A question for you liberals

What do you think Trump is trying to do in his struggle with China over their predatory trade practices?

These guys have beards and moustaches, so they MUST know what they are saying

She married her uncle?

I'm not clear on this whole grandmother thing with Tlaib.

How is "Muftia Tlaib" Rashida's grandmother when Tlaib is her married name?

I heard she married her uncle (her mother's brother) when she was 22, and divorced him in 2015, when she was about 39.

She had two sons with her uncle?

The grandmother in question, is the mother of her mother, and the mother of her uncle/husband?

Such incestuous marriages (and the resulting high birth defect rate) are common in the Islamic world. About half of marriages in Afghanistan are between first cousins.

Rashida Tlaib threw her own grandmother under the bus

“Silencing me & treating me like a criminal is not what (my grandmother) wants for me," she wrote. "It would kill a piece of me. I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in – fighting against racism, oppression & injustice."

She is going to regret refusing to visit her grandmother if she dies before she ever sees her again…….or will she?
This woman would rather play politics than visit her own grandmother


I was recently asked in view of trump's plans for a post glacial Greenland, is it time to update any climate change predictions.

I think it is too soon for Trump to execute his plan to invade Greenland. Life there exists under extreme Arctic conditions: currently, an ice cap covers about 80 percent of the island, restricting human activity largely to the coasts.

The first humans are thought to have arrived in Greenland around 2500 BC. At that time, Greenland was a lush island, covered with vegetation, but after the occupants built large wind and solar farms, and began using hydrogen to power their SUVs, the island climate changed, resulting in a total coverage of ice, and the people died.

The ancestors of the Inuit Greenlanders who live there today appear to have migrated there later from Portugal, around AD 1200, from northwestern Greenland. Ian Columbus led an expedition there, funded by its queen.

While the Inuit survived in the icy world of the Little Ice Age, the early Norse settlements along the southwestern coast disappeared, leaving the Inuit as the only inhabitants of the island for several centuries.

In 1721, aspiring to become a colonial power, Denmark-Norway sent a missionary expedition of illegal immigrants to Greenland with the stated aim of reinstating Christianity among descendants of the Norse Greenlanders who may have reverted to Islam. When the missionaries found no descendants of the Norse Greenlanders, they baptized the Inuit Greenlanders they found living there instead. Denmark-Norway then imposed import and export tariffs on the inhabitants, who were practicing predatory trading policies along the coast, thereby imposing a trade monopoly and other colonial privileges on the area.

Trump should wait until his last year in office, 2024, when his climate change plan will have melted at least another 40 percent of the island. Then, his invasion will yield better living conditions, especially after he institutes his Inuit ban, and we can enjoy the following few years the earth has left, which democrats predict will end in 2038.

This poor woman did not have a fucking CLUE what was happening after Hurricane Katrina. Her ignorance of how disaster relief worked and her desire to play politics after the hurricane resulted directly in the deaths and suffering of hurricane victims.

This day in history 32 years ago

On August 16, 1987, Northwest Flight 255 crashed shortly after taking off from Detroit Metropolitan Airport, killing 156 people.

The flight was headed to California when it left the gate in Detroit. The DC-9 Super 82 pilots forgot to conduct their pre-flight checks, as a result, the warning system never turned on.

This lead to the plane's wing flaps failing to extend prior to takeoff. As the plane rushed down the runway, it lifted only 40 feet off the ground. The plane hit lampposts and a rental-car office. It then crashed onto Middlebelt Road and struck vehicles, killing two people on the ground.

The plane began to break apart, bursting into flames as it hit a railroad and an overpass on I-94. There was only one survivor from the crash, 4-year-old Cecelia Cichan. (See interviews with her below)
As of 2013, the crash is the fourth-deadliest aviation accident in U.S. history.

The victims of the crash included NBA player Nick Vanos, seven people from Orange County, California and a four-month old baby from Arizona. More than 30 of the passengers were under 25.
A black granite memorial was built in 1994 to commemorate the victims. It sits at the top of a hill at Middlebelt Road and I-94.

As of 2014, Northwest, now owned by Delta, continues the retirement of 255 as a flight number.
The NTSB Investigation

The National Transportation Safety Board conducted a full investigation of the crash.
Their final report was released in May, 1988, which blamed the pilot for the crash.
The National Transportation Safety Board determines that the probable cause of the accident was the flightcrew’s failure to use the taxi checklist to ensure that the flaps and slats were extended for takeoff. Contributing to the accident was the absence of electrical power to the airplane takeoff warning system which thus did not warn the flightcrew that the airplane was not configured properly for takeoff. The reason for the absence of electrical power could not be determined.
