Re: California attempt at colonizing Georgia rebuffed

Well, another repudiation of the Dems. I was under the impression that Georgia was normally a Republican stronghold anyway - so what can you expect? Exactly this. So much analysis this morning is total nonsense, meant just to fill column-inches. The bottom line is that it's a district so red that i...

Re: California attempt at colonizing Georgia rebuffed

Well, another repudiation of the Dems. I was under the impression that Georgia was normally a Republican stronghold anyway - so what can you expect? To win! After spending all that cash, the Dems expected to win. They outspent the Rep. candidate 7 to 1. Yet they did not sway the electorate. This do...

Re: Asian rock group wins right to call themselves, "The Slants".

Yes, cass, as a regular reader of your posts over the years, I know exactly to whom you are referring. It's interesting to reflect on how accomplished folks in now-Muslim lands were before Islam arrived - Sumer, Egypt, Persia, and, yes, the Srivijaya kingdom. Islam does have a debilitating effect. ...

Re: Ice Age.

I am getting this from my College Geo Prof. The rain belts shifting is not a 1:1 relation to how much more northern temps rise. Plus if you get a mix of first heavy snow cover then rain then freezing conditions, the resulting ice tends to stick around much longer than just snow would I can see your...

Re: The 6'8" Gummi Worm

I lived for the first 32 years of my life under an authoritarian regime, which was less enlightened than Putin's rule, and I know that if not taken to repressive extremes such regimes are well accepted by most people.

Re: The 6'8" Gummi Worm

I watched part of his Q&A session on television and I think I am smart enough to recognize intelligence and wit... In fact, my admiration for Putin has increased another notch. He answered all questions in a serious manner, showing respect for the people who asked the questions. He was an intellige...

Re: Cuba Scrambles As Venezuela’s Oil Industry Collapses

Cuba Scrambles As Venezuela’s Oil Industry Collapses If oil is found in Cuba, it will be a game-changer, but not necessarily for the Cubans. Australia-based Melbana Energy Ltd. has estimated that their Cuban assets contain as much as 637 million barrels of recoverable oil and the company is beginni...
