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.

"Why don't you like fiscal responsibility low tax and small govt"

I'll tell you what bothers me about that. The issues we have in this nation. You infrastructure etc. If we don't pay for the upkeep and construction of that who will. More importantly in what way will those who do go after a return on their "investment"

I don't have an issue with low taxes. But we are a big nation with lots of things that needs money to take care of them. Its better if its done by OUR government that some company looking to make a profit.

And a small government I fear won't have the ability to properly govern our nation.

In other words I only believe in state rights to a certain point.

I don't believe each state should essentially be allowed to do whatever it wants. I can see discriminatory actions taking place from that.

I have no dependents. Believe me if I got an earned income tax credit I wouldn't be ashamed to tell you.

I am not playing any games here. I don't know right off hand what the percentage is.

I mean hello! Bad maths. The only thing I worry about is if I have to pay in.

Which so far in my life I haven't.

We know what the method will be and it won't be the of the bloodless type.

If you can get in a position where your opinion is heard then it makes no difference if you are a leader or not.

You opinion can still influence people.

"As a matter of fact, with the earned income tax credit, you make money from taxes at the end of the year don't ya"

LOL! Operating on an assumption eh?

Sorry but no. I make too much money to get an earned income tax credit.

Mississippi Tea Party Chairman Roy Nicholson posted a statement at his group’s website on Friday proclaiming that “the US Supreme Court has joined with the Executive and Legislative branches of the federal government in abandoning the Constitution, the Rule of Law, and with that ruling abandoned the People.”

“The all out oppression of all people has begun,” Nicholson continued. “In such cases submission is treason. Treason against the Constitution and the valid legitimate government of the nation to which we have pledged our allegiance for years. To resist by all means that are right in the eyes of God is not rebellion or insurrection, it is patriotic resistance to invasion. . . . May godly courageous leaders rise up in His wisdom and power to lead us in displacing the criminal invaders.”

Here you go. And he aint the only one.

"If you think the Govt is full of Christians, you are far more deluded than I thought."

Well you do have a point there.

Taxed enough. As far as I am concerned all Churches need to be taxed.

I doubt few if any churches are politically inactive.

Want a say then pay your way.

Oh I am not just talking about religiously inclined insane folks.

I am talking about insurrectionists and the like too.

People who called for armed revolution can not have their head on straight.

Such an act would decimate this country.

Yet somehow you hear that a lot coming from the tea party.

And in case it escapes you the reason I feel that way is because being an atheist means I am a minority in this nation. I have no representation in government to speak of.

Try that on for size and see how it feels.

You've got lots of people representing you.

And yet you complain something has been taken from you.

I find that hilarious.

And the Tea Party gives people who in all honesty are insane a platform from which to speak.

I just read an article about a Republican who stated that Islam is not a religion.

The kicker is that every single point he made about that could also be said of a lot of Christians especially the Tea Party folks.

All of them. I dont think they have one good idea on setting this nation on the correct path.

The Tea Party itself is overrun with some very hateful people.

Of course you will disagree with that but every single thing I have heard them speak about does not move me to believe that they have any of my interests in mind.

One of the big things is the issue Religious freedom.

Seems an awful lot like they want this country and its laws to reflect in totality the Christian way. With no room for any other beliefs.

So much for freedom eh?

"We can turn the country around following tea party principles "

Tea Party principles would damage this nation. People of certain beliefs and backgrounds would lose rights and xenophobia would reign supreme.

"There is no evidence whatsoever that race has anything to do with the resistance to Obama"

Please prove this. LOL!

" Why did the people take the house from the dems if they want Obama to further his agenda? If they are wise to the right as you say, why is the house secure and the Senate now in play? "

Two things. Gerrymandering and Citizen United.

In this day and age money does everything and when near unlimited amounts of money is allowed to influence politics guess whose voice gets heard the most?

Courtesy of conservative judges by the way.

Hmmm, Tired...could you explain the Marxist aspects within the Senate? I'm not asking you identify a political party but what aspects of Marxism is there in the Senate.

Oh and the contrariness!

Do you guys realize how utterly ignorant that makes you look?

Years ago. Get our POW back! Obama does. Why'd you do that for?

Jesus H Christ?

The black man really freaking damaged the collective conservative conscience.

Thats why even if you get the senate back you won't have it for long. People are getting wise to the idiocy coming from the right.

And just so you know. Things in this country are no where near as bad as you doomsayers believe they are.

The biggest problem this country has is the right wing goody two shoes who only want things to go how they see fit and when they don't get their way they throw a tantrum and try to stop any progress.

Goodness the stupidity you guys ooze is nauseating at times.

Take back control of the senate?

BY ALL MEANS PLEASE DO!

That'd be like giving a drunk the keys to a car.

The right is in no position to lead this country.

To many megalomaniacs who only care about their "freedoms" and no one elses.

By all means put those fools in power and you will see a clusterf***k of epic proportions.

In fact the fiasco that would come from that would sign the death warrant of conservatives in politics...or what would more than likely happen is that everything they said they would do they wouldn't do.

Good idea, Tiredofit. Let's do it.
