So much for actual science being taught......the first 5 of the 6 types of evolution don't hold up scientifically...but THAT shouldn't matter!....we'll teach it ANYWAY!
If, as a scientist, I have a theory that doesn't hold up to the 4 tennents that define what is or is not scientific, I THROW THE BAD THEORY OUT and make a new theory.
EVOLUTION IS A RELIGION it is not scientific by any means, but it does meet all 4 tennents of a RELIGION.
GET YOUR EVOLUTION RELIGION OUT OF MY SCHOOLS!
This is even wider than the loads they took through HWY 95 in lower Benewah County the last time. Those barely fit on the road here where we have old narrow 2 lane, delayed an ambulance, and had their outlying trucks run people off the road. While sometimes they warned other truckers it was inconsistent so regular commerce suffers. No matter what you think about the tar sands, if you care about your community you don't want these guys on your narrow roads. Their arroganc, and that of ITD, is insufferable.
Free market capitalism at work.
Just like cabbage or onions.
Roll 'em through and keep 'em in the Tar Sands disaster zone...for good.
And how about the Tar Sands workers, business owners, stockholders and bankers take up permanent residence on site, as well, nestled among their 'evaporator' forest.
All these city slickers with their bleeding hearts disgust me. If they would get out of their fairy tale world and watch the way these wolf gangs kill just for thrill, it might change their minds. These are Canadian grey wolves that have been reintroduced, a much larger variety than the original native species. These are nothing but ice cold killing machines. Shame on you idiots hiding behind your self righteous facades.
Alberto Robledo is a HE not a she. Weird how George Prentice refers to Alberto Robledo, a man, as a she throughout the article. There is also no such thing as "transwomen." They're just perverted males living out their fetish; no need to participate in this perversion because of liberal political correctness.
The folks running these rackets are the bottom feeders of the parasitic financial industry.
These payday, auto-title and installment loan traps have been spreading throughout the U.S. like a cancer, praying on the increasing number of poor in the Land of the Free (Enterprise).
The growth of this racket is just one more sign of the actual depressed economy, despite the fantasies pumped out by the bank/corporate controlled Main Scam Media.
Another sign that feudalism is returning with a vengeance to Slavelandia.
Greed is Good and don't forget it!
This just might be another sign of the increasing amount of altruism that will begin to expand with the renaissance of the boomers that's in process.
Come on folks, let's move beyond the Me, My, Mine consciousness.
We're running out of time.
New York Banksters Stole From Current and Future Generations; Went to Mansions
Thefts occurred from 2008 through 2013.
More than $3 Trillion is missing from current and future U.S. citizens.
That's just 300 million, 10 Thousand Dollar trips to Disneyland.
No charges filed yet for fraud and felony grand theft.
Makes Laseter's charges seem rather insignificant.
And there will never be any punishment for the Banksters.
What you're all dancing around on both sides is business owners' greed. Pure and simple. If labor costs go up across the board, the business' costs go up, and the owner makes less. Conservatives want to maximize the business owner's income potential, and champion that side. Liberals champion the worker so they don't mind that the business owner makes less. Easy way to characterize the responses above.
Raising the minimum wage won't cause businesses to fold, it'll just reduce owners' income. Hurts more at the small, local level, but not so much at the big corporate level.
I find it ridiculous to argue for the owners unless you are one, personally.
On the surface this sort of neighborhood notification program seems very positive.
But it has a dark side that is rarely examined.
The sensationalist nature of media coverage has spawned many public misconceptions about sex offenders, namely that: (1) sex crimes are becoming more and more prevalent; (2) sex offenders have a high re-offense rate and can’t be rehabilitated; (3) registered sex offenders are mostly violent rapists and pedophiles.
Studies show reoffense rates for sex offenders are barely over five percent, making sex offenders among the least likely criminals to re-offend.
When sex offenders reoffend, it feels like the justice system has failed to protect society and makes for a compelling news story. But it doesn’t reflect the reality that, statistically speaking, you are more likely to be victimized by someone with no history of sex crimes than by an already registered sex offender.
Since most sex offenses are committed by first-time offenders who know their victims, not strangers who have previously been convicted, the registry could not have provided useful information for prevention in the majority of cases.
However, this information is useful for community members who wish to engage in violent vigilantism or harassment of sex offenders.
Sex offender laws are also arguably counterproductive to safety due to their publicly punitive nature, which drives many offenders into isolation and despair and increases the likelihood they will re-offend. Instead of reintegrating with society, becoming productive working citizens, and forming healthy social relationships, they may face stigmatizion and harassment, difficulty finding jobs, and emotional alienation.
Another problem with some states’ registries lies in the overly broad classification of crimes as sex offenses.
In at least ten states, you can earn the sex offender designation from fairly innocuous forms of public indecency like streaking, mooning, or urinating in public.
None of the registries provide any factual details of the offenses, just the names of the crimes (and sometimes not even that).
Many registries also contain numerous purely statutory offenders who are often also minors at the time of the offense, such as a 17 year-old who engages in consensual sexual activity with his 15 year-old girlfriend. In many jurisdictions, this would be labeled “sexual assault against a minor,” which makes this person look like a greater threat than the circumstances suggest.
By effectively diluting the sex offender registry with people who pose little threat to public safety, it is more difficult to identify and keep track of the high-risk offenders.
The ideas behind these proposals are well-intentioned, and some could actually be good ideas within a more sensible overall regime. Yet as long as the registries remain bloated with low-risk offenders and our policies remain focused on punishment and stigmatization rather than prevention and rehabilitation, sex offender laws will continue to do more harm than good.
“I assumed that access to health care is something veterans and their families didn’t have to worry about as they strive to find stable jobs.”
The assumption made by Gessford is a valid one, but it should be no different for any other families in the U.S.
To single out veterans is discrimination.
"soldiers who leave the military after tours to Afghanistan or Iraq"..."don’t receive the same benefits."
Now any soldier that leaves the military after tours of duty to Afghanistan or Iraq should be commended for removing themselves from unjustified invasions of those countries, but this certainly doesn't make them more deserving of health care than any other U.S. citizen.
Especially those non-veteran citizens that never participated in the unjust invasions in the
Unfortunately, many of the veterans were duped into killing innocent civilians through ignorance and/or desperation, or through some sort of mis-guided or mis-placed sense of patriotism.
But they still deserve what any citizen deserves, which is health care, without becoming indentured debt slaves to the financial/medical cartels.
As for medicaid:
Boosting eligibility through Federal funds is only a bandaid on the gaping wound that is healthcare in the U.S.
Any changes made to Medicaid are only bandaids on a never-healing open sore.
And no, Obamacare is not the solution either, it's just another bandaid.
A good start on bringing health to the sick care system is to remove the parasitic insurance companies from the trough.
Next, remove the greedy pharmaceutical companies from the trough.
Next, eliminate the strangling control of the AMA over the number of physicians
Next, eliminate the greedy overpriced tuition charged by medical colleges.
Next, get the greedy corporations out of the hospital administration business.
On this last point, having bottom line focused administrators managing healthcare increases the likelihood that its morphs into sick care.
The biggest profits per patient can best be gotten by gradually destroying their health and not in improving their health.
And here's the primary reason that the overall sick care system as well as individual health in this country are both going from bad to worse.
The big money and best profits are dealing in sickness, not health.
I agree that veterans need affordable health care. So does everyone else. I'm retired Army, and without exception we all knew that if you wanted the benefits, you stayed 20 years. Every proposal I've seen so far to extend benefits to those with under 20 years is nothing more than camouflage for the overall reduction of benefits.
What we need, is a true single payer system. You know, the kind that civilized nations have.
It is easy to try and make a point when it is not you that suffers from that decision. To reject expanding Medicaid to those who truly need medical attention and cannot afford it is cruel but our politicians would rather play politics because if they get sick or ill, we the taxpayers pay for them to trot off to the doctor. If they had to forfeit their health for the sake of making a point, they would quickly see the light and approve a program that would not cost this state another dime.
Is Mrs. Crapo left-handed? Just wonderin'...
I'd like it more if it notified of VIOLENT offenders, as distinguished from NON-VIOLENT, which I don't see that this service does. I don't care about some 18-year-old who got caught sleeping with his 16-year-old girlfriend....
You're better off seeing a loan shark.
We are the families on the front lines of Canada’s oil sands development. What message does it send to the world about Canada’s oil sands production when Baytex Energy is forcing my family and our neighbours from our homes through open venting its oil sands processing tanks? Penn West Petroleum and other Alberta companies capture their oil sands gasses and run closed systems: why won’t Baytex take the same responsibility? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqfFeKWm9lc Help us get back into our homes. Breathable air and a thriving energy sector are not mutually exclusive. Baytex and Canada can do better. Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/StopBaytex
I didn't think Rosalie's voice was 'weathered' at all! In fact I thought it was surprisingly strong and crystal clear! Feeling full of gratitude for being able to sing along with these wonderful folks:😊
