Notice I didn't say that the carbon was "made" by burning a tree? It isn't. Burning a tree only releases the carbon the tree held from consuming it as it grew.
By the way, our climate has been changing since the birth of our planet and will continue until it's death. We aren't going to change that no matter what we do.
Oh I know I was just baiting the lefties here.. You are correct our climate will continue to change with or without our help.. That is providing we don't have a few thousand nukes going off in time of war..

Well maybe they are useful for a yankee but in FL they are about worthless.. Lets get real they had their place in time when it was the only heating source available.. Hell I had one in my Orlando home and maybe just maybe used it 4 times a year.. The rest of the time it just took up space in the living room collecting dust..

GOP’s shameful decline on race: While Bush celebrated Voting Rights Act, DeMint’s ignorance now reigns

Eight years ago a GOP president stood with black leaders to sign the act’s extension. What happened to his party?
http://www.salon.com/2014/04/15/gops_shameful...
Unfortunately, seven years later, the men Bush appointed to the Supreme Court undid those protections, gutting the Voting Rights Act by invalidating its preclearance requirements. Still, that doesn’t invalidate Bush’s signing the law, or the power of his statement. That’s how Republicans talked about voting rights, not 50 years ago, but eight. Today a new Voting Rights bill has only one Republican champion, Wisconsin’s James Sensenbrenner, although Eric Cantor is described as supportive. I can’t imagine any of the top tier candidates for the 2016 Republican nomination doing, or saying, anything like Bush did.

Republicans aren't against American citizen's right to vote. They just prefer if there were a few more Republicans showing up at the polls and a few less Democrats.

Maybe they should follow the democrats lead and start organizing bus tours on election day. Get bus loads of voters registered in multiple municipalities throughout a region then get them all to vote republican thirty of fifty times on election day. It's just harder to find bus loads of republicans on election day. They all have to work. I wonder if they ever thought about picking up the homeless off the streets and taking them to the polls like the democrats did for Obama. Get them drunk on a nice warm bus and feed them a bologna sandwich in exchange for their vote. If the democraps scream foul, call them haters and racists for wanting to deny those drunken bums their right to vote.

The search for the new Republican Party continues
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/w...
After the 2012 presidential election, the GOP performed an audit on its electoral performance and announced it might have to change some things if it wanted to attract more votes in four years. Two years later, not much has changed. Most Republican elected officials have not softened their stance on social issues, and attempts to reach other demographics haven't changed the party's base.

Based on how things unfolded at the Freedom Summit, many Republicans are perfectly content to continue appealing to the same base that turned out in the 2012 primaries — the most passionate and conservative fringe of the party — without worrying about the potential voters they've left out.

You're a brainwashed hack yourself,, Bush's every move was criticized by the LSM, Il Douche gets a pass and has for 5 years. No investigations into Bengazi, the IRS, fast & furious, Moochelles lavish vacations, etc. No criticism allowed for mr. affirmative action, no proper vetting of him before the election, no stories on his complete lack of experience and his many lies.

Conservatives, not liberals, should protest ABC over Laura Ingraham
http://americablog.com/2014/04/conservatives-...
I’ve complained for years about how “to be Republican” in today’s GOP one must be “conservative.” About how the discussion, every time a GOP presidential primary comes around, is which candidate is the “real conservative”– because to be a true Republican one must of course be “conservative.” And they haggle over which candidate is more like Ronald Reagan (because the candidates wrongly assume that Ronald Reagan, in 2014, would be a conservative – he wouldn’t be).

But now we see the mainstream media making the same mistake, assuming that the only real Republican is a conservative, and usually an angry and caustic conservative at that. Laura Ingraham isn’t a deep-thinker like George Will or Bill Kristol or David Frum. She’s a bomb-thrower, and she represents a lot of what’s wrong with political discourse in America today.

John McCain: Classified Senate Report on Torture 'Chilling'
http://www.nationaljournal.com/congress/john-...
Asked about the report, McCain said it offers further evidence of the inefficiencies of using torture on American enemies. "When you torture someone they will say anything you want to hear to make the pain stop. So I never, ever believed this bologna that, well, because of waterboarding they got information," he said.

McCain said he has not read the report himself, but has "heard a lot about it."

Why is Grand Canyon University different than Apple?
http://www.azcentral.com/story/laurie-roberts...
The Arizona Senate on Tuesday afternoon voted – twice – to defeat a proposal that would save the private for-profit Christian school $764,000 next year – about 75 percent of its total property tax bill – and far more as the school expands.

Meanwhile, Gov. Jan Brewer on Monday signed a bill that'll provide a $5 million tax credit for Apple, for a planned manufacturing plant in Mesa.

Then again, Apple isn't a religion (at least, not to most people) and that may be a factor at the Capitol, post SB 1062.
