Americans Care More About Gay Marriage Than Global Warming

Another example of the idiotic priorities of the average american ...


Quote:
Pollster American Environics studied American attitudes toward energy and the environment and found depressing results:

1) Americans overwhelmingly believe that global warming is occurring.
2) They don't care. "dealing with global warming" came 20th out of 23 policy priorities.
3) They won't give anything up. The cost of energy is more important than global warming.

As the graph shows, 69 percent of the public is prepared to overlook disagreement about the environment and there are six issues that rate ahead of the environment in terms of the number of people who consider them dealbreakers.

You're getting "Americans" mixed with "Corporations".

Mercedes. BMW. Sennheiser. Not sure if they're corporations, but they ARE companies.

Yes. Yes it was. Well, the first post was off the top of my head (which I made up. It's most likely not a real company).

The second post was probably off the mid-top of my head.

The key point is that no (or at least very few) European companies fit the steriotypical "corporation" that we all have come to know and love.

And apparently, the word "company" doesn't have any legeal meaning, so they're all corporations.

I know what you mean. The amount of money being tied up in issues like gay marriage and abortion are enormous, so it only makes sense that they are the foremost concerns.

Americans Care More About Gay Marriage Than Global Warming
Only the ones slipping away from their Republican senate offices where they crusade against gay marriage, to give blowjobs to other men in public restrooms, or slip away from their families to do Meth and have unprotected sex with male prostitutes in a hotel room before they write their next sermon railing against homosexuality. Or as seen here on the cloud young repressed men of questionable sexuality who transfer their deep seated self loathing to strike out against "fags who should die of Aids!" The rest of us live our lives and are concerned about real issues like the illegal war we are in, and this administrations constant erosion of our freedoms, and let others live theirs. because it is none of our business what other consenting adults do in their bedrooms.

And then there are the ones still obsessing over all the terrible things that Rush told them Clinton did all those years ago... Take a bow dim bulbs.

Thumbs up

Americans Care More About Gay Marriage Than Global Warming.

Americans are spot on - Gore is a fake. Canadian monkeys worship fake deities of climate pollution - running far from the real pollution. They're Hamas dick suckers and pathetically jealous of America.


NON-CANADIAN NEWS:


Details of Hamas Torture Revealed


(IsraelNN.com) Methods of torture used by Hamas terrorists against Fatah supporters have been revealed by the Palestinian Center for Human Rights. It disclosed that Hamas Executive Forces arrested 15 people because of their participation in a Fatah-sponsored prayer service and rally. One victim said she was violently beaten and suffered fractures to her hand and jaw.

In another arrest the same day, Hamas blindfolded and beat people. "During the interrogation, they violently beat me and hit my head to the wall until I fainted," one person told the human rights group. "They also cut my hair... They hanged me with a cord, and started to beat me violently until I fainted again. Later, they took me to a toilet and ordered me to clean it with my hands. They forced me to sign a document pledging not to cause chaos or insult Hamas, and then released me."
