Bill Nye isn’t quite the science guy he promotes himself as being. He is actually very anti-science on the subject of GMOs.

It’s liberals who are anti-vaccine and anti-GMO and into homeopathy, energy healing, magic crystals and all manner of quack medicine.

It’s weird how many people think Snowden ran to Russia. The only reason Snowden is in Russia is because our government forced him to remain in Russia. They revoked his passport while he was enroute to South America. If they didn’t want him to be in Russia they would have permitted him to leave as he was trying to do. They wouldn’t have threatened every country that tried to give him asylum.
Snowden did not escape to Putin’s Russia. The only reason he is there is because Obama forced Snowden to remain in Russia by revoking his passport while he was en route to South America. Snowden is in Russia because Obama prevented Snowden from leaving Russia. Apparently that’s what the government wants.

A little search is all it takes to discover that Eugene McCarthy is neither a world-leading geneticist nor is he employed by the University of Georgia. No scientific journal has published his theory of chimp-pig hybrids.
Using the Daily Mail as a source is like using the conspiracy-quack website Natural News as a source.

Here’s the thing: Did this guy extend his invitation to fat or unattractive girls…? Likely not. Because the male desire for an attractive mate is equivalent to the female desire for a mate with resources, one who can provide for progeny. Child-rearing is labor intensive. A mate who can provide for all is preferable.

To think there are so few Republican senators who oppose drone-striking people outside of Starbucks. In fact, Lindsey Graham even feels sorry for the president, and says Republicans should protect Obama from libertarians….

Rand Paul hasn’t violated any of his principles. If you assumed he was a neocon you assumed wrong.
February 27, 2013 at 12:56pm
Don’t be mystified by Rand Paul’s vote for Chuck Hagel. Hagel is a solid conservative. He’s just not a neoconservative.
Glenn, if you want to be a libertarian you need to understand that neoconservatism is the antithesis of libertarianism. Neoconservatism violates the nonaggression principle (NAP) with sociopathic abandon. Neoconservatism came from the left. The first neoconservatives (like Irving Kristol) were ex-Trotskyite Democrats who became disaffected with the Democratic party when it started becoming less militarily aggressive. So in the 70′s they defected to the GOP and infected Republicans with their foaming at the mouth war everywhere, all the time mentality. Neoconservatives are the poison in the GOP that is causing Republicans to lose membership and votes.
Hagel is NOT a Conservative, he is a PROGRESSIVE of the Globalist variety!
Zigniew Brzezinski (who formed the Trilateral Commission with Rockefeller) and Chuck Hagel wrote a paper and submitted it to Buck Ofama in it, it calls for: Spending $160 Billion and sending US TROOPS TO A DEATH TRAP guarding the WEST BANK. They are INSANE and CORRUPT and Hagel is one of the WORST people evah.
These people get together and decide among them how to vote by whoever can get the most cover for their vote. The Rs told Rand to vote yea and HE DID. No principles on this one...a throw away vote...no one will remember. That's their bet. Besides the establishment R's don't like Rand Paul. He probably did as he was told to gain favor with the R's who told him how to vote. (theory)
February 27, 2013 at 12:25pm
Rand Paul did the right thing. Republicans should be pleased by Hagel’s appointment. He’s a solid conservative. He’s just not a neoconservative, which is even better. Neoconservatives are why people are fleeing the GOP in revulsion and horror.
No, neoconservatives are not why people are fleeing the party in droves. That is your opinion, not fact... just as it is the opionion of a lot of Ron Paul supporters. Conservatives are actually a very diverse group who all have different platforms that they feel passionately about. Please don't pigeon-hole and make assertions that are based on your own feelings rather than reality.
"He’s a solid conservative. "
Oh man, that was awesome, I laughed *so* hard. Thanks!
Neoconservatives come directly out of the left-wing of the 60's, and have taken over the GOP. It's a sad fact that the fascist progressives control both parties now.

Libertarian Lessons for Glenn:
You should be pleased with the Hagel appointment. Chuck Hagel is a solid conservative. He’s just not a NEO-conservative, by which I mean he is not a foaming at the mouth pro-war everywhere all the time conservative. The USA is broke. Remember…?
As for Hagel’s alleged “antti-Isreal” positions. You need to let go of this idea that it is the job of Congress to put Israel’s interests before America’s interests. Israel is fully capable of borrowing its own money from China.

I do think you should reserve the word “fascist” for government malfeasance and coercion — not for when people are just pissed at you. If someone starts thumping up your back stairs and dragging you off to an internment camp then you can accuse him of being a fascist. This is a strong word that becomes meaningless if just bandied about frivolously. Save it for the Obama corporatists.
February 24, 2013 at 12:00am
But he does make a valid point when he says we should kindly teach people instead of excoriating them for their ignorance. We certainly need to be more politic. We’ll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, as they say….

Please allow me to walk you through a few things. You are mistaken in believing that libertarians demand some sort of litmus test of political purity. Trying to pigeon hole libertiarians is like herding cats. There is actually a wide variation of opinion in libertarian circles, as was recently demonstrated in the ronpaul.com kerfuffle. To visualize this go look at the Nolan Chart at http://www.theadvocates.org. there is as much variation within libertarianism as there is in conservatism, liberalism, and authoritarianism.
Yes it is true that many libertarians are angry with you. I am glad you are changing your mind on issues but your timing is infuriating. You were finally admitting that Ron Paul was right before the election season began, but then you proceeded to call him dangerous and a kook and a loon — and used your considerable influence to undermine his campaign. Instead you supported the most rabid big government nanny-statist on the stage. Just when we thought you had come around and we’d finally have an influential voice in the media on our side for once — you turned on us. And we felt totally stabbed in the back. That’s why many libertarians are angry with you. They feel you betrayed them. It’s not because you are a newbie and haven’t got it all figured out yet. As you correctly say, we were all newbies once. And we want more newbies. Some of the most respected names in libertarian circles were once rabid neocons — like Tom Woods for
Yup....There are anarchist libertarians, liberal libertarians, constitutional libertarians (my favorite), and constitutional libertarians....
Obviously, there is a wide range of views and acceptance in the libertarian spectrum. If glenn beck cannot be comfortable somewhere in there without pushing his way in - then it is his fault, not the libertarians
last group of libertarian is "conservative libertarians"

Indeed Obama would repeal the Second Amendment and the entire Bill of Rights if he thought he could do it. But Hatch is not so different. He would like to repeal the 4th, 5th, and 6th amendments….

Did anyone read the article…?
1) It was a student-designed survey that students administered to other students for a class project.
2) It was an anonymous.
3) Participation was optional.
4) Geeze already. Don’t be so freakin’ knee-jerk, people!
