I think the “gangster thugs” comment is over the top. I prefer Hanlon’s Razor: “Never attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by stupidity”. ( Though perhaps “stupidity coupled with blind partisanship and acceptance of ideological myth in place of reality “.)
I think Todd nailed it, and well said Pat Smith. The presidency has to be a very discouraging place to be at this time to the extent I wouldn’t blame him if he chose not to run again and “let someone else have this thankless job”. But he most surely will run and perhaps he [...]
We live out of town and just drop the glass, along with the other recyclables, at the recycling center off 6th street SW every few weeks when we’re driving in that direction. However if special trips are needed just for glass that probably would be counterproductive.

I voted “no” only because if she runs I’ll probably have to hear more of her than if she doesn’t. Otherwise, I don’t care, she’ll appeal to a minority of a minority and take away support from more credible candidates. I’m an independent, she’s a Republican. They own the problem.
OK, I took off the “left-wing shades” you claim and I’ll respond to it. I essentially agree with his post and have no significant issues with it. What issues were you expecting ? What “right-wing” comments did he make ?
They put up McCain. McCain made his foolish choice of Palin ( or someone did it for him ) and the RNC was stuck with it. McCain was far more electable than some of the current Republican pack. (all in my opinion)
I’d not say it’s impossible — sometimes the stars align in the most unlikely way. But I think they’d have to come up with the finances pretty much on their own. I doubt the RNC would want to finance such a destructive duo.
The last sentence is a little bizarre from my perspective. No supernatural explanation is required so no miracle is involved. Furthermore the barriers were designed, funded, and installed by man. That any God was involved is pure speculation. I am glad that the non-supernatural barriers possibly saved the couple from death or serious injury.
Ronald, if the media and political pundits stopped paying attention to the Straw Poll it might go away. As far as laying the blame on Iowa, lay it on the people who sponsor and organize it as well as the people who pay attention to it. Does the State of Iowa, in an official capacity, [...]
The author of the paper, Ross McKitrick, has a PHD in economics. I find no information that he has any education in any science applicable to the study of climate. Furthermore, he is noted as a climate change skeptic.
Here’s the link to the dissenting views.
Here is a link to scientific opinion on climate change. As soon as the time-out allows I’ll provide a link (same source) to scientific dissent on climate change.
It’s information from what would be considered by a lot of people a credible source. If you deny it to be a credible source and the information within not to be sound then what can I say but just continue to believe what you read in denial blogs. Not one single professional scientific organization with [...]
LOL His posts remind me of the quote attributed to Einstein: “Insanity is defined as repeating the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different outcome” (or something like that). In his case it’s repeating essentially the same information from blogs over and over and expecting it to eventually be accepted as factual.
