I am respecting +Rugger Ducky's wishes to limit the comments to people who live outside the US, but R.D. didn't mention one of the most important duties of a President - to work with Congress. While it is difficult for Congress and the President to work together, even when they are of the same party, this is one of the President's most important duties.

If you don't live in the US, go to the original post and comment away.
 
Ok, I want to ask a serious question. Please only comment if you live OUTSIDE the United States.

What do you think about the possibility of Donald Trump taking over as the President of the United States?

As Executive of the nation, this role encompasses overseeing the disbursement of the national budget. Is the Commander in Chief of the US Military. Is the only person who can make the final decision to launch nuclear weapons. Appoints a Cabinet of people to run every government department and agency.

I promise not to delete or block anyone for invective, so long as you aren't directing it at me or anyone else commenting. If you're from the US and you really, really can't help but talk about it, reshare and plus mention me.

As I have researched this a bit, it appears that in the event the USA were attacked he does not, but to just go and launch an attack against another country w/o need I don't believe he could get away with.  But then again, he gets away with everything else he's pulled so far. (off topic, my bad)

Firesign Theatre performed a similar misattribution years ago when they referenced Lenin and Marx...except that the pictured "Lenin" spelled his name differently and had much longer hair, the the pictured "Marx" wore glasses and smoked a cigar.

Yes, the Lenin/Lennon conjunction also turns up in (for instance) Life on Mars and American Pie. Both songs from 1970 or so and at a time when Lennon was a very powerful cultural icon.

I don't have a problem with the size of any particular church, large or small. I am concerned about the theology of a church, large or small. It's just that a bunch of the large Christian churches either go the prosperity gospel route or the Moses model route, neither of which is sound.

The farther away something is from us, the more likely we are to resort to generalizations. Martians get it worse than either Christians or Muslims.

Okay, this made me laugh. We've all had our share of typos, but on a billboard? In an ad with only 4 words?

Can you spot the mistakes? We've collected 16 of the worst typos, grammatical errors, and spelling mistakes we've ever seen.

They may express a popular sentiment, but the words on this sign came from a Photoshopper and not a Ferguson protester.

Happy Birthday, The Hashtag!

+Chris Messina​​, inventor of the Hashtag, reminds us all that today the Hashtag turns 8-years old. It sure is a precious little thing, having changed the world already. Will it still be around in 8 more years? Who knows! But it's still cool for now.

Often we apply Western human concepts to other regions, and even to other species, where they clearly don't belong.

Consider this description of an aquatic creature:

Last year, 'Disco clams' were caught on camera 'partying' on the ocean floor while producing their own strobe light effects.A scientist found that Ctenoides ales, dubbed disco clams because of this unique feature, produce the effect using its lips - which are packed with tiny spheres of reflective silica - like a mirror ball.Lindsey Dougherty encountered the two-inch clam in 2010 while diving with her mother and sister in Wakatobi, Indonesia.She saw Ctenoides ales roll the edge of its mantle - a layer of muscle and tissue that acts like a cloak over the mollusc's body - and produce a strobe-light effect using its mirrored lips.
