cardshark, actually......yes, they can.

ckbike, I was going to say the same thing, but I figured the science part of that would be lost on the target audience. Good point, though.

I had no idea skunks, bats and raccoons were converting to Judaism. Good to know. ;-)

UserName, you raise a good point. Why bother doing anything to address any perceived problem like this when one can just write it off as God's will? The fact that many are eagerly awaiting their day o more »

Many of the folks who laugh about this stuff, deny humanity has had any effect on climate and refuse to be bothered with it have kids. Someday, their kids or their kids' kids or their kids' kids' kids more »

Yeah, so let's just ignore it. Someone else can deal with it if it becomes a larger issue.

I love the irony of "small government" advocates asking for more laws and stricter penalties on common people for minor crimes.

Oops, my bad.....it looks like Texas has now surpassed Mississippi.

It's not wrong. Check the statistics. The south - paticularly those states where abstinence-only education has been pushed hard by the Christian right - has far higher rates of teen pregnancy. The GOP more »

I actually remember passing the kid in the Hollister hoodie and the girl in the purple jacket on the way to my train yesterday. I didn't really take more note of them, so I have no idea what they look more »

Another observation: it's inetersting how the right doesn't like any big government except for the big government they like. They don't like the big government that gives out food, clothing and housin more »

I find it interesting how the NRA tells us guns will prevent crime while they are also constantly telling us the very same guns don't commit crimes. Guns won't prevent crimes, but common sense will more »

If I won that much money, I'd delay the public revealing of my identity for as long as I could too.

The link you provided from BS Mountain doesn't mention Obama and states this started happening during the Bush years. Sorry, that's probably inconvenient to the point you were trying to make. Carry more »

If you voted for Romney and now you're complaining about Obama doing this, you're either clueless or hypocritical. Romney and the GOP are just as, if not more, subservient to corporate America as Obam more »

That's a great question and it's a debate we should probably be having. However, to be fair, it's not like Obama is the first re-elected President to do an inauguration.

Pathetic. Glad I didn't vote for him or the other corporate tool he ran against. To anyone who voted Obama or Romney or who continues to help send Republicans and Democrats to DC: thanks. You're part more »

@Kathern, this decision is specifically about cops searching your phone for evidence of a crime. It has nothing to do with medical emergencies or cops "looking for someone to call." It also has nothin more »

Puff puff, pass.
