95% of climate models since 1979 over-estimated warming. Not that this is news to anyone who's been paying attention. If the models were honestly designed to represent climate by scientists with no political agenda, there would be just as many low estimates as high estimates, right?

Obama delays Obamacare mandate again... or further. He's delayed so many features of Obamacare nobody can say for sure whether this one is another delay, a further delay, or some other kind of unilateral illegal contradiction of the original legislation. The United States of America is now ruled by imperial fiat, not the law. Every time he pulls this sort of stunt it's a slap in the face of Congress but most members of Congress are too stupid to comprehend the insult.

Here's another difference: Jews are a law-abiding industrious asset to whatever country they inhabit—Muslims are the opposite.
