Check out Theodore the buffoon @12 trying to castigate anyone opposing this administration extreme right agenda (slashing Medicaid and the EPA while increasing an already bloated war budget) as being 'far left'.

@25 Nope. MikeyC implied that one shouldn't point out said behavior among some Jews (his granny used to say "never point your finger at others") because some Palestinians were guilty of the same.

@17 Not logical at all. Whether or not some Palestinians are guilty of the same unfortunate behavior has no impact at all on whether said behavior should be condemned.

the prestigious Travel Weekly magazine (as close to an “official” travel publication as they come) has set the decline in foreign tourism at 6.8%. And the fall-off is not limited to Muslim travelers, but also extends to all incoming foreign tourists. Apparently, an attack on one group of tourists is regarded as an assault on all.

[...] On the web, flight searches for trips heading to the U.S. out of all international locations was recently down by 17%.

A drop of that magnitude, if continued, would reduce the value of foreign travel within the U.S. by billions of dollars. And the number of jobs supported by foreign tourists and their expenditures in the United States—and thus lost—would easily exceed hundreds of thousands of workers in hotels, restaurants, transportation, stores, tour operations, travel agencies, and the like.

@3 pfttt. When it's as green as shown in the pic, it will be very bitter. It's supposed to be blanched (grown in the dark for the last 2 weeks) so it becomes yellow before consumption.

@80 The devil is in the details because overall turnout numbers aren't very meaningful when the electoral college unfortunately decides who won. National turnouts in 2012 and 2016 were similar except in key blue-collar counties especially in Wisconsin and Ohio where voter numbers were significantly down in 2016 compared to 2012, 2008 and 2004. Overall, Clinton scored 15% less than 2012 Obama in suburban/rural blue collar counties whereas she increased her numbers among educated urban voters.

@68 Nobody but you claimed one would have to wait before winning elections again. Personally, I believe that making constitutional reforms part of a progressive party platform would actually fasten winning elections under electoral college rules, in the remote possibility that I wasn't already plenty clear before now.
