He’ll be re-elected even if he doesn’t run because the opposition, and even his own party, have no other competent people available. If there were anyone else, would they want to step into something so difficult in any case?

So, other than fixing health-related issues, and creating strong soldiers, what kind of babies would people like to design?

Hey Bass, insulting McCain, who is dead and can’t fight back, is hateful and stupid. It is neither a liberal nor a conservative idea. You should oppose such poor behavior even though your hero did it.

I happily discriminate against hate, fear, and stupidity wherever I find it. I find a lot coming out of Trump’s mouth.

Trump insults anyone who can’t fight back, but insulting a dead person is low even for Trump. I can only hope ghosts are real, and that they can kick hard.

The states in the US with the longest life expectancy are Hawaii and Minnesota. In both places people chow down on eggs. Maybe they would live longer if they didn’t, but it must not have such a huge effect.

took cell nuclei from a well-preserved mammoth discovered in 2011 in Siberian permafrost and placed them into several dozen mouse egg cells.

No dignity. Are they just trying to embarrass him? Might as well name him Mickey Mammoth while they’re at it.

Getting what you want and having someone else pay for it ... an interesting idea with a few drawbacks, but a long world history ... if you read history.

Posted in: Captain Marvel, a superhero with girl power to spare See in context

I don’t see the point of buying a story about a male superhero and changing his sex, his origin, his character, and/or his time period. The Ancient One in Dr. Strange is female now, Superman kills people, Batman needs a psychiatrist, Flash is a geek... I get it that there should be female superheroes, too, but don’t woman deserve original characters? By all reports, this movie is a dud in any case.

Currently, people run into walls and stop at the top of escalators with their phones. Now they’ll be running after and shooting each other? And then chatting? And then getting a nicer outfit? Please tell me there will be facilities to care for these people when they age...

The next notch up from, “That’s disappointing” is the dreaded, “That isn’t helpful.” Surely Kim will give in before.things escalate to that level.

Posted in: Guaido returns to Venezuela and a new phase in campaign See in context

So many US-based stories can’t seem to manage the accent over the “o” in Guaidó. I wonder why, in a country with so many Spanish speakers? At any rate, There has been surprisingly little violence so far. I hope that continues.

A lower increase is not the same as lower spending. There is an economic slowdown, yes, but spending on defense is still going up.

Trump won’t be impeached, I think.. The NY lawsuit, though, might cost him money, and he can only pardon himself for breaking federal laws, not state laws.

What we're hoping is that the authorities in Venezuela will see this wonderful, peaceful concert ... and that the soldiers will do that right thing," Branson said.

Cabello is man behind the scenes who has helped Venezuela get into this poor position. He is very aggressive. Having a “wonderful, peaceful concert” in front of such a person seems like a tragedy waiting to happen. Pressure is one thing, but sending concert-goers into such a volatile situation seems unwise.
