  • So, if ignorance is bliss, why isn’t Trump happy?

  • And, while I am still on the ticket site, the box Pence was sitting in would cost about $30,000 a game (not per seat, but for the entire box). Doing a quick “times ten” for the ten games of the season, the host […]

  • Here’s a slightly different bent: IMO, all Pence did was draw attention to how much money he has or to the fact that he was at the game for free. Understand this, walking out on a football game is a luxury of […]

  • I’d love to see a follow up rebuttal article that asks his “flock” to self examine and really decide if this is the type of mentality that they’d be proud to follow.

    Although many would probably say yes, perhaps […]

    I struggle with the concept of disproof an, in fact, do not like it one bit. Negating every swan does develop certainty… however, i prefer approaching problems holding up the black swan and proving something, rather than having to negate every possibility.

    Don;t misunderstand, i see the validity, I just don’t find the approach applicable…[Read more]

    The thing is, the advancement of the actual science is in a loggerhead. The ones that get it, get it. the ones that don’t… won’t.

    My strategy would be to shift the “agenda” from “jamming climate change science” down throats and presenting the ideas linearly and logically….. to going round the back and putting the whole package into a tiny…[Read more]

    As I watch the idiot box and see the tallies of all the good hearted and genuinely awesome people stepping up to help out in Texas, i cannot help but continually playing an idea over and over in my head.

    And, that idea is this: why the hell aren’t the industries that contribute to the extremity of this catastrophic event stepping up???? Better…[Read more]

    And to add,
    The idiots in the red ties and white shirts and blue suit coats are not any better.

    I’ll take what this fellow looks like when side by side with a catholic cardinal in full regalia, any day. Magic upside down trashcan hat? smoking purse? scepter? frock worth 3500 dollars (while “looking out” for the poor”)?

    Anyway, what these fools all dress like is negligible when you look at what they spew.

    The data is that millennials have seen a 32% increase in strokes. The hypothesis that has been proffered is exactly what it was labelled — an hypothesis. As far as “anecdotes” — these are observations. Last time i checked these two exercises (observation and hypothesis generation) are a vital portion of the scientific method. We are simply…[Read more]

    Hey I wasn’t making an argument. i was making statements. I do not owe you an argument. i don’t know you don’t need your approval or agreement. I didn’t address you nor do I plan on it. You are wrong. All these awesome, patient people are schooling you. Giving their time and expertise to directing you to current research and scientific…[Read more]

    Here’s the thing. 90% of adults (if they are not inhibited to tell the truth) will admit that they lost their virginity at around age 17. It’s scary when you “grow up” and want to “protect” the “children” of today from “making the same mistakes” i did…. and all that simple minded horseshit.

    Kids do NOT listen to adults who are full of shit.…[Read more]

    I’d like to forward an hypothesis. The number of stimulants that these kids have available to them is staggering. Shit that did not exist 20-30 years ago. These “energy drinks” and “5 hour energy shots” are powerful stimulants. I am quite sensitive to caffeine and avoid it (I literally thought I was an insomniac and was medicated for the…[Read more]

    Here’s another case of someone who “speaks for the masses”. I AM a Biologist. I have the degrees, the experience, the life’s lessons….. you have looked on the internet to find shit that supports your opinion. There is nothing, NOTHING, about your argument that is cogent or in line with what biologists recognize and understand about gender and…[Read more]

    people, people, people,
    when ever anyone in any instance at all for any reason asks for disproof, walk away. WALK. AWAY. I mean it is a simple, fundamental manipulation of logic. Now, the person may be manipulating it on purpose (that is, for a cause) or as a result of a fundamental misunderstanding of exactly how “knowledge” works, but either…[Read more]

    Here’s the thing. These bigots are going to “get what they ask for”. That seems to be the writing on the wall. But, there is an adage — “be careful what you wish for”. I have a “fantasy” of sorts that I’d love to see play out. I’d like all our transgendered folks to “go on the extrovert”, here, and claim the bathrooms. I am talking a…[Read more]

    Falwell, although I have only heard him speak a few times, strikes me
    as a sick, deluded, reactionary, religious freak. Just like his crazy
    father.

    While I agree with your assessment, Dan, I think that a big piece of his psyche is missing from your description. As a matter of fact, it is the missing piece to all this nonsense. Perhaps…[Read more]

    I’ve often trotted out my ole standby… Wanna see the future? Look at today’s high schools. It is a great honor and it gives me great hope to be involved with today’s students and to witness their reality.

    Their reality is the antithesis of what the 24 hour news cycle spews out about the world.

    I recently saw something truly noteworthy regarding this topic.A very simple statement:

    When are we going to stop asking politicians if they believe climate change and start asking them if they understand it?

    My set of questions sure seems to have exposed the closed mind and smiling hate (trademark pending). Let’s recapitulate the past few days:

    Avi would regard his son being homosexual as terrible.
    Avi’s clear bullying of his son has resulted in a child who would divorce the love of his life if she dared DARED to drift away from AVI’s beliefs…[Read more]
