Well, Tgace, with that one witty and decisive comment [/end sarcasm], you have demonstrated one of two things.
#1 You, as you have stated in the past, are just here on MT to "rile people up", and don't really stand behind, or mean, any of your posts. So we should disregard what you write...
lol, for a site that has things written such as
I'm not amazed.
What exactly is an anti-correlation? A negative correlation? A zero correlation?
May sound like nitpicking, but if the writer were in my Research Methods class, that would earn him or her a 0.
Science is an approach to gathering information in what is ideally a testable, methodical, reproducible manner, based not on personal opinion or bias, but on what is empirically measurable (for a bit of a redundancy there).
If we all waited for a 100% consensus on anything in the field of science, which at the higher levels is remarkably democratic, we'd be waiting...well, a very long time. Is string theory valid if it's descriptive but not testable? What's the deal with all that dark matter?
OK. The majority...
lol - don't worry, you haven't hurt my feelings. A long time ago you said you're only here on MT to "bait the bears" anyways, right? :)
I get tired of the fact that if someone disagrees with the status quo in this country right now, because we've got a war on, it's "unpatriotic". I am not...
So if someone breaks a window in your house, that entitles you to go shoot into a crowd - or kill them and bury them in the woods?
And folks firing into crowds of civilians in the South are given, what, a ticker-tape parade?
Aren't we all civilized and law-abiding.
Marginally. What do you prefer for memorial services?
I'm far more impressed by the folks sending care packages, letters, and supplies to the still-living troops, myself - and the folks who are remembering their dead with solemnity.
I must be terribly old-fashioned.
Really? The President is so busy he can take a month vacation at his ranch? Wow. We should all be so busy.
I think it's ridiculous to say that a mother is cheapening her own son's death. I believe Mrs. Sheehan finds her son's death cheapened by being used to continue a war which fewer...
Oh of course not - because a rock concert is the way to go.
You can go one of two ways:
1) Throwing a big party with a rock concert is kind of a tasteless way to remember the dead, and those currently dying in Iraq, for an event unrelated to Iraq (but who remembers those pesky WMDs and...
I leave for a while, and the "we're at war, and you have to love the war and die for the war and put up and shut up!" folks have arrived. lol!
Simply because other families have not been granted an audience by no means limits Mrs. Sheehan from demonstrating to get the President to listen to...
Another bit of distracting fluff fanfare, attempting to roll the 9/11 terrorist attacks into the war in Iraq, still trying to make that nonexistent link.
Maybe I'd be more impressed if our President, who has taken another full month off (since when did Presidents get months off?) on his ranch...
Sad, very sad.
It seems that people have forgotten what makes our country truly great - its ideals of liberty and freedom...rather than bankrupting the nation to give gifts to multinational corporations, and continue a war on a noun.
But I digress.
