Re: “UPDATE: Sandy Hook massacre a hoax? Two Arkansas candidates seem to think so

Is that the real Eddie Moser commenting above? You are not helping yourself with "This is Eddie Moser. I would first like to make sure everyone knows my statement nor stance is the opinion of the Libertarian Party but of my own. I also was clear later on in the post that Hoax was the wrong wording to use. I think there has been a lot of miss-information regarding the Sandy Hook incident. I personally believe there are questions that are legitimate and have not been answered by authorities that is an acceptable answer. I apologize for using the word Hoax as again it isn't the correct representation of my stance on it. My opinions also were not formed based on the one video but on everything I have seen and read. I also do not think the moon landing was faked. I have many questions about answers the government has provided including Benghazi and the IRS scandal. Again, I apologize for erroneously using the word Hoax."

Re: “Nate Silver predictions and why they matter to Democrats

Too bad Pryor is making the same mistakes as Lincoln - moving to the right and dampening any possible enthusiasm from democrats who might stay home out of their lack of enthusiasm

Re: “DCC director called in to Beebe office: UPDATE

Why did the governor wait until a Dem Gaz article to embarrass Arkansas before calling the DCC director on the carpet? This particular story about Darrell Dennis has been known for several weeks.

Re: “The Republican war on food stamps

There was a story on NPR recently about crop insurance that benefits big Agriculture at taxpayer expense. Conservatives want to cut government spending on programs that help individual poor people, but are gung-ho about spending on subsidies to corporations. http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2013/05/3…

Re: “Live, it's Saturday night

Sounds like "dilbit" was the crude in the Pegasus pipeline http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/31/a…

Bad news about dilbit:
http://www.policyalternatives.ca/publicati… "What is already obvious, however, is that dilbit is far more difficult and costly to clean up.

Cleaning Up Dilbit

The Kalamazoo spill was the first time that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) had to deal with a dilbit spill of this size into water. Ralph Dollhopf, EPA incident commander for the spill, told the Kalamzoo Gazette (July 24, 2011) that responders are “writing the book” on how to deal with dilbit.

According to the NTSB’s final report, only two days after the spill the denser bitumen had separated from the dilutants in the dilbit and sunk to the bottom of the river bed, covering about 40 kilometres. Meanwhile, the dilutants -- containing benzene, toluene, and micro-polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) -- began off-gassing in the area, causing symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, headaches, coughing, and fatigue in 60% of the local population. Oil spill expert Riki Ott recently told a Vancouver Island audience (see Sept.-Oct. Watershed Sentinel) that micro-PAHs are major health hazards, causing cancer, asthma, hormone and reproductive problems by “jamming immune system and DNA functions.”
