    This is completely consistent with the model predictions for global warming. Everything predicted is coming forth, but at a much HIGHER SPEED than predicted. The desertification of California and Arizona are FAR AHEAD in the prediction of drying out.

    Yes, your cold weather and the record cold is entirely predicted in EVERY climate model.

  • "We want a shutdown, we want a shutdown, we want a shutdown..."

    "It's Obama's fault,..... it's Obama's's Obama's fault..."

    Gee. It's almost like this might just be routine political opposition to President Obama.

    Like it might even be part of the plan: Republicans went into the elections with plans to force a government shutdown by passing spending bills they knew for certain the president could not and would not sign.

    Now they moan and sigh about how they'd love to work with Obama if only he hadn't poisoned the well and forced them to ... pass spending bills they know for certain he won't sign, leading to a shutdown.

    In their version, that shutdown will be Obama's fault, because he didn't sign their bill eviscerating key functions of government. But it's been the plan all along.

  • Since Boehner will not bring up the bill passed in the Senate, Obama will act as a President. My president.

    But, predictably, the Republican response has been—pun intended—fast and furious.


    On Capitol Hill, Rep. Hal Rogers (R-CA) and Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Jeff Sessions (R-AL) are threatening to shut down the federal government rather than fund President Obama’s new immigration enforcement policies.

    Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Orrin Hatch (R-UT) among others have warned they will block the nomination of Loretta Lynch if she—or any other Obama nominee for attorney general—refuses to repudiate the president’s executive orders on immigration.

    But some Republicans in Congress and many among the GOP’s hardest of hard-liners want to go even further by impeaching the president of the United States. As Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) announced this week:

    Well impeachment is indicting in the House and that’s a possibility. But you still have to convict in the Senate and that takes a two-thirds vote. But impeachment would be a consideration, yes sir.

    That extreme reaction to President Obama’s supposed "lawless, reckless, a leap into the anti-democratic dark" is a little puzzling. After all, the Oval Office occupant Speaker John Boehner is suing for acting like "a king" has turned to executive orders much less frequently than his predecessors.

    And as Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson acknowledged, Congress has often acted after (even months or years after) to codify or modify presidential action on immigration enforcement. Presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush were no exception.
    But if the roles were reversed, we know Republicans would not be accusing the president "poisoning the well" or "burning himself" or "waving a red flag in front of a bull."

  • This moron thinks that people on Obamacare don't work. How can Wisconsin voters be so stupid?

    Defending his fellow Republican governors’ decision to block Medicaid expansion in their states, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) on Friday suggested that denying health coverage to additional low-income Americans helps more people “live the American Dream” because they won’t be “dependent on the American government.”

    Walker has recently leveled some criticism at other GOP leaders for accepting Obamacare’s optional Medicaid expansion, saying they shouldn’t necessarily trust the government to come through with the federal funds to cover the policy. During an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday, Walker was asked whether his position stemmed from an “ideological criticism,” and if he believes the handful of Republican governors implementing this provision of the health law are not “genuine conservatives.”

    The governor didn’t explicitly answer that question, pointing out that every state has different needs. But he did offer a broader criticism of the public health program.

    “Beyond that, I just ask the basic question: Why is more people on Medicaid a good thing?” he said. “I’d rather find a way, particularly for able-bodied adults without children, I’d like to find a way to get them into the workforce. I think ideologically, that’s a better approach, not just as a conservative, but as an American. Have more people live the American dream if they’re not dependent on the American government.”

    No doubt about it.

    More than a week has passed since the Democrat [sic] party was refudiated by voters in the midterm elections, and Barack Hussein Obama continues to act as though he's still president—and a dictatorial one at that!

    On Monday morning, he issued a call for the Obamacare-ization of the internets (if you like your spam, you can keep it).

    Then, on Wednesday, he made a deal with communist China to Obamacare-ify the environment (if you like your planet, you can keep it).

    And, now, he's preparing to sign an executive order that will Obamacare-izzle U.S. immigration policy, too (if you like our country, you can keep it).

    No question, Saul Alinski would be proud. Well done Obama, well done INDEED!!!

    No spin drooler. He already divided the GOP on immigration. Any government shutdown will be in he hands of the "majority" party. They cannot govern. They are already in a circular firing squad.

    By using the one thing that divides the GOP. You cannot fully understand how divided the GOP is on immigration. For this to make sense, you have to understand that the GOP is about as divided over immigration policy as any political party is over any single issue.

    There’s a general consensus that the border should be secure and that amnesty is bad, but things break into a million tiny pieces from there.

    Depending on whom you ask, “border security” can mean a host of different things, including fence-building, higher security spending, more Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, and who knows what else.

    And the word amnesty is also ambiguous: Sen. Marco Rubio, one of the Senate immigration bill’s original sponsors, means something very different when he uses that word than immigration hawk Sen. Jeff Sessions. There are Republicans who want to put the millions of undocumented immigrants in this country on track to getting citizenship, and there are Republicans who want to send everyone back to their home countries as quickly as possible and seal the border behind them.

    ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT political strategy. Well done Obama well done INDEED!!!!!

  • Sign up droolers. It is your only chance at health insurance.

    Over the past year, more than 10 million Americans have gained the financial security and peace of mind that comes with health insurance.

    More than seven million people enrolled in affordable coverage by visiting, or going to the marketplace in their state. On average, they’re paying just $82 a month for coverage. For a lot of people, that’s less than a cell phone bill or a cable bill. Insurance companies can no longer deny you coverage just because you have a preexisting condition, and they now have to cover free preventive care like checkups and mammograms.

    America, start your engines. The Affordable Care Act exchanges open today, and the White House is on it, with President Obama devoting his weekly address to urging sign-ups, explaining advantages, and telling stories from Americans who have benefited from Obamacare in the past year.

  • Wonder why the Fox News Liars haven't reported on the good news on jobs creation here:

    As Congress tries to go around President Obama to approve Canada's Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, we continue to hear about jobs, jobs, jobs.

    If members of Congress are so concerned about jobs, why in the world are they willing to bet our future on the Canadian pipeline while refusing to support crucial, overdue policies that will expand clean energy that's homegrown right here in the USA?

    Consider the numbers:

    Keystone XL will create about 35 full-time jobs and 15 temporary jobs, according to the U.S. State Department's analysis. Granted, about 1,950 construction jobs will be created, but those jobs -- while important -- disappear after the pipe goes in the ground.

    Clean energy companies, meanwhile, announced more than 18,000 jobs in more than 20 states in just the last three months alone, according to the latest report from my organization, Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2). See the full report here.

    In other words, nine times as many jobs were announced by energy efficiency, solar, wind, biofuel and other companies in the USA -- in just the last three months alone.

    As President Obama put it:

    "Understand what this project is: It is providing the ability of Canada to pump their oil, send it through our land, down to the Gulf, where it will be sold everywhere else. It doesn't have an impact on U.S. gas prices," he said.

  • The Republican plan for the next two years was continued, boring gridlock. No shutdowns, no impeachment.

    But just a week and a half after the elections, the kooks are pounding on the door.

    The cycle of events was set off by President Obama snubbing the traditional ritual of penitence at his post-midterm press conference, crediting the Republicans with merely a “good night” rather than supplying them with a brandable term like “thumpin’” or “shellacking,” and generally acting unchastened.

    He followed this up with a series of steps that displayed a desire to continue acting like the president rather than waiting quietly for his term to end: He endorsed vigorous support for net neutrality, secured a major climate agreement with China, and plans a major liberalization of immigration law through executive action.

    Further inflaming conservative suspicions is the fact that John Boehner wants very badly to pass immigration reform. (Though not badly enough to bring a bill to the House floor.)

    In a post-election meeting with Obama, Boehner reportedly pleaded for one more chance to pass a bill and even seemed to tacitly accept that Obama would act on his own if that failed.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
