    The most intelligent, beautiful, and logical discussion I have seem on the subject. Both sides are exceptionally well supported and presented, because they are both right. Pluvinergy makes both of these arguments, with an important difference; it proposes a beautiful solution.
    I hope to see a lot more of this level of video discussion. There is no reason video needs to be dumb, or manipulative and dishonest; we get fantastic level of information from body language. Thus, video can be a high speed communication medium as well as entertaining.

    I have a really good recommendation of a website I just found called Emini S&P Trading Secret, just do a search for them he should be able to find them. I recommend these guys because there course material is top-notch and their support is the best I’ve ever seen on the Internet. These guys take seriously teaching people how to trade and I’m very happy to recommend them to anyone interested in learning to trade for themselves, it really is a very lucrative business.

    Nuclear power plants do not emit any “greenhouse” gasses.

    (The greatest source of methane is termites.)

    Global warming, climate change and all the cliches are a big fraud, it is all about control.

    ITS’ TIME TO SEND THE REPUBLICAN SENATE PACKING..The Republicans have done themselves a huge disservice by not passing the unemployment extension bill in the senate. With more than 2.6 million unemployed families who had lost their benefits late last December, and have been struggling to provide shelter and food for their children, it was one of the cruelest and heartless moves for them to make. They have been at war with the poor and disadvantaged in our country, and have made it known where and to whom their allegiance lies. The republicans have been using the extension bill “hostage” for the past six months, in order to have the Koch brother’s oil pipeline deal passed in the senate. This is whom they truly represent. The republicans have shown that the average American citizen, takes a back seat to special interest groups, and wealthy lobbyist. The party which claims to represent family values, has let these millions of families left hung out to dry. These families have had to face evictions, home foreclosures, personal bankruptcy

  • Liberalism is Nonsense

    Those who preach from the altar of man-made global-warming, like Al Gore, work to confuse natural climate change with man-made global warming.
