Re: Coal miners reject retraining

Excellent video JQP. Simply sending someone to training doesn't cut it. Nobody is going to sign up for a retraining program when there is no vision for how that training will turn into a job. This program starts with a job. Toyota has a manufacturing plant in West Virginia in a small town called Buf...

Re: Donna Brazile

I was just thinking that Trump may have been the worst thing that happened to the Republican party. He's created an even larger divide. The public dialog between the White House and the Bush family is just the most recent.

Re: First Charges filed by Mueller

It seems unlikely that Trump actually had anything to do with this fiasco. I don't like the guy and think he's an imbecile, but if he were really pulling strings, he wouldn't have done some of the things he's done. He's not completely stupid. He really believes this whole Russian thing is a witch hu...

Re: 46% of Americans think the media make up stories about Trump

Bias exists in anything created by humans. That includes fact checking sites. What makes fact checking sites like Snopes different to me, is they include links and references that allow you to see for yourself. The very nature of fact checking includes making an opinionated statement. Whether or not...

Re: In Rural Ohio, Trump Voters Wait For Corporations To Relocate To Them

Marrysville is pretty rural. A few miles outside of Columbus, it's too far to be considered a suburb. Outside of Marrysville is home to a Honda Manufacturing plant. Honda chose the location because it was close enough to Columbus for the airport but far enough away that they could get cheap land and...

Re: NoCal Fires

I was looking to get into that housing market a year or so ago. Inventories were low and prices high. Enrollment at Sonoma State University is up, contributing to a shortage of rental property (which is why I was looking to buy). Seemed like a good investment. Santa Rosa is close enough that many st...

Re: Horrible news from De La Salle up north

It is true that we should not draw any conclusions ourselves. We may never know what really happened as it's unlikely that anyone close to this will share details. I would hate for anyone's life to be ruined by a false accusation so it's probably best to reserve any comment until more is known. At t...

Re: JFK assassination docs scheduled for 2013 release pushed out

I have the benefit of living near Dallas now and I have visited the Sixth Floor Museum a couple of times now. It's a pretty fascinating place. There you have an opportunity to stand at a window nearby where the shots were fired from and look down at the location where Kennedy was when he was hit. Yo...

Re: 46% of Americans think the media make up stories about Trump

How do you educate when there is no credible source of the truth? The answer is to teach people critical thinking skills. It is incredible to me how many people fall for the click-bait headlines from "news" sites created for the sole purpose to deceive. They use common credible sources as a part of ...

Re: NoCal Fires

You couldn't get to Santa Rosa during the height of the fires. The 101 was closed. The fire jumped across the 101 and burned a Hilton Hotel ... to the ground. The death toll climbed to 42 and it seems likely it won't grow much further. I read one report where the structures lost was at 8400 and insu...

Re: 46% of Americans think the media make up stories about Trump

Media bias. It is real. Complete fabrication. Not so much. Understanding the difference takes independent thinking and reading beyond the headlines. Something increasingly rare these days. The purpose of a headline is to pique interest enough to get someone to read the story. When all you do is read...

I'm sorry. What was that you said? Rape "could happen at any school and usually does"? We're talking High School here. I find it exceptionally difficult to believe that there is rampant rape on High School campuses across the nation but only De La Salle manages to make the news. Two does not make a ...

Re: NoCal Fires

I'm not so sure about the necessary part, especially when you consider where these fires started and the path they took. They didn't start in some remote area and over a period of days overtook a few homes nestled in those remote areas. These recent fires were in heavily populated areas and then spr...

NoCal Fires

Devastation. Complete destruction. Fire so hot it burned through fireproof safes, melted the aluminum wheels of vehicles left behind and leveled entire neighborhoods. 35 (maybe 38) are dead and rising. Average age at one point was 75 as the elderly were unable to flee the fast moving flames. 5700 st...

Re: Viva Las Vegas

The Mandalay Bay may be in some trouble if they find that the Hotel ignored the reports of a security guard being shot and that subsequently allowed the shooter to kill and injure so many people. They certainly have some explaining to do. Questions being asked are: 1) What occurred that allowed a pe...

We all are shocked and saddened by mass shootings. Pretending that advocates for guns somehow advocate for mass shootings is insulting to everyone. Despite the fact that people die by guns every day, the Nation only pays attention when these mass shootings occur. That's why I'm focusing on that issu...

Friday Night Lights takes on a new meaning

I read an article in the OC Register yesterday that contained highlights of the Pacifica v Kennedy game. There was a somber cloud hanging over the game as both programs were affected by the Las Vegas shooting. Pacifica is doing very well this season and racked up another lopsided victory, but the ce...

Re: Viva Las Vegas

I really can't find an apt comparison for what we experience in these mass shootings. I agree that if someone wants to go out with a bang and kill a bunch of people, there are numerous ways they can do that. Drive a car into a crowd, set off a bomb, use a poison gas or some sort of sabotage even. La...

We're learning more every day. One of the more astonishing facts to me is that everything this guy acquired and used appears to have been done legally.
