Starring Bronson Pinchot as Nikola and Mark Linn-Baker as Thomas Edison.
Understand that Edison needs Telsa documents and maybe Edison can improve it.
What others left-out, "Camera Obscura" is a good example!
A lot of "Genuine Scientist and Engineers are making it better, this is "Capitalism".
Free thinking men, who are making it better! (That's all!)
So do you and I enjoy cameras, xerox, photo copy, i.e...?
If so, thanks to "Camera Obscura"! ;)
I'm not watching at all.
I can only imagine the soppy influence of Beck, and I am not interested.

Lol, I noticed that too. I like the guy’s message myself but I just think he is a little loose on his belief system. Regardless, his message is 100% correct and I wish more people would actually read the article before they post.

I can see how a person of faith can justify many of the things he says he stands for. However, I still don’t understand how person of faith can be pro choice. Even LGBT people can be justified as victims of an uncontrollable urge but there is no way ANY person of faith can justify the murder of an unborn child. I guess there could be the angle of mercy for a deformed unborn child but supporting “reproductive rights” encompasses the right to abort in general.

A man with an ID can still have a weapon. You are denying the poor minorities from attending when you know good and well proper security and detection will solve the problem.

I was speaking about the Atheists trolling places to cause trouble, sue, etc. I really don’t know if your are lying or not but if you DID graduate there (thus grew up there atleast for a few years) then you were the extreme minority. Sure, there are those that are not religious in Lebanon but there are not many of them (which is why I said “most” and not “all”). Just because the town of 15,000 people didn’t attend the ceremony does not make them non-Christians. People just don’t tend these ceremonies for the fun of it. Bottom line is that town is Christian centric and even though atheists live there they will not change once thing about the way these ceremonies are run because they are ridiculously outnumbered and the town in general has reputation of keeping God in their lives both public and private. Even those that are Atheists or non-religious don’t mind living there because everyone is treated with respect regardless of their background. Talking about God has been in their graduation ceremonies for who knows how long (probably the entire history of the town) and nobody cared to complain because it really didn’t matter because even those that were not Chirsitans knew that they were not being hurt and respected the town they grew up in.

Most of my family is from Lebanon, MO and although I don’t live there I visit there often. For those who don’t know it’s around a 1.5 hours north of Branson, MO and is a VERY Christian centric town (always has been). Bottom line is that Lebanon just doesn’t care what this guy thinks and they will do what they want. It’s a town of around 15,000 people but it seems that everybody knows everybody else and almost the entire town is on the same page when it comes to religion. The town can get threatened, sued, arrested, etc. but they will ALWAYS do this at their graduation ceremonies. Atheists might as well troll somewhere else.
I graduated Lebanon in 2004, and this kind of defiant stunt was not pulled at my graduation ceremony. There is no "trolling" here, so please stop using that word. The fact is, NOT the entire town is on the same page when it comes to religion. If they were, then why didn't "almost the entire town" attend the baccalaureate service that was available? Interesting...
Public schools have to adhere to standards from federal, state, and local governments. Again, god was NOT talked about in my graduation ceremony in 2004, nor my sister's in 2007, and DEFINITELY not to the extent of 2014. And yes, I grew up in Lebanon from age 6 to age 18.
Also, I never claimed that not attending baccalaureate made anyone non-Christian, but the point is that if it was that darn important for you to hear about God in the context of graduation, then you had your own very special service that you could attend to, and thus there is no reason for that kind of speech in the general ceremony, where people from ALL religions attend.
The Town also holds the Brumbly Sing, a Christian Music Event that is held in the same building as the graduation. The majority of the people around town enjoy it unlike Stone500.
To you Stone500, it is Too Bad your Principal was not as concerned about you Being Blessed at your Graduation! I'm Sure you would have prefered Mr O'Neil's speech Telling you to just Go out And Fail. Possibly because you were not Blessed that is why you have a sour attitude.

She is tolerant. She does not want to take away his rights but just thinks it should not be front page news coverage. Would it be intolerant if she didn’t want to see a couple have sex onTV? How about not wanting to see violence?
just guessing, Clown, but i think Sup was asking why there was no tolerance for Amy Kushnir's opinion.
Concur, East, that's how I read it, so I'm not sure what those 7 (by 8:35 pm) meant by their thumbs down.
knee-jerk assumptions, Mick.
Any resistance to evil and depravity is a phobia, and must be dealt with harshly.
I am an heterophiliac and they will never convert me or teach me or my kids that we must be any other way. We were all born hetero.
Exactly. It was a dog and pony show meant to shove it in people's faces in defiance. THAT is what makes you angry. And to see a guy liplocking with another guy, I gotta tell ya, made me nauseous! But if they want to do that, do it behind closed doors. For the love of Pete, we don't want to see guys all kissy-face with anybody, frankly, during the draft. It's the "in your face" of it that was intentional and offensive.
Watching Rosanne Barr lip-locking with her husband makes me nauseous too, but I'm not going to tell anyone it doesn't belong on TV. Sounds like that host is all fine with equality and liberty, as long as they keep practicing it in the shadows where it belongs... (not my opinion)
Just tell her to suck-it-up, buttercup... Welcome to the real world.
Hey, its her right to see violence. But doesn't mean they want to see the Chain Saw Massacre on a Sports Channel. Unless, it is advertised as such, or after the hours (that TV programming has). Of course, I don't think the people completing in a Chain Saw Massacre show would last very long. Shows are currently has ratings and Programming. No different than a individual wouldn't expect Porn on a General Audience Sports Channel. If they change there programming, then people should stop watching, stop paying, etc. Especially if they are not changing their rating.

I agree that the fact that the Jewish people having an actual country will help defend from genocide. However, it’s amazingly scary how many people hate Jews just because of their heritage. Yes, a “final solution” should be frowned upon by almost everybody that has even an ounce of a soul but the sad fact is that there are way too many people that have a deep hatred for these people.
 May 12, 2014 at 8:12pm
The Neo-Nazis are polling at 8% which is a LOT for a party that pretty much agree that incinerating people in ovens just because of their heritage is a good thing. This WILL spread like a cancer again if it’s not met head on. 8% can easily turn into 18%, 28%, 38%, etc. before we know it.
Too many people support to one extent or another things said by these nazis.
They tell some myth about the Jews being behind all the evil in the world and just because some YouTube video or supposedly "Christian" website says it's true, far too many fall for it.
Clown, I think the Jews, at least in Israel, are ready for them this time. Besides, genocide just doesn't play well on the world stage anymore. Popping a 50 kiloton warhead can really put a crimp in plans like "the final solution". Bibi wouldn't hesitate.
Don't for get that it only takes 10% of the voting block to make changes to a system!
We need to get it to 88%. It is time to for us to rise from the ashes and restore our sanity!

A lot has changed in the last 5 years alone and it’s not been for the better. If it were not for our extremely strong church presence I think we would already be past cities like St. Louis, Columbia, and KC in terms of corruption and moral bankruptcy.

We had an interesting government employee memorial story here in Springfield, MO. We had a recent vote on April 8th to extend a sales tax that would help fund the police & fire departments pension plans fully. The city was overwhelmingly behind this but the vote was to support those that kept us safe and NOT support the city. Our city loves to waste money and the pension could of been fully funded earlier if not for this waste. The city told us that if we didn’t vote “no” on the bill (a “no” vote actually extended the pension which was a little confusing) then police and fire staff would have to be reduced to fund the pension. In the end the citizens did not want to hurt the city protection workers so the bill passed (with a no vote).
It was interesting that the city had this position because on March 29th a longtime city director died of cancer and on April 4th the city decided to have a memorial procession with 100+ city vehicles. This included bulldozers, dump trucks, drill trucks, lift trucks, etc. I had NEVER seen this many city vehicles in one area of town in my life. Well, the amount of fuel used to move all these vehicles was pretty expensive. The REAL kicker though is that the city workers GOT PAID (I believe it was overtime but I don’t have information on that) to be in the procession. These workers were so honorable that they had to get paid for a procession. To be clear these were utilities\city works workers and not police and fire workers.
Springfield is in danger of becoming as leftist as Columbia, St. Louis, and Kansas City. y'all really need to change the demographics of your City Council to TEA!

Eminent domain is never liked by all but atleast there is a reason behind it in this case. Energy security is WAY more significant than saving a turtle that isn’t being hurt by the cows anyway.

I’m truly not trying to be a jerk but there is SO MUCH false information flying around lately it’s starting to get ridiculous. Sure, PCUSA isn’t perfect but it’s far from the “false Christian denomination” people make it out to be. I actually came from an Assemblies Of God church and they had a whole other set of issues that were different than PCUSA issues but no less important. True AOG members are no less Christan than true PCUSA members, but are also no MORE Christian either.
March 19, 2014 at 3:13pm
I have no clue where people are getting all this false information. Here is a correct “rewrite” of your post.
1. The whole thing about female pastors is the only true statement in your post.
2. PCUSA believes in creationism just as much as any other Christian denomination. The only evolutionary aspect that true PCUSA members would even support is that of micro-evolution. Yes, evolution can happen over time based on mutations and such but we STILL believe that God created life.
3. PCUSA does not support divorce or sexual immorality. Yes, if a spouse is getting abused then PCUSA understands that divorce is necessary. However, many of the PCUSA pastors won’t even officiate a marriage until the couple goes through extensive church based marriage counseling (provided free by the pastor). Sex outside of marriage is frowned upon and is no way supported by the church.
4. PCUSA does not support gay relationships. The church welcomes gay people into the church because shunning them serves no purpose other than driving them away from God. Who knows what their future holds but it can only help if they are closer to God. There are a LOT of gay people who actually want to be closer to God but most churches will only concentrate on them being gay and not them wanting to be closer to God in general. Being gay isn’t their central identity as a person wanting be a Christian. We all fall at one time or another and EVERYBODY needs to be helped along the way.

The majority from southern Missouri can tell you that this would be more than symbolic. Sure, it probably isn’t technically legal to override federal law in this case but we really don’t care. For many down here it’s more about what is right and not necessarily what is legal. We would have it no other way.
What is right vs what is "legal". The courts chose the latter over the former ages ago...

Washington had absolutely no chance of dying in battle because he was a complete bada**!
March 6, 2014 at 4:44pm
I have actually had conversations with Christians that have different views of what Hell is. Some view it has a place of nothingness where you can’t enjoy the grace of God and some view it as an actual place of eternal torment. Heaven and seeing Christ as a deity seems like those base beliefs that should transcend all Christian denominations.
