    The colleges need to get 100% OUT of any sanctions at all regarding sex, beyond one simple “rule” - what is illegal with regard to sexual activity under civil and criminal law locally is behavior - upon notification of an accusation it has occurred - that will be turned over to the law authorities locally & for them to deal with; and only if any such matter results in a conviction under such laws, the college will take appropriate academic sanctions against the convicted person. Beyond that the rest is politics, kangaroo courts, interference in Liberty, and treating academia as a “sovereign” land under no nation’s laws, but its own.

  • The Radical Environmental Agenda Should Be Rejected, even if Global Warming Is Real

    Wuli to Kaslin

    A little cost benefit analysis, as with the following:

    According to the science & scientific assumptions behind & within the ICCP models, the U.S. & the other major economies could drastically reduce “man made” CO2 output in the next 20-50 years and it will not likely alter any “warming”, or expected warming in the climate for 500 years or more. That is because of the atmospheric lifetime of the extra CO2. Drastic CO2 production now, with what is already accumulated and accumulating & given the atmospheric lifetime of CO2, will not extremely alter the atmospheric PPM of CO2 for possibly another 500 years.

    IF that assumption is correct, then where will money be best spent today, taxing the hell out of carbon and drastically raising energy costs which will drastically raise all costs (then where will “natural disaster” money come from), or in technologies and policies to adjust for and mitigate any climate change affects that actually (as opposed to theoretically) occurs.

    On the other hand, if the long atmospheric lifetime assumption is incorrect (other scientists say it is only 5 or so years), then “drastic” reductions in CO2 production or not the CO2 build up is not going to reach the extremes projected by the ICCP (that REQUIRES the super long expected atmospheric life of CO2).

    I believe the best, and best spent course is gradual changes in energy uses and sources, based on energy applications that are most efficient economically for the technology available at any time. Where some sources are not yes most economical, any government $$$ in their regard belongs in basic scientific research, not demanding their use before their time. Meanwhile humans will do best what humans have always done - adjust to climate where ever we are, and humans are better equipped, scientifically and technologically, for doing that than humans have ever been before.

    The Soviet Union did not create the aftermath of its departure nor did they create who the U.S. teamed up with to help achieve it; in fact the U.S. did not really care much about what was going to happen after the Soviets left, we just wanted to create a “Vietnam” for them - as Carter’s Zbigniew Brzezinski said at the start.

    The U.S. chose to partner with the Islamist Saudis and Pakistanis, funding the Mujahaddeen and Al Queda and spawning the creation of the Taliban. That we did all on our own.

    AGT is the acronym for his show, America’s Got Talent.

    The live segments with a live audience had been produced at a large modern showplace - the New Jersey Performing Arts Center - at the north end of downtown Newark, New Jersey; it was not terribly expensive and Newark airport was hugely closer to it than is any airport to any theater venue in Manhattan; which was great for guests and contestants coming, from other parts of the country.

    New York state wrote special - applies only to AGT - legislation, for a one-of-a-kind big tax credit for AGT - if AGT would move it’s live shows to Radio City Music Hall. Of course that tax credit was needed to offset the higher costs of producing the show there, otherwise Howard would have had a hard time its producers to go along.

    U.S. presidents and Congress should use similar construction of language in legislation that acknowledges that Islamic jihad terrorists HAVE declared THEY are at war with us - thus, Congress need only require the POTUS to ask and obtain a vote that, with regard to any such group, that that group has opened the state of war with us, and the president can respond as Congress further provides the means for.

    The Obama plan, which is a plan heartily backed by the GOP’s neocons and media outlets like the WSJ oped page editors, is calling for air strikes against ISIS inside Syria yes but (a) also seeks to somehow not do that to help the Syrian people generally, especially not when and where Assad may be the beneficiary [which, I think, managing our attacks on ISIS that way is dumb) and (b) upping support for the “Syrian opposition”, which is by all reports no longer dominated by “moderates” but now and since 2012 dominated by the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood. See WaPo May 2012.

    The result from not limiting our activities inside Syria to ONLY trying to degrade ISIS, & with more intervention on our part on behalf of the “Syrian opposition”, will result in an expansion of the “Syrian” internal conflict to fully engage and engulf Lebanon and see expanded Russian, Iranian and Hezbolla support for Assad. The result will be a more extensive and extended conflict around Syria and more opportunity for ISIS in the more extensively fracturing region of Syria and Lebanon.

    The answer? ONLY go after ISIS in Syria and do not up the ante of support for the “Syrian opposition” but instead work for military stalemate, and Assad and the opposition’s admission that stalemate will be all they’ll likely get, to be followed by getting them into a truce and political talks. That - the end point - is where some general’s on Assad’s staff might need to be recruited to that endeavor.

    I would suspect that the current existing high rate of genetic-based disorders among Ashkenazi Jews derives of course from such disorders’ presence in the very small “founding group” of a mere 350 people, but also due to a large amount of inbreeding (not breeding extensively outside the group) that has continued among them.

    If there is one thing that human survival has appreciated it is genetic diversity, which is - genetic diversity - what many life’s species have succeeded with, for genetic diversity provides a greater chance of adapting to fringe conditions and/or new conditions.

    The Libertarian proposal that they claim would allow for reducing the payroll tax needs some P.R. retooling.

    They plan to LOWER FICA income dedicated to Social Security & fund that by eliminating and/or lowering certain tax deductions, but the increased revenue from the changes in tax deductions will do nothing for Social Security unless the law says it must.

    UNLESS the increased revenue from the changes in tax deductions is dedicated under law to paying off IOUs the general treasury gave to Social Security, the plan will not work, nor can it be sold to the people. Without that dedicated application under law, the Social Security funds will be in even worse shape (getting less FICA revenue and not compensated for that loss) and the additional general revenue will just be spent on general expenditures.

    Wuli to Ernest_at_the_Beach

    calving of glaciers at the nexus of land and sea GOES ALONG WITH additional snow on the land

    additional snow on the land bound portion of glaciers adds to the overall weight of the ice build up, and it is weight from top to bottom that converts the viscosity of ice at the very bottom to something more like a liquid at below freezing, and that bottom liquid-like layer, with the weight of all the ice pressing down from above, and gravity, moves the ice of the glacier on the land slowly towards the shore where it begins to calve off

    it seems probable that if you are having a period of snow fall, during a set period of time, that is greater than usual for such a period of time, you might also get more calving of the glacier during that time as well, due to dynamics of the natural course of glaciers - from snow & ice pack adding to the glacier, to the glacier itself becoming part of the mechanism that causes the glacier to calve off parts of it

    I too would have voted no.

    Attack ISIS? YES. Attack ISIS inside Syria? Yes. Continue to intervene between Assad and what is essentially a Sunni Islamist putsch against him? No.

    What we need between Assad and the putsch against him is a military stalemate, a convincing stalemate that is so convincing that both Assad and the FSA understand that is all they can get. Then we can get a truce and then we can get political talks between them.

    If we up the support to the “Syrian opposition” it is certain that (a) Iran, Russia & Hezbolla will up their support to Assad, and (b) Lebanon will be engulfed with spillover from Syria between Sunni & Shia, and (c) in addition to becoming a part of the internal struggle in Syria, Lebanon will become an additional venue for ISIS as well. NONE of those things are in the U.S. interest.

    BUT, if we limit our actions inside Syria to only attacking ISIS, and that’s all we are doing, then we become less on one side or the other between Assad and the “Syrian opposition” and we will gain some leverage in getting them to come to a truce. That truce and what we do alone against ISIS only in Syria is what is in the U.S. best interest.

    The lefties are wrong, in every direction, on the immigration bill.

    Yes, majorities in the GOP want beefed up border security & want a bill that has that.

    However, with that enacted in some other bill, majorities in the GOP still want other immigration reforms as well; they just don’t want amnesty.

    The real problem for the Dims is not that the GOP will abandon “immigration reform” if they get better border security on its own; and their argument is false on that score.

    The real concern for the Dims is that with an immigration reform bill that does not need to have better security tied to it, to get GOP support, THAT kind of immigration reform bill will not be able to have amnesty in it, because the treasonous GOP-e will not have trade our security for amnesty - not for “immigration reform”, but amnesty (which the GOP-e WILL do).

    The “moderate” nature of the CORE of the “Syrian opposition” is a myth.

    Yes their are “moderates” in the coalition, just as there were moderates in the coalition that Khomeini formed against the Shah of Iran and in the coalition in the “Arab Spring” that demanded a new government in Egypt.

    At the core and in the majority are not “moderates” but the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood, whose HQ has always been the city of Homs and that is why the battles over that city were so heavy and so strategic.

    The “moderates” are useful fronts for western consumption.

    Once “victory” is achieved they will be gradually swept aside, as they were in Iran and as Morsi did in Egypt.

    Assad is no saint by any means.

    But OUR regime change agenda against Assad has been attached to a local Sunni Islamist putsch against Assad, funded and supported by the most fundamentalist Islamist countries among our so-called “friends” in the Middle East.

    We should ONLY be going after ISIS in Syria, and that’s it.

    If we do, we might be able to see a military stalemate between Assad and the “Syrian opposition” and by ONLY attacking ISIS, we might gain some leverage at convincing Assad and the “Syrian opposition” to sign a truce, keep a truce and plan on political talks about Syria’s future. If we don’t keep our actions in Syria held to ONLY attacking ISIS, Russia, Iran and Hezbolla will all up their aid to Assad and the war in Syria will totally engage and engulf all of Lebanon as well. The conflict will widen, and that will make for even more dysfunction in Syria and Lebanon and more opportunities for ISIS and Al Queda.

    if we up the support to the “Syrian opposition” (heavily loaded with members of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood backed by Turkey), we will see Assad ask for a receive greater support from Putin, Iran and Hezbolla, and the “Syrian” conflict will become totally Syria-Lebanon wide

    we do not need expansion of the conflict in Syria

    we do not need total victory for either side

    we need a stalemate, end of hostilities, truce, and political talks

    if WE focus ONLY in Syria on ISIS, we can help the parties in Syria reach that point

    if we do more,, favoring more the rebels, the conflict will get wider and worse, and because we will not put boots on the ground and own the results of removing Assad, the “coalition” that includes some “moderates” will, if they have a “victory” (1) become dominated by Syrian Sunni Islamists and (2) we will be sorry we ever backed them

    I think the Dim congressman is only half right.

    I think if we hit ISIS with our air power, in Iraq and inside Syria (but ONLY ISIS in Syria), we have a good chance of making a stalemate between Assad and the Syrian opposition more likely and more convincing to the Syrian opposition and Assad, and then have a chance of getting them first to a truce, then political steps from there.

    This is nothing new.

    The same sort of reversal in the media took place concerning Billary vs GWBush.

    In the print media during Clinton’s two admins, if the news was positive the heading or subheading referred to Clinton by name, but if the news was negative, the heading or subheading referred to “Defense Department” or “DOD”, “State Department” or “State”, “EPA”, ect., or the appropriate cabinet secretary. During GWBush’s two terms those conditions were reversed - negatives received GWBush by name, positives most often did not. This sort of thing is never unintentional.

    Hall had no purpose of desire to harm anyone. He merely went after the facts and if someone was harmed by the facts then it was those facts that condemned them, not Hall.

    “Results” of Halls actions - that certain regents and politicians could be shown, by the facts, to be abusing their power with college admissions - is not a matter of intent, or desire of Hall, but merely the facts.

    When the facts expose us for our faults, the fault does not lie with the messenger who delivers the facts, but ourselves.

    The Texas DA Lehmberg is a political hack and an idiot.
