(Heaven help us...)
So, what you are saying is that all plantation owners were Democrats? Interesting. You do realize that the Democratic party is the oldest existing political party in the United States don't you and there was no GOP prior to 1854 when the anti-slavery movement began? Those plantation owners are the Republicans of today.

What does Greenland have to say...and someone needs to ask Al Gore why Greenland is different....

REPEAT...

'...Greenland ice sheet and coastal regions are not following the current global warming trend...."


"Since 1940, however, the Greenland coastal stations data have undergone predominantly a cooling trend. At the summit of the Greenland ice sheet the summer average temperature has decreased at the rate of 2.2 C per decade since the beginning of the measurements in 1987. This suggests that the Greenland ice sheet and coastal regions are not following the current global warming trend."

who is this "secretary"? why will they determine what a private company will pay for with it's policy that is clearly laid out for the buyer? you are not making any sense at all!
sorry pal, you are just ranting about crap that doesn't even make sense. let alone has on iota of fact in the real world..but then you seem to do that quite often.
glad i could point out the real facts for you...
read your insurance policy purchased from a private company. that will tell you everything they will pay for. the gov't has absolutely no say in that.(they may mandate what is covered, but your policy will tell you what is paid for and what is not, no gov't person or agency will ever change that.)
try thinking, fool, these concepts are quite easy to grasp. you have been used and abused by the people you parrot...

Greenland!

"Recent Ice-Sheet Growth in the Interior of Greenland"

'A continuous data set of Greenland Ice Sheet altimeter height from European Remote Sensing satellites (ERS-1 and ERS-2), 1992 to 2003, has been analyzed. An increase of 6.4 0.2 centimeters per year (cm/year) is found in the vast interior areas above 1500 meters, in contrast to previous reports of high-elevation balance.'

Raising capital gains taxes only reduces revenue only for a sort period. Prior to the date the tax raise takes place, those thinking of selling assets will do so before the tax rates increase. This produces fewer sales of assets after the higher rate goes into effect. This lowers the revenue generated for a short period only.
Only an uninformed person does not know this.
Income inequality got worse due to the recession which hurt poor & middle class people more. Why is it you keep blaming the effects of the Bush recession on Obama? He was not in office when the worst recession in 80 years started.
Trickle down economics does not work. Neither does deregulation as we saw with Wall Street in the near financial collapse.
BS...

any increase in taxes on stocks, whether on dividends or capital gains, reduce the value of the stocks, thereby reducing capital gains...

all investors manage their assets to maximize tax avoidance...

It is amazing in the face of actual research how you can still make claims to the contrary using the "trust me" doctrine. Do you have a LINK to a study to back up your claim?

I'd guess that Jesus wouldn't consider your inconvenience of sharing the ER to be much of a burden for a good Christian.

any time that people with real emergencies are forced to share an emergency room with others who have only minor illnesses is much more serious than a mere "inconvenience"...

It obvious you are more intelligent than 90% of the science world that unequivocally agree that global warming is in part man made.
But hey maybe a toothless hillbilly like you can convince others to the contrary.
Who is saying that climate change-I apparently more current on the movement than you are-is not possible in an ecosystem.

Our claim is the people pushing climate change are not being very scientific in what they are claiming. The hyperbole doesn't match the data.

None of you have proven to the contrary.

What's the old joke - It's so cold the democrats are keeping their hands in their own pockets. LOL

Extending unemployment benefits will allow Catherine to raise her thermostat a degree and buy an extra loaf of bread and dozen eggs!

That may cause the utility company and grocery store to hire an extra person! Wow!

What a dipsh*t you fools elected.
