Watchdog: Comey violated FBI policies in handling of memos

It just amazes me that we needed a full on investigation to prove what we all knew in 2016. Now every investigation he was involved in (3-on Hillary) comes under question.

Rbear..."Trying to continue this more with you is like arguing with a brick wall."
Ditto, you will not believe anything but the extremes and your posts prove that. I say, if this is actually happening, it has happened before. Prime example: Sahara desert used to be Brazil.

Rbear..."What we do know is that not doing anything could result in tens of thousands dying from famine due to diminished crop harvests."
NO! We do not KNOW this. IF, something happens, other parts that are heating up, will become the new areas that food is planted and harvested. Extreme colds will become more temperate.

Rbear..."...that we know how to slow this down..."
I get sick and tired of all the doomsday idiots like you. Everything you said in the first paragraph is true, the problem is that none of it is known to be caused by "climate change." If (and that is a big IF) "we," figure you mean the democrats, already know how to slow this down and that we should slow it down, then why have they not implemented this wonderful solution? The reason is because the world will not follow and it (meaning the so-called "solution") will have to be funded (again) by the United States. If we eliminated the use of ALL fossil fuels tomorrow and ALL greenhouse gas emissions in the United states tomorrow, it would cause a small blip. On top of that small blip, tens of thousands of POOR people would die.

Rbear..."but the acceleration caused by human effect is something we are not even close to preparing for..."
The problem is that your statement is not based on fact, but speculation. We can only speculate. And, when we do, we must speculate that we should even do anything about the situation. We do not know, whether we can or should do anything. Maybe a warmer climate will be better for humans and plant life and the earth's hysteresis will correct the warming at some point. WE JUST DON'T KNOW.

Did not say "it is not human related." I said we do not know how MUCH is human related, whether we can do anything to reverse it or whether we should do anything to reverse it. The earth has a way of naturally taking care of itself. Plant life supports mammal life and vice versa. The ocean takes care of CO2 and the ice is melting to allow more to be absorbed. There has to be a hysteresis effect, otherwise when we hit the first ice age, we would have stayed frozen. However, we didn't. When we warmed the first time, it would have kept warming until uninhabitable, but it didn't. I have an advanced engineering degree in electrical and computer engineering as well as a JD, but that has nothing to do with common sense, which none of you "progressives" have.

Packman's Question:
How do you propose to reverse this trend with your proposal supported by credible data? How do you define and measure success?
Who's response:
Hey, wacky Packy, contrary to your wacky beliefs, crickets don't expose anything but themselves. Crickets don't enlighten us about anything. The scientific method does, but you and your crickets have no concept of that.
ABSOLUTELY NO ANSWER!!! Just a response to the side note about f-ing crickets. They avoid the question when given to them packman, because they have no answers. They just want to "feel" good about their responses. They cannot and will not tell us that there is anything we can do. This is the same crap they spout about mass shootings, without any evidence that anything they do will have one iota of an effect on the so-called problem. Fix or work to fix things within our control. Not some asinine theory of CO2 equals man bad or AW = mass shootings. It is a bunch of "feel-good" people that do nothing they talk about.

BRADLEY R. GITZ: When politicians lie

Rbear..."It seems that everyone, aside from a few Trump nuts, commenting thus far agrees Trump lies."
*** (There I fixed your spelling error, dumba$$)
Whataboutism! Constantly! Instead of addressing what is in the article, you go to what about Trump.

Who..."Over those thousands of years if it had been warming at the accelerating rate it has since the '70s, our planet earth would have been uninhabitable long before now."
This is a lie and has been disproven on many occasions. Actually, the latest data shows that over the last decade there has been a decline.
