“Rand Paul cites Beethoven as one with imperfect DNA because of his premature deafness.
A few years ago, a person who bought a lock of Beethoven's hair at an auction had it analyzed, and the lab revealed that Beethoven's hair had excessive amounts of lead in it. Exposure to lead can cause deafness. Beethoven did not have faulty DNA; he was exposed to too much toxicity in his environment.
How does that sit with his Libertarian agenda?”

“We all have imperfect DNA. Maybe we can explain the libertarian actions by having to much lead in their body”

Is Lonagan saying that vandalism and shoplifting are not minor crimes? That is an indication of just how full prisons will become if he gets in power.”

“It leaves one wondering. Lonagan has become Corey's secret weapon to victory. Lonagan and the those who nominated this clown should be checking themselves into the state hospital for the incorrigibly insane.”

“I often see tip jars on the counter of restaurants when I pick up take out. Can anyone tell me if the counter people, who are essentially cashiers, are paid based on the standard minimum wage or the restaurant minimum wage? I feel guilty when I do tip there because I feel the boss may be keeping an eye on the jar and lower the workers' base salary if it gets too full.”

“When I worked in a restaurant as hostess I also took to-go orders and I was paid hourly. Any tips were mine to keep (we didn't tip share at my restaurant) but I never expected any and if I got a tip it would usually just be a couple of bucks.”

“You can't lower minimum wage below minimum wage. Corporations have removed tip jars to remove guilt over not tipping. No tip jar, no tip, more minimum wage.”
“The security footage in Boston was released in order for the public to help the FBI identify the suspects.
It is highly unlikely that the public would have had similar insights into the Libyan terrorists.”

“Why release them at all unless someone is trying to imply they were actually doing something.
BTW: I'd like to hear from the Commander (3 Star Admiral) of the US 6th Fleet which has been between Sicily and Libya. In it's list of strategic weapons is Combined Task Force 506 (Special Ops) which at most would have been 1 hour away on first notice. Look at a map mid point is 225 kms between Syracuse and Benghazi.
Another BTW: were these photos released to anyone? Have the US citizens from Benghazi in lock down been shown the photos? We will never know.

“It just goes to show that you sheeple don't follow your history lessons too well... Jerry already started the downward trend for California the first time he was Governor... But, then you already knew that, didn't you?”
It is a very conservative site that shows they are really mad about the cartoon, but, to me, there is nothing to be mad about. It makes clear that the incident was preventable, rather than an act of God.”

“I accidentally faved your comment when I wanted to reply.
I totally disagree with your #2 point. Children develop the ability to discern fantasy from reality at about age 7--which is why there are a lot more 6 year olds who believe in Santa Claus than there are 8 year olds, and why there is a rating for children's TV shows called "TY 7". If that is not development of cognitive reasoning, I don't know what is. And this is not even counting the number of times I was tricked by my son when he was a toddler!”

“Jill, The sophistication of political cognitive thinking isn't the same thing as the belief in Santa, Jesus, or the tooth fairy. At adult levels, cognitive thinking is the ability to form your own personal 'code' of acceptable views, while accumulating and reshaping those views as one acquires more information. The trouble comes when FACTS can't be easily integrated, and so must be DENIED!”
“Yes, he was heckled. You notice he did not turn all the way around to see the audience. His next statement was that no one had an answer for that question, and I do not believe he was looking for an answer. He meant the question rhetorically.
This was a hearing, which is a formal setting. That is why the moderator acted the way that he did.”
