Tennessee denialists hard at work:
Antievolution legislation in Tennessee

* February 11th, 2011

House Bill 368 (PDF), introduced in the Tennessee House of Representatives on February 9, 2011, is the sixth antievolution bill introduced in a state legislature in 2011, and the first introduced in Tennessee since 2007. The bill, if enacted, would require state and local educational authorities to "assist teachers to find effective ways to present the science curriculum as it addresses scientific controversies" and permit teachers to "help students understand, analyze, critique, and review in an objective manner the scientific strengths and scientific weaknesses of existing scientific theories covered in the course being taught." The only examples provided of "controversial" theories are "biological evolution, the chemical origins of life, global warming, and human cloning." The sole sponsor of HB 368 is Bill Dunn (R-District 16), who, according to Project Vote Smart, answered yes to the question “Should Tennessee require its public schools to teach evolution as theory rather than scientific fact?” in 1996 — the same year in which the Tennessee legislature considered a bill (SB 3229/HB 2972) that would have provided for the suspension or dismissal of any teacher or administrator who taught evolution as a fact rather than a theory.

Still no comment on John P. Holdren's quotes where he's calling for deindustrialization, global government, and redistribution of our wealth?
He's still looking for a source to plagiarize for a response. :lol:

I didn't realize Holdren is to be taken seriously. I guess he is amongst those who dwell in conspiracy theory like yourself and Kramer.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Then why would Obama appoint him as his science advisor? To be told a bunch of meaningless BS?

No, he is amongst a number of prominent liberals who are saying these things that foment those thoughts from people like me. If your side didn't say these things, I wouldn't have any reasons to think them.

Why don't you write Obama and ask him?

:ROFL:

This coming from someone who accuses me of being someone else.

That's confirmation to me that you're intellectually in over your head.

I saw similarities in your writing style to those other persons but didn't say anything. Then you gave yourself away with your (I think it was Jim Leher?) comment.

I suppose we should take you at your word after it looks like you might have plagiarized somebody else's writing, right? LOL.
And BTW, this isn't the first time that I saw writing from you that didn't look like it was yours. About a year or so ago you wrote something that didn't sound like it was from you. A quick search verified my suspicions.
