NASA: 'We've found ANOTHER EARTH'

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/07/23/kepler_telescope_spots_earth_20/

(yes original article headline)

NASA boffins peering through the Kepler space telescope have spotted a huge Earth-like planet that could be home to alien life.

"This is the closest thing we've yet found to another Earth," said Jon Jenkins, Kepler data analysis lead at NASA's Ames Research Center.

At a press conference on Thursday, NASA unveiled Kepler 452b, an alien world orbiting a star very similar to our Sun in the constellation Cygnus. The planet is said to be perfectly placed in its solar system to be habitable.

Specifically, 452b lies in what's called the Goldilocks Zone, which is the distance a planet needs to be from its star for liquid water to exist on its surface. Water is, of course, an essential building block of life as we know it.

I think Jeb Bush just lost the election...phase out Medicare ? HUH?!

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10027002452

my bottom line is, who is going to keep the Republican from sitting in the White House ?

The worst Democrat is better than the best Republican, just saying.

At this moment, I'm going to vote for Senator Sanders in the Florida primary, and I hope he can win. I have my doubts. He has a big hill to climb, and the nastiness from the other side has only started (the smear about him being a Nazi, gimmeafugginbreak). The communist smear is coming any day now, or maybe it's already started.

To be clear, I'll take Governor O'Malley also. Secretary Clinton works for me, as well. As I said, the worst Democrat is better than the best Republican. I'll take Secretary Clinton over, oh, Senator Lisa Murkowski from AK. Yes, I know Sen. Murkowski is not running but you get my point.

With a Cell Phone and a Meat Cleaver, Graham Responds to Trump

http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/cell-phone-meat-cleaver-graham-responds-trump-n396631

The day after Donald Trump read GOP rival Lindsey Graham's cell phone number to the public, the South Carolina senator offered a dramatic, tongue-in-cheek video response entitled "How to Destroy your Cell Phone."

In the video from IJReview, Graham takes a meat cleaver, a golf club, a microwave, a blender, lighter fluid, and various other instruments to a small black flip-phone.

"Or if all else fails, you can always give your number to the Donald," he says at the end.

"This is for all the veterans," he adds, right before hurling a cell phone offscreen.

F*** YOU, Rubio, talk about class, pffttt!!!!

We already have a president now that has no class. We have a president now, that, you know, does selfie stick videos, that invites YouTube stars there, you know, people who eat cereal out of a bathtub.”

I really value our seniors at DU

I really do. The patience, the maturity, the wisdom, the knowledge, the kindness. I know all of you have to endure the occasional ageist remark or joke, and I wince at those too. Thank you for being here and sharing your wisdom with us. On a side note, there was an 80 year old gentleman who was coming here but said a few, um, unfortunate things. He said he was leaving. I wish he didn't leave, I had a soft spot for him. Oh well.

Whippersnapper: urban or rural legend, or people use to say that ?

Do some people still say that, being serious ?

I know we joke around and say "you whippersnapper" but did people REALLY say that ?

I never heard it growing up, except in jest.

President Obama Perfectly Explains Why Republicans Are Stuck With Donald Trump

http://www.politicususa.com/2015/07/21/president-obama-perfectly-explains-republicans-stuck-donald-trump.html

During his final interview with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, President Obama offered a piece of media criticism that perfectly explained why Republicans are stuck with Donald Trump.

Obama was discussing the media with Stewart when he said, “The media are a bunch of different medias. Some get on my nerves more than others. What I’m most concerned about is not that it’s unfair or too tough on government … but that it gets distracted to shiny objects and doesn’t always focus on the big tough choices and decisions.”

The President was talking about the media, but he also nailed one of the dynamics that is fueling the rise of Donald Trump. The media loves celebrities and controversy. They media is drawn to these cheap forms of news coverage like a baby to a shiny object. Donald Trump knows how to do two things very well.

Trump knows how to appeal to Republican primary voters by speaking their extremist language, and he knows how to be the shiny object that the media can’t say no to. The country does have a serious decision coming up over who will be the next president, but instead of discussing issues, our corporate media is head over heels for Trump’s antics.

Hey Republicans! "National Socialism" was NOT left wing...despite that word....

and Senator Sanders is NOT a National Socialist (Nazi) by any stretch of the imagination.

Senator Sanders is on the LEFT, and the NSDAP (the Nazis back in the day) were on the RIGHT. The Neo-Nazis are STILL on the RIGHT.

Understand now ? So stop with the phony baloney BS propaganda about Senator Sanders. Thanks.
