Exxon Mobil Proves How Wrong They Are About Global Warming 

You're on the wrong side of history when you have to make anonymous videos attacking movies based on the best scientific evidence of the day. Exxon Mobil should have its tail between its legs over this crap.

Where did that video spoofing Gore's film come from?
In an email exchange with The Wall Street Journal, Toutsmith didn't answer when asked who he was or why he made the video, which has just over 59,000 views on YouTube. However, computer routing information contained in an email sent from Toutsmith's Yahoo account indicate it didn't come from an amateur working out of his basement.

 Instead, the email originated from a computer registered to DCI Group, a Washington, D.C., public relations and lobbying firm whose clients include oil company Exxon Mobil Corp.

A DCI Group spokesman declines to say whether or not DCI made the anti-Gore penguin video, or to explain why Toutsmith appeared to be sending email from DCI's computers.

 "DCI Group does not disclose the names of its clients, nor do we discuss the work that we do on our clients' behalf," says Matt Triaca, who heads DCI's media relations shop.

Sean Hannity Can't Stand a Free Press 

Amazing. Sean Hannity kicked people out of his event for being . . . Americans. At least, that seems to be the case since they didn't do anything to justify being removed as far as I can tell. Why is Sean Hannity afraid of debate? If he truly believes the crap he spews, wouldn't he welcome a debate?

Be sure to watch the video at the link below.

But don't read, watch what 'Freedom" means to Sean Hannity and his ilk...

Dan Savage Breaks Down the Irrational Arguments of Heterosexuals 

Live Savage, I can't understand why people are threatened by providing equality of other humans living in this country. Will hetrosexual couples refuse to marry and procreate if homosexuals can marry? Who could possibly say yes?

Same-Sex Marriage Wins by Losing - New York Times
When my widowed grandfather remarried in his 60’s, he wasn’t seeking to further the well-being of his children, who were grown and out of the house. He was seeking the security, companionship and legal rights that marriage provides. The survival of humankind was the furthest thing from his mind.

These defeats have demoralized supporters of gay marriage, but I see a silver lining. If heterosexual instability and the link between heterosexual sex and human reproduction are the best arguments opponents of same-sex marriage can muster, I can’t help but feel that our side must be winning. Insulting heterosexuals and discriminating against children with same-sex parents may score the other side a few runs, but these strategies won’t win the game.
