re: #110 MsJ Starr never thought something like this would happen to him, but it did, and I think it's a fitting end to his career to be exposed as someone who didn't give a sh*t what happened to women ...

There’s a reason Donald Trump wanted people to pay attention to his nonsense about the veterans’ donations yesterday. As a reminder for that nonstop train wreck, yesterday Trump finally provided a list that still fell short of the $6 million in donations raised he claimed back in January at …

It's true: my great-grandfather happily left his home and his new bride and son to join the Light Artillery, and participate in a lot of the worst battles in the West: Shiloh and Stones River and Chickamauga and Missionary Ridge. ...

re: #383 Gus Well, honestly what kind of thesis would you start out with? "I believe if we shut down these swollen lanes of constantly-flowing cars, shit will get all fucked-up right around heah." I wonder if Christie works with ...

re: #95 abolitionist Except that, as a private Christian school, they probably have the Get Out of the Fourteenth Amendment Free card of considering all employees to be "ministers." Because ministers can be fired for "not adhering to the church's ...

Gallup Poll: 58% of Republicans Are Young Earth Creationists

Not getting better

On a positive note, whereas the percentage of people who believe in creationism has increased only 2% since 1982, the percentage of those who believe in evolution has increased 6% since then. It's only the (arguably wishy-washy) God-aided evolution position ...

Romney Insists Class Size Is Less Important Than ‘School Choice’

Mitt tells teachers he knows better than they do
5/24/12 10:07:33 pm
Mounting the soapbox as a long-time teacher ... Romney is full of shit. One contrarian study does not balance the overwhelming number of studies that find strong correlations between small class size and student performance. Besides, it's just common sense ...

Gov. Christie Won’t Say If He’s a Creationist

The Republican Party’s total war on science

5/13/11 5:03:02 pm
The sad thing is I don't think Chris Christie actually believes in literal creationism, but he is simply saying what he has to say in order to not upset the Party base. I live in NJ and am appalled that ...
