  1. if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with Trump Derangement Syndrome, talk to your doctor about Clorox Bleach today.

  2. The GOTPers were 'par for their coarse course'…and they've learned nothing from their massive losses in 2018, it seems.
    "Ask not for whom the bell tolls, fellas…" 🔔👎🔔

  3. "most importantly, how are we going to pay for it" – what an idiotic statement, really. I am at a loss for words. I guess do nothing and "pay" with your life, done!

  4. I am very proud of my senator, that being said, the oil industry was very aware of climate change. They had to begin to build well structures in the oceans, higher, but tried to keep this realization quiet. This is just one factor.

  5. Being an Australian I really hope our government does not let us be dragged into another manufactured war – particularly when it's your #45 is leading the pack!

  6. Go Sheldon go. I agree with this 100%. These companies were aware of this 45 years ago. I remember talking about what the repercussions of this would be. We talked about it in class at school.

  7. A manipulated far right conservative judiciary should not stand… Impeach Kavanaugh and add more Justices by a Majority of Americans approval…

  8. The same book that this accusation, the one that has a victim that claims she doesn't even know anything about it, has another accusation the Democrats avoid speaking about. It states that Christine Ford's friend, the one Christine claims was at the party with her the night she was attacked by Kavanaugh, that friend states in the book that it never happened. She says it never happened and she doesn't believe Ford. Additionally she claims that she was threatened by Ford and her legal team if she didn't lie about it. Now that does have a victim that actually agrees with the book yet the alt left media refuse to talk about it.

  9. It's the only way to move forward. As a consumer and a poor consumer I have very little influence on big corporations to change. Change is going to have to come from the corporations.

  10. There aren't enough investigators in the Universe to do what's needed to expose all the GOP criminality that's been committed in the Trump Administration.

  11. We have come to a point these days that the ONLY honest and decent politicians are on the Democratic side. Sure, there used to be reasonable and trustworthy Republicans, but I can't think of any right now.

  12. The Creator, King and Ruler Of Heaven and Earth, He is the One who has set the cycles of the sun and the earth and the time in which they act.
    Do we have the power to influence the sun?
    Can we stop the poles from shifting or movement of the earth’s equator ?
    These are the signs that the time is near for His coming.
    A time to set our lives right with the Lord.
    Can’t you see that the Lord is showing us how frail our life is? That our goals should be knowing Him, having a relationship with Him.
    The Lord God, The Great Creator, is in control and is allowing the climate to change, He is the One who is shutting down His creation. Can we stop it?
    There is a new beginning coming, the return of the Son Of God. Will you be ready???

  13. All 1st-hand witnesses didn't pan out, so lets get some 2nd and 3rd hand witnesses that might be willing to give us the answers we are looking for.

  14. as well as factory farming, with government subsidies, such as in the middle of florida, seeping down the rivers to the sea, causing the algae, resulting in economic loss

  15. I can't believe how many people still are denying facts. Lack of education? Lack of trust in science? Lack of trust in the media?
    I don't mind RI suing the companies, at least as a deterrence – but keep the eye on what we can do to combat the climate crisis right now and have that in mind in Nov. 2020.

  16. If it was possible to get photo images of failure of the lean missile test how come it is not possible to see the alleged lranian attack on the Saudi refineries?

  17. Let he who is without sin, let them throw the first stone. Please people college is all about getting drunk and running around naked.

  18. In other words there is no proof yet. Trump has been desperate for war with Iran. I think he hopes it can save his presidency. If American lives are lost over this, trump is history…
