The important thing is that you don't have Kevin "Dow 36,000" Hassett on ignore.
What took you so long? (Or do you just have a high pain threshold?)
watched The Art of the Steal (2009) last night - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1326733/ and, the sad truth is our politicians and deep pockets trump personal liberties, more so today ... with no end in sight. great documentary, to see how, once again our individual rights are being taken away~
So this is the guy with whom you and your buddies here are finding common ground?
Penned in 1999.
Thanks for the link. I'll want to watch that.
The Party of the Dumb will believe anything told to them, even if it was written by someone who can be the dumbest economist of all time:
Was this part of the "Stupidest Man Alive" series or of the "Republican War on Science" series or of the "American Enterprise Institute Quality Research" series? Silly question! It was part of all three. It was when Kevin Hassett called for the USAF to attack France and Switzerland to stop CERN's Large Hadron Collider from going into action.
Business Week should still hide itself from the sun in shame:
American Enterprise Institute "Economist" of Mass Destruction Kevin Hassett Strikes Again (Republican War on Science Department): Atom Smasher Exposes Hole in Earthâs Defenses: The Large Hadron Collider... consumes about the same amount of energy as a large city... could provide evidence of the existence of the Higgs boson, a hypothesized particle that has become known as the God particle.... [T]he colliderâs energy could induce a catastrophic event. A brilliant review of the risks associated with the experiment by University of North Dakota law professor Eric Johnson.... LHCâs high-energy collisions might create a microscopic black hole that would, perhaps over a few years, swallow the Earth.... Oxford Universityâs Toby Ord, a philosopher by training, adds... t may be that the models that we use to make predictions about the possibility of catastrophe are themselves flawed.... Ord estimates that the odds of the LHC producing a disaster are between one in 1,000 and one in 1 million... the likely benefits from this experiment... [cannot]... justify accepting a cost that includes a real risk of the Earthâs destruction.... Right now... [if] the U.S. wanted to stop the LHC experiment, it would have no recourse short of military action...
Live webcam of what happened: LHC creates blackhole, destroys Earth as economist said it would
I'm sure the LHC people would respond with this: "Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak."
Ha ha ha ha. I usually try to respect the opinions of others (even when they are obviously wrong) but when the personal attacks and name callings starts I draw the line.
You mean like when you guys call Obama a clown? You mean like that?
Yeah, and a lot of these idiots now wish they had voted for that old man, and white trash soccer mom, huh?????
