Almost nobody knows this, but Mother Jones has had a long running feud with her own crazy sister in law, Mother Goose...

Of course.

And I really am bothered by the way Trump comports himself in his behavior as President of the United States.

That said...conservative news outlets were talking about the way that Obama was ruining the country...

And before that...liberal news outlets were talking about the ways Bush W....was ruining the country...

And so forth before with Clinton, and Reagan (G.H.W Bush libs didn't care that much about) and Carter and Nixon/Ford and so forth...

Pretty much every president has been ruining this country going back to since Washington chose not to run for a third term...

More likely John Adams.

And the country isn't ruined.

It's just that every president leaves office with the country more close to ruin than it was when he took office.

Except in the eyes of supporters of the newly elected president.

The newly elected president is always the tits, in the eyes of his supporters.

Except we have yet to have a president who literally has or has had tits.

Taft looked like he had tits, but really they were just man boobs.

That's why we continually to refer to hypothetical presidents in male pronouns.

The alt-right and fundievangelicals have dragged conservativism so far to the right, that what was once considered to be centrist is now leftist. Billionaires like the Koch brothers have spent millions lobbying and influencing public opinion by attempting to turn government programs and services into some kind of Marxist plot. As well as villifying unions as all being run by mob syndicates for organized crime.

I don't recall reading anything in that article about the earth only being 6,000 years old, personally I don't subscribe to that theory, some of the artifacts on mars and the moon are hundreds of thousands of years old for krised sakes

The film later grew to cult status, once it was released on VHS video, like many sci-fi flicks before and after it.

Not so much about what was happening on Earth climate-wise, and the film was set in the rainy Pacific Northwest, where coincidentally most tech companies are located. I haven't watched the long delayed sequel yet, although I do have a downloaded bootleg copy of it.


But I don't have to directly experience the effects of climate change in the weather outdoors every day to know that its real, not to mention the distinct lack of varied bird species, bats, squirrels, and beneficial insects like spiders, honeybees, bumblebees, and butterlies where I live now, less than 2 miles from my childhood home in the 60s, when such natural diversity in my neighborhood was once plentiful.
