I haven't messed with any comments like that. Might be an "intense debate" issue, the third party that we use for processing comments. I could have just said "my sandbox, my rules" but it didn't apply here. :) BG

Strawman has it exactly right. Fifty years of overwrought Liberal policies have delivered an uneducated, uncivilized segment of the population that has never known accountability and worse, never experienced the satisfaction of accomplishment. People of all races have had great opportunity in this Country, as evidenced by throngs of immigrants who have succeeded. As for blacks in particular, there…

I'd like to know why some comments are allowed considerable word count and others, being submitted to the same thread, and already much shorter than those posted, are blocked as being "a little too long" ? How do you account for the inconsistent 'editing' program?
AYHSMB - Mayor Moore talks garbage...again - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
No matter who or what entity decided the trash issue, the new admin is, at the very least trying to NOT hide monetary losses, like the last admin and the ones before it, Dem or Rep. Weren't we going in the hole by hundreds of thousands a year with trash, and not to mention the hydro fiasco, but I will. Aren't they at least trying? I sincerely hope all the posters hating on this admin show…

Obama, Sharpton, Holder and de Blasio are not welcome at the funerals of these men. They don't even acknowledge that their shooter killed minority officers. Anybody notice that?

Strawman: It's Just a Climate Change World.....

9 months, 1 week ago by Strawman

I’m feeling so much better knowing that 28 of this nation’s senators spent the night together hashing and re-hashing the topic of climate change.  The same collection “believers”, the same ones who have helped spend this country into third world status, the same ones who are always first to the mic to call attention to this short coming and that were in all their glory Monday night.  And what a line up!!!

Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Mark Udall, Richard Blumenthal, Chris Murphy, Bill Nelson, Dick Durbin, Elizabeth Warren, Al Franken and Charles Schumer were the headliners.  Those on the B-list included Harry Reid and Obama-wanna-be Cory Booker.   And what fun they did have!!!

According to this collection super brains—and I’m paraphrasing here---most anything that goes wrong in this world is directly attributable to climate change.  For instance:

  1. The Cubs. Has there been a longer drought than has been foisted on those from the North Side?  Gotta be Global Warming.

  2. Russia’s takeover of Crimea and Ukraine.  There has to be a shortage of clean, breathable air in that part of the world. Why else would Putin ignore veiled threats by John Kerry and Obama and do something so dangerous?

  3. The demise of CNN. Seems like pandering to those on the left while creating mass volumes of hot air and co2 have dealt the Clinton News Network a death blow.  Climate change claims yet another victim!!!

And while the members of the non-flat earth society were all toasty and warm last night, there was one thing that went un-noticed by the press; everyone in that group of 28 is a hypocrite.  Talking about climate change and demonstrating that you actually intend on doing something about it are 2 entirely different things.

Chances are, as the nations’ capitol welcomed another sunrise, every senator and every staff member made their way home thanks to something called an internal combustion engine.  They made their way down the street in a vehicle propelled by unleaded gasoline.  That same vehicle rolled quietly on tires—another product made possible by petroleum and electricity.  And of course, upon their arrival at home, they turned on lights—lights enabled by, perhaps, a coal fired electric plant.

Chances are this fine collection of public servants carve out a bigger carbon footprint in one year than you or I do in a decade.  They fly more, move from here to there in bigger vehicles, and are accompanied by a security detail, which, again, uses fuel.  But they’re royalty….remember?

I’ll take this climate change nonsense a little more seriously when I see our president park the plane, confine his travels to something closer to home, take a “staycation” instead of a vacation and act like he’s interested in actually conserving some energy.

But you and I both know the chances of that happening are about as good Susan Rice telling the truth and Lois Lerner not pleading the fifth.  Or have I been overcome by fumes???
