    Yes, as a taxpayer, I would want my taxes to fund free tuition for higher education AND single payer Medicare for life.

    It would make our country great again.

    A totally corrupt system, exploited by generations of organized criminals.

    Democratic socialism particularly here in the US works extremely well.

  • Attention Deniers: Since I provide information based on peer reviewed journal articles that continuously CRUSHES your silly view about science, I am going to issue a challenge:

    Provide a peer reviewed scientific journal that demonstrates that there is no global warming. You consistently deny, deny, deny, yet provide no evidence to back up your claim. So, provide science based evidence that no warming is occurring.

    HINT: Science is based on facts, your kind use a belief system to justify your denial. Now get busy.

    The Pentagon is considering retroactively demoting retired Gen. David Petraeus after he admitted to giving classified information to his biographer and mistress while he was still in uniform, three people with knowledge of the matter told The Daily Beast.

    The decision now rests with Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, who is said to be willing to consider overruling an earlier recommendation by the Army that Petraeus not have his rank reduced. Such a demotion could cost the storied general hundreds of thousands of dollars—and deal an additional blow to his once-pristine reputation.

    “The secretary is considering going in a different direction” from the Army, a defense official told The Daily Beast, because he wants to be consistent in his treatment of senior officers who engage in misconduct and to send a message that even men of Petraeus’s fame and esteemed reputation are not immune to punishment.

    Pentagon spokesperson Peter Cook told The Daily Beast that Carter had requested the information ex-Army Secretary John McHugh had when he made his recommendation on the matter, before reaching a final decision. McHugh had recommended taking no action against Petraeus.

    “The Department of the Army is still in the process of providing the secretary with information relevant to former‎ Secretary McHugh’s recommendation,” Cook told The Daily Beast. “Once the secretary‎ has an opportunity to consider this information, he will make his decision about next steps, if any, in this matter.”

    Carter could also recommend other actions that don’t result in Petraeus losing his fourth star. Or the defense secretary could simply allow the Army’s previous recommendations to stand.

    In what ways was the President a "push over". How does your view square with the view of other first world countries that view diplomacy as a sign of strength?

    When Bush the Lesser invaded Iraq, it was seen as incredible weakness. Not strength.

    Stop taking your cues from the Heritage Society.

    I would love to hear your stories of "oppression". See drooler, when white privilege is removed, equality seems like oppression.

    So, how did you endure a lifetime of oppression by African-Americans?

    The amount of man-made heat energy absorbed by the seas has doubled since 1997, a study released Monday showed.

    Scientists have long known that more than 90 percent of the heat energy from man-made global warming goes into the world's oceans instead of the ground. And they've seen ocean heat content rise in recent years. But the new study, using ocean-observing data that goes back to the British research ship Challenger in the 1870s and including high-tech modern underwater monitors and computer models, tracked how much man-made heat has been buried in the oceans in the past 150 years.

    The world's oceans absorbed approximately 150 zettajoules of energy from 1865 to 1997, and then absorbed about another 150 in the next 18 years, according to a study published Monday in the journal Nature Climate Change.

    To put that in perspective, if you exploded one atomic bomb the size of the one that dropped on Hiroshima every second for a year, the total energy released would be 2 zettajoules. So since 1997, Earth's oceans have absorbed man-made heat energy equivalent to a Hiroshima-style bomb being exploded every second for 75 straight years.

    "The changes we're talking about, they are really, really big numbers," said study co-author Paul Durack, an oceanographer at the Lawrence Livermore National Lab in California. "They are nonhuman numbers."

    Because there are decades when good data wasn't available and computer simulations are involved, the overall figures are rough but still are reliable, the study's authors said. Most of the added heat has been trapped in the upper 2,300 feet, but with every year the deeper oceans also are absorbing more energy, they said.

    But the study's authors and outside experts say it's not the raw numbers that bother them. It's how fast those numbers are increasing.

    "After 2000 in particular the rate of change is really starting to ramp up," Durack said.

    You are also a part of the group of idiots that are disappointed and angry at diplomacy.

    Remember drooler, the missile caused sanctions to be initiated yesterday, and that missile was fired by the Revolutionary Guards.

    No drooler, your kind are on the wrong side.

  • A historic victory for diplomacy of Barack Obama.

    First, a crisis over the seizure of two U.S. patrol boats, which had trespassed into Iranian waters, was settled peacefully in a day. Then, the Iranians were declared in compliance with the nuclear deal that was signed in July, as a result of which decades-long economic sanctions were lifted. Finally, five Americans were released from Iranian jails as part of a prisoner exchange.

    And yet the leading Republican presidential candidates denounced these deals—which would be impressive achievements in any commander-in-chief’s record-book—as signs of weakness, cowardice, and worse.

    In August, when Obama was making a strong pitch for the Iran nuclear deal, he told a group of columnists in an on-the-record session, “If I presented a cure for cancer, getting legislation passed to move that forward would be a nail-biter.” That understates what the response would be in today’s eve-of-Iowa frenzy. The row of GOP contenders would denounce the cure as a jobs-killer (all those nurses out of a job at Sloan-Kettering) and an aggravation of the housing crisis (all those people, who should have died, crowding the market).

    You might think the prisoner release would put the Republicans in an awkward position. They’ve been pushing Obama to get the Americans freed for months, and now, here they are, back home with their families. Donald Trump tried to resolve the cognitive dissonance by claiming personal credit for the release. “I’ve been hitting them hard, and I think I might’ve had something to do with it,” Trump said in a campaign stop on Saturday. (A minute later, though, he denounced the release anyway, saying it should have happened three or four years ago. How, he didn’t reveal.)
