“? The source you quote is the disputed IPCC 2007? I think the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change provides its own condemnation. Pachauri, the chairman since 2002 sets up a system that enables him to close a a steel production factory in Northern England, with the loss of 1,700
jobs, and make 650 million dollars in European Union carbon credits. The factory then opens up in India and emits the carbon there.

The following year he says it would be hypocritical to apologise for falsely claiming that Himalayan glaciers could disappear by 2035, because
"You can't expect me to be personally responsible for every word in a
3,000 page report."

You want me to have confidence in people who stand to gain and in 'climate scientists' who, as the emails from the University of East Anglia show, acted to keep research papers they did not like out
of academic journals.”

“You can't argue with a fool who thinks like this fool does. He and his ilk should be banned from anything that the same scientist who ALL agree on global warming created. He shouldn't fly, drive, use a computer, eat, go to the hospital, have a baby, take any medicine, watch tv, listen to the radio, wear glasses, read, or anythying else. He should stay in his cave and hand write passages from the bible - but of course, he would have to use is own blood as he can't belive in writing utensils because he doesn't believe in science.”

“You think? You think you will feel very differently when it is a person with a brain chemistry issue, or a person with a religious crazyness issue, when you are dead, lying on the ground, and you do not want to be dead, and you want to get up and walk away, to go see your girlfriend, who will be mad, because you are late?

Please, explain to granny here, how that makes a difference. A real difference. I would like to get all the details.”

“"The Lybia mission was a complete success and cost ZERO American lives."
An immoral and illegal success is no success.

"He promised to close GITMO, and put forth a plan to do so, only to be blocked by Congress. The POTUS is not a dictator, so that is not a broken campaign promise."
He is Commander and Chief - he could have transferred the prisoners to US prisons on day one.

He also promised to leave the States alone on medical marijuana, but instead has ramped up federal prosecution and action against it.

He signed NDAA and re-authorized the patriot act.

He has killed US Citizens (one a minor no less) with out trial...

The list goes on...”

“Gary Johnson should be on the ballot in all 50 states.”

Fred Mangels on Aug 30, 2012 at 18:48:34

“Oklahoma just booted Gary Johnson off the ballot yesterday, or the day before. GJ got on the ballot because the local Americans Elect affiliate put him there. The national Americans Elect group dropped their campaign and gave up. That gave the OK Attorney General an excuse to boot Gary because he gave the national AE group precedence (even though they weren't complaining).

You can bet there was some Republicans that brought this up to the Attorney General and forced the issue.”
