I think your kids will be ok as long as what they are reading isn't the Bible.
Yes, they should watch the inconvenient truth instead.
Great, dumb and dumber have been heard from. Good you guys could add something.
Collateral damage, i.e. murdering innocent civilians, is not a moral, ethical, or legal way to tackle terrorism. That alone is reason enough to oppose it.
Collateral damage is not murder. You save more lives by killing terrorists. Do you know why we give vaccines to our kids even though some end up dying? Because it saves more lives than it takes. It's a concept short sighted people are not capable of understanding.
Wow, drone strikes are just like vaccines. Pretty amazing thought even from a neocon cop apologist librul with an electric car. I'm impressed.
Actually your statements tell me you can't tell the difference between right and wrong. That you are willing to sacrifice innocent lives to give rights to terrorists.
So killing innocent bystanders is your idea of telling right from wrong? Perfect. I couldn't ask for better.
I think terrorists should be captured if possible to gain intelligence or killed if not. But no one should have unilateral power to do so. There needs to be a system of checks and balances to avoid the kinds of mistakes that have been made time and again. Killing innocent men, women, and kids generates a lot more terrorists than the number of terrorists (if any) you kill along with innocent bystanders. The collateral damage as you put it might make 3rd page of the news in US for a day, if at all. It plays loud and clear front and center for years in the islamic world. The US government is the best terrorist recruiter on the planet at this point.
I hold you responsible for the Yazidi massacres massacres along with Dan, SBH and Obama.
Now you are sounding nuttier than bgmal4. Are you going into false flags, zionists world order, and first aid case colors next? ISIL wouldn't have existed at all if the US hadn't invaded Iraq. The US never controlled central or western Iraq even at the peak of the Iraq war. Mosul was never under control, atrocities happened there in 2008 with peak US troop numbers. ISIL was operating freely then. Look at the persecution of the assyrian christians in 2008. The much heralded surge only drove ISIL out of the area around baghdad. US troops could have stayed in iraq forever without making any difference. Look up how the british 20 year occupation of iraq went.
All the US managed to do in iraq is kick off a civil war between iran sponsored shia and suadi sponsored sunni that will go on basically for ever at this point no matter how many troops we send/don't send. Plenty of people said that was what would happen in 2003, you know all the people called unpatriotic by people like you. I had a guest column printed in USA today saying not only would invading iraq turn into a vietnam but the country would eventually splinter into sunni, shia, and kurdish regions. With the rise of iraq as a proxy war between iran and suadi arabia that won't even happen. It will just be and endless battleground korea style with boundries shifting back and forth.
If the US really wanted to do something about terrorism we would have invaded saudi arabia not iraq.
Oil is the worst pollutant. Charging at night is the least, because coal based power plants are not needed due to the low demand. They go nuclear power.
Bullshit. Coal plants are base load plants the same as nuclear. Peaking plants are hydro and gas turbine. Load following plants are hydro, diesel engine, or natural gas turbine. http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2015/02/18/electric-car-benefits-air-myths-pollution-health-column/23641729/
You guys complain day and night about drones, innocent people being killed, we are murderers, human rights abusers, torturers and all that BS, while tens of thousands get raped, murdered, slaughtered, and enslaved.
Great, it's ok because they do it. I haven't heard that since 3rd grade.
Did it ever occur to you that americans are supposed to be better people than ISIS? Looking at our faults and correcting them part of how that happens. The fact that you would even say that
killing terrorists saves more lives then it takes from collateral damage.
means you are truly unworthy of american citizenship. You simply don't understand even the most basic principals that the country was founded on.
I now drive a 100% electric car.
Charged with electricity provided by coal fired generating plants who have very successfully avoided upgrading their pollution controls for 40 years and counting.
Still looking at all this. My kid isn't dyslexic, but other studies have shown a relationship between learning early and IQ level. I think I'm sticking with formal reading/writing instruction starting around age 5 and see what happens.
So just do it and don't worry about it. Both my kids started reading before starting school so I didn't have to worry about when to introduce it.
All these studies fail to show how Germany starts formal reading/writing instruction at age 7 and has some of the best educated populace there is. Almost all germans are fluent, really fluent, in at least 2 languages, most in 3. I've hosted literally hundreds of young people from around the world over the years. The germans have far and away the best english skills. There is simply no comparison. They are also some of the most literate, able to discuss a wide variety of subjects in depth.
I think that there a certain number of skills to be learned. Starting one skill earlier just pushes back another one to a later time. Kids can't learn everything at once.
The duggar kid's dick in his sister for starters...
The new motto of the republican party. Vice is nice but incest is best.
If she becomes too damaged, we'll have to elect Sanders. Good luck with the expedition!
If the choice comes down to hillary, sanders, or any of the 7 dwarfs of the republican party, sanders might not be so bad.
See told you she was on the up and up.
Your link has nothing to do with hillary.
I have been assured by a number of patnet posters that the fact the police can stop and harrass you for no reason at all, search your person/car/luggage, and confiscate what they find without ever having to prove wrong doing does not mean america is a police state.
I believe Germany practices this.
Germany does practice this. The kindergarten runs age 4-6 and doesn't teach reading or writing. The emphasis is on gaining physical skills, creative activities, and social skills. Primary school, grundschule, starts at age 7.
Anyone still think it's OPEC's fault?
How did you miss the paragraph which said the prices rises we have seen are normal as refineries shut down and change over to summer blends?
But I thought the memorial day week end was an excuse to RAISE gas prices? It has been in the past.
You thought wrong, most years the peak price for summer changeover is april/may. Sometimes in june. Check the chart. http://www.nacsonline.com/YourBusiness/FuelsReports/GasPrices_2013/Pages/Gas-Prices-Spring.aspx
that oldest son, Josh,
Wait till what the other 18 were up to comes out.
Yeah and I call someone to cut my tree that died from ash bore and I have to pay a 1000 bucks. This is a giant 40 yr old tree and folks I talk to say I got it cheap! I mean wouldn't they be able to sell the wood and make a ton of cash-why do I have to pay for it?????
No sawmill is going to touch a tree out of someone's yard. Too high a chance of hitting metal. Sawmill blades are very expensive. Maybe, big maybe, a firewood guy might take a chance, chainsaw blades aren't as much. What are they going to do with it once it's cut up? If it had borer then most likely it can't be transported other than very locally. There are travel restrictions everywhere on ash.
The teachers have the golden key to education, they can teach what ever version of History they want.
Our standing in the world will improve once we rid our self of the Political pestilence.
We did vote the neocons out of power, at least in the adminstrative branch, in 2008. That should have helped. But unfortunately voted in the stealth neocons to replace them.
1 vial of bio weapon can kill a million.
What kind? That's a lot of killing power.
Probably ebola, it's exponential you know.
provable like a hard science. Which is even more unworkable because it is never quite proven, never quite repeatable.
There are no hard sciences with repeatable results?
Not my statement.
There is no other way to read it unless "which is" refers to something other than the words hard science in the preceding sentence.
The whole subject is not scientific it is called a soft science, most of your ilk think it should be scientific and provable like a hard science. Which is even more unworkable because it is never quite proven, never quite repeatable.
No the whole subject is called opinion. Scalia shouldn't have used a definitive statement to express his opinion. Again showing he is dishonest in promoting his agenda. Outside the court. I"m not talking about his work as a justice, he is usually pretty straight forward in his court writings.
There are no hard sciences with repeatable results? There are in my world. Again proving your basic dishonesty to promote your agenda.
Scalia said the most profound and significant departure from our nation’s constitutional structure and the principle of federalism protecting the states from federal power came in 1913, when the 17th Amendment was ratified, providing for the direct, popular election of U.S. senators. Before, state governments appointed U.S. senators.
“What a difference that makes,” Scalia said
That is not to say that things would not have been different if there were no 17th. IOW would the make up of the senators be different if appointed by the states?
What a difference that makes? He knows this how? By one hypothetical example that can never be proved. No wonder people consider dishonest lawyer a redundancy.
One of the bill of rights which has greatly accommodated this by it's violation is the 10th, none more than the mutts hero FDR.
How can something accommodate by being violated. They are contradictory terms. You bring a whole new meaning to the term torturing the english language. BTW FDR wasn't a senator, he was president, so the 17th amendment doesn't apply to him.
Let's see if the Republican National Committee is smart enough to distribute a copy of the book to every household in America.
I was sick of the billary twins in 1992. Why, if there is a merciful god, are they still on this earth?
Prices dropped 2.3 percent from April -- led by top-priced Kensington and Chelsea -- and were up 1.5 percent from a year earlier, property website operator Rightmove said on Monday. That’s the smallest annual gain in more than four years..
God realtors are worse than politicians. Smallest gain in 4 years = plunged. There is a special place in hell for both groups.
Custom home foreclosures and builders trying to sell their models and "get out of dodge".
It's a major drive without rush hour. Google says its even further than I remember, 37 miles. How is rush hour in San Antonio these days? I used to go to clients offices there in the 80's a lot and traffic could be brutal then. Can't have improved since.
I don't see anything in the listing that says the builder still has the property. It only says the house was a former model home, not that the builder still owns it. I'm assuming you have local knowledge about this beyond what is in the listing. By texas standards it's a cute little house.
The reason America’s basic freedom has endured for more than 200 years, Scalia said Friday in a speech to the Federalist Society in Morristown, N.J., is not the amendments to the Constitution but the Constitution itself.
That’s why America’s framers debated not the Bill of Rights during the Constitutional Convention of 1787 in Philadelphia, he said, but rather the structure of the federal government.
Scalia has always been dishonest, throwing out what he knows is bs for the federalist society is just typical. The federalists of the days of the constitutional convention hated the bill of rights. They felt the constitutions structure provided enough protection of rights by the quixotic idea (thoroughly disproven since then) that the division of powers would prevent any laws from being passed that would infringe on rights. The bill of rights absolutely was debated in 1787 in Philadelphia. The compromise agreement between the federalists and anti federalists was to get the constitution passed quickly without the bill of rights debate bogging down the ratification then address the bill of rights in the first congress. Scalia has to know this. There is no way he could not know this. It's taught in constitutional law classes everywhere. http://law2.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/conlaw/billofrightsintro.html
I notice that neither scalia or indiginous provides any examples of senators being recalled by the states because they didn't represent the state legislators will. Because it never happened. So much for the almighty 17th amendment changing the course of history.
I'm starting a pool for the date when CIC actually adds something to a post. Anyone else in? No dates past 2030 allowed.
That is fucking stupid.
Yes it is, you posted scalia as saying there are senators that have never been to the state they were elected from. If you believe that then who are they? If you don't believe it then why did you post something you didn't believe in.
