Come on U.N.; STOP with the scare tactics. Your politically motivated “junk science” reports are seen for what they are: attempts to blame the United States and other advanced countries for the plight of the poorer nations supposedly threatened by rising global temperatures caused by our activity. This is an extortionate scheme which would ultimately stifle economic growth in the advanced countries and bring about a level field of “equal poverty” for all which is the goal of the socialist tinkerers in the United Nations bureaucracy. Appended here is an excellent article from FrontPageMag.com:

We need to show more sympathy for these people.
* They travel miles in the heat.
* They risk their lives crossing a border.
* They don’t get paid enough wages.
* They do jobs that others won’t do or are afraid to do.
* They live in crowded conditions among a people who speak a different language.
* They rarely see their families, and they face adversity all day every day.
I’m not talking about illegal Mexicans;
I’m talking about our troops!
Doesn’t it seem strange that many Democrats and Republicans are willing to lavish all kinds of social benefits on illegals, but don’t support our troops and are now threatening to de-fund them?

Two Vietnam-Era Veterans Receive Purple Hearts
NORWICH, Conn. (AP) _ Two Connecticut veterans have been presented with Purple Heart medals for injuries they received while serving in the Vietnam War.
U.S. Congressman Joe Courtney presented the awards at the Norwich Veterans of Foreign Wars post today (SATURDAY), calling the honors long overdue.
One of the veterans, Montville resident John Gleason, was injured during a nighttime attack in which he was temporarily blinded by shrapnel that struck his face.
The other veteran, David Salemma of Baltic, was injured when a booby-trapped explosive went off near him as he and a comrade worked to plan a nighttime ambush on the enemy.
The presentation of the awards are among many events and ceremonies planned throughout Connecticut over the next few days in honor of Veterans Day.

Who knows, if wigwam building had spread the homeless would be building these huts all over town. Thankfully, alert police, fire, and sanitation officials recognized the imminent danger and ordered the Harbor Park wigwam destroyed. “It’s a tinderbox” said Deputy Fire Marshal Allen Santostefano. But city Health Department officials were concerned that the structure would attract the homeless; Chief Sanitation Officer Sal Nesci said “It had the makings of an unsafe abode.” Housing Inspector Dennis Murray said, “It was absolutely beautiful. It was a beautiful structure.” “They flattened it,” said George Frick, the artist who built the structure.

Photos below taken several weeks ago show the offending wigwam and several dugout canoes also part of the interesting project which involved local youth in Native American crafts. Dugout canoes were used in a trip across L.I. Sound to Greenport and a more ambitious Middletown to Florida trip is planed for Spring ’08 . More article about these projects here, here and here.
