Before the start of the nearly two hour debate the audience polled 57.3% to 29.9% in favor of believing that Global Warming was a Â“crisisÂ”, but following the debate the numbers completely flipped to 46.2% to 42.2% in favor of the skeptical point of view.

Beware people who regard the distinctions between public and private as a mere legality, and one based on subjective viewpoint at that. In the end, they can define anything private as public, which gives them the right to take it away. And if you lose something you own, well, Â“lossÂ” is a subjective concept as well that does not match real life. Or at least the real life you can understand if you have a whole new mind.
And if that doesn't make you want to click the link, this will:
ItÂ’s a safe bet that people who use the words Â“empowered,Â” Â“communityÂ” and Â“meaningfulÂ” in close proximity do not produce anything you can hold in your hands.

And here comes the heart attack, because I just tried to link to the Olive Garden screed and found that it is gone. Panic sets in. Lilek's main page says the screeds will be reposted in 03/07. Whew. OK, I suppose I can give him some time to rearrange.

There were numerous reasons to remove Saddam Â— 23, according to the Congress that authorized the war Â— but the administration privileged just one, the sensible fear of weapons of mass destruction. That was legitimate and understandable, and would prove effective so long as either a postwar weapons-trove turned up or the war and its aftermath finished without a hitch.
Unfortunately neither proved to be the case. So with that prime rationale discredited, the partisan Congress suddenly reinvented itself in protesting that it had really voted for war on only one cause, not 23. And when the news and evidence both went bad, that lone reason was now pronounced null and void and hardly a basis for war.
