Birds win one!!!!!!
for now....
"Camp Perry Wind Turbine Project Halted Following Threat to Sue and Petition Campaign"
On this we agree. Camp Perry, matter of fact the entire Southern Lake Erie shoreline is an important migratory route for waterfowl and birds and should be off limits for "anything" that would impede those flight patterns or resting/feeding areas.

The Davis-Besse nuclear power station in that same vicinity has already displaced much of the wetlands necessary for migrating winged creatures.

It's not nice to mess with with mother nature.

"Zygote. This cell, formed by the union of an ovum and a sperm (Gr. zyg tos, yoked together), represents the beginning of a human being. The common expression 'fertilized ovum' refers to the zygote."

"The chromosomes of the oocyte and sperm are...respectively enclosed within female and male pronuclei. These pronuclei fuse with each other to produce the single, diploid, 2N nucleus of the fertilized zygote. This moment of zygote formation may be taken as the beginning or zero time point of embryonic development."

<quoted text>The left is oh so TOLERANT and love everyone, well, except those that disagree with them. So it's very despicable to hear them show their TRUE colors. As one living in the south and having come from the north; bigots are so much more up north than down south any day of the week.
You libbies are such bigots and yet fight for "the cause" just to get followers. it is you that relies on the media to feed you your information.
And there is a reason that Fox is killing all the other cable crap news channels combined, they get more viewership...combined. Duh!
As I’ve written here before, I have observed over the last decade that so many of my conservative friends have parents who watch Fox all the time, and who accept what you might call the Fox News View Of The World, but none of us do. It’s not that we are anti-Fox, necessarily, at least not on everything — Fox can be quite good — and it’s not that we are liberals. It’s that Fox is irrelevant to us; it’s something that old people like. It’s The Lawrence Welk Show for elderly conservatives. In fact, the only time I ever hear anybody talk about Fox it’s one of my liberal friends complaining about it. This is anecdotal, of course, but to me, it bolsters Frank Rich’s argument. Yes, Fox bigfoots its competitors, but people my age (I’m in my late 40s) and younger just do not have remotely the kind of relationship with TV news that older Americans do.

oh yeah, FOX. big worry.

north? oh yeah. i live in the most racist state in the country so i know what you're taking about. funny thing is....54% voted for Romney in 2012. so i guess not all the northern racists are liberals.

but when do you think the black folks are going to see it your way? think they'll come out and vote for a republican in the next election?


So why don’t blacks vote Republican? The answer is simple. Black people are not crazy. Being not crazy, they understand a simple truth about conservatives: They have never stood with, or up for, black people. Never.

Forget modern controversies like mass incarceration. Social conservatives, then based largely in the Democratic Party of the early to mid 20th century, opposed the Voting Rights Act. They opposed the Civil Rights Act. They opposed school integration. They opposed the Montgomery Bus Boycott. They opposed a law to crack down on lynching.

These are the people for whom African Americans are now supposed to vote? To make the argument is to betray a stunning contempt for the intelligence — and memory — of black voters.

In talking about race, conservatives have all the moral authority of a pimp talking about women’s rights.

<quoted text>So? "A major health insurance company". Who? What's the name of this "major" company?
Well, the WH has a different outlook. A bad one: "This is below the White House's target. The Obama administration has previously said that if 7 million people enrolled in coverage as expected, 2.7 million of them -- or about 40 percent -- would have to be young adults. That's an important target to hit because more young adults in the exchanges would mean a more healthy population, whose premiums could help subsidize the health care of older and sicker enrollees." Source:
Obamacare is a is expected. LOL
That's the old Snopes/Factcheck "proof" you often see.
"A high-level source"
"An anonamous administrator"
"A major company"
Anytime you see anything like this in their argument, just automatically assume they are lying... again.

"Fertilization is a sequence of events that begins with the contact of a sperm (spermatozoon) with a secondary oocyte (ovum) and ends with the fusion of their pronuclei (the haploid nuclei of the sperm and ovum) and the mingling of their chromosomes to form a new cell. This fertilized ovum, known as a zygote, is a large diploid cell that is the beginning, or primordium, of a human being."

Yes and they have a distinct DNA not related to the mother or father. In other words they are a separate and unique individual. Future generations will wonder how the barbarians ever survived to have them!

So, since the amount gambled in casinos in December 2013 is about the same as the amount gambled in early 2007, now you are claiming that poor people gamble now where they didn't in 2007? Based on what??
gambling is a disease, an affliction of the elderly, the uneducated, and the poor...but the bright side is that gambling is the only way to get the poor to pay some taxes....

so much Social Security, welfare, and unemployment money returned to the government...

and Obama encourages a society where work is optional and a free ride is preferred....

I have multiple degrees but don't need any of them to understand the word competition. Costco and Sam's Club have stores/gas stations almost directly across from each other where I live. They set the gas rate (competition) for the city and sell virtually the same brand name products in the same bulk quantities for competitive prices.
Are you really so stupid you don't define that as competition?

Speaking of bizarre logic....

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?

Why did Hillary Clinton lie to Congress, lie to the country, and lie to Ty Wood's father?

Why did Eric Holder lie to Congress?

Why aren't Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder in prison for lying to Congress?

Oh, yeah. I forgot another question you've been running away from for... what is it now... over a year?
