    This winter people will probably eventually realize that Trump's only plan is to do to the USA what he did to the Trump Taj Mahal, and Trump Entertainment Resorts in Atlantic City, after scooping off enough cash to keep himself a billionaire. (They and 2 other Trump businesses went bankrupt).

    In the end, after that big "What do we do now?" moment, they'll probably end up nominating Carly for president, with Chris Christie as her VP.

    So nobody gets married there. Will that change anything? Who know if voters there care if they pay their local employees for doing nothing. In the end it's the voters who get to fire elected officials, anyway.

    So then why did the 3k wizard, Mr. Duke recently endorse D. Trump, if he is a democrat?

    The only M. Sanger that i knew was someone who went to my high school a few years ago. I have no idea where she went or what she has done since. Probably married with a few kids now. What does she have to do with a 3k wizard endorsing a republican candidate?

    Yep, facts do escape some... Look it up, springer. They come in with the proper visas and passport, all document perfect for a short visit. Unfortunately some just forget when they need to return, and stick around for a few extra years - or decades. One got so scared that she finally returned to the UK after spending about 3 years here. The other headed west and disappeared, at least from my view. I'm not sure where he is now. At least half of the illegals here arrive that way. It's much easier than risking death by dehydration in a southern desert.

    Perhaps we shouldn't encourage these guys. Don't even talk about them until at lest January. After they've had some time to beat each other about the head and ears, maybe most of the crazies will be gone.

    The FBI reports crimes, like murder and homicide. They don't seem to have any interest in anything else, including gun deaths that are "accidents" or suicides. The FBI also appears only interested in US rates, and not the rates anywhere else in the world.

    That's not going to happen (I said "most").

    But, maybe you are right. Perhaps Obama should be spending more time with his advisers looking for things he could do without getting Congress involved, as Congress has clearly shown that they don't have any desire to do anything that might help America or Americans.

    Yes, real data is good. Let's take the fracne that you mentioned and look at he ral data:

    USA gun deaths per 100,000 - 11
    France gun deaths per 100,000 - 3

    France seems to be doing a much, much better job that we are doing keeping guns out of the hands of children, the mentally ill, and criminals. (Their homicide rate is also 1/5 what it is here.)

    And just based on the facts that exist today - real data, as you say. Maybe we could learn something from them, that is if we really want to deal with the people here who can't use guns properly.

    So you haven't a clue! Why should we have though otherwise? It's simply the people that are the problem. Only a nitwit wouldn't understand that. Keep the guns out of the hands of those who can't use them properly and the problem is solved.

    You are right, springer. It's the people, not the guns. So, what is your plan to keep guns out of the hands of those children, the mentally ill and criminals who don't know how to use them properly? Children, the mentally ill and criminals are never going to be able to use a gun properly. How do you propose that keep guns out of those people's hands?

    Anyone talk about HP/HPE/HPinc?

    There still doesn't appear to have been much information released about the split. One report thta I rad said that information about HPInc won't be available until after the split!

    I did read that both companies are planed to be about of equal size and value, so for each share of HPQ, one should get st least equally valued shares in both of the new companies. But how many shares of each company will be issues and how many actual shares one would get for each share of HPQ appears yet to be decided.

    Why not go golfing?? Obama has gotten most of what he wanted to do done already, and Congress is off on a month+ vacation now, anyway.

    That name change is a bit of a stretch. It's been Denali for decades. Friends of mine were going to Alaska to climb Denali 25 years ago.

    "her National Security Clearance"??

    Why does she, a private citizen, have a national security clearance? Her current job (grandmother), doesn't require it, does it? And if she doesn't have one, how can it be taken away?

    New Orleans Legacy

    And not just New Orleans. Louisiana has already lost 2,000 square miles of land to rising seas. In addition to the miles of dams, they have also built pumps that can empty an olympic size swimming pool in 2 seconds.

    New Orleans is just the start. We will need to make that same decision - abandon the city, or build trillions of dollars worth of levees for hundreds of American cities. Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Houston, Brownsville, Corpus Christi, Galveston, Port Arthur, Sacramento, Huntington Beach, Stockton, Slidell, Lake Charles, Charleston, Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach, Wilmington, Newport News, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Washington, DC, Atlantic City, Camden, Jersey City, Bayonne, NYC, Lindenhurst, Biloxi, Gulfport, Savannah, Gulf Shores, Beaufort, Boston, Salem, Revere, Portsmouth, Hampton, Kittery, Old Orchard Beach, Tillamook, Pacific City, and hundreds more cities and town.

    Now a little more than 25% of the Netherlands is below sea level, and protected with levees. We could do the same to protect these cities, and hundreds more, along thousands of miles of coast. But, if we do that, it will cost us many trillions of dollars, given that we have already spend $14 billion just for New Orleans, and the new New Orleans levees and dams are not considered to be enough for the worst possible storm that might hit the area. (They are expected to be able to handle a 100 year Katrina style storm, but not a stronger 500 year storm.)

    Well, that's correct. Neither your gay neighbor's rights, nor your rights supersede the other's rights. You both have rights that exist independent of the other's rights. You don't need to bother her, and she won't bother you, as you both live your lives as you wish.
