Ah, the Humanist arrogance comes through. "Because they're nuclear physicists?" Here's what the Creator of the universe has to say about your worship of nuclear physicists (and philosophers, psychiatrists, scientists, paleontologists, astronomers, physicists, media moguls, 'entertainment industry', politicians, academics, etc.): "Not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty." You mock the humble as "someone to make fun of," and then say that those who admire them have sad lives? It seems that you are the poisoned, distorted, malevolent one; the one to be pitied.
The key word in your question being "think". Tens of millions of Americans thought they were watching just another version of "American Idol" during the '08 campaign, and they voted for the best voice, the best stage presence, the one who made them FEEL all warm and fuzzy. They voted for the one who made the best promises; the one who offered everything for no cost; the one who stood in front of the Greek Temple columns and pretended to BE the Messiah. But Americans don't really think anymore. They are brain dead from lifetimes of commercial bombardment from the Big Screens, and their attention span stretches to the 10 minutes between commercials. Whatever candidate makes them FEEL the best gets their votes. Never mind that the promises are empty and the man on the stage is as fraudulent as the Wizard of Oz; if sounds better than the others, and makes us feel better than the others, he gets our votes. The country is truly seriously deluded when news anchors have on-air orgasms just from watching their latest idol; when news magazine editors proclaim their latest idol to be "sort of like God, hovering over the earth." This is what happens when we turn away from the true God. Humans must worship something, so when they turn away from the true God, they make gods of themselves. This always leads to terrible disasters, but, we don't much care to learn from history.

Mr. Speaker's Crocodile Tears

I believe the Speaker is doing the smart thing in keeping the focus on Obamacare and the 3 Obama Lies: you can keep your plan; you can keep your doctor; your health insurance will be cheaper. Boehner does not want to give the MSM another excuse to hammer the House Republicans in another budget battle before the 2014 election. As he said a week ago: we need to win elections. He was making the point then that the GOP needs to stay off the radar for the next 10 months, and then the small business impact of Obamacare will be felt in October (when small business premiums will soar due to Obamacare), and voters will be so fed up with Obama, the Dems, and their outright lies on O-Care that the Repubs will have a real chance to take the Senate and overturn O-Care. But if the Republicans insist on changing battlefields from one on which they are slaughtering the Dems (Obamacare) to one on which the MSM backed Dems regularly slaughter the Repubs (budget battles), then they will be shooting themselves in the foot and allowing the Dems to keep the Senate. The fraud and lies behind Obamacare have to be the headlines for the next 10 months if the Republicans are to have a chance to win the Senate and officially put an end to the ACA, and put a bridle on an out of control president.
Another shaky ‘Internet Journalism’ piece. Beale is “the EPA’s highest paid employee?” More than the EPA Chief? More than the Deputy Administrator? What did he do for the EPA? “America’s highest paid global warming authority?” How much was he paid? What was his job title? Did he actually work for the EPA, or was he an independent contractor? Reading the source piece, the psych for Beale said he had delusions of grandeur. Combine that minor character flaw with his pathological lying, and you have the psychic twin of our president. And fellow Global Warmists Al Gore and John Holdren, two equally deluded nutcases who would cause great damage to the country. And the EPA did not spot his ridiculously delusional behavior for years? Great argument for getting rid of the EPA.
That is hilarious, CP. Are you on his staff? Issa's, that is. The Chairman of the Congressional Oversight Committee is powerless? No; Issa is powerless, for whatever his reason. He lacks the will to do his job and oversee. To be a defender of the rule of law you actually have to defend it; and that means taking action, something Issa staunchly refuses to do. He simply barks and whines, and allows the rule of law to be overtaken by the rule of the lawless. "The staunchest defender of the rule of law." Right. The one who waves his letter at pure evil and pretends that is 'defense'.
Yes, but doesn't he look serious, and so righteous, holding up his letter? Quite an indictment of the man's impotence and cowardice. Five years of Obama; five years of the most corrupt, constitution-flouting administration in history; five years of open, utter contempt for the citizens and the laws of this land; five years of mocking and ridiculing all the people and principles which made this country great, and not one indictment. Yes, Mr. Issa does have quite a track record.
Very sad. It seems that we all like our own scoundrel, while demanding the next district vote theirs out.
This is the woman who, as Governor of Kansas, gave a lavish private party in the governor's mansion to late term abortionists, honoring and celebrating with champagne and caviar the brutal butchering of living babies. Kansas taxpayers paid for the soiree, and Sebelius' PAC received serious donations from the infant-killing men who make Auschwitz look like summer camp. The impotent Congress will do nothing to this evil person, so she will continue to have her 15 minutes of blood-soaked fame; but believe me, she will receive the maximum term possible when she faces her Creator.
This Congress (House of Rep, specifically) is extremely adept at posturing and posing, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. I believe they are still working on Atty. General Holder's contempt of Congress charge for blocking the fast and furious gun running investigation. Issa, Boehner, and the others who pretend to be leaders have no idea of the meaning of the word. While they bark toothlessly, they are letting a criminal administration rape this country and destroy the constitution. They have no interest in the welfare of the citizens. Their only motivation is maintaining their own power, position, and wealth; and to that end they put on a great show of indignation for the benefit of the voters, while playing their suck-up games with the power brokers. These impotent fools offer no hope for the U.S.

Insect income inequality = the ant and the grasshopper fable. The ant works all summer to build the home, find food, store it up for the winter, while the grasshopper plays, gets high, sleeps all summer, and then demands the ant's winter food hoard because it isn't fair that the grasshopper doesn't have any. Human income inequality = a kid studies hard, does his/her homework, works a night/weekend/summer job (at minimum wage) to save up for college/trade school; stays in college, gets a beginning level job in tech or business or medical field, saves enough $ to get married and buy a home, making 6 figures by the time he/she is 30. The slug skips class, plays video games instead of doing homework, gets high, drops out, parties all day and night, gets his 'girlfriend' pregnant, forced to get a minimum wage job to pay living expenses, and complains about "Income Inequality." How about Effort Inequality; Character Inequality; Discipline Inequality; Work Ethic Inequality.
And it appears that former Obama advisers Rahm Emmanuel, David Axelrod, David Plouffe, Robert Gibbs and others who opposed Jarrett are the ones on the out. Pfeiffer and Nabors are simply Jarrett underlings. Valerie Jarrett is truly our first female president, and she does not allow doubters on her ship. I believe your assessment of his intelligence is spot on, and I've been wondering what has been holding back the mainstream media from celebrating our first female president, but it is likely the fact that such a celebration would once-and-for-all expose Obama's lack of cerebral substance. Such a realization would be a shock to the communal Progressive system.
