344 months of temperatures above 20th century average

"According to NOAA scientists, the globally averaged temperature for October 2013 was the seventh warmest October since recordkeeping began in 1880. It also marked the 37th consecutive October and 344th consecutive month (more than 28 years) with a global temperature above the 20th century average. The last below-average October global temperature was October 1976 and the last below-average global temperature for any month was February 1985". ----   http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/news/ncdc-releases-october-2013-global-climate-report

Pray for Wind Turbine Victims This holiday season please take the time to pray for a resolution for the victims of the wind turbines. There is no wrong time to pray. I believe that indications prove that prayer works. Prayer works not as a manipulation of supernatural beings , but as an opportunity to connect more deeply with ourselves and to experience the reality that we are not alone, no matter how much we may feel that we are at any given moment. Let's all pray for a resolution to the wind turbine. All men are created equal and don't forget the Tenth Commandment : You shall not covet your neighbor's house In religion we all have the Ten Commandments. The United States Constitution follows the Ten Commandments in one way or another. The US Constitution places the ownership of private property at the very heart of our system of liberty. The protection of property rights was one of the main purposes for which the Constitution was originally adopted. The rights of wind turbine victims need protection of their property rights against abusive state and local Massachusetts governments. This was one of the main reasons why the framers of the Fourteenth Amendment sought to apply the Bill of Rights to the states. We are witness to private illegal property takings used for the benefit of the politically powerful at the expense of the politically weak residential homeowners. Massachusetts state officials have refused to enforce laws to protect residential home owners. All we have left is prayer. Pray you won't be next and pray for the victims.

44 months and 17 days since basic health and property right protections remain compromised for some citizens of Falmouth. The last below-average global compromise of health protection was 1981 when Ronald Reagan shamefully abdicated leadership in the fight against AIDS. History has judged his presidency by the thousands who needlessly died of AIDS. How will history judge Falmouth's leadership? The "friends" want Falmouth's town turbines, as a global warming mitigation strategy, to over-rule constitutional protection standards. If allowed ~ what other rights will be next?

You have a right to your life and your liberty. You have a right to your property because it was created out of your life and liberty. These are your only rights and they are yours to defend. Rights can never be limited, balanced against society, or taken away except by God. The government can refuse to defend your rights or deny you the free exercise of your rights, but it can no more take them away than it can create them. When a government thinks that it can create rights at that moment it becomes God. When government does something for you that you do not have the right to do yourself, then it is acting illegally. If your government takes money from your neighbor and gives it to you it is acting as thief, just as you would be a thief if you took money from your neighbor and kept it. 1. Rights are a gift from God to each one of us. 2. To secure these rights we created government to do law 3. Law is the collective organization of individual rights 4. Because we have rights we give government authority 5. Government is dangerous because government is force 6. Government is limited by the constitution (enumerated powers) 7. Bill of rights establishes protection from government 8. Authority, privileges, contracts, agreements, and protection are inferior to rights If these relationships are understood and defended then we will live in a free republic. If these things continue not to be taught in government run schools then we will degenerate into just another lawless democracy.

Wow! A matter-of-fact post about NOAA temperature data results in three rambling tirades on God, the ten commandments, the constitution, Reagan and AIDS. It seems we are indeed hearing from the LUNATIC FRINGE.

Christmas Prayer: The Friends of Falmouth Wind have lost their moral compass. The Falmouth wind turbines cause physical harm people can't sleep. The turbines will never run more than 12 hours a day again. The entire project is a catastrophic health problem and now a financial burden on the taxpayers of Falmouth. Of course this isn't about money it's about Green Energy or was it Greed Energy. Let's all pray to St Jude for resolution : Oh glorious apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered thy beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused thee to be forgotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes thee universally as the patron of hopeless cases--of things despaired of. Pray for me who am so miserable; make use, I implore thee, of that particular privilege accorded thee of bringing visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolations and succor of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly (mention your request), and that I may bless God with thee and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise thee, O blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor thee as my special and powerful patron, and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to thee. Amen
