If any of the breaking stuff is true....
Crazy Ass Roy Moore is in trouble down in Alabama!



And I hope so, because he is a weenie of the highest order.

The Washington Post is standing by their story.  Moore's campaign is denying it because they say he's been married for decades and it would have come out by now if it had really happened.  Not a strong argument at all but I hope it didn't happen.

Why is it fake news?  Because Roy Moore says it is fake news ?  Nobody else does so, apparently.  The liberal media are all over it.  Fox is merely quoting Moore.  McConnell and a chorus of GOP senators say Moore should withdraw if these allegations are true.  So they are taking it seriously.

The person running the project, usually a faculty member, writes the proposal to National Science Foundation or Exxon or whatever and is fundamentally responsible for the research project. Grad student research assistants, staff, and often undergraduate interns are included in the funding proposal and contract. About 50% of the funding is committed to overhead. That pays for the  buildings and administration. Often teaching assistantships come out of overhead unlike research assistants but in my case and many others the subject you are teaching is experimental and funded by Sea Grant or a private company or non profit. (I was developing a new undergrad curriculum in Ocean Engineering at the time and was teaching the first year of some subjects while hiring new faculty). This sort of thing is often the case as new subjects are being developed all the time and teaching assistants and young faculty are likely to be involved with outside funding.

Sorry about the subject change, responding to earlier conversation.
It seems very unlikely to me that the ladies are making the stories up.
It takes serious courage to come forward with such accusations.
I thought Roy Moore was about lobsters.
I few minutes on Google and I know better.
Does this very experienced politician not know it is the Democratic
Party and not the "Democrat" party ? Is this some sort of childish
language manipulation? This man is not in a position to play word
games.

It is standard usage for bigoted Republicans to talk about the "Democrat party".  I know Bob Dole did it all the time.  I can't remember if he invented the practice.

Thanks for the explanation of how the grad outside funding works, Damon. I knew what conversation you were responding to!

Yeah...for me Roy Moore was my 8th grade math teacher.  And lobsters.  The one in Alabama sounds like bad news and I agree that it is very hard for victims to come forward and is most likely quite true.

We've had this discussion before, Damon. It's been around a lot longer than Dole, as another has suggested.

I use it as a sort of filter. When I hear someone talking about the "Democrat Party" I know they are an ignorant dope and I don't listen to them any more. 

If conservatives want to be taken seriously, they would abstain from using it.

No, it has not. Typical rightist "fake news" doubt-seeding.

And --  "When I hear someone talking about the "Democrat Party" I know they are an ignorant dope and I don't listen to them any more.

The Joseph and Mary argument in support of
older guys with young girls seems very odd!


“Take Joseph and Mary... Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter.
They became parents of Jesus. There’s just nothing immoral or illegal here. Maybe just a little bit unusual.”

I interpreted Da Man's posting as tongue-in-cheek.

The GOP spent 80 million taxpayer dollars on Ken Starr's years long panty sniffing investigation of Bubba Clinton, finding only a consensual blow job at the end of all that. But, EVERY claim by any woman against a Republican is a slander of the first order.

The GOP spent over 100 million taxpayer dollars investigating Hillary Clinton for everything from killing Vince Foster to personally ordering the attack on Benghazi, and found NOTHING.

When is the investigation of Roy Moore's pedophilia going to commence? Where is Trey Gowdy's select committee on Niger going to convene?

Oh yeah... that's just Democratic Party dirty tricks. The Republicans will open another Hillary investigation before they do anything about the child molesters in their own ranks, and THEY'RE the righteous ones! Yeah... I get it...

Oh, look! Another of Chump's "good guys" is winning for y'All!
Don't you think it's a problem, if:
• You have ever been banned from a mall for bothering children?
• You have to ask her mother permission?
• You are throwing away a coffee-maker to support pedophilia?
• You've ever signed a yearbook after high school (and you're not a teacher)?
