest. Were they Chinese hackers? Perhaps Russian hackers? Could we dare hope, they were American hackers? They're heroes to me. I suppose, I shouldn't be surprised that the same people who perpetrate hoaxes, like man made global warming are also anti Santa Claus. The Grinch-es, who keep trying to steal our money (Cap & Trade) and ruin our holiday traditions.

Neil Cavuto's guest on "Your World" Lawrence Eagleburger. Mr Eagleburger Quote: Afghanistan isn't a country it's a collection of tribes. Mr Eagleburger, in so many words said, that success depends on the mission. If the troop build up is to hunt the "bad actors" one could see some success in that endeavor. On the other hand if the troop build up is to create stability in the region, it couldn't be accomplished if we doubled the amount of our troops, and our allies troops. That would be around 400 - 500 thousand troops in Afghanistan, and that couldn't accomplish that feat, I agree. Imus was discussing the very same topic with his guest this morning Carl Jeffers. Imus tells Carl Jeffers, he believes it would take 500,000.00 troops to fix Afghanistan.
Imus in the Morning - Fox Business News
Craig Crawford another I Fav, has an opinion on the troop build up "Obama's Afghan Folly" I am leaning toward the Craig Crawford opinion, on the Afghan troop build up. I don't think the Afghan War should be politicized. If the mission is to defeat the enemy, I am "All In" but if we are going in to Nation Build, I think it's a waste of American's lives. How much of our Blood do we sacrifice to defeat the masterminds of the 9/11 slaughter?
