I feel so good now, Socialism is the answer and I can't wait for the government to come get my guns either............
With all that's currently going wrong in the world, and what you're worried about is your guns. Lest we forget too soon, the neo-cons had their chance over the past 8 years and they did one heck of a job. Just like ''Brownie'' did with FEMA.
And while we're on the subject of ''windy'' socialism, if it weren't for all of us together, we wouldn't have roads to drive to the surf on, or jetties to surf beside, or schools to educate us , or fire trucks to save our houses, or hospitals to fix us when we are broken. Yes, some of them are privatized, but lots of things we take for granted have been fostered by our collective tax dollars and socially conscious citizens. . . and if that's socialism, then I don't mind being a socialist. The ''ME'' generation is over; it's now us, not me vs. you.
And why aren't we hearing more about the disaster in Galveston Beach? http://www.bushclintoncoastalfund.org/ Send money today, like I did. Yeah, I know, I'm a real liberal sucker for a sad story, but somebody's got to care.
By the way, it's spelled ''Ritalin.'' And as with anything, if you don't like it. . . don't read it.

That's open to debate. There is actually more evidence to support Global COOLING than global warming. Fluctuations are guaranteed and the ice age and things like that prove that the earth can undergo major weather changes even without human interference. I'm not saying that it's definitely not real, just that nobody can actually prove it is not just part of a cycle. The earth goes through cycles on time scales that are way longer than our lifetime so who is to say that this isn't just another one of those cycles??? Still, cut back your pollution and waste. It has to be good for mother earth somehow.
I spent 7.5 years in a climate program, and yes, there is a lot of evidence to support human influenced climate change. And Yes, we are talking about human induced change with regards to increasing the fossil fuels in the atmosphere, and not just normal warming/cooling cycles and fluxuations. There is no debate in the fact that atmospheric fossil fuels have increased exponentially since the industrial revolution, and mostly so, in the last 50 years. The only real debate is that is whether the fossil fuel increase is leading to a global warming. The VAST majority of climate scientists agree there is a great deal of evidence to support human induced global warming. And, that there has been a marked global temperature increase in the last several decades that is directly linked to this increase in fossil fuels.
In my opinion, there is not enough focus in government to pull away from oil/gas consumption for this reason alone. It seems that over the past several years, conservatives and liberals alike can agree that we need to advance the Green movement. The earths climate requires a long term vision, not just a everything is ok now vision.
PS. I think Swellinfo should start getting into selling ridilin... there is a lot of A.D.D. with regards to staying on subject!!
