Stop Complaining

To all of those who state that "Obama is not my President" shut up or leave the country. This is the same argument/response given to those who criticized GWB. If it worked for him then it should work for Obama.

Obama is not going to take your guns away.
Obama is not going to take your bibles away.
Obama is not going to take your fatty foods away.

So keep shooting, praying, and gorging like you've been so accustomed to while crying that your "god-given" liberties are eroding faster than Antarctica.

John Edwards is a scumbag

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/wendy-button/my-story-of-john-edwardss_b_456898.html

...For thousands of Edwards' supporters, former staffers, and donors this is how we heard and digested the truth from John. We were just going about our day. While many of us manage to smile and mutter a "How about those Two Americas" and express our disgust that at least a million plus dollars were used to keep this a secret and tens of millions raised from ordinary people to prop up a lie, trust me when I say that the shame and sorrow runs deep. And not all of us would have done what Andrew Young did. Had John asked, most of us would have told John to go perform an impossible sexual act.

So how did this happen? This is politics -- American politics -- where dysfunction breeds like mold after a rainstorm. Like any story, it was a slow boil: one lie built upon another, another action causing a reaction, fear taking over the impulse to do what is right.

We put politicians where they don't belong -- on a stage and above us. We are starstruck when we should be sober about whether or not they are doing a good job. We demand perfection in their personal lives when all that should matter is if they are obeying the law and maintaining the public trust. We should use this scandal to bring all of our expectations for our leaders back to earth. Stop giving them a stage, confetti, and a theme song, and never forget that the faster they rise, the harder they fall...

Greed and stupidity got the best of him. An apology just wouldn't seem to make much of a difference.

Sarah Snake Oil

http://thinkprogress.org/2010/02/10/palin-snake-oil/

Fox News contributor Sarah Palin has claimed that studies showing polar bears are threatened by global warming are “snake oil science.” Speaking in Redding, CA, at the Sierra-Cascade Logging Conference, Palin argued that the science of climate change is really just a plot to hurt oil companies. “Those promoting polar bear listing really want to shut down oil and gas leasing in Arctic coastal waters off Alaska,” Palin argued:

We knew the bottom line . . . was ultimately to shut down a lot of our development. And it didn’t make any sense because it was based on these global warming studies that now we’re seeing (is) a bunch of snake oil science.

In reality, the 2006 Arctic Climate Impact Assessment, a “product of research by 300 scientists from northern countries, warned that the Arctic is warming at a rate much faster than the rest of the Earth.” Arctic ice is now at historically low levels. In 2008, George Bush’s Fish and Wildlife Service director Dale Hall testified that there was no significant scientific uncertainty in the endangerment posed by global warming to polar bears, based on numerous scientific studies. In contrast, when Palin petitioned to overturn the endangerment finding, she cited a paper funded by Exxon Mobil, the American Petroleum Institute, and Koch Industries. Now that’s snake oil science.

Snake Oil Science, huh? But the claim that the earth is 5000 years old is fact. It's true that it's difficult to unequivocally prove that man is causing the earth to warm but most leading climatologists will tell you that we do have an effect on the climate.

The more this woman talks the more I am embarrassed for her, her family, and those who support her.
