I like the Green Manhattan Project! I'll bet it would get some Democrat votes too. The Green New Deal didn't get a single Democrat vote in the Senate. 43 Democrats did vote Present though. Profiles in courage, those Democrats. Wink

Mmmmm. Politicians practicing "politics." Who knew?

Here is my take. Climate Change is a major crisis and here is why:

1. It is real and immediate action is needed, (or)
2. It is fake and we have people willing to destroy the planet to “save it”

The #GreenNuclearDeal solves for both.

Last night on 60 Minutes they had a piece on a Russian climatologist who's been talking about climate change for over 30-40 years and was previously dismissed as a cook. Until all of his predictions started to play out.

Anyway, his thought on how to stop, or slow down climate change and particularly carbon release in the permafrost is to cut down trees and reintroduce species of animals that once grazed those areas. Including Wooly Mammoths. According to him, trees trap heat in the ground and make it easier for the permafrost to thaw and release more carbon. If you can eliminate trees in those areas, it will keep them cooler and slow the climate issues, if not reverse them. He's already trying it by reintroducing horses, bison and I think yaks and cutting down trees. It has apparently had some results in the areas they've done it in.

So, it will take longer to fix interstate bridges than it did to build all of them? That makes sense.

Why do people who have been vaccinated care so much about people who choose not to be?

While vaccines are generally pretty effective, depending on the vaccine, somewhere between 1-5 % of those who are vaccinated fail to develop immunity.
When enough people are vaccinated against a certain disease the germs can't travel as easily from person to person and the entire community is less likely to get the disease. While a certain disease may just make you and me feel miserable for a few days for those who have weakened immune systems the consequences can be much worse.
It's just smart for everyone to get vaccinated. Last Winter the flu vaccine wasn't as effective as it normally is. It was one of the worst flu epidemic years we've had in a long time. My mom was hospitalized at Memorial in Springfield for several days before being released. Some elderly weren't so fortunate and didn't survive. Memorial was actually having to turn away some patients because they ran out of beds. Certainly the situation wouldn't have been so bad if everyone would have been vaccinated.

I guess I could see that. There seems to be a lot of effort being put in to protecting 1-5% of the population.

Meanwhile, a man who has changed his name to Charlamagne Tha God is calling Trump the most insecure man in America.

Here's why Trump doesn't want his tax returns released.

From Hillary's 2015 return:
Wages, salary & tips $100
Refund: $1,039,790

This is absolutely TRUE. $100 in wages. A million dollar refund. See the link below. However, it's ENTIRELY out of context and doesn't talk about business income, etc.

95% of Americans can't do their own taxes without a CPA/software. 99.99% of Americans couldn't decipher Trump's. 100% of #FakeNews will feed you parts of his return to further their agenda.

Hillary's:  https://s3.amazonaws.com/pdfs.taxnotes.com/2019/HR_Clinton_2015.pdf?fbclid=IwAR2T8yVVHJFuQov9i3EObvl1pvGl4IVgQuaz_Zha8RsK1z0w5EKcg-e8N0Y

Why not just release the return then and put everything to rest. After all there's nothing to hide, right?

See above. Most Americans can't figure out a 2-page 1040. The MSM will pick one out-of-context line and broadcast it for days.

They blew up a quote he made in May of 2018 about MS-13 gang members into an anti immigrant insult yesterday. I don't necessarily blame him for not wanting to open himself up to exactly what BW is talking about.

Candidate Trump said many times that he would release his tax returns. I guess he is just another lying politician.

Doesn't surprise me at all but I know a lot of folks who think he's the greatest President ever and just swear by the guy. I actually agree with him on a few issues but as a person I don't care for him at all.

I start every in-person debate with NeverTrumpers by stipulating:

1) He is a liar
2) He is an asshole

After we agree on those two points, all we have left is his accomplishments.... Economy, jobs, TPP, Paris Accords, Jerusalem, 2 SCOTUS, 100 FedJuds, NK, ISIS, 30k fewer federal employees, less regulations, yada yada, yada...

I'll be happy to explain the tax returns to all of America.
