    Here are some more quotes regarding socialism in schools:
    "You can’t make socialists out of individualists – children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society which is coming, where every one is interdependent."

    - John Dewey 1930s (He was born in 1899).

    More about him:

    "The education of all children, from the moment that they can get along without a mother's care, shall be in state institutions at state expense."

    – Karl Marx, The Communist Manifesto

    "Education for international understanding involves the use of education as a force for conditioning the will of the people."

    - National Education Association (NEA), Education for International Understanding in American Schools, page 33 (1948)

    "Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round".

    –Adolf Hitler, from his book “Mein Kampf” page 376

    We "can do" many things, but those things may, or may not work - and most will most certainly NOT have any worthwhile result on global warming. Almost ALL that the liberals want to do about global warming only destroys the US economy.

    I agree, none of them mention thermo voltaic cells out on market and how much more efficient they are than photo voltaic. No mention about successful experiments in nuclear waste (specifically reducing the half-life) reduction in Germany or in California (super-collider experiment).

    My favorite is the mentioning of how much C02 is emitted by man, but not what percentage it is of the atmosphere (about 0.0005%). Yet, "solar variance" is completely ignored because it would hurt their agenda.

    Yup, now that they'll be using lights with mercury in them, they will soon push for a recycling program (so more combustion engines to haul them around and more buildings using electricity). Can I claim I have an addiction to incandescent bulbs? A treatment center for addicts is next.

    More signs of the stupidity of liberalism, socialism, fascism (private companies with state dictated rules).

    Leftist politicians and many "green coats" push fluorescent lamps, but only have barely enough intelligence to flip on/off the switch.

    What about the higher costs?
    What about choice?
    What about the poor choice they are in cold weather?
    What about all the %$#^@ mercury with billions of bulbs?
    There are low-mercury lamps and still no mercury-free, but they cost a LOT more. Also, don't forget that even though fluorescent lights have been used since before WWII, you will have idiots scared because they "didn't know they were polluting". Remember that these bulbs require special handling and recycling (thus more people driving around and transporting these bulbs in combustion engines and using more electricity for their compounds).

    So in the big picture we'll end up using less intiial electricity, but spend a lot of it in regulations, mercury clean-up, and energy used to do this (especially when we get charged "mercury bulb deposit" taxes)! Thanks to the government educated enviro"mental" idiots!!!!!!! The money isn't saved... it's redistributed!

    This socialist liberalism makes my head hurt. They hate capitalism and thinking, otherwise they'd mention LEDs and other non-toxic, high efficiency lighting methods under way to replace what we currently use.

    He is pointing out that if you have a problem, leadership requires trying to solve the problem. algore's solution might be to put us back in the stone age.

    This is not the role of government.

    Lose the lobbyists, lose any business tax, and deregulate, then you'll see faster results. Large corporations don't take the same level of risks that smaller companies do. But the larger companies can afford to keep up with regulations. Oh no, my Libertarian side is showing.... and I don't think Rudy Giuliani has one. But there's still a year and a half to go.

    While it may be cute to deride the Global Warming crowd because of the snow and cold that we are experiencing, it just descends to their level.

    I slightly disagree. Calling them a "Nazi", "racist", "sexist", "homophobic", "specist", "Islamophobic", "ant-social". "hate-filled", "warmongerer", "polluter", "animal-hater", "greedy", and of course "neocon" would be descending to their level.

    Mocking them in an absurd fashion can be fun, and sometimes it can draw them out for factual debate.

    Global warming refers to an average in a distribution that is likely to exhibit greater variance toward extremes, too.

    Please state sources for that greater "variance" claim. Is it:

    Man caused
    El Niño/La Niña
    Milankovitch cycles
    Variations in any of the Hadley/Ferrel/Polar cells
    Sun spot activity like the Maunder Minimum
    Maybe another Mount Tambora.

    BTW, it's global average temperature.

    Global warming is what the sun does to the earth. Stand in front of a fire and you have mammal warming.
    The extremes should be taken with a grain of salt. The records aren't as reliable before 1850, but they still pale in comparison to today's equipment. 1850 had 1.2 billion people. Less dispersion and less equipment.
    Thermometers were manual back then and required someone to monitor it. Now we can do that remotely and mark the lowest temperature. There are also far more scientific minded people to record data.

    FYI the temperature increase in the last Century (or Millennium) is an ESTIMATE:

    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concludes:

    "The best estimate of global surface temperature change is a 0.6 °C increase since the late 19th century with a 95% confidence interval of 0.4 to 0.8 °C"

    I'm sure the sight of Hillary's thighs rubbing together until they met her knees would lose her a couple of percentage points, but it would "beef" up her support of the Rosie O'Donnell bull section of the electorate, as well as the millions of American Women with the same affliction.

    So my analysis is this, Hillary Clinton in a bikini is worth roughly a 1.5 percentage point bump in the polls, so bring it on Hillary, we could use a 1000 post comedy thread.

    I'm betting it would hurt her more, because she'd lose the feminazis and have less women admire her (Rosie does not qualify as a woman).

    I agree with you. Though I consider A. Pole to be using an apples and oranges comparison.

    If I give bear a liter of solid butter and a liter of solid gold, we all know the bear will eat the butter. I do the same with a human and tell them only one can be chosen, the gold is taken. Apples and oranges....

    What I especially like is your concise and to the point message versus A. Pole just using religious dogma of a man that was against what this country is supposed to stand for.

    It's not a simple world afterall.

    We can't get a decent weather forecast more than a few days with only a few thousand cubic miles of atmosphere, yet these "experts" can predict a century of temperatures for a few hundred BILLION cubic miles of atmosphere.

    Though I love the inconsistency of this leftist propaganda. The extremely small amount of carbon dioxide produced by man is supposed to matter (with average at 0.04% in the atmosphere already).
    Atmospheric mass is estimated at 5,000 trillion tons with man's output at 25 billion tons (it's from 20-25 billion or more per year depending on who you ask).

    2.5x10^10 divided by 5.0x10^15 = 0.000005 or 0.0005%

    That's like a thimble of coffee being dumped in an Olympic-sized swimming pool getting you in trouble while three little kids pee in the shallow end.

    Solar Constant: 1.740×10^17 W (varies .1% which is 1.74x10^14 W or more than 10 times the estimated world energy consumption [which is estimated at 1.5x10^13 W])

    How is it possible that human CO2 emissions are causing the effect while ignoring the solar variation, which is a VERY LARGE number?

    But, when one wants to be a snake oil salesman, the last thing needed is consistency. Consistency is required if you want to truly be a scientist.

    It would appear that the UN IPCC is depending on people not curious enough to want to read and do their own research, headlines in the complicit media is much easier to digest.

    Thinking tends to be a taboo in the eyes of the UN (192 members and less than half are even considered free nations).

    I'm still finding difficulty in how the Solar Constant (misnomer) is measured since the atmosphere is not constant in size (gas laws). Looks like the Solar Constant varies too much. That's almost funny.

    OK Folks, let's deal with THE SCIENCE, not the politics.
    1) Is it an established scientific fact that we have Global Warming today ?

    Hmmmm... I guess that depends on the context. Today we have global warming... tonight, we have global cooling....

    Overall I say yes, but only in the context that the globe gets warmed by the sun. The earth is not a closed system, so the sun, distance, angles, atmosphere all play a role in our temperature.

    My own observations regard "Global Warming" as a buzzword used to grab your attention. Much like the plethora of urban legends and myths one will get in e-mails. People trying to SELL you something use buzzwords to cover for a lack of the ability to use facts and reason. Emotions and excitement can cause one not to think.

    2) Is it an established scientific fact that Man Made Emissions Play A Significant Role in Global Warming?

    Yes, if you ask Al Gore. He makes slimy car salesmen look like priests on Sunday.

    NO if you follow this information:
    The average mass of the atmosphere is about 5,000 trillion metric tons. According to the National Center for Atmospheric Research and NASA.
    The NASA link is down lower.
    Human caused emissions are estimated at: 25,028 million metric tons. (IE: 25 Billion, but I still can't find scientific methods on how this is measured instead of the estimated numbers posted.)

    25,000,000,000 divided by 5,000,000,000,000,000,000 = 0.000000005 or 0.0000005%

    For atmospheric conditions:
    Nitrogen is 78%
    Oxygen 21%)
    Argon .9%)
    Carbon Dioxide 0.036-0.038% (depends on height of atmosphere measurements)

    This article puts a twist on volume output:

    Global Warming is buzzword for socialists and anti-capitalists intent on destroying the successful people and countries by manipulating the dumb masses. But that is MY opinion....

    This is not true. You are the one who insults people.
    Tell me the insults I have presented.

    Saying that popular culture has no effect is ludicrous.
    I did not say that.

    If it did not why is advertising such a big industry. Was it not Chesterton who said literature is luxury fiction a necessity.
    Chesterson said it, but fiction is common place in advertising and pop culture. Advertising wants you to buy it because of how you feel and how the product will make you feel. Is conservatism going to make one "feel" better? Conservatives and Libertarians think far more than Liberals do. Sending a message of conservative values through the emotions of pop culture does not look like a viable solution.

    Did not Aristotle say something about simplicity in addressing mass audiences.
    You mean this?
    "Maxims," Aristotle noted, "make one great contribution to speeches because of the uncultivated mind of the audience; for people are pleased if someone in a general observation hits upon opinions that they themselves have about a particular instance" (Aristotle, 186).
    Which is a reason why telling people about their pocket book and how Conservatism/Libertarianism methods will fill up the pocket book is the method I prefer.

    If you do not understand the correlation between popular culture, popular opinion, and law then there ain't much I can do to help you pal
    Let's see... how many dictators and related monsters used pop culture to get what they want... Adolf Hitler (don't forget how proud he was to get guns outlawed), Saddam Hussein (so many people name their kids Saddam), Kings, Queens, Emperors, Clintons, etc.

    A last thought. It's called pop culture, as in popular culture. How do you or Tremoglie propose to get messages about being responsible and self reliant to the people under 25 years old or so? Easier said than done. It's not popular to get good grades, prepare yourself for good jobs, being punctual, working hard, being respectful to others, controlling your inhibitions, and acting responsibly. How do you battle that which is promoted and glorified in popular culture, Miami Vice? How?

    Elitism does little to progress technology. It falls into the same problems that many corporations have: Ivory tower syndrome. The syndrome is usually when creativity of ideas is only permitted by the chosen, who then send it to the masses and rarely ever work on the same level as a user. Examples are car makers; try getting an engineer or executive to fix an engine part like a mechanic might.

    I wonder if the same is affecting open source. Do these elitists ever play low man on the totem pole and spend a month or two with the users of their product?

    Personally I'll stick with what Tremoglie says and you can go live in your own little world with its high road and principles. Just remember your principles when you ask someone to take care of you when you are sick or fix your plumbing or clean your streets for you or collect your trash you better make sure that they only listen to Christian music or Country music. Because more than likely they listen to Elton John or Blackeyed Peas.

    Well, nice character attack, no facts, just knee-jerk attacks. It's Black Eyed Peas.

    You didn't even bother to check my profile. I'm an Ayn Rand objectivist. I refuse to listen to Christian music (a tendency with atheists/non-believers like myself). And I like some country music, though not when it's preachy or depressing. Rock, Jazz, Classical, some Rap, Alternative, Punk, Electronica, Trance, and most of the musical genre work for me.

    What on earth does being sick, hiring a plumber, street cleaning, garbage collecting have to do with the corruption of most African countries?

    Regarding principles, I will go to a doctors, plumbers, street cleaners, and garbage collectors that will: diagnose and cure, repair the plumbing, clean the streets, and collect and dispose refuse in a lawful manner, respectively. Why? Because those that have principles actually do their jobs!

    Miami Vice, try a dictionary next time. Principles are not a Christian (or any religion) owned phrase. Neither are ethics, morals, honesty, or integrity.

On Monday July 4, I returned to that same location – along with about a half a million people - to listen to a concert by Elton John, Bryan Adams, and the Philly Pops culminating with a fantastic fireworks display.

    Concerts that were free so that pressure could be put on the U.S. government to send more taxpayer money into the corrupt continent of Africa so that murderous dictators can maintain their death grip. Glad he enjoyed it. Nice display of principles.

    Pop culture is mostly comprised of non-thinking emotional nitwits that have no real solutions or values. That makes it the opposite of free thinking. Rather than take the lower road of pop-culture, increase the knowledge.

    The low road is pop culture TV (MTV, NBC, ABC, BET, etc.) and useless. The high road deals with education. Not college or high school, but with paid apprenticeships. Set up a business that puts people through a job that will allow them to earn more money and experience.

    Example: 10 companies decide to have their more redundant jobs pooled/contracted to a "school". The adult students would work the job part time and study the rest of the time. With the business involved, they can get better employees, dictate what education is needed and spend less time and money on the interview process and retraining.

    The difference between the two roads is one wants money and gets you mad and wanting government solutions. The other affects your brain, earns you more money and uses individualistic solutions.

    Young people like money, so show them that thinking makes more money. Some won't like it at first, but after a while, they learn how to make it and who wants to take it.

    Liberalism is successful at manipulation of emotions and government based solutions (pop-culture, colleges, government schools, visual media). They have and will always fail at thinking and individual solutions (businesses, creativity, fact based education, any cure or invention in history).

    This garbage concert event benefits the singers, the recording industry, and a bunch of tyrannical governments in Africa. I'm sure the "smarter than you" (so they say) singers will talk about how many people and children die, yet not even know the governments that created the problem.

    Gee wiz, I'm just not smart enough to understand the wisdom of the singers. I always thought that entrepreneurs and freedom made things better. Apparently hand outs work better. It worked before in..... ummm....

    Is it hard to write allah in Arabic on a bullet?

    How about a very large megaphone with an Arab man saying that allah has run out of virgins for his followers. Only Rosie O'Donnell, Barbara Streisand, etc. Sorry, no goat substitution either.

    I love this stuff (about as much as I love moldy bread). Global warming can be predicted.... yet even a 3 day forecast for one city is not concrete, let alone a 10 day forecast. Hey look, it's Captain Contradiction!

    Let's see earth's diameter is 7926 miles in diameter with a volume of 260,711,882,675 cubic miles. The atmosphere is 310-620 miles with a volume of 64,943,074,779 -142,500,660,120 CUBIC MILES!

    The couple of thousand cubic miles over a city cannot be predicted several days in advanced due to so many variables, yet some "scientists" say they can predict global warming with BILLIONS of CUBIC MILES with countless variables. The global warmers are lying parasitic intellectuals that are a waste of clean air.

    Attention liberals, if you wish to maintain your argument, don't use any facts or figures. Validated facts will contradict you. If they are from a global warming person, their study will either lack scientific method or be based on "what if" scenarios. Emotions won't work on me, just look at my typically long posts. I don't feel bad about people having to read it. I prefer to present data and let a person THINK for themselves.

    >Do you fully understand that it is LIBERALS who are primarily responsible for the crappy schools we have? Schools are spending nearly THREE TIMES as much per student (inflation adjusted) as we did 40 years ago, yet the people coming out of them are dumber than ever.<

    Sadly, I cannot remember the source, but I had read that a 4 year degree today was equivalent to a high school diploma in 1952. I do know that a teacher I had 11 years ago said that the kids leaving my alma mater are getting dumber. When a teacher acknowledges how dumber the high school graduates are, it's scary.

    Even though I know many don't like him, I invoke Neal Boortz as to how I noticed the problem of having government giving knowledge to kids. The Founding Fathers were trying to limit government power. Now we have government teaching us. Like the movie "A Bug's Life", the ants do know they outnumber and out-power the grasshoppers. As soon as they have that knowledge, the oppression ends. Same with schools, private and home schooling techniques allow people to gain MORE knowledge. Would SCOTUS be likely to pass the tyrannical decisions before the 1950s. History says hell no, you are outta there!

    When are these incompetent, negligent buffoons running our airports going to wake up?

    Is this a trick question?

    Asking when government parasites aren't going to be parasites? Only when the host is dead or rids itself of the parasites.

    My admiration to you for your ability to think and reason at a high level, though. It is still too rare these days.

    Sorry about that, but I was being sarcastic. My mom is a county Assessor. She and others in my state always go below market value (at least 10% or lower). With a rotation of several years before reappraising (unless something comes up), it usually results in less property taxes and less problems.

    Unfortunately, this ruling means that since the government dictates prices, it may go with the old appraisals by the county instead of market value. That's a lot of money to be ripping someone off. In some businesses it 7 figures. And in this county there aren't many properties above $1 million for residential or $50 million for business property.

    If burning the flag is free speech, so is my kicking the crap out of anyone who is doing it. Hey, I'm just expressing my views. What about my rights?

    Such an eloquent expression of logic..... Hulk mad, Hulk smash.

    Then no similar protesting against Nazi, Communist, Aryan, KKK, U.N., E.L.F., France, Syria, Iran, Liberals, etc with any of their symbols.

    Especially with the current SCOTUS. They would probably ban all mascots and symbolic references to any sports team, group, college, etc. to "protect" them from bad people. Next thing you know, all the holiday symbols are no longer allowed on your property. Can't celebrate Independence day because the flag could be threatened. Either we ALL have the right protest by defacing an enemies' symbol or NONE of us do. If you were an adult in 1942, what would you do if you had Nazi flag and a Japanese flag handed to you? For me, toilet paper, target practice, etc.

    It's like the gun-control crowd; "you can't have "these" guns."

    Letting anger and emotions rule is a liberal flaw. It enters their world, so let them be lonely.

So little has been done to change the methods one uses to wash clothes, it's down right strange, but fun.

    The American consumer does not take long to notice when the traditional quality of an old product plummets.

    Trust me on this; the reaction will be almost instantaneous.

    It's already been happening. As much as I don't like being in corporate controlled retail (Kroger/Fred Meyer,Home Depot, Lowe's, etc.), I have found a growing number of people don't want buy garbage anymore. Though they say they don't know where else to go.
