    Yo Pastels. Better you should brag about Bush’s reckless domestic economic policies and legacy annual deficit of $1.2 trillion he left the President. The federal deficit for 2009 was $1.2 trillion, which was Bush’s last fiscal year. And let’s not forget that $10 trillion of the cumulative federal deficit occurred under Reagan, Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. watch.

    Well said BadBob, but you will find that ideological driven ignorance drives the show here, not rational thought and sound economic realities. And your are correct regarding the Fed and it was the Fed’s lack of response that led to the first depression, but underestimating the situation and letting it run its course.

    Actually actions like this have to be looked at from the 30,000 foot level not 3,000 feet. The one sided, so called “Free Trade” deals of the 1980′s, concentration of wealth and drop in real wages has place incredible deflationary pressure on the Us economy. And the QE is the only thing that stopped us from collapsing from a cancerous deflationary cycle. If is time to force any and all countries we have a trade agreement with to institute a liveable minimum wage so that their up to now exploited workers can actually afford to buy something from the US. All boats do not rise unless all boats contain enough money to participate in the economy. The US is falling prey to the same issues that has stagnated England’s economy for decades. And concentration of wealth is the number one issue.

    Yo Bozo….. given your great example of a good christian post you obviously don’t despise Freedom of Choice on religious grounds.

    First and foremost the post says nothing about how many species have been studied in this regard which might impact what is “Known” and how misleading the title may well be. Second, the post mentions nothing of the gestation time that such recognition is possible and if it is consistent with Roe v. Wade, then the right of privacy, liberty and self determination would apply more so than your beliefs. To be Pro Choice is to respect and recognize other individuals rights above your own ideology and beliefs. And no fetus and baby are not interchangeable words as they both have temporal definitions. The term baby applies only after birth.

    What kind of people on the staff here and commenting here are so arrogant and self centered in their ideology and beliefs that they won’t let this woman have some peace and privacy in her last days. How sad a group you are that you use the situation to gain eyeballs for your posts and web site or to promote you own beliefs. Spend half the effort improving your own standing with God.

    you really have to hand to our industry leading for profit tech giants who get beat every day by 16 year olds. Perhaps they should start providing half of the services they over bill the government for.

    “61 percent” of women who have abortions are already mothers in an attempt to explain why women who have abortions “ No surprise that Proverbs didn’t read the post once again. As if the 61% is true the conservative republican lie that it is irresponsible, crack head inner city and selfish young professional women is refuted. Not that anyone actually believes the conservative republican lies to begin with.

    Great to see GB taking on the big issues of our time. And yes it might have something to do with the sad mom who wears a playboy bunny costume to show off her fake boobs.

    Does anyone else see the rather stark bias and lack a credibility in that this site has done zero in terms of attacking the TEXAS Hospital that is responsible for the only two cases that originated in the US. Or is there a bias here towards a Texas hospital because of where GB and the majority of the staff now resides?

    “Tahmooressi’s case has led to calls for the Obama administration to push Mexico to release him, and Republicans in particular have criticized the White House for not doing enough to win his release.” No doubt by the same individuals who would love to have 5 more ebola victims in the US and have 3 more similar situations to create FEAR going into the mid term elections. What about the PRESIDENT and STATE department no sharing its behind the scene efforts do you not get. Perhaps the case is a tad bit more complex than you minimal and low information you have been fed.

    @ Rocktroy…. ah yes how easy it is to address ignorance when it is so clearly stated. The war on women refers to the policies regarding contraception and freedom of choice which seek to exploit the fear that both weaken family values and undermine their beliefs. You know the folks who respond by saying there is a war on christianity. And opponents of the minimum wage peddle the fear that it will lead to a reduction in jobs, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. And of course the proponents of Voter Id pitch the fear that there is excessive voter fraud that undermines the electoral process, even though many republicans have been honest enough to admit that it is targeted to reducing voter turnout. These and ebola are perfect examples that the only thing we have to fear is both applied and exploited ignorance. Analogous to Shakespeare’s “I think thoug protests too much”, those that claim to be others to be low information voters are by definition exactly that due to their reliance on radio hosts for information who exploit that very dynamic.

    “America in the end is not defined by fear,”… No but ignorant cowards are. Thank GOD there are health care workers who are willing to use their scientific and medical knowledge as well as their courage to care for ebola patients. You know the true unnamed heros who quietly demonstrate the best of their profession and the best in us, rather than yield to the worst in us and the parasitic clowns (talking heads and pseudo journalists) who seek to exploit as much eyeballs, viewers, etc. by promoting the ignorance of the masses fueled by Cruz, Christie and countless other members of our do nothing and certainly nothing smart House of Reps.

    @Mojo-Man so by your insight rather than lack of evidence regarding the PRESIDENTS academic and testing record you would have to acknowledge that Justice Thomas, while a conservative, suffers from the same Affirmative Action incompetence. Or like so many here do you only hold that opinion and apply that logic to individuals who don’t agree with your ideology and/or beliefs. Because to utilize ideology and beliefs to view, analyze and make decisions as to the world, ones profession etc. would be the height of the ignorance that leads to incompetence.

    “I’m so grateful to be well, and first and foremost I want to thank God,” Vinson said at a press conference” Pretty sad to see a nurse not recognize and thank her care givers first and foremost. As I’m sure if she stayed home and just prayed, she would not have done as well. The state mandatory quarantines are a great lesson in public policy based on ignorance as opposed to medical science. The fact is there have been only two cases of ebola in the US and both of those were nurses who treated a very very sick individual who later died. And it is clear that they were not adequately trained and/or did not follow the protocols close enough.

    You know we got such comprehensive coverage of the deadbeat rancher who didn’t want to pay his grazing fees. How about some coverage of the large companies, farm and ranching associations that are pushing for increasing immigration so they can have access to more workers to exploit.

    “Assisted suicide has been a hot topic recently with a 29-year-old Oregon woman being vocal about her choice to take a lethal dose of prescription drugs through the state’s Death with Dignity Act because she has terminal brain cancer.
    We’re not saying what’s right or wrong, but what we are saying is here is a boy who chose to face it just squarely and didn’t opt for an easy out. By doing that, other people’s lives were made much richer,” Humphrey said. Well frankly, Humphrey should represent “We Ignorant Aholes”. Perhaps, just perhaps the individual who took her own life also received a message from god that inspired her to save herself and her family further suffering and grief. Anyone like Humphrey, this author or those who comment here regarding that courageous woman should join Humphrey’s renamed organization. As your clearly self-serving statements are really about promoting your own beliefs, not about showing any care or mercy for what that woman went through. And ask anyone who has walked farther in their shoes than you and they will tell you that you will have a different perspective about a lot of things during different stages of your life.

    @averagejoe….. well no one has stolen more from the people over the last 20 years than than the investment bankers, AIG and fraudulent mortgage brokers. And I’m sure most of them claim to be conservative as the profit motive is the best of all rationals.

    Ah yes so you equate his jokes with his valid statements about radical islam. And let’s be clear belittling Sister Sarah, Sharon Angle, Christine O’donnell and M. Bachmann is not about women at all, its about gross ignorance and stupidity, which should be belittled as much as possible.

  • October 28, 2014 at 4:25pm

    Similar to jason, it is important to focus on the term radical islam, not islam. But it is amazing what individuals will do to make a non-story a story.
