Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

Surefoot, ask any kid about Noah's Ark, and see how many get that 'right'.

Smoke Smoke Smoke (that cigarette) Tex Williams or Commander Cody version, sums up the tobacco industry. The ties to the Kochs I was unclear on, but given their propensity for planet and human harmful policies, no surprise.

"Does the Earth go around the Sun, or does the Sun go around the Earth?"

If you answered the latter, you're among a quarter of Americans who also got it wrong, according to a new report by the National Science Foundation.

a new report by the National Science Foundation.

A survey of 2,200 people that was released Friday revealed some alarming truths about the state of science education across the country, with many failing to an answer even the most basic astronomy and science questions, according to a release about the survey.

Out of nine questions in the survey, participants scored an average 6.5.

Only 39 percent answered correctly with "true" when asked if "The universe began with a huge explosion,"

while only 48 percent knew that "Human beings, as we know them today, developed from earlier species of animals," according to the statement.

They don't make patriots like they used to.

"The two main organizations identified in the UCSF Quarterback study are Americans for Prosperity and Freedomworks. Both groups are now "supporting the tobacco companies' political agenda by mobilizing local Tea Party opposition to tobacco taxes and smoke-free laws." Freedomworks and Americans for Prosperity were once a single organization called Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE). CSE was founded in 1984 by the infamous Koch Brothers"

"Published in the peer-reviewed academic journal, Tobacco Control, the study titled, 'To quarterback behind the scenes, third party efforts': the tobacco industry and the Tea Party, is not just an historical account of activities in a bygone era. As senior author, Stanton Glantz, a University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) professor of medicine, writes:

"Nonprofit organizations associated with the Tea Party have longstanding ties to tobacco companies, and continue to advocate on behalf of the tobacco industry's anti-tax, anti-regulation agenda."

Why The Tea Party?: A new academic study confirms that front groups with longstanding ties to the tobacco industry and the billionaire Koch brothers planned the formation of the Tea Party movement more than a decade before it exploded onto the U.S. political scene.

Far from a genuine grassroots uprising, this astroturf effort was curated by wealthy industrialists years in advance. Many of the anti-science operatives who defended cigarettes are currently deploying their tobacco-inspired playbook internationally to evade accountability for the fossil fuel industry's role in driving climate disruption.

The study, funded by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institute of Health, traces the roots of the Tea Party's anti-tax movement back to the early 1980s when tobacco companies began to invest in third party groups to fight excise taxes on cigarettes, as well as health studies finding a link between cancer and secondhand cigarette smoke."

Gay marrige will lead to the same thing straight marriges do, divorce. Just ask Newt and Rush about their holy commitments.

MORE Tea Party lunacy, this from golden boy Rand Paul. He is Kentucky senator who thinks that gay marriage will lead to ********** (zoophilia). That situation is LEGAL in Kentucky. Smaller Government in action.

In America, those in power abuse us taxpayers across the board.

I just read that American Automobile Companies can only stay competitive on the backs of the workers, with lower pay and benefits, which is a false narrative. In actuality, in Germany Auto companies pay their workers twice as much as American manufacturers, and produce twice as many cars. And Germany survived the global recession much easier than the rest of us uninformed saps.

Those abuses are real normanlake, just as the abuses in every power center in America. Period.

It is Americans that are not faring well. The clowns that run the circus are doing quite well. The aforementioned 'scandals' were a distraction, and the bickering clarified NOTHING. The IRS could very well be abolished, we do not need them, if they allow the Corporate control of what is supposed to be a tax exempt status for EXCLUSIVE non-profit use, and NOT for advancing a political agenda. STILL nothing on GOP interference with free market enterprise?

GOP is fast becoming a joke, I agree. They better pull themselves together.

The democrats aren't faring any better and they know it.

Knock Knock! Anybody there? Yep, I'm here and I agree. Change the law, don't use it for political attacks.

Tea Party, smaller government? Laugh clown laugh. The issue I brought up is just that, Government interference in Business. Tell me, 'freeman', how is that smaller?

You didn't hear anything from Schumer when the democratic counterparts put up hit ads on Mitt Romney.

Let's contrast the message:

TEA Party - Smaller government, sound money and fiscal responsibility.

Democrats - Mitt killed a woman, Mitt didn't pay taxes, Mitt dismantled companies....

All a person has to do is look critically at the messages.
