Hmmm .. Johnson? Corbin? — crappy choice.
Ha! A sort of parallel to Mr. Trump.
I wish you had mentioned that to Mr. Cheney and W, back then.
Some perspective: 911 resulted in about 3000 dead in the US. The US military death toll in Afghanistan is around 2,400, and counting. This does not include the death toll for that little side excursion into Iraq. Osama bin Laden (a) left Afghanistan long ago and (b) has been dead for some time now. We’ve been torturing various suspects in Guantanamo for a decade or so. The US has made a net difference of zilch in Afghanistan, and continues to spend more $$$$ to produce more zilch.—I suggest that appropriate action to take now would be: (a) leave Afghanistan — send Dick Cheney to manage the withdrawal and (b) make sure that Mr. Cheney is the last man to get on the last plane out of Afghanistan.
How about: “Those who ignore history are doomed to make a lot of other people die for that willful ignorance.” Or, “Hey, hey, how many kids did you kill today?” (A popular chant aimed at LBJ)
“Get that same devotion…”? More like “Enforce that same devotion…”
Hmmm. Good question. Facts are taken as sarcasm?
Mr or Ms Schmeling: You are pushing a nearly dead mule. Coal fired power plants are not competitive. Coal fired plants are now a clear minority of the grid base. Wind power is heading for a majority of the base. The remaining few coal plants are mostly scheduled to be closed. The burden of a huge volume of really nasty coal by-product remains as an environmental disaster to be dealt with. Are you willing to pay a premium rate for coal-generated power?
