No period here. But Obama had his twice. Once after lying about keeping our health insurance and once after lying about keeping our doctors.

But it's you who doesn't want to talk about Benghazi. You were told there was no "there" there. And you foolishly believed it. Remember?

Fed-Up Veteran Tells Paul Ryan What He Thinks of ‘Bipartisan’ Budget Deal in Viral Open Letter

The scathing open letter, posted on Facebook last week, is going viral — and you only have to read the first few sentences to know why. It should be noted that because Wooten’s Facebook page is set to private, we weren’t able to review the original post on his wall and had to rely on re-posts.

“Please note that this request by you for a cash donation from me is extremely unfortunate and very ill-timed,” Wooten writes in the open letter to Ryan.“You see sir, I am one of the military retirees your ‘bipartisan’ budget just impacted. You and every Republican (both in the House and Senate) that voted to pass this travesty betrayed and broke trust with me and everyone like me.”

Jarrett was on the O'Reilly Factor last night. Because O'Reilly has been on a personal mission to draw attention to the lack of black leaders sending the right messages to the black community for months and directing one of his questions about this to Obama in the Super Bowl interview, Jarrett invited O'Reilly to the big WH announcement about "My Brother's Keeper" initiative. Obama even acknowledged O'Reilly's passion about this issue at that event.
But it takes someone like O'Reilly to light a fire.

Military Spending Cuts and How They Are Being Distorted

Noah Millman explains why the possible reductions in the number of military personnel are not as significant as some headlines make them out to be:

So what’s the reason for describing the proposed reductions that way? My base-case assumption is that “lowest levels since 1940&#8243; is just a lot more dramatic than “below the levels of 2000&#8243; or “largest reductions since 1992.” But it is potentially deceptive precisely because it is more dramatic.

That’s a good point. Critics of any reduction in the size of the military or the military budget are always going to seize on such misleading comparisons to make reductions appear to be much more significant, so it’s important not to blow them out of proportion or make them out to be something more than they are. Before and during the 2012 campaign, Republican hawks repeatedly claimed that the Navy was being shrunk to WWI-era levels, which was true provided that you paid no attention to the quality of the ships, the vast technological differences between the two periods, and the relative strength of other naval forces. Likewise, references to having the “smallest Army since 1940&#8243; conveniently ignore that the U.S. will still have more men under arms than any country in the world except for the two most populous countries, and will still be far and away the leading military power in the world. One of the main drivers of the increase in military spending since 2001 has been rising personnel costs, so it is appropriate that any attempt to get military spending under control will involve reducing the overall number of military personnel. To argue otherwise is to cast aside all pretense to fiscal responsibility.

Even after these reductions, the U.S. will still have an active military that is much larger and more powerful than the one it had in 1940 (or at most other points in U.S. history), which is remarkable considering how much less dangerous the world is and how much more secure the U.S. is today than they were then. The U.S. still won’t need a military that large, and military spending will have to keep being cut back after the splurge in spending over the last decade and a half, but this is a good start.

Rightwingers believe in censorship; but only for blacks:

Bill O'Reilly: White House Needs To Get 'Gangsta Rappers' To 'Knock It Off'

O'Reilly told Obama's senior advisor Valerie Jarrett on Thursday night that if the White House is serious about implementing their new program to help strengthen minority communities, they need to "attack" the source of the problem. Which, he said, is obviously Jay-Z and Kanye West, right?

"You have to attack the fundamental disease if you want to cure it," the Fox News host said. "You're gonna have to get people like Jay-Z, Kanye West, all these gangsta rappers to knock it off."

Jarrett described the new initiative, called "My Brother's Keeper," as "a new effort aimed at empowering boys and young men of color." She said she has already seen improvements and is very hopeful of the program's success, but O'Reilly insisted there will be no change until "all" rappers go on TV and announce that that kind of behavior "is wrong."

"They [young men] idolize these guys with the hats on backwards, and the terrible rap lyrics and the drugs and all of that," O'Really said. "You've gotta get these guys."

How Earth was watered
3 hours ago by Alvin Powell
How Earth was watered
“It is very possible that many planets are born with liquid water oceans,” said Linda Elkins-Tanton, director of the Carnegie Institution for Science’s Department of Terrestrial Magnetism. Credit: Kris Snibbe/Harvard Staff Photographer
Early Earth's accidental deluge via water-carrying comets has long been a stumbling block for those interested in life on other planets.
Scientists agree that life needs water to evolve. But if water only arrives through chance impacts with comets, then life elsewhere might indeed be rare.
Water is common among the meteorites and other small bodies whose collisions formed the Earth, but scientists have long believed that the intense heat of the events dried out the young planet. Water must have arrived later, splashing down from comets after the planet was formed.
New research, however, is changing that view. Evidence is mounting that the planet's water arrived early, during formation, aboard meteorites and small bodies called "planetesimals." The work also suggests that though the planet-forming collisions were so energetic that they led to oceans of magma and widespread melting, even the intense heat would not have dried out the planet completely.
The emerging view of a watery birth for the Earth has raised the hopes of scientists seeking extrasolar life. If the presence of water isn't left to chance collisions but instead is a product of the planet-forming process, then oceans where life can evolve may be common after all.
"It is very possible that many planets are born with liquid water oceans," said Linda Elkins-Tanton, director of the Carnegie Institution for Science's Department of Terrestrial Magnetism.
Elkins-Tanton spoke Wednesday at the Geological Lecture Hall. Her talk, "Building Earth-like Planets," was part of the Evolution Matters lecture series of the Harvard Museum of Natural History. Elkins-Tanton studies the evolution of terrestrial planets and the relationship between Earth and its life forms.
One problem with the water-from-comets theory, Elkins-Tanton said, is that evidence has emerged that water was present on Earth far earlier than previously thought. The planet's oldest rocks date back 4.03 billion years, but there's a material older than rocks, called "detrital zircons," that formed some 4.40 billion years ago, just 164 million years after the first solids began to form out of the protoplanetary disk. And some of those zircons show evidence of having been created in contact with water.
Another issue with the comet theory, Elkins-Tanton said, is that the water on most comets doesn't match that on Earth. Water is made up of oxygen and hydrogen. Hydrogen's nucleus is normally made up of one proton, but the nucleus of a different form, called deuterium, has a proton and a neutron. Scientists can fingerprint water using the ratio of regular hydrogen to deuterium. For most comets, that ratio doesn't match water on Earth, she said.
Meanwhile, the water in meteorites and planetesimals does match that of Earth. But before scientists could settle on those bodies as the source of the planet's water, they had to solve another problem. Those bodies had up to 18 percent water, much more than Earth, and scientists couldn't think of a reasonable process to explain where it all went.

Do you get/use Tricare in addition to Medicare? If Lois aka Carol's husband is a veteran, does he not get Tricare for him and his family?

I didn't realize that the VA lent money for down payments on homes; so they don't lend for the entire mortgage?

" Patrick Moore obtained a Ph.D. in ecology from the Institute of Animal Resource Ecology, University of British Columbia...."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrick_Moore_%2...

Whats an ecologist?

From the Princeton Review....

"Most ecologists are scientists with backgrounds in chemistry, environmental science, geology, biology, climatology, statistics and, in many cases, economics. The depth of knowledge in each field determines the specialty area each candidate works in; a master’s degree in a science or ecology itself is becoming more and more common as the minimum requirement. Nearly all aspiring ecologists are expected to have some field experience.

Ecologists, because of their exposure to the growing mountain of numbers which indicate that we are ravaging our own planet, often become environmentalists, using their scientific and statistics-based background as a resource for their educational and lobbying efforts"
