  1. In my experience, people are prone to violence and religion is simply a convenient excuse.
  2. He certainly surrounds himself with some interesting people. Here's another one who is going down: Trump Campaign Coordinator And 'Family Values' Republican Pleads Guilty To Child Sex Trafficking, Faces Life In Prison Carlos Ballesteros , Newsweek•November 20, 2017 Ralph Shortey, former Oklahoma state senator and a county campaign coordinator for President Donald Trump’s campaign last year, will plead guilty to a child sex trafficking offense for soliciting sex from a 17-year-old boy in March. In exchange for his guilty plea, government prosecutors have agreed to drop three counts of child pornography against him. Shortey is scheduled to plead guilty on November 30, two weeks before his trial was set to commence on December 5. https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-campaign-coordinator-apos-family-222545006.html
  3. If Trump is as good at remembering the passcodes as I am with passwords, then the world will be very, very safe from a preemptive nuclear strike.
  4. It's a sad state of affairs when the Military has to threaten to overrule the civilian gov't, but I am now led to believe there are times when it may be necessary. This is one of them.
  5. There are a lot of problems to overcome: Poorly trained drivers, poorly designed roads, a very wide variety of vehicles, from motorcycles with sidecarts to huge trucks all vieing for the same spot on the road. Mostly, though, it is the lack of any reasonable enforcement of existing laws that is the major problem. It's pretty much a free-for-all and a war zone combined.
  6. A brochure....hell, I want a video!
  7. This is not a nothingburger, it's a groperburger.
  8. Having spent a fair amount of time in Arizona, it is hard to imagine a more horrible way to die. This and children being left in vehicles in hot, sunny weather. I am not a fan of the death penalty, but I certainly can't see myself standing in any protest to save either him or the girl's mother. I can't even see myself wasting a keystroke to write to someone.
  9. But, but, but Russia is so good, according to Trump. How can he investigate this?
  10. The myth of melting ice and rising seas

    I have followed climate issues for many years, long, long before it was a politicized issue. One of the first scientific article I read when I was rather young, was about the possibility of a mini-ice age. It caught my interest and I've been hooked on the issue ever since. It's a very complex issue and includes a lot of cycles with the rotation of the earth, including a 100,000 year cycle. When I grew up the planting season started around May 10. Prior to that the ground was too cold and the chance of a killing frost was too great. It is now April 15. There are weight restrictions on heavy trucks when the frost is coming out of the ground (it ruins the roads). Those have also been backed up by a couple of weeks. The same is true of the first solid freeze in the fall, which is now 2 weeks later (with weather variations, it is sometimes a month to 6 weeks later). These changes are not weather, they are climate. We have seen the all-time record breaking rainfall in Texas, we have seen one of the longest dry and heat spells in the S.W. desert of the US; we have seen record breaking hurricanes, including one that hit Ireland, which is a long ways from the warm equatorial waters. All of these are anecdotal to some extent, but the direction on climate change seems to be pointing in one direction and that isn't toward stability.
  11. No, they may not all have just 'come out of the woodwork', but it's just now getting the attention it deserves. He had enough of a history of bothering young girls to get banned from an Alabama Mall: Roy Moore was reportedly banned from Alabama mall for bothering teen girls https://www.yahoo.com/news/m/1d451fa4-0315-3a44-9324-9da99c5ca2aa/roy-moore-was-reportedly.html
  12. .....but, but Hillary.....
  13. No, stand there, stare, maybe laugh and then wait for rescue to get through BKK traffic.
  14. A bar full of people and nobody has a clue that it might be a wise idea to do SOMETHING?
  15. I suppose "I love that nipple ring" would really be quite inappropriate?
