Since it’s your premise, not mine, that Democrats are the bane of everything you don’t like about America, past and present, it’s incumbent on you to support it with a convincing argument. While you’ve once again passed a voluminous array of information as fact, which I don’t feel compelled to attempt to verify via online research on your behalf, you’e not demonstrated any empirical or logical argument that any of it supports your premise.
By the way, here’s a couple of personal notes that you may find both interesting to know and helpful to tuck away and have onboard to call upon when planning your presentations in the future:
1) Calling me, or anyone else,“Skippy,” as you consistently do – not that I’ve not been called far worse, so thanks for your restraint despite the anger you’re expressing — isn’t a convincing argument supportive of your premise.
2) While I’m clearly and proudly politically a social and economic progressive, you’ve no reason to conclude that I must be a Democrat. Wouldn’t it be far wiser of me to register as a Republican so I could help “primary in” the absolute craziest of the lunatic fringe tea partier candidates for whom no reasonable person would conceivably vote in a general election?
I hope you find this useful.
You’re welcome.
Research which heaped doubt on the rate of global warming was deliberately suppressed by scientists because it was “less than helpful” to their cause, it was claimed last night.

In an echo of the infamous “Climategate” scandal at the University of East Anglia, one of the world’s top academic journals rejected the work of five experts after a reviewer privately denounced it as “harmful”.

"Reminder: Obamacare passed without a single Republican vote
Back in 2009 and 2010, Democrats controlled the White House and the U.S. House and U.S. Senate. President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rammed Obamacare through without a single Republican vote.
The Washington Post said of the Obamacare fight at the time “It has inflamed the partisanship that Obama pledged to tame when he campaigned for the White House and has limited Congress’s ability to pass any other major legislation.”
In December 2009, the U.S. Senate voted 60 to 39 for Obamacare. The Washington Post reported “The Senate bill passed without a single GOP vote.”
In March 2010, the U.S. House voted 219 to 212 for Obamacare. 34 House Democrats and all of the House Republicans voted against Obamacare. The NO votes were the only bipartisan votes.
President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) on March 23, 2010.”

GOP conspired to Block any proposal Obama hinted at supporting. That pac was made as Obama was taking the oath

Well, anything that "was claimed [by someone] last night" must be true. And who's to argue with even "an echo [?] of the infamous 'Climategate' scandal [?] at the University of East Anglia [?], one of the world’s top academic journals [?] rejected the work of five experts [?] after a reviewer [?] privately [?] denounced it as 'harmful.''” Please pardon my sarcasm and questioning every other word of the reference you cited, but one rarely finds such a vague, noncommittal statement — at least I'm told that's what was said this morning about what was cited earlier about what was said last night.

More to the point, does this mean that you're now onboard with the notion that climate change is a fact, despite the attempt by the rightwing extremist fringe to deny it?

Will Fox do it all over again? If so, will they have Carl Rove back on the election night panel again or will his health and age keep him from being able to participate

Has Carl Rove's brain damage gotten worse in the last year? It's so hard to tell. Let's all pray for his recovery.

A co-ordinated, pre-planned attack caught hilarity's brain damaged State Dept. with her depends down.

When barock found out about it, he went campaigning.

To cover up their gross negligence on the anniversary of 9/11, they blamed a video no one saw.

This was fraud to get re-elected.

You liberals are either all stupid or dishonest... in your case, both.

Still waiting for that source re: obamacare passing with one republican vote.

Now waiting for source of "conspiracy" during obama speech. Would that have been before or after obama told republicans to "get to the back of the bus" and Pelosi spouted "we won, you lost, get over it", thereby signaling how welcoming the minority party opinions would be received.

Unbelievable lack intellectual honesty, not to mention historical context.

Thanks, mj. You always have a warm and kindly greeting with never a disparaging word in disagreement. Now that's class!

I may be mistaken, but I believe it may have been you who first broke the sad news to me about our Carl Rove's health. It's such a tragedy, but I suppose at his age and with his diet anything can happen. I'm comforted knowing you'll join me in praying for his condition to improve. He'd be just as concerned about us if it were our health, and I believe turnabout is fair play.

It's just like you, mj, to be so empathic to the health needs of our inner city youth, not unlike an M&M with a hard crusty shell that's all soft and sweet on the inside

Speaking of soft and sweet, have you read any updates today about my model, Karl Rove's, condition? Fox has been curiously silent about the subject of his health, just like the conspiratorial MSM.

Oh stop it, mj — you're well wishes for me and your fellow humans are becoming embarrassing.

Speaking of your well wishes, have you heard any updates yet today about poor Karl Rove? I'm sure you must be as worried as I about his health after the incident. I call on all patriots to join us in prayer for his recovery.

It's important that we keep this channel of communication open in case of any changes in Karl's condition. Thanks for your partnership in this endeavor.

Another off-topic post about warming from the Denier troll. Is this literally all you can babble about?

Hint: It's NOT political. Except to imbeciles like you.
