i want to help a charity that helps people reach the point where they can stand on their own two feet

goodwill does job training
and they provide low cost items particularly clothing to people who can't hardly afford new clothes
its a nice charity if you ask me
i like goodwill
Dude...

Hate to break it to you bro, but that charity isn't such a great choice.

It should be pointed out that I believe the foodstamp programs are a little more involved than just simply signing up. I would think most people here don't have an issue with foodstamps and other social welfare systems as temporary bridges to help people get back on their feet, so to speak.

And, yes, there are people who use them in that manner. I can speak from personal experience.

The problem I think most people have - and I think most conservative or libertarian leaning people tend to stereotype - is those that make foodstamps and social welfare a permanent part of their budget.

Like with many of the things some of us rail against, it is not the system but the unpunished abuses.

In truth, not really. The Little Ice Age remains for the present the subject of speculation. The most likely influence during this period is variable output from the sun combined with pronounced volcanic activity. We know that from the end of the LIA to the 1950s the sun’s output increased. But since WW2 the sun has slowly grown quieter, yet the temperature on Earth has gone up.

The sceptical argument that current warming is a continuation of the same warming that ended the LIA is unlikely. There is a lack of evidence for a suitable forcing (e.g. the sun) and numerous correlations with known natural forcings that can account for the LIA itself, and the subsequent climate recovery. Taken in isolation, the LIA might cast doubt on the theory of climate change. Considered alongside the empirical evidence, model predictions and a century of scientific research into the climate, recovery from the LIA is not a plausible theory to explain the observed evidence and rate of global climate change.
The articles pretty clearly were debunking "skeptic"s arguments Foogy.

(Edit) Oh ----, I'm LMAOing. I confused Foogy for Jared.

It's interesting to see how De Beers pioneered modern political discourse and campaigning.

Good for us, bad for the gov't. Whoda thunk?

P.S. Santorum claims we have no such rights as noted in the above article.

Oh this is absolutely hilarious. Santorum blames the Catholic Church's pedophilia problem on liberalism. And our right to privacy.
