<quoted text>Detroit? You think Detroit is in control? Bwhahahahaha. What a fine example of a democrat controlled city that has union workers for citizens and yet some of the HIGHEST crime in America.
Good choice there.
It is government that is destroying America controlled by the purse strings of donors. You know, they guys that got "bailout" money?
Apparently you misunderstood the whole conversation. Where do you get Detroit as being head of anything , anymore. What Detroit was, was one of the largest industrial complex citys in the world. A thriving middle class, a diversity of people and business.And it was sold out , by private interest, for more profit. Causing the unions, to lose their power, taking away living wages. And in the end the corporation still won, as they just moved their industry, to countries and states with no environmental regulation or workers rights. The crime you speak of was and is caused by your inequality of wealth, and racial segregation.

lol, yes some seem to forget the eastern seaboard including eastern Canada and Upper Canada was a British colony for a couple hundred yrs before the war of Independence of 1775–1783., As the French had Quebec,northern Ontario, Manitoba, and the Spanish had most of south and central America, and Texas, Miami, and California. The Oklahoma land rush was of the 1850s-60s just after the Indian wars of previous decades in which the American military almost annihilated an entire race of people..

The WHOLE point of electing a government in the first place is to make decisions for you. Not to sit back & do nothing just because you don't want them interfering in your life. The government is your voice but it won't always tell you what you want to hear!

"There is no such thing as natural, anymore. Science is manipulation and understanding of Alchemy, it is not perfect and changes when new evidence is understood."
So, you climate changers really do refuse to believe and understand the laws of physics? And yet you believe you can change lead into gold too? Hahahahaha
Man is nothing more than a parade of ants at a picnic in the park when it comes to affecting climate change on earth.
Ice still melts at 32 degrees, contains air and as it melts (if it melts) would not add to the waters volume but decrease it do to decreasing displacement.
CO2 is beneficial to plants that would cause them to grow more plush and thus reduce temperatures.
If water evaporates it causes increases in rain which plants also love making them plush and thus reduce temperatures.
The earth is STILL 2/3 covered in water and we are not going to die of dehydration due to global warming. If anything we would end up with more tropical settings and able to grow more food in more places.
You cannot change the Law of Thermodynamics no matter how much grant money and fairy tales to have.
Liberal artists ought to stick to reading and writing graphic novels and leave science to those trained in such.
I ,think your a little clueless as to the understanding, of the natural evolutionary process of this planet. The fact it has taken millions of yrs to get to the point we are at, based on the natural alchemy and evolutionary process of the natural life cycle on this planet. We are more than ants, we are critical thinkers, we are at the top of the food chain, and we have manipulated the natural life cycle of this planet. to suit our needs, The very fact the global population has grown to 7billion, is because of our science and technology in both agriculture and medicine. It takes one man and one tractor to do the work of what used to take 100s of people, because of our pesticides and fertilizers, we are able to grow enough food for 11 billion. Our medicine has given us a very high success in infant births. We are no different than the animals we lock in our zoos. if natural selection is what you want than go shit in the woods with the bears. We are the only species that destroys the environment around them for self interest.
If we change the natural alchemy of water, my friend, we change the alchemy of all life on this planet. I don't know about where you live, but a high percentage of people die from various cancers, that are related to the very same chemicals that we use in our daily lives.The only real cure for cancer is prevention.

In your book of measurements, what would you count extreme? Forgetting that most of all weather records have been broken globally in the past 10 years. Be it Hot, Cold, or Storms. When do you consider it extreme, a hurricane or blizzard every week before you start to consider something is out of sync.

<quoted text>says who? people who believe government knows better?
I understand the USA is a republic, but the constitution was written for the citizenry . The people who drafted the constitution,did not wright it for the people of their times. It was written in the hopes, that America would become a true democracy, with a citenzry that understands, their responsibility to participate in a democracy. Governments role is the management of the interest of the citenzry. In Americas case, it is the freedom of choice,the liberty and equal justice for all,and equal opportunity. it is the management of infrastructure, public utility, resource management, regulation for public safety and health.,education,military and prisons,regulation and control of the monetary system
But of course this is not so much the case today, as we can see very easily the manipulation of self interest groups, such as OPEC, and the private banking, food industry, pharmaceutical and chemical industry, and the military complex corporations. And they are now manipulating globally..Most everything that was under gov. regulation and control has been privatized, they are now trying to privatize public education.
1) Get rid of the federal Reserve,it is a private banking of self interest. Bring back the greenback, a tool of trade and barter based on supply and demand of actual commodity (not speculation)and labour, regulated and controlled by gov., with no interest on the national debt.
2) Get rid of special interest and lobbyists from any kind of political policy or law making. Change the law the gives corporations the same constitutional rights as its citizens.
3) The most important, Democracy is the means in which the citenzry, by mutual consensus decides the means in which gov. is to be managed. And is only as strong as the participation of an informed and educated citenzry.. Government is not ,them and us, they are representatives of we the people. And if we the people are to busy with the bread and circus, the ones who know how to manipulate , will, as they have for centuries. It is we the people who give our trust that makes this system work, In solidarity with our votes, change is possible. The responsibility of change is all of ours.

It seems another vortex over England not unlike the one in the US. All this is perfectly normal weather of course to deniers!

"The political blame-game is in full swing over who is at fault for the current flooding crisis. But ministers debating local dredging operations in Somerset is a sideshow.
It will be a miracle if the winter of 2013-14 does not go down as the wettest on record – and frankly, it is difficult to see what could have been done to prevent massive disruption given the rainfall. But why is this happening?

The immediate answer is that the UK is “stuck” in a weather pattern – a common feature of our climate. But what is uncommon is the exceptional intensity of the rain and waves. There is a perfect so-called “storm factory” in the Atlantic caused by warm, moist air from the tropics coming up unusually close to the very cold polar air"

well yes, it is the history, but every nation or culture at one point in our human history has been the slave or en-slaver. And while I agree it is important to understand history, to learn from its mistakes, dwelling or pointing blame at people of today, is of no use, and really counter productive. the history of mankind is all of ours, good and bad. We are in the 21st century, it is time to put aside our piety indifference's, and understand we are one people , with one planet , that we all call home. there is no turning back time. It is time to move forward, and use the best of all mankind's knowledge for the betterment of all humanity and our environments.

Please stop with your ant-imperialistic propaganda.
Unions destroyed the city out of greed for wages for low skilled assembly line workers that made the American Auto unaffordable.
Crime is created by the handout mentality and commercialism shoved in your face telling you all the crap you want but don't need.
These thugs wear 400 dollar sneakers and complain they are poor? Reallly? No consequences for the crime so young punks head back out and do it again and again.
There are 1000s of folks that have stories of growing up poor and succeeding by hard work. My father being one of 10 kids coming from a depression era family that rose up to be successful.
Stop with the excuses for poverty. Most folks on the government dole get well over $44,000 in food and benefits so why work?

Our intellect has propelled us to the head of the evolutionary chain! That is natural evolution so get used to it. We are superior to the rest of the creatures. They lose, right? After all, we evolved to win!!
Our self interest is our survival of the fittest. Again, earth doesn't give a crap because it will be here and the cockroach will dominate!

[QUOTE who="ratdownthemiddle ", "middleofthedownwronggull y"]more extreme weather.....
compared to when?[/QUOTE]

Watching the weather radar as the "pineapple express" stabilized over Washington state, "hotspots" of pouring rain appeared on mountain slopes, hour after hour. By the end of the first day,~35 inches of rain had accumulated on one of the one to 2 mile square "hotspots". Returning to the weather radar the next day, I was surprised that the "pineapple express" was still focused on that one "hotspot". The accumulated rain had increased to 60 inches! By day's end, 75 inches of rain had fallen on the square mile or more 'hotspot" On the third day, "pineapple express" was still focused like a gun. By the end of the 3rd day, 110 inches had rained on the "hotspot". The 4th day showed a few breaks in the clouds, altho the rain gun still hammered that mountain spot. When the "pineapple express" finally moved, that "hotspot" had been nailed by 133 inches of rain.
