  • Viking cats: Travelling the high seas helped felines conquer the world

    09/24/2016 3:23:08 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 28 replies
    A study into ancient feline DNA found the emergence of agriculture and boat travel were catalysts — pun intended — for the domestication and proliferation of house cats. The researchers even found evidence of one specific lineage at an ancient Viking site. The large-scale study, which was presented at the International Symposium on Biomolecular Archaeology at Oxford University and reported by the journal Nature, was the first of its kind. Thanks to a 9,500-year-old human burial from Cyprus that also contained the remains of a cat, we know that some form of relationship between cats and humans stretches back at...

    The NRA and other gun lovers use the Second Amendment as proof of their right to bear arms. The Second Amendment is outdated and is of no use in today's society. In fact, the Second Amendment was written as a right to bear arms for colonists to protect themselves against other colonists, Indians and to form a militia in case the British invaded farms and other private lands. To use it today as a law is very silly. If that is all the NRA and their followers have to justify their use of guns, then they will soon lose the...
  • The National Rife Association **will** LOSE! Why? Answer: Schools!

    THE NATIONAL RIFE ASSOCIATION **WILLL** LOSE! They will lose within one generation. Why? THE NRA WILL LOSE BECAUSE THE NATION'S SOCIALIST-ENTITLEMENT K-12 SCHOOLS ARE BIGGER AND STRONGER THAN THE NRA! THE NRA FOOLISHLY FOCUSES ON SKIRMISHES, WHILE PROGRESSIVE/MARXISTS ARE WINNING THE WAR IN THE SCHOOLS. The enemies of the Constitution are feasting on the souls that will be our nation's future voters, and the NRA and its members should not be surprised when the moral foundation upholding the Constitution completely collapses. The NRA will lose because our nation's children are being aggressively taught to fear and hate guns ( and...

    It seems to me that we're holding all the cards in this sequestration negotiation. We don't need to protect a President Romney and have nothing to lose, really. This is the deal I would offer Obama: We'll give you tax increases for $250k and higher. We'll even eliminate the debt ceiling. But, he needs to agree to repeal Obamacare. If he chooses not to accept our offer, tell him he'll have until X date in December, at which point everyone will head home for Christmas and he can explain to the American people why he's putting "economic patriotism" aside for...

    Barack Hussein Obama rules America by manipulating a deep seated shame pattern in all people. Those who let themselves be cast into the image of victims or villains, are fair game for Obama the deceiver. Obama pits class against class, race against race, religion against religion, party against party. Obama is the great divider and his hate, lies and heavy handed tyranny will destroy America unless we wake up. Some people are fed up with Obama's never ending, race baiting and hate filled slander hurled against all who oppose him.. Obama's America is so full of shame that we shake...

    It was a horrible, shocking, unnerving experience. Reading some of the things Barack Obama's pastor has said, I suddenly saw something with which I completely agree!! He said five days after 9/11: "We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye...." His point: Chickens were coming home to roost. I agree. We certainly committed terrorism and murder when we dropped two atomic bombs on open cities in Japan. And, as Ron Paul has said, correctly, re: 9/11: The terrorists were over here because,...

    The enemy you know is way worse than the enemy that acts like your friend only to stab you in the back. Once Republicans have the numbers again in the future they're not going to reduce the size of government in any meaningful way, ever. THAT'S A PROMISE. We're on a one way path to larger and larger government. The way Republicans talk you'd think when they're in power they'd put half the federal government and spending on the chopping block. Surely that's what the republican constituents want, right? I think politicians of both parties forget that they are not...

I am equally embarrassed today. Many of my fellow Americans have let themselves be manipulated by corporate interests and ratings-hungry media. They have become frightened, angry, and unable to cooperate to form a more perfect union. Why do so many Americans have so little faith in our...

    After viewing an article on that asks the question about the current existance of the “liberal media bias”…. I thought I would share a few thoughts on this. Not long ago (10 or 15 years ago) the big buzz on talk radio was how unfair and completely bias the media was - to the left. In fact it’s only in recent years that this proclamation has died down. But I would say the notion of only 1 side being represented on a given subject - has changed dramatically… and is worth noting. The way news is being covered these...

    President Bush has run for President three times. In 2000 he ran for President. He won. In 2002, he bet his Presidency on a GOP return to control of the Senate. He won. In 2004, he fought his critics and he won again. Liberals are making a huge mistake if they think President Bush will be the death of the GOP in 2006. In 1999, 2001, 2003 and 2005 many conservatives pondered at the weak response from the Bush team. We were angered at the inability of the Bush team to get their act together and fight their critics head...

    And what if, this coming November 2, at the same time as millions of Americans, all the world's peoples went to the ballot box to vote? There would be legitimacy in their participation in the election of the president of the world's greatest power. Simply because their lives, their future, depend on it in one way or another. It would be a symbolic gesture, a universal speech in observation of a fact and a direct and unambiguous way of saying that the fate of the world depends in large part on the American presidency. The Vietnamese and the Chileans at...

    Election: It's the Cat People vs. the Dog Lovers Written by Burt Prelutsky Sunday, August 15, 2004 All the pundits who are forecasting the November election, busily analyzing blue states, red states, and those all-important purple swing states, are spinning their wheels. At the risk of sounding even more presumptuous than usual, I contend that they are wasting their time and yours. If you want to know who's going to emerge victorious, all you really need to do is find out how many people have cats living with them and how many have dogs. The cat people, I have decided,...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two cloned kittens have been born using a new cloning method that may be safer and more efficient than traditional methods, a U.S. company said on Thursday. Genetic Savings & Clone promises to clone anyone's pet -- for $50,000 or so -- and started with chief executive officer Lou Hawthorne's own pet cat. The two kittens, Tabouli and Baba Ganoush, were born to separate surrogate mothers in June, the company said. Its report was not submitted for the traditional scientific review process and has not been scrutinized by cloning experts. But the company is less interested in...

  • Last night I snuck in to F911 (didn't want to give Moore $10) (and all I got was this lousy ZOT!!!)

    Thought half of it was BS -- vague implications with no follow through. But the stuff about corporate links to the war, the Afgan pipeline, connections with the Saudis really caught me off guard. I got home and searched for info to debunk everything and only found info that supported Moore's claims. Also, I live in NYC and the "keep them afraid and people will do anything" hit a bit too close to home. Anyone else see it? Anyone else have questions and doubts? I'm not some DUer planting seeds, I'm just wondering how others are incorporating some of F911's...
