    These effects of GLOBAL WARMING are becoming more and more evident. Earth Quakes are sure to follow if Cap and Trade is not past immediately.

    I think the thing Obama is going to warn against next is that if we don't pass health care and Cap and Trade by the end of the year we are going to be hit by an Extinction Level Event, (ELE) Asteroid.

    And don't even get me started about the whole Anti-Christ connection.

    But I guess what we need to be most concerned with according to Al Gore is that some of that 2 million degree magma from below the surface of the Earth's crust is going to burst forth and bring about Armageddon by setting fire to the Earth's atmosphere.

    And to think we owe all this devastation, and destruction, driving to work, eating beef, and damn it all, it's you bastards that insist on breathing that contribute nothing to the solution and everything to the problems.

    This has been heart breaking to write but it had to be said. If all you Liberals Socialist/Communist Obama worshiping tree hugging dumb asses will just hold your breath for about any hour, all of these problems will magically go away.

    I can give you an iron clad Obama guarantee it will happen so won't you as a good Obamanite take the pledge to stop spewing that awful CO2 that comes from your exhaling. If you have trouble I suggest the use of a plastic bag placed over your head and enlist a friend to tie a cord of some kind aroung you your neck to insure a tight seal.

    It's time to do your part for Obama and help save all man kind.
    I think it's a stretch to pin this one on Bush.

    Yes they do. The sulfur dioxide they release into the atmosphere essentially blocks out sunlight for a while.

    I can't. This is important.

    This is why I love volcanoes. They're so delightfully destructive...much moreso than any other geological force. Volcanism and flood basalts have caused the vast majority of the major extinction events in Earth's history.

    .....Who...cares?

    1) The Spanish imperialized the Filipinos and treated them harshly. Along comes the U.S. in the Spanish-American War and they are freed. However, we decide to stick around and deny the Filipinos their right to self govern and the Philippino-American War ensues. Plenty of Filipinos are killed and America sticks around in its first "colonial" situation. Eventually, the Philippines is given its freedom and the U.S. leaves.

    2) During WWII, Marines invade the Philippines and frees them from the Japanes who treated them harshly. This time, the Filipinos grant America a stay as a forward base and protectorate. By the 1990s, the Filipinos demand America leave and it does so.

    3) One year after the last Marine unit leaves, a volcano erupts and they desperately request American assistance, for which we give.....and then leave.

    Now, another volcano scare on the rise? The Philippines is a basket case of wants and needs and fickle loyalties.
