what do you think the average temp difference was between the ice and now?
Well, let's see now...there was the threat of another Ice Age just four a half decades ago. So the slight rise in temperatures again because of another warming cycle, of less than 1 degree over nearly a half century shouldn't alarm you. It will go through another cooling cycle again when it gets good and ready. And you won't even have a thinner wallet.

really? where did this supposed threat come from?

you really need to stop making an ass of yourself by talking about things you clearly do not understand...

and so nothing on the difference between average ice age temps and now? nothing at all? why do you even do this to yourself? do you enjoy looking like fool and pointing out your stupiditiy?

Obama really had nothing to do with the ending of US forces in iraq. that was signed by Bush.
After a period between 2009 and 2011 in which violence was on the wane, al Qaeda’s resurgence in the past year has led to a fresh sense of despair on the streets of Baghdad, where many young Iraqis think now only of leaving the country.

“It is not as bad as during the civil war, but whenever you leave your house, you can’t be sure that you will be coming back,” said Shadi Karaqzi, 23, an accountancy student smoking a shisha pipe in a central Baghdad cafe, itself the target of a devastating car bomb attack in 2007.“We are living in terror.”

“The wish of most young men now is just to live abroad so that they can have a normal life,” added his friend Ghaith Hamed, 22.

The death toll for 2013 has already topped 7,000, with the United Nations saying that 979 died in October alone, the latest month for which figures are available.

That is roughly twice the Iraqi death rate when US forces plucked Saddam from his “spider hole” in Tikrit in December 2003, an arrest hailed at the time as spelling the end of Iraq’s insurgency problems.

very little risk when your party insists voter fraud is nonexistent and such fraud is protected by the Obama Justice Ministry and Reichsminister Holder.....

<quoted text>Key word was "voted" azzhole__kinda like past tense?
You see, when folks move, going down to the supervisor of elections office and asking for your name to removed from the voting list is not a priority__matter of fact no one bothers to do it.
As a result__people can be on two or more voting lists at the same time. Fn amazing eh?
As for the dead folks who vote__LMAO that an expert like you doesn't know about the nursing home votes__or the absentee ballot votes in general. Photo ID's don't fix the absentee ballot nonsense does it?
absentee ballots are an open invitation to fraud and should only be allowed in extreme circumstances......
