Re: A Really great Idea if We Weren't so Divided

The biggest problem I see with diverting Mississippi River water to the Wests isn't cost or environment but who is going to be displaced or have their property taken for the canals. If this idea is implemented it will be tied up in the courts for many years delaying the need to get water to the West.

Re: A Really great Idea if We Weren't so Divided

I’ve had this discussion with friends over the years. Even without flooding carry off high water during rainy season or high rain periods. Set up huge storage basins all over the country and also feed into known aquifers. I'd add once reservoirs/basins are 75-70% full then feed known aquifers. Anot...

Re: The Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

I went to the optometrist today and I was surprised to see they're still requiring masks. I didn't have one and they gave me a disposable mask for my visit. Before seeing the optometrist the technician checked my eyes on a couple of machines and I had to pull the mask down because my breath was fogg...

Re: A Really great Idea if We Weren't so Divided

The idea of diverting Mississippi River water to the West is just that, an idea that won't go anywhere. Instead of diverting water from the Mississippi River why not build canals to channel runoff from areas that flood yearly to reservoirs throughout the West.

Mike Flynn took the 5th when asked if he believed in the peaceful transfer of power. He took an oath. Time to recall and court martial.

Re: California Voters to Decide on Abortion

So one thing I've been wondering about. If states like OK say you can sue anyone involved in an abortion, would that not mean - theoretically - you could sue an abortion clinic in another state, or a pharmacy in that state that sells and ships you RU-486? Here's the interesting thing my brother poi...

They will need 60 votes to break the filibuster Or the Democrats can change the rule and either end the filibuster or suspend it. I favor ending it now because if the republicans take control of the Senate next year it will be hard for them to re-implement it because it would give the Democrats the...
