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.

Socialism always hurts the average ciitizen and creates wealthy and cruel leaders who are dictators in reality. Free enteprise gives us all a chance to prosper and have a good life .

I give a big thank you to the framers of our constitution.

Just like he promised, obama plans to transform this nation into his own ideology and cultural majority. After the election he plans to flood this country with immigrants who have no interest in being America loving citizens. What a disaster he has been and we will live with the effects forever.

"As for capitalism, I say this, it is the FREE state of man unlike socialism, so that being said the pursuit of happiness would require capitalism, not big govt socialism" Stillhere.

You do realize that capitalism in its unregulated state is a form of survival of the fittest?

Capitalism left unchecked and to its own designs is as much of a destructive beast as socialism.

Literally if something doesn't make business sense then its not done. A consumer,employee heck nation is at the whim of those who run the corporations.

And the shear amount of regulation on business bears out that corporations can not be trusted to do what is right. They do what is right for themselves which has in the past lead to huge injustices being committed on people.

No better an example is the Cuyahoga River.

The persons and companies that polluted that river had a choice. And you can see where that lead.

A cross on a courthouse lawn or bible quote on a locker room wall are hardly law.

It says they cannot pass a law establishing a religion or interfering with our right to practice one.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ..."

Do forgive me but I still don't see seperation of church and state in that sentence.

Former vice president Al Gore stands to personally benefit from proposals he advocates to ward off global warming. Government solutions, such as Cap and Trade, may very well put billions into his pocket.

It is an interesting situation. If Al Gore gets his way and governments undertake drastic measures to counter the fear of global warming, then Al Gore gets rich – filthy rich. It makes one wonder what his real motive is.

Climate Change Weekly #141

According to Professor John Christy, director of the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama/Huntsville, October 1 marked the 18th anniversary of no warming as measured by Earth’s climate satellite system. Despite a continued and marked rise in emissions and atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide, Earth’s temperature has plateaued for the past 18 years.

The overriding point though is the more things change the more they stay the same.

The only way to actually see any change in our Government for the better is to honestly wipe the slate clean. Get rid of every single one of them and start fresh.

But instead of picking from people who are seeking political office something different needs to be done.

Call it a civil service term in the government. Draft qualified people directly out of the populace. Either appoint them through a special process that vets their abilities or do elections and let the people vote for them.

The election process as it stands has been compromised. And so has effective government.

"If we just don't lose it before this bunch in DC is replaced."Ithink

Replaced with what exactly? In case you can't remember a lot of our rights were undermined Pre-Obama.

Especially in regards to online privacy.

I mean don't you find it troubling that the NSA wants and gets access to computer hardware and software to make backdoors they can later exploit.

All of that was brought into play during the last presidents run. Obama just continued it.

Many things are not mentioned,even by definition, in the constitution, Ever read about abortion, the internet, or gay marriage in it?

Some words were not even in existence in those early days. But everything we need is in it.If we just don't lose it before this bunch in DC is replaced.
