    I have been trying to post a reply to the above-linked thread, Huma Abedin Files for Divorce all night. Instead, I get a constant "internal error" message. The moderators have given me the following advice: "If no one else is having this problem, I suspect it may be an issue specific to the device you’re using. Try clearing your browser cache (or try another browser all together). If that doesn’t do it, try rebooting the device. There may be an available software update that may resolve your issue.

    On June 4, the satirical news site the Science Post published a block of “lorem ipsum” text under a frightening headline: “Study: 70% of Facebook users only read the headline of science stories before commenting.” Nearly 46,000 people shared the post, some of them quite earnestly — an inadvertent example, perhaps, of life imitating comedy. Now, as if it needed further proof, the satirical headline’s been validated once again: According to a new study by computer scientists at Columbia University and the French National Institute, 59 percent of links shared on social media have never actually been clicked: In other...

    Today, I’m happy to announce the release of our user blocking feature. As one of the most requested features from commenters over the years, user blocking provides you with the ability to manage who you interact with on Disqus. Blocking someone removes their activity from your experience across the network. This means that you’ll no longer get notifications from them via email or in your Disqus Inbox, nor will you see discussions or comments by them in your Home feed or on discussion threads.

    Ebay did not like a friend's feedback commentary (it WAS a violation of the rules) and has indefinitely suspended a friend's account. Ebay did not like the conservative commentary in the feedback. No warning notice of violation was given, the friend did NOT know all feedback had to be relevant to the transaction. Representative said suspension could not be appealed and was more or less permanent. Please send me a private message to discuss this. I'll give that person advice on what to do after folks comment.
  • Obama: Netanyahu's Comments Have 'Consequences'

    President Barack Obama is continuing his criticism of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s comments on a Palestinian state and Arab-Israelis before the last elections. In an interview with journalist Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic, Obama said that the security relationship between the United States and Israel will remain strong, but reiterated that there will be “consequences” from Netanyahu’s remarks. “In every public pronouncement I’ve made, I said that the bedrock security relationships between our two countries—these are sacrosanct. Military cooperation, intelligence cooperation—none of that has been affected. I have maintained, and I think I can show that no U.S. president has...

    President Obama‘s comments about Christians getting on their “high horse” were so offensive to columnist Star Parker that, on Sean Hannity‘s show tonight, she called them “verbal rape.” She explained, “We were not expecting it, nobody wanted it, it was horrible to sit through, and after it was over we all felt like crap.” Geraldo Rivera found that to be too “harsh,” but Parker insisted that was what it was. She said the point of the prayer breakfast is to “unify,” and instead Obama was too “arrogant” to stick to that message. Parker also made the pretty strong claim that...

    The Republican National Committee released a new video Friday to promote #Grubering. The hashtag summarizes the deceptive strategy used by Obama administration to get Obamacare passed. The law’s architect Jonathan Gruber called the strategy “a very clever, basic exploitation of the lack of the American economic understanding of the American voter.” A montage of various Democratic leaders praising Gruber is paired with as well a litany of transparency claims. “Obama and Democrats promised to be transparent,” the ad says. “They lied to pass it, help us repeal it.”

    Pharmaceutical companies say the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) new social media rules would have a "chilling" effect on the industry and leave consumers in the dark.The FDA in June released draft guidelines for how drug firms should use social networks like Facebook and Twitter. But pharmaceutical companies are concerned the FDA would hold them responsible for misinformation about their products posted online by third parties that the companies have little to no control over. They say the rules would discourage them from interacting on social networks, leaving consumers without useful information about their products."Given the extraordinary growth of the...

    Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told Congress on Tuesday that he would recommend deploying United States combat forces against Islamic extremists in specific operations if the current strategy of airstrikes was not successful, raising the possibility of the kind of escalation that President Obama has flatly ruled out. General Dempsey said that the ground forces would likely be Special Operations commands who could call in airstrikes from the ground. In testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, he said that while he was confident in the ability of the coalition of American, European...

    I’m listening to President Barack Hussein Obama read more empty rhetoric and here is my assessment during his NATO press conference as he shoveled it on. 1. He stated that NATO’s “combat” mission in Afghanistan will end in three months — I hope they sent the memo to the Taliban and got their consent. Obama just doesn’t seem to understand the enemy has a vote, and they are not disrupted, defeated, and certainly not destroyed – we’re just quitting again. 2. He stated we’ll defend every NATO ally — he should have expressed how, because Obama’s decision to cancel the...

    When you announce your first pregnancy, friends, coworkers, and family members all but pop a bottle of champagne and sit you down and start rubbing your feet. The joy! The excitement! So, naturally, when you tell people you're pregnant again, you're going to get that same jubilant reaction, right? Wrong. Maybe it's because you've been there, done that, but second (and third, and fourth) pregnancies don't seem to get quite the glee-filled responses first pregnancies get. Take it from moms who've experienced this first-hand. Here are 25 obnoxious comments women have actually heard after telling people they're pregnant again. Congratulations?...

    TwinCities.com has switched its commenting system from Facebook to Disqus. You've probably seen this system - pronounced "discuss" - on dozens or hundreds of other sites. You might even already be one of Disqus's 1 billion users. There are many benefits in making the switch, including: •It does not require Facebook. You can log in with your Facebook account if you like, but you can also log in with Twitter, Google, or just an email address and password. •You can vote comments up or down; report offensive comments; and choose how to view comments -- only the best ones or...
  • Tapper: Carney’s Benghazi Comments ‘Dissembling, Obfuscating, and Often Insulting’

    CNN anchor Jake Tapper appeared on Hugh Hewitt‘s radio show today to take on Jay Carney‘s spin of the latest Benghazi news. Tapper didn’t join Hewitt in calling Carney a liar, but remarked that he found Carney’s comments “dissembling, obfuscating, and often insulting.” Tapper said the White House’s version of events “does not sit with what I think happened.” He said the White House “leaned heavily into” a narrative that was helpful to them in an election year, but didn’t go as far as Hewitt, who suggested there is a “cover-up underway.” Hewitt said looking at all of Carney’s spinning,...

    The bickering continues between the White House and Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, as a Channel 2 report surfaces Tuesday states that Washington expects Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to publicly condemn Yaalon's criticism. A "senior source" from Washington allegedly told the news outlet that Netanyahu is expected to reject Yaalon's comments, which ripped apart the security plan US Secretary of State John Kerry has laid out for the Jordan Valley. Both the plan and the US itself are widely held, by analysts and the public alike, to be distant from the reality of Israel's security needs and the heart of the...

    This flows in perfectly with the Warmist notion that debate is great, and theyÂ’re willing to debate anyone anytime anywhere, but when challenged disappear and refuse. Why WeÂ’re Shutting Off Our Comments Comments can be bad for science. ThatÂ’s why, here at PopularScience.com, weÂ’re shutting them off. It wasnÂ’t a decision we made lightly. As the news arm of a 141-year-old science and technology magazine, we are as committed to fostering lively, intellectual debate as we are to spreading the word of science far and wide. The problem is when trolls and spambots overwhelm the former, diminishing our ability to...

    Liberals truly are fonts of sophistication and erudition. We know this because liberals tell us, and liberals are smart. They would never mangle words as does Dubya Bush or misspell “potato” like hapless Dan Quayle. But there are some things they would do, and what follows is a sampling. [...] Dog Food Afternoon But perhaps KTVU had graduated from the Patsy Schroeder School of Comedy. During a 1990s budget battle, the Democrats said that if the GOP got its way, the elderly would have to eat dog food to afford medicine. Radio host Rush Limbaugh then spoofed this demagoguery in...

    LONDON (AP) — Britain's High Court ruled Friday that a Christian was unfairly demoted for posting his opposition to gay marriage on Facebook. Adrian Smith was stripped of his management position with the Trafford Housing Trust in northwest England and had his salary cut by 40 percent after posting that gay weddings in churches were "an equality too far." The trust said Smith broke its code of conduct by expressing religious or political views that might upset co-workers. But High Court judge Michael Briggs ruled Friday that Smith had been "taken to task for doing nothing wrong" and found his...
