And of course he's the kind of person who hates that concept of Net Neutrality. Only in the USA !

This is priceless, but before you laugh too much at the stupids across the pond remember that US health insurer Anthem/Blue Cross covers chiropractic treatments.
 
Welcome to modern international conservatism, and the reason you hear that shrieking-spinning sound from the graves of Barry Goldwater, Winston Churchill, William F. Buckley and Edmund Burke. And lava spewing from the grave of Adam Smith. … Then segue from this proud British moment to our own Senate Science leader - James Imhofe.  

But let’s be balanced. While this sort of drooling insipidity is typical of today’s mad entire-right… there is some of this also on today’s ditzy FARthest-left.  Our struggle is not just with ISIS. It is far more with enemies of the Enlightenment that we have home-grown.

Oh. Have you guys the courage to look at something else cringeworthy?

The crux here is not whether there are still questions to ask about climate change. Never let the denialist cultists make it about that! Always bring it back to their cult's absolute refusal to negotiate practical precautionary measures - to do more R&D or boost energy efficiency, JUST IN CASE the smartest people on the planet also turn out (amazingly) to be right, after all. Sensible skeptics would engage in such negotiation of TWODA...

... but the cult won't even do that. Why? Who benefits from obstructing even moderate improvements in efficiency?

The owners of the GOP. The coal barons and Saudi princes and Faux fear mongers. Funny coincidence that!

The hysterics from the internet thugs is in itself ample evidence that we are on the right track. The silliness of using the age of the original laws as a mocking point is especially stupid. I assume they also think that any law derived from the now useless US Constitution from over 200 years ago is also automatically flawed.

"Perhaps I'm betraying my years, but in Washington policy circles there has always been tension between those interested in solving problems and those who see policy disputes as a test of ideology."

Boy, do I know how he feels.

So, the Holder guy thinks his job is too hard. That must be why he didn't go after the Banksters his buddies.

Well the link in this comment box works fine for me.  You would think since Google is now tied to YouTube, Youtube links would work in Google+ on yer iPad.  Now I am wondering how can I post photos in Google+ comments.  It's a no brainer on Fakelook.  Just click on the camera icon and bingo, uploaded.

I would have expected Beiber to be at the top of the International Crimes list.

I certainly didn't know that the vulcan salute was a religious greeting. The stuff I learn here :-)

I'm sure the net is not safe yet and as you can tell from the hysterics eminating from the Blaze and likeminded "evildoers" the fight is sure to continue.

That truth is there even when we are not watching it, 365.25 days a year.
 
What a beautiful, secluded  tourist getaway.

One of these stunning beauties just pulled into the marina. It is a 3-year-old 50-footer being delivered from England to San Diego. The website pictures don't do the boats justice.

Wonderful meat soup. Wonderful bread with herring. Just simple and really good food.

We went to this restaurant because of the 19 (?) 5-star (!) reviews. The food wasn't excessively expensive but the lobster feast was so smothered in heavy sauces that you really couldn't taste anything but the sauce. This is the first meal in Iceland that has been disappointing.
