World stage? Ha!

They all know tRump is a pawn of the Russians and Saudis.

I vehemently disagree with your assumptions and approach. This country is strong because each citizen is (should be) equal under the law. Period.

Pierce is eroding my respect for him. 😵

As posted above by octoberlib:

"Sirota falsely claimed that O'Rourke took a bunch of donations from big oil. It was pointed out to him on the chart he tweeted that they were all individual donations. On FEC forms, occupation is listed when an individual donation is made. If he has a point to make ,fine but no need to lie."

Wonder what happened to this promising study?....

I may be needing help soon.

Need advice: should we ride out fluctuations in the market

now, in view of a pending recession? (We've lost quite a bit in an index fund over the last 2 months.)

Or transfer money to a money market fund?

Thanks!

Soldiers saving pups! I'm in.

My ❤ melted.

Thank you for posting this.

Delayed kick on this.

That was fun!

We had friends who are pilots, including a now retired AF Colonel who commanded the Thunderbirds for several years. He had stories to tell.

A great speech

Listened only to half of it but bookmarked to finish later.

Thanks for posting this.

Trump is a leader of a cult of people with personality disorders.

Bill Nye on Terraforming Mars: “Are You Guys High?”

https://futurism.com/bill-nye-mars-terraforming-high

"Nye isn’t alone in his thinking, either — noted astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, another well-known science advocate, also believes any plans to make Mars livable for humans are absurd."

And here:
"Neil deGrasse Tyson Says Humans Will Never Colonize Mars"

https://futurism.com/neil-degrasse-tyson-humans-colonize-mars

This is exactly what my hubs, a PhD NASA physicist, has been saying all along: the idea is preposterous -- especially given that we aren't even taking care of planet Earth enough to sustain human and most other life here.

We simply don't have the resources to create the biological diversity on Mars that we have here and it's exactly that biological diversity that is needed to sustain us. Colonizing Mars is an extremely unrealistic pipe dream.

NASA ppl know this too but have to come up with acceptable and exciting ideas simply to get continued funding from a very naive Congress.

Gawd, we cannot ask that NASA come up with ideas to help combat global climate change, the undeniable #1 threat to existence of most all life. And we're facing this before the end of this century. But what can we expect from a Congress and a population who still believe in a Sky Daddy who is not going to let bad things happen to them.

People should be reading more science and less science fiction. Seriously.


😄 I had a Siamese vehicle-riding cat

That did the same thing to a telephone guy 45 years ago.
(Remember when they had to come to your house to install things?)

He was a very special, intelligent cat named Mr. Silver. When he was a kitten, I took him thru drive-thrus with me and he just got used to riding. So, when we moved, he must have surmised that he was just hitching a ride back to his real home. The phone guy brought him home.

If you had $50 to spend at...

Bed, Bath, & Beyond, what would you buy?


On edit: it's a gift certificate.
