    The Trillion Dollar Budget: A proposal

    Don't put words in my mouth. It's fixable, but it is going to take a very long time. As a young employed man I'd be just fine if you instantly gutted the entire budget. I asked before and I'll ask again. What happens to the millions of Americans relying on medicare to get the drugs they need to...

    The Trillion Dollar Budget: A proposal

    Enormous, system wide, sweeping changes like that are impossible in the real world. What happens to the millions of Americans relying on medicare to get the drugs they need to live out the next month? The seniors who rely on Social security to eat? How is the lumbering bureaucracy that...

    NFL Preseason and Regular Season thread!

    The hold was difficult to see, and by the time the camera cut to behind the play (where you got a good view of #21) he was far away. There was a hold, though

    Gallup: Obama's Approval at All-Time Low--Among Liberals

    Approval ratings drop over time. Clinton and Reagan aside, every president's approval rating was at an all time low pretty much all the time since WWII Wiki Link

    Told You So: Florida's New Drug Testing Policy Already Costing Taxpayers More

    Tough to do when you post a broken link. And if the evidence you think you're presenting is that it lost money before, why did you post the current results instead? I notice that you don't refute my post. I take it you agree that it's impossible to draw conclusions about this latest policy...

    Told You So: Florida's New Drug Testing Policy Already Costing Taxpayers More

    Didn't even notice that. The article compares the cost of the one-time drug test to the savings over a six week period, while the families will be off benefits indefinitely. That's misleading enough to border on dishonest

    Told You So: Florida's New Drug Testing Policy Already Costing Taxpayers More

    The results of a miniscule amount of cases in one department of one region of florida tells you exactly nothing. Google tells me that there are 3.1 million welfare recipients in Florida. Drawing conclusions from 40 of them is nuts.

    Massive Apple security hole discovered in its laptops.

    If somebody has physical access to your battery they could disable it much more easily by smashing it with a hammer. The entire concept of hacking a battery is just silly

    Obama decrees 54.5 miles per gallon

    This is not true. Engines have a peak efficiency band and it is not at the bottom. Your car is more efficient at 60 than it is at 20.

    Should The U.S. Have A Debt Ceiling?

    Yes, since it is part of the mechanism which allows the Treasury to provide the funds specified by the federal budget without forcing congress to individually authorize bond issues in addition to the passing budget. It's just an administrative tool which has only been hijacked for political...

    Do You Favor Gambling Expansion to Help Answer Financial Problems?

    Took a class on the effects of legalized gambling a few years back, and as it turns out legalized gambling doesn't help govermental financial woes. Unless you're Vegas legalized gambling brings in minimal tourist dollars, and the tax revenue you do see is almost entirely cannibalized from other...

    House members to sue Obama administration over Libya mission

    Source: CNN A positive development. I am in favor of US involvement of Libya, but not the extent or the flaunting of the law involved in the ordeal. The administration was rather bold in openly stating that it intended to ignore the War Powers Act, and I feared that it would go unchallenged...

    Climate scientists' predictions proving accurate

    As the site states, regional variations balance each other out, and there is no global trend. I fail to see how this supports your assertion of an increasing global trend.

    Climate scientists' predictions proving accurate

    EPA reports that there is no global trend in total precipitation [Source] You also appear not to have read your own sources, as they do not support your assertion.

    Climate scientists' predictions proving accurate

    There is no such trend. Below is a graph of strong tonados per year from the NOAA You are seizing on an individual weather event and attempting to draw a trend from it

    Climate scientists' predictions proving accurate

    Individual weather events cannot be linked to climate change. The predicted trends are long term predictions and individual storms a couple of years later are not evidence of their validity. These threads are as ridiculous as the "it's cold somewhere, therefore global warming is a scam" threads.

    More effects of Global warming!

    Every year tens of thousands of individual record highs and record lows are measured in the US alone. Since the 70's the ratio of record highs:lows has gone from 0.7 to 2.0. [Source] [Original Source] "It's cold somewhere" is not an argument against global warming, and "global warming means...

    Is Sarah Palin's use of the American flag a breach of federal law?

    Yes she did, in the exact same way that every 4th of July barbecue I've ever been to has breached federal law.
