Between the recent “deal” with China, reports of Obama taking climate action via executive fiat, and the debate over keystone, global warming has been over the mainstream media recently. But instead of debating whether or not the global warming hypotheses is a valid threat to the Earth, the media starts with the premise that the theory is real and anybody who contests global warming is the equivalent of people who don’t believe the holocaust actually happened, they are called deniers.
The “LA Times” refuses to print letters that disagree with global warming, CNN openly mocks them on air, the NY Times ran a cartoon suggesting climate change skeptics should be stabbed to death, and MSNBC and CBS only interview climate change believers on their programs.

Science displays at Wisconsin State Parks will tell you that glaciers covered our landscape, ending just 12,000 years ago.
This means that ice, up to a MILE-THICK, covered this state, and carved out features like the Kettle Moraine. A six-inch snowfall like we get now and then in winter is not what caused these earth changes.
Question: What did the Indians do back then to cause the ice to melt away? Or did they just happen to be the first settlers after the ice melted away? Melted then, by what?
It is possible for conservatives to take back a city from liberal/progressive management. To do that means being educated, dedicated, motivated and activated.
Motivation is defined as ”motive, action—a daily progression toward worthwhile predetermined goals.”
Conservatives in Huntington Beach had become complacent and allowed the Left to take over their city. This article is about how conservatives took back their city—not by shouting, suing or making a ruckus. But by creating a plan, implementing the elements and being persistent. I urge EVERY conservative activist to forward this to their friends. Sit down and study the plan—this will work in your city. Follow it and you will have responsible city leadership, not union/Obama type councils.

Asserting that young U.S. schoolchildren may not be “comfortable” solving a simple addition problem such as 9+6, a Common Core math teacher is providing a minute-long, abstract explanation of how kids can add an extra step to avoid the number problem.
Thursday on Fox News’ “The Five,” host Greg Gutfeld shared a “Homework Helper” video in which the teacher, Ilene Ryan, states, “Our young learners might not be altogether comfortable thinking about what 9+6 is. They are quite comfortable thinking about their friend, 10. Ten is emphasized in our young grades as we’re working in a base 10 system. So if we can partner nine to a number and anchor 10, we can help our students see what 9+6 is.”
The teacher then proceeds to “decompose” the six, explaining that the number is “made up of parts,” including one and five. She then “anchors” the nine to the one to make 10 and adds 10+5 to get 15.
“Partner, anchor, decompose?” Gutfeld asked. “That’s not math. That’s ‘The Silence of the Lambs!’”

Time magazine has a cover story out that’s causing a fair amount of outrage, but for all the wrong reasons. The story is headlined, “Rotten Apples: It’s nearly impossible to fire a bad teacher. Some tech millionaires may have found a way to change that.” Since then, some 70,000 people signed an online petition calling for a public apology over Time’s supposed smearing of teachers. Time has sensibly invited a series of responses to the piece on its website.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said this morning that it’s taking a “sophisticated operation” in Wisconsin to try to push Gov. Scott Walker to re-election.
The latest Real Clear Politics polling average has the race a dead heat, with Walker just 0.2 points ahead of Democratic candidate Mary Burke.
“I think he’s doing well,” Priebus told MSNBC, adding that he thinks Walker will win. “And it’s really a matter of the ground game there.”
“I really think that Scott’s doing great. Here’s the issue with Wisconsin. I think you understand. There’s about 4 percent that are undecided total,” he continued. “It’s like polling that you’ve never seen anywhere in the country. And the other issue is you have both parties in Wisconsin that are about the two best parties in the country as far as turnout.”
“And, you know, that’s why you’re seeing Scott Walker right now on about a 30-city bus tour firing up the base and getting people out to vote.”

. . . but not greed to want to take somebody else’s money.”

Americans are living in Panic City over Ebola thanks to the now-lethal incompetence of Obola Obama.
He has allowed his fascist political ideology to become homicidally criminal. He refuses to close our southern border from illegal invasion causing epidemics and to bar entry to anyone from Ebola-stricken countries as that would be the failure of his Amnesty goal of millions of new Democrat voters.

Thomas Peterffy grew up in socialist Hungary. Despite the fact that he could not speak English when he immigrated to the United States in 1956, Thomas fulfilled the American dream. With hard work and dedication, he started a business that today employs thousands of people. In the 1970s, Thomas bought a seat on the American Stock Exchange. He played a key role in developing the electronic trading of securities and is the founder of Interactive Brokers, an online discount brokerage firm with offices all over the world.
Long owning the default position, the pure, tolerant Democrats easily assume a morally superior attitude while labeling those who differ from their point of view as morally deficient, quickly dousing dissenters with the 2008-2012 election buzz word–racist.
Uh, uh; I know better and so do you and so does Charlie Martin of PJ Tatler, factually exposing the Democrats as the real racists. Long term, pervasive racists at that, but no surprise there.
A few examples:
* It was Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Democrat, who founded the Ku Klux Klan.
* Woodrow Wilson segregated Federal Buildings and jobs after 50 years of integration under largely Republican administrations.
* It was the Democrat Party in the South that instituted Jim Crow Laws.
* It was the Democrat Party in the South that instituted “separate but equal”.
* It was the Democrat Party in the South that supported the Ku Klux Klan.

Economists, Military Strategists and Others Warned Us … Long Ago
We’ve known for 4,000 years that debts need to be periodically written down, or the entire economy will collapse. And see this.
We’ve known for 2,500 years that prolonged war bankrupts an economy.
We’ve known for 1,900 years that rampant inequality destroys societies.
We’ve known for thousands of years that debasing currencies leads to economic collapse.
We’ve known for hundreds of years that the failure to punish financial fraud destroys economies, as it destroys all trust in the financial system.
We’ve known for hundreds of years that monopolies and the political influence which accompanies too much power in too few hands is dangerous for free markets.
