They’re still with(in) us. Neanderthals contributed 1—4% of our DNA.
You’d think the “Space Force” would at least have a flag ship.
Neanderthals were NOT dumb. They lasted longer than we have, and they have a lot to be admired. I won’t go into the Paleontology, unless you ask. Suffice it to say, calling someone a Neanderthal is only an insult in your (and perhaps their) mind.
At this point, no.
I’m a teacher. I give positive reinforcement for small steps.
The Apportionment Act of 1911 set the House of Representatives at 435 (in 1912 when Arizona and New Mexico joined the Union). If it were repealed, or if Congress got off its duff and actually reapportioned the seats (i.e. added seats as required by the Constitution), then states with larger populations would have more representation. Thus a more equitable distribution of voting power between, say, California and Wyoming. Full disclosure: I live in California.
Time to repeal the Apportionment Act of 1911.
I always try to “Like” enlightened cartoons from conservative cartoonists to encourage them.
I’m with gnome. I don’t keep quiet, but use reasoned (and rejected) argument. I made a vow that I would no longer say, “Well, that’s [insert name]” and let it go. Having a smart phone makes it easy to fact check on the fly.
I usually start off with, “Watch Fox News much?” then explain how they aren’t getting all the news and should check out some other news channels—even the local non-Fox channels. I tell them they need to look things up for themselves. I mention that I fact-check liberals, as well as conservatives, and suggest they do the same.
I think it’s important that we not remain silent.
Where can I get one of those Trump voodoo dolls?
