Of all the nonsense surrounding this idea of significant and unique in the history of man global warming, the most dangerous by far was the EPA's certification of CO2 as a pollutant. If we rational people accomplish nothing else the instant Obama leaves office, it must be to force the EPA to reverse that ridiculous and life threatening decision!

"WJF, I am NOT trying to defend Zero when I say that there IS a difference between a lie and simply being mistaken." Spot on. There are, in fact, several differences, and to ignore them is to engage in slander, which then reflects badly on the person doing it, which then changes the subject, which is something none of us want to do. Better to err on the side of caution. That said, I'm with you and WJF. I don't know Obama lies with regard to global warming, but I suspect he does, given I DO know he lied about Obamacare from evidence of what he knew as early as 2009 that has recently come to light.
Rep. Jared Polis says, "...the key problem with health care right now is that illegal immigrants aren’t included in Obamacare, and said part of the solution is to pass a bill granting them citizenship rights. " Polis? Is that a Martian name? No? What planet are you from, Jared? I swear, there really is nothing so stupid it can't be proposed as a "fix" by a liberal for the latest stupid thing liberals have just managed to implement. It's like watching lemmings for God's sake! One part of you wants to yell out, "Stop!", while the other, wiser part wants to keep mum, and just let them work it out, thereby ridding the region of lemmings. Of course the critical difference between lemmings and liberals is that when lemmings go over the cliff en mass, they're not taking the prosperity potential for my children, grand -children, and great grand-children with them. So just letting them do whatever it is that seems good to them, until they've become extinct, isn't really an option.
"Obama says the American people and the judicial system deserve better." Good, resign...and take Holder with you.
Pat Buchanan asks: "How would new restrictions and reductions on an Iranian nuclear program that has never produced an ounce of weapons-grade uranium, let alone a bomb, threaten Israel, with its hundreds of atom bombs? " Well, it's really rather simple, Pat. Bibbi publically stated, about a month ago, I believe, he "knew" Iran was only six months away from a bomb. Now why should he take your word for it they're much further away than that, and act on it? Are you in a better position to know, having no access to US intelligence, let alone Israeli intelligence, than the man who gets their briefing every morning? So, the reason Bibbi Netanyahu rejects the notion of relaxing sanctions for the next six months while geniuses like John Kerry "negotiate" with Iran on their race to the Bomb is...wait for it...he's not impressed with your pontifications on the status of Iran's nuclear program, and frankly, neither am I. Oh, and before I quit, let me point out to you Netanyahu has NEVER said he wants a war with Iran, despite your remarks to the contrary, nor does he see his course of action with regard to Iran as necessarily leading to war. He just wants them to stop enriching uranium along with a program for verification, to include dismantling their centrifuges. I assume that's what you want as well. You could at least have gotten that much right in your little diatribe.
The American poor have it so rough. Here's a little history lesson for you on the minimum income bracket required to pay income taxes. In 1944, when the standard deduction was first introduced, the minimum tax bracket was $0 -$2,000, and the first standard deduction was 10% of adjusted gross income, calculated for the taxpayer earning less than $5,000 on the 1040 tax form for 1944 (see here: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-prior/f1040--1944.pdf). You will note on page two the tax table starts taxing income at $575, which in today's dollars would be about $2,300. That year the tax rate on regular income over $200k ($800k in today's dollars) was 94% (source: http://federal-tax-rates.nationaljournal.com/l/29/1944). Everyone needs to chip in.
No, the young man died because he thought he had a right, was "entitled" to tell the owner of the property how to run his business. This is the strangest, most incoherent version of morality I think I've ever seen anyone propose. Did Regal attack the young man? No. Did they ever state or imply they thought the young man's life wasn't worth $11? No. Were the officers they called to remove him from the property ever convicted, or even charged with a crime? Apparently not. So there's no crime committed here, and no evidence whatsoever that Regal intended any harm to the young man, much less that they wanted him dead, but none of that matters to you, because you want the right to tell others how to run their businesses.
And that's how the world will eventually be saved from liberalism...one liberal at a time.
For women the position of chief officer in a company requires they make a choice between career and family. It doesn't for men. There is the difference that accounts for the difference in achievement between men and women in upper management. This isn't gender bias. It's simply the way Nature works. Children need more time with their mothers than with their fathers while they're small. That's all there is to it, but liberals have great difficulty with the way Nature works. They're always wanting to tell Mother Nature what to do, instead of her telling them. It's really weird for people who claim to be so in love with "science".
Sheryl Sandberg is leaning heavily on the debunked "disparate impact" theory that says differences in achievements between groups is compelling, prima facia evidence of discrimination. It isn't, as has been demonstrated over and over again by Thomas Sowell, the author here, Larry Elder, and many others. But it doesn't matter to liberals. They just add this to the ever growing list of inconvenient truths they ignore, and go merrily on their way.
