That is funny, a senseless comment from a wannabe educated poster. Seems his education is lost.

Here is a little reading for ditto deniers.
http://simpleclimate.wordpress.com/2014/06/22...

I have yet to see a valid argument from any of you. Your comments are steeped in political and are not rational arguments at all. Mostly all I see is reactionary RW extremist propaganda.

The earth is warming. CO2 is a GHG. Burning fossil fuels increases the CO2 in the atmosphere. No one has found any other reason for the current warming. Many have tried and failed. Man can and has altered the environment. Quit denying and become rational.

There is a chasm of monumental proportions between being liberal and being "a" liberal. Much like the difference between democrat and democracy.
I see, you actually looked it up! Yep I am a liberal person and proud of it.It is the radical RWers who have tried to place a perversion on the word liberal. I am also progressive, another word the radical RWers have perverted. BTW, most Democrats are democratic.

A liberal person gives of himself, freely. A liberal/progressive gives of everyone else, forcibly. You have corrupted seemingly innocuous terms into oppressive political movements. You're akin to the envoy carrying an olive branch in front of you and a homicide bomb behind.

Liberal: Willing to respect or accept behaviour or opinions different from one’s own; open to new ideas:

Progressive: Moving forward; proceeding onward; advancing; evincing progress; increasing; as, progressive motion or course

Of course you are stilted in the buzz words of the radical RW.

She pointed out that hundreds of thousands of people, mostly African Americans, are having their water ruthlessly turned off.

Families with children, the elderly and the sick, cannot bathe, flush their toilets or cook in their own homes, she added.

“This is the worst violation of the human right to water I have ever seen outside of the worst slums in the poorest countries in failed states of the global South,” said Barlow, a one-time senior advisor on water to a former President of the U.N. General Assembly.

Last March, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) announced plans to shut off water service for 1,500 to 3,000 customers every week if their water bills were not paid. And on Tuesday, the City Council approved an 8.7-percent water rate increase.

According to a DWSD document, more than 80,000 residential households – in a city of 680,000 people – are in arrears, with thousands of families without water, and thousands more expected to lose access at any moment.

I understand, you probably had a gut wrenching experience just saying most Democrats are democratic. Don't let the party catch you spreading that lie.
