Do not worry about your difficulties with inflation ...

To paraphrase Big Al: “Do not worry about your difficulties [with inflation]. I can assure you mine are still greater.”

“Astronomers have found the first direct evidence of cosmic inflation, the theorized dramatic expansion of the universe that put the "bang" in the Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago, new research suggests.

If it holds up, the landmark discovery — which also confirms the existence of hypothesized ripples in space-time known as gravitational waves — would give researchers a much better understanding of the Big Bang and its immediate aftermath.”

This Awful Man

Related source » Hey, This Is Easy! – waka waka waka: 'via Blog this'
[This related source is recommended in its entirety.]

“Your loyalty, however, to this awful man — this grotesque incompetent, this subversive fraud, this preening and malevolent narcissist, this despiser of American tradition and implacable enemy of everything the U.S.A. was built upon and once stood for — is so unshakeable in its canine fidelity that we are very unlikely indeed to make any progress in this discussion. Either you see what this person is, and what he is really trying to do, or you don’t; I’ve done what I can to open your eyes. If you do see what he really is, and what he is trying to make of America, and can still be so doggedly, reflexively, uncritically defensive of anything and everything he does, then our axioms are so incommensurable that further conversation about any of this is pointless. Even if Barack Obama were literally caught red-handed in an act of brutal murder, I have a feeling that if I were to point it out to you, you’d just tell me about something else that “conservatives” had given George Bush a pass on.

Regarding your last paragraph: this administration will be looked back upon as the final turning point, as the time in history when the arc of American greatness turned at last from ascent to irrevocable decline, and ultimately to decay and disintegration. It will be seen as the moment when, under the leadership of a vainglorious man of low character, full of seething resentment and base ambition, the fatal and inevitable weaknesses of democracy finally overcame a once-great nation and people.”
