Lori Barrett I guess you've never been to Texas, but the outdoors is still un-air conditioned. Dallas, Ft. Worth, San Antonio, Austin and Houston are all paved as well. And 60, 70, 80% humidity is nothing out of the ordinary. The point is, while this heat wave is a preview to a diatribe about "global warming", the past 4 or 5 summers in Texas have been getting more and more mild. The actual problem is that everyone stays in air conditioning far too much and cannot endure the heat (normal summer heat) like humans elsewhere can.
52 minutes ago
Chris Cobham people in Texas live in their air conditioned homes and run to their air conditioned cars. In NY we walk and take the subway everywhere. Many people don’t have air conditioning in their homes. You can’t compare the two. Not to mention NYC is completely made of concrete which hold heat and continues to release it. This is why when it’s in the 90’s or 100 degrees in NYC it’s actually more like 120 or more. And then there’s the excessive humidity on top of it.

The purpose to this article appears primarily to draw attention back to a previous article written by this author on the lack of training and equipment of US troops deployed to support Special Forces assets. It does touch on the bigger picture, however, of how the overt attempt to minimize conventional troop strength in Afghanistan have resulted in decreased assets, to include training and supplies, being applied towards the Afghanistan mission. The current US approach may be bringing less attention to that conflict in the US, but it also highlights that despite our efforts to get the current Afghanistan government to train, equip, and field a viable fighting force, it has not succeeded. This may in large part be due to corruption and lack of leadership at higher levels of Afghan government and military, but US trained Afghan troops, while wel trained, are too often left without the resources and support they need from their own military hierarchy to fight effectively, and their government has become too reliant on US forces to bail them out. 18+ years is a very long time to admit to the failure our foreign policy mistakes have lead to. Leaving smaller contingents of US troops in Afghanistan isn't the answer; the time has come for a total withdrawal. At least there is one positive in that the current US policy has contributed to the Afghan government finally agreeing to meet with their opponents in diplomatic discussions. One can't help to wonder, however, whether it really is worth the loss of any more US lives trying to save an Afghan government that can't save itself.  1

"Fellow Americans! Here ye! Here ye! I am pleased to inform you of my newest political measure to help us in the international fight against crime and corruption itself! I've devised a new system that could change how we prosecute our citizens and possibly temporary, illegal, and visitor population. By enacting what I like to call, "Reflective persecution". What this entails is the full prosecution of crimes an individual is accused of in the nations they have come from and are known of in our international community. We would take what information we can gather about an individual and would proceed to persecute them to the fullest extent of the law. Based on what we have gathered of them. The recommended persecution of the said individual from the country they were considered for charges would be taken lightly as seen with the meng wanzhou case. We cannot rely on a country of origin to make full recommendations when they could be too passive on the prosecution of the said individual in question. Therefore we would take it upon ourselves to make our own assumptions and persecute based on what we know. This would effectively eliminate the need for interpol intervention and would thereby void any involvement or authority of their organization entirely. Thank you, that is all."

The faces of pure evil !! Even those against capital punishment must have a line that once crossed, justifies the death sentence.

If you would like to discuss the cultural fluctuations that where set into motion in WWII that is now gaining momentum which in turn is causing political tensions in our changing and evolving nation then we can talk about something interesting But I don’t think that’s what you were getting at.
