    Our governor was explaining why Global Warming was so important and was listing some of the things that are going to happen.

    This is very important to Baptists and all Christians as a matter of fact.

    He declared that there was going to be an increase in salamenella. He went on to explain that potato salad was going to get warmer sooner at the picnics and will be going bad faster.

    Now you know, you have been warned, cut those carbon emissions or we will be in danger of bad potato salad. :thumbs:

    Which is a big problem for Baptists. That is a prime side dish w/ fried chicken.

    Why is it particularly important for Baptists/Christians? (If it's part of an American joke, then sorry for not getting it - perhaps in America baptists, or Christians generally, are renowned for their fondness for potato salad :) ).

    Whether or not global warming is taking place, can it be right not to be in any way concerned about doing damage to the world? Pumping out noxious gases into the atmosphere, indiscriminate and careless disposal of waste products, and the like are surely bad for other reasons than possible global warming.

    It is an American "joke." Baptist churches in America often will bring food to church to eat together and potato salad, along with fried chicken, are noted staples at these get togethers.

    Thanks, and sorry to all Americans! No, not sorry that you like potato salad - I love it too. :laugh: But I know how annoying it can be when a joke has to be explained.

    This is the same governor that allowed illegal aliens to get drivers licenses for years - people were flying in from Florida and all over to get an OR dl so they could go home and get one there.

    This is the same governor that ordered OR to follow CA car emission standards - when EPA said our air was fine.

    This is the same governor that set a global warming council and declared that we were going to cut ALL carbon emissions by 75 percent - does all mean breathing too? :tonofbricks:

    I could go on but I think yoiu get the idea of this guy.
