Rick offers some Santorum

Santorum: Democrats Are 'Anti-Science' (Inside Higher Ed)

     Rick Santorum, enjoying a surge in support in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, on Monday said in a speech that he is not "anti-science," but that Democrats are, CBS News reported. Santorum has been criticized by many scientists for, among other things, suggesting that there is not a consensus that global climate change is real and is significant. Speaking in Ohio Monday, he said that the science of global warming is "political science," based on "phony studies." He elaborated: "When it comes to the management of the Earth, they are the anti-science ones. We are the ones who stand for science, and technology, and using the resources we have to be able to make sure that we have a quality of life in this country and [that we] maintain a good and stable environment."

How many readers even know what "santorum" is? Let's not speak of it.

I agree. The so called "climate science" is nothing but a big hoax based on junk science. Oh no, the sky is falling! The only solution is to raise everyone's taxes! A democrat wet dream.

Yeah, right, that's why all of the academies of science around the world--including the conservative NAS here in the U.S.--are on board with the likelihood of climate change and human contributions to it. See http://nationalacademies.org/onpi/06072005.pdf
So, are we to conclude that the conspiracy is everywhere? Why would that be so?
You people should get an education.

I understand that Santorum thinks of "The Flintstones" as a documentary.

It's sort of a documentary on the Honeymooners, ain't it?

1:44, considering that 95% of the world and it's representive UN are all anti US, well YES! Conspiracy all the way. Don't believe any of it. Big scam.

"Sigh." That's all I have for 5:08

I can't tell if it's someone trying to be funny, or if he's just so abysmally stupid that I feel, actually, some pity that this person is going to need some assistance in difficult tasks such as balancing his checkbook.
