    Waterboarding is considered to be torture by a wide range of authorities, including legal experts,[1][36][37] politicians, war veterans,[38][39] intelligence officials,[40] military judges,[41] and human rights organizations.

    That is just waterboarding and a public webpage. How does that prove that everyone in the world accepts YOUR definition of torture? Are you claiming wikipedia is pure truth?

    You can find this anywhere. This was just a survey site. What it reports us accurate.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Any fool with half a brain can figure out that waterboarding is torture. Try it sometime and see how you feel about it.

    Is the New York Times even a relevancy anymore? Slim is about to slam its doors. I can hardly wait.

    You certainly can move on as you wish but that waterboarding is torture is not a debatable issue for any intelligent person.
