    Six from the tens of thousands? And they weren't classified then? Only six? Poor guy, you needed hundreds of real ones. Too bad. Keep going, she will get a sympathy vote.

    The committee has forfeited any legitimacy in persecuting them. If they can afford it they should stonewall the committee across the board.

    All those citations are made to try to give seeming legitimacy to the Republican Civil War machine and smoke generator. But it doesn't. They seem to have nothing. When are the "hearings" going to call Colin Powell?

    President Obama was born August, 1961. The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928.

    The MB's candidate, Morsi, was elected President of Egypt in 2012 and was Egypt's first democratically elected President. However, he had promised to give Egypt a secular government but double-crossed his voters and began to install hard line Islamists in government offices. That is, he was a Trojan Horse. He was thrown out.

    Of course we have here the national Republican Party as an American Trojan Horse with a program just as damaging..

    Few Presidents have ever "released" their school records. Every other President has done nothing of the sort.

    "He graduated on Affirmative action." The President is more educated, smarter, and richer than you are. He is likely even conventionally better looking and more presentable. He has been elected President twice in spite of a Civil War against him. Kills you doesn't it?

    Eat bitterness, as they say in China.

    Pick up your Stars and Bars and leave.

    Obama On The Cover Of Crackerjacks

    Fiction? Race is a primary thread in the body of sd's works and a few others. Do you call him out or the pos poster? A real Conservative with some sense of honor would. Of course a real Conservative has no political home these days. Especially with Trickle Down, aka Voodoo Economics, exposed as just a plan to strip the society and economy of assets and investment capital. Today they have nothing.

    Probably, but to get anywhere she has to throw red meat to the ultra right wing mob to get through the Convention. One might suspect that she is running currently for Vice President. Republicans may think there would be advantages in various scenarios if she did. Also hierarchy and authority may go over well with Republican funders, but not with the voters.

    President Obama graduated magna cum laude from the Law School in 1991. That is a matter of public record as are graduation records everywhere. Employers check that all the time. Magna cum Laude means various qualifications, among them grades in the upper few percentile. Obama, we read was also President of the Harvard Law Review. He met his wife there; she had graduated three years earlier from Harvard Law though without the honors.

    People can argue over whether the bulk of change is a result of human activity, but not about the fact of change any more. There is also the reality that there are now 7.3 billion people A reasonable estimate is that it may max out around 10 but could be much more. In any case there must be mostly technology driven change to lessen man's foot print - we and the planet are a single system. Development is the proven way to stabilize populations. Artificial development does the opposite - eg huge amount of oil money to societies that retain their primitive characteristics including hierarchy and very unequal income distribution.

    Interestingly, hierarchy and very unequal income distribution are today's Republican's platform......

    Calling it an actual hoax marks her as a shameless hustler. Republican prospects have to through enough red meat to the mob to be nominated at all that they find themselves unelectable.

    That was one of Romney's problems. We recall that as Governor of Massachusetts he left behind RomneyCare which he had to repudiate. Republicans have raised a mob they can't control, even their would be Plutocrats. Carly does not have any special record of accomplishment, especially as Hewlett Packard CEO and she was fired.

    But you in your genius and cosmic overview see through it all, of course.

    But you always make it clear that you are a racist Crackerjack yourself. You are the obverse of the coin, your peers from the 'hood in Baltimore the reverse.

    We can only do the best our humble selves can do in the truth department. Our English word "truth" comes from some ancestor meaning "reliable" AFAIK. Most other languages have a more artistic concept which can be a trap.

    Absolute truth is an acquired taste through early education though some people have what I call a religious temperament. If they are not given a religion, they will simply invent their own. We see activists of one sort or another doing that. They devote their lives to it and can be quite antisocial, totalitarian, and intolerant.

    Absolute truth has the problem that there are so many absolute truths around and they often differ. Then we inevitably hear that "Error has no rights." Absolute truth is the pretext and sometimes the reason for history's bloodiest mass wars and communal strife.

    In the publication Foreign Affairs Samuel Huntington published a couple of articles in the '90's, "Clash of Civilizations" and "The West and the World". He does flatter us in calling us a liberal democracy since our Pay-To-Play political system, our Founding Flaw, is so out of control that a tiny minority of billionaires can actually have the ambition of buying the United States cheaply and arranging and stratifying it for their themselves.

    In China, "The more things change, the more they stay the same." Of course that is true in other places as well.

    And Walker, Trump, Santorum, Rubio, Perry, Paul, Pataki, Kasich, Jindal, Huckabee, Graham, Gilmore, Fiorina, Cruz, Cristie, and Bush III, the dim warlocks of evil.

    Well, most are not so much evil as not noticeably present in the room. Carson is not on the list as he is respectable but shouldn't be there. He needs to run for the Senate first or for Governor. Some might say the same for Fiorina except she has a record and it isn't very good.

    Model X pricing vs. Model S

    Maybe it suggests what Tesla has to do making a high end car. IMO, there does need to be another generation of battery tech to make the lower priced car line viable. Not necessarily some spectacular increase. Model S's with 375 mike range up, for example.

    In some ways the giga battery factory might be a barrier to entry for other battery schemes that might be intrinsically better. Ditto the SolarCity giga solar cell factory in upstate New York. But Tesla, and hopefully SolarCity are probably pretty agile so we shall see.

    Is there such a thing as an S90D ? If so, wouldn't that have the highest range?

    Some of Tesla's machinery, if memory serves, was picked up cheaply from Detroit during the Crash and shipped. So recent stuff may be more advanced over that than one might think.

    Also a lot of manufacturing IP and software has to come from equipment suppliers as I know it does in other industries. Manufacturers couldn't possibly do ground-up software for all the equipment in a plant especially now with so much functionality moved into communicating software. The software is just a part that comes with it.

    Something that has advanced considerably is the state of the art in simulation in product engineering software. The big companies had a real advantage in buying large computers and programmers to add to software packages years ago. Thanks to Moore's Law and other developments like GPU's, real computing power is much cheaper and software supplied with it more inclusive. Smaller companies can play now, not just in cars but many industries. 3-D printing for prototyping, driven from workstations in ways similar to the networked printing we all likely use, is another jump in the ability of smaller companies to play what used to be over their weight.

    Of course all that has a flip side as Bill Joy pointed out in his Wired Magazine article some years ago. A couple of dedicated people in a really low rent setup in the desert can engineer some nasty devices or do nasty things over Internet connectivity. And a few years hence they will be able to make designer bacteria that may be very dangerous indeed (search for CRISPR). That they would likely do away with themselves we now know is not necessarily a problem. Joy's article was pre-CRISPER and was, IMO, too respectful of AI. It was called "Why The Future Doesn't Need Us", Wired, April 2000 and is available on the Web.

    Based on the pathetic record of men in the Bush II administration, let's just say they're not up to the job of prez yet.

    Woman President

    Both Obama's forfeited their law licenses rather than maintain them. You are lying outright. Michelle Obama is not known to be running for President and is unlikely to be. If they go back to Illinois maybe she could run for the Senate. That used to be and should be an honor, maybe she could help to restore that status.

    It's interesting that recent Republican Presidents married nice housewives. The Democrats married interesting, intelligent, accomplished women. There is nothing wrong at all with being a partner / housewife as a choice, but it's interesting that that's what the Republican's wives apparently have to be.
