    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.

    When Jefferson first took the U.S. to war in the Middle East - the First Barbary War - Congress had, prior to his inauguration, authorized a naval response to the Barbary pirate states, should they declare war on the U.S., which the Bey of Tripoli obliged them with after Jefferson took office.

    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.

    Wuli to gandalftb

    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.

  • Antarctica – where more ice and less ice is proof of climate change

    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).

    AMNESTY is what it is ALL about.

    “The report says that in the last 130 years, sunshine in the Alps has increased by approximately 20%.”

    THAT would seem to be a result of lower precipitation and concurrent lower cloud cover, which can be related to changes in prevailing winds as much as anything else, and may or may not be directly related to “global” temperature. AND less cloud cover and less precipitation WOULD translate to some shrinkage of Austrian Alpine glaciers - again, irrespective of “global” temperatures.

    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.

    we should not be arming further the Syrian rebels

    we need Assad and the rebels to admit to a stalemate, sign a truce, keep it, and move on to political talks

    we should only use our air forces in Syria and only against ISIS

    by combating ISIS, whom both the “Syrian opposition” and Assad have been fighting, our neutrality will give us some leverage to get them to admit they have a military stalemate

    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

    The present state of Syria & Lebanon is the consequence of, and the worst consequences ever, of a meddling western & Sunni-Middle East regime change agenda, creating even more of a fertile field for extremists than the failed regime change agenda that helped deliver the Taliban into power in Afghanistan in the 1980s.

    Prior to the regime change agenda against Assad, we had regional security issues with Syria, BUT the security situation was fairly stable and containable; & there had not been any major Syria-Israel confrontations in a long time; & the Sunni-Shia sectarian strife in Iraq had not spread to Syria.

    Israel had already taken out Assad’s nuclear ambition and Assad’s forces are no match for the very experienced and weapons-superior Israeli forces.

    So who was after Assad? Who was he on the outs with? The Saudis and some of the shieks of he Gulf States. Why? Religiously he is an apostate to devout Sunnis. In areas of government Assad runs a secular regime, unlike the Saudis and the Gulf States, not even allowing Islam to be the “state religion” and allowing that a Syrian president does not have to be a Muslim. In the region, Assad made friends with the fundamentalist Shia theocrats of Iran instead of the radical fundamentalist Wahabi Sunni influenced heads of Saudi Arabia. Why? Why not? With the “Arab” and Sunni-dominant regimes NOT liking him much, which regional power was he going to make friends of. Is Assad a “good guy”? NO, surely not. But THAT is not why our so-called friends were involved in the regime change agenda against him.

    “moderates” are just mugwumps

    mugwumps are people who want to sit with their mugs on one side of the fence/an issue and their wumps on the other

    they go about complaining about everyone else being “too partisan” when what they do is create an environment of greater “partisanship” by preventing solid majorities on one set of principles or another, of which the “moderates” have none, beyond “can’t we all just get along”
