Senate Majority PAC’s nonsensical attack ad in Louisiana

Continues obsessing about Koch Bro. Documented OCD. Reid ignores this little fact when attacking --

WaPo notes

"First of all, we can’t resist noting that Senate Majority PAC itself is funded by out-of-state billionaires, such as former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who donated $2.5 million to the organization earlier in 2014."

Mr Education here is too ignorant of mathematics to understand that problem & blames liberalism.

If that were actually due to liberalism then you are admitting liberals are so much smarter than you right whiners.

The idea you can't understand that example proves you know NOTHING about mathematics & nothing about education.

One of Einstein's claim to fame. He expressed the relationship between mass & energy in a mathematical equation.
Scientists express behavior in nature in mathematical terms & use mathematic theory to expand & solve issues.
Yes, he proof the theory and established a baseline that the formula was TRUE.

An unproven theory/math equation is worthless and unscientific.

June O’Neill, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office, has noted that the wage gap is affected by a number of factors, including that the average woman has less work experience than the average man and that more of the weeks worked by women are part-time rather than full-time. Women also tend to leave the work force for periods in order to raise children, seek jobs that may have more flexible hours but lower pay and choose careers that tend to have lower pay.
Indeed, BLS data show that women who do not get married have virtually no wage gap; they earn 96 cents for every dollar a man makes.

that would be several thousands of dollars per year for any decent career.

you'd be Ok with getting paid thousands per year less for he same job?

Two people with equivalent positions doing the same job.
Economists at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis surveyed economic literature and concluded that “research suggests that the actual gender wage gap (when female workers are compared with male workers who have similar characteristics) is much lower than the raw wage gap.” They cited one survey, prepared in 2009 for the Labor Department, which concluded that when such differences are accounted for, much of the hourly wage gap dwindled, to about 5 cents on the dollar.

“This study leads to the unambiguous conclusion that the differences in the compensation of men and women are the result of a multitude of factors and that the raw wage gap should not be used as the basis to justify corrective action. Indeed, there may be nothing to correct,” the report for the Labor Department said.“The differences in raw wages may be almost entirely the result of the individual choices being made by both male and female workers.”

Deny it.
People have been unhappy with insurance premiums rising 2-3 times the rate of inflation for the past two decades. In the past ten years, my policy has been can celled & a new plan offered at least 4 times.

The exchanges offer a wide range of policies including those with low deductibles & wide range of networks.

Yet, once again you fail to explain what this alleged new concept is and why it is considered to be any more valuable at teaching math than the traditional method.

You APPARENTLY do not understand it -

Once again Carol you're making statement that you can't back up with even an iota of evidence.
Here's the actual numbers on what the Koch brothers and George Soros have given;
Individual donations to federal candidates, parties and political action committees (1989 to 2010)
Koch Brothers:$2.58 million
George Soros:$1.74 million
David Koch:$2,224,170
•$667,500 – National Republican Congressional Committee
•$555,000 – Republican National Committee
•$191,400 – National Republican Senatorial Committee
Charles G. Koch:$363,100
•$58,900 – National Republican Senatorial Committee
•$50,000 – Republican National Committee
George Soros:$1,748,627
•$252,670 – Democratic National Committee
•$147,216 – Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee
•$259,716 – Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee
But go ahead Carol, keep showing how willfully ignorant and intellectually lazy you are.
You left out all the unions donating primarily - if not 100%- to the Democratic Party, liberal causes and candidates.

Soros is behind a majority of funding to perpetrate the progressive liberal ideology.

In a PBS interview, Soros said he didn't do anything wrong almost destroying the British Pound Sterling which would have plunged the entire world into a deep depression.

In contrast, the Koch’s spend millions on nonprofit organizations like Americans for Prosperity and the Center to Protect Patient Rights.

You should also know that, since 2000, the KochPAC has given more than $1.4 million to Democratic candidates, leadership PACs and party committees, according to numbers compiled by Congressional Quarterly’s Moneyline.

The Kochs were asked to donate to Democrats in 2011 by inviting them to a private donor retreat in South Carolina in exchange for a five-figure contribution. The Kochs released audio of then-Chairwoman Patty Murray soliciting funds from them of which that request was called a “staff error” by Democratic spokespeople.

http://www.politico.com/story/2014/03/koch-br...

Harry Reid is mad his party and his ideology don't have exclusivity when it comes to donations and demonizes anyone and anything who don't fall into lockstep with his progressive liberal ideology.

Just like Obama going after Fox News - the only news outlet he didn't have in his back pocket.

"James Lovelock, who first detected CFCs in the atmosphere and proposed the Gaia hypotheses, claims society should retreat to ‘climate-controlled cities’ and give up on large expanses of land which will become uninhabitable. "

If the GOP keeps blocking additional funding for veterans healthcare benefits, keeping returning veterans from getting the help they need for healing from mental and physical injuries incurred in Bush's two long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan , help in getting decent housing , and jobs with livable wages then we will start seeing even more mass shootings on our military bases like at Ft. Hood and no Americans will be voting republican for a very long time.
