“I understand why the Ukranian leaders rejected the E.U deal. It was NOT a good deal for their future. The Russian offer was much more generous. What we have here is a clash of cultures, the young people wanting to be hip and "European" no matter what the consequences for their country. I understand why the grown-ups in Ukraine see it differently. Russia, right now is probably more "hip" than France/Italy/Spain (economically and culturally, by far). Do the Ukranian young people want to join the ranks of the unemployed youth in Europe? Be patient is what I would recommend. Siding with the new Russia would be a better deal for them, right now. Doesn't mean that they willl be forever Russian-linked, but that right now it is a better option. Russia today isn't the old Soviet Union. Putin isn't going to be President-for-Life, if the young people work at it.”

“Bernique, I respectfully suggest that you read The History of Ukraine and then see what results linking their lives to Russia (forcefully) ensued. Russia is Russia ..... it is no different today than it was in the tsarist and soviet days. A leopard doesn't change his spots.”

Heracles on Dec 1, 2013 at 21:08:49

“Russia is on the road to becoming a government run by a dictator if it isn't already. When citizens are murdered for speaking out against the regime, you are no longer a democracy. Putin's ego will not allow himself to relinquish power. It's just a matter of time before you see what is happening in Kiev happening in Saint Putinsburg.”

“Yeah, the Ukrainians should forget centuries of Russian imperialism, exploitation and genocide and get with the 'hip' cool cats of Moscow ...”

“Really,
You know a lot about hydraulic fracturing do you?
What would be the parting pressure in the Madison formation at say 5000' in the Big Horn Basin?
What formations are above and below? And what would their permeability be? Porosity has to be considered . Vertical or horizontal fractures have to be taken into account.

Is our President a "neo-liberal", one who has drunk the Chicago School of Economics koolaid, a thought that government is always bad (huh schools, bridges, clean air, clean water, clean soil), and one that always gives corporations the green light no matter how bad they have behaved (BP in our Gulf, Chevron in Ecuador, god-knows-who in Nigeria, a litany of greed-driven catastrophes.

“So there was impetus to get the windmills installed, Wilma, then the funding for maintaining them "dried up". Sounds like profit-making utilities couldn't tolerate the notion, and applied pressure on local politicians to stop funding them (the renewables), because they would operate at a fraction of the cost of existing, "conventional" (fossil-fuel) utilities. Right, Wilma?

“What does it matter? Isn't the law of the land separation of church and state? State does include the judiciary, at all levels.”

johnpw41042 on Nov 8, 2013 at 20:34:21

“There are many Christians who ignore the "separation of church and state" part of things. Those same type of Christians have no problem trying to impose their religious beliefs upon others and then if those others resist that they are somehow persecuting the Christians. By not allowing Christians to impose their religious beliefs upon them they are somehow discriminating against the Christians. If I don't want to hear some Christian preach a sermon and that is discrimination, then so be it. I admit it, I discriminate against forms of Christianity that I don't agree. I choose not to participate in the type of Christianity that impose upon others or persecutes others for being themselves.”

“Initially, the US was a Christian country and proudly so. . .years have eroded that position - and hasn't really benefited our country. The more we deny God and Christian values, the faster we are falling into chaos.”
