Just like the Democrats defended the Clintons and every other Democrat until it came time to throw them under the bus because they had become so blatant in their behavior.
Police should be free to use the level of force necessary to protect lives and property. However, the press (and several of you) appears to support only the criminals, not the victims of crime or the police.
I deal with a feral cat colony – most are neutered/spayed (paid for by me) Up until yesterday there were two litters from females I couldn’t catch. Yesterday, Vicious, one I can’t catch, littered again (and she didn’t even look pregnant). There are about 6 that follow me from the first station to the 3rd, and 3 from the second station to the fourth. I have no idea how many cats there are, because they don’t show every station, every day. I do know the oldest one is Charcoal, from the original litter that started the colony, and she is 17. The problem (other than catching and neutering/spaying) is that none of the shelters here take kittens except the kill shelter.
The same applies to solar, whether photovoltaic or the mirror/tower combinations – there are mining, processing, transportation and, for the mirror/tower versions, maintenance costs and associated energy usages. (And the mirror/tower combinations kill lots of birds, too.) There are also significant environmental pollution costs for the production of the photovoltaic systems, and waste disposal problems at the end of life.
I have 20 at the first feeding station (including 3 kittens), 7 at the second, 19 at the 3rd, and 12 (including 4-5 kittens) at the 4th. Some of the cats don’t get along, and some follow me from station to station (especially the teenagers).
Perfect for grinding grain, pumping water, cutting lumber. Producing electricity, not so much.
You are, for the most part, correct. However, according to my wife (who worked as an accountant for the All Pueblo Council for several years) and others (including news reports in the Albuquerque Journal and the Sante Fe New Mexican) tribal councils have their own sources of corruption. Usually this corruption is familial, with members of a single family making the decisions for the entire tribe and controlling who gets jobs, contracts, benefits, etc. While our experience is with the Pueblos, I have no doubt that similar problems exist in other tribes.
Technically, every piece of trash put into orbit around the Earth is an artificial satellite – so the actual count is probably in the millions.
If Warren really wanted to improve conditions for Native Americans, she could do so from her position as senator. The problems with mismanagement and abuse of the tribes under the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Bureau of Land Management (of which BIA is a part) go back to the 1880s, and continue today. There has never been a more corrupt and incompetent organization in the government than the BIA. There was an effort in the early 1990’s to clean up the books on the monies owed the tribes for the use of natural resources on their lands, but it was only partially successful, and I am sure conditions have reverted to the norm for that organization since then.
The same Boston Globe recently attacked her for her comments against law enforcement and about the Michael Brown shooting.
