    Wow interesting point. I always love talking about states rights. It's one of those issues we all seem to love, except when a state does something we don't like.

    I never really thought about it in terms of religion though. Your theory is very interesting.

    I wonder if our states will ever become places drastically different like that. Or if the feds will win and every state will be held in line.

    I remember back in the day they used highway funds to force all states to a 21 drinking age.
    Care all you want about what your State does. And have the tolerance to not give a **** about what the rest of them do. This is the model the union was founded on. The breakdown of which is the main reason we struggle so mightily to get along.

    You are so wrong about that.

    Yep the feds squashed states rights a long time ago. You're right it is a joke to even think about it.

    I grew up knowing better and I grew up in a strict Christian household with preachers peppered throughout the family tree.

    And people wonder why the rest of the world think we're so dumb.
    Maybe the paint chips?

    Most people aren't really that spiritual. They may choose one organized religion over another based on lifestyle or convenience. People get brainwashed at an early age to really believe in Chritianity/Islam/Buddhism. I think the belief is strong like it is in Santa Claus. Eventually, the belief dies and religion becomes a show. Most people wouldn't go to church if nobody else could see them.

    how about each night we all check in and report the extreme weather from our area. It will help us track for ourselves.

    Tonight in Long Beach clear and cool. No sign of global warming here.

    They believe the same thing, just change "God" to "Allah".
    Because I'm a nationalist. **** Iran and Afghanistan. Also I like to party and there is more room for that in Christianity then there is Islam.

    To even compare the two religions at this point is a joke. One is tolerant and can exist with modern society, the other can't.

    Obama will be gone in a couple of years, climate change will still be with us.

    Warming 'increasingly disruptive' across US - report

    Other scientists involved in the report believed that the deadlock in
    Washington didn't reflect the breadth of US attitudes towards climate change.

    Businesses, traders and people from all walks of life were seeing the impacts
    and wanted more information.

    "It is frustrating - but I am reasonably optimistic," said Dr David Wolfe, another lead author.

    "When I move out of the Beltway, I am seeing different things, even among the farmer audience. They are all about making a profit, so they are
    interested in protecting what they've got."

    If we don't slam the brakes on the carbon pollution driving climate change, we're dooming ourselves and our children”

    Have every right to sit there and not give a ****.

    Just because they are saying a prayer doesn't mean I have to pay attention. And it doesn't mean anyone is forcing you to recite it with the preacher, elected representative or whoever it is that is reciting it.

    You aren't losing any of your god damn rights if you have to hear a prayer.

    I have zero "faith" in any religion, but I don't get my panties in a wad when I hear a prayer.
