<quoted text>no dear you just proved mine, just as i stated, the beginning of the fall; only regional influence, bickering factional infighting, reduced funding.
did your article prove my point for me also about the infighting in syria? it was in all the papers...
Jebus, Woodtick! They're expanding into Iraq already.

I believe the infighting in Syria is between the Al Qaeda splinter groups and the moderate rebels. The Al Qaeda groups are still around and not on the run.

The funding wasn't reduced, it goes through more complex channels and banks with no access by the US now. It can't be tracked.

No, I said the funny part is, you think it's funny, while everyone else looks perplexed.

Forensic Details in U.N. Report Point to Assadís Use of Gas
A United Nations report released on Monday confirmed that a deadly chemical arms attack caused a mass killing in Syria last month and for the first time provided extensive forensic details of the weapons used, which strongly implicated the Syrian government.
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/17/world/europ...
the report assigns no blame for use of chemical weapons.....

any such conclusions are purely in the minds of Obamabots at the New York Times, the Obama propaganda rag.....

Desperate Rush Limbaugh Spreads a Rumor That Hillary Clinton is Too Sick to Run In 2016
Rush Limbaugh got the story from The Daily Caller, who got the story from a 2013 National Enquirer article. The Globe also ran a story about Clinton having cancer, but I would like to think that the Daily Callerís journalistic standards would compel them to go with the much more highbrow Enquirer.

<quoted text>what does that have with us being able to measure the amount we humans put in, and have put in, and the known effects from that?
are you suggesting that wantonly putting unlimited amounts of CO2 into our atmosphere, above and beyond our planet's natural amounts is a good thing? especially when the other things that come with them are also proven to be bad for us? seriously?
I'm all for reducing as much as we can without forming an oppressive government, but volcanos dump far more CO2 into the air than humans could possibly produce in hundreds of years. Is there any research into ocean floor volcanos warming the oceans? I believe there is one east of the big island, Hawaii that already has an active volcano.

Maybe we can appease the fire god, Pele, by throwing liberals into Kilauea.:-)

Mississippi rated the most "miserable" state: Highest rate of obesity (35.3% of total population); highest rate of child poverty (31.9%); highest rate of infant mortality (1.01%); lowest median household income ($35,078); highest teen birth rate (71.9 per 1,000 women aged 15 to 19) and highest overall rate of STDs.

the fact that Mississippi is 37.4% black, almost three times the national average, has a lot of influence on those numbers.....

What is so polluting about nuclear energy? It matters more about where you put these reactors, like it is a bad idea to put one on the coast in an earthquake prone country.
nuclear energy is the only feasible alternative to fossil fuels as the base power supply for America....

wind and solar will never be more than supplemental power sources....and always require a backup source.....

really? they both spread nuclear waste across this planet. we don't know what to do with either. and they have this tendency to irradiate whole regions and make them uninhabitable for generations while killing thousands .....

what fun! do you have any idea how many nuke power plants just like fukishima we have here in the US? plants that will self destruct if they lose power?

we have two of them right here in MN, at the top of Mississippi river! one good tornado outbreak and a thrown rod in the backup generator and the entire river will be irradiated...

those good nuke plants.....
