Humorous ways to convince disbelievers about global warming

1) Construct a very large ark (legal name change to Noah a plus)
2) Get Walmart to have an ark sale
3) teach animals to walk in pairs by species to a nearby dock
4) have polar bears walk into salons asking to have electrolysis to have their hair removed
5) have birds begin to construct boats instead of nests for their eggs
6) have amazon change amazon prime to include a flooding premium

The South is holding America hostage

http://www.salon.com/2013/10/13/the_south_is_holding_america_hostage/

There is another thread about South homage to civil war and the "lost cause of the confederacy"...

The Obamas are the finest family to inhabit the White House in my entire life

FDR era view of the political spectrum

A former advisor of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s, Rexford Tugwell, skillfully uses the example of a
community’s need for a new train station to illustrate the difference between liberals and radicals:
“Liberals would like to rebuild the station while the trains are running; radicals prefer to blow up the
station and forego service until the new structure is built.” One might add that conservatives would
prefer to keep the old station, being satisfied with it, while reactionaries would abandon the station
entirely since they do not approve of trains in the first place.

Bernie's staffers Brand New Congress initiative

is going to recruit tea party conservatives...to make their goals feasible.

If I were going to try to have a liberal platform, the last place I would look is in the tea party
