Something that happened during the 1970's due to humans spewing aerosols into the atmosphere. Once we stopped spewing aerosols into the atmosphere, global cooling stopped, thus proving that human society CAN affect global climate. The concern over global cooling was exaggerated by Newsweek in the 1970's and as a result many conservatives completely distort the issue in order to attack the current scientific consensus on global warming.

That they do this based on a Newsweek article is bizarre considering that most of the time they complain about how the mainstream media distorts the news. Of course, in this instance Newsweek just so happened to NOT be distorting the news for some reason. At least according to many conservatives.
I'm sick and tired of hearing right-wing talk radio show hosts continuing to distort the global cooling of the 1970's.

people who KNOW that the Holocaust happened but just like to say that it didn't all because they're just anti-semitics assholes
Ever noticed how Holocaust deniers usually also tend to be anti-zionists. It's no coincidence. Holocaust denial is a result of anti-semitism.

A government ecomomic plan in which taxes are lowered on the wealthy so that they have incentives to do things with the extra money they would have would lead it to 'trickle down' to the middle and lower classes.

For example, the wealthy might use the extra money to expand their businesses or buy more shares in the stock market, thus expanding the economy and providing more jobs for those in the middle and lower classes.

The wealthy might also spend the extra money on more goods and services, thus providing the middle and lower classes with more work.

Probably the most significant stream of money trickling down is from the extra money that the wealthy put in banks. Because there is more money in banks, there is more money for the middle and lower classes to borrow for buying houses and starting and expanding businesses.

Many liberals like to attack trickle down economics as an unfair benefit to the wealthy. Their mistake is that they ignore the idea of the "invisible hand" that is implicitly behind the idea for such an economic policy. Trickle down economics is good because it inevitably leads to more jobs and money for the middle and lower classes and to an expanding economy.
Liberals should actually take a class in macroeconomics before they start complaining about trickle down economics.
