Inadvertent my ass. CJ Roberts is playing the long game. He's playing chess and everyone else is playing checkers, to bastardize a quote from Erick Erickson. This is exactly what he wanted; he keeps the Supremes out of the political arena and galvanizes people to do what they should've done in the first place; repeal the freaking thing. Don't make the Court do the dirty work.

Comment: There's Wi-Fi, and there's wi-fi (Score 1) 300 300

You could do like the timeshare did where we recently stayed at in Ocean City, MD. They boasted free wi-fi. That said, the access point was in the office and was accessible only in the office, on a small bistro-style table (and only when the office was open) or in the indoor pool next door.

Epic fail.

Not according to this blog.

Apparently if you look at NOAA and NASA data published in 1999, the warmest year was 1934. However, if you look at that same data published today, you see VERY different data for the early 1900s. There's an FOIA request to get the raw data, but it isn't moving quickly, apparently.

Your anecdote regarding this other dad's animus against Obama's refusal to sign Eagle Scout congratulatory letters; I'm curious why you paint all right wingers with this brush of ignorance. I am an unabashed believer in conservative values, but I'm also a thinking individual who would have no problem debunking the Eagle Scout thing. People like that give the rest of us a bad name. Frankly, if he had made a similar snarky remark about me I guess I would've been relieved that his politics were different from mine; my politics are born of considered rational thought and his are born of dogma. I will be happy to debate but I won't argue; I can't afford the time.
