Dems Should Not Be Naive – There Was No Blue Wave And No Left-Leaning Mandate

Dems Should Not Be Naive – There Was No Blue Wave And No Left-Leaning Mandate

As I read many political columns and listen to the speeches and interviews of Democratic leaders (such as President-elect Biden, Speaker Pelosi, Minority Leader Schumer, and supposed transition team members), I am amazed at the stark contrast between them and the political naivete of many of them.

Here is my advice to our incoming elected officials: there was no wave – either red or blue. Don’t think that there was. No one won everything that they wanted – in fact, except for the Presidency, the Democrats pretty much failed and were by and large rejected.

I agree with President-elect Biden that he needs to be the President for all Americans. But will he? It is no secret that I am pretty sure that Mr. Biden will be a wimp of a President. I thought he was a terrible pick for the Democratic Party. He is a poster child for almost everything that is wrong with our federal politics.

This is wrong! DC protestors harass diner

This is wrong! DC protestors harass diner

This is so wrong. Protestors have every right to protest but they do not have the right to demand that others join them in their protest nor do they have the right to invade the personal space as a crowd in another individual.

Lock them up and throw away the key

Lock them up and throw away the key

Surveillance cameras inside the store show about 60 boys and girls storming into the Walgreens at around 10 p.m. on 4th of July in Philadelphia.

This is a terrible display of wanton destruction and disregard for the law, personal safety, and personal property.

I am sure with all of these images, they will catch all of them. The solution is simple – lock them up for a LONG time.

This is organized crime. These young people gathered at this Walgreens and knew they were going to vandalize it and do massive robbery. By their sheer size of numbers, the employees of the Walgreens were unable to stop the destruction and it appears that objects were thrown at them by some of the hoodlums. Since they were are colluding together, they should all include the charge of aggravated assault on top of their acts of inciting a mob, vandalism, armed robbery, and trespassing.

An excellent view of America by a 26-year-old young lady from a Facebook post. Well written thoughts.

“I’m sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis trying to think of what to write about. I scroll through my newsfeed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of Democratic candidates calling for policies to “fix” the so-called injustices of capitalism.

I put my phone down and continue to look around. I see people talking freely, working on their MacBook’s, ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on me.

We live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous nation and we’ve become completely blind to it. Vehicles, food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose. These things are so ingrained in our American way of life we don’t give them a second thought. We are so well off here in the United States that our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average. Thirty. One. Times.

Our Blue Planet: Accidental discovery could save coral reefs

An accidental discovery is giving new hope for coral reefs.

Posted by BBC on Saturday, 20 October 2018

 

The industry of coral propagation seems to be reaching a state of enlightenment where the knowledge of fundamental procedures for the simple division of reef invertebrates is becoming time-tested and even commonplace. It is wonderful to see so many corals in captivity that once were thought to be impossible to keep alive not so long ago now routinely pruned like shrubbery. In gross terms, the captive propagation of coral may be categorized by the action of the event: induced passively, naturally occurring or imposed. Passive induction would include strategies of division that neither result in the immediate production of a free-living clone, nor will they necessarily occur unassisted. Rather, such techniques are methods for spurring budding through fission. Some examples of the induced passive division include slicing or notching the periphery of the stolon mat of hardy soft corals such as Star Polyp (Pachyclavularia) or nicking the exposed and illuminated stalk of a leaning (or forcibly tilted) stalk of an Alcyoniid, which often spurs the budding growth of beautiful multi-stalked colonies. Natural strategies of captive coral propagation occur with various manipulations and/or imitations of natural dynamics of the reef environment and are being seen with increasing regularity. They are indeed some of the most interesting events to behold and the subject of another discussion altogether. Indeed, harnessed natural reproductive events like planulae harvest are the future of our trade.
