What should we do?

What should we do?

Recently, the Record-Bee published a missive from Michael Mann that attempted to defend the global warming scam. Professor Mann’s so-called research has been so thoroughly refuted by the scientific community that further comment by me would be redundant.

However, the letter from Norman Fleishman in the June 17 Record-Bee requires an answer.

Mr. Fleishman’s assertion that global warming is due to an expanding population’s requirement for heat is brand new, at least to me. Until now it has all been blamed on our collective use of fossil fuels for industry and transportation.

    Quit breathing I guess?

    Maybe we should stop breathing AND kill the Redwoods! Here is what we should do, ignore all the blathering idiots that still claim we are hurting the planet and fight the one’s who insist we pay more to light our homes. Inform your children (before the government can) and educate the willing. Just stay ahead of the game and KEEP READING!

    Unfortunately reading/researching/discussion/opposing views are no longer accepted by the American public. Instant gratification. Simple fact my friend.

    Yes- and vote for the status quo ! (by that I mean vote D or R, same thing)

    As Ike’s prophetic warnings come true and were never truer.It comes down to a “troop surge” in a far away desert for a “war” against an enemy that rides camels,an enemy that we created to fight off the USSR and now we must lay off teachers and cut poor peoples little weekly lifeline to fund it.

    Always enjoy deniers that never voted. They have the most complaints. As to School teachers, why not take a pay cut like everyone else and they all stay employed? Oh that’s right, they have that darn union don’t they. Forgot. They never think of consequences just simply pocketbook mentality. “What’s in it for me” mentality. Not all teachers which are vital to our economy, simply the “brain dead” unions that have no knowledge of reality.

    It’s so SIMPLE in Paul’s bizarro world. If it were thus so…

    Revolutions are usually associated with violence, but they don’t have to be. Since 1990, half the nations of Europe and Asia have gone through peaceful revolutions that replaced the former dictatorships of the once mighty Soviet Union. The apartheid regime of South Africa also came to an end without violence. The revolution to restore the sovereignty of the American people certainly need not be violent, and really should not be.

    The essential problem with the American republic today is that “the representation is a fiction” because our elections are fraudulent fiction. President Obama (nor did Bush, Clinton, old Bush, or of course Reagun) and the Congressmen running the United States do not really represent us, the American people. Our politicians are beholden to the people who put them in power, i.e. the top elite 1% (the people who own and control the electronic voting machine systems used across the United States).

    The only way to peacefully restore the stolen sovereignty to the American people is to restore integrity and transparency to our elections. The widespread use of electronic voting machines is how our republic is stolen from us every time we hold elections. The easiest and surest way to get our nation back is to return to hand-counted paper ballots in every polling place across the United States. The Constitution gives the states and counties the authority to determine the manner of voting. The citizens in every county need to be involved and present at the counting of the votes in every polling place to properly authenticate the tally. This is the absolute essential condition, the conditio sine qua non of an open and democratic election. If the people are not involved in the counting of the votes, the election is not authentic. It’s that simple. A few hours spent counting votes is a small price (but the absolute minimum required) to pay for preserving our republic.

    There is only one political party – a political MONOPOLY. It appears to have two “wings” or branches to it – Republican and Democrat – and the gullible public believes that one of the parties has their interests at heart, or is somehow or in someway “better” than the other party. It’s so superficial, it’s like “reality” TV, or televised sports. People have their team and wear their team’s colors and watch their games – sometimes even travel to major cities to spend lots of money to watch their team live.

    Talk is cheap, Reagan, Obama, et al didn’t win a majority? What are you smoking? I agree with one thing. Transparency in voting. Questions should be, “Who are you? Where do you live? Drivers license? SS Card? Identity card? Did you register before? Our records show that you don’t exist. Do you have some sort of documentation other than an electric bill? Who the hell are you when you just walked off a bus from ACORN! I agree, let’s be “Transparent” when it comes to putting your signature on the line when you vote.. It’s called accountability. Oh, the elderly cannot do it. My mother is 88 and even though has a tough time getting there VOTES!

  8. Rob N. Hood July 4, 2010 at 7:23 am #

    Did you forget to add in those numbers that DON’T vote, not to mention those that aren’t allowed to? Are they not citizens too? Where is your “majority” now??

    Wow, Paul finally agrees with a Liberal on something- for biased reasons of course, but still… !

  9. paul wenum July 4, 2010 at 11:08 pm #

    You, my friend tell us “those not allowed to?” I’m really curious to hear your left wing/ACORN, poor me stand! Give us names please. I sincerely mean it. I’ve never in all my years, absent Robert Byrd, and others against civil rights in the mid sixties that wanted to deny voting to others. awaiting your answer ASAP! Can hardly wait for your usual cut and paste answer.

  10. Rob N. Hood July 9, 2010 at 5:53 am #

    All convicted felons, are just one large group. And to ask for names of other is an Alinsky tactic. Silly.

    There have been many differeent documented and investigated (and not investigated) tactics used by the Right to supress voting by minorities. Why? Because they overwhelmingly vote Dem.

    It occurs in all major elections, up to the last one. They have gotten increasingly better at it, for the most part, and much more sophisticated. E.g.: they exactly where to supress to insure a win- so they don’t have to do blanket tactics that would be very obvious to all and cause media and law enforcement scrutiny.

    Now comes Paul’s overt and covert denial response… with more silly Alinksy style challenges.

  11. paul wenum July 9, 2010 at 11:16 pm #

    It’s factual, not “Denial response.” There is a difference. Alinsky tactics? Look at our present Administration. By the way, you never answer direct questions.

  12. Rob N. Hood July 11, 2010 at 2:57 pm #

    I always answer directly. It is you Paul who does not do so. More projection. Now for something truly interesting:

    Germany could derive all of its electricity from renewable energy sources by 2050 and become the world’s first major industrial nation to kick the fossil-fuel habit, the country’s Federal Environment Agency said today.

    The country already gets 16% of its electricity from wind, solar and other renewable sources – three times’ higher than the level it had achieved 15 years ago.

    “A complete conversion to renewable energy by 2050 is possible from a technical and ecological point of view,” said Jochen Flasbarth, president of the Federal Environment Agency.

    Germany is like driving to my cabin and back in one day. Ok, let us windmill/solar our smallest State! Wait for winter. Been to Germany many times, have you? Damn they use a lot of clean coal! Get real and use your own thoughts.

  14. Rob N. Hood July 12, 2010 at 1:38 pm #

    Maybe you should stop using your own thoughts. Just a thought.

  15. paul wenum July 12, 2010 at 8:39 pm #

    Never “Cut and Paste” do I.

  16. Rob N. Hood July 13, 2010 at 9:14 am #

    Maybe you should.

  17. paul wenum July 13, 2010 at 9:45 pm #

    Against ethics.

  18. Rob N. Hood July 17, 2010 at 9:17 am #

    What a guy. Tell me what your ethics are about war and killing in the name of God and/or country…

  19. paul wenum July 17, 2010 at 11:03 pm #

    There is a difference about defending your country, yourself, family or friends. killing for the sake of killing is a sin. Protecting yourself, country as well as others is not. Let’s put it simply. If I, or my family is ever at risk I have no problem whatsoever of pulling the trigger to protect my family, self or country. You have a problem with that? Apparently you do.

  20. Rob N. Hood July 18, 2010 at 7:24 am #

    No I don’t have a problem with that. I do have a problem with the un-ending wars that are created to allow the rich to get richer via the MIC. THAT is more than just a sin, that is an evil beyond a simple “sin.” That is an evil that you and yours for some very strange reason cannot see- even though it is happening all over the world all the time.

    And you delude yourself that it is keeping you safe and is necessary. That in itself in my opinion is a sin, and a significant character flaw.

  21. paul wenum July 18, 2010 at 10:09 pm #

    That is your opinion for which I respect even though disagree. Enough said.

  22. TerrydaBear August 8, 2010 at 8:06 pm #

    Wow, such angst!…Paul n’ Rob have VERY GOOD ‘talking points’….Rob seems to think we (Americans, Repubs, MIC, et. al…) WANT a war w/ anyone who disagrees …to, *ahem*…”Keep Our Country Free!” …how wrong can a man GET? Too many shove aside the deaths of 9/11 (Yeah, I sed it:…I DEMAND my ‘Pound of Flesh’) or castigate the US for our policies w/o regard for those who’ve actually ‘Been dere…Dun Dat’…Robbing Hood(lum)?…you’ve cast YOUR ballot….
