    I'm complaining about the president waiving environmental laws to expedite thw will of congress that he claims to disagree with.

    Does not compute.

    I am going to suspect there is a order of importance of laws, I know there is in other areas, so I suspect they know what they are doing. I am sure that if they are wrong, someone will sue the government for that. I would suspect that the government "waving" the laws is just a click-bait article header not understanding the precedence, but I might be wrong.

    The simplest example for precedence I can give you is from the CA driving code - in a 4 way stop (or all way stop, I suspect), the first one to arrive to a stop has the right of way, but if multiple cars arrive to the stop at the same time, the one on the right has the right of way - so, we have 2 laws here, but one of them has precedence over the other. If a guy on the left stopped first, he has right of way even tho the guy on the right has the right of way if they arrived to a stop at the same time.

    I would imagine that's exactly what happened here and the government had to follow that precedence of laws. I just do not see any reason for the Biden administration which is on record as opposing the waste of money on the wall not to do so. Let's just say that I find online or newspaper articles on the interpretation of law to be of suspect quality vs. actual people that deal with the law - and that's what I believe is happening here.

    Trump chatted about nuclear submarines secrets with an Australian Mar a Lago member, who shared information with friends and media. Information included how many warheads on ships, how close they could get without being detected, etc.

    But Biden is old.

    With himself as Exhibit A, Trump said "we have the worst education in the large world, the world we know". As opposed to the small world, I guess?

    And while he threatens to execute General Millie, said shoplifting suspects should be killed without charges or trial, declared immigrants are poisoning our blood, Newsweek blamed Biden's language for increase in political violence.

    I'd still gladly take Sanders over either Biden or Trump.

    He said he loves Hannibal Lecter. Because Lecter is a great actor who loves him. Lecter of course is fictional character played by Anthony Hopkins, who famously dislikes politics and never said he loves Trump.

    Also, he has a better body than Biden.

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will run for president as an independent and drop his Democratic primary bid

    More than a little funny that Republicans were eagerly funding Kennedy when he was running against Biden, but now that he's decided to run in the general, they're afraid he'll take more votes from Trump.

    And that's probably a correct calculation. The democratic voters who'd vote for anyone named Kennedy are mostly dead now, and Trump and Kennedy will be splitting the conspiracy theorist/anti-establishment/anti-science/pro-Putin voters.

    Alabama banned a children's book titled Read Me a Story, Stella. The book is about a brother and sister who build a dog house together. No sex, no profanity, no politics, no queers. The book was banned following complaint by hate group Clean Up Alabama. Because the author's name is Marie-Louise Gay.

    It occurs to me that Lincoln could have made a wiser decision when he was informed that the South wanted to secede from the Union. Instead of that “a house divided” nonsense, he should have just gone with “Bye bye, nut jobs”.

    I thought maybe it was because a girl was building things. They will find anything to ban a book down there.
