I've gathered some links and videos, some political, most silly. Lazy blogging.
So to me Global Warming is like Truth or Dare:
TRUTH: We can either keep Global Warming in the news and convince people the truth is the planet is warming and we as humans might be causing Global Warming by pumping tons of CO2 into the atmosphere daily so let’s keep the momentum going to educate people about this problem and slowly eliminate the use of fossil fuels.
Or DARE: We can do nothing and DARE to find out what happens if we don’t fix this problem.

Identification requirements often sound simple. But some types of paperwork simply aren't available to many Americans. We saw this with the new Medicaid proof-of-citizenship requirement, which led to benefits being cut off for many longtime citizens. Some states insist that voters provide photo IDs such as driver's licenses. But at least 11 percent of voting-age Americans, disproportionately elderly and minority voters, lack the necessary papers. Required documentation such as naturalization paperwork can cost as much as $200. By contrast, when the poll tax was declared unconstitutional in 1966, it was $1.50 ($8.97 in 2007 dollars).

If you thought the Kirk Cameron/Bananas Are Proof Of God video was funny/ridiculous/frightening, get a load of this - Peanut butter is proof that evolution isn't true:
I... there's so much wrong with this it's difficult to even begin. But the comments on the YouTube page are marvelous.
"They need to do a Wonder Bread segment. Then we could discuss the whole peanut butter and banana sandwich trinity. Anyone?"
"Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the Earth was made of peanut butter 3-4 billion years ago."
"wasn't that was the reason for the Peter Pan Recall?
"When they fill the peanut putter can with a dense soup of hydrocarbons with a layer of dense carbon dioxide laden atmosphere above, zap it with large bolts of electrical energy regularly, and let it sit for a couple billion years, then we'll talk."
And now to the silly...
I had no idea that the movie 300 had become such a parody-fest on the Information Supertubeways. Three of my favorites I stumbled across today:

I don't know about you but I'm fully behind the Presidential candidate for the CT for Lieberman party. The party platform is the most civil I've ever heard.
Impossibility is no object when civility is at stake!
