“"Women, don't let them use you," she said. "Unless you choose to be their political pawn or just their piece of accessory on their arm. Honey, that's not liberation, that's subjugation, and this sisterhood fights against that."
“A state ban on same sex marriage is a violation of the guarantee to equal protection under the law, as granted by Section 1 of the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution. A refusal to recognize marriages performed in other states is a violation of Article IV, Section 1 of the US Constitution.
Maybe you should try reading this important legal document before you declare which laws people must and must not follow, you ignorant bigot.”
“Because the rules are that the first name is the correct one. Personally, I think that the rules need changing, but they are what they are.”

“This does not always happen. The original name of America was designated only to South America, other people mistakenly started calling the northern continent America also.
The names San Juan and Puerto Rico were originally reversed. Puerto Rico was named because of the rich natural port and San Juan was the name of the island.
So I agree, rules are not set in concrete and should be set aside sometimes.”

“Allen, Allen, Allen. If science was even vaguely important to us Visigoth Americans, the most important issue in the daily news and in our every-day political discussions would be the development of clean affordable energy. Everything else is pretty much just a rehash of the four elements: Earth, air, fire, and water.
Cara Santa Maria is one of the best bloggers at HuffPo, and is the only decent source on science issues they have.”

“It's still not 'new' news. Elsewhere today it was breathlessly announced that the earth was "way, way" older than previously thought. And then it noted the earth's age was calibrated about 1% older than previously estimated (and still within the previous MOE).”

“And the article wasn't scientific. It was a childish, twitter level, simplistic recap of nothing science news worthy. You may be right, she may be the closest thing they have to a "decent source." However, that's damning with faint praise.”
“Give me a break. Pointing out that there are a group of people in this country that actively seek out reducing the amount of critical thinking we teaching our children is not the same as throwing around racial epithets. The fact is that the anti-science crowd *are* rooted in a fantasy.”
“So what happens when Scott Walker is arrested for his involvment in all the embezzlement that has been going on since he took office?”

“How many governors from Illinois are currently sitting in prison? The previous two who were also Democrats. George Washington was right about the downside of a two party system as both parties care more about their own party than they do about the nation as a whole. Go check out www.unionfacts.com or laborpains.org to find out what the unions don't want you to know, and that is how bad they're ripping off their own members.”

“It won't happen - you and your lib buddies will try that too - time to let go - let Walker do his job now - watch all the good things that happen in Wisconsin. maybe, you just don't want good things to happen - who knows.”
“"He went through pre-med followed by 4 years of chiropractic college."
So... not a doctor.”

“If you are awarded a doctorate, then you are a doctor. There are doctors of philosophy, doctors of education, etc.
Did you really think the only doctor was a MD? Wow...that is all I can say.”

“Not an MD, a DC. Yes there is a difference, A DC doesn't prescribe medication or do surgery, but they know how the body works and they do help it to function better to avoid things like medication and surgery.”
“Because the more gay celebrities come out the more normal it is. Read the quote from Zachary Quinto (number 5 in the slideshow): "...it became clear to me in an instant that living a gay life without publicly acknowledging it -- is simply not enough to make any significant contribution to the immense work that lies ahead on the road to complete equality."
There is a marked generation gap in the area of support for gay rights. This is because younger generations are more likely to know someone who is gay or be a fan of a gay celebrity”
