Governor Booby

My elected state governor, Arnold Schwarzeneggar, has decided that global warming is an impending catastrophe and wants to cost the state billions solving a problem that doesn't exist; and even if it did, we could do little to nothing about.

He formally launched the gathering with a signing of an executive order mandating that greenhouse gas emissions in California be cut to year 2000 levels in the next five years, and that they be 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050.

"California will continue to be a leader in the fight against global warming and protecting our environment," the movie tough guy told the conference where he stole the show and received a standing ovation.

Booby. Nincompoop. Airhead. Dumbbell.

I don't know if we get the leaders we deserve since I know I don't deserve it, but this is what happens when there is no wisdom in men.

After the Hebrew prophets stopped pulling their hair out, they sat down to figure out how to save their country and people. Jeremiah realized it was impossible, so his backup plan in case of disaster was to propose that a saving remnant of the people who remembered the Lord and kept the Sabbath holy would be all that was left of Judah (Israel had already been lost). And he was right. They returned and re-established their nation.

New England was settled by a tiny remnant of England that considered themselves both as Jews given the Promised Land, and as refugees and exiles from a wicked nation. They expected to become a shining city on a hill. And they did.

A small group of Mormons went west and created their own kind of place in Utah. It was very successful.

But where is there for a remnant of America to go? There was no saving remnant of Romans at the end of their history.
