US to deploy more ground-based missile interceptors as North Korea steps up threats
Fri Mar 15, 2013
First the bad news: Many US defensive missiles have not been tested under real-world scenarios and those that were tested under very easy conditions often failed anyway. Then the good news: Korea doesn't have the capability to reach the US with nuclear weapons. Conclusion: It's a waste of money for …
GOP tries to block Obama from meeting pledge on US terror trials
Fri Mar 8, 2013
Jason, why would a terrorist need the provocation of trial to bomb a building in NY? There was no trial on 9/11. The reason it hasn't happened since is because the terrorists haven't been confident that they can get away with it.
Strong support continues for minimum wage
Thu Mar 7, 2013
sAyITLiKeItIs: Your explanation assumes that whatever a business charges for a product, customers will still buy it. So if a business wants to make more profit they can just double the price, they don't need a minimum wage increase to do it. Of course they don't because supply and demand still opera …
Fat-shaming may curb obesity, bioethicist says
Thu Jan 24, 2013
When people talk about excuses or rationalizations for being overweight, it simply reveals their bias. Being overweight is not a crime or character flaw, so no excuses or rationalizations are needed. In the US we have a long history of preferring blame over problem solving. Thus we have people who c …
A more confident Obama emerges for second term
Sun Jan 20, 2013
Hey, Justin. You shouldn't rely on Hollywood movies for history lessons. Torture (or "Enhanced Interrogation" as the timid like to call it) played no role in the tracking down of Bin Laden.
Flu jab isn't perfect by a long shot, health officials admit
Fri Jan 11, 2013
"If officials openly stated that you could get the flu from a flu shot, no one would get one" If officials knew you could get the flu from a flu shot, they'd simply stop telling people to get one.
GOP congressman: Akin's rape comments were 'partly right'
Fri Jan 11, 2013
HopeisGone, just how many semesters in medical school do you believe the average OB/GYN spends studying rape? This discussion on rape by Republicans is not about improving the understanding of medical science it's about looking for excuses to ban abortions regardless of the circumstances. They don't …
Republicans start process of moving forward after election defeat
Thu Dec 6, 2012
1funnygirl, I agree there are some very smart conservatives out there (although I'm not sure you would qualify with all your "boinking" talk). The problem is that their minds turn to mush when confronting a conflict between the facts and their cultural beliefs. This idea that those who voted for the …
Anti-Obamacare rhetoric guts Papa John's and Applebee's reputations
Wed Dec 5, 2012
The way these companies talk, you'd think they were barely breaking even and that Obamacare would push them over the cliff. When they say they will cut down their employment or pass the extra cost on to their customers they undermine their ad campaigns that try to promote them as nice friendly folks …
Naked freshman shot to death by campus police officer at University of South Alabama
Sat Oct 6, 2012
It's funny how people here "know" that the guy was violent simply because the cop said he was. I guess they watch too many of those TV cop shows too.
