Looney Liberals Lose Again!

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 9, 2007

One of Quinn’s Laws (the first) states that “Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent. Similarly, government bureaucracies never solve problems, they manage them and exacerbate the ones they created by interfering with market forces and processes. “

In 1972, enviroweenies decided to make an artificial reef out of old tires, even receiving an okey dokey from the Army Corps of Engineers. Now, 35 years later, the tires have created a dead zone in the ocean and some 700,000 must be retrieved from the sea.

An excerpt from the article:

Brian Skoloff, The Associated PressFORT LAUDERDALE, FLA.
– It took only days to create what was touted as the world’s largest artificial
reef in 1972, when a well-intentioned group dumped hundreds of thousands of old
tires into the ocean.
But the tires turned out to be a reef killer, turning
a swath of ocean floor the size of 31 football fields into a dead zone.
Military crews began retrieving the tires this week from about 70 feet
underwater, where they had broken loose from bundles and wedged along a natural
reef. As of Thursday, they had pulled up about 1,600 of the estimated 700,000
tires that must be hauled to the surface.
The tires are “a constantly
killing coral-destruction machine,” said William Nuckols, who is coordinating
the cleanup. “They had to come up.”

How Many Islambergs Are There?

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 9, 2007

The story of Islamberg is finally breaking through to the Legacy Media after more than two years of awareness in the blogosphere. Shoot, even a local radio show addressed the problem of Jemaat al-Fuqra in October of 2005, and I have the CD to that show around here somewhere when the Baron discussed it in some detail.

An excerpt:

a school bus located within the compound of Islamberg – a bus like our children ride to school, we need to be paying close attention to what is taking place inside America and in our own back yards. This bus appears to hold distinctions few other school buses have… windows that appear to have been “blown out” from the inside, and holes that resemble and appear to be bullet holes into its exterior shell.

Evidence from the JFK Airport plot proves that not only are there Islamic terrorists in this country – they are practicing for urban warfare.

There was a compound in Colorado, still is one in Red House, Virginia, and more scattered throughout the country.

How many more Islambergs are there?
