Variations on this have already been posted lately and I only did a very quick look to try and not post an exact duplicate. So my apologies to the original poster if this is a repeat, but it's just too good to not share again.

"Global warming? No, actually we're cooling, claim scientists"

There has been a 60 per cent increase in the amount of ocean covered with ice compared to this time last year, they equivalent of almost a million square miles.
In a rebound from 2012's record low an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia's northern shores, days before the annual re-freeze is even set to begin.
The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year, forcing some ships to change their routes.
A leaked report to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) seen by the Mail on Sunday, has led some scientists to claim that the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century.
If correct, it would contradict computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming. The news comes several years after the BBC predicted that the arctic would be ice-free by 2013.

Note: "Southern", as used in this section, refers to members of Congress from the eleven states that made up the Confederate States of America in the American Civil War. "Northern" refers to members from the other 39 states, regardless of the geographic location of those states.

The original House version:

Southern Democrats: 787 (793%)
Southern Republicans: 010 (0100%)
Northern Democrats: 1459 (946%)
Northern Republicans: 13824 (8515%)

The Senate version:

Southern Democrats: 120 (595%)(only Ralph Yarborough of Texas voted in favor)
Southern Republicans: 01 (0100%)(John Tower of Texas)
Northern Democrats: 451 (982%)(only Robert Byrd of West Virginia voted against)
Northern Republicans: 275 (8416%)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_strateg...
The strategy was first adopted under future Republican President Richard Nixon and Republican Senator Barry Goldwater[6][7] in the late 1960s.[8] The strategy was successful in winning 5 formerly Confederate states in both the 1964 and 1968 presidential elections. It contributed to the electoral realignment of some Southern states to the Republican Party, but at the expense of losing more than 90 percent of black voters to the Democratic Party. As the twentieth century came to a close, the Republican Party began trying to appeal again to black voters, though with little success.[8]

In 2005, Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman acknowledged the Southern strategy and formally apologized to the NAACP for ignoring the black vote in the previous century.[9]

I just can't resist.
This is hilarious,- "one man's opinion to smear The Left". That "one man" just happens to have Leftist credentials you could only dream of.
"A member of the Campaign for Peace and Democracy and Democratic Socialists of America,..... He played a prominent role in the 1980 SAG strike.[15] He has also been active in a variety of other causes, such as the movement to free Mumia Abu-Jamal and the movement to establish single-payer health care in California, California One Care,... He endorsed Barack Obama during the United States presidential election, 2008."
Oh, now you're back to saying that Ed Asner is The Spokesman for The Hollywood Left, Liberals, and The all encompassing Left.

So which is it,
Does Ed Asner speak for all of The Left,
or
Does Ed Asner only speak for some of The Left.

You really need to make up your mind.

Nice try, but no broad brush was used,
here is the post I was responding to from IO...

yep... Why would anyone think the hatred of Obama by Right Wingers would have anything to do race ?
And here is my response...
http://www.topix.com/forum/city/blairsville-g...
That's the question that has stumped many since all the evidence shows that it's based on substantive issues.
..........
In neither case does it accuse ALL Right Wingers, but it does question the motivation of those who have exhibited an irrational hatred of Obama.
Now the question becomes, are you suggesting that these "racist comments from some obscure politicians" were made in a vacuum?
"Irrational" HATRED of Obama????? Too funny. Just too too funny. I think a better accusation would be an "irrational" SUPPORT of Obama.

Below is your original post to which I responded:

"I just love it when you tell this story, but like the previous 4 or 5 times you always stop short of discussing the bloc of Southern Democrats that were at the heart of representing segregationist interests. And like all the times before, you fail to mention that these southern Democrats were to be absorbed into the Republican Party with Nixon's Southern Strategy, and have remained in the Republican Party ever since."

This is the heart of your post:
"the bloc of Southern Democrats that were at the heart of representing segregationist interests."

That bloc made up the Dixiecrats who formed the States Rights Democratic Party in 1948 and whose platform included in its platform the following:

"We stand for the segregation of the races and the racial integrity of each race; the constitutional right to choose one's associates; to accept private employment without governmental interference, and to earn one's living in any lawful way. We oppose the elimination of segregation, the repeal of miscegenation statutes, the control of private employment by Federal bureaucrats called for by the misnamed civil rights program. We favor home-rule, local self-government and a minimum interference with individual rights."

Of the 18 Dixiecrats serving on the national level, 2 moved to the Republican party - the rest stayed in the Democratic party.

I find it interesting that you used numbers for the "original version" of a bill you didn't identify. I presume you mean the 1964 Voting Rights Act, in which case the version you are referring to is irrelevant, the important numbers are those for the final bill, in which case Republicans voted for it in higher percentages than did Democrats. Those numbers don't change however much you may wish them to - in the House, Democrats 61%, Republicans 80%. In the Senate, Democrats 66%, Republicans 82%.

So! This post by you doesn't illustrate HATE?????????? Where is all the "supposed" tolerance you left wingers have? Truth of the matter, you liberals are as FULL of hate as you claim others to be. Again, DOUBLE STANDARD.

Isn't it interesting that arguably the most common tactic of those on here from the Left is to dig into past history, be it the previous administration or events of almost 50 years ago. And whether the time frame be 5 years or 50 years, they distort the facts to try and make their case.

When you take a look at what they have NOW, scrambling into the past is the best they can do.

Let me ask you something. What course of action(or inaction) could Obama have taken on Syria that would have made right wingers happy or satisfied? If you are honest, you will admit that there was none! He was 'damned if you do, and damned if you don't- even if had never made the statement about the 'red line'.

He isn't worried about the history books. Those will be written to show him in the most positive way. Worked for Stalin.
The truth is something Obama and his throng of groupies fear more than anything else.
I suggest folks write their own thoughts and observations, because the history books will be altered over time. Easy to do with digitally produced textbooks. Harder to do with written words.
Collect the important books while you still can before the progressive brown shirts start burning them.
You are correct, as truth is their greatest enemy. I am still waiting for the uninformed masses to finally catch on.
I don't know if you have noticed, but many internet web sites are being cleaned by the left. Especially sites that have information about President Obama.

Frankly I wish Obama had kept his mouth shut on the red line. I was actually proud of him trying to keep out of Syria. I though that this was something that he has done right. Then he blew that one too. That is my honest opinion and you know it to be true as you have read my many posts about Syria.
Synergy will have to give her opinion on this subject as I am sure she has a good one. I am curious to what she will tell you. We don't always think alike and are not clones as you try to make us out to be.
