Trump is too busy starting a war with China by talking to Taiwan.
Yeah, that's the last straw. Taking a congratulatory phone call from a foreign leader is totally going to push China into attacking us. But the Obama administration selling Taiwan billions of dollars worth of sophisticated weapons systems, that's nothing that the Chinese would worry about.
Do you even listen to yourself?
the impacts of climate change were already factors in the conflicts driving a current crisis of migration into Europe, having been linked to the Arab Spring, the war in Syria and the Boko Haram terrorist insurgency
Boko Haram's name, translated, means "Western/Non-Islamic Education Is A Sin." They kill and rape in the name of that message. TFS directly links Boko Haram's insurgency to climate change.
It is a read hearing
The term you're looking for is "red herring." Red, the color, and herring, the fish. It comes from a technique used in training and testing fox hounds, to see if they can be too easily distracted.
So you're right, but only by accident, for the wrong reasons. The summary is trying to distract you from the evils of groups like Boko Haram by somehow making their willingness to slaughter villages and take hundreds of young girls into the jungle where they are then sold off as sex slaves somehow about climate change, rather than about the very reasons they plainly state that they do those exact things. People like you who try to tell those Africans that they're too dumb to know what they're saying, and that it's really the fault of climate change that they're murdering and raping their way through areas they're trying to convert to Islam
Which "smooth talk" is it that you think is somehow more persuasive in the context of climate change that makes someone who would otherwise not murder a girl's family in front of her eyes before assigning her to a rape camp
In stark contrast, Obama bailed out GM, kept all 1.5 million jobs
And ripped off all of the GM stock holders by stealing their shares and giving them to union cronies in a blatant quid pro quo. Yes, wonderful.
How can you keep saying that while Trump keeps proving that he's only draining the swamp because everyone he wants to hire is at the bottom?
People keep repeating this meme, but always carefully avoid mentioning which "bottom," for example, is occupied by, say, Gen. Mattis. Or former Sec. Chao, or Gov. Haley. Be specific. In which way are these people the "bottom" of something? They're all going to agree to never lobby for foreign entities, and go half a decade after they leave office before they can do that work domestically. Which awfulness do they represent, to you?
Odd things happen, such as Chernobyl and Fukushima, yes.
Well, let's be honest: neither of those incidents were odd or unforeseeable. In the case of Chernobyl, we had an experimental reactor (and I don't mean it was new - I mean it was specifically built for them to screw around with and see what happens) designed with a highly positive void coefficient. It was an insane design that was not passively safe and it was purposely operated in a reckless manner. The "accident" that took that place down happened when they shut off the already limited safety features and ran more experiments. Keep doing that over and over in a design that isn't passively safe and you almost can't help but have it end in disaster. If nothing else, any rational person could easily see that what they were doing was dangerous as Hell. And the Soviets knew what they were doing was dangerous as Hell which is why they did it there and not next to, say, Moscow for instance.
In the case of Fukushima, the plant design's manufacturer (GE) identified design flaws in the plant's containment measures back in the 1970s. And they came up with a remediation plan and published it to everyone running that design. In the 1970s. And the company operating the plant at Fukushima chose not to do what GE told them they needed to do in order to ensure containment in the event of a catastrophic failure. And the regulators in charge of ensuring the plant was operated safely allowed them to do that. So the plant ran for decades with a known design problem and nobody did anything about it. So again, this wasn't exactly a surprise that as soon as something went wrong, bad stuff happened.
Ain't no magic here: if you run known-unsafe designs, you're risking bad things happening. If you run safe designs, then catastrophic failures do not (and, physically, cannot) result in catastrophic consequences.
Something like that but the only way to get away from his idiocy was to get a new job.
The worst part is that he was a really good guy. I personally liked and still do like him but working for him was terrible.

You just described the very essence of Californian political culture, and increasingly NY, as well.
And who says I hate California? I'm just pointing out that the people in that state got their wish at the polls, and all of their electoral votes went to the candidate that best exemplifies the condescending elitism, corruption, and contempt for the middle class that you seem to treasure. So what's not to like, right?
Because that's how you get audited. Just think about how many people were mysteriously audited under the Clinton administration. Do you not think that Trump would pull the same stunt?
Not a good look for a company that's looking to be acquired by a bigger fish.
Doesn't matter. Any sane person wouldn't have voted for either. Unfortunately, that means 50% of the US isn't sane (and the other 50% is mostly apathetic).
One of the two of them was going to win. They're both annoying, though Clinton is far more sinister. Regardless, whoever one was going to shape the Supreme Court for decades after their turn as POTUS is long gone. Clinton said she'd be choosing activists to "reinterpret" the Constitution so she could get things done that she couldn't get through a congress that didn't agree with her agenda. Trump said he'd pick from a list of SCOTUS candidates that he published well in advance, most of whom are textbook constructionists disinclined to allow the court to be treated like a way to circumvent the legislature. That shit matters. Any "sane person" would choose the lesser of two short-term evils in happy exchange for not screwing the court up by turning it into a newly empowered lefty activist legislative branch.
