    There are too many crazy people and they all seem to be in California.

    Obviously, you've never been to New York City.

    Or south Florida.

    Yeah Liberals are ones to talk. They've been totally useless in American politics for about 3 decades now

    You're entitled to your opinion no matter how bigoted and uninformed.

    I can't remember the last time a liberal held an office of power. Maybe Jesse Ventura as governor, but nothing in the Senate comes to mind.

    The point is to convince everyone else that the unicorn believer is an idiot who deserves no respect.

    Then you've already lost every argument you put forth.

    You're entitled to your speculation, but why should I believe your speculation is accurate when your facts are not?

    Quigley says

    Respected scientists believed the gorilla to be a mythical creature until someone dropped a dead one on their dissecting table.

    Therefore, unicorns and the Loch Ness monster are probably real. The burden of proof is on the assertor.

    We've already proved that every Big Foot sighting has been a hoax. If some species of ape is discovered and the person who finds it decides to call it Big Foot in order to garner more publicity, that doesn't make the myth of Big Foot any less bullshit.

    Furthermore, it is a false dichotomy to say that a person is either close-minded to news possibilities or is naive enough to believe everything. The religious refused to be accept evidence. The skeptic demands evidence. I am a skeptic, and that's a good thing.

    Until that day when an alien ship lands.

    When that ship lands, I doubt the occupants will plead guilty to anally probing thousands of red necks.

    Peter P says

    One must strive to live a truth-agnostic life.

    Now that should be the motto of Fox News: truth-agnostic.

    One last thought... The peer-review process in science is brutal, but it is brutal for a reason. It is only by thoroughly attacking ideas that one can distinguish good ideas from bad ones. It is only by thoroughly attacking theories that one can have a high degree of confidence in them. Skepticism is good.

    That's right. Clinton kept the peace and America prospered throughout his presidency. He did a great job.

    He went to Kosovo. He did good on the finance because of Gingrich and coincidence of the Tech boom.

    Compared to the numerous wars Bush started that kill over a million people, the Clinton years were the most peaceful in American history since before WWII.

    And the tech boom was largely due to Al Gore opening up networks.

    Game, set, match the Clinton administration.

    Go ahead and continue to lie about historical facts. Reality is well documented.

    There are 47 million people on food stamps but you characterize this as starving children?

    NoKidHungry.org

    48.8 million Americans—including 16.2 million children— live in households that lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis. As a result, they struggle with hunger at some time during the year.

    Child Welfare League of America

    Thirty-three million people-including 13 million children-live in households that experience hunger or the risk of hunger. This represents one in ten households in the United States (10 percent).

    7.3 percent of U.S. households are at risk of hunger: they have lower quality diets or must resort to seeking emergency food because they cannot always afford the food they need. 24.7 million people, including 9.9 million children, live in these homes.

    Lousina State University Agricultural Center

    Some 13 million children in the United States live in homes with limited access to a sufficient food supply. Children are being aided substantially by food stamps. In more than 800 counties nationwide, one in three children is getting this critical nutrition assistance. In the mid-American cities of St. Louis, Memphis, and New Orleans, half the children get food stamp (SNAP) benefits. Even in Peoria, Illinois – the proverbial Everytown, USA – the figure is 40 percent. In the Bronx, 46 percent of children are on food stamps. In East Carroll Parish, Louisiana, SNAP helps three in four children. A new generation of research demonstrates a direct link between inadequate food supply and a poorer overall health status among U.S. children, according to LSU AgCenter food and nutrition expert Dr. Annrose Guarino.

    Guarino says insufficient food supply is associated with an increased incidence of behavior problems in adolescents, including higher levels of aggression, hyperactivity and anxiety. Research reveals that food-insecure children have greater difficulty getting along with other children, increased chances of being suspended from school and a greater need for mental health counseling.

    Previous research has demonstrated that continuous lack of food can result in malnutrition over time, and even the mildest form of malnutrition can limit a child’s ability to understand basic skills and reduce overall learning potential. For example, children from food-insecure households did not perform as well on academic achievement tests as did children from food-secure households.

    indigenous, you are both ignorant and heartless.

    To everyone else, this is why we should never put a Republican in any office every again.

    Name it.

    1. Red Herring

    You tried to distract from the Paul Ryan speech by ridiculing The Daily Show for being a comedy show. It is irrelevant who or what show presented the video clip, the video is an unedited and fully contextual segment of Paul Ryan's actual speech and thus does reflect his actions.

    2. Appeal to Ridicule

    You state that the Daily Show is a comedy show, therefore nothing it says can be considered truthful or taken seriously. This simply isn't so. The Paul Ryan speech and Jon Stewart's revelations about it are important and accurate.

    3. Guilt By Association

    You tried to convince people that because the clip was played on a comedy show, the clip is invalid. You also tried to convince people that merely being associated with comedians invalidates political analysis.

    4. Poisoning the Well

    You tried to convince people that nothing coming from The Daily Show can be taken seriously even though the content in question most certainly can.

    5. Division

    You implied that because The Daily Show is comedy overall, every segment must be comical and thus not serious. This simply isn't true as illustrated by this interview with 9/11 responders reacting to the Republican filibuster of a bill to save the lives of 9/11 responders.

    Have you learned your lesson? Never call my hand. I never bluff.
