I'm beginning to think that Trump is so irrelevant that we can have the Greens and the Democrats run under a common agreement to vote in the Electoral College for the candidate with the largest plurality.

It's the only way to get about half of Bernie supporters to not throw away their vote.

The Republicans at large should be irrelevant by now, if American voters had any sense. If we must have a 2-party system, the Democrats should be our conservative party and some other progressive party such as the Greens should be our liberal party. Even more ideal would be a more pluralistic democracy with multiple parties (vs. a 2-party Republic), but that would take sweeping reforms that I don't think the population is ready to accept yet.

Bernie in the Media  - 
 
The only logical outcome of #BernieOrBust is a promise to vote for and fund Jill Stein of the green party. If the Democrats are going to foist Hillary on us, we take our votes to the only competent candidate left on the right side of the issues. Voting for Trump or not voting is real stupid. But I cannot stomach voting for Hillary.

I just decided that House of Cards is no longer interesting. One of the characters went so far I don't care about them any more.

I've long loathed how much Hillary sucks up to the radical Israeli lobby.
 
Good read from Phillip Weiss!
‘NYT’ puts Dems’ battle over Israel platform on the front page. The exposure signifies that the Democratic Party is lost to Israel forever, as the progressive grassroots assert th…

Maybe Bernie wins anyway. This is a reputable technology reporting site.
System also came under hacking attacks (just like everything else on the internet)

She did, I agree. So did Trump, and his shills have come out and admitted to being fake Sanders supporters. In fact his son-in-law runs The Observer, a spin site often cited as a legitimate source by Bernie progressives. They are playing right into Trump's hands.

So let's do something to counteract warming. We can't wait until the greenhouse pollution dissipates on its own two hundred years from now. There are numerous geoengineering things we can do to cool the planet. It totally irks me that it is politically incorrect to talk about it.
 
Brace yourself. Global warming brings with it not only weather and resource challenges, but more disease, allergies, and asthma, among other grave concerns. | Big Think

'There are lots of disastrous ways climate change is affecting our planet. It is speeding up the extinction rate of many species and increasing land degradation. This could mean less fish in the sea for food and less arable land for crops, as well as many more conflicts in the world to control dwindling resources. Higher temperatures make extreme weather events more likely and far more severe. Floods, hurricanes, droughts, heat waves, and other natural disasters already come with high death tolls as it is.
...'

Through human caused climate change, we are barreling toward a world with less stability, less resources, more disease, and more lives lost to extreme weather events.

This community is for discussing the pressing need to actively counteract global warming, including geoengineering.

It is a topic most environmentalists don't even want to discuss. It is hugely politically incorrect.

But I highly disagree. So far, the scientists have, if anything, drastically underestimated the effects of all the greenhouse gasses we have dumped into the atmosphere. If we don't start making massive efforts to do geoengineering and perhaps active efforts to relocate plants and animals from their current location to places where they can survive, we are facing a huge environmental and political catstrophe.

Why again is the big elephant in the room still being ignored in this report? Are we going to let this climate change catastrophe happen, or are we going to do something to counteract it?
Radical action is needed to combat increasing rate of environmental damage to water sources, land, biodiversity and marine life, report shows

I've always thought the way Hillary partisans insist that she's won the nomination by millions of votes to be especially specious. She's won because the primaries are designed to keep challengers out.

Bernie is actually hugely more popular than her in the general election.

This is amazingly good Italian style thin crust pizza. They use natural gas in the oven instead of expensive hardwood, so the pizza is a bit less expensive, but equally tasty. All of the toppings and cheese are locally sourced. The salads are delicious with subtle sophisticated dressings. But then there are the beer and wines from all over the world. They sell good wine by the glass and at least 40 different very delicious beers and ciders. It's very high end flavors at a more moderate price. Expect to spend at least $30 per person but each time you can drink something interesting and very different along with the very excellent pizza and salad.

Yes it is somewhat more pricey than some other places nearby, the portions are not huge. Since I tend to eat everything on my plate, I don't mind if they don't serve me so much stuff. The food and coffee is just fine. I really like the Porkstrami Hash, which has a small amount of fatty spiced ham, green vegetables and really fresh tasty fried potatoes.

The rabbit salad was better than OK, but the slices were greasy with low quality toppings, tough not especially tasty crust, and bland sauces

Other than a great place to get a beer, the food is really corporate cheap and awful. The heavily bleached flour used on crusts tastes like paste, there's was too much rather low quality sausage in my calzone, not enough veggies, ricotta, or sauce. Salad was iceberg and fake croutons and cheap bottled dressing.

The coffee could be just a bit less over roasted, but the food was quickly served and tasty. I had the smoked salmon omelette. I may come back if I'm in the area, but it isn't the kind of place that I will go out of the way to visit.

I really don't understand any of the negative reviews. This is a really kewl laid back bar with a wide range of beers on tap, good drinks, and a game room downstairs. The food is great, including the burgers. The guy with the dry burger should have just asked for something, they have plenty of good things to add to a burger, most of them free. I'm sure they can supply you with some good sauce or aoili on the side. They have some of the best collard greens I've ever had. There is a daily barbecue special that is very inexpensive and effing delicious, dipped in their tangy not sweet barbecue sauce.

It's not very good, just over breaded salty fried chicken, fried in somewhat stale over heated oil. It had acceptable spices. The only tasty thing was the beans and it was a tiny cup. It was tasty enough to finish what i ordered but there are better and much more nutritious places to go, i won't try it again..
