According to NOAA records, 2018 has gone down as the 6th warmest year since satellite records started in 1979, which was the lowpoint in a cold cycle. The current warming cycle ended in 2016, the hottest year EVER!

Co2 is at a record high. Anyone have a guess as to why the temperature is dropping?

It's not co2.

Isn't contaminated greens caused (note spelling, just because ) by the illegal immigrant farm workers who are defecating in the lettuce fields?

No complete sentences, only fragments

But it is still English . Are you trying to say people don't have to read and write well to do math? Your terse, readable example of a simple algebra problem proves my point.

Students need to be able to share their conclusions. Proper communication should be part of all classes. Teachers that don't reinforce the four skills are doing their students a disfavor.

All that snow should be good for skiing.

On my way back from Tahoe. Skiing yesterday morning was great but whiteout conditions in the afternoon. Weather today not great but as soon as the sun comes out there is going to be some great skiing.

Crowds today.

Can you post something of substance or on topic?

I can. The original post is an extreme example of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Godwin's was invoked numerous times before the discussuon even started.

It's sad how many people who were reasonable at one time get sucked into the hate Trump tribe.

The permanent lie is not circumscribed by reality. It is perpetuated even in the face of overwhelming evidence that discredits it…The iron refusal by those who engage in the permanent lie to acknowledge reality, no matter how transparent reality becomes, creates a collective psychosis.

Great explanation of TDS sufferers and their obsession with "Russian collusion ".

TDS was made up to avoid asserting a valid point of view.

I will have to correct you again.

TDS, Trump Derangement Syndrome, was coined to describe people who think Trump is the second coming of hitler.

This is an ongoing investigation that

has found no evidence of Russia Trump criminal activity. They have not even found evidence of collusion.

the Benghazi investigation

The real reason we have a reality show clown for president; the swamp thought Hillary could beat him.

When politicians sell out their constituency there's no holding them accountable.

When you give the wealthy all free rides at taxpayer expense you don't get rainbows and unicorns, you get temp agencies and pothole streets.

I was gonna like this. And then you added this
jazz_music says

So what do we learn from these giveaways? That Mueller's investigation should be shut down, disband the FBI, there is a crisis at the borders and democrats are to blame.

More TDS.

That mention was not a greenlight to change the subject of this post

Then why did you bring it up?

Hillary was one of the biggest reasons Trump is president.

And as one can see who has eyes: the stage is set for a national border emergency, protests, emergency powers grab, and the fast slide into fascist dictatorship.

Every time we get a new prez the other tribe says it's the first step to dictatorship. The swamp loves it when we fight each other instead of uncovering their corruption.

The only reason to oppose is purely political.

More lies. Did you read any of what I posted ? Trumps "position" is purely political.

Democrats aren’t saying no to physical barriers on the border. They are saying no to Trump.

Sounds like politics to me.

Again, be aware that you guys are advocating a Presidents tantrum to shut the government over congress not giving him what he wants.

That's one difference between you and us "guys" we don't care if the government is shut down. We wish it would stay closed and stop picking our pocket. One of the few jobs of government is to protect the border.

Can you give any reasons for NOT putting up a barrier to stop illegal trespassers? As if there were legal trespassers.

advocating a Presidents tantrum

What tantrum?
Trump has been acting presidential. Much better acting than Bush or Obama and at least as entertaining as Clinton.
Don't forget that it's all political theatre and as long as we fight each other, the swamp wins.

Just ONE simple reason for not putting up barriers to trespassers besides Trump wants it done?

Can you give a reason why Trump shouldn't work with congress to simply continue building and maintaining and investing the walls

Yes, becasue congress refuses to work with Trump. All of the wall's opponents supported it with words before the actuality of a president who would do the deed.

If what the experts say is true, that the wall would be inefficient, and not the best investment we can make right now (in border security) in which case the full 20 or 40 or whatever it is billion dollar wall will never be built, and the $5.7 initial part would be money wasted.

Can you give a reason why Trump shouldn't work with congress to simply continue building and maintaining and investing the walls and all the guards, technology, and other assets they already have, but then also to instead spend money on ports, and amnesty courts etc., that is to have some sort of balanced spending on border security which Trump alone does not get exclusive credit for ?

He could get a deal on border security. But it wouldn't be a $5.7 billion down payment on his wall. And it would be something that was negotiated collaboratively, you know with committees that have put 1000s of hours i...

To summarize: Wall bad BecaSue tRump like.

Reject the truth you deliver by quoting some convenient authority and then condemn you personally for having the wrong belief instead of refuting the inconvenient truth they have rejected.

HeadSet says
What Pelosi is saying is that Trump doesn’t get to shut down the government as a way to fulfill a campaign promise — especially one that carries the baggage of his anti-immigration platform.

This is why the left is distrusted. Trump is not "anti-immigrant," he is anti ILLEGAL immigrant. The way the left ignores the difference between illegal and legal immigration in their rhetoric, plus the sanctuary cities and drivers licences for illegals, indicates the left opposes any method that would hamper illegal immigration. That includes the wall, and would include E-Verify and HxB visa rules should anyone try to actually enforce them.

Quoted so I could like it again.

Well said!

The ability to properly verbally communicate a solution or construct a verbal argument to a math or physics problem is a skill that is not typically developed by age 16/17, no matter how smart the student is.
theoakman says
I show them the process of making your argument using algebra with the variables and then, they look at their steps they ran through with the math to write down their verbal argument.

And that is how you combine English into a physics class. The physics student MUST understand English in order to even distill the problem down to math.
Thanks for proving my point.

It is worth noting that some students who were ESL for me who were brilliant Physics students couldn't score more than a 2/5 on the AP Physics exam because of language barrier issues.

AP is supposed to be college level. Granted that many college level students lack English skills but ESL students MUST learn English to be successful in the English speaking American society.

Problem is that leftists are ideologically against the wall. They rather die than have a wall,

They are not against walls.
They are against Trump's wall.

Most of my ESL students

If they can't communicate they should not be in AP. There are way too many IEP's, 504B's, special ed, and social promotions in school. It may just be my white privileged male opinion but if you can't make the grade you should not be in the class. I've seen how public school works and children are rewarded for being disabled.

If you think patnet is extreme you are in for a rude awakening.
