Dick Cheney Accuses Obama Of 'Ignoring The Law'

“It's surreal when someone who got drunk and shot someone in the face has the gall to say someone else is outside the law.”

“And THAT was a small failing compared to what he did intentionally.”

It's sad that nobody seems to proof-read these articles.”

“The whole argument that this is beautiful because it's "natural" is absurd. Know what else is natural? Not brushing or flossing your teeth. Not wearing sunscreen. Not cutting or grooming any hair on your body. Warts. Acne. Badly aligned teeth. Bathing. All natural, all undesirable.

Also, if you want to tout a natural look, you might want to rethink using women with rings in their noses or tattoos.”

“The tone of the article is really annoying. I think a lot more people would be convinced by "here are the reasons you should use fresh garlic" than "here's why you're a Philistine if you use garlic from a jar."”

“So you're going to shame people for daring to use minced garlic, but not bother to tell them how to get the smell off of their hands? Who edits this stuff anyway?

You can get the garlic smell off of your fingers by holding a stainless steel utensil like a spoon in your hands while you wash them.”

“Oh come on. This is supposed to be about "natural" beauty, yet half of the women pictured have facial piercings, and one displays several tattoos. If you like underarm hair, fine, but don't claim that it's because it's natural when you're using women who have altered their bodies permanently to fit a more recent standard.”

“The whole point is incorrect then, because other ideas are not as credible as evolution by means of natural selection. If you believe that it is, please, for your own sake, learn something about evolutionary biology. We DO know of species that existed before humans and apes forked off from the evolutionary line. We just can't point to a specific species and say, "THIS is the last shared ancestor of humans and apes." That does NOT mean that the species in question might have climbed out of the sea or a spaceship. It was clearly an arboreal species, living near the Equator in Africa.”

“There is no "missing link." Evolution is not a chain, and we know for a fact that organisms evolve. We don't have fossils of everything that ever lived, but we don't need those to prove that humans and apes had a common ancestor.”

Sheryl L Bratcher on Mar 7, 2014 at 11:10:47

“DUH!!!!

The common ancestor is the missing link. Since it's a missing link that means we don't know what it is. It could be something that climbed out of the sea or a spaceship or a cave.

The whole point is that any idea is as credible as the other.”

“Wonderful guide for morality? In Luke, chapter 12, Jesus talks about the correct way to beat slaves. That's not my idea of morality.”

“Technically he was talking about the wrath of God if you are not a moral person. Not about human slaves.”

“I knew this was a scam when I saw that Woody Jenkins was involved. Woody has been involved in segregationist activity for decades, along with a long list of other questionable activities: attempted election fraud in 1996, fined by the FEC for concealing his ties to segregationist and former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke, and his involvement with Iran-Contra, among others.”

“Sure, there are other factors, but I've been part of the discussion on this for a long time, and I can tell you that most of the proponents are EXTREMELY racist. I moved away from BR more than 20 years ago now, and I was shocked by the racist comments and racial epithets used by the people who are involved. They reminded me why I left.”

“We've been trying to get improvements for years, but the powers that be who have invested their entire careers in this failed system have repeated ignored us. I don't blame them for wanting to admit that they failed. No one likes that. But they are screwing with people's lives and livelihoods here. We can no longer sit around and watch the Good Ol' Boy Network of Louisiana politics fiddle while Rome burns. We are on the cusp of something great economically, but our horrible school system (one of the worst in the country) is holding us back.”

“This has nothing to do with a return on their taxes. It's about racism and segregation. I grew up in Baton Rouge, and I still love the city, but i have no delusions about the racism that permeates the area.”

“I guess you'd know best. I don't live in an area where skin color is a primary concern. Then again, our education system is thriving and our graduation rates are among the highest in the nation.

Perhaps, just perhaps, there's more to this than skin color... especially since the article itself says "whiter," not "white."”

Grumpy Man on Dec 3, 2013 at 21:29:20

“Racism such as was displayed in the severe beating of a man and the beatings or abuse of his family in Baton Rouge all because they actually had the nerve to stop for gas "in the wrong neighborhood?"

That kind of racism?”

None of those people CHOSE to be forced to be elsewhere this year. The entire plaza is being closed off and only those who were invited will be allowed anywhere near where JFK was shot.”
