Marijuana Is More Dangerous Than You Think

(snip) But the number of Americans who use cannabis heavily is soaring. In 2006, about 3 million Americans reported using the drug at least 300 times a year, the standard for daily use. By 2017, that number had increased to 8 million—approaching the 12 million Americans who drank every day. Put anot...

PG&E Sparked at Least 1,500 California Fires. Now the Utility Faces Collapse

PG&E Corp. equipment started more than one fire a day in California on average in recent years as a historic drought turned the region into a tinderbox. The utility’s unsuccessful efforts to prevent such blazes have put it in a state of crisis. The fires included one on Oct. 8, 2017, when nearly...

The Mattis Repercussions - WSJ Editorial

(snip) The more lasting damage will derive from the shoddy, humiliating way Mr. Trump treated the secretary and his generals on such a core military issue as deployments in Syria. Jim Mattis is not some neoconservative bent on staying in Syria for years. He is less hawkish on Syria and Iran than nat...

Re: In the Age of Trump, Where Is the Populist Surge? - Gerald Seib

Well, if you want to split hair, go carry a dictionary. For most of their supporters, both Sanders and Trump, populism was about issue that can be summed in one sentence, no thought required.

Equity markets rallied on Monday following reports by U.S. officials that the U.S.-China dinner in Argentina represented tangible trade progress. But stocks ga...

Re: In the Age of Trump, Where Is the Populist Surge? - Gerald Seib

Oh c'mon! Whiny Donny is a populist because he is promising things that he cannot deliver. Because he is trying to "feel the pain" of many who lost their jobs even though he got all those millions from daddy.

In the Age of Trump, Where Is the Populist Surge? - Gerald Seib

(snip) If this year’s midterm elections are any clue, the populist surge on which Mr. Trump capitalized two years ago isn’t spreading widely. In fact, when measured by two key indicators of populist and nationalist sentiment—immigration and free trade—it hasn’t spread much at all. For businesses wor...

Re: Trump visited fire ravaged... Pleasure?

Of course he does not give a damn.. until the new House will demand to see his tax returns; until the new House will demand he account for the emoluments that benefited him and his spawns.
