Only the dumbest of the dumb don't understand that working class income bolsters the US economy.

and your point is??? Besides that you and the author don't understand science and global warming.
NEWSFLASH Global warming does not mean the Earth's climate is going to be a balmy 72F year round.
what it does mean that increasing the average temperature on the atmosphere a couple of degrees results in more severe weather and changes in climate. Less ice at the Artic allows the circular polar jet stream to dip down into central North America, this cold air mass then meets with warm moist air coming up from the Gulf of Mexico resulting in colder winters, more frequent/stronger tornadoes, hurricanes and snow.
aalways amazes me that people who don't study up or read anything about global warming are the quickest to deny it.
except that the average temperature of the atmosphere is not increasing at all, let alone "a couple of degrees"...

'No tendency is quite so strong in human nature as the desire to lay down rules of conduct for other people.'

Quoted in Robert J. Schoenberg (1992), Mr. Capone, apparently referring to the temperance movement

I only meant I'm not planning on being here after the holidays, and, as people with family, friends, a life, or responsibilities know, the holidays are totally happening now.(BTW, some roses don't have thorns, and there are lots of thorns without any roses...were you hoping to appear profound?

Happy holidays Leo, you'll be missed, hope the baby is doing well. How's lightning? I'm babysitting my two grand dogs this weekend! Had to sequester the cat!

That's not so__only morons believe that nonsense. One more time, John DeLorean wrote a book (On a Clear Day You Can See GM) which predicted the downfall/demise of GM and listed reasons why the company would eventually fail. DeLorean nailed it__senior management__pizz poor design/engineering/quality control and a scandalous dealer network brought the company to it's knees.

You're totally lost on the subject Galt. And too lazy to learn. Just another fkn loser banging away on topix.
