“Not to mention the families and loved ones that may be killed or harmed by the bad guys who we traded for him. But then, we will probably never know precisely how many of them there may be.”

“"The issue is not about if Bergdahl was a deserter."

WOW. That is incredible. Thank you for your consoling words for the families of the good Soldiers who died trying to find and rescue him.”

“His comment had NOTHING to do with those families who lost loved ones. IN FACT...the very fact that we have brought him home means those families can get justice when he is tried and convicted of desertion.
So...let's be clear...bringing him back has NOTHING to do with him being a deserter or not...THAT is what the Military Court is for. Bringing him back has NOTHING to do with other families who lost loved ones.”

Many Scientists now saying that the Earth will cool for at least the next 25-30 years. Totally natural variation, been going on for hundreds of thousands of years most likely.

“So of the 3% of scientists that don't believe in AGW, you're siding with that tiny portion that actually believes we're cooling despite the incredibly obvious fact that we are measurably warmer every decade. Even most climate deniers don't believe that one. We actually should be cooling, but CO2 emissions have changed that trajectory dramatically. http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2013/12/the-global-temperature-jigsaw/

“Going to CSN for science news? Now that is a joke. CSN's headline makes a mockery of accurate reporting. Dr Don Easterbrook was a geology professor not a climatologist and his predictions of global cooling have been very far from accurate. if Easterbrook's predictions had been on the money we would now be experiencing cooler temperatures than in the nineteen seventies instead of temps in the top ten ever recorded.
When you say natural variation, can you please identify precisely which natural variation allows for a degree rise over hundred years when the natural cycles seldom seldom go faster than a third of that rate at their very fastest? Or perhaps you can explain what is "naturally" causing CO2 to rise a rate 25,000 times faster than the second fastest time in geologic history, at the end of the Permian Epoch?”

“Most of the comments posted here are ignorant. I may have to accept the fact that this Country is made up of groups with different agenda's, and [unfortunately ], none of the sides seem to want to even attempt to understand the other.

On the one hand, there are definitely so-called "Christians' who actually do show a hatred or animosity toward anyone who does not share their worldview. There are also a number who, although they are against gay marriage and homosexuality being promoted as 'just another lifestyle", do not actually hate Gay people. Many people who oppose Gay marriage do so out of the belief that "Marriage" was specifically created to unite Male and Female, not out of hatred.

Then you have the liberal and gay communities who define tolerance as "you must TOLERATE us, but we do not tolerate you. It is interesting when I come upon people who, for example say that the Bible is a "collection of Myths". If you ask them if they read it with an open mind, many say that they have not read it at all. Yet they deem qualified to critique it. Again, there are people with this Worldview who want to dialogue with people who disagree with them, however judging from what I see these folks are in a minority.

As long as people continue to look at the world in such concrete terms, with no inclination to at least try to see the other person's viewpoints, we are doomed.”

RLaitres on May 26, 2014 at 18:04:10

“"... but we do not tolerate you."

So, you admit that you are intolerant. Perhaps you confuse "tolerance" with approval. It is not at all the same thing. There are many thing which I don't like and of which I don't approve. Unless it actually is destructive (in fact and not in one's imagination), or if it is causes actual harm, I will tolerate it. As to the "Bible" to which some of you are so attached, what is unfortunate is that most are so intellectually weak that they are not able to draw the proper conclusions from the stories contained within it, so they take it literally. That would be the same thing as taking the fable of "The LIttle Engine that Could" literally. If you are an "expert" on that book you claim to believe int, here is your chance. What is the moral contained in the story or "fable" of the Garden of Eden? You should be capable of explaining it as it is not the only place it is mentioned in that book, as well as in other works?”

kaykaythere on May 26, 2014 at 17:10:44

“Look,

All gays ask is to be treated with the same exact rights as every other human being on the planet.

I can tolerate anyone until they demand THEY get to make rules over WHO I choose to include in my family. I will tolerate you until you make claim that because I am gay I cannot be a good Christian. I will tolerate you until you decide YOU are superior to me.

I REFUSE to TOLERATE someone denying me my RIGHT to be an equal human being. I REFUSE to tolerate someone else questioning MY FAITH. NO ONE in this COUNTRY should have to tolerate this.

The concept is quite simple.

If you don't like gay marriage DONT MARRY A GAY. IT IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.

Now tell what is so hard about that concept? Please explain it to me why ANYONE gets to CHOOSE the rights of others.”

"I made a mistake in presuming that the self-interests of organisations, specifically banks and others, were such that they were best capable of protecting their own shareholders and their equity in the firms," said Allen (Ayn Rand) Greenspan.”

Davey Williams on May 13, 2014 at 21:00:52

“I worked in the banking industry...your comments are erroneous. Lenders asked government to loosen regulations, which elected officials of both parties did. Homeowners asked the same, which elected officials of both parties did.

When a downturn came, we discovered that both lenders and buyers had lied, cheated amd broken every promise they made to lend/borrow responsibly. Lenders made bad loans, bad owners walked away in droves. Both parties felt the other needed to hear the burden of falling prices, amd in the end the taxpayers covered the costs.

But you know, continue making everything partisan and screaming back and forth...that works sooooooooo well for making policy and running a government.”

“it does not matter -- if something is morally wrong and violates someone's human right - no matter how many wish it - it is still wrong.
This is why there are Courts --- to interpret the law and the Constitution. The 14th Amendment says - No State shall make. or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the US; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process if law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
You could look it up.
When slavery ended, when segregation was banned, when interracial marriage was permitted as a civil right, when women were granted the right to vote.........these were acts of law and were not decided by popular vote or on a State by State vote. The majority cannot vote to deny right to a segment of the population - not in the USA.”

“Oh I agree he is free to express his opinion. He is also subject to the consequences of said speaking an opinion. If he doesn't like or accept those different from himself that is his privilege. He just needs to understand that freedom is a two-edge sword.

Wonder what he thinks of the GLBT*Q members of the military who fought in the past for his freedom and continue to do so today? Wonder if he thinks they are horrible as well?

I support his right to free speech. And I support the right of others to protest his views. I further support the Miami Dolphins effort to educate their employees on recognizing their bigotry and making an effort to understand they don't live under a rock.”

“With only one cup of coffee in me, I parse your comment out to be fully facetious. I surmise that your main concern is that this guy was expressing his opinion, and you support him saying anything that crosses his mind.

I benefited from a different level of tutelage, perhaps because I was in positions where I always represented from an early age.

We don't just express our opinion when we represent others outside of ourselves. We speak with an eye and ear to how what we say and do reflects on those we represent.

If you work a job, you cannot go spouting off on anything you want. If you do, you may run foul of how your employer wants those it associated with it to be portrayed.”

“Thanks for showing your ignorance. I am paying larger Medicaid taxes. Once the employer mandate kicks in, I will have to decide whether I can still afford to provide Health insurance to my employees.

And wait until people find out that the subsidies do not 'wind down' as income increases, due to people getting promotions, etc. Instead, they cut off at a certain level. Not to mention the much lower quality of care that will be provided, due to lower payments being made to Hospitals and Doctors.

This is why the employer mandate keeps getting pushed back. The charade that Obamacare is going to decrease costs while providing good healthcare to all can be maintained as long as possible. Anyone who can do simple Math and not blinded by this utopian idealism would be able to figure that out.”
