Yeah, I heard about that. Al Jazeera has been trying to get onto American cable for a long time, and now their strategy is to buy Current and use it's existing contracts. I wonder how many Current watchers will even notice? Time Warner is saying they'll just break the contract and pay whatever penalty that come up.
Regardless, you couldn't have gotten much further off topic without a rocket and a match.
We will have Al Jazeera to balance FOX. Perhaps that will be fair and balanced.

AJ will just be another one of those channels people skip over, but it will be worth having it on cable just to watch FOXers spit, spin and foam at the mouth. Again.

Not off topic, Al Gore sold out to a company owned by an OPEC founder. We've always warned you, climate change mitigation is a hoax to drive up fossil fuel prices and give more wealth to OPEC.

Yeah, I get that you wanted a dig at Gore. Here, let me help you out.
That Pelosi sure is smart - and competent, too!
Isn't Hillary just the cutest woman you ever laid eyes on?
I'll bet Reid would make a great POTUS - he should run in 2014.
If the Republicans would just get out of the way, I'll bet Obama could get cap and trade global in a year and a half.

Conserving fossil fuels drives up OPEC profits? Howz that - by strategic manipulation of supply and demand? Good one. Is that sorta like outsourcing and offshoring creates better paying American jobs by making them more scarce?

Actually itís about the money. Supply and demand has little influence on the price of oil. We have more supply today and the prices continue to rise. The oil barons say by 2020 the Great USA will produce enough oil for this Great Country will have a self sustained status. Now this statement is a cut and paste statement from another source. No I did not research the truth of that statement.

Link TV already is telling, what FOX doesn't (to use a favorite properly spelled word of 'phud feces face').

Been the same here, except our lakes haven't frozen in 10 out of the last 10 years. Once in a while, lakes used to freeze over when I was a kid & my grandparents remembered iced lakes & community skating, lots when they were kids.

If you'd waited till the end of winter, you could have gotten a new one at a used blower price.

Exactly! Our government's fuel policy makes us more reliant on foreign oil by discouraging the production and use of energy and fuel. It takes a basic commodity and adds an extra-market constraint to increase its price, making it more expensive for the consumer and more profitable for the producer. There's more profit margin in diamonds than in coal.

Importing foreign goods keeps prices lower by letting the market find the most efficient workers and consumers. Factories were closed by unions increasing wages, government adding regulation and foreign workers able to produce quality goods at low prices.

I'm in favor of free trade; that's one of the few good ideas liberal have given us.

Half right; if the Republicans hadn't stopped Obama, he'd have given the USA cap and trade. Obama's got no power beyond our borders; China, the developing world and half of the developed world will never sign onto climate change mitigation.

oh my yes 'bozo', it is all about science. the grant money for scientific fraud is in the billions. there is talk of some surprise that you are not in on it. it must be hard on you to referee this kindergarden class of 'special people' and not get rewarded with grant money. you should reapply 'bozo', the money is there for the taking.

Directly out of the RW playbook. It is obvious that you have no concept except what the rad bloggers spew.
