Yea that is one thing about the climate, it changes, always has, always will. Sometimes warmer, sometimes cooler. And these changes are reflected in the polar ice packs as well. They expand and contract following along with the whims of the climate cycles. Nothing new here!

A loophole?

This isn't a loophole -- it's a gigantic sinkhole that every one of us pays for and an example of just one of the things that needs to change before we start cutting anything, anywhere.

Oh yeah, Obama's a communist! (Just thought I'd be the first to throw it out there since no doubt someone's gonna post a link that proves it . . . )

If you want proof that BHO is a communist, just read his policies and the Communist manifesto. They are almost one in the same, its where he gets all his ideas, and of course from his late communist father.

US Trade Deficit Up Under Obama

Posted By Doug Matulis

david elosser said:

Our trade deficit from 2009 to the projected 2012 rose by $169 billion. This has resulted in an estimated loss of one million manufacturing jobs in the US, or about 10% of the manufacturing work force. The Chinese, of course, continue to whip our asses over trade.

The Health Care Bill:

Like that shot of the health care bill, guess that's why Nancy P. didn't want to read it before passing it!

Darian Rachal said:

This seems to be the real problem regarding "health care" in the US. Somehow, I suspect this is a direct result of government "involvement". cwy

Hypocrites in the White House

Hillary Chamberlain condemned the "Innocence of Islam" in order to placate the Islamic countries yet has the Obama administration condemned South Park for its anti-Jesus content? I don't recall hearing or reading about that. Did they censure Mel Gibson for the anti-Semitic tone of his movie?

Based on the trailer I viewed on YouTube a fatwa should be issued against Nakoula but for his lack of skill as a producer/director/writer and not for the content!

The fault lies in the incredibly thin skin of devout Muslims and the over-the-top violent reaction of the diehard extremists.

If Christians were blowing up buildings and killing people in response to things like South Park, then they would!

Thoughts On Existence From Old Testament

Posted By Doug Matulis

Darian Rachal said:

It seems to me that this passage, written several thousand years ago, describes man's existence accurately:

"What profit has man from all the labor
which he toils at under the sun?
One generation passes and another comes,
but the world forever stays.
The sun rises and the sun goes down;
then it presses on to the place where it rises.
Blowing now toward the south, then toward the north,
the wind turns again and again, resuming its rounds.
All rivers go to the sea,
yet never does the sea become full.
To the place where they go,
the rivers keep on going.
All speech is labored;
there is nothing one can say.
The eye is not satisfied with seeing
nor is the ear satisfied with hearing.

What has been, that will be;
what has been done, that will be done.
Nothing is new under the sun.
Even the thing of which we say, "See, this is new!"
has already existed in the ages that preceded us.
There is no remembrance of the men of old;
nor of those to come will there be any remembrance
among those who come after them."

So, what does this passage say to you personally and to mankind in general?

A Buddhist in Bangladesh posted something on Facebook uncomplimentary to Islam and the fundamentalist wackos go crazy again.

Well, what were you expecting a civilized response?
