@Giantsquid1: As a former sailor and a gamer I take offense to that statement. Those 10-year old CoD players don’t swear with the creativity that sailors do. They just string offensive words together with no rhyme or reason.

Bacon, why does he need to cite sources for the claim that Marriage predates Christianity? Marriage predates recorded history…

I’m with RRFlyer on this one…
Where in the Bible does it talk about us finding a large cache of royal mummies?
Seriously Babylon, please explain your comment a bit more, it makes zero sense.

No, they wouldn’t. That’s not how light and other forms of matter/energy travel. They would also be looking into the past, just from a different location.

That’s interesting considering there were only three Americans on the flight…
So they’re giving out extrememly high level security clearances to non-citizens now?
Got any sources that are credible?

The unit was Counts Per Minute apparently. It’s a guy who built his own Geiger counter and went to the beach with it.
The county officials put the estimated exposure rate at 100 microREM.
(I’m from the area, these aren’t exactly pro-nuke people. The area is disgustingly and painfully progressive/liberal/psycotic. Hell, the town of Half Moon Bay itself uses imminent domain to “preserve open space” and the county allows a trust to buy up farmland to do something similar. Anything that would make radiation look bad they’d push for, when the environmental wackos from the county aren’t worried about it you probably shouldn’t be.)

As a submarine veteran who is from the area that the geiger counter video was taken and I can tell you that those radiation levels mean nothing.
Take a look at the article about it written by the local paper:
The context of the numbers you see is extremely important. Even if his 400+ CPM is accurate, the amount of time it would take to recieve a dangerous dosage would take years of direct exposure.
It’s fear mongering, pure and simple. You’d be exposed to more radiation from the sun by sunbathing on the same beach than you would from the radiation he found there.

@Oldvet: After looking at our tax, regulatory, and other government run systems you automatically assume that our immigration system is setup to be fair, efficient and effective despite it being a patchwork of laws built up heavily under the influence of Progressives and Unions? You might want to rethink that stance.
We don’t have to agree that the left is correct and give amnesty for all, but we can recognize that there is a problem that needs to be addressed at a fundamental level instead of uselessly throwing away billions fighting the problem let’s fix the source of it. And in order to do that we must approach it and understand that the system is difficult, flawed, and painfully slow.
I don’t agree with all of the Immigration Policy Centers solutions, but they understand the problems in the system that the illegals are trying to get around and that’s a good place to look at to start addressing the problem in a meaningful and constructive way.

I found the “Breaking Down the Problems” article on this link a very good resource for understanding where the problems really are in the system.
I used to be part of the “punish the illegals” crowd until I learned how much of a mess the actual system is from some people I worked with who went though the process. It’s a nightmare and I’d never wish it on anybody. We have so many hold over laws from the Wilson and Union thug periods that we really need to look at comprehensive reform.
I’m personally going to hold my judgment until I see this bill, it might actually be a good step in the right direction.

That party already exists, it’s the Libertarian party.

Shot for suspicion of terrorism… You really think about what you just said. Especially when the administration has conservative leaning organizations and individuals listed as the likeliest sources of domestic terrorism.

“Monitored from a distance”? Okay…
Lighten up, this isn’t anything more than making a backyard apartment for your elderly relative so that they can stay with you, have their own privacy and independence, and a nice place to stay that can keep track of them in case they have an emergency.
It’s actually pretty neat. Yeah sure it’s expensive, but it has tons of useful things that you won’t think about if you built one yourself.
And who said they were confined in there? This is meant for a back yard. They’re only stuck there if you force them to be. Is it really any worse than a Granny Attic? If anything, this is a major improvement over that concept.

Heh, well technically I spelled the word in its UK form, but yeah that’s amusing. Score 1 internet for you sir. (Here’s my correction *misspell)
Also, I’m by FAR not a catholic. I don’t believe that catholic faith is the correct one and have many reservations with their doctrine. My wife is an ex-catholic and most of my pagan friends are all ex-Catholics. I’ve heard enough about the faith and some of the people in it, but I won’t call them filthy or anything else along those lines. I’ll just continue to let them live their lives as they see fit as long as they are worshiping in peace.
That’s because I’m not filled with hate, like you. I will stand up for them because they have a right to worship, just as you do. I may think they’re wrong on their interpretation of everything and have problems with their doctrine/faith but it isn’t enough to drive me into a frothing rage over the thought of someone being one and targeting nameless followers with hate filled rants. That type of thinking leads to genocide.
Congrats, you think they’re wrong in their faith, good for you. Move on dude, seriously, you might want to see a therapist or at least get your Thetan levels checked…

Oh, and Tommy, please at least look at the my screen name when you’re trying to type a response using it. There’s no need to mispell it. It’s right there in front of you. We won’t judge you if you cheat on this spelling test.
It’s MONTARA-MISSILE-MAN but without the dashes
November 21, 2012 at 11:26am
@Tommy, who said my feelings were hurt? I just can’t get over how much your typing skills remind me of the way Gollum speaks, it’s actually making me laugh really freaking hard.
November 21, 2012 at 10:59am
Seriously, it’s everything I can do to not read that out loud and add in “little hobbitses” every time he says “filthy catholics”
Try reading everything he’s saying but change every instance of “filthy catholic” to “filthy little catholic hobbitses”, and be sure to do it out loud in a Gollum voice.
November 21, 2012 at 9:40am
Anyone else think Tommy types the way Gollum speaks?
November 21, 2012 at 9:36am
Thanks for the clarification on that. I’m not familiar with the program enough to know the specifics on it.
I guess I could spend 5 minutes with google, but…

@Barb: Oh, no I agree with that, but all I’m saying here is that if food stamps already cover OTC drugs, why not allow it to cover BC as well. It’s cheaper than covering the doctors visits and their BC like we are already doing.
But I’m relatively ignorant on what exactly food stamps can be used for as my family and I have never used them, so it may be a moot point to even speculate if food stamps could be used if can’t be used for other OTC drugs.
