Since you're obviously the slow student in the class, I'll post this again.

Now pay attention this time.

The average global temperature has gone down, not up, in recent years. The average global temperatures dropped since at least 2002. The temperature has decreased by 0.74įF (0.39įC) since January 24, 2006.

January 2008 capped a 12 month period of global temperature drops on all of the major well respected indicators. HadCRUT, RSS, UAH, and GISS global temperature sets all show sharp drops in the last year.

Did you not learn research skills in school either? Maybe that's the problem.

As far as your constant drip, drip, drip about something that doesn't even matter anymore or makes any difference whatsoever in the whole scheme of things, it only proves you dwell on the insignificant and it's all you've got.

But thanks for the compliment.

Republicans constantly whine about how terrible things have been for the past five years and cite abstract data to support it. I can't think of one friend or relative that isn't doing better now than five years ago, that's a reality.

Considering how well the government manages to oversee welfare fraud and is on top of overseeing veterans' benefits, I can't see a problem here with voter fraud.
Anyone see a problem?
Voter rolls are rarely purged of those who die or move away.

Without voter ID, anyone can vote under their names and the fraud is never detected.

Colorado GOP Probe of Alleged Voter Fraud Comes up Empty

Despite the GOPís continued efforts to scare the public into believing in-person voter fraud is common, in order to justify their voter suppression tactics, the Colorado investigation reveals once again that in-person voter fraud remains exceedingly rare. Secretary of State Gesslerís Office identified seventeen cases they thought worth investigating and all seventeen came up without a single instance of fraud detected. So far the state of Colorado has identified one case of voter fraud in the last five elections, a single solitary case from 2004 that was discovered too late to prosecute because the statute of limitations had expired.

Not Florida's lists which are once again being purged of illegals and intrastate felons at the request of our esteemed guvnah Rick "crazy eyes" Scott.

Dead people not so much, how many Florida voters do you suppose die each year doll?

They don't have the skills to discern the truth. They boast about their contempt for education; you're a "snob" if you've attended college. Every chance they get they mock our educational system because it failed them, or more correctly, they failed in it. The only attribute rightwingers consider worthy is the ability to whine.
