72% Cut in Clean Energy Research

Postby Bart Stewart » Thu Feb 01, 2018 1:57 am

The Mafioso-in-Chief is seeking to cut 72% from clean energy research in the United States.

Meanwhile the Koch brothers are planning to spend four hundred million dollars to elect Republicans to Congress in 2018.

For high-school seniors - this is a great opportunity. Complete a degree in science and find many job openings as the US gets back to work following the 2020 elections.

The Better is the enemy of the pretty awful.
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

I dunno, before she declared in a Trumpian way that she would not run, I heard her main goal would be to bring all americans togethers. Imagine having to bring a homeless person to your home for dinner? Having to mentor a stray child?? I mean: after Watching Trump on TV for years, what he would do in office was a sure bet. ................... Same with Ophra.

Just Look! We'd be better off with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. He knows how to tag team, and thats what we need.

On a list somewhere - I believe that Ophra was 11th or so. I doubt that she will run.

Even if you "kinda" wanted the job..........the incessant partisan power attacks, would have to be accepted as the reality of the "job." Its why only egotists, or those seeking personal gain, will take on the job. I mean.......I read my own words and I think about Obama. Why did he want to be president? Tremendous display of "leading from behind" if he actually had a personal agenda. always the possibility.......that he "led" as much as he could without an organized coup/assassination taking place? Not often reported: more death threats than any other Pres in history. Thats gotta be a drawback.

Well, time is overdue for a black female president. If Oprah does not run, you will have to chase up Michelle Obama. She would be great.

And... Michelle isn`t even on the list of top 20s... skin color is a poor attribute upon which to vote.


Edit --- drat that `a`...

I sincerely doubt Oprah would want to be the Commander in Chief.

Lard, save me from your followers.
