He was well-paid in the military because of the New Deal, pure and simple. It is a travesty that a who's ancestors were enslaved by like the founding fathers is now turning around and slandering the Obama government as "tyrannical". But so it is middle class.

I'm not sure what one has to do with another.

Christopher Furlong: said...

It means that the middle class is divorced from its causal roots, because it is rich enough to be so.

Sorry I have no idea what you mean Chris but this guy with talk of bayonets seems a bit off.

The Obama government was supposed to be a breath of fresh air. It smells very stale from where I sit.

Christopher Furlong: said...

I see, so politics has to be new and exciting or it is "stale". That is an incredibly stupid position.

Look up the meaning of the word "casual" to figure out what I meant. It is not my job to teach you English.

Your message is lost in your rude behaviour. I learned a long time ago that debate and dicussion with those who chose to take this tack is a futile endeavor.

For some reason you seem to feel that rude and childish behaviour in a debate enhances your arguement. It does not!

Josh said...

Agreed.

Your polite behavior is exactly the same. Think about it.

As long as you continue to be a denialist, I will continue to be rude. Those who filter reality for facts that they agree with are dangerous.

"For some reason you seem to feel that rude and childish behaviour in a debate enhances your arguement. It does not!"

And for some reason you think that you can reject a fact because you "believe" it is wrong.

The sky is blue.

This is a fact.

Man made emissions are warming the earth.

This is a theory. Another theory is that the earth is being affected by radiation from the Sun, as the Sun has a much larger impact on our climate than the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.

Theory^

"as the Sun has a much larger impact on our climate than the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere."

Assumption based on ideology.

No, there is ample evidence to show that CO2 from the Industrial Age corresponds with the warming.

"No, there is ample evidence to show that CO2 from the Industrial Age corresponds with the warming."

No. There is a simple correlation. Correlation does not equal causation.

Chris said...

That is a stupid principle. The correct maxim is: Correlation does not necessarily equal causation.

Josh said...

True. My point still stands.

Christopher Furlong: said...

No, in this case correlation is causations. Mainly becusue that is not the only evidence.

Josh said...

Its the only evidence you provide, while ignoring the medieval warm period and warm periods prior to that.
