  1. Good to see personal attacks aren't tolerated here
  2. I think George Carlin hit the nail on the head- *
  3. It might be the only thing I respect him for- he uses religion as a tool to control the weak minded.
  4. interesting article in today's nyt- I know it's all fake. But they compared health plans from multiple countries. You know who won? Switzerland. You know what their health insurance looks most like? The ACA - you either provide insurance for your people (which costs $) or you don't. It's rather simple.
  5. For the record- the US doctor in question also had a financial interest in the treatment. Kinda like the MD who claimed vaccines cause autism. He was getting paid by plaintiff attorneys to find "victims"
  6. You're a fine example of a Christian. Jesus would be proud.
  7. Don't get me wrong- right now Islamic terrorism is more prevalent. However Christianity is not immune- how about those abortion doctors killed for providing a legal medical service. You may not agree with abortion but that in no way gives anyone the right to take another life. Especially if you justify it by doing gods work.
  8. And religion justifies killing those people in the name of god. All communists may be atheists but all atheists aren't communists.
  9. You're entitled to your opinion. Islam is an Abrahamic faith and related to both Judaism and Christianity. Religion is just one more tool to control tha masses and is directly responsible for the death of millions - including Christianity.
  10. You're entitled to your opinion - even when it's wrong. Islam is an Abrahamic faith and related to both Judaism and Christianity. Religion is just one more tool to control tha masses and is directly responsible for the death of millions - including Christianity.
  11. Free speech- end of story Islam is just Christianity younger sibling. Islam started 700 years after Christianity. Remember 15th century Christianity? The inquisition? They are all the same when you pull off the linoleum.
  12. What's interesting about what Trump believes is this- did he pull out based on an economic arguement or does he dispute climate change? There is no clarity on that at all.
  13. Ok- attack the accuracy of "97%". Whatever makes you feel better. Show me the reputable scientists or scientific organizations that dispute CO2 influence on global warming. Why the need to dispute this? Why not look at leading the revolution in wind, solar, nuclear etc. seems like we just gave China the opportunity to cement its current leadership in these fields.
  14. 1- that story is from 2014 2- if you actually read the story it in no way contradicts the fact that CO2 (man made) contributes to warming the planet. Just another attempt to discredit facts one doesn't like.
  15. I guess all those scientists aren't atheists then.
  16. +1. Wish more people understood this
  17. Never said it did- and whether it does or doesn't influence terrorism doesn't change the science as to the facts leading to the conclusion about CO2 contributing to global warming.
  18. The scientific world begs to differ
  19. +1 The level of anti science and pro quick buck in todays GOP is scary. I still can't figure out why the USA doesn't want to lead the revolution in renewable energy. We are sitting on our hands and letting China lead. Think of all the manufacturing jobs building solar and wind!
  20. May or may not be criminal - not a lawyer. But sounds awful "swampy".
  21. Describes him to a tee
  22. Reading this thread has me shaking my head. I just don't see the love the right wing has for Putin. What's become clear is that the "right wing" has nothing to do with Reagan. In fact if Reagan were running in 2017 he'd be denounced. Our "right wing" is a fascist version of Populist politics.
  23. Great post- i wish I heard this explanation on the news/radio/newspaper more often. It goes along way in explaining the mess the insurance business is. Instead we hear the same BS talking points- from all sides
  24. A man and his nagging wife were on holiday in Jerusalem, when the wife suddenly died. The funeral company told the man that it would cost $45,000 to ship her home or $500 to bury her in Jerusalem. The husband said, “Ship her home.” Shocked, the undertaker asked, “But sir, why don’t you bury her in the Holy Land and save the money?” To which the husband replied, “A long time ago, a man was buried here and 3 days later he rose from the dead….I cant take THAT chance!” Happy Easter..
  25. I couldn't agree with this statement more-- the science bashing as well as the Christian fundamentalists are what drove me from the republican party. It stared after reading American Theocracy by Kevin Phillips. Great book and well ahead of it's time.
