This guy works for some “anti-discrimination” blah blah place… I smell a plant – like Rosa Parks – a fully staged event designed to appeal to the public’s desire to “right a wrong” even when the “wrong” is a myth.
Why not the palestinians do it all the time. They fake injuries and show off "dead" people.

“While there is life, there is hope” – that the majority of such jihad seekers will similarly wake up from their stupor.
Killing the host cells (humans) containing the Evil (the bad ideas in Islam promoting jihad) does nothing to _Kill the Evil Ideas_. It only empowers the spread of the Cancer via revenge.
Only the cured cells (humans like this guy) can effectively cure the cancer of Evil Ideas within the Jihads while leaving them alive so that they can in turn help cure others and teach the next generation to be more peaceful.
It's happening, but not as fast as the average muslim is being swept up in jihad, unfortunately.
Continuing to pray that God enters the hearts of many Islamic extremists and they see His way. Then have the courage and strength to share His message

I looked into the identical twin gay studies a while back and those studies showed multiple examples of identical (DNA) twins where only one is gay. Were it purely DNA both should be gay or straight.
However, genetics don’t stop when a pair of DNA patterns combine. Epi-DNA affects the activation/deactivation of portions of ones DNA due to ones environmental/mental/emotional state, which are driven by choices of the parents. In the case of the father his choices affect the epi-dna of the sperm as they are developed (month after month) and the mother’s choices affect the epi-dna of the child during development (the mother’s dna contribution is set at the time of her birth). Additionally the choices of the individual during their childhood affects the epi-dna of their cells during puberty.
In short, it is not _a_ choice but rather multiple choices made by parents & child that will determine if the child identifies as “gay” in adulthood.
I joined late and “Due to high demand” I can’t get into the chat. Oh well, catch yall tomorrow (maybe)

She was 14 weeks when found Nov. 26 – The child might have been saved. There doesn’t have to be only two options. A third option which would have ended the pregnancy while saving the child could have been done. We have the technology, we just haven’t pulled it all together yet because both ProLife and ProChoice crowds are too addicted to the fight to actually work towards Changing the Problem.
we do not have the technology to keep a 14 week old fetus alive. we can barely do it with a 25 week old fetus, and when we do the complications are prolonged and severe. this was a tragedy, but given the family's wishes, it was the right decision.

Looks like there is a Chimpanzee costumed human between two other humans without costumes.
To call this offensive is to admit that YOU can’t tell them apart due to YOUR prejudice.

Luckily the power of an EMP falls drastically as distance from ground zero increases (inverse square IIRC) making it difficult for any single warhead to do damage beyond a small radius. The vast majority of electronic devices would not be permanently damaged, some would be fried, some magnetic media will be wiped, and the power may fail for a time but the idea that a single or even multiple EMP detonations will send a country back to a pre-industrial state is a bit of an overstatement.
That said, my server infrastructure friends always suggest that server rooms be built with a Faraday Cage around them (grounded metal mesh in walls, ceiling, and floors) as it is also good protection from lighting strikes.
People hear some scary name and common sense goes out the window. People seem to think it is a magic weapon covers all the US.

I don’t want to sound like too much of a plot geek but Mr. White was cooking Meth not just to cover healthcare bills but also to leave millions to his family since his partners forced him out of the mega-corp he helped found.
True but the medical bills were the catalyst that got him drug cooking (and he refused to accept money from his former partners to pay for the treatment).
I thought he wansn't forced out but left of his own volition to teach... But then again I have only seen 1 Season.
If I remember correctly I think Walt and his partner both liked the same woman and she ended up marrying Walt's partner. Walt took a $5000 buyout for his half of the company because he didn't want to work with the guy he felt stole his girlfriend (and the company beacame worth billions0.

Ray’s key point can be expanded to all Scientific inquiry.
If one does not personally repeat the science and confirm the results then they are accepting the conclusions as a matter of faith in the scientific rigor of others. This faith is far too often misplaced in those who’s income is predicated upon touting a false conclusion. (e.g. AGW fraud by CRU/Penn State)

Riiiight because an administration on the edge of collapse would _never_ modify an “official” email before releasing it.
It is just so hard to create or modify ASCII text that there is no way that the White House could…
Wait a minute!

“They believe in an invisible sky wizard.” <- Typical childish view of God expressed by many atheists who lack critical thinking ability in an effort to belittle and dismiss ideas they fear will cause them to reflect and judge their own thoughts and actions.

“It is simply false to suggest, as I did, that his approach to economic policy was inspired by any aspect of his personal life.”
It is simply false to state that his personal life DIDN’T have a great effect on his approach to economic policy, as it does to all of us, gay, straight, bi, or otherwise.
The degree and direction his personal biases had on his work (w/o original sources) is pure speculation.
What isn’t pure speculation is the repeated failures of the theories he produced that are still clung to by the command & control religion of progressivism.
in any true sense of intent, the 1st amendment is dead, long live the power of peer (the purse) pressure!

So long as he came to the decision to change on his own without coercion, as he claims, then I can only wish him the best of luck.
Being “Gay” is a matter of who you fall in love with, not who you fall in bed with.
Based on his history (lack of male role-model, pressure about him being “femme”, sexual assaults) it sounds like he has played the role expected of him by those who loved him growing up and he has yet to fall in love with any of his sexual partners thus he is still “undefined”.
While I understand the fear of disease it sounds odd to me that a woman would out-right reject a man because he did many of the same sex acts she has likely done.

Was it common to ink text before carving it into stone?
Was this a rough draft? A tossed aside misprint?
In any case it will be interesting to see the full translation.
Good points. Makes sense they would ink before carving.

Sadly Liberalism has shifted from “The Needs of the Many Outweigh the Needs of the Few or the One” to “The Wants of the Many Outweigh the Rights of the Few or the One”.
It is interesting to note that this is a quote from a Star Trek movie wherein the crew (collective) would have never Forced the one (Spock) to commit suicide in order to save them.

Our team has developed a solution to the problems of the current archaic educational system using mostly existing Internet technologies.
Our system could grow the success of KahnAcademy and every other online educational portal at a geometric rate if only we had partners that are truly interested in a real, global, educational redefinition.
If you would like to learn more just ask Glenn.
Our proposed education buffet has been sitting in a Red Folder on Mark Mabry’s desk since it was hand delivered on 12/12/12.
I am a conservative Christian and a secondary science teacher. I became a secondary teacher 5 years ago after many years of college teaching. I was frustrated with students who were unprepared for true critical thinking and experimentation. I was fortunate to have always taught in an environment that was open, honest, and apparently conservative compared to most.
I live and teach in one of the 5 states that did not adopt common core, however our state recently rewrote all of our standards to "more closely align with common core". I use Kahn Academy in my classes frequently, as well as many other internet sources. Nearly all published texts and most internet education sites have the materials aligned to common core, so I have had to be creative in finding many different sources for my students to use so that they receive the balanced, unbiased information they need and deserve.
Home schooling parents need to be aware that most internet home schooling sites, including many of the Christian education sites, are also aligned with common core. If you are depending on one neatly packaged curriculum designed to help you educate your children at home from kindergarten to graduation, you are probably teaching common core standards. Check every source and use many different sources. I cannot stress that enough. If you are unsure how to evaluate the material, find a conservative, Christian teacher through your church or community that will help you evaluate the material.

The Senator is correct in that Drones used in War are more effective at getting the target of interest with far less collateral damage vs. carpet bombing or blindly shelling from just over the hill. The issue is when they are used outside a declaration of War against the specific target and/or used against a U.S. Citizen without due process.
Oh yeah, drones are so much more civilized, Senator. Turn war into a video game and you can kill anyone dear leader, President "Off with their heads!", orders you to kill. Gotta kill an American, too? Due Process? Pssssssh, we don't need no stinkin due process. The king can do what he wants.
"OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!"
thats called silent terrorism
You probably think that "Carpet Bombing " is Paco deep cleaning your carpets.
Really Carpet Bombing"????
We use precision airstrikes, not carpet bombing. And for both mortars and artillery fire we always have an observer, we do not fire blindly. Our rules of engagement mandage positive identification of the enemy to fire. Stop letting the other side dictate the language of the argument.
In Gulf I, B-52's carpet bombed the Iraqis. All the great video we saw of precision bombs were against identified specific targets. The rest the BUFF's did with old style iron bombs.
I know we have all the undeclared wars beginning with Korea up to and including Afghanistan. I understand the due process issues with killing Americans by drone and without due process. How many Americans have been killed abroad by drone strike? I only know of 2. If you know of more, please tell me. Either we use the non-nuclear tools of war or we don't. Since my son is now in Afghanistan should I tell him to desert because Congress didn't declare war?
Baghdad was not carpet bombing in any way that could be compared to what you experienced in Nam. I respect what you went through and I appreciate how difficult that must be for you. As for US casualties by friendly UAS airstrikes, while an important topic, it is dillatory to this conversation as it was not part of the Congressman's argument or definition of "humane." Now, why you chose to bring up whether or not we are in a Congressionally declared war is beyond me. I am not saying not to use our tools of war. If you read my other post, you would see that I developed one of the SOPs for UAS use in Afghanistan. My point in this particular post was simple, colloquialisms should not be defined by the talking heads. Even are dumb bombs are smarter than you had and a heck of alot better than what was used in Wesel. So, to use blatantly inflamitory terms that bring to mind such extreme collatoral damage is a wreckless use of language. We need to be honest with our words.
I mean this sincerely. My experience is 43 years old. I respect your current experience, knowledge and skill. My son is in Afghanistan now and I hope he benefits from your work. Thank you for your service.
