What do you think is at stake in the 2008 election?

I agree with more than you think... but pointing out only our short commings isn't the whole picture. Unable to keep food on the table... we have soo many safety nets (welfare) it isn't funny. I have relatives that live of our tax dollars and eat much better than I. Ask France if they aren't happy that we saved their butts in WWII?? The folks in New Orleans... even though it is tragic... had much more time to get out than Greensburg Ks had for a tornado. What about the more recent hurricanes... people took more responsibility for their actions. Even though, I agree that much of the free world does do some of the good that we do... but more often than not... WE do lead the way. If you hate america sooo much... don't have to stay.

What do you think is at stake in the 2008 election?

I agree Clickker... even with all our problems, we are the best country in history. We basically feed, protect, and rescue (from natual disaster) most of the free world. I think we should have a balance... buffylogal. Ok, we should care what other countries think of us, but not to our own demise. When our buildings are knocked down with our own planes and 3ooo people die... I don't care what any other country thinks... we needed to kick butt. Foreign policy... I pick McCain! ... fighting corruption (the current crisis)... McCain/PalinKeeping taxes low and cut spending (elliminate earmarks)... McCain/PalinIt really has to do with the issues, and who ya think would address them most effectively. The reason I won't vote Obama is not that he is black (he's not really black anyway... he is half white). It is his policies, which border on socialism. If JC Watts, Condy Rice, or Micheal Steel were running... they would get my vote... and they are all really black.

NASA climate expert warns Kansans of dire consequences of global warming

Over the past year, anecdotal evidence for a cooling planet has exploded. China has its coldest winter in 100 years. Baghdad sees its first snow in all recorded history. North America has the most snowcover in 50 years, with places like Wisconsin the highest since record-keeping began. Record levels of Antarctic sea ice, record cold in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Australia, Iran, Greece, South Africa, Greenland, Argentina, Chile -- the list goes on and on. No more than anecdotal evidence, to be sure. But now, that evidence has been supplanted by hard scientific fact. All four major global temperature tracking outlets (Hadley, NASA's GISS, UAH, RSS) have released updated data. All show that over the past year, global temperatures have dropped precipitously," a degree in one year, ladies and gentlemen.

NASA climate expert warns Kansans of dire consequences of global warming

More than 31,000 scientists across the U.S. including more than 9,000 Ph.D.s in fields such as atmospheric science, climatology, Earth science, environment and dozens of other specialties have signed a petition rejecting "global warming," the assumption that the human production of greenhouse gases is damaging Earth's climate. "There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate," the petition states. "Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth."WND- May 19, 2008
