    USA8888, Please explain multivariate central limit theorem to us all. Also I’d like to hear more about Einstein’s Theory of relativity and how it explains the limits of the speed we can travel.
    Then explain how knowing or not knowing that information relates to a persons IQ.

    Also, I’ll show you my college transcripts if you show me your’s. I’m betting that you are going at best a college freshman at a college whose admission requirement is that you can breath.

    and at #5. #11 #16 #21 isssssssssssssss

    SpongeBob :-)

  • Ratboy

    So round two should be starting any minute as Hillary sits befor the house. I wonder if it will get ugly after the joke testimony this morning?

  • Ratboy

    I just went over to Lake Saturday and Sunday and the loons are on that lake too!! :lol:

  • Coffee Steve


    Why hasn’t the million dollar question been asked yet? ” And that question being

    “Did you or did you not deny a plane to be sent to rescue the people at the consulate?”

  • Coffee Steve

    I gatta get my studies ready for tonight so have a great afternoon boys and girls and always remember

    It’s not brains that make you smart, its how well you use what brains you have :mrgreen:

    Later Gators


  • Ratboy

    Democratic member Engle now has echoed Hillary by saying what it reported as is irrelevent just so it dont happen again. So I guess he is ok with telling blatent and known lies to the American people too.

  • usa8888

    PHDINBS–first, let me point to you that “yours” is not spelled “your’s” as you spelled it–a significant grammatical error. Further, there is a difference in person’s reading comic books and the theory of relativty or multivariate statistics, do you understand?????

  • Ratboy

    First Engle says it is not political but then attacks the R’s for not approving funds. :lol:

  • usa8888

    Hey Rat–how does an AR-15 protect your 2nd Amendment rights????


    USA, I’ve never seen a racist comment from conservatives on this site.
    How can you call them non-Independent thinking when you yourself only spout the left sides talking points. You never post a link to prove your points. The same goes for your statement of them being closed-minded. I have seen conservatives on these site say they see others points. But you have never done that. When you can confronted with facts that prove your point wrong, you change tack and attack them on a different front.

    You do understand that the foundering fathers of this country were called anti-government types and religious fanatics? If you believe in independence and true freedom, you can’t believe in big government.

    For you to believe that the five things you listed about GOP members are “some of the worst elements in our society”. You have lead a very sheltered life.

    Ratboy, I really don’t feel like going to New Haven, Conn today. There are over 50 colleges in the Boston area could you pick one of them instead. But if you really want Yale, I’ll go tomorrow.

  • Ratboy

    Whatever and whenever it is convieniant for you. Since it is so easy to do we have no real rush! :lol:

    Obama Government Equal to Population in 1776

    President Obama Monday invoked Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence to justify his expansive view of government, but Jefferson might be surprised to learn that the number of federal employees today is nearly equal to the entire population of the nation in 1776.

    According to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, the current civilian federal workforce, excluding postal service employees, was 2.15 million in 2011. The Census Bureau estimates that in 1776, the entire population of the United States was just a bit higher, at about 2.5 million. The number suggests that every adult man and woman living at the time – at least – would have been needed to staff today’s federal government.

    @apple stinx
    does that mean I was right with my prediction of 1 in the top 25 and 1 in the top 50 ?

  • usa8888

    Right wingers are against Social Security, Medicare, birth control, the EPA, the FDA, the Federal Reserve, etc. No???????????? No wonder you lose elections!!!!!!!!!

  • Ratboy

    who left the door open?

  • Hillbilly

    Lets see who votes for & against. Without knowing what’s in it can’t really say. Be interesting to see if the bill gets 51 votes.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., will introduce legislation Thursday morning to reinstate a federal ban on assault weapons, the senator’s office announced Wednesday.


  • Hillbilly

    Maybe it matters because folks are suppose to tell the truth. You know don’t lie to the people you work for. Yes i know Ratboy already said this. Sorry for repeating it. :???:

    “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest? Or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make” Clinton scolded Johnson, raising her voice.
