    Politics House can review Trump's taxes

    I keep hoping that one of the courts will refuse to take the appeal. Hey! It could happen. :D

    Politics Are Water Wars in the Near Future?

    Perhaps, but there has been some fighting in Mexico due to the severe water shortage there. Government workers who deliver water have been attacked for not providing as much water as residents want. Plus, there are a lot of articles that use the term "water wars", which is why I chose that term...

    Politics Are Water Wars in the Near Future?

    Sorry about that. Gifted articles are supposed to be available for two weeks, but for some reason, they don't always work. I missed a few posts. Has anyone mentioned the problems with desalinization, regarding the excessive carbon output and the possible damage to sea life, etc. Does anyone...

    Politics Are Water Wars in the Near Future?

    Almost every article I've read mentions that people who live in areas where water shortages are likely in the near future, need to reduce their own water consumption by at least 25%. Lawns need to be replaced for starters, as AA has already done. We never have had to water our lawn but I...

    Politics Are Water Wars in the Near Future?

    I found an article about what England is trying to do in order to prevent huge water shortages, as this is a global problem. It mentions that desalinization is extremely expensive and it causes a huge carbon output. I'm not at all knowledgable about these things, which is why I've been looking...

    Politics Are Water Wars in the Near Future?

    https://www.usda.gov/media/blog/2020/04/28/uniting-combat-water-shortages-across-country Water reuse sounds like a good idea, but is it being done yet anywhere? Does anyone know much about any plans for reusing water? I think I saw something about this a few years ago on a science tv show, but...

    Politics Are Water Wars in the Near Future?

    I agree that the government will do everything possible to improve the water supply, but is anything being done as of now? Hoe long does it take to build a desalination plant? I knew that waters shortages will be a problem in the future, but until I read about what's going on in about 2/3rds...

    Here's another gifted piece that explains the water shortages in the Western US, assuming anyone is interested...

    https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/article/world-aquifers-water-wars This link may require that you sign up for 3 free articles per month, if you're not a NG subscriber. It does give a lot of information for anyone interested. The most important part imo, is that these severe water...

    Politics Are Water Wars in the Near Future?

    I realized that there are serious shortages of water globally, but until I read the recent article from the NYTimes, I was not aware of the severity of the problem in our neighbor to the South. It also made me aware how much of the Western US may be within a decade or less of suffering from...

    Interesting article on living "paycheck to paycheck"

    I lived paycheck to paycheck during my 20s, but imo, it's easy being poor when you're young. You have your life head of you and you don't need the same kind of comforts that you do in old age. We have enough savings in old age to live a middle class lifestyle. But, I've known many older adults...

    What precedent will prosecuting a former president set?

    I understand, but as a person who cared for the mentally ill during part of my career, I have to have a little sympathy. It's impossible for me to have empathy for that psychopath, but I try to remind myself that moral development or lack of it comes from the brain. along with other...

    Midterms 2022

    I'll find the link later, but according to various sources, the Dems are gaining ground and are now a few points ahead of the Repugs. OF course, that's just overall, so it doesn't say much about individual races. Warnock is leading Walker by about 3% and sadly Abrams is trailing Kemp by about...

    What precedent will prosecuting a former president set?

    I think he should be tried, but because I believe that Trump is seriously mentally ill and since I don't believe in absolute free will, I'd be happy to see him put in a nursing home with a good memory unit. They could give him a little desk with a plaque that reads "President" and a television...
