"So if we eliminate whatever hit the planet, the last time we saw this many extinctions would go back even further, strengthening my point.  Of course we’re causing and exacerbating climate change.  It doesn’t take long to…"

"Once again, we’re seeing extinctions at a faster rate than at any time since there were dinosaurs. Normal climate cycles couldn’t do that because we don’t measure them in, I don’t know, 50 million year increments. Something…"

Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)

Posted on May 17, 2019 at 9:14pm 23 Comments

American politics is now dangerously less functional than it was a few decades ago. These changes for the worse are mainly due to the actions of three men. All are Republicans, but their sins aren’t based on political ideology per se. They’re based on interfering with the processes that America depends on. 

The first of the three is Newt Gingrich. He is the man most responsible for damned near destroying working relationships between Democrats and Republicans. He made…
