Kentucky state Sen. Brandon Smith (R) claimed that man-made climate change is scientifically implausible because Mars and Earth share “exactly” the same temperature. Smith, the owner of a mining company called Mohawk Energy, argued that despite the fact that the red planet doesn’t have any coal mines, Mars and Earth share a temperature.
Science, something the right wing has never known.
Wingnuts still live on a flat earth.
Not one red cent for boarder security to stop the insanity. Put ISSI on the boarder, betcha that would stop it in a New York minute.
Obama seeks emergency immigration funds, more authority
President Barack Obama cares, the White House insisted Tuesday in asking Congress for $3.7 billion in emergency funds to better respond to the flood of immigrants illegally crossing the border into Texas.
Perry , dumber than a sack of hammers must be part of the "conspiracy" he blames on Obama
TEXAS GOV. RICK PERRY may believe that evolution is an unproven theory, doubt the scientific consensus on global warming and regard Social Security as what he called an “illegal Ponzi scheme.” But on one major issue his views are grounded in reality: the need to help promising young immigrants fulfill their potential — even if their parents brought them into the country illegally.
As governor in 2001, Mr. Perry signed legislation to grant in-state tuition discounts to youngsters educated in Texas high schools without regard to their immigration status. That bill became the model for similar measures in about a dozen states, including Maryland, that have passed their own version of what’s now known as the Dream Act. Last year alone, some 16,500 undocumented Texas youth benefited from the law "
They miss him sooooo much

" Phyllis Schlafly, who isn’t dead yet, who thinks that the gender pay gap is just fine because if women make as much money as men, they won’t be able to find husbands. I remind you that Phyllis Schlafly’s central argument against the Equal Rights Amendment was that women and men would have to use the same public restrooms."

The Anti-Feminist Female Impersonators Rise Again
Posted on May 16, 2014 by CheezWhiz
Michelle Bachmann, in her opposition to appointing a bi-partisan commission to study the feasibility of creating a women’s museum on the national mall said it would “enshrine the radical feminist movement that stands against the pro-life movement, the pro-family movement and pro-traditional marriage movement.”
How dare we pay homage to the women’s movement that gave 51% of U.S. citizens the vote and allowed idiots like Michelle Bachmann to be elected to the United States Congress. Why should we enshrine the leadership and accomplishments of individual women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Sojourner Truth, Amelia Bloomer, Alice Paul, Elizabeth Blackwell, Marie Curie, Madam C. J. Walker, Margaret Sanger, Barbara Chisholm, Sally Ride? Women who worked to abolish slavery, obtain suffrage, give women control over their own reproductive systems. Women who led the way in science, medicine, business, politics, space exploration. Women who dared to be first. Women whose lives demonstrated that females are not the weaker sex – that they can be anything and do anything.
What is Ms. Bachmann afraid of? That women might get ideas? That they might think they can change things? Bachmann’s statement, with all its “pros” is really just an anti-woman, anti-change screed. Anti-self-determination for women, anti-gay, anti-any lifestyle that doesn’t look like Father Knows Best.
And then there’s Phyllis Schlafly, who isn’t dead yet, who thinks that the gender pay gap is just fine because if women make as much money as men, they won’t be able to find husbands. I remind you that Phyllis Schlafly’s central argument against the Equal Rights Amendment was that women and men would have to use the same public restrooms. Both Schlafly and Bachmann have law degrees. Scary. Guess logic wasn’t a required subject.
Museums, if done properly, enshrine the truth of the past. A national women’s museum can and sh

The House Republican “Scandal caucus” isn’t backing down, and their defiance now threatens to hurt their party at-large.
Republican Reps. Scott DesJarlais (Tenn.), Michael Grimm (N.Y.) and now, Vance McAllister (La.) have all resisted calls to resign and are running for reelection anyway. In some cases, their defiance jeopardizes the GOP’s hold on their seats, but they’re all proving to be a stench to the party’s brand.
Their persistence provides easy fodder for Democrats grappling for a message to give them the upper hand as they pursue the improbable task of picking up 17 seats in a difficult political climate. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee already launched a standalone site outlining the GOP’s “House of Scandal” earlier this year, after the news of Grimm’s criminal indictment on 20 counts came out, and DCCC spokesman Josh Schwerin said they won’t let that message drop.
“Republican leadership promised zero tolerance but instead has taken zero action to deal with their members’ seemingly endless ethics problems,” Schwerin said in an email. “With the scandals piling up, voters can clearly see that House Republicans care more about staying in power than in governing responsibly.”
"The founder of a homeschooling empire championed by reality TV's Duggar family and Sarah Palin, Bill Gothard resigned earlier this year amid accusations that he molested dozens of women. No one, he says, was more instrumental to his now-controversial ministry than the family behind Hobby Lobby.
Mother Jones' David Corn and Molly Redden published a detailed investigation this morning showing that long before the Green family—which owns Hobby Lobby—fought to avoid covering contraception for its insured employees, it gave hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and real estate to Gothard and his controversial theocratic fundamentalist Baptist movement.
Considered by many mainstream Christians to be a cult, Gothard's Institute in Basic Life Principles has for decades advocated a cloistered, rigid conservative approach to raising children in Christ—which interested parties can learn about by paying, Scientology-style, for successive lectures, videos, seminars, and isolated boot camp-style experiences. Gothard is also associated with Quiverfull, a fringe movement championed by Jim and Michelle Duggar (of 19 Kids and Counting fame) that advocates wifely submission and mandates plentiful procreation and sees all forms of birth control as sinful—a philosophy that is not shared by most mainline Protestants. "
Gothard tells Mother Jones that his ties with Hobby Lobby's Green family have been indispensable to his work. "The secret of their success is their generosity," he said, adding: "They're friends. I see and talk to them periodically."
Bush spent most of his time with his head under the robes of the Arabs.
You losers try really hard to forget Bush.
The planet never will.
Bush is the huge Scarlett Letter 'A' on your foreheads.
Dubya's Daddy has a huge street named after him in Saudi Arabia.
Just think what hypocrite Pubbies would say if Obama did ?
