Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

Let's go with a hypothetical for a moment. Let's say that it would have been President Hillary Clinton instead of Obama and everything else is still the way it has been.

Do you think Tired that the public would be just as hard on Hillary as they are on Barack?

"Proof? Where was the proof?"

It's cumulative. You add all of it together along with what others have witness and saw. You don't approach it as if you can cut out what you don't seem to like.

The Bush example isn't comparable at all. They used the chimp to represent his supposed ignorance. It is quite obvious that Obama's public personae does not ignorance, so why use a big lip chimp swinging in the trees?

That's typical...just ignore the evidence that is sufficient to establish it as true.

"Must be a marxist..."

Myth, you shouldn't use terms that he isn't familiar with.

Though I hope most opposition to Obama is from genuine disagreement, I'm afraid there is a racial element to much of the hatred.

Everything from posters at rallies showing Obama as a monkey to the various off handed racial jokes made at his expense....one cannot deny that there is a significant racial element to many people's dislike of Obama.

"Would the visceral defense of Obama be racially motivated as well in your eyes?"

Sorry but the support and defense of Obama does not even come close to the same emotional level that the right puts into lambasting Obama.

I mean the right is just seething with disgust and hate towards Obama.

Support democratic principles? Must be a marxist trying to destroy this nation.

Hey I am just going to assume what your reasoning is without any proof.

Its what you do all the time when dealing with other people on here anyways.

Support Climate change? Must be a socialist.

"And you forgot to show proof of how my opposition to Obama policies had to do with the color of his skin."

This isn't something you would admit to.

Its the ferocity in the manner in which the right has taken issue with Obama the leads me to believe part of the reason is racial in nature.

Its pretty simple the case for a federal and state agency that shares similar goals. The federal sets the standards the state implements those standards.

We got state education departments rejecting curriculums because of a misinformed ideological reason right now.

This paranoia about common core is the problem.

Its unfounded.

And thats the right wing in a nutshell in regards to Obama. Unfounded fear.

"So you think companies would poison the very water they drink if big brother wouldn't stop them"

They have before and if they could they would.

Heck the companies that drill gas wells and maintain them take an approach of total denial after they have drilled wells in an area and homeowners find out they can light their tap water on fire.

Put a different way. Do I believe certain companies would dump toxic chemicals etc in the rivers if there was no government telling them that they couldn't?

Yes I do believe that.

So you base your opinion on conservatives based on a co worker.

No there are lots of sources that inform me.

"THe point is you rail against the wrong people, you claim the tea party is full of insane racists"

Sorry but I really don't ever hear of reasonable Tea Party folks.

And the no compromise aspect of their agenda puts me off too.

It straight up looks like a do as I say type of situation.

Thats rather dictatorial in nature to me.

I have a problem with that.

Another thing is the Tea Party is anything but grassroots in nature. In fact the opposite is true. It was born from the mind of some very well to do conservatives who have a vested interest in the government stepping out of the way so that they can make more money with no consequences in how they go about making that money.

"You call us stupid and idiots if we are conservative. But you don't begin to understand what a Conservative is, only what you fear about them based on leftist media"

The thing is that I do not base everything I say on what the media says. I mostly base it on what I have heard and seen with by own ears and eyes.

I have told one conservative coworker my beliefs on religion and it gets me snide remarks. He's still decent to me though but I can tell he doesn't trust me. I hate that. Because contrary to what you may believe I am a trustworthy person and in all honesty how I treat others is how Jesus said to treat others.

"Stop taking our money to buy votes and bride foreign leaders. AND YOU KNOW they do this."

You tell me who hasn't done that. It'll be a very short list.

"I say FREE us to do what we want, that is fair. live or die pass or fail, you have control over YOUR Life."

Just so you know. I know you haven't read it but that is the main point of Satanism according to their bible.

Nature abhors of vacuum. Make government small and I fully feel entities will step in and take the power that government had and use it for their own selfish needs.

Without a government to control this nation to the extent in which is does right now corporations will seize that power for themselves.

In fact many moons ago companies had more power than the government.

I have issues with unions but they did fight for and win a lot for workers in this nation.

"And yet you vote for these leftist that promise to tax the rich guy."

Uh I have not ever voted. As far as I am concerned none of them are worth a dang.

All this EPA BS is costing you 4 bucks a gallon to get to work.

No Wall Street speculators are doing that.

Before Bush allowed it to happen only companies who used oil to make products would bet on the oil futures market. Bush allowed speculators to enter the market and the price of gas when through the roof.

In fact back in the summer of 08 60 bucks on a barrel of oil could be attributed to speculators.
