I didn't know that, I thought hurricane tracking started in the 1800's. Could there have been other factors defining landmasses besides hurricanes?
Just because nobody tracked the hurricanes you think they didn't happen before 1800s? Seriously? Yes there are a lot of factors that affect land masses, but this one seems to be obvious given the abundance of the hurricanes. Still none of it can be attributed to anything man-made, which was the issue I commented on. It takes a few million years to do this kind of "adjustment" a lot longer than we have been warming the planet.


hellsbrink, how am I doing? Are you good with the popcorn?

My dear LOAJ:
I notice the wolf pack tell you to mind your own or we don't care what you
think outside of the USA when they don't like what we write
Speaking for myself, I come to PPRuNe to see what others think and why they think their thoughts, even those commenting on the US political scene.

What chaps me is when those non-Americans who cannot vote think they have the right/obligation/hutzpah to tell we Americans how to vote. Have an opinion? Great. Explain why you think that way. It is the height of condescension to think you can tell an American how to vote.

The fact that you like Obama is interesting as are the reasons why. The difference in perspective from someone who can only view the system with his nose pressed on the glass while the Americans decide their fate is amusing as well.

It is utterly inconsequential when it comes to me casting my vote, but it is interesting nonetheless.

Wrong! He was the US President, at the time, and was clueless as to the response required. This probably started with his appointment of the head of FEMA who was more than clueless.
That is your opinion, not a fact, you seem always to confuse the two.

Open comment to Monsieur Rymer, of the International Elections observing group.

Sir, if I asked nicely, could you identify where and in what institution you were taught such disregard for and disrespect of, the people of a sovereign Nation not your own?

I'll wait......

I didn't infer it actually. You took to interpret it that why. Turbine quoted some usual suspects responses telling a poster to virtually clear off. I merely reiterated the point that often posters are told it doesn't concern them.

My geography's just fine thanks through the job I do for a living. I'm sure you're not beyond nipping over the border as I presume you live in Belgium

Again, LAJ, it shows what knowledge you have regarding the country you mentioned.

And since you have had a reply from one of those you have tarred with the

we don't care what you think outside of the USA
brush, it might be wise to rethink it.

Brick,

I should not of course cast the whole wolf pack in the same vein. A look back over the last few pages will see evidence that some of the GOP clan here tell others to mind their own. I wouldn't tell you how to vote nor expect you to tell me how to vote. I will however point out flaws in the arguments advanced by some on here when I see fit

Looks like even Republicans are liking how Obama is dealing with Sandy. Are you watching GWB ?

You have to wonder...if obama was the challenger and romney the incumbent, would obama have come up with a collection drive to send things to the New York area?

And they can't get the electricity going...hmmm...all that money on ''stimulus, and shovel ready things over four years''...they could have buried the electric lines like we do out west and the trees wouldn't have knocked them down.

Obama has been a very weak president...and for the record...we have MORE bayonets today than in 1916.

And when the ambassador to libya called for help, it wasn't forthcoming.

some commander in chief!

I've voted early for romney in a swing state!

I read their replies pretty much the same way as I intend mine. "Have an opinion all you like. Don't tell me what to do and how to do it."

It's called American exceptionalism. I believe, hope, pray that it's still alive in my country.

Interesting that you see it as a "shut up." (BTW, where are all those Obama supporters? We in the RWS were pretty well out-numbered last rodeo. Now it seems all the Euro/urban cowboys have saddled up their Range Rovers and gone home...)



edited to add: WTF??? I initially wrote "Land Rovers" in my post and it displayed as "naked ladies with their air guns."

Which is, in fact, interesting, but WTF?

I would disagree Brick that you guys were outnumbered last time round. Airship, Dave Martin, Captain Kaos, Billhicksrules, Bigfatsweatysock, Grandpa, High Wing Drifter etc seem not to frequent PPRuNe anymore but I very much doubt the reason is Obama's performance in the last 4 years

LAJ:

You really need to read and comprehend or quit trying to stir a pot...

All three of the quotes Turbine used were against someone who was trying to turn the USA Politics Hamster wheel into another Climate Change Hamster wheel. So it wasn't a case of the "resident GOPers" rejecting someone who didn't see eye to eye but merely those people trying to keep the thread on topic as it is supposed to be per ROE.

Personally, I think you're a low grade pot stirrer but it wouldn't surprise me to find you are actually silly enough to believe the unadulterated excrement you scribble here.

LAJ, the only person being told to get lost was someone starting to talk about Global Warming and how Obama must be elected to restore ecological balance. He was told to get lost and go where that subject is discussed ad nauseam So don't exaggerate an make it as if somehow he was ousted for his political views, on either side of US politics. This was just utter rubbish, and it does not belong here.

As for who is and who isn't here, well you know damn well that last time around there were many who were absolutely flabbergasted asked that anyone could even suggest not voting and supporting The Chosen One. Where are they now? Most are gone. Where is jcbmack, GetTheFlick , Sunray Minor, captain stable, El Grifo, low flier... These are just a few I can remember who were on your side, I think. I can go on. And this is even before we take I to account the 200,000 screaming Germans.

So, I see you three have been appointed "Air Traffic Controllers" of the PPRuNe USA Politics -Hamster Wheel, who posts, who shouldn't and posting content as well. I imagined freedom of speech was a Conservative virtue whereas in a dictatorial situation it is scorned upon. You can't have your cake and eat it, too. So which is it?
I missed that on my first response to your rambling post.

TurbineD, there is already a very long thread running about Climate Change here in JetBlast. I, not speaking for the others, do not wish to re-hash the same subject over and over again that has already been covered on that thread about Climate Change.

If you wish to start discussing climate change here, instead of on the thread already running, that is your prerogative and you will probably receive the same response.

Re-entry wanted to push his propaganda of AGW as the cause of Hurricane Sandy. This is not the thread for that, the Climate Change thread is the place for his nonsense.

Otherwise, there would be no need for different threads for different subjects. There would be just one thread for all subjects.

The most efficient moderation is self moderation by the members of the website. But that does not always work. I, we, were just trying to keep things on tract and keep subjects where they belong to avoid unnecessary repetition.

If you disagee, so be it.

I am not confused at all between opinion and fact.
In November, 2010, Mr. Bush appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show to promote his book, "Decision Points". Regarding the handling of Katrina, Mr. Bush acknowledged that,
"We could've done a much better job."
Then, Mr. Bush went on to say:
"The federal government's role is to help the governor," he said. "In this case the storm...overwhelmed state government." Mr. Bush added: "I should've recognized the deficiency sooner and intervened sooner."
Bush's appointed Head of FEMA at the time was Michael D. Brown, a lawyer from Oklahoma who ran Bush's election campaign in 2000. He had little or no experience in emergency management. Contrast that with Obama's selection as head of FEMA: President Obama Selected Craig Fugate, Florida Emergency Manager with Fire Service Background, to Head FEMA.
Now, Michael Brown criticizes Obama "for acting too soon" in the Sandy disaster, still hasn't figured it out...

Have you not put me on ignore yet AA ? I did ask you to if you don't like opposing opinions.

Good work Dushan. Needs divvying up though between the pro and anti Bush brigade does it not ?

Good news tonight boys is that Obama is getting the edge apparently according to Channel 4 in the UK. Don't wanna call it myself but the UK bookies are trading Obama at 1/3 and Romney at 11/4 as next President


Great news eh

Counterpoint:

America appointed a President named Barack Hussein Obama, a lawyer from Chicago, who was a community organizer. He had little or no experience in executive leadership.

Obama has done far more damage to America than Brown ever could have.

I thought I clicked on an old thread, it was 2004, and George Bush was running for President again.
