Is it possible for Democrats to hitch their wagon to anything real! Is there some pick pockets in the house?
'Global Warming' - 'Climate Change' For those who don't yet get it... or what the mainstream stream media never, ever communicated to the masses. What this scientist mentioned and concluded at the end of one of his speeches is that, he says, they have us outnumbered, but we have them outgunned and that is with the TRUTH! So I conclude that he is right on the money, good for Dr. Plimer. So good for our Pres. getting out of the Paris Accord! Just a major money/power grab! ....Yeah Trump/Pence Ian Rutherford Plimer is an Australian geologist, professor emeritus of earth sciences at the University of Melbourne, professor of mining geology at the University of Adelaide, and the director of multiple mineral exploration and mining companies. He has published 130 scientific papers, six books and edited the Encyclopedia of Geology. Here are his credentials: Born 12 February 1946 (age 71) Residence Australia Nationality Australian Fields Earth Science, Geology, Mining Engineering Institutions University of New England , University of Newcastle , University of Melbourne , University of Adelaide Notable awards Eureka Prize (1995, 2002),Centenary Medal(2003), Clarke Medal (2004)
Where Does the Carbon Dioxide Really Come From? Professor Ian Plimer's book in a brief summary. PLIMER: "Okay, here's the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland . Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet - all of you. Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress - it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.
I know....it's very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids "The Green Revolution" science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad,nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cent light bulbs with $10.00 light bulbs.....well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.
The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere in just four days - yes, FOUR DAYS - by that volcano in Iceland has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time - EVERY DAY.
I don't really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.
Yes, folks, Mt Pinatubo was active for over One year - think about it. Of course, I shouldn't spoil this 'touchy-feely tree-hugging' moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.
And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.
Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus 'human-caused' climate-change scenario. Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention 'Global Warming' anymore, but just 'Climate Change' - you know why? It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming bs artists got caught with their pants down.
And just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme - that whopping new tax - imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer. It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure. But, hey, .....go give the world a hug and have a nice day..

I have been a Constitutionalist for a long time. I never registered Democratic but started off an Independent. As I matured and saw things deeper and looked for more practical answers than the idealistic "people should..."; I changed to Libertarian. With examples like John MacCain, I never thought I'd become a Republican, despite become disillusioned by the Libertarian open borders platform. But when Trump declared his candidacy, I changed my party to Republican so I could vote for him in the primaries. Never regretted it! So I am registered Republican, but still identify as a Constitutionalist with conservative leanings.

For 16 years, most adult Americans went to school.
And after a moment of silence, all the students in one voice said,
"I pledge allegiance to the Flag Of the United States of America, and to the Republic, for which it stands, One nation, Under God, Indivisible For liberty and Justice for all..."
I wonder how many Americans, still take that pledge....
In the military, the oath was as follows:
"I, Do solemnly swear, that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States, and the orders of officers appointed over me....."
Has anything changed, do you still pledge alliencience, will you still take the oath? I wonder...

yes I did and still do, and the oath in 76 for life. And my youngest son after me.
