Bill Ayers states in print that Barack Obama is a liar;

anyone but True Believers actually surprised?
In promoting his new book, "Public Enemy", Ayers' publisher, Beacon Press, has written a blurb on that says Ayers "finally 'confesses' that he did write 'Dreams From My Father.' "

Anti-gun reasoning: "If they put up a sign I disagree with, I'll just steal it."

"The science on global warming/climate change/AGW is SETTLED!" My ass it is.
Global warming has been blamed for every recent catastrophe including wildfires in America even when they have been started by human activity, Hurricane Sandy, and even for the recent rash of cold spells that have descended upon much of the world.

However, even in the midst of their support for the theory, they appear to have acknowledged there are serious issues with claiming that record cold winters are the result of global warming. In the 1990s, they frequently made calls for governments to take steps to issue regulations to curtail “global warming.” However, they now generally do not use the phrase any longer, instead calling on combating “climate change.”

It is unclear exactly how that is supposed to happen since the very definition itself means that if the weather changes from one day to the next that is climate change.

However, scientists are now beginning to rethink their climate change models and are seriously discussing the possibility the earth is entering into a period of global cooling.

Leftists are so fond of trotting out Galileo when they want to make points, but according to their legend about Galileo*, the Church essentially told him to STFU under pain of excommunication or worse, because "they took a vote and the science was settled."

*I have read dissenting views of the result of his meeting with the Church "science committee", and a competing claim is the committee agreed with Galileo but wanted him to suppress his findings because to throw them out to an unprepared public would be unsettling to said public (that may be yet another falsehood, but considering that the real argument with Columbus was about the diameter of the Earth, not its shape, I am prepared to believe that there is some truth to this alternative claim).

And re: "Dreams of My Father". "Being There" wasn't supposed to be prophesy!
