Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    From 1950 to 1996 there was a trend.
    Something happened in the 1990s. Hard to call anything since then a trend.

    Written 12:55 PM CST 11/7/2012. Thanks for the stocks rednecks. Did a little re-allocation today. I’ll sell ‘em back to you in a couple years. Hope you’re working in the mean time.
