How does one get to be a paid troll? I think I could blame Bush for everything that has gone wrong with the Obama presidency and/or post off-topic rants as well as anyone. And the extra money would come in handy.

Indeed. The only difference between fascism and communism, as economic systems, is with ownership. In communism the means of production are owned by the state. While in fascism, the ownership remains in private hands. In both cases however, the control remains strictly in government hands. The example of long term fascism is post-renaissance England where the government controlled economic activity through the use of Royal Charters.

Face it dc...you were lied to. You didn't "pay into" SS & Medicare...you just paid additional income taxes called SS & Medicare. The funds you paid went into the General Fund just like any other taxes and were frittered away with all the rest. To paraphrase Otter from "Animal House": "...you can't spend your whole life worrying about your mistakes! You f***ed up... you trusted your government!"
Sorry mom, but most PhDs actually do work in industry...at least those of us with degrees in math, engineering, or the physical sciences (MES degrees). But this is true for college programs in general. With the exception of MES or business programs, the majority of college degree programs are setup with the assumptions that the participants will one day work for the government.

"...things started falling apart just before the 'Lil' Wanna be General' left office." Yep, things started falling apart in January of 2007. Just as soon as the Democrats took control of congress.

Why should MJ comment on your premise when you did not comment on the substance of Ransom's article? All MJ did was follow your lead by attacking the messenger rather than the message.

The Heroism of Wendy Davis

Unless Greg Abbott pulls a Clayton Williams, Davis doesn't have a prayer in the general election. Actually, this is the only reason that she is the front runner in the Democratic race...no one competent is willing to run a race they know they are going to lose.
John, Actually RockinRick is correct in his comparison in that both climate science and evolution are based upon observation only. In neither case can the scientist in question actually perform controlled experiments to prove/disprove the underlying bases of their theory; namely AGW and natural selection. While this doesn't disprove either theory, it does make them both very hard to prove. Which is why you never hear biologists say "the debate is over" on evolution.
And faster!
