Sure, we'll just raise taxes again to pay for all the trees and the HSR. Then we'll drain even more water from the farmers in the valley to irrigate those trees. Yep, that's a sound plan for sure.

Nice and interesting article - but for goodness sakes, doesn't anyone proofread anymore? If I were a teacher, I'd fail the student who turned something in peppered with so many unforgivable mistakes. The writer clearly did not take the time to even cursorily reread the text, or else he has a woeful command of English ... 😵😵😵

I learned that who doesn’t look for you, doesn’t miss you and who doesn’t miss you doesn’t care for you… that destiny determines who enters your life but you decide who stays… that the truth hurts only once and a lie every time you remember it. There are three things in life that leave and never return: words, time and opportunities… therefore, value whoever values you and don’t treat as a priority whoever treats you as an option.

More like scumbags who destroy life-savings, 401k's, etc., specifically when Republicans destroy regulations Dems put in place to safeguard investors. See: Trump deregulating Obama's implemented regulations, Bush Jr deregulation of Clinton's implemented regulations and so on.
$100 bucks says another financial collapse will occur now that Trump deregulated Obama's regulations of banks, Wall Street and so on. Trump literally made legal the robbery of life-savings, 401k's, etc. Scumbag.

You fucking IDIOTS for equivocating the two parties, as if all things are equal.

Hold up, Mr. Shapiro. This is not a tribalistic world. Your America is a tribalistic country, which you, as a typical American, believe to be the entire world. There are many countries that do not think that way. Don't lump the rest of us into your mess. Thanks; A Proud Canadian.

Ban all the fucking guns , that'll help for a start.
Nobody apart from law enforcement and private hire work are allowed guns.
Stop selling them at the gun shows and supermarkets , close down all the gun shops on streets .
Make it harder to legally obtain a gun.
That would be better than post traumatic stress bob who'll flip one day and kill the whole school wouldn't it.
06/24/2017 at 20:17
Sorry but that argument doesn't fly Jessie. There have been citizens with guns at shooting incidents and police with guns people still died. Banks still get robbed even with armed guards. Armored trucks get robbed. It stops when sensible gun laws are passed. More guns is not the answer it's the problem.
06/24/2017 at 20:32
Ridiculous argument. Not even worth the rebuttal I began typing. You don't need guns, they don't protect you. The USA is addicted to them and until you recognise that and deal with it there will be no end to Americans killing Americans with guns.

Ancestors had much more to contend with and the modernity that culminated over the last 250 years has removed us from nature.
Far less infant and maternal mortality in childbirth, far more release from arduous labor by the useful work of machines, and the eradication of density dependent disease by vaccine, public works, and environmental controls is the evolutionary force now.
