The purpose of the constitution is to protect freedoms of the people.
If you pass a law that TAKES AWAY freedom from the people, that is not comp
arable to passing a law the GIVES freedom to the people. There is a fundame
ntal difference. New laws are almost always for taking away freedoms, this
is a rare example of the opposite.

Nowhere in the constitution does it say that the law making process
can be skipped because a president deems the new law gives someone freedom.
Following that logic, one could come up with any number of laws that
a president, abusing his power, could enact or nulify. And who says what
Obama did only gives and doesn't take? The border states are already being

The Republicans aren't an excuse for the lies and failures of Obama.
If you don't like what your employer is doing you have three choices:
1. Get another job.
2. Buy your own insurance.
3. Quit whining and at least act like a man.
Keep showing how stupid you are like Dr. Gruber said. The house and
senate the legislative branch of the government. They are responsible
for creating the laws. The prosecutorial responsibility is under the
purview of the Department of Justice. The president that you are in

man enough I would like to hear an apology.
What part of "There's many more, but I think you get my point" are you
incapable of understanding?
That depends on how "willing to work with the house and senate" Obama
really is. However, this is yet another example of the lies we've hard
from him many times before.
Next time get the facts before you show your stupidity again.

Some of these libs are very strange indeed. If you don't care about what
kind of healthcare plan your employer has, that says a lot about your
overall intelligence, awareness, and concern about the world around you.
Sounds like he's the kind of voter that Gruber was talking about.

No, the IPCC doesn't make synthetic climate. I expect what they're
referring to is the use of computer models to assess climate change.
Even when I was a petroleum engineer 30 years ago, we used main frame
computers to model reservoir behaviour. Basically, we would generate a
mathematical model of the reservoir under the ground with known rock
parameters at each well location and see if we could get the computer to
predict historical behaviour. That is, we would withdraw the known
production from each well and see if the computer would accurately
predict the pressure in the reservoir, the elevation of the gas/oil
interface and the water/oil interface. If we could manipulate the
unknown parameters into getting the computer to accurately predict
historical measured pressures and gas/oil and oil/water interface
elevations, then we could use that same model to predict how the
reservoir would behave if we were to produce it in different ways, such
as by implementing a water flood or perhaps a miscible flood. In that
way, we maximize the amount of oil produced from large reservoirs.
Climate scientists do the same thing. If they can get their computer
models to predict historically accurate global temperature increases,
then they can use that model to predict what will happen with the global
climate in the future under different scenarios, such as the world
moving from gasoline powered automobiles to electric automobiles over
the next 40 years, or by changing from coal burning electric generating
stations to nuclear reactors, for example.
So, when they say the IPCC "synthesizes climate change - related
science" it means that they use their computer models to see if
scientific claims about global warming are realistic or not, based on
whether their computer models agree with those claims.
Even 30 years ago, the people in computer reservoir simulation business
were aware that computer climate models were amongst the most computer
intensive applications of computer modelling that there was. 30 years
ago, it took days and even weeks of time on a mainframe computer to run
a single computer simulation, and so it was only universities and
governments who owned their own computers that could afford to use them
for climate modeling. Tying up a piece of equipment like a computer
that cost 20 million dollars for a week would have been prohibitively
expensive for independant or privately funded climate researchers.

when you create a simulation of a geological formation, you have a lot of i
nfomration about the formation. you also have the benefit of testing the s
imulation on other formations and you can refine the simulation over time a
electronics engineers use simulations to test circuits. the behavior of th
e components is mostly well known. as soon as you get into an area where t
he behavior of a component is not known exactly, the simulation fails.
the Earths climate system is chaotic (this is not just a verbal description
, it has a technical mathematical meaning) and the behavior of the componet
s are not well known. Also they do not have the benefit of testing the sim
lation model. And yet they want to to use the results of these models as t
he basis for important economc and social policy decisions.

No, the surface of a roulette wheel has numerous protrusions on it's
surface. The roulette ball hitting any of these would cause it to
bounce, possibly into a different area of the wheel. Consequently,
minute changes in the speed or timing of the roulette ball's release
make a big difference in where the roulette ball winds up.
I don't think it's reasonable to presume that the Earth's climate is
THAT chaotic. If it were, then we couldn't tell with any degree of
certainty when we would have summer or winter and how long those seasons
would last. We could conceivably have -40 degree F temperatures for one
week and then suddenly have +40 degree F temperatures the next. That's
what can happen on a roulette wheel, but things aren't quite that
chaotic in our weather.
