I don't even get blame-shifting over Trump acting in accordance with his general campaign rhetoric. This is what people--not Heinz--voted for.
Yes. Yes it is. But the reality comes under the light eventually.

But Trump is just enforcing a Democrat policy!  :heinz

No. He is just enforcing the law. Where were you when Obama was doing the same thing?
Well, Obama wasn't so...

Bottom line, in a lineup, they all look like nazis. They all have a nazi standing next to them. They all enable nazis.

So let me repeat my question Dave, as you seem to have misunderstood it:

So what data do you think are consistent with the first and NOT with the second?

And no, the mythical North American continent-sized "pancake-thin" "Tapeats sandstone" is NOT an answer.  It's a LIE.
No it's not.  It's right there.  In ground.
No. Actually,  (for the lurkers) it isn't there in the ground.  There is Tapeats sandstone but no pancake thin continent sized layer. Dave is batting 1000 on stupid though.

Remember all those times Hawkins has told us it's just the *Life* Sciences he has contempt for?
Well, life and physical sciences to be more precise but who's actually counting.  Its truthy hyperbole.

"The Milankovitch cycles
There are three cycles, termed the Milankovitch cycles, that result in slight changes in the earth's orbital geometry around the sun.4 The first is the earth's eccentricity, in which the elliptical orbit of the earth cycles every 100 kyr between an eccentricity of near zero to almost 0.06. The eccentricity also has a longer-period 413-kyr cycle that some scientists believe to be important. It is controversial as to whether this cycle shows up in climate variables. The second is the tilt of the earth, which oscillates between 22.1° and 24.5° with a period of 41 kyr. The third Milankovitch cycle is the precession of the equinoxes, in which the equinoxes rotate around the orbital ellipse of the earth with a period of around 22 kyr. The net effect of all three cycles results in a slightly different distribution of solar radiation between the seasons and latitudes with time (figure 1). However, the net solar radiation remains the same over the earth."

Why do you constantly post information that relies on time scales that you don't want to believe exist but post as support for your arguments?

Wright ....

"Heretofore, humans have been viewed as passive agents in the termination of the AHP, responding to changing climatic conditions by adopting animal husbandry and spreading an agricultural lifestyle across the African continent. This paper explores scenarios whereby humans could be viewed as active agents in landscape denudation."
Why do you take a hypothesis as proof of your truth so often?

My guess

:facepalm:

The reason "more of North Africa is not included", dave, is because there was something called THE SAHARA DESERT there. Yes, in 1 AD.
Moses didn't lead his people through the lush mountains of Sinai.

IIRC, "head rolling" means "going to jail".

So there's Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort.
Yeah.

BEFORE his trial.

What is this? The Soviet Union?
yes and no

quick rundown of what happend in court

maniforts lawyers asked for a do not contact list and that he return to house arrest

judge assumed that the list would be huge and he would contact potential others not on the list yet

prosecutors gave examples of how he was contacting poeple he knew would be witnesses

judge decided he would wait in prison for his trial to prevent any method to contact other potential witnesses

manifort was escorted out, bailiff returned to his wife with maniforts wallet, tie and belt
Why should he not be allowed to contact other Witnesses?
Again I ask ...
Again I  :facepalm:
And I

In any case the Llano estacado used to be teeming with bison herds and other life and now it is mostly dead like Westley in The Princess Bride, kept alive only by Center pivot irrigation but that too will soon fail  according to this article ...

Cows can't replace irrigation. Stop the irrigation and let Nature do her thing.
Nope.  As weird as it sounds, properly managed cows are the only thing that will save areas like that.
The ONLY thing

Like I said I read the article. But have you guys looked at a Google map of Niger? Have you read anything about the agriculture situation in Niger? Other than this article I linked? It's a pretty dire situation and people cannot feed themselves year around.  The things that they're doing that this article talks about are great but it's so small and the problem is so enormous.

I personally am hanging my hopes for the world on somebody very powerful and influential like Donald Trump or the Chinese president getting their eyes opened about Holistic Management.

You are on to something there dave. Irrigation using fossil water is the OG unsustainable agricultural.

Finally, in 1867, Cody took up the trade that gave him his nickname, hunting buffalo to feed the construction crews of the Kansas Pacific Railroad. By his own count, he killed 4,280 head of buffalo in seventeen months. He is supposed to have won the name "Buffalo Bill" in an eight-hour shooting match with a hunter named William Comstock, presumably to determine which of the two Buffalo Bill's deserved the title.

It's captivating watching this and trying to figure out if the justice system moves faster than Trump is corrupting it.
That is a disturbing question

Unhappy is the land that needs a hero, Andreus.

Pisses me off that he wasn't handcuffed.

How does this guy still keep his job? Has "LOL nothing matters" mentality infected 100% of the population over there?
People don't like it, but... did you see that dude reading the Howard zinn speech I posted in the alt right thread? Yeah. That.

It still has not dawned on you how dumb these

" The End "

Messiahs are not ever wrong though.

Actually that article is excellent,  dave. You should read it.
