Meanwhile, while all those "Obamagate" heads are rolling (lol):

UK was given details of alleged contacts between Trump campaign and Moscow
Those limey bastards!  How dare they wiretap Trump!

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Friday that his recusal from Justice Department investigations into the 2016 campaign for president will extend into inquiries into the activities of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, under fire for his ties to foreign governments.

Trump picks a pointless fight with a key ally at the wrong time

Quote
Donald Trump had already taken unnecessary steps to alienate South Korea, a key U.S. ally. The American president said he'd already dispatched an "armada," led by an aircraft carrier, towards the peninsula, when in reality, he hadn't. Trump added insult to injury by declaring, falsely, that the Korean Peninsula "used to be a part of China."

For reasons that don't appear to make any sense, Trump is apparently trying to make matters worse. The Washington Post reported:
Quote
President Trump threatened to terminate the U.S. trade agreement with South Korea in an interview Thursday night, declaring that the five-year-old accord with a key ally was "a horrible deal" that has left America "destroyed."

During an Oval Office interview about trade policy in North America, Trump served notice that he is looking to disrupt an important partnership in the tumultuous Asia-Pacific region as well -- even with Seoul on edge because of North Korea's escalating military provocations.

Of course the orange moron hasn't a clue what is in that agreement.
South Korea was once part of China in the same sense that Portuguese is a mixture of Spanish and French.

So you guys are biased as hell against my goat system just based upon your own  uninformed speculation. You have no appreciation for the experimental process involved in creating something new for rabbits - a mobile colony which I'm not sure has ever been done by anyone anywhere.   And you are freaking out over my loss of a piglet which was an honest mistake due to brand new experimental systems.

So not only do you guys suck at science yourselves, but you are total hypocrites because you accuse me of sucking at science while committing even worse scientific misdeeds than I do.

In short, you are complete assholes.

And it's good that I'm finding this out. Because 11 years ago I was under the impression that people with advanced science degrees were generally decent human beings.  Boy was I wrong!
If you run into an asshole in the morning, you ran into an asshole. If you run into assholes all day, you're the asshole.

So it appears to me that Trump is going to accomplish what his predecessor failed to do... Renegotiate NAFTA to make a better deal for the US.   And yeah ... He will have done it by playing poker basically.
You're not much of a poker player, are you?   Its only a bluff it your opponents don't know you're full of shit as soon as you place your bet.  If you actually follow through on a wild bet to show you're serious, you end up broke. (which you do know something about, actually)  

Trump is too predictable.  Prime Minister Trudeau's first thought was almost certainly "Oh, he's doing that 'book' thing, again.  That's cool, I guess."

"I loved my previous life. I had so many things going," Trump told Reuters in an interview. "This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier."
I can see an obvious solution...

Also LOL:

More than five months after his victory and two days shy of the 100-day mark of his presidency, the election is still on Trump's mind. Midway through a discussion about Chinese President Xi Jinping, the president paused to hand out copies of what he said were the latest figures from the 2016 electoral map.

"Here, you can take that, that's the final map of the numbers," the Republican president said from his desk in the Oval Office, handing out maps of the United States with areas he won marked in red. "It's pretty good, right? The red is obviously us."

He had copies for each of the three Reuters reporters in the room.

"Hehe ... Mexicans and Canadians"

So do you think Trump was lying today when he said both presidents called him up wanting to renegotiate NAFTA?

Canada doesn't have a President.     Do you think they called Trump begging him to make deals with them?

Lizzie.

Breathe deeply.

Focus.

When I say "no inputs"  that is merely a convenient shorthand for "no commercial feed, and no meds."

It does not mean that I will never ever have to purchase a bag of something to spread on my pasture if I am exporting milk off the property.  Perhaps I will maybe once a year or once every two years. Who knows?

Why is this so hard for you to get your head around?
Why is it so difficult for you to use words in the same way as the rest of the world does?
Its retroactive.  It signals that Dave is at least tangentially aware of the reality of the situation.

It was a joke
How many of the other things you've said are also "jokes"?  This isnt even close to your most moronic post.

We've been through this before.

From the only source Hawkins has (to my knowledge) ever cited on the subject of % rainforest canopy cover:

Quote
Our results document that the conversion of rainforest to extensive cacao agroforestry with high shading levels strongly impacts plant biomass and carbon storage as well as diversity of forest-using plant and insect species.The transition from forest to cacao agroforestry resulted in a loss of ~60% of the forest-based species with plant species being more strongly affected than mobile insect taxa. It seems reasonable to assume that rare, specialized, and endangered species are represented disproportionately high in this fraction (6), underlining the limitations of agroforestry for conser- vation of forest species (16). ...

In summary, our findings imply a concave, nonlinear relationship of canopy cover in agroforestry systems with biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. A doubling of income goes along with reduction of shade cover from ~80% to 35-50%, most likely resulting only in limited losses of biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. In contrast, the conversion of forests to agroforestry systems in the first place as well as the complete removal of canopy trees as the final step of land use intensification, each result in disproportionate ecological losses.
Hawkins's own source

There are decades of research on the effect of selective harvesting on the species diversity and health of the resulting ecosystem.  But Dave knows everything/i] about forestry and ecology already, so...

This old fight again...

This will hurt Canadian lumber companies a little, but there are other markets that may step up their orders for softwood. The real hurt will be on housing construction in the US.

Sorry about your virgin forests, USians. :(
China will take it.  There are lots of half empty container ships going that way currently.

Quote
Claiming the U.S. has been "taken advantage of" under the Clinton-era NAFTA trade deal, President Trump Monday night opened a trade war with Canada, announcing a retroactive 20 percent "tax" on lumber imports, and promising a similar tax on Canadian milk.

"Canada has treated us very unfairly," the president said in impromptu remarks at a reception for conservative journalists. "We have been taken so advantage of," he said, speaking it the Roosevelt Room.
Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who accompanied the president into the reception, said that the "countervailing duty" would be retroactive 90 days. He said that was when Canada was warned to stop subsidizing their lumber industry. The countervailing duty is meant to offset the subsidy

By "Subsidising" they mean that we allow logging on government owned land, apparently.  (Never mind that American milk production is massively subsidised.)

But, Trump has a plan!

Quote
What's more, he said that deregulation efforts are already underway at the Environmental Protection Agency and the Interior Department to open the door to companies logging federal lands.

"We're going to actually do our own lumber," he said. "We will have access to great amounts of lumber," said Trump.

The president added that logging virgin but aging forests should help them recover. "By doing what we're doing, we're improving our forests."

Looks like Trump got his degree in Forestry at the same place Dave got his PhD in Truth-Detection.

Said Trump before he pinned the Purple Heart, given to those who are wounded or killed in the line of duty, on Barrientos's shirt, "I heard about this and I wanted to do it myself. Congratulations on behalf of Melania, myself, and the entire nation. Tremendous job."
Hey it could've been worse. He could've blamed him for being a shitty soldier who get killed, injured or captured.

Thanks for explaining the reference.
No problem, Bro.  Mostly for Dave's benefit.

The Soap Opera / Re: FX Spamming
idk who bart is, though in my experience with dieting it becomes habitual after about a month, then it's easy.

the key is to make sure it's a fairly healthy diet plan, if you are not careful you could hurt yourself and lose a lot of progress.

and the Trump administration seems unaware of the possibility that the US could lose ground by making changes.
But he can't lose, he's such a great negotiator. He'll wave his dick and Canada will cave.
I'm sure you can bully governments in the same way you bully contractors.  A "deal" is a "deal", right?

Next step is going to be an "Everyone but America" Free Trade Agreement.   Let them eat coal.

Sounds like Assange's head might be the first to roll.  I guess now that the election is over hes outlived his usefulness. https://mobile.twitter.com/wikileaks/status/855368079777431552
yes I'm not pleased at all with trumps position on this.
How do you know he's not playing 14D chess?

Trump may have realized that if he pushes the deep state too far he may wind up like JFK.
lol.  One can hope!
