July 2011

Obama was in on it from the get go..

Call me a conspiracy nut, but i cant help but think that given the past few years of GOP obstruction that the President didnt chose to raise the debt ceiling before losing the house. When asked why, he responds that he thought the GOP would act "responsibly"...right

Shouldve not left that stone unturned mr. President...

Which only leads me to believe this whole crisis theater was either part of the plan, or the President is even more naive than we thought.

This debt deal must be filibustered!

Remember how Lieberman held up Healthcare? Bernie Sanders, and anyone else with cojones should do the same with this debt deal. Just stand firm. In the end , no one wants the US to default, so the worse case scenario you get is a clean raise. Come on Bernie!

Debt Dumbness.

It is probably wise to assume this is a right wing Christian cell of Norgen Oogen Blasten.

Then again, this won't raise any media attention whatsoever.

Origins Debate: A Biochemical Sketch

Thom:

I heard a bit of your talk with the Discovery Institute rep last Thursday. I'm a fan of your show and listen because you give opposing views a hearing and are generally polite.

What bugs me Thom, as an educated person who is scientifically literate with background in journalism and a liberal perspective, is hearing the origins debate repeatedly described as "Science versus Religion" or "The Bible versus Science," etc. ad nauseum.
