Snow Storm Hits Arizona, Colorado, Nebraska And Kansas In Rare Winter Weather Event
Reuters | Posted: 02/20/2013

By Keith Coffman

DENVER, Feb 20 (Reuters)- The leading edge of a large, powerful winter storm descended on the western United States on Wednesday, dropping snow as far south as Tucson, Arizona, and snarling evening rush-hour traffic in Denver.

A rare snowfall sweeping the southeastern corner of Arizona blanketed the saguaro cactus-studded high desert with several inches of white stuff, leading the Professional Golfers' Association to cancel play at a tournament near Tucson.

"I don't think I have (ever seen anything like this), to be honest," competitor Ian Poulter said of the first-round interruption of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play tournament.

"It's absolutely remarkable to think one minute we're playing golf, albeit it's a little cool, and then within a space of 25 minutes, it turns from playable to cold drizzle to sleet and to snow. And within an hour and a half of all that starting, you've got 2 inches of snow plus on the ground. It's just bizarre."

You are half right and half wrong.

Look at our recent history.

Obama is to the RIGHT of both Republican presidents General Eisenhower and Tricky Dicky Nixon on some issues.

Also look what Slick Willie Clinton did with all the Speaker Newt Gingrich Republicans.

They terminated Glass/Stegall so Wall Street could rob again like they did in 1929.

NAFTA only benefits the wealthiest and look who showed up at the Clinton/Gore White House to sell it:

Presidents: Ford, Carter, Daddy Bush, and Reagan would have been there but was too sick.

Yes Democrats are the lesser of two evils, BUT STILL EVIL.

Majority of U.S. citizens say illegal immigrants should be deported
By Rachelle Younglai | Reuters – 13 hrs ago

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- More than half of U.S. citizens believe that most or all of the country's 11 million illegal immigrants should be deported, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Wednesday that highlights the difficulties facing lawmakers trying to reform the U.S. immigration system.
The online survey shows resistance to easing immigration laws despite the biggest push for reform in Congress since 2007.
Thirty percent of those polled think that most illegal immigrants, with some exceptions, should be deported, while 23 percent believe all illegal immigrants should be deported.
Only 5 percent believe all illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay in the United States legally, and 31 percent want most illegal immigrants to stay.
These results are in line with other polls in recent years, suggesting that people's views on immigration have not changed dramatically since the immigration debate reignited in Congress last month, according to Ipsos pollster Julia Clark.
"It's not Americans' views that are shifting. It is that the political climate is ripe for this discussion," after the November election when Hispanics voted overwhelmingly in favor of Democratic President Barack Obama, she said.
"Democrats feel that the time is right to capitalize on their wins and Republicans feel that they had a bad blow and are eager to reach out to Hispanics," she added.
Polls show that most Americans back immigration reform, although they often have different ideas of what that means, with some people favoring looser immigration laws while others want to see greater border security.

Think-tanks take oil money and use it to fund climate deniers
Exxon / Mobil cash supported concerted campaign to undermine case for man-made warming / 7 February 2010 / http://tinyurl.com/ydncytq
An orchestrated campaign is being waged against climate change science to undermine public acceptance of man-made global warming, environment experts claimed last night.
The attack against scientists supportive of the idea of man-made climate change has grown in ferocity since the leak of thousands of documents on the subject from the University of East Anglia (UEA) on the eve of the Copenhagen climate summit last December.
Free-market, anti-climate change think-tanks such as the Atlas Economic Research Foundation in the US and the International Policy Network in the UK have received grants totaling hundreds of thousands of pounds from the multinational energy company Exxon / Mobil. Both organizations have funded international seminars pulling together climate change deniers from across the globe.

FreedomWorks is closely tied to its founder, corporate lobbyist and former Republican Congressman Dick Armey, whose former lobbying firm DLA Piper that he resigned in August 2009, represents Bristol Myers Squibb, among other pharmaceutical companies.

\\\\\\\\\\

The Wall Street front group FreedomWorks is mobilizing get out the vote efforts for Brown this weekend. FreedomWorks organized the very first tea party protests, and has used its extensive staff and resources to mobilize rallies and advocacy campaigns on behalf of corporate interests. Dick Armey, who as a corporate lobbyist represented AIG, Lehman Brothers, and Merrill Lynch during the bailouit, is the leader of FreedomWorks. FreedomWorks is also funded and chaired by Steve Forbes and Frank Sands of Sands Capital Management.

– The Wall Street front group Club for Growth is strongly “boosting” Brown and is expected to run ads in support for him. According to recent disclosures, the Club for Growth is funded by a $1.4 million dollar donation from investor Stephen Jacksons of Stephens Groups Inc, a $1.4 million dollar donation from broker Richard Gilder, and $210,000-$630,000 donations from at least 10 other investors and financial industry professionals. The Club is also supporting a slate of candidates to repeal health reform, while its other endorsed candidates have opposed a financial truth commission

Tea Party climate change deniers funded by BP and other major polluters
Midterm election campaigns of Tea Party favorites DeMint and Inhofe have received over $240,000 / 24 October 2010 / http://tinyurl.com/33n3xvq
BP and several other big European companies are funding the midterm election campaigns of Tea Party favourites who deny the existence of global warming or oppose Barack Obama's energy agenda, the Guardian has learned.
An analysis of campaign finance by Climate Action Network Europe (Cane) found nearly 80% of campaign donations from a number of major European firms were directed towards senators who blocked action on climate change. These included incumbents who have been embraced by the Tea Party such as Jim DeMint, a Republican from South Carolina, and the notorious climate change denier James Inhofe, a Republican from Oklahoma.

Bogus. The majority of respondents in an online poll say they believe that illegal immigrants should be deported.

If Reuters cannot distinguish between a polled sample and the "majority of US citizens" it doesn't give their poll much credibility.

Many other polls (including exit polls of people who actually vote) indicate opinions contrary to the Reuters/Ipsos online gimmick.

But if it suits your conclusion, it must be fact.

Yesssssss, good news this morning , Rogue. Unemployment claims are UP, DJI is crashing 2nd day in a row. Bet that'll show that usurper a thing or two, who does he think he is, getting elected like that and living in the WHITE House? All you need now is for the Obama-hating Repubs to let March 1 slide by. After all, the people only re-elected him, but hey, that doesn't mean he has any say in government. "Yes, the senate's democrat, the presidency is democrat, but hey, we've got this tiny repub tea party in the House that's willing to bankrupt the nation 'cuz we hate Obama. Any other reason? Nope."

First... take a year off and look up the word attitude. Then tell me where is the best place to go purchase one that YOU find comforting so I can buy it for you.
In the mean while...check your Racism Meter. It's about to blow its top. Americans aren't free. White Americans are enslaved by their own fears. Now you're "projecting" your own fears here...that if you speak your mind (First amendment rights) you could die or be imprisoned? That's the bull shit side of America we've been challenging for years honey. It works for some! Those that speak their minds any dayummm way.
Christopher Dorner was a man who was a victim of this bull shit and got tired. That's all. To the oppressors...he was a criminal but to the people of color..we understood.
You understood nothing. Your hate and cynism stand in the way of any understanding. What the hell do we care if he was white, yellow, red or black or from Mars. He took innocent lives, even a wife who surely did none of the bad things ascribed to "whiteys". Dorner was a S.O.B. killer, probably loved to kill. Weird as it is, you have the exact same attitude. "Not my fault, it's everyone else's." Simple. Beautiful.

Yes, I know about those amendments. All Lincoln-inspired and enacted by his protégé, Grant. Great stuff. But, Rogue, I was mainly talking post-1900. Today, Lincoln and Grant would not be tea partyers or birthers, and probably not Republicans. As great as those legislations were, name me one republican-inspired move that benefitted the middle class and the poor class. Any job, any medicaid, any unemployment, any vacation, any maternal benefits enacted by Repubs? Name "em.

Yes, in all "good" acts for minorities, black, native Americans, women, yes, women, there was somre pressure, there always is. One of the pressures, you state it yourself, were the media. The media? pARDON ME. Are you going to tell me that the media were owned by blacks?
Will you try to convince me that blacks alone, 13% of the population, voted Obama in? Must've been a few honkies that voted for him.
What you have is NOT passion, it's simply blind hate, blind hatred. And it's quite understandable, what with what's been done to your race. However, that adttitude of yours is gonna get you into trouble, and you'll remain mired in the mediocrity that it seems you prefer while your black brothers and sisters advance. I predict you'll be labelling them traitors to the cause.
I'm not gonna pull punches because you're black, as this is what you want, deep down inside. Same if you were you white. You don't have a chip on your shoulder, you have a 2 x 4, and I fear it's unbalancing your judgement. Too bad.
Listen white boy...listen to me good. You need to come down off of your own opinionated, delusional, and invisible horse and discard those rose colored glasses. Your posts clearly are anti any thought that blows your simple minded opinions and views about your "delusions of being superior" out of the lime light. That is what happens to children that read to many fairy tales and are shielded from the truth by their parents because the truth is sometimes ugly. I tuned out with your question of "are you trying to convince me" because this is not a battle of wits. This is freedom of speech that you honkies love to cite whenever its convenient for you.

I am not in the business of convincing anyone of anything...and nor do I give that power to idiots. Every thing I said, I meant. My attitude. Like it or not. How you feel is not my concern. This may be the main problem that prevents race relations from moving forward. Too many folk like yourself can't handle how other people view history. You read it in books. We LIVE IT!

So hey, if you don't like or agree with my posts...that's your prerogative because I certainly don't buy your bull shit and your ego crisis.

Weird,jsu tthe other day, Rogue accused Reuters of being leftist and part of the the lame press. I responded that Reuters, Canadian-owned, was the property of the Thompson family, very much a right-wing clan and supporter of the present conservative govt. Rogue ignores all of that and today, ha ha, comes out with Reuter stuff to back his right-wing anti-immigration views.

Sad, because you don't appear to be dumb like those birthers and tea partyers. Just obstinately hating, is all.

You write well, but you still end up replying like LRS, that is, no reply. Just these two, for example : You wrote that whites were forced by media pressure to enact legislation benefitting blacks. I responded by stating that as far as I knew, the media were white, not black. To this, you have no response, your pétard blew up in your face. To the clear fact that a black man is president of the United States of America, that SOME whiteys must've voted for him, you have no response. The only think you haven't said so far is that Obama is some kind of Uncle Tom. Is that next on your agenda? Hope not, but I'm not optimistic.

You spend waaaay too much time trying to tell other people what they understand darlin. You are a complete idiot. All you know how to do is hollar "hate"..not once have I used the word. I don't hate people because I'm not a mindless mass of energy. I certainly have views and feelings on what is done on this planet. How I react and feel and what I do is of no concern of yours, anymore than President Obama's college transcripts are.

So take your opinions and your hate and your pitiful self somewhere and get some help. You can't change me and I'm not broken. Go fix yourself. You need an "attitude" adjustment...the one you have is gonna get you in a lot of trouble.
