Sadly, he needs go - he lied - it's just that simple. Bring back Martin Bashir - he lost his job for telling the truth.
Roger Goodell is a dork. he has this job because of connections, not merit. Pete Rozelle was the best NFL Commissioner. $44 million for being a dork? Man, I wish I had that job.
Good for you, Mitt. Give someone else a chance to lose.
GOP support for the Keystone pipeline should make it clear even to the most right wing conservatives that the GOP is only about protecting the interests of large corporations and the top 1%. How can they justify a pipeline that threatens the Ogallala aquifer, provides practically zero long term jobs, and does nothing to make this country more energy secure? Then to top it off, the GOP is willing to allow a foreign company to use eminent domain against the property rights of U.S. farmers and ranchers who don't want this ecological boondoggle on their property. The GOP is more than willing to sacrifice the U.S. Constitution for the sake of the top 1%.
Once these 'Refugees' you speak of become Uber drivers (because anyone can), they will own their own business and make 2 or 3x what they made driving a taxi for someone else.
Understand that after Bergdahl left his unit, fellow soldiers were wounded and killed looking for him and then Obama traded terrorist for him, sounds like he has a lot of explaining to do!
This is a too little too late response by the USDA to the exposure of pervasive, appalling cruelty at one of its own facilities and this "training" seems to be little more than a PR move. If the USDA actually cared whether animals were being systematically abused in kooky experiments it would take more decisive actions such as terminating the employees who were found to be abusing animals, installing cameras in all facilities, and working with animal protection groups to institute real animal welfare reform.
Nothing is going to change as long as we think of animals only in terms of what we can use them for. Look at the name of this facility: "Meat Animal" Research Center. They are not "meat animals," anymore than others are "fur-trim animals" or "handbag animals." This facility should be shut down.
It's a step in the right direction. But it seems that rather than more training they simply need more humanity. It's not as if any of the experiments are at all necessary to start with.
It's a step in the right direction, but I think they need to shut down the program forever. I am vegan so that I never create a demand for such vicious treatment of animals.
It’s going to take more than “training” to stop the abuses at this facility. As long as animals are viewed as mere moneymaking commodities, rather than the living, breathing, feeling, thinking beings they are, exploitation will continue. The USDA should take PETA’s advice and shut down this program forever.
"More training?" That's the least of the fundamental changes that need to be imposed. This entire program should be abolished altogether. But at the very least, everyone involved in those sadistic acts of animal cruelty must be terminated, whistleblowers must be rewarded, cameras should be placed throughout the facility, and independent monitors must routinely come in to inspect.
I'm glad that PETA was instrumental in bringing attention to these horrible experiments. It will take more than training, though, to stop what the NYT revealed. As someone who is familiar with government re-training classes, I know them to be ineffective. This lab needs to be permanently closed.
This could be the one area where I am in agreement with the President. I feel like a gun is placed against my back every month when I pay Centurylink $73. I typically get about half the speed I am paying for. Broadband users in Europe pay $10 - 20 a month for reliable high speed broadband. Cable and telco interests have bribed our representatives to keep the right to limit competition.
My hope is that wireless solutions continue to improve. It will soon be feasible for HOAs with 200 and up homes to supply broadband at a fraction of the cost we currently are saddled with.
The more on the net, the more people to tax... Did you mention his internet tax plans... kinda like all those taxes on the cell phones that popped up the past few years. Republicans want to have an internet tax too.
This is shaping up to be the largest gathering of cave-painters in cave-painter history. The level of ignorance radiating from this event should be visible from outer space.
As far as I'm concerned Obama is a Hero and Repulsicans are a Lynch Mob of A**holes and Creeps.
(Dem=Rep) = Bad for America. Big government means more taxes and less return to the citizen. Government is horrendously inefficient. Most pie in the sky talk in this speech. If he really wants to help us in the middle, he should make government smaller relative to GDP... He just said he's about making it bigger than ever... just like every president has done for decades.
Truly gifted speaker, great speech. Wish I could believe him, but I know I can't. He's got the worst credibility problem I've ever seen... he just shy of politicians who are force to resign.
I did a double-take on the line "The Supreme Court's precedent-shattering interpretation". Read the ruling; it UPHOLDS precedent, not shatters it.
