You have a long flash to blast time, don't you. Who gives a crap about republicans. They would love to flood the economy with cheap labor, driving down wages.

I agree with your opinion on the war on drugs. What! Are you becoming a limited federal government type? Whenever they pass a law, you lose another piece of freedom, LOL, I think you may be tea party material.

No, you never mentioned escorting Ross Perot around RVN.

I'm glad to see the Tea Party is in favor of giving America back to the natives who own it.
After all, if Israel can claim land after not living on it for 2000 years, I guess the American Indians have an ironclad claim to most of the USA.
We did steal it from them, of that there is no doubt.
I think the American Indians should take their case to the UN, start an uprising.
I'll bet Putin would be more than willing to arm them..........
Another thing you Teabaggers would love, with your deep admiration for the KGB Thug.
I'm in favor of Indians owning their own property and free from government. It's the government that keeps them down.

I thought there was an uprising of sorts. Wounded Knee, I believe.

Home Study: Climate Models Overestimated Global Warming For The Last 55 Years

New PostsJul 25, 2014 4 1400

Since scientists have a financial incentive to create studies to support the party line of global warming, the cooling and growth in Antarctic ice fields is becoming so pronounced that global warming arguments are falling apart. Once again, reality has a way of biting Liberal/Progressive/Collectivi sts and their scientists in the ass.

From The Daily Caller:

Climate models relied upon by scientists and governments may be greatly overstating the warming that has occurred since the late 1950s, argues a paper analyzing the discrepancies between modeled and observed temperatures.

The paper, which was published in the journal Environmetrics, found that observed temperatures differed greatly from modeled temperatures in the tropical lower troposphere and mid-troposphere.

“Over the 55-years from 1958 to 2012, climate models not only significantly over-predict observed warming in the tropical troposphere, but they represent it in a fundamentally different way than is observed,” says Ross McKitrick, economist with the University of Guelph in Canada and co-author of the study.

According to McKitrick, all climate models predict that rising carbon dioxide levels will cause rapid warming in the troposphere over the tropics. But that’s not what has happened, as neither satellites nor weather balloons have detected much warming in the tropical troposphere — meaning something is likely wrong with the models.

It’s not only that the models overestimate the amount of warming in the tropical troposphere, it’s that the models misrepresent the warming by making it look like a “smooth upward trend.” But McKitrick says that observations show all the warming occurred in a “single step-change in the late 1970s coinciding with a known event (the Pacific Climate Shift), and identify no significant trend before or after.”

“In my opinion the simplest and most likely interpretation of these results is that climate models, on average, fail to replicate whatever process yielded the step-change in the late 1970s and they significantly overstate the overall atmospheric response to rising CO2 levels,” McKitrick said.

What this means is that tropical tropospheric temperatures were relatively flat before the late 1970s. Then, around 1977, temperatures jumped up slightly in a phenomenon called the Pacific Climate Shift. But after the climate shift, temperatures flattened out once again, showing little to no warming trend.

The absence of warming is another area of climate science that sparks debate. In fact, McKitrick’s study is not the first to point out the inconsistencies between modeled and observed temperatures. In 2006, the U.S. Climate Change Science Program report found there was a “potentially serious inconsistency” in the modeling of tropospheric warming.

Other papers came to a similar conclusion, but were rejected by some in the climate science community. A 2011 paper by American and British government scientists said that there “is no reasonable evidence of a fundamental disagreement between tropospheric temperature trends from models and observations when uncertainties in both are treated comprehensively.”

It’s Rick Scott’s anniversary this weekend.

Seventeen years ago today, Rick Scott resigned in disgrace as chairman and CEO of Columbia/HCA, and within a week, this happened:


3 Executives of Hospital Chain Charged With Medicare Fraud

As part of a widening criminal investigation of the Columbia/HCA Healthcare Corporation, a Federal grand jury has indicted three executives who have been top officers in the company's giant Florida market on charges of defrauding the Government, according to papers unsealed yesterday.

The three executives were charged with conspiring for more than a decade to overstate expenses at one hospital, illegally increasing its compensation from Federal programs like Medicare. As a result, the hospital -- one of almost 350 in the Columbia network -- defrauded Medicare and other Federal programs of more than $1.7 million, the indictment says.

The indictment touches at the heart of one of the most important areas of Columbia's business, by charging that some of the officers responsible for obtaining Federal reimbursement in Florida did so in part by fraud. And its unsealing comes less than a week after the unfolding criminal investigation led to the resignation of the company's two top officers, including Richard L. Scott, its former chairman and chief executive.

THE ISRAELI MILITARY say three rockets have been fired at Israel from Gaza after Hamas rejects Israel's proposal to extend an original 12-hour humanitarian truce by four hours...

More than other groups, Muslims don't want peace...

More than other groups liberals defend these Muslims and are radicals as well. Both groups live off of hate and have no tolerance.

RealIdiot posted crap about "Lt" General Jay Garner a couple days ago.

He ignored this:

"Top Marine Corps general slams Obama’s handling of Iraq"

"Four-star Gen. James Amos, commandant of the Marine Corps, used a speaking engagement at the Brookings Institute on Tuesday to deliver a stinging rebuke of the Obama administration’s handling of Iraq.

“I have a hard time believing that had we been there, and worked with the government, and worked with parliament, and worked with the minister of defense, the minister of interior, I don’t think we’d be in the same shape we’re in today,”

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/jul/...

RealIdiot seems to think a Lt General's comments are valid while four-star is irrelevant.

Liberalism is a mental disorder. RealIdiot has a severe case.
