Right Wing Watch offers up this exciting little tidbit of divinely inspired climate-change denialism:

Calvin Beisner: Let me just connect that to a biblical parable, the parable of the tablets. The unfaithful steward, the wicked and lazy steward as the master calls him, was the one who buried his talent in the ground and didn't do anything with it to multiply it. That's essentially what those who say we need to stop using oil, coal and natural gas are telling us to do. Just leave those resources buried in the ground rather than pulling them out and multiplying their value for human benefit.

Bryan Fischer:  You know I remember one time, Cal—this has just flashed into my head—a birthday party when I was a young guy, I was probably I don't know six or something like that, and I opened up a birthday present that I didn't like. And I said it right out, "Oh, I don't like those." […] And the person that gave me the gift was there. You know, I just kind of blurted it out, "I don't like those." And, you know, it just crushed that person. It was enormously insensitive of me to do that. And you think that's kind of how we're treating God when he has given us these gifts of abundant and inexpensive and effective fuel sources and we don't thank him for it and we don't use it.

You know the scripture said it is the glory of God to conceal a matter and it is the glory of kings to search it out. […]You know, God's buried those treasures there because he loves to see us find them and put them to use.

Koch brothers' shorter version: God is on our side.

Blast from the Past. At Daily Kos on this date in 2002The Bush Administration is out of control:

Bush is enraged that—get this—UN weapons inspectors are not finding any hidden weapons.
The lack of a confrontation thus far between Iraq and inspectors has the White House worried that the Iraqi president might be winning the early public relations battle by creating an impression that he is complying. Aides said those fears prompted the president and Vice President Dick Cheney (news-web sites) to deliver separate speeches Monday casting doubt on Saddam's intentions.
How about this—if the Bush Administration has proof that Iraq is hidding weapons of mass destruction, then release this evidence! Otherwise, shut up. It's telling that the best the Bushies can do is whine.

Tweet of the Day:

The top 400 people in the US hold about as much wealth as the bottom 200 MILLION? Tell me that's not FUBAR.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
