Re: Establishment scientists not deserving of respect

Oh Steve! And here I was, not but a week ago, advancing the theory that you believe most of what you say.

Ignore list FTW.

Re: Snip Snip Edition (Emily Bazelon & Hanna Rosin)

You accuse arrogance by making an arrogant statement?

It still doesn't work, Matt. I don't mean to be contrary -- just trying to be helpful. It *is* odd that you would feel compelled to be...

Re: Snip Snip Edition (Emily Bazelon & Hanna Rosin)

Re: Snip Snip Edition (Emily Bazelon & Hanna Rosin)

Honestly, I think it's just a signpost about how much people try to enforce conformity on the parenting process.

Hence the need to weigh in on things that we aren't terribly involved in --...

Re: Snip Snip Edition (Emily Bazelon & Hanna Rosin)

We just need to stroke the conversation until we've reached a firm consensus.

You've read the same threads I have, you can make up your own mind about whether the people attempting to derail all conversation were primarily left or right.

Not according to the polling. That's all I'm saying. Declaring it dead is awfully premature.

Re: Americans can go about their business, democrat HCR is dead

With public support (http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/2009/08/how-to-poll-on-public-option.html) seeming fairly high for reform in general, and a vote advantage in the legislature -- this seems like...

Re: Irreducibly Complex Edition (John McWhorter & Michael Behe)

You know, I've been mean on these forums here and there. Glib, finger pointing. Etc. I shouldn't drink coffee and comment at the same time.

Re: 'Roid Rage Edition (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Re: The Week in Blog: Uninvited Edition (Tim Fernholz & Matt Lewis)

Pisc, how are you missing the obvious point?

The 98% might reflect the fact that a *huge* plurality of blacks simply believe that the GOP is beholden to racists.

Re: The Arrest of Henry Louis Gates, Jr. (Emily Bazelon & Farai Chideya)

It's insincere to draw an equivalence between someone with government power using the law to unfairly punish a private citizen and the citizen being punished.
