Enjoying the weather? It seems to be the number one topic on everyone’s mind, these days. I don’t care where or with whom you find yourself, the first thing out of everyone’s mouth is “Man, this weather is ____ (insert your obscenity of choice).

Self-styled “global-warming”

Self-styled “global-warming” guru Al Gore and a gaggle of supposed “climate scientists” have egg all over their faces — big time. In 2007, 2008 and 2009, Gore publicly and very hysterically warned that the North Pole would be “ice-free” by around 2013 because of alleged “man-made global warming.” Citing “climate” experts, the government-funded BBC hyped the mass hysteria, running a now-embarrassing article under the headline: “Arctic summers ice-free ‘by 2013’.” Other establishment media outlets did the same. Well, 2013 is over, and contrary to the alarmist “predictions” by Gore and what critics refer to as his “doomsday cult,” the latest satellite data show that Arctic ice cover has actually expanded 50 percent over 2012 levels. In fact, during October, sea-ice levels grew at the fastest pace since records began in 1979. Experts predict the expansion to continue in the years to come, leaving global-warming alarmists scrambling fiendishly for explanations to save face — and to revive the rapidly melting climate hysteria. In September, meanwhile, data also showed that sea ice levels in Antarctica had expanded to record levels for the second year in a row. Of course, by now, virtually everyone who has been following news about “global warming” — now more often referred to as “climate change” owing to public-relations concerns — also knows that global temperatures have not risen for some 17 years. The spectacular lack of warming demolished all 73 of the “climate models” used by the United Nations to push its controversial theories. This same bunch of alarmists warned us of ever increasing assaults by more frequent and stronger hurricanes and more tornadoes. 2013 marked the fewest number of hurricanes in decades the lowest number of tornadoes on record. Duke energy has, of recent times, given more to Republican candidates - but they did contribute ten million dollars to the Democratic National Committee when they held their convention in Charlotte. So.... It seems Duke is like a lot of the big players - they try to make sure they have friends in both parties - you never know when you might need a friend. And my Representatives are doing just fine and I'll vote to keep them in office this November.

Can't really understand why

Can't really understand why you would use so many words to say absolutely nothing of substance. Spoken like a true conservative though! Regards.

I've been looking. Where's

I've been looking. Where's your substance. Oh...and Regards..

Ice ages

The climate has changed from time to time since earths creation, well before the industrial revolution, that's why most of us don't buy the lefts agenda or your religion.

Most of you? Thank goodness

Most of you? Thank goodness your only from a very small slice of the real world! Regards.


Hey Bud, have you ever thought of referencing reliable sources when you make your accusations? Or is this something your fellow left-wings spouted on PMSNBC?

It's an

It's and op-ed and as such does not require footnotes . . .

No footnotes

Truth isn't required either if you have ever followed his columns

Bud only comments from

Bud only comments from reliable sources. In case you didn't know, Fox News is not really a fact source, it's a source of fiction only used by uniformed people..........kind of like you! Keep up the Huckabee! Regards.


If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. If you like you doctor, you can keep your doctor. Raising the national debt is un-american. The list goes on and on, but I think everyone gets the point.

Who needs representative government?

Oh! And lets not forget this one. Whatever President Obama wants but can't get approved by Congress he will accomplish by Executive Order. Makes me wonder if we really need an elected body to run the ship of state. Imagine the money we could save if we just eliminated the need for senators and representatives!
