This is a pretty absurd set of lies.

1. The Clintons aren't receiving funds from the Clinton Foundation.>br> 2. The money trail out of the Clinton Foundation is very clear, irrespective of the trail in.

Do you just make up whatever you feel like, or do you get this from someone else having made it up?

"You miss the point about attraction to another race or gender. Lack of physical attraction because that individual just doesn't ring your bell, okay, but when it crosses into revision about homosexuality or interracial relationships or whatever then it's a problem."

Who is it a problem for?

I'm guessing you didn't actually read the article, where Woody says, "On Saturday morning, I woke up to a notice that Windows 10 couldn't be installed (see screenshot), failing with an error 80007000E-2000C. Of course, I hit the roof. I hadn't given Microsoft permission to install Windows 10. I'd even gone so far as to uncheck the update."

Windows ran the installation procedure when it had been explicitly unchecked.

If you 're basing your response on the fact that something went wrong during the update, you're deliberately obfuscating.

I think you're missing the point. One of the prime concepts involved here is that your information is safe on your phone. If Apple is compelled to develop this tool and hand over the results (not the tool, I understand that), then your information on your phone is not safe; Apple can be compelled to do this in any situation.

I hope this does not happen.

"From now on, she should be medically banned from driving, until cured. But at the time, not knowing she had any risk of being drunk, she didn't have a drink and then drive. She didn't knowingly drive drunk."

From the article, it appears that while she unknowingly had alcohol in her system, it didn't affect her the way alcohol that is imbibed does. Specifically, she exhibited no symptoms.

If that is the case, she was not driving under the influence of alcohol, knowingly or not.

"video

Here is the guy who WROTE the ACA saying the the intent was that states provide exchanges or citizens of the state do not get tax credits. Yep, that was the INTENT and the WORDING from the guy who actually wrote the thing.

So you basically came here and lied to make your point, just like every single ACA supporter has to do."



From the video: "In the law it says that if the states don't provide them, the federal backstop will."

Do you have the first clue?

I think not. Your proposition presupposes that these Republicans know this sort of thing is harmful. I do not get that message from what I read and hear from them.

I think they want these kind of bills to pass, while also realizing that if it doesn't, they will garner votes for trying.

"Now the trumpet summons us again - not as a call to arms, though arms we need; not as a call to battle, though embattled we are; but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, 'rejoicing in hope patient in tribulation', a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease and war itself." -- John F.

That's nonsense. You don't have to be stupid to be what we refer to in American politics as a "conservative".

But you have to admit that it damn sure helps.

From the London Mirror:

But before you put down your midnight stilton, it's important to realise the site, TylerVigen.com, was originally created as a bit of fun and doesn't claim the statistics are anything other than coincidence.

Although it has become a huge hit with people in the science community, as the trends are there in black and white for all to see.

Tyler said: "I created this website as a fun way to look at correlations and to think about data. Empirical research is interesting, and I love to wonder about how variables work together.

"The charts on this site aren't meant to imply causation nor are they meant to create a distrust for research or even correlative data. Rather, I hope this projects gets people interested in statistics and research.

"I'm not a math or statistics major (and there are better ways to calculate correlation than I do here), but I do have a love for science and discovery and that's all anyone should need."

Hmmm.

Not exactly; that's what one would believe, of course. But I read of a study within the last year in the NYT which showed that the placebo effect can be triggered, and measurably so, even when the partaker is told that it's a placebo.

Seems counter-intuitive, but that's what the study showed.
