Red crucifix? Skewed carbon dating results?
Does this mean the Turin Shroud is real...?
Well there really is a Turin Shroud with an image, there is a question of how it was made.
So, let me ask - historically speaking, what has California's rainfall averaged, since the white man first came on the scene?
The funny thing is, I do a Google search to check that out. I click several links, and none show the information I am looking for. In 1849, what was the rainfall? Nothing. 1850? Nothing. 1851? Still more nothing. Where do I find the historical data?
Now, is there REALLY this remarkable drought, or have we simply been over using the available water for several decades already? There are a number of places where we have millions of people, but the land historically only supported hundreds or thousands. Even with tens of thousands, the weather and the land supplied plenty of water for survival, and some thrown in for waste and recreation. But, MILLIONS? Oh-oh - not enough water to go around.
We have been pumping lakes, rivers, and aquifers dry for decades now. We pump water from wherever we can find it, not caring about where it came from, or whether it will ever be replaced, or how it might be replaced.
Do we really have exceptional droughts today, or are we simply running out of water to waste?
Show me the historical data, please. Does it actually support this climate change theory?
Oh my, you mean you can't Google everything? Some source data hasn't and never will be put on the Net. Sorry about that.

Your nation already looks destroyed. Despite rampant criminality and indiscipline in the administration, the DoJ is deliberately remaining toothless on the matter, the judiciary is issuing no orders to rectify its oversight being ignored, and the legislators are largely following sponsor^Wparty lines instead of constituent wishes when drafting and voting on legislation. A revolution at this point could only create a nation.
Baa, the U.S. remains a great nation. Please respect the folks who have concerns and voice them. Many (most) nations would not tolerate this self examination. We use it for self correction. Much of of our problem is the news media looking for flashy headlines. If I were in charge I would have the cable news run reruns of My Mother the Car, until there was something worthwhile to report. (Now I wish we would get on with the self correction, right after we pass a debt extension and get a dang budget for the government to operate.)
Which again, isn't really a shock - they were always allowed to look for spies, but after Al Qaeda showed everyone how infiltration can really be done, you'd pretty much expect them to be looking at everyone to figure out if they are an 'agent a foreign power'.
Except that the FBI was responsible for looking for spies (at least domestically), so this did open a new (additional) floodgate of money. (Not that the FBI has been left in the cold, but now they look for terrorists, instead of things like bank fraud.)
I thought a conference was an excuse to meet in the hallways and for beer later. Ever been to a Gordon Research Conf? The sessions are just a opening of ideas to talk about later.
