What John Walsh Plagiarism Fiasco?

Bad timing. When Walsh is first identified as the focus of the column (third paragraph), there is no mention of his political party. "Democrats" appears in the sixth column.
Right. Unless an ordinary citizen has accomplished more than the Democrat front runner for President, they can't point out her history of failures.
Whatever happened to "Government, Keep your hands off my body?"

The 'Fairness' Fraud

There is a lot of talk about Income Inequality, but no one is addressing the problem of Output Inequality. Some Americans aren’t producing as many valuable goods or providing enough valuable services as others. This is unfair to those producing more than their fair share. Plus it prevents our economy from recovering as fast as it could/should. This can be fixed by only paying people a value equal to that which they produce or provide. To be fair, that value is determined by what someone else is willing to pay or trade for the good or service. If the offer to pay or trade for the good or service is acceptable to the producer/provider, then a voluntarily transaction occurs. In reality, there is no such thing as Income Inequality in a free market. Income is what is earned by providing another a good or service that has value. Value is determined by voluntary transactions between the buyer and seller. To facilitate the transaction, currency is used as a measurement of value. A dollar earned by a low income earner is equal to a dollar earned by a high income earner.
If Government has to "keep their hands of my body" with regard to abortion, how is Obamacare legal? Not only does Government dictate coverage for medical care, it mandates we pay for it.

Michael, when are you going to realize your strategy to pick a candidate that appeals to moderates is a loser? We need to pick a candidate that espouses conservative ideals with confidence and both draws moderates to the right, and excites existing conservatives to show up on Election Day.
I have been looking for an answer to this. If you know, please advise... Who told the White House on Sept 11 and 12, that a protest about a movie that had been on You Tube for over a year, got out of hand and led to the 7 hour attack on the Libyan Embassies? The State Department says they never did. Likewise with the CIA, NSA. Plus, direct communications from the Embassy employees. The White House keeps saying it was given bad/wrong information but who are they saying provided the video protest version?

Shutting the Embassy's is problematic as they are used in part as safe haven's for covert intel operations. However, we must be allowed to protect our people if the local government is unable/unwilling to do so. We need a safe place to keep eyes and ears on the radicals.
I'm for continued observation of the climate and taking no extreme measures until we are 100% certain man made carbon emissions cause global warming and that it is a bad thing for mankind to increase the overall average temperature of the planet. Insurance companies are extremely excited about selling new products to deal with the perceived threat of harm that global warming can cause. They don't have any expertise in the arena of climatology.
Wouldn't Hansen's conclusion be limited to "proof" that global warming is occurring? It would seem the use of statistics wouldn't be able to determine causation e.g. man made carbon emissions vs. natural cyclical changes.
