    Greta Rides Again?

    Only one way to better the USA standing in the world. And you know what that is. It's probably more likely that Apple has more fear of re-electing this *resident than even the populace.
  3. So, witnesses are allowed? Another Moscow Mitch bait and switch.

    GAO - Trump Broke The Law

    Not just metaphorically. The Mango is simply not physically to carry them, couldn't even walk the course.

    One of those may have already occurred in Bangladesh in 1970 (at least 500,000 dead) and another in 1991 (10,000,000 homeless). Probably neither caused by climate change, but that's where the next one may happen as well.

    You are referring, of course, to Stewart Brand and Greta Thunberg? Regarding rooftop solar, I'm all for it.

    A. You must be a fun guy to go on a ride with. B. How would you know if you haven't sailed since 2016?

    Do you use Skyye Vodka when making a Gretini? More to the point...The world needs Gretas. A whole lot more than it needs tRumps. The original Earth Day was started by a bunch of other proto-Gretas. Brand was a proto-Greta when he was young. And Brand had a lot of other proto-Gretas buy his book. A pretty useful pre-internet resource book, by the way. It showed ways of making the planet better by incremental, individual behaviour. Kind of like Greta is promoting. Do it yourself.

  13. Misdemeanor does not mean what Dog and other apologists thinks it means in this context. It is not the meaning in current court usage. It means essentially bringing disgrace upon the Office of the Presidency and the country. Something that the Mad Mango does every minute of every day. But constitutional lawyers can provide a better definition and understanding than mine.

    That's what I was trying to say in my last sentence. Let me say it this way: Almost every story they run finds some way to stick in some bullshit
