Barack Obama, our next President

This is the Messiah you follow and it's a direct reflection on your sick rationalization of every stupid thing he does.
...and he's done one helluva lot of them....
He's OUR Messiah for the next four years! Nothing to rationalize so far. Things are going great for Democrats, too bad you aren't able to appreciate greatness. Try turning off FOX.

You'll never get anywhere, period. If earned wealth is an anathema to you, what is it you strive for, mediocrity, insignificance? If that's your goal in life, you're living in the wrong country.
Um, where is it everybody should be trying to get, pray, tell? Is there someplace special? Are you there now? Then what're you doing here with us? Multitasking, huh? Personally, I feel striving for wealth is just fine. What's not fine, is when those assiduous strivers attempt to make it mandatory that I become one of them. I like to fish and fuck. I'm very good at those things, I strive to be good at them. But I don't insist that you do too. In fact, I much prefer it if you don't, frankly. Neither do I respect or admire your striving more than my own.

Some of us strive for money. Some of us strive for love. The two are very different. If you are a money striver, that does not make your striving superior in any way to the love-striver. But most importantly, the love of money does not give you the right to exert power over those of us who do not share your values.

So, I'll tell you again: stay the fuck out of my business and my life. Keep your beliefs to yourself. Do not attempt to "buy" my river or I will slaughter you and yours like the ignorant pigs you are.

That climate change is a natural occurance on this planet. It happened before man and it will continue after we are gone.

I agree, trying to explain how to use logical thinking to this bunch of right wing morons is hardly worth the bother. I haven't seen even a flicker of intelligence from any of your posts so that's why I've pretty much ignored you. Ask if you'd like to be schooled, I'll do my best.

The planet is not static. It has many ways to deal with heat, CO2, and any other nonsense you want to think up. It has been around 5 billion years. We have been around maybe 100,000. 71% of the Earth's surface is covered by ocean. Who knows how much plankton lives there and what amount of CO2 they use every day. Throw in land plants and I think you have a pretty good filtering system.

Want to drive a libtard crazy? Ask them, at any given time, how much cloud cover or rainfall there is on the planet. They can't tell you.

Government employees with pensions might like this idea from a civil rights icon:

Jesse Jackson Proposes Creation of a New Lender

By WILLIAM ALDEN

The Rev. Jesse Jackson has often spoken out about banks' abuses in minority communities.

There’s been no shortage of ideas for how to jump-start economic growth in the aftermath of the financial crisis. But a new one comes with a high-profile backer: the Rev. Jesse L. Jackson.

At a three-day conference in New York that began on Wednesday, Mr. Jackson discussed a proposal for increasing the availability of capital by using pension money to make loans in low-income communities. The idea is getting a prominent debut at the 16th annual Wall Street Project Economic Summit, hosted by Mr. Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition and the Citizenship Education Fund.

“We’ve got to think outside the present fiscal-cliff-debt-ceiling box,” Mr. Jackson said in an interview on Wednesday.“We must have some plan for reconstruction.”

The conference features some big names, with a keynote speech from former President Bill Clinton. The comptroller of New York, John C. Liu, who oversees the city’s pension funds, is speaking on Thursday.

Mr. Jackson, who regularly speaks out about banks’ abuses in minority communities, envisions the creation of a lender similar to development banks in other countries. With political gridlock in Washington, and with banks limiting access to capital, a separate solution is needed, Mr. Jackson said, comparing the idea to the Marshall Plan.

Using pension money would simultaneously achieve another of Mr. Jackson’s goals: encouraging pensions to focus on socially responsible investments.

“New York would be a great place to do this,” Mr. Jackson said.“You’ve got Harlem and Wall Street on the same island.”

There is precedent in the city for getting creative with pension funds. Mr. Jackson recalled the fiscal crisis in 1975, when the investment banker Felix G. Rohatyn engineered a rescue. That plan involved pension funds backing the city’s debt.

Fundamentally, Mr. Jackson’s proposal is about leveling the playing field.

“We bailed out the banks,” Mr. Jackson said.“We didn’t bail out the victims of the recession.”

I have a friend in West Virginia funnily enough. He's a terrible poacher and shoots essentially everything all year round.

A striver from the city bought the small island in front of his house and posted the land. We ignored the signs and hunted and fished the land as we always had.

One day, the new owner - the striver I mentioned _ appeared on the river bank with a huge German Shepherd and a pistol on his hip. He was nattily dressed too, I remember that. We were duck hunting and at the very moment the striver unleashed his basso command two teal shot down the path between the island and the mainland. My good friend shot the one on the left and I shot the one on the right. We were using my dogs and I set them on the limp birds before they could wash away downriver.

The striver, obviously upset that he had been ignored, unholstered the pistol. At that point my good friend unloaded his Remington pump into the big, proud dog. Where once stood 100 lbs of perfect German breeding and thousands of dollars in training fees, now, there was a red spot with ears.

Collect your money. Save it, steal it, wall it up with bricks in the basement. Take it out at night and count it. Make love to it. But if you ever make the mistake of thinking that money buys obedience from others then mark my words above. Your money means nothing to me. If you think it does then we are likely to quarrel. If we quarrel then I will make you the unhappiest man in the world because I don't fight fair either.

So. In light of the above, can't we all just get along?
