It's a pretty foolish mistake, considering it's in the headline. Doesn't anybody at least look at the columns before they post them? It's not like we are expecting them to proofread and edit the comments section. Ask Dan Quayle how much credibility you can lose with a silly spelling mistake (even if you're just reading someone else's mistake, as he was.)
RE: "Perry doesn't have any National Guard. It's called "National" guard for a reason. He has to have permission from the Feds to use them!" They are under state control until activated for federal service. From the same article you referenced: When National Guard units are not under federal control, the governor is the commander-in-chief of the units of his or her respective state or territory (such as Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands). The President of the United States commands the District of Columbia National Guard, though this command is routinely delegated to the Commanding General of the DC National Guard.[19] States are free to employ their National Guard forces under state control for state purposes and at state expense as provided in the state's constitution and statutes. In doing so, governors, as commanders-in-chief, can directly access and utilize the Guard's federally assigned aircraft, vehicles and other equipment so long as the federal government is reimbursed for the use of fungible equipment and supplies such as fuel, food stocks, etc. This is the authority under which governors activate and deploy National Guard forces in response to natural disasters. It is also the authority under which governors deploy National Guard forces in response to man-made emergencies such as riots and civil unrest, or terrorist attacks.[20]

"McDaniel's partisans don't just have to prove that more than seven-thousand ineligible voters went to the polls, but also that they all voted for Cochran, not McDaniel." False. They just have to find enough to call into question the integrity of the election. When the number of fraudulent votes exceeds the margin (and I have no doubt that it will - they are in the 6,000s already), when the winning side was actively encouraging the fraud, and when the winning side was possibly (probably) guilty of buying votes, then the integrity of the election is compromised.
I believe the speed limits in England are still MPH, and you can still get a pint in the pub. It's the imperial pint, which is 20 imperial ounces, which equals about 18.6 US ounces. All of that tends to make one of the metric advocates' points, but to quote IHaveARightToYourEarnings, "Who gives a @#$%&?"
D) Is the father forbidden to live with the mother? ...If all the above conditions are requirements for this benefit then it makes sense and has the correct associated accountability. Because then the father might actually interact with the child, and might develop a relationship with the child, and might actually marry the mother and take responsibility for the child. Sorry, that's providing incentive for the wrong thing. Young married couples with children often have one or both parents trying to earn degrees while one or both try to work full-time as well. Why aren't they the focus of creative assistance like this. I will add that there should be some market forces here, too. These rooms should be more expensive than a shares room without the cooking facilities in a normal dorm.
I'm pretty sure that's sarcasm. My prediction is in 10 years we could have the same conversation and our society will have changed to the point where I assume you are serious.

He was an unlawful combatant. Therefore, it was not "combat operations", it was murder.

Of course the fact that other countries ban GMOs as well as artificial dyes and other things used in food in the US is no big deal, right? Correct. We have no obligation to follow their foolishness. The fact that girls are getting their periods and developing at a faster rather than ever must be a coincidence, too? Is this true? If so, what is causing it? Why is it bad? Cancer is sky rocketing. Numbers, please. (People living past 80 is skyrocketing, too.) Obesity as well. On the positive side, potato famines are down. It's hard to keep that obesity number up if you can't supersize the fries. Wake up. The food that you eat is incredibly important. Big Ag doesn't want you to know these things. "Big Ag" (whoever that is) doesn't want the government to force them to mentions your junk "science" on their labels? I'm shocked.
How many girls living in the crappy dorms will think "I hate my dorm. I hate my roommate. All I have to do to move into the nice, new dorms with my own room is..." Come on, do you really think that will happen? I was in the military for 24 years. I've seen plenty of "lets get married so we can move out of the dorms" and "Oops, I'm pregnant. I guess I can't go on that deployment." Will people make major life decisions if offered relatively minor incentives? Absolutely.

"Christians are prone to look at the number of people executed in the last 2000 years for accepting Christ and think no one would die for a lie." The real argument is that the apostles were in position to know whether of not they were telling the truth, yet they went to their executions rather than recant (except for Jon, who was banished but no executed.) Rational people do not die for that which they know to be a lie, and there is nothing to indicate they were irrational. It is reasonable to conclude they were reliable witnesses.
