  1. Disunited states: Could a second Civil War — and an end to the union — really happen? Richard Kreitner on his new book "Break It Up" and why secession remains a possible solution to America's dilemma Chauncey DeVega September 22, 2020 On Sept. 11, Donald Trump proclaimed on Twitter that: "Pelosi and Schumer want Trillions of Dollars of BAILOUT money for Blue States that are doing badly, both economically and in terms of high crime, as a condition to making a deal on stimulus — But the USA is coming back strong!" Trump was widely mocked in response
  2. And Maya Angelou: "When someone shows you who they are, believe them."
  3. Of course. Just ask Mikey. It shows just how smart Trump is - joking about our pandemic response. He's a stable genius for sure.
  4. So Trump says really stupid stuff deliberately and that's supposed to be better than doing it inadvertently???
  5. That's just hopelessly blatantly ignorant. We aren't talking about changes that occur over a geologic time scale (hundreds of millions of years) but rapid changes that started with the industrial age. Do you know how many years ago that was Mikey? Look it up, it will do you good. Maybe. (But thanks for making the point of the article.)
  6. And then there's this: Justice Dept. targets Portland, New York and Seattle over protests By Devlin Barrett September 21, 2020 at 6:23 p.m. EDT The Justice Department on Monday labeled the cities of Portland, Ore., New York and Seattle as jurisdictions “that have permitted violence and destruction of property,” targeting them for possible cuts in federal funding. Following a memorandum that President Trump issued this month, the Justice Department published a list
  7. Shortly after Congress passed the Cares Act, the Pentagon began directing pandemic-related money to defense contractors By Aaron Gregg and Yeganeh Torbati September 22, 2020 at 8:35 a.m. EDT A $1 billion fund Congress gave the Pentagon in March to build up the country’s supplies of medical equipment has instead been mostly funneled to defense contractors and used for making things such as jet engine parts, body armor and dress uniforms.
  8. Yeah it was. But note that the back had just received the ball and didn't even have a chance to take the first step. I was certainly an impressive athletic move for Clowney to get there and deliver the hit, but the Shivers hit is more impressive to me in terms of a 'mano a mano' bringing the hurt.
  9. As an amateur photographer I am amazed by. I assume it was taken by a still photographer. Anyone know the details?
  10. A related piece - which happens to be another ultra-leftist piece from that left leaning wapo! A perspective by George Will - a conservative but clearly a contemporary RINO. Hypocrisy and constitutional etiquette Opinion by George F. Will Columnist September 21, 2020 at 5:09 p.m. EDT Sen. Lindsey Graham, the South Carolina contortionist, illustrates the perils of attempted cleverness by people with negligible aptitude for it. He says that the principle he enunciated in
  11. A PBS political analyst remarked on this maybe a week ago - they were setting up a scenario in which Biden was incoherent, which pretty much guarantees the debates would benefit him by being measured against such a low standard of performance. Trump is the one who is incoherent without a teleprompter. Having said that, I don't expect the debates to move the polls one iota regardless of how Biden does. IMO, Trump is more likely to **** up. But that won't move the polls either.
  12. Surprised, huh? I posted this for two reasons: To demonstrate the WAPO publishes both sides of the political divide - as any respected news source would do - and as a hommage to NOLA's argument that packing the court is not a wise thing to do. Packing the Supreme Court is a horrible idea. Democrats must reject it. Opinion by Henry Olsen Columnist September 21, 2020 Democrats are understandably furious and fearful over the likelihood that President Trump and t
  13. Oh, I forgot to mention: From the statement above, you apparently don't understand my position in the first place. It's not that we should lower the earths average temperature 1.5-2 degrees - which I seriously doubt is possible at any price. What's done is done. My argument is we should immediately start mitigating future increases in average temperature, hopefully preventing it from reaching existentially threatening levels - say an additional 3 to 4 degrees C on average more than it has already risen. This is certainly possible - if not probable - without immediate action to re
  14. Do you believe that climate is changing and that it's primarily due to the result of carbon emissions starting at the beginning of the industrial age? If not, I have little interest in trying to convince you otherwise. It would be an exercise in futility. (Been there, done that.) Otherwise, I suppose we could debate the speed of such change and it's significance to our lives and long term future, but I have come to understand that committed skeptics will not change their minds within the time it takes for the consequences to manifest themselves in an undeniable way, even though the
