. Very bizarre Bump. And to answer the original question. She is as American as me. I was also born in the US. End of story.
Here's the story on the duck penis study http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2013/mar/22/tweets/federal-government-funding-study-duck-penises/. If there is no funding for science, how would we know how nature works? I'm sure there there are far more heinous uses for our tax money. But if we decided to eliminate funding for science and the arts, what kind of country are we going to be? We would never go to the moon in this sort of scenario.
I'm good with being more socialist if that's what you want to call it. Slippery slope using that word.We are a representative republic so the legislature you elect makes spending decisions for us. It's the basis for our country.
I love when some say you should run the government like a business. The tripartite government in the US is not like any business I know of. No doubt there's waste but until we change the way money effects elections, that will not change. It's the influence of special interests that creates waste and undue influence.
No thank you. I'm pleased with my current economic philosophy. In doing a quick Internet search, there are many who have serious concerns about Mises' philosophies. 
In my case, my family is decidedly Middle Class and I don't at all think I'm over taxed. Compared with many other nations we are severely under taxed and the result is our crumbling infrastructure, poor education system, extremely high cost of secondary education and the widening gap between the middle class and the wealthy. I am more than happy to pay taxes to help those who need it.  But to keep this on golf, Norman is no different than most pro golfers who are wealthy...
Not sure where to start in commenting on this post. First, not everyone knows that guys Watson's age are cranky and it's ignorant to say so. Watson can be cranky I'm sure but what makes him admirable is his honesty and his integrity. He's a stand up guy. Second, can I ask that you not post like you are texting on your phone? Capitalize the first word of sentences and  use proper punctuation. This will make your posts easier to comprehend. Also, it's respectful to...
I can't (nor can you) speak to how players prepare for this sort of match but having a good partner is vitally important. It's obvious that Spieth and Reed were a great team and being young had a lot of energy. Yet Watson benched them Friday afternoon, instead playing 40+ year old Phil and Keegan Bradley, wiping out Phil for a t least the Saturday AM matches. Watson also said he would play the hot hand and by benching those two he went back on his word.  There's a lot more...
My take exactly. I love Tom Watson as a player but I agree he did a terrible job Captaining this team. It all started when he benched Spieth and Reed on Friday afternoon. What was he thinking? He seemed detached and over his head. I understand that players have to hit shots but building team chemistry is all important in this kind of competition and it seemed the US had little of this.  As far as Phil's remarks, he answered the question presented to him and surely he was...
Fabulous! It's a difficult place to get to but I might just strap my clubs on my back and walk there just to play this beautiful course and the Links.
