Re: “The Saturday open line

Sound, my guess is nobody is continuing to follow this thread, but just in case, you might consider the possibility that the assumption that 'they don't believe in the same things we believe in, might need correction. Most veterans probably do believe in some of the same things in which i believe and in which many people who claim to be 'we' claim to believe, namely the american way of life. that starts with freedom of religion (see Amendment One of the US Constitution). People who question the beliefs of people who don't attend the church that they attend on Christmas and Easter may not necessarily act in accordance with their own stated beliefs. My experience has been that very few really do. If one is truly an American, one would respect and honor those who share our American Constitution and the values that shape our society, and we would particularly honor those who serve through their actions, not just strut, preen, and try to sucker donations out of people by playing to their fears and out of corporations by doing their bidding.

PS, Olphart, we continued to get medium heavy rain throughout the night, off and on, and into this morning. i have seen much heavier rain before, but this last day has been pretty impressive. More striking, to me, was the amount of lightning. we saw extended periods in which the sky seemed to stay lit, continuously, by lightning dancing and shooting.

Re: “The Saturday open line

1. Conway has had several episodes of substantial rain this afternoon and evening. nobody building arks or anything, but a fair amount of rain.
2. presently watching Samantha Bee's not the white house correspondent's dinner. pretty funny, to me.
3. what i did for weather prediction prior to the internet was to listen to my grandmother. she was more accurate looking out the window than professional weather people were at the time.

Re: “O'Reilly's fall

Knowing what processes are at work in a person's mind is difficult or even impossible, often even for the person him or herself. Although i don't mean to quibble over details, as i largely agree with Tony and Olphart, as well as with Gene, could we consider the idea that money can't buy one love. Love of money can buy one sex or other pretenses of love. A relevant distinction that might get a stifled giggle out of Melania.

Re: “Huckabee seeks laughter

DBI, orval faubus served as governor of arkansas for about 10 to 12 years, give or take a few, at as i remember $10,000 per year, only to retire to a house he built that was valued at the time at $300,000, again as i remember. i agree that we should do all we can to have huck identified as a floridian, but in any event, he would not be the first snake oil salesperson to have polluted our society.

Re: “Healthy crowd descends on Capitol for March for Science

R biter, you were asked to provide specifics. do you have any, or are you still just yapping? use a magnifying glass for what? most computers and hand-held devices will allow you expand a display, which should make the use of a magnifying glass unnecessary, if you are intending to say that you found spelling errors by examination of images of sines [sic] using a magnifying glass. please consult with the fifth grade graduate recommended above, but you might be able to get a reasonably intelligent first grader to show you.

Re: “Healthy crowd descends on Capitol for March for Science

Silverback, being stupid in public should not necessarily be embarrassing, unless that stupidity includes the failure to keep one's stupidity to one's self. which brings us to the r biter. ok, dude/dudette, you opened the discussion. as olphart noted, "cellebrate" was very likely a reference to cell science, not necessarily microbiology, but almost certainly, in context a reference to the science favored by the author of the sign. So, are you going to limit your display of command of the english language to some vague claim, aka 'alternate facts,' or are you going to put forward specifics, i.e., data? Just on the off chance that you were not present at any of the marches for science yesterday, many signs can be viewed online. Be careful, as many of the signs carried yesterday contained similar plays on words, so when your pick your examples, you might want to get someone who managed to graduate from the fifth grade to check your submission for you. That comment might sound harsh to you, but if you did not comprehend 'cellebrate' in context, you have been warned. if you still don't understand, but are willing to engage in a discussion of the above, let us know, and we will explain. if, as i anticipate, you simply don't want to have to think about the matter, please at least realize that the water is much deeper in the other end of the pool. Finally, yeah, olphart, tough to avoid being preachy in the presence of so much emptiness. nature abhors a vacuum.
