Organic once described the farming process of produce,
That's true, but it's not the organic farmer's fault that so many holes have been poked into the certification. However there is a small counter-movement of farmers who pledge to follow old-fashioned farming (incl. raw dairy) without going through the certification process. You can get old-fashioned produce and dairy at reasonable prices there.
This article is utter rubbish. They are not fighting planned parenthood, they are fighting the subsidy. No matter whether you like or dislike libertarian principles, they surely have everything to do with civil liberties and nothing to do with subsidies.
For the women who say there needs to be tolerance for women who lie about rape, let's make this personal.
In your example you could easily replace the woman's husband with her son, similarly wrecking outcome.
I've had three distinct careers: biomedical scientist; FDA drug regulator; and scholar at the Hoover Institution, a think-tank at Stanford University
There are millions of biomedical scientists, highly unimpressive.
Organic food is a colossal waste of money,
It depends, buying organic can be very useful for fruits and vegetables that have no removable or a very thin skin and get heavily sprayed with pesticides (even the FDA itself cites this), such as strawberries or peaches. Bananas, avocados and oranges, not so much, however you still should wash your hands if you peel a fruit laced with pesticides.
Henry I. Miller works or has worked for the Hoover Institute, Heartland Institute, and Competitive Enterprise Institute. He's also a former George C. Marshall Roundtable Member (a position shared by the late "Scientist" Tom Clancy and also by "Scientists" Norman Poedhoretz and Charles Krauthammer) working on "Environmental Education" for this largely Exxon funded organization.
He's claimed that radiation in small doses from Fukushima might be beneficial, was on the short list to join an International Tobacco Isn't Harmful think tank, attacks Environmental Laws, and has participated in just about every major science issue on the Corporate side. He is opposed to the Precautionary Principle in every case.
Everything is relative, the theory of hormesis for example has been around for a while, and mountain folks usually does equally or better when compared to their peers at sea level, despite increased background radiation. Still it is a ridiculous stretch from there to suggest that radiation from Fukushima may be beneficial ;)
All in all this was a pretty poor hit-job lacking any scientific evidence whatsoever. If you take the standard American diet, you may be able to come up with pesticide percentages close to each other, because the diet is mainly crap (little fresh food and pesticides may be a lesser concern). Also mono-cultures and GMOs have never been proven to be more efficient wrt natural resources. The great thing about organic food is that people can decide to buy it and are not forced to, as opposed to the GMO cross-pollination and the leeching of pesticides into the environment.
...and it's all downhill from there! And people think conservatives are nuts?
It's all relative. Compared to the "progressive" leftoids most are certainly reasonable and folksy people.
There are no statistical methods to the "study". To publish rubbish like this under scientific studies is a disgrace for science.
It's crazy here in Davis right now.
DUMPS selling for north of $500K because some friend heard they wermay raise re selling it, never even reaching the listings.
A Chinese friend told me, that 50% of the sales are to Chinese parents who are willing to pay cash. They buy the house, their kids lives in it and goes to school, renting out the other rooms. When the kid graduates, they sell or keep running it as remote slumlords I guess.
Maddening as we are looking for a house. We see a nice house, a few days later it's gone.
Housing looks pretty toppy here, the short ETFs are showing a 6-month uptrend. Fed may finally raise rates and price acceleration is slowing significantly. If the market does not well the next months, prices may stagnate or reverse. Especially in a market where stocks in general retreat but the market is sustained by a few big outliers.
That's what it's like getting "stick-saved" by QE and the bailouts, you never outpace artificially created inflation. Gotta wait for the next crash and then don't demand government intervention. Learn from the mistakes.
Ask your self why isn't She commenting on Donald? I'll tell you why, She knows what I and Donald already knows. He'd eat her lunch.
Everyone on both sides are already trying to avoiding having to debate him, but acknowledge that if they flat out refuse to do so. Donald Trump stock will shoot through the roof, and if they do, Donald's stock will shoot through the roof. Their only option is to keep publicly shaming him and upping the pressure to get him to dropout of the race, and of course the old standard fabricating polls with pretty sexy charts. There will be Charts...
I agree with this, that's the reason for parading all those charts and the character assault that is going on. You don't have to like him, but if he is so stupid then include him in the debates, can't hurt if he can't win them. But he would likely obliterate most candidates and that's why he is so feared.
There's nothing like serial bankruptcy filer being held up as the man to fix the economy.
At least he knows bankruptcy is an important tool for a functioning capitalistic economy, as opposed to your crony bailouts.
an overt racist
LOL, was wondering the same.
Thank you for allowing me to clarify.
Your welcome, but you seem to exhibit bouts of liberal diarrhea at times. You just know how Trump feels, and you struggle for words to vent. It is not your fault that you haven't the slightest idea what "Hispanic" means, or "Latino" for that matter. The media hasn't a clue and neither do politicians.
They like to throw these words around because it instantly makes them feel better if they can talk about "Latino" or any other racegendered issues. Nobody cares anymore wtf they are talking about as long as they can make a pseudo-intellectual leftoid anti -ist talking point! Pinheads.
Salon and its leftoid hivemind are squirming in the wake of someone telling them to shove their bullshit doctrine of political correctness. Ironically writing about Trump is one of the very few ways for those rags to get anybody to read their drivel in the hope of staying in business - they should be thanking him.
If DT gets a nomination and an in into the TV debates - he will obliterate Hillary to the point where these polls are utterly meaningless. The only question is if he gets the nomination and actually gets to debate her. And while I tend to agree that his chances weren't good from the start, they are getting better by the day.
The leftoids and the mainstream GOP are foaming, time for the one-party-system to be shaken up. Dude has game.
Gender roles change
No they don't, they are imposed forcefully. Here and in the middle-east. Neither does end well for the women and the men. You cannot erase a genetic blueprint in 10000, let alone 100 years.
When a person does raise a little girl, he / she has to decide how to approach traditional male / female roles
You've got DNA for that. Don't fight it, it's largely not your decision. Let the chips fall and don't indoctrinate her.
Greece's failure? The reason Greece ran such large deficits is that it had such a successful economy that it bought more externally than it could produce.
It spent more than it took in. Always recipe for disaster. They also cooked their books.numbers. And its government is (was) huge. Regardless of what the exact mechanism is, it did not happen on a conservative watch, but on a socialist one. And those loans made to them weren't any good, they shouldn't have taken them in the first place. But they did, time to hold their own politicians accountable.
While we're not Greece per se, the similarity is that conservatives looted that place and their domestic politics now is powerless to put the pieces back together in a working configuration.
LOL. Greece entered the EU in 1981 amidst a takeover of the socialist party which - with exception of the few years of Samaras - were only followed by even leftier ones up to Syriza), which then started growing government and debt. Of course there are always rich people making out in a fat way, the ones connected to the party-apparatschiks. It wasn't any different in the DDR, plenty of rich people partying in the polit-bureau while shooting at the poor who tried to leave because their economy sucked. Greece's failure is pretty much 99% a socialist "accomplishment". To somehow connect that to conservatives is really a great mind-bend, kudos!
IMHO, a guy that got deferment after deferment and copped a foot bone spur medical excuse is a piece of shit when he puts down a guy who served.
Except for that he didn't say that. "It’s true that Trump stated one time that McCain is not a war hero. But Trump stated four times that McCain is a war hero–and that was not accurately characterized in the article."
Trump went after John Mcain saying he's not a hero, because MCain was captured
Actually he said the exact opposite. "Trump actually said the opposite of what the Post lead sentence and video caption claim. The Post might have been able to get away stating that Trump “implied” McCain was not a war hero because McCain was captured, but even that would have been a subjective interpretation since Trump had actually stated the opposite."
It's fine to criticize if you believe nobody should ever question or make fun of somebody who has served while they haven't, but it's just a waste of time if you start out with a flat out lie that the media has doctored as the basis of your argumentation. Especially when you have all the tools at your disposal today to fact-check as opposed to back then when you simply had to believe newspapers or the TV.
Sounds suddenly very different, doesn't it?
Are you saying that major media edit comments?? Nah, they would never do that, would they?
It reminds me of the editing of the Zimmerman tapes. It's amazing that although the reporter's version has been verified (there's a video available), the media doesn't care and keeps reporting the incorrect edited soundbite. Social media garbage like HuffPo, Poltico and AddictingInfo are on the forefront, not surprised here. This may be one of the rare cases where they could unite with the right mainstream to try and deliver a final blow to DTs campaign.
And here is somebody who claims to have proof that Trump never attacked McCain in the way it is portrayed by the Media:
"2. When a panelist characterized McCain as a “war hero,” the Post is accurate in reporting that Trump initially said McCain is “not a war hero.” But then, Trump immediately modified his statement saying– four times– that McCain is a war hero:
“He is a war hero.”
“He’s a war hero because he was captured.”
“He’s a war hero, because he was captured.”
“I believe, perhaps, he’s a war hero. But right now, he’s said some very bad things about a lot of people.”
3. Did Trump say McCain is not a war hero because he was captured? No, not in the exchanges represented in the Post.
4. Is the Post’s characterization an accident? It would appear not, because it is repeated in the Post’s caption of the video clip, which also states: “Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), a decorated Vietnam war veteran, was not a war hero because he was captured by the North Vietnamese [emphasis added].”
Further, in the Post’s second sentence, Trump is quoted as stating of McCain, “He’s not a war hero…He’s a war hero because he was captured,” but the article selectively left out the phrase Trump had uttered in between: “He is a war hero.”
Trump actually said the opposite of what the Post lead sentence and video caption claim. The Post might have been able to get away stating that Trump “implied” McCain was not a war hero because McCain was captured, but even that would have been a subjective interpretation since Trump had actually stated the opposite.
It’s true that Trump stated one time that McCain is not a war hero. But Trump stated four times that McCain is a war hero–and that was not accurately characterized in the article."
Sounds suddenly very different, doesn't it?
"People that fought hard and weren't captured and went through a lot, they get no credit," he said. "Nobody even talks about them. They're like forgotten, and I think that's a shame, if you want to know the truth."
He's right. Most injured veterans are treated like shit while McCain is one of the biggest neocons and saber rattlers wherever and whenever a good "crisis" cannot be wasted. Anyway I think Trump shouldn't have attacked McCain like this. There is no proof that he scammed to avoid the draft though. Btw. let's not forget that it was the left so far that continuously attacked McCain on his record (and allegedly uncovered new info):
Ah yes, the bailouts plus QE. Lloyd thanks the administration and the Fed!
That's the main reason never ever to vote left until the liberals disassociate themselves with this behavior and become true liberals again, and until the progressive left is completely shut out of the Democratic party. If one thinks a couple of religious rightists are the bigger problem, one deserves what's coming from the left. Orwell must be laughing in his grave.
