Where he was and how he evaded capture shows we have really no friends in the Mid East or any Islamic countries. But I like that "The Turbanators" hahahah!

Yes you can't measure an infinity, if you could it would in fact be a finite value.
I'm not contradicting myself, we are talking about a paradoxical event.
The only radius to the universe is time like horizon between what is observable and what is not observable. The space beyond that is at an infinite radius, hence the infinite flat model.
You can't say the universe has a radius of x distance because it's radius is infinite.
That's completely contradictory to what you have claimed up until now. You claimed it was physically infinite, but now you say it can't even have a physical radius because it is infinite.

If the universe is a physical phenomenon, it has a radius.

You are so fixated on infinity, you are willing to claim the universe is not a physical phenomenon.

This, of course, proves I am right - that no physical infinity can exist.

Your latest lame way around this is to say the universe has no radius, which would mean the universe is not a physical phenomenon.

Your thesis can be stated as follows:

1. The universe is a physically infinite phenomenon because,

2. It's radius is not measureable, because

3. It has no radius,

4. Therefore it is not a physical phenomenon,

5.. So it is an infinite physical phenomenon.

Your ideas are absurd, and your mind is jello.

Sarah Palin’s online video service starring herself had a hugely successful launch on Monday, as millions of Americans paid $9.95 for the rare opportunity of hearing the former Alaska Governor speak.

The Web site for The Sarah Palin Channel reportedly crashed several times during the day, as it was overwhelmed by subscribers seeking a once-in-a-lifetime glimpse of the reclusive Palin sharing her opinions.

At the corporate headquarters of the Palin Channel, the marketing director Tracy Klugian attributed the site’s mammoth success to “the simple law of supply and demand.”

“The Governor is a very private person who chooses her words very, very carefully,” Klugian said.“When someone like that finally decides to speak out, millions of people will pay to hear what she has to say.”

Harland Dorrinson, aged sixty-two, of Flint, Michigan, was just one of the millions of Americans who jammed Governor Palin’s channel on Monday, only to find that the site had frozen under the weight of traffic.“I’ll keep refreshing the page until I finally get through,” he said.“Hearing Sarah Palin talk isn’t something that happens every day.”

Media experts said Monday that the stunning launch of Palin’s Web site bodes well for the upcoming video channel from another rarely seen personality, Donald Trump.

Obama hasn't fixed the Bush problems yet?

Well, at least he's working on it.

He fixed Bush's employment problem - there are fewer people employed full-time than when Bush left office.

Obama spent about a trillion dollars of our money fixing that problem, i.e., driving employment lower.

Iraq had a coalition government and was at peace when Bush left office. Obama fixed that problem - failing to leave any residual force to help hold it together.

Russia did not own Crimea when Bush left office. Obama's weakness fixed that.

Health insurance was much less expensive when Bush left office. Obama fixed that.

Bush's last budget deficit was $459 billion.

Obama fixed that. His budget deficits have been, in order,$1.413 trillion,$1.294 trillion,$1.299 trillion,$1.100 trillion, and $680 billion.

When Bush left office, there were 28.2 million people on food stamps.

Obama fixed that. There are now 44.7 million people on food stamps.

When Bush left office, median annual income was $55,204. per year.

Obama fixed that. Median annual income is now $50,678, down 8.2%.

You are probably right. Obama just needs more time.

At least we get to keep our doctors and our health plans if we like them.

That's an improper analogy.

The holocaust was a specific historic event. You are comparing it to multiple policy matters with dynamic ramifications both in the past and present, the effectiveness of which are debatable.

Whether Bush committed and was convicted of a historic crime is not the same as assigning blame for present conditions based on this or that policy.

You and Buck should seek refugee status and move away from the U.S.
Maybe to Texas.
The El Paso Intelligence Center is led by DEA and affiliated with Cabinet for Homeland Security.

It collects tactical intelligence which is used by federal law enforcement.

U.S. Department of Justice recommended establishment of this intelligence center on the southwest border.

It is staffed by representatives of DEA, the U.S. Customs Service, and officers from 15 federal agencies.

Why should he? Fox News reported a story from the El Paso Intelligence Center about a DEA led questioning of 230 illegal immigrants as to why they've come here. You staunchly dismissed the entire point simply because you saw "Fox"....

No soup for you!
