“You are wrong that "Not one person has gone t prison for smoking a little pot". In the 60s and 70s into the early 80s many people did hard time for possession of as little as a single seed.. I have a friend who lives with the ill consequences of an 8 year hitch in a Virginia prison for just this offense.Pot laws have ruined many lives.”
“Most Republican Senators were not really that concerned about who Adegbile defended as they were about his unrelentingly leftist theories about civil right.
Just as Democrats really didn't care about Anita Hill but used it as an excuse to batter Clarence Thomas who they opposed because he was a black conservative man which they cannot countenance, the Republicans found a battering ram and used it. Nothing new here. Just a tactic in today's polarized politics.”
“So murdering your baby is now a "loving decision" Wow! You people sure know how to hide the truth by lying with your words. I bet you are so far gone you don't even know what is true anymore. Sad and scary.”

“There is a big difference between murdering a baby and terminating the growth of a group of cells. Perhaps it is you that cannot see the difference.”
“Such doomsday predictions are the best argument possible to cut federal spending much more deeply and to return control to state and local governments. If we, as a country, can't continue to inspect meat, keep open our parks, or maintain defense with a 41 billion dollar reduction in the growth rate of spending in a 3.6 TRILLION dollar budget then this shows just how awful and wasteful this administration is at running our government.
If they are this abysmally incompetent then they need to be given much less control of our resources.”

“Haven't looked at all the links but the one to the, supposed, "minuteman" assault actually showed that the person on trial was a hanger on who was turned in by the actual Minutemen because they were alarmed he wanted to violate the law.
If the other links are as useful this really undercuts the points the author is trying to make.”

“The whole point of the article is to dismiss the idea that this phenomenon exists in the first place. Actually, the real name for this activity is "polar bear hunting." I'm sure you can figure out how it got that title.”
“While the bacteria research may be interesting on it's own your connection of this to climate change is flawed. No research has shown that there is any statistically significant or widespread warming of the global oceans and have, in fact, shown a slight cooling over the last 20 years. The edifice of AGW is crumbling because of just such false claims being debunked.”

“Steve W you could not be more wrong if you were deliberately falsifying your claims. I suspect it is just that you are loyal to your sources for this info. No crime but watch out who you listen to. The usual media sources are abysmally bad, deliberately misinforming their public.
The truth? NASA measures more heat entering the global system than escaping back to space. The thermodynamics are immutable in this. The excess heat is building up somewhere.
The surface temperature is being modulated by the oceanic cycles. That leaves the oceans as the only other place to dump all the heat.
And of course the detection network in the oceans is possibly inadequate to the task. The measurement problem is compounded by the volume specific heat of water vs air.
Air is about 3200 times more sensitive to an amount of heat as the same volume of water is to the same amount of heat.”

“False. It is happening, the scientific community is not in debate about it. There has been NO cooling in the last 20 years, global average temperatures have been steadily rising.”

No it's not. The people who believe that are being shown as anti-science sock puppets for big fossil.. Study more!”

“Sandy is Obama's Katrina but without the media attention! All the suffering, incompetence and death but with none of the messy MSM coverage. We have finally achieved the status of having an authoritarian government controlled media, and best of all, it's voluntary!
No need for these government organs to cover government failures when their guy is in charge.”
