Now the (retiring) Republican Senator Rob Portman, of Ohio, has stood up and spoken out about crazies in elected office. Specifically, Marjorie Taylor Greene, but clearly he is concerned about the trend towards extremism in the Republican Party in as whole. Quote Republican Sen. Rob Portman on Sunday said his party's leaders "ought to stand up" against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene

Detecting exoplanets is still at a messy, early-stage of development. It's entirely possible that they will find some problem in their technology, methods, or analysis that lead them to throw this entire idea out.

The looniness scale is not what I am referencing. The tendency of people of any sort of believe what they want to believe is what I am concerned with. Since Republicans are a loony lot, and have been for decades now, they tend to want to believe loonier things than Democrats. Until some serious media outlets start to show that they have noticed this, researched at least some of it, and find it co

The numbers who would like to leave Hong Kong are too many for Britain to absorb by itself. They are probably consulting with other members of the Commonwealth to see who can handle how many refugees. But, the PRC government may already be ahead of everyone. They have officially revoked their recognition of the British National Overseas passport: Quote China derecognizes British Natio

And what other sources have any of this 'information' so far? Right now, I think the conspiracy theory barriers should be kept in place. Remember: "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." That applies to all the loony stories about Democratic leaders being child-molesting cannibals on the right, and to stories about Trump partisans attending blatant planning meetings for a co

This is hilarious... the stock storm has rescued AMC by allowing its huge debt to be converted to stock.

IF you trust the stock market at all, which many people rightly do not, the thing for the small investor to do is buy an "index fund" and then leave it alone. "Mutual Funds" eat your gains in the form of management fees. And then don't provide any benefit for the management. They have literally done studies that show monkeys are just as good at choosing which stocks to invest

This is an interesting puzzle for stellar evolution theories. A star system about 200 light years away seems to have five of its six planets with interlocking resonant orbits. That's when the ratios of planetary orbits match cleanly, such as one planet having three orbits in the same time another planet has just one. Theorists are wondering how this complex set of relationships could exist. Is it

Yes, yes, that's absolutely right. If another hedge fund had done this, there would have been no whining about it from the rulers of Wall Street. Because, the money would be staying in the right hands -- the club of 'rich people' who know they deserve to be rich. Instead a bunch of amateurs talking to each other on message boards like Reddit have pinned a major hedge fund to the wall and cost the

It won't be an empty husk. It will be a zombie trying to devour everyone else. This is the real story in politics today. The "Republican Party" is being devoured from within. The nutcases that Il Dufus drew into the party are driving out the remaining relatively sane Republicans. There were always some far-right loonies in the party, but they could never dominate it for long. Loonie

Bernie is more hawkish than you might think on foreign policy issues, and he's very carefully (not vocally, since it doesn't play well with his fans on other issues) against gun control here at home. But he votes very consistently against stricter gun controls. Remember what state he represents. Vermont is a mostly rural state. The entire American political spectrum is on the right end of the re

There are a number of typos, mostly missing spaces, but also some clunkers like "November 9, 2019" as the date when an article was published in Moskovsky Komsomolets about Trump "nine hours and 20 minutes" after he was declared the next President. I think the election was in 2016? :D But still, an interesting read.

We probably won't be able to stop the use of GMO, despite the remaining uncertainties. Remember, whatever gets put into living organisms has the potential to be 'in the environment' for the rest of the duration of life on this planet. Billions of years. That's even longer than nuclear waste. But I don't think GMO will be the crucial technology that gets us to where we need to be in food produc

Right now, the PH of the oceans is decreasing (becoming more acidic) -- because they are absorbing the increased CO2 from the atmosphere -- and this is having a noticeable effect on shell-building organisms. They are having a more difficult time accumulating the calcium to build their shells. Since we know that increasing atmospheric CO2 by itself is having this effect, we do have to wonder if co

The US Federal Government is different from many other 'democratic' governments around the world. In the UK, for example, almost all of their administration is career civil servants (the 'deep state' that the conspiracy nuts fear) and they can change power to new ministers (the actual elected members of Parliament) literally the next day.

Sad to say, he's not going to be gone for long. The Impeachment trial in the Senate will bring him back into the headlines for sure. And though there has been a surprising silence from all those prosecutors working on more mundane criminal cases, they will file their charges sooner or later. It's not surprising that the DC Attorney has not filed. It can take months to put a legal case together, a

The Qtards are really grasping at straws now. March 4th is the original date of the Presidential transition. With the July 4th 'founding' holiday and Election day in early November, there was a major Constitutional event every 4 months. Imagine if we had to wait until March 4th to get rid of Il Dufus!

Yes, the whole thing was planned out in the open. But remember, the Il Dufus administration ordered Federal law agencies to stop watching far-right extremists and remove them from their lists of terrorist threats almost as soon as they came into office. That was probably Steve Bannon's doing.

The Capitol Insurrection was a misstep that has discredited the movement, temporarily. They are now afraid of appearing too violent and dangerous to the larger population. This is analogous to the Oklahoma City Bombing in 1995. Most people have forgotten, but there was a rising militia movement in the 1990s, also. It was growing already but really galvanized by the Branch Davidian siege at Wa

That's a "sigh of relief" effect. Now that Il Dufus is really out of power, he can't do any more crazy damaging things to the entire country with the stroke of a pen.
