Gone are the days when a scientist would be content with a modest salary and the thrill of making a new discovery (or understanding an old one) were payment enough. These guys want the big salaries that people in their field couldn’t hope to attain without government money.
Any scientist who upsets the apple cart will be destroyed.
It won’t be for another generation when this dogma can be overturned in ‘polite’ circles. Hansen will be converted to Co2 (naturally thru decomposition) before that happens.

The more they state the 97 percent phrase, and the more people look at that number the more obvious it becomes that science isn’t whats at stake here, its dogma.
Scientist have certainly showed that they are all too eager to jump on the bandwagon when government money and social ‘progress’ is the motivation. DDT, is but one example, so is global warming. Look at the Nazi scientists who endorsed everything the party told them to. To think our scientists are any less corrupt is just childish, especially the ones who are mostly interested in their career growth.

Jalapino Bacon mac and cheese sounds delectable, especially after a few beers.
I think this kids main problem aside from all the other stuff is his face, that smirk invites a smack.

One article, he states he is religious, now he states there is liberal bias in the MSM, as most liberals know and some have already admitted.
I think he’s trying to get a job in conservative media, not sure if he’s sincere about any of this.
I'll stop watching Fox if they even think of hiring this "gay clown."

I never bought the spin that the current first lady was beautiful (amazing arms? please). On the other hand I never put down her looks, she is about as good as she can look, she isn’t beautiful but she doesn’t have that much control over it. She does try and that is a good thing.
On the other hand, if someone like Melania is blessed with good looks, why put her down for it? Assuming she’s dull because she is good looking? She isn’t into politics? Maybe she has a life to live!

He sticks up for his wife, because politics isn’t his whole life. He didn’t need to do a focus group to tell him how to respond.
There is something wrong with people who make their entire life about politics. Look at the Clintons, nothing they say isn’t determined by a group of advisors, I get the same vibe off of Jeb.

So you saying that because I invest my 401K in mutual funds instead of just spending that money when I was young, and I eventually end up with money to retire lavishly in Arizona in a retirement community I didn’t earn that money?
Hate me all you like, investing double blind or otherwise is how people earn money by giving it to people who invest it in wise ventures. Its not a sin to be in the money business.

I think too many people think that those who are not wealthy are somehow more virtuous than those who have made money. In many cases its the opposite.
Its an easy fall back position for the covetous among us to make themselves feel morally superior to wealthy people when in fact the reason they aren’t wealthy is because they have never taken a long hard look at themselves to discover their own character flaws.

If you have an idea that will make him 7 million he might just do that! Otherwise you’ll have to make that million on your own.
Actually if you have anything that can make him money he'll just take it, using government power if necessary (those nasty little things you probably used to call crony-capitalism and eminent domain). He "happen(s) to agree with it (Kelo) 100 percent" - Trump to Neil Cavuto.

Weird how Romney tried to distance himself from his wealth while Trump is putting it front and center.
I think in Trumps case its a smart move. People really believe he can bring prosperity to the US. Its time we elect a president who isn’t ‘just like one of us’, we need someone who knows about money and can articulate policies to make us prosperous again.
Or... he doesn't understand that character is the measure of a man, not money.
This time, I think it's important that he let all know he's very rich, and can't be bought.
I think that is because Trump can point to a building a say "I own that." or "I built that." and be able to say how much money he made by doing so. I don't think the majority of people have a problem with a successful person as long as that person has actually produced something of value. Romney's problem was that he was rich and he didn't actually create or produce anything. I remember someone questioning his investments during the last election and his response was that his investments were in a "double blind trust" and he had no idea what he was invested in. Its that type of rich that people hate. The kind where millions of dollars magically appear in your bank account and you have no idea where it came from. You've done nothing to "earn" it, not even make the decisions about what to invest in. Romney was that kind of rich.
Look at his track record. The only people he's made money for were already rich. He got plumbers and electricians and all sorts of blue collar people involved in his dealings in Atlantic City, and bankrupted them out of their life savings.
It's all a gag, and it's hilarious you're falling for the "WE'RE ALL GONNA BE RICH" line. Get out there and bust your butt, and stuff your savings under the mattress. Trump's not gonna make a lick of difference when it comes to your nut, sorry.

They do not use the money to fund abortions, that would be wrong.
They use taxpayer money to fund democratic campaigns.
That in turn buys protection for abortion. It's racketeering.

Its a shame he died, but for a little perspective, house building, roof prepare and tree maintenance are all high risk occupations that many men die or get severely handicapped doing. (a workman nearby died when a palm frond fell and cut his artery) I think a lot of the interest in the story is the unusual occupation, we don’t get to read stories about men who got a broken back falling off a house.
Personally, I don’t get on a ladder unless its absolutely necessary, and I don’t consider Christmas lights absolutely necessary so I don’t put them up. Not worth a lifetime of pain.

Our kids know not to reveal this information to anyone.
1) Firearms are very expensive, well worth stealing (if you know where they are!). Ive had relatives who had their guns stolen, we’re talking hundreds of dollars and a huge headache.
2) keep the bad guys guessing, I may or may not have a rocket launcher pointing at the front door, I’ll never tell!
I don’t mind a survey by students for a student paper. Especially if no names are on the paper. My kids would tell them to f-off but thats my kids.

DDT, nuff said how much the left cares about poor dark skinned people.

I guess I would do the same thing, something about a hornets nest, ya got to poke it.

“I know in my heart that my child is not a monster,” the admitted killer’s mother said to the victim’s family. “We’re two families here in major tragedy.”
Thats why the heart is deceitful. If I were part of the family of the girl and this dummy wanted to hug out our ‘shared’ tragedy … well lets leave it at that
Kelly's Mother, i'm sorry but your sion IS MONSTER. He kidnapped, raped amd killed a girl and then stashed her \body. ONLY A MONSTER DOES THAT! And drugss is no excuse for it. Ther is no excuse! sO QUIT YOUR WHINING AND GO LIVE THE RESST OF YOUR LIFE WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAQT YOU GAVE BIRTH TO AND RAISED A monster! You are lucky you weren't charged with contributyory negligence in giving birth to him and raising him!

Hey, how about these giant corporations use their wealth to out these anonymous posters? Im sure we would all like to put a real face to the avatar.
 September 28, 2015 at 2:42pm
the left doesn’t like this, they believe living in the forest, dying from an infected finger at age 18 is more noble than living in the modern world and Christianity has nothing to provide these people, (give them the Gospel, they can accept it or reject it)
They are always pro-choice except when it comes to dark skinned poor people.
You have no idea what the left likes and what they don't. Are you saying you can read minds? That would make you demonic now wouldn't it. Please think before you speak! God Bless You from a pro-life republican that is embarrassed from all the bigot comments on here.
