Troublesome King Tides

Submitted by ub on Fri, 09/27/2019 - 10:57

King tides are the highest tides of the year, which typically occur during the months of October and November.

"King tide" is not a scientific term, nor is it used in a scientific context. Use of the term "king tide" originated in Pacific nations to refer to an especially high tide that occurs only a few times per year. The term has now come to be used in North America as well, particularly in low-lying areas, where they cause sunny day tidal flooding.

American women face shortages of partners in the USA marriage market, according to recently released research findings.

Apparently, many single available ladies are having difficulties finding partners who are earning as much money as they make.

Whether they realize it or not, trust and financial security are major traits single women most often seek in their partners. In fact, scientific research indicates that most people move from romantic flings into bona fide relationships when they feel they can trust the potential partner emotionally and financially.

Warning Signs

A president has the title, but a real leader has the people. Whenever a so-called leader starts acting like a dictator, shutting down.whistleblowers, embarrassing elected officials, firing anyone who dares to challenge him, we have a toxic national problem.

And that’s not just because of his bad behavior, but because it creates an environment in which everyone can become afraid, intimidated and often willing to throw others under the bus, just to stay on top. Who writes the playbook: Scorched earth and will it work?

POTUS interactions with Ukraine president Zelensky increased in recent weeks following the news that a whistleblower complained about a Trump explosive phone call.

Trump Toast?

Is Trump toast and does everybody know it? We'll have to see how this all ends but the questions which beg to be asked if the allegations are true, who is stupid enough to pull off some of these stunts? A stable genius, or a three-year-old?

Trump appears to confirm that he withheld military aid from Ukraine before his infamous phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky. The Ukraine news broke through the way Mueller’e investigation didn’t, which had too many layers. This one everyone understands that it stinks.

The USA has created the world’s largest immigration detention system, and through a series of stopgap measures, shortsighted policies and intense lobbying by private companies have spawned and nurtured a multibillion-dollar industry based on the imprisonment of men, women, and children seeking to live in America.

POTUS Panic Mode

Submitted by ub on Mon, 09/23/2019 - 09:05

Has he begun to fall on this first day of Fall? We'll see what happens but things were bound to start falling apart sooner or later. Is this really Autumn? Does it appear to be more like Fall, without the style or saving grace from all?

Do Republicans remember when Trump said he would release his income taxes? How about when he promised Mexico would pay for the wall? How about when Trump told members of his base to rough up protesters and he would pay the legal fees? Most American have heard so many lies that it’s hard to believe anything any more.
