Re: 4th of July

What is really sad (and maddening) is when a student brings something like this into the classroom. There are unfortunately people that get a thrill out of intentionally perpetuating distortions like this. I am not talking about Old Scout, he was just a victim of this sort of thing.

Re: What's going on with the Tea Party?

And one of the things that made Stalin and company so successful was the susceptibilty of the weak-minded to conspiratorial paranoia and self-induced fear.

Re: What's going on with the Tea Party?

Interesting how people will regurgitate fabrications that have been debunked again and again.

The Tea Party effect continues to push for more extreme ideologues as candidates:

So what are the criteria for this law? Will they use a color chart like the paint store, if you are a little too dark they then ask you for your "papers"?

They have been self-destructing for some time. Their idea of presenting an argument is to drive around in a circle and honk their horns.

Re: Wolves kill bear hounds

With 150 homicides, 1500 rapes and 10,000 aggravated assaults by humans on humans in Wisconsin alone last year, is there really an issue if a wolf kills a human? All of those are intentional. A wolf is a carnivore and includes mostly hooved quadripeds in its diet but also eats other animals. We pay ...

Re: Wolves kill bear hounds

Wolves have the capacity to eat 7500 deer or so per year (15 x 500). Many of those have been wounded by incompetent hunters or hit by cars and cannot get away. Cars kill 50,000 that are reported and an estimated 50,000 more that are unreported. All the wolf haters should be driving around with bumpe...

Where do you see the "damage" in trying to keep graft and money-for-favors out of politics? Yes the current supreme court thinks money is free speech. So if you are wealthy you get more say and get to make the rules while the man on the street is disenfranchised. Boy, that sounds like demo...
