Global warming is definitely not happening here.

Re: August/Summer Hottest on Record

Saying there hasn't been wraming in the last 15 years(Which there hasn't) is NOT the same as saying that the earth hasn't been in a warming trend since the mini-ice age.

Boy, you have swallowed your own BS hook, line and sinker. The [more]

So looking at that, yeah I kinda gotta say it has interesting possibilities as a hedge.

Re: August/Summer Hottest on Record

Nope, You have partisan blinders on. It is clear what they are saying. And it is NOT disputing earth warming trend.

Re: Florida Fathers

That is terrible. I will never understand why some people who want to die decide that they need to take their family with them.

Referring to whether it is a man-made cause.

Re: Why Buffett and I Hate Gold

Put another way, a lot of $#!t can hit the fan and things can turn out alright, but while the fan is getting soiled, gold can look pretty good.

But it is speculation at best, not a hedge as the previous poster described it. (Or, at [more]

Re: August/Summer Hottest on Record

And you folks wonder why there are skeptics when you post nonsense like this that tries to link a hot August with global warming.

Totally with him on that since I took a small bath shorting the useless shiny metal this year, a dumb money purely macroeconomic bet that there wouldn't be such a supply of fools. Wow was I wrong.

Re: Robo-calls - 1st amendment right or....

Probably 80% of the calls we receive on our home phone are robocalls. Since we are rarely home, we rarely answer them. (Sometimes I will pick it up and fish them for information; the crooks always hang up promptly when you do that.) But I never get [more]

Re: General Dempsey and the ground war coming

Just thank O-bam-a.

Hahahaha. Yeah, because Obama is the one that removed a stable government in Iraq that was efficiently and effectively preventing this sectarian violence. We are reaping what we sowed in 2003. No doubt about it.

Re: "ISIS" -- Not "ISIL" and

It's a very popular acronym, in other words.

Don't forget ISIS, the fictional spy agency in the show Archer.

Re: GOP guts WH’s requested $$ to fight Eb

I believe the Republican stance on this is that what is really needed to to protect Americans from ebola is to secure the Mexican border. You know, to keep out the flood of ebola-infected Mexicans.

I wish I were joking.

Re: A free market is in constant correction

When the Federal Reserve steps in and uses monetary policy to stop the downside correction process, all it achieves is to defer problems to the future and make them worse.
