Sometimes the appropriate response to a pile of nonsense is just to call it what it is: bullshit.William Taylor.e wrote:You must be either a very insecure or angry person, FC. Can't you respond with some dignity? Why not present an inteligent answer? My point is, a cornered rat bites like crazy because he feels threatened. If we slacked off our Rat in Office you might see some results. It is in your best interest. It is basic human nature but then again I guess you know little about that. Instead of being a quisquilian xanthodontous ructabunde, why not try being civil? It gets much much better results in life, really, it does.Fortune Cookie wrote: Bullshit.
Oh Karly, when will the world be right again? The Trumpster was as obliviously stupid as ever when he slapped those tariffs on China. Did he even consider the blowback from that idiocy?Karly wrote: The Dow dropped over 700 points today due to the a*hole Trump and his dumb ideas.

"NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stocks slumped on Thursday as President Donald Trump's move to impose tariffs on up to $60 billion of Chinese imports drove fears about the impact on the global economy, fueling the biggest percentage declines in Wall Street's three major indexes since they entered correction territory six weeks ago."
Since Scott Pruitt took the helm of the Environmental Protection Agency in early 2017, the EPA has consistently refused to release basic information, blocked reporters from attending agency events, and attacked journalists and outlets whose coverage it didn't like. This antagonistic stance toward the media mirrors President Donald Trump’s unprecedented war against the press, which Media Matters has chronicled.
Seeking a reset after a year of the agency’s attacks and obfuscation, the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ) sent a letter to the EPA’s press office in January in the hopes of improving journalists’ access to EPA information and “begin[ning] a conversation about journalists’ basic needs.” The letter made five requests, which the group summarized on its website:
1. Respond to inquiries in a meaningful and timely manner, arranging interviews with subject matter experts.
2. Distribute all press releases and advisories, to all who request them, not just to a select audience.
3. Hold open press briefings on significant news. Invite all regular beat reporters to in-person briefings held at EPA headquarters; provide web conferencing and teleconference access for all interested reporters outside the Washington area.
4. Reinstate the practice of publishing a weekly list of the EPA administrator’s scheduled public appearances.
5. Resume the practice of publishing an up-to-date calendar of all the EPA administrator’s meetings — not just public events.
