Barack Obama, our next President

Yeah Carol , quote one scientist who's talking about astrophysics not climate science.
Climate change is not phony baloney stupid, it's backed up by actual evidence. We've been recording temperatures for over a century and we've been studying carbon dioxide levels for nearly as long and there is a direct correlation between the two. The latest convert to what climatologists have known for a long time is Dr Richard A. Muller whose Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature project was funded by the Koch brothers to disprove global warming and human induced climate change. He stated after studying the data;
“Three years ago I identified problems in previous climate studies that, in my mind, threw doubt on the very existence of global warming. Last year, following an intensive research effort involving a dozen scientists, I concluded that global warming was real and that the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. I’m prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. I’m now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause.”
He further stated;
“that the average temperature of the earth’s land has risen by 2˝ degrees Fahrenheit over the past 250 years, including an increase of 1˝ degrees over the most recent 50 years. Moreover, it appears likely that essentially all of this increase results from the human emission of greenhouse gases.”
You constantly claim to be a religious person and yet you shill for the people who despoil Gods creation in order to enrich themselves while caring not a whit for the damage they cause that affects the rest of us. Idiots like you will be the death of this planet.
The effect of sunspots and the shift in the magnetic poles has become the scientific focus of climate change. Not to mention it's a natural phenomenon.

Your abortion stance with regard to politics is mindless because the issue is entirely in the hands of the courts. Electing "pro-life" politicians accomplishes nothing, particularly imbeciles like Todd Akin.

Your only hope is long-term changes in public opinion.

Led by Sen. Mike Enzi, Republicans Will Vote to Raise Taxes & Tax iTunes Downloads

One day I will have a scorecard for conservatives. And those Republicans who vote for the Marketplace Fairness Act in any form will be blackballed from that scorecard. Until then, I hope groups like Club for Growth and Heritage Action will score against it. It is a damnable piece of legislation whose backers are a who’s who of major corporations.

The number of murders isn't a disgrace??

The number of poor with no healthcare is a national disgrace.

The way we treat Americans is a national disgrace.

We have more people in prison, per capita, than any other major nation, including communist China and Russia. That's a national disgrace.

You stupidly want to force women to have babies they don't want and can't afford.

Then you offer nothing to help them, allowing these infants to grow up in poverty and end up committing crimes because they have nothing.

Your entire policy is a sham, designed to punish women, not help them.

The Supreme Court declared Abortion to be legal almost 40 years ago.

Yet you wingnuts have done your level best to make the law of the land impotent. Everyone sees it, old white men making laws for women.

And stupid old harpies like you imposing your moral values on others.

While you smoke, eat junk and expect the rest of us to pay for your medical expenses, all self destructive.

But have another piece of pie and a cigarette, you hypocrite!!

Jesus Christ hates people like you, who pervert his beliefs.

I can't recall one republican presidential candidate who voluntarily brought up the issue of abortion during the debates.
They can't ignore the question.
Abortion will never go away. It's the number of abortions and the progressive secularist push to legalize abortions at any phase of development that should concern all of us if, in fact, we are still a civilized society.

It proves nothing.

FL and TX used Federal Stimulus money to balance their budgets, while complaining about the stimulus at the same time. I'm sure the rest did the same, but won't bother to look.

----------

""NEW YORK (CNNMoney)-- Texas Gov. Rick Perry likes to tell Washington to stop meddling in state affairs. He vocally opposed the Obama administration's 2009 stimulus program to spur the economy and assist cash-strapped states.

Perry also likes to trumpet that his state balanced its budget in 2009, while keeping billions in its rainy day fund.

But he couldn't have done that without a lot of help from ... guess where? Washington.

Turns out Texas was the state that depended the most on those very stimulus funds to plug nearly 97% of its shortfall for fiscal 2010, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Even budget deficits are bigger in Texas
Texas, which crafts a budget every two years, was facing a $6.6 billion shortfall for its 2010-2011 fiscal years. It plugged nearly all of that deficit with $6.4 billion in Recovery Act money, allowing it to leave its $9.1 billion rainy day fund untouched.

"Stimulus was very helpful in getting them through the last few years," said Brian Sigritz, director of state fiscal studies for the National Association of State Budget Officers, said of Texas.

Even as Perry requested the Recovery Act money, he railed against it. On the very same day he asked for the funds, he set up a petition titled "No Government Bailouts."

"Join our fight and add your voice to a growing list of several thousand Americans who are fed up with this irresponsible spending that threatens our future," Perry wrote on his blog on Feb. 18, 2009.""

Actually, in Connecticut, we have a balanced budget amendment, so there is one more state. The caveat is the being a Democrat state, the corrupt Democrats simply ignore the amendment and find ways to subvert the constitution.

Peggy Noonan:“War Almost Killed the GOP”

The quote in my title is actually from the deck of her article, so she probably didn’t write those words. But they capture the gist of her column on the Iraq War:

It muddied up the meaning of conservatism and bloodied up its reputation. No Burkean prudence or respect for reality was evident. Ronald Reagan hated the Soviet occupation of the Warsaw Pact countries—really, hated the oppression and violence. He said it, named it, and forced the Soviets to defend it. He did not, however, invade Eastern Europe to liberate it. He used military power sparingly. He didn’t think the right or lucky thing would necessarily happen. His big dream was a nuclear-free world, which he pursued daringly but peacefully.

Noonan notes, in parallel with TAC‘s cover story, that the war blew the GOP’s reputation as the party of sober foreign policy and economic stewardship. It also “stoked an atmosphere in which doubters and critics were dismissed as weak, unpatriotic, disloyal.… A conservative movement that had prided itself, in the 1970s and 1980s, on its intellectualism … seemed no longer capable of an honest argument.”

Why Tea Partiers Are Boycotting Fox News
Is Fox News going soft?
That is what a number of Tea Party activists are saying and they are organizing a boycott to protest the conservative station’s coverage, especially what they view as the network’s relative silence in investigating the attacks on a diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.
“Particularly after the election, Fox keeps turning to the left,” said Stan Hjerlied, 75, of Fort Collins, Colo., and a participant in the boycott. He pointed to an interview Fox News CEO Roger Ailes gave after the election in which he said that the Republican Party and Fox News need to modernize, especially around immigration.“So we are really losing our only conservative network.”
The three-day boycott lasted Thursday morning through Sunday morning, and is the second time this group of activists have gone Fox-free in an effort to steer the coverage. Organizers say a two-day boycott earlier this month knocked 20 percent off of the network’s regular viewership.(A Daily Beast analysis of the same data showed that the boycott had little effect.)
A spokeswoman for Fox News did not respond to a request for comment.
A leader of the boycott, Kathy Amidon, of Nashville, declined an interview, instead directing The Daily Beast to a website, Benghazi-Truth. The website, a single-page, 23,000-word manifesto complete with multicolored fonts, supposedly incriminating videos of Fox News’s complicity in a coverup, and communist propaganda photographs, is kept by someone who identifies himself online as “Proe Graphique,” and who other members of boycott described as someone who works “in New York media.”
By way of explanation, the website reports:“People ask why not all mainstream media? Why just Boycott FOX? The answer, again, is that FOX needs the Tea Party/conservatives more than the conservatives need FOX after FOX turned left, basically selling out the people who made FOX successful in an attempt to earn an extra buck. FOX is extremely vulnerable to these boycotts while the rest of the MSM doesn’t need us at all, to speak of.”
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/03...
it's real shame that reality has crept into the FOX rhetoric.
but losing an election that FOX said could not be lost will do that to people. well, except for those who are still living in Limbaughland.
FOX is Controlled by the Modern Liberals Which Rupert Murdoch is one.

Rupert Murdoch Political activities in Australia

Murdoch found a political ally in John McEwen, leader of the Australian Country Party (now known as the National Party of Australia), who was governing in coalition with the larger Menzies-Holt Liberal Party. From the very first issue of The Australian Murdoch began taking McEwen's side in every issue that divided the long-serving coalition partners.(The Australian, 15 July 1964, first edition, front page: "Strain in Cabinet, Liberal-CP row flares.") It was an issue that threatened to split the coalition government and open the way for the stronger Australian Labor Party to dominate Australian politics. It was the beginning of a long campaign that served McEwen well.

Beware the National Fertilizer Association

Let's check in for a moment with the far-left fringes of the gun debate, the kind of people who apparently can't read or don't understand the meaning of words like "shall not be infringed."

"Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose." These are words of an extremist.

Only some liberal could come up with this argument, which continues by claiming that any number of prohibitions and restrictions on guns passed by various legislatures, state and federal, are well within the rights guaranteed under the Constitution.

Who could have such obvious disrespect toward the clear meaning of the Founding Fathers?

Unfortunately for the gun lobby, this was the argument put forth by none other than Antonin Scalia, associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, considered by many people to be the foremost conservative legal mind in America today. His position on almost everything (except when he finds it inconvenient) boils down to taking the words of the Constitution literally. There is no interpretation needed, really -- the words mean what they mean and that's that, regardless of changing times.

His argument in this case comes from a decision in 2008 that overturned a local ban against owning firearms for personal use in Washington, D.C. The 5-4 decision codified the notion that the Second Amendment refers to a person's individual right to bear arms, not just in the context of a militia.

Of course, not everyone agrees with the court on this, but it is, until further notice, the law of the land. That's how it works with the Supreme Court. There's no further appeal, and its decision stands unless a future Supreme Court wants to disagree or the Constitution is amended.

But it does put the lie to what many gun-rights supporters consider their trump card. It's a widespread belief that because gun rights are in the Constitution, that's the end of the story.

You can argue whether the various proposals currently on the table are a good idea. That's what's going on, supposedly, in the state Assembly and in Congress. But the argument that these discussions are illegitimate is a losing one.

The focus for conservatives at the present time should only be on the survival of the economy and the nation. Things will fall into
place in due time once sanity and common sense is restored.

However, as long as we condone the killing of the most vulnerable among us simply because of irresponsible behavior in too many instances, we can never expect anything good to come out of it.

Complacency and self-absorption has been the undoing of many societies in the past and empires have fallen for the same reasons.

Yet another issue Repugnants will lose future elections over.

You've lost elections over your stupid policies towards immigrants.

You've lost elections over your stupid policies towards women.

You've lost elections over your stupid policies towards gays.

Soon you will lose elections over Climate Change.

Nitwits like you and Carol appear to enjoy losing elections.

It gives you something to bitch and whine about.

----------
""Is there a scientific consensus on climate change?

The major scientific agencies of the United States — including the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)— agree that climate change is occurring and that humans are contributing to it. In 2010, the National Research Council concluded that "Climate change is occurring, is very likely caused by human activities, and poses significant risks for a broad range of human and natural systems".[1] Many independent scientific organizations have released similar statements, both in the United States and abroad. This doesn't necessarily mean that every scientist sees eye to eye on each component of the climate change problem, but broad agreement exists that climate change is happening and is primarily caused by excess greenhouse gases from human activities.

Scientists are still researching a number of important questions, including exactly how much Earth will warm, how quickly it will warm, and what the consequences of the warming will be in specific regions of the world. Scientists continue to research these questions so society can be better informed about how to plan for a changing climate. However, enough certainty exists about basic causes and effects of climate change to justify taking actions that reduce future risks.""

http://epa.gov/climatechange/facts.html

----------

Want proof how bad your beliefs will be for your party??

""For the first time since the United States entered a deep recession five years ago, 70% of Americans now say they believe global warming is a reality, according to researchers.

In a report released Thursday by the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, authors wrote that America’s concern about global warming is now at its highest level since 2008, and that 58% of Americans expressed worries about it""
