Nobel laureate and former NIH Director Varmus explains how 45's proposed cuts would extinguish the US lead in biomedical research and innovation.

And of course the proposed cuts to NOAA, NSF, EPA etc. are even worse.

The GOP policy goal is — apparently — to make United States as a nation as stupid as the stupidest people in the GOP.

Back to the nuke thing for a minute...

as-us-modernizes-nuclear-weapons-smaller-leaves-some-uneasy


"Gen. James E. Cartwright, a retired vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who was among Mr. Obama’s most influential nuclear strategists, said he backed the upgrades because precise targeting allowed the United States to hold fewer weapons. But “what going smaller does,” he acknowledged, “is to make the weapon more thinkable.”
As Mr. Obama enters his final year in office, the debate has deep implications for military strategy, federal spending and his legacy.
The B61 Model 12, the bomb flight-tested last year in Nevada, is the first of five new warhead types planned as part of an atomic revitalization estimated to cost up to $1 trillion over three decades. As a family, the weapons and their delivery systems move toward the small, the stealthy and the precise."


Edit: Meant to add that this trend when combined with a President who has stated he might use them is a bad situation.

Not only that, Kris, but the price tag. We could buy a lot
of healthcare for that amount. . .

I agree.
If Biden had run I would have voted for him.

I've even said that before.

I don't really dig all the political name calling that sometimes accompanies these threads, but:

1) Some people (NutAgain) actually try to elevate the conversation and keep it focused on the issues at hand.

2) Political discourse has it's place, even on a climbers forum.

3) Let's face it, some of the issues facing our nation are more important than climbing.



Clip of the day: Ted Koppel tells Hannity that he's bad for America to his face because "You have attracted people who have determined that ideology is more important than facts."


Go Ted.

Joe Biden on Abortion

Vice President; previously Democratic Senator (DE)





Sub-sections under Abortion: •Voting Record
•Other issues under Abortion




I accept church rule personally, but not in public life
Q: What role your religion has played in your own personal views on abortion?
RYAN: I don't see how a person can separate their public life from their private life or from their faith.

BIDEN: My religion defines who I am. And I've been a practicing Catholic my whole life. And it has particularly informed my social doctrine. Catholic social doctrine talks about taking care of those who can't take care of themselves, people who need help. With regard to abortion, I accept my church's position that life begins at conception. That's the church's judgment. I accept it in my personal life. But I refuse to impose it on equally devout Christians and Muslims and Jews and--I just refuse to impose that on others, unlike my friend here, the congressman. I do not believe that we have a right to tell other people that women can't control their body. It's a decision between them and their doctor, in my view. And the Supreme Court--I'm not going to interfere with that.

#FAKEchristians...


If you're a supposed "Christian", then you would NOT vote for someone in support of abortion...

Right???...

So to have voted for Joe Biden would have been to vote FOR, abortion...

Right???...



Thus the reason so many SUPPOSED "CHRISTIANS" voted for Trump???...(Like some here said they would on the ABORTION basis alone)...

Right???...

Or so some have claimed...

No.
It's already the law.
However, I still don't believe in abortion.
Except in certain special cases

Biden would have been OK

But I lost all respect after I found out that he sold out to the Banksters and made it impossible for College loans to be subject to bankruptcy

Biden Backs Legislation Preventing $150 Billion of Student Loan Debt from being Discharged or Renegotiated

if your policies make people suffer, then they are not truly Christian.

Christian/Liberal policies REDUCE Suffering, not increase it

And that's exactly WHY you said you supported and would only vote for TRUMP...

Because he wanted to overturn THAT law (as do many Republicans)...


So to back peddle now is...

back peddling...



EDITED:


You WANTED Trump...

OWN IT!!!...

Not back peddling.

Go check my posts way back before the election
I said I would have voted for Biden if he had run.

And yes, I own it.
I'd rather Trump in Office than
Hillary.

Biden would have been better than either of them.
And if he does run in 4 years I would vote for him.

Commentator Tomi Lahren’s time is apparently over at TheBlaze, according to a new report from the New York Post’s “Page Six.”


Glenn Beck’s network suspended the 24-year-old Lahren’s show, “Tomi,” last week after she called anti-abortion conservatives “hypocrites.”


“I’m pro-choice,” Lahren said during an interview on “The View” earlier this month, “and here’s why: I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think that the government should decide what women should do with their bodies.”

so many hypocrites on the right
