“Yeah, the fundamentalist homophobes who make about two percent of the population have a disproportionate amount influence in the Republican Party and in US politics in general and should stop trying to deny same-sex couples basic rights. Couldn't agree with you more, irishpd158.”

“There is nothing in this article or the study that suggests such a link. Anyway, why would companies want to pay taxes, whether they're at a 30% or a 2% rate? As long as it costs less money to pay the accountants to offshore their profits than it is to pay taxes, companies will offshore their profits.”

“Paul Volcker brought down inflation.”

sailcat on Jun 5, 2013 at 23:45:33

“Paul Volcker did indeed make the hard decisions that roped in high inflation and when the inflation rates were finally stabilized, Reagan fired him because Volcker was unpopular. That was some pat on the back, wasn't it?”

“Who exactly supports this? Almost all Keynesian economists believe that raising taxes in a recession causes further economic contraction (perhaps with a smaller effect than that of cutting unemployment insurance and food stamp programs.) Democratic politicians, most of whom do support raising taxes now, also support cutting spending, so I'm not sure what "experts" you're referring to.”

“Yeah! Why do people care about things that don't directly affect them? If they are putting potentially dangerous chemicals on plants that people later consume without their knowledge then it is none of my business.”

“"In almost every state".... I love that fundamentalists have to say that after the 2012 election. And I wonder what they will be saying as more people embrace same sex marriage, which every poll suggests is happening. When more people recognize the love and commitment that same sex couples can share, what will fundamentalists say then? How will they justify their worthless social policies?”

“The definition of traditional marriage has always been in flux. Do you not remember the introduction of divorce in the West, a practice that obviously does far more harm to marriage than allowing loving couples to marry, following the Reformation?”

“100% in agreement with divorce being just as destructive. I advocate for theend of no-fault. Only under the condition of breach of contract should a divorce be allowed.”

“It is ridiculous that you would prefer gay people (and their straight spouses) in unhappy marriages than gay people in happy marriages. Let me also apply your argument to religion: Jews have always had the same rights as me; they can worship Jesus Christ just like I do.”

rdianeandsam on Feb 23, 2013 at 08:54:53

“Well guess what, your logic works, the jews can worship Jesus Christ like me or else they can burn in hell, how you like them apples? Who says that marriage is about being happy anyway? I live with a person who sees almost everything completely different than I do. My benefits come because I am able to produce offspring to contribute to the workforce or military. NO baby making- NO benefits! ”

“That would be speciation, which is an outcome of evolution. Evolution is the change of inherited characteristics over successive generations. Artificial selection created dachshunds. Your ignorance about evolutionary science does not bode well for your understanding of climatology.”

jjmthomas on Dec 3, 2012 at 22:30:36

“I do know that a Dachshund is a product of selective breading...and not evolution...in fact all dogs are of the Canis lupus familiaris (they got off the boat that way)...but they can not, will not, ever be a cat.

and climate change is mostly caused by solar flares due to a post flood weak magnetic field.
and before you start your babble solar flares coincides precisely with the little ice age 1300 and 1850 AD”

“Why are you leery of those who "profit" from it and not those who profit from not having a policy that addresses it? For someone who remains "not convinced", you seem to be more skeptical of 98% of scientists, and not oil company executives, as if climatology is a highly lucrative field that con-men and speculators are flocking too.

Also... "4. Scientists have to earn a living, so climate change does not exist."”
