Recycling water isn’t much more expensive that what they already do. The water has to be cleaned to a basically drinkable level by federal law before being dumped into the ocean, which is what Los Angeles does with all its treated water. It is not legally clean enough to use for drinking water, but is close. If they go the few extra steps to make it drinkable, then let it go through some natural aquifers over years, no one would even know the difference. If people go up in the mountains where the water already comes from, they’ll see lots of animals go to the bathroom right near water sources, and stuff ending up in the water. Not to mention fish dying and going to the bathroom right in the water. But people don’t think anything of that.
If it’s a problem mentally, Orange County, CA uses a second set of pipes to provide recycled water for landscaping.

This is so old. I saw stories like this back when people had to manually type this on a typewriter instead of just emailing it.

No kidding. He considers drug dealing a violent crime because drugs can hurt people but when Bergdahl’s actions lead to the deaths of fellow soldier’s he’s fine with him getting a pass. Such inconsistency.

Anyone wanna bet he pleads not guilty?

When you’re going to call other people hateful and intolerant, practice in front of the mirror first, then decide if you should be saying it to yourself as well.

You’re probably right. If her sister is standing, the “ghost” appears to be way too high for it to be a ghost sitting in a chair in the room or where a chair used to be or whatever. Of course she could have shot a picture of the room in question which would clear up a lot, but didn’t.

Yeah no kidding. I’m guessing that because the teacher didn’t physically rip it off, they decided they could get away with calling it a “request”.

It takes 3/4 of the states to approve of an amendment. That’s a big hurdle particularly since many states aren’t likely to attend the convention. So those states would be deciding to approve something they had no input on. Which is why I would recommend trying to term limits first. The Congress would never vote that for themselves, but it might be possible to get 3/4 of the states to agree.
Plus how could something be hijacked? Every state gets to set the rules for their delegation so they can specify that the delegation can only discuss and vote on a specific type of amendment, or put other restrictions. The only way their vote counts is if they are the legitimately appointed representatives of a state. If they go rogue, the state can just yank the authorization.

I think term limits for members of Congress would be an easier amendment to pass first.
I agree. I just want them to do it though...remind the states that they still have power!

Why feed the trolls? If he caved in to a ridiculous demand where the interviewer blindsided him with something unrelated to what the interview was said to be about, he’d be getting it that at every interview. Again, if I spray organic urine or even worse “fertilizer” all over some fruits, would organic proponents just be willing to gobble them up on camera? No one should have to put up with gotcha journalism like that.

Oh right, the “extend a hand” plan didn’t work for 6 years, and it was just about to, except someone posted a letter online. His very first interview he threw that extend a hand bs in there, and even said nothing as Iranians were being killed in the streets for protesting rigged elections back then. But nothing for 6 years. Until they decided to extend concessions to the Iranians instead.
Thanks for jumping in. This was a straight up gottcha interview. The interview appears to have been regarding the rice given what he says at the end, but this clown threw this section in just for this exact outcome. As I said above, would the “journalist” drink cow urine even though it wouldn’t kill him?

Quite the opposite on global warming. He’s the co-founder of Greenpeace who left it due to it being too radical, and is a “denier”.
If it's safe, all he'd have to do would be to take one solid drink. Who cares if it's not pleasant. Life isn't pleasant. Stand by your claim.
Stop making excuses for people who get stuck in their own bu11$#!t.
agreed man I wont drink something if its handed to me opened and I don’t know the person, or ordered it without someones agenda all over it. Could have been poisoned so the guy dies and hes proven his point.

Yeah, his problem is his desertion has already been investigated way back then. So the testimony about radio intercepts will have been documented right afterwards. Hard to poke holes in that with his claim 5 years later. Also his other actual activities like sending personal belongings home, what he wrote in his emails to friends and family, etc. don’t match this claim. Obviously there could be other emails, but no one has said anything anywhere near this story.
Unless he actually testifies, the only way this defense can come in, is if he specifically had something like emails and conversations where he made these claims way back then.
 March 27, 2015 at 4:52pm
That explanation might convince some, but then he also sent personal belongings home. Which sure isn’t a sign that he planned on coming back.

If the report had not been declassified, it would not have been provided. You’re trying to say that the judge just says, hey address his request, add the Pentagon just declassifies it because of that. That’s not the way it works.
I completely understand that. I, just as you, absolutely think the timing of the release is political.
I posted a quote from the story. That's all.
 March 26, 2015 at 10:42am
If it were still classified, it would not have been provided. That’s what the issue is. The Pentagon declassified it, and apparently only those portions relating to Israel. If it were still classified, that 3 year wait would still be clocking up time.

Or if they seek treatment at the VA.

Someone on tv just said in the US it is required that 2 people be in the cockpit, so a flight attendant will go in when one of the pilots goes to the restroom.
