“….Alaska where the sea is swallowing villages and eroding shoreline.” ~ President Obama. Does the ocean have a hump in it such that the ocean is getting deeper in Alaska compared to any other place in the world? Waves travel across the ocean at approximately 500mph. At that rate it would take about 4 hours for that deeper water “swallowing up villages” in Alaska to show up in southern California. There are no reports of villages in California being swallowed up since Obama witnessed villages being swallowed up by the sea and shoreline eroded. Are we witnessing another Obama fact?

First choice for motive, political affiliation? We live in interesting times.
Lots happened to the public level of reasoning, thinking and virtues since the take over of public education by the central education agency.
Tree: "Political affiliation" is a start. Ironically from your moniker, did you forget that "The apple doesn't fall from from the tree?" Which leads to my next question. Where did you go to school? I mean beyond junior high? College maybe? Maybe not...
Tree: I have some friendly advice.
"Don't cut the branch that you're tied onto."
Trimmer: Before you get your shorts all in a twist, at least I didn't advise, "Lookout for overhead wires." lol

The dilemma being should we drop the bomb that releases that much heat or not.
The compromise is to drop fewer bombs and then explaining that the dust will block the sun thus cooling the world by an equal amount to the heat released by the bomb. This further explains why we have refrained from boots on the ground because bullets don’t make enough cloud cover to block sufficient sun light.
The hard to explain part is the pollution that hangs over valley communities. The pollution doesn’t block the sunlight coming from the sun, but does block the heat from escaping back to space. Therefore the net effect is the earth warms. Unfortunately this phenomenon can not be duplicated in a lab just as the smog saving characteristics of ethanol can not be measured by laboratory testing with the most accurate measurements.

” Missouri men need to man up and you need to learn that guns aren’t a magic bean that fixes every situation. The only thing that does that is duct tape.” ~ youdopes
Are assuming facts not yet in evidence? Because there is a gun available someone must die; that the teachers are all males in Missouri. Ultimately someone who knows all the applications of duct tape can get close enough to use the supreme control of duct tape.

“Then the teachers could have killed him. Good lord. You are dumb.” ~ youdopes
You knew ahead of time the girl was not going to be killed because of what rational actions by the man dragging the girl to his car? Have you seen Jacob Wetterling lately?

“A fight over custody of the girl could have harmed her.” ~ nc_writer
Being dragged down the stairs across the parking lots to his car didn’t have a chance of harming her? Are those the thoughts of a reasonable person?

The Dark Ages began as education was suppressed, as the question mark was made politically incorrect. The Dark Ages gave way to the resurrection of the question mark, ???. Freedom of education smiled on the world until a political ego felt the threat of knowledge’s light.
A curtain of darkness is being pulled over the Middle East. If the migration continues only ignorance will remain in the Middle East. The Dark Ages will return. Virtues, imagination, thinking and reasoning are being driven from the Middle East. The gears of human synergy will rust and stop. The entire Middle East will not have the capacity to make a pencil to record their history.
this country is well down the rabbit hole as well

Humans, individually being specialists who can not provide for all their own needs, are interdependent for their standard of living. When a trade restriction is imposed both sides are adversely affected because of the interdependence.
What is the long term expectation for a short term trade restriction?

Economic punishment resulted in:
Japan’s attack in 1941
What are the expectations of an economic attack? Submission, slavery… definitively not greater freedom or improved relations. Old countries have long histories of mutual distrust.
Prior to our Revolutionary War there were skirmishes between our colonies. Colonial settlers tended to arrive and settle in groups as they had lived in the Old Country, bringing with them Old Country scores to settle. Thankfully our Revolutionary War seemed erase many of those memories.
YEAH - but it's "coming to mind" again..........with the DC NEANDERTHAL still in office and we have to survive another year+ ?

Watch the mayor’s face and body as the police chief speaks. Are those reactions consistent with the chief’s narrative of innocence?
Find other videos of the mayor to see when he shifts and makes faces like that.

102 people, who the year before had lived in the Netherland, selected Plymouth Rock as the site of their first community. By spring, food issues, weather and illness had reduced their number to 53.
That spring an Indian, Samoset, stepped out of the woods and greeted these people in poor English. After a talking Samoset left and came back with Squanto whospoke better English and , in the remaining two years of his life, helped the new settlers in countless ways including negotiate the longest lasting treaty with the local Indians.
Both the Winslow letter and the Hilton letter talk of plenty of game, fish and decent crops in 1621. Hilton was on the second ship that arrived in November 1621 after the first Thanksgiving. Hilton describe the original 53 as of “good health, though they were left sick and weak, with very small means”.
By spring, when the Mayflower left, the surviving original 53 were very sick and weak, as a result even with abundance of fish, fowl and venison they were, apparently, too weak to take advantage. Yet the Winslow letter is filled with praise of God as is the Hilton letter.
Without the abundance it would have been very difficult for the weak and sick to survive.
After the Civil War the settlers at Plymouth Rock became collectively known as Pilgrims and were referred to as Pilgrims in FDR’s Thanksgiving Day proclamation.
The folks born the year Thanksgiving was set as the 4th Thursday graduated HS under 49 stars.

” One of things JFK was doing was phasing out the Federal Reserve. He had ordered the Treasury to begin issuing Silver Certificate paper currency.” ~ fivepercentdiscount3
There is a problem with your assertion. Its what the Constitution says “5: To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;” ~ United States Constitution
The federal government has not been given the authority to create and circulate currency.

“Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said … he supports free speech …, but … there should … be limits.”
When is free not free? When there are limits. Who decides the limits? Arne because he wouldn’t like the limits you or I set for him and the different limits we set for ourselves.

To know and not to have done is not to know yet.
We are fairly certain that the President has repeatedly lied to the American public, yet what have We the People done to measure and control our representative to head the Executive branch of our government?
We have allowed our school system to keep the public ignorant on what steps to take to insure integrity in our government. The best performing states will have the best performing local communities. The best performing local communities will have the best educated individuals. The best educated individuals will keep our elected representation in check.
The prime purpose of government, at all levels, is protection of unalienable rights. Our government is representative of the synergistic character of the nation, moral or immoral. Which best represent you, moral or immoral? High levels of honesty corresponde to high levels of morality.
I have contacted my senator many times, most recently about refugees, and get all kinds of excuses.
I have suggested impeachment. Answer.. it begins in the house. I know a lot of people contact reps but nothing happens.
The truth is the regular conservative politicians feel obliged to follow the law. This makes it impossible to stop someone who has no regard for the law. They say.... it is very hard to impeach someone. They saw what happened when Eric the red was impeached. BIG FAT NOTHING
He cried racism and shut everyone up.
I put the onus on our elected reps to identify the problem and work to do whatever it takes.
Trump's followers are taking action by supporting a candidate who will do what it takes to straighten out this mess. The congress is just waiting for bozo to leave. Maybe they get threatened by certain people. We know the WH digs up dirt on anyone who opposes them.
The problem is I don't think we can wait 14months. I think they have the plan in motion to finish the job
And vets in Arizona are policing the border... so they are doing something too.
And then there are people so busy working that they don't know and/or don't believe what this fraud is doing.
Very tough to get rid of a bad gov't employee... let alone the chief. A narcissist should never have all this power.

Become POTUS and just sweep things away.
Lot of power in one hand. Read about the circumstances leading up to WWII. Single individuals with massive power to just solve problems had a lot to do with the cause of WWII.
That's why the size and scope of the US government needs to be reduced drastically ASAP. Trump is most likely to do this...maybe Cruz. Trump wouldn't sweep the power into his hands so your concerns are a non-starter. It's Obama that has a pen and a phone and a willingness to go around congress and the constitution, remember? Thanks for playing though.

How is the EPA or anyother regulatory agency constitutional?
Regulartory make regulations with the power of law. Regulations that cause a person to be fined or imprisioned. Did you or any one you know vote for any member of any government agency? Therefore you and I can be taxed without representation. Can you find that enumerated power being given to the federal government?
Our problem is, whether we agree or disagree government having agencies, what can we do to control or get rid of them? Said another way, if something is unconstitutional what can we do about it?

From 1620 to 1917 churches and parents administrated public schools. In 1917 the last state to pass compulsory education laws, Mississippi, made it unanomous nationwide, the State controlled public education and bad things in education begin to happen.
By the 1920s thinking and reasoning were being taught less and less, replaced by muiltiple choice testing. By 1965 the oldest philosphy book on life style and governing were removed from public school libraries. 1970 inagurated the first school shooting and the recognition that scholastic scores were tumbling lower. The Iowa Basic Skills test, which had been rising for 25 years, dramatically fell in 1967 and was replaced in 1970 with NAEP testing. Those scores have been repeatedly normalized to keep them from indicating a continuous free fall.
Public education is a $5 Billion dollar annual cash cow that will be hard to shut down. Public education has little concern for producing educated graduates, the union emphasis has been teacher pay and benefits for decades.

Which fits best with our Constitution? No Muslims or Security test?
Our current immigration laws have a screening component but not which religion. While colonies we had which religion and the bad religion was Catholic because of their behavior in the Old Country.
Of course the Security Test will bring the flow to a trickle and confidence to a high. We have, as we have done before, turned a blind eye to certain laws because We the People were poorly educated by our schools and fell for the emotional component of why people immigrate.
Our shinning cities on a hill are there because of our blind legal system not because of enlightened representation in politics.
Why is a security test not sufficient? Measure that. We can improve anything to the degree we can measure it.
