I do have to agree with Mav. Five, six seven and eight were more give and take, less posturing.
Of course, Mav is still wrong and I'm right but that goes without saying :-)
Soemwhere in there I think Little Hawk let slip about the leftist liberal plot to take over the world but no one will believe it so we're all safe.
And on to reality (scary as it is)
Tax Cut Update:
Pre-election - Cost of Tax Cut is $1 trillion, medicare and social security trust funds will be preserved. (This from W)
After Election - Cost of Tax Cut now $1.6 trillion. funds still preserbed. (Also from W)
As sent to and passed by House (per request of W)- Cost of tax cut is now $2.5 trillion and the medicare trust fund is up for grabs.
And Big Business hasn't even started heavy duty lobbying yet. Last big tax cut (Reagan) they ended up with the lions share and we ended up with a deficit.
Let me guess, its like some cheap "B" grade 50's horror flic: The Return of Voodoo Economics
Except it ain't cheap.
What is true is that the amount of "greenhouse gases" have been rising. This month's Nature has an article about same, based on satellite spectroscopy.
All that remains is to determine whether the gases really do have a greenhouse effect. Which ought to be demonstrated, one way or another, in the next couple of years.
The question is, just how far under water does Times Square need to get before it isn't junk science? :-)
