Barack Obama, our next President

Global temperatures have been going down Carol? Where did you get that crap?
U.K. Met Office Hadley Centre

http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/media/pdf/q/s/Pap...

Although the rate of surface warming appears to have slowed considerably over the most recent decade, such slowing for a decade or so has been seen in the past in observations and is simulated in climate models, where they are temporary events.

Global mean surface temperatures rose rapidly from the 1970s but have been relatively flat over the most recent 15 years to 2013. This has prompted speculation that human induced global warming is no longer happening, or at least will be much smaller than predicted. Others maintain that this is a temporary pause and that temperatures will again rise at rates seen previously.

<quoted text>in 2011 it 1.028 trillion we spent on welfare, it hasn't gone down.
Our deficit is about 1.3 trillion. Cutting welfare will reduce the deficit to about 300 billion, just about double the deficit the Republicans handed to the Democrats when the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government in January, 2007.
Plus, it will make those mooching on everyone else actually join the economy. It's a win-win deal. More workers producing equals a bigger economy, and no welfare for the government to pay equals a chance for our government to not collapse.

Cutting welfare is a win-win deal. How can anyone refuse it? It will life anyone willing to work out of what is ludicrously called "poverty" here.

Bookkeeper At Georgia Elementary School Talked Down Shooter

here's the kicker...the shooter was white.
the bookkeeper was black.
won't hear about that deal on FOX.
'Black person keeps crazy white person from shooting up a school!'
nope. never going to make onto FOX.
Oh really (pretty good coverage below)? Ethnicities are almost ALWAYS left out of stories (and that practice should end).

Bravo to her for talking him down, but it would have been preferable had she shot & killed him....

School clerk Antoinette Tuff in an interview on ABC's "World News with Diane Sawyer" said she worked to convince the gunman to put down his weapons and ammunition.

"He told me he was sorry for what he was doing. He was willing to die," Tuff told ABC.

She told him her life story, about how her marriage fell apart after 33 years and the "roller coaster" of opening her own business.

"I told him,`OK, we all have situations in our lives," she said. "It was going to be OK. If I could recover, he could, too."

Then Tuff said she asked the suspect to put his weapons down, empty his pockets and backpack on the floor.

"I told the police he was giving himself up. I just talked him through it," she said.

How about we talk about the issue.
You didn't respond to the subject of the post. All you did was regurgitate some programmed indoctrinated bullshit without addressing the content of the post.
Here it is again for your convenient reference:

Want health care?
You've already got it. No hospital can refuse treatment to anyone who needs it.
Or, what you really want is the same health insurance as everyone else paying for it, right?
I'll tell you how to get health insurance like everyone in Congress has: get elected to Congress.
How to get health insurance everyone who works their whole life has: get a fucking job and show up for work every day on time and do what you're paid to do while you're at work.
Problem solved. That wasn't too difficult.
What other problem can we solve for you?

Crime-Fighting Makes For Strange Friends: Rahm Emanuel, Louis Farrakhan Working Together In Chicago
Chicago's first Jewish mayor, Rahm Emanuel, has formed a team (of sorts) with the help of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a man many view as an aggressive anti-Semite, to help cut the 40 percent surge in homicides in the city's neighborhoods.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Farrakhan has deployed men in the streets of Chicago to stop the violence - a move welcomed by Emanuel.
"People of faith have a role to play and community leaders have a role to play in helping to protect our neighborhoods and our citizens," Emanuel told the paper. "You cannot get there on just one piece of an anti-crime strategy."
Men known as the Fruit of Islam, loyal to Farrkahan's organization, can be seen in neighborhoods forming a human wall of protection against sudden outbreak of gunfire, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
"Community leaders have a role to play. Pastors have a role to play. Principals have a role to play. And most importantly, parents have roles to play. They have decided, the Nation of Islam, to help protect the community. And that's an important ingredient, like all the other aspects of protecting a neighborhood."

Failure to raise the debt ceiling does not mean defaulting on any debt unless Obama chooses to do so instead of reducing spending.

If Rahm Emanual turns over law enforcement in Chicago to the Black Muslims, he will surely get what he deserves.

Fox News Confirms the Firing of a Top Executive Who Was Once Close to Ailes

Fox News confirmed reports on Tuesday that Roger Ailes, the powerful chief executive of the Fox News Channel, had fired one of his longest-serving and closest lieutenants, Brian Lewis, on July 25 for what it called “issues relating to financial irregularities, as well as for multiple, material and significant breaches of his employment contract.”

Here's another one, PDupont.

http://www.thegwpf.org/leaked-ipcc-report-str...

The absence of any significant change in the global annual average temperature over the past 16 years has become one of the most discussed topics in climate science," wrote David Whitehouse of the Global Warming Policy Foundation in June. "It has certainly focused the debate about the relative importance of greenhouse gas forcing of the climate versus natural variability."

A draft of the upcoming AR5 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which is set for final release in Oct. 2014 and used by governments around the world, offers a variety of explanations for the mystery.

Then there's this.

http://www.thegwpf.org/arctic-ice-growth-1971...

A 1971 National Geographic map shows that there is a lot more Arctic sea ice now than there was 42 years ago.

----

I suppose climate has been unpredictable since the beginning of time and no matter which data you choose to believe - and even when temperatures were clearly on the rise the first part of this decade - we were only talking about an increase of 0.2 to 0.8 degrees Celsius.

It just looks more serious on the graphs but you have to look at the actual increase in temperature.

Anyway, take it or leave it.
