Comment Re:Use a liberal definition of planet (Score 3, Interesting) 150

I actually really like this idea:
Define a Star as a body that has achieved a nuclear fusion reaction.
Define a Planet as a body that has enough mass to be spherical that orbits a star.
Define a Planetoid as a body that has enough mass to be spherical that does not orbit a star.
Define a Moon as a body that has enough mass to be spherical that orbits a planet.
Define an Asteroid as a body that does not have enough mass to be spherical that orbits a star.
Define a Natural Satellite (here's to you, potato shaped Phobos) as a body that does not have enough mass to be spherical that orbits a planet. Maybe call it a Moonoid?

Define Pluto and Charon as a binary planet; since they appear to orbit each other (and binary stars are already defined).
If this means Sedna and a few other bodies become planets -- fine. But at least the definitions are easy.

The ACLU isn't liberal.

BAAAAAAAAA hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Oh... man... comedy gold right there.

Oh. You weren't kidding. You were serious about that? Oh right, you're an idiot.

For 8 years any opposition to anything Obama wanted was categorically dismissed as racist by liberals.

Are we pretending that didn't happen?

Oh, right. Sorry. Forgot who posted for a moment. The above comment is over your head. I need to reach out to you at your intellectual level, not mine.

Hey. Kate Upton shore is purty, isn't she?

Typical Captain Splendid "I'll say something nonsensical but I'll make it vague so that I appear to have an IQ larger than 60" comment.

No go back and pretend that the unwashed left didn't call people who didn't support Obama racist. Whatever your fragile little mind needs to sleep at night.

Red was right -- you really are a low calorie / low intelligence troll substitute.

Journal Journal: ACLU T-Shirts... 11

The ACLU is selling T-Shirts with their logo that says "Dissent is Patriotic".

That's adorable.

I'm making fun of you for mischaracterizing Democrat anger. It has nothing to do with with his earlier confirmation.

I have three kids; I understand what it looks like when a toddler throws a temper tantrum.
As a result, I'm well aware of the Democrat anger. It's a temper tantrum worthy of the most bratty toddler or large leftoids....

And it's all very entertaining; I'm enjoying watching the Democrats embarrass themselves.

Are you forgetting or ignoring the fact that Congress has held up a Lame Duck's Supreme Court pick before? It's not like this has never happened before.

Are you forgetting that while George W Bush was President, Chuck Schumer said this when Bush had 19 months to go?

“We should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court, except in extraordinary circumstances,” Schumer said in a speech to the liberal American Constitution Society. “They must prove by actions, not words, that they are in the mainstream rather than we have to prove that they are not.”

So. Are you being dishonest or stupid?

Journal Journal: Gorsuch 6

When Gorsuch was confirmed to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, he was done so unanimously.


So take the perpetually outraged, professional (ie, paid by Soros) Left's vitriol against him with a grain of salt.

I voted for Ted Cruz in the primary, but if this is how Trump plans to govern I'm really going to start liking the guy.

Directing Executive Agencies to start cutting regulations via Executive Order?

EXCELLENT. This is how executive orders should be used; telling executive branch agencies to get their act together.

Hiring Freeze on Bureaucrats?


Comment Re:It's the media's fault (Score 1) 22

I'm just glad that it appears people are starting to wake up and realize it. Part of it is the rise of the internet and alternative sources like Breitbart.

...And the fact that so much of the media's lies recently are being proven as such -- Michael Brown's "Hands Up Don't Shoot" was a complete lie, the Orlando shooter used an AR-15 was a complete lie (it was a SigSauer carbine, and NOT an AR-15)...

Now look at how the media is largely ignoring the fact that the Ft. Lauderdale airport shooter converted to Islam...

I think the tide is finally turning against these left wing propagandists...

Journal Journal: "Don't be rude. YOU ARE FAKE NEWS" 22

I honestly don't think I'll get tired of watching President Trump smack the MSM over the next 8 years.

And "fake news" has been a huge problem ever since the days of Dan Rather's "fake, but accurate" George W. Bush AWOL fake memo.
