In Topic: Right wing nut jobs come up with alternative to the terrible mean ol ACA

Of course fiscal conservatives in this country could choose to establish a health care system similar to those utilized by the rest of the civilized world. Health care systems that cost significantly less and provide better health outcomes for their citizens, but why bother when you can just waste billions on the current system that favors corporate profits instead?

The only reason this is still being debated is because of people like heel and G5.



In Topic: Babies don't actually come from the tummy

This is the direct result of parents choosing ignorance over sexual education for their children.

State representatives like this one whose knowledge level of sexual reproduction barely exceeds "babies come from storks" are now making life and death decisions for women.

Is anyone surprised when told this guy hails from Texas where the state republican leadership to this day views teaching critical thinking skills to children as a bad thing?

In Topic: Brian Williams Out of Work, O'Reilly Lying and Still On the Job

26 February 2015 - 06:20 AM

Two obvious reasons that O'Reilly will survive these instances of lying:

1) O'Reilly has been employed for almost two decades to advocate for GOP policies by distorting events and appealing to the prejudices of his viewers. O'Reilly's employers are well aware that restricting Bill to truth and reason would make his job of shilling for the republicans difficult if not impossible to accomplish.

2) Faux's loyal viewers are not interested in learning the truth. They tune in to have their biases confirmed and reinforced. O'Reilly does this better than anyone else at the station. Since his lies were revealed his viewership numbers have increased by 10%.
