  • In 6 Months Since Budget Deal: Debt Up More Than $1 Trillion

    Oh, dear, I think debt growth has reached an exponential phase.

    For me, it was simply a matter of getting to know him. He has made me realize that he is first and foremost a lawyer, and he seeks wins the way lawyers do—through clever manipulation of language rather than on any factual basis.

    It does not matter that his “win” in CO was technically by the rules: it looked bad and it reinforced my opinion that lawyers do not care about the truth as much as being clever when it comes to winning. Not everything that is technically legal is right or moral. The fact that he used that “win” to paint Trump supporters as stupid and incompetent only made it worse.

    I do not, and never have, gratuitously insulted someone just because I happen to support someone else—and I do not think that most of the Trump supporters here have done that to Cruz. I do, however, point out exactly what I see the issues are.

    Cruz behaves the way I have seen scammers behave before—for instance, with his slogan “TrusTED.” If a person can’t convince me to trust him without telling me over and over, then he probably is NOT trustworthy.

    The bottom line is, we do not need another lawyer president. There is no way to convince me that another lawyer is going to be any different than the lawyers we’ve already had as president. We need someone else... someone with executive experience.

  • Why Zimbardo’s Prison Experiment Isn’t in My Textbook

    exDemMom to beaversmom

    I’ve seen this “experiment” discussed elsewhere, often by writers who are completely convinced that the exercise actually revealed something about human nature.

    My intuition insists that this “study” is bogus, for a number of reasons. I am glad to see some of the reasons spelled out as to why this is so.

    A difficulty with psychological behavioral research is that it is hard to do a proper study with adequate controls. As a result, many studies that are published are not reproducible. Add to that the fact that people exhibit a range of behaviors in various circumstances—making it impossible to say that any specific behavior is characteristic for a specific situation.

    Psychological research *can* give valid results, but only if the study is extremely carefully designed.

    Sure, the education system is lousy in Guatemala. The solution is not to allow illegals from Guatemala to squat in the US, but to work to improve access to education in Guatemala.

    I suggest we not only round up all the illegal alien Guatemalans, but also the liberals whining that we should pay to educate illegals and send them all to Guatemala. The liberals can go to poor rural areas and build schools and teach. This way, everyone wins—Guatemalans can get a better education and there are fewer illegal aliens and liberals in the US.

    The issue is not whether anyone thinks that men belong in women’s bathrooms, but whether this is an issue that should be a focus of the president.

    No law is going to make women suddenly comfortable with men entering their bathrooms, and they will make it very clear that men are not welcome there, or in their locker rooms. This whole issue is nothing more than a red herring cooked up by liberals who are constantly looking for some issue to use as “proof” that conservatives are hateful and intolerant. Before liberals dreamed up this idea, did anyone ever even consider whether there are laws specifically to keep men out of women’s restrooms? I know it never crossed my mind! And I will leave a bathroom if I see a man there.

    but now I realize, Cruz isn't crazy, he's just shallow-- about an inch deep-- this is all he's got.

    He's in way over his head. Once upon a time, I thought he might be a competitive contender for president--but the more I learn about him, the less I can support him. He can't give any reason to vote for him, all he can do is complain about Trump. Meanwhile, Trump shows by his quick thinking and deft handling of the press that he is uniquely suited for the job.

    I think I first became aware of Trump's intellect when he gave out Lindsey Graham's (I think) cell phone number, and among people whining about that, someone thought to give out Trump's cell phone number to get even with him. Instead of whining and so forth, Trump recorded a message thanking people for their interest in his campaign and directing them to his website. It was brilliant!

    Seriously, tabloid pablum? I am supposed to decide a vote on one of the most important offices in the United States based on tabloid rumormongering from a source that isn’t even as credible as the National Enquirer?

    You have to do better than that. You have to produce actual evidence—like maybe testimony or statements taken from Epstein’s trial—that Donald Trump not only knew, but was complicit in Epstein’s criminal activity. None of that stuff from “gawker” shows that. No one becomes a criminal just because they know someone who turns out to be a criminal. Plus, you did not answer any of my questions and explain exactly how Trump supposedly is not conservative.

    Meanwhile, by looking at the candidates’ qualifications and comparing them to the “job description” for president as found in the Constitution, Trump not only looks like the best man for the job, but like our best bet for starting to undo the damage that decades of liberal lawyer presidents and congressmen have done to the country. Anyone else will just continue the destruction. I have grandkids to worry about—what kind of country will they have to face as young adults?

    Thank you for your emotional anti-Trump diatribe.

    Now, please use factual terms that can be verified from reliable sources to answer the following:

    1) I see a conservative as someone who supports smaller government, greater personal freedom and responsibility, economic opportunity and growth, secure borders, and US sovereignty (among other things). In which of these areas is Trump not conservative, and in what way does he differ from the conservative position? Specifically, which of the policies that Trump has advocated during his campaign are not conservative?

    2) Conversely, a liberal is someone who wants absolute power at the top, who has no belief in people’s ability to make their own decisions, who wants to use the force of government to micromanage every aspect of people’s lives, including the food they eat, how they educate their children, the cars they drive, and where they live. When and how has Trump advocated for this kind of totalitarian leftist government? Which specific policies on Trump’s platform further the leftist agenda as briefly described here?

    3) Do you have any evidence that Trump was more than an acquaintance of Jeffrey Epstein, and, furthermore, that he aided and abetted Epstein’s crimes? For that matter, what evidence do you have that Trump was aware of Epstein’s crimes at the time they were committed? Furthermore, how does this tie into Trump’s conservative credentials or lack thereof?

    I think Beck was originally a good man with a vision.

    However, some people are very sensitive to the pressure of public attention. It breaks them; they become parodies of their former selves. There is no shortage of broken people in show business: Rosie O’Donnell, Justin Bieber, Britney Spears, etc. Adults are usually more resistant to the toxic effects of publicity, but they break, as well.

    I think Beck just plain broke.

    Global warming is a theory which is treated like a fact, by some, a faith by others and a theory by others.

    Anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is *not* a theory. A scientific theory is a conceptual framework that is developed to unify and explain the totality of observations made regarding a natural phenomenon.

    By definition, AGW is not a theory. It is, rather, a hypothesis. A hypothesis is a supposition made on the basis of an observation or group of observations, and it is informed by theory. In this case, AGW is a hypothesis formulated on the facts that 1) carbon dioxide has a broad absorbance/emittance band within the infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum (in other words, it fluoresces in the infrared); 2) that heat is a result of infrared radiation; and 3) that human industrial processes are reintroducing carbon dioxide into the air that has been sequestered underground for thousands or millions of years.

    A hypothesis is testable; scientific experiments are designed around devising a test that either supports the hypothesis, or shows that the hypothesis is incorrect (or that the null hypothesis is correct). If a hypothesis is not supported by the experimental evidence, then the assumptions used to formulate the hypothesis should be revised.

    In the case of AGW, although experimental observations have not really supported the hypothesis, the assumptions underlying the hypothesis have not been appropriately revised.

    My trust in any federal agency telling the truth about this is zero. Especially the EPA.

    The pertinent point is not that a federal agency made a decision, but that they used relevant science to inform the decision.

    The EPA certainly deserves every word of criticism it gets when it makes and enforces policies based on political narratives. However, it should be supported when it makes decisions based on genuine science.

    Investigating cancer clusters just because they are clusters is a waste of taxpayer money (such investigations can cost millions). Anyone familiar with statistics knows that random distribution causes clusters and bare patches; random is not an even dispersal.

    It doesn’t matter who wrote the words on a white board—they are just words and do not constitute a crime. Any sensible person (that is, someone who is not looking for a cause célèbre) could have easily erased the whiteboard without making a big fuss.

    My husband and I were listening to the radio Friday, and whoever was talking had a long list of these fake “hate crimes.” In some cases, people said that they were going to bomb and shoot black people—although threatening people *is* a crime, none of the threateners were charged since the investigations immediately revealed them to be black.

    Writing on a white board is not a crime, even if the writing is full of racist blather. Making threats against people is a crime, and should be treated as such regardless of the race of the person making the threats.

    Samples taken during the study show everything from the deadly radioactive isotope, tritium, to elevated levels of salt, ammonia, and phosphorous.

    Tritium is a very low-energy emitter. Maybe in extremely high doses, it would be a problem, but trace amounts are hardly a worry. Tritium is the least worrisome radioisotope.

    ...however, according to an assessment by the New York Department of State as part of its Coastal Zone Management Assessment, contains a variety of radioactive elements such as strontium-90, cesium-137, cobalt-60, and nickel-63, and isn’t limited to tritium contamination.

    Okay, some of those are very high energy emitters, and can do quite a bit of physical damage, with death occurring at high levels of exposure. However, at low exposures, they are not a problem. And the blog does not say how much of each radioisotope was found; my guess is that only trace amounts, barely above the level of detection, were found. (Otherwise, they would cordon off the area until it could be cleaned up.)

    Unexpected increases were detected in 19 out of 20 major types of cancer. Thyroid cancer registered the biggest increase, going from 13 percent below the national average to 51 percent above.

    The problem with trying to say anything definitive based on "cancer clusters" is that, through random distribution alone, clusters happen. I read a few years ago that some agency (EPA, maybe) decided to no longer conduct investigations upon finding a disease cluster, since every investigation done to date had found the cluster due to random variability.

    In any case, tritium does not cause thyroid cancer. Strontium-90 can affect the thyroid, as can any radioactive form of iodine. Leukemia is a common cancer that develops after radiation exposure, since high doses of radiation damage and kill the rapidly growing cells in the bone marrow, which produce blood.

    exDemMom to nickcarraway

    Many times, a correlation reflects some other factor that both parameters being measured have in common.

    In this case, there is spraying to stop an encephalitis virus infected mosquito, and there seem to be increased rates of autism. It could be a statistical artifact, or it could be that catching encephalitis from a mosquito while pregnant increases the risk of autism. And the spraying is done in those areas where there is encephalitis, hence the statistical correlation.

    A virus that causes encephalitis actually infects brain cells. When a virus infects cells, it changes them—they no longer function according to their original purpose. If those cells are brain cells, then they are destroyed. Such destruction during early development certainly could affect brain function for the rest of the person’s life.

    Transgenders in girls restrooms?

    Do you know that this entire issue was fabricated?

    Before the left decided to obsess on this nonsense that men can be women merely by saying so, and that these men should be legally allowed to use women's restrooms, society had decided in very clear fashion that men are not welcome in women's restrooms, period. And that has not changed, regardless of some stupid liberals deciding to make laws to specifically allow men into women's restrooms. (Where there laws against it? I have no idea, actually.) Do these new laws make women suddenly accept men in their restrooms, and make men feel comfortable going into women's restrooms? No. Regardless of leftist posturing, the culture has not changed in that regard.

    This whole issue was fabricated so that leftists would have another reason to complain about supposed conservative intolerance and bigotry. Trump is smart enough to see through it. That's why his reaction, when asked about it, was to wonder why is this even an issue?

    Don't judge Trump as being liberal just because he refused to fall for a liberal trap the way too many conservatives do. Conservatives always lose by falling for liberal traps; Trump is not a loser.

    If you can't tell the difference between a communist like Hillery or Obama and a capitalist like Trump then you might need to see your doctor about that.

    I'm not the one calling Trump a "progressive."

    I know what the various terms mean, quite well. I've listened to more than my fair share of communist and progressive propaganda. Once you account for the cultural differences between the USSR and the US, the difference between the two becomes a matter of terminology, not substance.

    Awesome! Now, if a few other former candidates would only do the same.

    At this point, Cruz is just a spoiler. He might as well just announce that he’s pushing for Hillary.

    Remember, the progressive movement started in the republican party.

    No. "Progressive" is, and always has been, a synonym for "communist." To my knowledge, the Republican party has never promoted any communist agenda.

    Democrats sometimes became Progressives and went back to the Democrat party. Communists would use the Progressive party as a means to conceal their true ideology. While there were Republicans who went to the Progressive party, they were far leftists who probably did not belong to the Republican party.

    I do not know how you come to the belief that Donald Trump is either a progressive or a liberal. No one can do what Trump did by being liberal or worse. When liberals get rich, it is usually by some means other than building a business.
