I'm certain Obama wil not be fooled so easily.

You have a lot of nerve calling me the nitwit after that post.

Flex-i-ble: adj. 1. Capable of being bent or flexed; pliable.
b. Capable of being bent repeatedly without injury or damage.
2. Susceptible to influence or persuasion. 3. Fooled easily.

I added the last one just to prove a point and it fit so nicely with the others.

NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla.-

Two lemurs were captured early Monday morning after they escaped from their cages and one scratched a 2-year-old girl.

About 2 a.m., North Miami Beach Police received the call about the lemurs which were loose near 2049 NE 173rd Street.

"This is the first time I've been dispatched to a call like this," said North Miami Beach Police Sgt. Richard Rand.

Officers arrived to find one lemur in a tree and the other one block away.

A 2-year-old girl, who was returning home with her parents, was scratched as she got out of her family's car when the lemur jumped into her arms. The child suffered scratches to her face and was treated at the scene.

Surveillance video showed a dog barking at one of the lemurs as it walked across a fence.

"They were scared. They were running around. Everybody was chasing them, a lot of lights," said Julio Hincapie, who owns the lemurs.

Officers have reunited the lemurs with Hincapie. Police say he claims someone broke into the cages in his back yard by cutting the lock.

"Someone was trying to steal two of my lemurs," said Hincapie.

"He walks around with them like anybody, just like a regular pet. Instead of having a dog, he got a monkey," said neighbor Carlos Lezcano.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says it's common for people to have pet lemurs, but owners must have proper permits.

More science involved in the effect of solar flares on global temperatures than there is in man-made global warming, which is largely political.
But, go ahead, just ignore real science for Algore BS.
Doubtful.

The science of global warming is not political

Te right decided to make it political.

Its just typical. The Republican Party ignores what is best for the planet for the betterment of their pathetic party.

Just like they did with the good of our country.

Back when Republicans were true patriots, they believed in Man made global warming.

Since then, they discovered it was easier to get votes by dumbing down their base. A really easy task.

Oh, say, does that Star Spangled Banner yet wave,
O'er the land of the free
And the home of the brave.

Well, it used to.

Our military is about to become weakened.
And our freedoms thrown to the four winds.

But it used to. Warts and all.

Or the majority of the people in this country have one too many screws loose.
So you're saying you had no viable alternative? Why then all the sour grapes just 'cause your side couldn't cut the mustard?

What is it with you people? You libs keep bringing it up and then blame us because he's black. Half black/half white to be exact.
Can we NOT like a black politician because of his policies? Is that what you're saying? Really? Is that what you're saying?
Sure, soon as y'all lose this retro racism. Don't think it has gone unnoticed that NO white "liberal" gets nearly the flack as do those darkies. They get an "F" just for having the temerity to show up let alone have an opposing view. Let's hear one of y'all frame Clinton as a lower primate. You're lying if you don't know it, see it, and deep in that darkest corner of yourself believe it.
