I am not a fan of the Idiot-in-Chief, but I would welcome efforts to preside from the center of the political spectrum, rather than from the far right. Still, The Chump seems to be stuck permanently in fantasy land, so it might be very difficult to find common ground.

Makes me proud to live in California.
My state currently produces about half of all the solar power for the entire USA, and over 80% of all the geothermal energy for the nation. Without California and the other Blue states, the USA would be a third world country.

I was given intravenous medicine in the ambulance after a stroke, and my doctor told me that it probably helped to prevent worse brain damage. I don't remember the name of the drug, and I still suffered some permanent damage, but it could have been much worse. Modern medicine is amazing.

Not cheap, but they have a reputation for good food.
I remember as a youth being able to go into any mom-and-pop lunch counter and getting a wonderful burger, with fries and a shake, for under a dollar. Forget about the prices, there are no more mom-and-pop lunch counters. Seems like everything today is corporate owned, and the bean-counters won't allow good food on the menus. Corporate policy seems to be to serve the worst food that the public will tolerate.

There is an 800 kilo gorilla in the room that everyone is trying to ignore; namely, that Trump is fruit-loops crazy. Attempts at rational discourse with him, or even about him, are a waste of time, given that his grasp on reality is barely functional.

American manufacturers made the decision to abandon the production of small cars withing American borders, and to emphasize the manufacture of large vehicles. Outside the USA, few people are interested in buying large vehicles. Gas guzzlers are popular in America, not so much elsewhere. So, we can't export what we don't make.
An exception would be Buick. Buick sold about a million vehicles in China last year, while selling only about 1/4th that number in America. Whatever The Chump does will likely mess up the ability to employ Americans who work on Buick exports to China. For historical reasons having to do with the last Chinese emperor, today's Chinese have a fondness for Buicks. Buick makes good vehicles, but most of them guzzle gas.

It is time we start talking about the 800 pound gorilla in the room.......this so-called President is off his rocker. Of course anything and everything he tries to do is suspect. Give him enough time, and he will blow up the whole world.

I have had two episodes of shingles, which the doctor said is rare, although not rare enough, in my opinion. I have sympathy for anyone who has to suffer through this.

Ever since the Electoral College overruled the will of the people, we have had to deal with having an Idiot-in-Chief in the White House. What is going to happen to humanity if something happens requiring a competent adult to deal with it, like the Cuban Missile Crisis?

IMO, the experience of having children is well worth the cost, regardless of its effect on lifespan. Anecdotally, in my own family, I would say that the conclusions in this article are confirmed. Still, I respect the decision of anyone who chooses not to have children. Some people are not suited for raising children, if that is what they decide.
On a somewhat related note, I read an article long ago which stated that women who gave birth and then breast fed were less likely to develop breast cancer. It would be informative to see another study on this subject.

In the last 100 years the population of humans on Earth has increased approximately 4 fold, from well less than 2 billion (that milestone was passed in 1927), to over 7.4 billion today. In the meantime, the carrying capacity of Earth for humans continues to decline, as forests shrink, the ocean is acidified, fish stocks are over harvested, the atmosphere is polluted, and the need for artificial fertilizer increases.
Meanwhile, here in the States, our Idiot-in-Chief says he is no longer going to talk about climate change or global warming. Having insane people in power, whether in North Korea, Russia, or the USA, does nothing to solve the problems facing us.
