I was just informing you of how the milk industry operated since you obviously had no clue.
I didn't ask about the milk industry, I asked about lily's patents farm. Why did you jump in with generic information when I was asking for specific information.

I've forgotten more about dairys than you'll know in your lifetime.

And they always bring up Al Gore's name because he has made a success of the green message using the same Capitalist system the fossil fuelers use.
So they call him a hypocrite because he doesn't live in a tree house. I'll tell you what a hypocrite is, setting up dummy climate research organisations & web sites funded by Exxon & co on the pretence of saving the planet but what they are really about is saving their profits. Those same profits that YOU & I pay for on a daily basis. Yet we all help kill our environment by doing so, rather than spend our money elsewhere to give us a far better outcome.
Trying to discredit clean energy in favour of dirty is a blight on humanity, and in the end will cost us 10 times that of doing the right thing. One bad storm can cost a lot more than a few solar panels & wind turbines.
"Lauer challenged him on the fact that he had criticized the influence of fossil fuel money in television, but then got very wealthy selling his network to another network that exists because of fossil fuel money. Al Jazeera had the money to pay Gore $500 million because of fossil fuels. Lauer asked Gore if he saw a contradiction in his position. While Gore said he understands the criticism, he disagrees with it because Al Jazeera is a great network and has won major awards.

Now, someone can correct me if I am wrong, but I don’t ever recall Gore saying that it was OK to take fossil fuel money in television as long as the network is a good network or is one that has won awards. "

I agree. You are talking about Obama, right?
Because I KNOW you wouldn't think a traffic jam trumped lying to the entire nation on at least six different occasions and abuse of power affecting us all.
So glad we agree on this.
But as much as I'd love to stay and chat, there's more house hunting research to do.
So later, Homer.
Say, can you come up with a good slogan for Obama's resignation while I'm gone? You're so good at that.

Wrong.
You deny it because your handlers told you to.
Science has convinced most of the world that climate change is real!!
But the Repugnant Party of the USA is an outlier, living in denial and ignorance.
You sound like the perfect disciple of this ignorance.
----------
U.S. stands out as among the least concerned about climate change
Top climate change scientists from 39 countries say they are 95% certain that global warming is manmade, according to a new report from the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The report, released every six years and reviewed by over 1,000 experts, also warns that the upper limit on greenhouse gases will be exceeded within decades if emissions continue at the current rate.
The group calls for “substantial and sustained reductions of greenhouse gas emissions.”
Climate change is a leading global concern among the public, too, according to a recent Pew Research Center survey of people in 39 countries earlier this year. A median of 54% identify it as a major threat, the highest among eight threats tested this spring. Only financial instability conjures a similar level of concern.
At least half the public in 24 of the 39 countries say climate change is a major threat to their nation. People in Greece (87%), South Korea (85%), Brazil (76%), Lebanon (74%) and Japan (72%) express the highest levels of concern.
However, China and the U.S., the world’s largest greenhouse gas emitters, are among the least worried about climate change. About four-in-ten Americans (40%) and Chinese (39%) say it is a major threat to their countries. Only those in the Czech Republic, Jordan, Israel, Egypt and Pakistan are less concerned than the Chinese and Americans.
There is a sharp partisan divide on this issue among Americans, with Democrats (55%) more than twice as likely as Republicans (22%) to view climate change as a major threat.
Another Pew Research survey in March also found large partisan divisions on views toward global warming. While 87% of Democrats believe there is solid evidence of global warming, just 44% of Republicans agree. Similarly, Republicans express more doubt about humans’ role in climate change; 19% say global warming is a result of human activity compared with 57% of Democrats.""
----------
Repugnants also suppported the tobacco lobby for decades as they said smoking was not harmful to human health.
How'd that one work out??
Same with climate change.
Just a matter of time.
Your asinine opinions are noted. Now go play.

Supper will be ready soon.

WASHINGTON — In announcing his long-awaited plans to overhaul government surveillance policies, President Obama on Friday sought to occupy a middle space in the simmering debate on U.S. spying.

He pushed for a greater measure of transparency and oversight in how the intelligence community goes about its work, but rejected calls to end the National Security Agency's controversial telephone metadata program altogether.

Funny how Obama's initial "outrage" came across as so sincere and the promise "to get to the bottom" of each and every one of those scandals came across as so convincing but then simply blew away - like the liberal media's yesterday's news - until they were long forgotten and suddenly "phony". The outrage, getting to the bottom of things and someone being held accountable were phony too then.
Lie, cheat, steal...whatever.
Hope the poster, Frank, is paying attention.
"....each and every one of those scandals .." = Delusional faux scandals

"The outrage" = the daily whine with Galt and sometimes without :-)

......a Pennsylvania judge has struck down a state law requiring voters to show photo ID in order to cast a ballot, saying it places an "unreasonable" burden on voters.

Republicans passed the law in 2012, saying it would prevent voter fraud.

Its opponents argued hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians lacked acceptable IDs and could be discouraged from voting as a result.

State courts have barred enforcement of the law since 2012.
