Man, I knew I should of stayed in bed. Just a couple of quick points:

As a Vietnam Combat Vet I can tell ya there are no atheists in a fox hole.

I'm just a dumb guitar picker, but if I remember 6th grade science learning that the earth constantly goes thru periods of cooling and warming.

I seem to remember back in the late 70's & 80's they were warning us a new ice age!?? What happened?

Last point follow the money: Mr. Gore & others have made millions off global warming all the while flying around in their private jets.

While in college I helped organized the first earth day & pushed for the formation of an ecology dept. Also help start a farmer's market. I own 1 car a Ford Focus so I'm not a red neck as some may think.

Now I really got to take a nap!

It's been said the Dinosaurs literally farted so much they caused global warming and started the ice age. Funny how some young uns refer to us golden oldies as Dinosaurs...

A lot of the problems come from methane gas which has been created by all of the "old farts" farting.

In a poll published by the Daily Mail last April , only 30% of Britons have a faith. 13% were Atheists . 53% said they had no religion and the remainder were "don't knows"
It's a very personal thing ,God & religion and I really don't know if this is the place to debate it.
With all due respect I have my reasons for being a non-believer. If you have faith, good for you, I have no intention or desire to try to change your beliefs.

Yes Wayfinder mate . I think most of us grasp the concept . Joking is a coping mechanism for the very harsh realities of life ! 

Did you really sat the Atheists should start praying? LOL ! When ? When Hell freezes over ? ;-)

Snowed In Blizzard Blues

Moved to Maryland from way up North.

Crossed over that Mason Dixon Line to warm my toes.

Al Gore said the polar caps were melting.

Yeah Crazy Al said those polar caps are melting.

And like a fool I believed it was so.

I’ve got those snowed in blizzard blues –Damn it’s getting cold.

 Yeah those snowed in blizzard blues –Damn it’s getting cold.

Comment by Pete Turner on February 2, 2016 at 9:11am

Yeah, and where is Al Gore hiding? I moved to Maryland years ago from New England. I was told that it hardly ever snowed and when it did it melted in a couple of days. Well let me tell ya the biggest snow storms I've ever seen have been in Maryland!

Comment by Bristol Blue on February 1, 2016 at 10:58pm
