Flack lives in El Hierro now? Hey, it was 40 degrees in Florida this morning; can you keep your coldness to yourselves?
El Hierro is in the Canary Islands where another island has cracked half and threatens to slide into the sea. If it does a tsunami between 50 and 100 feet or higher will hit the east coast of the United States some 8 hours later. It will make the ones in the recent past look like a wave in a kiddie pool. A wave that big will go all the way across Florida into the gulf.

Why do you say that? Give me three reasons. I'm confident those assumptions can be discredited and Bush was not the one to blame.
Here you go. Sorry you only need 3 since there are more.
1. Bush started a war with a nation that had nothing to do with 9/11 just to show his dad he was a man. That war cost 4000 American soldiers lives, 33,000 wounded and an estimated $4 Trillion.
.
2. In 2003 Bush signed the American Dream Down Payment Act that he said HIS administration had come up with. That new Law changed 4 major items of home loans. No down payment required, no background checks, up to 150% of home value could be loaned and up to 5 years of deferred payments. This is the reason that in 2008 90% of all home loans defaulted on were LESS than 5 years old. This banking and Wall St home loan scam that the new Bush Law created was the downfall of the US economy.
.
3. Bush lowered the tax rates to the lowest point ever in US history. Lowered so much that America could no longer pay its Bills. Bush handed Obama the US credit card with the largest debt ever and only enough income to pay the reoccurring monthly bills but not the balance. That is why no matter who is President the debt will double every 10 years unless major changes are done.

Bob McDonnell, Virginia Governor, Introduces Abortion Coverage Ban

With this amendment, Governor McDonnell has launched yet another effort to intrude in women’s health care decisions and block Virginians access to comprehensive reproductive health care," said Caroline O’Shea, deputy director of NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia, in a statement. "Coverage for safe, legal abortion care -- a procedure one in three women will access in their lifetimes - is a basic benefit that most insurance plans currently include. By banning women from using their own funds to purchase plans that include this common benefit, Gov. McDonnell is restricting Virginians’ personal economic decisions as well as their access to comprehensive care."

An Upstate lawmaker is changing a bill he introduced in the state House of Representatives that would ban doctors from discussing gun safety with their patients.

Rep. Joshua Putnam, R-Piedmont, said backlash from doctors around the state has forced him to reconsider the original intent of House Bill 3416.

“Some doctors, they don’t like the way it’s worded right now,” Putnam said.“I’ve been working with the Medical Association. I have an amendment that will make them happy.”

Putnam’s original bill, which 56 other Republican lawmakers have signed on to support, would make it illegal for a doctor to ask a patient if he or she owns a gun. The bill lays out three exceptions — doctors could ask a patient about gun ownership if he was being treated for a gunshot wound, was mentally ill or was being abused.

The amended bill would essentially shore up the status quo, Putnam said. Discussing gun safety with patients would be left up to individual doctors — they can choose to talk about it or not.

Rep. Mike Sottile, R-Isle of Palms, said he supported the original bill, but needs to take “another good, hard look” at it.

“Honestly when it was first presented to me, I thought it made sense,” Sottile said.

When he decided to support the legislation, Sottile said he had not considered how it may be important for pediatricians to talk to young children about gun safety.

“I don’t mind telling you when my daughter came along, I had a handgun and I got rid of it. I didn’t feel comfortable having it in the house,” Sottile said.“I think gun safety is paramount. Whatever you can do to help people own guns and be responsible with them, I don’t have a problem with.”

South Carolina ranks 13th in the country for firearm deaths, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, which tracks a variety of health benchmarks in the U.S.

Here are the facts, Dumnbass.
All, including Republicans, in Congress representing the southern states voted no.
All outside the South voted yes (except a couple Republicans).
It was regional.
I do undertand the need of the rabid right to try to paint Democrats as racist in order to hide the Republican racists they welcomed under their tent.
Democrats have been the instigators and propagators of all the racial strife in America since it began. What you are essentially saying is, if we'd had no southern democratic slave states, we wouldn't have had a Civil War. I couldn't agree more.

Yeah, sorry it's been colder than normal up here too, there is a persistent dip in the jet stream bringing cold air down from Canada, until it flattens out some we expect more of the same.

Just weather patterns folks, they do not equate to global warming or global cooling.
