Socialism is just a new wrapper to the oldest form of government known to man. When Western Culture exploded into Liberty loving, “nobility” restricting self-government , the old lords and tyrants had to find a new way to convince people to be subjected under their thumbs. People weren’t buying the old “God ordained me as better than you” lies the “nobility” had been using for eons to assert their rule anymore, so those who would rule others absolutely had to find a new tune to sing to convince people of their inherent superiority.
Enter Socialism. As twisted and backwards as any theory of governance ever devised by man, they are actually convincing people to go out and get their tyrants back. What is the greatest evil facing man today? Socialism. At least with the terrorists, we know whom to shoot.

Football is not all that interesting a thing to report on at all. There’s nothing to really ask or to say during the 10 second interview with a coach heading to the half-time locker room. The only thing of any real journalistic interest would be a straight answer to the first question, which Harbaugh understandably did not want to give an answer to.
The other fluff they always ask is just a game they play to get paid. Everyone who knows football knows both the questions and the answers before they are asked, yet the fans still eagerly pay a lot of money every week to hear it. Harbaugh didn’t play the game by the rules here, thus is a jerk.
I guess my question is, why is he a jerk for not playing by stupid rules? Are you not allowed to disagree with rules? Is every rule a good rule? Does the reporter have any responsibility in this interaction? If I ask a stupid question to someone who is heated up, maybe I'm the jerk! Maybe, just maybe, I should have known better.
I will confess, I think John was a little hot headed and could have controlled himself for 30 seconds, but I also don't think the reporter is free of blame. Yet the reporter seems to be getting touted as the victim here.

I agree that it requires significantly less creativity to do what the likes of MST3K does, but that does not invalidate it as a form of legitimate criticism and entertainment in its own right.

“Creation of a sociopath”
No. Sociopaths are what we are creating today in our progressive public school system. This kid is learning to be a psychopath.
I don’t understand recessions at all. I used to think I did, but for the last 10 years we’ve had and recovered from multiple recessions, but my personal finances, buying power, employ-ability, etc has remained virtually unchanged.
What’s it mean when we can’t tell the difference between “recession” and “normal” economies?
What’s it mean when we can’t tell the difference between “recession” and “normal” economies?
It means the fed was successful in their subterfuge and QE4 is on tap to continue the charade.

At the end of it all, Mod, you are saying because some women are raped, all women must be allowed to murder their children. It’s rather like saying, that because some people kill in self-defense, all must be allowed to kill indiscriminately.
And that’s setting aside the fact that the child is innocent of her father’s crimes.

You just typed, “they aren’t being forced to participate, they just have to participate.”

Unlike the very open acts of aggression anyone who even declines to participate in a gay life event receive. We aren’t even allowed to do nothing at all. We must materially support the gay lifestyle or be fined into destitution.

The answer to China’s, and everyone else’s economic problems, is not government stimulus. China’s economy is proof the government is not the answer. If it were, why are the areas where China deregulated the areas of massive economic growth in China?
If the government leaves people alone, they will flourish – both economically and personally. There’s no greater evidence of that than China of the last 20 years, but even China doesn’t seem to see it. Well, they see it, they, like all dictators and dictator-wannabees, just don’t want to lose the power and control.
The government’s only legitimate place in the market is to punish fraud in a way that practicing it is not profitable (thereby preventing it in as many situations as possible). The government should need a compelling reason to say, “No,” not a compelling reason to say, “Yes.”
If we practiced these principles, we really could eliminate poverty and discrimination as we know them today.
Well I don't know about poverty but the opportunities would be there for all that's for sure.
You are spot on. Some of us have seen this coming for years now. Now they want to artificially inflate China's growth to 7%? Watch the hyperinflation take off next.

WhoIs – you don’t seem to understand what secular means. You seem to think secular is atheism. It is not. Secular and Religious are not in opposition with each other. Atheism is a religious point of view and is not secular.
Secular pertains to the things of Earth. Divine (not religious) pertains to the things of Heaven. Religions, including Atheism (and, as a better description to what you espouse, anti-theism), pertain to both.
We have a secular government because our (Christian) founders didn’t want the government to define the tenets of any one person’s religion. It was not to keep religion out of public (that is impossible), but merely to prevent government from using its force to establish one religion at the exclusion of all others.
The only religion I see being excluded form public is Christianity. The only one I see being favored is atheism. I also don’t see this same fervor for anti-theism in Muslim communities in the USA. Why is that?

And basing climate change on 130 years worth of data is like saying an entire day’s weather can be accurately measured by cataloging any single second of it.

Planes get struck by lightning all the time. If they couldn’t handle it, we’d have given up on the practice now as way too dangerous.
They do get struck in the air all the time. Ground strikes, however, on average carry 100 times the amperage as a cloud to cloud strike. This is because there is more of an electrical buildup before it punctures the air/voltage propagation level. Also, the path is very specific on a ground strike- It must travel through the landing gear. In the air, it will skin over the surface of the body of the plane. Orange = burning of hydrocarbon (tire.)

He did the exact opposite of what he promised he’d do when elected. Reminds me most of FDR and Wilson.
Only an attempt by the Greeks to actually live within their means is appropriate. Something they probably were forced to realize when they took power a few months ago.

So Subway should keep Fogle as their spokesman so long as they stipulate none of the money they give him be used to rape children?

The park should at least be some-what reflective of the community it serves, but other than that, that is what freedom of religion means. Ain’t Christian-founded individual rights grand?
Congratulations, you have demonstrated knowledge of the First Amendment greater than that of the Americans for Separation of Church and State.
 August 20, 2015 at 1:11pm
“Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a First Amendment watchdog”
Were that true, should they not first be able to demonstrate even basic knowledge of what the First Amendment protects? They clearly do not understand the establishment clause, so how can they watch over it?
They are liars just like the aclu. The aclu claims to be protectors of liberty, the founder was a communist.

I’m no economist, but this smells of desperation to me. China must maintain its exports or it will crumble. It’s willing to go to the brink of collapse to avert an all-out collapse.
China’s economy is in straights more dire than our own. Why doesn’t China exert more authority over us when it owns so much of our debt? Because it can’t. China knows that if we go down, China goes down with us.
Exactly. They'll actually probably try to INCREASE their exports, to maintain their level of incoming revenue. That's how Japan did it, back in the late '70's - early '80's.

At least the chick earlier had barker skin. This man is as white as any man I have ever seen. How would anyone think otherwise?
And, on top of that, why does it matter to a bunch of people who are supposed to be devoid of any kind of racism?
I don’t care, and I’m one of those racist conservatives.

If Benghazi didn’t sink both her and Obama, this won’t either. The “wrong doing” in this case is far less apparent than her husband’s was. Benghazi was all out in the open, the wrong doing was evident to all, and any cover-up was half-hearted at best, and a serious breach of duty and still wasn’t enough.

Nixon was set up, but a truly honorable man would not have taken the bait. What he did was wrong. That he was tricked into doing so while “they” were watching does not absolve him of the wrong doing, it just highlights the similarly shaky morals of those who caught him doing it.
