We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
MAYOR OF LONDON THREATENS TRUMP: Let Muslims in or they will attack America!
Now I wonder why so many back Trump in trying to ban Muslims from the United States? Anyone with common sense just needs to observe what is happening in Europe to see what their invasion has done to their host countries.
This made me laugh out loud when I read it. It wasn't too much later that a tweet directed at the new mayor landed in my feed which basically said bleep you and the horse you rode in on. It can't have been the only one sent.
Bill Nye is not a scientist. The only non-honorary degree he holds is a bachelor's in mechanical engineering. He has apparently never contributed to a peer-reviewed published paper in any scientific discipline.
But because he wore a bow-tie and lab coat on television, on a show that taught science at about the level of understanding of most journalism and communications majors, he is awarded a degree of authority well beyond his qualifications.
As an engineer, he should know enough about thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and differential equations to understand the limits of predictability of complex, non-linear, and dynamical systems, as well as data gathering and metrology to understand that the models being used cannot extract trends reliably at the levels they are claiming. Also he should be able to recognize the fundamental instability of dynamical systems under the domination of high positive feedbacks.
Another guy named Dan
Talk like that doesn't get you love from the in crowd. These hucksters are more interested in lining their pockets than science.
re Trump presidency would revive neutered Congress, restore power to the people
Of course it will.
!) Dems will oppose him bacause he has an 'R' after his name.
2) A percentage of the GOP will oppose him as well. Just because.
3) The media won't let him get away with 1% of what Jug Ears has done. They will be calling him a dictator wannabe or accusing him of trashing the Constitution and calling for investigations for things they turned a blind eye to under 0bama.
RE Teacher To Be Prosecuted For Calling Mohammed Child Molester
In the 21st century, I find it astonishing that any authority would prosecute someone for calling that sex fiend pervert pedo Mo a "child molester", when the Holey Coran clearly establishes the short eyes as a rock spider chomo deviant diaper sniping skinner.
