Franken: The Senate needs to
talk more about climate change

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Ramsey Cox

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/23/2013 10:26:58 AM

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) suggested on Earth Day that the Senate should spend more time talking about climate change issues. “I’m here to suggest we talk more about climate change so that we can agree on taking action to address it,” Franken said Monday. “The Senate cannot afford to ignore climate change, we need to talk about it.” Franken pointed out that 98 out of 100 scientist say climate change is real and needs to be dealt with. He said people outside Washington, D.C., understand this. “Many of my other colleagues I suspect don’t talk about

Comments:
Translation: We need to figure out more ways to tax to death the American people. 98 out of 100 scientist say climate change is real?? You lie! Democrats should be forced to wear electrified ankle bracelets or collars and get shocked every time they lie. They would all die from electrical shock.

I´m willing to go with "climate shift," but I don´t think humans have anything to do with it. The last ice age covered mainly the northern part of the globe, and here in the U.S. there seems to have been a definite shift. If the shift continues, if people don´t plan ahead someday, perhaps not too far off, there will be no more corn grown in Iowa and Kansas because it will be too cold, not warm. Meanwhile it may turn out to be too warm in the southern hemisphere to grow what they now grow, yet ideal for corn. So these people need to forget about global "warming" and address the immediate problem; climate shift which can be blamed only on fickle nature.

Hey Al, I have some magic pixie dust seasoned with unicorn tears that will solve the climate change problem. Only $2 million per ton. Pocket change for you guys. A couple of tons a year spinkled on the backs of migrating birds so it will be widely spread will solve the problem.

Let me know how much you need.

Dingbat Al forgets a couple of things. One fact is that this current cooling trend right now was predicted back in the...wait for it...1970´s! Another fact ignored by liberals like dingbat Al is that over 30K real scientists signed a statement to the effect that GW is a lie. The farce that is Dingbat continues to make citizens of Minnesota look both bad and dumb, which is really sad. Minnesota is home of some really fine citizens.

Frankin is hilarious. If we don´t do something about the invasion of the Muslims, we won´t be around to do anything about so-called "global Warming" nonsense. The Muslims will dynamite the Senate first, then fence in the rubble and place all the remaining infidels there to starve to death. Just think of the Carbon that will leap into the atmosphere then, Al!

WYSIWYG, as they began to say when the first Mac was sold.
What you see is what you get. Franken is a comedian (in his own mind).
What he actually is cannot be described in terms which can be used on a thread like this.
Despicable.
There is dumb, there is dumber, and there is Al Franken.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
