Civil rights leader Jesse Jackson, who has been recently criticized for remaining silent on racially-charged crimes in which whites were the victims, said the shooting of a white jogger in Oklahoma by three young men is "frowned upon."

The oddly tepid remark came in a tweet, and was followed by a lengthier statement in which Jackson pleaded for an end to violence in general.

"Praying for the family of Chris Lane. This senseless violence is frowned upon and the justice system must prevail," Jackson tweeted.

Read and learn.
Perhaps the most inconvenient fact is the lack of global warming for well over 10 years now. This is known to the warming establishment, as one can see from the 2009 "Climategate" email of climate scientist Kevin Trenberth: "The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can't." But the warming is only missing if one believes computer models where so-called feedbacks involving water vapor and clouds greatly amplify the small effect of CO2.
The lack of warming for more than a decade—indeed, the smaller-than-predicted warming over the 22 years since the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) began issuing projections—suggests that computer models have greatly exaggerated how much warming additional CO2 can cause. Faced with this embarrassment, those promoting alarm have shifted their drumbeat from warming to weather extremes, to enable anything unusual that happens in our chaotic climate to be ascribed to CO2.

not all of the unions are complaining.
so maybe you should be a bit more discerning when you talk about the unions and the ACA by saying....'Some Unions....'
but it was a nice try.
All the union members who earn decent salaries and have good medical insurance programs will eventually get screwed by ObamaKKKare.

The joke union SEIU, which rips off minimum wage employees for dues, is an exception.

Some experts say their trust in climate science has declined because of the many uncertainties. The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) had to correct a 2007 report that exaggerated the pace of melt of the Himalayan glaciers and wrongly said they could all vanish by 2035.

Climate fluctuates. Always has. The fluctuating ball of fire in the sky probably has a lot to do with it.

Q: Is the new health care law “the biggest tax increase in history”?
A: In raw dollars, perhaps. But several tax increases just since 1968 were larger as percentages of the economy, or in inflation-adjusted dollars.
Using “constant” dollars — all adjusted to equal the value of a dollar in 2009 — the ACA drops to fourth place, and the tax increase signed in 1982 by President Reagan becomes the largest since 1968.
http://www.factcheck.org/2012/07/biggest-tax-...
everyone knows that.
This is more recent and credible.

http://useconomy.about.com/od/healthcarerefor...

The main disadvantage is that the Act could actually increase health care costs over the short term. That's because many people will receive preventive care for the first time in their lives. This could lead to treatment of heretofore unknown illnesses, driving up costs.(Source: CBO, 2009 Study on Preventive Health Care, August 7, 2009)

Most of the disadvantages are accruing to those individuals and businesses that are paying higher taxes. In addition, somewhere between 3-5 million workers could lose their existing, company-sponsored health insurance if their company finds it more cost-effective to let them buy it on their own and pay the penalty.

i deal with her sort all of time, and 'lady' has nothing to do with it.

those who say to me...'I know a lot about politics because i watch FOX.' in a tone of voice that warns me not to try to tell them anything different.

but i always do so i can watch their arrogant head explode.

i am not well liked in the community. 1 liberal for every 50 conservatives and you have a recipe for rhetorical disaster. but somehow i'm always the one who comes away laughing.

WTF is "LiveScience and who funds this garbage site.

Author Stephanie Pappas is a graduate of the UC Santa Cruz (Banana Slugs) science writing program and worked as a freelancer before joining the LiveScience staff. She lacks any degree in science or engineering, hence is totally unqualified for anything but junk science.

In fact, the website should be renamed JunkScience.com .
