Political correctness is killing us all these days and Vic Furman uses a humorous tale to illustrate the absurdity of life among the self-righteous.

Somebody, please help me! I am suffering from a bad case of political correctness and would be extremely grateful to anyone who can assist me in finding out where I can find socially acceptable products to purchase. I am in desperation.

False Alarm: Bjorn Lomborg’s $69,000 Reveal Book

 ...

[Editor Comment: False Alarm is a new book by Bjorn Lomborg that reveals some amazing data about climate, the economy and what is falsely called sustainable development.]

Buy this book, read it and pass it on to your friends (and enemies, too, if you think they will listen to you).  Bjorn Lomborg’s False Alarm is not perfect, but it is great.  If for nothing else (and there are lots of other good reasons to read the book) the price of the book is worth it for this one number: $69,000.

Fossil Fuel vs. Ecologically Destructive and Unsustainable Green Energy

Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

….
…. 

Fossil fuel energy sources are hammered for risks but ecologically destructive and completely unsustainable “green” energy is getting away with everything.

Joe Biden has drifted far to the left and made it clear that, if elected president, he would restrict or ban fracking, pipelines, federal onshore and offshore drilling, and use of fossil fuel energy, and thus our economy. He’s selected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as his climate and energy advisor and is expected to choose an equally “progressive” woman of color as his running mate (and president-in-reality).

Vic Furman Repeats Vow: “I Won’t Quit Until We Win”

Victor Furman

.

Vic Furman is the sort of fellow who never goes away. He never quits. Vic Furman knows the most important rule of public life; persistence is the key to it all.

That was my campaign start up slogan in New York race for the Assembly and those who know me know its true. I have had many people call me and say they were sorry I lost, that they voted for me. Many called and said that they couldn’t travel to vote and did not get a notice that the polling places where they voted were closed until the Saturday before election when it was too late to obtain an absentee ballot.

There was, also, only one polling place open in Chenango County which consisted of 899 square miles and that was in Joe Angelino’s backyard, not mine. In Otego County, there was only one polling place open in 1,003 square miles. People were not going to buy a tank of gas to drive across either county to vote for Vic Furman or anyone else amid COVID-19 and lost jobs.

Those were problems, but there was another much bigger reason I lost and it causes me to repeat my campaign promise; “I Won’t Quit Until We Win.”

Germany Can No Longer Afford Renewables. This Is Our Future.

 ...

[Editor’s Note: The Energiewende in Germany has been a financial disaster but, of course, Congress wants it to use it as their model of green political correctness.]

Germany heavily taxes its power consumers for the added cost of wind and solar power. Power consumers make up the difference between payments made to investors and the wholesale power price. That makes the surcharge for renewable energy variable, moving with the price of wholesale power. Since January, wholesale power prices in Germany fell 20 percent due to the coronavirus lockdowns, which resulted in an increase in the renewable surcharge. That surcharge has enabled the government to reach over 50 percent of the nation’s electricity capacity from wind and solar energy, but it will cost consumers about 26.2 billion euros ($29.4 billion) this year to support investors.

Industry partners in the Marcellus shale region will soon start to reap the benefits of their investment in a new CDL training program at the Susquehanna County Career & Technology Center. 

June 26 marked one of many milestones yet to come at Susquehanna County Career & Technology Center’s new CDL training school. Five days into the course, the nine students comprising the first daytime class took turns climbing into a rig and maneuvering it around the driving course. For most of them, it was their first time in the drivers seat of a big truck and one giant step toward obtaining a lucrative new career.
