You people aren't even on the radar screen.
Who cares what you think?
You mean that a politician’s inability to spell simple words is not an indicator of their low grade intellectual standing?
Obama just can't get any R-S-P-E-C-T .... LFMOA !!
Volkswagen says in a letter to the National Labor Relations Board that the company doesn’t support groups representing some Chattanooga plant workers seeking to intervene in the United Auto Workers appeal of last month’s union vote.
In a one-page letter, Volkswagen Group of America attorney Steven Swirsky said the company “does not believe there is any basis for the motions to intervene to be granted.”
VW against interveners in Chattanooga union vote appeal
by Mike Pare
It looks like VW has just told the majority of their hourly workers, which voted against a union, to “F - off”. The Krauts are nothing if not specialists at interpersonal relationships and living in harmony with their neighbors and fellow workers.
Black scatter infrared monitoring? Sounds like a technician job running a machine rather than research!
Well “Black Scatter” may possibly be . However the research lead to in situ, real time monitoring that had it’s output recorded in real time on a computerized data logger. Another application is dust monitoring in grain elevators, as the sensing element to actuate explosion potential alarms. Automation of the process to eliminate the semi skilled laborer.
jt, We don't need labor unions, but we sure do need morals.
Yeah, I thought so. You also had absolutely nothing to challenge a single post I made, but just simply said I was "accepting the words of scientists on faith". Since you have no evidence of this, because you don't know what I know, and I have no evidence that you understood what I posted (you may correct me there) that is not an accurate statement.
Oh Wow !!! .... 14 whole minutes from challenge to “post time” ... But I see the real problem you have with my post and it had little or nothing to do with science.
You got your feeling hurt because you hold yourself out as very learned in the sciences and you thought I included you with the regular “riff-raff” when I used the “faith and belief” words... LMFAO at your vanity.
BTW ... here is my earlier post and I will highlight the words you need to pay special attention to if you want to comprehend what I said.
Except for the practicing scientist, in their respective fields, the acceptance of their findings and pronouncements is almost entirely based on faith and belief in their truthfulness and testable inerrancy. I would be very willing to bet that most everyone posting here are operating on nothing but faith concerning anything of advanced scientific principles and findings.
Even though I wasn’t necessarily directing the claim of scientific ignorance at you personally you have done little to make me exclude you.
The values of religion have played a major role in the civilization of humans. The human race evolved from hunter gatherers to more community oriented society because of the belief of a higher power. The Bill of Rights were written with the morals and values in the bible. The laws of Islam were based on the Koran. So if you believe in God or not we owe a great amount of gratitude to whomever wrote the ten commandments.
Kind of like Labor Unions in that they served a somewhat useful purpose at one time but as we advance as a rational society we find we don’t really need them anymore... Right?
"Why would the Republicans want to impeach and remove the best weapon for beating the Fleabaggers in 2014 and 2016. He is virtually a one man destruction force of all things left-wing."
Sounds like the "conservative" dribble that was preached by Wayne Root, Dick Morris, and others in 2012. Turned out good for the Republicans that night, didn't it?
They surely misjudged Obama’s “use by date” ... He just wasn’t ripe enough ... However he has now crossed the line between ripe and “overripe”. You can leave him in the fridge but he’s stinking the place up and will soon be discarded along with the clabbered Fleabagger “(m)ilk”.
“Except for the practicing scientist, in their respective fields, the acceptance of their findings and pronouncements is almost entirely based on faith and belief in their truthfulness and testable inerrancy.

Google fresh definitions:
Faith = complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
Belief = trust, faith, or confidence in someone or something.
If you knew anything about science you would know that one does not have to accept the statements of anyone on faith. One can look at the actual evidence. But you never asked. Clearly you think science is based on opinion and nothing more.
The layman can surely look at the actual evidence but if he is not educated in university graduate level sciences and specifically the specialty that you are referencing they most likely do not comprehend what they see. If they are to enter into any discourse concerning that specialty they will have to accept the scientists’ pronouncement primarily on faith and belief.
Have you done research?
I'd say no, given this statement, along with your assertion that the posts I made were junior high level.
Then you would be wrong
I'd accept your identification of the science you have actually done in rebuttal.
One example .... Back scatter infrared monitoring of fine particulate loading released by coal fired electric power plants ... Several Southeastern and Mid-Western power companies ... EPRI ... EPA labs at Research Triangle Park, N.C.
Posting 6th Grade science book quality rifts does not really give a person any substantial credibility on scientific issues.
And yet it was over your head. Telling, don't you think?
It is telling alright .... telling that you seem to be avoiding the question of “what exactly I was “way off” on and would not acknowledge same.” If you are so up on this subject then it should be very easy for you to dispense of such a question very easily ... You could do that ... couldn’t you?
