Re: Tax Cut legislation

The GOP, right or wrong, has a solution...

It's not a "solution" if it's wrong. And it is very wrong.

Re: Mueller is...

Good stuff. I hope a lot of these people end up in a federal pen.

I hope Mueller survives. I wouldn't put it past the Russian poisoner-in-chief to do something, if only for the chaos it would cause.

Re: Bergdahl

The Bone Spur Buffoon is unfit to judge Bergdahl...

The irony is that the Buffoon's commentary and actions made it less likely that Bergdahl would get the kind of justice the Buffoon was crying for.* It's the same with the [more]

Re: Donna Brazile speaks, and the earth quakes

Your boy, Donnie Trump, is doing great.

Re: to Mars or not to Mars

I don't object to the idea of going to Mars. At least not too much. I do think the money is better spent on robotic probes, but if it takes a manned mission to generate some excitement (and hopefully more funding for robotic missions as a side [more]

Re: Firefly

It was a good show with complex characters. Sadly, episodes were released out of order, so nothing made sense. The movie Serenity did a great job of telling the main story and tying up loose ends.

Re: Using Carbon Dioxide to Produce Fuel

But research in this area is a very good idea.

Agreed. We may come to a point where we need to create renewable-powered machines to suck the carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, and toss giant lumps of graphite into some ocean [more]

Re: [humor] trevor Noah on trump's wall

I was pleased to note they've continued Trevor Noah's contract. After a bit of a rough start (understandable) the guy has become a worthy successor to Jon Stewart.

Re: depopulation

I'm quite convinced depopulation is going to be a result of climate change. Desperate people with nothing to lose are exceedingly dangerous. And we will have many such people as areas become uninhabitable.

It will happen [more]

Re: DOE: Wind Energy Cheap. Getting Cheaper

Electric power is always needed, therefore it is inappropriate to compare dispatchable power generators (generators that can ramp up and down as needed) with the intermittent renewables, which generate power whenever the weather conditions are [more]

Whining Hillary channels Trump

Hearing about Hillary's whine about Sanders in her book just exemplifies that sense of entitlement she seems to have had that just rubs a lot of people the wrong way. It's like nobody should have run against her at all, and anyone who did [more]

Re: Sick of winning, yet?

Trump is one of the most popular presidents ever!

I see you're as accurate with this as with anything else, including climate change. Oh well, at least you're consistent.
