    Well Tex got Temp Suspended in this thread, and I was afraid he'd gone and done something dumb. My apologies to Tex when he returns for jumping the gun.

    Just... folks have a history of doing that round here.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It wasn't tex's grammatical style.

    I do a lot of fact-checking, as Mellie could probably tell you. That means I'm not super-informed on every issue. I barely participated in healthcare issues. My issues are teenagers, crime, gangs, race issues. As far as foreign policy, I care very little about most of the world. I'm interested in Iran and the Israeli/Palestine situation

    The rest of the time, if I read a link to a story on a blog, I always go back and read the original story it's linked to, and if possible, I look for other stories to see if it is spun differently.

    I take all crises as politically manufactured unless solid evidence suggests otherwise. That's been my position since the Reagan era, regardless of who was in the oval office.

    I don't think anyone would suggest that. That's why a lot of us read multiple sources before coming to any kind of conclusion on an issue. i worry about the people who only use one source, whether that source is the New York Times or Glenn Beck.

    And to that I say amen. I think if you have an issue that is actually IMPORTANT to you then if you look at 3-4 sources (really not that hard) then somewhere between the black and the white is the grey and thats kinda where we have to make an informed opinion and decision...and at THAT its still a guess.

    I dont even mind the Times so much as long as its balanced against the Post and maybe an AP or two.

    did you see bigbucks bernanke's message to the matriculating YOUTH of u south carolina?

    My Way News - Fed chief tells graduates: don't worry, be happy

    money can't buy you love

    even lottery winners are sad

    standards of living, suggests the sage, get old

    do you think he knows something?

    how many of these KIDS are gonna pull down paychecks this year?

    just what IS out there, y'know, for them TODAY?

    pursue YOURSELF, warns the wonk, not the DOLLAR

    avoid the RAT RACE, recommends the personification of inside power player

    find your center (it's your navel)

    don't worry, be happy

    but GET RID of your xboxes

    Some of the most unhappy people in America are also the wealthiest.

    even lottery winners are sad
    True.

    pursue YOURSELF, warns the wonk, not the DOLLAR
    I totally agree with this advice. If you do work that you love, money inevitably follows.

    avoid the RAT RACE
    Wise advice, only the rats win that one.

    don't worry, be happy
    Worry is like a rocking chair. Lots of motion but it never gets you anywhere.

    but GET RID of your xboxes
    Would probably raise our collective IQs by 10 points.
