Baby Boomer death rates remained depressed or even stagnated, while they sat back, played bingo, and watched the younger generation implode on itself.
NPR and NYT are almost panicking backpedaling away from it. For the first time in over 20 years those organizations are talking about journalism integrity. They are both saying Wolfe has crossed the line in every way. But they admit they love reveling in the gossip, but they don't think it's true. They want to believe most of the quotes are true, but not the recounts of the crazy shit Trump is reported to have said or done.
Wait, so if we see a CO2 graph with the same slope, it's going "parabolic"
I'm not disputing it's a huge problem. Just trying to have some perspective.
Seriously, you're carrying the weight of worry about morbidly obese junkfood eating americans on your shoulders?
1 degree C rise in 137 years will "wet bulb" us to death...
about Obama and Hillary we don't have to make shit up.
As the campaign came to an end, Trump himself was sanguine. His ultimate goal, after all, had never been to win. “I can be the most famous man in the world,” he had told his aide Sam Nunberg at the outset of the race. His longtime friend Roger Ailes, the former head of Fox News, liked to say that if you want a career in television, first run for president. Now Trump, encouraged by Ailes, was floating rumors about a Trump network. It was a great future. He would come out of this campaign, Trump assured Ailes, with a far more powerful brand and untold opportunities.“This is bigger than I ever dreamed of,” he told Ailes a week before the election. “I don’t think about losing, because it isn’t losing. We’ve totally won.”
Most presidential candidates spend their entire careers, if not their lives from adolescence, preparing for the role. They rise up the ladder of elected offices, perfect a public face, and prepare themselves to win and to govern. The Trump calculation, quite a conscious one, was different. The candidate and his top lieutenants believed they could get all the benefits of almost becoming president without having to change their behavior or their worldview one whit. Almost everybody on the Trump team, in fact, came with the kind of messy conflicts bound to bite a president once he was in office. Michael Flynn, the retired general who served as Trump’s opening act at campaign rallies, had been told by his friends that it had not been a good idea to take $45,000 from the Russians for a speech. “Well, it would only be a problem if we won,” Flynn assured them.Not only did Trump disregard the potential conflicts of his own business deals and real-estate holdings, he audaciously refused to release his tax returns. Why should he? Once he lost, Trump would be both insanely famous and a martyr to Crooked Hillary. His daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared would be international celebrities. Steve Bannon would become the de facto head of the tea-party movement. Kellyanne Conway would be a cable-news star. Melania Trump, who had been assured by her husband that he wouldn’t become president, could return to inconspicuously lunching. Losing would work out for everybody. Losing was winning.Shortly after 8 p.m. on Election Night, when the unexpected trend — Trump might actually win — seemed confirmed, Don Jr. told a friend that his father, or DJT, as he calls him, looked as if he had seen a ghost. Melania was in tears — and not of joy.
It was really good and showed that Bannon was only nationalist in Trump's admin. Basically the only MAGA guy. Everyone that's left is swamp.
Liberal integrity..."Who cares if the book is a salacious lie, it's too good to factcheck"
That this Wolff guy was in a Trump White house during a time when his staff was leaking like a sieve
Act like an adult or GTFO. @patrick how long are you gonna let this guy drag down your forum? This specific behavior is the problem. Iwog is your worst offender
LBJ was a known racist who devastated the black community with dependency on entitlements.
If such a failure can have a net worth of $3.5 Billion, I'l like to be exactly that kind of failure.

This is why Leftism is going to eventually die out: Ideology vs Truth.
saw Don Lemon (CNN's favorite black parrot) attack Martin Luther King Jr's nephew of being a fame seeker, using MLK's name to get attention simply because he didn't think Trump was racist (an opinion shared by MLK's niece, Alveda King, as well). Can you believe that? Trying to tear down the MLK's family members simply because they don't agree with CNN's fantasy narrative that Trump hates people of color.
e never calls white people racist and Trump manipulating racists. That's ridiculous.
