Normal people earn a living, pay their bills, don't depend on the government, and don't try to tell others how to lead their lives.
Not so for dumbass Dave.
Nobody gives a sh*t what you think.
Evidently you care because you responded.

Actually intelligent people who understand the danger posed by man made global warming care about everyone's carbon footprint.

Dumbasses like you, likely not.

Nothing wrong with limiting flurocarbons and emmissions type stuff. What's wrong, is when the grubbermint would rather WASTE massive amounts of tax dollars on pie in the sky schemes, rather than appropriate a helping realm in aiding that which has long been proven to work, become even more improved.

Kind of like trying to invent a heat proof cap for volcanoes, if it can't erupt up, it'll erupt out, or down (like the current economy :-)....) so why waste the time and already denigrated resources in doing so.

Reuters)- A 79-year-old Florida woman pleaded guilty on Tuesday to criminal charges of tax evasion through accounts at Swiss bank UBS AG, one of the largest such prosecutions in years.

Mary Estelle Curran pleaded guilty in United States District Court in West Palm Beach, Florida, to two charges of filing false tax returns that failed to report her UBS accounts from 2001 to 2007, court papers show.

Curran's UBS accounts used foundations in Liechtenstein and Panama, two tax havens, to conceal money, the Justice Department said in a statement. She faces six years in prison.

At their peak, in 2007, the accounts held more than $42 million, making the case among the largest of its kind.

Curran's accounts evaded U.S. taxes of $667,700, court papers show. Under onerous U.S. penalties for failing to report the accounts, Curran agreed to pay a civil penalty of more than $26.6 million, representing 50 percent of the high balance in the accounts. In addition, she owes back taxes of more than $667,700, plus penalties and interest, court papers show.

Alex Jones on Gun Control
With Supporters Like Jones ...

I grew up with guns, support the 2nd Amendment, and can’t stand Piers Morgan. But I watched the entire video of Morgan’s interview with Alex Jones and I couldn’t help but cringe throughout. Jones comes off as a complete lunatic. Whatever points he tried to make were far overshadowed by his bizarre behavior. As Piers Morgan commented to Politico,“He was the best advertisement for gun control you could wish for.” Frankly, it is scary to think that someone who is as obviously unstable as Alex Jones is armed to the hilt.

First the NRA’s weird press conference and now this guy? Conservatives need to find better spokesmen on this and other issues.

Here is how the Christian Science Monitor put it:

But if anything, the White House should be happy that Jones is getting so much publicity for his attacks on Morgan’s pro-gun control stance. That’s our second point. The National Rifle Association might be furious: Jones is so outrageous and vituperative that the gun lobby must believe he’s counterproductive.

Sometimes how it’s said matters more than what is said.

America's White Male Problem



Our country is lurching from manufactured crisis to crisis and it isn't about politics; it's about pathology.

January 4, 2013 |




The American political process is being hijacked by a reckless, whining dangerous gang of psychologically damaged white men who are far-right ideologues. I used to be one of them. It's time to tell the truth about our white male problem.

Not everyone who disagrees with the president is a racist. Not even most people who do are. But the continuous attempt by the white far-right in Congress to shut down the government rather than work with our black president has a lot to do with racism. And lurching from manufactured crisis to crisis isn't about politics; it's about pathology. It doesn't make sense politically to take the blame for risking America's future -- and the Republicans know they will take the blame -- so how can we conclude other than something else is going on here?
I’m not talking about the white young male mass murderers we’re afflicted with carrying assault rifles courtesy of the NRA. I’m talking about the white far-right males who hijacked the 112th Congress and are set to destroy the 113th. They have metaphorically done to our country what the killer in Newtown literally did to 20 children, and for the same apparent reason: alienation from the mainstream and retreat to a paranoid delusional fantasy land of -- literal -- mental impairment.

This has less to do with politics and more to do with the fear and mental illness that grips a willfully ignorant minority of white males.

Republicans must block Kerry and Hagel

Moreover, as the FPI points out, if Republicans, after forcing Susan Rice to withdraw her name from consideration, swoon over Kerry and Hagel and vote to confirm them, it will only lead ordinary Americans to think that Republicans are an anti-woman, anti-black party which opposed a black woman only to vote for two stridently liberal white men.

And Rice’s mistaken comments were a tiny infraction compared to the mistakes and extremely liberal views of Chuck Hagel and John Kerry.

The anxiety of losing white long-held power at the expense of minority and marginalized constituencies like women and gays has metastasized into outright hatred of everything and anything President Obama would suggest. Racism has combined with fear.

The fear is of a world in which white (mostly) evangelical Republicans lose power... forever. The country has moved on, but the safe Republican gerrymandered districts have not. These folks are literally living in a fool's paradise whose time has come and gone.

The white Republican hijackers of our Congress talk about smaller federal government and out-of-control federal spending, states’ rights and the Defense of Marriage Act. These are the defenders of 30-round magazines and personal arsenals, Kevlar-piercing cop-killing bullets, access to unlimited numbers of semiautomatic weapons and lethal handguns carried in public -- all in the name of the Second Amendment.

The lies about our federal government -- that somehow they are in league with the United Nations, to the point where we can't even sign an international declaration on the rights of the handicapped!– have nothing to do with the stated objectives. This is like a family argument where an uncle shows up at the dinner table and argues with everyone not because he actually disagrees but because he's feeling alienated from the family.

Simple palpable hatred drives these people to willful ignorance. The white males insisting on carrying guns (in a country where violent crime is way down!) are scared, not of muggers, but of the fact that their imaginary reality is coming unstuck.
They're too smart to believe that Fox News spin on reality is reality. Most of these folks are too smart to believe in their evangelical theology either. I'll bet at heart many are atheists or at least doubters, well aware of the hypocrisies and inanities of evangelical Christianity. But they put on an act of upholding what they believe are the traditional standards we need to live by, which really boils down to little more than white resentment.

state of panic exists because Republican members of Congress demand a state of paralysis. They want to freeze the world as it is because the new world doesn't have room for white male bigots who base their lives on Bronze Age mythology and white, privileged, Jeffersonian-style institutional racism. Their real ideology has nothing to do with gun rights, fighting against abortion or reducing the size of the federal deficit, but has everything to do with their own personal psychological turmoil.

Sen. Orrin Hatch warned that Utah’s “special" political climate puts the GOP in danger of being dominated by extremists who don’t share the party’s values.

“Thank goodness they’re not the majority,” Hatch told the Deseret News after attending Monday’s swearing-in ceremony for Gov. Gary Herbert and other state executive officeholders.“But we’ve got to watch that or we’ll end up with a state dominated by radicals.”
