    Interesting. So actual fact-based science is now a Democratic talking point? That would be consistent with much GOTP policy. How about these “talking points:” No one transmits Ebola without being symptomatic. No one has contacted Ebola in the First World who wasn’t a healthcare worker in close contact with an Ebola patient and their bodily fluids. I know the Radical Right doesn’t believe in science, but the fact remains that this is a bone-headed policy which protects no one, but which panders to uninformed hysteria and to the TP wing of Christie’s policy, who have already claimed that Obama wants to infect the U.S. with Ebola as punishment for slavery.

    Conservatives now control 3/4 of the gov’t. This is now their baby. I just hope they don’t expect the Dems to work with them. The game plan they used as a minority to take back Congress (no compromise, lack of bipartisanship, blame, blame, blame) was obviously effective. The Dems would be fools to do anything but follow it. But now Boehner and McConnell get the blame. Obama will catch some of it as well, but because he can’t run again, why do they care? Oh, and good luck with the Tea Party, Mitch; you’ll need it. You can catch and ride a rabid cougar for a while and go really fast, but the problem is that at some point you have to try to get off, and it then turns on you.

    The GOP’s failed policies will do nothing to fix a recession that officially doesn’t exist, because it only affects the middle class and the poor. The rich are doing very well, thankyouverymuch. So why would the GOP want to change anything with the economy?

    Though it’s true that ME have occurred in the past, you’re implicitly trivializing them. Life did recover, but took millions of years to do so. There are some indications that the Earth is approaching the end of its era of being able to support complex ecosystems, so after another ME the Earth would eventually recover, but it is not assured that it would recover to the level of biological complexity that existed before the advent of Man.

    It’s interesting how much climate change denial is starting to sound like 9/11 Truthers and Chem-trail believers. All require increasingly large yet completely secret coordination of various groups in some ever-widening conspiracy, while simultaneously denying both basic science and accusing vast legions of experts in their fields of either being incompetent or else being involved is a nefarious plot. And only the adherents know the “real” truth of the matter in all three cases.

    As constant as the Northern star.

    A two-meter sea level rise completely submerges New Orleans and Miami. It causes constant flooding in New York, Norfolk, VA, and scores of other coastal cities. Estimates have gone as high as $50B a year for the U.S. alone to mitigate such flooding, and over $1T of economic downturn. And most climatologists admit their estimates may be low, and a 2M rise estimate may be far too small. Still think that climate change mitigation is the only option that potentially reduces standards of living? Climate change deniers always seem to gloss over the real dollar and cent costs of doing nothing.

    You can’t be serious. You want the “freedom” to be able to eat an artifical substance that kills you, so you force those of us who care about our health to eat it? When these frankenchemicals are used, the manufacturers don’t make things without it. Unless I go “off the grid,” I can’t avoid them, just so you can not care about your health in any way. That’s like saying if I don’t like the fact that you drive a car ready to explode, I should stay off the road.

    Here in the United States the GOP has had the House for quite some time. Or maybe you’re referring to the alternate reality where the GOTP is concerned about the Constitution.
