Question; Why do you persist in denigration & name calling? Is it because your maturity level is itself questionable?
Pops, you might have missed this, so I'll repost it. I'm old enough to remember those times, and the new Ice Age idea was always a minority point of view, but the popular press gave it a lot of coverage back then.

That "ice age" prediction was always a minority point of view among climate scientists. Most climate scientists thought (even in the 1970s) that the planet would get warmer because of the rise in greenhouse gasses. They were right.
"In the thirty years leading up to the 1970s, available temperature recordings suggested that there was a cooling trend. As a result some scientists suggested that the current inter-glacial period could rapidly draw to a close, which might result in the Earth plunging into a new ice age over the next few centuries. This idea could have been reinforced by the knowledge that the smog that climatologists call ‘aerosols’– emitted by human activities into the atmosphere – also caused cooling. In fact, as temperature recording has improved in coverage, it’s become apparent that the cooling trend was most pronounced in northern land areas and that global temperature trends were in fact relatively steady during the period prior to 1970.
At the same time as some scientists were suggesting we might be facing another ice age, a greater number published contradicting studies. Their papers showed that the growing amount of greenhouse gasses that humans were putting into the atmosphere would cause much greater warming – warming that would a much greater influence on global temperature than any possible natural or human-caused cooling effects.
By 1980 the predictions about ice ages had ceased, due to the overwhelming evidence contained in an increasing number of reports that warned of global warming. Unfortunately, the small number of predictions of an ice age appeared to be much more interesting than those of global warming, so it was those sensational 'Ice Age' stories in the press that so many people tend to remember."

Yes, what did the tiny fraction of fringe group minority oil lobby climate scientists say next? As far as name calling...cut to Gov. of Cali Ronald Reagan, boldly calling the youth of the counter culture nothing short of animals. Or you could just check out what the Nazi Tea Party is currently up to.

Agreed. except maybe for them wasting time (& or $). It's all about politics, their power & their money with these current putzes.
Example; Obama is supposed to be the president of 330 million ppl, all he has cared about is 51% as long as that 51% promotes his philosophical agenda. He hasn't kept but 2 of his 2008 campaign promises as I see it & 1 of those was NOT transparency & obviously the majority doesn't care or he wouldn't have been re-elected.
Eric Holder would NOT be challenging the LAWFUL Zimmerman verdict or have challenged Arizona's immigration law that basically mirrors Federal law & came about by popular vote, not just legislative vote. Obama care was NOT wanted by 50% or more in every poll. That means the remaining percentage was 'yes's' AND undecideds.
Simply to qualify my opinion, I was born when Truman was president, I remember the Nixon/Kennedy televised debates & started voting federally in the Nixon/McGovern election & in my opinion Obama is the saddest president that this country has had in my lifetime.
He is supposed to a constitutional law professor & yet he challenges the constitution every time it suits him.
He clearly plays the 'race card' ALL of the time. Example;He NEVER ran as a Afro-American or Black American or Bi-Racial American. It was ALWAYS as a Black man.
I won't even get into the Jeremiah Wright, Zimmerman/Martin issues & of course the Harvard professor episode when he gave a publicized opinion B4 knowing ANY of the FACTS.
The ONLY good thing that I can say about him is that he means well as he sees it but he has VERY dark glasses on.
Enough said. TY

Nah, I remember your post well. I was responding specifically to Canton as my question at the end of that post should have indicated.
Sometimes I wonder why anyone, myself included, even cares what mean 'ol Canton has to say when he can't be civil.

I am certain that it would have to be someones occupation to compile such massive records. I have a question tho. Unless Obama uses the word 'promise', how is it determined what statements that he makes constitute the definition of a promise? Such a process could actually sway the the total numbers either way & thus the published percentages.
Seems quite tricky to me.

YOU are the only person that I asked about crude name calling & your 'explanation' is basically that someone else did it? Pretty weak.

I wonder why so many folks here are rude and nasty. We may disagree about specific issues, but we probably have a lot in common, too. If you are really trying to bring someone around to your point of view, politeness and courtesy is the way to go.

But,(when I was much younger)I remember those who would go out to tough bars looking for a fight. That was their entertainment for the evening. I never understood it then, and I don't understand it now.

See what I mean? Probably not. Even after being queried about your unwarranted name calling, YOU respond with name calling. TOUCHE'

You do realize that I posted a direct quote from you calling some else a "tard". I think the fact that MOST things fly right over your head explains a lot about your political choices. You flat out called someone a "tard" and then you want to preach to me about how civil and mature you are? Screw you. This is the part where you claim it's all a lie, just like you have in the past. Here you go, hypocrite...

Reading your posts is kind of like watching a train wreck. Horrible, but the horrific makes us look on anyway.

You exude so much hate. I hope you're a home-bound invalid, because you'd be dangerous in public.
