So by definition, those people were not militia.
Yes, you are correct. I was just parroting the media which has been referring to them as "Civilian Militia" or "Armed Militia". I stand corrected.

Actually, when I stop to think about it, referring to them as "militia" gives them credibility which is the last thing I would want to do. "Revolutionaries" is far more fitting.

Don't worry...science is on the J-O-B...

"In one research project it was found that 5 percent of studies fail to state a null hypotheses...

...in a second study, questionable conclusion were draws from 47.5 percent of articles evaluated."

New Earthquake update video here:

PLEASE get the word out to those who may not know (or may not be ready for it)

Major Earthquake unrest showing Globally -- BE PREPARED !



------

Many Warnings The Great Tribulation is about to start. The last 'Event' in the last part of The Preamble preceding The Seven Trumpets (description starts at Rev. 8:2) is the first Global Mega Quake that Will 'change' life on this planet as we know it - the 'elite' aren't going to be too happy to find out they've been lied to. The Judgment of the living will begin at that point (remember, Christ brings with Him His reward http://biblehub.com/matthew/16-27.htm ). We will be tested during this Severe time to Truly determine where our loyalties lay. Will it be 'self' preservation at ALL cost for what little time is left for this world or will it be Trusting The Creator of Heaven and Earth http://biblehub.com/hebrews/11-6.htm to give you back your life if you should lose it in this last Battle obeying/following Him? May our decisions bring Glory To GOD & His Lamb. Be in Christ, follow Him because He IS Truth. Let Him find you 'striving', as Apostle Paul said, "Strive earnestly in the good conflict of faith. Lay hold of Eternal Life, to which thou hast been called, and hast confessed the good confession before many witnesses.". http://biblehub.com/1_timothy/6-12.htm . GOD Bless.

you need to check out the USGS site that monitors quakes. you will find that there is no rise in the frequency or size of quakes..

you have once again been lied to you by your religious cult freaks.

how can you possibly be so stupid? you have the worlds' knowledge at your fingertips and you believe people who tell you obvious, two second google searches provable lies...

so you want to be lied to ? do you want to believe the world is ending? that shows a much deeper, and much more disturbing psychological trait in you than just your cult fanatacism...

<quoted text>This Beaver post is your brain on Halcyon folks.
George W Bush and his merry band of neocons nearly destroyed the US through shenanigan after shenanigan. We could make another list to round it off at an even thousand.
The economy and by proxy the nation has nearly been restored to the soundness that GWB inherited from his predecessor on 1/21/2001. That's basically 13 years shot in the t*ot.
.
The amazing thing to me is that anyone is stupid enough to believe, let alone repeat, the lie about the debt increasing more under Obama than under all previous 43 presidents combined. It's like they live under a rock. Isn't the rise in the debt bad enough without them lying about it?
What is wrong with these people?

Today is the 21st anniversary of the Waco Massacre by Bill Clinton and his administration with that beautiful (sic) Janet Reno that led to the deaths of 79 men, women, and children children children.
Since 1993, former members of the FBI, former Special Forces and CIA operatives have come forward with new evidence to suggest that the FBI’s claim is inaccurate.
In the spring of 1998, under the Freedom of Information Act, investigators from MGA Studio’s film division became the first private citizens to gain access to the Waco investigation evidence lockers. What they found was shocking. Upon examination, the evidence gathered under the supervision of federal officials appeared to contradict the FBI’s congressional testimony, raising serious and disturbing questions about events surrounding the siege at Mt. Carmel and the deaths of the Davidians.
Among the questions still not answered:
• Who were those men at the back of the building, firing automatic weapons into the last, remaining exterior doors in the building as the fire raged on?
• What caused the shoot-out to start on Feb. 28?
• What was the incident that initiated the gun battle on the April 19?
• What caused the explosion on the roof of the concrete bunker, 12 minutes into the fire?
• What did we find on the four visits to the Austin Evidence Locker?
• What can be seen on the 28 video tapes made by the Texas Rangers on April 19?
• What were the functions of the three different types of pyrotechnic devices recovered in the Mt. Carmel rubble by the Rangers?
• How was the famous "Delta Force" military unit involved in the end-game?
• What were the roles of Webster Hubbell, Vincent Foster and Hillary Clinton in the final hours of the Branch Davidians?
• What did the CIA know about the Waco tragedy, before the final showdown in April?
yes, those religious cult freaks brought so many of their followers to massacre..

no different than Jim Jones.

Soft money...

'Soft money position is an untenured job that is funded through an external contract of grant as opposed to funded directly through the university...'

Soft money RESEARCHERS can be POST-doctoral students, professors, or researchers....

"some researchers have 100 percent of their salaries funded by soft money"

'A university can CREATE a soft money position to bring in a grant or contract dollars then terminate the position when the grant or contract expires"

'During the 1999-2000 academic year, 46 percent of all faculty positions at the University of California (all schools) were soft money positions'

Nothing shady going on with scientific grants at the NSF and nothing gets in the way of furthering man's knowledge....

"...an analysis of average reviewer ratings for NSF awards and declines for FY2010 revealed that 1,312 proposals scoring “excellent” were declined and 98 proposals scoring “fair to good” were awarded..."

New England has been colder as is most of the USA, over in England, they are now getting more snow in winter for the past years. March was a record cold here...

I see ya moving yer lips, but ya ain't satyng anything, lib!
For the educated that's an easy question to answer, because all you baggers with a few exceptions have no f....g idea what global warming meant. Not even in the slightest, to you & your fox drones it's about a 10 ft of snow outside your door as proof warming is a hoax.
To the educated however warming has always been about extreme weather events whether that means, 10 ft of snow, 10 ft of water or 10 ft of sand or that your property might just get blown away. It's about the frequency of these events being on the increase. If you think it's all BS why not buy shares in building insurance companies. After all that's a slap in the face for those who buy solar panels.
