    Let’s see. The Fed is printing money as fast as it can ever since the crisis of ’08. The companies Maher cites are paying back money borrowed from the Fed. Hmm. Annnnnd, he cites percentages paid back above and beyond that equate to loans at about 0.1% annual interest. I wish I could get a deal like that. Let’s see. I will be totally irresponsible with other peoples money (that they entrusted to my care), lose their shirts for them, borrow inflated dollars from the Fed at 0.1% interest; dollars that are backed by the full faith of the USA, in other words, ME, the taxpayer. Oh, yeah, socialism is great. Puny little people like me get to bail out AIG and GM, all the while suffering the worst form of taxation, INFLATION via printing money out of thin air. Inflation punishes the little guy while allowing government and governments friends off the fiscal hook. Maher is simply a despicable, lying, creep.

    This happens more than we know. What kind of desperation would drive a person to do such a thing. Combine that despair with the ignorance that at 35,000 ft altitude, it is -60 degrees F and less than 1/3 of sea level oxygen and you end up with, for lack of a better word, a corpse-icle.

    I’m not a mathematician or an engineer, but I do know that water has considerable mass. Rolling 800 lbs of anything down a hill, the bottom of which is populated with structures and people is stupid. The stupidity of youth. I was pretty stupid at that age also. Glad no one was hurt. Of course, I’ve been shoveling the white-trash-that-falls-from-sky for three days straight and I am keenly aware of just how heavy it is.

    Sikorsky is located in CT. It’s right off the Merritt Parkway outside of Milford. Somebody testing a drone? Saw the accident as a perfect test scenario? I admit that Hartford is a fair distance from the Sikorsky plant though.

    “How many millions of dollars do you feel you are entitled to from the rest of us?”

    It’s okay for you to stick your hand in my pocket, but not this woman. Please explain why.

    38 mm. Hmmm. A hand held punt gun. 1.5 inch bore would shoot a 10 oz. lead slug. I’ll shoot it if I can mount it on the bed of my pick-up. Otherwise, I’ll pass. I have a light frame that would have trouble with the recoil and I’m old. /s Hahaha! Love picking on the editors. A 38mm hand “cannon” for sure.

    Why can I not see the image every time I am scanned? There is no reason the signal cannot be split so that I see what they see.

    I do not like being touched by strangers and am not afraid of the tiny amount of radiation from the scanners. I prefer not being touched and I really prefer the women in my family not being touched. Call me a chauvinist.

    These “stats” are total bull. Any statistical analysis must compare apples to apples. What is the suicide rate for non-veterans? A quick look at CDC numbers shows the rate for males age 10-24 to be about 11/100,000 in 2009. This is a “rate” of about FOUR PER HOUR or ONE EVERY 15 MINUTES which is FOUR TIMES the rate of veterans. OK, this is another example of manipulating numbers and is as full of bull as HP. A true “study” would compare rates for non-veterans in the same age groups. “Active-duty” is male and female age 18-??? There is simply not enough information provided to make any determination whatsoever comparing vets vs. non-vets. I CALL BULLSHALE.

    We have been eating genetically modified organisms for thousands of years. I give you the humble species Brassica oleracea which man has bred to produce broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprout, kale, cabbage and many others. Yes. All of these vegetables are of the SAME species and man has modified this species to produce these delicious and nutritious wonders. We’ve done the same thing to nearly every crop we grow and every animal we raise. Without genetic modification we do not even have man’s best friend, Canis lupus familiaris to keep us happy. We also eat billions to trillions of micro-organisms daily along with all the poisons and wastes these critters produce. Unless we are strict cannibals (eaters of only food identical to “self”), every one of us sustains his life by eating proteins and DNA that is not-”self”. Since everything we eat is foreign, (not-”self”) it is inevitable that some people will have allergies to some foods. Should there be a careful watch on gene splicing? Of course, but eating GMO’s has been a part of the success of our species. Beats starvation any day. People are fat because they eat too much and food is plentiful and cheap. An easy way to make everybody thin is to make food very expensive. Yeah, we really want that.

    Use wikimapia dot org to see this intersection. Two nearly perpendicular rail lines with one automobile overpass directly over the intersection of the rails.

    The premise of this article is flawed. You simply do not mock former presidents to their face. It would be unimaginably crass and rude. I have no positive things to say about Mr. Clinton, but if I met him, I would be respectful. Could also be that Colbert is a known leftist, whose sister would beat him to a pulp if he mocked Clinton directly to his face or otherwise. The sister still has political aspirations.

    KADSTER, ahh yes, I suspected you had some “issue” with ethanol. I thought perhaps just moral opposition, but I understand better now that you are being more transparent. My last sentence in my first comment was comparing the toxicities of two poisons, so I wondered at your initial post. Indeed, intoxicants lead many into the personal hell of addiction. In any case, I was simply trying to point out that the smart thief would use denatured ethanol not isopropanol. Denatured ethanol’s bitterness is easily covered by the bitterness of many mixers and won’t kill (usually) the customer being cheated (also, I would bet that the denatured ethanol is not 100% substituted. Perhaps 1 part denatured ethanol to 3 parts potable ethanol.). Make the customer acutely ill for a short time? You betcha. On day at a time, friend.

    KADSTER01, dihydrogen monoxide is also poisonous. When consumed in large quantities, severe hyponatremia can develop which is often fatal. If inhaled, a volume of dihydrogen monoxide as small as half a cup can kill. The poison is in the dose. You do understand that ethyl alcohol and ethanol are two names for the same chemical and ethanol is the alcohol in alcoholic beverages? Not being snarky, just asking.

    Agreed, when a rational person attends a speech and the speaker starts making offensive comments, the rational man WALKS OUT.

    “Rubbing” alcohol is also available as 70% denatured ethanol. The denaturants are usually bitter and cause stomach/intestinal distress, but will not kill a healthy person. So, if you ate out, had a few cocktails, went home and had cramps, bloating and “the runs”, it may not have been food poisoning or lactose intolerance. It may have been the bartender stealing booze by replacing it with denatured ethyl alcohol. This dirty practice is probably fairly common. Agreed that isopropanol is much more toxic than ethanol.

    When the PA DEP (Dept. of Environmental Protection) inspects the medical facility I work at, a radiopharmacy, we have to have every i dotted and t crossed. They are thorough and ruthless in their zeal to protect “the public” from exposure to radioactive materials (medical isotopes are very unlikely to injure anyone in the public sphere). No political motives my rear end. PAH! What a liar.

    America, where all men are created equal: Whooda thunk 5000 calories a day would make us so not the same?

    In my food fighting days, I’d crumble my cookie up in my hands and hit four or six targets at once. I called it my “sawed-off cookie”. Very effective. Heh.
