I urge readers here to watch Dick Morris’s interview, it is very frightening for US citizens if Obama is re-elected again. Dick Morris is urging readers of his website to vote for a republican candidate for this year’s presidential election.
This is pretty much what Herr Helen Clark nearly managed to achieve here in New Zealaand .ie.
Create a critical mass of voters who are dependant upon the state. Then they cede you everlasting power.
She failed. Just.
For this reason the upcomming election in USA is the most critical, possibly of all time.
Not just for the USA but for the world.
Did you catch obama whispering when he thought he wasn’t being recorded to (whats his name, the Russian ) “After I win the next election, then I will REALY be able to help you out,” As he stroked the Russians leg.
The russian replied. “oh, great, I will convey the message to Vladamir”
Do you think the US can actually afford trillions of dollars to run such a military?
IIRC it was the fucktard bankers that ruined the economy and created this situation, maybe Obama isn’t helping with the recovery the way some would like but fair suck of the sav
Phil U, aren’t you being ashamed of not working for a living? Even doing something like flipping burger at McDonald will give you (ie, your mental state) a feeling of self-worth. You use the excuse that you are looking after a teenage son who is 16 years old. That’s not an execuse since the boy can come home from school and do whatever he’s interested in doing, till you get home from McDonald at ~ 5-15 pm (ie, after your working day). Your 16 year old son, doesn’t need to be looked after or supervised at that age. I believe that you simply use that excuse because you’re unemployable even with your Masters degree.
If i was ever stupid enough to reply to some request from the likes of a philu it would
only be to advise him,………….to fuck off……..you’re just not worth it………..in fact he is the prime example of a totally useless article.
No use to man or beast, as they say……eh………..!!!!!!!!!!!!!………..duh……………
I looked at your link. That Dick Morris chap was talking crap, sorry but it was.
OMG the US being held accountable like the rest of the world, being sick won’t be the financial ruin of you and worst of all, gun control in a gun mad country…. oh the humanity
Serious reds under the bed fear mongering in a fear obsessed country. The US used to be a great country where successive administrations strived to make the US better understood and responsive internationally but seriously went into decline under Nixon and has only got worse ever since.
Thanks for the links to Dick Morris…. and I agree with bereal that Helen Clark was on the same track here with welfare for almost the whole country.
Given that the fuckwit we have presently running (ruining) this country is barely different to Helen Clark, I would like to ask why there is NOBODY in mainstream public life here who articulates commonsense values as well as this Dick Morris? There is almost NO cogent public debate about the welfare state here, and the same applies to the economy, foreign affairs, international aid (bribery) etc etc.
Even though NZ isn’t in quite the hopeless mess that the US has got itself in, I would say that in some ways we are worse than them, because we hardly have any voices of reason and certainly no media which is prepared to present an alternative view to the bloodsucking socialist greenism which has gripped our society.
It will also be worth checking out the movie 2016 when it comes out, based on Dinesh D’Souza’s book, ‘The Roots Of Obama’s Rage’, where he postulates that the dreams of Obama are those of the anti-colonialist father – hence the title of Obama’s book, ‘Dreams From My Father’, not Dreams of my father.
So basically, D’Souza is saying that Obama wants to redistribute America’s wealth worldwide.
Traditional liberals, D’Souza explained, only want to redistribute wealth within America. Obama, he says, wants to redistribute America’s power among smaller nations throughout the world.
Why? D’Souza explained that Obama is literally trying to fulfill the title of his book, “Dreams from My Father.” Obama’s father, who was Kenyan, viewed the world from an anti-Colonial perspective. Molen says Obama now wants to use his power as the American president to rid the world of colonialism … starting with downsizing the very power of the U.S.A.
D’Souza explained the premise further:
What is this anti-colonialism? It is, in fact, the most powerful ideology in Asia, in Africa, in South America, in the past 100 years. If you want to know why there’s anti-Americanism around the world, it’s not just because of Islamic radicalism – that would help to explain it in the Middle East. It’s anti-colonialism.
The anti-colonial ideology very simply says that the world is divided into the oppressors and the oppressed. There is the West, now led by America. Then there are the poor people led by Asia, Africa, and South America. The anti-colonial ideology is that the rich countries got rich by invading, occupying, and looting the poor countries. The ideology says that to fight against all of this, you have to put a leash on the rogue elephant that is America. It also says that there are concentrations of economic power: The banks, the insurance companies, the oil companies – this is the economic wing of colonialism. And what you have to do to fight this is to use the power of the state to control it.
The movie is being made by the producer of Schindler’s List and other big budget films.
“If you take off your ideological-blinkers, Obama was just stating the obvious – that after the election, he is looking forward to making great leaps to further ridding the world of nukes. Please tell vlad. What’s the problem there? Do you know something about some gay relationship between Obama and Putin? Do tell!”
“After the election, then i will scrap our defence initiative and further unilateraly dissarm in the hope
that youse may follow suit.
Now I know that you didn’t last time, but this time I am trusting youse to be good jokers.
Bye the way, who told you that I was a poofter you little cutie ? “
What President Obama really meant to say to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev was don’t crack open the vodka until the fat lady sings ie the November elections, because ironically President Obama is negotiating with a former cold war enemy to join the US designed and financed International Missile Defence System.
Steven Crowder visits Detroit, the ‘poster boy’ city for leftist policies and government entitlement handouts and programmes (eg, the Model Cities programme). This now desolate city is what you’re left with when you rely on government dependence and unions (teachers union and auto workers union). It’s not pretty, and very sad. As Crowder says, America could end up looking like this if the policies of the current administration are all implemented.
Well if you go to his website dime ( you’ll be viewer no. 6 ) you will find the most repulsive vegetarian recipes. He obviously likes to dabble with cabbages , mung beans , artichoke hearts et al…and whats with the angry man remark? I’ll take you outside and…
just for shits and giggles. Its like going into the twlight zone. I must secretly admit , I take my hat off to the guy for establishing the site. I wouldnt know where to start.
But it pisses me off how he can choose not to work, and bludge off the rest of us…you know the rest…
Just a professor of physics at Princeton, obviously not one of those learned ‘climatologists’ and part of the famous 97% consensus group. Probably paid by ‘big oil’ or secretly funded by Heartland. Obviously not ‘peer reviewed’ by Greenpeace or other activists and therefor untrustworthy.
Just a professor at Princeton, who urged the American Physics Association to change its position on climate change – it refused to do so. Professor Happer should consider publishing a scientific paper that backs up his views, which are a bit wide of the current scientific consensus around climate change.
nasska why post your crap on somebody else’s website, safety, bravado, lack of fortitude?
I suggest you should consider beginning your own site where you can post such material to your heart’s content, and of course to your own liability.

Are you a supporter of the “resolution condemning defamation of religion” adopted by the UN and pushed by the IOC?

Hmm, just another member of the Koch funded Cato Institute who persistently trots out the same old tired sceptic arguments year after year, all of which have been discredited repeatedly by the experts. In the article you posted, the guy doesn’t seem to know what a climatic trend is (or pretends not to) and keeps harping on about atmospheric warming even though the atmosphere only holds 2% of the earth’s surface heat content.
Put it this way Andy. Would you consult a psychiatrist if you were suffering from a brain tumour?
And ask yourself this:
Why would only a few hundred of the 47,000 members of the American Physical Society sign his petition to reword their position statement on climate change?
“Would you consult a surgeon who fakes his research, tries to hide mistakes, lies and bases his operating techniques on computer models even though they don’t match the reality?”
So why do you swear by the altie websites? they really rate vsavs your last comment
Much of the rubbish found on altie websites are down right lies or the fantasy of nutjobs yet the altie community swears by it even if it is repeatedly discredited .
How else except climate models are you going to predict the future Cristal balls are an altie artifact are they not.
Fact its getting warmer 8 of the 10 warmest years have happened in the last decade.
More high temprature records have been broken in the last two decades than in any time in recorded history.
An inconvenient truth for the alties. they just denigrate the record even thought a brand new Independent one was created by Berkley That agrees with the other three. Tthat still cant be right according to the alties they read it on a blog.
Stop the jokes Other_Andy My guts hurt from laughing to much
“Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past” (2000)
“By 2010 the world will be engulfed with 50 million “climate refugees.” (2005)
“Global Warming will completely melt away the Himalayan glaciers in 25 years.”(2007)
“Over 4.5 Billion people could die from Global Warming-related causes by 2012” (2007)
We now have the ‘Compost bomb’
The ‘Compost bomb’ is latest climate change ‘tipping point’
limate change could fuel a giant ‘compost bomb’, scientists have warned, as decaying vegetation stuck under the ice or in peat bogs starts to heat up and tips the world into dangerous global warming.
Fact its getting warmer 8 of the 10 warmest years have happened in the last decade.
That’s an undisputed fact is it Griff? Or just a factoid that you saw once, like and trot out? Why are the actuals below the lowest IPCC range (the one that assumed zero Co2 emission growth)? How much of any warming is attributable to human caused factors vs natural variations in climate, ie those that have been happening for billions of years.. or more recently, since the global MWP when temps were higher than today with lower Co2? What’s the MWP all about Griff? Do you deny it happening. If yes on what basis. If no, how do you explain the temperature vs Co2 relationship?
Nah, all too hard for you Griff. Just close your eyes and trust the ‘scientists’ who will tell you and I that giving them huge sums of money will make the dire global crisis they concocted go away.
You’ll note I haven’t posted any links Griff. I have plenty of research, but it’s just not worth it for you. Any sites that carry messages that challenge your world view are dismissed out-of-hand and content authors subjected to ad hominem’s.
Adze, I’m not sure whether Khan online education will work for everyone. In teaching math, I prefer either Mathematica from Wolfram or Maple software from MapleSoft. These are the best commercial tools out there that are available for teaching math from primary school, secondary and tertiary level (even the engineering/scientific research-based industries). These tools not only explain (or show middle steps of) how the answer is calculated, but the user can type in many problems as he/she wants to be solved. The learner can grasp difficult concepts faster in this way, rather than one, two or 3 fixed videos from site like Khan academy. WHY? Because the problems are the same this year, the same next year , and beyond? This doesn’t challenge the learner/user on an interactive manner. Mathematica & Maple do.
I use Maple at home to teach primary school kids, intermediate level and senior high school students. It makes my job easier, since I only have to show the students perhaps twice or 3 times of how to solve a specific problem, then they’re on their own using Maple by typing in the problems from their textbooks. Textbook exercises for each chapter can range from 30 to over 100 problems to be solved. So, the students can try to solve the problem by hand on a workbook first (they must) because that’s how they can understand the concepts. When they get stuck or get a problem wrong when they check the answers at the back of the textbook, then they use the “Maple Tutor Assistant” (MTA). They can type the specific equation/s where they got it wrong to the MTA and they can watch it solve the problem (one line at the time) upto the answer. The good thing about Maple, is what you see on textbook is what you get on screen. I mean that the input/output is Latex (math-notation typesetting).
Here are 2 videos on using Maple for education (at any level). Video #1) is a short introduction, while video #2) is advanced.
The good thing about true interactive computer algebra system like Maple, is that it can help anyone with any capability in maths, from weak to strong students. Also it is a programming environment as well. Students who are strong can start writing programs in Maple (for anything, from physics simulation, electronic or control system simulations and algorithm developments, etc,…). Not only the student have an opportunity for accelerated learning using Maple, but also can start learning how to program without having to enroll in a computer science courses or they can learn how to program in Maple before enrolling in a software course.
I highly recommend either Maple or Mathematica for teaching. I have recommended Maple to St. Paul’s College in Ponsonby to buy a license for their math classrooms. I’m not sure whether any high-school in NZ is using either Mathematical/Maple for teaching math/physics, but I think that the Govt or MoE is spending tax $ on wrong software for schools. The MoE should evaluate these computer algebra software for possible licensing for use in our classrooms.
Cheers FF, I had a look at the video. Looks like a useful product in applied learning situations. And I see from comments it’s programmed in Java too, which is interesting from my perspective (I’m learning that at the moment).
Griff, I asked a raft of questions – from easy, to not so easy. You answered none of them, posted two questions to me along with a table of raw data. This is how you debate? I’m as interested in your analysis of the MWP as I am certain that anything I present to you on this will be dismissed out-of-hand. Prove me wrong, please.
One thing you have to give to a shithead like Griff, and to his mates.
They will never give/grow up.
A shithead like Griff will never answer a question.
Now why would that be a suprise ?
A shit head like Griff will never address a simple question.
He is not up for that.
That would never do.
But what the shithead will do is just what he has done at 10.35
Now just to save us all the time.
Imagine that i have just posted about 15 lines of figures.
And then i ask a question.
There you go you shithead.
Just proved my point.
What a dumb shithead you are.
Griff is a classic shithead.
according to main stream science Most of the warming over the last 130 years has been caused by co2. The theory was put forth before the global temperature records were collated when the temperature records were created they backed the validity of the theory. The slope of the long term graph is more relevant than the effects of short term phenomena like sun spot activity an approximately eleven year cycle and the random SOI Both of have the effect of suppressing the global temperature in the last decade.
That’s an undisputed fact is it Griff? Or just a factoid that you saw once
Its the consensus of all three temperature records that I know of unless you have another validv one the highest global temperatures as stated in the table stands
wanking watts was rebutted by berklay so his allegations are totally discredited as are the nz climate coalitions attempt to discredit NIWA
Pre human civilization is a straw man Any thing pre about 4000 bc is totally irrelevant when it comes to the impacts that will effect us now.
No temperatures were not higher during the mwp than now so your whole statement re the mwp is null http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:2000_Year_Temperature_Comparison.png

if a drong like Griff is older than 18
Then i will suck a red one.
His dad has a lot to answer for.
I am forty eight bereal so you best start sucking
Dad was a office machine salesman when the world migrated from the old mechanical adding machines and typewriters to computers I have early memories of going with dad to deliver parts for an ibm mainframe one of the first in the country back when you programmed with wire jumpers and entered data with punch cards. He aleays laughted at having to tell people that the machine he sold them five years ago could be raplaced
And yes he was an acountant by trade
In respect of the MWP, I guess the Vikings never really farmed in Greenland, and Green is Norse for ‘white and snow covered’ – right?
The wamists have lied to us, and manipulated data from day-one. This includes trying to completely erase the MWP because its existence is a mortal blow for the CAGW scam. That so many people, you included Griff, refuse to question this manifest corruption of science is a travesty.
