They stroked the ego of our Resident, so now we’re obligated to commit thousands of American lives and trillions of American dollars to a war effort on their behalf if they ask.
“Climate change” more accurately describes the issue, because it ain’t all about warming. As global temperatures rise, weather patterns will change, and that could result in colder temperatures in some areas. More polar vortexes affecting certain parts of the globe are an obvious example. But one very large concern is that changes in ocean temperatures and chemistry could cause prevailing ocean currents to change, prompting colossal temperature shifts. One possible outcome could be a dramatically colder Europe. Given its latitudes (for example, Venice is actually farther north than Toronto), one would expect much cooler temperatures, but it is warmed by the North Atlantic Current. If the NAC changes significantly…
A while back the public school system in the community in which I lived was holding a special referendum. They had overestimated how much revenue they would be receiving, had spent money in accordance with those inflated estimates, and needed the special referendum to pass in order to avoid needing to drastically cut programs. My boss at the time was adamantly voting against the referendum, because in his view the school district should not have made that mistake. He had kids in that same public school system. Some people are simply a**holes.
It was probably assigned on Monday, due the following week. Though I’m surprised she’s doing it on a Saturday and not a Sunday.
Survival belongs to the well-organized.
Of course the big banks are strongly motivated to protect your information from theft! It’s a lot less valuable for them to sell to others if a third party is able to steal it and sell it at a lower price.
It looks to me like Simmons has found a pursuit that is FAR more worthwhile than golf.
Thompson’s closing comments prompted me into a literal LOL – a pretty common occurrence for his work. I cried when I heard that he had passed away; I find very few people to be worthy of adulation, but Richard Thompson ranked among them.
I actually have to defend the P.O.S. on this one. tRump has hardly been a failure by the only measure that counts in capitalism – having more stuff than the Joneses. Even though he has had multiple bankruptcies and has had countless failed business endeavors, he is still able to eat his KFC with gold utensils on his own private jet. He has no redeeming qualities, had to rely on extremely unscrupulous methods to maintain his lavish lifestyle, and would have been far more successful if he was actually competent. But… a failure? He IS the embodiment of the American dream, and his lack of ethics in attaining the success that eludes most is just as American. AND your blatant misrepresentation is a perfect example of the type of leftist overreach that allows the “right” to successfully undermine progressive messaging. The 3 or 4% of Al Gore’s message that was wrong was enough to destroy the 96 or 97% that was right. By the measures that actually count in America, tRump has always been a success. To argue otherwise undermines all of your credibility, and will only help to re-elect the jackass in 2020.
As OldCoal said, tRump won’t shut up even if we’re fortunate enough to oust him from the Offal Office. Step 1 is to put forward a solid Democratic foe. Step 2 is to find some way to gain a victory in the Electoral College. Step 3 is to find a way to actually get him out if he does indeed lose – you know he won’t accept a loss, would challenge it in the courts (and/or simply try to ignore the results), his challenge would have the backing of every Senate Republican, and there is no guarantee that the Supreme Court would do the right thing. Steps 4 through… (42? infinity?) will be to learn from the debacle and try to find a way to heal and fix the nation.
