A blogging website, skepticalscience is sort of like topix.
"Skeptical Science is a climate alarmist website created by a self-employed cartoonist, John Cook. It is moderated by zealots who ruthlessly censor any and all form of dissent from their alarmist position. This way they can pretend to win arguments, when in reality they have all been refuted. The abuse and censorship does not pertain to simply any dissenting commentator there but to highly credentialed and respected climate scientists as well; Dr. Pielke Sr. has unsuccessfully attempted to engage in discussions there only to be childishly taunted and censored while Dr. Michaels has been dishonestly quoted and smeared. The irony of the site's oxymoronic name "Skeptical Science" is that the site is not skeptical of even the most extreme alarmist positions."

This article is not written by John Cook, there are over 60 comments to the article, one of the controversies mentioned in your reference does not pertain to the this article, but does invovle the author of this article. Your reference involves a number of different situations and I don't have the time to track down every aspect of each situation to determine who was wronged and why and to what degree.

After looking at the internal links in your reference I see charges and counter-charges, some overblown hyperbole and indignation on both sides of each controversy. If all of this is enough for you to discount my reference then there is little I can do or show to change your position.

Gotta post and run, but I am seeing a parallel right now between Benghazi and the Boston bombing. After Benghazi, the White House, before we the public had any information at all, was immediately out there proclaiming it was the result of a video that virtually no one saw. Of course, now we know the White House knew from the beginning that was a lie - they "watched" the attack in real time (well, Obama didn't, he went to bed), but they still went with that cover story.
Now we have the White House and Obama in his press briefing pushing hard the idea of these "self radicalized" terrorists. How many times did Obama use that term yesterday? Why, once again, when the investigation has a long way to go, is he so intent of getting the idea out there that there is no bigger group that had anything to do with this, that the brothers "obviously" had no ties to any group? Wouldn't the prudent thing be simply to say "the investigation is ongoing" rather than try and put a conclusion out there instead.
And at the same time he is proclaiming the brothers had no outside connections, he claims he has "no knowledge" of any Benghazi survivors who want to testify but are being prevented from doing so by the State Dept. Really, Mr President, how can you not know that there have been Freedom of Information Act requests made for months, along with requests from House Committee members asking for those individuals to be allowed to testify?
You're criticizing Obama for telling the American Public what they think at this time?

You're slow. Stella Tremblay has already jumped to the end game where she blames Obama for setting the bombs. Where did she get her info? From Alex Jones, of course.

Full Transcript of Obama’s Press Conference
April 30, 2013, 12:10 PM
http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2013/04/30/full...

...And the question then is, was there something that happened that triggered radicalization and actual — an actual decision by the brother to engage in the attacks that we — the tragic attack we actually saw in Boston, and are there things — additional things that could have been done in that interim that might have prevented it?

Now, what Director Clapper’s doing is standard procedure around here, which is when an event like this happens, we want to go back and we want to review every step that was taken. We want to leave no stone unturned. We want to see, is there in fact additional protocols and procedures that could be put in place that would further improve and enhance our ability to detect a potential attack? And we won’t know that until that review is completed. We won’t know that until the investigation into the actual crime is fully completed, and that’s still ongoing.

But what I can say is, is that based on what I’ve seen so far, the FBI performed its duties; Department of Homeland Security did what it was supposed to be doing.

But this is hard stuff. And I’ve said from — for quite some time that because of the pressure that we put on al-Qaida core, because of the pressure that we put on these networks that are well- financed and more sophisticated and can engage and project transnational threats against the United States, one of the dangers that we now face are self-radicalized individuals who are already here in the United States, in some cases may not be part of any kind of network, but because of whatever warped, twisted ideas they may have, may decide to carry out an attack. And those are in some way more difficult to prevent.

And so what I’ve done for months now is to indicate to our entire counterterrorism team, what more can we do on that threat that is looming on the horizon? Are there more things that we can do, whether it’s engaging in — engaging with communities where there’s a potential for self-radicalization at this — of this sort? Is there work that can be done in terms of detection? But all of this has to be done in the context of our laws, due process. And — and so part of what Director Clapper is doing then is — is going to be to — to see if we can determine any lessons learned from — from what happened.

I think we understand each perfectly, we're not going to change each other, was never my intention to begin with.

For every link I put up, you can put up an opposing link and vice-versus.

As for Climate change, I have said from the beginning there are more and bigger factors than human to consider. And there is much disagreement among scientist whether or not human interaction with the climate will have any effect, and what that effect might entail and I can list out many scientists papers reflecting this.


Bascially what I have been saying is while man may be involved in some climate change, the IFFC is using a data model that has not been proven and possibly is wrong; also it does not include some other improved data models of data gathering. The IFFC should include the data for 2000-2011 for the work group 1 report due out this fall, if not they fail in their purpose because the data for 2000-2011 will show no increase in temperatures while co2 has increased, thereby throwing a monkey wrench into their data modeling.

Why be angry at Bush for the 9-11 attacks? Do you really believe these terrorists came to America, trained as pilots, and plotted the World Trade Center disaster in a total of just 9 months? In only 9 months? It's so obvious IO and a few others who post regularly are radical L wing communists. Talking about mindless, brainwashed beings- IO is a perfect example. Sick of his hate filled rants. He's one sicko, boring being who sings one tune, the broken record called.... let's blame Bush & republicans for all that's wrong with America.

'Austerity for thee, obscene tax breaks for me!'
THU MAY 02, 2013 AT 10:10 AM PDT
by Joan McCarter
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/05/02/1206...

Let's be absolutely clear about the agenda of the chief austerity pushers and their mouthpieces Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles: greed. They want the 99 percent, and particularly the elderly and the poor, to subsidize their own very healthy entitlement system. The Institute for Policy Studies and Campaign for America's Future have released a new report that details just how huge the taxpayer-funded subsidy for the CEOs active in the Bowles/Simpson-fronted Fix the Debt campaign is, and why they're fighting so hard to keep it, at our expense.

U.S. corporations are able to deduct huge executive payouts from their income taxes using a "performance pay" tax loophole. Since 1993, the tax deduction for executive pay has been set at $1 million. But the there's the loophole, which excludes "performance-based pay" from that cap. And it's a massive loophole. That's particularly true for the 90 publicly held corporations that are members of Fix the Debt, which the report finds, paid out $6.3 billion in tax-deductible executive compensation in just three years, 2009-2011. The tab to taxpayers for that executive subsidy is between $953 million and $1.6 billion. Which is not going to fix the debt. In fact, it's adding to it. A few examples:

Health insurance giant UnitedHealth Group enjoyed the biggest taxpayer subsidy for its CEO pay largesse. The nation’s largest HMO paid CEO Stephen Hemsley $199 million in total compensation between 2009 and 2011. Of this, at least $194 million went for fully deductible “performance pay.” That works out to a $68 million taxpayer subsidy to UnitedHealth Group – just for one individual CEO’s pay. A just-released proxy reveals that Hemsley pocketed another $28 million in “performance pay” in 2012, which computes into a tax break for UnitedHealth of nearly $10 million.

Discovery Communications stood next in line for a government handout. Between 2009 and 2011, CEO David Zaslav pocketed $114 million,$105 million of this in exercised stock options and other fully deductible “performance pay.” That translates into a $37 million taxpayer subsidy for Discovery and its lavish executive pay policies. In 2012, Zaslav hauled in enough additional “performance pay” to generate a tax break worth $9 million.

Even big losers win with the “performance pay” loophole. Gambling titan Caesars Entertainment has hemorrhaged money in recent years, driving CEO Gary Loveman’s stock options underwater. Loveman managed, even so, to take home $9.6 million in cash bonuses between 2009-2011, a windfall that’s generating taxpayer subsidies the firm can cash in to lower its taxes over years to come.

These CEOs are raking in obscene levels of pay, and lobbying very hard to protect this loophole, while at the same time insisting that the debt has to be fixed by slashing Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. They aren't content with screwing the American taxpayer with their massive pay subsidies, they want to strip even more out of our retirement and health security—which every working person in America has paid into—to protect their continued largesse.

It goes deeper than that. Besides lining their own nest with loopholes and corporate handouts, corporations have an entirely 2nd tier of benefits tied up in austerity measurements and various spending cuts.

As government spending cuts are enacted, various departments have a LOT less manpower to work with for enforcing various regulations and investigating financial fraud. They LOVE the sequester as it means the SEC, EPA, and various other agencies have a lot less to work with to enforce regulations. It's a big deal to giant polluters, Wall Street, and companies like Monsanto.
