Now That Their Time Is Almost Up.....

Take a trip back in time to relive all those great moments that the Neocons took us all through. One of my favorites of course was how we should all buy duct tape to protect ourselves from the terrorists!

Romney Quits and Makes Stupidest Statement Ever

"If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror."

In other words, electing Clinton (who has been a Bush puppet on the war) or Obama would be a "surrender to terror". What a lunatic! Good riddance!!

Oh, and now that he won't be needing his sons to help him campaign, maybe they can go enlist so they can help fight Bush's war that Mitt is so fond of!!

Tree Canopy Height from 1650 to 1992

Check out my hero, Ben Franklin, opining that land cleared of forest absorbed more heat....

“By clearing America of woods,” Benjamin Franklin wrote, Americans were “Scouring our Planet…and so making this Side of our Globe reflect a brighter Light to the Eyes of the Inhabitants of Mars or Venus” (quoted in Williams, M.). However, it was not the inhabitants of Mars or Venus that were likely to be affected by the newly bright land, the prescient weatherman noted, it was the very Americans who were carving farms out of the forest. Franklin and other colonists agreed in 1763 that “cleared land absorbs heat and melts snow quicker,” but Franklin believed that years of observations would be necessary before anyone could make any conclusion about the effect of deforestation on local climate. He was right. In 2008, 245 years later, scientists are just beginning to understand how much land use can change the weather.

Looks Like Another One Is About To Bite The Dust

Thanks to Huckabee giving the southern Bible Belters one of their own to vote for, looks like Romney is just about finished.

This May Help Clear Things Up!

If you are a Christian, you may have been somewhat confused about the spiritual underworld and you possible future place in it. This chart should help!

Hard to Believe its Been Five Years Since This...

Need any more reasons not to vote Republican today??????

Five years ago today, Colin Powell decided to spend all of his credibility to sell George Bush's War at the United Nations. The war John McCain wants to last 100 years. A war that costs us more than $100 billion every year (and probably about $2 trillion so far) -- and will cost thousands more dead this year.
