It was totally related to your post. You claimed that conservatives don't force anything on anybody. The republican party is the self proclaimed "Conservative" party. Moderate members of the Republican party have been "forced" to toe the "Conservative" line and march in step lest they be shunned.

Conservatives forced themselves into the Tea Party Movement and forced moderates out. Conservatives calling themselves moderates are now forcing themselves into the "Independent" party.

Just in the past decade "Conservatives" forced tax cuts for the wealthy upon us all. They forced us into two wars of choice. They forced us into a banking crisis and forced us into a deep recession. Conservatives have forced us into huge deficits huge debts and a long drawn out recovery.

Nearly everything the "conservatives" sponsor is forced upon us through deception and lies. Conservatives have always been cons.

Honorable Senator Diane Feinstein's statement:

"When the gunman realizes nobody else is armed, he will lay down his weapons and turn himself in. Thats just human nature......"

Feinstein and Boxer Ask Californians to Lay Down Their Weapons During Statewide Manhunt

Throughout the day, Senators Feinstein and Boxer made desperate pleas for their California constituents to turn in their guns and not confront the crazed gunman because this would be a perfect test of their anti-gun proposals.

“The Senators feel the best course of action is to remove all weapons from law enforcement and private citizens so no one else gets hurt,” said a Senate communications intern.“When the gunman realizes that nobody else is armed, he will lay down his weapons and turn himself in…. that’s just human nature.”

Okay, now you need to get this right. Carbon dioxide is not "made", it is only recycled. If the cycle begins as carbon dioxide being part of the atmosphere the next step may be to consumed by a tree. From being held within the tree after it dies then remains in what may turn to coal. From coal it may be dug up and burned as fuel. Once the coal is burned the carbon dioxide is again released back into the air thus completing the cycle. No more or no less carbon exists at any point of the cycle.
This is exactly why burning wood as fuel is considered "Carbon neutral".
According to Jesus Christ, republicans cause global warming.

It's true, conservatives don't want to change anything. The problem is, at what point in history to they want to go back to or remain? Back when the nation was young and folks got 40 acres, a mule and a musket…and blacks were known as "Negros" and kept as slaves? Or later when blacks were free but had separate facilities and "knew their place"? Or at least a point in time when there wasn't so many dang minorities.
In all cases, conservatives want to conserver an era when the population was virtually all white and whites felt like this was their country. Conservatives feel a deep sense of betrayal. They believe that as whites, in a country founded by whites, that they are, by virtue of the color of their skin and their Christianity, entitled.
When non-whites interfere and the government does nothing to stop the interference, let alone support the interference--and let alone further that a bunch of minorities elected a black man to the presidency!--they feel that their very country has betrayed them. Hence, the anger and bitterness one finds from most conservatives and Republicans on this forum.
Ain't dat right, fellers?
Blacks have been in Government many years.
They WORKED to get there, just like WE HAVE TO

Need surgery? Good luck getting hospital cost info

Want to know how much a hip replacement will cost? Many hospitals won't be able to tell you, at least not right away — if at all. And if you shop around and find centers that can quote a price, the amounts could vary astronomically, a study found.

Routine hip replacement surgery on a healthy patient without insurance may cost as little as $11,000 — or up to nearly $126,000.

That's what researchers found after calling hospitals in every state, 122 in all, asking what a healthy 62-year-old woman would have to pay to get an artificial hip. Hospitals were told the made-up patient was the caller's grandmother, had no insurance but could afford to pay out of pocket — that's why knowing the cost information ahead of time was so important.

About 15 percent of hospitals did not provide any price estimate, even after a researcher called back as many as five times.

The researchers were able to obtain a complete price estimate including physician fees from close to half the hospitals. But in most cases, that took contacting the hospital and doctor separately.

"Our calls to hospitals were often greeted by uncertainty and confusion," the researchers wrote. "We were frequently transferred between departments, asked to leave messages that were rarely returned, and told that prices could not be estimated without an office visit."
