Enjoy burning in hell, you bad science book reading evolution propagating smart guy.
There are no scientists who disbelieve gravity or the theory of relativity. As posted by Waco there are many scientists who do not believe that global warming is caused by mankind. Your petty sarcasm is wasted.

Many is a relative term. Percentage shows you're being needlessly argumentative.

Saudi Arabia warns that,left unchecked, ISIS could be here in two months. We have no plan for that event. Dumorats are chastising the White House for the "a plan will develop" attitude. Seems the ones in the know, know the axe will fall on the political career if that happens. All it will take is one major event, then what, "boots on the ground"? We all know how the President likes to eat crow. Maybe he'll stick to his guns and carpet bomb them........here. That's a great plan it will help the jobs in the construction industry. What an economy boost. Great plan.

Just like the Vietnamese. Or the Cubans. Or the Ruskies.

If you drive to Detroit and pick a side in somebody's neighborhood squabble, at some point one of the involved will come to your house and challenge you to fisticuffs.

If you'd stayed home and not gone to Detroit, or Chicago, or Portland, or Omaha, or Oklahoma, or... you'd be able to spend some time reading the Bible.

Which sounds smarter?

Where did I blame Republicans for the exit of the furniture industry, Waco? I don't recall that but maybe you can bring up my post where I did....Give it a go, Waco.
Basically, the Republicans ARE responsible for the exit of the furniture industry. Republicans are the ones who believe that free trade is the answer to everything.

Free trade's victims turning against Bush, GOP
Posted on 8/25/2003

CHARLOTTE, N.C.-- This year's highly publicized job losses in North Carolina manufacturing, including the Pillowtex bankruptcy, could mean trouble next year for President Bush in a region that was a stronghold in 2000.

Bush won more than 56 percent of the vote in both North Carolina and South Carolina in 2000. But his strong support of free trade has turned some against him in the South, where U.S. trade policies are blamed for the loss of jobs in textiles and other manufacturing sectors.

Andy Warlick, chief executive officer of Parkdale Mills in Gaston County, said he doubts he will repeat his 2000 vote for Bush next year.

"He made a lot of promises and he hasn't delivered on any of them," Warlick said. "I've had some firsthand experience of him sending down trade and commerce officials, but they're just photo ops. It's empty rhetoric."

Fred Reese, the president of Western N.C. Industries, an employers' association, said executives are beginning to raise their voices against Bush and are planning education and voter drives.

"We're seeing a new dynamic where the executives and employees are both beginning to see a real threat to their interests. You're going to see people who traditionally voted Republican switch over," Reese predicted.

The hard feelings were on display days after Pillowtex's July 30 bankruptcy filing, when Republican U.S. Rep. Robin Hayes walked into a Kannapolis auditorium to meet with former workers.

"Thanks for sending the jobs overseas, Robin!" shouted Brenda Miller, a longtime worker at the textile giant's Salisbury plant.

In December 2001 Hayes -- who is an heir to the Cannon family textile fortune -- cast the tie-breaking vote to give Bush the authority to negotiate "fast-track" trade agreements, trade treaties that Congress must vote up or down with no amendments.

At the time, Hayes said he won promises from the Bush administration that it would more strictly enforce existing trade agreements and pressure foreign countries to open their markets to U.S. textiles.[.....]

Since Bush took office in January 2001, it is estimated North Carolina and South Carolina have lost more than 180,000 manufacturing jobs.

And even more textile jobs could be out the door once quotas on Chinese imports expire at the end of next year.

Republican U.S. Rep. Cass Ballenger voted for NAFTA and fast-track, and has seen his 10th District lose nearly 40,000 jobs, primarily in the textile and furniture industries."

"In McCrory's proposed budget released two weeks ago, the High Point Market could lose as much as half of its state funding. About $55,000 in cuts from the marketing component could go into effect as early as July 1, but the big cuts would come in the fiscal year starting July 1, 2014, when the budget would cut the Market Authority's total appropriation from today's $1.65 million to $800,000.
The negative effects of drastic cuts could ripple through many industries. According to Market Authority officials, more than 69,000 local jobs exist due to the market and home furnishings industry.[.....]
If McCrory's budget proposal is adopted, the Market Authority would face the prospect of decreasing transportation services at a time when the furniture industry is rebounding from the recession and poised for growth."

<quoted text>No buddy, your guy says no wars. So take that out of the equation. Why still borrowing money, can't the Dumorats tighten the belt, stop the spending. What are they spending it on, golf balls? The President has not even mentioned Russia. You what gets me? Your posts saying "we will not worry about ISIS" then it's "they want to borrow" is it not the same gov. What is this we and they crap? Why don't you explain Putin's plan to the minions on here.
OK, here we go again. Wars cost money. RepubliKans advocate more war. If we do more war, we have to borrow the money( like we did in Afghanistan and Iraq). We are being crushed with debt already. Obama understands the problem, republiKans do not.

Harris County is bravely moving ahead in its path to providing quality education to illegal child immigrants!
Do I hear any praise from the liberals here?
Nope.
Liberals never admit that a state they hate is doing something good!
In the interest of FAIRNESS,,(merely a concept to liberals), it must be nouef that Harris County is...... Democrat!
Houston is the largest city in the country with an openly lesbian mayor.
It's never safe to categorize, is it "folks"?
I think several liberals here would be shocked at how liberal friendly Texas can be.

Actually there is no gravity in Cherokee county , the whole place just sucks. I am also sure that many residents there did not come from monkeys, as is falsely attributed to evolution. Monkeys came from descendants of Cherokee County republicans, which would actually be an example of evolution.
