    tererun, as usual, hit the nail on the head with her post. The typically older people who have no problem with our trashing the environment--and it is not all of them, but many of them--should expect the same disrespect in return. Quid pro quo.
    I don't want to hear the demagoguery and false claims from the Left way more then you don't want to hear from us about the debt.

    Your premise is based on supposition and a agenda driven catastrophic fairy tale that has about as much legitimacy as a Zombie apocolypse, 17 Trillion in structural debt is substantive and can be easily quantified.

    Hey, Obama's new NSA data farm in Utah is going to need 65 megawatts of power.

    You know why they didn't use Bald Eagle Killing Windmills and ineffecient, highly eco-destructive Solar power to run it ?

    Because he wants it to work.

    If climate change ruins the future it will be the fault of millions of conservatives around the world that sabotaged every single thing we tried to do to fix this. If it doesn't, it will be because of scumbag liberals, scientists and other trash that worked hard to solve this problem while the courageous conservative patriots threw a tantrum face down in their pillows.

    This is the first time in history your mental retardation has threatened global civilization.

    Retarded is being gullible enough to believe just about everything your'e told and being partial to a idea because it suites your political agenda.

    Retarded is not having the base intelligence to realize just how baseless and empty the arguments for AGW are and thinking for one second by giving more of your money to bureaucrats your somehow saving the world.

    Retarded is thinking your part of some noble cause when really your just a bunch of easily manipulated pawns for a few rich and Corrupt liberal politicians.

    Scientists brought you the internet, your computer, the atomic bomb, a long list of incredible works. Yet when it comes to climate change the scientists are suddenly co-conspirators or fools?

    Maybe you should go back to sweeping beer cans out of the back of your truck and stfu.

    Scientists also brought us the practice of bleeding, Freudian psychology and frontal lobotomies. Scientists brought us the next ice age, the hole in the ozone, acid rain, global warming and when that didn't pan out, "global warming".

    But if you believe whatever scientists tell us must be true, then you believe in the petition project, right?


    31,487 American scientists have signed this petition, including 9,029 with PhDs Global Warming Petition Project.

    If the discussion is, "obvious Republican racism", then there is no real discussion to derail.

    People used to believe everything the church said, too. Aren't you glad we figured out that just because the church said it doesn't mean that it isn't bull****? Taking a scientists word on a subject as being, "the gospel", is no worse than the blindly following church teachings during the Middle Ages. There are literally billions of dollars on the table that is ear marked for global warming research. it's very nave to think that global warming researchers wouldn't stretch the truth to keep the cash flowing.

    The only danger to, "the future", is the Libbos who want to take us back to the 15th Century, making us all serfs, subject to the wims of the ruling class. Anyone want to guess who wants to be the, "ruling class"?

    And the Earth is flat. And dinosaurs and humans walked in the same place in the same era. And souls have mass. And Obama is a Marxist Kenyan fascist Muslim. And 9/11 was an inside job.

    This is why I rarely debate around here any more. Many people accept blatantly absurd lies as truth and do the reverse as well. And when we try to call them on the BS, the kill-the-messenger crowd shows up in droves.

    You have so thoroughly convinced yourself that climate change science is a myth that there is not an ounce of facts, research, or science that could possibly overcome your confirmation bias. You will discard any evidence in favor of it and accept any argument, no matter how absurd, against it.

    Prove me wrong with your actions.
