Their dummies never get it though. Fighting against their own best interests is the conservative way.

The study looked at climate and coffee crop data from the last 60 years, and found that warmer nighttime temperatures are already hurting coffee yields.

They're thinking: "Too many people accept the fact about climate change, so since we can't change their mind with lies, let's stop scientific organizations from providing those facts in the first place."

That's because it shows us exactly who's responsible for polluting and where.

+George G and +Brian D, you're both correct, as far as i'm concerned. If he stands as passionate as a POTUS as he has as a congressman for the last million years, he would be (finally) a man that will work for the Americans that need him the most.

Very well written article worth reading and rereading. 
Wall Street and religious right were a winning team — for the rich. Now evangelicals want their share. Look out!

Story
Tagline
Free Will is Determined
Introduction
I enjoy discussing philosophy, politics, science, and any related topics. 

Biography: I was raised in New Jersey, but grew up in California (doesn't say much for Jersey, does it?). I write and share stuff on Google+ for family, friends, and the general public.

My Circles: I have the usual circles, Family and Friends, etc.. I also have circles for Technology, Science, Politics, "Favorite People," "Cool People," and "New People." When I first add you, you are in my "New People" circle. As I get to know you better, and you interact more, you get to my "Cool People," or "Favorite People" circle. It takes time, but I will move you up if I get to know you (or move you down).

I take time to add people to my circles, because I carefully view their profiles and posts. So, if you added me and I haven't added you back yet, please be patient and interact on my posts. I'm not interested in being cool, or demonstrating that thousands of people like me; if I was, I would join Fakebook. To me, this is about communication and growth.

Age: 41.

Ethnicity: Does it matter? It shouldn't. If I must tell you, and you don't get it by my picture, I'm "white," although, the term is inaccurate since we tend to be more of a light peach color.

I am a mixture of a few ethnicity's, as most people are. My grandfather was of German ancestry, though to him, an Army Veteran, he was simply an American. My Grandmother was Jewish and English. The dirtbag that impregnated my mother was also Jewish. So, I'm Jewish, English, and German. So I always defend myself when I think about committing suicide (it's a joke, think about it for a minute). 

Politics: I am a Liberal Progressive Democrat with Socialist leanings. I still align with the Democratic party; though I often complain about its flaws. I don't believe in being completely cynical about politics as nothing will get accomplished if we put our hands up like some do and say "they're all the same."

"They" are NOT all the same. Bush was proof that they are not the same... In the 8 years following Clinton's departure from the white house, we would have been much better off with Gore as president; especially considering his winning the election; but that's another story...
 
Music: I love music; with a special emphasis on 70's-80's New Wave & Punk. Of course I also love Blues, Jazz, Rock and Roll, Funk, R&B (The real stuff, pre-1980's), Reggae, Ska, and Hip-Hop, etc.
 
Movies/TV: I like Sci-Fi, especially Star Trek. I like comedy, and enjoy listening to or watching George Carlin, Louis C.K., and other like-minded comedians.
 
Food: I am a Vegetarian; wannabe Vegan. Actually, in the past 21 years that I have been Vegetarian, I have been Vegan on and off. If you scroll through my profile, my weight changes fairly drastically over the years, especially when I eat cheese. I recently gave up my cheese addiction and am attempting to be a full Vegan again. In a short amount of time I lost a great deal of weight, simply by cutting out the cheese and eating more veggies.
 
Technology: I mainly use Android devices, besides my Windows PC and Chromebook. I built custom computers in the 1990's and early 2000's, for fun, when I had more time, before becoming a parent. I like to customize what I own, and prefer more options than what is usually offered by computer manufacturers.
 
When I have worked in audio engineering and in graphic design, and had the unlucky opportunity to use an Apple, I always would ask for a PC. It's not just the fact that I am used to, and prefer a non-Apple computer, it's the fact that I have had as many, if not more, issues on an Apple computer; though Apple users usually suggest otherwise.
 
I currently use a Samsung Galaxy S5, Google Nexus 7 (2013), and a Chromebook. Oh, and a Windows PC that I don't like turning on unless I have to; especially after upgrading to Windows 8. It's not as bad as some people say, but I had no real reason to upgrade, and shouldn't have. It sucks, and is really slow.
 
Social Media: Because I work in Marketing, I have had to setup Facebook and Twitter accounts for the companies that I have worked for. I have used both effectively, and reluctantly, for marketing and business purposes.

I do not use, nor maintain, a Fakebook account, nor have the desire to have one. I have probably "tweeted" 5-6 times. Instead, I promote Google+ to family, friends, and businesses because I believe it is a better social media tool that is much less invasive, more powerful, and much more enjoyable than what other companies are offering. Though, it is rare any of them actually get on.
 
Philosophy: Systems of beliefs are a personal matter. I don't appreciate the attempt to convert me, and I gain nothing from an attempt to convert you, so why bother? My philosophies are made clear on some of my posts, so it's not as simple as me offering a declaration of my philosophy on my profile. You can disagree with my philosophical views, yet still enjoy most of the other content that I provide.
 
Debate: I like to debate and discuss topics with others; the conversation is over once racism, sexism, hatred, violence, enters the discussion. At that point, I leave, or go out of my way to offend the offensive.

Thank's for reading, I look forward to your comments.

I was just there the other night. I have shopped at Rhino Records since 1987 when they had a 2 store record store right next door to the location they are currently at. I appreciate seeing some of the older employees, who have been there for years, but mostly, there are new faces. I don't buy many hard copy albums anymore, but when I do, I always support independent record stores like Rhino Records.

I love shopping at Costco. They offer great products, have good customer service, and the prices are great; especially for fruits and vegetables. This store is good. I absolutely hate the parking lot; it's big, but they get quite a bit of traffic and it's always difficult getting in and out. So, this is a very crowded store, but it's the closest to my home.

I had a terrible experience at this dental office. The dentist was unprofessional, rude, and had me sitting and waiting 3-4 hours after forgetting about me. I had to go back several times for appointments and each one was worse than the last. Once they had my money, my complaints were ignored, and their attitude was increasingly negative; and their policy is to blame the patient. The work they did is shoddy. 2 years later and I still have pain from a root canal. When I mentioned this, he said it was "all in my head." A crown was not the right size, so my bite suffered since, and they refused to schedule me an appointment with another dentist at that facility. I will never fully recover from their complete incompetence. I have spoken to several other people that felt the same way, and had a very similar experience. I would never go back to this place.
