    Miami finally finding out what causes their city to be going underwater.

    GOP lawmaker says rocks falling into ocean to blame for rising sea levels

    A Republican lawmaker on the House Science, Space and Technology Committee said Thursday that rocks from the White Cliffs of Dover and the California coastline, as well as silt from rivers tumbling into the ocean, are contributing to high sea levels globally.
    Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) made the comment during a hearing on technology and the changing climate, which largely turned into a Q&A on the basics of climate research.
    Thank God we have these GOP legislators to help us understand science and technology.....

    Friction is caused by tiny little creatures pushing against surfaces wherever they touch. My ninth grade textbook said so. Of course, that was an example of a falsified hypothesis....

    You ever notice how when your ice cubes melt in your glass it makes your drink overflow? Anybody?



    I am going to call out Mo Brooks as a liar and deceiver, there is no way he actually believes the tripe he is spewing to his uneducated and gullible base.

    Brooks was born in 1954 in Charleston, South Carolina[4] and moved to Huntsville, Alabama in 1963. His mother, Betty J. (Noland) Brooks, taught economics and government for over twenty years at Lee High School, while he attended Grissom High School. His father, Morris Jackson "Jack" Brooks, was raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee,[5] and worked as an electrical engineer before retiring from Redstone Arsenal's Meteorology Center.[6] They still live in Madison County, Alabama.[7]
    Brooks graduated from Grissom High School in 1972. He graduated from Duke University in three years with a double major in political science and economics, with highest honors in economics.[8] Brooks later received his J.D. degree from the University of Alabama School of Law in 1978.[
    Playing dumb as political theater seems to be very popular right now amongst the GOP establishment politicians.

    Well, tell 'em to stop peeing in the water!!

    When I was growing up, we had some family friends with a big pool. They had a sign on their pool. It read as follows:

    We Don't Swim In Your Toilet! So Please Don't Pee In Our Pool!
    Thanks from StanStill

    They were afraid that would cause their pool to overflow, see?
