Global Warming Hysteria: IT’S GOING TO SNOW IN SAN FRANCISCO!

Some, like Al Gore, have been saying that the recent arctic freezes around the country and in Europe are signs of global warming. And now, now a snow storm is coming to SF!  It must be global warming–or at least, global weirding, in Thomas Friedman’s stupid phrase.

Uh, that would be a big negative. It doesn’t happen often, but it snows more often here than in you know where.  From the story:

Previous snowfall at sea level in San Francisco:

Dec. 25, 1856 2.5 inches

June 12, 1868 2 inches

Dec. 31, 1882 3.5 inches

Feb. 7, 1884 1.5 inches

Feb. 5, 1887 3.7 inches (most snow ever recorded in the city)

Jan. 16, 1888 0.1 of an inch

March 3, 1896 1 inch (latest ever)

Dec. 11, 1932 0.8 of an inch

Jan. 15, 1952 0.3 of an inch

Jan. 21, 1962 2 inches

Feb. 5, 1976 1 inch

Gee, all that was before the great global warming scare.  In fact, in 1976, scientists were worrying about global cooling.

Nope. It’s just weather.

Trump and the ‘Racist Tweets’

What does “racist” even mean anymore? Racism is the headline on President Trump’s Sunday tweets -- the media-Democrat complex assiduously describes them as “racist tweets” as if that were a fact rather than a trope. I don’t think they were racist; I think they were abjectly stupid. Like many ... Read More

We All Wanted to Love the Women’s Soccer Team

For the first time in my life, I did not root for an American team. Whatever the sport, I have always rooted American. And if those who called in to my radio show were representative of my audience, many millions of Americans made the same sad choice. It takes a lot for people like me not to root for an ... Read More

Men Literally Died for That Flag, You Idiots

The American flag’s place in our culture is beginning to look less unassailable.
