Boehner: Tea party and GOP aren't that different

(CNN) - House Speaker John Boehner said Tuesday the tea party and conservative Republicans are basically one in the same.

As establishment Republican candidates try to fend off a series of tea party challengers in Tuesday's midterm primaries, Boehner sought to quell the apparent divide between the two factions in his caucus.

"I think the tea party has brought great energy to our political process," the Ohio congressman said when asked about Tuesday's contests.

"You get in these primary elections – they are hard-fought battles and sometimes – listen, there is not that much, not that big a difference between what you call the tea party and your average conservative Republican," he said, pointing to the GOP's near-unanimous opposition to Obamacare, tax increases and an overbearing federal government.



This is why Republicans will lose big this fall and will lose Presidency for the foreseeable future ..

Krugman: When Government Intervention Works

Brad Plumer, an editor at Vox, tells us an important, little-known tale. It begins with things going badly: "Back in the 1980s and '90s," Mr. Plumer wrote earlier this month, "many fisheries in the U.S. were in serious trouble. Fish populations were dropping sharply. Some of New England's best-known groundfish stocks - including flounder, cod, and haddock - had collapsed, costing the region's coastal communities hundreds of millions of dollars."

So the government got involved. But we know that government is always the problem, never the solution, so you know what came next.

Or maybe you don't. In fact, government intervention has been a big success. Many fisheries have rebounded, to the benefit of the fishermen as well as consumers. (Mr. Plumer's article, titled "How the U.S. Stopped its Fisheries From Collapsing," can be read here).

Fighting climate change isn't really all that different from saving fisheries; if we ever get around to doing the obvious, it will be easier and more successful than anyone now expects.

Scientist Calls Out Daily Caller's "Complete Distortion" Of Her Biodiversity Study

The Daily Caller's claim that "global warming is increasing biodiversity" is a "complete distortion" of a peer-reviewed study according to its lead author, who actually found that invasive species are changing local species compositions at an alarming rate, while the planet faces a period of mass species extinction.

Man-made global warming is having drastic impacts on biodiversity around the world, putting species at risk and driving mass extinction according to several studies. As climate changes, species are driven out of their primary habitats into different regions where they can't always adapt. As a result, the globe is currently experiencing the worst rate of species die-offs since the end of the dinosaur age, and studies show that climate change could further cause an extinction rate of up to one-third of the world's flora and fauna species.

The Daily Caller's Michael Bastasch published a May 15 article that contradicts this basic concept, titled "Global Warming Is Increasing Biodiversity Around The World." The article claims: "A new study published in the journal Science has astounded biologists: global warming is not harming biodiversity, but instead is increasing the range and diversity of species in various ecosystems."



Yeah right, Climate Change increases biodiversity by drowning everything along the coastline ..

Free Press activist: Ted Cruz is confused about what ‘net neutrality’ even means

Texas conservative Sen. Ted Cruz (R) said in a statement on Tuesday that the Federal Communications Commission should be stripped of its ability to regulate net neutrality.

“Congress, not an unelected commission, should take the lead” on Internet policy, he said.

Matt Wood, policy director for the Internet freedom group Free Press, told Raw Story that Cruz’s suggestions about the law are based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the situation, and that the lawmaker’s proposal would make Internet freedom vulnerable to the interests of powerful corporations like AT&T and Comcast.

After years of wrangling over whether Internet providers could create so-called “fast lanes” for their content, the FCC bunted on Thursday. The regulatory commission passed “Protecting and Promoting the Open Internet,” a set of preliminary rules meant to protect net neutrality, but leaving broad swaths of policy open-ended and asking for public discussion.

Activists on all sides of the question have made their cases for weeks. Internet Service Providers and their supporters like Cruz would like to keep regulations off the books altogether, allowing the companies to set their own policies with regards to broadband. They argue that the FCC doesn’t have the jurisdiction to impose rules on ISPs.


“eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.”

For people with Type 2 diabetes, eating two large meals a day may be better than consuming the same number of calories in six small meals.

Some diabetes experts recommend small meals as a better way to control metabolism; others believe eating three larger meals is better. Some believe it makes little difference one way or the other.

Czech researchers randomly assigned 54 diabetics ages 30 to 70 to a 12-week diet of either two or six meals a day. Both groups ate the same number of daily calories. Then the groups switched diets for another 12 weeks. The study appears online in Diabetologia.

The differences were not dramatic, but compared with those eating six meals a day, those who ate just breakfast and lunch reduced their weight and waist circumference. Those eating fewer meals also had improved fasting glucose levels, lower liver fat content and better insulin sensitivity.
