Here is an interview he did a year ago. I would like to show his most recent, but I can't find it.
Now read this article which insists that obesity leads to global warming.
So what do they suggest we do? Use Stalin like tactics to get people thinner?
Nevermind the fact that atheletes eat twice as much and ride in planes daily. Nevermind the politicians who ride in planes and drive around in motorcades, or the business man who has eetings between SF and New York, or the work-outaholics who eat and eat and eat, but use the gym to shed the weight using electricty to run their lifecycle, or the sales rep who flys once to twice a month... etc. No, no, no, it is the fat people... only. All this and we still don't even know whether global warming is even an issue. But the article has concluded that global warming is real and fat people are part of the problem.

"In January, the San Diego City Council adopted a one-year trial ban on alcohol at coastal parks and beaches, ending a privilege that most coastal cities in the county had eliminated years ago. "
This is commonly mentioned in any news piece regarding bans, as in the idea of drinking on the beach is such an archaic notion that it boggles the mind people could have been living that way for so long. No note is made of how nearly every ban on every beach had been strongly opposed until the city powers that be were able to wear down the opposition with constant legislation, forcing the people to petition every couple of years and then reiterate their stance through voting.
"Young adults began showing up and putting kegs of beer inside tents erected on the beach. They organized drinking games like those seen on videos of college students gone wild during spring break."
Um, yeah, I think it's safe to say that the writer here is at least 80 years old and would like you to vacate their lawn post haste.
And don't you hate it when you're playing Pacman and some dumb bitch keeps pointing at the screen and shouting "Ooh, get those cherries!?" No shit, lady. That chimp should have ripped her arm off and beat her bloody with it.
2-3 years ago when Iraq was in total chaos, left wingers were poopooing the idea that Iran was a legitimate threat despite the evidence that they were selling weapons to insurgents, leading sponsor of Hamas and Hezbollah, killing our troops and enriching uranium. Today, their tune has changed. Now THEY are saying that Iran is in fact a threat and that WE (a.k.a. Bush Administration) have been ignoring Iran and that the Iraq war has made them more powerful. Why the change of heart? I say it is because the surge is working and they know it. There is less and less to complain about everyday in Iraq and that is not good for those who want to point out the bad and blame it on Bush. So they switched gears and are now focusing in on Iran.
The surge is working, thank God. We know it and the left knows it too. I will leave you with this.
That is how I see it anyway.

This is a contentious issue and so I wont go into too much on it but I do want to point a few things.
- We discriminate against the number people a person can marry. No polygamy allowed.
- Age discrimnation. In the past, each state determined their own age limit for marriage, but I think it is now set at 18 accross the board.
- And until yesterday, 49 had gender discrimination. That is what the voters wanted.
- Now all states must honor gay marriage. Correct me if I am wrong, but if a couple is married because of "common law" then a state that doesn't practice common law is still obligated to honor that marriage. Will the same happen with gay marriage? Will gays from, lets say, Kentucky get married in Calfornia and then go back home and demand Kentucky to honor their union?
Now I know someone can come along and say "What about race discrimination? What if the voters said that it would be illegal for races to intermarry, would that be OK?" But the answer is, of course not. The 14th amendment protects us from race discrimination, but there is no amendment for gender in the same way. For example, we discriminate for military draft. Men have to register and women do not.
All in all, my point is that the supreme court had no business sticking their noses into this issue and it saddens me that it happened.
UPDATE: More to it.

You have to read everything. I found that it helped to replace the words "global warming" with the words "sharks with frickin' laser beams on their heads." It helped me make the threat seem more real.
"Experts say the data reflect not just worsening public health but better medicines for chronic conditions and more aggressive treatment by doctors. For example, more people are now taking blood pressure and cholesterol-lowering medicines because they need them, said Dr. Daniel W. Jones, president of the American Heart Association."
I ask you this, which economic group is most likely not to have insurance?
and which economic group has the most problems with obesity, cholesterol yadda yadda?
Point being, I am not surprised people are taking more pills today, but not because of health reasons.
"Obviously we were happy for the business but everyone was shocked. The carbon footprint must be enormous."

I will say this though, if this movie portrays Bush as negatively as I think it will, theaters better hand out tissues and rain coats per viewing, as well as hire themselves a giz mopper.
I hate this picture, but this is how I envision Oliver Stone's movie will play out.
And this picture sums up how the movie would go if I were to write it.
I'll say it again, those Dems can't even run their own primary, what makes them think they can run the country?
Of course as long as the Dems go around saying they will make healthcare "free", education "free", life "free", the masses will fail to notice their incompetence.

“I don't think that SDSU should have invited federal drug officials to come smear our campus and make it seem like it's a big drug land,” said Randy Hencken, outgoing president of the student group, which supports the legalization of drugs and access to treatment. “I think that we needed to address this issue in-house.”
I'm sure that SDSU never even considered such a brain-busting idea as in-house solutions! Idiot. Now, here's a professor's take, and let me prepare you, it's pure comedy gold:
“Now it's drugs,” she said. “Maybe next time it's about political dissent. . . . What happens when you have students talking about federal income tax policy, saying they're not going to pay their taxes? Are they going to bring in IRS agents?”
That's a PolySci professor, but it just as easily could have been an English teacher making that tiny leap from a multi-million dollar drug bust to a round table discussion on whether students feel like they're being overly taxed. The world will be such a nicer place once a Dem gets into office and people can once again speak freely without the fear of oppressive government burnt umber, burnt umber, burnt umber. Here's the whole article.

“Climate change will be very beneficial to society there,” Jesper Madsen, of the DMU environmental research institute in Roskilde, in mainland Denmark, said. “It will improve fishing and above all make it easier to drill for oil and gas. The US geological survey calculates that the greatest unused oil reserves on Earth are in the Greenland waters – and they are in the east, where the ice is melting fastest.”
Is it safe to say that it has gotten out of hand now?

That's some hard-hitting shit right there, but I just have to say that it's that guy's mom's own fault for getting in the way.
