How serious is global warming?
It depends on who you ask. To most Republicans, it's not really an issue. It's just part of the natural cycle of events. Every so many years or so, there's an anomaly. There's nothing to worry about and certainly no reason to toss money at a problem that doesn't exist but in our minds.
I'm inclined to agree with these GOP sages except...
I'm not crazy!!!
Maybe if these flat earth society members looked at this very clever and BTW,entertaining clip, they might just wake up and smell the coffee, which brewed itself today due to global warming.
With our US political system and so many views of the world its no wonder everyone's getting confused and seeing things differently. Take the shape of the world -- most think its round, some think oval, and in the case of the Tea Party, flat.
The Republicans say the Democrats refuse to negotiate or over the government shutdown. Democrats say they already compromised by accepting the sequester budget numbers.
The Republicans say Obama is trying to take their guns away. Obama has pushed for gun regulations. Seems those views are diametrically polar.
Many Republicans think the Affordable Care Act is taking our health care into the world of socialized medicine. It's going to cause our country to go bankrupt. Democrats point out that not one country with socialized medicine has gone bankrupt over healthcare.
So, no matter how clearly things seem to one group of people, they seem diametrically opposed to others. Who's right and who's wrong? The answer is perspective.
Here's a quick fun perspective on our world -- called 42 Amazing Maps. It's entertaining and enlightening. You'll find different ways of looking at the same thing -- and yes, it even deals with those who think the world if flat. See GOP, this video's creators consider even the most narrow-minded, creationist ways of thinking to allow everyone to make up their own minds, not refute science, but to see it in maps.
I love being surprise when I read an article, watch a movie, enjoy a book or catch a short news feed. When my expectations are toyed with and someone does the unexpected, I find it most entertaining – or even more, enlightening.
Australia's prime minister, Kevin Rudd, is a devout Christian. Recently he addressed a gathering of constituents and was attacked for his "evolving stand" on homosexuality and same sex marriage. What he does in this short clip is certainly not what I expected – and I think it’s worth the few minutes to see the PM tackle tough questioning from a Christian pastor, Matt Prator. PM Rudd walks through the land-mined filled battlefield of this bible-quoting radio host, turning the tables and then steamrolls right over him on his way to the promised land.
I'm smiling like crazy. Take that haters!
FORT BRAGG, N.C., Jan. 25 (UPI) -- A woman who is married to a female Army officer has been named Fort Bragg, N.C., spouse of the year even though an officers' spouse club refused her membership.
Ashley Broadway, who is married to Lt. Col. Heather Mack of the 1st Theater Sustainment Command, was chosen to represent Fort Bragg in a competition next month to determine the Army spouse of the year -- with the winner representing the branch in the 2013 Armed Forces Insurance Military Spouse of the Year competition, The Fayetteville (N.C.) Observer reported Friday.
The award is presented annually by Military Spouse magazine.
Georgia Republican Rep. Paul Broun is running unopposed by any Democrat in the coming election. He recently gave a supposedly off-the-record speech at a sportsman's banquet at Liberty Baptist Church about his religious beliefs.
This is the same Paul Broun who didn't appear to object to a town hall question, “Who’s going to shoot Obama?” (but later said he "regretted" it) and compared President Obama to Hitler.
Broun is also medical doctor who refers to himself as a "scientist." Here's what Paul Broun, M.D. said at the banquet:
"God's word is true," Broun said, according to a video posted on the church's website. "I've come to understand that. All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and Big Bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of hell. And it's lies to try to keep me and all the folks who are taught that from understanding that they need a savior."
Broun also said that he believes the Earth is about 9,000 years old and that it was made in six days. Those beliefs are held by fundamentalist Christians who believe the creation accounts in the Bible are literally true.
As you can see in the video, he went on to say:
"As your Congressman, I hold the Holy Bible as being the major directions to me of how I vote in Washington DC. and I'll continue to do that."
He threw this out there, too:
"This is not about politics."
Right. Got it. Next.
He also says he "knows Jesus personally." Name dropper.
Ironically, he's on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology.
Who elects these people?
