    The truth of global warming II

    If so, show proof, not opinion. Not at all. Many times in history "scientific consensuses" has been proven wrong. My point was that just because a lot of people believe something & agree it is correct does not make it the truth. True science looks not only for repeatability, but tries to...

    Citizenship vs. Constitution

    And what do you base your determination of racism on, besides their opposition to people violating our laws & sovereignty? I suspect that you may be such a bigot that anyone you disagree with falls onto some derogatory list of yours. And what, other than your own preconceptions do you base...

    The truth of global warming II

    Your link has nothing to do with solar radiation levels. The solar energy output fluctuates on both 20 and 50 year cycles. It is never at a constant "minimum" or "maximum". You cannot provide me with a model that includes solar radiation that supports AGW because when those cycles are added to...

    The truth of global warming II

    Can any of the warmers in this thread show even one climate model being used by the AGW community that accurately takes variations in solar energy output into account in their modeling? Also, can their models account for the cooling that occurred between 1940 & 1980 when carbon levels were...

    Citizenship vs. Constitution

    Enforcement, enforcement, enforcement. If your state officials are not doing their jobs, vote them out & put in people who will. If the laws were enforced & everyone were using either US or Green Card labor, they would be competitive. They might have to charge you a little more than you are...

    Citizenship vs. Constitution

    No argument on most of that. States ARE responsible for birth registration however, & under the 10th amendment they are required to determine how this will be accomplished. Also, how about strict enforcement of current immigration law? During the 50's the Eisenhower Administration managed to...

    Citizenship vs. Constitution

    Which does not in any way make it our duty to accept them. It would be easier & less expensive yet to reduce that pressure internally by making it a felony to knowingly hire illegal aliens or to implement corporate policy that would encouraging the hiring of illegal aliens. A few CEOs facing...

    Citizenship vs. Constitution

    It has to do with the definition of the phrase "under the authority" which had a very clear & distinct meaning in American Jurisprudence at the time the amendment was written. It applied to all foreign "visitors", not just diplomats. It is still applied that way to foreign sailors, even though...

    Citizenship vs. Constitution

    I can almost agree with you Walter, all but the Dual Citizenship part. If they are granted Dual Citizenship, they will knock all the imigrantants who have been waiting in line one place when they come back at the head of the line. There are quotas, & anchor babies reduce the number of slots...

    Citizenship vs. Constitution

    That argument is a fallacy. The child would be a citizen of the mothers homeland. Just as if your mother had popped you out in Mexico, Canada or Nigeria. You would still be an American, not a Mexican, Canadian, or Nigerien. Most other western countries have stopped giving birthright citizenship...

    Could She Reach the Top in 2012? You betcha!

    Too bad that seems to be all he can do.

    Could She Reach the Top in 2012? You betcha!

    The only reason it is an issue is that when you take it away he starts sounding about as bright as Joe Biden. When he has speak publicly with out the prompter he starts to stammer & loose track of what he is supposed to be saying. And he was such a stellar student he will not release any of his...

    Could She Reach the Top in 2012? You betcha!

    I don't know. Stupid is in the eye of the beholder. They were stupid enough to fall for Obama whos only proven talent was an ability to read from a teleprompter. It will be interesting either way.

    What Precedents are available for the health insurance mandate?

    No, it didn't. If you will recall, there were originally two bills. One in the House the other in the Senate. The House bill contained things like a public option that the Senate bill lacked. After the Senate bill passed, but before the bills went to conference, Scott Brown was elected to...

    What Precedents are available for the health insurance mandate?

    IF it is a tax, then it definitely is unconstitutional. http://72.32.50.200/constitution/constitution.pdf (emphasis added) This bill originated in the Senate, not the House, & did not go through conference. The House was not even able to offer amendments. The administration should be careful...

    Teacher's Holocaust denial causes uproar

    Not really. The Romans were long gone when Arabic Muslim invaders (ancestors tot he Palestinians) arrived. The Empire had already split bu then and the area was ruled (loosely speaking)) from Constantinople. Many, but not all. A sizable remnant remained. Totally off topic. If you wish to...

    Teacher's Holocaust denial causes uproar

    Then let me rephrase to be more concise. The CONCEPT of anti-Zionism is based on hatred and is just one more branch on the tree of antisemitism. It has been perused & promoted since long before the establishment of Israel. You say you do not hate Jews. I will take you at your word on that...

    In reality, that is pretty much what they did. I never said it was a smart thing to do, it is just what they did. The went into Jordan & Egypt.

    On Anarchy, or "Voluntarily Citizenship"

    Republic_Of_Public posted this link in another thread & I thought it deserved some discussion & review on it's own. Thanks for the link R-O-P. There's No Such Thing As An Illegal Alien Mr. Stevens primes is that there can't be "Illegal Aliens" based on the anarchist theory of "Voluntary...
