Incredible......
and yet just a two degree celsius rise will have major effects on our planet. and we are at .74 (one could round that up to one third, right, forks? it's fun to point out how you don't even understand the links you yourself provide!!!)

and this doesn't even take into effect the warming of the oceans, which absorbs most of the increase...

living next to lake superior most of my life, i can tell what the effect on weather and tempreature huge bodies of water make...these concepts are obviously beyond your puny mind's grasp.

go ahead, post more links you clearly do not understand...all you are doing is proving what an ignorant fool you are...

Honestly, I think they have. Their first inclination though, as we see over and over, is to lower the standards and amend the curriculum for everyone else. With obvious results.
It's a common theme, accommodate the underachievers and punish the best and brightest.
instead of maintaining high standards for those who can compete and creating vocational schools for those who lack academic ability....

The Barack H. Obama Foundation was fast-tracked to IRS tax-exempt status at the same time that the IRS was abusing numerous Tea Party and conservative groups. While those groups’ tax-exempt applications were taking two years and mountains of paperwork and invasive queries about their memberships and activities, the Barack H. Obama Foundation won its status in just 30 days. That status was back-dated 38 months, which is against the law.- See more at: http://www.teaparty.org/obamas-brother-wears-...
You people really look desperate when you dig up old news. This non-issue was first reported by the Daily Caller in May, 2013. NOTE: "Daily Caller"!

Now, let's make it clear that President Barack Obama is not in anyway affiliated with The Barack H. Obama Foundation.

The President of the Foundation is Abongo Malik Obama. The Executive Director is Ray Baysden of Arlington, VA and the Director is Gwendolyn Anderson of Rockville, Maryland and
no one knows how long the Foundation had been working with the IRS to correct their violation involving their tax exempt status. It could have been a year or more.

FACTS:

On their 2008 form 990, the Foundation stated, "The Foundation sponsored a youth tournament, dug water wells, and repaired/renovated local mosque." They listed an outstanding loan of $2,887 due to Malik Obama.

On their 2009 form 990 they stated "The Foundation sponsored a youth tournament, built houses for widows and orphans, assisted in construction of Police Post, education and repair/renovation of local mosque."

On their amended forms to their 2010 form 990, The Foundation states that they received $17,243 in 2008; $1,430 in 2009 and $24,250 in 2010; they then list an outstanding balance of $45,729 due to Malik Obama. Their 2010 from 990 was the last one they filed.

https://bulk.resource.org/irs.gov/eo/2011_07_...

https://bulk.resource.org/irs.gov/eo/2011_09_...

Now, if you want to start a "conspiracy theory", how about who is Ray Baysden? There is A Ray Baysden in Arlington, VA whose profile says that he "served as Chief of the Joint Mission Analysis Center (JMAC) for the United Nations’ Stabilization Mission in Haiti from 2008 to 2010. In this role, he was tasked with providing risk mitigation strategies and gathering intelligence for the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General (SRSG) and the Senior Mission Leadership Team, which included the Military Forces Commander and the United Nations Police Commissioner." Of course, whether this is "the" same Ray Baysden is anyone's guess.

Gwendolyn Anderson of Rockville, Maryland is an unknown. There is a Gwendolyn Anderson from Washington, DC whose profile says that she worked for an "International Association" and "Black Actuaries" but who knows.....

Just had another conversation with the only person I know that signed up for Obamacare. He got the Gold plan, but now has an out-of-pocket of up to $6,000 because he found out none of his doctors are in-network (was lied to). He was paying under $300 a month prior to o-BOZO-care and now is paying $470. He has spent untold hours on the phone trying to get answers. His bill was wrong.

He is now going to see what he can get outside of Obamacare and will no longer be voting for Democrats.

One of the security guards came up to us, so this person asked if the Security Guard had o-BOZO-care. She said her insurance from her employer was dropped because of Obamcare and she now does not have insurance. She is refusing to sign-up because it is too expensive and will pay the fine (she has a young kid too).

These are the only two people I know impacted by Obamacare.

Democrats are idiots!

Fifty-six percent of uninsured Americans who plan to get health insurance say they will do so through a government health insurance exchange. That figure has steadily increased since Gallup began tracking uninsured Americans' intentions in October.
But what struck me most was this:
38% say they are more likely to pay the fine the government will assess most Americans who lack health insurance.
That 38 percent generally approximates the conservative fringe of America, you know, the ones who clung to George W. Bush to the bitter end, the ones who believe Obama was born in Kenya, the ones sickened by America's creeping communism. There are probably a handful in that 38 percent who are choosing to pay the fine for non-ideological reasons. But there are many more who are doing so to spite the president.
Because, you see, placing yourself at risk of financial ruin, severe disability, or even death is totally worth it in pursuit of undermining the communist plot hatched at the Heritage Foundation. It's like eating crappy, unhealthy fast food in order to spite liberals. Or refusing to exercise because Michelle Obama.
All these things increase the odds of premature incapacitation or death, and ... that's supposed to make liberals sad? Maybe it does, since we don't think "empathy" is a dirty word. But holding your breath until you die is an odd way to spite your political enemies.
