    The amount of energy necessary to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude larger than is required to produce it.

    When the Buddhists end game become the submission of all other cultures / religions, you may have a point.

    Until then, you don't.

    This is really sad.

    As someone from NorthWestern Ontario, I can directly relate to the damage that false hope creates when it comes to industry and manufacturing jobs.

    Creating false hope in order to gain votes is the most vindictive (yet extremely common) political tactic in the book. You're taking advantage of desperate people.

    They sound like prime candidates to be easily influenced by Facebook ads.

    The solution is simple.

    So genocide is fine, as long as it's not targeting good white folk? Is that what you're trying to say?

    Just waiting for all the facts to come out. It's not good to jump to conclusions.

    Trump signs GOP repeal of consumer banking rule apnews.com/19bb932be8724b…

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has signed the repeal of a banking rule that would let consumers join together to sue their bank or credit card company to resolve financial disputes.

    The president signed the measure at the White House privately. Journalists were not present for the signing.

    3/ Honeycutt often says toxic chemicals aren’t as dangerous as we think they are. He said this about EPA’s mercury standard:

    4/ Honeycutt has also said ozone (aka smog) pollution rules are too strict because Americans spend most of their time indoors…

    Replying to @lisalsong
    6/ Honeycutt’s dept loosened air quality guidelines for benzene. Even oil lobbyists knew—in 1948--there was no real safe dose of benzene.

    Replying to @lisalsong
    7/ Honeycutt’s appt = part of Pruitt’s rule banning scientists w/EPA grants from serving on the board. But industry-funded scientists are ok

    12/ Honeycutt would join his friend Michael Dourson, nominated as EPA toxics chief. Dourson helped Honeycutt loosen Texas air rules.

    13/ As @fastlerner reported, Dourson believes kids are less sensitive to chemical toxins than adults. theintercept.com/2017/10/03/epa…

    I don't know if there is a more damaging thing about this administration than anti-science Jesus freaks running the EPA.

    Just have to pray to Jesus there will be enough time left to slow down the damage done.

    Johnny then continued to argue about trump crap at 4:58. You first bring up the terrorist attack at 5:28...

    There was no time from when I posted at 4:25 to 5:30 that they talked about nothing else.

    You're response from when I called you on your comment that CNN was still talking about Meuller was so passive aggressive (" I considered counterattacking you but decided it's just not worth it.")
    Oohh we are so beneath you. (" The discourse here has degraded to third grade level. )

    Then you went with the #both sides argument, and now are asking people to not insult others??? Come on.

    Give it a rest Hoss, I'm good with you disliking me but I didn't stoop to name calling. I included myself in the request. The discourse is bottom barrel, nothing wrong with cleaning it up a bit.

    I'd say the first step to cleaning up bottom barrel discourse would be not to allow blatant racism, and if people are repeatedly going to do it... get rid of them.

    You still canít point to one single example of racism in anything Iíve posted.

    Perhaps I should consult with my attorney.

    I did.... 2 examples today.

    Just cause you live in an alternate reality... doesn't mean what you say is true.
