JJ, thanks for getting back to me. There's no catch in my questions. I was speaking of anybody who might vote straight down the line on the Democrat matter the history of the person they vote for..

Regarding Kitzhaber, I've read some of the comments here which showed the sentiment that his demise was wrapped around his hormonal attachment to Hayes and that she's...well...a gold digger. I was actually surprised that it came from people here on the forum who have only good things to say about all Democrats...except in this case.

No matter the political leader, could it be because people have such a high expectation of their politician that if they do something that crosses below that expectation threshold...that they turn against the politician? It seems to me there's too many that have dropped below the threshold and are still in office.

Couldn't be any worse than three Democrats in power. There needs to be balance...and with the current number of 3...there IS no balance.

...and that second marriage was before his FIRST inauguration as governor, BTW.

Curiosity led me to this question-filled comment -

To any here in the forum who considers themselves as tried and true Democrats, when it comes to former governor of Oregon, John Kitzhaber, why is it the first person blamed is his fiancee? He'd been married twice before (the second one just days before his inauguration), but apparently was doing his job just fine as governor, according to the popularity vote of the people. Mr. Kitzhaber was governor for three full terms and was elected for a fourth. He knew the ropes. He knew what he was doing and he also knew what his other half was doing.

Shouldn't he be held accountable for his mistakes in judgment rather than placing all the blame on Ms. Hayes???

Luv, after posting my last comment to vanwadreamer, I discovered that Nisqually Glacier on Mt. Rainier is actually advancing according to the USGS. Now the question it really growing or is it melting and becoming with less depth? That is something I'm actually researching...will probably continue tomorrow if I have spare time.

I'm thinking this is part of why there's so many discrepancies on the web regarding the increase in size versus the actual increase in density or possibly a decrease in overall size when it comes to global glaciers and the polar ice caps. I remember when last year, the news was stating the polar ice cap in the Arctic was expanding, but they were also stating it was thinner than in past years and were considering developing an arctic passageway for ships. Recently, there was a discussion on TV regarding large segments of Antarctica breaking off. Now I'm this a sign of advancing since it freezes over and leaves large fissures in the polar ice cap during summer months and is the ice getting thinner?

Another question...are the experts taking into account the time of year these studies are being done? Record snowfalls do temporarily affect the size of glaciers and the polar ice cap.

ARRRGH!!! Too much geographical science for a Friday night!!! Time to enjoy my evening with my hubby.

Vanwa, I first want to say, I am not doubting your opinion regarding global climate change and global warming, but I have conflicting information with our (un)trustworthy internet which shows certain glaciers actually shrinking since the data reported on the link you shared. According to one website (below), Roosevelt Glacier on Mt. Baker is shrinking an average of 14 meters per year...and that is as of 2012. Looks like you've brought this at least to my attention to the point that I'm going to try to find actual scientific data on the subject. If and when I do, I'll share it here on the forum.

The all-important basic food groups...hopefully meats which were never fed GMO's and USDA guaranteed organic with no GMO's. That's a good start...then making your own meals rather than buying prepackaged junk the big box marketeers love to push down our throats any time the television is on.

Any knucklehead with a lick of sense would know that climate CHANGE doesn't just mean planet warming. Maybe someone needs to send him the ol' Daniel Webster which explains the meaning of climate change.

Ignorance drives me up the wall.

Mmm...yummy! It's right up there with Butylated Hydroxytoluene and their supposed safe use in our food. Best to avoid anything with either ingredient in our food.

Check out the entire summary on propylene glycol.
