in that order we simply must develop power devices which use some energy present in the universe, such as cosmic rays.
 Electric power made from cosmic or solar rays would be an energy source directly available to each individual, and it would make every individual more independent. This is not a question of politics, but a question of scientific and technological advance. Does anyone believe people will stick to today's energy sources, like coal, oil, gas, or nuclear power, forever? Science will and shall advance, that is a law of human history.
Tesla lost because the world wanted viable energy now, and what Tesla proposed was still in it's infancy.
Would you not assume had his dream been a reality, that we wouldn't be using it today on some scale?

Race is a lot like religion. Have more than one in an area and there will always be some tension.

Silicon Valley, where I live, contradicts you. There are Christians of various varieties, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, spiritualists, Sikhs, and probably a couple more religions that I can recall with facilities in the area. Yet no riots, no burnings. What's up with that?

Similarly, European, Hispanic, black, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian, Arab, Pakistani, and many more ... and no riots or racial violence. Was I describing by church? My workplace? My neighborhood? Silicon Valley? ..... And the answer is, E.) All of the above!

Generalizations like that generally don't work.

I see the forum owner has flat out TOLD the poster above to cut his crap and start breaking up long unreadable garbage into shorter unreadable garbage. I'm betting it won't take. Trolls never, ever learn.

There is another extreme.

It's possible to overuse the ENTER key.

Even if you're not intending to.

Sometimes mere sentence fragments and dependent phrases get promoted to paragraphs.

You may know some posters hereabouts who have this incredibly annoying habit.

It reminds me of my second year of college.

When I worked as a sportswriter for a local newspaper.

One thing I was taught early on in that job.

A newspaper paragraph always has the same number of sentences.


One.

Sports READERS can't read longer than that.  :lol:  General news reporters use more sentences, just shorter. Like this one.

Jews are NOT dumb. They won't accept paying taxes to support our criminal federal debt-load.

Send more nukes. They'll figure out how to use them for the best effect.

Bingo! Unless Congress ratifies the treaty, it is not a binding treaty under the Constitution.
It's like him giving away one of the 57 states :rolleyes:, he simply hasn't the authority, he is not, despite his delusion, King.

He already gave away D.C., so which actual state would that be? The People's Republic of Californicate?

You gonna look suh-WEET in that burkha!

So what's new about this item? It's not like he hasn't done this before, but maybe this time the supremes might have something to say about the constitutionality of his 'treaty.'

How often can a conservative honestly agree with a liberal loudmouth?

Take Ohio’s Sherrod Brown....

Quote
Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, released a statement Monday calling on consumers to boycott the home of the Whopper after Burger King announced late Sunday that it was in talks to buy Tim Hortons, creating the world's third-largest fast-food company in the process.

Burger King confirmed the deal on Tuesday; as part of the plan, Burger King would relocate its headquarters to Canada, a move that could lower its corporate taxes.

"Burger King’s decision to abandon the United States means consumers should turn to Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers or White Castle sliders," Brown said. "Burger King has always said 'Have it Your Way'; well my way is to support two Ohio companies that haven’t abandoned their country or customers." Wendy's is based in Dublin, Ohio, while White Castle is headquartered in Columbus.
