Apr 28 DavidC commented on Baltimore: Hillary Wants an Investigation into Police Brutality, Rand Paul Wants an Investigation into Single Parents.
Whatever police brutality exists in Baltimore is being done by a majority black force, with a black police chief, a black mayor, and majority black political structure.

Can we stop making this about race already?

Instead of making martyrs out of criminals, how about we focus on the people who actually want to be part of a civilized society. You don't see Code Pink looting stores. These are not protesters, they are just opportunistic thugs.
Nov 24, 2014 DavidC commented on Ferguson Grand Jury Brings No Charges Against Officer Darren Wilson in the Death of Mike Brown.
All the evidence is public - does anyone dispute the physical evidence? What difference would a trial make other than wasting a pile of money.
Nov 24, 2014 DavidC commented on Ferguson Grand Jury Brings No Charges Against Officer Darren Wilson in the Death of Mike Brown.
Did anyone listen to the statement? There was due process, the officer was found not guilty of a crime. Sometimes it's not racism, just a guy trying to do his job.
Oct 31, 2013 DavidC commented on Obama Mocks Climate Change Hecklers.
That oil is coming out of the ground one way or another - it will get to the US via rail or trucks if there is not enough pipeline capacity or it will go to China in tankers. Unless the whole lot of Americans are suddenly going to adopt the lifestyle of a 'developing nation' and the rest of the world stops having babies - its all just shuffling deck chairs on the Titanic.

The Union of Concerned Scientists is an activist group - not an unbiased scientific consensus.

While I'll concede that GMO crops are an environmental nightmare - they are a necessity for a planet with 9 billion+ people - the idea that they are unhealthy - or that organic food is some sort of panacea (or a realistic alternative for 9 billion people) is just a fantasy

Anti-GMO is anti science - there are so many better causes to devote your time and energy to

Hopefully this is the future, and the cruelty & environmental nightmare that is factory farmed meat will come to an end.

The Young Turks has had a members only 3rd hour for a long time now
Dec 28, 2012 DavidC commented on If Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Are So Important, Why Create Financial Disincentives to Pursue Their Study?.
I'm Canadian so the issues are a bit different - but honestly I would prefer my tax dollars to go into subsidizing STEM degrees and not Liberal Arts. Community colleges offer all the same courses and for a lot less money - let the non-wealthy Liberal Arts taking students go there.
