    We got a real winner here folks and it's getting worse.
    TransCanada's spill analysis for Keystone XL, which would cross Montana, South Dakota, and Nebraska, estimates 2.2 leaks per decade with half of those at volumes of 3 barrels or less. It estimated that spills exceeding 1,000 barrels would occur at a rate of once per century

    The "improved" version under 45 will increase the load and decrease the inspections. Nothing bad is going to happen with that idea.

    Meanwhile, in other imperiled areas of the environment, Trump's proposed budget for 2019 again slashes funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, and the cleanup of other significant waterways like Chesapeake Bay. These programs were instituted under Obama's administration....what a surprise Besides the cuts, it would remove funding for South Florida clean up programs for the Everglades and the Keys, for Puget Sound, Long Island Sound, San Francisco Bay, Lake Champlain and the Gulf of Mexico.

    Has anybody pointed out that Trump wants to slash food stamps & reinstitute food rations (you know, government cheese)?

    Like, as a low income person, I hate having to use them because I'm unemployed & rather make money for groceries, but giving standard issue rations to poor people doesn't sound very American.

    “Rations” is a bit of a strong word. Think of it more as “trickle-down sustenance”.

    Now that police have made the recommendation, the decision on whether to actually indict Netanyahu rests with Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit, The Jerusalem Post reported.

    On the subject of firearms, maybe it should be made easier for the underrepresented to obtain some of the niftier ones out there. I mean, if just holding one in your hands has an “empowerment” effect on the mind, then it’s worth considering.
