McCain wants nuclear power plants, so maybe he's your man? The principle thing that demonstrates the stupidity of nuclear power is that no insurance company in the world will insure an American power plant. Nada. None. And they're the ones who know how to actually evaluate risk. I think I'm going t...

OK Moondog you want him for entertainment I get that. I think most of us Laugh at RCH on a regular basis. Maybe, on the weekends George and RCH can do infomercials on the HSN Channel. George can describe for the viewing audience the many features of the BS5000 Sierne Super Blender. While George is t...

As an ex-homophobe I can understand a little better now as to what is going on with Gay relationships. This is from my personal experiences, not from an authority educating me to his belief system. Congrats Kaz. I have still run into a few people who have chosen a lifestyle, in my opinion. A few tim...

Rape is used in this manner because every country has used it during war. Even in civilized countries, like the U.S., where women are supposedly more respected, look at the gang rapes that go on--both in the rural areas, and in the inner cities. It's the PACK MENTALITY , I think. Whether it's happe...

Let me first say I believe in Heavenly Father but I don't believe in Religion. Secondly, History tells the stories of many civilizations, from birth to death. They each followed a common thread, from humility and adherence, to abscence of humility and adherence, for the rules from a divinity. Wheter...

My perspective on this issue doesn't fall squarely into the pro and con camps out there. I don't agree with it but not for the reasons normally given by the religious right. I'm not sure how far I'm willing to go down this Political Road. For me it's more political posturing instead of morality. Tha...

So anyway, a bunch of us never believed the hype and a bunch of us lost respect for Powell long ago. Now, if he can bring some voters to Obama, good. I have many problems with Powell myself. I do know from my study of him that he is an accomplished politician, as are all Generals. I have also perso...

I have to admit, I fell victim to the propoganda being pumped out of the White House as well on a near daily basis. Like you, I couldn't have cared less about the WMD. The man had gassed his own people, he was firing on our planes patrolling the no-fly zone, and he was playing games with the U.N. I...

also, have you considered that we may have progressed to a point where a lawful and peaceful solution to our woes may be logistically impossible? it seems pretty evident that many of the new laws seem aimed at silencing any serious critics of our current system. they'll hear you talking smack about...

i appreciate your points, vr. i have to disagree with the assertions that colin was duped, as he did have access to the information as well as the "intelligence." the air force and doe told him what was what, point blank. it is possible that he felt that they were pushing some weird, secret agenda,...
