In the thumb i see maybe 3 Hillary signs, going 30mi to work, but there is a Trump sign that someone had hand painted on a 4 X 8 sheet of plywood, and 2 more that someone had painted on their fences, I literal see as many signs that people took the time and effort to make themselves as I see democratic party supplied signs. There are boat-loads of Trump Signs from the campaign as well.

I don't know what to think, I don't trust any of the MSM polls.

When I heard Trump make that statement, the impression I got is he was referring predominately toward the criminals that escort the illegals across the border and the gang members who would blend in with them as the infiltrated the US.

Of course it's hard to tell Trump is almost inarticulate, his thought pattern is more squirrelly than most ADHD 13 year olds.

In addition he went on record stating that we should not accept any refugees from Syria because there are terrorists among them. He also stated that we should ban any Muslims from entering the country.

Technically Muslim are already banned, because to immigrate into the US you have to affirm that you don't seek the overthrow of the US Government through violence and will obey US laws and Islam as defined by the Quran requires the faithful to fight a Jihad to establish a Caliphate (a religious dictatorship), and holds Sharia law superior to any other legal system.

I understand why people distrust Trump on "Women's Rights", what I don't understand is why HRC gets a free pass, at best she's a serial enabler to her Husband's sexual predations, at worst Bill fucked them physically and Hillary fucked them psychologically.

At least Trump doesn't blame the victims like Hillary does.

Your link article is confusing, they seem to be use "expired" and "Withdraws" interchangeably, are you saying that not voluntarily being bond by an expired treaty is cheating?

The United States withdrew from the landmark 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty on June 13. .... President George W. Bush, who had announced the U.S. pullout six months earlier, issued a short written statement the day the treaty expired.

Russia didn't hack no emails, shit like that is almost always an inside job. Sure it could happen, more likely somebody had a stupid simple pasword. Cops have a saying "Check the Inlaws before the Outlaws". I'm sure Putin helps wikileaks a lot, being former KGB he knows his shit is tight, so just keeping it going means the odds favor him, but actively participating is likely below his pay grade.

Funny thing, the Afghan mujahideen, was armed to fight the Soviets, and the Syrian opposition was armed to fight the long-time Soviet Ally, Bashar al-Assad. The bottom line is both are equally complicit in most of the world's serious problems.
The way thing are now in a couple years, the Russians throw weight will have gone up so dramatically, there's no sense in targeting their ICBMs now because even one can inflict catastrophic losses, we might just as well point every thing we have at Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Nizhny Novgorod and Samara.

Another point is DDOS attacks are conducted by bot nets of zombified computers, most of us /.ers take a considerable amount of pride in having our infernal machines do our bidding and only our bidding. Having one of my machines commandeered for a DDoS attack would be rankling for me and most here; I don't mind you making a statement with your resources, but trying to use mine to make your statement is just going to piss me off.

If this leads to some senile Grandma pissing her panties in the White House deciding the Internet needs her protection from itself, I'm going to be beyond pissed off.

Here's how it work,

  1. the reactor heats pressurized water in the primary loop
  2. the hot pressurized water in the primary loop heats the very pure treated water in the secondary loop and boils it,
  3. the cooler primary loop water returns to the reactor for reheating
  4. the high pressure steam in the secondary loop propels the turbine to make the alternator turn,
  5. the turbine exhaust consisting of steam is piped into the condensers inside the cooling tower,
  6. external water is sprayed on the hot condenser pipe creating steam, which is lighter than air,
  7. the rising steam creates a slight vacuum inside the cooling tower that draws in large amounts of air to further cool the condensers.
  8. the secondary loop water is returned to be reheated

So anything you can see has 3 degrees of separation from the reactor
