Re: “Detainee Traded for Bergdahl May Have Contacted Taliban

The remaining Guantanamo prisoners should be transferred to high security federal prisons in the U.S. and prosecuted under the U.S. criminal justice system. Guess which Idiot Political Party is preventing this from happening?

Re: “Most Americans See Combating Climate Change as a Moral Duty

The name of the game is control.

What better way to control masses of people than to make them feel guilty for breathing and morally responsible for a problem just by being alive. The parasitic controllers were starting to lose some of the true believers in human caused global warming due to more and more people getting wise to the con, so the oldest con in the world, religion is now being enlisted to sway any believers who aren’t either able or willing to use critical thinking to uncover the con. For the Catholics it has gone from original sin to the original sin of breathing.

All one has to do to see the hoax for what it is, is to question why the alarmists went from focusing public awareness on "global warming" to focusing on "climate change." They clearly assumed that they can’t lose with “climate change”, since our climate is in a state of constant flux, so they could even blame man made CO2 for global cooling. Brilliant. There were/are hundreds of billions of dollars at stake, so this was an obvious way to keep the gravy train rolling.

Follow the money.

Re: “Megadrought Threatens Southwest, Plains For Decades to Come

According to tree ring data the 20th century was the wettest western century during the past 2 thousand years. So yes, the western U.S. has seen and will see again severe drought exceedingly drier than the 20th century. But atmospheric CO2 doesn't correlate to western drought cycles but the PDO ((Pacific Decadal Oscillation)) does. Which means that wasting time and money to reduce fossil fuel use is futile.

Re: “Pro-Gay Marriage Signals Seen in U.S. Supreme Court Action

I find it sad that Judge Thomas, a man whose own marriage would not have been allowed a mere 50 years ago had it not been for anti-miscegenation laws being ruled unconstitutional, is so vehemently against allowing men and women the freedom to marry who they love.

Re: “No Powerball Winner, Lifting Jackpot to $450 Million

Chances of winning the lottery if you don't buy a ticket? Zero. So I'll gladly take odds of 1 in several million and still believe it could be me. As the old saying goes, "You've got to be in it to win it." Frankly, it's all down to luck. Nothing else really counts. So I've made up a little free and just-for-fun page which generates your own personal 'lucky' quick pick numbers. Who knows, it might work - you just never know your luck... As I say, it is completely free and just a bit of fun, so look out for VillaLibra Lucky Numbers if you want to see if you can locate it for yourself.

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.

Re: “Senate Passes Keystone XL Bill, Faces Obama Veto

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.

Re: “Results Delayed in Bergdahl Probe

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!

Re: “USDA Secretary Orders Update of Animal Welfare Research Strategy

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.

Re: “USDA Secretary Orders Update of Animal Welfare Research Strategy

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.

Re: “USDA Secretary Orders Update of Animal Welfare Research Strategy

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.

Re: “USDA Secretary Orders Update of Animal Welfare Research Strategy

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.

Re: “USDA Secretary Orders Update of Animal Welfare Research Strategy

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.

Re: “USDA Secretary Orders Update of Animal Welfare Research Strategy

"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.
