The human race is doing Earth a great service by restoring long-buried CO2 to our atmosphere.

CO2 helps plants grow.  Who knew?!  Plants in turn replenishes earth's atmosphere with oxygen essential for animal life.  Crazy talk!  I haven't heard this kind of thing since ... science class.  We needed a new study to learn this?  What if this news leaks out to the political class?!


...we use three long-term satellite leaf area index (LAI) records and ten global ecosystem models to investigate four key drivers of LAI trends during 1982–2009. We show a persistent and widespread increase of growing season integrated LAI (greening) over 25% to 50% of the global vegetated area, whereas less than 4% of the globe shows decreasing LAI (browning). Factorial simulations with multiple global ecosystem models suggest that CO2 fertilization effects explain 70% of the observed greening trend,

This country really wouldn't deserve him. Not anymore.

I was thinking about it, and if I was charged with protecting any of the current candidates, I think I'd spit out my coffee at the idea of it.

Bernie - The Socialist
Clinton - The criminal, America hating hag
Trump - The Manhattan Realtor (saleperson - you know the type)
Kasich - If ever someone had RINO written all over him
Cruz - The Canadian.... and he is.

I hope God knows what HE is doing in all of this. The worst part is a large swath of America are perfectly fine endorsing a criminal or a socialist that's never earned his own paycheck. What does one do with that?

"He now admits wanting to "raise taxes on the rich" along with expanding the role, power and scale of government."

ccp:  Doug I haven't seen this.

Donald Trump is running on a plan to dramatically cut taxes for the ultra-rich while talking up his willingness to raise taxes on the same group. Sooner or later, it’s going to get him into trouble.

“Do you believe on raising taxes on the wealthy?” Trump was asked on the TODAY Show on Thursday morning.  

“I do,” he said. “I do. Including myself, I do.”

(2nd source:  http://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2016/04/21/trump-oh-you-bet-i-support-raising-taxes-on-the-rich-n2152154)
------------------------------------

When I read the left I always look for the lie in the first sentence or point they make, but when ripping Trump, now they are able to just run with the truth.

I wrote previously that I like Trump tax plan in some ways better than Rubio's or Cruz'.  Rubio massively bumped up a tax credit, didn't lower ordinary rates enough and unrealistically lowered capital gains rates to zero - that will never happen.  Ted Cruz creates a new 16% tax on everything certain to be used against us forever by liberals while unrealistically lowering the top tax rate on the rich to just 10% - and that will never happen.

The problems with Trump's tax plan are that it isn't his, he hasn't read it, he isn't pushing it and he doesn't believe in it.

Besides giving the left endless fodder, his wishy-washiness, lack of a core and endless inconsistencies expose more than a tax rate problem.

ccp:  "As will be the fact that Bernie and wife paid only 14% tax rate on over 200K income as per Greta last night.  I don't blame them for doing THAT (and agree with Greta that I would like to know just how they got away with it)  but it is just the hypocrisy of it all."


To his credit, George McGovern had some regrets later, after trying and failing at business, about the massive burden of government - back then.

Bernie at 74 is new at being a rick star. He likes being a 1%er like the Clintons and Michelle Obama, note the jumbo jet and entourage this common man took for his 3 minute meeting with the Pope.  Like a lottery winner, he will have learned nothing along the way of what ordinary people need to do to raise their income and how government fights you every step of the way, taxes jut being a part of it.

In terms of hypocrisy, why is it that none of them give an extra dollar they don't have to when they think it is the agent of the greatest good of all.

Tax vs. charity or coercion versus philanthropy:  What if all those things government does for people were great and we believed people are great and trusted the to do the right thing.  Why not let people prosper and then give to all these great causes voluntarily?  This is the antithesis to leftism where coercion is the centerpiece, not the great good you are pretending to be doing. 

It turns out that freedom, prosperity and philanthropy beats coercive socialism every time it is tried.  Besides being morally superior, it turns out it is far more efficient and effective.

What a shame that Bernie's vision of returning to something so close to slavery sounds appealing to so many young people and is not being effectively countered by our side at all.

Crafty said,

"Trump is awful."

Yes.  yesterday he was shown making fun of the way Kasich eats.  He is not only vulgar, but just as ridiculous.

I wonder when Clooney is going to announce he is running for something. 2018?  Or maybe he is waiting for an appointment with the Clinton White House first.

"The left's outrage will be....muted."

As will be the fact that Bernie and wife paid only 14% tax rate on over 200K income as per Greta last night.  I don't blame them for doing THAT (and agree with Greta that I would like to know just how they got away with it)  but it is just the hypocrisy of it all.

But, because they are Dems and "for the po" in their loving hearts, it is all OK.

Too bad they can't link this to Obama himself:
