    "Figures often beguile me, particularly when I have the arranging of them myself; in which case the remark attributed to Disraeli would often apply with justice and force: "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics." -- Mark Twain

    "It speaks to the hubris of humans to think they cause climate change, and even more so to that same hubris to believe they can stop it." -- Worn out door knobs

    ...Uh-huh.

    It speaks to the hubris of an infinitesimal percent of humans, i.e., Republicans, to think they are more informed than all of the world's top climate scientists. The unequivocal scientific documentation is laid out in vivid and excruciating detail, informing us in no uncertain terms that the widespread destruction of Mother Earth's climate, oceans, and ecosystems is, in fact, caused directly by the activity of human beings!

    Since the industrial revolution, our species has released over 1,300 gigatons of carbon into the atmosphere at a pace much faster than even the End-Permian extinction, which wiped out 96 percent of marine life and 70 percent of terrestrial life. More ominous, as the planet inexorably heats up, copious amounts of methane -- a greenhouse gas 85 times more destructive than carbon dioxide -- will begin to bubble up into the atmosphere at an alarming rate, triggering even higher temperatures.

    We are at the beginning, possibly the middle, of an ongoing mass-extinction event (the sixth one in geological history, which some scientists have labeled the Anthropocene extinction), the likes of which Earth has never seen before. Let's just call it mass suicide.

    Therefore, the only way to adapt and survive is to stop pouring greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and heat into the oceans -- right now! That's what the science is telling us. Otherwise, the inevitable will happen.

    Given several hundred thousand years, the earth will hopefully survive the stain of Homo sapiens and once again become a paradise, perhaps for a wiser species.

    Ignorance is not necessarily stupidity; willful ignorance certainly is.

  • How The Republican Party Responds to Corruption Says It All   3 weeks 5 days ago

    Scientists tell us the earth has been here 4,000,000,000 years. Scientist also tells us modern humans have inhabited the earth for 20,000 years or so, or 0.000005 of the earth's total existence. If we were to compare humans existence on earth to a twenty four hour day, humans have been on earth less than a half of a second. During the earth's 4 billion year existence, climate change has occurred countless times. Scientists have discovered that our planet has reversed magnetic poles at least eighteen times. It speaks to the hubris of humans to think they cause climate change, and even more so to that same hubris to believe they can stop it. Millions of species have come and gone in the earth's 4 billion year history. Humans too will be extinct. Mankind needs to find a way to adapt to climate change and stop the futile attempt to stop it. Charles Darwin stated "It is not the strongest creature that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one most adaptable to change."

    "It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so." - Mark Twain

    "Meanwhile, in the real world" ...Tinhip is deflecting from the real issue.

    This sad state of affairs is not about Biden or his son. Unfortunately for Trump trolls trying to defend the indefensible, there is Z-E-R-O evidence of either criminal wrongdoing or the more amorphous charge of corruption on the part of the Bidens -- despite the desperate and pathetic attempts by His Grace, The Orange, and the Hand of the King, Ser Giuliani, to manufacture such evidence for self-serving political purposes by blackmailing (in effect by threatening to withhold much-needed, Congressionally-approved aid for) a fledgling democracy, our ally, fighting for its life against a murderous totalitarian regime, our enemy.

    Sorry; the Democrats didn't make this up, as the purveyors of big lies and half-truths are forever wishin' and hopin' in their most fevered wet dreams.

    "In the real world," there is ample evidence of traitorous unpatriotism, criminal wrongdoing, and systemic corruption by King Trump and his court of fools -- so much so that it finally triggered a much-deserved impeachment inquiry, the gravest undertaking of Constitutionally mandated oversight responsibility. (Whereas, hypocritical Republicans tried to impeach Bill Clinton's penis.)

    And to reduce the discussion down to a "gotcha" by bragging gleefully about fund-raising off such despicable behavior only demonstrates the depths of depravity to which Republicans have sunk.

    Thanks for making that abundantly clear to everyone, Tinhip.

    "People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!" -- Greta Thunberg

    A brave little girl from Sweden has more intelligence, courage, and humanity than the collective "brainpower" of the entire Republican Party and their Wall Street masters. She sailed across a sea to stare down the world.

    And the evil clowns in America could only ridicule her.

    The world is dying. There are no more excuses. A vote for a climate-crisis denier is a vote against life itself.

  • Time To Clean House?   3 weeks 6 days ago

    In my neck of the woods, Trump zealots outnumber sane people two to one. One of the easiest ways to shut them down is simply to ask how Republicans would have dealt with Obama or Hillary had either of them sounded and acted even a little bit like Trump. (Fill in the blanks for examples; the list of King Joffrey's abhorrent behavior is long.)

    Of course, any real answer requires a modicum of intellectual honesty, which Trumpsters famously lack. But it's fun to watch squinty eyes dart around vacantly as a Fux News zombie-brain searches futilely for a coherent response.

  • Call Congress & Demand Trump Be Impeached Now   4 weeks 11 hours ago

    If Democratic House holdouts can set aside crass politics for the moment and do what the Constitution demands, would this be Trump's zugzwang? By releasing the whistleblower's (Dan Coats?) report, he'll be impeached; by not releasing it, he'll be impeached.

    It's Trump's move.

    Then it's Nancy's.

    If she insists on playing politics (After all, that's her job as Speaker.), then perhaps her calculation should be: Which party will be complicit in Trump's high crimes and misdemeanors by not holding him accountable? What happens next November to the Democrats if they look weak and feckless (because they would be) in the fight against Republicans' all-out war on democracy?

    Why not put the onus on the double-talking Republicans and Moscow Mitch, and make them look like subservient Trump toadies and fascists (because they are) when they refuse to convict their very own petty dictator in the Senate after the House makes the good and proper move to impeach?

    As Greta Thunberg would say, "We will be watching you!"

    And, yes, the best move that We the People can make is to demand that our representatives perform their constitutional duty!

    Ha! Good observation, Iliana Carol. I'm sure they'll come up with some kind of dastardly plot, and that's as good as any.

    But the House Democrats should not fall into their traps; instead, they should first focus on His Highness who rules over all executive branch departments -- the tree from which the bad apples fall. Then, all the rest of his rotten fruit can be dealt with accordingly.

  • Call Congress & Demand Trump Be Impeached Now   4 weeks 21 hours ago

    Trump and Hannity have dinner often.

    Hannity is both a mouthpiece and an ear for Trump.

    What if Hannity says we can displace the burden of impeachment inquiry from only you to the State Dept. and Pence if we have Guiliani spill these beans on my show. Now - it's not just Trump that was corrupting Ukraine, whcih is impeachable, but it the entire state dept AND Pence that has to be questioned, delaying the inevitable impeachment proceeding.

  • Should Trump Have the Power To Take Us to War?   4 weeks 2 days ago

    My answer to your question is a resounding no! Trump, under investigation as he is, should have curtailed powers, if it is Constitutionally possible to do so. That this unstable person is allowed to sit in the White House is a commentary on our poor election machinery and counting system. Unforgiveably bad.

    That said, though Congress was meant to have sole power to declare war, other US presidents have seemed to manipulate events, too. There are those who waited for Congress to recess, in order to call a war, as an "emergency measure." (Legally a President can declare a military action to last no longer than 60 days, I believe, without notifying Congress. Short, quick actions have happened. The name Bush comes to mind.)

    FDR himself, whom I greatly esteem, was said to have wanted a war he publicly denied wanting. The stories of deciphered communications between Roosevelt & the British, and deciphered Japanses communications during WWII, create suspicions in me that Congress was manipulated by the President into that war, in our then 'isolationist' America.*

    PS I admit surprise, reading in Ed Asner's new history (which carries a brilliant, full copy of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in the back) that originally Congress was intended to meet only once a year! That being the case, I wonder what the founders would have thought of our standing army, and the President's use of it. (I remember Kent State & President Nixon's calling the National Guard to fire upon American students. Indeed, this is not the 1st time we've seen tyranical actions by a US President. I can only hope Trump's fate is to go the same way.)

  • Did Trump Commit Treason?   4 weeks 2 days ago

    At this point, it's overkill and it doesn't seem to matter how much he crosses the line. It's pretty clear our institutions won't hold him accountable, so it's better to work on a viable successor at this point.

  • Did Trump Commit Treason?   4 weeks 4 days ago

    Sourcing matters.

    Yes, there certainly are "Lots of articles if one wants to spend one minute doing research." Of course, quickly cruising search engines to cherrypick right-wing articles in support of one's obvious biases doesn't really count as credible "research" in any academic sense of the word, does it? Perhaps spending a few minutes on the following article over at Politifact might shed more light on the subject:

    Fact-checking Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and Ukraine -- By Louis Jacobson, May 7th, 2019

    Disclaimer of my own bias: For many reasons (primarily for being too corporatized), I do not think Biden is the right choice for Democrats this time around, just as Hillary was not the right choice the last time around. I hope he gets knocked out in the primary. If his Ukraine non-scandal does the trick, so be it.

    But fair is fair. So far anyway, with regard to corruption allegations against the former vice president, it appears there is simply no there there, much to Republicans' chagrin. Should Biden win, he would still be -- by any measure -- a more qualified and legitimate president than the current, wholly corrupt occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Any erroneously perceived corruption on Biden's part pales in comparison -- a molehill to a mountain!

    But I get it; Republicans are flailing around and desperate to change the subject and steer the news cycle away from shining the klieg lights on the Trump crime family and their nearly absolute, runaway corruption, exposed by thick volumes of evidence in the public record and on the books of numerous prosecutorial venues. Go ahead and spend several thousand minutes on that research, then get back to us.

    Besides, in a political context, how many voters really care about the past trials and tribulations of a wayward son who is not running for any public office of trust other than angry, hateful, frustrated Republicans throwing shade? Why not balance out your damning critique of Hunter Biden with a few words about Joe Biden's deceased son, Beau Biden -- a much better role model as a son of a famous politician? (Although I'm sure Joe Biden loves all his children equally despite their individual failures and successes, as would most parents.) The once-upon-a-time slogan of Faux News, "fair and balanced," may have been a popular Republican mantra back in the day, but it was always a laughable misnomer; it definitely did not and does not reflect their actual one-sided narratives.

    By the way, there are only two sides to a news story: the truth and the lie.

    Have you spent more than "one minute" researching the Mueller Report? I suspect not since you've totally missed the salient point of this weighty matter vis-à-vis the Ukraine: It's clearly against the Constitution, the vast body of case law, and all acceptable standards of decency for a U.S. politician to seek foreign help to sway a domestic election, to lie about it, and to obstruct justice that seeks the truth.

    Those are impeachable offenses hands down, no matter how much Republicans try to obfuscate and distract. They want to make it all about the Democrats and the mere process of oversight rather than the real underlying issue, which is the Republican Party harboring their thoroughly corrupt "Dear Leader" who is defiantly in contempt of Congress -- yet another article of impeachment. Good luck with that.

    As time marches on and the relevant facts inevitably come out, hopefully before the general election, the majority of voters should see through all the dust kicked up by hyper-partisans and their false equivalencies -- if mainstream media can somehow, miraculously, set aside their own for-profit bias and finally do their damn job in the true interests of the public (their Constitutional mandate) instead of just focusing on the horserace and blathering on and on with shallow, salacious analyses. Their reality-show approach to the news may be a good business strategy, attracting more eyeballs and big-buck advertisers, but it sadly misinforms the public by underreporting the more critical, albeit uncomfortable, issues facing our declining democracy.

    In this era of 24/7 news saturation from all directions -- some valid, some not -- it's vitally important to investigate multiple sources, to separate the wheat from the chaff, to follow that thread of truth winding its way through daily news cycles no matter where it leads. In other words, we must each learn to become more responsible citizens if our experiment in democracy is to survive a small-minded aspiring dictator unwisely placed in a position of ultimate, intoxicating power.

    Whenever Tyrant Trump hollers "Fake news!" just because he can't handle the ugly truth about himself, imagine Thomas Jefferson turning in his grave:

    "No experiment can be more interesting than that we are now trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press. It is, therefore, the first shut up by those who fear the investigation of their actions." [emphasis mine] --Thomas Jefferson to John Tyler in 1804.
