Global Warming Advocates - Children in Sheep's Clothing

When Charles Krauthammer and others ask such questions, one would expect global warming advocates who feel secure in their supporting scientific evidence to present the evidence and let the science do the talking.

When prominent global warming advocates such as Barack Obama, John Kerry, and Jeffrey Kluger respond instead by engaging in juvenile name-calling –“flat earthers,”“unfrozen caveman”– this tells us where the science really stands.

It’s like watching a spoiled three-year-old respond to his parents’ logical admonition to not eat sugar all day by flailing himself on the floor and throwing a three-hour temper tantrum. It may make for good theatrics, but it hardly addresses the sound science behind his parents’ admonition.

Just like he didn't lie about keeping your doctors and health insurance plans (LIE OF THE YEAR) and just like he didn't lie about corruption in the IRS.
Yes, Obama DID lie about those subjects. He lies repeatedly and with great skill, you just don't want to admit it.
No, he did not lie.

All you have to do is read the ACA to see that he did not lie about keeping your insurance and despite looking under every rock, Issa's inquisition has found no evidence that he lied about corruption in the IRS.

Politifact Lie of the Year:'If you like your health care plan, you can keep it'

Regarding the IRS, Lois Lerner invoked her 5th Amendment right. That tells anyone with a brain she did not want to implicate herself in something either corrupt or criminal.

You can deny the facts all you want. All it does is reaffirm that you're an ignorant apologist with zero credibility.

Topic Reminder Service (TRS) is a publicly-funded non-political organization founded to update Forum Users with accurate factual reminders. This particular Topic could be - indeed has been - deemed out-of-date or "dead" since November 4th, 2008. However, persuant of common OPINION, it has remained one of the more-popular Topix to this day. At this point in time, over four years after the topic's origin and considering none of the facts will change for another four years (making for an estimated eight-year lifecycle), TRS is presenting the following reminders of FACT-

Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office. Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was president of the Harvard Law Review.

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii USA on August 4, 1961, he served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, running unsuccessfully for the United States House of Representatives in 2000.

He began his first presidential campaign in 2007, defeating Republican nominee John McCain in the general election, and was inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009. Nine months later, Obama was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

Obama was re-elected president in November 2012, defeating Republican nominee Mitt Romney. He is the first two-term Democrat POTUS since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win two presidential elections with a majority of the popular vote. During his second inaugural address on January 21, 2013, Obama called for full equality for gays: "Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law- for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well."

On February 17, 2009, Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a $787,000,000,000 economic stimulus package aimed at helping the economy recover from the deepening worldwide recession, thereby continuing an economic aid policy first instituted under the preceding (Republican) President George W. Bush.

Domestic policy items include the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act AKA Obama Care, signed into law on March 23, 2010. Barack Obama appointed two women to serve on the Supreme Court in the first two years of his Presidency. Sonia Sotomayor, nominated by Obama on May 26, 2009, was confirmed on August 6, 2009, becoming the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice. Elena Kagan, nominated by Obama on May 10, 2010, was confirmed on August 5, 2010, bringing the number of women sitting simultaneously on the Court to three, for the first time in American history.

On January 16, 2013 President Obama outlined a series of sweeping gun control proposals, urging Congress to reintroduce an expired ban on "military-style" assault weapons, impose limits on ammunition magazines to 10 rounds, introduce background checks on all gun sales, pass a ban on possession and sale of armor-piercing bullets, as well as additional measures.

Notable foreign policy items include the draw-down of troops in Afghanistan and the end of military operations in Iraq as of August 31, 2010. On March 16, 2011, he authorized the U.S. Military to engage in air strikes against Libya's governmental air defense capabilities in order to protect civilians and enforce a no-fly zone. On May 1, 2011, Obama authorized a "surgical raid" by United States Navy SEALs in Abbottabad, Pakistan, resulting in the death of international terrorist and al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and the seizure of papers, computer drives and disks from bin Laden's compound.

A statement by President Barack Obama has been given the dubious honor of “Lie of the Year” with a rating of “Pants on Fire” by the Tampa Bay Times’ Politifact.

“If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” the president said, over and over again, while trying to sell Americans on the Affordable Care Act before it was enacted. It was a comforting promise to those concerned that the government would force unwanted changes on their health insurance plans.

“But the promise was impossible to keep,” Politifact said in its announcement.

Cancellation letters sent to four million Americans notifying them that under Obamacare they could not in fact, keep their health insurance prompted the president to issue a rare apology.

The Pinocchio Test

The administration is defending this pledge with a rather slim reed — that there is nothing in the law that makes insurance companies force people out of plans they were enrolled in before the law passed. That explanation conveniently ignores the regulations written by the administration to implement the law. Moreover, it also ignores the fact that the purpose of the law was to bolster coverage and mandate a robust set of benefits, whether someone wanted to pay for it or not.
The president’s statements were sweeping and unequivocal — and made both before and after the bill became law. The White House now cites technicalities to avoid admitting that he went too far in his repeated pledge, which, after all, is one of the most famous statements of his presidency.
The president’s promise apparently came with a very large caveat:“If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan — if we deem it to be adequate.”

Windsor Ontario news
The unrelenting snow and cold temperatures experienced in Windsor this winter have city road crews prioritizing a variety of calls, and city officials say that means some requests for service aren’t being met within the usual amount of time.

“We want residents to know we’ve heard them, we care about their concerns, and that we appreciate the patience they’re showing” said Acting Executive Director of Operations Mark Winterton.

Heavy snowfalls followed by freezing temperatures have left windrows and ruts on some city side streets. That, combined with a lack of traffic and the prevalence of on-street parking, has limited the success plows and salt have been able to achieve officials say.

Along with snow challenges, maintenance crews have also been dividing their time on potholes, drainage and eeling this winter.

“We’re forced to prioritize calls: safety calls are obviously our main concern and that would involve things like sightline issues or major potholes, and then we deal with property calls were flooded basements could be involved, and finally when time permits we try to do more on the windrows and ruts. We are hoping for a sustained thawing period to help us out with the snow and ice” said Winterton.

The Public Works Department is asking residents for patience and to call 311 where safety is an issue.

The City of Windsor, Ontario has sound financial management, a very low debt burden and healthy budget performance according to the latest credit rating update by Standard & Poor’s.

S&P’s Ratings Services has affirmed its issuer credit and senior unsecured debt ratings for the City of Windsor as ‘AA,’ and says the outlook is stable.

“Consistent affirmation from S&P in recent years is a testament to the hard work and financial prudence of both City Council and our municipal administration,” says Mayor Eddie Francis.

S&P says the ratings reflect their assessment of the city’s “very low debt burden, very positive liquidity, healthy budgetary performance, and positive management. The rating also reflects the city’s economy, which, although improving, has a relatively higher industry concentration in the manufacturing sector.”

S&P says “Windsor demonstrates sound financial management, which has a positive impact on its credit profile.”

And that explains the cuts to veteran pensions while the IRS got bonuses, moron. That also explains why Obama spent more money blocking veterans from visiting the memorial than it would have cost to keep it open during that Democrat government "shutdown" that never happened.
Perhaps you would prefer that we cutting troop benefits instead.

The only thing that Congress did was curb the annual pension increases for military retirees under age 62. "Starting Dec. 1, 2015, cost-of-living adjustments for pensions of people under 62 would be modified to equal inflation minus 1 percent; then at 62, retirees would receive a "catch-up" increase that would restore their pensions to reflect levels as if the cost-of-living adjustment had been the full consumer price index in all previous years."

FACT: "Someone who enters the military at age 18 and stays 20 years starts drawing pension checks worth half their base salary immediately at age 38 -- rather than having to wait until their 60s -- and gets the payments for life."
