I live in the Dallas Fort Worth area, TEXAS! and have the bumper sticker that says "I wasn't born in Texas but I got here as fast as I could." Since N. Texas is the starting gates for Tornado Alley, I occasionally have to put up with this sort of thing:

Obama has garnered a full 50% of the electorate vote to win another term. This is the death knell for many American small businesses. Democrat voters, it is now your responsibility to ensure your vote for Obama does not kill Chessgames.com.

  Colonel Mortimer: <pipi> The intelligence was knowingly poor. Cheney was a regular down at Langley coaching the analysts.

The Bush administration didn't get the evidence they deserved, they got the intelligence they wanted and then set their best speech writers, the corporate media and a hapless Colin Powell to work on it.

I publicly debunked your debunking on the Rogoff page, after which you took a sabbatical, remember?

Nov-18-14  Jim Bartle: It's possible Bush didn't know the intelligence was false, but Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Feith, etc. certainly did.

Yeah yeah. Just as accurate a comment as all your others on historical points.

Especially your comment about how American presidents are all alike. Or how Ahmadinejad never meant that Israel should actually be wiped off the map. Or any of hundreds of other highly iconoclastic and imaginative re-interpretations you've had of the world around you.

  chancho: <PP: Trust me on this, Obamacare in all its glaring hideousness is never going to get Obama's head onto another outcrop at Mt Rushmore.>

I trust you, but I don't recall saying that it would.

My point was that it was Republicans like Romney (who you probably voted for) who pushed for the idea of healthcare insurance.

<Democrats: Governance by Deceit and Fraud. Don't believe them on anything.>

Ha!

Republicans are no better. :-)

  PinnedPiece: <CM> I have deleted your repetitious debunked crap and will continue to do so. Go fill up your own forum with repetitions of those political smears, gross misinterpretations of self-serving isolated clips, and naively blind denials about intentions of Israel's enemies.

You want to post a LINK here, to your previous statements and discussions somewhere else, that's fine.

  Colonel Mortimer: <those political smears>

Quoting political officials on the record is a political smear?

Come come <pipi>, you deleted those quotes because you didn't like the implications of the evidence presented.

Your fretful censorship marks a new low in your inability to come to terms with the fact that ALL politicians lie. Not just Democrats.

  PinnedPiece: ===Insane Science===

Washington Post here trying hard to give credence to scientific theories that global warming is driving severe winter weather:

<Here's the atmospheric physics behind the idea: Warm air expands, and naturally there is much more warm air at the equator than at the poles. Thus, the atmosphere is thicker at the equator, and the jet stream's motion is driven by the decline in atmospheric thickness as one moves in a poleward direction -- in effect, its atmospheric river flows "downhill," in Francis’s words. However, if the Arctic is warming faster than the mid-latitudes, then the difference in thickness as you move in a poleward direction should decrease. And this should slow the jet stream, leading to more loops and turns -- and consequently, weather of all types getting stuck in place for longer.>

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs...

Scientists faced with actual weather. And a theory to save. If this doesn't strain your credulity, then you haven't been following all the circuitous explanations that bought and paid-for govt. research grant scientists have offered for why their models are totally unable to predict long-term trends.

And you haven't studied meteorology either.

And you are not aware of the weather cycles we have had on he earth...

How about the 1816 summer that never was?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_W...

How about that blizzard of 1888?

http://www.wunderground.com/blog/we...

What about NYC's blizzard of Jan. 1910?

http://www.weatherarchives.org/inde...

Sure enough all events caused by human-induced global warming and growing heat in the arctic.

Those and many more. Heh. Not.

What a great administration the Democrats have foisted on America.

< Another oncoming rule, which experts and analysts say is likely to be the most expensive federal regulation in all of U.S. history, could wreak havoc across the nation and crush the economy to the point that economic growth halts completely, experts said. Even Christmas lights, though, are now in the administration’s regulatory crosshairs, along with virtually everything else.>

  PinnedPiece: Anyone interested in an update from me:

I am doing well. Retired from my long-time employer and now looking for contract work. I know a hell of a lot about my field of expertise, but oftentimes there is a conceit in the younger generation of managers that things are different in the IT/TECH/online training world that requires new grads over older graybeards. New University knowledge is an illusory advantage. It is often totally misguided and based on wholly fictitious views of the real world.

You can also see this attitude in the people Obama has approved for supporting positions in the White house, and foreign office positions, and federal judgeships. But they are uneducated, inexperienced ideological idiots, imho (this includes wannabe socialists-in-charge like John Kerry btw). And they have collectively put the U.S. back into the dark ages of world leadership. We are on the verge of many possible hotspot world wars now, courtesy of the vapid idiocy of young hotshot libs in newly acquired positions of power.

The world (and hundreds of thousands of young women* and men) suffers as a result.

A sharp 4th grader could think Obama under the table.

...troublemaker probably would have read Obamacare.

Wow, the “Almighty’s” had already “accessed & blessed” the facility.

<OSHA officials said the facility was not on their "National Emphasis Plan" for inspections, because it was not a manufacturer, had no record of a major accident, and the Environmental Protection Agency did not consider it a major risk.>

When the EPA says it,
…its been said.

Everyone knows when you play God, you have to prioritize. (even Obamas taken more than 7 days)

A “Non-Major Risk” status probably allowed most of those 75,000 pages of regulations to go toward gun owners.

…keeping the Newtown kids safe and protected.

  OhioChessFan: <there is a conceit in the younger generation of managers that things are different in the IT/TECH/online training world that requires new grads over older graybeards.>

There is also the viewpoint that the new grads are cheaper, and are less knowledgable so they take longer to get a job done and ergo jack up billable hours. Win/Win. Not that the American Tech companies would do such a thing.
