Dear Comrade Dos1,
I'm going to treat your comment as two separate and distinct incoherent ramblings, rather than one separate and distinct incoherent rambling. It's easier to do it that way than it is to figure out what the Berkeley Earth group, the Koch brothers, and climate change have to do with oversight in the drug business.
First, as to the Berkeley Earth group: Whether or not man has caused global warming isnt really the question.
The question that were asking now is to what extent the so-called climate change models have predictive value, when in fact, 114 out of 117 predictions made in regards to global warming have proven wrong.
Warming forecasts have consistently overstated the amount of warming thats happening. They also missed the decade and a half long pause in global warming that were currently experiencing.
Dr. Roy Spencer has estimated that as many as 95% of the global warming models have just been flat out wrong.
Perhaps this is a radical idea, but maybe, just maybe, the settled science crowd ought to consider this: Maybe global warming is the Earths natural way of providing for a more hospitable environment for a growing human population. Warmer weather, more food? That kind of thing?
Because the real threat to mans existence isnt global warming, but rather in a new Ice Age.
If man actually exerts an upward pressure in global temperatures, than thank God for man.
Dear Comrade Dos2,
Ive never suggested that there shouldnt be some sort of oversight and testing method in regard to drug development. I have suggested that there have been times in our historythe late 1970s come to mind-- when oversight has stifled the drug development business.
But in either event, thats not what the article you commented on talked about.
What it talked about was how Obamacare could adversely affect capital activities related to drug development, thereby retarding the development of new drugs and new medical devices and procedures.
Believe it or not, power and profit are still the two greatest incentives in human achievement.
Why should I sacrifice profit, which after all is open to all, so that a narrow set of people who have power can retain power and thereby profit?

Dear Comrade Xovnet,
Wow, that sounds exactly like an old Soviet style disinformation campaigndont you mean SovNet?
You seem to be saying that Ukraine should just lie back and enjoy it. I mean they brought it on themselves, right? Look at how they dress? You know they want it.
Looters don't stop looting because they think in stopping the police will respond less quickly next time; rapists don't stop raping, because someday the laws might be tougher on them.
Dictators bent on expansion, especially ones who believe that their next opponent will be tougher than the current opponent, are going to go as far as they can until someone stops them.
It's the definition of an opportunist, like Putin.
And it's the reason why the price of freedom is eternal vigilance and not: vigilance sometimes, and other times kind of vigilant.
What part of those words don't liberals understand?
All parts, actually.
Because for Obama to stand up to Vladimir Putin now would require a painful admission that the administration's foreign policy has been eternally screwed up, as in always.
When the history of this administration is written the story won't be how Obama was weak, the story will be how Obama wrote off Eastern Europe as unimportant because they were just nations of white people that he couldn't be bothered about.
Obama is undeniably-- post reconstruction-- the biggest racist we have ever had as president of the United States.
The man has set race relations back 40 years.
And, he's also weak.
He's like the battered spouse who goes to extremes of independence in order to show how independent theyve become.
The reality is that the extremes just show how fragile their psyche still is.
Our president's extreme views on race, politics and wealth expose a fragile and fragmented psyche; a psyche that only Republicans have been too stupid to exploit.
There are actually two dangers here. The first is exactly as the author outlines.
The second is even worse-- that Obama may launch a phony halfway war for short term political gain and even more severe long term consequences.
Complete sentences. And complete thoughts are. Not his strength.
