Re: North Korea

This kind of behavior is standard for Trump. It comes straight out of "The art of the deal". Be unpredictable. Change your mind. Walk away. Say contradictory things. Keep the other side guessing.

... There are more moving parts here, but the upshot is that there is beginning to be hard evidence that Trump is blackmailable by the Kremlin. ... Huh? All the recent negative actions of Trump towards Russia would seem to render this theory dead. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/06/us/politics/trum...

Re: The Trump Administration

Whether Alabama supports or not Trump is only part of the issue. Alabama supported a 'child molester', as Moore was called in some articles. ... Most, if not all, of those last minute (but 40 year old) staged accusations have been thoroughly debunked. I note that not one of the accusers has sworn o...

Re: The Trump Administration

Hmmmm....a Democrat just won a Senate seat in a state that Pumpkinhead won by 30 points just about a year ago.....perhaps a hint of what lies ahead in the 2018 mid/term elections?

Re: BCG Vaccine

Wasn't the vaccine-autism link completely debunked ? The doctor who started the scare was found to be a fraud in court in England. He faked the data.

Re: hydraulic or geo-engineer to find water table
