Nobody is absolved from anything. All of us are racist or prejudiced to some degree or another  and there is no excuse for it.

Kelly is a major fascist. His response to the accusation that his immigration roundups are completely non-humanitarian has been "well, they broke the law, and this is the law. If you don't like the law, then change it."

So, who.are McMaster and Kelly as people? I'm a little bit worried that generls are running the white house now.
Kelly was leading the CBP and ice charge before becoming chief of staff. He's a garbage person.
Well sure. But I guess that there have been lots of garbage types in politics over the years. The bar may have been raised too high by the current shit show but I guess I wondered how authoritarian they are from a Nazi perspective.

The two still being built in Georgia  are also no doubt going under as well, since Toshiba went bankrupt.

The irony is cheap fossil fuel (natural gas) is the cause.

That and the fact nuclear power has never been a viable economic source of energy,

While Japan lost another 9 billion dollars on it's failed fast-breeder reactor, they also are going to need 3.2 billion to get rid of it.

How many solar panels would 20 billion dollars have produced?  Two million houses (or businesses) could have been equipped with solar panels (10,000 dollar system), which sounds a lot better to me.

Count the cost of Fukushima, Three Mile island and Chernobyl, add another 5 million homes that could be using solar right now.  At least.

I think a lot of people will vote for Trump again, just to keep the show going. It's a fun twist-a-minute presidency. Like a TV drama, but watching it is fulfilling a civic duty?

And? Does any of that absolve violent white nationalists of their behaviour, or absolve Trump of his idiotic equivocation of "many sides" and "fine people"?

Fine people who, it needs to be noted, we're marching with a group of people carrying swastikas and chanting white supremacist slogans

From the lout Dave Godfrey
"Where did flight feathers come from before Pennaraptora"?

Good question. Can anyone answer it?

The fact that long remiges have now been documented in oviraptorosaurs, dromaeosaurids and other maniraptorans shows that feathered arms essentially the same as those present in basal birds evolved somewhere round about the base of the oviraptorosaur + paravian clade, and there is no evidence that wing-like arms were present in more basal coelurosaurs, nor in other theropods, or other dinosaurs, or other archosaurs.

In fact this is a big problem for the dino to bird theory that nobody has ever answered. Nobody here and nobody in the published material.

In fact, the feathered arms essentially the same as those present in basal birds that evolved somewhere round about the base of the oviraptorosaur + paravian clade, appeared out of the blue. Almost nobody acknowledges that. That is why Naish is so refreshing and honest!
No doubt people here will start up their "yes but" excuses. That really means nothing.

I'm still a little surprised to occasionally read redstate.com and nod my head in agreement.
Wow.
