If you bothered to pull your head out of your fat butt & read the article, it said scientist never said there was a trend towards global cooling. It said that it reported cooler global temperatures & the press did the rest.
Interesting. even with "my head in my ass", i can read better than you. From your article

"The supposed "global cooling" consensus among scientists in the 1970s frequently offered by global-warming skeptics as proof that climatologists can't make up their minds is a myth, according to a survey of the scientific literature of the era." - Among scientists.

Also from your article;

"However, as Peterson notes in the paper, "even cursory review of the news media coverage of the issue reveals that, just as there was no consensus at the time among scientists, so was there also no consensus among journalists." - no consensus among journalist.

It's what politicians do. Laws are to control. The problem is when laws are written with emotion and not logic.

Confucius say: If you are active militarily that means you are very likely fat, stoopid, and ignorant. It kind of goes with the job description. A military background is hardly a testament to good breeding. We let illegal aliens from Guam into the military and you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone fatter and stoopider than that.

Confucius say: the difference between a real veteran and a fencepost is that you don't have to pay a fencepost to do its job and to support its lazy ass for 40 or so years after its "service." Not to mention a fencepost is actually successful at what it does.

You know who pushed this latest progressive stupidity? A group of non veteran, non military, non serving leftists who have no intention of ever serving themselves.
How long before the lawsuits from women who get injured start? Because that's exactly what will happen.
Where the f*ck have you been? Women have been killed & injured in Afghanistan & Iraq.

Where are all those lawsuits.

I never said there was a consensus among journalists.

I said journalists created the story that was not accurate.

CHICAGO At least five people were gunned down in a single day in Chicago, including a 34-year-old man whose mother had already lost her three other children to shootings.
Chicago's homicide count eclipsed 500 last year for the first time since 2008.

Doesn't Chicago have one of the nation's strictest gun laws? Aren't Obama and most of his administration from Chicago? And why didn't it work there if they think it's going to work for the rest of the country?
MOST ALL OF THE KILLINGS ARE GANG RELATED OR BY GANG MEMBERS WHO THINK THEY ARE GANGSTERS.
They ARENT NUTHING BUT DROPOUTS DRUGHEADS AND DRUGDEALING PUNKS WHO NEVER GREW UP WHY DOSENT LAW INFORCEMENT INCLUDING THE NATIONAL GUARD CLEAN UP THEESE PUNKS ? THEY KNOW WHO THEY ARE AND KNOW WHERE THEYRE AT !
ITS NOT THE GUNS ITS THE IDIOTS WHO LET NON LAW ABIDING CITIZENS RUN THE STREETS WHERE PEOPLE HAVE TO LOCK THEIR DOORS.
Me? I dont lock my doors.,... I want an intruder to make the mistake of comming in my house !
I WILL BLAST HIS ASS CLEAN THROUGH THE DOOR BACK OUTSIDE.
Then call a pest controll to come get whats left.

No budget from Reid and the senate for 4 years, what are they hiding? What is Obama hiding? massive spending increases? I get very suspicious when politicians hide things, we all should.
Got behind a gal at the store today who was buying a printer and other things with guess what? An Obama EBT card.
Est.$500 billion a year in give a ways, I say it's too much. This is actual cash, not phantom tax breaks.
Bull on a number of fronts. One, EBT was established under Bush. Two, you can't buy a printer retail with an EBT card.

Got anymore fairy tales?
