    I don't hate science, nor scientists. It's the snak oil salesmen that I don't have any use for.

    If global warming wasn't a money scam, these so called scientists wouldn't be looking for a new sugar daddy.

    Of course the understanding of global warming is all about a money scam. All the industries that would have to change their ways are spending enormous sums to fool the uneducated into thinking it is somehow the real scientists who are making this supposed profit.

Just because it's a better deal for the right than the left doesn't mean the right pushed this bill through congress. Obama did, just to avoid the debt increase battle.

    So another of his ideas bites him in the buttocks but that's nothing new.

    I love it when tea partiers use one of their silly memes to defend another of their silly memes.

    I love this rightwing meme. Blaming Obama for the debt crisis the tea party occupation forces in Congress caused.

    Classic rightwing agitprop.

    So you're OK with raising taxes on the rich to make sure our scientific research gets funded? Of course you're not. You're just being dishonest.

    Understanding the theory of AGW requires that you follow the money. I don't know if the theory is right or not. Of this I am sure however. It's a popular field of study because grants and funding have been easy. Money makes media support plentiful as well. I think AGW is worthy of study just as I think most scientific study is worthwhile. Well, except $107,000 spent for the sex life of Japanese quail and 1.2 m for the breeding habits of the wood chuck.

    The issue here is money. If we didn't print it, we wouldn't have any. The fiscal practices of our government, the unnecessary bail outs, the wasted money spent on green companies whose technologies aren't ready for market, the misspent foreign aid, all of these things give rise to ideas like the sequester, which by the way is an idea that Obama supported until it was implemented. Then suddenly it became a bad idea.

    The whole thing is a crap sandwich that the government has been pushing at us long before Obama was president. It's just that Obama has refined it to a science.

    I would ask the posters who want to push this financial mismanagement of the treasure and public trust on to the Tea Party. Where have you been and wtf are you talking about?

    His idea, his deal. He thought... and that's what always gets him in trouble.

    Tea party members were elected just as Obama and they were not elected to roll over for his wasteful spending. That's why many of them got elected to begin with. He preached compromise and he got it. It just didn't work out like he thought it would. to bad for him, good for America. BTW, the rich did get their taxes increased. So no, no more Obama tax increases, for anybody. And we have plenty of scientific research still funded. You're just being dishonest if you imply otherwise.

    Oh...right! There's NO WAY that the global warming movement could be a money scam. Completely impossible...

    In 2011, your federal government will spend $10.6 million a day on climate change. Annual expenditures will be about $4 billion on global warming research—now called climate change–despite the fact that there has been no global warming since 1998, says the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), a British educational think tank.

    Let them move. The sooner we get rid of these leftist policies which stifle innovation the sooner they can come back.
