    Though it is wrong now, it was debatable at the time, not wrong. The question at the time was whether space was curved or flat; i.e. was there enough mass to complete stop expansion & begin to collapse, or was expansion going to continue asymptotically forever.

    Please don’t feed the troll; that only encourages it.

    Turn the comment around. How do you think the USA is going to remain competitive in the 21st century without strategically paying for this? Other countries will eat our lunch in the technological industries of the near future without it.

    I did. More RW gibberish. Executive orders:
    1. FDR: 3721
    2. Truman: 907
    3. DDE: 484
    4. Reagan: 381
    5. GWB: 291
    6. Obama: 193

    Problem with giving an O-line to Ryan Tannehill is that, once he unwrapped them, you’d have to explain what an O-line does, seeing as he’s never had one before.

    You could implement camps to “re-educate” all those who disagree with you. That would be a Conservative’s dream, wouldn’t it?

    The GOTP is not in favor of either limited or smaller government; that is just one of the many lies it tells. It is in favor of limiting government spending for things its social Conservative wing doesn’t like: entitlements, healthcare, education, infrastructure, etc. It’s gung-ho for increasing spending on things it likes: weapons the military doesn’t even want, tax cuts for the rich, border fences, incarceration, etc. It is also in favor of injecting government into the lives of the people at every possible level if they make decisions the GOTP doesn’t favor. So neither in terms of spending nor in influence is the GOTP in favor of smaller governement.

    Except of course that is exactly what the GOP was claiming: that the Executive willfully ignored repeated pleas for assistance, and in fact ordered the military to stand down, in order to turn attention away from whatever it was the GOP claimed that Obama didn’t want attention paid to. The State Department has already admitted that it handled the situation poorly, so there is no there there. Bottom line: it isn’t a scandal. Bad managment? Maybe. But that certainly doesn’t justify eight investigations, nor the breathless hyperbole engaged in by both Fox News and politicians like Ted Cruz who had hoped to benefit from creating a scandal where none existed. So the GOP has spent inordinate amounts of time and money to valiantly uncover that which has already been known. Well, done, GOP. Well done.

    Interesting. So actual fact-based science is now a Democratic talking point? That would be consistent with much GOTP policy. How about these “talking points:” No one transmits Ebola without being symptomatic. No one has contacted Ebola in the First World who wasn’t a healthcare worker in close contact with an Ebola patient and their bodily fluids. I know the Radical Right doesn’t believe in science, but the fact remains that this is a bone-headed policy which protects no one, but which panders to uninformed hysteria and to the TP wing of Christie’s policy, who have already claimed that Obama wants to infect the U.S. with Ebola as punishment for slavery.

    Conservatives now control 3/4 of the gov’t. This is now their baby. I just hope they don’t expect the Dems to work with them. The game plan they used as a minority to take back Congress (no compromise, lack of bipartisanship, blame, blame, blame) was obviously effective. The Dems would be fools to do anything but follow it. But now Boehner and McConnell get the blame. Obama will catch some of it as well, but because he can’t run again, why do they care? Oh, and good luck with the Tea Party, Mitch; you’ll need it. You can catch and ride a rabid cougar for a while and go really fast, but the problem is that at some point you have to try to get off, and it then turns on you.
