In other news, a NOAA report released yesterday brought more bad news concerning global climate change.
It should be noted that a number of congressmen are currently trying to cut funding for NOAA and increase funding for severe weather warning systems in their home states instead.
Also — here’s Senator Tom Harkin dishing harsh reality.
“I’m not naming any names, but one senator got up from a southern state and said, ‘Well, you’ve got to understand that to my people down here, Obama seems like he’s exotic,’” Harkin told the newspaper. “That he’s just exotic, he doesn’t share our values.”
Asked if he could name another American era as polarizing as today, Harkin said “Sure — the Civil War.”
