Global warming ended 16 years ago-

"The world stopped getting warmer almost 16 years ago, according to new data released last week.
The figures, which have triggered debate among climate scientists, reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012, there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures.
This means that the ‘plateau’ or ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996. Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years.
The new data, compiled from more than 3,000 measuring points on land and sea, was issued quietly on the internet, without any media fanfare, and, until today, it has not been reported."

Wow, it looks like global warming is a natural trend that occurs in cycles.

I wouldn't know.
I am not more interested in the NRA than I am the ACLU.
Neither has anything to do with my rights and neither will defend them as well as the individuals in this country who will never let you people ("You people" meant however you want to take it)attempt to take our rights.
I'm sure the link was interesting.
I'll never know.

Who gave Reuters on 9/12 a detailed description of a protest that NEVER HAPPENED?

"Some of those who took part in the initial demonstration in Benghazi insisted it was a spontaneous, unplanned public protest which had begun relatively peacefully. Anger over the film also saw an unruly protest at the U.S. embassy across the Egyptian border in Cairo on Tuesday evening, with protesters scaling the walls.

Local journalists also saw an eclectic gathering of people infuriated by religious sentiment but few of them bearing arms and most not appearing affiliated with hardline Islamist groups.

"When we had heard that there was a film that was insulting to the Prophet, we, as members of the public, and not as militia brigades, we came to the consulate here to protest and hold a small demonstration," said a 17-year-old student named Hamam, who spoke to Reuters at the devastated compound on Wednesday."

This is nothing but pure propaganda.

The Obama team still won't answer why they blamed the Benghazi attacks on a video instead of terrorism.
That was the information they received from intelligence sources. After they received the correct information, they immediately changed their account of what happened. It's old news now so please stop beating that same drum. Let's move on and get back to the business of getting our President re-elected.

In response to a question about security arrangements in Libya from Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, Eric Nordstrom—who served as the State Department's top security official in Libya—said a conversation before the incident with the regional director for Near Eastern Affairs left him believing "it was abundantly clear, we were not going to get resources until the aftermath of an incident. And the question that we would ask is, again,'How thin does the ice have to get before someone falls through?'" This is hardly a ringing endorsement of the administration's efforts to keep people safe.

There is also an unfolding potential campaign finance scandal Obama must now answer for. "The independently owned website Obama.com , which steers users to the president's campaign donation website, gets most of its traffic from foreign countries, raising questions about the legality of tens of millions of small dollar donations to the campaign, according to a new report" issued by the Government Accountability Institute, the Washington Examiner reported Monday.

"The president's outreach and fundraising," the paper reported, "have targeted websites in Chinese, Arabic, Thai, and Korean."

[See a collection of political cartoons on the 2012 campaign.]

As a general rule, donations from foreign nationals to U.S. political campaigns are illegal. Yet the Obama campaign, as it did in 2008, is generating significant financial support in this arena, often in contributions so small as to not trigger the basic reporting requirements concerning the identity of donors that are standard for contributions over $200.

Instead of addressing either of these things, we have the president's defense of Big Bird, which may be simple enough to explain. The "Muppeteer" who operates the character's costume is, according to some reports, paid around $300,000 per year, which makes Big Bird a "1 percenter" whose tax bill would go up under the Obama plan to let the tax rates in America's highest wage earners rise after the first of the year.

[Take the U.S. News Poll: Does the Big Bird Ad Prove the Obama Campaign Is Getting Desperate?]

The Simpson-Bowles plan for long-term deficit reduction contemplates an increase in federal government spending from its post-war historical average of just over 18 percent to almost 20 or 21 percent, which translates in a revenue spike of $5 trillion over 10 years. That, coupled with the plan's proposed reduction or elimination of $1 trillion in tax deductions and tax credits means, if enacted, Simpson-
