Refuge for Depressed, Frustrated Democrats

I don't know about you, but I'm thoroughly tired of people like Ann Coulter demeaning the intelligence of Democratic voters. So, to refute her oft-repeated point, I post this...

The Top 10 national universities in the country, along with each district's Representative in Congress...

Harvard University--Michael Capuano (D)
Princeton University--Rush Holt (D)
Yale University--Rosa DeLauro (D)
University of Pennsylvania--Chaka Fattah (D)
Duke University--David E. Price (D)
Stanford University--Anna G. Eshoo (D)
California Institute of Technology--Adam B. Schiff (D)
Massachusetts Inst. of Technology--Michael Capuano (D)
Columbia University--Charles B. Rangel (D)
Dartmouth College--Charles F. Bass (R)

By my count: 9 Democrats, and only 1 (moderate!) Republican.

Two late-breaking addendums...

"On June 21, 2004, 48 Nobel laureates endorsed Kerry as they thought that he would increase the prosperity, health, environment, and security of Americans, attract talented scientists and engineers from abroad; and nurture a business environment that creates quality jobs. They criticized the Bush administration for reducing funding for scientific research, setting restrictions on stem cell research, ignoring scientific consensus on critical issues such as global warming, and hampering cooperation with foreign scientists by employing deterring immigration and visa practices."

"But whites with college and post-graduate degrees believe most abortions should be legal by a resounding 63 percent to 37 percent. On gun control, less well-educated whites split evenly, while well-educated whites strongly support gun control, 66 percent to 34 percent."

So far, research has not shown that there is any permanent damage from CVS in adults. However, it can stunt children's normal eye development if they spend too much time in front of a screen.

Shedding 50 to 100 hairs a day is normal. When a hair is shed, it is replaced by a new hair from the same follicle and the growing cycle starts again. Scalp hair grows about one-half inch a month.

Symptoms of eyestrain are eye irritation (red, watery or dry eyes), eye fatigue (tired, aching heaviness of the eyelids or forehead), difficulty in focusing, and headaches. However, eyestrain does not result in permanent eye damage.

Having eyestrain does not mean you need to stop using your eyes or that permanent damage will result.

Eyestrain will not permanently damage the eyes or cause a loss of vision.

But eyestrain rarely causes eye damage.

Luckily, the studies I have read show that there is no medical damage caused by computers.

As bothersome as these symptoms are, there is no evidence of permanent damage from prolonged use of VDTs. Numerous tests have shown no relationship between computer use and cataracts, retinal damage, or permanent nearsightedness. The strain computer usage places on eye muscles can, however, cause a lot of unnecessary discomfort.

Fortunately, there is no evidence that eyestrain caused by computers results in permanent vision damage.

Using computers for extended periods can cause visual discomfort, headaches and vision challenges. It is very unlikely that you will suffer permanent changes or damage to your eyes.

Eyestrain is an annoying symptom but it does not mean that continual work at a video display terminal will damage one's eyes.

OK, I'll bite...

Are the above comments related to libertarianism or atheism or anything else associated with this blog's themes?

We think you're stupid because you are stupid. Just like Coulter suggests. For example, Libertarian Defender, it's Democrat Party, not Democratic Party. Both the Democrat Party and the Republican Party are democratic. Sheesh.

GeezLouise, man. You have alla that cr@p on atheism, yet, no followers. Naughty-naughty, Mr. Whorizontal. Lemme give you some lessons from the Trinity AND then if you don't like'm, you can certainly delete'm TILL the Warning comes --- If God doesn’t exist, why do you hate Him so much? If God does exist, why don’t you follow us Home to Heaven Above if you‘re gonna croak as I am? How long do we have to enjoy this finite existence? 77ish, measly years? Compared to the length and breadth of eternity, 77ish years is faaar LESS than a nanometer in the whole, bloody, universe. Why don’t we have a BIG-ol, rokk-our-holy-soxx, party-hardy celebrating our resurrection for many eons? Heaven TOTALLY kicks-ass for eternity. Oddly enough, God’s odd, yet, aren't we? Thank you proFUSEly, for the wick is running out on U.S. _thewarningsecondcoming.com_
