The sky is falling?

The Way I See It

by DON WEST

There was a report from the Washington Post regarding possible global warning. The Commerce Department in Bergen, Norway, reports that icebergs are melting and the seals may be finding the water too warm. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers point to unheard of changes in the Arctic Ocean. It is reported that well known glaciers have disappeared and very few seals and no white fish have been encountered in the eastern Arctic Ocean, while vast schools of herring have never been seen this far north in former seal hunting grounds.

It is predicted that within a few years, due to the melting of the glaciers, the sea level will rise to dangerous levels and coastal cities worldwide will be uninhabited. 

If I were you and living here in the Jennings area, I would start building a wharf so that you will be able to crab, fish and shrimp when your backyard becomes inundated with the Gulf of Mexico. You shouldn’t delay, according to the “chicken littles” that the sky will soon begin to fall.

Oh, by the way, this report from the Washington Post was published November 2, 1922. I’m sorry I failed to mention that at the beginning, and I hope you haven’t rushed out to buy that lumber for the wharf. Surely I wouldn’t start any kind of rumor to get my name in the newspaper and stay prominently in the public eye just in case I wanted to run for office. Would you do that, Al? Surely not.

If I have learned one thing in my 68 years, I can believe every single word that spouts forth from our politicians’ mouths. Notable entries could be recalled such as, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” Guess what? America just voted him the most popular president in the last 25 years, according to a Wall Street Journal report. And from the woman who actually did have sexual relations with him, regarding the Benghazi tragedy she said, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” This in response to claiming that she was unaware of the request for additional security at the embassy. Must have been about the same time she was suspected of leaving the White House with the silverware.

The sadness in all of this is she will probably have some chance of being elected president in 2016. America, I suggest you take a look at the list of Wal-martians and see if you can find a comparable candidate to run against her. 

Oh, one more thought. Under the category of “Hillary, don’t let this one get away”, I suggest you get this voter in your camp before he disappears. One of our local drug dealers who was not at home when the SWAT team ripped the front of his house off during a 3 a.m. drug raid, after returning, quickly went to the police station to complain about the damages to his drug house, where he was promptly arrested. You might want to appoint him as campaign chairman.
