    Bill didn’t explain anything! C’mon, Science Guy, you could have whipped a little Gay-Lussac’s Law of Gases on the folks and settled this. If you hold the volume constant, there is a direct relationship between the temperature of the gas and the pressure it exerts on the container. Temperature goes down, so does pressure. Temperature goes up, so does pressure. Plenty of good videos out there this week to demonstrate this principle.

    Garbage move, Walton.

    I couldn’t possibly care less what this young woman thinks. With her resume, her comments don’t deserve my attention.

    This is what passes for truth in today’s society: take a survey and see what the majority thinks. This is a question for science, and the scientific method doesn’t rely on popular opinion. It relies of observation and testable hypotheses. There may be a few scientists in Congress, but precious few of them are qualified to declare anything on this subject. Actually, they are just echoing the findings of the latest (5th) meeting of the IPCC, which is the international organization made up of world leaders (and many scientists) on climate change. We don’t need Congress to declare anything. If they want to propose a bill based on IPCC recommendations, then that is another matter.

    The President and his administration’s tortured wording is due to his firm belief that mainstream Islam bears no responsibility for extremist terrorism. The rest of the world has now had enough of that and understands that Islam must play a major part in ridding the world of extremists or they will soon run the risk of being painted with the same broad brush. Europe has finally woken up to the reality of things – about a decade late. Obama never will wake up to it. He isn’t even interested.

    Folks are beating up the President over not attending, and I rarely defend him, but on this one I give him a pass. We should have sent Holder to the rally. He was in Paris. But after we are busting our hump for 13 years fighting terrorists in Afghanistan, almost alone, all of the sudden Europe grows a conscience after some cartoonists are slaughtered, holds a rally, and gets indignant at the USA for not attending their impromptu parade? Sorry, folks. If you are serious about this, France and Germany, step up to the plate and really get involved in killing these maniacs. Parades won’t do it.

    Murdoch is correct. The world of Islam must police itself. As for Rowling claiming to being born a Christian, that is rather embarrassing. She was born British, but not a Christian. Becoming a Christian is an individual decision to follow Jesus Christ. It has nothing to do with your heritage. God has many children, but no grandchildren.

    Holder and the President have decided not to ever utter the phrase “radical Islam”, because that would admit that the extremists have a connection to a religion that they keep telling us is peaceful. The problem is, this thing isn’t going to be solved for good until the world of Islam deals with the terrorist extremists. It has to be handled from within, and the world of Islam will not do it until the rest of the world forces them to by isolating them economically from the rest of the world. After the events of the past weeks, the rest of the world may be getting close to making that demand.

    Well, there were two NFL playoff games to watch. But if you want the real scoop, here it is: To join the parade, you had to be willing to say the phrase “Islamic extremists”, and he just couldn’t bring himself to say those words. That would maybe possibly offend all of those peaceful muslims around the world, and President Obama certainly wouldn’t want to do that.. Wouldn’t want to offend the 1.2 billion muslims worldwide who fail to acknowledge that their religion has a big problem – people in their mosques who want to kill people just because they are not muslim. The only way for these terrorists to be wiped out for good is from within by the will and action of muslim nations. That won’t happen until the rest of the world sends them the message that they better get busy or they will have no place in the world marketplace. We may be getting close to that day.

    Our beloved leader no longer sees the USA as a world power, so it probably didn’t occur to him that he would be missed at this rally. Not sure what it achieves, anyway. What we need is more ordnance on target to solve this problem, not parades.

    Don’t drop the grade, professor. Fail them. They learned nothing.

    Just because a guy is found not guilty of murder doesn’t mean he is a good citizen. I think public opinion of George was never high, and his ongoing troubles seem to be bearing that out.

    If I walked into a party and Shep was there, I would do a 180 and swing by Dairy Queen on the way home and count my blessings that I didn’t have to suffer through any time with this blow-hard. I guess he keeps his job because of his provocative and quirky manner, as displayed in this incident. Some might find it entertaining. I think he is a knucklehead.

    It is possible that fracking could trigger quakes near fault zones, but possibly in a beneficial way. What folks dread is “The Big One”, in which pressure builds up along the fault over a long time period until one day all of that pressure build-up is released in a large quake. Fracking could conceivably trigger minor, less damaging quakes periodically, relieving the building pressure at intervals and avoiding the Big One. Then again, fracking in an area without faults could trigger minor quakes in places folks have never experienced them, and that could be alarming. So many possibilities.

    What a nothing article. Do some info gathering before you write a story.

    I enjoy O’Reilly when he is calm and collected, but some days he is just way over the top with his righteous indignation. Today I switched the channel after listening to him deliver his memo in a sing-songy condescending manner and then he proceeded to be very crabby to Juan and Mary Katherine. I have better things to do than watch a grown man pout and grouse for an hour. Be professional, Bill.

    These researchers don’t know yet how worldviews are formed? Are you kidding? Mine was formed by having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. You guys could start from there and ask some other folks.

    Sarah approaches life from a biblical perspective, which holds dear the fact that humans were God’s special creation in His own image, a being with whom He could have a personal relationship. That simple view determines how she approaches the treatment of the animal world. She is a hunter, who enjoys harvesting animals for their meat, but that doesn’t mean she is cruel to animals. People are designed to be omnivores, God gave us dominion (stewardship) over the planet, and PETA will never accept that. Sarah gets it. Animals we chose as pets deserve to be treated well, but this furor over her son standing on the dog is just stupid.

    Bad idea, Mike. After the long run of your show, basically an “Aw Shucks” version of Hannity with musical interludes, you can’t really expect the folks to take you seriously as a candidate for Prez. Maybe there is a cabinet post in your future, but I don’t see President happening for you.

    I don’t think Rome is so stupid as to think he wouldn’t rile a whole category of folks up with his tweet. He was being deliberately provocative as usual, and so his claim of not wanting to bully anyone is vacuous. He’s in show business and his job is to be a jerk. Period.
