In other words, this allows the anti-vaxxers and religious nuts to go to their chiropractor, osteopath or other quack to get an exemption. Hell there are plenty of MDs that will write a prescription for anything you want for $50.
He doesn't sound much like a libertarian. More like a Republican trying to look cool.
Umm, I pay Comcast to delivery content to me. If I want to stream video from a content provider, that's my decision. I make the request, not the content provider. The request for data is coming from Comcast's customer, not the content provider.
If Comcast is losing money because of the requests that I make, then they need to change their pricing structure with me, not blackmail the content provider.
We need enforcement of current laws. I have never, never, seen anyone pulled over for talking or texting on the phone. Let alone charged for it.

Canola was created using traditional cross-breeding techniques. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C... That this idiot with a blog doesn't know the difference between that and genetically modified organisms probably shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

Abbott got caught trying to purge minority voters from the voter rolls. He's probably got a few more tricks up his sleeve that he doesn't want people to find out about:
Yet not a one climate model (to my knowledge) takes into account the biggest heat source and the biggest driver of that heat source.
First hit is:
most up-to-date climate models—including those used by the United Nations’ prestigious Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)—incorporate the effects of the sun’s variable degree of brightness in their overall calculations.
This wasn't difficult. Are you being willfully ignorant?
Funny you should say that: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-18159752
The US Congress fares worst in the new report, earning a 'D' rating for its failure to enact any meaningful legislation in response to the disaster. The Restore Act would allocate 80% of any fines that BP pays for the spill under the Clean Water Act to restoring the environment and economies of the states in the Gulf of Mexico, but the act has stalled in the House of Representatives. The Obama administration did better, with a B, thanks in part to new drilling regulations, while the oil industry's efforts to improve safety saw it awarded a C+.
