You have embarrassed yourself twice today and now going for the third.

I stated- "it is 'pun' just like 'red hairing'."

Note the word 'like' in the sentence. It is also another one of those literally devices called a simile.

Maybe you should stick with your grammar checker.

Oh by the way! Earth is cooler than 5,000 years ago
As Earth's orientation changed, Northern Hemisphere summers became cooler, and we now should near the bottom of this long term cooling trend - but obviously, we are not."

The sentence say that the Earth's orientation is such that we should be near the bottom of a cooling trend.

Yet, the average global temperatures are going up.

The average temperatures for North America are up.

So what happens when the orientation starts going toward the warmer position?

BTW, your report also said this:

"This research shows that we've experienced almost the same range of temperature change since the beginning of the industrial revolution as over the previous 11,000 years of Earth history – but this change happened a lot more quickly.""

But hey, emissions have nothing to do with global warming. Nooooooooooooo.

Exactly.

The minute interest rates rise to even a modest level, investors will flee the market for a safe return.

Oh shut up you lying old fart. I suport womens rights to choose what to do with her own damn body. Period. In that case, the woman waited too long, 6 months, so she couldn't get an abortion. Nice bitchass friend who turned her in. People need to mind their own business.
Tough shit.

The woman loses that right when the fetus becomes viable outside the womb.

Why is a back-alley abortion any more legal than a hospital abortion?

1. The Sandy bill was loaded with irrelevant pork, unrelated to the rainstorm.

2. The Sandy bill paid for beach shacks in Breezy Point that should have been condemned years ago as unsafe for human habitation.

3. The Sandy bill paid for reconstruction of beach houses that were either secondary residences or rental properties, not primary residences.

4. Sandy was not a hurricane.

Perhaps you slept through that civics class when they explained to you the concept of the United States being that of limited government.
Here's a novel idea for you. A limited government can be a strong government, too.
There's nothing wrong with a central bank. A bank holds deposits. It is possible for a government to have monetary assets in excess of its expenditures. A central bank would be a convenience. The drawback would be, with a piss-poor president and criminals running amuck in his administration, you can get Machiavellian suggestions like the Executive Branch minting trillioin dollar coins and exchanging them for real money outside the constitutional authority vested solely in Congress to fund government.
Nope, nothing wrong with a central bank concept. Of course, banks being served by the central bank have the option to be served by other banks, or both the central bank and other banks.
Even with a central bank, the Department of Treasury is the comptroller of the currency.
You really need to increase your education.
