More success thanks entirely to Obama, naturally, since the economy is under his sole control and responsibility.
"These findings are alarming because they show that conspiracy theories sow public mistrust and undermine democratic debate by diverting attention away from important scientific, political and societal issues.There is no question as to whether the public should actively demand truthful and transparent information from their governments and proposed explanations should be met with a healthy amount of scepticism, yet, this is not what conspiracy theories offer. A conspiracy theory is usually defined as an attempt to explain the ultimate cause of an important societal event as part of some sinister plot conjured up by a secret alliance of powerful individuals and organizations. The great philosopher Karl Popper argued that the fallacy of conspiracy theories lies in their tendency to describe every event as ‘intentional’ and ‘planned’ thereby seriously underestimating the random nature and unintended consequences of many political and social actions. In fact, Popper was describing a cognitive bias that psychologists now commonly refer to as the “fundamental attribution error”: the tendency to overestimate the actions of others as being intentional rather than the product of (random) situational circumstances."
I need to get a new mouse now, but it's worth it. The blur in the periphery and the hysterical skid mark is easy enough to dismiss.
I've grown up with the name "Redskins" (I'm a third generation Redskins fan) so I'm not sure how I would feel about that, though I do understand where they're coming from. If Snyder had his way I'm sure they'd be called The Washington Snyders.
Out of curiosity can some one remind me how Sarah Palin ended up working out for McCain and the GOP hopes to win the White House in 2008?
An Hispanic conservative has the libs all atwitter. Haven't seen left wingnuts this agitated since Sarah Palin was introduced on the national scene.
I guess Gohmert was worried that Ted Cruz might take his crazy crown.
While addressing the FBI’s work in Boston, Gohmert said that it was “amazing” that the FBI was able to do any investigative work at all because, according to Gohmert, they are being advised by “Muslim Brotherhood members.”
He said that the Obama administration is promoting “radical Islam” and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and in the US, maintaining that “Muslim Brotherhood advisers” have made it “virtually impossible to properly and adequately investigate and defend this country.”

Obama Calls Jason Collins, 'Impressed By His Courage' In Coming Out
President Barack Obama called Jason Collins on Monday to express his gratitude after the NBA player publicly announced that he is gay, two sources familiar with the call told The Huffington Post.
Thank you Mr President. I hope your support encourages other to let go of their hatred and bigotry.
@Broseph_Stylin I know you're talking about the S&P, but for another little reminder, The Dow was 8,078 on 1/23/09 and closed today at 14,840. Socialist.
You mean the moon isn't plotting against me?
None the less, people need to stop engaging the troll, bot directly and indirectly. Your High Priest commands it.
'Kinda torn on this myself. The name is so historically synonomous with football I just don't see the offense towards Natives (not saying it's not offensive, I just don't cringe when I hear it).
OTOH I love my Seminoles and I think the school does an outstanding job preserving and highlighting the role the Seminole nation plays in FL's history - IOW, State doesn't portray the Seminoles as cartoon characters. "Braves," "Indians," "Warriors," "Fighting Sioux" and the like aren't all that dedicated to the people they're trying to endear.
My high school teams were known as the "Warriors" and our mascot was a Native Warrior and the logo was a Native Warrior's head. It was all deliciously un-pc. Recently they finally changed to the Wildcats or Bobcats or something...
Too bad "Raiders" is already taken. How about the Washington Looters?
@mantisdragon91 Sarah Palin gives Paulie a little Boehner.
B|tch was so dumb she couldn't even name a newspaper or magazine she reads, like duhhhhhhhhhhh. Whatever chance grampa had she firmly squashed it with her ignorance and hate.
Just look at the clown cart in 2012. A very polarizing president in a sputtering economy against the best GOP could throw at him.
It says more about the diminishing screaming base and their chances then anything. It'll be a cold day in heck before they see the presidency again if they keep pushing the current crop of critters. But knowing the base they'll keep pushing for people just as ignorant as they are.
Without Sarah Palin on the ticket, McCain would have been lucky to get 40% of the vote.
Do you honestly bother reading anything he posts?
@mantisdragon91 It's linked from Anthony Watts' website; the paper is essentially guaranteed to say the opposite, or at the very least nothing close to, what he claims it says.
There are no socialists left in Russia. They can be found in the White House and on college campuses in this country.
Still unable to read though:
“Journalists say the entire process is very simple: once solar activity declines, the temperature drops. But besides solar activity, the climate is influenced by other factors, including the lithosphere, the atmosphere, the ocean, the glaciers. The share of solar activity in climate change is only 20%. This means that sun’s activity could trigger certain changes whereas the actual climate changing process takes place on the Earth”.
Russian reportings are not about man-made climate change, they're about Solar Cycles and are highly theoretical.
Nahh, he's still just a moron...
It's always fun when GOP tries to outcrazy each others.
Cruz can never hope to equal the death-defying feats of stupidity of goofy Gohmert.
Read a graph? I think you are giving the climate-change deniers more credit than they are due.
Are you calling the Russian scientists liars, Randy?
He looks like he stepped right out of the 30's. Maybe he really did.
Would've been better if he had done this while he was still playing. JC is a free agent that's way past his playing prime; no team will risk the ramifications of picking him up - if would only point out his persona, not his playing ability. It's a no-win.
"These days, I look in the mirror and I have to admit," Obama said. "I'm not the strapping young Muslim socialist I used to be."
Now that took courage. You go, Barry!
It's nice having a President that openly supports equality, irregardless of what bigots might want.
@MementoMori Maybe now Marcus Bachmann and Lindsey Graham will have the courage to follow suit. But I won't hold my breath waiting for it.
Just in case you didn't realize but the moon is slowing the earth down. Our resident troll sees that Obama is taking no action and demands that our president nukes the orbital sphere to ascertain its intentions!
So in a way it is plotting against you.
It won't change him not posting here. I don't give one bit about him. Don't read, don't open his links and have commented once after he more or less agreed with me but thought he didn't. I even gave him a like because he was so stupid.
We've ignored him now for months and he keeps coming back. You really think it's the 'indirect' posting that keeps him coming back?
No - he's whack. Not entirely right in his head.
At this point he's sticking around because he doesn't want to prove us right by leaving. That's just how lost in the head he is.
Actually, it will probably extend his career. The dupes running the NBA won't want to see an openly gay player cut from the roster. It wouldn't be politic to offend the homosexual lobby.
