Retweeted by L George@RobLowe @oldpicsarchive This is a photo of a model, but not an actual working plane. It's been debunked.
@drgrist This article discusses how Germany's elec companies are being affected by renewables. https://t.co/JKS0FItkVVWhat's a "melee" you ask? Well folks, it's sure not a riot. No need to think of these white people as irredeemable criminals. Carry on.
Retweeted by L George@soundslikepuget The news stories that I've read from Buzzfeed seem well-sourced.@soundslikepuget The thing is...it's asking if people 'trust' it. I certainly trust it more than I trust Sean Hannity.GO AWAY!!!!!!!!!!! “@TimesLIVE: Lewinsky: I was in love with Clinton http://t.co/Uo8yukTtbT http://t.co/U1cLZAxrXx@soundslikepuget Consistently conservative ppl trust Rush effin Limbaugh but don't trust CBS news? That's ludicrous!!@soundslikepuget I'm talking about relative trust. Look at that graphic. It makes me want to cry.There's something really wrong with ppl who would trust Breitbart more than CNN or the goddamn Washington Post! Idiots!This graphic makes my head spin... “@dcurtis: BuzzFeed is...the only source distrusted by every ideological group. http://t.co/ImYj5nA2xP@owillis She has very 'interesting' timing...Bubby Brister...oh Lord, let's NOT relive that era of @steelers history! #PITvsHOUI'm totally pro science!

Retweeted by L George@Dr_Kalmia With a 7 and 2 year-old!! The only reason we did ok was that my grandparents stepped in, got my mom a car.@Dr_Kalmia Imagine feeding, clothing two kids on that. Plus, when my dad left, he took the only car. We went grocery-shopping by bike.@Dr_Kalmia Maybe it's because we really had no money--my dad was a welder--that was never an issue for me. My dad paid $60/week--$30/kid.@Dr_Kalmia Good luck with all of it. Maybe take up kick-boxing...? ;-) a little stress-relief...@Dr_Kalmia It's hard to be the grown-up...it sounds like you are working hard at it! ;-)@Dr_Kalmia Sorry to unload on you. Divorce can absolutely be the right thing to do, but it takes real work to protect kids from pain.@Dr_Kalmia ...fortune of not remembering all the fighting and petty game playing that my mom did in her anger and pain.@Dr_Kalmia What's amazing is my sister, who is 5 yrs younger, once said, "at least Mom never used us as a weapon." She has the good +@Dr_Kalmia Old, old wounds. And my mom did need more $ -- but her inability to shield me from their fight is hard to forgive.It's really inexcusable to see so many empty seats at @heinzfield for @ESPNMondayNight football game. No matter the @steelers record.You're welcome, @steelers. The game momentum shifted as soon as I tuned in! #TexansVSSteelers@Dr_Kalmia My mom brought me (at 7 yo) and my sister, 2, to the court house during negotiations for more support to guilt my dad.

Retweeted by L George@Dr_Kalmia Talk if it will ultimately help the situation improve, but not unless you are pretty sure it won't make things worse.@Dr_Kalmia It's not good for your child to put yourself in the position of having to deal w/ additional anger and frustration.@Dr_Kalmia Don't know your situation but I can't imagine that being a productive conversation. You need 3rd party-lawyer or mediator.@CoolHipsterName See my last 2 RTs...If the #Steelers don't unleash hell soon, I'm gonna unleash hurl.
Retweeted by L GeorgeThe #Steelers can't stop the run anymore. What's next, Lynyrd Skynyrd can't sing "Free Bird" anymore?
Retweeted by L George@StillCrazy808 Rapid City & Black Hills area is beautiful. Eastern SD is mostly farms, ranches; bird hunting is popular.The name for what @pmarca describes here is 'cronyism,' not 'meritocracy' http://t.co/ACkFUjIrN9 (via @rustyk5) http://t.co/UmSBDhvWp9

Retweeted by L George@science_cow But you are kind of stuck half-way between Cols & Cleveland for big city diversity. Don't recall Akron being very cosmopolitan.@science_cow My mother-in-law lives in Gambier, the town where my husband lived from ~13 until college. I love that part of OH.@science_cow Have you been to Seattle? We are ~30 mins east into the foothills. It's beautiful but far from my W PA hometown & family.@science_cow I mean now!@science_cow Where are you know?@science_cow But I didn't go to school there. I got my MS at Kent State, and I will admit to missing Kent. ;-)@science_cow You miss Columbus OH? I lived there for nearly 6 yrs...don't think I've spent more than 10 mins in last 19 yrs missing it. ;-)You own this @CNN and @FoxNews ==> “@WNTonight: Children of Ebola specialists from Nebraska Medical Center shunned: http://t.co/S5bz2p2fWEWarning Signs of Satanic Behavior.

Retweeted by L GeorgeIn our classrooms, the focus should not be on the acquisition of knowledge, but what we may do with knowledge in the face of ... a question.
Retweeted by L George@StillCrazy808 Most likely a commercial sponsorship deal.Here's what I think. On November 5th, we won't be hearing much about Ebola. THAT'S the cynical part.
Retweeted by L George@Karoli I am so fed up with the both sides bullshit. @Mr_ElectricoA Rams fan reportedly spit on a Ferguson protester after the team's win today, and it was on after that. http://t.co/qhbkjpEYEV

Retweeted by L George@Karoli Giving nurse the OK to travel is the ONLY major error by CDC. Did they have all necessary info before making decision? @FrankBruni@Karoli Did the CDC actually knew how unprotected nurses were when treating the infected patient before giving OK to travel? @FrankBruni.@FrankBruni your failure to acknowledge that the breach in Ebola protocols happened in a PRIVATE FOR-PROFIT hospital is egregious.
Retweeted by L GeorgeIsn't the whole point of private, for-profit concerns the idea that markets will take care of the problem? http://t.co/wI9BWQ3dLY

All wonderful. Don't know South FL well; love Sanibel/Captiva.Meanwhile, Americans willingly accept tens of thousands of preventable gun deaths per year as price of 2nd amendment.
Retweeted by L GeorgeThe best defense against infectious disease = strong public institutions. Which rest on strong economies. Which rest on int’l trade.
Retweeted by L George@DCPlod How about the reasoning I heard once from a woman as to why her daughter had so many kids: to make up for all the aborted babies...@scopedbylarry Remind me to tweet you a picture from my back deck in mid-Aug. That must be ONE time your garden would be less hospitable.@GardenerMiss Yep!Well, except for the 500 or so kids per year who died of measles before the vaccine, @AutismOne You have survivor bias.

Retweeted by L George@suze109 @SalenaZitoTrib So older white voters will continue to have the more power and an undue influence over politics in America.@suze109 @SalenaZitoTrib You should really amend the headline to read 'Older white voters', because that's who (sadly) vote in mid-terms..@FaceTheNation @CBSNews @MarshaBlackburn calling for facts over spin is self-parody at its worst. https://t.co/HGHwi2hWVG@anildash @GabrielaDow @ZURATAMA1324 @ChrisMcEvoy My boys, ages 16 & 12, know that any history account depends on who gets to tell the story
