Comment GMO crud (Score 1) 470

Many GMO foodstuffs are modified so that they tolerate far greater levels of pesticides, herbicides, etc. Those GMOs may not be harmful, but the elevated levels of 'cides means elevated levels in our meals That cannot be good.
Many others are modified so the pant produces pesticides, etc themselves. Again, that cannot be good.
Some people have food intolerances or allergies. New chemicals in their food can set off new intolerances and allergies.
Many GMO foodstuffs have been shown to NOT improve the productivity over time of a farm.
Many 'cides have been shown to kill off the organic productivity of the soil, so that the farmer is more and more reliant on chemical soil boosting, to make up for soil impoverishment.
There are far too many downsides to a lot of GMO, and unproven upsides.
It's all a scam.

Comment Queen Hillary (Score 1) 1010

Hillary: Master, royalty, eminence, supremacy, aristocracy, nobility, gentry, upper class, elite, ruler.
Us: Peon, Peasant, Serf, Servant, Slave, drudge, laborer, gopher, unskilled (in the eyes of the elite), hick, rustic, boor, bumpkin, villain, hired hand, hayseed, rube, chattel, vassal, grunt, slogger, victim, menial, thrall, captive.
Bill and Hillary have enough dirt on many of the powerful ruling class to make sure anyone fool enough to challenge her would go down with her in flames.
Anyone not powerful would just disappear (die) if they were seen as an impediment to her money-making schemes.
Rules are made for the ruled, not the ruling class, to keep us out of their way and make sure we pay our tax.
Look at Billary's open marriage. Morals and ethics are for peons, not rulers. Do you think anything else in their behavior differs in any way from that?
And they really do not care that much about getting caught.

Let's face it. Hillary is not just a liar, she is a pathological liar. Just like Bill and Obama.
As far as they are concerned, it is not even lying if they are talking to peons.

Are you fool enough to disagree with any of this? Clearly you have not been paying attention, or even conscious.

A projectile uses 1 dimension + time. A line is a single dimension. Yes, effects which slow it down (air resistance, electro-magnetic fields) operate in two other dimensions outside of the line, but the line cannot "see" them. See Dragon's Egg by Robert L. Forward.
Yes, the line bends, but it cannot "see" that.

Comment Feds have a plan (Score 1) 188

The feds have always had a plan. It's crawl into a bunker and let everyone else die. It's called stick head in sand and hold their breath. It's called name-call the bearer of bad news. It's called BS their way out of the discussion. It's called lie like a big dog. It's called oo oo a new way to scam money to our friends. You actually believe people who paid 43 million dollars for a gas station in Afghanistan? So what's new?

Comment Does not show cause, only shows involvement (Score 1) 26

RTFA does not use the word cause, but it does say "magnetic fields were large enough to be important in the accretion process". Wrong. The chondrules cooled in a strong magnetic field, but that does not mean that they were formed in space. There are just too many assumptions made, and leaps of faith, in the article to believe the scientists involved had impartiality. Bias showing in the cooling state of scientific hypothesizing. What it shows is that the chondrules cooled in a strong magnetic field. End of story. It does show that the chondrules had an interesting life, something the scientists were energized about, since maybe the scientists did not have an interesting life themselves.
