"If you like your insurance, you can keep it"

While SOME things are good about the ACA, it is still Not EXACTLY a pillar of total REAL truth FOR the people (rather than divide and DRAIN against them) either, if ya know what I mean.

FAR from it, in MUCH need of MUCH work still, to be beneficial for ALLLL the struggling, uninsured WORKING CLASS people (NOT just fweeriders or the employer subsidized (Galt)...)

So don't sit too high up on that butter back horse Mr, cuz ya might find yourself fell off and underneath it...'cuz it all still LACKS a lot!

The report is a little misleading. It also reports:
Cool temperature trends continue in Earth’s lower stratosphere: The average lower stratospheric temperature, about six to ten miles above the Earth’s surface, for 2012 was record to near-record cold, depending on the dataset.
But it does go on to say: Increasing greenhouse gases and decline of stratospheric ozone tend to cool the stratosphere while warming the planet near-surface layers.
The problem with this is an IPCC report:
Another analysis of a 21-station data set from Antarctica by Comiso (1999) found a warming trend equivalent to 1.25°C per century for a 45-year record beginning in the 1950s BUT A SLIGHT COOLING TREND from 1979 to 1998...There was a COOLING PERIOD in the late 1700s and 1800s and A WARMING over the 19th century with greater variability and change in winter than in summer.
http://www.ipcc.ch/ipccreports/tar/wg2/index....
Apparently, warming and cooling trends are just part of natural climate change.
The other problem with global warming using CO2 emissions as the reason is the Ice Age.
No Carol, the study is not misleading. Despite some periods of cooling the fact remains that we have lived through the warmest 30-year period in the last 1,400 years. Since 1850 each decade has been progressively warmer than the one preceding.
Between 1901 and 2010, the global mean sea level rose by about 7.4 inches. Levels are expected to rise at a faster pace than they have over the past 40 years and could rise anywhere between 10 inches and 32 inches.
These are facts Carol.
Warming and cooling trends have normally occurred over long periods of time. The changes we're seeing are occurring at too fast a rate to be caused by any natural phenomena.
What Ice Age are you talking about Carol? There's been several. I would expect a hot shot teacher like you to know this. And what relevance do they have anyway? Ice ages were caused by different factors including continental shift and volcanic mega eruptions. So this has what to do about anything?

franksmithsaysnb.blogspot.com/.../ban-guns-on... ;
1 day ago - As usual, the liberal drive by media is failing to tell the public the whole ... taking office in 1993 was to disarm U.S. soldiers on military bases.
In March 1993, President Bill Clinton ordered a ban of all guns on military bases not because of any problem that needed to be addressed, but apparently because he is simply a typical gun hating liberal Democrat. "Among President Clinton’s first acts upon taking office in 1993 was to disarm U.S. soldiers on military bases. In March 1993, the Army imposed regulations forbidding military personnel from carrying their personal firearms and making it almost impossible for commanders to issue firearms to soldiers in the U.S. for personal protection.(Washington Times 11/11/09).
Republicans cherish our volunteers, they trust our brave soldiers, libs despise them, see them as a necessary evil.
It's well known Hillary despised the military personnel stationed or visiting the WH.
The right whiner solution to gun violence is more guns.

Military leaders say to keep the ban in place.

If only some of their loved ones would have had their heads chopped off or blown to smithereens by some nut job suicide bomber shouting "Allah Akbar"!
I'd love to see Oblamer, Reid, Pelosi, Schumer, etc. standing beside the coffins of their children murdered by islamofascists.
Love how you right whiners condone torture.

In the past when we want to paint other country's leaders as being dictators & evil, we talk about how they torture people.

Now right whiners think it is justified even though experts say it gets you very little useful information.

Did you say Obama "was able to successfully withdraw from Iraq"?
There is a black flag flying over Baghdad. The enemy eventually won and all it took was for Obama to fold his cards prematurely without putting up so much as an argument to ensure residual troops remained so that all the blood and treasure wouldn't be lost.
We could have "successfully withdrawn" and let the enemy win after they claimed Iraq the frontlines a long time ago right after we "successfully" toppled Saddam's regime. The point of any war is to NOT let the enemy win and especially, after winning, to surrender.
Maybe Obama should "successfully withdraw" from Afghanistan and Pakistan too.
There is no "black flag" flying over Bagdad liar. The only reason Al Qaeda was able to gain a foothold in Iraq is because of George W's invasion of that country. You have to be one of the last dunces in the world to think that we accomplished anything with this feckless adventure other than losing over 4000 American lives and causing thousands more to return home physically and emotionally maimed. Bush also managed to destabilize the region giving a free hand to Islamic radicals and giving Iran increased influence.

There have been global cooling and warming trends as long as temperatures have been recorded.
The other problem with global warming and CO2 emissions is, of course, the Ice Age.
When alarmists can explain the Ice Age, then we'll talk. Did CO2 emissions melt all that ice?
Once again Carol there was more than one Ice Age and since they happened long before humans started using fossil fuels how are they even relevant?

Rough week so far for Rupublican congressman Vance McCallister of Louisiana. At least is was a " female" staffer and no diapers or cocaine involved.

Some may recall that McCallister's chief sponsor was Willie Robertson.

Cops need to stay out of the corridors and classrooms of our schools. An armed camp isn't compatible with learning in young people . You can't maintain order or create respect on fear for very long if at all.

As soon as "scientists" explain how all the ice melted after the Ice Age, we'll talk about gibberish.
But maybe you can explain why there have been cooling and warming trends for centuries before global CO2 emissions.
Might it have something to do with the sun and solar flares? Or just natural climate phenomenon that can't be controlled or taxed? Just two suggestions.
No Carol the consensus of the majority of climatologists is that it's the unprecedented rise in CO2 emissions coming from fossil fuels. Solar flares have nothing to do with it.
