    Country artists should avoid clever word play so as not to confuse their audience.

    Here’s how its done from the one and only country artist I like (okay I admit I like Patsy Cline as well)
    (My three year old loves it too.)

    I remember hearing:
    How high’s the water, mama?
    Two feet high and risin’
    How high’s the water, papa?
    Two feet high and risin’

    We can make it to the road in a homemade boat
    That’s the only thing we got left that’ll float
    It’s already over all the wheat and the oats,
    Two feet high and risin’

    Etc….

    I’m no conservative, but I’ve read a lot about conservative principles or so called “pillars of conservatism” and at some point in the last 15 years listened regularly to all the major AM right wing hate radio personalities.

    In terms of advancing the conservative movement, and the legislative agenda, particularly so called “fiscal conservatism” and “economic freedom’ Mr. Norquist’s contribution is virtually unparalleled.

    If you think of an elephant as representing the conservative movement, Mr. Norquist would be one of the four legs (pillars) while Mr. Beck would be a pimple on the elephants butt. If Mr. Beck, his radio show, and glorified YouTube channel disappeared tomorrow, hardly anyone would notice, while Mr. Norquist would be greatly missed.

    Even for an organization like the NRA, the Beck vs. Norquist decision is a no brainer. If they decide to keep Mr. Beck, keep someone like Ted Nugent on their board and kick Mr. Norquist out, they would show themselves to be completely out of touch with their rank and file members and conservatives in general.

    From A Blaze story on the 10 Most Atheistic (and Religious) Countries

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/08/09/these-are-the-10-most-atheistic-and-religious-countries/

    I’ve visited most of the countries on the top ten atheistic list and they’re all considered extremely safe and have very low crime rates: China, Japan, Czech Republic, France, S. Korea, Germany, Netherlands, Austria, Iceland, Australia, Ireland.

    Then you have the most religious populations:
    Ghana, Nigeria, Armenia, Fiji, Macedonia, Romania, Iraq, Kenya, Peru, Brazil.
    Not exactly the safest places on earth.

    That said, what kind of a sick ***k thinks up and actually describes such graphic and disturbing imagery. It almost sounds like some sick revenge fantasy Mr. Robertson is playing out in his mind against atheists. That or Mr. Roberson is a huge fan of the torture porn genre.

    And first thing in the morning at a prayer breakfast!
    Who would want to eat anything after hearing that?

    Obamacare is the single largest job killer in the US.
    ______

    Per March 20th article from Bloomberg…

    “More than 90 new health-care companies employing as many as 6,200 people have been created in the U.S. since Obamacare became law, a level of entrepreneurial activity that participants say may be unprecedented for the industry.”

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-03-20/dozens-of-startups-in-obamacare-s-wake-reveal-law-as-job-creator

    “For one thing, the bulk of those numbers are coming from expanded Medicaid. And Medicaid is a program where a lot of people who are on Medicaid are not getting health care.
    _______________

    Not sure what the point of that statement was. A lot of people with health insurance aren’t getting healthcare either. That depends on their health. Typically people only get healthcare when they’re sick. Obamacre was about providing health insurance not healthcare.

    I can see why Mr. Cruz went on all the morning shows to launch his campaign since he’s clearly not ready for prime time.

    Let’s unpack this pack of lies….

    “Beyond that, remember six million people had their health insurance canceled because of Obamacare.
    —————
    A right wing favorite talking point. The number quoted ranges anywhere from 4 to 6 million when spewed by the wingnuts. This was thoroughly debunked by Politifact when Dana Loesch claimed 4.7 M lost insurance in her debate with Ed Schultz.

    “In reality, fewer than 1 million people who had been part of the individual insurance market ended up with no coverage at all. Given the constant churn in that market, it is unlikely that the Affordable Care Act caused all of them to be without health insurance.

    Loesch’s number is off, both in terms of the cancellations and what people did afterward. Still, the new law did hurt some people.

    We rate the claim Mostly False.”

    Perhaps Mr. Wallace should invite Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, 6% owner of 21st Century Fox and 1% owner (down from 6.6%) of News Corp on his show and ask him if ISIS is an “extremist Islamic” group and while he’s at it he should ask Mr. bin Talal if he personally supports Sharia Law.

    Do you ever get tired of spewing your right wing talking points?

    Everything you just said has been thoroughly debunked by the reality based community. The only people that still believe this are the wingnuts in the right wing media.

    Meanwhile, globally, this was the hottest winter on record, with the smallest measured Arctic sea ice maximum.

    Au contraire, “such a level of ignorance and a direct falsification of existing scientific data” is a virtual prerequisite for the GOP nomination these days.

    @except-the-truth

    Blacks commit 275% of all crimes?

    Not sure what that means, other than you were most likely homeschooled in math.

    Perhaps they commit 100% of all crimes and 175% of all the future crimes. Even that doesn’t make sense. Perhaps its 100% of all crimes, 100% of future crimes, and 75% of all crimes in the afterlife.

    And your jail analysis doesn’t make sense either. The DOJ is talking about city jail. The cops are just keeping people there until they decide to charge them or send them home.

    The point is, the Ferguson cops are taking more time processing their black population so they are spending more time in the city jail as compared to the non-black population.

    Since Mr. Hannity and FNC love facts so much here are some additional facts from DOJ report:

    Police disproportionately use excessive force against blacks and that black drivers are stopped and searched far more often than white motorists, even though they’re less likely to be carrying contraband.

    The Justice Department also found that blacks were 68 percent less likely than others to have their cases dismissed by a municipal court judge, and that from April to September of last year, 95 percent of people kept at the city jail for more than two days were black, according to the official.

    Among the findings of the report was a racially tinged 2008 message in a municipal email account stating that President Barack Obama would not be president for very long because “what black man holds a steady job for four years.”

    Another email, the DOJ said, “described a man seeking to obtain ‘welfare’ for his dogs because they are ‘mixed in color, unemployed, lazy, can’t speak English and have no frigging clue who their Daddies are.’”

    @Milton

    First off, when you have to resort to ad hominem attacks you immediately lose the debate.

    Second, I didn’t state it NASA stated it. (Follow the link). And I am certain all the debunkers have by now been dunked. So round and round we go.

    The only thing that really matters is research and evidence.

    So finally, you can certainly provide evidence to the contrary – a single scientific body or institution which disagrees or a peer reviewed study.

  • [-1] March 12, 2015 at 1:58pm

    We actually know what real disputes in the scientific community look like.
    Examples include Hawking vs. Susskind on the nature of Black Holes (http://www.amazon.ca/The-Black-Hole-War-Mechanics/dp/0316016411). Another good example was on the question of what caused the mass dinosaur extinction (this was prior to more or less reaching consensus on a massive asteroids which hit just off the Yucatan Peninsula).

    What typically happens is that two camps form along two competing theories both camps consisting of scientists who are tops in the field. The split can be 80:20 or 70:30 with one side eventually prevailing through research and evidence.

    This has not happened with climate science – 97% of scientists agree on the basic premise as I outlined above.

    http://climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus/
    Can you provide the name of single scientific institution (anywhere in the world) which disputes the basic premise or even provide a single peer reviewed study?.

  • March 12, 2015 at 11:53am

    Mr. Kerry should not use the phrase “the science is settled” the more precise phrase is there is no dispute within the scientific community that the earth’s climate is warming and that human activity is primarily to blame.

    Mr. Kerry’s clumsy comparison with gravity is also barely accurate in that Gravity is still a theory. The best theory explaining gravity, Einstein’s General Relativity, still doesn’t square with Quantum Mechanics i.e. the behavior of subatomic particles. So our understanding of gravity is at best incomplete. And again there is no dispute within the scientific community on General Relativity (which turns 100 in 2015) Quantum Mechanics, or the fact the two are not compatible.

    All scientific theories, as determined by Judge William Overton in the Arkansas creationism trial:
    • Are guided by natural law.
    • Have to be explanatory by reference to natural law.
    • Are testable against the empirical world.
    • Their conclusions are tentative.
    • Are testable and falsifiable.

    If you can find fossil mammals in the same geological strata as trilobites then
    evolution would be falsified. No one has ever found such contradictory data.

    The Kennedy and Ortega episodes were actually consistent with US policy at the time – That is, Mr. Kennedy was promoting nuclear arms reduction and the 10 Senators were “asked to send the letter by Alphonso Robello, whom the Congressman describes as a leader in one of the paramilitary groups now battling the Sandinista leadership in Managua.”

    Secret back channels were used, but the goal was essentially consistent with US foreign policy at the time.

    The letter to the Iranians was very public and was completely counter to current US foreign policy.

    But putting all that aside is Mr. Opelka comparing the 47 US Senators to Mr. Kennedy? A Character much hated by conservatives. So is he suggesting that even if conservatives hate Mr. Kennedy for many reasons, one of which was trying to one up Mr. Reagan, they will gladly stoop down to his level to score political points?

    The news day cannot possibly be this slow.

    Can’t believe there isn’t someone sending a racist email or a white person using the n-word in a “racist?” way, or someone inventing a new gun, or a porn star finding Jesus. Can’t believe no one “lost it” and had a “fiery exchange” on some cable news show, or even some musings from Mr. Beck himself on the how we are one day closer to WW III.

    Come on Blaze!

    We’ve grown accustomed to a certain journalistic standard of excellence, don’t let us down.
