“I hope you are right but Indiana is a very red state. Mourdock is very extreme but most people in Indiana do not follow politics that closely and will likely vote for him just because he has an R after his name. We don't need any more crazies like Mourdock in government.”

“They both became famous as children based on decisions made by their guardians. They may have chosen to remain in the public eye but the original decision was not theirs.”

“Yes, but if both complain, then both may need psychological counseling to cure the schizophrenic habit of nurturing while despising media attention.”

“Ryan's "smart" plan doesn't reduce the deficit as much as Obama's. His biggest concern is cutting taxes for wealthy people rather than deficit reduction. You don't strike me as wealthy but don't give up your dreams. It may be all you will be left with.”

“This is not a crisis. This is what North Korea does over and over. A little benign neglect is what is called for. If the N. Korean government decides to cross the line, they will be destroyed. To make too much of what they are doing only encourages them to continue their provocative behavior.”

“So the free market will choose the winners and the loosers? Withou a strong central government, momoplies will form and choose the winners and loosers. Hospitals should not treat the uninsured? That isn't good public health policy. Would you like for millions to go without vaccinations. Our high Internet and cell phone bills are due to over-regulation? Those services cost much less in Europe. Read up. Stop listening to all the right wing propaganda.”

tonymoo on Feb 18, 2013 at 15:16:05

“Internet and cell? Don't misquote. Not over-regulation. Hidden taxes. When companies have to pay billions for bandwidth, it gets passed along. When towns charge cable companies huge franchise fees, it gets passed along. Research how much of your $100 cell goes to the gov one way or another.

Of course the poor should get medical care but let's be honest about how much we are spending. Fund it entirely as a single line in the general budget (of a state or feds). NO more hidden taxes. No bill surcharges - it doesn't make logical sense that the consumers of healthcare should be the ones funding healthcare for the poor. No insurance surcharges. No equipment surcharges.”

“No evidence? Your denial and that of millions of others has caused too much delay. You are threatening the well being of us all.”

Michael A Lewis on Sep 5, 2012 at 11:00:11

“Evidence is evidence. I deny nothing.

The Earth has been warming for the past 15,000 years, during this interglacial period we call teh Holocene. More recently since 1810, as a rerturn from the Little Ice Age, a period of cooling during the long warming. Based on the evidence of solar cycles, we're heading into another cooling period.

It's not necessary to speculate, model or guess about climate. The cycles of climate variation are written in the geologic record. It's only necessary to read them, and view the evidence from contemparary observations.

I have no power to dealy anything. If the evidence for anthropogenic global warming is so delicate, it must be very weak.”

“I think it had more to do with the barbarian invasions of Rome than Christianity. In some ways Christianity held people back but without it much of the knowledge of the Greeks would have been lost.”

doctorJulia on Sep 2, 2012 at 22:30:55

“The knowledge actually returned through the Muslims who conquered Egypt and the Levant. Greeks living there were still hanging on to these important documents. Some of the Muslim thinkers got hold of them and tried to continue what the Greeks knew but the stupid Muslim leaders forbad them. If the Muslims had hung on to them and built upon them, the world would be a much different place. Still, the Christians of Constantine's time were just as bad and burned most of the important copies still in Western hands.”

“The Occupy Movement is much too unfocused to be of any use. What is needed is a lot more civil disobedience with smart strategists who are willing to stick their necks out.”

soeasy on Sep 3, 2012 at 00:08:46

“Richard, in my opinion, unfocused or not, the movement is valid and gave me hopes. . At least, , they had the courage to try!
Your idea about more civil disobedience with smart strategists is good, but I can not think about anyone that is a good strategist and are willing to stick his/her necks out.
On the other hand, I do not know if Michael Moore is a good strategist, but for sure he is not afraid to stick his neck out.”

“He has raised fuel efficiency standards for cars. He has signed legislation that promotes renewable energy. He signed into law a measure that would allow homeowners to take a tax exemption for energy saving home improvements. The EPA has been trying to come up with regulations limiting greenhouse gasses but has been vigorously opposed by Republicans and conservative Democrats. Considering the venom of the opposition any progress at all is miraculous.”

“The shuttle was an albatross from the beginning. The original idea was to have a less expensive way of putting people and supplies into space by using reusable spacecraft. Then the military got involved and changed everything over and over until it was one of the biggest boondoggles in history. Obama was right to ground the shuttles. They were expensive, old and dangerous.”

“It is laughable to think that the power and money is on the side of climate scientists and the left. The disinformation campaign about climate science from the oil, coal and gas producers and other wealthy elites is exactly like the campaign successfully waged by tobacco companies for decades. I agree that you should pay attention to where the money comes from but the vast majority of it is being spent to make people believe climate change is a hoax.”
