"....85 people shot to death, on average, EVERY SINGLE DAY by guns."
You may be on to something there, "gore".
In all the 85 incidents/day you're citing, if you find a single damn one in which a gun was responsible without a person holding and controlling it, I'll join up.
Guns should not be allowed to run amok, like the gangs going around knocking people out. Let us all know if you can find a single documented case of a gun acting on its own.
".... curious scientists to wonder just what it might mean here on Earth."
Most will just remain silent and maybe be thought fools.
Vermowitz will tell you an answer, removing all doubt.
You are correct about the meaning of "begs the question", and, fwiw, it annoys me too to see it so often misused.
That said, you don't have any more rhetorical honesty in your illogical claim that Creamer could not have written any number of pages of the health care bill just because he didn't know Obama would win. Clinton had tried before to get some kind of health care bill passed and if she were to succeed in 2008, would certainly need some sort of text. If she'd had the skills of Obama and the leadership of Reid and Pelosi, there would have been Hillarycare, looking just like Obamacare, written (not as you say, by the "Senate Finance Committee") by the flacks and hacks, administrative assistants et al., who hang around the Senate and House with pages and pages of predigested legislative gruel to slop on whatever plate they're handed. A nice package of 628 pages would slip in just fine, or be parsed into subchapters as needed.
You used a cute rhetorical trick in repeating your statement about Creamer, this time with the intent to cast doubt on his criminal status and doubtful fitness to author anything for a bill. You do accept that he was a felon, right?
Not so. You're still the same now as then; they couldn't provide adequate treatment.
Then again, who knows, I've only been to three countries and never had to interact with any of their healthcare systems, while you've been to five and needed help in all five. Maybe it's you.
An international survey released last week by the Commonwealth Fund, a research organization, shows why health care change is so necessary.
The organization you cited has its own biassed agenda, but that's not surprising.
Open-ended recommendations, moreover, are the most fun: "...why health care change is necessary." can mean anything you might want it to mean, a la Alice in Wonderland's Queen of Heart, so it's not surprising that you would find a fantasy support for your opinion.
Certainly, a change is needed. We need to start by scrapping Obamacare. It started with false premises and lies, and went downhill from there.
Are you seriously selling that as a valid explanation? The BLS calls the recently unemployed, the 6.7% now dropped from ILF, members of NILF openly and boldly highlighting the very point I made and you drink the Kool-Aid to mean that the 7.2% unemployment rate and the 6.7% unemployed-but-not-anymore-considered-in-the labor force" should not be combined to a real "outawork" level of at least 13%.
Obviously, only the similar sizes of NILF and ILF allows the %'s to be added, but they ARE those similar sizes and the summation is valid.
"... then you agree that a typhoon is the same evidence as a hurricane for globakl warming..."
Well, since you framed the question so precisely, I'd like to weigh in and say "yes". It is no evidence at all for globakl warming, or for global warming either, in either case. It is evidence that there is weather on this planet.
Also, you should at least occasionally stop trying to cloud the issue by using "Anthropogenic Global Warming" when you mean the largely imaginary effect of people on the climate, and not "global warming" which is why we have such a balmy average temperature despite black body radiation.
A way around that would be to count "able to work" and compare that to "in labor force" but we'd have too much controversy about those hanging around during the work-day "able, but not interested; able, but not willing' able, but, but, but.... at least some of whom are perfectly willing to just take the government check. as their daddy did before them, having not yet won the lottery.
The point about the government unemployment rate is that THEY only make a ratio of employed to those still included in the labor force, but when someone no longer collects unemployment insurance and still does not have a job (even if he wants one and is looking for work), he's dropped from the "in labor force". Your own quote shows that that's the case.
So if 72/1000, 7.2% unemployment rate, is recalculated when 10 people are no longer included in the list at all, with no other changes, the new number is based on 62/990, which is a rate of less than 6.4%, but the rate calculated this way is misleading. The reductio is that when the 72 have finally fallen off the rolls, with no other changes, the rate is 0/928, or 0%
You're trying to learn Obama's technique of causing the very problem he wants to campaign against, but it's not working. Now you want to mock something that is the end game for Obama and that you also approve of. It won't work. Palin is criticizing the process and the possible outcome: you seek it.
,,,what do you consider to be fraudulent?
You and everything that informs your philosophy, essentially, your essence, you. Did you have any other Socratic questions, fool? Did your public schooling involve a trained teacher or a trained seal?
" ...idiotically yells that Obama should be impeached for not raising the debt ceiling....AND for raising the debt ceiling. This is a high order of stupidity, even for cousin-humping redddnexxxxx.."
The stupidity is all yours. The fact is that Obama does NOT have the authority to do EITHER. Bleat on.
It's also interesting that the deductible ($12,700) is about the amount that needs to be spent on healthcare after insurance coverages, before the healthcare costs become tax deductible...on an income of $180,000.
Way to redistribute that income, Mr. Thief in Chief.
Sen. John McCain says the Obamacare defund detour may hurt the Republican Party for years to come.
But it's probably no worse than Sen. John McCain has done all by himself. How revealing that the media and Pilodialcyst think that John McCain speaks for the Republican Party. Even sadder that it might be true.
Not sure why you're being coy. I believe you have shown in the past a great willingness to take on the frankenfood folks, and I see Dow's soybean offering much closer to frankenfood than RR seeds ever were.
