“Rachel is a graduate of standford university with a Degree in public policy and she is a RHodes scholar and has a PhD in political science from Oxford University. I think these credentials are impressive and most important that she knows her stuff... your post makes you sound jealous that she is smarter than you...”

“I am laughing so hard I can't stand it. Over a week later, people are still writing me to tell me that Rachel is a Rhodes scholar, has a PhD and went to Oxford. You missed the part about the Walter Cronkite and other awards. You people are so blinded by credentials that you don't use the brains you have to think without Maddow.”

“... you are the one who made the claim that people can survive a crash from FA of 35,000 feet. My point was that NO ONE can survive a crash from that altitude hitting the water... Regardless, of what happened to the plane i was only pointing out your generalization that is untrue... Who said i know the facts about this plane, but i do know the facts about the physics of a plane crash from FA of 35,000 feet as I have worked plane crashes both into water and onto land....”

“"you are the one who made the claim that people can survive a crash from FA of 35,000 feet"... In fact not once did I say that. What I said was, "People could be out there and they need help and their family and friends need closure (either good or bad)". That does not say anything about a crash. That was your assumption. Your entire rebuttal was based on YOUR assumption and interpretation of what 1 sentence meant. I'm not stupid and certainly don't need to "take a psychics class". I am very aware that plummeting 35,000 feet into unforgiving waters would certainly kill those people but so far there is no evidence of a crash. My entire point was that speculation at that point (and this one) aren't going to help and that there could be people from that plane that need to be saved. Saved from a hijacking, not from a crash. I'm sorry you took my comment wrong but now I hope you understand.”

“You are assuming it crashed and so far again, no evidence to support that. For all WE know it was hijacked and the radar was disabled but that is just one possible answer. Take a pill, calm down and quit acting like you know that facts. In all honesty it probably did crash and all those poor people are dead but until there is actual evidence to support your little condescending opinion it is just that, an OPINION.”

“drug runners? if they were running drugs, they would not blow up the plane... plus the plane was heading to china, where they are OCD in checking incoming planes for drugs once they land...i would think it would be too risky for drug runners to check in luggage or themselves { swallowing drug balloons) when they are NOT on a direct flight..”

ivlichelle on Mar 10, 2014 at 14:07:44

“As of right now, no one knows for sure what happened or if they were even involved. Sketchy people fly on planes all the time, but that doesn't mean all of them want / intend to blow up the plane.

As a connecting flight, the luggage would probably not have been checked, but simply loaded from one plane to the next. They only care what is coming into the country, but if its not leaving the airport and heading right back out again, they may not be as diligent. Considering their connecting flights its seeming less likely that they actually intended to take down the plane, but again we won't know for sure until we do. No one is claiming this as a terrorist attack, and terrorists are usually pretty quick to brag about their work.”

Barry Black on Mar 9, 2014 at 19:42:19

“You have to read the reports with some comprehension. The two individuals with stolen passports were booked through to Amsterdam. Their baggage would go right onto the connecting flight-----the Chinese are not concerned what happens in Holland!”

“who said anything about our budget being balanced.. if it was balanced this state would be in a better financial position. as far as who created all the mess in the first place, that was on the GOP governor's term of office... ONCe again what individual cities do to their budgets doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the state attorney general's office... these 3 cities { i stand corrected,] had mismanagement by their top officials and in the case of Stockton, who was hit severely by the foreclosure crisis and lost millions in property tax revenue, while putting millions in a failed attempt to expand their waterfront area all at once instead of in segments to see if the improvements were actually bringing in increased revenues. When does that failed plan by a independent city become the fault of the state of california?...”

spameggsausageandspam on Mar 9, 2014 at 13:40:56

“Who said anything about a balanced budget?

That would be the state Assembly and Legislature. They so righteously believed they did their job, that they sued fellow Democrat state controller Chiang over it:

http://blogs.sacbee.com/capitolalertlatest/2012/01/california-lawmakers-to-sue-controller-john-chiang-over-pay-issue.html

Of course, they were wrong in 2012 and 2013 and they will be wrong this year. The state is spending money it doesn't have and borrowing to pretend it balanced the budget.

I'll repeat my question to you:

Care to explain how our 'balanced budget' is consistently running monthly cash deficits in the billions that force Chiang to borrow to pay ongoing state expenses like payroll?

Try to focus.”

“You know it was Jerry Brown who was the state Atty General when these bankruptcies were developing, yes?

I'm guessing you didn't know.

You're interested in facts, are you? Here are some facts from John Chiang's website. You'll like him. He's a Democrat, but he's also by all accounts, doing an excellent job.

“My sister is a journalist snd she LOVES Rachel Maddow and she considers Maddow to be a full fledged journalist... Rachel is VERY smart and probably smarter than you... She works on a lot of social issues off the air and she does her homework, unlike faux news, the channel you watch..”

GC1008 on Feb 25, 2014 at 09:28:58

“Hopefully your sister didn't get her journalist fact checking from you. Tell me, which channels do I watch and how did you know? Ah... you assumed. Nancie, grow up and start thinking for yourself. If your sister is a journalist then it's frightening that she LOVES Maddow. It sounds like (not that she is... that would be an assumption) she was turned out of the newer, "got to get the dirt and create sensationalism" journalism departments we have so many of today. As for the facts, miss no-it-all... I watch a number of different networks for the very reason that I want a balance of places from which I draw information. I also have a tendency when journalist quote things, so go back and look at the source information myself (which is why I tend to be so distrusting... the facts often don't hold up). The difference between you and me appears to be that I do my own homework and you just copy of Rachel's. (I suggest you sister be less in AWE and LOVE of Rachel and work hard to make her own career in unbiased reporting.)”

“and now with the perma frost melting at an unprecedented rate it will release even more CO2 and Methane into the atmosphere...and Methane is highly flammable....”

Bike Commuter on Oct 24, 2013 at 20:58:09

“The problem with release of methane into the atmosphere isn't the flammability. At low concentrations flammability is not a risk. The problem is that methane is a much more potent greenhouse gas than CO2.

The mitigating factor to that is that methane breaks down in the atmosphere in a few years.”
