How depressing. In order to win the battle we need to raise a whole new generation of people to appreciate science? Or do we need to stoop down to their level and just through baseless (but interesting) "alternative facts" around.

Are we really experiencing the new normal? A world of ever reduced wages that slows economic development? Feel like a horrible death spiral, especially in this era of easy political manipulation.

Ok, it might be one #seriouslylongread but this is an amazing story about life in one sudo-military unit trying to restore life in Mosul.

In some ways I really hate posting things like this. I've read so many and it's so dark, and I'm not even living in the US right now.

But I can't help but see the threads being woven for the straight jacket sized just for America.

Anyone concerned about Trumps Travel Ban should spend the time reading this #longread. I've read so many articles recently defending either the value of immigrants, or speaking to the incredibly small percentage of a chance that an immigrant will do you harm.

The truth is, we need to spend the time telling their stories, not the numbers. American needs to FEEL the pain, not understand it!

This is a perfect example of why I support higher taxes and more government. Only the state could commit to and stick with a program like this.
