    It was Trump's typical lack-of-control style of wacky in announcing the idea to the world that makes it impossible to take seriously. Being a politician Truman was more discreet:

    It's worth reading because it gives some idea of why and how Sander's plan would likely work.

    It's a jet turbine.
    A rocket gets it up to speed, then the air gets compressed into the jet, and the reactor superheats the air to blast it out the exhaust.
    Thing is, it just peppers the landscape...

    How would a nuclear powered engine even work? I guess it heats a fluid that turns a propeller or turbine, right? But then somewhere in the cycle you need to cool the fluid. You'd probably need a huge...

    Making capitalism works comes down to making it easier for all adult citizens to acquire capital (i.e., savings). I think Europe is doing this by helping to prevent people from losing all their...

    But your idea about rare earths is not bad. Even without the issue of acquiring Greenland, the World needs to diversify the supply of these metals and not be so dependent on China for them. I...

    Why would we want to? It might have potential for mining rare earth elements which I think is currently limited to China and Afghanistan. Is there a military defense angle?

    I think that might be the case. They caved under the onslaught of lobbying and the Republican steamroller. And in 2016 she just wasn't able to express that vision for some reason. She just came...

    It does precisely that.



    No, he didn't. Hillary did decades ago and Obama finally was able to get it into motion in Congress. It has never left the forefront. Don't mistake your ignorance or...

    Jesus walking on the water. Dems have been "calling" for UHC for forty fucking years. As well as a rise in the minimum wage. Neither of these are Sanders' policies nor are they necessarily all...

    Of course. But the reality of the brain's mental representation of the external world is confined to a more limited context because it exists within the reality of the external world. The reality of...

    Sanders demonstrates more stridency and lack of equivocation than any other of the upstarts. Warren is a close second. I hope I have that much energy when I'm their age (or even when I wake up...

    Watched her lengthy interview with Chuck Todd on Sunday. Not impressed. Mostly very earnest but insubstantial platitudes. Scores one of the higher words spoken-to-content ratios.
