Breakfast Scramble (Tuesday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
TSA stuck on stupid, TSA chief John Pistole, from CNN [1]:

Well, I think the Israeli model, which a number of people have talked about, uses intelligence in a different way, profiling. And then if in terms of a pat-down, if they suspect you of something, you receive a very thorough pat-down there.

That is top-notch security. The question is, do we profile here in the U.S.? No, we don’t. So how then do we use intelligence that informs the decisions and judgments. And given what we saw from last night in terms of this new Web publication that describes in detail how the cargo bombs were done, how the design concealed, and how they are using technology to disguise and defeat the screening mechanisms we have in place, look, it’s a difficult question, Candy.

Hat tip: RS McCaiin [2]

Algore stuck on stupid, or Gore is just a plain whore, from Sharon, Doerbittter Dispatch [3]:

The whole ethanol business was a scam from the get-go. Ethanol contains less energy than gasoline and takes more energy to create (by a lot). Al Gore has come out against ethanol subsidies, but here is the point which reinforces my anti-environmentalist stance: he admits that he was for them in the first place because he wanted to pander to farmers when he was running for office.

And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is what is wrong with the environmental movement. It’s NOT selfless, it’s NOT scientific, it’s NOT about what is best for the planet. It’s about getting a piece of the pie, about profits, about power, and in extreme cases it’s about pushing an anti-human agenda.

The math, energy used versus energy produced, never made sense.   Algore, now says he knew this all along, but was promting ethanol from corn, rather than say sugar cane, to promote his presidential ambitions.    One suspects that Algore is working on a new energy scam, where has a lerger stake.

Pigford stinks like pig shat,  Government to pay 93,000 reparation to 18,000 black farmers, from Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit [4]:

More than 92,000 “black farmers” have signed up for reparations from the Obama USDA after the Pigford case was extended this past year. That’s five times the number of blacks who were actually farming during the time period in question and would possibly qualify for the reparations.

Leave to our government to shaft the tax payers by paying reparations to five hundred percent of black farmers.
