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.

Tired-The main issue is that...my other critters that could be 'outfoxed', and end up in a trap, so it may become a shooting situation, with an old hen, in a rabbit cage, for bait.i had done a bit of trapping, when I was a younger lad.Thanks, for your tips. Oh, speaking of "fox", even though Kelly's correction needed a correction, it was priceless.What kind of a person believes that propaganda?

Alestorm: I am a Cider Drinker!

When the moon shines On the cow shed And we're rollin' in the hay All the cows are out there grazing And the milk is on its way.

I am a cider drinker I drinks it all of the day I am a cider drinker It soothes all me troubles away Oh arr oh arr aay Oh arr oh arr aay.

It's so cosy in the kitchen With the smell of rabbit stew When the breeze blows 'cross the farmyard You can smell the cow sheds too. (Oh, I've never smelt nothing like it in all my life!)

When those combine wheels stops turning And a hard day's work is done There's a pub around the corner It's the place we have our fun. (Arr, we'll have some fun 'n' all.)

Now dear old Mabel When she's able We takes a stroll down Lover's Lane And we'll sink a pint of Scrumpy Then we'll play old nature's game. (Ha ha ha! Oo arr!) But we end up in the duck pond When the pub is sized to close With me breeches full o' tadpoles And the newts between me toes.

I guess outing me as a metalhead is supposed to somehow diminish what I say? LOL!

What's really freaking funny is the lengths Stillhere/Tiredofit is going to try and sling mud at me.

OMG! Its so hilarious that Stillhere is looking me up on the net.

Getting all spazzy over my like of death metal music.

He didn't even have the decency to tell anyone the name of that band whose lyrics he posted.

They're called Vader.

Myth you really like polls. So I guess you agree with all the polls that say the majority of Americans think obama is doing a terrible job as president.

Myth, you have gone over the edge with your religious rants. Christians have their own sharia law? You are crazy.

You have played this "poor little persecuted myth" on here enough. It makes me sick. Why do you lie about Christians?

Thanks,Stillhere for posting the TV ratings. I thought I would have to do it this evening. Lol We can't let myth get by with such false posts.

Hey Stillhere. All those posts about foxes. They could have been in one post?

I guess posting a bunch of one sentence posts is your way of burying what others are saying.

"That is a good sign, at least the majority of people are seeing truthful reporting"

Actually the post I linked to showed full well that what they are getting is highly partisan in nature that is more often than not just a bunch of misinformation.

There was a study that showed that those who watch Fox News actually became LESS informed than if that had watched no news at all.

Thats pretty pathetic when your chosen news outlet actually makes you less knowledgeable about current issues.

Most people on the left by the way don't get their news by way of traditional televised news.

Also amongst conservatives they relied on Fox News as a single source. Meaning when it comes to the news they get most get it from Fox.

The left doesn't have one major source but many different and more diverse sources.

Posted 574 days ago.

mythravere

Its not a majority you can be proud of.

Conservatives are traditional in a multitude of ways and that includes using the TV to get their news. Especially when it comes to older conservatives.

Liberals on the other hand have a far wider footprint when it comes to news consumption habits. Which spreads out their numbers.

All it means when its said the Fox is the number one news outlet is that they just have a larger number of TV consumers.

I bet none of the numbers you posted show anything about internet news consumption and who and how many is consuming their news by way of the internet.

And lastly something for those folks to think about.

They want total religious freedom. Ok. But I hope they understand that it won't just be their religion that gets total freedom.

That guy that ran the Ten Commandments statue down and took a leak on it....if he declared the desecration of opposing religions and their personal property to be a religious freedom of his...? What do you do about that.

If religious sentiment can circumvent our laws then things are going to get messy.

But who am I kidding? Its only the Christians who will have their religious freedom protected right?

Posted 574 days ago.

mythravere

Then they pull out the persecution card. Stating that their religious freedoms are being stamped out.

While also stating that this nation is solely a Christians Nation then taking issue with Muslims supposedly wanting to instill Sharia Law on this country...ignoring they want their own religious laws influencing every facet of this nation. Which in a sense is them wanting to institute their own "Sharia Law".

Its so very hilarious.

I also have to point out that this extreme view that the right possesses of the left is of their own doing.

When a group of people tell themselves repeatedly that the others across the aisle are the enemy and are out to get them....things get really bent out of shape.

And the sad thing is there is no assuaging their fears. The mere act of trying to calm them down gets them wound up even more.

Thats part of why I laugh when they accuse the left of using scare tactics. Apparently they can't see the scare tactics being used on their own kind.
