How dumb are Carol & Moocher EED?
I posted this in response top Carol's saying there is no Global Warming because the climate has always fluctuated.
I posted this: "Carol's weight has fluctuated throughout the years. Therefore the ten pounds she gained last week could not be due to her consumption last week of 6 family sized bags of potato chips & 30 big macs."
Carol's weight represents climate. Climate fluctuating is represented by Catol's weight fluctuation.
Carol recently had a weight change. This represents the change in the average global temperature the past 10-15 years.
Carol blames the recent weight gain as normal up & down fluctuations.
Carol Blames the rise in ave. global temperature as just normal fluctuations.
Prior to that weight gain, Carol had eaten numerous bags of potato chips & 30 big macs.
Prior to the rise in global temperatures, the world had been pumping more & more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
Carol refuses to think her gorging had anything to do with her weight gain just like Carol refuses to believe pollution had anything to do with rising temperatures.
But hey, dumbass Eed, have a fit because you were too GD stupid to get it.
A normal person drinking a glass of water would experience a weight change proportionally greater than the global temperature change over the last 100 years.

As the Washington Times points out, the provision’s success is viewed by many as a victory by companies like Syngenta Corp, Cargill, Monsanto and affiliated PACs that have donated $7.5 million to members of Congress since 2009, and $372,000 to members of the Senate Appropriations Committee.
It remains unclear whether the bill’s six-month expiration means that the provision will be short-lived. Regardless, Food Democracy Now has begun a campaign calling on US President Barack Obama to veto the Continuing Resolution spending bill, which seems unlikely as HR 933 includes a sweeping amount of government funding.

If so that would be the only thing adult about the loser. I still visualize these ignoramuses lined up in front of the computers there at "Shady Pines" (where their black nurses aids can laugh at them behind their backs)and furiously pounding the keyboards with their dent heads and oozing drool. They don't even notice that they're getting higher up their monitors since they thought the "up to 300 lbs" on their depends referred to load limit not size.

Speaking of idiots, are the Okie Congressmen all demanding that disaster relief for THEM, not NY/NJ, cannot be sent until it's been offset by spending cuts elsewhere? Oh, and did you see the Weeper of the House crying because Moore was in Cole's neighborhood...guess he never went to Xenia sober, huh?

The ever-growing movement to repeal the very controversial Monsanto Protection Act has garnered the support of both the Tea Party and the green movement, thereby breeding strange bedfellows. The Monsanto Protection Act “allows Monsanto and other companies to continue selling genetically engineered seeds, even if a court has blocked them from doing so”.
In recent months, federal courts have ruled against the Department of Agriculture, who approved the sale of genetically engineered seeds, stating that the agency acted hastily in their approval, without giving careful consideration to the seeds’“potential harm“.
In response to these rulings, the seed industry lobby fought back and was successful in attaching the Monsanto Protection Act as a resolution to the spending bill signed into law in March. Sen. John Tester (D-Mont.) took note of the rider and spoke out against it on the Senate floor. Unfortunately, his voice fell on a typically empty floor, resulting in Tester’s failure to garner enough votes to block the passage of the rider. This bill then was signed by Obama bin Lying...

Then there's this:
FBI kills Florida man with suspected ties to Boston bomb suspect: NBC
MIAMI (Reuters)- An FBI agent shot and killed a Florida man with suspected links to the Boston Marathon bombings early on Wednesday, NBC News reported.
NBC said the suspect was being questioned and was originally cooperative, but was fatally shot after attacking the agent.
The Orlando Sentinel said a friend had identified the dead man as 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev of Orlando. The newspaper quoted the friend, Khusn Taramiv, as saying Todashev was being investigated as part of the Boston bombings and knew bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev because both were mixed martial-arts fighters.

The so-called "Monsanto Protection Act," a provision protecting the biotech giant from litigation no matter what they do has found a lot of opposition. Now, even the Tea Party is lashing back against it.

This is the kind of thinking that has diverted the Tea Party away from tax issues and toward nominating anti-abortion brain-dead idiots like Todd Akin.

If this is where the Tea Party is headed, time for Republicans to let the idiots play with themselves and their fantasies.

<quoted text> How how about you read your post instead of blabbing off at the mouth! Procurement process, there has to be a threat. There was no threat under Clinton's watch. There were no wars! So please explain how Clinton would know if a design approved by the previous administration would or wouldn't work. That's total bullshit! Our armed forces weren't even worried about IEDs until Bush decided to invade Iraq for no fucking reason at all &, if it took a 5yr plan to get them designed approved, & shipped, why did they correct the situation as soon as they found out that was the troops #1 cause of death? It sure didn't take 1yr let alone 5yrs. That's the reason you people on the right made a big deal about Clinton getting head. You couldn't find a flaw in his ideological strategic plan. You know like I know, Bush should've never been president & was completely incompetent his entire 8yrs in office, & the country has yet to recover from his failures!
Like I said, you should not engage in any discussion on a topic you are completely ignorant of.

You would have to know the working definition for the word "threat" when it is used in DoD procurement programs, you fucking moron.

I'll give the first grade class an example. Try to follow this. Let me know if this is too complicated for you:

If there exists a technology that can penetrate static armor less than a quarter inch thick, and it is possible for this technology to be possed by a potential or active enemy of the United States, then this constitutes a threat.

And, now, for the second grade class:
The person responsible for informing the authority that approves the Five Year Defense Plan (that being Congress and the President) of this "threat" is the Secretary of Defense.

Did I go too fast for you?

The times they are a changin'.....Wonder what these wunder boys are sayin' now about Federal relief? If I was handing out checks, I'd say "before you get your hands on this, say it: say 'government has legitimate purposes that need to be financed.' Then say,'the whole analogy between a household budget and a government budget is bogus. Governments can print money, but households can't.' And then admit it:'when we call for balanced budgets, really we're calling for economic pain for low income people and benefits for rich bankers.' Go on, say it, or this money goes to fund Planned Parenthood and climate change research."

Only if one assumes that global temperature changes are caused by human activity instead of the level of solar activity.

The larger point is that the recent temperature changes are negligible compared to changes over the history of the earth.

Is that glacier still covering Homer's house, or did power plants melt it?
