Are you opposed to our RIGHT TO VOTE! We should encourage higher voter turnout to preserve our Democracy. Soros is a supporter of Democracy and is willing to pay for it from his own funds.
There is no denying you are an informed person. Just reach a bit further. We will eventually be able to undo some of the harm we have already done to our planet by excessive use of fossil fuels. Bangladesh and other countries / including USA -Florida / Texas / Louisiana, will also bear the consequence to a lesser extent. People with pulmonary problems could pay with their lives. Global warming is not a myth, even 1 degree centigrade rise can cause substantial damage.
Hillary Clinton is wonderful leader and will make America and the World a BETTER place to live.
Stop thinking, Mind has a special way of playing tricks. Bill and Hillary Clinton are honorable leaders, don't let politics create false fears. You can only control your vote, so check out your candidate and let others do the same.
CONSERATIVES have their ideas extrapolated from Faith, LIBERALS ideas are founded on Science.
Germany is a much smaller country, transmission losses increase as the distance between the sources of energy and consumption increase. You are right wind energy needs an alternate source. Coal or Nuclear are base load plants, Nuclear specially is designed to operate at full load only and is safest when operated at full load. Combined cycle Natural Gas plants can now be used as peaking units. Not long ago, peaking power cost was expensive. Drop in NG price has eased that problem. However NG plants now are cheaper and competitive. Its not always a question of economics today, fossil sources are finite. YES, technology development will change the equation in future but only if we invest in it. Our goal should be to protect non renewable sources and develop renewable source. We must commit to maintain and hopefully clean our planet EARTH. There are environmental (noise pollution) and bird fatalities associated with wind energy also. Unless we invest in these technologies their so called problems will linger.
They say Amarillo Texas and Canada are only separated by barbed wire. Wind energy is reliable in that region, but we need better transmission lines to fully use this resource.
So lets see " Sending troops to look for WMD" was doing GOD's work. Preventing increase in Minimum wage is doing GOD's work. Preventing poor to avail of Affordable Health care is doing GOD's work. Unfortunately my intellect is unable to decipher Republican ways of Ticket to Heaven. You would not need any waivers if you have SINGLE PAYER system. It appears its Honorable action for a Republican to use the laws to avoid Taxes. However its Dishonorable for Democrats to exploit the same law. Lets get rid of these laws, do a fact check and see who wants to keep these laws.
If you are a DEMCRAT your so called "SINS" of wanting to
1.Eliminate tax loopholes= wealth redistribution.
2. Affordable Health Care = Socialist Care
3. Minimum Wage increase = Job Killer
4. Vote for a DEMOCRAT
I can go on and on, but I hope others will add.
THESE are unforgivable SINS, and if you embrace them you get a non stop ticket to HELL.
If you are a REPUBLICAN your "SINS" are forgiven and your "FABULOUS DEEDS" of watching FOX, Listening to Limbaugh, Supporting NRA., Denying Global warming, VOTE for a Republican, are REWARDED.
Just observe these and you WILL GET A FIRST CLASS TICKET TO HEAVEN
Miracles happen in mysterious ways!
Predators are those who take away affordable health care. Those who skew taxes to make middle class pay higher rate than those making billions. You convenetly forget Republicans who had affairs in Governors, Senators, Mayors, House Speakers! Hillary will be the best President ever.
Go look up, how many FOR PROFIT schools have a good reputation, many have gone out of business. They can and usually provide adequate skills for some jobs. Higher probability that top jobs will go to graduates of better schools.
Corporations and Businesses also provide excellent products and services most of the time. But their existence is profit motive. One cannot apply the same criteria to TOP Private Universities. BAD private schools have profit motives only, their purpose is profit motive. Maybe some one else can use better words to describe the thoughts.
What defines a Private University? FOR PROFIT SCHOOLS : Schools where profit is the primary purpose, these to me are akin to Corporations and Businesses. TOP schools including IVY league schools have Spreading the Knowledge as the driving force and are not for profits. These schools offer scholarships and receive grants, I don't know if the make a profit or how they spend it. Perhaps others have a better information. Something about another thread made me think.
Again you are RIGHT, however you refuse to see the entire picture. Only affluent class can afford to go to private schools at high school level. However, when you include faith based schools their educational quality lacks. Public school have a responsibility to provide a minimum level of education and cannot refuse a student within their district. As usual, to promote a predetermined answer, you pick and choose your points. Mr. Limbaugh schools of BS.
AGREED!!!!!!!!!! However, I can assure you the bottom 50 schools will also be private schools.
In USA yes, in other countries NO. Also if you include all Private schools you will get a different result. TOP Private Schools attract Research grants and that helps them to attract the Best and the Brightest students. However majority of private schools are far inferior to State schools.
Why are Republicans hung up on small business? Do Republicans really care for them? They get their contributions from BIG business. Reread your own post, you will see absence of Nations Top Schools. Care about all citizens not just small business owners. OK, conversely why should anyone other than small business owners care for them?
Collecting accurate news is expensive and does not generate excitement. Controversy created by Talk shows and drama by reality shows are cheap, require little ability to digest the information and generate huge financial returns. However the smarter and savvy viewers will in time figure the formula. Talk shows know how to exploit emotions of a few and feeds them TALKING POINTS as news. Captured audiences then refuse to believe science or logical thinking and revere those who actually exploit them for personal monetary gains (talk show hosts)
Don't confuse abundance of Natural resources as success of the Governor. The wealth in Texas is held by a few. Success is where majority of citizens enjoy financial success and a decent quality of life. A State where science thrives, the quality of education and the Universities are the BEST in the world. Texas has the potential but not political support. Just look up the map, you will notice the IVY league schools are located in Blue States. Its not a coincidence, citizens respond to their surroundings. If you provide High Quality education, you will have more educated residents. These better educated students will in return raise the quality of schools.
You have only 2 parties, we cannot just look at each Obama administration by itself, you have to compare with the prior administration. The record speaks for itself. #$%$ Cheney meeting with Oil executives, misinformation on WMD. Far too many subjects, human memory tends to overlook the past since the change has reduced the stress of past. Obama administration is / was / will be far more open than the previous Republican administration. By no means that means Obama is perfect, he is just vastly superior than his predecessor.
