“The scandal is that the IRS is allowing any of these political organizations tax free status. They should be paying double rates if anything.”

“"GMOS are engineered so they are either resistant to pests or tolerant of herbicides." This is such a deception that it qualifies as a lie in my book. Sure there are GMOS that fit this description. But to say this is what all GMOS are is a purposeful lie. The "green" movement is hurt by these deceptions. How about the GMOS that are made to withstand drought, or have higher protein, or more vitamins, or grow faster, or produce more product, or any number of good qualities. Stop lying.”

“WOW. Reading these comments reinforces the belief that our education system sucks. There is very little critical thinking going on here. There are good things and bad things about GMO but people are falling for the internet crazies just making things up, running around in circles pulling their hair out yelling "the sky is falling". People believe Monsanto is the only group doing GMO research. It is a basic biological tool being used in hundreds of application in Universities and companies and NGO's everywhere. The work being done in China and Japan dwarfs what Monsanto is doing. Engage brain before opening mouth.”

I would like to know how much USAID spends on their staff in all those countries. I would also bet that the military aid gets funneled through other pipelines. I smell deceptive accounting here.”

“I have lived in many foreign countries and I always had to obey their laws or I faced getting arrested and/or deported. Why not the same here? Don't give me that distraction of this is a country of immigrants. That is like saying this is a country of slave owners. Situations change, countries change, and the laws reflecting modern circumstances change. We have laws and we are a country that supposedly live by the rule of law. Just ignoring the law does not mean it is OK.”

“They common sense solution to much of the gridlock in DC is to change the rules so that a bill only address one issue at a time. No totally unrelated amendments allowed. The bills would be much shorter, simpler to understand, and stop much of the corrupt sausage-making.”

“What happened to "By the people and for the people"? People means people, not corporations, unions, or any other kind of organization. Only people should be able to contribute to elections or politics, There should be a limit to what any one person should be able to contribute. Why should a rich person have a right to influence politics any more than anyone else? This system we have now is a perversion.”

“And so we should borrow more money from China in order to pay out more to the unemployed? Dumb idea. Yea, I know they all paid into the UE fund while they were working, but there has to be a limit someday. Sad but true. I paid into it my whole life but I cannot get anything because the last job I got laid off was from a company that I owned a very small share of.”

How does that feel? Isn't it the same thing you're telling people who can't find a job that pays more than unemployement or will last? Trust me, the vast, vast majority of the unemployed WANT to work. But they also have to pay their bills. If they don't, you ain't seen nothin' yet!”

“That's cuz we're keeping our plans from China. The Chinese will always be ten years behind us. That way, we'll sequester all the best sites for colonization on the Moon and Mars before they do. We'll also gain control of the two largest asteroids in our solar system. Real estate acquisition is what it's all about. If a Chinese Moon colony needs Moon water, then they'll need to buy it from our Moon colony.”

“Those 2% don't deserve to call themselves "scientists". They are probably "social scientists" or "political scientists" which is stretching a point.”

“Creationists love to trot out lists of "scientists" who don't accept the facts and evidence supporting evolution. Those lists rarely stand up to scrutiny and the names tend to be; 1) fictitious, 2) names of engineers, plastic surgeons, sociologists, and other non-expects from fields unrelated to biology, genetics, anthropology, and paleontology, or 3) names of biologists, geologists, etc. who have never published a peer-reviewed article on the topic evolution.”
