“Racism gonzo? (Tongue in cheek) It's true its gone if they're talking about the mass lynching; forbidden inter-racial relationships and marriages; and white sheets with the open KKK meetings.

But even IF the GOP weren't that stupid and didn't mean that Tweet then they really need to hire a new marketer and new employees to think before they post something like that.

Seriously, the GOP are their own worst enemy. They should KNOW that ANY slip up is going to ripped apart by people.

“Such a facetious question. NO.

While I was happy to be able to stumble around Paris being able to say basic phrases, I otherwise have had zero use for it. French is for French people; for visiting France and any of the colonies or a Federal government job.

Otherwise, use it or lose it. French classes from grade 5 through 11 and I still have no mastery at any level.

Boondoggle. However, with that said, ou est la salle de bain s'il vous plait?”

“I lived in France for 15 years and I have to say even after living in Paris already for 3 I was taking a taxi ride home and the taxi driver said he was from Portugal. I said I loved Portugal. The Portuguese are warm people. What I actually said was I love Portugal the portuguese are horny :-)”

Nancy Stewart Cockburn on Nov 22, 2013 at 17:34:01

“No offense but I think you were asking for a room with a bath tub. Not a washroom. You were indicating you wanted to wash your body. That is what a salle de bain means in French French. Quebecios is another matter.”

“Civilized society does many things including coddling the dense. Political correctness; manners and politeness have their place but in many situations, by not saying anything or diluting our criticisms, people either ignore or the reaction is so small that it has little to no effect.

Miley Cyrus - if she did that at a party, she'd probably be a laughing stock at school but as a consequence of another part of society - money is the great equalizer.

If any of us had a billion dollars and walked around in a tricorn hat; fur coat and gumboots, we probably would care very little”

“Depends on how you look at it. If you're talking only of the value of a human life, then he's right and there's no debate. But if we're looking at a population that has their basic needs met - technology/Internet can help deliver low cost education to help organize; connect and mobilize groups and populations.

But as the Maslow hierarchy of needs shows, you cannot focus on or achieve a higher level until you've fulfill the current or lower one.

“If the world's climate is changing, I don't care if its a natural cycle or not.  Humans are a significant contributor and even that is a red herring.  The real question should be about how and in the way we use resources.  We're just killing the planet.  1.7 billion and growing.  That's the real scam when people justify no climate change but not understanding just population alone has an impact on the planet.  To deny that humans have no role in this at all is just a gap in common sense.”

“And now there are tears in my eyes - relief for a government re-opened yet sadness for a great aging country that reflects, celebrates yet hides its greatness in times that are passing it by.

There's still hope I feel; a hope that I cannot see yet a hope that's slowly becoming harder to envision due to a government that steadfastly refuses to govern.”

kwaut lizard on Oct 13, 2013 at 01:42:41

“Worse than that is that science conflicts with either their religious dogma or that of their constituents. A conflict that is totally unnecessary and very harmful at best. The inability to understand science allows it to be portrayed as a threat and with deteriorating education, even more easily portrayed in that dim light. Lifer politicians are a massive threat on so many levels, finance, business, socially, realpolitik, policy, church and state, ... but it is science that is the target of vocal ire because of broad ignorance amongst the populace.  ”

“Yeah, I'll have to call you on this one as a bit of an unfair swipe at Obama.

Its no longer a measure of belief. The country's economic balance sheet are now so skewed that American had to trim. At the height, Apollo was a merely 4 cents out of every tax dollar. Now its less than half a penny (0.48%).

NASA's budget was 18 billion last year. Military spending was 1.4 trillion. American is #1 and spends more than the next 10 countries COMBINED.

Think of what NASA could do if they cut the difference between the US and #2.”

kwaut lizard on Oct 11, 2013 at 01:30:32

“You see, the sciences are the fields that resolutely expose how inept, uneducated and opportunistic our political representatives truly are. The current President has never actually taken this approach of addressing the sciences as a direct threat but clearly several democrats and more than a few republicans have definitively aligned themselves against science. I suggest you simply support the sciences in the face of any politician under the current threat that this represents to our education, technological base, scientific endeavours and the future of our country.
