On Trump's "truths" about California wildfires:

Quote:
Through the national forests, national parks, Bureau of Land Management, and others, the federal government manages more than 40 percent of California’s total acreage, as of 2015. The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, by comparison, manages a little more than 30 percent.


Quote:
The 2017 U.S. Forest Service Report, for example, noted that the federal government had “treated” only about a quarter of federal land that ought to be managed through forest thinning or controlled burns.

In California, the Forest Service performs some sort of fire risk reduction on between 200,000 and 300,000 acres of federal land each year. That amounts to between 1 and 1.5 percent of the 20 million acres of national forest in the state.


Quote:
The Trump administration’s own budget request for the current fiscal year and the coming one proposed slashing tens of millions of dollars from the Department of Interior and U.S. Forest Service budgets dedicated to the kind of tree clearing and other forest management work experts say is needed. And it’s just one example of how the federal government is still not prioritizing fire mitigation to the scale that is needed, according to forestry experts.

Propaganda cost us lives and valuable time.


This is the problem we have with Trump supporters. We can cite facts left and right, and they won't care. They're like Bible fundamentalists or flat earth believers.

Does Trump honestly believe people need to show ID to buy cereal? He said this last Summer, but I guess he could have been misinformed(?) or perhaps he misspoke (somehow), but he said it again today... :unsure:

And congrats to Arizona for voting for Sinema -- first female Senator to represent the state, and first Democrat in 24 years.

Trump was even more horrible over the weekend. He acting like an utter fool when he couldn't even remember the town he just visited. How does he mix up Paradise with Pleasure? Unless he has a very dirty mind. And then arguing raking leaves would have solved the problem. He is kissing California good bye for the Republicans for a generation at this point.

He's a fucking moron when he's left to his own devices. But Republicans don't care. They sold their soul to have someone in power instead of Democrats, and they'd rather sacrifice morals in order to back a man who clearly has staunch support across America, in spite of himself.

Well, he is 72 years old. People forget that just because he has the title of president. Being old does make you forgetful and clumsy, but it also makes you not give a shit about being forgetful and clumsy. It would be a lot worse if the president was 40 years old with the same personality.

I don't see the issue with Ivanka using her private email to send emails. I just read the headline, so I know nothing about this topic other than basic common sense and understanding. Surely the US are not so full of Nazis that they can't just say "it was a mistake, we'll let it slide, but use your gov email in future". Give her a fucking break. She's a fashion designer, not a politician.

Well, Hillary was criticized by Republicans for that before, so naturally when a Republican trips up in the same way the Democrats will be all over it.

Hilary is a politician, and should have known better. But even with her "crimes", I feel like it doesn't really matter.

It's obviously a stupid gotchya story. Ivanka team's response was on point

"To address misinformation being peddled about Ms. Trump's personal email, she did not create a private server in her house or office, there was never classified information transmitted, the account was never transferred or housed at Trump Organization, no emails were ever deleted, and the emails have been retained in the official account in conformity with records preservation laws and rules."

In addition she never had nearly as much power as Clinton was as Secretary of State, nor is Ivanka running for president

I think this post should be preserved for the future. No way does that not ever happen at some point.

That would be a tough sell.

Hillary will be 73 by the time next election goes around. I'm sure Michelle is at this point a more viable female candidate.And even if say Trump gets elected again, she'll only be 43 by the end of his second term. I doubt our country would really double down on a Trump for 16 years straight. To have them in office until possibly 2030 is ludicrous.

I’d vote for Michelle over just about anyone on either side, but dynasty politicians were destroyed in the last election. Though Ivanka would have the advantage of being the first Really Hot president.

The Dems need someone with a fresh name. So I will support my fellow Ohioan Sherrod Brown until someone else wins me over. Liz missed her chance and Kamala is just a remake of Hilary.

Sherrod Brown seems cool, but the name doesn't sound presidential, but I guess that shouldn't matter.
I'd like to see the dems run with a more fashionable choice like Ocasio-Cortez (also filling the really hot factor) or O'Rourke.

I couldn't care less who runs, but it would be nice to have proper politicians for a change. Instead of the pantomime characters of the last 20 years. George W. Bush was a moron. Then the token [whitest] black dude. Then Hillary and Trump. Does the US even have respectable politicians?

Ocasio-Cortez is 29 and you need to be over 35 to run. She's also a communist

Sherrod Brown would get put in the friend zone by America while they fuck Trump

Interesting, so you can be too young but not too old to be president?

You think folks would be happy he's getting troops out of the endless interventionism or do we have a case of folks wanting to keep us in endless war. Frankly, I'm tired of it. Should have never been in Syria funding and supporting anti Assad rebel terrorists and staying in Afghanistan in the most unwinnable unconquerable territory of all time after UBL was declared killed.

I prefer Trump's foreign policy to the fucking disastrous Bush and Obama, between reducing wars more than starting them, North Korea, etc.
