    Prospero to Citizen Zed
    AGW "Deniers" have managed, so far, the prevention of a similar Chicago-based, federally insured "Carbon Credit Exchange," but Beijing needs the fundage. Such True Scepticism is officially "unpatriotic" in the Middle Kingdom.

    And money is at the heart of our own government's advocacy of similar propaganda. There's nothing Al Gore and they would like nothing much better than to promote such corporate patriotism here, appearing as yet another line item on our power and phone bills each month.

    But it will be few among us who will profit from the brokerage fees, and an extra $4 item will not be worth playing phone tag and talking to computers to complain about.

    Adding insult to injury will be the little kids collecting change at Halloween, just like UNICEF.

  • Breaking: Michael Brown Allegedly Involved in Second Degree Murder Case

    If the officer was truly only racially motivated in his shooting of an unarmed black teen, why didn’t he also shoot Johnson, the main witness who is also black? It seems to me one can’t argue that the officer is a deranged killer shooting one of the black victims but I guess kind enough to spare the other.

    Nevermind what got deleted.

    I recall seeing a flurry of, of all dogs, poodle bites about late 80’sor so.
    It appears as if there are ebbs and flows as to which dog is the “dog to hate” per decade or so.
    Also, anyone recall when a “pit bull” looked like spuds mackenzie instead of having a passing resemblance to a boxer or spitz?
    Seems as if the very identity of what is or isn’t a “pit” has changed some.
    “Pits” these days don’t resemble spuds with the terrier nose profile.

    Freepers have this nutty view that orthodox Jewish means conservative

    Its hilarious

    Have many here been to say Monsey or Kiryat Joel in New York to see how it goes

    I have

    It is nothing like Freepers like to think

    We had alouette some years back and dummies here think all orthodox must be like she was....no.

    And Mark Levin is not terribly religious...he’s first to admit.....he just bucks the norm....his dad did too

    The big wave of Jews in early 1900s were left leaning....concentrated in urban areas and continue as such

    The earlier more sephardic bunch around from 1600s thru antebellum period were little different from their goyim hosts politically

    Its the newer arrivals....bad habits politically for our side

I would not walk within easy striking distance of them even with my hand on my CC. I’m not afraid. But they are stupid enough for the most part to get themselves shot and then the SHTF.

    Undecided 2012 to Aurorales

    you are every landlords dream renter. I do HVAC in Texas and I can tell you firsthand most renters do zero maintenance on their AC units which often just replacing the filter is too much for them. If I was a landlord, I’d hate to be intrusive but I think I’d show up monthly or semi-monthly to change the filter. Often times the indoor coil is so filthy the only remedy is replacement. Landlords, too, do not like to part with their money either.

    Outside of Center City, Philadelphia housing is disposable. I grew up there and good working class white neighborhoods were absolutely destroyed by Section 8 Housing. In one neighborhood I lived in our kids could play in the streets and you could walk down the back alley at midnight and not feel threatened or scared one bit. Now, I wouldn’t walk down the black I mean back alley unless I was with an armed militia.
    I went back to that neighborhood not a decade later after I left and one thing really stood out to me. When I lived there the days were quite and not many cars were parked on the street because quite simply everyone was at work. When I went back to visit during the day time the street was loaded with the brothers hanging out everywhere.

    Vote AGAINST the "Establishment Republican" !
    They're WORSE than the 'Rat he's running against, because he's sold out conservatives, coming and going.
    We can take out COMPROMISER McConnell this very election, and replace the 'RAT with a conservative next time around.
    Compromisers ALWAYS LOSE !

    "Establishment Republicans" lose everytime they're listened to.
    They wouldn't care if they DO lose.
    If they can't be in power, they don't want US in power.
    It's just that simple.
    It's WAR!

    We will never unify under "Establishment Republicans" .
    "Establishment Republicans" have more in common with the Democrats, than they do with Conservatives.
    The weak candidates are "Establishment Republicans", weak on national security, amnesty for illegals, abortion, and government spending.
    "Establishment Republicans" scream "COMPROMISE".
    And people who study the Bible know that COMPROMISE almost always leads to destruction.
    Someone once said [We're] 'Not victims of "the Establishment." '
    I disagree.
    I ask you again:
      Who was it that dumped all those negative adds on Conservative Candidates in the primary?
      Who was it that constantly battered each leading Conservative in the primary with an average of three to one negative ads against our real candidates?
      Who's money was dumped against the conservative choices?
    It WAS Mitt Romney, leader of the "Establishment Republicans"
    and it WAS the "Establishment Republicans" who funded all those negative ads against Conservatives.

    So conservatives, the BASE of the Republican Party, WERE ' victims of "the Establishment." '

    These "Establishment Republicans" are being weeded out, one by one, and slowly but surely, the TEA Party is taking over.

    "Establishment Republicans" Want to Redefine the Term "Conservative"
      "DO CONSERVATIVES WANT TO WIN IN 2012 OR NOT?"
    DO CONSERVATIVES "ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS" WANT TO WIN IN 2014 OR NOT?

    Jack Kerwick wrote an article on May 24, 2011 titled The Tea Partier versus The Republican and he expressed some important issues that I agree with.

      Thus far, the field of GOP presidential contenders, actual and potential, isn’t looking too terribly promising.

      This, though, isn’t meant to suggest that any of the candidates, all things being equal, lack what it takes to insure
      that Barack Obama never sees the light of a second term; nor is it the case that I find none of the candidates appealing.
      Rather, I simply mean that at this juncture, the party faithful is far from unanimously energized over any of them.

      It is true that it was the rapidity and aggressiveness with which President Obama proceeded to impose his perilous designs upon the country
      that proved to be the final spark to ignite the Tea Party movement.
      But the chain of events that lead to its emergence began long before Obama was elected.
      That is, it was actually the disenchantment with the Republican Party under our “compassionate conservative” president, George W. Bush,
      which overcame legions of conservatives that was the initial inspiration that gave rise to the Tea Party.

      It is this frustration with the GOP’s betrayal of the values that it affirms that accounts for why the overwhelming majority
      of those who associate with or otherwise sympathize with the Tea Party movement
      refuse to explicitly or formally identify with the Republican Party.
      And it is this frustration that informs the Tea Partiers’ threat to create a third party
      in the event that the GOP continues business as usual.

      If and when those conservatives and libertarians who compose the bulk of the Tea Party, decided that the Republican establishment
      has yet to learn the lessons of ’06 and ’08, choose to follow through with their promise,
      they will invariably be met by Republicans with two distinct but interrelated objections.

      First,
        they will be told that they are utopian, “purists” foolishly holding out for an “ideal” candidate.

      Second, because virtually all members of the Tea Party would have otherwise voted Republican if not for this new third party,
        they will be castigated for essentially giving elections away to Democrats.

      Both of these criticisms are, at best, misplaced; at worst, they are just disingenuous.
      At any rate, they are easily answerable.

      Let’s begin with the argument against “purism.” To this line, two replies are in the coming.


        No one, as far as I have ever been able to determine, refuses to vote for anyone who isn’t an ideal candidate.
        Ideal candidates, by definition, don’t exist.
        This, after all, is what makes them ideal.
        This counter-objection alone suffices to expose the argument of the Anti-Purist as so much counterfeit.
        But there is another consideration that militates decisively against it.

        A Tea Partier who refrains from voting for a Republican candidate who shares few if any of his beliefs
        can no more be accused of holding out for an ideal candidate
        than can someone who refuses to marry a person with whom he has little to anything in common
        be accused of holding out for an ideal spouse.
        In other words, the object of the argument against purism is the most glaring of straw men:
          “I will not vote for a thoroughly flawed candidate” is one thing;
          “I will only vote for a perfect candidate” is something else entirely.

        As for the second objection against the Tea Partier’s rejection of those Republican candidates who eschew his values and convictions,
        it can be dispensed with just as effortlessly as the first.

        Every election season—and at no time more so than this past season—Republicans pledge to “reform Washington,” “trim down” the federal government, and so forth.
        Once, however, they get elected and they conduct themselves with none of the confidence and enthusiasm with which they expressed themselves on the campaign trail,
        those who placed them in office are treated to one lecture after the other on the need for “compromise” and “patience.”

        Well, when the Tea Partier’s impatience with establishment Republican candidates intimates a Democratic victory,
        he can use this same line of reasoning against his Republican critics.
        My dislike for the Democratic Party is second to none, he can insist.
        But in order to advance in the long run my conservative or Constitutionalist values, it may be necessary to compromise some in the short term.

        For example,

          as Glenn Beck once correctly noted in an interview with Katie Couric,
          had John McCain been elected in 2008, it is not at all improbable that, in the final analysis,
          the country would have been worse off than it is under a President Obama.
          McCain would have furthered the country’s leftward drift,
          but because this movement would have been slower,
          and because McCain is a Republican, it is not likely that the apparent awakening that occurred under Obama would have occurred under McCain.

      It may be worth it, the Tea Partier can tell Republicans, for the GOP to lose some elections if it means that conservatives—and the country—will ultimately win.

      If he didn’t know it before, the Tea Partier now knows that accepting short-term loss in exchange for long-term gain is the essence of compromise, the essence of politics.

      Ironically, he can thank the Republican for impressing this so indelibly upon him.



    I'm fresh out of "patience", and I'm not in the mood for "compromise".
    "COMPROMISE" to me is a dirty word.
    Let the RINO's compromise their values, with the conservatives, for a change.
    Take a good long look at where "Establishment Republicans" ALWAYS take us.



    The "Establishment Republicans" can GO TO HELL !

    It's like what they say about the mistress who wants the man to leave his wife. She shouldn't be surprised when he eventually leaves her for another woman. He's already done it once before.

    What will you do when McConnell eventually leaves you? What are your principles if you choose a man with no principles as your representative?

    pepsionice to SpaceBar

    To illustrate this...I’ll point out a story from the 2010 period that came out of the northeast. A small city administrator one day came upon the back of the police department building where a couple of old CPUs and monitors were placed for trash pick-up.

    They walked in and found at least a dozen new computers/monitors. This isn’t a big town....their budget isn’t the type that you’d get lost on. So, they asked questions because no allotment for new computers for the police department had been allocated for this financial year.

    The front desk person for the cop station responded....they applied (without mayor or council notice) for a Homeland Security grant for new computers, and got the check. They then cashed the check without the city budget office knowing about it, and bought the hardware without the permission of the city council.

    Needless to say....this became a topic which the police chief was asked to come and explain at the town council meeting. What the council hinted (don’t know if they followed through on this)....was that they’d make up a rule that any and all applications for any grants...had to have city council participation.

    What the council didn’t ask....what else did the cops apply for in terms of grants. I noticed this question was left out and I suspect that if they applied for one grant that easily....they probably put in five or six grants.

    I’d take a humble guess that a thousand police departments throughout the US....have acquired grant money and never told their mayor or city council about the funding acquired.

    Yup. That's pretty much SOP for Russian infantry, except they shoot them after they're repatriated, "Stalin Style." Sounds like a good time for "all good men" to dust off or purchase their first copy of Solzhenitsyn's Gulag.

    I have to disagree with the Mortensen pick. This was the latest in a Iong line of kings, but there was nothing regal about Mortensen’s Aragorn.

    * * *

    Totally agree! I have loved Mortensen in other roles (such as “A History of Violence”) but he was just miscast as Aragorn. He wasn’t rough and, frankly, frightening enough in his Strider persona, and I never bought him as the king in waiting. Daniel Day-Lewis would have been very good, I think, though he tends to ham things up. (Though at least we were spared Nicholas Cage!!! Yikes! LOL!)

    I completely disagree with the person you were responding to - but at the same time - your so-called “principles” are precisely why policies such as Obamacare are in place - not satisfied yet?

    Do tell how McConnell’s ads against Bevin were “vicious and vitriolic” - they were pretty much written by Bevin himself due to his own behavior.

    I would suggest any significant movement of the Jewish vote to the GOP would only strengthen the GOP far left.

    Many Jewish people have very influential in the socialism movement.

    The fact remains, a vote for Grimes or for the Losertarian or whatever third-party loser or a non-vote is a vote to retain Harry Reid as Majority Leader and to advance Barack Obama’s agenda for the US.

    The point was that there are several Heisman trophy winners who never made it in the NFL

    Not several, 3. And two of those it was their decision. The guy in the 1950s decided to serve his country, so teams didn't draft him. Likewise Charlie Ward decided to go to basketball, or he probably would have been drafted. With Jason White, I'm not sure how much it was that he couldn't cut it or his knees were bad.

    But you have to remember, those awards including the Heisman aren't given to people based on how they will do in the pros. Some players don't have the size, or speed, etc. to compete at that level, but can still play great in college.

  • Did the historical Jesus exist? A growing number of scholars donít think so

    Bigtigermike to Mean Daddy

    Jesus was indeed an historical figure and history proves it. History declares that without a doubt, Christianity or “the way” as it was earlier called after the death of this “supposed” Jesus started in Jerusalem. Now clearly there were two immediate antagonists to early Christianity that could have put out the flames to this faith if no such person named Jesus had ever existed and that were many of the Jewish leaders of the Sanhedrin and the Romans. It was in Jerusalem that the “imaginary” Jesus taught, performed miracles and most importantly died right outside the walls on a known hill that everyone knew about, in facted Jesus died on a Friday on the Passover, the most holiest day and died around 3:00pm. If the man never existed and never carried the cross and nevered died between 2 criminals then it would have easy for the leading authorities to have nipped this in the bud with talk of him being resurrected. I understand that urban legends can grow in spite of overwhelming evidence but the average Jewish person of that day thought the coming Messiah was going to restore Israel by overthrowing the Roman Empire, so its odd that thousands upon thousands of these Jews would put their faith in a Messiah that offered spirtual restoration unless they saw, witnessed and experienced something about a man and his disciples.
