    Of course. Naturally all our girls wear full burkas when they aren't having wild, drunken sex parties.

    Are you sure you're an independent? You sound like one of those who would be included in a tea-party fringe group, that people use to stereotype the entire movement.

    I am basically conservative but I don’t march lockstep with any movement so I call myself independent. I break with mainstream conservatives on social issues mostly, gay marriage, legalized pot, gambling, prostitution, abortion, stuff like that. As for liberal indoctrination in higher education I will give you an example. My nephew was required to write a paper on HOW manmade global warming is affecting planet not IF it even exist. He defied the order and wrote his paper on why global warming theory is on shaky ground. His professor threw a tantrum, shouted and screamed and got all red in the face. He tore the paper up and ridiculed my nephew in front of entire class. My nephew ROCKS, he refuses to be herded like a sheep. My brothers done a fine job raising the kid.

    Re: My age is

    Had my last birthday of my 40s last month. I still feel myself to be a teenager, except when I tune into a modern pop music radio station or start a third set of tennis. Re: the debate about becoming more conservtive as you get older, I've never understood it. I began a screaming leftie, moved towards the centre and then moved back out left - further left, in fact - as I progressed through my 40s.

    There is no question that releasing previously sequestered CO2 can result in a runaway greenhouse effect; its a net increase of CO2. The question is in quantifying that effect. If your nephew was a reasonable person, he would have argued that the effects are so minute, along with various other events, that they are essentially negligible. No, your nephew is a result of the opposite extreme; complete and total rejection of a scientific fact.

    If that's really how the professor acted, it was a serious overreaction, but I suspect some part of that story might be getting slightly exaggerated. As for the assignment, the existence of global warming doesn't change based on your political affiliation.

    Maybe that's why you still feel like a teenager. Something to think about: Does liberalism keep people "young?" or alternatively, does it keep people from maturing?
