    Calling this “Child exploitation” and labeling these children as “victims of child abuse” whose parents should be “exposed and shamed as the gutless, idiotic bullies they are” is a bit over the top.

    In fact it’s actually way over the top and is insulting to real victims of child abuse and exploitation all over the world.

    You simpletons are both wrong.

    Einstein was a Zionist, although often critical of how Jewish settlers treated the Arabs. He was also very politically active.

    Great discoveries in science rarely come out of the blue and almost always build on the work of others.

    Putting aside Special Relativity and E-mc2, (assuming this is what you’re referring to), you still have Einstein’s papers on:

    The Photoelectric Effect (he won the Nobel Prize for this one).
    Brownian Motion
    General Relativity – actually explaining how gravity works

    Typical loony right wing historic revisionism.

    Is this the David Barton version of Einstein’s history?

    Being a high profile Jew and holding a high post in a major Berlin university during Hitler’s rise to power there is no doubt that Einstein detested the Nazis. However his politics would be considered way left of center even by today’s standards.

    When Einstein applied for a US visa in 1932 to teach at Cal Tech, an extreme right-wing outfit called the Woman Patriot Corporation sent a 16-page letter to the State Department arguing that he should not be allowed into the country. According to this group, Einstein’s well known anti-war and internationalist views amounted to “direct affiliation with Communist and anarcho-communist organizations and groups…”

    This was only the beginning of Einstein’s’ FBI file. Mr. Hoover himself supplied the “Biographical Sketch” complete with lies and half-truths, including statements that Einstein “has been sponsoring the principal Communist causes in the United States” and that, “in Berlin, even in the political free and easy period of 1923 to 1929, the Einstein home was known as a Communist center and clearing house…”

    The infamous file grew to 1,800 pages and recently became available on Amazon.

    Surprisingly could not find Mozart on these charts.

    Einstein said that while Beethoven created his music, Mozart’s “was so pure that it seemed to have been ever-present in the universe, waiting to be discovered by the master.He was fascinated by Mozart and sensed an affinity between their creative processes

    Parliament’s sergeant-at-arms, Kevin Vickers has already been hailed a hero for allegedly stopping the assailant.

    “All the details are not in but the sergeant-at-arms, a former Mountie, is the one that engaged the gunman, or one of them at least, and stopped this,” Veteran Affairs Minister Julian Fantino told the Toronto Sun. “He did a great job and from what I know shot the gunman and he is now deceased.”

    Native American: As a Native American I feel insulted by that name.

    Redskin Fan: That doesn’t matter because the intent is to honor you.

    Native American: But the effect is that I am insulted.

    Redskin Fan: The effect is your problem as long as my intent is honorable.

    Native American: But if I tell you what the effect is, and you ignore it, doesn’t that undermine your intent?

    Redskin Fan: My intent to honor you is so strong that it crushes that effect, so I get what I want.

    Native American: That’s the type of reasoning I would expect in defense of a team in the NFL.

    Redskin Fan: I feel honored by that remark.

    Native American: That doesn’t matter because the intent of the remark was to insult you.

    @EyeDontThink

    That’s one messed-up post.
    Dude, you’re one shaky cat.

    You do realize Dudley Do-Right was created by an American. So I guess the bulbous chin is what American think mounties look like.

    There is a major problem with Mr. Howerton’s defense of Mr. Abbott, “Latino” is not a race.
    So Mr. Abbott’s marriage is not relevant to the argument.

    The term “Latino” refers to people of Latin American origin, and the countries of Latin America are multiracial and generally racially mixed.

    From Mexico to Patagonia you’ll find white people, black people and indigenous people, and all the possible combinations — not to mention many people of Asian and Middle Eastern backgrounds. More people of African descent live in Brazil than any country in the world, except Nigeria.

    What has made Americans so fearful and stupid?
    So far there have been fewer confirmed Ebola case in the US than Rush Limbaugh’s had marriages.

    I don’t get your point. If Mr. Tarpishchev referred to them sisters then what’s the joke?

  • [-1] October 20, 2014 at 8:50am

    It’s not offensive by itself if you’re referring a certain American ethnic group as “the brothers” everyone pretty much knows what you’re talking about and it’s not really offensive, but Mr. Tarpishchev was referring to two particular black women.

  • October 20, 2014 at 8:50am

    You still don’t get it.

    Mr. Tarpishchev intended this to be racist/sexist comment because Russians don’t think there is anything wrong with making racist/sexist jokes. That’s why he is still completely puzzled what all the “fuss” is about

    As a former Russian (I was just a kid when we landed in Montreal in 1976 and pretty much all my parents friends are Russian Jews who been living in Canada for the past 35+ years) I can say
    Russians are one of the most sexist /racist groups that you’ll come across. (They’re not even that crazy about Canadian Jews, although they love Israel and are huge Zionists).

    So this comment by Mr. Tarpishchev is not really surprising, and is probably pretty mild compared to what he privately tells his friends and colleagues.

    Not surprising that this comment is a huge hit with Blaze readers. You guys won’t even defend your elite athletes in order to attack some supposed PC. And the Williams sisters are the only Americans winning anything in Tennis (and Golf) these days. An American male white or black hasn’t won a slam since 2003.

    PS The reason it’s both racist and sexist is because the word “brothers” is a dig at Willams’ race and sex and if you think it’s just my imagination then you don’t get joke.

    One more reason Republicans/conservatives should relax about Ebola:

    So far all the cases of individuals contracting the disease in the US were due to the fact that they were helping others. So again Republicans/conservatives should have nothing to worry about.

    You keep saying the same thing without directly addressing the points brought up in the article.

    1. It would choke off aid and could worsen the outbreak
    2. It would make it harder to track infected people
    3. Lawmakers are long on opinions, short on practical ideas
    4. Based on current airport screening there is very little indication large numbers of infected people are entering the US.

  • [-1] October 17, 2014 at 2:16pm

    I guess you didn’t read the article.

    Everyone here screaming for a travel ban to West Africa should read todays Politico piece on why it would not be effective.

    http://www.politico.com/story/2014/10/travel-ban-flights-ebola-111961_Page2.html

    Interesting point…

    “…during the outbreak of SARS, which unlike Ebola can be spread through the air, the United States did not ban travel. As now, officials instituted temperature screenings and health and travel questionnaires at points of departure and entry, and instituted close monitoring.”

    And I don’t seem to recall Republicans/conservatives calling for a travel ban on China & Honk Kong.
