“The Group should not have advertised this action or told anyone except the authorities about it. They should arrest Cheney, Bush and Rumsfeld for the war and crimes against humanity which they all authorized in Iraq which led to 5,000 US combat deaths; 35,000 serious injuries and from 100,000 to 200,000 Iraqi deaths.
Been years and still no one has found a single "weapon of mass destruction" which was the basis of the Repubs invading Iraq.”
“Watched the entire testimony so far....Kathleen, you are a FOOL for going before the House Committee without a computer operations expert on the seat next to you; and, an insurance expert on the other side sitting next to you.
Obviously, the Republicans, witness by their asking the same question 19 times are intent on embarrassing you and they have done so.
I was in management long ago and answered to a Board of Directors....I would never think of appearing before them before having thoroughly prepared for their questions; and, where needed, have supporting "expertise" at my side.
You failed, Kathleen....bring some experts next time.”

“Actually the republicans have looked stupid, rude, obnoxious and arrogant. They have bullied this woman and have made themselves look like a desperate bunch of fools. Funny that is pretty much what they are. But don't worry they will be in the minority after next november's elections. Good Job Ms Sebelius for showing grace and intelligence, in the face of ignorance.”

“Good point...Canada...you know who else is Canadian? Yeah that's right Cruz. You know where the pipeline would go? that's right Texas. You know who one of the Senators of Texas is...right again Cruz. Simply too weird, the amount of coincidence in this. Cruz is also Cuban. his father was not accepted in the U.S. , so he went to Canada then married an American to get in. Has anyone seen Cruz's birth cert.? How about his selective service form? I am beginning to think Cruz may be a deep cover Cuban operative sent here to destroy this country.”
"Oilsands mining operations are subject to a zero-discharge policy because of the toxins in the waste water. Waste water that is not recycled is stored in tailings lakes.2,3
Waste water from in-situ processes is often re-injected deep underground."
"Mining requires a net volume of 2.4 barrels of freshwater to extract and upgrade one barrel of bitumen.7
In situ techniques require approximately 0.8 to 1.7 barrels of water to extract and upgrade a barrel of oil.”

“The way Obama should have handled that remark from a joke of a Senator from Texas (with Amigo Cruz being the other one), was with a quick jab at the face which would have resulted in a few teeth being knocked out.

Don't you two mopes realize that the ACA rollout time has 23 weeks to go?
Why not talk about the nearly 1 million already enrolled and not about the glitches?
Shame on you....sounds like neither of you own a computer.”

“Please cite your source for the "1 million already enrolled". Nobody is saying how many have been enrolled and the White House has dodged the question every time it has been asked. You better hope Obamacare will by for newer and better anti-psychotic drugs that you are clearly in need of.”

“We can't predict the weather day-to-day....and these guys can predict the movement of an asteroid in orbit some 19 years from now....where is Carl Sagen and his bogus predictions that were all basically showN to be bogus when the Hubble Telescope was placed in position?”

“First, it's Carl Sagan and not "Sagen." Further, he died in 1996. He'd be the first to tell you, and equally delighted to tell you, that the nature of science is to constantly challenge current thinking. When more definitive information comes forth, science has no problem with adopting the new hypotheses to replace the old beliefs. That IS science.
Finally, you're statement about cannot predict the weather is absolutely inaccurate. The accuracy is a function of how far out is the forecast. The next day forecast is far more accurate than a 30 day forecast. The shorter the time period, the more accurate. But its safe to say that next day weather forecasting is in the 90th percentile of accuracy.
Now, go brush up on your spelling, read a book beside comics, learn something, and get back with us. We'll be waiting.”

“Thanks for showing that you have absolutely no grasp of two disparate subjects: Orbital dynamics and weather models. And lots of people (scientists or otherwise) have made lots of predictions that proved not to be true when new or better observations become available. In fact, that is a key part of the scientific process: Present a hypothesis to explain the available observations that makes predictions of what future observations should find to prove or disprove the hypothesis. Why does Carl Sagan deserve your special attention?”
“Senator Lee of Utah is a mope and a dope and a dolt.
While appearing on Hannity with Amigo Cruz tonight, he thought he was making a point opinion that "even President Obama's hometown newspaper, the Chicago Tribune wants him to wait a year to fully implement Obamacare"....
Everyone who lives in Chicagoland knows that the Chicago Tribune is a Republic rag and they endorse and support everything Republican, even if it is dopes and mopes like Amigo CruZ and Sen. Lee.
Do some checking, Senator Lee, before you make a bigger fool of yourself on other issues.”
“Hope there is follow-through on what she is suggesting.

“Sorry, you may not like him, but 60% of the country feels as he does, and he is a hero in Texas. Read a poll. Now all of the focus will go to Obamacare. The predicted disaster has arrived, and all those dire predictions have come true. Can't wait for the mid-terms.”
