    It's awesome, Trump gets to mock both Bush and himself in one succinct gesture.

    But Brecht, that raises the question of why someone that has probably spent most of his life highfiving - has problems lo-fiving ?

    is there no end to the inability of men that come from that 'family'.. were they bred in boxes ?

    In terms of pure psycho-delusional-unhingedness, 1st would be Rick Santorum, 2nd, Ben Carson...
    on top of being a creationist, he's a climate change denier (no surprise).
    it's probably time to question his medical creds if this fool can't even get basic, obvious science correct.

    Oh yes, Mike Huckabee... did you see the videos of him getting fucking clowned about her objection to gay marriage on "religious freedom" grounds when she is perfectly fine with issuing divorce decrees with no qualms. He was tying himself in fucking knots like the dumb fat fool that he is...

    I fucking :ana: at the part where this idiot tries to counter people saying that Jesus never said anything about homosexuality. He [mis]quotes some dumb bible verse explaining men and women leaving their homes to be together and then says basically Jesus did talk about gay marriage by...err... not...talking about gay marriage? Dude is a clinical buffoon...

    Well, blacks have done worse under Obama than any other group.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...loyment-recovery-under-obama-black-americans/


    Beyond that, Obama has been pushing the Trans Pacific Partnership (and so has Hillary). It's selling us off to corporations forever.

    http://www.cnn.com/2015/06/15/polit...linton-pushed-the-trade-bill-she-now-opposes/


    The idea that one political party is the problem, while the other is the solution, is beyond delusional. They're both utterly rotten to the core.

    WTF? (see below - high-ranking Senator speaking about TPP secrecy)

    Anyone who blindly accepts the government's / big-pharma's position on health-related issues is a fool.

    Consider these: :ana::eek:

    "Fourteen years ago, a leading drug maker published a study showing that the antidepressant Paxil was safe and effective for teenagers. On Wednesday, a major medical journal posted a new analysis of the same data concluding that the opposite is true."


    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/17/h...s-unsafe-for-teenagers-new-analysis-says.html


    "FOR two generations, Americans ate fewer eggs and other animal products because policy makers told them that fat and cholesterol were bad for their health. Now both dogmas have been debunked in quick succession.

    First, last fall, experts on the committee that develops the country’s dietary guidelines acknowledged that they had ditched the low-fat diet.

    On Thursday, that committee’s report was released, with an even bigger change: It lifted the longstanding caps on dietary cholesterol, saying there was “no appreciable relationship” between dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol.

    Americans, it seems, had needlessly been avoiding egg yolks, liver and shellfish for decades.

    Way bigger than that.

    Official advice to avoid dietary fats, and eat low-fat foods instead (with added sugar) wrecked many millions of people's health. (and profited big pharma / big agriculture tremendously)

    It also increased obesity, increased expensive pharmaceutical use (Statins are the world's most prescribe drug - http://www.forbes.com/sites/matthew...-use-of-other-cholesterol-medicines-declines/) etc etc.


    "The 1992 edition of the food pyramid, assembled by the Department of Agriculture, recommended up to 11 daily servings of bread, cereal, rice and pasta." :eek:

    All scientific facts/data/information are, by default, tentative. Meaning, when newer information is learned or discovered, theories, hypotheses etc are all revised to fit the new knowledge. This included dietary science.

    There was once a day when we all thought the earth was flat and that it was the center of the universe (which is only true relative to our perspective, since we can only look outwardly... so the moon is also the center, as is Venus and Pluto, etc) and there weren't nearly the problems known about smoking...

    to simply laugh at data being revised as people blindly following or being fools, constitutes a massive misunderstanding of how the scientific method works. What you're laughing at now, about Paxil for instance, can easily be debunked further in time to say that it IS healthy after all... or that eating fewer eggs is the better plan...

    Tentative... that's how it works and that's why it's fucking awesome... doesn't deal in facts... it deals in observations...
