Well the Neaderthal Woman didn't like us....

So we now know that the Neaderthal Woman wheren't interested in us modern human Males.
A complete mitochondrial (mt) genome sequence was reconstructed from a 38,000 year-old Neandertal individual with 8341 mtDNA sequences identified among 4.8 Gb of DNA generated from ∼0.3 g of bone. Analysis of the assembled sequence unequivocally establishes that the Neandertal mtDNA falls outside the variation of extant human mtDNAs, and allows an estimate of the divergence date between the two mtDNA lineages of 660,000 ± 140,000 years.

But what about the Neaderthal males, where they interested in modern human females, and what about the interests of modern females? Only time will tell.

We all benefit when government is involved in maintaining things like access to water, electricity, roads, and basic health care. The History of this great nation is filled with examples of government subsidies going to private industry to create wealth. To think that private corporations, or even individuals have produced this wealth _ex nihilo_ with only their sweat is hubris. It is to forget that we all…
