How is it a deflection? When the supposed leader of a movement doesn't stand by his own words with his actions, how much faith can one have in what he says?

He damages the movement by his lifestyle, pretty much like those tele-preachers who live high on the hog and then tell people they should send money to help the unfortunate.

Hypocrisy is it's own devil.....

Or is it just that it doesn't coincide with what he is trying to promote and it undermines the validity of the subject?
Even if I admitted hypocrisy which I don't how does it have anything to do with the issue? It's a deflection

And the profit prize in this particular subject goes those who write books and make movies by portraying themselves as experts. Even win a Nobel prize.

And those who receive large grants to study things that don't prove out in the long run. Thereby creating the need for money for more study.

And other nations who see an opportunity to scarf up a few more billions of US taxpayers money by agreeing to do something in 20 or so years. Long after the dollars have been spent.

If the purported 'leader' of a movement doesn't support (by his actions) the very subject he's promoting, why would you have faith in the subject as being true?

Do your own research.... find out for yourself what is or is not happening, instead of trusting what someone like this says.

Can't you people stop the about this "deflection" and continue to keep .

Like any of haven't used this trick even if only while ing.

Why can't we take a hint for the shooting earlier today by that nut case and his political hatred.

Both parties are ,making moves to close the wide gap they created themselves. So let's do some of that here, I hope we are able..

Sure one can keep up the attacks but don't make it about any members. Beside that is a posting rule.

First you don't know what he does. I watched him addressing this the other day and his answer seemed fine to me. And why is Gore the purported leader? He is simply a concerned American. He just happens to have a bigger presence. I am done with this diversion. Stay on the topic.

DELINGPOLE: Global Warming Study Cancelled Because of 'Unprecedented' Ice



What isn't funny Mr.Liberty is the fact for any issues there is both a pro and con online to it. Seems so many have this need to back one or the others despite what seems to be proof of that these issues are real..

Like you I also think aliens have visited earth.. Yet I have no proof of it. Nore do I see much to make a true believer.

But unlike those on TV making a living talking about them with what ever proof they feel is real I find it hard to buy into their theory's.

Yet this is but my opinion which is for me alone unless I decide to share it. Without wanting to change others thoughts or opinions. Unlike some do here.

I start with keep you're own opinion this is to make all aware and accept it or not..
Maybe not in these words but each knows what I am say. Then comes a few with this is how to think period!
