Snow, Government, and Loonies

As we all know, the federal government has been shut down for a couple of days due to the tremendous snowfall in the nation’s capital (let’s all pray for more snow). A few interesting tidbits:

--25% of Washington’s snow plows were out of commission and the city had a shortage of salt. What would happen to any private business that was run like that? Government, of course, will get more money.

--On Monday, Obama announced that a new agency was going to be established to study and report on “climate change,” aka, “global warming.” They had to postpone setting up this new office because of the snow.

--And this from MSNBC (no surprise there): “These Snowpocalypses that have been going through DC and other extreme weather events are precisely what climate scientists have been predicting, fearing and anticipating because of global warming.” Yes, you read that correctly. The record snowfall is being caused by global warming.
