Greens jump the shark!

Salute to the Western Confucian.

Here's the video. Greens did this themselves, without any prompting, with the idea that this is funny, and you'll agree. Be advised, it's nearly as violent as photos of aborted children.

There's commentary on Lew Rockwell and James Delingpole's Guardian blog.

EDIT: Some thoughts of my own....
the murders are portrayed as essentially inconsequential to those who do them. And they do them immediately after lying about the consequences. These things point out first, the value that the AGW types put on human life; second, their respect for the rule of law; and third, their commitment to honesty.

Further update: 10:10Global took down this video of theirs the same day they posted it (and yes, it really is the creation of 10:10Global, an advocacy group going on about the need to cut global carbon emissions by 10% every year, intending to start in 2010). They can no doubt ask Google to remove this posting of it, but it's likely that the detailed write-up currently on Wikipedia will remain, and that it will get re-posted each and every time it gets blocked or taken down.

Pressure your senators!

Leahy and Hatch, two longstanding proponents of nearly any legislation that restricts freedom, have come up with a real doozy: S. 3804, the the Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (THOMAS link). There is an online opposition group, Demand Progress. Their front page links to stories from nearly a dozen sources.

I urge you to call and write your senators, and tell them to oppose the bill. No need for details, just tell them "OPPOSE S. 3804, the the Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act." No point in getting verbose, all your senator will get is a report telling how many have written, called, and emailed in on each side of the issue.
