I can put up with differing points of view, but be prepared to defend your premise; don't just throw something out there without supporting evidence.
And don't bother even starting a conversation if you doubt science, believe in flat earth, doubt the moon landing, are opposed to vaccines, or just generally believe in fairytales.
Keep an open mind and maybe get off the internet once in a while....
Republican strategist Amanda Carpenter, who once served as Sen. Ted Cruz's (R-Texas) communications director said of ivanka: "What's she doing exactly? Nobody knows. What qualifies her? Apparently being the president's daughter. There's a word for this: nepotism," Carpenter wrote. "And it makes everything Ivanka has done up to this point to position herself as an example for working women into a farce. By taking this role, Ivanka is taking away a life-changing opportunity from another woman, who undoubtedly would have more expertise than the first daughter."
18 U.S. Code § 2381 - Treason Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States. Tick. Tick. Tick.
"I haven't been in a science class in a long time, but the earth moves closer to the sun every year–you know the rotation of the earth," Wagner said. "We're moving closer to the sun."He added, "We have more people. You know, humans have warm bodies. So is heat coming off? Things are changing, but I think we are, as a society, doing the best we can." Short. Sweet. To the point. That's the beauty Dave's iPhone.
There's a lot to take in about the changes to internet privacy. But the one thing that gets missed is this: it just got a helluva lot easier for law enforcement to obtain your private records without a court order.
That should scare the crap out of you. It's bigger than selling your info for profit; now you can be legally spied on for any and every thing you do.
Yes, this kid was from the U.K. But perhaps if we embraced science in the same way - they were having teens use NASA data to help them understand the universe a little - we could also have teens who see these types of data errors.
Everyone instantly recognizes his name, but most forget that in addition to being a brilliant scientist, he was essentially a refugee. He was a Jew from Germany who came to the US in the 1930s, after being persecuted in his homeland.
Thinking about this, there are two other things about him that may also be relevant today: in spite of being well educated, he was fairly poor; and he lived here for a fairly long period before he got his citizenship.
But that's not all there is to say about the man. Einstein had interests beyond science.
He was a social activist. Of the nazi regime he said "[they] shun popular enlightenment, and more than anything else in the world, fear the influence of men of intellectual independence."
He was a member of the NAACP, and passionate about being against racism. He called racism the "worst disease in the US, that's handed down from generation to generation" and was vocal about …
In these rather odd times with El donaldo, we've heard his "scandal" is like watergate. And he tries to twist it so that he's the victim of watergate, rather than Nixon.
I think it's clear he's a clueless buffoon, and he is Nixon in this case. He profited. He didn't pay taxes. Perhaps he doesn't have any direct intelligence on his rivals through recordings, but those close to him very well may.
It's amazing to me that her emails were such a concern. Even though they were thoroughly investigated. That Benghazi was an issue as much as it was.
And meanwhile, he has at least 4 people who had direct ties to Russia, his VP used a private email server that was hacked (and had sensitive information on it), he has an AG who lied under oath, and he has several ongoing scandals - not the least of which are that he got a soldier killed for no real reason, and he has likely violate the emoluments clause for his conflicts of interest.
And yet congress, which has the duty to investigate any and all of these, has decided to simply ignore all of it.
Can you imagine if she had been elected? (oh who am I kidding, that wasn't going to happen! The Russians made sure of that). And had been implicated in any portion of this?
The committees, investigations, and talks of impeachment would have been incessant.
