    Actually, your right dead the models are wrong as are most of the predictions by the IPCC, NOAA , NASA etc. Unfortunately, for you and the denier set they’re wrong not because they’re too radical in their predictions, but because they’ve been if anything way too conservative. The warming is coming on faster as are [...]

    Maybe I’m wrong but doesn’t Hamas’ own charter call for the destruction of the “Zionist entity” and for the killing of Jews everywhere? I tend to take such people at their word. Israel has been at War with these people for 66 yrs. The latest battle is just that a battle in an ongoing War. [...]

  • Its really simple math isn’t it? If 1% own everything then 99% own nothing and have no discretionary income to spend. Eventually, this kind of economy starts to take down portions of the 1%. The only reason this guy is whining is he’s being told by his own nos. cruncher s that some of his businesses are failing because they have a shrinking customer base. Guys like the Koch’s couldn’t care less if the rest of us have any money , because they sell basic shit like coal, oil, and Nat. gas and other Industrial level feed stocks. Their business plan won’t be hurt if nobody can afford more toys from China or the best food. Billions of peasants paying for the basics,people with NO power is what they would prefer. They want the LIBERTY to do business as they see fit. Other people’s freedoms and needs are of NO consequence to them. Your on your own in KOCHville, if you didn’t inheriet a hundred million like them tough shit that’s your problem LOSER.

  • Both so called wings of the money party are deeply involved in the slow motion destruction of the public commons and the handing out of it to their pals. Its wide open corruption that’s been re-framed as reform.

  • The town I live in was taken over in a similar way. The GOP Gov. decided that the town had an economic emergency so he pushed aside the elected Admin. and appointed an un-elected board of Corp. shills to run whole sections of the town. He left the Mayor and Council in their offices with little to do. These kinds of actions are happening all over the country.

  • Unions bad, corrupt banks good. So says our 1 party the $$ party.

    We might take a look back in human history to see what happens to societies that have collapsed from various causes. The collapse of Mayan society should be of particular interest.

  • Obamacare is a shit sandwich being served up as A sirloin steak. I think, Obama’s infamous quote , “it was the best he could do,” was total BS. It was what he intended to do from the start. He basically, got huge pay offs for the D party and himself to run on for a second term, as the price for this REPUBLICAN created Corp. Health Insurance system. He told all of us he didn’t have the fucking votes for a Public Option when in reality he had already sold us all down the river to the HealthCare vultures long before that statement. He is in fact a friggin corrupt shitbag. His latest lie and disinfo deal is his so called EPA regs. forcing Energy companies to lower CO2 emissions. Its total BS again. In fact, his so called regs. on emissions don’t kick in till maybe after he’s out of office and only after the same polluters can fork over lots of loot to his party pals once again. The Parties are nothing more then extortion operations since Citizens United. The rest of us have been thrown under the wheels of these pirate operations. Only some kind of rebellion or Revolution will stop this now. Scalia and the rest of the SCOTUS need to be shown the door ASAP. Congress next. Elections under the present rules are a farce no better then the old Soviet system. You can VOTE day and night and you will never get near the real power in this country, the Int’l Corps. that now own the system.

    We’ve returned from whence we started and simply don’t recognize the place its been so long since we’ve been here. For the last 34 yrs. we’ve been steadily heading back to where society was prior to the Great Depression. We’ve now reached the place where great wealth once again holds almost all the reins of [...]

    My guess is you look close enough at this so called law you’ll find ALEC lurking somewhere in shades behind it. Like the infamous voter ID laws this kind of law is designed to circumvent Civil Rights laws, but is primarily aimed directly at minorities, any minorities these folks decide they don’t like at the [...]

  • Thanks, I didn’t get to read the entire poll. Anyway, it wasn’t much of a guess was it?

  • Such polling leaves out an important question. I would guess, if you were to ask this same group if they believed the present PA governing authority or coalition sincerely wants peace with Israel, I’d guess you’d get an even lower % that believe that.

    The fraud is mostly there because nobody is looking. While the cats away as they say, the mice will play. I’ve had a similar experience in my local area. What’s needed is more spotlights on these people. They HATE daylight.

    “The common people always work against their own self interests.” Most honestly don’t even know what their own self interest is anymore. Many watch FOX and listen to Dirtbag Talk Radio hots like Rushbo Limpdick and buy into their whole world-view. Give these folks a scapegoat and their happy.

    Good idea. Unfortunately, the Gov’t is a pest hole of corruption these days. Since Kennedy its been just getting worse with each Admin. Absolute lawlessness is now the rule not the exception.

    I had the pleasure in 1973 to shake Ellsberg’s hand and I got an email reply from him a few years ago. He’s a true American HERO in my book.

    Maybe so, but it didn’t turn out that way for me. I cut back on my eating if anything. I find it much easier to keep the weight off then trying to do it running my knees off. Exercise and weight loss is way over rated.

    I disagree, I don’t get any hungrier from them.

    I use Truvia, its ok. I also eat stuff with sucralose instead of sugar sometimes. The artificial sweets are the methadone of the food world. Getting totally off sugar after a lifetime of eating the stuff is probably harder then getting off of Heroin. In a yr. I lost 15 pounds just by cutting out 75% of the sugar from my diet.
