You're much too pessimistic for your own good. Instead of giving kudos to Republicans for standing against bad policies in their own party, you continue to follow the yellow brick road in the Land of Oz.

I think the reason why right whiners ignore this issue is that they believe that the great rapture will happen before the really nasty aspects of global warming take hold. Jesus will return & save them all any day now so why worry about the future.

Maybe dumbass Republicans in Congress should address the families of over 4000 dead soldiers why they were sent to Iraq. So far they were told WMDs, Links to Al Qaeda, Spreading Democracy, or was it about oil.

I find you total assh*les to be such a f*cking joke ranting & having a fit about Benghazi where 4 people died and yet say absolutely nothing when your hero George W Bush sent 40000 soldiers to their deaths in a made up war based on lies.

My God, they weren't even given properly armored vehicles & body armor.

You people are a bunch of sick f*cks who ignored the travesty in Iraq while lying to make up a false issue in Benghazi.

Let me make it clear that I wish that all people would just see other people as different and respect that. But it's a different world now. The politically correct and hypocritical agenda of progressive liberalism/communism/Marxism has made us all crazy, confused and suspicious of each other. By design.

Probably time for all of us to wise up.

First Lady requires more than twenty attendants

By the staff of thelastcrusade
Update: First Lady Now Requires 26 Servants

“In my own life, in my own small way, I have tried to give back to this country that has given me so much,” she said.“See, that’s why I left a job at a big law firm for a career in public service,“ Michelle Obama
No, Michele Obama does not get paid to serve as the First Lady and she doesn’t perform any official duties. But this hasn’t deterred her from hiring an unprecedented number of staffers to cater to her every whim and to satisfy her every request in the midst of the Great Recession. Just think Mary Lincoln was taken to task for purchasing china for the White House during the Civil War. And Mamie Eisenhower had to shell out the salary for her personal secretary.
How things have changed! If you’re one of the tens of millions of Americans facing certain destitution, earning less than subsistence wages stocking the shelves at Wal-Mart or serving up McDonald cheeseburgers, prepare to scream and then come to realize that the benefit package for these servants of Miz Michele are the same as members of the national security and defense departments and the bill for these assorted lackeys is paid by John Q. Public:
$172,2000 - Sher, Susan (CHIEF OF STAFF)
$140,000 - Frye, Jocelyn C.(DEPUTY ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT AND DIRECTOR OF POLICY AND PROJECTS FOR THE FIRST LADY)
$113,000 - Rogers, Desiree G.(SPECIAL ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT AND WHITE HOUSE SOCIAL SECRETARY)
$102,000 - Johnston, Camille Y.(SPECIAL ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT AND DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS FOR THE FIRST LADY)

Do something useful duhmdem, and research this for us-the US tax payers....cause it sounds like we need to CUT, CUT and CUT some "jawbs" ourselves, like about 20 -21 CUTS, if dis here Bullchit is true, cause this is WORKING CLASS America-NOT fckn parliament!
lol, that was a heck of sacrifice, wasn't it? Giving up actually working for a living for "a career in public service". Who does that cow think she's fooling? The only public "getting" served is Queen Michelle. Getting her hair done everyday for all those photo ops must be exhausting, dontcha know? Funny how the cow thinks of herself as a celebrity. Personally, I think she looks like a man in drag.

But it's just selective "fascism" - a Christian business owner refusing to serve gays or a Jewish business owner refusing to serve Muslims - that isn't okay.
Business owners can refuse to serve anyone for any reason.
Fascism is forcing anyone to do anything against their will or personal beliefs.
Selective fascism is hypocrisy.
You don't get this?
personal choice is fine. though if for some it isn't, then let the lawyers hash it out.

a specific personal choice that's backed by legislation is not ok. it's a waste of legislative time and taxpayer money. just look at the gay marriage bans that have bit the dust.

Krauthammer: The myth of "settled science"
By Charles Krauthammer
Washington Post Writers Group
POSTED: 02/22/2014 05:01:00 PM MST248 COMMENTS| UPDATED: A DAY AGO

""The debate is settled," asserted propagandist in chief Barack Obama in his latest State of the Union address. "Climate change is a fact." Really? There is nothing more anti-scientific than the very idea that science is settled, static, impervious to challenge."

Obama is an idiot.

"So much for settledness. And climate is less well understood than breast cancer. If climate science is settled, why do its predictions keep changing? And how is it that the great physicist Freeman Dyson, who did some climate research in the late 1970s, thinks today's climate-change Cassandras are hopelessly mistaken?"

Warmers are stupid and hysterical

"They deal with the fluid dynamics of the atmosphere and oceans, argues Dyson, ignoring the effect of biology, i.e., vegetation and topsoil. Further, their predictions rest on models they fall in love with: "You sit in front of a computer screen for 10 years and you start to think of your model as being real." Not surprisingly, these models have been "consistently and spectacularly wrong" in their predictions, write atmospheric scientists Richard McNider and John Christy — and always, amazingly, in the same direction.

Settled? Even the U.K.'s national weather service concedes there's been no change — delicately called a "pause" — in global temperature in 15 years. If even the raw data is recalcitrant, let alone the assumptions and underlying models, how settled is the science?"

Blind leading the blind hysterics

"Climate-change proponents have made their cause a matter of fealty and faith. For folks who pretend to be brave carriers of the scientific ethic, there's more than a tinge of religion in their jeremiads. If you whore after other gods, the Bible tells us, "the Lord's wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit"

Religious fanatics, as loony as the islamofascists, even more dangerous

. "Climate change is a fact." Really? There is nothing more anti-scientific than the very idea that science is settled, static, impervious to challenge."

It cost them the Senate by defeating better candidates ( running a witch, for example) in the primaries & costing the US its AAA credit rating and following it with costing the economy 24 billion with their last fiasco.
Mitt Romney had to go so far right to try to get Tea Party support that it cost him the election.

climate is cyclic in nature regardless of how man buses we drive or cow farts we introduce into the atmosphere....

ask a 17,000 year old stalagmite...

"Also on the continent, Niggemann et al.(2003) studied the petrographical and geochemical properties of three stalagmites found in a cave in Sauerland, Germany, from which they developed a climatic history covering the last 17,600 years. As they describe their findings, the records obtained from the three stalagmites "resemble records from an Irish stalagmite (McDermott et al., 1999)." Specifically, they note that their data provide clear evidence for the existence of the Little Ice Age, Medieval Warm Period and Roman Warm Period, which also implies the existence of the Dark Ages Cold Period that separated the Medieval and Roman Warm Periods.
