  1. You both are correct. The first two sentences of the OP are misleading.
  2. So where are the “thousands of jobs” Precedent Tramp lied about that would be added if the pipeline was approved??? Why isn't Keystone using the oil "to achieve American energy independence" instead of it being sold to foreign countries??? Tramp out!! Ya got a Hillary card too?
  3. Three possible scenarios: these 55 people simply sent their ballots in one day too late. post office didn't deliver the mail on time a combination of the above
  4. According to a report in The Hill, 55 ballots remain unopened and uncounted because the Postal Service delivered them to the board of elections 15 hours too late – and county officials refuse to unseal or tally them. Some Democrats in the state say a handful of ballots that officials refuse to open or count could be crucial in determining who controls the chamber. The Democrats only need to win one more seat to control the House of Delegates. Greg Riddlemoser, the Stafford County registrar, told Virginia Department of Elections Commissioner Edgardo Cortés in an email that he received the ballots at 10 a.m. the day after Election Day. For that reason, the Stafford County Electoral Board voted Tuesday against Counting the ballots, citing the law. Virginia’s state election laws say that absentee ballots must be received by 7 p.m. on Election Day. Unlike other jurisdictions across Virginia, Stafford County does not put unique bar codes on each ballot envelope, so there is no way to track exactly when The Ballots arrived at the post office.
  5. Defying Gloomy Predictions, Obamacare Enrollment Surges Sign-ups surged as soon as enrollment opened Nov. 1, easily surpassing the number of Americans getting coverage during the opening days of the final two sign-up periods under the Obama administration. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services reported Wednesday that nearly 1.5 million people had selected plans through last Saturday. The conventional wisdom was that enrollment would dip significantly as a hostile administration gutted outreach and marketing. Analysts at Standard & Poor’s projected that anywhere from 800,000 to 1.6 million fewer Americans would sign up for 2018 coverage. Instead, 876,788 individuals enrolled through HealthCare.gov during the second week of sign-ups alone — and that doesn’t count the states running their own markets and doing more ambitious outreach.
  6. He's lamenting the girl's perspective...not the parents'.
  7. PF - that's not what JTS is saying. He's lamenting the girl's perspective...not the parents'.
  8. Apparently, the privileged U.S. Olympic team swimmers involved in that Brazil kerfuffle last year didn't even need "the usual excuses" to escape the trappings of their "culture shock".
  9. Sorry. Different flow chart. WikiLeaks repeatedly contacted Jr., with 1 or 2 exceptions. You read links about as well as Donald Tramp.
  10. Report: Alabama Mall Banned Roy Moore In The ’80s For Pursuing Teens
  11. Seems like OJ wants the thread topic to read, "Where do Black kids learn to undervalue women?". Ms Maggie's observation of a generational gap (institutional sexism) is spot on.
  12. Fox News has managed to find a way to blame Hillary Clinton for Roy Moore’s illegal sexual contact with underage girls. LINK
  13. WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Republican Party’s Senate campaign wing has severed its fundraising deal with Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore, Politico reported on Friday, a day after allegations emerged that he initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32. Politico said Federal Election Commission paperwork filed on Friday showed the National Republican Senatorial Committee was no longer listed as part of a joint fundraising committee with the campaign of Moore, who is now 70, or the Alabama Republican Party and the Republican National Committee.

  14. So can you refute the documented facts (based upon a report in the Huffington Post) in paragraph 1 of my original post? Do you challenge the logic of the potential scenarios presented in paragraphs 2&3 that are based upon the facts in paragraph 1? If so, what do you think is a better set of potential scenarios? Considering sources of information, I even listen to Limbaugh & Hannity from time to time. No one here on Sunspot can put me in a box with a label. I saw something I felt was worthy of discussion and shared it here. So you, OJ, and Steveland can either share your thoughts on the topic at hand, or whine and moan about its source and continue to (attempt to) deflect away from a healthy discussion - based upon merit.
  15. Rudy Ray Moore didn't mess around with teenage girls. I hope you weren't attempting to state a "fact" there, OJ.
  16. Understood. My reply was really addressing Saticon's assumption that I considered informed opinion to be " settled science".
  17. You seem to be the only one "getting angry" on this thread. Who else is? And please, oh pretty pleeeze, quote me "using a speculative situation as if it is fact".
  18. I was with you until you stated, "I know its settled science with you folks..." I have never asserted anything to warrant that assumption.
  19. Not only that...The Palmer Report supplied a link to the Huffington Post article in my original post above. OJ obviously overlooked that in his haste to shoot (at) the messenger. OJ has disputed the message, but has yet to refute any of it.
