Speaking of Duck Dynasty, it is high time for the GOP to get its ducks in a row pretty darn quick if they expect to win back the White House. In an election cycle that comes on the heals of an epic failure of two terms featuring a total lack of leadership, this should be a GOP slam dunk – but I’m not so sure. This is a party with two ideologies right now, and there is no sign of it coming together. Please guys, pull together quick. Another Democratic administration will doom this country.
Re: Duck Dynasty - Robertson's rant was the Todd Akin moment of CPAC. Whoever thought inviting him to speak was a good idea ought to be spanked, twice a day, for a month, hard.

This is a good example of a several things. 1. Our “Earth system” of land, oceans, and atmosphere is way more complex than most of the people talking about it realize. It is all interconnected and extremely difficult to model accurately. 2. Even those who are truly experts in the field of climate will acknowledge that we have much to learn yet about how it all works. 3. The only ones proclaiming definite conclusions on this topic on either side of the argument are the ones who know the least about how it all works. Stay humble, my friends.

What a monumentally stupid thing to tell the American public in view of recent events. The clown show goes own.

McCain is right about Ukraine. They disarmed their nuclear weapons years ago with the assurance that we would stand by them. They are being invaded by Russia, and we have done next to nothing. Russian forces within the borders of the Ukraine shot down a civilian airliner, and we made a loud noise, but did nothing else. If we don’t step in and provide the Ukrainian military with arms to repel this invasion, it will be a shameful thing for us. They don’t need MRE’s and blankets. They need bullets, artillery shells, and smart weapons. This is the only language Putin understands. Think he would have invaded Ukraine when Reagan or George W. was President? I doubt it. He knows a weak sister when he sees one. McCain must be thinking, “How in the name of all that is holy did I get defeated by this clown in 2008?”
A poly-tick-ian admitting his (perhaps) actual opinion, I've not been a big McCain fan over the years, but here I must give him a big Bravo Zulu.
As opposed to the (pos)POTUS usual conduct.
Minstrel: [singing] Brave Obama ran away... Tee times so hard to get today
Obama: No! Who took my putter away, away!
Minstrel: [singing] bravely ran away away...his caddy left unto the fray
Obama: I didn't, I never!
Minstrel: [singing] When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled. The 19th hole has Colt malt liquor, so I've heard it said
Obama: I never did and no it don’t!
Minstrel: [singing] Yes, brave Obama turned about, and valiantly, he chickened out.
Obama : Oh, you liars and haters all
Minstrel: [singing] Bravely taking to his feet, he beat a very brave retreat, his score card trampled 'neath his feet. A brave retreat by brave Obama.
Minstrel: [singing] He is packing it in and packing it up And sneaking away and buggering off and chickening out and pissing off home, Yes, bravely he is throwing in the sponge.

“Astonishing” is too kind a word for it. Idiotic is a better fit. Negotiating with liars whose declared aim is our destruction seems foolish, does it not? The only language the Iranians understand is threats and pain.
word: Think this is all aimed at achieving that ' fundamental transformation' that the Obama I Hate America crowd is trying so desperately to accomplish .

Renee, I know you are busy with your activist career and all, but your fetus called, and she disagrees that it was the best decision of your life. It sure wasn’t for hers.

Kerry, you are wasting your time with these clowns. They talk through both sides of their mouths and will tell you what you want to hear, all the while doing the complete opposite behind your back. Write these guys off and let the DoD plan the next move against them. Use your energy to go help Ukraine fight back against the Russians.

Jerk wads did diddly until they were given the ultimatum to solve it or go to the principal’s office, and then they found a solution. Unions stickin’ it to the man and businesses across the country. Next time they pull this stunt, nationalize it and fire some of these twerps.

Pick up any basic oceanography text and manganese nodules are well described. They’ve been harvested for decades from the ocean floor. They aren’t metal balls. They are deposits of metal ores – rocks. Just because the author of this article knows nothing of any of this does not make it news. Sheez!

Since when do the movies most loved by the public win the Oscar? Sometimes, but more often than not, they don’t. The Oscars are some kind of artsy political thing that I could care less about. Like all of the other entertainment awards. You can add the Nobel Prize as well. That thing is totally bogus any more.

One of the outcomes of the entitlement generation is a large segment of youths who think they can do whatever they please as long as their group is large enough to neutralize law enforcement. There is no longer any sense of personal responsibility or accountability for personal behavior. Ronald Reagan said it well: “We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.”

When the scandalous starts passing for mainstream entertainment, whether in books or movies, we are heading the wrong direction. We’ve been doing that for a long time, but the release of this film underscores it. I can only think that this story may appeal to some women who crave naughty excitement in their lives but are only willing to do it vicariously.

Hey, I guessed right. Am I good or what?

Some of us appreciate a bit of good news over the airwaves each night, Maher. You are sounding like a glass is half empty kind of guy. As for a discussion of climate change, that is a subject better left for a format that can devote the proper length of time to a complicated subject. The Nightly News format and time constraints doesn’t really lend itself to that topic, compared to a program like 60 minutes.

I cannot fathom why anyone – anyone – would care to hear what this worthless piece of mung would have to say, much less pay to see him “perform.” It’s probably the 40% of America who thinks Obama is doing a good job.
I don't listen to it myself, but always thought it funny that these "artists" are essentially reciting poetry to other peoples music (sampling). Yet, the poets consider themselves gangsters. Imagine 60's beatniks crossed with common parolees.

Very true. This is old science masquerading as a new discovery. Weird.

Suspended without pay for six months = fired, my friend. Brian, you may be able to get a job on Inside Edition or some game show, but you are done as a newsman. Tragic character flaw.

Trump is a relentless self-promoting narcissist, and his feelings are easily hurt. Get over yourself, Donald. You aren’t running for President and everyone knows it. It’s all part of selling the Trump brand.

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.
