Philly voices at today´s
climate change rally in D.C.

Philadelphia Inquirer, by Sandy Bauers

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/17/2013 1:07:28 PM

More than 500 people headed out this morning from Southeastern Pennsylvania and central New Jersey, planning to take part in a climate change rally in Washington, D.C. I´ll be posting some of their quotes here throughout the afternoon. Meanwhile, a bit of background: Organizers are expening about 20,000 or more people to converge on Washington to voice their support for action on climate change and their opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline that would transport oil from the Tar Sands of Canada to the Gulf Coast. The demonstration comes after a week of events in which climate change figured prominently.

Just noticed - C-Span (naturally) is covering this, live.

The Canadians that are working oil sands think that our government is nuts...

If we don´t buy it from them, they are ready to build a pipeline to the Pacific Coast and ship it to the Chinese.

Re: Jim Hart, 71, retired teacher: "! figure this earth is good for about 80 years, and that’s about it."

What was he teaching? Did he not study the hundreds of doomsday predictions of the last 150 to 300 years ago? Does he not know about the earth´s 4 billion years of enormous change? That DC was underwater 25 million years ago? That it´s financially underwater today thanks to Obama supporters like Jim?

If he believes his maddness, what can a bus trip to DC do to reverse the end in 80 years? I know, I know, "We may need two bus trips to save the earth. Darryl Hannah said so."

The use of the derogatory "Tar Sands" description reveals the writer as a propagandist rather than a reporter.

What "events in which climate change figured prominently"? A meteorite? A ship with a broken engine? Senator Rubio drinking water?

Once again we suffer from the curse of the low-info voter. Since when did science need rallies? Oh yeah, when it has nothing to do with science and everything to do with control.

By the time the lo-fos figure it out, it will be too late.

G-d has a delicious sense of humor. Greeting these climate change freaks in D.C. today will be temps in the low 30´s, NNW winds at 20-30MPH, with gusts to 40 MPH. Excellent wind chill factor for an AGW soiree!

Now remember, protesters, exposed flesh freezes at ? minutes under these conditions, so don´t show your arses too much.

Even Punxsutawney Phil knows there´s climate change and logs in on it every Feb 2. His IQ is double digits above that great energy wizard, Paris Hilton, (You know, "drill baby drill"), who´s IQ is at least double digits above Daryl Hannah´s. That puts DH far into the negative numbers.

Climate change is not the greatest danger to human race. Liberals are. Got to hand it to The Gorbot. He took an obscure scientific hypothesis and turned it into one of the biggest cash cow scams in history. How many times has Balmy Prince Charlie told us we are doomed?

Ya´ gotta´ love it when the idiots get together in large masses to display their stupidity.

One just hopes, given the current intellectual prowess of the US populace - the crowds aren´t large enough to drive ´policy´.

We already have an idiot in the White House doing that, and can only hope he can´t get any more brain-dead in *his* agenda.

Got an email from the ´nonpartisan´ League of Women Voters urging folks to attend the climate change rally. Yet another example of how any organization can be taken over by the left wing - like rats taking over an unguarded granary.

Myself after years of denying it have come to realize that the science of Climate Change is sound not that I think there´s a damn thing we will do about it.

The more we deny the science the more right we prove Bobby Jindal to be. The Republicans do appear as the stupid party in this matter.

I guess they never studied the truth about the Medieval Warm Period. Crops flourished, the ´dark ages´ eased, and prosperity abounded. When the climate turned colder, 100 years of famine, plagues, and war settled in. Which do liberals prefer?

Obamas attend Easter services at
Nineteenth Street Baptist Church
Washington Post, by Staff/Pool Report    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 2:57:49 PM     Post Reply
The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 5:14:55 AM     Post Reply
California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

On Easter weekend, Diogo Morgado portraying Jesus Christ is on screens everywhere. Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
