Bernie Sanders' amendment limited to "for-profit" corporations

Climate Change

I was wondering if the European winter was related to the Gulf Stream. Has there been any significant changes

to the Gulf Stream and is it effecting the European weather.

I remember reading years ago that climatologist predicted that melting artic ice could change the salinity of the

north Atlantic ocean and slow or stop the Gulf stream that would lead to cold teperatures in Europe.

I was hoping you could ask some experts and find out what they have to say about these.

The Meaning of the Word Welfare

The OED, the American Heritage Dictionary, and my large and vernerable edition of Webster's published in 1923, all agree that welfare is a synonym for well being. The American Heritage Dictionary, edition of 1981, gives the primary definition as, quote, "Health, happiness, and general well being." Welfare is also a synonym for prosperity. The constitution of the United States allows the Congress, that is, the Senate and the House, to provide for the welfare, that is, for the health and prosperity of the people.

Capitol Assets: Legislators send millions$$$ to groups connected to their relatives.

Some members of Congress send tax dollars to companies, colleges and community groups where their spouses, children and parents work as salaried employees, lobbyists or board members, according to an examination of federal disclosure forms and local public records by The Washington Post.
