“People like Mitch have made what some call "a neatly ordered life" and Obama upset his world view. The sad part is he doesn't know how sad he looks to the rest of the country. Same with McCain, hero early in life, now will be remembered by most for obstructionism and petty fighting to make himself still look important. Also, it seems he can't get over his bitterness from the 2008 loss. John looks for anything he can do to stick it to the president, like the Secretary of State Rice issue. They lost their credibility years ago.”

“Unfortunately, many people will not bother to check, want to check, or don't care about facts. They will vote on the presentation and Romney did a good job. Obama needs to go out of his comfort zone and attack. He took too much for granted in the 2010 election and lost the house. If his next two debates are just average, the Democrates have problems.”

“I went through a similar situation and I ended up having to pay $1,000 a month to be in the state run high risk pool; I was lucky. If I couldn't have afforded that amount, I would have been out of luck. I'm glad your son got help.”

Become the symbolic spirit of energy and light that feels eternal joy and bliss, and not the flesh that changes form or symbolically dies..”

“By the time our Sun runs out of fuel, earth will be long past it's phase of harboring life. As the Sun runs out of fuel it grows larger and hotter. It expands outwards. This little "Goldie Locks" zone we inhabit, where everything is just perfect for the existence of life, is being erased. All life on earth will be gone long before the fuel runs out. But when it finally does, and our Sun explodes most of the inner and outer planets will be destroyed. But our little solar system will be barren and lifeless long before that happens.”

“Conservatives seem to think deductively. Final conclusion first that is believed just because they thought it or it is part of the party ideology The "conclusion" is set in stone without facts to support it. Ideas are king instead of collecting facts and data to come to a logical conclusion. That is inductive reasoning, like used in science. It takes a lot of time and thinking. New facts can change the conclusion with inductive reasoning and that would upset the apple cart of a deductive reasoner. I think that is one reason Conservatives distrust science, it interrupts their 100% believed deductive idea.”
