    The whole Bush torture thing is pretty easy to sum up. He and his pals are all chickenhawks. They beat their chests and talk about war – knowing they never had to go fight one and never will. They don’t know fuck about combat. If they did, they’d realize that torturing our enemies gives our enemies a green light to torture OUR military. But you see, since the cowardly AWOL Bush has never, and will never actually care about the troops, that doesn’t bother him. FlipFlop McSame was against torture before he was for it. Before he decided he’d do anything to grab power, including abandoning what few principles he actually had, he even made the same argument I am making.

    The right wing is largely made up of people who talk a good game when it comes to war, but their leaders are all chickenhawks who’ve never actually GONE to war. Whether it’s that impotent, drug-addict Lush Flimbaugh who used the excuse he had a pimple on his ass to avoid Nam, that Frankenstein WHATADICK Cheney who hid from Nam with five deferments, or AWOL Bush himself who used his daddy’s power and position in Congress to get put ahead of thousands who were already in line waiting on a spot in the NG, these cowardly cunts are all hat and no cattle. If anyone on the right knew anything about REAL combat, instead of the shit they read in old “Soldier of Fortune” magazines, they’d admit torture was wrong and move on.

    The “torture” memos detail stuff that the military goes through in SERE school all the time. I was waiting for the bolt cutters to fingers, rape as punishment, disemboweling… Oh wait, that was Saddam Hussein.

    I doubt any of you girls are squeamish about the techniques. It’s a simple fact you hate everything this nation stands for because you want sooo badly to be liked by all the other kids.

    Any more comments out of you bitches and I’ll slap you. (…with fingers slightly spread. The hand makes contact with the area directly between the tip of the individual’s chin and the bottom of the corresponding earlobe.)

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    Isn’t this curious? No president can ever be successful without good intelligence. This is what Puddy kept telling NutRight about the 13 nations (including Putin in Russia) who thought Saddam had WMD. But as always NutRight is a NUT!

    If Obama and his administration full of merry tax cheats go after any of the CIA operatives who operated under these waterboarding memos, and the country is attacked because of his witchhunt, Obama is TOAST!

    Waterboarding was used by the US since 1899-1902. Oh you HA weasels didn’t know this? What? All you historical “NUTS” are ignant of history? It was used by US servicemen in Vietnam while Johnson was preznit. Oh you HA weasels didn’t know this? What? All you historical “NUTS” are ignant of history? The US Navy used this to train it’s men who would be operating covertly overseas. Oh you HA weasels didn’t know this? What?

    Torture is against the law. It is against federal law as passed by our Congress, outlawed by the Geneva Conventions we helped write and ratified, and against the UN Convention Against Torture that we ratified. Just as a side note, that makes whatever happened in “1899-1902″ totally beside the fucking point. Those events are WHY we passed laws against torture, not a reason to pursue it.

    Maybe you all want to encourage our country to become a reviled and lawless home of monstrous torturers, but patriots do not.

    Darryl and the rest of you Algore and his band of groupie KLOWNS–

    Australia Antarctic Division glaciology program head Ian Allison said sea ice losses in west Antarctica over the past 30 years had been more than offset by increases in the Ross Sea region, just one sector of east Antarctica.

    “Sea ice conditions have remained stable in Antarctica generally,” Allison said.

    Ice core drilling in the fast ice off Australia’s Davis Station in East Antarctica by the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Co-Operative Research Center shows that last year, the ice had a maximum thickness of 1.89m, its densest in 10 years.

    The jig is up. Your idiotic blathering about the world coming to an end are proven FALSE!

    Your gnorance leads you to say stupid things. One of the predictions fo the IPCC modeling is a temporarily increased cooling in Antarctica. It’s been predicted, dumbass.

    And that event along with countless other predictions comport pretty exactly with the IPCC’s climate change models, except that they appear to be happening much more rapidly than we thought.

    @9 Ian Allsion? Nice try, Mr. Klynical. You science-hating narcissists are really something else. I bet yo mama rode dinos.

    http://ipsnews.net/news.asp?idnews=45629

    A few paragraphs to reveal Mr. Klynical as a pathetic bitch. The complete article can be found at he link.

    “Although Antarctica has hitherto been believed to be the only continent to buck the global trend of warming, new findings by United States-based scientists indicate that the coldest continent is indeed hotting up in a similar way to the rest of the world.

    “The thing you hear all the time is that Antarctica is cooling and that’s not the case. If anything it’s the reverse, but it’s more complex than that. Antarctica isn’t warming at the same rate everywhere, and while some areas have been cooling for a long time the evidence shows the continent as a whole is getting warmer,” says Eric Steig, a professor of earth and space sciences at the University of Washington.

    Ian Allison, a glaciologist with the Australian Antarctic Division – part of the Australian government’s department of the environment, water, heritage and the arts – says that Antarctica, along with its polar opposite, the Arctic, are earth’s “heat sinks”.

    “They’re important because of the feedback processes that can occur,” he says, adding that the warming identified in the new research can be observed in the melting of Antarctica’s sea ice.

    “If you get warming and the sea ice melts then you lose what is a highly reflective surface. Then the dark ocean, which absorbs more sun, warms up more and more ice disappears and you get a positive feedback,” he says.

    Allison told IPS that he is not overly surprised by the findings of Steig’s team.

    While accurate information on temperature patterns in West Antarctica has been hampered by a paucity of weather stations, the adjacent “Antarctic Peninsula has been one of the areas on earth that has been warming the greatest,” he says.

    “It was always a bit strange,” adds Allison.

    The Australian scientist believes that the new findings now provide for a far more complete view of the world’s changing climate.

    The final report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), released in 2007, noted that in each continent besides Antarctica, greenhouse gas emissions stemming from human activities were the likely cause of warming.

    Allison told IPS that this “wasn’t done for Antarctica because there wasn’t sufficient data available.”

    He argues that with the new findings, Antarctic warming as a result of greenhouse gases can now also be included with the other continents.”

    It must suck to be you, Mr. Klynical.

    I am completely disillusioned to see that Mr. Cynical would misrepresent the findings set out in a scientific report to promote his own ideological and political purposes. I thought he was a man of sterling integrity; at least, that’s what he’s always told us. Instead, it appears he is simply a shill for whackjob partisan interests. I am so disheartened.

    Anything from the IPCC is suspect. They have proved time and again, that their agenda is political, not scientific.

    Come back with real data, then we can discuss why global climate change happens and what we need to do about it, if anything.

    I, for one, think bankrupting the global economy at the alter of global warming is a stupid fucking idea.

    You want to fix everything? Make nuclear fusion practical and commercially available. Energy is the root issue of the cost considerations for a whole host of problems and potential solutions.

  22. 23

    Puddybud, Have You Said Thank You Today... spews:

    Even the pinheads at PMSNBC reported on it. But as always “scientists” will discount anything else which could put holes in their “global warming” theories on ice loss.

    “We don’t believe the volcanoes had much effect on the overlying ice,” Reeves-Sohn told LiveScience, “but they seem to have had a major impact on the overlying water column.”

    The eruptions discharge large amounts of carbon dioxide, helium, trace metals and heat into the water over long distances, he said.”

    Huh? did he say large amounts of CO2 into da water? Yet “K” discounts this too as it’s only from de atmosphere not from underground magma eruptions.

    OAKLAND, Calif. — A westward dash to power electricity-hungry cities by cashing in on the desert’s most abundant resource — sunshine — is clashing with efforts to protect the tiny pupfish and desert tortoise and stinginess over the region’s rarest resource: water.

    Water is the cooling agent for what traditionally has been the most cost-efficient type of large-scale solar plants. To some solar companies answering Washington’s push for renewable energy on vast government lands, it’s also an environmental thorn. The unusual collision pits natural resources protections against President Barack Obama’s plans to produce more environmentally friendly energy.

    you’er wrong. It’s really the case that “everything that come s from delbert is ignotant and uninformed.”

    The IPPC is THE consortiium of around 200 climate scientists from all around the world whose consensus view, based both on extensive and thorough research and on the most sophisticated climate modeling currently possible, that (a) warming is occurring and that (b) it is largely human-caused, is ALSO the consensus opinion of every national acedemy of science on earth.

    It wasn’t in this thread, but rather in the tea party one, that our esteemed idiot brethren made the point time and time again that our repeated references to tea party attendees as “teabaggers” were a sign of our unreasoning liberal hatred. I just want to clarify:

    You see, you people are a joke to us. We make fun of you and then laugh about it. Maybe we’re a joke to you too, but guess what? We run Congress, most of the states and the presidency, so who’s laughing now? When your humor ever becomes relevant to anyone again, we’ll definitely let you know.

    In the meantime, we view the tea parties as big “We lost and we hate it!” parties that attracted few besides the usual band of cranks who come out every year since 1789 to say how much they hate taxes, and a few other haters from the bitter, losing, white, southern, clueless, dwindling Republican party.

    We say “teabagger” because most of you dumbasses STILL don’t know what that means, and we think that’s funny that you appropriate (formerly) gay sexual slang.

    I can’t wait to see the enterntainment you have in store for us.

Evidently, some wingnut making up shit constitutes proof in the Puddyverse. Puddy @28 doesn’t even offer links to nowhere but instead spews nonsensically about the National Geographic Society and Woods Hole as though he’s playing some winning hand.

    The links in Puddy’s comment at 18 conclude, without any cogent argument whatsoever, that volcanic eruptions that occurred some 8 to 10 years ago are causing ice to melt today.

    That’s not merely jumping to a conclusion. That’s not even leaping to a conclusion across a vast chasm of missing facts and data. That’s rhetorical pole-vaulting, Sergei Bubka style.

    But, that’s not all. At 21, Puddy posts a link to this article, which contains this paragraph:

    With news this week that polar ice is melting dramatically, underwater Arctic pyrotechnics might seem like a logical smoking gun. Scientists don’t see any significant connection, however. [emphasis added]

    Puddy doesn’t care about the elimination of not only species, he doesn’t care about the destruction of entire ecosystems, even the entire planet. Puddy’s perverse version of Christian faith seems to give him the green light to destroy God’s creation.

    Steve, when Jesus comes again, the earth will be made new. Those who reject Him or don’t keep his Commandments will cry out for the rocks to fall upon them. This old earth is coming to an end Steve, whether you… Believe It, Or Not!

    When the last plagues start Steve, will you remember this day or will you continue to ridicule truths?

    You see Steve, at least Don Joe found some info from the original links provided. I’ll deal with Don Joe later. My chain saw is acting up and I need some parts.

    Steve spews:

    @57 Left Behind bullshit. So that’s your excuse for destroying the earth? Ridicule truth? I ridicule you and your ignorance.

    @59 “At least Don Joe found some info”

    So did I. Refer to @13, 18, 23, 36, 46, 48, 53 and 56. Of course, what you call info is revealed as being only so much bullshit. You and Mr. Klynical have been exposed as ignorant, science-hating, praying-for-a-rapture-bailout fools. Go back to your childish namecalling, comic book sound effects, speaking in tongues, and Form 1040 narcissism.

    Hmm, that last sentence pretty much summed up Puddy’s entire, pathetic existence.

    Ah, so now we get to public policy based on a literalistic Christian eschatology.

    So, Puddy, when did Jesus ever sit on the throne of David?

    HHHHHAAAAA Puffybutt pretending to be a Christian again. These sick fucks need to be rounded up and burned at the stake. Fucking religious nitwits are out to ruin America. Fucks like Puffybutt who on the one hand claims to be a Christian, while on the other, challenges people to fake fights, hopes for the destruction of liberals, and generally conducts himself like the cunt that he is, prove that God – at least the GOP’s version of him, is full of shit!

    BTW today is the 10-year anniversary of the Christian Right’s single biggest achievement – the bombing of the Federal Building in OK. Way to go Christians!

    Puddy back for a few then gotta go again.

    Left Behind? There is nothing in the Bible which dictates left behind. It is created by Tim Lahaye who when challenged on 1 Cor 15 and 1 Thess 4 mumbled…
