Democracy is victorious today in Honduras

A very interesting blow-by-blow of the Honduran congressional vote today to decide whether or not Zelaya could be restored to the presidency. An overwhelming majority decided to vote YES, to accept the motion to not restore Zelaya. They have upheld the decision of the supreme court and have declared that their democracy will stand true by denying Zelaya the right to return to the office of the president. This is the will of the people and the demands of their constitution.

How about an apology to Honduras Mr. Obama, you know, since you're so good at those?

The Imposter

So it turns out that someone has posted more than 800 comments on articles on the Seattle Times website. The person has been posting as "Liberty Bell" and allegedly said some nasty things. This imposter has also allegedly used direct quotes from my blog to make it seem like it is me.

It is time to clarify: that person posting on the Seattle Times website is not me. The nicknames are similar, though not even the exact spelling, and I have no rights to that nickname so I cannot prevent others from using it. I also cannot prevent anonymous people from lifting content from my own blog.

If you see comments by this imposter, please call him/her out. It is not me.

Your participation is requested...

On two items!

First, via Watts Up With That, a link to a survey about "climate change." Check it out and vote "count me out" to make it known that intelligent people don't take manipulated and fraudulent data as adequate proof of anthropogenic global warming.

Second, there's a nice article about yours truly over at the Kitsap Sun and the trolls found the article first. If you're keen, go on over and leave a comment or two... :)

Happy Monday everyone!

The after-Thanksgiving post

First of all, happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope you all had a relaxing and joyful weekend. I know I did - hence the lateness of my happy Thanksgiving wishes!

Second, some information about poor Americans today versus the average American in 1971. Guess what. The poor today are better off. Interesting stuff.

That's all for now!
