    This Could Get Big And Nasty For Donald Trump

    Every once in a while, you make a decent point. This is one of those times, IMHO.

    Can the first amendment survive Trump?

    No argument, and I hope that my comments weren't understood to be opposed to protests. I think it's vital for people to feel free to express themselves. To clarify - I think that some who are protesting think that because they don't like what someone else has to say, that they have the right to stop them from saying it, and it's that expectation I oppose. Anyone sitting in the Whitehouse is free to agree or disagree with the comments sent their way - they shouldn't want to curtail those comments.

    I'd love to see us call KSA for all the BS they've perpetrated, so please don't construe my question to be sympathetic to or apologetic of the KSA, I'm asking from the context of what legal/constitutional authority the US Government could apply to the situation. The corruption of the House of Saud is well documented. Aside from taking a moral stand against this, but how does the US legally respond to the KSA killing one of its own citizens?

    I hope you don't honestly think that. I *do* think a bit of a clarification in understanding is warranted nationwide, as I think that there are too many today who think that freedom of speech means that they get to quench that with which they disagree. The freedom that we all cherish comes with the responsibility to protect it, even when the speech we hear isn't something we like. From Trump to the whiny snots on campus protesting the appearance of speakers they think they oppose - a 5 gallon bucket of tolerance would be a good first dose.

    No wish to censure at all, D - just pointing out what looked like a fishing expedition. I don't like snakes, insects or paperwork either, but, don't know that I'd let worries about that impact my destination decisions. No harm, no foul - or as I heard quite often when I was enjoying your country's hospitality out in Cambridgshire, "Cheers!" Keep sending the vids, please - I do enjoy what you make, and what ya share.

    Climate Change .. One step too far. Can't stop laughing

    Even if PV only provides a partial solution - it's still one that has negligible negative side effects, is clean, quiet, no moving parts, and as long as the ROI is shorter than the expected lifespan of the components? It's a financial win too. We won't find a single solution - the solution will be an aggregate combination of production/storage/dissemination.

    The catch phrase of the tune is a common country colloquialism - "WIsh in one hand shit in the other - see which one fills up first". The fit here is that you seem to wishing for a problem where one doesn't exist - and that ya oughta quit wishin' and go check out some of the places for which you feign fear - ya' might find someplace else to like. Edited to add: This song was playing on Spotify radio in the background when I read your comment, and I thought that others might enjoy it as well.

    ^^^ BL - I hate stupid fuggin' memes, but that's sadly close to the truth.

    I think that w/his mention of an irrational fear of people w/firearms, that our friend Dylan might be doing something else he has said he doesn't enjoy - fishing.

    Thanks for sharing that, Dylan - some of my most enjoyable times on the water have been paddling a kayak overloaded w/food & beer to camp on a sandbar. Ya don't need a 40' yacht to enjoy time on the water.

    Any music video w/a Dobro, washboard, pole dancer and marching band bass drum has gotta be good.

    Welcome to the future: Hurricane Michael slams Florida

    I was a little boy when she hit - the eastern shore of the Chesapeake wasn't the worst of it, but, it was pretty ugly. I thought it was fun swimming in the living room, and couldn't understand why my Dad was so pissed off at me being in the way as he moved furniture and heaters upstairs.

    The Blue Wave?

    Folks - apologies - A friend had pointed me to Mz Paglia's video this morning, and I took a few minutes to read some of her writings. Didn't realize that HJ had tried to start a shit-flinging thread w/the same video. That wasn't my intention here, and I apologize for seeming to be jumping on the bandwagon.

    The Blue Wave?

    Let's change the focus of the question for a bit.... If the Ds do gain a majority in either the house or the senate, what do the proponents on the left think they will do differently than the Rs? I'm interested in serious policy issues, not the obvious attempts to nullify everything that the Rs have tried to accomplish. For each of those policy priorities, what do you see as the likely outcome?

    High School Research Anarchy

    You've got a good bunch Bus - when I was in HS? I thought I was doing something when I made my own vacuum tube in physics. I went to a very poor, very rural HS.
